WHERE IS NIEMEYER AGREEMENT? "All Premiers Siganed," Says Sir David Gordon [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 2 March 1931
WHERE IS NIEMEYER AGREEMENT? "All Premiers Siganed," Says Sir David Gordon "Where is the Niemeyer agreement?" asked Sir David Gordon, leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council. "All the Premiers signed it, and those signatures should be honored." Sir David said he was surprised and disappointed that, after putting his signature to the Niemeyer plan, and thereby pledging the State to pursue the road of honor, the Premier had committed himself—he hoped only ten tatively—to the latest of many of Mr. Theodore's schemes for evading Aus tralia's definite obligations. No mat ter what conditions may have been imposed, the proposal was for straight out inflation, he said. It would lead to inevitable repudiation. "If adopted ultimately," Insisted Sir David." the plan is bound to debase the currency, and cause a heavy fall in Government and public securities in which the majority of holders are small investors. Australian credit has al ready been seriously injured by merely ta'k abou...
"UNADULTERATED INFLATION" LIBERAL PRESIDENT AND FARMERS' ATTITUDE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 2 March 1931
"UNADULTERATED INFLATION" LIBERAL PRESIDENT AND FARMERS' ATTITUDE "I do not think this clever scheme to catch the fanners will succeed," said the president of the Liberal Federa- tion (Mr. Duncan, M.L.C.) yesterday. "The latest Theodore plan is pure, un adulterated inflation, but under another name. "It seems to be an ingenious political move to capture the support of farmers by promising them assistance. it is an obvious trick designed to make the fanners believe that the only way they will be able to get any assistance is to agree to inflation, out of which they will get a small percentage. "I am wailing Jor fuller details about the support of the Premiers of South Australia and Victoria, Meanwhile, I am at a loss to understand why they are now supporting what they have jreviously opposed 60 strongly."
SCULLIN MINISTRY'S POSITION Continued from page 9 MR. BUTLER'S VIEW HOW FARMERS COULD BE HELPED [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 2 March 1931
SCULLIN MINISTRY'S POSITION Continued from page 9 MR. BUTLER'S VIEW HOW FARMERS COULD BE HELPED The leader of the Opposition (Mr. Butler) said that he, with all right- thinking citizens, viewed with grave concern the plan of the Federal Trea- surer for a fiduciary note issue of £18,000,000. It was the worst of all the schemes yet submitted, and he was astounded that such a scheme should have met with the approval of Mr. Hill and Mr. Hogan. These Premiers had been commended by all classes of the community, including their political op ponents, for the stand they had taken to prevent a policy of inflation being adopted, but It appeared that they had thrown in the towel at the crucial mo ment. 'Whether Mr. Hill's changed atti tude was due to the pressure of caucus and the Labor Conference, or to the persuasiveness of Mr. Theodore, was a matter for conjecture. Mr. Hill said that Mr. Theodore's method was in tended as a stimulant; surely he must realise that all stimulants are dan gerous...

While returning from a party at South Yarra, Mr. Freeman was driving, according to his companions, about 30 miles an hour in a northerly direction along St. KUda-road. When they reached the end of that road Gough, who was sitting in .the back seat, sud denly leaned forward and warned Free man that he was going directly towards a tramways standard. Freeman hastily turned the steering wheel, but as he &lt;xid so, his sleeve caught in the hand throttle and the car bounded forward and struck the post with terrific force.

MR. HILL'S POSITION Supports Controlled Inflation FEDERAL RESPONSIBILITY [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 2 March 1931
MR. HILL'S POSITION Supports Controlled Inflation FEDERAL RESPONSIBILITY The Premier (Mr. Hill) regards Mr. Theodore's proposal for a fidu- ciary note issue of £18,000,000 as controlled inflation and declares that he Kill not support uncon trolled or unlimited inflation. Emphasising that the whole respon sibility for financing Australian Gov ernments was on the Federal Ministry, Mr. will said it would be time enough, to criticise the Federal Ministry's latest plan when the legislation was submit ted to the Federal Parliament. Mr. Theodore would then make a lull state ment. Asked to define bis position, Mr. Hill, who had just returned from the Pre miers' Conference, said his support of the proposed legislation by the Federal Government—he preferred to put ic that way, rather than call is the Theo dore plan—was conditional on certain things being done. These conditions were:— That the Commonwealth Government must make a definite declaration that expenditure would be reduced. That the ...
PEOPLE MUST HAVE CONFIDENCE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 2 March 1931
PEOPLE MUST HAVE CONFIDENCE "The kernel of the whole thing is that a fiduciary note issue would be a matter of printing notes without us saying that We are prepared to mort- gage ourselves to pay back, as was done in the case of the mark in Ham burg during the inflation period in Germany," said Professor C. S. fflrfc*, of the University, yesterday. Professor Hicks declared that the report of the interview with him which was published in "The Advertiser" on Saturday, did not properly convey me impression of conditions in Germany and Austria when he lived there for some years after the war. So bad had the position become, ne said, that the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce took the situation in hand. It mortgaged all of its business pro perties and going concerns and issued debentures against them. So good was that form of currency regarded that, although it was legal tender only in Hamburg, its use eventually spread beyond the borders of that free State. "This brings us to what I regarded ...

LONDON BAFFLED BY OUR POLITICS Waits on Cabinet To Show Hand EXCHANGE RATE DROP NOT LIKELY LONDON, February 28. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 2 March 1931
LONDON BAFFLED BY OUR POLITICS Waits on Cabinet To Show Hand EXCHANGE RATE DROP NOT LIKELY LONDON, February 28. London hardly knows what to think of Australian politics now. A new policy seems to be put forward every day. The city is waiting for Cabinet to disclose its hand to Parliament nert week. Mr. Theodore's latest plan for a fiduciary issue of £18,000,000 has passed almost without comment in some quar ters, but it is generally agreed that it has sounded the death knell to an early alleviation of the exchange position. It was beyond doubt that the outside ex change market had virtually dried up. An interesting theory is that the reason for this is the fear of the specu lator that he might be caught by sud den developments. * "Well-informed operators in the c'.ty regard the Commonwealth fiduciary currency proposal as a political ges ture," says the "Financial Times." "They are convinced that the policy will not be countenanced either by the banks or the Senate." The article adds...

LOOK BOTH WAYS ARE YOU PLAYING THE GAME? A TALK TO BOYS AND GIRLS The movement for the institu- tion of a Look Both Ways Club with the object of lessening the number of street accidents, has been a phenomenal success. Over 50.000 members have been enrolled in this State. The Director of Education (Air. W. 3. Adey) has agreed to the adoption of a con stitution which should be the means of maintaining interest in j all schools. (By "The Twinkler") Boys and Girls —There is no doubt that since the starting of the Look Both" Ways Club you have, as a body, done very well in carrying out the motto of the club. You have been: more alert when crossing lanes, lines and roads, have looked both ways be fore stepping from the footpath, and have done quite a lot to assist in avoid ing accidents. As a result, there are not now so many accidents with chil dren. But there is still much* to be done; quite a number of boys and girts are not play- ? the game. Here are some examples; l —A boy steps from...
HIGHER WOOL PRICES DEMAND BY MANUFACTURERS LONDON, March 1. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 2 March 1931
HIGHER WOOL PRICES DEMAND BY MANUFACTURERS LONDON, March 1. The "Economist." discussing the pro- bability of higher wool prices, paints out that consumption is by no means unsatisfactory. Low prices have inten- sified the demand and manufacturers are reverting to wool from artificial fabrics in the production of worsteds to meet the increasing demand. Stocks of fine wools overseas are not abnormally high. That there will be reduced production of Australian wool in the next two years because of the reduction of flocks is not surprising. MR. DEVERECX'S REPORT IjONDON, February 28. The official representative in London of the Australian Woolgrowere' Council (Mr. W. P. Devereaux) reports that the more confident tone of the wool market a4; manufacturing centres has con tinued. This, he says, had been re flected in overseas markets, stimulating demand for both Merino and crossbred tops. Yorkshire topmakers" quotations for Merinos were firmer, with some business at increased prices. The ou...

MR. GABB WARNS FARMERS Savs Fiduciary Issue Will Hit Them ATTACKS MR. HILL "Inflation, under the name of fiduciary currency, has been again pressed to the fore, and I appeal to the fanning community not to be caught by this stuff." said Mr. J. M. Gabb, BLHJL, at the Angas ton show on Saturday. Inflation would mean increased costs, he said, and the farmer would have to sell his products overseas at world deflated values. "What amazes me is that the Premier (Mr. Hill) has swung right round from the course he has previously taken against inflation,'* Mr. Gabb added. "In conversation with Mr. Hill, he has not given me the impression that be is an in flationist. If. by talcing this step. Mr. Hill hopes to placate the implacables of the Trades Hall, he will find within the next few weeks that even this turn-about will not be satisfactory to them." Double-barrelled Proposal There was going to be a campaign on this thing, Mr. Gabb said emphati cally. Mr. Theodore's proposal was a double-bar...

AIR THRILLS PAGEANT AT BRISBANE Brisbane, March 1. The Australian Plying Corps Associa- tion held an air pageant at Eagle Farm on Saturday, when thousands of spec- tators enjoyed a number of thrills, not the least of which was an exhibition of crazy flying by Messrs. Ken Frevr.n and H. Mollinson. Captain Ehro made a parachute de scent from 1,200 feet. He dropped about 100 feet before he opened his para chute, descended rapidly and struck the ground heavily. He was taken to a pri vate hospital suffering from light con cussion, but was discharged this morn ing. Pilot Injured Soon after, while Captain Matheson was sending cold chills down the spines of the crowd with crazy flying stunts, Mr. Frewin took off and had risen about 40 feet when his engine cut out- Stalling his machine to avoid hitting the crowd, he made a sharp turn and crashed on to his left wing, jumping clear just as the machine touched the ground.
