SOCIALISING THE EMPIRE Sir Oswald Mosley is working very bard to secure the conversion to his new cult of the whole mess of British labor. Although in furtherance of jthat cult be has left the British Ministry, be has not so for broken with it as to cease to be officially cumbered among its supporters. But he has issued a manifesto diametrically op posed to its policy, which, as pro pounded at the late Imperial Con ference, is against the control of im ported foodstuffs, bulk purchase, the compulsory use of a proportion of Empire-grown ?reals, and the regula tion of prices. All these are features of -what Sir Oswald calls his "National Policy," which aims at "the orderly, balanced development of the resources of the Empire," for the realisation of which he proposes a 20-years' plan.

HELP FROM SCIENCE There is little need in these days to dwell on the immense benefits science has conferred on all branches of industry, and particularly those re- lating to primary production.

AUST. LOANS ADVANCE In London PROSPECT OF NEW MINISTRY MAT BE RESPONSIBLE LONDON, February 24. "The Morning Post," in another lengthy comment on the Australian financial position, states that the pros- pect of a Change of Government pos- s sibly accounted for an advance in r Australian loans to-day. s Mr. Lang's speech has been exten f sively cabled to England, though it s was not generally known before the . Stock Exchange closed. ? The "Morning Post" says it looks as though the dtuation is fast working I up to a political crisis, and that it appears as though repudiation of at ' least some portion of the interest on 1 New South Wales loans will actually | become an election issue. : "It appears further, says the "Morn l ing Post," that Mr. Lang's very extra i vagant language will defeat itself. It ! is not impossible to feel some sympathy with his reference to dumped Russian | wheat at a moment when Australia is ' suffering through a fall in its price. \ Commonwealth Responsible "...

Kelly), a meeting of sheep- breeders, graziers, stock agents, meat exporters, selling brokers, and sheep skin exporters was held at the New market sateyards to-day to protest agains; the imposition of an export duty of id. a lb. on sheepskins exported from Australia. Senator Guthrie said:—"By this stupid, # last-minute, ill-considered, al most criminal act the whole of the sheepskin industry of Australia has been paralysed. When the Senate meets I intend to move that the duty be disallowed. My motion will undoubtedly be agreed to in that Chamber, and also, I think, in the House of Representa tives, if Mr. Theodore's Ministry—l cail it that because he seems to be bossing it—agrees to impose the embargo. Then we will throw it out." Appeal to Prime Minister The following motion was agreed to unanimously:— "That ...
POLITICAL REFORM LEAGUE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
POLITICAL REFORM LEAGUE "At no time in the history of Aus- tralia has there been a greater need for public men of strength, honesty, and integrity.' said Mr. K.C. Wilson, who presided at the second annual meeting of the Political Reform League in the Chamber of Manufactures Building last night. "At no time v^s there been greater need for an or ganisation actively engaged in seek ing out and securing such m-en. The success achieved by the league dur ing 1930 is in marked contrast to the utter failure of the Commonwealth Government during the same year. The spectacle of the ship of Australia slowly sinking under the guidance of a spineless captain and an unruly crew denotes a year in our lives of which we must all be ashamed. Our credit has been destroyed, and our honor attacked. All who jealously guard the honor and reputation of Australia must stand together in removing the greatest blot on Australia's landscape —the Scullin-Theodore Government." (Applause.)

MODERN MODE OF LIFE ATTACKED BY BISHOP DWYER Sydney, February 24. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
MODERN MODE OF LIFE ATTACKED BY BISHOP DWYER Sydney, February 24. The Roman catholic Bishop of Wagga (Dr. Dwyer), in a Lenten pas- toral, attacks the modern mode of life. Bishop Dwyer says the laws of the nations generally are so lax that only crimes like murder, thefts, and assaults are looked upon as serious. Licentious- I ness and dishonesty in private dealings are rife and go unpunished. Incen tives to loose morality are broadcast by most picture theaters with impunity, and encouragement is found in the in decent advertisements and photogra phic representations in a section of un scrupulous papers. Hardly an issue comes from the press without portraits which excire unclean, curious, and in nocent youths of both sexes. "It seems that Australian legislators are hoping to keep the people of our own country in prosperity while allow ing foreign and domestic agents of Soviet Russia freedom to introduce in sidious propaganda among unsuspsct ing and gullible people." continued Bishop D...
BRITISH GOVERNMENT'S TROUBLES UNABLE TO PASS TRADES DISPUTES BILL LONDON, February 23. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
BRITISH GOVERNMENT'S TROUBLES UNABLE TO PASS TRADES DISPUTES BILL LONDON, February 23. The fate of the Trades Disputes Bill continues to hang on a thread The Attorney-General (Sir William Jowitt) met members of the Parliamentary Labor Party to-day and explained to them secretly the difficulties confront ing the Government in fulfilling its pledge because of the attitude of the Liberals, who insist on stiffening the limitations on sympathetic strikes. The Conservatives, he said, would certainly support any Liberal amendment in that direction, with the inevitable result that the Government would be defeated. It is understood that Labor members made it clear that they would prefer to lose the Bill rather than see it weakened. As a matter of fact, they were of opinion it was already too weak, and not the Bill expected of the Gov ernment. In the meantime the Government's troubles have increased at the pros pect of Sir Oswald Mosley resigning, accompanied by his wife. Lady Cynthia Mosley....

ARE BIG CARS SAFER? "Hold" the Road All Right, Magistrate Says [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
ARE BIG CARS SAFER? "Hold" the Road All Right, Magistrate Says The contention that a large car could be driven at high speeds with far more safety than a small car, was advanced by Mr. H.G. Alderman, in the Traffic Court yesterday, when de fending a man against a charge of driving at a speed dangerous to the public. He pointed out that the greater weight and wind resistance of an eight cylinder sedan car. such as his client was driving, gave greater control to the driver. It held the road better than a light car and, if it were equipped with four-wheel hydraulic brakes, could be driven at high speeds with far greater safety. Mr. W. TTnii SM.-A big car holds the road all right. Everybody gets out of its road.
SUPPORT FROM POLITICAL PARTIES Details of Bill Awaited [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
SUPPORT FROM POLITICAL PARTIES Details of Bill Awaited A favorable reception by political leaders was given to the Government's plan. They are anxious to see details of the Bill, but the basic principle of assistance to enable the farmers to put in crops this year was approved heartily. The only criticism was of the delay. The outline of the proposed legislation given in "The Advertiser" yesterday was studied closely at Par liament' House, and while some mem bers suggested there were phases that would need to be examined carefully, the feeling was unanimous that the passage of the Bill would be expedited. Air. Butler's Complaint Judging the suggested legislation by what had been published, the leader of the Opposition (Mr. Butler) said he could see little objection to it. "The only complaint I have to make.' he said, "is tliat Parliament has not been given an earlier opportunity ro consider the whole question of assis tance to the farming industry. Far mers have not known where they...
