DISTRIBUTING WAGE CUT EFFECTS Court Discusses Position of Prosperous Companies PROMISES CONSIDERATION Melbourne, February 27. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
DISTRIBUTING WAGE CUT EFFECTS Court Discusses Position of Prosperous Companies PROMISES CONSIDERATION Melbourne, February 27. When the Full Court of the Ar- bitration Court, consisting of Chief Judge Dethridge, Judge Beeby, and judge Drake-Brockman, dealt to- Judge Drake-Broctanan, day with more applications for re ductions of 10 per cent, in award rates in respect to various indus tries, the question arose whether prosperous companies would be given tbe benefit of the reduction. Tliis discussion arose from a remark by Mr. G. A. Mooney, who represented the Coopers' Union, and who suggested a few days ago that such companies as the Colonial Sugar Refining Co. should not be given the relief asked for. Mr. Mooney returned to the matter again to-day, when, the case of the Coopers' Union was before the court. Mr. Mooney said that the court had indicated that it might not make any difference between those companies that were prosperous and those that were not. Such an intimation would eff...

COUNTRY CRICKET CARNIVAL MATCHES BEGIN ON MARCH 9 M. Hutton's Eligibility Questioned [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
COUNTRY CRICKET CARNIVAL MATCHES BEGIN ON MARCH 9 M. Hutton's Eligibility Questioned The inclusion of M. Hutton, of Port Augusta, in the South Australian team, to play against Tasmania to-day, has caused discussion as to whether he will be eligible to play for the Wandearah club in trfe country cricket carnival, which will begin in Adelaide on March 9. The rules of the Country Carnival Cricket Association provide for the ex clusion of district cricketers, but no provision is made debarring country players who step into first class cric ket without first playing for a district j cricket club. i The secretary of the association &lt;Mr. C. H. Haxtwig) said yesterday that it would be regrettable if Hutton were refused permission to play for Wan dearah simply because the State se lectors had decided to give him a trial in an unimportant foter-Staie match. It was unlikely that Wan dearah would lose his services for the carnival matches. Turf Wicket for Practice It is probable that...
RAIL MARGINS CUT IN VICTORIA 15,000 Men Affected Melbourne, February 27. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
RAIL MARGINS CUT IN VICTORIA 15,000 Men Affected Melbourne, February 27. The Railways Classification Board to-day issued an interim award provid- ing for an emergency reduction of 10 per cent, on margins in excess of the basic wage. Th? award affects 15.000 railway men. The board has attached important conditions to the award, the object of which is to ensure equality of sacrifice throughout the service. It was originally estimated by the Commissioners that a reduction of 10 per cent, in the margins would save £74,000 for the remainder of this finan cial year, but conditions imposed will upset this estimate. The reduction will not apply to those employes wno suffered a reduction of 10 per csnt. or more ori the setting aside j of the railways' awards hi October oij last year. j

TASMANIA TO PLAY HERE TO-DAY Visiting Side Keen FORMER SOUTH AUSTRALIAN IN PARTY [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
TASMANIA TO PLAY HERE TO-DAY Visiting Side Keen FORMER SOUTH AUSTRALIAN IN PARTY Immediately after their arrival from Melbourne by the express yes- terday, the Tasmanian cricketers practised at the Adelaide Oval, and made their first acquaintance with the Adelaide wicket. One member of the team, however, knows something of Adelaide cricket conditions. He is B. E. Ward, who Played cricket and football for West Torrens last year. When the Tas- Uianiau team to visit Melbourne and Adelaide was announced, he was not among those chosen, but the last-minure withdrawal of N. Davis resulted in Ward being included in the party. Mr. Harold Bushby, the manager of the team, eaid it included several pro mising players. Cricket in Tasmania needed the help afforded by visits from the stronger States, and he hoped that South Australia would send a team before long. The match, which will begin at 1130 a.m. to-day, will finish on Tuesday Messrs. G. A. Hele and L. G. Wallace will umpire. The teams are:...

PARTY GOVERNMENT UNDEMOCRATIC ELECTORAL SYSFTEM To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
PARTY GOVERNMENT UNDEMOCRATIC ELECTORAL SYSFTEM To the Editor Sir—Mr. W. G. Duncan claims that the party system makes for stability . of government. I challenge that statement. During the last three years every State has changed its Govern-! ment. those that praridusly were Labor ? now being Nationalist, and vice versa.' whilst in Victoria the full three vears did not elapse, for a dissolution of Parliament caused an election and a change of Government at an earlier dste. The same tli'"? has occurred in the Federal sphere. Qne cannot call that stability of government. In other parts of the British Empire, where the party system of government is in use, the same thing is happen ing. Does not this constant cnange : show thai the people are so dissatis ? fled with the Governments they are . getting that they axe willing to try tne ? alternative that is offering in the hope ?. that it will prove to be something bet .! ter, often to find thai it is worse?
