NEW APPARATUS For Milk Testing [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Independent — 9 July 1947
:NEW APPARATUS For Milk Pesting .For: many yeai's past testing"? of milk for sediment has been 'a sore point with. most 'suppliers to. the' Milk Board.

FOOTBALL ADVICE TO FOOTBALLERS [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Independent — 9 July 1947
FOOTBALL ADVICE ,TO FOOTBALLERS 1. Never swallow the dummy; don't even take a single suck, it's poison. 2. Take the shortest cut 'to the goal line.. The longest way round is only a love song; you try it and it's your swan-song. 3. Play the whistle. The bloke blowing it may be as mad as the Mayor of Callan Park, bhit he's your boss to-day and what he blows goes. 4. Don't wait for the bounce bf thle ball. In 1942 ten professors went mad trying to work out what direc-o tion a ball went when it hit the ground. They were professors of mathematics-and don't thing aritli nietis is just the name of an old- time racehorse. 5. You are not playing. the oppos ition side on your own. There al~.e others in the team besides yoit. Al ways remember your supporting players. 6. You can always learn. If you arie too thin-skinned to take a little criticism you are too soft to take a lump. You should take on marbles or snakes and ladders.--"Cobargo Chronicle,"

LOCAL GOVERNMENT [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Independent — 12 July 1947
LOCAL GOVERNMENT A man likes to manage his own affairs. Similarly, when people find that they have certain needs, in common the natural tendency. is for them to pool, their resources to meet those needs. This is the origin of the system of Local Government-a system by. which the people entrust to a few the responsibility to act as it were, as a Board of Directors, chai'ged with the management of the corpor ate business of their community. That is really what your Shire or Municipal Council is. SThus, Local Government is true self-government. It provides the means whereby the citizen can par ticipate in government: "It is good. for the community, because it gives opportunities for self-explression to those 'with capacity for leadership. It makes men among men. It is efficieint, because Aldermen, . Coun cillors and officials are. close to the people and know their , real needs. Many. services demand local know ledge, local understanding and local loyalty. Remote control of Boards, Com...
