FROM THE AR­CHIVES

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

THIS week the Man­jimup-Bridgetown Times is tak­ing a look through the ar­chives to find what hap­pened in the re­gion 50 years ago. The Black­wood Times cor­re­spond­ing edi­tion from 50 years ago came out on Novem­ber 15.

THE Ro­man Catholic cam­paign for State aid to church schools was launched on Sun­day by the Bun­bury Dio­cese.

Speak­ing at eight masses, dioce­san ed­u­ca­tion di­rec­tor Rev. Dr B. R. Ad­der­ley urged Ro­man Catholics to ap­proach all par­lia­men­tary can­di­dates fielded in next year’s elec­tions – ir­re­spec­tive of po­lit­i­cal par­ties.

SEV­ERAL coun­cil­lors have told the Bridgetown Shire Coun­cil that ratepay­ers were com­plain­ing about a re­cent cir­cu­lar stat­ing they would not be al­lowed to take house­hold rub­bish to the rub­bish tip un­der the com­pul­sory rub­bish scheme.

The shire clerk ex­plained that the cir­cu­lar had spec­i­fied that “house­hold rub­bish” could not be dumped at the tip with­out a per­mit.

THE Up­per Black­wood Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety’s an­nual show goes from strength to strength. Last Tues­day the event at­tracted a record crowd and record en­tries in the ex­hi­bi­tion classes.

THE West Aus­tralian Fruit­grow­ers As­so­ci­a­tion has re­quested a sur­vey of all ap­ple and pear or­chards in the State. This sur­vey is now be­ing con­ducted by the Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture.

BRIDGETOWN’S Trot­ting Club will open its 1967-68 sea­son on Satur­day night, De­cem­ber 9, with a six-event pro­gram.

The main event will be the Green­bushes Hand­i­cap to be run over 12 fur­longs and 96 yards.
