On Saturday night he ol>pened wit/h what might be termned a regular Scotch song. It was what you expected. It was the Lauder of the gramaphone. Then came "l)oughie," something so different, not only in costume but in characterisation and construction, that you wondered wh4t weuld come next. And apart from the delicacy of the artistry you realised the touch of genius in the simplicity. Tie audience did not laugh because Lauder looked funny.

CHEAP FUEL [Newspaper Article] — News — 6 August 1923
CHEAP FUEL "Engineer": The basis of all industry is fuel. I write in answer to your ar ticle on essential fuel in your issue of July 25. You mentioned that South Australia wau~s at the mercy of the New South Wales coal mines. I wish to state that such is not the case, considering we have millions of tonls of coal in this State. Our manufactories must recog nise there is no universal fuel for power purposes. An excellent fuel in one coun try may be unsatisfactory in another, owing to high costs. We must use our locally produced fuel, and save high transport charges. We must learn that cheap fuel is good fuel if only utilised properly. New South Wales coal is not all good coal, and expensive, and some no better than our brown coal. Large coal users should buy and only pay for the calorific value of the fuel, and learn that use is second nature with fuel as other things. In almost every country fuel is different in value, as we.ll as substance. In Great Britain there are many classes o...

THE FAR NORTH [Newspaper Article] — News — 6 August 1923
THE FAR NORTH Mir. P. Millington: A year ago the New State movement was a plank in the C.P. platform. Speaking in Ade laide Town Hall Dr. Earle Page, re ferring to this plank, stated that Bri tain had learned this lesson bitterly and thoroughly per medium U.S.A. War of Independence. Australia apparently is iucarable of learning it. Continuing, Dr. Page indicated that the question was often' asked, why hand the reins of government to a mere hand ful of people? His answer was, "Well, what about the Imperial Government and yourselves?" I was so much impressed by that reply and the timely valuable article in "The Mail" on Australia's far north, that I am anxious to pursue the mat ter a little farther. South Australia is said to be the wealthiest State 'in the world on 'avcrage per capita. In all the eastern States and also in Western Australia, South Australians have given a lead in wheatgrowing that has been gladly, gratefully followed, "making the wilderness (i.e., the Mallee) flouris...

Pushed Out South African Veterans PREFERENCE REFUSED [Newspaper Article] — News — 6 August 1923
Pushed Out South African Veterans PREFERENCE REFUSED South African soldiers do not come under preference to returned soldiers in Covernment estimation. Mr. TV. Eltringham, a South African veteran, who has been employed as a casual letter carrier at Ballarat for T:S years, has been dismissed by the Postal Department to make room for a re turned soldier. A similar case happened at the Ade laide Post Office some time ago.

"I thrashed the matter out with the Public Service Commissioner and the Government when I was in the Senate," remarked Col. J. Rowel, president of the association, "but the Government said there was no redress. The stand it seems to take is that...
