RELIGION AND LIFE Seeking Goodness Without God [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

I RELIGION AND UFE I Seeking Goodness Without God By The Rev. Alan Walker "I'M as good as the man who goes to church. I can't see what prayers and worship and parsons have to do with living decently. A ''man can be decent without, religion." We have all heard or perhaps made this kind of statement. It raises far more serious issues than meet the eye. It is really raising the problem of the rela- tions of morals to religion; of whether a man can be good with- out God. In this business of comparing the man who goes to church with the man who stays away, one or fwo simple things need examina- tion. Often we take the unfair course of choosing the best example of the non-church-going group and compare him with one of the worst found among professing Christians. Mere attendance at worship does not necessarily mean that a man is opening his life to the power of God. A man has been known to go to church to meet a girl who sings in the choir. We can visit an art gallery rçgularly without bec...

Week On 'Change Market Stands Up To Wall Street [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

Week On 'Change Market Stands Up To Wall Street CLOSING tone of the mar- ket on Friday was steady after a week of shock reports from New York. Despite consistent scare head- lines in many newspapers, inves- tors refused to be stampeded. On the week, the Sydney index for ordinary shares fell by only 0.93 point to 180.71. Turnover was moderate to light. Buyers had adopted a cauti- ous "wait-and-see" p'olicy by week's end, but there was little necessity to revise limits as sellers displayed no marked anxiety to unload. The only market leader to show any noticeable reaction was B.H.P., which finished the week 2/3 lower at 56/9. Tooth was shaded and Henry Jones also sold down but all other key industrials displayed a firm tone. A.C.I., British Tobacco and C.S.R. actu- ally strengthened. - Banks and pastoral shares were relatively unchanged, but the in- dex for retail stores dropped by more than two points during the period. Small interest was taken in shipping shares, as for some time pa...

FINANCIAL REVIEW What Really Is The Matter BY THE FINANCE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

I FINANCIAL REVIEWH What Really Is The Matter With Production? BY THE FINANCÉ EDITOR Almost everyone now admits, if only to himself, that living standards are low because too few goods are being produced. But even if every working Australian pulled up his socks, as he should, there would still be large deficiencies in the things that consumers need. The fact is that Australia is going through a phase of industrial devel- opment that is straining the resources of 'labour and materials. The economy is seriously distorted, and goods are not being produced in the right proportions to raise living standards, as yet. > ' "TVTOT so bad" may be the f^ typical Australian ver- dict on the production chart published in adjoining columns. "But any delusion of great achievement is rather shattered by a little further .scrutiny. It is true that all but two pro- ducts showed increases in the year ended June, 1948, from the level of the last war year; and all but three were above, the pre-war le...

Song Hits Earn Dollars For Britain [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949

Song Hits Earn Dollars For Britain By WEBSTER FAWCETT . When the American Federation of Musicians banned new recordings, sales of British records in America jumped in value from £57 a year to £25,000. By the end of last year 2,000,000 British records were v ' selling each month in America. THE music goes round and round and it crosses the Atlantic. Such is the cumbrous current wise- crack in London's Tin Pan Alley, i the Charing Cross Road. Composers are »tinkling out new 'tunes and publishers are dusting off forgotten successes in quest of dollars. Caesar Pctrillo, president of the American Federation of Musicians, presented Britain with millions of dollaïs when he called his year-old strike to ban new recordings through / out the vast American music field from Broadway to Holly- wood. British songs and British singers are booming in- juke- boxes and record stores as never before. .VTVREE in' the Meadow" is A only one of the recent English song-hits that have smitten American ears ...
