'The Nemesis of Direct Action' [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 4 January 1929

The Nemesis of Direct A~-tf— f . ? . ? m-r ? . . Speaking at the Adelaide Eotarij Club recently, Principal Kick, of Parkin College, said that he believ ed that Democracy was in real danger f,r,m tlir. f nmhinoil assaults of Bolshev ism and Fascism- Democracy worked through representative institutions basf edon universal suffrage: it is permitted the utmost . .freedom of discussion and propaganda, but affirmed the doc trine of majority rule- This was not to say that majorities were always right: he was too often in a majority himself to believe -this. ' But majority, rule wa?, he thought, infinitely better than the 4granny of one man, even though it were called a 'benevolent despotism': i'-/ was infinitely better than the tyr anny of a ielique, even though, it might be called 'the rule of the best' or 'the dictatorship of the prdletariat.

THRILLS AND MARVELS THE BUSH OF MODERN LIFE Are we wlio live in these -lays of perpetual thrills and marvels really bet ter off than our forbears of the niueh maligne^l Victorian Agef In his beginning-of-term address to the students at 'the London fioyal Col lege of Music, Kensington, 'Sir Hugh Al len, the director, was doubtful about it. 'We arc living,' he said,- 'in strange and' exciting times, when magic — so common is it among us — has ceas ed to count; when on all hands marvels are everyday occurrences. ' j 'You who have been born into them can hardly realise that the world was ever without them. But 50 years ago some of us were living in what we now.

'I was twelve years old when, I first went to sea,' he said, 'but it was four years before that I had my first taste of a real gale. At that time I was with my mother, a widow, and the thatched cottage in which we lived was wrecked and blown away by a terrific gale, which played' havoc with the fist ing hamlets on our part of the coast of Scotland.

THE GRASSHOPPER CROP FEASTING ON PESTS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 4 January 1929

THE GRASSHOPPER CROP FEASTING ON PESTS Though China has had more than its share recently of revolution and fam ine,' it has (says the San Francisco 'Argonaut') not been entirely a stran ger- to good fortune. The silver lining to its -cloud. comes in news from Tient sin -that there has been ua unusual/ large crop of grasshoppers. If similar news canie from nearly any other part of the world', it would mean an additional famine cause, for grass hoppers are fatal to growing things. iJut China, accustomed to adversities from the skies, has learned to make the best of misfortune, even when it comes in the form of grasshoppers. In stead of waiting for the grasshoppers u- eat the ^crops, China eats thp grasshop pers. Thus what would be a plague in Kansas becomes a blessing in Tientsin; that is, from the standpoint .of the con sumer. The grasshoppers' views ou the subject would probably differ, but, after all, need nqt be considered, as they invite their own fate. , Nets are employed by the...

THE LAWS OF THE HAIR [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 4 January 1929

THE LAWS OF THE HAIR Twenty-five thousand hairdressers were summoned to the White City, London, in October. There the annual fair of their art was opened on the 13th, and there, we are assured (said the London 'Daily Telegraph' on that day) 'the fashion in hair dressing will be settled.' It has always been a mystery how these things eome to pass. We have wondered in vain how the ladies made up their minds in one year to bob; in another, to shingle;, in an other to crop their heads. The choice of the particular process, the moment and the manner of the variations, seem ed to be ;outside the realm of reason. That there arc very many women who have not yet discovered the fashion in hairdressing which suits them is pain fully obvious. But for the others, whoso faces have reached a modus vi vendi, an agreeable harmony, why should they^ want to try experiments no man could understand. . In the good days of old, Horace took it for certain that if a girl was careful in doing her hair, it wa...

AUSTRALIA GAME TO THE LAST BEATEN, BUT NOT DISGRACED Perth, Januarv 5. W. H. Ponsford, in his comments on to-day's play, says: — ; As was anticipated, the wicket this morning rolled out slow and easy. England steadily improved her position by stealing- runs, the result of clever running between wickets. The first check in the Englishmen's progress came with the dismissal of Jardine. However, Jardine had played his part and his retirement allovred Hammond to come in. This is England's policy, for Hammond is ideally suited to at tack the fowling and force England into a still sounder position. Sut cliffo's hundred was well de:-crvcd; m fact it Ls doubtful if ever a batsman deserved the honor more. At lunch ev erything pointed to an English victorv. The Australians never slacked.
