COATS OF ARMS Similarity In Design SYDNEY AND PORT ADELAIDE [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
COATS OF ARMS Similarity In Design SYDNEY AND PORT ADELAIDE Striking s.imilarity is noticed when the coat of n.rms of Sydney and that of Port Adelaide are compared. In each the supporters of the shield are an old-time sailor and an aborigine, while a ship in full sail takes a prominent position in both. The Sydney design embodies the arms of Viscount Sydney, after whom the city was named, and is evidently more recent than the Port Adelaide ,one. for it also contains the arms of Sir Thomas Hughes, who was in office when the title of Lord Mayor was con Sferred on the Sydney dignitary. Port Adelaide has had its design since 1856, when the city was incor porated. The local motto is a Latin one, Haud Pluribus Impar, the transla tion of which is "Not inferior to many," while Sydney has selected, "I take, but I surrender," evidently hav ing reference to the fact that the English party of Captain Cook took possession of the country from the aborigines, but that England later surrendered the...

ONE AIR FORCE Navy's Objections Met CABINET ADOPTS PROPOSALS LONDON, August 2. [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
ONE AIR FORGE Navy's Objections Met CABINET ADOPTS PROPOSALS (REUTER'S.) LONDON, August 2. A White Paper has been published containing the recommendations of the National and Imperial Defence Commit tee on the relations of the navy and air force, which, in the words of the sub-committee, presided over by Earl Balfour, has given rise to "a 'somewhat acute controversy." The sub-committee, after sifting the claims of the rival forces and the pre sent system of co-operation as regards the fleet air arm, does not think a complete severance is possible. It reco-'mended that air officers be appointed to the Naval War Staff, and that the relations between the Admi ralty and the Air Ministry be defined. These recommendations may be re garded as a compromise. A drastic re organirsation of the Imperial Defence Committee is recommended to provide that Dominions' MIinisters may be sum moned as members of the Cabinet The committee rejects the proposal for the control or amalga.rnation of the thre...
TWO YEARS IN ARCTIC British Party Marooned FOOD RAN OUT LAST YEAR (PUBLISHED IN "THE TIMES.") LONDON, August 1. [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
TWO YEARS IN ARCTIC British Party Marooned FOOD RAN OUT LAST YEAR (PUBLISHED IN "THE TIMES.") LONDON, August 1. In a letter to "The Times" a director of the British Wright Company appeals for funds to send a ship to the rescue of Mr. Crawford, three white men, and some Eskimos who have been marooned at Wrangel Island for the past two years. The party was sent north at the ex pense of Stenanssons, the explorer, to hold the island until Great Britain de cided whether it would be retained as part of the Empire. Supplies must have given out last year. It is expected the men have since existed by hunting. The Wright Company has voted £500 towards the fund. Wrangel Land is an island in the Arc tic Ocean, lying north of the eastern extremity of Asia. It was sighted by Sir Henry Kellett in 1849, rediscovered by the American De Long in 1867, who namrned it after Baron Ferdinand von .Wrangel (Russian Arctic.explorer, 1821 23), and explored by the American ex pedition of 1881.

Numerous interviews and deputations which had waited upon the Postnmaster General, his secretary, the new Board ofi Commissioners. and other administra tive heads played an important part, and were really more valuable in a sense from the officers' point of view than the uonterence itself.
