GENERAL TOPICS FROM FROGMORE [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 6 April 1951

GENERAL TOPICS FROM FROGMORE The long dry spell continues and unless soaking rains are had in the near future sowing of oats and wheat will be seri ously affected. The ground in most parts is very hard, thus preventing proper ploughing. Numbers of graziers have com pleted crutching or are still in the process of doing .so. Many who crutched early are quite pleased with the results in that such comparatively clean wool has been got. Boorowa ie certainly not the only place over-run with rats. Quite a few local householders are having considerable trouble trying to rid their homes of the vermin which are. attacking home gardens,, amongst other things. . - Many locals are doing quite well out of the rabbits, although 4/- lb. seems the best price yet obtained. It is hoped that prices of skins will rise in the near future when weekly sales will replace the present threeweek ly, sales. _ .

As a matter of fact, this newspaper started ofE as a tree.

LIBERALS WILL NOT CONTEST HUME Support For Col. C. G. Anderson The Liberal Party will not contest Hume at the coming election as part of the plan to achieve com plete overall unity of pur pose.
