GENERAL STRIKE PROPOSAL Deputation AI) Paid Organiser* Perth. February 20. Before leaving for Canberra to-night. the leader of the Senate Opposition (Sir George Pearce) referred to the A.C.T.U. deputation to Canberra to advocate a general strike against the Federal Court's wage reduction decision. He said that the names of the member-s of the deputation were informative. "Every member of the deputation,*" Sir George said, "is a paid organiser of a union and the AC.T.O. is largely made up of paid organisers or paid secre taries. In the event of a strike not one of them would lose his Job or bis wages. Yet these men profess to re present the opinions of hundreds of thousands of men and women hi work and earning wages, and who. if stam peded into striking, would lose their jobs and swell the unemployment market To suggest a general strike at a time like this, when Australia is struggling in a desperate plight. Is the talk of irresponsible fanatics."

Universe Like Soap Bubble, Scientist Says [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 21 February 1931
Universe Like Soap Bubble, Scientist Says WE are living in a world inflated like a soap bubble," is the alarm- ing statement of the noted scientist, Sir James Jeans, who says the nuiverse takes the form of an incapacity to stand still. "TT is easy to blow a soap babble, bat far less easy to keep It in existence for more than a minute or two; after that it is apt suddenly to burst and disappear."

If we ere not acquainted with the whole of space, it seems probable that we ?shall be before very long . . ." "Recently there has been a develop ment of a sensational kind.
