CAMPAIGN IN SAAR. Hitler's Plans. FRENCH WATCHING CLOSELY. (Australian Press Association.) PARIS, August 26. France is watching closely two monster Nazi demonstrations at Bingen and Niederwald, as they are regarded as Herr Hitler's first public move in a campaign to win back the Saar Basin for Germany at the plebiscite In 1935. The French newspapers declare that a vast organisation has been estab- | lished to attract the inhabitants to ceremonies designed to symbolise the Saar's return to the bosom of Ger- mania, a gigantic statue of which stands on a hill in Niederwald. Sixty special trains and 2000 motor coaches, partly subsidised from Nazi secret funds, are conveying the inhabitants of Saarbrücken to the celebrations. Swastika badges, which are being sold at two francs apiece, are being worn I by 10,000 Nazi members in the Saar, i and their example is being largely fol- lowed. i The French allege that Nazi terror- ism has already been begun in the Saar.

PLAYED ITS PART. Redcliffe and Relief. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
PLAYED ITS PART. Redcliffe and Relief. Discussing the statement by the works executive of the Brisbane City . Council (Alderman E. Lanham) that "Brisbane is carrying the relief scheme for Queensland," Alderman J. B. Dunn, chairman of the works committee of the Redcliffe Town Council, said it was quite probable that the Redcliffe figures of 140 such workers to a popu- lation of approximately 2500, compared more than favourably with the Bris I bane figures on the same basis. Alder- man Dunn considered that not more than 50 of the Redcliffe relief workers were bona fide local residents. In Brisbane there was a drop in the expenditure of £714,680 in 1928 to £245, 890 in 1932 equal io a decrease of 65 per cent. In Redcliffe for the same , period, said Alderman Dunn, there was a rise of 35 per cent., indicating that not only had this small municipality done its full share in the relief of un- ' employment, but it had definitely not contributed to unemployment. Every man who was employed b...

There is probably nothing more irri- tating to the woman who does her own housework than the redness, roughness, and soreness caused by constantly having her hands in water. Sometimes it may only be an em- barrassment, but more often It is a painful experience, especially in cold weather. This can all be avoided by keeping a bottle of Mirpil handy in the kitchen and a few times daily especially after washing up, and al- ways after laundry work-rubbing a small quantity well into both hands.
