WILL SHE FEDERATION PARIS. January 6. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931
WILL SHE FEDERATION PARIS. January 6. camera was appraised of his sus- pension to-day when stepping off the train at the Gare du Nord. He re- torted, "I shall immediately prosecute the Federation fnr slander, claiming £5.550 damages." Mr. Leon See. the manager for Cam era, said—"When the International Boxing Union and the associated bodies learn the facts they will cancel the suspension immediately. The federa tion cannot suspend Primo. because it has never recognised m? it cannot fine him for a non-appearance, because, though I signed the contract, I was not recognised as his legal manager. The Federation, after promising us an aero plane to take us to Barcelona for the Paoling fight in November, said it could not supply a machine, and sug gested that Primo should take a boat. I argued, but the Federation said, It's a case of force majeure,' so I cancelled the Florence exhibition."
BARRIER COMMUNISTS AGAINST SETTLEMENT OF TROUBLE Broken Hill January 7 [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931
BARRIER COMMUNISTS AGAINST SETTLEMENT OF TROUBLE Broken Hill January 7 The attendance at the meeting of the Workers' Industrial Union last night was so great that it took place in the open-air stadium. Much interest was taken in the meeting by members, as it was rumored yesterday that Communists intended to move a motion that mem bers should refrain from attending the mass meeting of unionists affiliated with the Industrial Council on Friday next, when the council will recom mend the acceptance of tiie mining companies' offer. The matter of refraining from at tending the meeting was narrowly de feated. Communists organised throughout the day and urged, mem bers to attend, but they were defeated in the vote by about half a dozen. It is now reported that the Com munists will attempt to break up the mass meeting on Friday, but there is a general feeling that the Industrial Council will win. It is still feared that another attempt will be made by a section of the men to prevent members ...

Mr. Lyell and his passenger had barely extricate...
VIEWS AND COMMENTS INTENSIVE LAND CULTURE OPENINGS FOR YOUTHS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931
VIEWS AND COMMENTS INTENSIVE LAND CULTURE OPENINGS FOR YOUTHS To the Editor I am, Sir, &c., P. G. AYRES. Narrung. Sir—The Bey. S. Forsyth and friends deserve thanks for their work at Kuitpo, Of course, the scheme is a success only as an object lesson of what can be done in a larger way. It rs up to the Government now to ampliiy it and apply it to the thousands of unemployed men anxious to mate homes od the land. If the Govern ment ask for, and are willing to con sider, suggestions to this end, there can be no doubt tliat a method win quickly be evolved that will enable them to settle many families on the land without undue >?:rH?*iip to tbe taxpayer. There is ample undeve loped and partially developed land in the State with a good and reliable rain fall, very suitable for mixed farming, and lt wfll be chiefly by mixed farm ing that the State will be enabled to overcome unemployment and pay tts way. It la fatuous to expect our secondary industries to revive to any extent, ...

OBTAINING BETTER PERFORMANCE HOW TO RAISE THE COMPRESSION RATIO SIMPLEST WAT TO ENLIVEN OLD MACHINES [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931
OBTAINING BETTER PERFORMANCE HOW TO RAISE THE COMPRESSION RATIO SIMPLEST WAT TO ENLIVEN OLD MACHINES Most motor cyclists who look on their machines as more than a means to an end have wished from time to time to get that extra snap and performance which makes all the difference between the sports model and the veteran tourer. theas Raising compression explained in this article is the best way to increase the efficiency of an old machine. Being the simplest and usually the most certain means by which the ama teur mechanic can obtain a little more snap from his engine, one often ' finds him removing any compression ' plates that are fitted, purchasing a * special high-compression piston, or I poring over the problem of how many millimetres must be machined off the ? cylinder base to raise the ratio by the desired amount. Where no compression plate is fit- ' ted the easiest way of putting up ? the ratio is by the use of a special J piston. In this case the weight and ' travel of the ne...

INCREASED EXCHANGE RATE FURTHER RESTRICTION OF IMPORTS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931
INCREASED EXCHANGE RATE FURTHER RESTRICTION OF IMPORTS To the Editor I am, Sir, &c., FRED O. HUNT, Gilberton. Sir-The average citizen in Austra- lia seldom troubles himself with finch Questions as international bank ex- change, but the decision of the banks here to raise tbe rate of exchange on London to 15 per coit. is a matter that will affect every buyer of im ported goods and every taxpayer . throughout Australia. It is pretty safe to say that the extra 6 per cent, in exchange on overseas remittances will mean a certain 10 per cent, increase at least an the prloe of aA imparted goods to the purchaser who boys retail, and a large increase on both Federal and State income taxes. Nothing that any private citizen can do can affect the question of pay ing increased income taxes through this cause; this will be absolutely un avoidable witb the huge extra stuns that both Federal and State Treasurers will have to pay to remit interest over seas; but it Is quite definitely within...
"MORALS OF ROME" DUTIES OF MOTHERS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931
"MORALS OF ROME" DUTIES OF MOTHERS To the Editor I am, Sir, &c., DAISY MARTIN. Mitcham. Sir—Any true Christian is alarmed, as well as the Rev. J. Blacket, at the moral outlook. He is a true prophet, and we owe him a debt of gratitude for his warnings. Women of to-day have much to answer for, especially the mothers. Old-fashioned people dirsHk-p to see women copying men's ways, but nine-tenths of their objec tions are based, not on any undervalue ing of women, but on their great rever ence and admiration for a womanly woman as the fairest and holiest of God's works; hence the dislike and ob jection of many men to see a woman smoke. Seventeen years ago Professor Seeley, in his book. "Natural Religion." maintained that the English people had ceased t*? have any ideal for their chil dren. One m'sht suppose that most mothers have the same desire about their children that Oliver Cromwell had about his regiment, "Give me a man that hath principle,*' the strict sense of duty. Becaus...
TARIFF ABUSES CHARGES THAT ARE MADE To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931
TARIFF ABUSES CHARGES THAT ARE MADE To the Editor I am, Sir, &c., C. C. BELCHEK. Flinders-street. Sir—I had sent to me from the Continent, a number of price lists and directions, which the Government call advertising matter, for which I am charged 3/7. The weight is about 2 lb. The tariff is as nearly as possible one shil ling on each pound weight. Then there are a second tariff of 1/4, and a charge of'3d. for the Government opening the parcel; they call it (for the want of a better term) "handling.*' Is it any wonder we are the laughing stock of the Continent, and that reprisals are resorted to?
MINIATURE BATTLEFIELD BLACK ANTS AT WAR To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931
MINIATURE BATTLEFIELD BLACK ANTS AT WAR To the Editor. I am, Sir, &c., EDWARD CUTLER. Charles-street, Norwood. Sir, —On Tuesday morning I was greatly interested In what seemed to be a real war among ordinary black ants. The scene of the conflict was on a concrete floor, under the vines of a back verandah. My wife called me to see the sitcht. The place was like a human battlefield in miniature. About S ft. by 2 ft. of the passage-way was used for the struggle. At the time I saw it the fight was nearly over. Single ants were lying about apparently in death agony. The floor was strewn with pairs, and fours, and sixes, alii buncbed together, and motionless, seemingly dead. Here and .there two ants oould he -seen In fierce death grips. While rolling over and over they would collide with another fight ing pair, and thus make a traartet; a-*ain ano'her pair would roll into them, and a sextet was formed in a fight to the "bitter end." On a space of one foot square I counted 150 dead...
MEAT RATIONS CONSIDERATION FOR THE POOR To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931
MEAT RATIONS CONSIDERATION FOR THE POOR To the Editor I am, Sir, &c., W. ROBERT GREY. Sir—The master butchers are repor- ted to be complaining of the ac- tion of the Supply and Tender Board in respect to meat rations. With sheep at the present price (and they are not likely to become dearer), 4d- per lb. is quite a satisfactory price, and should show a fair profit over and above j working expenses. Whilst many butchers j*re giving tbe unfortunate a good deal, some are not so con siderate. A short time ago I saw a ticket for 7 lb. of meat ten dered. The boy said, "Beef, please." "No beef," was the gruff reply, and 7 lb. of neck and backbone of sheep, with scarcely a square inch of meat, was wrapped up and given to the boy. On another occasion I was asked to weieh a 7-lb. parcel of ration meat. I did so, and found 4 lb. of bone and 3 lb. of meat. I am surprised at Mr: Dickson's statement about "12 cuts, or serves to fill a 7-lb. ordsr." I realise the diffi culty of th 3 job th...
