PREVENT USE OF LEAD IN PAINT. Restrictions to be Tightened. LEGISLATION FOR THE STATE PARLIAMENT. legislation to tighten the regulations regarding the use of lead in paint probably, will be introduced into Parliament shortly. This action is promis ed by the Home Secretary (Mr. E. M. Hanlon) following a recommendation by the Govern- ment Analyst, that, to combat lead poisoning amongst child- ren, the permitted proportion of soluble lead in paint should be reduced. The report of the Government Analyst (Mr. J. B. Henderson), which was presented to Parliament yester- day by the Premier (Mr. W. Forgan Smith), stated that, in view of the number of cases of lead poisoning in the community, especially among chil- dren, the advisability might be con- sidered of reducing the permitted pro- portion of soluble lead in paint from 5 per cent, to 2 per cent. It was dis- closed that of 141 samples of paiut scrapings taken by Government in- spectors from the veranda rails or other parts of houses wh...
TIVOLI THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
TIVOLI THEATRE. There have been thrillers before, but few like "Parachute Jumper," the air story sensation, with many dare- devil sequences, coming to the Tivoli to-morrow. Tnls stars Douglas Falr oanks, jim., with Bette Davis, Leo. Carrillo, and a special cast, and the cale is packed with swift action. Hazardous leaps from the skies, a dashing romance, and much light and breezy comedy all go into "Parachute Jumper," to make it the most enter- taining of this sort of picture screened for months. It will be accompanied by "The Warrior's Husband," which stars Elissa Landl in a new role. This gorgeous comedy presentation, which will keep the audiences roaring with laughter, is a satire on ancient Rome, when women fought and men did the housework. David Manners, Marjorie Rambeau, and a special cast are included. There is also to be "Rambling Round Radioland," a musical comedy, and "Nertsery Rhymes," a Metro-Goldwyn Mayer all-colour revue, together with Cinesound all-Australian review, F...

LONDON FASCIST FORTRESS. Rigid Discipline. BROWN HOUSE LINES FOLLOWED. The building in Chelsea occu- pied by Sir Oswald Mosley's Fas- cists is conducted on the lines of Herr Hitler's Brown House at Munich, and rigid discipline is maintained day and night. LONDON, August 29. In quaint contrast to the monster Nazi demonstration at Nuremberg is Sir Oswald Mosley's Fascist fortress in King's Road, Chelsea. Formerly Whiteland's Col- lege, the well- known women's college, the build- ing is now in the possession of the British Union of Fascists, and is run on the lines of Herr Hitler's Brown House in Munich, with a publishing depart- ment, Fascist pro- paganda, dormi- tories, mess room, Sir Oswald Mosley. and gymnasium. A rigid discipline is observed day and night, black shirted sentinels being always ready to guard the entrance. If a complaint is made against a member, he is im- mediately tried by court-martial, com- posed of three members. Sir Oswald Mosley also has his own secret servic...

VERY RELIABLE. MODERN MOTOR CYCLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
VERY RELIABLE. MODERN MOTOR CYCLE. mo-DAY far fewer motor cyclists are seen tinkering at the roadside than was the case even a couple of years ago. And those who are seen in trouble are, almost without exception, owners of elderly machines. This proves that the modern motor cycle is an exceptionally reliable machine. When trouble does occur it is gener- ally a case of some accessory coming loose or a frayed or corroded lighting cable. Even punctures, with modern tyres, and roads that are almost free from shoe-nails, are infrequent. When a puncture does occur the repair is quickly carried out, particularly on machines with an easily-operated hinged mudguard.

From My Letter Bag. All letters and stories must bear thename, addres, and age of sender &nbsp; clearly written, and should be ad dressed to "Sally Horner," "Courier" Oflice, Brisbane. Children are asked to state whether their verse and stories are their own unaided composition or not Only drawings done in Indian ink will be accepted for the drawing com- petitions.

VERY often I feel rather like the old woman who lived in a shoe, not because of "so many chil- dren," but because of "so many letters." Of course, the more letters I receive the happier I am, and the more fun I have, for they are all so nice and friendly, but the part about "not know- ing what to do" comes in the answer- ing of them all, for lack of space necessitates the shortest of answers to even lengthy letters, and sometimes my pen-friends ask if I am bored by their "long screeds."

BRUTAL ATTACK. LOADED PIPING USED. HOTELKEEPER'S ORDEAL. IPSWICH, August 30, A brutal attack was made on the licensee of the Central Hotel (Mr. S. E. Townend) early this morning when an intruder aimed two fierce blows at his head while he slept. An alarmed cry by the victim caused his assailant to escape without being seen. About 3 a.m. on Tuesday Mr. and Mrs. Townend, who sleep in a room overlooking both Nicholas-street and the Ipswich railway station, were dis- turbed by the creaking of the floor. They attributed the noises to rats. Their experience about 1.30 o'clock on Wednesday morning, however, has con- vinced them that it was the stealthy tread of the man while he planned his attack. It seems that the intruder climbed the railings at the back of the hotel to reach the first floor veranda, and then crept around to the corner room. There, in the light of a street lamp, he advanced to Mr. Townend and struck him such a vicious blow on the crown of the head with a loaded piece of ...

When Things Go Wrong. Quotations That Bring Help. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
When Things Qo Wrong. Quotations That Bring Help* By "VERITY." IN times of distress and anxiety men and women look in various directions for strength" and courage. Some find these in religion, others in the sympathy of their friends, yet others in worldly dis- tractions-so-called material plea- sures-and still others in books and music and the cairn world of art. Many people will tell you nowadays that they "have no time for poetry," yet almost every human being treasures some little fragment of poetry from which it is possible for him or her to draw consolation and encouragement in cases of emergency. t^ROM a favourite quotation it is possible to obtain considerable light on the character of any indi- vidual. "Life is an onion that one peels while weeping." Such is obvi- ously a quotation frequently on the lips of a habitual pessimist. "Life is sweet, brother; there s day and night, brother-'both sweet things." That is another favourite quotation which expresses the healthy optimis...

ARE PROTECTIVE. Primage and Exchange. TARIFF BOARD'S VIEW. CANBERRA, August 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
ARE PROTECTIVE. Primage and Exchange. TARIFF BOARD'S VIEW. CANBERRA, August 30. Outstanding among the Federal Cabinet's work next week will be con- sideration of the Tariff Board's report on the protective incidence of the primage duty and the exchange. It is understood that the report recommends that the Government should view both primage and exchange as super-pro- tective measures, and not solely as revenue-producers. The report has been printed, but its contents are being kept secret until Parliament meets on September 27, when, it is expected, it will be tabled. The Prime Minister (Mr. j. A. Lyons) to-day remained in bed in an effort to rid himself of a heavy cold, from which he has been suffering for some days. He cancelled all engage- ments for to-day, but it is not thought that his condition will prevent his at- tendance at the pre-sessional Cabinet meetings, which will begin In Can- berra to-morrow. Practically all the major detailed work that awaits Cabinet's approval has ...

"COURIER-MAIL" WEATHER CHART. Commonwealth Meteorological Bureau, Brisbane, August 30. Notes on the 9 a.m. Weather Chart: Atmospheric pressure distribution over Queensland, the north-eastern corner ol New South Wales, the Tasman Sea, New Zealand, and waters eastwards and north | eastwards beyond FIJI Islands, has xinder gone practically no change In the 24 hours ended 9 a.m. to-day, that Is to say, those regions have remained under the persistent Influence of the great anti- cyclone, the two centres of which appear on to-day's chart very much as at 9 a.m. yesterday, namely, over the North Tas- man Sea between Lord Howo and Nor- folk Islands, and over and on both tides of the South Island of New Zealand, and the intensity of both has not waned. A Budden and unexpected movement of the weak anticyclone, the centre of which extended yesterday north-west- wards from Eyre's Peninsula to a point some hundreds of miles to the south- wards of Hall's Creek, has brought It with enhanced vigour...
REOPEN TRAMWAY. BUDERIM PROPOSAL. COUNCILLOR'S OFFER. BUDERIM, August 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
REOPEN TRAMWAY. BUDERIM PROPOSAL. COUNCILLOR'S OFFER. BUDERIM, August 30. A meeting of 200 rate payers last night decided to ask the Maroochy Shire Council to grant a commission to Councillor H. J. Murphy for three months to run the Buderim-Palm- woods tramway, which has been closed, in an attempt to put it on a paying basis. Councillor Murphy is prepared to cut the wages of £17 8s a week by half and to supervise the working gratuitously until he has proved it a paying concern. He will cut freights considerably and employ relief labour on the permanent way. The tram will provide an afternoon Instead of a morning service, giving growers the market connection they desire. A deputation comprising Councillor Murphy and Messrs. A. E. Vise and H. V. Fielding was appointed to wait on the Premier (Mr. W. F. Smith) and ask for relief of the tramway loan, which is £29,000, the interest being £1698 a year.
NOVEL NOTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
NOVEL NOTIONS. A NEW idea for the up-to-date oride was illustrated at a recent wed- ding in London, when the heroine of the hour had her Christian name Evelyn-traced in one corner of her tulle veil in narrow white satin rib- bon. The smart girl who wears a hand knitted Jumper with her "odd" skirt or summer coat and skirt will wear also a matching knitted band on her hat. Despite the saying of the rose, which is as sweet by any other name, a colour with an attractive name seems doubly attractive. For the brunette and the blonde respectively this sum- mer there will be a clear yellow called "Lemon Skin," and a cool green named "Lettuce Heart." A golden lace tablecloth was ad- mired by the Prince of Wales when he dined recently in London as the guest of the Brazilian Ambassador. The hostess at the Brazilian Embassy employs a tablecloth of all over filpt lace for ordinary occasions, with gold lace for special gala dinners. Fink carnations and pink candle shades added to the fairy-like e...
