London Magistrates Blush. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 28 October 1927
London Magistrates Blush. Twenty years ago the youths and larrikins of Sydney had a never-end- ing source of amusement in the antics of figleaf Chidley, the author of a classic labelled (not libelled) "The Answer," (That " great work," by the way, never appealed to the " Mother Grundy " elements in any of the States.) Chidley the Second has now arisen in London, but the Hyde Park police imagine his fig-leaf garment is even worse than the " skirtlet " of the modern flapper, so he's not having as happy a time as that enjoyed by the Sydney philoso- pher. Even hardened Stipendiaries veil their blushes and cry aloud "Take him away " when what appears to be a professional diver springs into the dock.

KEW PALACE -o The original Royal Palace of Kew was pulled down in 1803 and there is no trace to-day of the pleasant country house where Frederick Prince of Wales lived with his wife the Princess Augusta who founded Kew Gardens with her exotic garden in 1759. It was here that George III and Queen Charlotte loved to 'come and stay. The present house was used as a nursery for their children, and later on was given as an establishment for the Prince of Wales. The tiny ante room to the library on the left still preserves the lovely panelling of the old house. All the other rooms are dignified, some of them with wide, low window seats. Ivlany famous people lived at Kew. They include Sir Peter Lily, Gains î'O'ough (who was buried in Kew Church), Sir John Duckering', Lord Krcper" of the Great Seal in the time of Queen Elizabeth, and Charles Somerset, Earl of Worcester.
TREES WITH SQUARE TRUNKS [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 1 November 1927
TREES WITH SQUARE TRUNKS An attempt is being made by forestry experts to grow trees with square trunks instead of round ones. The aim is to eliminate waste «no' enable the lumbermen to cut the trees into many similar-sized sec- tions. Co-incident With the experi- ment, it is proposed to restrict the numbers of useless trees in the woild and to grow in their places giant pii:o or other- trees. Among the :rees classed« as useless would be those which grow in a forest near the West Coast of Africa.. Their trunks are often as much as four feet, in dia- meter. But they only reach a height of one foot. No tree bears more than two leaves, which are sometimes six feet long.

EASIER TO WRITE JAZZ [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 1 November 1927
EASIER TO WRITE JAZZ Most people who write light music of tne popuiar type tell us that it is not only much more ditticuit to write than ic sounds, but more difficult to write than is more serious music. George Gershwin, the writer of the "Rhapsody in Blue" and other jazz works, however, tells a different story. Gershwin has ambitions as a serious composer, and reports speak well of his attempts in this direction He has written a concerto, and hes has written a musical comedy, and of the two it is the concerto tnat has given him the most work and the most trouble. "A musical comedy," he has said, "is the work only ol' a few hours to get into the right shape and sketch out in greater or less de- tail. The concerto, however, has cost me days and days of the greatest concentration and exertion. "Never- theless, he finds that there is a great er joy in this kind of work,- and he hopes to do much more of it. . Yt we have the other great example oí Beethoven, who said that he would rather...
CHINA [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 1 November 1927
CHINA The "Tribuna" has published a series of four articles from its Lon- don correspondent, Signor Ln\'ely which gives an excellent review oí "the situation. The iirst article deals with events up to the despat'.m ot the Shanghai Defence Force. It re- cognises that practically, during ¿he whole of 1926, ,the British Covern ment was endeavouring to pledge the United States and Japan to some pos- itive action that should be the result of the promises made to China at Washington Conference. Months pass- ed, with no result. Great Britain finally decided to act, to resume the initiative. And with the historic memorandum of December l8, 1926, she dealt the first blow at Bolshevism reinforcing it-and this was a very needful make-weight for Chinese mentality, with the Shanghai Ex- peditionary Force. And the third blow was dealt at Bolshevism oy it- self, when it ruined the already weak economic system of China and brought about the inevitable reaction in the agricultural and commercial cla...
