OBITUARY Mr. Amos Bickley, who died at Wel- land on Saturday, was 74 years of age. He was born at Burra, and at the age of three years went to Wallaroo, where he resided until about 10 years ago. For many years he was engaged in farming with his parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. John Bickley, pioneers in the Tickera district.

He instituted many of the movements of that body, and was largely responsible for the erection of the fine hall.

KANCHENJUNGA STILL DEFIES CLIMBERS German Party Fails 2,000 Feet From Summit CALCUTTA, October 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931
KANCHENJUNGA STILL DEFIES CLIMBERS German Party Fails 2,000 Feet From Summit CALCUTTA, October 5. Kancheajunga, the world's second highest mountain, which has defied half a dozen attempts to climb it in the last three years, has defeated Dr. Paul Bauer's German expedition. The peak, 28,146 feet high, towers above the fastnesses of the Himalayas, and had already cost the expedition two lives, for on August 20 Herr Scha ier and a coolie were hurled down a crevasse. The other members of the party saw the tragedy, and buried the victims in a rock vault at 17,000 feet. The "Calcutta. Statesman" says the expedition got to within 2.000 feet of the summit before being checked by an unexpected 500 ft. wall of rock ice, which it was impossible to scale, owing to the great danger of avalanches. Six Germans and four porters took part hi the final attack on the summit. They encountered heavy snowstorms and avalanches.

Lord Stonehaven Praises Australian Spirit LONDON, October 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931
Lord Stonehaven Praises Australian Spirit LONDON, October 5. The former Governor-General of Australia (Lord Stonehaven). in a lively address to the Authors' club on Im-&lt;*> perial problems, emphasised that there was a new orientation of policy in Aus tralia, born of the realisation by the average man and woman that Aus tralia, in recent years, had been living in a fools' paradise. Englishmen could only pray that the same realisation would come there. The particular type of difficulty Britain was facing was most pronounced in those parts of the Empire where Parliament had taken the biggesi hand in interfering with the lives of the people. "When I returned, from Australia in December, he said, "it was perfectly obvious that we were following the straight down road which landed Aus tralia in a mess, but she has shown : amwztng capacity for pulling herself to gether."
MR. LANG DRAWS THE LINE Trades Hall Furious Sydney, October 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931
MR. LANG DRAWS THE LINE Trades Hall Furious Sydney, October 6. The Trades Hall is in revolt against the drastic steps taken by the Depart-&lt;*> ment of Labor and Industry to prevent dole frauds. Before applicants can get relief, a form is to be signed and witnessed by an alderman, a minister of religion, a sergeant of police, a town clerk or a postmaster. Justices of the peace, members of Parliament,* rvi! ixoioxi sec retaries are not allowed to vouch for the bona fides of applicants for the dole. The new form has raised a storm of protest, particularly at the Trades Hall, and a heresy hunt has begun, to dis cover who was responsible for the eli mination of union officials. Until now, union officials have been able to bestow a benefit on unemployed members by signing their applications for relief, and so have been able to pacify demands for relief from benefit funds.
