WOMEN'S LOVE OF NOTORIETY When Publicity is a Curse Some Plea for Privacy [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
WOMEN'S LOVE OF NOTORIETY When Publicity is a Curse Some Plea for Privacy By Victoria Reynolds In Europe there is now, in scores of wonderful palaces. Whose owners live like rats in a castle, that twilight of royalty more cruel than all the ptarinir cf the son in which they have held a place so long. Queen Victoria's granddaughter wears peasant costumes carried out hi costly materials, is photographed hi them, and gives her ideas on house keeping and her testimonial for beauty preparations, if not in the one breath, at least hi the same publication. She is only one example. Ncr is the fad for DUblicity, an Inces sant blaring of the loud speaker on ! personal matters, confined to royalty, j Actresses no longer observe that grand old rule of the stage doer, which shut them off so completely from everyday life, and lent them a | clamor which nothing can reolace. Musical comedy heroines give recipes for Welsh rarebits and advice on the brtneing up of children; 6tem trage diennes confess...

IN OTHER CITIES CANBERRA GOSSIP From Our Special Correspondent Canberra, February 27. By all the signs and portents of the times, the Federal Labor regime is fast drawing to a close.

SUICIDE THEORY IN ELLIS CASE SCOUTED Hints of Another Leopold-Loeb Crime LONDON, February 27. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
SUICIDE THEORY IN ELLIS CASE SCOUTED Hints of Another Leopold- Loeb Crime LONDON, February 27. Remarkable interest is being taken in the Ellis tragedy at Sydney Sussex College, Cambridge. Newspapers are giving long reviews of the circumstances of the finding of Ellis's trussed-up body in a college bedroom, and strongly criti cise the police conclusion of suicide. They declare that nobody but the | police could believe such a far-fetched theory. The "Daily Express" pertinently asks who turned off.the electric light in the room. A light; was noi seen by the college servant when he went his rounds. Members of the family are strenu ously opposing the police theory, and the "Daily Express" quotes a co?ege professor as having asserted that it was a case of murder alier the style of the Leopold-Loeb murder in America a few years ago. Feeling a 4 the university has been aroused to such a pitch that many un dergraduates are proposing petitioning Scotland Yard, asking it to abandon the theory...
Gothic Architecture of Two Periods [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
Gothic Architecture of Two Periods The three-pointed arches of this porch denote its Gothic character, which is also apparent to the capitals and bases of the twin columns sup- porting them. Although the mouldings are of the early English period, the carving indicates a later one. This is specially noticeable in the carv- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ing on the capitals of the twin columns, where it is treated as surface carv- ing and covers the whole of the bell of the capital. On the chamfered responds or jambs the carving is not so profuse, and is different in character from that on the main capitals. The photo, shows the rich effect which the twin columns give to the porch when viewed on the angle, to addition to the broad soffit of the arches. This is the entrance to the porchway of Flinders-street Baptist Church.
AMERICA'S LIGHT AND SHADE Campaign Against Mr. Hoover Engineering, "Movies," and Prohibition [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
AMERICA'S LIGHT AND SHADE Campaign Against Mr. Hoover Engineering, "Movies," and Prohibition By An Australian Abroad The United States of America, vast, great, and wealthy, continues to provide contradictions not easily understood by the Australian mind. This article Humiliates many phases of American life. Los Angeles, January 24. IP one is to believe the statements of the average American citizen, and of the vast majority of the writers In the news paper and review press — out side dyed-in-the-wool Republicans—Mr. Hoover's popularity has declined to such an extent that if he went to the polls to-day it would seem fairly cer tain that he would have only a remote chance of re-election. He has not failed to keep his pre-election promises. He has not taken a very unpopular line along any major matter affecting the welfare of the United States. What, then, is the cause of this astonishing change In the attitude "of public and Press towards the country's leader? Backed to the extent ol ...
WHY I BECAME A REVOLUTIONARY "Spanish Monarchy Will Not Survive Another Year" MY PLANS FOR THE FUTURE By Major Franco, Spanish Aviator [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
WHY I BECAME A REVOLUTIONARY "Spanish Monarchy Will Not Survive Another Year" MY PLANS FOR THE FUTURE By Major Franco, Spanish Aviator Copyright Major Franco was Spain's most distinguished aviator. He was the inspiration of the last Spanish re- volution, and after threatening to bomb Madrid, be escaped by air to Portugal. IT was not by mere ctiance that I became a revolutionary. The term can be applied to nearly et'eryone in. Spain at the present time. No country in Europe has such an out of-date system of government asi Spain. In no other country are class' differences so pronounced, and no- i where does oppression weigh so heavily | on the people. I believe that Russia; under the Czars was the only country' that could be compared with the Spain of to-day. The revolutionary senti- 1 ment shows it self, in the Be- > publican form, among the middle ? just as much as the wor king classes. Bolshe vik propaganda has no eEect, the typical Spaniard being a born individua list and anti-...
AFFAIRS ABROAD REVIEW OF THE WEEK [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
AFFAIRS ABROAD REVIEW OF THE WEEK By the Foreign Editor These are times when the utterances of the political economists, new and old, have a greater vogue than a few years ago could the claimed for them. The members of the insurgent Repub lican-Democratic group in the Ameri can House of Representatives might all have come fresh from a study of John Stuart Mill's economic ?writings, so vivid is the conception of the truth he promulgated as to the difference between the production and disliibu tion of wealth. Production is largely, and in some cases altogether, the work! of nature, but the distribution of I wealth is an arbitrary tiling, depending j on man- made laws or usages. If these i arc faulty the results will be faulty too; and that is what the insurgent Republican-Democratic group hold to be the matter with the Federal Farm Board. It was a device designed to | rectify in an artificial v.-ay the dis abilities under which the primary pro ducers were placed by a tariff estab lish...
MOULDERS AND GOVERNMENT WORK [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
MOULDERS AND GOVERNMENT WORK At the meeting of the Moulders' Union at the Trades Hall on Thursday evening, the question of obtaining work which is at the disposal of the Govern- ment was discussed. One of the pro positions which had been placed before the Government was that portion of the Gi'ifiville pipeworks should be re opened, to allow former employes ta do the portion required by the Hydraulic Engineer's Department. Another was that the men v.ho had been iccus tomed to that work ehjuld be given preference of employment at the Islington Workshops; and a third was that, failing the employment of the' men in the Government service, private employers should be given an oppor tunity to tender for the work, and thus j give the out-of-work moulders a chance &lt;of securing employment. The mefit ; ins in-structed its officials to approach | the Govemmen* again, and lie result :of the interview will be placed before I a meeting of the men, to be held next Wednesday evening. - ?...

Chefs Blackmail Employers [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
Chefs Blackmail Employers BLACKMAIL amounting to more than £10,000 in one week is levied in busy reasons on London wine merchants, butchers, provision dealers, cigar mer- chants, and grocers. The money is handed to head waiters, chefs, wine waiters, and stewards of hotels, restaurants, and clubs—in order that business should not be lost. If the money is paid there are no complaints concerning the goods sup plied by the various firms, tout if it is not, chefs see to it that meat is not served until it is bad; wine stewards store bottles in the wrong temperature, and the wine is served with its flavor ruined; or the bottle is shaken before serving; cigars are placed near hot pipes and ruined; luxuries euch as cavi are, pate de foie gras, expensive cheeses, and galantines are tampered with. Customers, of course, complain; the manager is called, and the blackmailer explains that the goods "came from So-and-So," but he knows a much more reliable firm.
