Listen to the Bands [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

Listen to the Bands After a vacation of six months the State-owned jazz bands resume regular practice on Friday, and, as the familiar song "We Promise You" has been una- nimously chosen as the test number for the championship competition to be held in March, 1924, more than the usual interest is attached to the pre- liminary performances. In accordance with precedent, how ever, practice will not be restricted to that particular number. For instance, it is known that the Liberal band, un- der the baton of the famous explorer, Sir Henry Barwell, will include "The Railway Wriggle," "South to North and Back Again," "How We Saved the Country," and "Spiking the Gunn" as harmony practice. It is not known if the lute will be included, as a bad rift made its appearance during recess, and although sent to the Union for repairs experts differ as to the success made of the job. Despite numerical disadvantage, it is known that the Labor band is particu- lary hopeful of again winning triennial ho...

ROUND THE BEEHIVE The Rain [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

ROUND THE BEEHIVE The Rain The Rain, the everlasting rain, It's dripping, dripping, dripping, And we're running, jumping, skip- ping, Over puddles, falling, tripping, And Willie gets a whipping When he goes out in the rain. Shall we see the sun again? The weather chart is teasing, We're muffled up and wheezing, We're coughing and we're sneezing, And the chemist thinks it's pleasing When we catch cold in the rain. Oh, the suffering and pain, Our boots are wet and sopping, In mud we're flopping, flopping, Mother says "When is it stopping? "It's preventing me from shopping, "And hubby's rather friendly to the rain." Will the council ever make a drain? Percy loves a fellow's daughter, And he cannot cross the water, So he's gone away and bought a Bomb or two to go and slaughter Blokes who never seem to guard against the rain. If we only could get home by tram or train. Father's bought a boat to row in; It's the only thing to go in, And to think things should be so in 1923—no place for fl...

Gripped by Water Snake, Clerk Tells of Narrow Escape ADELAIDE BEST OF ALL. [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

Gripped by Water Snake, Clerk Tells of Narrow Escape ADELAIDE BEST OF ALL. "I was swimming about in the water, not thinking of any danger, when I was suddenly attacked by a large snake. I felt its slimy, twisting body. I fought desperately with it. Twice I was dragged under, but, with a super- human effort, and, almost exhausted, freed myslef from the reptile's clutches, reptile's clutches, almost exhausted, and crawled from the water. I was badly bitten on my left arm just be- low the elbow. The prompt treat- ment I received quickly put me on the road to recovery." Mr. John James, clerk to the Ade- laide City Market, is far away from snakes now, but that experience will be with him to his last day. He was in the Royal Garrison Artillery in India at the time. Seized with the wanderlust early in life, Mr. James has visited more coun- tries than most men. His first sta- tion after joining the Artillery in Eng- land was Gibraltar, and from there he moved on to Karachi, in India. Hunt- ...

FOR SLEEPY EYES MR. FOX AND MR. GOBBLER [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

FOR SLEEPY EYES MR. FOX AND MR. GOBBLER "Tiger Cat did listen to Ned Dog." It was near Christmas time, and Mr. Fox was wondering if he would have the good luck to get a fat turkey for his dinner on that day. While he did not object to eating one on any day of the year, he knew it was time for him to get busy if he wished to feast on turkey-eating day. And that was the reason that Mr. Fox, as he crept around the barnyard of a big farm one night was looking about. Suddenly he came upon a big square box with a netting over the front of it. Inside was the largest turkey gob- bler that Mr. Fox had ever seen. He was so surprised that he exclaimed, "Well, well!" right out loud, and   awoke the fat gobbler. "What in the world are you doing inside this box?" inquired Mr. Fox.   "I am a prize bird. Can't you see that without asking such foolish ques- tions?" inquired Mr. Gobbler, strut-   ting as muh as he ould in such a small space. "Prize?" questioned ...

Seeking Cheaper Power Brown Coal or Water Flow EXPERTS DIFFER AS TO POSSIBILITIES [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

Seeking Cheaper Power Brown Coal or Water Flow EXPERTS DIFFER AS TO POSSIBILITIES Handicapped by high-priced coal, Adelaide needs some source of cheap power, whether it come from the hills or from brown coal. The subject is not one on which it is easy to obtain opinions from experts, but a few authorities have consented to give their views. Mr. W. G. T. Goodman, chief engineer and general manager of the Municipal Tramways Trust, says that the water supply here is so vari- able and unreliable that it would not warrant the enormous outlay neces- sary. "The rise and fall in our tides are also unsuitable to be utilised for   this purpose," he said. "The use of brown coal depends solely on the cost of getting it. If it be ex- pensive to mine it would be difficult to compete with the Maitland coal we are now using. At Morwell, in Victoria, they have enough coal in one square mile to last Victoria for the next 100 years. Morwell coal can be placed in the hoppers at under 2/6 a...

HUNGRY PRISONER COMPLAINS TO S.M. Pleading guilty to a charge of drun- kenness at the Port Adelaide Police Court this morning, George Harris was fined 15/ or three days' imprison- ment by Mr. G. W. Halcombe, S.M. Later he was charged with the lar- ceny of a sac coat, a pair of gloves, and a pocketbook, valued at £3 5/. Sub-Inspector Noblet, who prose- cuted, asked for a remand until Mon- day next, but Harris elected to be dealt with summarily. He complained that although locked up at 4 p.m. on Monday he had had nothing to eat since his arrest. The inspector said that under the regula- tions Harris was not entitled to a meal until this morning. Harris mentioned that he had cash and offered to buy food. The S.M.—Such a state of affairs does not sound right. The man must be fed, as in custody he could not get food for himself. The case was adjourned until this afternoon to enable the police to com- plete their enquiries. When the case was resumed this afternoon Sub-Inspector Noblett sa...

LANDLORD CLAIMS £490 Newspaper Alleges Extortion [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

LANDLORD CLAIMS £490 Newspaper Alleges Extortion The hearing was continued today before Mr. H. K. Paine, S.M., and six jurors of the claim brought by Maurice Bernstein, of Glenelg, against the Co-operative Printing and Publish- Company for £490 for alleged libel. Bernstein alleged that certain articles published in "The Daily Herald" about April 1, 1922, implied that he had used his position as a landlord to extort money from his tenants, and was an oppressive and unjust landlord. Further, that about April 15, 1922, the company had falsely and maliciously printed an article in which it was said that the complete exposure by "The Daily Herald" of the flagrant instances of rent-racking in Hanson Street had had a most salutary effect upon the individual, meaning Bernstein. Thomas James Matters, estate agent, said he thought, after wide experience, that landlords were honorable men. Speaking generally, they charged fair rents. He would not act for landlords who demanded unfair rentals. ...

TO FRIGHTEN HUSBAND Alleged Forged Telegram MELBOURNE, To-day. The excuse that she was trying to frighten her husband by having him interviewed by the police so that she might ascertain who was sending her anonymous letters was an admission alleged to have been made by Mrs. Lavinia Leishman in explaining her conduct in sending a telegram to her- self warning herself about the poisoned contents of a parcel. It is alleged that she led the police to believe that the parcel came from her husband or from her mother-in-law. The parcel contained chocolate cake into which strychnine had been in- jected, but she denied having sent it to herself. She made a wan figure when she ap- peared before Mr. Justice Macpharlan and jury at the Criminal Court to-day, charged with having wrongfully signed a telegram with the fictitious name of A. Blake. She pleaded not guilty. On April 3, it was explained by Mr. Dixson-Hearder, who appeared for the Crown, a clerk in the telegraph office found a telegram l...

Australian Dairy Council [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

Australian Dairy Council Many matters of interest to South Australian producers were dealt with at the conference of the Australian Dairy Council. Mr. E. H. Fromen, manager of the Dairy Produce Depart- ment of the South Australian Farmers' Co-operative Union, represented this State at the meeting. It was reported that the Minister of Customs had approved the council's re- commendation to reduce the standard for export butter from 82 to 80 per cent. butter fat and 16 per cent. moisture. This applies only to shipments of but- ter for countries where the 80 per cent. butter-fat standard now prevails. It will become operative in the coming export season.

Good Evening, Neighbors [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

Good Evening, Neighbors Good evening, neighbors— Here—we come neighboring, Cheerily, friendlily. Here—we can thresh out our puzzles of life: Here—we can wonder why, Here—we can laugh and sigh, Here—is the corner for all but—vain strife. Dear You—who read this column— First of all it is ours, not merely mine. A lot of you do not know me—yet. But I am sure a lot do. In more than ten years of writing to women I made lots of reader friends who were such wise women. Those of them that know that I am to be enabled to say a glad "Good evening" once a week, assure me they will be happier, even than I am, to link minds again. Life has wrought strange happeniugs in the last decade. It has brought years that have tried us, years that have divided us, years that have broken many of us. Yet probing underneath the surface storm, has proven the old story—that love receiveth and over- cometh all things. It has proven that the big abiding sympathy of our own understanding friends is the real joy and...

HOME PLOTS AND HOUSES SURVEYS DISCLOSE ERRORS Real Property Act at Fault AMENDMENTS NEEDED [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

HOME PLOTS AND HOUSES SURVEYS DISCLOSE ERRORS Real Property Act at Fault AMENDMENTS NEEDED Since 1910, when the Royal Commis- sion, which was appointed a year previously to enquire into   the workings of the Real Pro- perty Act, made its report, there have been intermittent efforts to have the recommendations put into force. The nearest approach to success was in November, 1910, when the Govern- ment introduced an Amending Bill, read it for the first time, and forgot it. Thirteen years have gone by and each one has seen the position regard- ing titles, and the errors in connection with them become more complicated. The first witness examined by the Royal Commission told of a 10-acre block that was one and a half acres short of the described title. This month a survey, preparatory to pur- chase, was made of a place at Torrens- ville and disclosed a shortage of four feet. OTHER STATES WISER.

GOOD ROADS AND BAD Blanchetown Punt Gone TODAY'S REGISTRATIONS [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

GOOD ROADS AND BAD Blanchetown Punt Gone TODAY'S REGISTRATIONS What is the general condition of the roads throughout the State?   That is a question that troubles the mind of everyone who drives a car, more especially that of those whose business takes them over long trips on roads that are likely to change their condition with the vagaries of the wea- ther. To meet the demand for information as to the general state of the roads, "The News" is inaugurating a road ser- vice, and is asking the co-operation of all those who know what it is to set out on a long trip without any difinite knowledge of what lies ahead of them. Plans have been made to gain ac- curate information as to the daily con- dition of all roads within a hundred miles of the city. In addition, motor- ists are asked to send reports to the paper whenever they find a particular stretch of road out- side that area to be in a bad state. If this co-operation is secured, it will mean that those driving for plea...

TAXPAYERS' ASSOCIATION Economy with Efficiency SAFEGUARDING THE PUBLIC [Newspaper Article] — News — 24 July 1923

TAXPAYERS' ASSOCIATION Economy with Efficiency SAFEGUARDING THE PUBLIC "We here are so accustomed to deal with the expenditure of millions that we apparently take little or no notice of the expenditure of a few hundred thousands." This remark made by a member of the House of Representatives contri- buted to impress upon a band of pro- minent South Australian citizens the necessity for an association to enable taxpayers to unite in protecting their interests, and by exercising an in- fluence in favor of economy with effi- ciency in all forms of Government to reduce the burden of taxation, restore stability in public finances, and so promote the welfare of the individual, the State, and the Commonwealth. It was thus that a non-political body known as the Taxpayers' Association of South Australia, with Mr. A. E. Clarkson as chairman and Mr. C. Harding Browne as secretary, came in- to existence. The originators of the association felt the truth of the statement of the Federal Treasurer ...
