THE GALVANIC GIRL. Her Very Action Is Spasmodic. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912

THE GALVANIC GHBL. Hor Vory Action Is Spasmodic. I do not mean to imply by " galvanic " that this typo of girl is necessarily shock ing, but I know of no other tevm that bo adoquatoly dcscribcs her peeulisir charaa tovistics. ^ Tho particular galvanic girl whom for a brief—a very brief—while I honoured with my acquaintance, was called Tottie, which was short for—for . Upon my word, I havo quite forgotten what it was short for. Anyhow, like Girtie, the giggl ing girl, sho ropresonted a type, raror to day, perhaps, than in my youth, but still to bo found in sufficiently large numbers. Tho galvanic girl passes through life by means of a series of jerks. All her movomonts are convulsive. As sho walks, lior head wags up and down, as if it were attached to her neck by means of n swivel. Her hand-shake is a thing to be dreaded, because sho accompanies it with bodily contortions which suggost that her whole anatomy is called upon to assist in tho operation.

THE GREAT ILLUSION. How Disarmament and Peace Will Eventually Como. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912

THE GREAT ILLUSION. How Disarmament and Poaco "Will Even tually Como. By Norman Angell, In "Answers." I want in tlits article to show why it is impossible by military conquest to seize the trade of a people; why the Idea that a nation becomes richer whon it annexes territory is a fal3e one, and why it would bo impossible for another nation to take our colonies from us, and, Anally, what course we should take to give practical effect to these truths in solving this mo mentous problem of war and armaments. A newspaper writer once said: "Ger man competition may compel ua to fight in order to confine that competition with in reasonable limits." Supposing that wo had destroyed the German Navy, and had Germany absolutely at our mercy to morrow, how could we limit in any way Germany's commercial competition. That competition arises from the fact that sixty-live millions of people are willing to work hard, efficiently, cheaply. But even whon we had connuerod thorn they would still continue ...

A WI'XCOMU It AIX. Oil Thursday evening a thunderstorm passed over the town and for a time the rain came down in torrents.

The reports to hand are Uah 282 points, Boyd 220, Burrawang 100, Gra'vlin 180, Weelcng 128, Wongajong 280, Eu gowra 60 and Parkes 50.

CRICKET GROUND CONTINENTAL [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912

CIUOKET GROUND CONTINENTAL • The continental in aid of the funds of the Forbes Cricket Club eventuated on the cricket ground on Tuesday night, and was a generally successful function. From the weather standpoint, the night was decidedly x>leasant, and a large num ber turned out to take advantage of the entertainment provided by the club. It is complained by the orga nisers of the function, however, that a goodly number of people from whom more honorable conduct might well have been expected man aged to secure entrance to the ground by means other than through the gate, and thus they avoided contribution to the funds, which naturally suffered. It is surprising the lengths to which some otherwise honest peopio will resort in order to obtain cheap en tertainment.

Letters to the Editor. The Editor does not hold himself re sponsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. ELECTIONS AND PROPORT IONAL VOTING. To the Editor. Sir,—Tlie elections in South Aus tralia furnish further evidence of the neeil for proportional voting. In that State there are twelve elector utes for the legislative Assembly. One elects five members, two clock four members, and nine elect three members; total forty. In one elect orate only was a truly representat ive result secured. A small major ity in the Torrcns electorate favor ed the Labor xiarty and elected three out of five men returned. In all the other electorates the major ity in turn monopolised the repre sentation and disfranchised the mi nority. Here are examples; Stanley elected three Labor men, with an average of 0,012 votes. The three Liberals averaged 0,054 votes and their supporters got no representa tion. In Victoria and Albert the Liberals elected three men with an average of 0,010 votes, while the thr...
