PYREE XMAS TREE CELEBRATIONS [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 22 December 1937
PYREE XMAS TREE CELEBRATIONS On Tuesday night of last week, a wonderful scene of enthusiasm was witnessed in Pyree Literary Institute, the occasion being the Xmas tree celebrations organised by Pyree P. and C. Association. Although similar func tions at Pyree were always successful, this eighth occasion holds the record in every way. There was £12 taken at the door (children free), and every one, young and old, were full of fun and frolic, consequently the enter tainment was great in every respect. The children commenced dancing at 8 p.m., to the strains of Mr. A. Tetley's accordeon and an extra supplied by Mrs. A. Wallis. The sporting gesture of Mr. Tetley enabled the children to be almost continually dancing until 9.30, when Santa Claus arrived, amidst wonderful scenes of enthusiasm. The Xmas tree, on the stage, was prettily decorated and loaded with toys, and Santa Claus had to distribute 90 toys to the, children. Mr. H. Watts, President of the local P. and C. Association, announ...

BOWLING NOTES [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 22 December 1937
BOWLING NOTES (By 'Wrong Bias'). On Saturday competition play was again the order of the day. players again turning out in fair number. The winning captains this time were Watty Graham. Bert Woodhill, and Percy Horm\ Watty had a sweeping victory over Alec Ruprecht. The Scotsman's team consisted of the postmaster, Arthur, and Hillcrest, whilst the purveyor of the succulent bivalves had the editor, the plumber, and the health man on his side. Mark Morton suffered defeat at Percy Hcrne's hands by one point.

Bert Woodhill and Harry Adlington appear to ha...

GOLF NOTES [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 22 December 1937
GOLF NOTES ? 0 ? (By 'Niblick'). Not much interest is being taken in the game of golf during this holiday -season. Time after time the local competitions have been abandoned ; for lack of a sufficient number of j players. The same few members roll j up regularly and play a desultory round or two for small stakes. All be ing members of the same well-known j bushranging gang, bargaining for : handicap strokes is very keen, and heated arguments as to the number ; of strokes taken to play the holes are ' not really rare— but Ned invariably wins ! * * * & The continued fine weather, al though very nice from a holiday point of view, is causing some concern to the greens committee. Quite a fair amount of money has been expended j in expensive seed, which was sown ' just a little too late to get the benefit of the late spring rains. Another run ' over with the roller would do no harm at the moment. * -v ♦ * The new club house is nearing com- ; pletion, and the contractor is to be co...
REMINISCENCES JIMMY GRAHAM [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 22 December 1937
REMINISCENCES (By 'Old-Timer'). JIMMY GRAIIAM Jimmy Graham was a very promin ent member of the old Perseverance team and afterwards of the Nowra Club. His many admirers described him as an all-rounder, but to be can did I never hud much respect for him ?ip a bowler, ne cm mimy was u, regu lar bowler, and often recorded good fi'-ures. but when opposed to good batsmen he did not employ enough variety to be really dangerous. Right ! arm with the natural off break, com- ' pi.'Lrd his stock in trade. But almost j ;-]] bowlers could bring the ball back : on the old coir mat. and batsmen ; didn't worry about what would now be I described as a huge off break. His ! pace was a little above medium, and as the batsmen in those times mostly went lor the runs, Jim's figures were often flattering. As a batsman he commanded the respect of all the leading bowlers, and no team was safe until Jimmy was dismissed. Like his j bowling, Jim's batting was of the | forceful variety, but the latter was ' fa...

BABY'S ENVIRONMENT Health Department's Hints for Parents. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 29 December 1937
BABY'S ENVIRONMENT 1 Health Department's Hints for ] Parents. During baby's first year the parents can do quite a lot towards helping the child's intelligence to develop normal ly. To begin with, they can see that he has a normal, serene environment; that he will be used to everything be ing done in a methodical manner; that he won't be subjected to exces sive noise. When he shows signs of wanting to . hold things, they can help him to overcome the preliminary difficulties — at first he will be clumsv and easily discouraged. While they are about it they can see that he learns to hold things in both hands, too, not merely the right hand. Certain lessons he will have to learn for himself, of course — for instance, he will learn that when he lets go a thing it will fall. And this is where the intelligent parent (probably the mother, as she is the one who, natu rally, has most to do with baby dur ing his first year) comes in; she won't rush and pick up the thing for him every time it fa...

CARTOON CAUSED TROUBLE [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 29 December 1937
CARTOON CAUSED TROUBLE 'If this had been sent to me, I would have merely laughed at it as a good joke,' said Mr. Hardwick, S.M., at Kiama Police Court last week, holding up a neatly drawn cartoon of a monkey in an aeroplane dropping a few bombs (reports 'Truth's' Kiama representative). Underneath were the words, 'Frightfulness. — Kiama bomb ed by s.p. bookmakers; two in every hotel and one on every comer. Women and little children have to suffer. A perfect swindle.' But the picture was labelled, 'To Mrs. Moore from W. Scott,' and Harold Moore, burly blacksmith, took it as an insult and went along to de mand an apology from the bearer of ? the historic name, Walter Scott, short, thickset, and, as he himself rather proudly averred, frostbitten about the feet and minus most of his toes. Moore took with him 21 -year-old Cyril Brandon, and the result was that the two of them faced the beak on charges of assault and insulting words. Mr. T. P. MacMahon. of Sydney, in structed by Ryan and W...
