IN CONSCIENCE. ETHICS OF CASKET. MR. HANLON'S DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 1 September 1933
IN CONSCIENCE. ETHICS OF CASKET. MR. HANLON'S DEFENCE. "I believe that the ethics of invest- ment in the Golden Casket is a mat- ter for one's own conscience," said the Home Secretary (Mr. E. M. Han- lon) last night. "No one should ever invest a shilling that he cannot afford, but if he is investing amuse- ment money or spare cash there is nothing sinful or anti-social in sub sciibing to a lottery." Mr. Hanlon was speaking at the weekly tea of the Brisbane branch of Toe H. Gambling entered into the life of every one, he con- tinued. It was seen on the stock exchange, in wheat, wool, rubber, and all sorts of products. No public voice was raised against that. Then there was gambling on insurance. He could not see any distinction between a ship-owner gambling £1,000,000 on the safety of a ship and a working man investing a shilling in the Golden Casket. Again, whenever land was thrown open for selection in Queens- land it was by a lottery. They could not class any custom or habit a sin...

PROFESSOR SHOT. Suspected Nazi Crime. (Australian Press Association.) LONDON, August 31. The Prague correspondent of the British United Press telegraphs that two shots which wore fired through a window by an unknown person killed Dr. Theodore Lessing (the former Professor of Philosophy at the Hanover University) at his home at Marienbad, where he had lived since April. Dr. Lessing, who was 61 years of age, was a strong opponent of the Nazis. [After the war D)r. Lessing was appointed a lecturer, and later a pro- fessor, at the Technical College in Hanover. In the spring of 1925 he came before the public in connection with the growing hostility towards him of the Hanover students.

During the winter session, 1925-26 he was given leave of absence at his own request, but when he began to lecture again in May, the students...

WILL IT WORK? Wheat Agreement. "IFS" AND "WHENS." (Australian Cable Service.) LONDON, August 31. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 1 September 1933
WILL IT WORK? Wheat Agreement. "IFS" AND 'IWHENS." (Australian Cable Service.) LONDON, August 31. In expressing doubt whether the International Wheat Agreement will ever work, the "Financial News," in a leader, comments: "The scheme bristles with 'ifs' and 'whens.' Australia has not explained how she proposes to re- duce her production without cutting her acreage or accumulating stocks. Perhaps when the manifold difficul- ties have been solved, shelved, or evaded, it may be realised that re- striction is not the better part of valour, but that the unfettered work- ing of supply and demand still has its virtues, though it means cheap bread for the millions and less lime- light for the politicians." "MOMENTOUS ACHIEVEMENT." WASHINGTON, August 30. The Secretary for Agriculture (Mr. Henry Wallace) said to-night that the International Wheat Agreement would limit the exports of Canada to 200, 000,000 bushels, of the United States to 47,000,000 bushels, Argentina to 110,000,000 bushels, an...
