Adelaide Mail (Newspaper) - January 21, 1933, Adelaide, South Australia
National Library of Australia building up our Forest wealth state now has 40 million Pines Many men found jobs in reproductive venture four Mills operating by our political writer to the South australian government the 40 million Pines on its 53,000 acres of Forest reserves Are an undoubted asset. In years to come they should bring much wealth to this state. The farsighted policy under which Large areas of waste lands have been transformed into luxuriant forests has proved a Boon in the present depression. It has provided an excellent Opportunity to place men on reproductive work. The future value of these forests can Only be speculated on at present but the government is confident that when the larger areas come to maturity they will yield considerable profit. It is not surprising that this great Middle state is the Pioneer of commercial afforestation in Australia. For natural forests of commercial value. South Australia happens to be worse off than any other state. But by the gradual Extension of Pine plantations succeeding governments have endeavoured to make up for nature 6 defects and at the same time build up a Revenue producing asset. It is More than 50 years ago since operations were begun at Wir Rabara and Bun Valeer. In the Northern Hills and nearly As Long ago in certain parts of the South East. The Early efforts were largely experimental both in methods and the varieties planted. Naturally great expense was incurred in discovering the Best varieties of Timber Trees for different soils and climates. Some of these earlier plantations have been marketed but forestry officials say it is not possible to Esti mate How much profit if any any individual Plantation has returned. Reasons Given Are the experimental nature of the undertaking and the fact that earlier system of bookkeeping did not record the expenditure separately. Methods have changed from time to time and Many economies have been effected. With the present system of bookkeeping it is possible to show the average Cost and yield. Loan Money used All expenditure on the forests is now financed from loan moneys. This s regarded As More satisfactory than the pre Vious system under which the forests department had to depend on the Revenue estimates for Money to carry on its Ope rations thu6 preventing it from having a fixed planting policy on a commercial basis. For the current financial year the amount available is �160,000. This includes �22.000 for interest on past expenditure. The estimated Revenue is from �70.000 to �80,000, to be derived from the Felling of 200 acres of Timber plus the Sale of thinning receipts from grazing rights and so Forth. This year the department will Plant about 10,000 acres of which 6.000 will be in the South East and 4,000 in the Adelaide Hills. Areas Are now being cleared. The planting programme for the Ade Laide Hills shows a material increase on tast years. Prior to last rear the an Nual plantings on these Hills never exceeded 500 acres. Thinning operations Are now being car ried out at both it. Crawford and Kuito. These Are giving a satisfactory return to the department. In the past three years the total expenditure on the state Pine forests has been �375,000, and the total Revenue �165,000. The Revenue has come mainly from sales of Timber Cut from an average of probably 200 to 250 acres a year and the expenditure includes the planting of 17,000 acres the maintenance of approximately 53,000 acres the preparation of an additional 20,000 acres for planting the erection of the mount Burr and Caroline Mills the erection of a number of cottages in the South East. And the Purchase of land. When the larger areas reach maturity the department feels confident that the income will be substantially in excess of the expenditure. Departmental figures show that the Cost of growing Pine Timber to 30 years of age including compound interest on All costs will not exceed �55 an acre and that the Revenue on a conserva Tive estimate will be at least �75 an acre. Although taxpayers Are naturally impatient at seeing Large annual sums expended on the forests for a rather disappointing monetary return the govern ment regards afforestation As a definitely reproductive work which apart from eventually returning to the state All the expenditure incurred with compound in Terest will retain Here some hundreds of pounds a year which would otherwise go elsewhere for softwood Timber and ensure continuous employment for several thousand men when the scheme is in full operation. More planting justified the government does not think that it would be advisable to maintain a planting policy of 10.000 acres a year. But it believes that an acceleration of planting is justified at this juncture especially As a Means of providing Relief work. During the depression it has been the South australian government s experience that forestry operations Are most suitable for absorbing the unemployed. A big Point in their favor is that about 90 per cent of the expenditure involved is on labor thus ensuring the maximum re Lief with the Money available. South Australia s Pine forests Are much admired by visitors and apart from the ultimate wealth it is recognised that they Are a definite asset in a Lees material sense. They offer Protection from winds Are a Scenic attraction and improve conditions generally in the areas in which they Are located particularly when they Are in water logged country. At present the government is Ope rating four Mills in its Forest reserves and there is a Good demand for the Timber but there is a general feeling that the government should not continue milling operations any longer than is necessary. Responsible ministers in the present government have on More than one Occa Sion claimed that the state is in the milling business from Force of Circum stances. It is possible that As soon As a Market is definitely assured and the Timber is available on a sufficiently Large scale in compact areas to attract outside interests the government will feel disposed to invite competitive offers from private Enterprise to take Over the whole of the Millina Side.

We aim to drive the boys not Only a Good time but lessons in leadership and games along scouting lines. And we Hope that every boy Wili come Back Able to swim or.

Fighting the Hills fire menace every summer brings its quota of Bush fires menacing lives and properties throughout the state. The Campaign against the ravages of the fire fiend will be advanced a further stage at a Confer ence at Clare probably Early in March. Methods by which local governing bodies should co operate with firefighting organisations towards this end will be Dis cussed. The conference will be attended by representatives of the Barossa ranges nor Thern and Hills firefighting associations. A preliminary meeting will be held to consider suggested resolutions. The 6ecretary of the Northern firefight 1 ing association or. Rose said this week j that if local governing bodies availed themselves More fully of the Powers that j legislation conferred on them the menace of Bosh fires would be greatly minimised and More effective Means of fighting them could be organised. The gaze Ting of fire officers was Essen tial. Said or. Rose. Councils should exer Cise the utmost care in the appointment of 6uch officers and wherever possible committees should be formed to co operate and assist firefighters. Helping firefighters local committees could appoint sub committees to attend to food and water supplies for them in the fighting line bringing up reinforcements and other work which would be determined by local conditions. It is to be regretted said or. Rose that so Many local governing bodies fail to Realise the need to exercise the Power conferred on them. The opinion is growing that legislation should be enacted to compel councils to see that action is taken to Render an Essen tial Community service. Another weak Ness is that under existing legislation no provision is made whereby any compensation is available for a landowner who May sustain damage through a firebreak being burned on his property to save adjoining owners interests a suggestion that a firefighting org Auisa Tion should be formed in the Adelaide Foothills has also been made.

Medwell of Gilberton who dived fully clothed into j the Torrens this week and saved the life j of a girl who was in difficulties. It is just As essential for girl swimmers to have a working knowledge of it As men she says and no More difficult for them than it is for their Brothers. Mrs. Medwell is Secretary and Leader of the recently formed Walkerville ladies lifesaving club the first of its kind in the state solely for women. There Are 15 girls learning lifesaving from the instructor or. Medwell. About half a dozen Are sufficiently advanced to give demonstrations. Formerly some of the women of the Walkerville swimming club received Tui Tion in lifesaving with the men. The girls have had special lifesaving costumes made for them and then practise on Sun Day mornings at the local Pool. Every swimmer should know some thing about lifesaving said mrs. Med Well. Girls i think can learn just As easily As men. It is not so much strength that is required but the Knack of it. Some of the most efficient lifesavers Are Small men lessons of the Cricket. ? l basis for Sermon tomorrow lessons from the Cricket Field will be outlined by the president of the count cil of churches Rev. W. Hawke at the Temple Henley Beach tomorrow even ing. If a Man does a Shady thing you will hear it said at once that is not Cricket or. Hawke will say. We instinctively feel Cricket should be a clean and an honorable sport. Cricket has always recognised Merit in a Man apart from the color of his skin or his status in society and christianity has Ever done the same. It is a sin Gular fact that All the Best cricketers have been Church men. Some of the outstand ing English and australian players have been leading Church workers. It is the average that tells in Cricket not sudden firework displays. So in the Christian life there should be constant preparation to keep fit. The cricketer on the Field must be wide awake or he will be caught napping and in that critical moment May miss a catch which will affect the result of the game. In like fashion to Lead a Good life we must watch or we will fail. Leadership important it is not the biggest score or the beet Bowling figures that deserves the most Praise. All circumstances must be taken into account. A big score May be made on an easy wicket against poor Bowling and a Good Bowling average May be obtained because of a bad wicket that suits the Bowler. Lord ? Hawke was one of the greatest captains England Ever produced and he made Yorkshire Cricket what it is today. At the end of every season he gave sealed envelopes to certain players rewarding them for Good Effort during the season. If he had been Here Woodfull would have received an envelope for batting right through the second innings of the recent Tost match while the others were being Skittles. There Are certain qualifications for the Good cricketer he must be courteous Friendly and sociable and. He must be ready to work hard whatever his position on the Field. A great Deal depends in Cricket on leadership. A great Captain always brings the Best out of his men. We have a great Captain in Christ who knows the game and if we do our Best he will finally Reward us richly new year special closes saturday january 28, at 1 Results and prizes posted january 31.
