WHY LAND TAXES SEEM HIGH Assessments Made Before Produce Prices Fell HOW APPEALS WAY BE MADE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
WHY LAND TAXES SEEM HIGH Assessments Made Before Produce Prices Fell HOW APPEALS WAY BE MADE The Commissioner of Taxes (Mr. Cornish), explaining yesterday why land assessments seemed to be high, said valuations were made just after the drought broke last ] year, when it seemed that produce prices would be high. He was replying to criticisms by farmers that valuations were too high He added that the prices of produce had to be considered when making val uations of land. Mr. Cornish said that no alterations to land tax assessments could be con sidered except by way of appeal to the department. He is anxious to encourage direct communications, and promises that sympathetic treatment will be given to those who regard the valuations as ex cessive. "There is no necessity," said Mr. Cornish, "for farmers to go to any expense in making these appeals." The procedure provides that the fanners shall state fully the reasons for appealing, and either post them to the Commissioner or interview th...

IF N.S.W. GUT AWAY FROM OTHER STATES "PUT RECEIVER IN," SAYS MR. LATHAM Could Be Sued for Interest Sydney, February 26. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
IF N.S.W. GUT AWAY FROM OTHER STATES "PUT RECEIVER IN," SAYS MR. LATHAM Could Be Sued for Interest Sydney, February 26. Many meetings were held in East Sydney to-night in preparation for the Federal by-election. The principal speakers were the leader of the Oppo- sition in the House of Representatives (Mr. Latham) and the New Sou:h Wales Premier (Mr. Lang). "Supposing Mr. Lang did cut away from the other States in his mad scheme, what could the Commonwealth do?" Mr. Latham said. "Interest on State loans is, of course, guaranteed by the Commonwealth," he continued, "and I would advise the Commonwealth to sue New South Wales if is defaulted. There would be no difficulty in getting a judgment from the High Court. I would suggest, that an apphcaaon be made to put a receiver into the public offices and collect the rail and other: revenue, to be used to pay the Interest; and other obligations. That would be] only my first string; I have two others, which I will not mention now."

"KEEP TO WHEAT" Professor Perkins' Advice to Farmers EXPECTS 3/- BUSHEL NEXT HARVEST Lyndoch, February 26. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
"KEEP TO WHEAT" Professor Perkins' Advice to Farmers EXPECTS 3/- BUSHEL NEXT HARVEST Lyndoch, February 26. The Director of Agriculture (Pro- fesor A.J. Perkins) told farmers to-day that he doubted whether, on present prices, better returns could be obtained from side lines than from a good wheat crop. He ex pected the price to be 3/ a bushel for the next harvest, and more for the following one. Professor Perkins was speaking at, the local agricultural conference, his remarks being prompted by the follow ing question:— "In view of the unstable position M the wheat industry, is it desirable for I wheat-growers of South Australia and Australia to decrease the area of cereals and concentrate on side lines likely to yield some profit?" Land Suitable for Wheat : The Director stated that America ' was, perhaps, in a position to reduce production by putting the land to other uses. The wheat-growing lands of Australia were for the most part suit able chiefly for cereal production. If any far...

CRICKET POINTS ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
CRICKET POINTS ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS M.V. Morris, Caltowie, writes:—Then has been some discussion here concerning a run scored in a cricket match in New South. Wales. A slow bowler was bowling Into the wind. His deliveries were off the wicket, and. after conferring with each other, the batsmen, when he delivered the next ball, ran, reaching their creases be fore the wlcketkeeper received the ball. If that run was placd In the scoring book, how would it be entered? Answer—There Is, of course, no provision In the scoring book for such a "run." T*e only answer to the question is that the action on the part of the batsmen was not cricket, and no umpire should have allowed it to have taken place. Must Break Wicket With Ball in Hand j "Spin Bowler" asks:—Tbe batsman hits' the ball to a fieldsman and attempts to run; but while his partner is running to wards the striker's wicket, the fieldsman throws che ball to the wlcfcetkeeper, who as he gathers the ball, knocks the wicket down with...
Bowlers Should Make Most of Height [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
Bowlers Should Make Most of Height The young bowler should always en- deavor to bring the arm over as high as possible and so bring into employ- ment every inch of his height. This means that the ball will strike the pitch at a more acute angle than if he delivered it with the arm in a lower position. If delivered wife a lower arm-swing, the tendency is for the ball to fceep lower, and tiie batsman finds it easier to play. Ability to make the ball rise sharply from the pitch is a valuable asset £o r a bowler to possess. Be can vary his deliveries by swinging his arm farther away from his head—more of a round arm action—which alters the angle of Sight and trill also probable make tbe ball behave in a different manner when in the air. Another useful trick Is to use the full width of the bowling crease. By bowl ing the ball from different positions the batsman may be caused to mis judge its flight and direction. I propose to deal with the interest ing subject of break bowling in my nex...
Bowling Off the Wicket is Bad Fault [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
Bowling Off the Wicket is Bad Fault Many bowlers are guilty of a bad fault in bowling off the wicket, es- pecially when a new batsman comes in. By so doing they actually play that man in. because he is not forced to play the balls that will not hit the wicket. Similarly, to bowl off the wicket in an attempt to restrict the scoring is a mistaken idea. Balls pitched on the wicket are forced away with a certain amount of risk, whereas those not heading direct for the stumps are placed through gaps in the field much more easily and with less risk. The bowler's first consideration should be to attack and to force the batsman into errors. Never allow the in-fieldsmen to be out so far that they cannot cut off the single when a new man comes in, or. indeed, at any stage of his innings. Singles, as I have already pointed out. are most annoy ing to the bowler. If the batsman is of the hitting type, see that there is a man in such a position that he can cut off his pet boundary strokes, but ne...

E.R. HUTTON BEST STURT BATSMAN Bowling Not Impressive LAYCOCK TAKES MOST WICKETS [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931
E.R. HUTTON BEST STURT BATSMAN Bowling Not Impressive LAYCOCK TAKES MOST WICKETS It is generally conceded that Start possesses one of the best bat- ting sides in the district cricket competition, but the team has failed to play Up to expectations. The bowling is not strong: and lacks the sting which would be Infused into it by a good fast bowler or reliable wicket-getter of another type. E. R. Hutton, the country importa tion, has developed into the most con sistent batsman in the side and he Heads the aggregate and actual aver ages, although V. Y. Richardson and A li. Bradshaw, with two innings each, are ahead ol him in the list. Hutton has received solid support from the Walsh brothers and F. K. Gould, but apart from these four batsmen no Start player has exceeded 200 runs for the season so far. G Habich's accurate length gives him the best bowling figures, although H. Laycock nas taken most wickets. E E. Dutton presses Habich closely for the honor of best bowler, and beyond these...
