An appeal I for funds will last until October 26. Last year there was a button day, in addition to a personal appeal, but, as the Lord Mayor (Mr. Glover) allows only one button day a year, and that is granted to the Poppy Day Fund, street sales of badges this year have had to be abandoned. The association has had more calls lon its resources than it has been able to cope vrith. and needs financial assistance badly, especially to provide a good foundation for The provident fund, established for disbursement to limbless men when old age unfits them for work. Of the 250 members of the association, 71 are without one arm, 171 without one leg. six without legs, and two without an arm and a leg. For them the association has done splendid work.

"WOOL BOOM TALK EXAGGERATED" Authorities Say World Position Not Changed LONDON. October 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 9 October 1931
"WOOL BOOM TALK EXAGGERATED" Authorities Say World Position Not Changed LONDON. October 7. Although enquiries are more frequent and more home and foreign orders have been booked in the last fortnight, because of the tariff-like effect of the fall of sterling, anv talk of a wool boom j is considerably exaggerated, said a prominent, wool manufacturer today. Other authorities expressed the opinion that nothing more than a small spurt was noticeable now. They point out that the world position is not changed. "Wool is a world commodity, and world prices have not materially ad vanced,' said one. "We are gaining Drincinally through cancelled Continen tal orders. Hosiery, particularly, is belna; benefited. The most important factor is the liffine of the depression, in which the textile industry has been lons immersed. It is too early, how ever, for undue optimism. If sterling were stabilised at 15/, and Britain in troduced a tariff, we should be in a far better position."

WALTER KIRBY ON SERIOUS CHARGE Affected By Anaesthetic, He Declares LONDON, October 8. The Melbourne singer, Walter Kirby, 48. was charged at Westminster Court today with indecency in a public con- &lt;*> venience at Victoria Station on Sep- tember 9. The police evidence was that Kirby was kept under observa tion for an hour. Kirby, on oath, vehemently denied the charge. He said he underwent a painful throat operation that morning, and that hemorrhage was renewed while he was in a bus. Consequently he went to the station to attend to himself. He had a drug before the operation, and felt as if he had lost his memory. He thought is was a stroke. He felt as if he had 20 heads.
