Farmers in Conference Membership Drive Mooted UNION'S OBJECTIVE Perth, This Afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 12 February 1948
Farmers in Conference &nbsp; Membership Drive Mooted UNION'S OBJECTIVE Perth, This Afternoon. . A drive for a 100 per cent. member- ship "muster" of all primary producers in the Farmers' Union is to be made. At to-day's conference of the Union in Perth it was decided that branches throughout the State should take action to increase membership. An original motion suggested that more paid organisers should be employ- ed by the Union to recruit new mem- bers, but the Donnybrook delegate (Mr. &nbsp; P. Ladyman) secured an amendment &nbsp; that the work should be done by branches. Paid organisers would be too expensive, he said. "Any fool can muster a big mob of cattle in the middle of a paddock, but it takes a smart fellow to get the stragglers out of the scrub," he said. The Farmers' Union has now about 8,600 members.
Commodity Prices FALLS IN U.S. CONTINUE Losing Some of Momentum WHEAT VALUES DOWN New York, February 11. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 12 February 1948
Commodity Prices FALLS IN U.S. CONTINUE Losing Some of Momentum WHEAT VALUES DOWN New York, February 11. Prices fell again on the Commodity and Securities Markets to-day, but the slide appeared to be losing some of its momentum. Grains were sharply lower on the Chicago Board of Trade at the end of the day's trading after a mid- session rally had failed to hold wheat, which began by dropping the full per- missible limit of 8d. Corn and oats were also down, but not to the limit. Cotton made a better recovery. The pig market rallied as farmers again held livestock in a move to boost prices after Monday's big break which sent prices to the lowest level for sixteen months. Stocks on the New York Exchange eased from the start, but declines were less precipitous than they were yes- terday. At the close the Market was irregular, but most of the losses were limited to A6/2 per share or less. The turnover was 1,500,000 shares. Dropping United States prices were reflected in Toronto, Winnipeg ...
High School Re-Opens Influx of New Students ACCOMMODATION TAXED [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 12 February 1948
High School Re-Opens Influx of New Students ACCOMMODATION TAXED When the scholastic year of the Ger- aldton High School opened on Tuesday 140 new pupils were enrolled to bring the total number of students in atten- dance at the school to 312, which figure exceeds that of the previous year by sixty-two. The headmaster (Mr. R. G. Evans) explained yesterday that as the school was built to house 250 students only, accomodation was now severely taxed. Further new enrolments were expected and it was not improbable that the attendance figure would be brought up to 350 pupils. There have been a number of changes in the teaching staff. Mr. J. Howieson, who was the first-master since 1941, has been transferred to the Northam High School, and is being temporarily replaced by Mr. F. S. Andrew until the first-master's succes- sor (Mr. G. Lambert), formerly of the Eastern Goldfields High School, and who is at present on long service leave, resumes teaching at the beginning of the third term. Mr. ...
