TRAVELLING IN THE SPIRIT. [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
TRAVELLING IN THE SPI£lT. A travel book should first and fore Inost give the reader a sense of jour neying in pleasant and interesting com pany. All the great literature of the long trail owes its appedal not so much to the description of the scenes as to the way in which the author makes us enjoy sharing his feelings about them. 'We must ourselves take part in the ad ventures as they occur in the spirit of their recorder. The scientific outloolk of pure objectivity is just what we do not want in a book of travel. IWve must have the narrative colored by the pre judices and predilections of the scribe, and if these do not jar upon us we shall enjoy ourselves in his company.

PLATE CRACKED Steamer Held For Repairs [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
PLATE CRACKED Steamer Held For Repairs I While a member of the crew was :hipping the side of the steamer Tre denham at Port Adelaide preparatory to repainting, he discovered that one of the vessel's plates an inch in thick ness was cracked for a length of 3 ft. This plate is situated on the port side. 'zabeam of No. 4 hatch, just aft of the midship deckhouse. The crack extends vertically down from the level of the main deck. The tank 'tween decks of No. 4 hold was full of Melbourne cargo from Liverpool, and they "were opened up for inspection. There appears to lave been little damage done to this cargo by seawater, which entered the fracture, although it is hard to gauge until her discharge. This cargo is mostly bagged alkali and cask oil. It is not known how the damage was sustained, but probably the bad wea t er encountered on her voyage out, which lasted for over two weeks at one stretch, was responsible. Repairs were promptly put in hand, and the crack oxy-welded. In additiori a...

LEACOCK AND LIMELIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
LEACOCK AND LIMELIGHT. "Over the Footlights," by John Lane. The Bodley Head. From the Harvey Book Company. Every humorist has his mannerisms, and they sometimes become wearisome, but custom can never altogether stale the reader of Stephen Leacock. There is always some fresh freak of inge nuity to startle the reader. Just when he seems to be lulled into the peace that follows one laugh he is shocked into another. Mr. Leacock's humor is like the art of the bowler who both swerves and breaks. The batsman, thinking he has dealt with the swerve, is taken off his guard by the break. In this book the Canadian professor "pots" the different types of dramatic performance in fashion today. For this task his mastery of the art of anti climax is admirably suited. He,4ifts us on a crest of excitement and lets us down with a sheer drop into the absurd. We see this method at its best in his parody of the usual class trans lation of a Greek play. But there Is nearly always a vein of keen observa ti...
