Agricultural matters. It is a remarkable thing that in this state with its do Penzance on primary Industry and particularly on agriculture the agricultural department should be As sadly neglected As it undoubtedly is. Attention has recently been focussed on the matter through a re shuffle of accommodation among government departments which has accentuated the fact that the agricultural department is in this respect As in others the worst treated of All the building in which the department has its being is very old and is most inconvenient. Moreover it is said to be positively unsafe in that the materials of which it is largely constructed Are highly inflammable. When it is considered that the build ing houses extremely valuable collections both of data and insects and that a fire did actually break out there some time ago fortunately without serious consequences it May is gathered that the state is gambling unnecessarily with some of its most valuable assets. The need for a new building to House the department of agriculture has Long been recognised but the department s requirements do not end there. Consider last year s expenditure on the department which amounted to �58,000 including �10,000 for vermin destruction and set this against the state s income from agriculture which totalled�17,000,000, and it becomes obvious that either the state is getting excellent service at a very cheap figure or that the state is seriously neglecting those industries which provide the bulk of its income. We Are inclined to think that the latter is More nearly True. ?4 it would be foolish to deny the a the government must practice eco Nomy in administration not Only during a period of depression but at All times. The plea of Economy should not however be made an excuse for starving such an important department As that of agriculture. Too much depends on its activities to justify any restriction. It was a matter for complaint with several local organisations last year that the agricultural adviser who was stationed at Denmark and whose activities extended Over the South j coast and lower great Southern j areas was removed from the Dis j strict and was not replaced. It was ? distinctly stated at the time that this was an Economy measure and that Money was not available to keep the appointment filled. Since then an application has been made by the Albany agricultural society for the re appointment of an agricultural i adviser and it is certain that this proposal will be favourably regard j de throughout the whole of the Dis j strict concerned. Personally we feel that the request could quite Well and reasonably have gone fur ther and that the establishment of a state experimental farm adjacent to Albany might also have been con j Side red. Still the granting of one j request might presage and justify the preferring of the other. I we have pointed out before that Albany and Che Neal by District cannot be compared with other Agri ? i cultural districts in the state be cause of a variety of reasons. The biggest considerations that must Rule development Here Are soil and climatic conditions. In no other part of the state to our knowledge can these conditions be duplicated. Yet there has been less work done Here by the government in the direction of agricultural Experiment than almost anywhere else. Such experiments As were commenced were not persevered with. And it was left to private inter ests to carry on from the Point where the government stopped. It must be admitted that private interests have done marvellous work of great Benefit to the District and to the state but the expenditure entailed limits to activities in this direction considerably. Certain Valu Able facts have been proved How Ever concerning various types of land quite close to Albany. A number of Farmers have proved beyond doubt that bottle Brush swamps can be turned to excellent account in the production of summer Fod Ders while others have demonstrated that Blackboy Flats Are not use less As was commonly supposed till recently but that they can on the contrary be utilised successfully for j the growth of pastures. These Are Only two of Many directions in which experiments have been Pur sued with Gratifying results. The late . Haynes was a Man who developed extraordinary Faith in this part of the state. It was our privilege to accompany him Only a few Days before his tragically sudden death on a tour of part of his mount Many peaks property. We recall that he showed us some typical Blackboy Flats on which he had been carrying out pasture experiments with considerable Success and that he took us to the Boundary Fence of his property and showed us the same land in its Virgin state. He pointed northwards and said that there was More than 150,009 acres of similar country lying Idle. He envisioned the Day when the whole of that land would be opened to settlement through a properly de Vised scheme with drainage and roads provided for. What such development would mean to this part of Western Australia is not hard to envisage and we believe the Day must come in the not far Distant future when that land will be jetted. Experimenters like or. Mca. Henning and the late h. C. Haynes have brought that Day much nearer but the responsibility Shoul i not rest with them entirely. It is i the state which will Benefit and the state should be working Side by Sid � with private Enterprise. But . Chance is there of this happening while the agricultural department is treated As a sort of Cinderella and asked to get along under severe handicaps of finance and accommodation Western Australia just now is a j ther severely afflicted with Gold fever. It is a Good disease to have with our extensive Mineral deposits but it should never be forgotten that the state made its greatest Gress during a period when Gold mining was almost stagnating and when the bulk of our National in come was being derived from Agri culture. It is to agriculture that the state must continue to look and the Industry is worthy of much More generous treatment than it has been receiving. Local an general i Regent theatre. Monday tuesday wednesday and matinee wednesday 3 ., Noel Coward s epic of the Empire cavalcade Fox film s proudest achievement starring Clive Brook. Noel Coward s Long awaited Caval Cade depicting the Parade of the twentieth Century As it has affected great Britain and her sons came to the screen of the Regent theatre on saturday. Its showing must be set Down As something of an event a distinguished important contribution to the screen justifying All that had been expected of it. Caval Cade is superbly acted by a Large cast. It is beautifully produced Well nigh perfect. The film is mov ing inspiring. In Short no fault can be found with cavalcade Here. It seems an auspicious beginning for 1933 in the motion picture world. Cavalcade approaches greatness in the Cinema. It must be seen thursday next one night Only we.

It is with some Pride that the j members of the Albany methodist j Young men s club present to the Public of Albany their grand min Strel show. As seen by advertise ment elsewhere the concert takes place in the Albert Hall on saturday next at 8 . For some weeks i past the minstrels have been prac 1 Tising their parts so that or. And i mrs.

Bones rastus Pete and Tambo Are j in great form with jokes and Wise i cracks while the songsters in Tho i rest of the company Are said to j equal any from the Continental cities though we will not say which j cities.

A London correspondent writes after hearing a Sample of or. Duke Ellington and his hot rhythm negro band As relayed by the . According to frantic requests from his legions of admirers i was not particularly impressed. Perhaps that is All wrong for the most mod Ern of the moderns in musical Lon Don have figuratively speaking taken him and his hot rhythm to their hearts. I believe that during j his season at the palladium you j could not squeeze in through the door so Many Young people from Mayfair had turned up in. Full Force or. Constant Lambert too is one of his avowed admirers. The result of All this is that quite a healthy controversy has sprung up in London for and against Duke Ellington which doubtless is All very Good for his Box office Appeal and besides provides a topic of conversation when at smart cocktail radio notes by Aerial a Queen s station. The Queen of Bulgaria the Daugh Ter of the King of Italy has received a novel present in the shape of a 3-kw broadcasting station Given her by the City of Rome. It i is understood that the Queen s own j station will shortly be testing. I sofa the capital of Bulgaria a present owns a station of Only � Kwh. When sufficient capital can be found a powerful 100-kw transmitter is to be erected near the City. _ _ broadcasting for All. Union radio Madrid is inaugurating a new feature.

The studio i is to be opened to musicians a i Thors artists writers dramatists and scientists. One Fly in the ointment May Stem the Rush of applicants everyone must consent to a reasonable preliminary process of selection and they must give Satis factory evidence of the Possession j of the necessary Talent. This seems to be the usual requirement of broadcasting organisations. Barter or apparently owing to the economic crisis a number of French firms which had signed publicity contracts with broadcasting stations have been unable to pay the Piper after the programmes have been broadcast. The stations have had no alternative but to accept payment in kind with the result that the managerial offices of some studios Are now Replete with magnificent carpets tablecloths and other trimmings. One station received a letter from a defaulter in these terms the state of my Treasury compels me to ask you to accept 200 Yoyos and a number of dolls each of which says Mamma simply on being we wonder if australian b Clas stations would agree to this. Compact layout. J if you compare the layout of a i modern set with that of a set built 1 say seven or eight years ago if you i can Lay your hands on such you Are bound to be impressed with the j extraordinary compactness which has been introduced into set design and layout during these recent years. Ii is truly amazing the Way different components which at one time would have been thought to interfere Hope Lessly with one another can be put together literally like sardines in a tin. But if you Are building up you set you want to be extremely care Ful not to overdo this passion for compactness. The first and Foremost essential in the set is efficiency in working and if compactness inter feres with efficiency Cut out the compactness just As they say if business interferes with pleasure Cut out the business. Watch the . End. The importance of spacing and layout is generally much greater at i the High frequency end of the set where . Components and conduct j tors must be properly positioned and screened. Bear in mind that screens Are always to be regarded Asab sorbers and the very fact that you use a screen Means that there is Energy to be absorbed and consequently that losses will be sustained so if you can spare a Little extra space it is All in the interests of efficiency. .
