LAND and PRODUCER BIG CHANCE FOR PIG BREEDERS POSSIBILITIES PORK AND BACON INDUSTRY OUTSIDE MARKET ESSENTIAL [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
LAND and PRODUCER BIG CHANCE FOR PIG BREEDERS POSSIBILITIES^ PORK AND BACON INDUSTRY OUTSIDE MARKET ESSENTIAL By YATTALUNGA The low values ruling for cereals has directed attention, to other avenues of primary production which might offer higher returns foe the grain than that obtainable on thp ordinary market. This has led to the production of pork and bacon being rapidly developed. If the industry is to be maintained there are three essential factors to be borne in mind. These are:— (1) Breeding of the type of pig. ' (2) Development of an .overseas mar ket for pork, bacon, and lard. (3) Continuity of overseas supply. Which Type The pig carcase most favored for bacon and to a large extent for pork must be long and deep, with well developed hams and'without coarseness in the shoulders. The back fat should not be of a greater thickness than about an inch, and even from the shoulder back. The lean should be distributed throughout the carcase, and the skin should be of fine texture and...

LONG JOURNEY FOR CHILDREN Train Service May Be Changed For Gawler Students [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
LONG JOURNEY FOR CHILDREN Train Service May Be Changed For Gawler Students Complaining that children attending Gawler High School from Angaston, Tanunda, and district, had to leave home in the morning at about 630, and did not reach home again at night until about 8 o'clock, a deputation asked the Minister of Railways (Mr. Denny) and the Commissioner (Mr. C. B. Anderson), for improved transport facilities. Mr Denny replied that the heavy loss under which the railways were be ing run made it impossible to add to the present service, particularly one of fering so little return. He promised that. If possible, he would get the time-table re-arranged as a compromise acceptable to children and business people. * . Mr. T. T. Edwards, IHP. (Labor), in troduced the deputation, which com prised Messrs. J. H. A. Schultz (chair man of the Tanunda School Commit tee), M. E. Heuzenroeder, A. C. Wec kert. B. Garret*, and S. L. Winton.
OLD LAMPS FOR NEW MODERN VERSION OF ALADDIN [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
OLD LAMPS FOR NEW MODERN VERSION OF ALADDIN Old lamps are fashionable now and people are scrapping much of the bowl type of lighting which was so popular a year or two ago. There is one young man in Adelaide who has made a study of lamps and lighting. He designs the fittings for scores of the big homes here, and he has also turned his attention to the artistic lighting of the modem cottage and bungalow. Last year he haunted the second-hand shops and bought thousands of the old-fashioned prisms which used to make the chandeliers a blaze of light Prisms and lustres are in vogue again now, but they are strung with a delicacy of design which makes them very different from the rather ponderous old-fashioned centre pieces. Many ultra modernistic effects are ob tained with material looking very much like mother of pearl, through which the light comes with a soft translucent glow. Shades like a half closed um brella are swung from the ceiling, and from the walls huge fan-shaped shades jut o...
FOR MEN ONLY BUT WOMEN BUT THEM [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
FOR MEN ONLY BUT WOMEN BUT THEM It is amazing to see the number of women who buy their men's clothing from top to toe. It is not only the wives and mothers who undertake the task, but sisters and sweethearts are pressed into service, too. It may not be romantic to purchase the sox and singlets for one's best beloved, but it is distinctly practical, and this is 193 L Some shops make a definite bid for men customers, but nine times out of ten they send their womenfolk to buy for them in Adelaide.. This week I saw some wonderful bargains in silk underwear for men. The nastel shades that were so popular a while ago seem, to have dropped back in favor, and that is probably why they are so very cheap. Lots of women -were laying to stocks for the winter, because some men cannot wear wool next to the skin, and the lighter weight silk is popular under the woollies. Search for Beauty In one shoo you would not have thought there was any depression had you seen the number of women anxiously wai...
BABY HEALTH CENTRE Work Extended [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
BABY HEALTH CENTRE Work Extended A new Baby Health -Centre was re- cently opened at Largs Bay in the Methodist Church, Military-road north. This centre is in charge of Sister W. Steward and is open on Wednesdays, this relieves to some extent the over crowded centres at Semaphore and Peterhead. where from 40 to 60 mothers attend in one afternoon. * The centre at the Outer Harbor, es tablished several years ago, mainly with the object of assisting immi grants, has been temporarily closed. This is much regretted by the commit tee of the association, but the branch was costing £200 a year to maintain and now that there are no immigrant boats the number of persons travelling with young children are very few. Mothers residing between the Outer Harbor and Largs Bay, who previously took their babies to the Outer Harbor to be weighed are now able to attend the Largs Bay Centre. It is estimated that the attendance at the Baby Health Centres this year will be in the vicinity of 90,000 and the ...
JUST LIKE A WOMAN [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
JUST LIKE A WOMAN A woman who holds rather advanced views on education, or rather she did before she had a child of her own to bring up, tells me that she took her small daughter out one Sunday after noon for a ramble round the hills. After half an hour's hard plodding she asked Miss Six Years Old what she thought of the scenery. The reply was uncompromising even if it was lisped— "I like scenery where there's shops," was the retort.
DIE IN AUSTRALIA MELBA'S PREMONITION [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
DIE IN AUSTRALIA MELBA'S PREMONITION what he eats or drinks in the lazy laughing East. There are still a num ber of germs there which have not yet been isolated by the scientists. Melba always declared that she would die in Australia. When she passed through Adelaide on her way to London for the last time, she called at "The Advertiser" Office. I was talk ing to William Heughan, tJho Scottish singer, when a gentleman told me that a lady wanted to see me downstairs, adding that she was so wedged in her motor car with luggage that she could not come up to see me. When I went down rather mystified, I was con fronted by Melba, who remarked that as the mountain wouldn't come to Mahomet, Mahomet had come to the mountain. "You're to look after Wil liam," she remarked with an affec tionate glance at that stalwart Scot" "and you'll do your best for poor ," an Adelaide woman friend of hers. "If you don't my spirit will haunt you," she said laughingly. .Then she grew grave as I kissed her good...
WARE INFLDENZA SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
WARE INFLDENZA SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES Every year, at the end of summer, in the tram and train one hears those nagging coughs. They are the prelude to the annual outbreak of early in- fluenza. It is not warm enough for sun bathing, and not cold enough ap parently for people to boast how cold it was under the shower this momin. (I always suspect that those people take their showers under an umbrella, even though they may stand in the bath.) Already there has been some thing of a scourge of influenza through out Great Britain, though the authori ties say that the visitation has been comparatively light. It will probably be echoed here. They emphasise the three rules for treatment— BEST! H KKM? WARM! GO ON A LIGT DIET. It is a fact that the influenza death roll could be cut to a TniniTmim if this were done. Hot lemonade and aspirin are excellent taken in the early stages. The lemonade should be of the ordi nary bottled variety, and it should be heated in the bottle. This can be done by pu...

FIFTH TEST IN SOUTH AFRICA Home Team Makes 252 COLLAPSE AFTER GOOD BEGINNING CAPE TOWN, February 23. South Africa started wen in the fifth Test match against the M.C.C. team, the first wicket falling at 127, but a , batting collapse set in, and the innings j closed at 252.

Mitchell had bad luck when he kicked a ball from Hammond on to his wicket. He had scored 73, made in 185 minutes. After his dismissal wickets fell $rith unsettling rapidity, Siedle, Christy, and Taylor being sent back by White and Peebles.
