Rusty Frame Will Burn Out Headlights [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 6 October 1931

Rusty Frame Will Burn Out Headlights WHEN headlight bulbs bum out it will usually be found that they are being supplied with excess current. If the battery is not overcharged, it is almost sure to be due to a high re sistance connection at some point be tween the generator and the battery. This may be at the generator cut out, at the ammeter, at the starting motor switch, at the battery connec tions, or where the battery is grounded to the frame. It might be due to rust on the frame, corrosion on the battery terminals, or some of the wires being improperly soldered in the ter minals. As the resistance of the cir cuit increases, the current flowing through that circuit will also Increase, and in some cases become so great ■ as to burn out the lights.

FEDERAL ARBITRATION "SERBONIAN BOG OF TECHNICALITIES" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 6 October 1931

FEDERAL ARBITRATION "SERBONIAN BOG OF TECHNICALITIES" To the Editor I am, Sir. &co., K. C. WILSON, Chairman of Committees, Political Reform League. Sir—Mr. Justice Starke, of the High Court, criticised the Federal Arbitra-<*> tion Court as a "Serbonian bog" of technicalities. Judge Beeby. of the Federal Arbitration Court, retaliates by saying that the "Serbonian bog" of technicalities referred to is the creation of the High Court. Both apparently agree that the term is apt, and their I opinions coincide with the majority or thinking citizens of Australia. A court which by its constitution necessitates a dispute, and an inter-State one at that, before it can function at all Is not a tribunal likely to bring about that friendly relation between employer and employe which is so essential in the prevention of industrial disputes. Em ployer and employe should combine to abolish this useless and costly battleground for unwilling litigants.—

It would be on a oar \rith the late iniauitous euear commit tee of enquiry, where the sugar in terests were in the majority, and the summing uo a foregone conclusion. What is the use of battling to keep down the cost of living to so many of us who are on the bread line, and who desire to do our own buying on the "cash and cam-" system for the purpose of reducing costs? There is a lot of humbus talked about the comparative hyeiene in tlie two systems. On both sides it ie a matter ...
