MAIN ROADS NEGLECTED, SAYS MR. GUNN Victorian System Favored [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
MAIN ROADS tEffLETEID, SAYS MRG UNN Victorian System Favored "When I announced the policy of the Labor Party in 1921," said 3Ir. Gunn, Leader of the Opposition, this morning, in amplification of his statement in the House yesterday regarding main roads. "I said that we fully realised that spe cial and immediate attention must be given to the reconstruction and main tenance of main roads. The difficulties which farmt-s in the inallee areas have to overcome, dragging their wheat long distances over tracks of sand, are a serious handicap to the proper cuitiva tion and expansion of the farm. "This problem of road construction and maintenance should be grappled with along scientific lines, adopting the best methods and material, and carry ing out the work systematically. Goodil roads are just as essential as railways, but unfortnuately we have not paid the attention to them that they deserve. The present system, which means di vided control and piecemeal methods of construction, does not...

YOU CANNOT AFFORD [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
YOU CANNOT AFFORD- You cannot afford to pay for second rate eggs when you are going to use them for cooking. A stale eCg is quite cacable of spoiling the texture of a cake or the flavor of an omelet. Better use fewer eggs and have them strictly fresh. You cannot afford to pay a low price for fruit because it has remained too long in the market. There is actual danger from eating stale fruit, and it Iquickly spoils, so that you actually pay as much for each piece of fruit as i f you bought the best quality. You cannot afford to buy tinned goods for a lower price because the covers of the cans are a little battered unless you are perfectly sure of your grocer. Sometimes canned goods car ried over from other seasons is offered for sale, but it is not an economy to buy because of tire chance of staleness. :Old canned goods, even though not actually bad, have an inferior flavor. You cannot afford to buy inferior beef for a beefsteak or tough mutton for lamb chops. But you can economise b...

WRAPS ARE IMPORTANT What To Wear and When [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
WRAPS ARE IMIPORTANT '-- ,? What To Wear and When There are still some women who con sider that by wearing a pretty frock they have done their duty, and proceed to cover it up with a wrap of unsur passed hideousness. An over-smart wrap with a sports suit or a tweed coat with an afternoon gown are sartorial crimes that cry to heaven for vengeance. The matter of wraps is always im portant, and in summer just a little difficult for the woman of small means. While recognising as her ideal the prin ciple of "ei ery frock its wrap,"' she probably find its practical application somewhat beyond her. Let her take the gifts the gods have sent her, and choose for the evening a reversible model, that in one of its aspects matches her latest gaowvn, and in the other "swears" with nothing. For her afternoon wrap, which must be a cloak, long and flowing, black or some neutral coloring will just meet the case, again bearing in mind the shades of her frocks. A travelling and motoring wrap always loo...

COURSING [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
COURSING The Curramulka Club will held its annual great "meet" during this week. It was to have been held a fortnight ago, but the effects of continuously heavy rain caused a postponement. In value and prestige this meeting of the Yorke Peninsula club ranks second only to the W'aterloo Cup, which greatly exceeds It in popularity. Everybody hopes Mr. Herb. Hosking will be sufficiently recovered from his recent attack of influenza to take the saddle as judge. Mr. HIosking pos resses, to an unrivalled extent, the con fidence of nominators. A good city contingent is certain to be present Mr. Jack Flannagan hoped to see the sport, but has his great jumper, Haoma, to entice him again to Melbourne.
