Duty On Barley [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
Duty On Barley Growers of barley in South Australia have reason to feel concerned at the cable newPs from London that the British Government is contemplating the imposition of a duty on mnalting barley. A few years tgo Imoct of th, exportable barley from South Australia was shipoped to Continental countries. Aus tralian malting barley had attained a high reputation amoDgst buyers in Germany, Bei rium. France, and Switzerland. but owing to the disturbed political and economic con dition of Germany and the slump in the exchange rates, practically no business bhas? been done in that direction this season. On the other hand, however, the United King domn has taken a fairly large quantity of barley, but if this market is to be barred to Australian grain the outlook for the growers is most discouraging. Represtn tations against the Government's propoali should be made through the Agent-General for South Australia in London.

FLAPPER HAS SILK PYJAMA OUTLOOK Sets Fashions Fr atrons and Aunts (By Kenneth Scott.) The flapper is an institution. She is more than that-she is a gourmet. Her tastes set the fashions for the matrons and aunts. She is the last thing botht in gossip and scandal. She know everything, and her ignorance is su perb. She passes all understanding,. She is an opportunust. "Age cannot Wither her nor custom stale her infinite variety." Her dis dain is an element to be dreaded, and her admiration is something to be feared. She is expensive. She loves herself. She surveys all the world through a microscope and a telescope. And she goes on surveying, tripping over love chasms, altering her mind as frequently as she changes her poses, and trying to bring the sad old world into line with the beaded bubbles of thoughtless youth. But she's fine! Her frocks are superb. WThether she is bobbed or pig-tailed or has put her hair on top, she will not be denied, for she is "seadfast, serene, immovable, th...

HALF-HOURS WITH BOOKS STORY OF MODERN POLAND. [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
HALF-HOURS WITH BOOKS (Br "E rasmus.") STORY OF MODERN POLAND. "Two Shall be Born," by Marie Oem ier. William Heinemann. Our copy from Harvey Book Company. The scene is a ruined castle on the borders of Russian and German Poland, and the time just before the beginning of the great war. This is a swift-moving, well-con structed story of three mighty secret services pitted against each other. Each great organisation is incarnate in a character of great power. Patriotic loves and hates are interwoven with burning private feuds and romances. The central figure is a Polish count of mighty intellect, a scholar of inter national reputation in astronomy and chilology, a rather rare combination, by the way. He tries to inspire his lovely and warm-hearted daughter with his own utter devotion to Poland and hatred of Russia. The child plays an exciting part in her father's far reachi-g machinations, but the count's plans lose their grip on her when she discovers, after his death, that they have...

NOTHING TO FEAR France at World's Bar (PUBLISHED IN "THE TIMES.") LONDON, August 3. [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
NOTHING TO FEAR S France at World's Bar (PUBLISHED IN 'THE TIMES.") LONDON, August 3. Suddenly making up his mind that no documents should be concealed, M. Poincare has published a long memoran dum sent to Great tBritaiu on June 7, justifying the French attitude (says the Paris correspondent of The Times".) Previously M. 'Poincare objected to. the publication of documents on the ground that the apparent, Allied differ ences would encourage the German! re sistanc.e. Now French official circles say, if England's intentions are to bring France to the bar of world opinion. France has 'iothing. to fear, and therefore it is ad visable to publish the other papers. But even if weorld opinion is against France, it is difficult to imagine anything that would cause France to swerve from her chosen path. She still hopes to avoid a rupture with Great Britain, scarcely reflecting whether this is compatible with sitting tight in the fRhur. Throughout the French comment on the British speeohe' runs...
