PRAISE FOR HANS HEYSEN Artist's "Amazing Versatility" "What impresses one most is Hans Heysen's amazing versatility. Looking round, one would think that this was the work of a dozen artists, rather than that of one man," said Mrs. Layington Bonython yesterday, when opening an exhibition of pictures by Heysen in the Society of Arts gallery. Institute Build ing, North-terrace. "In the early part of his career," con tinued Mrs. Bonython, "Hans Heysen's reputation seemed to rest on his beau tiful studies of gum trees, and when he turned his attention to landscapes, still life subjects, and interiors he be came even more famous. As a painter j of flower and fruit subjects we believe j him to have no equal, although it is only during the last two or three years that he seriously turned to such studies." Mrs. Bonython pointed out that Hey- : sen was no mere copyist. He was es sentially an individualist. The most fascinating- of his work were probably his Central Australian studies. They we...

DIARY OF A DOCTOR Lay and Professional Advice YOUNGER GENERATION SPEAKS UP This is a weekly article writ- ten by a doctor with a subur- ban practice. All the names are fictitious. ALBERT RTTWORTH, in whom I had, with the help Of X-rays, diagnosed an early tubercu losis last ?week, returned to-day. "WeU. old man," I said sympathetic ally, "have you made all your arrange ments for a year's holiday?" "No," lie answered, shortly. "Then you aren't going to accept my advice, and the specialist's?" "Well, you see, doctor," began Albert, uncomfortably, and a bit sullenly, 'Tve been touring to the family and one or two of my best friends about It, and they want to know how can I have con- Sumption if I haven't got a cough?" "It's quite possible," I replied. "Well, It may be," answered Albert, "but everyone tells me that I've been over-working: this year, and that it -would be rather wonderful if I wasn't feeling tired and run-down, and if I hadn't lost a bit of weight." "WeU, of course, it's...
NO FLOWERS—BY ORDER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
NO FLOWERS—BY ORDER While the wonderful Underground station was being built below Picca- dilly Circus, Gilbert's statue of Eros, which had poised gracefully in the very centre of Piccadilly, "the heart of thr j world," went into retirement. For s I long time nobody knew where Eros; was. Then he was discovered in a lumber-room, and a popular clamor arose for the replacement of 'Lon don's mascot." Westminster Ciiy Council has at length agreed that Eroe may return, but it draws the line against the reinstatement ot his 6a Le; lites, the flower "girls" who used lo sell posies abour the statue's base. Ero;: will occupy an island amid the swirl ing tides of traffic, and the Westmin ster Council does not think that pedes trians should be encouraged lo breas* these perilous streams in order to Quy blossoms from "Nell," '?Lily," "Rosie." and the rest. So that anotlie: pic turesque feature of London life is tc disappear in obedience to" the inexor able demands of progress. Wnat Nell. who clai...

Having proved the value of such pools there, no less than £100.000 was spent last season In tbe erection and reconstruc-, tion of bath;:.

FIFTY YEARS AGO FROM "THE ADVERTISER," OF FEBRUARY 28, 1881. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
FIFTY YEARS AGO FROM "THE ADVERTISER," OF FEBRUARY 28, 1881. Tennyson's new play, "The Cup," successfully produced by Irving at the Lyceum Theatre, London, is a tragedy in blank verse, concerned with happen ings to Asia Minor to B.C. 300. Queen Victoria's speech at the opening of Parliament con tains the cautious words, "there has been a gradual but not very rapid increase in the trade of my country." Inhabitants of Eudunda. be ins dissatisfied with the site selected by the Government for their post office, have sub scribed sufficient money to pur chase another, the title deeds of which have been handed to the Minister of Education (Mr, King). Complaints are made that the city and suburbs are be coming infested with, vicious dogs. Children have been at tacked by dogs in Rundle and King William-streete. Costing £2,000, the new Ham ley Bridge Railway Station buildings are ready for occupa tion. !
WHAT EFFECT CLOSING WOULD HAVE Fewer Exhibits at the Zoo [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
WHAT EFFECT CLOSING WOULD HAVE Fewer Exhibits at the Zoo "Anything done to decrease revenue would mean a reduction of exhibits." said the president of the Zoological Association (Mr. J.H. Gosse), discuss- ing the possibility of the Zoo being re quired to close. "The association has never sought the permission of the Chief Secretary to remain open. The animals and birds nave always been available for public inspection on Sun days, and a charge has always been made." He added that the Zoo was not doing much more than pay its way. and tut burden of falling revenue had been shared by the directors and stafi, all of wnom had had their salaries reduced. The success of the Zoo was entirely dependent on the support of the public, and if it were closed on Sundays ard the continuity of service thus broken, ihe financial position would become serious. "The Iflndon Zoo is closed to the nub- Uc on Sundays," he continued. "Only members of the Zoological Society are admitted, and then by ticket. N...
FORGOTTEN GUARDS Curious Stories from France and Russia [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
FORGOTTEN GUARDS Curious Stories from France and Russia There used to be a little park to the neighbourhood of the Military School in Paris. Napoleon III. once strolled through this park and remarked that I there were no benches or seats of any kind hi it. So he ordered a set of benches. The school authorities were charged with their upkeep. Once a year the seats were painted, and in order to prevent the unsuspecting Parisian flaneur at the end of his stroll from planting himself squarely in the i wet paint, the school authorities put a j i sentinel on guard. The man was re- ! ! lieved af:er two hours, and another soldier took his place. This went on for a week, for months, for years. The trees were removed from the park, the benches decayed under the onslaught of 6un and rain, but the sentinel appeared as regularly as clock-work. Nobody remembered why the- man vras there, until :he out break of the Grea: War, when every soldier was needed at the front, and the military governor of ...

RADIO'S FUTURE AMAZING AMERICAN CLAIMS HEARING STAR MOVEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
RADIO'S FUTURE AMAZING AMERICAN CLAIMS HEARING STAR MOVEMENT An Australian resident in America writes to "The Adver- tiser" that a Washington en- gineer is directing wireless waves at planets and catching diem on die rebound. Dr. Hoyt Taylor, of the Navy De partment, Bellevue Observatory, Wash ington, is doing things with electricity that men never dreamed could be done, he says. For instance, there is his "echo test," by ?which space may be ac curately measured. An electrical wave is directed to some other planet. When it comes back to the recording instru ment, the distance from the earth to the planet is computed by calculations based on the known speed of wireless waves. A complete radio city is now being built in Manhattan by John D. Rocke feller and the National Broadcasting Company The architect, Raymond Hood, believes that experts are on the verge of almost unbelievable steps in radio advancement. He says that the fascinating problem whereby the world 1 may ccc, as well as h...
IS THE OPERA DOOMED? "Not Worth Saving" Says Galli-Curci PRESERVING ITS GOLDEN MOMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
IS THE OPERA DOOMED? "Not Worth Saving" Says Galli-Curci PRESERVING ITS GOLDEN MOMENTS (Copyright.) GRAND opera has lost its attraction for the public, says Madame Galli-Curci. Grand opera is doomed, and I she sees no cause for grief in that. j WHY save the opera?" Not only does Amelita Galii- Curci believe that the institution is [ doomed, but she cannot see why anyone should profess to be worried about it. Homer Samuels, her pianist-husband, agrees with her, or she with him. I "The symphony orchestras trill pre serve the parts of opera orchestration worth performing and play them far better than any band attached to an opera house," Mr. Samuels says, think ing as an instrumentalist. "The vocal passages worth singing t will survive on the concert stage," says Galli-Curci. I It is not because she will not sing with the Metropolitan this year that GaUi-Curci t*?iT?ir&lt;i the opera is mori bund, she says. It is because she felt opera a dying thing that she declined to sing wi...

EFFECTS OF INFLATION LESSONS FROM AUSTRIA Warning By Professor Hicks [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
EFFECTS OF INFLATION LESSONS FROM AUSTRIA Warning By Professor Hicks A warning of what may happen in Australia if inflationists gain control of affairs was given by Pro- fessor C.S. Hicks, of the University, yesterday. Professor Hicks lived for some years to Germany and Austria after the war, and has first-hand knowledge of the effect of inflation to those countries. The rot to Germany, he said, started with the cessation of national income, tbe depreciation of the value of assets, and tiie inability en that account of the State in meet its commitments. The National Bank, which was responsible for the issue of money, just printed notes, people lost confidence in it, and the avalanche started- In 1923, when the German mark had soared until It was worthless, Hamburg took, its own monetary affairs to hand. It issued its own money, which was legal tender m Hamburg alone. It mortgaged the whole of its business properties and going concerns and issued debentures against them, and the syst...
