THE BAKING TRADE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
THE BAKING TRADE. TO THE EDITOR OP THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir,-The bread baking industry at the present time in Queensland is in a depressed condition, like many more industries, and all precautions must be taken that the position of the industry does not develop into a worse stage. A Day Baking Bill is supposed -to go through the House, and the Bakers' Union Is shortly to appear before the court for an 8 o'clock start. That late hour of starting, to my thinking, would bring the Industry to complete ruin. The public demand for hot bread is intense, and the solution would be a .6 o'clock start, to say the least. No employee in these days of depression wants a ring on his nose and to be led around by others. The carter is waiting hours for his bread, and he is just the man that knows what the public wants. The carter should be a very valuable man to the court in giv- ing evidence. The carter is a great asset to any master baker, and I am s-xe that every master baker is aware of that fact. ...

AUSTRALIA AND JAPAN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
AUSTRALIA AND JAPAN. To THE EDITOB OP THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir,-As a Queenslander I think Mr. K. Mutsuda is justified In drawing the attention of the readers of the Courier Mail to the disturbing elements that are taking place in Australia and are working against his country, Japan. Japan is, and always has been, friendly towards Australia, and as she Is 3 large buyer of our wheat and wool it Is only fair that we take a proportion of her manufactured goods In return. Australians In publlo life, and a sec- tion of the Australian Press, often ex- press views concerning friendly nations without first considering whether their statements are likely to damage Aus- tralian credit abroad. Australia is in need of fresh markets for her surplus produce. Visitors from Japan and China inform us that Australia has a wonderful opportunity for increasing her exports to Eastern countries, but that can -only be done by remaining on friendly terms with our coloured neighbours. In attempting to keep Aust...
TRAFFIC HAZARDS. Much To Be Done. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
TRAFFIC HAZARDS. Much To Be Done. "Much has been done to eliminate source: of danger, but there is still much that can be done to Improve traffic conditions in the metropolitan area." This remark was made yesterday by the secretary of the Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (Mr. A. E. Jones), when commenting on an article In "The Courier-Mail," which suggested the desirability of a comprehensive sur- vey of traffic danger points through- out Brisbane. "The R.A.C.Q. is continually urging the authorities to carry out work which will reduce existing traffic dangers and a great deal has been done in recent I years," said Mr. Jones. "This work Involves a good deal of expenditure, and cannot be done all at once. Some of this expenditure is caused through the lack-of co-ordination amongst tne various authorities, such, for Instance, as the erection of poles. How often do we find that a corner is cut off at a nominal cost, but that it is also necessary to shift a pole which carries many wir...
THE FISH BOARD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
THE FISH BOARD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir.-Much has been written during the past few weeks in connection with the proposed Fish Board. I should like to offer a few suggestions, and at the same time to make known some facts that may help to remedy the trouble. .In the first place, several fishermen tell me that the failure of the present organisation is due in a great measure to the fishermen themselves. They have a Fishermen's Co-operation, and whilst a good many of them are loyal to the Co-operation quite a number are not. Instead of sending their full catch to the market for sale they sell it privately to some retailer. This retailer having secured his supply at a price he considers suitable is con- sequently not a buyer in the open market to any great extent. When this happens and a big buyer is not bidding the price, of course, immedi- ately "flops," the only sufferers being the fishermen who are playing the game and sending the whole of their catch to the markets. ...

SOME YESTERDAYS. In the Eighty Slump. PRELUDE TO INDUSTRIAL CRISIS. What were the factors that preceded, led up to, and caused the great industrial turmoil of the nineties ? These factors are discussed in the following article. By G. E. BUNNING. The East Is dead, and the West Is done, and again our course Iles thus: South-east by Fate and the Rising Sun, where the Three Kings wait for us. -Harry Lawson. The definite breaklng-up of the great eighty drought in June and July, 1P"6, throrghout Queensland and New South Wales was heralded with joy, and there was a feeling of de- lirious relief throughout the eastern colonies. An unaccountable feeling of apprehension had filtered through the minds of city and bush people alike of enormous yet intangible difficulties which would have to be overcome difficulties which were imperceptible, as it were, and, therefore, such as would have to be left to time to evolve and solve. A sense of uncertainty had pervaded everything, had overwhelmed every...

GIRL ATTACKED. SAVAGE KANGAROO. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
GIRL ATTACKED. SAVAGE KANGAROO. Deliberate attacks by kangaroos on human beings are exceedingly rare in the bush, as indicated by statements made by representative pastoralists commenting on a case in Western Aus- tralia in which It was reported that a farmer had been attacked by a six foot-high marsupial. An incident a few years ago, some- what similar in character, was brought under notice yesterday by the Director of the Queensland Museum (Mr. H. A. Longman), who produced a cutting from The Courier of November 30,1927, in which it was related that a little girl, Gladys Bird, while riding on a bicycle, was savagely attacked by a kangaroo on the Gayndah Road, three miles from Maryborough. The animal knocked the -girl off her bicycle and grappled with her as she lay on the ground. She put out her arms to pro- tect herself, and caught hold of the kangaroo's front paws, but the animal struck at her with its back paws, tearing her stockings and clothes and inflicting severe scratches o...
