BOWLING NOTES By "Yer Must Be Up" Bowlers will be glad to know that H. B. Walker is doing well after his recent operation. I met Bert Mur ray, of Hawthorn, who is a brother-in law of H.B. Bert said that he is most anxious to come to Renmark for the May carnival as are also a party of about 15 bowlers. I also met "Brockie" Brown at South Park greens. "Brockie" told me to tell the club that they missed the Renmark Carnival very much last year. ''When they fiv the dates," he said, "tell them not to clash with Mildura, as we all time our annual holidays and will lit both carnivals in." While in Adelaide I played on the South Park greens.

I told him of the excellence of Vic McLean's, greens. We talked about the future when I hope my forecast comes true, namely the big round trip, starting in Adelaide, the...

A flreat deal can still happen to upset our calculations in the form of adverfee vfeather conditions. Heat waves, and rain may stitt ba a factor to bo contended with. However we are assuming tor the purpose of calculating production that nothing is to go wrong with the normal, development of the fruit until it matures.

NEMO'S HORTICULTURAL NOTES THE BROTHERHOOD OF MAN As the New Year is upon us I want to wish the readers of this - column a very happy New Year. Under the circumstances this wish seems rather ironical, so if you cannot have a happy New Year, let it be a happier 1943 than 1942, and may we all join in the hope that this coming year will see an end to this seeming endless slaughter of the best of our manhood. The King, in the Christmas message to the Empire, finished by dwelling on the thetne of an ideal to which' we can well subscribe a fervent amen.—The brotherhood of This can only be achieved by a change of heart by those who now have no thought other than exploita tion and the accumulation of what the world calls £ s. d. The nearest approach of the Brotherhood of man is to be found in our big ally Russia but that is another story which may some day come to influence the des tinies of the world.

AUSTRALIA'S SKYWATCHERS [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 31 December 1942
AUSTRALIA'S SKY WATCHERS (By a Special Correspondent) „ (Everyone remembers vividly the story of the great German air attack on Great Britain In 1940, when wave after wave of Nazi bombers came over in one of the greatest air blitzes of history. One remembers, too, how the attack was turned, and Hitler's great effort failed in its chief ob jective.. Behind the dramatic page in his tory lies another story, a story which has been written at much greater length in official files than in the columns of the newspapers; but a story no less vivid, or important, than the story of the defenders who per formed the actual deeds of valour in the air. It is the story of the Royal i Observer Corps, an organization of British men and women whose work in spotting and reporting enemy air craft movements is officially acknow ledged to have played an important part in the turning of Germany's air blitz on Britain. The purpose of this article is to tell briefly of the Australian counterpart of the Royal...
From the Barmera District [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 31 December 1942
From the Barmera District ^ Mr. C. Till, of Barmera, reports that ■?© per cent of the cards sent out to growers in the district have been re turned. He had received a number ■9f letters from people seeking employ ment, but these were small in rela tion to the numbers of workers re quired. " Growers generally were re alizing- this year that providing' accom modation would go a long way toward ■obtaining the pickers who would be available." Mr. A. A. ,T. Tonkin has pointed ■out that the paragraph appearing in last week's "Pioneer'' in reference to the Barmera attitude of the proposed •shopping hours alteration, may have been misleading. The view's quoted had been expressed by individual trad «rs, but the Barmera residents, he points out, had not considered the matter. The harvest labour com mittee there had not yet had an op ■poi'tunity of expressing its idea on ■the seasonal trading hours. When they did bo a further discussion would take place with the traders.
