R.S.L. CLUB NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947

R.S.L. CLUB NOTES If you are a member of the League, for heaven's sake support it. If it helps your fellows, and somo day may help you, in heaven's 7iame do something for it instead of waiting for the other chap to move. Speak well of your own show, don't run the club down, even if it has a weakness or two. Every other body has faults but their members do not advertise them — they work ?? to remove them — noth- ing gives you licence to be any different. An ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness. If you must criticise your own show outside, get outside and stay out. When you are no longer one of the fam ily you can damn it to your heart's content, but as long as you are in it do not traduce it or stab its officers in the back. Re nlember this always and you will be an asset to the club. At a committee meeting held last Tuesday night the allocation of blocks to be allotted to return ed soldiers was the main item on the agenda. It was decided that as there were only 14 blocks ...

RE-TREADED TYRES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947

RE-TREADED TYRES A Prices Regulation Order gazetted recently sets a new schedule of maximum prices for stock re-tread tyres. A stock re-tread is a second hand tyre which has been recapped or re-treaded and has not been used since. The Acting Commonwealth Prices Commissioner (Mr. H. E. Bishop) said the new schedule would not cause much variation in prices, the main object of the re vision being to simplify calcula tion of charges. Under the new formula charges were easily as certainable, whereas formerly cal culation had been a complicated procedure.

40-HOUR WEEK AND INCREASED COSTS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947

40-HOUR WEEK AND INCREASED COSTS It is certain that the introduc tion of the 40-hour week will in crease costs in some industries and will also result in increased prices. It is equally certain that the whole of the increased cost need not be passed on to consum ers. Some industries will be able to carry the whole of the additional costs whilst others will not be able to bear any of them. Be cause price increases will be neither general nor uniform it is not proposed to devise a formula for automatic price fixation. Ap plications should be made to the Deputy Prices Commissioner and his approval obtained before any price increases are brought into operation. Special sections have been es tablished in all Prices Branches to deal quickly with applications and it is not expected that there will be any undue delays. Traders are fully aware of the pressure that will be on the Prices Branch dur ing the next few months and they can help to avoid delay by, for warding complete information wi...
