Albany Advertiser (Newspaper) - December 12, 1932, Albany, Western AustraliaNational Library of Australia Cricket Albany association. Redmond beat North West. Redmond carried the Day against North West at Centennial Oval on saturday. The country team seems to be rather a remarkable Combina Tion in that each week it appears to dig up a batsman or two to make a decent stand. This week it was r. And g. Norton who Between them scored 45 of the team s 67 runs. North West s Effort was rather feeble but saw West Parry make another Good stand for 10 runs while Charlie Nicholls went one better with la. Incidentally it is rather remarkable that Young Parry is not Given More encouragement with the Ball. He is a boy who Seldom fails to get a wic Ket or two yet he jets Little Opportunity of showing what he can do. Both he and Phil should be Given every Chance for they Are among the most promising Colts that Albany has. Scores Redmond. A. Mcgough Lbw Milne. 1 r. Norton c and to Norman 28 g.

To not the least interesting of the entertainments arranged for Che Dele Gates to the fruit growers Loafer ence last week was the tour of th-2 upper and lower Kalgan districts arranged by or. Len Hill on the afternoon of saturday dec. 3. The party included messes. A. Thomson and c. H. Witt Noom m , a. Piesse m.l.a-, Lake vice presi Dent of the .f.g.a., a. Cullen Allwood James and Many visitors. The tour commenced with a visit to the property of or. W. Gibb at the King River one of the oldest properties in this District or. Gibb s father having settled there in 1891. The Orchard which consists chiefly of jonathans Cielos dunns delicious and Yates seems to flourish in the Light soil and looks Well. The visit ors were also shown a variety known As Ballarat which should develop in to a very popular cooking Apple. One could not help being entertained by the Good natured banter that took place Between growers from the South West and our local growers resulting no doubt in great Mutual Benefit. Remedies and pre 1 vent were also discussed in con j Section with pests prevalent at this time of the year. The useful sex j Amples of Cross fertilisation and j Leader grafting were explained to the. Amateurs in the party. Or. Gibb j Lias interested himself in the making j of agricultural pipes and has a tented his method. The results As j shown to the party appeared Emin j entry satisfactory and inexpensive j n construction. Time did not permit a Stop at or. Montgomery s property but in pass i ing the party were Able to gain some of the extensive improvements j that have been made. It was Evi j Dent that it is a Fine property and that the owner intends to lose no ? time in bringing it into full use. J the Orchard of messes. Allwood and James on the Bank of the Kal-1 Gan River was next inspected. Nearby or. James Drew the Atten Tion of the visitors to a paddock con Taining magnificent mixed clovers and other grasses. The visitors were particularly impressed by the fact that the area has not been ploughed or broken up since 1917, and the Only seed it received was put there by the Stock. Ninety pounds of superphosphate per annul is used As a Topdressing. The paddock is not Cut for Hay but is eaten off by Stock. The party moved on to or. Len Hill s Fine property regarded As the show place of the District. The or Chard of some 30 acres overlooks the Raigan River though the useful Ness of the waterway since motor traffic became general has Given Way to Road transport. While or. Hill discussed fruit growing with Kindred spirits or. Trevor Hill showed others what can be produced in the Way of Lucerne and Field peas. From some two acres about nine tons of j Lucerne is produced by several Cut Tings a year. He considers that in the Case of Lucerne heavy Topdressing Well repays the expense. On the other hand the visitors were shown an acre of Field peas Broad casted with a manure which is producing Well apparently it is too cold for Lucerne Flea and red mites As the property is free of them. Or. Hill is to be congratulated on his family As even the ladies under the direction of miss Alix Hill assist with the care of livestock in the shape of about 250 head of Black Orpington fowls together with about 300 chickens. Their appearance shows evidence of careful manage ment. Some 300 sheep Graze on the Pas Tures and or. Hill s Success with Stock seems to be due to some extent to the fact that he runs them in Small paddocks. He has a year Ling Bull which shows particularly Fine Promise and also the nucleus of a Good milking Herd. Afternoon Tea was taken at hop son s Tea rooms where at the in stance of or. A. Thomson m.l.c., supported by or. H. Lake or. Hill was thanked for the Outing and congratulated on the excellent manner in which As chairman of the Albany Branch of the fruit growers association he had arranged the meetings and social functions. Or. Hill in reply expressed pleasure at the of i per Unity that had been Given him j of showing the visitors the country j and was generous in his Praise of All i who had assisted him. I the homeward journey was with i out incident until the Golf links i were reached. There what appeared to be a Brand new Golf Ball was seen lying in the Middle of the Road. The two members of the upper House hurled themselves on it reckless of j danger from motor traffic but i through politeness or Lack of Speed the local member was forced to sur i Render the trophy to his colleague from Katanning the views of labour j the opinions expressed hereunder Are not necessarily the views of this j � i i or. A. G. Davidson general Man Ager of the Bank of new South Wales i says Central Bank action to hold the average of prices steady at Levels admitting of a revival of Enterprise is the most hopeful expedient of re Lief from the torment of depression in the midst of i that is an important admission since it is quite in line with the j banking Reform proposals formulated by the australian labour party and j i put Forward by the Scullin govern ment Only to be thrown out by a j tory Senate. J the essence of the labour party s j proposals was to make additional Money available by Means of Central j i Reserve Bank credit i.e., by the j Commonwealth Bank and extend it j through the usual channels to Busi j Ness enterprises industries and gov Ern ments upon proper Security and j for such purpose As would increase j the production of real wealth or is ital is or extend profitable services. I the amount of Money to be made available was to depend upon the movement of Price Levels. The Price Levels Ware not to be allowed to in crease beyond the average level of 1925-29, and were to be stabilised fit that level. It is Clear from the foregoing that or. A. G. Davidson now concurs with the australian labour party in that viewpoint. This is not due to any outstanding prescience on the part of or. Davidson. The labour government was damned and Des troyed in 1931 for advocating a course of Reform which to Day is regarded by the greatest economists the Foremost banking authorities and thousands of the Ablest writers on finance As the Wisest course to take in tackling the problem of Depres Sion. While there May be general agreement on the main line of the australian labour party s financial Reform proposals however or. A. G. Davidson and others of that ilk would probably object to the kind of Central Bank proposed by labour. Or. Davidson would insist on the Cen Jetral Bank being run by private Bank i ers. Labour of the other hand in lists that such a Bank should be a i National institution free from the i influence of private Banks j or. Theodore once explained the j position thus the credit resources j of a nation Are too great a responsibility and Are too important a fac Tor in the economic life of the people to be owned controlled manipulated and exploited by a few Trad ing Banks and private financiers. We shall have no stability of currency or of Price Levels no abundance of Cre Dit at cheap rates for use in Industry arid no cure of periodic depression with the attendant unemployment until we organise our credit resources As a great Sublie service owned and controlled by National the logic of this declaration is now More than confirmed by the March of events.

P. W. Smart to hear the remarks. I Well remember the night that councillor Catling and i launched our scheme for the acquisition of All the privately owned blocks surround ing the old Ulster Road recreation i ground with a View of making what is now an accomplished fact a great sports ground. Or. Catling had gone around quietly and got an option Over the lot at a reasonable j Price and then made known the object. The councillors All fell in with the in fact thought it an excellent scheme. But in the next is sue of the despatch we were severely criticised for our however the land was secured be fore we retired from the Council. The next administration floated a loan and had the ground cleared ploughed and fenced. Some tame elapsed and then a working Bee of local sports after weeks of labour made a race course and later on the Council and racing club completed the Job. Still later on the Albany a. And Society came on the scene with their fixture with the result of races football j Cricket hockey fire Bride Demon stration and the show All being concentrated on the one ground. Now let me ask my readers where we were in the wrong or what Folly we committed prior to the Advent of the present race course the an Nual races were held some distance out along the Perth Road and Cost patrons 2/6 each Way besides having to travel along a Dusty Road and take a sporting Chance about getting a ride at All. All sports were held on the Parade Street ground while the show was generally held in the town Hall. Situated where it is people May walk to the present ground without any inconvenience to themselves or they May ride if they so desire. Or. A.

Just such is letters to Teg by Patrick Adam who we were Surpris a it to learn is a Mere child of six teen Summers. Mot a male child incidentally but a girl which perhaps makes such a Book the More remark Able. Letters to Teg purports to be a series of letters written by a flapper to her father unhappily As it appears divorced from her Mother. Pat the flapper says repeatedly that she is in search of sophistication but we cannot say that i the Book Berta is much sigh of in . Not Nind you that it is Nasty but it betrays a con i Sid Erable knowledge of modern men and women. The author writes with a charging Naivette and there is a chuckle in almost every line As she relates her extraordinary adventures to her we must say very lenient father. She is apparently the com plete Tomboy and Falls intend ont of scrapes As Only puppies and pats can. Her efforts to Lead her beloved Friend Ginger whose real name is Virginia away from the snares of Matrimony provide some most laughable situations even though they eventually prove All in vain. She also tries her hand at shaping the destinies of other friends and acquaintances away from Matri Mony with a singular Lack of Success. In fact they All seem to get married even her own father and Mother deciding that another venture on the Stormy seas is Worth trying. The. Style of the Book is fresh and captivating with its Clever satires on so City As the writer sees it. To add to its Charm it is illuminated throughout with Black and White drawings the work of the author illustrating Well nigh every incident in the Book and proving pats Abi Lity As an artist As Well As a writer. We enjoyed letters to Teg very much indeed. Letters to Teg by Patrick Adam Hodder and Staughton Ltd. Price 7/6, our copy from the publishers.
