NOT YET DONE WITH [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 6 October 1931

NOT YET DONE WITH Though long and seriously threatened by mechanisation, which is spreading throughout the world, like the prickly Dear and the rabbit in some of the eastern States, the horse has not yet seen ite day. Two or three years ago. It might have been thought that tte noblest of man's animal comrades was fast on the way to becoming an ana chronism, for then, as the represen tative of a leading firm of horse dealers in Adelaide has just reminded us. the progress of mechanical tran- j sport was such that very few horses were cold. It really seemed as though our equine friend was about to obtain a complete release from the servitude of the roads, and even from farm work to a large extent. But it does not look so today, when draught horses are everywhere in demand, and stallions in Victoria are fetching from 100 to 400 guineas, while South Australia, durmg the past twelve months, has found buyers in the West for nearly 2.000 draught horses. Not long ago. dis heartened breeders ...

The Advertiser ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1931 WASTE AND RETRENCHMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 6 October 1931

The Advertiser ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1931 WASTE AND RETRENCHMENT In normal times, the speech made by the Premier at a function at the Payneham School on Saturday would have excited no remark. A conscien- tious Minister of Education is quite naturally opposed to "an arbitrary cut in the education vote," and equally apt to issue a challenge to "those who desire the cut" to "show where any waste is occurring." Mr. HID, bow ever, is Treasurer first and Minister of Education afterwards; and this, per haps, is not the happiest possible .com bination of portfolios in ffr?*? prevailing circumstances. It is a combination to which we owe the fact that the whole scheme of Government economy nas seemed to revolve about the Education Department. Whenever the topic of reduced public expenditure is raised, the education vote is uppermost in men's minds; not because this is w* p only department in which retrenchment has been urged, or in which the major savings are looked for, but because t...

DESPAIR SETTLES ON BELIZE Industry Crippled, 2,000 Families Penniless LONDON, October 3. Telegraphing from Belize, the officer administrating the Government of British Honduras says dull despair has settled on the population, who tire appalled at the magnitude of the disas ter which has befallen them. The arrival of lorries from Jamaica has speeded up the clearing of the town. -Temporary shelters are arising from the ruins, but more than 2,370 families ate now deuendent on the Government for supplies of food and clothing. The seriousness of the disaster is ac centuated by the fact that almost the whole of the colony's industries are cen tralised in Belize, and heavy losses of property and material caused by the hurricane, coupled with the depressed state of the market, appears likely to have most serious effects upon the colony's finances. Six hundred and twenty-two deaths already have been registered, and the revised estimate of the total deaths is between 800 and 1,000.
