DECENTRALIZATION OF INDUSTRY [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
DECENTRALIZA TION OF INDUS TRY There was more than a local note in the request of the deputation which waited upon the Premier at Kapunda at the week end, and asked for some amelioration of the railway rates affecting engineering works there. The principle of decentralisation was involved. If it is advantageous that the establishment of great industries should not be confined to the capital city-and no one who understands the opera tion of the economic laws which gov ern the progress of a State can have any doubt on the subject-then every possible effort should be made to foster and encourage any industries which may be established or promoted in districts away from the capital. Capital cities are, of course, esse ntial, and, no matter how widely sepa rated the industries or activities of a State may be, some portion of the business, financial or otherwise, must flow through the capital. It is well that the capital city should flourish and be prosperous, because it reflects the cond...

The GARDEN HOUR THE DAFFODIL Our Loveliest Spring Bulb [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
THE DAFFODIL Our Loveliest Spring Bulb (By "Reliable.") South Australia for many years lagged behind in the culture of the loveliest and most refined of our spring bulbs, the daffodil. The word daffodil has come down to us from past ages, and breathes of romance. Please do not call them daffs, and so rob the flower of its dignified name. Unfortunately the bad habit of giving flowers and plants ridiculous abbre viated names has become common in Australia. GROWING POPUIARIrY. TWhere there were only a. few keen 5rowprs ten years ago there are now dozens of bardeners who are making a spei:alty of tne daffodil. One of the keenest growers here has been Mr. L. R. Scammell, the well known solicitor, Mr. F. C. Scammell, who many years ago had the finest collection in this State. His keenness i importing up-to-date varieties in DAFFODIL INCOMP ARABILIS SECTION TRL;MPET DAFFODIL spired numbers of gardeners to take up the daffodil. It is pleasing to note that the Royal Horticultural Society thi...
ROUND THE BEEHIVE Peace [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
ROUND T-HE BEEHIVE Peace Old vases orn a shelf, A mantlepiece, grey locks, Mother by the fire knitting Father socks. Photcgraphs, old curtains, Outside the sob - Of dripping rain. The kettle Singing on the hob. Shadows creeping to the coriers, White moths, a lamp; Old boots drying by the fire, Muddy; damp. Red crumbling logs and coals, And father smoking; Xo words, no sound, only the clock, Hours stroking. A fleeing spider cross the hearth, A crackling log; Head on paws, looking up at mother, Mother's dog. A snore, a. pipe gone out, Outside still raining; Mother with her glasses on, Lamplight waning. Father, aged, peaceful, sleeping, Mother sitting, Thinking, smiling, loving, dreaming, Knitting, knitting. -Hal Gye.
GLENELG. [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
GLENELG. In their match against Norwood on Saturday Glenelg may be without the services of Jack Hanley, their captain. He is suffering from a bad ankle. He was unable to train last night. The injury was received in the match against Sturt, when Riley, coming down from a mark, accidentally landed on Hanley's ankle. In the event of Hanley standing down George Ross will probably be given another run. He has beien playing well for the B. and would take Jack Ean ley's place in the pack. Spry and Moore will comprise the opening ruck in that event. Glenelg supporters are pleased with the form shown by Charlie Barnett at centre half back, where he has played the last two matches. Previously he held a position in the half forward line. Roy Armfleld will not be able to play for about three weeks as the result of an injury to an eye received in a scrim mage during the last quarter against Sturt. After the match his ey?e was painful, and it was necessary to have it attended to by Dr. Wells. The...

STAGE AND SHADOW-SHOW TROUBLES OF JOSEPH Can't Lose Rudolph English Trip Next Year [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
TA (By "Thespian.")DS TROUBLES OF JOSEP1 Can't Lose Rudolph - English Trip Next Year Joe Brennan, now appearing at the Majestic, is famous for two things. One is that he is one of the few comedians who can cmake the conduc tor of the orchestra laugh every time he hears him. The other is that his friends insist on calling him Joe and his wife insists equally as emphatically on calling him Joseph. He acquires fame in this direction because he keeps friendly with both factions. But that is only one of his troubles, for, like many another who hides his grief behind grease-paint, he has his feelings. In this case they are tinged with sadness, for he has worked hard and been tdrned down by the very people he ties to please. It is his songs. He was here with ~Humphrey. Bishop the year before last at the Garden Theatre, and several of his numbers became so Ipopular that the audience wanted them each week. That was bad enough. But when he knew he was to come to Adelaide again he said to hims...
