INFLUENZA EPIDEMIC. Victoria Now Suffering. MELBOURNE, August 30. It is estimated that in the city proper one adult in 20 is suffering from the epidemic of Influenza. City shops, Government departments, the police force, tramways and railways, telephone exchange, and hospitals all report that unusually large numbers of employees are away with influenza. Fortunately the germ is not virulent. School attendances have fallen off considerably in the metropolitan area. One of the worst epidemics of sickness for many years is sweeping through the Geelong schools. More than 850 children were absent from ' nine State schools to-day. A mild form of in- fluenza and severe colds were the principal causes of non-attendance.

POLICY SCRAPPED. Reply to Country Party. CANBERRA. August 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

POLICY SCRAPPED. Reply to Country Party. CANBERRA. August 30. The claim that the Country Party, having scrapped Its election policy, now wants the "united Australia Party to follow its lead, is made in the official rejoinder issued on behalf of the Government to-day to the critic- ism made by the Country Party of the answer given by the Prime Minis- ter (Mr. J. A. Lyons) to a deputation in Sydney recently on the subject of the tariff. The statement says that the Lyons Government has done exactly what Dr. Earle, Page, in his policy speech, nromised to do-refer the investiga- tion to the Tariff Board to ascertain if the industries were efficient and economic enough to warrant a tariff protection. Mr. Lyons describes as insulting the suggestion by Mr. R. J. Hawkes, chair- man of the joint committee for Tariff Revision, that the Government should reverse its election pledge and reduce all tariffs to the 1921-28 level.

WRINKLES AND BULGES.

RESURGAM! NIGHT-LONG VIGIL. CATHEDRAL SCENE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

RESURGAM! NIGHT-LONG VIGIL. CATHEDRAL SCENE. The Cathedral chancel lay in the shadowecl calm of a gr"at peace . . . Outside its walls the tides of traf- fic waxed and waned, but here was a holy stillness-a sanctuary where one might meditate a space and fare forth into the\ world again, strengthened and comforted, with souls easier for unspoken »prayer . . . The robed figures by the casket stood like carven statues in tlie dim light of the solitary taper-priests in steadfast, 'ceaseless vigil that seemed to symbolise a calm certitude, a faith beyond the \earthly dreams of human frailtv . . .1 Archltravei and apse, have and aisle, were plunger^ in darkness. Only the eagle wings i of the lectern gleamed with a burnished splendour among the shadows that! seeirled to lay in pools on the stone* flags before the great pulpit, but a, soft radiance filtered through the luminous windows and lingered in the cloistered gloom of chancel and choir loft, As If silent-footed angels Through tl.o dim...

Australia's Defence. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

Australia's Defence. The naval correspondent of the "Morning Post," while refusing to agree to the description of the cruisers Australia and Can- berra as either out of date or "miserable," says that it is no use blinking the fact that the present Australian navy is of little use for the defence.of a vast continent, and that the only effective1 defence would be minefields and ocean- going submarines, enabling a strong and distant patrol to be maintained. The Minister of Defence has promised that the question of Australia's defences will be seriously considered. Sooner or later preparations for the adequate defence of the Com- monwealth must be made. There is much to be done ; for the defences have been allowed to fall away to an unsafe degree. And the people of Australia should realise that the kind of defence that will be needed in any war in the future will not be such as can be improvised in a day or so. The hint given by the naval correspondent whom we have quoted is very valuab...

Tell-tale Hands. War Paint on Finger Tips. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

Tell'tale Hands* War Paint on Finger Tips* NOT for many moons have feminine hands been so pink tipped as at present, but In the main they are not the palo beauties of whteh the poet sang, In fact women's hands for generations have been performing their natural func- tions, and those Who care for exquisite grooming regard them rather as troublesome appendages that rapidly get red and rough. These evils were glossed over when tho friendly tan powder was in vogue, but now that the feminine atmosphere has returned to fashions and the pink tip is being assiduously cultivated the bright young people must go back to the time when woman was dainty from head to toe, and produce the "pale hands." Gold-tipped nails are the choice of Leonora Corbett, a popular British actress. It is an ill-wind that blows nobody any good, and in some ways the new mode is a boon, because it teaches the modern girl that, instead of depend- ing upon a last-minute touch, she must really cultivate her beauty.

BRIGHT-HUED WOOL. Many Uses Outlined. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

BRIGHT-HUED WOOL. Many Uses Outlined. Ones upon a time the word wool- lens conjured up a vision strictly util- ! itanan of garments only to be en- dured when the temperature was such as to render warmth a necessity at J any price. Decorative effects, when pro- duced at all. were seldom light and I pleasing, but nowadays there Is hardly any limit to the attractive articles which may be made in the home irom wool. At a demonstration arranged by Mrs. W. J. Gall, in connection with the Use More Wool Campaign, and given yesterday to members of the metropolitan branch of the Queensland Country Women's Association at the I rest room, the possibilities of a sewing machine and rug wool evoked enthus- iastic admiration from the gathering. Rugs, teacosies, and handbags made on a burlap backing lent themselves to varied decorative effects. Other materials may be used for the founda- tion, and the process suggested many possibilities for further ingenious use of bright-hued wools. Cushion covers...

A Second Chamber. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

A Second Chamber. The Government's proposal to amend the State's Constitution so as to provide that no second, Chamber of Parliament shall be established without the consent of the electors through a referendum has much more to commend it than the opportunity it might give to the present Ministerial party to indulge a taste for irony. Appar- ently the Ministerial argument is that the referendum instrument, which was successfully used in New South Wales to prevent the abolition of a second Legislative Chamber there, might be applied by a Queensland Labour Govern- ment to prevent the restoration of a bicameral system here. But irony often has a double edge., There would be no difficulty in making out a thoroughly good case for requiring the approval of the electors by means of a plebis- cite to such a fundamental consti- tutional change as the substitution of a two-Chamber legislature for a single-Chamber legislature, or vice versa; and it could be pre- sented with persuasive eloquenc...

Wool Organisation. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

Wool Organisation. Although the prices obtained at the opening of the Sydney wool sales on Monday were . hopeful they were not so bright as some persons think; and in a letter which we publish in this issue Mr. Harold Sims, of Moree (N.S.W.), contends that there is little ground for complacency about the wool position. He quotes' a report issued by a well-known wool-broking house of Antwerp last January declaring that at that time there was a Continental trade activity described as "an out- standing wool consumption"; yet in Mareil, 1933, the market slumped to its lowest recorded level. The case presented by Mr. Sims is that in one of the world's most acute shortages of wool tex- tiles the organised buying side of the business was apparently "well in the know." In reply to Mr. Sims the Graziers' Association says that the growers were represented in London by an able expert who kept them posted fully with the situation of the world's wool market. Actually Mr. Sims is pleading for a b...

"Export of Good Will. MELBOURNE, August 30. Stating that the 100th marriage be- tween Australian girls and Dutchmen engaged in the Australian-East Indies trade had been celebrated recently, the Consul for the Netherlands (Lt. Col. F. H. Wright), in the course oi a luncheon address to-day to the Queenslander^' Association of Victoria, said that Dutch sea captains, engin- eers, and others oí the personnel of the Royal Packet Navigation Com- pany seemed to be supplementing the commercial relations of the */wo countries -with matrimonial lies. These marriages formed a sort of "in- visible export of good .will" between the two countries.
