St. John's Show. A SPIRIT OF OPTIMISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 2 February 1929
St. John's Show* A SPIRIT OF OPTIMISM. That is the feeling that prevails among the committee. Of course, some of the conditions might be more favourable; but conditions, such as dry weather, etc., they cannot con trol. The enthusiasm shown by members ,in their determination to carry on must receive its reward. Already poultry and pigeon entries look like a new record, whilst in creased interest shown by the ladies, of the district in the sections pre pared for them will do much to make up for any deficiency in the garden classes. These classes, especially the needle work, are educational and deserve all the support possible. Whilst 'the classes for the children are an en couragement to those of them who show any signs of being better than the majority, we arc pleased to note that the schools arc taking increased interest in the work of the show and help to realise that it is from the boys and girls of to-day that future members of the Bureau and kindred associations must come. It is...

The letter was received.
Electricity in the Home. WASHING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 2 February 1929
Electricity in the Home. WASHING DAY. Of all electrical appliances used in the home, it is doubtful if there is one that saves more time and drud gery than the clothes washer. Un less the simple act of placing hot water, soap, and soiled clothes in the electric washer is considered work, the electric way means "wash ing without work." Little attention is required also by the modern electric dishwasher. With water, dishes, and soap powd er in the machine, a simple pressure of the button is all that is required. Imagine dish washing for a whole day disposed of in ten minutes ! This represents a saving of at least 35 working days of eight hours out of every years. It means one month of every year saved for pursuits pleasanter than household -toil. KEEPING FOOD FRESH. Electric refrigeration has now proved its merit, "when compared with other forms. With the better type of refrigerator there are no pipes, drains, or attachments below the box or in the basement. It is as easy to operate a...
BROADCASTING. MISSED WHEN DROPPED [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 2 February 1929
BROADCASTING. (Conducted by M. Wilson, Radio Stores, Ware-street, Fairfield). MISSED WHEN DROPPED The topical chorus which has been an outstanding characteristic of sta tion 2B L for the past two years was recently cut out, the manage ment being under the impression that poBsibly listeners had tired of the humorous verses which were chant ed each night at 8 o'clock. So many listenera, however, have communicat ed with the station expressing dis appointment that it has been de cided to re-introduce the topical chorus, which in future will open the programme each night on altern ate weeks.
RADIO FROM BODINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 2 February 1929
RADIO FROM BODINGTON. The next hospital visitation of the 2 F C Hospital Concert ' Party will be paid to Bodington, the T.B. Soldiers' Home at Wentworth Falls. On the last visit to Bodington, the Diggers did not cease to talk about the 2 F C party for weeks after and the visit which takes place in Feb ruary is being anticipated by the inmates with much interest. Mr. Charles Lawrence, the popular en tertainer, is in charge of the party and will be supported by Miss Dor othy Dewar, Miss Maggie Foster. Messrs. Frank Ryan and R. A. Bart leman. The same party made a visit to Royal North Shore Hospital a few days ago, the secretary of which afterwards declared that their pro gramme was better than the best tonic which the hospital can afford.
POPULAR OPERAS BY RADIO [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 2 February 1929
POPULAR OPERAS BY RADIO Within the past few months many popular operas in abridged form have been broadcast through station 2 F C Sydney. These include the Country Girl, The Helle of New York, La Mascottc, Lcs Cloches de Corne ville, the Duchess of Dantzig, the Spring Chicken, Dollar Princess, the Sunshine Girl, The Cingalee, Gipsy Love, Maid of the Mountains, Robin Hood, Tom Jones, Grand Duchess, Pepita, Tambour Major, etc. Experience has shown that the "tabloid" versions of these musical plays is more suitable from the point of view of listeners than the full stage version owing to the fact that much of the stage production must be seen as well as heard to be ap preciated. The latest musical com edy to be presented by 2 F C will be Floradora which will be presented by Mr. Leo Packer and his company on the evening of February 4. Mr. Packer is the conductor of the Mosman Musical Society and members of his company have co operated in quite a number of mus ical comedy broadcasts.

LISTENER IS SORRY FOR KING. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 February 1929
LISTENER IS SORRY FOR KiNG. A number of radio listeners form the habit of writing to the announ cers of the various broadcasting sta tions telling them their troubles, ask ing their advice and giving them all manner of intimate family details. Such a radio enthusiast wrote to a favorite announcer at station 2 B L recently: "Isn't it sad about the King," she observed. "I keep on remarking that it iB a pity he isn't in a lodge. Then he would be painted with io dine and given some sort of medi cine like dishwater. It pulls the poor people through. My blood boils when I think how we poor peersons are so helpless. We know simple home remedies that would cure the King and yet we read about bulletins issued by four doctors and we don't know how many nurses. And still the King is ill." The writer of this letter states that she is susceptible to pleurisy herself, so she knows what the King has to suffer. She describes her own pains in much detail, but attributes her recovery to the fact that...
BRINGING BATHERS WITHIN THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 February 1929
BRINGING BATHERS WITHIN THE LAW. The Local Government Act is what might be called a composite statute, Every fe,w years Parlia ment is forced to mend some of the holes which practice has disclosed. For example, the bather, at one stage, discovered he could defy all the laws which govern bathing. A council's powers are only exercisable within its own territory, and where a municipality is bounded by tidal waters the tide marks the boundaries of the area. A bather, therefore, in the first line of breakers would be outside the area, and the council could not take cognisance of any breaches of the ordinance he might commit outside its area. It did not take long for some enterprising citi zen to discover this weakness of the law. Parliament brought him and his kind to order by specially enact ing that for the purposes of the control of bathing, "the land and water below high water mark on the foreshores of the area shall be deem ed to be within the area."
THE DOOR TO DOOR COLLECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 February 1929
THE DOOR TO DOOR COLLECTOR. Pew people seem to be aware of the fact that in all the Sydney sub urbs and in most country towns it is an ofFence to collect money from door to door unless the collector holds a permit from the local coun cil. It is a pity that this excellent law is not more fully enforced. Councils can, on the permit, impose any conditions which they consider advisable. Within one month from the date of> any such collection, the person Who was granted the permit must tfile at the council's office a certified balance-sheet showing the receipts and expenditure. The law iB one which is entirely in the inter ests of charity. A person who is asked to give has always in mind three nasty dofibts-is the charity a bona fide one, is the collector prop erly authorised, and how much of his gift would be swallowed tip un der the guttdnous heading "ex pewfjM."

£10,000 LOAN. FOR KERBING AND GUTTERING AT LIVERPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 February 1929
£10,000 LOAN. FOR KERBING AND GUTTERING AT LIVERPOOL. On Tuesday night Aid. Bratchcll (Mayor of Liverpool) presented the following 'minute: "As the members of council seem unanimous that a progressive policy should be adopted in the kerbing and guttering of the streets within the town improvement area, I have investigated the whole aspcct, and am now of the opinion, and recom mend to council, that a loan should be obtained for the purpose of kerbing and guttering practically the whole of the town improvement district. Within this area, there are 124 miles of this work required, and an approximate estimate, on a fairly liberal basis, of the cost of this work would be £16,500. I would suggest that the sum of £10,000 be obtain ed by way of a special loan, from the owners of property adjacent to the work. I estimate that by increasing the town improvement rate to an extent of less than Id in the £, a sufficient annual revenue would be derived to meet the instalments of principal and int...

ST. JOHN'S PARK THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 February 1929
ST. JOHN'S Pii& THE DAY. St John's Park show b on to-day (Friday) sad to-morrow (Sat) and the results of efforts to place .ow township on the map again will be seen first in the number and quality of the entries received and tuso In the number of persons patronising the event.

Despite the dry weather, the vege table section is very fair proving that where care is taken to cultivate thoroughly good results are obtain able. The ladieB* classes are also well worthy of inspection, some of the exhibits in the home-made sections being of the highest standard, and explains why so many husbands in the district refuse to leave home, while in...

Liverpool Council. MEETING ON TUESDAY NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 February 1929
Liverpool Council. MEETING ON TUESDAY NIGHT. There was a good attendance at the fortnightly meeting of the Liver pool Council, held on Tuesday night. The Railway Commissioners again stated by ietter that cheap week-end fares from Liverpool to Sydney could not be granted. In response to a communication from the Water, Sewerage and Drainage Board, it .was decided to ask a representative of the Board to visit the town in connection with the proposed water main extensions. Referring to the drainage of Bigge-street, the Water, Sewerage and Drainage Board wrote that a gutter had been cut which would lead the water along the centre of the street, and this should obviate any couse for future complaint. The Public Works Department in timated that the Liverpool dam is under the jurisdiction of the Water Conservation and Irrigation Com mission, to whom council's letter had been referred. The Lands Department advised that council's request for a grant towards improvements to Clinch's Pond Park ...
ROADS WITHOUT GUTTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 February 1929
ROADS WITHOUT GUTTERS. Among the many changes that the motor car has mudc is that in the modern road there are no gutters. In building concrete or similar road the convexity of the road runs in an unbroken line up to the kerb. This created an awkward problem for councils. They are given a'special power to charge half the cost of constructing footpaths, kerbs, and gutters against the owners of the adjoining land. The modern road has no indication where the gutter commences, so that it looked as if councils would be unable to exercise their power of enforcing the recov ery of half the cost. Parliament came to their relief in the latest Amending Act by providing that "where a roadway is laid to a kerb in concrete construction with or without asphaltic top", the/'strip of such construction adjoining the kerb and of a width of 18 inches shall be deemed to be guttering.'"
