Wetherill Park. (Contributed.) [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 February 1929
Wetherill Park. (Contributed.) The many friends of ever popular Will Huggctt turned up on masse at his residence, "Barrypat," last Tues day night to give him a surprise party and wish hiin many happy returns of the day. He was astounded-didn't know it was his birthday-and when he laid claim to being only 27 I took it for granted he must have forgotten about quite a lot of birth days. Anyhow, it was some party. The musical items came first; includ ing Mrs. Frank Paull, Mrs. Rudder. Mrs. Elliot and Mr. Dave Rainbow, Mr. and Mrs. Page accompanied the singers. Frank Cotter was M.C. It did not take long to get on with the' dancing which all enjoyed, when the M.C. sat us down to an im promptu euchre turnament. Mrs Dave Rainbow and Mr. N. Rudder were the successful prizewinners and received very useful presents. I must say that, if the ladies out here can't sing they make up for it in their cooking. After a very enjoy able supper, more music and dancing was indulged in till midnight. PROGR...

GOOD RAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 February 1929
GOOD RAIN. The rain locally, though anything but sufficient in volume, has gladden ed the hearts of gardeners. The florists did a roaring business on Tuesday and Wednesday. Along this line from Granville to Cabra matta the total fall to date would average nearly an inch, and notwith standing that the first fall was heavy, thea thirsty ground consumed it quickly. At many homes, where the man was away at work, the women folk were not averse to using the spade. Since the above was written good rain has fallen.

"NO UNDUE ADVANTAGE." [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 9 February 1929
"NO UNDUE ADVANTAGE." The electrical engineer of Holroyd put a business-like suggestion to the Council on Tuesday night. He wrote: "It may appear to some people that I am gaining some undue ad-' vantage in respect to the arrange ments made for the garaging of the council's car, at my house, whereas I am of the opinion that the council is getting a fair deal. However, the arrangements made were not possibly the best, and I think it would be more satisfactory for everyone concerned if they were put on a more business-like footing. I therefore suggest that I be allowed to purchase the whole of the coun cil's property at my premises at the original -cost' (£41/10/9), and that council pay me the sum of 3/ per week for the use of the garage from the date of erection, and as long a« it is required to house the council's car. This is less than half the rat6 that one would have to pay privately but it would put the thing on a busi ness footing. No action .taken.
