St John's Park Show. TO BE OPENED BY MINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 26 January 1929
St John's Park Show. TO BE OPENED BY MINISTER. It is certainly news to the good folk of the district that the Rev. Hon. H. V. Thorby, the Minister for Agri culture has promised to visit our township on February 6 and offic ially open the show. This is the first time that such an honor has been bestowed on the Bur eau, and if it does happen to be 'un fortunate that the season has not been too kind, it is to be hoped that residents will do their utmost to make the show as big as possible. The running of a successful show in the face of hardships, Is likely to have considerable effect on the pow ers that be when representations are made for consideration of matters affecting our township. As mention ed previously, the poultry and pig eon sections appear likely to be record ones, both for quantity and quality, but we realise the ladies can do a lot in their classes to make up the difficulty in fruit and vegetable sections. If the ladies (as we feel sure they will) support the home made ...

"WE OBJECT.' The Woodville Ratepayers' Asso ciation, and the Pendle-Hill-Girra ween Ratepayers and Electors' Asso ciation of Holroyd, both wrote to the Holroyd Council objecting to the decision to transfer portion of the loan monies allocated to Old Prospect Road, to Pitt-street, Merrylands, and asking for re-consideration of the matter. The latter association stated that the objection had been forward ed to the Local Government Depart ment. Aid. Rainbow said he had been against t)ie transfer at last meeting'. He considered the £50,000 loan had been fairly allocated in the first place. Pitt-strqet was certainly bad, but not as bad as Old Prospect Road. He gave notice of motion that the money be re-allotted to Old Pros pect Road. Aid. Maunder wanted to see Pitt street attended to, while Aid. Jones l ibo put in a strong plea for Pitt-st. Aid.

SQUARING ACCOUNTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 26 January 1929
SQUARING ACCOUNTS. Twenty-five thousand hens perish ed during: the recent hot spell-and eggs will probably be worth more. News item. The hen that laid the golden egg was sitting in the sun. And to her rooster friend she cried: "My race is nearly run. The rain keeps off, the heat keeps on, and I am all undone " The poultry man disconsolately walked around his pens, And with a mournful eye surveyed the hordes of prostrate hens. The eggs he used to check in scores, he now must count in tens. The poultry-farmer scratched his head: "The price must v&lt;ump," said he, "And eggs that once were one and six, must now be two and three." (For he must keep his ledger square and cut the loss, you see). The housewife walked into the shop and to the grocer said: "A dozen eggs at one and six"-the shopman shook his head: "These eggs are better quality since many hens are dead. "The egg that costs three ha-pence, it may keep a "kid" alive, But one at tuppence farthing it will cause a man to t...
Notes and Comments [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 26 January 1929
Note» and CommenU It It within the scope of a compar atively young man's remembrance when i be courthuubo at Liverpool presented a respectable appearance. To-day wild weeds thrive around the front door, ant1, over the Inter vening space to the frant entrance gate. From the crevices in the path way blades of grass struggle feebly towards Jl.o light The walls are tic naixts of the lizard tribe. In fact, the building resembles an uninhabit «d "pub," delicenwd because of its anRtrcss for the p'UMse. But lh«, decrees of justice issued from within at least modern, md in keeping with those of the higher courts. In thousand, upon' thousands of cases the law has been vindicated in this old buildings-cases are taken from nuny centres to Liverpool. There is something historic about the placc said to be the work of convicts. 'Ihe canvicts have passed and their good work stands neglected. But "con victions" are still part and parcel of Liverpool court house. . . . Another historic landmark, said...

BROADCASTING. CHURCH BROADCASTS. Clergyman's Strong Views [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 26 January 1929
BROADCASTING. (Conducted by M. Wilson. Radio Stores, Ware*street, Fairfield). CHURCH BROADCASTS. Clorg jrm»n'» Strong Viewi The controversy in New South WaleB as to the desirability of re placing some of the, church service broadcasts by services conducted in the studio was dying down, but has been wakened up by a listener at Lisarow who says that the buildings from which the church transmissions are taken are almost all excellent from the point of view -of radio. In his opinion, if the church services were eliminated listeners would lose a wealth of magnificent music, par ticularly organ muBic which could not be replaced. Although the clergy in New South Wales seem almost united against the proposal, many listeners welcome the idea and a great number have written to ,the New South Wales Broadcasting Company to say as much. A man at Helensburgh voices the sentiment of others when he says: "I have read the statements made by sundry of the clergy whose narrow outlook on the world is r...

Electricity in the Home. THE TABLE STOVE [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 26 January 1929
Electricity in the Home, THE TABLE STOVE The electric table stove is a handy contrivance which is rapidly becom ing Btandard equipment in the all electric or semi-electric home. It is specially useful for cooking a break fast or light luncheon right on the table. Porridge, toast, and eggs, or a grill can be prepared without the necessity of moving fron&lt; r one's chair in any house where electricity is available. Actually the electric table stove combines in the one appliance the advantages of a griller, toaster, chaf ing dish, frying pan, and double boiler. It iB fitted with a three-heat control switch, and can be bought for £3 and upwards. The electric table stove is a handsome device, and gives the meal table a very smart appearance.

BIG BILL WITH GIANT'S VOICE [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 26 January 1929
BIG BILL WITH GIANT'S VOICE A speech amplifier believed to be of record proportions has arrived in Sydney. It is known as "Big Bill with the Giant's Voice," and it carries a distance of three miles without distortion. The amplifier has been mounted permanently on a motor truck which will convey it to any place where there is a large gather ing of people. "Bill" will be used as a means of entertainment and en lightenment and with equal facility will amplify gramophone records, cricket scores, election results, band music or politicians' speeches. A 500 watt valve in the last stage of amplification operating at 3500 volts, gives Bill his stentorian tones, the required power being generated on the truck itself. "Big Bill" and his lorry will soon be familiar to Sydney crowds.
PALM TO,3 L O AND 2 U W [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 26 January 1929
PALM TO ,3 L O AND 2 U W Opinions of listeners as to the merits of the respective broadcast ing stations are nearly as numerous as the listeners themselves. Usually the expressions bf opinion are either that the local stations are delightful or that to get good programmes one has to go far afield, the farther the better. However, a listener living at Neutral Bay, Sydney, has come to the conclusion: "For clarity and perfec tion, I give the palm to stations 3 L 0 and 2 U W." Well 3 L 0 is the lead ing A class station of Melbourne and 2 U W is the B class station in Syd ney with the shortest wave length. Writing to Uncle Jack 2 U W, this listener states that he has had a five valve set for live years and he has been connected with niUBic all his life. He says his family derive the greatest pleasure listening to the fine records radiated by 2 U W and he remarks that Uncle Jack must be as well known as the Prime Minister.
