The Official Receiver (Mr. A. V. Richardson) had reported that the liabilities of the bankrupt were £6.102 13/2 and his assets 2/1. "The business career of this applicant shows substantially a succession of flnanrtai disasters," ssid his Honor in delivering judgment. "The conclusion I have come to Is that, whatever might have been the applicant's technical r)nnHflr?t&lt;'v"i. he is not in any degree competent to look after the economic side of business. For that reason, especially having regard to his finan cial obligations, I think he should be prevented from launching any further schemes for a substantial period." Sir. H. A.

ARGENTINA AND AUSTRALIA Where They Differ MONEY AT 5 PER CENT. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931
ARGENTINA AND AUSTRALIA Where They Differ MONEY AT 5 PER CENT. Interesting comments on the situation in Argentina as it compares with that in Aus- are contained in a letter tralia, received in Adelaide from Lon don yesterday by a banker. "The Argentine," says the writer, "like Australia, has spent money reck lessly, has a large foreign indebtedness and Is mainly dependent on primary' products to provide the necessary funds I for the service of this Indebtedness. There is. however, a vast difference I between the lndebtedne-a of the v?vo I countries, as. although a very large amount of British capita] Is invested in the Argentine, the bulk of it is in railways and industrial undertakings, while as regards Australia, the bulk cf the British investments are in Aus tralian Government securities. It will be aoparent that the difference is c very vital cne. as in the event, of. say, an Argentine railway not earning suf ficient to pay interest or dividends to the British shareholders, it i...

LIVES OF CHRIST Many Famous Books [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931
LIVES OF CHRIST Many Famous Books The new German book. The Messiah. Jesus, and John the Baptist," by Dr. Robert Eisler is likely, because of unorthodox attitude and vigorous treatment, to arouse more discussion^ .';? than any religious biography since* Giovanni Paplni'6 "Life of Christ." Countless attempts have been made .^ to tell the full story of the most re- ' markable life ever lived: but for the general reader only a few of them have conveyed that touch of genius which 3 brings the past to life. ". Great Biblical scholars have stated roundly that there is "no really ade- _ quate material" for a biography of Christ. They point out that the Church itself only concerned itself with the story of the twelve months which were devoted to teaching, and that other sources are meagre indeed. The gospels " themselves are In no sense formal bio graphies, and only St. Luke's frequent mention of feast days t??-? It easy to fit the accounts into the framework at V time.
