NEW HUON [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934

NEW HUON The greatest and most amazing' spectacle yet brought to the talking screen is to be shown at the New Huon Theatre this Saturday. It is 'Congorilla,' which was actually Jinnea in tne jungie. vjoriuas m: mortal combat, a pigmy courtship, wedding and honeymoon, with huge elephants, ferocious lions, and rhino ceri, and other wild beasts. A white woman narrowly escapes death from : a charging rhino, a river alive with reptiles, the capture of two kings of the apes, and hyenas teasing a lion. 1 These are just a few of the thrills and' sights revealed. The jungle , picture was made by Mr and Mrs Martin Johnston, who also appear in it. It is the only talking picture ever entirely taken in- the African jungle. Pictorial beauty is presented in .the view near Lake Albert, where I literally billions of flamingos are seen and heard. The biggest thrill, j however is furnished within 20 feet of their sound recording camera. The j Johnstons' seven months' stay among the pygmies of the Itur...

Sporting Notes BOWLING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934

Sporting Notes BOWLING. The effort to establish a bowling green at Franklin has advanced another stage. There have been many discussions, proposals, etc. The knowledge that should the money be borrowed from the banks through the Huon Coun cil, the control of the game would be with the municipal activities was unwelcome, and the original scheme was' withdrawn. It now seems pos sible to 'provide this congenial and healthy recreation by the debenture system, whereby a certain number of debenture-holders would be offered a fair rate of interest for their money. At a meeting held at Franklin on Thursday last, over which Cr. D. E. Ryan presided, Cr. H. G. Hay moved — 'That not less than 62 debentures be issued at £5 each, with the in terest rate fixed at 5 per cent.' After much discussion and ex planation of the scheme, the motion was cai'ried unanimously. It should not be a difficult matter to secure 62 or more investors of £5 each, at what is eenerallv regarded as a fair interest for th...

JARDINE AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934

JARDINE AGAIN. Tasmanian cricketers have cause to remember Jardine, the captain of the English team that visited Ho bart three years ago. On that oc casion he refused to use his best bowlers because of the wet wicket — that was the reason given. Really it was a protest against the um pires, because they ruled that the wicket was fit to play on. He has again become notorious by objecting to Mr Frank Tarrant umpiring in the Thrid Test match between India and the M.C.C. team. There had been an unusually large number of l.b.w. decisions given during the M.C.C's. tour. The inference is that he is not satisfied with Tar rant's abiilty. Mr Tarrant said: — 'Where are the sportsmen in 1934 if the captain of the M.C.C. cannot take l.b.w. decisions with good grace? .A world— lenowned cricket er does not, while umpiring, give de cisions against his better knowledge; he has a reputation at stake. Doubt has been cast on my impartiality on the eve of the Test. This is diffi cult to understand, and...

FARM OR FAME? [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934

FARM OR FAME? A Melbourne correspondent writes: I It is peculiarly fitting that in recent j discussions Bradman has been linked with the 'Tasmanian Bradman,' C. I L. Badcock. Badcock also has been | the subject of frenzied bidding from ! all parts of Australia. Not yet has ! he been in contact with Accrington j or Ramsbottom, or any others of the English clubs, for Lancashire will not ! display a lively interest in him until 1 he has proved himself at least in Sheffield Shield cricket. Badcock declares that he is not keen to leave his father's farm in Tasmania, but with fame, and possibly fortune, as the prize, he may be induced to come to the mainland. There is a great deal of similarity in the cricket make-up of Badcock and Bradman. It is said in Tasmania that if a bowler should beat Badcock with a delivery Badcock would play to get the strike against the bowler so that he could play him as much as pos sible and eventually master the ball which beat him. Bradman is like that, Afte...

Centenary Celebra tions THE REAL THING. The overseas visitors from all parts of the world who will gather in Victoria this yeaiv are to see some real back-country life for one whole month. A recent addition to the splendid official programme is called ? the ' Wild Australian Stampede.' { The name might mean anything, and ! will certainly have foreigners think- j ing very hard in an effort to trans-; late it.

British Films THEIR RAPID ADVANCEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934

British Films THEIR RAPID ADVANCEMENT.. Until the advent of the talking pictures- America held sway in ? ' the film wofld. She- had built -up a wonderful industry. Other ' .coun tries, Britain chiefly, ? were a con-, siderable time settling down, and their early, efforts were very :t poor compared- with tUricle! Sam'sj-product, both in technique and plot. Then came the talkies — and Great Britain's opportunity. Since then she has never looked back, until now Hollywood looks upon her- as- a strong competitor, 7 for many American critics are unanimous in their opin ion that the U.K. product is equal to; their own. Many years ago, when the motion picture was in' its infancy, the name Gaumont was well -known as a pio neer in this great industry. It was in 1898 that the company came into existence, and from that year it has made consistent progress, until to day the Gaumont-British Gains borough 'Corporation is one of the largest, if not the largest, organisa tions in the world to-day.

Fishing Industry NEW ZEALAND COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 March 1934

Fishing Industry NEW ZEALAND COMPETITION.. Those interested in th6 fishing in dustry (especially as it affects Tas mania, particularly Southern Tas mania) will not be altogether satis fled with the1 reply of the Minister for Trade and Customs (Lieutenant Colonel White) sent to Colonel A. C. : Blacklow. M.H.R. Naturally Tas mania expects, tliat the Federal Gov ernment should give preference to. industries tyitWn the Common-wealth, but ip. this instance the Government sho-\vs an inclination to sacrifice what should be a flourishing industry in Tasmania in favor of a general trade reciprocity with New Zealand. Trade reciprocity is- a good- thing, but -is it wise to cripple an industry in- two Dominions for the sake of the ideal? Reciprocity should only apply to those goods that cannot be produced in either of the contracting countries.* The letter of the ' Minister - of Trade and Customs referred to con fesses to a lack of. knowledge^ con cerning certain yitftl points at issue, namely,...
