"Air Attacks Useless Against Battleships" WASHINGTON, February 26. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
"Air Attacks Useless Against Battleships" WASHINGTON, February 26. Admiral Pratt, reporting on the re- cent fleet manoeuvres off Panama, said that the consensus of opinion by officers was that air attacks were of "less value as a means of defence against approaching fleets" than expected. Vice-Admiral Reeves asserted that the air force alone "cannot stop the ad vance of battleships, and prevent them carrvin? out landing operations." The chairman of the Naval Com mittee said:—"lt is interesting to note that even aviation enthusiasts of the navy now admit the superiority of battleships."

WEST INDIES, 299 FOR TWO WICKETS Fine Opening in Last Test in Sydney HEADLEY AND MARTIN MAKE CENTURIES Sydney, February 27. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
WEST INDIES, 299 FOR TWO WICKETS Fine Opening in Last Test in Sydney HEADLEY AND MARTIN MAKE CENTURIES Sydney, February 27. The West Indies batsmen took full advantage of the conditions in which they began the fifth Test on the Sydney Cricket Ground to-day. They batted first on a good wicket, and at stumps had made 299 for the loss of two wickets. Of the Australian eleven, Woodfull, Fonsford, Bigg, Ironmonger, and Grim matt had arrived by train half an hour before the match began. Although there was no apparent lassitude in the field of any the Victorians, it was, per haps, as well that tbey did not bat. The West Indies team was keen to take every advantage offered them. The first assistance was the absence, in a strong wind, of a fast bowler. Fairfax was the only opener possible and he was innocuous. He lacked length and direction in his first over, -which included a full toss. Oxenham Ineffective Oxenham bowled into the wind, and was just as ineffective. His second ball was a wide...

When the Speaker (Mr. Loiigworth) announced that the Bill was carried, "the President's disapproval to the contrary notwithstanding."' he was greeted with wild cheering. The Bill was promntly rushed to the Senate for consideration to-morrow.
