MR. LANG 'TURNED DOWN" NOT WANTED MELBOURNE Sydney, February 25. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
MR. LANG 'TURNED DOWN" NOT WANTED MELBOURNE Sydney, February 25. Although officially denied, it is known that a letter has been re- ceived by the State Executive of the A.L.P. from the Victorian branch of that body stating; that neither the policy of the Premier (Mr. Lang:) nor his presence is de sirable in Melbourne. It was stated to-night that the rumors that Mr. Lang intended to con fluct a campaign in other States to form a Commonwealth-wide Lang policy organisation, which, would en dorse candidates in the nest general election, were groundless. In moder ate Labor circles, it is believed that the rumors were issued by the State A-L-P. in the form of propaganda in an endeavour to whip rebellious New South Wales members in the Federal Parliament into submission. Officials of the State A-L.P. state that, in addition to the Assistant Minister sf Industry (Mr. Beasleyj, there will be two breakaways from the Federal Cabinet in support of the Lang plan.

WHAT ABOUT THE MONEY? Baths' Lessee Speaks from Experience [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
WHAT ABOUT THE MONEY? Baths' Lessee Speaks from Experience These baths were built in 1860. on land vested in the corporation for the purpose, and in 1883 they were re built at a cost of £14,000. In reconstruction in 1910-11 the council spent £9,000. and the baths were then up-to-date. Swimming pools throughout the world have been im ! proved since then, and better conveni- j ences provided. Four years ago I visited the other States, and, on my return, made a business offer to the council. A scheme was drawn up by council officers, providing for longer baths, improved facilities, sun-bathing accommodation, and water treatment plant. Some preliminary work was done during the investigation. The estimated cost was about £14,000—much more than the same scheme would cost to-day—and the proposal was turned down. Nothing has been neglected, you see. It is all a matter i ' of business." Health Officer's Inspection Regarding water treatment, Mr. Bastard said that for the past three years the ...
