THE "GUARDIAN" A BRIEF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 3 January 1929

THE 'GUARDIAN' A BRIEF HISTORY. (By A. E. Williams.) To-day sees the first issue of. the new daily paper to be published in Geraldton. It is an. event of very great importance, not only for the paper itself, but for the district gen erally, and Geraldton in particular, which will henceforth iiave all the in fluence wielded by a daily newspaper to champion their interests. Yet I for one somehow regret the passing of y the old order. The 'Guardian' was a fine old tri-weekly. I knew it in its swaddling clothes, watched it 'in its lusty youth, and admired it in vigorous manhood, and now that its identity has been merged into a pro mising offspring, to me has been dele gated the duty of telling the story of its life. In one way the task is not an easy one. The passing of an old friend is a subject upon whieh few of us like to talk overmuch, and tlie ''Guardian' was an institution for which I had a very sincere regard. ' But other con-, siderations somewhat relieve the dif ficulty of the ...

Pan-Pacific Secretariat NO PLACE TO MEET Melbourne, January 2. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 3 January 1929

Pan-Pacin- . Secretariat ? ? ♦ NO PLACE TO MEET { Melbourne, January 2. j Owing to the revolutionary objects or ( the Pan-Pacific Trade Union Secrctar- ? iat, and to^the fact that its leaders arc j avowed enemies of Great Britain and America, the Secretariat has had great difficulty in fixing the meeting place for its next conference, which will bv! gin on August 1. The American Fe deration of Labour is strongly opposed to the Se'cretariat. A meeting of the Secretariat was held in Shanghai in February last, and Australian, Britu-n, Filipino, Japanese, Russian, American and Chinese delegates were present. That meeting convoked the Pan-Pacifie Trade Union Congress to meet in- Syd ney or Melbourne in 1929, but the meet ing has been forbidden by the Federal Ministry.

The Geraldton Guardian & Express THURSDAY, JANUARY 3, 1929 OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 3 January 1929

The Geraldton Guardian & Express THURSDAY, JANUARY 3, 1929 OURSELVES. To-day marks an epoch in the devel- opment of the Geraldton and Murchi- son districts, inasmuch as this is the first issue of the new daily news- paper. It is published with pride, and with a deep sense of our responsi- bility and our high destiny. There is not in Western Australia— perhaps there is not in Australia— a range of territory with greater potentialities or a fairer probable future; the task of the newspaper, which is to supply its needs and interpret its desires is there- fore one to be undertaken in a spirit of consecration to the common good and of determination to be truly rep- resentative. Every newspaper now- adays must be a commercial undertak- ing, depending for its life and success upon the approbation of those among whom it circulates; but it is a very short-sighted and low-motived manage- ment which permits consideration of   profits to become the beginning and end of its...

A HUGE FOSSIL DISCOVERIES IN MONGOLIA [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 4 January 1929

A HUGE FOSSIL ? w . _ DISCOVERIES IN MONGOLIA Dr. Hoy Chapman Andrews, explorer of 'Mongolia, says that land was far more populous SOjOOO years ago than it is to-day. His latest cablegram (writes the New York correspondent of the London 'Daily Chronicle') comes from Pe king to the American Museum of Nat ural History. ? ? j Whether he has met with any further measure of success in his efforts to find proofs that the great Chinese desert of Gobi or Shamo was 'the cradle of the human race,' the explorer does not indicate. His theory about - the Stone Ago population of Mongolia (the period when the natives were using stone im plements, whatever may have been hap pening in other parts of the world) is based on the discovery of sites of the residences of 'dune dwellers.' These sites have yielded thousands of stone implements and decorated bones and shells, tools, and necklaces. Also the Chapman Andrews' expedi tion is bringing home fossil remains of a hitherto unknown mastodon. The beast ...
