NATIONAL NOVEL. A Wonderful Background. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

NATIONAL NOVEL. A Wonderful Background. Australia possesses a wonderful back- ground for a great national novel. That opinion was expressed last night by Mr. Firmin M'Kinnon, in his final lecturett.e from station 4QG, on the development of Australian fiction. He had previously explained that by the term "national novel " he meant a novel embodying the mysterious per- sonality of the people. After referring to several outstand- ing novels, particularly to "A House is Built," portraying the character of the old quartermaster, he said that Australia possessed the material for great fiction, and mentioned Went- worth as a subject for a keen analyti- cal study of Australian personality, revealing, as he did, so many interest- ing traits of character. Mr. M'Kinnon concluded by expressing the belief that great Australian fiction would bo produced if novelists were given the support they deserved.

SCOUT FUND. Expansion of Movement. During recent weeks the public of Brisbane, and, in fact, of Queensland, have heard much of the aims of the Boy Scout movement, in so far as character traifning and good citizen- ship is concerned. The needs, more particularly with regard to expansion, have been especially stressed, and the association appeals to all who have not yet subscribed to the Sir Leslie Wilson Fund, and who are in a-posi- tion to do so, to send something along to make this expansion possible.

AM ENGLISH NIGHT. DRAMA AND HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

AM ENGLISH NIGHT. DRAMA AND HUMOUK. Many facilities for drama and humour were convincingly used In the Evening of English Dramatic Ait at the rooms c( the Brisbane branch of the Royal Society of St. George, Empire Chambers, Insi night. The presentation was conducted by the society, mid arranged and directed by Miss Barbara Sisley. Miss Sisley's gift for production enabled her to surmount with Ingenuity the difficulties of impro- vised stage arrangements. Atmospheric detail was admirably observed, and the dressing faithful to period. Tlie audience wero manifestly appreciative. Miss Sisley recited Kipling's "The Look- ing Glass," and "The Glory of the Gar- den." with her accustomed Insight and authority. There was uniform dramatic strength In two scenes from "Burnaby Budge" (Misses Gwen Campbell and Gwen Harrison, and Messrs. Tom M'Mlun. and Jack Cover). With delicious gusto, Miss Edith Tighe realised the Dicken slan humour In the monologue, "Mrs. Lirrlper's Lodgings." For her assumpt...

"DRIVEN BY DEVIL." Democracy Attacked. LOWERING INFLUENCE. MELBOURNE, August 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

"DRIVEN BY DEVIL." Democracy Attacked. -» LOWERING INFLUENCE. MELBOURNE, August 30. An attack on what he called "the definitely lowering influence of democ- racy on the community," was made by the chairman of the Church of Eng- land Boys' Societies in Australia (Rev. R. G. Nichols) in a remarkable out- burst" during an address to the Church of England Synod at Bendigo to-day. "There was a time," he said, "when Jack was nat as good as his master, but democracy has levelled the highest down to the lowest. If you get people who will not give deference to author- ity, how are you going to raise the people? "The biggest curse of democracy is the incapacity of parents. Parents are here to give their children a better chance than they had, but when it comes to spiritual things they side-step their duty. Don't you see Roosevelt driving his people against the econo- mic law, and, believe me, to the devil. There is inequality everywhere and democracy is dragging us down. The enemy lies in the...

PRICES FALL. GOLD-MINING SCRIP. ADELAIDE REACTION. ADELAIDE, August 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

PRICES FALL. GOLD-MINING SCRIP. ADELAIDE REACTION. ADELAIDE, August 30. On the Adelaide Stock Exchange to- day reactions again occurred in the values of the gold-mining companies' scrip. Under persistent selling pres- sure in moderately heavy trading. 75,000 shares changed hands, compared with 90,000 on Tuesday, and 150,000 on Monday. The overseas quotations were mostly weaker and consequently brokers Were prepared to accept reduced rates. Sell- ing orders from London also affected the market, and a cable message from New York that President Roosevelt had lifted the embargo on gold to permit the selling of newly-mined meta! at the higher world prices caused some uncertainty. There were fluctuations again in local dealings, 23 stocks falling and only nine appreciating.

FINE GESTURE. CATHEDRAL FUND. WARWICK EXAMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933

FINE GESTURE. CATHEDRAL FUND. WARWICK EXAMPLE. A splendid gesture of affection for the late Archbishop Sharp has been made by the Warwick parish, and it is fitting that the fund for St. John's Cathedral, where Archbishop Sharp has presided so often, and with such dignity, should benefit as the outcome of this expression of love. Eight con- tributions to the fund were received yesterday, totalling £10/10/6, and it was the wish of the donors that the amounts, varying from £2/2/6 to £1/1/, should be placed to the credit of the Cathedral Fund in lieu of being utilised for the purchase of floral tributes at the funeral of the late Archbishop. While expressive of the love and affection of the Warwick parish for the spiritual head, of the Church in Queensland, the forwarding of these amounts clearly demonstrated that country residents are imbued with the importance of helping the fund, and in doing this, probably no better way could be employed for honouring the memory of the late Archbish...

COMBAT RODENTS PRODUCE STORES. SUCCESS OF MEASURES Returns to hand indicated that the action taken by the proprie- tors of produce stores to combat the rat menace were proving suc- cessful, the chief inspector (Mr.» R. A. Fraser) says in a report to the Brisbane City Council. In 1928. he explained," a drive for rats was made upon ' the produce .«tores, and in five centres 33i0 rats were destroyed. In the succeeding four years the total number of rats caught from five stores was 1221, and this year tile total from an equal number of stores was 269. This pleasing result, it was stated, was due to the adoption of effective measures of co-operation ' between the merchants and the department. The three principal measures had been the building out of the rats, poisoning, and the keeping of cats upon the premises under conditions which tended to cul- tivate the rat-killing habit, some of the persons in charge of the stores lind even resorted lo a scheme of en- closing the cats in suitable ...
