TRUST ACCOUNTS ACT. CAUSTIC CRITICISM. BRISBANE, January 3J. Much unfavourable comment on the Trust Accounts Act operating iu Queensland was made at a meeting of the Queensland division of the Federal Institute of Accountants to-night. ' Mr. J. Dunn eaid it was now the duty of the Institute to take immediute . stock of the Trust Accounts Act and to I ascertain what protection was afforded members.

THE LAND TAX. HIGH COURT JUDGMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 6 February 1930
THE LAND TAX. HIGH COURT JUDGMENTS. Our special representative at Canber ra writes: — The Commonwealth Commissioner --f Taxation, in his annual report, state? that the total number of taxable return h assessed in respect of land held as at .lune, 1028, was 23,855, and after al lowing for the 10 per cent reduction made in the rate by the Bruce-l'a^e Government the tax amounted to £2.988,885. Since the year ended June 30. 1918. there has been a. small but steady in crease, in the. number of taxpayers, due principally to the fact that the values of land generally have increased, with the result that some owners whose lauds formerly were valued «t or below the. general exemption of £5000 are now liable to taxation. Reference ia made to the appeals made, by Messrs. Clark. Tait and Co. and the Northampton Pastoral Co. on the point of law that the provisions of Section 28 (3) of the Land Tax Assessment Act 11110-14, under which they had been as sessed, did not apply to leases wbern a right...
RADIO RADIATED GOOD EARTHS ARE ESSENTIAL [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 6 February 1930
B&DIO RADIATED (By Aerial.) GOOD EARTHS ARE ESSENTIAL. By the term 'earth' in radio we mean the wire, plate, tubiug, pipe or what ever means used to effect direct clec-i trical connection between the receiver and the ground. The term is certainly rather vague in its precise meaning and application. Still, that is not our fault; there it is, and we have to accept it, expressing while doing so the hope that when wireless scientists turn their attention to the nomenclature of their art they will at least give us a better and more definite term by which to de note more effectively and accurately the function of the ground connection to the radio receiver. The precise function of the earth connection to a wireless receiving set is a difficult thing to explain simply] and without the use. of mathematical formulae. We may look upon the thing in two ways. Firstly, we may consider the transmitting station as a broadcaster of a continuous stream of electrical energy. A portion is pick...
