MYSTERY OF' SCHOOL BELL PARTLY SOLVED
IRUSSELTON, Sat : The mystery of Busselton school bell has been partly solved. The name on the bell is Geffrartl. The bell is from a three-masted Norwegian schooner which used to load timber from Qumdalup, about 11 miles
south of Busselton. The Geffrard was beached on the east side of Quinda lup jetty during a severe storm about 70 years ago. Mr. G. Harris, one of Quindalup's oldest residents— he is 79 — remembers that his brother Jack was in charge of the boats that used to take the timber to the ships because they were unable to tie up at the jetty. Headmaster S. G. Demasson still does not know the other half of the puzzle — how the bell came to the school.
