DAIRYING SCOURS IN CALVES [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939
DAIRYING SCOURS IN CALVES If scouring in calves has occurred on tho farm, the pens, yards and houses should not be used agaiii for calves, but new yards and pens should be erected oil a fresh site. If the buildings are of solid construc tion and lend themselves to thorough disinfection such may be carried out, but it must be borne in mind that it is almost impossible to satisfactorily disinfect earthen yards. The new pens and yards should be so placed that they will not receive any drainage from the infected yards. At the first sign of scouring the ap parently healthy calves should be re moved to a clean paddock and no con tact (direct or indirect) should be per mitted between tho healthy and sick animals. All feeding utensils used for sick calves should be scrubbed with soda and water and scalded well before be ing used for healthy calves. Cows should bo permitted to calve in a clean paddock (fortunately this is usually the case) and the calf should remain with the mother as long a...
Soldiers Show Their Appreciation [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939
Soldiers Show Their Appreciation The soldiers' recreation rooms in Maitland are price less to the soldiers of all camps, who love to visit them. The hostesses are very rare jewels indeed — the sett ing as rich as the jewels that adorn it, writes 'Medical.' It is no wonder the soldiers think highly of 'The Home,' as it is so affectionately called. Peace and quietness pre vail in those rooms where so desired, while the Tadio, piano and phonograph pro vide all the amusement re quired. But who wishes for any pleasanter way of pass ing time than by chatting to the ladies, who have en deared themselves to all soldiers by the way they de vote themselves to our care and attention? It is a rare privilege to visit 'The Home' ; it reminds us of what we have so rec ently left behind, and which, we hope, one day to revisit and continue the old threads of life once again, please God. We do so appreciate and revere the ladies at the soldiers* recreation rooms. Ladies, we salute you! Rutherford, De...

TIN HARES OR TIN HATS? [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939
TIN HARES OR TIN HATS? Sir, — Your correspondent 'Vigi- lant,' writing on the matter o£ dog racing quotes thus. 'Good dogs never stumble; good sports never grum ble; good mugs never tumble.' Well, it is time some one 'turn- 1 bled,' for Australia is trying to run an army of racing greyhounds and an army of soldiers. It can't be done. The huge cost of our defence pro gramme should convince 'Vigilant' and those associated with him that it is not a question of increased prize money, but of any prize money at all. If someone does not wake up, and quick at that, we will soon be iu tho grip of a military dictatorship under a War Precautions Act, or worse still under the iron heel of Com munism. Tin hares and tin hats don't go to lether. — Yours, etc., ? ? 'CITIZEN.'
