Diner: No. I'm the hungry sole with an empty plaice -and hoping that you'll soon fillet. - Ruth HaUett (II), Howrah, Tas. Australia Dear Editor, I know we must progress but I can't help feeling that the more we progress, the .more we spoil our beautiful country. For instance: a friend of mine bought a house very near the beach, but just after they bought the house, a block of flats was built and now they "can't even see the sea. We make our cities bigger and bigger but how often do we think of the beautiful countryside that was once there. Our cars get faster and faster and let out more smoke than ever and spoil our fresh air. This is OUR country and I think we should do something. -Kathy Hildren(ll), Clovelly. Dear Editor, I have grown up in Australia and over the years I have watched a great country destroying itself. Today there are so many strikes by people wanting higher wages, shorter working hours and longer holidays. If we continue with battles like this our country will sink slowly into economic ruin and maybe then we will all wake up to see what we have done. people cannot work peace- JJILl, fully and accept the situation w)Fs' and make an effort to help the Government to run the country. - Penelope Stroud (15) Gordon. WINDY DAY: Prize of $5 to ansen Lane Cove. Bedtime Dear Editor, I disagree with Sharon McDermott (November 14) about the time children should go to bed. I think that children up to 13 years old and maybe a bit older should be in bed by at least 10 o'clock, because a growing child needs all the sleep that he or she, can get. But that doesn't include weekends.

One day, Harry rang up his friend Fred. Harry asked Fred if he would come to the fair with him. Fred said yes, and they' started discussing the clothes they would wear. Harry said he would wear a purple top and. red slacks, with his tail curled up. Fred said he would wear a blue top and green slacks. When it was time to go, both little piglets- were feeling very excited, and Harry look- -ed beautiful with his tail curled up. Fred and Harry both, had . fun at the fair. Then it was time to go home. When Harry got home he asked his mother to uncurl his tail, but, try as she would, she , couldn't! Poor Harry, having to stay like that for the rest of his life! But it wasn't so bad after all, for all the other pigs thought he looked so nice that all of them curled up their tails too. But, just like Harry, they couldn't uncurl them either - and that's why pigs have curly tails. Prize of $4 to Margot Lee (9), Farrer, ACT; . James King arrived in New South Wales from Scotland in 1827 and set up a business as a general merchant in King Street, Sydney. He was given a grant of land at Irrawang, a few miles north of Raymond Terrace, where he produced high quality earthenware. This was sold throughout the colony. In 1854, specimens of Irrawang pottery were shown in Sydney, with other products which were chosen frqm New South Wales to go to the Paris Exhibition. In addition to his pottery business, King devoted much of his time to his vineyard, planted in 1 832. The vines came from Spain, France arid Portugal. In 1836 his first wine was made. Raymond Terrace was the first area in Australia to produce wine for export. As a result of careful processing, the wine was of high quality, and received praise in Europe, as well as in Sydney. James King was a keen business man, and he contributed greatly to the development of the area in its early days. He died in London1 on November 29,. 1857, and his memory is perpetuated in a scholarship. This is awarded bi-annually by Sydney University, and enables the holder to study for three years in either Europe or America. Prize of $3 to Toni Edstem (14), Raymond Terrace.
