TRADES DISPUTES BILL MAY BE DROPPED Liberals' Illegal Strike Clause Causes Trouble London, February 27. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
TRADES DISPUTES BILL MAY BE DROPPED Liberals' Illegal Strike Clause Causes Trouble London, February 27. The House of Commons standing committee on the Trades Disputes Bill took a division tonight on the Liberal amendment to the first clause, which seeks to define an illegal strike. The amendment, which the General Council of the Trades Unions Congress yesterday decided was so unacceptable, as if approved to render further pro gress of the Bill of little or no interest to the unions, was carried by 37 votes to 31 against the Government. The committee adjourned, and it is generally anticipated that the Govern ment will now drop the Bin. The Liberal amendment, which was moved by Dr. E. L. Burgin. makes illegal any strike or lockout which ex poses any substantial portion of the community to danger in health and safety by interference with the supply and distribution of essential food, water, fuel, light and other necessities. Mr. Hay Day, chairman of the Trades Unions Congress, describe...
PLANE COMING FROM BATAVIA Experimental Flight in May Melbourne, February 27. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
PLANE COMING FROM BATAVIA Experimental Flight in May Melbourne, February 27. A Royal Dutch air mail service Fok- ker aeroplane will leave Batavia in the Dutch East Indies on May 12 for an experimental flight to Sydney and Mel- bourne., by way of Wyndham and Camooweal. The flight is in connection with the offer of the Dutch 6ervioe to extend its activities to Australia. It was stated recently, however, that, owing to the financial stringency, the Federal Minis try was not likely at present to con sider favorably either the Dutch offer or the proposal that Imperial Airways, Ltd.. should extend its service from India to Australia. The Dutch ser vice occupies 11 or 12 days in the jour ney from Holland to Batavia. and the journey from Batavia to Melbourne will take about seven days. The aeroplane will return by way of Darwin. It will carry mails to Austra lia, but none on the return journey.
BARTER WITH RUSSIA HORRIFIES CANADA "Expediting Our Own Economic Ruin" OTTAWA, February 26. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
BARTER WITH RUSSIA HORRIFIES CANADA "Expediting Our Own Economic Ruin" OTTAWA, February 26. Protests were accumulating against the proposal of Colonel H.J. Mackie. acting on behalf of the Soviet, to ar- range the sale of £10,000,000 worth of Canadian farm machinery to Russia, in exchange for £4,000,000 worth of Russian coal and the balance in gold. Coal producers in Nova Scotia, Al berta, and British Columbia declare that the importation of coal would ruin j an already depressed industry. I Retailers in Ontario have already sent a protest to the Government, and Saskatchewan farmers see in the ac quirement of more farm machinery by Russia an Indication of still greater Russian wheat production. They de clare that the proposal ettould only be considered in the light of securing an agreement with Russia that the Soviet will not dump wheat, and sug gest a fixed price. !

Telling Time By the Eyes Of a Cat [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
Telling Time By the Eyes Of a Cat IN these days when clocks are rub by electricity, when every hour of the day and night is flashed all over the world from big radios, curious de- vices are still found by which one mea sures, discovers, or reminds himself of the time. In America certain cooks and house wives, when clocks run down, can boil an egg three minutes while humming six verses of "My Country, "Tis of Thee." One verse, sung in a slightly slower tempo than usual, takes thirty In certain districts of the Rhine provinces the recital of various prayers, each taking a definite period of time, aids the cook in the boiling of eggs or in other processes at the kitchen stove. The more modern method there, how ever, next to the clock, is the use of the hour-glass, a primitive yet efficient instrument. In mountain districts, in America or in Asia hillmen are found to whom watches and clocks are non-essentials. If one asks such a mountaineer how long it will take to walk to a certain poi...
His Last Talkie [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
His Last Talkie NO part could have been more fitting for Milton Sills than that of Jack London's rough and ready Sea Wolf in the talkie of that name which will be the chief feature at the Ozone Theatre at Marryatville and Enfield to-night. It was the last talkie Milton made before his death; and perhaps the best. And, as lie went down fighting in the talkie, so he went down, fighting, in The Sea Wolf was no ordinary soil ing captain. He was a man of culture. And bo was Milton. He was a graduate in philosophy of the University of Chicago, and at one time a lecturer there. But the movies cast their spell over him, end he went to Holly wood to take up roles which were as far removed from cultured study as anyone could imagine. You remember him as the he-man, swaggering hero o£ numerous films, whose language was not couched in the terms of philosophy, but in terms of blows. A fine actor was Milton, and a fine man. it is good to think that he left behind him as a monument, to w? powers c...

SUBMARINE SEA PALACES OF THE FUTURE Millions May be Saved by Routes Under Polar Ice [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
SUBMARINE SEA PALACES OF THE FUTURE Millions May be Saved by Routes Under Polar Ice GIGANTIC submarines, floating undersea palaces as luxurious and as well appointed as the finest passenger liners of to-day, will soon be hurtling through the da rk depths of the seven seas un hampered by winds or storms, unaffected by the tossing and pitching of mountainous waves in a heavy sea. TXUGE cargo-carrying submersibles ?*-*- will revise the trades routes of the world, plying unhampered under or through Arctic ice—the chief barrier to man's utilisation of the valuable polar lanes between the Eastern and Western Hemispheres—saving millions of pounds in fuel costs, canal tolls and freight rates. # i These are not the imaginings of a ; modern Jules Verne seeking to emulate his prophetic forecasts by a modern rendition of "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea." Thay are the calm and calculated predictions of Simon Lake, a man who has facts and figures' to back up his claims as well as a life ti...

Melba's Last Thoughts on Fame and Happiness [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
Melba's Last Thoughts on Fame and Happiness By DAME NELLIE MELBA In this article, written only a little while before she died, Melbo tells of her fight for fame and happi- ness. Fame she found; but she teas not sure that she liad found happi ness. CTAPPINESS is to be found in a ?*??*? thousand ?ways, and fame Is only one of them. If fame in itself were the only path to content of mind, I suppose my content would wane gradually as tie years passed, and other singers take the audiences of the world by storm But that is not so. If I could live again I do not think I would wish any more fame or any more wonder than I have already bad. I nesd not say that I. whose life has been spent singing to the world, am filled with sadness now that I realise that I have sung my last before the public—in all parts of Europe. Aus tralia, and America—that I have learnt to love. But it is a happy kind of sadness, if such a thins is possible: It is not regret. Ido not say to myself ' that I would like an...

OPERATION OF SCREEN GRID VALVES SPECIAL NEEDS FOR FULL EFFECTIVENESS SOME CIRCUIT REQUIREMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
OPERATION OF SCREEN GRID VALVES SPECIAL NEEDS FOR FULL EFFECTIVENESS SOME CIRCUIT REQUIRE MENTS By "OPERATOR" The screen grid, or four element valve, which is now used so extensively in modern radio receivers, is intended primarily for use as a radio frequency amplifier, but to get the most out of i: special circuit requirements are neces sary. Owing to the extremely high ampli fication constant, the impedance of the valve is necessarily fairly larse, and a valve with a high impedance to deliver maximum energy to the load into which It works, must work into a high im pedance, or to get the most gain from the valve the plate impedance must also b? high. Small Grid-Plate Capacity It being well known that a tuned circuit has a particularly high impe cance at resonance suggests at once the tuned plate method of coupling be tween BP. stages, and we find in prac tice that this circuit gives excellent results when used in conjunction with the screen grid valve. This valve has an extremely ...
