TECHNICAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 29 June 1912

TECHNICAL EDUCA TION. 'Did not the^ Education Commission, while it was in Sydney, enquire into tech nical education?' asked the 'Mail' man of Mr. Styles, M.L.C., yesterday. 'Yes,' he replied, 'that was one of our principal missions.' vvnat was the result* 'Well, I forecast the result will be the complete reorganisation of the Adelaide School of Mines. In Sydney we found that the technical schools were doing a splendid work and were far in advance of our own institutions' 'I suppose the Commission, therefore, will mcommend that the Adcalide School of Mines should be reorganised.' 'Certainly. When you come to consider it the position there is impossible. It does not compare with the ? technical schools, in the eastern States. Why, do you know that there are cases here where the School of Mines diploma is not recog nised over the border. That is shocking, is it not? We are lagging miles behind in connection with the whole thing.' 'What are you going to do about it?' 'There is only one ...

'Not at all,' replied Mr. MacDonald; 'that was purely a mare's nest. Some body divulged to the press the contents of a ballot paper, which did not deal with the Immediate discontent.' 'An enterprising pressman evidently took you down.' 'Yes, that is it; but it was not in Ade laide—it was in Sydney. I suppose they have to get hold of something new when there are only shreds left of the burg lary scare.' 'But there is some serious discontent?' 'Yes. We find that the great diffi culty has been that when any matter of urgency arises, and it is necessary to take some action, the State has either to take that action itself or wait until the other associations can be consulted, usually i...

'You seem to think it was on our recommendation that Mr. Duncan was knighted.' 'Well, was it not so?' asked- the 'Mail' man. 'No,' replied the politician, 'it was not. At least, I have never heard of any recommendation, and I think we should have been the first to know if Cabinet had decided to depart from its custom Dot to recommend Knighthoods.' 'It must have been Sir. Peake. then?' 'I reckon it was,' he answered. 'If I understood the Premier aright I should certainly say it was.' 'Why, what did the Premier say?' 'Well, I met him after the honour vas announced. 'Hullo, Archie,' I said, 1 see you have knighted Duncan.' 'Archibald replied, 'Well, don't you think we have done the right thing?'

POVERTY IN ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 29 June 1912

POVERTY IN ADELAIDE. 'What is the cause of any poverty there may be in Adelaide?' the 'Mail' man asked of Mr. F. B. H. Vincent (sec retary of the Adelaide Benevolent Strang ers' Friend Society), of Mortal ta street. feickness, death of the breadwinner, or some equally sad cause is responsible for it,' he replied. 'But are there many in Adelaide who do not know where to turn next for a crust?' _ 'It is surprising what a number of fami lies there are who come under those head ings. This year we are assisting 87 widows, 28 deserted wives, 62 families with fathers ill, and 124 families with various needs of a rial nature, besides single people who are ill or are in trouble. 'Do poor wages affect the position?' 'No. The average wage is good; but while the cost of living is high, it is more a matter of degree of wealth, so far as wages are concerned, than a ques tion of poverty.' 'How do the people take the help you provide?' 'Well, it is pleasure to Bee the way that confidence is restore...

INCREASING MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 29 June 1912

INCREASING MAR RIAGES. 'Yes, more people are getting married every year,'' said the Registrar, Air. A. J. Korflf, to 'The Mail' representative the other day, 'and this, I suppose, is a sign of prosperity.' 'Are you getting more marriages at the Registrar's office than formerly?'' 'Xo; the figures keep about the- same, which means that there is a proportionate decrease. This, I take it. is because folk arc better off. Most people prefer being married by a clergyman, if they can afford the fee.' 'What does a registry office marriage cost?' 'If notice be given it costs 12/6, but if the parties want to be married straight away by licence the sum is £3 10/. The proportion of those married in a registry office is very small, being only about 3 per cent.'

Books And their Writers. By «SpeH-.V BOOKS REVIEWED, An Inarticulate Poet in Search of Love. 'Little Brother,' by (Jilbert Cannon; ffielnemann, London (George ' Robertson Proprretary, Limited, Adelaide).— This is a book with two prefaces, and purports to be the work of three authors— firstly. Btenhen Laurie, 'A changeling born of the mists of Galloway, -with a dond of nlist at the back of his brain;' secondly, his brother, the Philogoliet, who arranged the scattered manuscripts left by the 'changeling;' and thirdly, the novelist, who consented to father the completed production. She manuscript had proved a source of grave anxiety to the professor, who, tinder its disturbing influence, declaimed love poems to his -class, instead of analysing them philologically; and who, 'while engaged on a treatise on Aryan roots, 'began to See Aryans much as a drunken man Bee pint rats.'

LITERATURE AND EMOTION, Prof. Henderson's Lecture. r* Thp effect of emotionalism on writing was the keynote of the first of Professor G. C. Henderson's course of lectures on the - 'Ro- mantic Revival in English Literature.' There was a fairly large attendance at the university on- Tuesday evening, when the lecture was delivered, and one can safely say that everybody found it interesting.

?XEE ADELAIDE HOUNDS, _ Salisbury: Bun. --. By 'SUi-pert.' The rain during the week had made the going rather on the holding side on Sat urday for the run at Salisbury, some of the fallow paddocks traversed being on the heavy side, but fairing it all round no possible fault could ? be found with the country traversed.

NEW ATTRACTIONS. - At HvolL There was standmg room only at the Tivoli Theatre to-night, when the Bick ardian management presented their week ly change of programme— a programme of infinite variety and all-round excellence. Additional interest was manifested in to-? night's offerings owing to the reappear ance in Australia,', after an absence of some 10 years, of Alex Hurley, the well known English coster comedian. The years have dealt lightly with Mr. Hurley, and it is difficult to say whether the cle ver artist is a better performer now than he was when last here, which is, per haps, the most complimentary, o-emark we can pass about Mr. Hurley. He was warmly welcomed to-night, and the an dience could not have enough of his cle ver coster, creations. He is a capable comedian, and should have another suc cessful tour of the Commonwealth. Mozetto, who made his Australian debut, is a juggler par excellence. He introduced clever comedy into nis unique act of nov elty juggling, the most ...
