ROUND THE BEEHIVE Earning His Salary [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
ROUND THE BEEHIVE Earning His Salary It happened in a suburban tramcar. An unusual time was wasted at the first stop. The motorman bore a wor ried look and was walking around the car. News quickly spread. The con ductor was missing! The trolly pole was reverted and slowly the car went back over its track. Everyone was on the lookout. People strained their eyes into the darkness. The passengers were fully expecting to find the ill-fated conductor lying prostrate beside the line. Half the dis tance was covered with no results. Then, as anxiety reached high tension, the motorman espied the nilssing one walking toward the car. "Ar,. you hurt?" "No; I only chased a lady for her fare." * a *r

JAYING TO JOHN Motor Cars and Puddles EINSTEIN AND THE CHICKEN [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
1 JAYINGi TO JOHN Motor Cars and Puddles LINSTEIN AND THE CHICKEN Fast moving motor cars, innumerable puddles in the street, and the ever-ready arms of watching policemen, are thlngs that you have to watch these days. Even the most respectable and law abiding citizens are daily being added to the list of delinquent jays whose records are being card indexed at the Town Hall and whose hard-earned cash is contributing to the improvement of jayless streets. It is no easy thing to cross the streets these days. When it rains it is an im possibility. Take Rundle street. A man left tl:e footpath to emulate the chicken of fame. He had gone a yard when a motor car whizzed past him. He side stepped. Another yard and another car. The insurance manager watching him breathed a sigh of relief. Then he met the stream of traffic coming the opposite way. If he stood stil he would be knocked down. So he deployed to the left behind the first line of traffic. Quick footwork saved him three times before ...
TECHNICAL EDUCATION EXPANSION URGED BUT WHERE IS THE MONEY? [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
TECHNICAL EDUCATION EXPANSION URGED BUT WHERE IS THE MONEY? "The activities of the technical branch of the department are some .hat varied, and although financdal condi tions have prevented any rapid expan sion in the past. it is noteworthy that the present Minister (Mr. T. Pascoe, M.L.C.,) has of late repeatedly advo cated the extension of technical educa-! tion, and has given practical evidence! of his sympathy with this work bry providing additional facilities in various lirections throughout the State." So said Dr. Fenner, director of the 'echnical schools, when asked to talk Ibout his work. This energetic little cientist, smiling, said that, although iis department was not established un il 1915, expansion was incessant, and idded branches of study would come long as required.

ABSORBING SKILLED LABOR [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
ABSORBING SKILLED LABOR Mr. R. W. loster, M.HI.R., recently made a statement that if 5,000 tradesmen were brought to the Comm onwealth in a month, everyone of them would be picked up at the ship's side by contractors, and each man would make work for two other men now unemployed. A writer in "The News," signing himself "Skilled Worker," challenges both of Mr. Foster's statements. Manifestly "Skilled Worker's" viewpoint is intensely personal, and his assertion that enquiries at the Labor Bureau and other gathering places of the unemployed would bear him out, shows that he has in view the unemployed as a whole, who are, unfortunately, always with us, and not the skilled artisan class. With industries and population multiplying, there must be greater de mands for skilled workmen, and evidence of this is available in the aston ishing swiftness with which the men recently retired from Islington were absorbed. Mr. Foster has excellent opportunities for ascertaining the facts which induced...

POTATO SALAD [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
POTATO SALAD New potatoes are considered by many to be far superior to old ones for salad. But old potatoes make delicious salad if they are carefully cooked so that they do not boil to pieces and become too mealy. Here is one recipe for potato salad made with old potatoes: -Pare the potatoes and boil them in slightly salted water until they are tender, but do not boil them rapidly, and remove them from the fire before they begin to break and flake on the surface. Cool them and then cut thornm in even dice. Mix them with a third their own quantity of finely minced celery and moisten them with French dressing, made from two parts of oil to one of good vinegar and seasoned with cayenne, salt, and a little celery salt. Then put the salad in big spoon fuls on lettuce leaves and top each spoonful with a tablespoonful of mayonnaise dressing. stern Parent-' Vhy did you let young Jones kiss you in the drawing room last night?"

Those responsible for the decoration of the Palais had gone to an immense amount of trouble, and their efforts were rewarded by the expresions of adminrantio heard on all sides for the elaborate and appropri ate setting for the dancers.
