Motor Notes CARS WITH KNEES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 February 1934

Motor Notes CARS WITH KNEES. \ One of the greatest innovations in the history of the motor car is being embodied in the new cars presented by General Motors for 1934. The Chevrolet, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, and Buick have, been completely re designed to embody this wonderful new ieature, wnicn win unaoubtediy place these well known cars in the forefront of all competitors. This innovation is the 'knee action,' by which the wheels ax*e flexibly mounted on their own coil spring, and rise and fall like a human knee to absorb the shocks while the car rides on. Each front wheel is independently carried' on an in dividual frictionless coil spring, abolishing the old-fashioned I-beam axle and the uncomfortable 'stiff- legged' front springs. The difference in comfort pro duced by knee action wheels, es pecially on the back seat, is beyond description. There is smoothness at high speeds and a steadiness and clinging to the road almost un believable until you test the car for yourself. 'Safety is...

NEW HUON [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 February 1934

NEW HUON 'A Night Like This,' British Do minion's latest all-talking laugh riot, which is reputed to be even greater than 'Rookery Nook,' comes to the New Huon Theatre on Satur day. It is hard to imagine the , genial Tom Wells as a custodian of the law, while his partner in crime, Ralph Lynn, is a Persian oil mag nate, whose attempts to make 'whoopee,', land him in the centre of a blackmailing plot. Winifred Shotter, as charming ever, and Claude Hulbert and Mary Brough are also in this great caste. A mystery avith one of the most unusual and baffling problems is unravelled in the supporting British film, 'The Chinese Puzzle.' It is as mystifying as its title and an entertaining story. What can be re garded! as one of the most brilliant Chinese characterisations ever given on the moving picture screen is por trayed by Leon M. Lion, who justly earns the title of the English Lon Chaney. Jane Welsh and Elizabeth Allen occupy the feminine roles with dual honors.

MOTOR DRIVER'S EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 February 1934

MOTOR DRIVER'S EXPERIENCE. The driver of one of the Williams' motor service cars from Cygnet to. Hobart (Mr W. White) had an ex citing experience during the fire scourge, and it caused great anxiety to the passengers. Bullock Hill, on the Cygnet side of Longley, was the etui/re, an a1 110m mere w wie vxrove the car had to back.. It is impossible to say what would have happened if it had been night time. The car got past the Grove, but was held up for a time while the driver and his associates helped to save a burning house. In the afternoon the trees were still burning, and as there was a thick undergrowth the fire was travelling fast. Another fire was seen towards Longley, burning along side the road.v As an indication of the way in which burning, material was flying about, Mr White told of a passing lorry driver who found tha seat burning under 'him;- .' After London, Manchester had the most motoring offences last year, with 14,513 cases. - At the other end of the scale- ''came -T...

At the Theatres THE STRAND. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 February 1934

At the Theatres THE STRAND. It is a new arid somewhat dis hevelled George Arliss, usually so immaculate, who appears in the Warner Bros, picture, 'The, Work ing Man,' which comes to the screen of the Strand Theatre on Saturday, for George Arliss let his hair grow for six weeks before beginning work on the production. In the story, a long fishing trip is interrupted by a wiiiuiKu to .era an oia inena a goou turn in disguise, and the seedy ap pearance of the character Mr Arliss portrays .is the disguise. Ordinarily, Mr Arliss, while. ;in. Hollywood, has his hair trimmed every two weeks by the studio barber. With four weeks of extra growth and careless comb ing, the usually sleek Arliss head was changed to a grey thatch. No wig or hair piece was necessary to complete his make-up. For home use Mr Arliss combs the- same hair tightly' to his head, and appears fairly normal. 'The Working Man' is a delightful and' highly en tertaining comedy drama, in which Mr Arliss, a wealthy manufacturer...

THE PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 February 1934

THE PRINCE. One of the biggest dynamite blasts in history was recorded in sound and on film for the spectacu lar engineering sequence of 'I Loved You Wednesday,' starring Warner Baxter and Elissa Landi, coming on Saturday to the Prince of Wales Theatre. The whole side of u mountain was aynamitea, jlu*,uuu lbs. of dynamite being stuffed into numerous holes, calculated to be so placed that the entire huge face of granite mountain would collapse when the blast was set off. While ' Loved You Wednesday' 19 a modern, sophisticated story revolv ing mainly about Vicki Meredith, an exotic ballerina played by Miss Landi, several great engineering scenes were taken as a background for Baxter, who is1 a famous en gineer. Warren William has created a unique character in 'Chandra the Great' for the First National pic ture, 'Mind Reader,' which is the associate feature. As a charlatan fortune-teller, he is a domineering though lovable rascal. The picture is an amusing revelation- of the tricks of ...

American Apples A COMPARISON. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 February 1934

American Apples A COMPARISON. Of special interest to .orchardists in the Huon. is the importation of a case of American apples with a view to comparing the American products with those' of Tasmania. It has'h bearing on the vexed questions of fruit' packing, style of case, quality oi lruit, competition irom otner countries 'to ' supply'*the- English mar ket, and prices obtained. From time to time we have sought to help grow ers by publishing information gleaned from various sources.- Visitors to and ' from England hav.e often ''lex- pressed their views, but it was a wise move to ' have concrete evi dence. _ In this instance^ the , com parison' is unfavorable to 'the Ameri can product. ?

Huon Water Scheme INADEQUATE SUPPLY. At.^he meeting ;pf .the Huon Coun cil, held on Monday, the question of the adequate supply was dis cussed. ?
