Monetary and Commercial DEPRECIATED POUND Importers Affected By THE CITY EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
Monetary and Commercial DEPRECIATED POUND Importers Affected By THE CITY EDITOR Importers to Australia of goods from &nbsp; countries other than Great Britain, in addition to hoping for an improve- ment in the exchange rate between Australia and London, are looking for- &nbsp; ward eagerly to sterling becoming more &nbsp; stable in its relationship to the curren- &nbsp; cies of the countries with which they &nbsp; are trading. &nbsp; Commercial men are in a quandary &nbsp; as a result of the wide and frequent &nbsp; fluctuations in the rates quoted for &nbsp; &nbsp; sterling, and, as a consequence, in &nbsp; &nbsp; many instances are withholding orders &nbsp; &nbsp; and awaiting some clarification of the position before doing business. It is pointed out that, as the rate of exchange between Australia and London has remained unchanged, companies and individuals wishing to r...

WHAT WE PAY FOR SUGAR EMBARGO White Australia Policy LONDON, September 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
WHAT WE PAY FOR SUGAR EMBARGO White Australia Policy LONDON, September 28. Dr. C. M. Yonge, in an article in the "Empire Review," says North Queens- land producers are getting thrice the world's price for sugar, for which Aus- tralians are paying. The white Aus- tralia policy in North Queensland is maintained only by a gigantic subsidy from the remainder of Australia. While prosperous. Australians might, not un- reasonably, have been expected to pay a high price for the maintenance of a white Australia, but now, like most white countries, she has fallen on evil days, and some time will elapse before her former prosperity will be regained. "Will she be able to continue this gigantic subsidy?" asks Dr. Yonge. "If the sugar embargo is dropped, practic- ally the whole of North Queensland will be ruined, and the immense sums spent on its development wasted. This is unthinkable. Wages must be drastically reduced, thus raising the important question whether the whites can be induced to do ...

ITALIAN 24-HOUR TRIAL [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
ITALIAN 24-HOUR TRIAL Bad roads and inclement weather during the night were responsible for many of the retirements in the fourth 24-hour reliability trial recently pro- moted by the Milan Motor Club. It was run over a mountainous course of 1035 kilometres. Of the 106 entrants who started only 51 finished British, Italian, and German makes of ma- chines were well represented in this &nbsp; event, which is regarded as one of the Italian classics, and it is interesting to record that Signors P. Berardi and P. Opessi, both on Triumphs, were the only two riders of any one make to finish the course without loss of marks. Berardi was declared the winner.
TRIP TO MELBOURNE ONLY "JOY RIDE" Proposed Christmas Rally [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
TRIP TO MELBOURNE ONLY 'JOY RIDE' Proposed Christmas Rally 'A trip to Melbourne on motor cycles nowadays is only a two-day joy ride,' an official of the M.C.C. of S.A. said at the general meeting on Thurs- day. Mr. A. Moyle was discussing the pos- sibility of the club conducting a Christ- mas rally to Melbourne this year. He recalled that many years ago such a rally was held, and the cyclists had a great reception in Victoria. The matter had been held over from the last general meeting, when the Queensland club notified its intention of joining the run in the event of its being held. This week Tasmania also wrote to the M.C.C. intimating its wil- lingness to join. Thursday's meeting decided to ap- point a committee to report. Messrs. F. Barr. A. J. Moyle. H. Leaney, and W. J. Murphy were elected to the sub- committee, which has convened a meet- ing for noon tomorrow. Possibility of Reliability Trial The possibility of a reliability trial from Adelaide to Melbourne was also considere...
BELGIAN BOL DO'R DE VISE [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
BELGIAN BOL D'OR DE VISE A Triumph o.h.v. model was classified first in the recent Belgian Bol d'or de Vise (24-hour speed trial), finishing 300 kilometres in advance of the runner up, and averaging 60 k.p.h. for the whole of the 24 hours, a speed which could have been increased, if, at any time, the rider had been menaced by other competitors. The strenuous nature of the course may be judged by the fact that, while 24 competitors started, only nine finished. A straight piece of board, some 6 ft. long, may be used to test the align- ment of the wheels; this board, when laid along the wheelbase as high up as the design of the machine will permit, should touch each tyre in two places.
