The Geraldton Guardian & Express FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 1929 GERMAN REPARATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 18 January 1929

'(She -&evulbUm (guardian & (Expire* FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 1929 GERMAN BEPABATIONS It has been predicted, apparently with sound reason, that reparation pay- ' ments from Germany to the Allies will prove to be the supreme international question during 1929. It is very Jif ficult at this distance to formulate any thing like an' accurate estimate of the justice of the claims advanced on either side of the existing dispute. Mr Parker Gilbert, (Agent General for Re paration payments), in a report to the Allies at the close of the year, unequi vocally asserted that Germany was now sufficiently prosperous to be able to meet her obligations under the Davres scheme; and he should certainly be in a position to speak with authority on the question of Germany's present fi nancial condition. This report, how over, was received with resentment and indignation by the German public, and a Foreign Office official stated that Mr. Gilbert had ignored the fact that the Dawes plan had so f...

Light travels through vacuum at a speed of 186,325 miles a second. A light year is this figure multiplied by the number of se conds in a year.

VALUE OF PUBLICITY AMERICAN'S VIEWS EFFECTIVE FORMS OF ADVERTISING. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 18 January 1929

VALUE OF PUBLICITY AMERICAN'S VIEWS EFFECTIVE FORMS OF ADVERTISING. When I encounter the frank and friendly deference shown by the peo pie of Australia to some of our achievements in America, 1 felt often (says Frank H. Canada, American, writing ia 'Newspaper Xcws,' fciv-!- ney) that we receive -too much eredit from people who have done wonderful things themselves. Certainly no coun try in the world surpasses Australia in its cheerful optimism in the face of discouragements, in its fiue determina tion in the face of obstacles, or in its wonderful spirit of* eternal enterprise. If there is any' room for legitimate praise to flow from Australia toward America it may possibly be in the fact that in the United States we have re cognised a little earlier than Austra lia the immense constructive val-ie of publicity. I refer not only to the fr.-O newspaper comment that supports im portant public enterprises, but also to the great volume of paid publicity, wtich is the driving force of our ...

SMALL CRAFT CRUISING MOTOR BOAT'S OPEN SEA TRIP Some remarkable sea trips with com paratively small craft were undertaken from the English coast during 1928, the most noteworthy being that of the Hon. Jjrs. \ KtOr Bruce 's cross-drier el dasn from Dover to Calais with her little out-board craft, and the performances put up »J-y- one of the new ' * Brooke Seacars' acting as the official observa tion boat on that .occasion.

CHINESE TYPEWRITERS FOUR THOUSAND CHARACTERS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 18 January 1929

CHINESE TYPE^RITEfCS FOUR THOUSAND CHARACTERS A curious machine is a Chinese type writer, and few people know anything about its mechanism. The Chinese written language contains about 14,00(1 character^, too many for any typewrit er to manage. As most of these char acters are rarely used, however, 4000 make a good vocabulary. A machine writing about this number was in vented some time ago. Made by an American firm, it was first put into use in a college near Peking. No Keyboard. The mechanism is peculiar. A key board is out of the question, as it is impossible to build tho characters up piecemeal. They are, therefore, ar ranged on the face of a stereotyped wheel, about 2ft. in diameter in radii of the circle. The wheel is mounted horizontally, type fating downwards, while the homologous printed charac ters on the upper surface serve, to lo cate them. The radius carryiag the desired character must be brought in to the printing line. A simple line motion finder brings the paper to the...

MOTOR BOATING INCREASING POPULARITY SUPREMACY OF B2XTISH BOATS In matters nautical, fays an Ex change, Britain enjoys a position .of paramount and primary importance, and inherent in all tho sons of Britain, is the love of tho sea. It is hardly a matter for conjecture, therefore1, tfcn.t as a seafaring and se-igoing race there is no nation (hnt can rival successfully the British race, and whether in the grim matter »-i' warfare; the vitally im portant pursuit of cjiiimcrec; or in the relaxation of pleasure the water lias played no small pint in the {iuua]s of the Empire.

NORTHARTS MYSTERY » ? ? ? POLICE STILL BAFFLED Nortliam, January 17. The identity of the mysterious crea ture, which many people claim to have seen in th~e Avon fiivw, near the cen tral bridge, remains as obscure as ever. ? An inclination to treat the whole mat ter as a hoax: is discredited in face of the obvious conviction of the ^Inspector .of Police that he has seen a monster in the river, and his determination to make the. utmost efforts to capture it. Last night the police used a boat to cruise around the small islands in the river, in fcarch of the creature, and to night it is their intention to make a similar effort. Apparently the object of the htifct does not maKc itself evi dent .during the day» Duiing the recent by-election at Tavi .stock.
