"B.B", That's Me! [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 31 December 1942

That's Me! The following lines were forwarded from New Guinea by Pte. N. Graetz to his parents at Loxton. Cover me deep in the heart of the ashes Take me out of my old fashioned tomb, Cut the tin right away from my shoulders, And far a.way in the air let me zoom. Place a crust o'er my head to conceal me, Or just bury me deep in the mire, With a dark sodden mess to surround me. And then place me over the fire. Tear my innards apart and then stew me. But still it is my firm belief, That I'll come back at night time to haunt you, And I'll be the same "Bully Beef.

University Education in Australia To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 31 December 1942

University Education Australia To the Editor Sir,—I do not think. Sir Robert1 Nicholls was quite fair to Australians in his comparison between California and Australia at the Renmarlc High School speech day recently. He said that the former with the same popu- j lation had 40,000 attending universi- ; ties while the latter had about 8,000. ' California's area is set out at about 156,000 square miles (about half that j of N.S.W.) Australia's area is ap- i proximately 3,000,000 square miles. This concentration of population re moves several of the factors which militate against' higher education in Australia, viz. distance, finance, and ■ breaking up of family circles. Dis- i tance from educational centres with j the expense of boarding- out mem- ; bers of families are in many cases the j cause of failure by parents to allow ; their children to' attend school beyond j the primary standard; Were those j centres more accessible and with a i curriculum suited to the requirements ! of the...

Democracy v. Communism To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 31 December 1942

Democracy v. Communism To the Editor Sir,—Producers are beginning- to wonder what their future will be after the war. At-present all their'efforts are controlled by the Federal Govern ment, and the appointment of agri cultural Commission (With no farmers on same in this district) is just about the limit, the committee having the j power -(perhaps)- of -commandeering' the plant 'of one up to date farmer who has taken every care with liis im plements and lending to a neighbour who has through "neglect", a worn out plant. The latest development of sending delegates , to Russia to inquire into agricultural advantages or disabili ties and perhaps copy the methods used is carrying things to an ex treme." As the Hon. .C. R. Cudmore remarked, everything -^e do is ^on trolled but: we' do not-' want this "to continue after the war,? , Wakex up farmers and farmers' or ganizations before youV are shackled to some- "6-year plan" "'and made I slaves of Cotnmunisum i" fours etc., J.

TRANSPORT PROBLEMS America Handles Mamoth Undertaking [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 31 December 1942

TRANSPORT PRpjSfcfcMS America Handles Mamoth Undertaking In Australia, transportation problems have been further intensified- by the creation of extensive war-plants em ploying thousands of workers in centres not previously well served by trans port facilities. Motor buses and auto mobiles have materially helped to over come some of the bottlenecks. In the U.S.A., with its colossal war pro duction programme, the same prob lems of transporting war workers to and from factories have and are being solved by the extensive use of motor vehicles, particularly motor buses. A striking instance of this was the case of Henry Ford's new huge aircraft assembly plant at Willow Run, located 27 miles out of Detroit, where, prior to the selection of the site, there were no roads and.no transport facilities. The plant—one of the world's largest— was brought into being for the assem bly of four-engined bombers. When in full production, the potential pay roll would provide for 60,000 workers most of w...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Proposed Alteration to Shopping Hours for Fruit Harvest To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 31 December 1942

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Proposed Alteration Shopping Hours for Fruit Harvest To the Editor. Sir,—The proposal of the dried fruits authorities to change the shopping hours by regulation, for the harvest period calls for some comment from the point of view of the shop assist ant. Firstly it seems doubtful wheth er the numbers of workers lilcely to be secured if the scheme was put into operation, would justify, the . trouble which would have to be gone to. The stores are already badly understaffed and this week great difficulty has been experienced in trying to "catch up" after the holidays. With the advent of an influx of pickers the trade of the stores is likely to. be greatly increased and staffs will be "all out" to cope with the. position. Many of the shop hands are now working ex ceptionally long hours, some ' filling an additional business position at night besides their day duty. More than a dozen .are engaged regularly on air. spotting, while others are doing other voluntary wor...

America Turns to Synthetic Rubber # The revolutionary effects of the loss of America's crude rubber supplies from the Far East (approximately 800,000 tons a year) on that Nation's huge rubber manufacturing industry, and the switching over to an alterna tive is seen in the latest action of the U.S.A. War Production Board. That all-powerful authority has established within itself a Committee headed by Dr. H. Simmons, President of the University of Akron (the hub of the U.S.A. rubber industry), to educate all members of the American rubber industry as rapidly and correctly as possible in the use of synthetic rubber. The educational programme will be concerned with the collection, digestion and dissemination of the best of the information from all companies manu facturing products from synthetic rub ber, or supplying rubber chemicals to the rubber manufacturers; that is, with setting itself up as an authority at this stage on the best methods for synthetic rubber usage.
