THE TYRANNY OF RAILED WHEELS [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 6 April 1951

W. TYRANNY OF RAM) WHEELS Though it hurt« us, change marches on with unetayed tread. Nothing fin thi. world is certain but the cer tainty ^fvVhange, and we cannot stop ft, though we m£y strive to do so. Here in Australia we have many examples of struggles be i ing put tip to preserve the old in face of the new; perhaps the most outstanding of such is the, attempt to holster up what has become a largely outmoded means of transport— the rail ways.* ?. . ? Transport looms larger every year in the needs of the modern community, yet in Australia we remain, so far, bound to the old railed wheels that are now ali most obsolete, and denied the full use of faster, cheaper, more efficient aud more convenient means of carrying our goods those who' produce them to those who would use them. How simple, how troutole-free and how much cheaper in human effort it would be to load trac tors and heavy farm machinery, for instance, upon a motor truck at the assembly plant and earry it so for hundreds o...

FARMERS & SETTLERS' ASSOCIATION Roll In And Roll Up! [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 6 April 1951

FARMERS & SETTLERS' ASSOCIATION Roll In And Roll Up! The Boorowa branch of the Farmers and Settlers' Association has, in conjunc tion with the Acsociaton's organiser (Mr, Scott), con ducted an extensive drive to increase an already very large membership. Results so far have been very gratifying, and it Is interesting to note the keenness of over 94 per cent, of farmers and graz iers to join this old-established and respected Association. The figures quoted above are all the more remarkable in view .of the apparently prosperous times being enjoyed by most men on the land, and speak highly not only of the activities and results of tn'e F.S.A., but also of the intelligence and fore sight of the man on the land, in looking to an unknown fu-- ture, and, to a well-known As sociation who, past, present and future, always has, and will, put the interests of those it serves to the forefront in Xhe cause 'of justice and decent liv ing.

SJ\ LAMENT FROM WEST WYALONG The Vice Squad came down on the township. Like a volley of light from the sun, And the starting price bookies and gamblers, Have gone to the bush on the run. We were just settljug down to cur pleasures, Of gambling and frolic and beer, For our Jubilee Week was com mencing And the folk from the coun try were here. Things were just getting good in the bar rooms, The. beer was abundant and cool, And the starting price bookies were busy, Extracting the cash from the fool. , The cove who can pick all the winners, Was showing us how it was done, While he carefully stuffed all his pockets With the lovely cash he had won .

EMPIRE FILMS FOR WEEK-END [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 6 April 1951

empire films for Week-end No film made within the last two years has been so eagerly awaited as Alfred , Hitchcock's 'UNDER CAPRICORN,' his second in technicolour for Trans atlantic Pictures, with Ingrid Bergman, Joseph Cotton and Michael Wilding in . the three mam- pans. The story is set in the Sydney of 1831, when the growing British colony was being built up mainly by the work of con victs who, after serving their sentences, could become free citizens. Against this colourful background is traced the tense drama of a freed convict, his wife, and a wild young Irishman who loses his heart to her. The lovely 'Bergman, as weak willed here as she was strong in 'Joan of Arc,' is loved by both men, Joseph Cotten and the sensaticnal new English star, Michael Wilding, and their affairs* are further complicated by his housekeeper's passionate devotion to Cotten 'and insane hatred of the other two. The supporting attraction will be 'PJTFALL,' a mystery drama starring Dick Powell. NEXT WEDNES...
