"STILL INFLATION" Business Men Aghast at Latest Move Representative Adelaide business men refused to recognise the Fede- ral Treasurer's latest financial proposals as anything but inflation in a new guise. Mr. E. H. Bakewell (Central Council of Employers) :—lt is only a variation of Mr. Theodore's previous inflation projects. He would be better advised to follow the suggestions of the expert committee which recommended reduc tions in public expenditure. Mr. H. E. VVinterbottom, secretary of the SJL Chamber of Manufactures:— The latest suggestion of the Federal Treasurer merely pute off the evil day. It is inflation, and at the end of 12 months it must be followed by a fur ther dose with the solution of the dif ficulty as far away as ever. Mr. C.

Was Received WOULD CANCEL WAR DEBTS Lord Rothermere Says British Press Not Hostile REPLIES TO MELBOURNE SPEECH LONDON, February 27.

Lord Rothennere added:—"A mis chievous statement, purporting to be made by the president of the National Council of Women, at a full meeting at the Melbourne Town Hall, has been circulated in London.

Australians Most Decide Inflation for Themselves LONDON, February 27. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
Australians Most Decide Inflation for Themselves LONDON, February 27. The "Daily Mail, in an editorial commenting on Lord Rothermere's message, said the hour was not re- mote when Australian products would receive that preference from Britain which, if granted, ten years ago, might have helped to avert tUe pre sent crisis. Referring to Lord Rothermere's ad vocacy of the cancellation of inter- Imperial war debts, the editorial adds, "Australia thus received a liabUity of £82,000,000, and received tangible proof of Britain's desire to aid her in an hour of difficulty. What further measures are desirable is a question for Australians themselves. It is for them to decide whether Mr. Scullin's ; proposed issue of £18,000,000 of notes are to be made without security. A' restricted, carefully adjusted, measure of inflation heiped France and Italy to overcome grave financial trouble, but on that bead Australians themselves j must be the best judges."
WAR DEBTS RESPONSIBLE FOR WORLD'S TROUBLES MR. HOLDEN ON EMPIRE TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
WAR DEBTS RESPONSIBLE FOR WORLD'S TROUBLES MR. HOLDEN ON EMPIRE TRADE "Although the benefits of Empire trade are generally recognised, I can- not see how England can cut out her relations with the Argentine and other countries in which she has large finan cial interests." said Mr. E. W. Holden in a lunch-hour address to commercial travellers yesterday. While In London, he said, he had i attended the London Chamber of Com-1 merce dinner, at which there was little mention of the dominions, but fre- j quent reference to booming trade withi the Argentine. Australia would have to be patient with Britain, who could not break away suddenly from her connections with South America. Bankers he met in England had every confidence in Australia a few months ago, but he was afraid that that feeling was being destroyed by procrastination. It was impossible for the position to; improve untitl the affairs of the coun try had been put on a sound business basis Australians complained of the high rates...

SWANS SAVE MAN'S LIFE Attract Policeman's Aid TORRENS RESCUE Swans on the Torrens Lake were probably the means of saving a man's life last night.

Nation, relieving ol ficer in charge at the Torrens Lake station, was walking along tiie southern! bank of the river near Elder Park about 7 o'clock when he saw that swans had congregated around a man in the1 varer. at that spot about eighteen inches deep. The constaoie saw ihat the man was alive, though apparently unable to do more than keep his head above the warer. The constable ob tained the assistance of Mr. E. Joiiy, of the boathouse, and tliey rowed to the scene. "For Gods sake fetch nelp." the man cried as they arrived. He was Mi. Walter Francis Snow, of Alberton. Suffering from shock and exposure, he was taken to the Adelaide Hospital, and admitted to Flinders Ward.
