The Advertiser and Register ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY. FEBRUARY 25, 1931. NEW HOPE FOR FARMERS [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
The Advertiser and Register ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY. FEBRUARY 25, 1931. NEW HOPE FOR FARMERS The publication of the details of the Hill Government's scheme to assist dis- tressed farmers, will Inevitably produce a changed outlook among the rural population of'South Australia.

For the vic tims of this succession of bitter disap pointments, Mr. Hill is genuinely de termined to provide an experience of another kind. His scheme is timely, even in the sense that it could not have been delayed for many days longer without being belated; and it is in tended to be applied to the relief of those whose need is greatest, and who have hitHerto had the least considera tion...
