POPULAR COURT MASTER Receives Warm Welcome MAJOR STUART RETURNS [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
POPULAR COURT MASTER Receives Warm Welcome MAJOR STUART RETURNS Warmly welcomed back after a severe operation, Walter Leslie Stuart, S.M. who holds the o,ffice of Master of the Supreme Court, must have realised his wide popularity in the Civil Service and in private life. The Master is ever courteous in his dealings, and has always carried him- self with dignity while wearing the Master's robe. As his appearance sug- gest he is a military officer, and holds the rank of major. A son of the late Mr. J. M. Stuart (a former Cown Solicitor of South Australia) he received his early education at Prince Alfred Col- lege, and later at the Adelaide Univer- sity.

Butter Producers Benefit by Establishing National Brand [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
Butter Producers Benefit by Establishing National Brand Standardising butter means an in- crease in returns of £250,000 a year to farmers throughout the Commonwealth, in the opinion of Mr. McFarlane member of the Western Australian Legislative Council, who passed through Adelaide recently after a conference of the Australian Dairy Council. 'The council was brought into being by the Federal Government," he said, "mainly to uplift the quality and try to maintain prices with Denmark and New Zealand. Now, butter shipped after 1924 will go under the national brand. This will mean better returns for the producer. Hithertot New Zea- land has been getting 4/ to 6/ more a hundred weight for butter than Aus- tralia, and Denmark as much as 20/ more. Australian producers will gain a quarter of a mollion pounds more a year by the establishment of a national brand."
FROM SEA TO SEE Naval Officer Joins Minister MELBOURNE, To-day. [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
FROM SEA TO SEE Naval Officer Joins Minister MELBOURNE, To-day. After having served in the British Navy for 18 years on the Mediterra- nean, Cape and China stations, Lieut.- Com. James H. Nakgoll-Crichton arrived by the Suevic on his way to Townsville, North Queensland, where he will enter the Anglican ministry. The Lieut.-Commander left the navy shortly after the war ended, and began to study for the ministry in 1919. "I have always had a leaning to- wards the church," he said today. "I suppose the reason why I did not become a clergyman previously was because naval men enter their calling young—almost at an age when they cannot determine definitely their fu- ture." The Lieut.-Commander has not yet been ordained, and does not know what parish has been allotted to him. "I think there would be less trouble in the world if most people took up religion seriously," the newcomer de- clared when he was asked to comment upon the fact that many naval men had recently become enthusiastic de-...
CATHEDRAL FOUNDATION STONE To Be Laid October 21st [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
CATHEDRAL FOUNDATION STONE To Be Laid October 21st Right Rev. Dr. Spence (Archbishop of Adelaide) will lay the foundation stone of the alterations to St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, Wakefield street, at 3 p.m. on October 21. The cere- mony will be preceded by Pontifical High Mass at 11 a.m. The cost of these additions is esti- mated at £50,000. For the past four months workmen have been excavating and laying foundations for the alterations, which consist of widening the whole of the western aisle and building two more bays on the eastern and western sides. When completed the width of the building will be 100 ft. The original western aisle will be demolished and rebuilt. It will be double its present width. A front gable, with pinnacles, will reach to a heght of 68 ft. There will be a tower on the western side of the front, but for the time being it will stop at the height of the gable. Later it will be finished off with a spire reaching to a height equal to that of the Post Office. Ne...
Prince of Wales [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
Prince of Wales Herschel Henlere, in his grotesque cos- tume and clown-like antics, provides mirth at the Prince of Wales, and his classical playing shows him to be a great musician. He caters well for all. Audrey Knight portrays her charac- ter studies. Especially worthy of com- ment is her part of a ten-year-old schoolboy who wished she had never had a father. Billy Maloney and his Adelaide Sun- shine Kids show that we have some ex- ceptional talent here. Hayward and Hay are a pleasing comedy costume pair, and the solo numbers of Ashton and Marshall are appreciated. Winifred and Lumley provide chatter and dancing, and Eric J. Wood renders "Clothes Props" and other favorites. Steppin and Sea give the audience a break with some clever acrobatic stunts.

Wondergraph [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
Wondergraph All African romance does not neces- sarily occur in the tent of a sheik or out on the burning sands. Romance is also found in the south of that con- tinent in its dense jungles, savage tribes, and wild beasts. The Para- mount production at the Wondergraph Theatre ??? romance, new not in character but in setting. Jungles hold more romance and in- terest than any in the deserts. The everyday life of the natives, their feasts, and hunt expeditions are all shown. The favorite sport, according to the picture, seems to be attacking the safiras of the white men coming into their territory in search of gold. The second feature on the pro- gramme is Constance Binney in "Her First Love." It shows an interesting study of how working girls of mode- rate means live and love. Johnny Hines, comedian, is seen in one of his best as "Cupid." The usual travelogue and gazettes are included.

Skirts of the Law ADELAIDE WOMEN POLICE PROTECT INNOCENT GIRLS [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
Skirts of the Law ADELAIDE WOMEN POLICE PROTECT INNOCENT GIRLS "Run for your life. Here comes Kate Cocks!" There is a scatter of the little group of masculine and feminine anti-prohi- bitionists, leaving behind the recep- tacles containing liquid refreshment. One would imagine that the officer who is head of the women police in Adelaide is a fearsome, awe-inspiring being, but when one has met and talked wtih her it becomes obvious that her cause is full of heart and helpfulness. The fact that the qualifications ne- cessary to the appointment of a woman to the police force are the same as those demanded of a man, and that the sexes are equal with regard to salary and conditions does not cause a wild &nbsp; rush on the part of women to be en- rolled. In this, as in every other pro- fession,the successful are they who have a natural aptitude for the work. Even the prospect of some day being a woman Commissioner of Police does not appeal to Miss Cocks. NOT FOR MONEY'S SAKE. &...

SPRING HATS Small Models Lead STRAW WILL FOLLOW FABRIC [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
SPRING HATS Small Models Lead STRAW WILL FOLLOW FABRIC Today the small hat is acknowledged leader among spring models, with the cloche, generally a made rather than a blocked shape, in grat favor. Poke bonnets have attained promi- nence, and the casque, adapted from the poilu's helmet, is most novel of all. The high, narrow hat strikes a new note here and there. Many fashion houses show hats turned up at the back, the crown often trimmed with velvet drawn snugly round and gathered behind to form a large chou. Brims are impor- tant and notably narrower on one side than the other. The narrower side &nbsp; has a tendency to roll. Large hats are propheseid with the coming of sum- mer. LEADING MATERIALS. Fabrics, particularly plain or change- able taffeta, make the hats of the mo- ment, later to be dominated by straw. The straws most seen will be picot, Milan, crin in a finer version than ever before, some Leghorn, visca, and hair- cloth. A new Milan resembles Panama dyed in colo...
TENNIS GIRLS Camera As Menace GROUND VIEW INDELICATE [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
TENNIS GIRLS Camera As Menace &nbsp; GROUND VIEW INDELICATE Mr. F. C. Bromley, for many years secretary of the South Australian Lawn Tennis Association, says that he has never seen an instance of an attitude by a woman tennis player which could be termed indelicate. He thinks the re- marks of members of the London Lawn Tennis Association are absurd. In a recent discussion regarding the indis- criminate photographing of women players during tournaments it was said that some of the snapshots were posi- tively indelicate, not as regards dress, but apparently because of the revela- tion of more of the form than is usually seen in repose. Mrs. W. T. Rowe, champion woman tennis player of South Australia for some years, said that although she thought the views of the English Lawn Tennis Association members were hy- percritical, she was strongly of opinion that steps should be taken to prohibit photographers from sitting or kneeling on the ground to take snapshots of women players. ...
RED RUST CONQUEROR Mr. Marshall Seriously III [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923
RED RUST CONQUEROR Mr. Marshall Seriously Ill Mr. Richard Marshall, whose name is well known throughout farming com- nunities, is seriously ill at his residence at Frederick street, Unley. &nbsp; Few men in South Australia have such a career of progress to look back upon as Mr. Marshall, who is now 87 years of age. He has introduced about 1,400 varie- ties of wheat to South Australia, and &nbsp; his fight against red rust in 1866-77 is one of great interest to men on the land. Born in Devonshire, England, Mr. Marshall came of a farming family, both his father and uncle having been on the land. At 16 he emigrated to Australia after an education at Shib- bear College, where the late Chief Jus- tice Sir Samuel Way also received his early training. Yankallilla was his first stopping place in South Australia, but Mr. Mar- shall was not content with farming and wooed the Goddess of Fortune on the goldfields of Victoria. In 1865 he tried his luck way back to farming, this t...
