STATE SCHOOLS PRIMARY AND INTERMEDIATE NEW SYLLABUS OF INSTRUCTION. BRISBANE, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
STATE SCHOOLS PRIMARY AND INTERMEDIATE NEW SYLLABUS OF INSTRUCTION. BRISBANE, January 8. With the resumption of school work in Queensland primary and intermediate schools after tbe holidays, a syllabus of instruction will come into operation, which, it is claimed, will provide a broader and richer curriculum than its predecessors. &nbsp; The principal feature of the new syllabus is that English will be regarded as basic and predominant. Generally it is intended to be more flexible and less rigid than those of the past and to provide greater opportunities for creative self-impression. The new syllabus is intended to modernise prescriptions of work in each subject, to stress certain aspects of school work that have been to some ex- tent neglected, and to take into account certain educational tendencies that have come into prominence during the last quarter of a century. Regarding English, the syllabus states that English is the medium through which instruction is given, no mat...
TELEGRAMS. QUEENSLAND. BRISBANE, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
TELEGRAMS. QUEENSLAND. BRISBANE, January 8. George Lax, 12½, lost his life while swimming in a waterhole at Morningside to-day. The boy, who was bathing with two companions, got into difficulties in try- ing to swim across a creek and disap- peared before his mates could assist him. BRISBANE, January 9. The Minister for Lands (Mr. Dea- con) announced to-day that the term of the Soldier Settlement Revaluation Board had been extended to June 30th. The whole position of soldier settlers throughout Queensland was being re- viewed by the board. He considered that by that date the board would have been able to deal with all outstanding cases and complete its work. The Minister will visit Beerburrum settlement on Monday and will person- ally inquire into the position. LONGREACH, January 11. A fire broke out in Mrs. Arthur Wy- land's house, Emu-street, last night. The Brigade managed to get it under con- trol before serious damage was done, but there was trouble with hot water in the pipes....
GOLD RESERVES. AUSTRALIA'S POSITION. MELBOURNE, January 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
GOLD RESERVES. AUSTRALIA'S POSITION. MELBOURNE, January 14. The Treasurer (Mr. Theodore) an- nounced to-day that the Government, after consideration of the Australian gold reserves, was of the opinion that the position called for co-ordination in the matter of gold shipment, and the Commonwealth Bank accordingly had been authorised to acquire gold held by trading banks. This did not neces- sarily mean that the Commonwealth Bank would immediately proceed to ob- tain possession of gold held by the other banks. Representatives of those banks would be invited to meet a repre- sentative board of the Commonwealth Bank when the proposals of the Com- monwealth Bank for the future opera- tions will be discussed. Mr. Theodore added that the Government's decision was due to the steady drift of gold from Australia. It was feared that de- pletions inimical to the future position would rapidly take place. Apart from the shipment of gold by the Common- wealth Bank on its own account gold, represen...

ROYAL WEDDING IN ETERNAL CITY POPULAR ENTHUSIASM. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
ROYAL WEDDING IN ETERNAL CITY POPULAR ENTHUSIASM. The wedding of Prince Umberto and Princess Marie Jose was the occasion of a display of pageantry such as has seldom been surpassed &nbsp; even in Italy—a land in which the mentality of the people shows a dis- &nbsp; tinct tendency towards the picturesque. Church, State and populace all combined to make the event as im- pressive as it could be. Bells pealed, guns boomed, white pigeons soared aloft and the crowd cheered. The distinctive feature of the wedding was that it was the first in the history of the Italian Royal family since 1870, which was fol- lowed by a reception at the Vatican —a result of the recent rapproach- &nbsp; ment between the Vatican and the Quirinal. PRINCE UMBERTO. ROME, January 9. To-day all roads led to Rome, where unprecedented scenes of splendour characterised the royal marriage cere- mony, which commenced at 9 o'clock this morning in the Quirinal chapel, where four kings and queens an...
CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE TWELFTH CONGRESS. LONDON, January 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE TWELFTH CONGRESS. LONDON, January 13. The Federation of Chambers of Com- merce has informed the Australian Press Association that the 12th con- gress, to be held in the Guildhall in May, is receiving unprecedented support both from Britain and the Dominions. As it immediately precedes the Im- perial Conference, it is hoped that the influence of its decisions will result in the promotion of inter-Imperial trade, which is the chief object of the con- gress. Referring to the proposed bilateral discussions between the Dominions, it is explained that the scheme contem- plates separate meetings, say, of Aus- tralia and Canada or Australia and South Africa, to consider the stimula- tion of reciprocal trade and report on this. The Federation is confident that the innovation will prove the most out- standing feature of the congress. It is understood that the next con- gress will be held in New Zealand in 1933. Sir Gilbert Byle, on behalf of the British preparatory commit...
BOLSHEVISM. TO SIR UP COLOURED RACES. BERLIN, January 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
BOLSHEVISM. TO SIR UP COLOURED RACES. BERLIN. January 13. '' He was convinced that it was a question of Bolshevism or civilisation and it could only be solved by the sword as other great problems of history,' explained General Hoffman's widow in connection with the forged notes dis- closures. ''My husband expressed the opinion that Bolshevism was just to stir up the coloured races of Asia and Africa against the Europeans, who must sooner or later, present a united front and fight Bolshevism. I think events have borne out my husband's view.''
COST OF CLOTHING. SOME COMPARISONS. LONDON, January 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
COST OF CLOTHING. SOME COMPARISONS. LONDON, January 13. There is a most interesting discussion at Bradford and Leeds regarding the cost of clothing. A recent arrival from Melbourne gave the cost of a suit of Geelong tweed at £7 7s., but an Anglo-Austra- lian says that from his own experience generally it is at least £2 dearer. Leeds tailors express the opinion that even £7 7s. is dear for a suit of Aus- tralian cloth. They have been investi- gating the actual proportion of the cost of cloth to the finished £7 7s. suit and have found that a Bradford serge length made up of Australian 64's wool tops costs £1 3s. 7½d., leaving £6 3s. 4½d. for the making. They are anxious to examine the suits of the Australian Minister for Customs (Mr. Feuton), so that they can compare the quality with their own. Meanwhile, they suggest that Australians might like to com- pare the cost of the cloth to the charges for making in Australia.
NAVAL DISARMAMENT CONFERENCE OPENS NEXT TUESDAY. KING'S SPEECH TO BE BROADCAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
NAVAL DISARMAMENT CONFERENCE OPENS NEXT TUESDAY . &nbsp; KING'S SPEECH TO BROADCAST The Naval Disarmament Conference will be opened on Tues- day next, January 21st, at 11 a.m. Greenwich time (about 9 p.m. Sydney time). The King's speech and the opening pro- ceedings for the first two hours will be broadcast to all parts of the Empire. January 19th has been set aside by the Church of England and the Free Churches as a day of prayer for the success of the Conference. Mr. Ramsay MacDonald is optimistic as to the success of the Conference, and so is Mr. Scullin, the Prime Minister of Australia. THE CONFERENCE ROOM, St. James's Palace, London, in which the Five Power Naval Conference is being held in January next. WASHINGTON, January 7. President Hoover to-day described the naval conference as the most im- portant of international conferences for a great many years. He added that probably it would be the most import- ant for many years to come. LONDON, January 7. The Archbishops ...
LOSS OF THE MANUKA. FOUND GUILTY OF NEGLIGENCE. AUCKLAND, January 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
LOSS OF THE MANUKA. FOUND GUILTY OF NEGLIGENCE. AUCKLAND, January 14. The inquiry by the nautical court into the loss of the Manuka concluded to-day. Captain Ross Clark has been found guilty of negligence, in view of the visibility, in failing to take all available precautions to ascertain his position before altering his course. The court found that this was a contribut- ing factor to the disaster, which, how- ever, was also found to be due in part to the abnormal set of the tide inshore. The court was unable to determine on the evidence why the ship was six miles south of her course. The certificates of the captain and the third officer were returned and the captain ordered to pay 2s. 6d. costs of the investigations.
AVIATION. LONDON, January 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
AVIATION. LONDON, January 7. The Secretary of State for Air (Lord Thomson) was flying from London to Paris this afternoon, when the aero- plane was forced to come down at Ab- beville on account of fog. &nbsp; LONDON, January 9. The Air Ministry announces that as a result of a collision in the air, which occurred to-day at Abushueir (Egypt) between two Avro machines of the fly- ing training school, Flight-lieutenant Richard Greenslade, Flying Officer Charles Alpin. Corporal Williams, and Leading Aircraftsman Leonard Green were killed. Charles Edson Galpin was a native of Wanganui. He came to London in August and became a short service pilot officer in the Air Force. PARIS, January 14. Man Mohan Singh, the Indian air- man, secured a new propeller at Le Bourget for the machine, with which he entrained for Nyon. He proposed to resume his flight to India to-mor- row, but according to a message from Nyon, while Singh was ansemt in Paris, the wind overturned his machine and serious...
SLUMP IN SILVER. UPSETS CHINA. SHANGHAI, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
SLUMP IN SILVER. UPSETS CHINA. SHANGHAI, January 9. China is suffering badly through the fact that her currency is based on silver. Readers of the metal market reports know that silver is now somewhere in the neighbourhood of 1s. 6d. an ounce. This means that it takes a good many more taels to equal a British sovereign or an American gold dollar than it did before the recent slump. China seems to have a remarkable attachment to silver currency. The Mexican silver dollar is as much in vogue as the native tael. Meanwhile finance is overshadowing political affairs. The Nanking Government is consid- ering measures to deal with the chaotic unfinancial exchange situation created by the slump in the price of silver, which has brought ruin to foreign mer- chants and firms. Panic has occurred among exchange speculators, and there have been numer- ous suicides, including Szechunyu, nep- hew of the Chinese Minister in London, and Dr. Alfred Kaohze, in conscquence of the loss of 200,000 dollars...
TO OVERTHROW SOVIET SENSATIONAL REVELATIONS IN GERMAN TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
TO OVERTHROW SOVIET SENSATIONAL REVELATIONS IN GERMAN TRIAL. &nbsp; The difficulty of maintaining diplomatic relations with the pre- cent Russian Government is not likely to be lessened by the state- ments made in a trial which is going on in Germany. While it is evident that a Georgian was simply anxious to save his native country from Russian domination, there are suggestions that others were actuated by economic motives connected with the rich oil wells at Baku and at other places in Southern Russia. BERLIN, January 9. A 30 days' trial began on Tuesday of the ''uncrowned King of Georgia,'' Pro- fessor Shavla Karunidze, and his com- patriot, Sadathiera Schwili, also six Germans, on a charge of conspiracy to forge masses of Russian notes in the hope of causing an economic crash in Russia and overthrowing the Soviet by a rush attack led by the Tannenberg hero, General Hoffmann. Sensational evidence implicating lead- ing English political personages was given by one of the de...
£7,000,000 IN WAGES. PAID BY SUGAR INDUSTRY. CANBERRA, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
£7,000,000 IN WAGES. PAID BY SUGAR INDUSTRY. (From Our Special Representative. ) CANBERRA, January 10. There has of late been a good deal of criticism of the cost of the sugar indus- try to the southern States. According to one critic, Mr. Norman, who spoke on the subject to the Hobart Chamber of Commerce, the sugar agreement is costing Tasmania £1000 a day more than that State would have to pay if sugar were imported free of duty. Another critic, Mr. R. H. Webster, of Ariah Park, New South Wales, writes to the "Sydney Morning Herald'' : — ''Sugar, as one of the best foods we have, &nbsp; should be available at the cheapest pos- &nbsp; sible price. As we use 761,600,000 lb. of it per annum, it is a most important item in our domestic economy, and the sugar agreement is actually stopping the peopling of the tropics with whites." This is a rather remarkable statement, seeing that one of the chief arguments in favour of the sugar industry and an embargo on imported suga...
