FOOD AND CLOTHING. Request By Unemployed Men. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
FOOD AND CLOTHING. Request By Unemployed Men. 'Introduced by the Rev. H, M, Whel ler, representatives of the men living in hostels for the unemployed waited on the Minister for Labour and Indus- try (Mr. M. P. Hynes) yesterday. They asked for an improvement in the san- itary conditions at the hostels, a more liberal scale of rations, and a more generous issue of boots and blankets. Mr. Hynes, on the question of im- proved sanitation, referred the depu- tation to the Home Secretary. Much as he would like to assist them with more rations and more boots and blankets he regretted that the funds at his disposal prohibited him granting the request.

STOP DUMPING OF FLOUR. Board Urged to Act. TOOWOOMBA, August 30. At tho last meeting of the pres- ent Wheat Board to-day Mr. B. C. C. Kirkcgaard said that one of the first functions of the new board should be to prevent tlie dumping of flour from New South Wales into Queensland. In New Soutli Wales, he said, there was a tax of 30s a ton on flour used for consumption within that State, but the tax did not apply to flour sent beyond the State, The effect was that the Near south Wales mil- lers were protected against dumping by Victorian millers, while, on chc other hand, New South Wales could send flour to Queensland at prices not affected by the tax. The effect was that New South Wales flour was protected within the State boundaries, So long as flour was permitted to be dumped into Queens- land from New South Wales, he said, the growers in this State would lose about 7%d a bushel. The chairman (Mr. E. A. Thomas) said that this and other questions had been carefully watched by the man...

AN OLD WORLD NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
AN OLD WORLD NOTE. "Chintz frocks are something new at a wedding, though, indeed, lovely ladies in the days of Queen Anne wore English chintz in the ballroom as a, protest against Paris modes," declares a British fashion authority. M' Nicolette BInyon, daughter of the poet Laurence Binyon, met romance while working among the prints and draw- ings of the British Museum, and pos- sibly some of these treasures inspired tha designs for her bridesmaids' dresses. Glazed chintz in a soft floral pattern on a parchment background was used for the frocks of her six attendants at the wedding, with sleeves and fichus of white, the latter held b-r oll-fashloned cameo brooches. Mr. Basil Gray, the bridegroom, was also working in the department, keeping prints and drawings, when he met his bride. Miss Binyon wore her mother's wedding dress of thick cream satin, I with a Brussels lace veil.

WOMEN'S WAGES. Mrs. Longman's Attitude. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
WOMEN'S WAGES. Mrs. Longman's Attitude. "Mr. Brigden seems to think that I had forgotten that a man is expect- ed to maintain a wife," Mrs. Irene Longman said yesterday in replying to Mr. J. B. Brigden's comment on her statement regarding women's wages to a meeting of the Queens- land Citizenship League. "I realise that any system of child endowment would have to take into consideration the upkeep of a wife and children," Mrs. Longman continued, "but that does does not necessarily mean that the basic wage should include that amount. A great deal depends on what system is adopted. Not all sys- tems are based on the amount that a single, or any other, man must be paid on the assumption that he keeps a wife, I do not see that it would be any worsa for a woman to be paid the basic wage than a single man, who may never marry, because if a woman should marry she would al- ways help towards the upkeep of a home, especially if she is paid a decent wage beforehand. Women do contribute someth...

Marks, tho New South Wales all-rounder, accept the proposition made to him by the Queensland Cricket Association to becomo playing coach, the State Sheffield Shield side would bo strengthened considerably, for, although Marks Is not a great all-rounder meas- ured by past standards, he lias plenty of cricketing ability In him.
