JERVIS BAY I (From Our Own Correspondent). The approach of the summer sea son sees tne administration busy over- 1 hauling the various essential services provided at this resort. * * * * Apparently the Port Kembla light is not to be available in the very near future, as Mr. Barratt, the chief elec trician of the Commonwealth Works Department, is at present occupied .*n | comwutinc the load that the existing lighting plant is likely to have to j carry. The demand will be consider- 1 ably increased this season with the j addition of another large guest house, j and with proprietors of the older I | establishments constantly adding i various labor-saving equipment, all j i calling for electrical energy. j * * * * I The water supply engines and j pumps are also receiving an overhaul, j i There is heavy work ahead of this j service, too, as the consumption of ! water during the summer season now i is probably greater than was the nor- i I mal consumption during the days of \ the Naval Co...

THE GARDEN A BUSY MONTH FOR GAROENS IN FLOWER SECTION AND VEGETABLE PLOTS [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 13 October 1937

THE GARDEN A BUSY MONTH FOR GARDENS IN FLOWER SECTION AND VEGETABLE PLOTS (By Our Special Gardening Expert). Those of the gardening fraternity who have dug deeply, mulched gen erously, and limed well, are able to look with something like satisfaction on those beds where the summer dis plays are to go. Even for the slower moving -or busier) members of the brotherhood, there is still time to woik up me son, ana w put in a little overtime making a few seed boxes. October the 'growing month' might also be called the 'sowing month,' as it is during- this month that gardeners prepare for the grand displays that give pleasure not only to the owners but to all who pass by during the warm months of the year. A few suggestions for filling the seed-boxes now, and the beds later on, would be in order after a word on actual sowing of the .seed. The usua? rule for sowing seed is twice in its own depth, and if this is followed, the boxes properly drained and correctly watered all the time, there i...

BOWLING NOTES [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 13 October 1937

BOWLING NOTES ? o ? (By 'Wrong Bias'). The weather on Saturday afternoon was not ideal for sport, but the light rain that fell was not sufficient to damp the ardour of Nowra bowlers, who turned up in force to roll the biassed sphere. Keen interest was taken in the try-out of the two teams chosen for the B Pennant play, the »t_ 1 +«nm nt o T-intc nlnvine oil WO. 1 leam Ul 4 xmnj J'«J»'e '' against the No. 2 team. Owing to the failure of some of the selected men to present themselves on the green (in spite of the publicity which had been given to the coming match), the composition of 2 of the rinks had to be slightly altered. The result of play was both interesting and instructive. In one game the No. 1 team (the 'white hopes' of the B Pennant play) were successful, Percy Herne scoring a victory over Jack Gowans by 12 points. But in the other game the Kalso-rans' (or No. 2 team) showed their superiority by downing Auld's rink of 'white hopes' by 10 points. The minister had the E.S. an...

BERRY TRAINING FARM [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 13 October 1937

BERRY TRAINING FARM A junior three-year-old heifer, Berry Lovable, gave a rather remark able yield recently under official test — 85ilb of milk, with an average test of 4.6 of butter-fat. This produced 4.61b of commercial butter for the day. It is interesting to relate that the young cow is the progeny of the well known show bull. Berry Justice. There is a splendid growth of clover in the Berry district, and the Training Farm reports the best pastures since the introduction of top-dressing. For the past .season the top-dressing used was 4 cwt. lime and 1A cwt. of super phosphate per acre. , The clover has caused many cases of hoven. which has decided the superintendent (Mr. P. Waller) to plough the paddocks next autumn, and sow with rye grass, to produce a better balanced pasture.

THE MYSTERY OF SEX APPEAL And the Story of Red—the Dingo [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 13 October 1937

THE WSVSTESSY OF SEX APPEAL 1 E And the Story of Red— the Dingo (BY 'FREELANCE'). In these days of moving pictures we \ hear much about sex appeal, and I| have often wondered what it was all about. The film magazines tell us that Joan Crawford. Greta Garbo, the ill-fated Jean Harlow. and others have sex appeal. Of course it is only the women with good looks and good figures who have this doubtful gift. I seldom miss a much advertised picture. How often do- we see the hero meet the heroine for the first time, and. being a fast worker, lose no time in saying, 'I'm crazy about you!' You'll note that is the orthodox way of letting these ladies who have this sex appeal know that the hero lias fallen for them. How they get away with It is more than I can fathom. The young couples in the theatre smile and seem to understand what it is all about. Let me hark back a decade. I was at a dinner given to a journalist from Victoria. Seated beside me was a woman writer who had in her day been a go...
