"HOLD ON TO LAND" Advice of Prof. Perkins [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
"HOLD ON TO LAND" Advice of Prof. Perkins "Current prices for wheat cannot and do not meet costs of production. Nothing less than 4/ a bushel can do so in existing circumstances." said the Director of Agriculture (Professor Per- kins) yesterday. Nevertheless, he added, by the judi- cious use of sidelines and Common- wealth assistance until prices began to rise, the farmer should be able to hold on to his land and be prepared to take full advantage of the position when eventually prices became normal again. "Our farmers cannot give up wheat growing, notwithstanding the unremu- nerative prices. There is a world-wide demand for wheat, and, however low the price, it is among the few com- modities that can be exported to meet our commitments abroad.'' Main Aim It was not the time, he added, to &nbsp; look too closely into actual costs of &nbsp; production—which varied widely from district to district, season to season, and farm to farm—but rather to de- termine for the ti...

Bridge at Llandovery [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
Bridge at Llandovery What a difference it makes when a charity bridge party is held at a pri- &nbsp; vate residence instead of in a public hall! When Mrs. W. F. O. Grote, pre- &nbsp; sident of the Hackney Free Kinder- garten, suggested that the annual bridge in aid of the Kindergarten should be held at "Llandovery," Robe- terrace, Merdindie, there was an imme- diate demand for tables. The party took place last night. Although the ballroom could accommodate a large number, it was necessary to make use of the drawing-room and smoking- room as well. The sweet peas in every shade were a wonderful sight. They were arranged along the mantel- shelves and in every available corner. The flowering currant looked effective set in high vases. Iceland poppies and African marigolds farmed the decora- tive scheme in the ballroom. Mrs. Grote's little daughters Sheila and Fay &nbsp; sold sweets for the good of the cause. The committee of the Hackney Free Kindergarten includes...

State Parliament PROTEST AGAINST TARIFF Mr. Craigie's Motion Defeated For more than three hours yesterday the Assembly discussed the motion of Mr. Craigie (Single Tax), "That the present high tariff policy of Australia is detrimental to the best interest in the Commonwealth, particularly in re- lation to its agricultural, pastoral, and mining industries, inasmuch as it has the effect of increasing the cost of production and reducing the purchas- ing power of money, and is one of the main causes of unemployment; there- fore this House enters an emphatic protest against the continuance of the existing high Customs duties, and re- quests the Federal Government to bring about a substantial reduction at an early date; also to abolish the boun- ties, subsidies, and embargoes which give privileges to certain industries." Mr. Cameron (C.P.) said the tariff was being used to attempt to build up a false nationalism. The effect of the tariff on primary production was such that those industries...
CIVIL SERVICE CUTS Pressure on Commissioner Denied [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
CIVIL SERVICE CUTS Pressure on Commissioner Denied In reply to questions in the Assembly yesterday, the Premier (Mr. Hill) denied that any pressure had been brought to bear on either the Public Service Com- missioner or the Classification and Efficiency Board to induce it to reduce public servants' salaries unduly, as was suggested by an article in the "Public Service Review." Mr. Hill said the public service had been asked to take its share of reduc- tions in common with the people out- side the service, whose wages had been reduced by Arbitration Court decisions. The leader of'the Opposition (Mr. Butler)— Some public servants have had to take a reduction of 26 per cent. Mr. Hill—I believe that the basic wags has been lowered by about 26.3 per cent, in the last 12 months. I do not think the article reflects the feeling of the service. Civil servants realise that the State is in a serious financial position, and are not being called upon to make undue sacrifices. Mr. Butler—The Publ...

DRIED FRUIT PRICES Further Planting Not Recommended [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
DRIED FRUIT PRICES Further Planting Not Recommended Pointing out that £170,000 worth of Australian dried fruit had been sold in London this week. Mr. Laffer (Lib.) enquired in the Assembly yesterday whether the Government would con- sider opening up the Loveday irriga- tion area for settlement. The Premier (Mr. Hill) promised to bring the question under the notice of the Minister of Irrigation. Mr. Mclntosh (Lib.) asked if the satisfactory price received for the dried fruit was not due to the fact that the Californian pack totalled only 140,000 tons, compared with an average of 200,000 tons, the Smyrna pack only 24,000 instead of 60,000 tons, and that the Australian pack was far smaller than usual. He asked the Government to confer with the growers representa- tives before any further planting was done. The Commifisioner of Crown Lands &nbsp; (Mr. Richards) said the report submit- ted to the Director of Lands agreed with the recommendation made some time ago that no further ...

DISTRICT CRICKET ON SATURDAY Adelaide Has Strong Team PARRY GOES TO TASMANIA By "LONG-ON" The district cricket season. will begin on Saturday. Indi- cations point to Adelaide being the strongest team in the com- petition. Last season the South Australian Cricket Association tried the "straight- out" system of deciding the premier- ship, and, at the end of the programme, Glenelg had scored most points, thus winning its first premiership. Dissatisfied with that method, the association has decided to make an- other experiment, which is a compro- mise between the old system of play- ing semi-finals and the 1930-31 method. After each team has played the other nine once, the team at the head of the list, will play the club in third position; the second will play the fourth: the fifth will oppose the seventh; the sixth will meet the ninth; and the eighth team will play a match against the bottom team. The sea- son will then end with a series of matches in which the first team will play aga...
