POINTS FROM LETTERS [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931

POINTS FROM LETTERS Religions Kites at Funerals From "Disgusted," Bowden:—At the Labor Exchange on Tuesday it was , disclosed that a man living at the Ex- ' hibition camp had died, and was buried : at West-terrace Cemetery on Monday.! ' A number of the unemployed marched !to the cemetery to see their comrade I buried. Someone was there to per- . I form the last religious rite at the ] ! grave, but there was no service read. 1 and I understood many of the men j around the grave were disappointed.; ; When it was announced tha: the Eng- : i lishman who was drowned in the Tor-; rens would be buried on Tuesday after noon, one man proposed that no burial service should be conducted: but I am glad to say that another man voiced: his convictions, and moved an amend-1 ment that the deceased comrade be' accorded religious rites. This was car- ; ried by a large majority. Imagine the; feeling of the parents and friends in i England had the lad been buried with | out being accorded the last rite...

CIVIL SERVICES PREFERENCE FOR QUALIFICATIONS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931

CIVIL SERVICES PREFERENCE FOR QUALIFICA TIONS To the Editor Sir,—The stress of the present poli- tical atmosphere has shown that the Governments of the day have had to fall back upon the financial experts, both in and out of Uie service. Com monwealth and State. The especial aim of the Labor Party is the en couragement of the higher education of £he youth of the country, as they clearly see that education is at the back of a nation's advancement, aud that expert knowledge, especially hi com merce and economics, will be in tne future the foundation of successful government. The key is in the hands of the present administrators, and it is advisable they should give encourage ment to the your,2 man of ability in the CMI Service. To some limited extent this is done in South Australia, but in the Commonwealth service the old bug bear of seniority independent of ability is predominant, and is the reverse of inducement to the young man of educa tional qualifications, to remain or join the ...

PLIGHT OF FARMERS DISABILITIES OF EYRE PENINSULA To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931

PLIGHT OF FARMERS DISABILITIES OF EYRE PENINSULA To the Editor Sir—In giving evidence at Port Lin- coln before the Federal Public Accounts Committee, Mr. C. R. Doudy—when it was suggested to him by a member of suggested by of the committee that the Interest burden bore heavily on the farmers—said, "No,' not over here; the land is cheap." I; am glad to see from reports published! later that practical farmers have con-1 tradicted Mr. Doudy and put the Com- ' mission right on this matter. From a' lifelong experience on Eyre Peninsula as a farmer, I can confidently say that high interest and Government taxation are tbe greatest burden we have to! bear. Farmers are paying 7S to 8 per cent, on overdrafts, and the annual in terest bill is more than the total pro-, cceds of the farms, leaving nothing to! pay rates, taxes, working expenses, or! living costs. It is a dreadful position. No recovery is possible under existing conditions. If the principal is ever to be paid off we must have inte...

WORLD'S WORST PLACES EXPERIENCES IN ARIZONA To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931

WORLD'S WORST PLACES EXPERIENCES IN ARIZONA To the Editor Sir—Honduras may be "the worst country in the world," but there are localities in other parts which almost equal it Whilst in the U.S.A. (prior to the world war). I found my way down into Arizona, and for a time nas employed by a large copper mining company at Clifton and Morenzi, in that State. The mining was done by Mexi cans, whites being employed only in the more responsible positions. On my first Sunday in Morenzi, then a town of about 4,000 inhabitants, foot separate murders were committed. Further, the priest of the Roman Catholic church, having said or done something to offend some of the Mexican people his house was blown up whilst he was hi it, but he came out unscathed. A week or so later, about 2 am, tbe company's hotel, hi which I was boarding, snook on its foundations, and on going out to see the cause, we found that the church ?in which the priest was then sleeping) had been blown up. Luckily for aim, he was sl...

FARMERS' DISABILITIES "DECEPTIONS By FEDERAL GOVERNMENT" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931

FARMERS' DISABILITIES "DECEPTIONS By FEDERAL GOVERNMENT" To the Editor Sir-Mr. H. J. Cadd, State President of the S.A. Wheatgrowers' Freedom As- sociation, is deserving of more loyal support from his fellow fanners, and also business men. for the ngnt he put up against the compulsory wheat pool. Had it not been for the timely efforts of Messrs. Cadd, Kitto, Chapman, and a few others, our freedom as farmers would have been taken from us, and our great wheat industry would now be in toe dutches of a gang of irresponsible bunglers. It has been stated that 90 per cent, of the farmers of this State are not In a position to carry on then operations un.ess they receive assist ance. They cannot procure super-! phosphate for another crap un less they pay cash with order, and. If compelled to pay their taxes, or even a part, they will not have the money to expend In that direction. Thousands are at present receiving the dole, and the numbers are increasing each week.

PARTY POIJTICS "SECTIONAL ACTIVITIES MUST GO" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931

PARTY POIJTICS "SECTIONAL ACTIVITIES MUST GO" To the Editor Sir—Mr. W. G. Duncan evidently has not fully considered the forces that are to-day operating to bring about national disaster, both to ourselves and the other portions of the British Empire.- or he would realise the utter impossibility of party platforms or sectional political activities, important though these may have been In normal times, to cope with the present situation. The pernicious doctrine of Com munism is sweeping the whole fabric of civilisation to the brink of destruc tion. The late Ferrar Fenton. deal ing with the anti-God compaign of the French Revolution, revealed the work of disintegrating influences that might stand perfectly (except for names and dates) for tbe anti-God campaign of Russia to-day. All thinking people will agree that then the -world was saved and restored to its normal tranquillity by the faith and strength of the Anglo- Saxon race. It must be the faith and strength of the .snme-race Co-da...

JURIES AND MAJORITY VERDICTS DO THEY PROMOTE JUSTICE? -t To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931

JURIES AND MAJORITY VERDICTS DO THEY PROMOTE JUSTICE? -t To the Editor Sir—The late Attorney-General, Mr. Homburg, was responsible for several law reforms of a far-reaching nature. Among them was an alteration to per- mit a majority verdict by a jury. The measure was hotly opposed by both Mr. Denny and his colleague, as well as other members of tbe party to which they belonged. The late Minister, at the time, said:— "It is true that the Jury system has been In operation for centuries, that It has been hallowed by time.-and done excep tional service in the administration of Justice; but, then, all ancient methods and everything hallowed by time must sooner or later again come under re view. If we were never to proceed to reform on the ground that old things were dearly held, we should not make much progress. It was true that throughout the British Empire unani mous verdicts were the rule, but that was no reason why it should continue. If something better could be found." It is well t...

WAGES AND RATIONS PLEA FOR WOMAN WORKERS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931

WAGES AND RATIONS PLEA FOR WOMAN WORKERS To the Editor Sir—It is stated that the unemployed who are on rations will retain the wages earned toy them under the Federal re lief scheme to purchase clothing. &c This is fair; but what about women workers? Are we to be refused aid, as usual? My husband has been unem ployed for one year and eight months, and I have worked to keep things go ing. He applied to the local council for work, and filled in an application, but was Informed that they did not think it of any use, as the work was for those on rations only. I think my children are entitled to boots and clothing, equally with "the children of those on rations. The Government might give some consideration to those Who try to keen off the rations I am, Sir, &c. WOMAN WORKER,

MURRAY BARRAGES IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT THE RIVER To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931

MURRAY BARRAGES IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT THE RIVER To the Editor Sir — In "The Advertiser" of February 11 appear speeches and comments on this question when the Murray Com- mission recently inspected the sites of the proposed barrages. A letter also appears from a Murray Bridge corre spondent to the effect "That the block- I ing of the Mundoo channel 13 years ago caused the river to burst over the banks of the reclaimed swamps 50 to CO miles upstream." This statement is contrary to facts. The Murray River from the time it leaves the South Australian border is confined to one stieam of about 300 yards wide. It con tinues so until it reaches Lake Alcxan tixina. and there it spreads over a sur face 15 miles across. On its way to the sea it pases between two lii Us. Point Siurt and Point McLeay. is estimated to be two miles wide. Continuing i: splits around various islands, including Hindmarsh. Mundoo, Towitcherie. and several others.

GENERAL ELECTION WANTED TO DEMONSTRATE NATION'S HONOR To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931

GENERAL ELECTION WANTED TO DEMONSTRATE NATION'S HONOR To the Editor Sir—The greatest need of our nation to-day Is a restoration of confidence in the honor and probity of the people of Australia. There is only one way to bring about such confidence, that is, to turn out of power and out of Parlia ment all men who have besmirched the name of Australia by proposing and i promising support to. dishonorable fin ancial schemes. A Coalition Government in the Fede ral Parliament would not bring about a return of confidence within our own borders nor overseas. Such a move would be regarded only as political i trickery, with a view of saving seats.' Tbe people should be given tbe oppor tunity to speak through the ballot box. The result of such a ballot would be evidence to the whole world of tbe de termination of the great body of Aus tralians to stand by the British prin ciple of honoring engagements. Tbe plain duty o f all Federal legisla tors who have the welfare of Australia at heart is t...
