BARRAGE BROKEN. BARGES ON SEINE. SETTLEMENT MOVE. PARIS, August 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
BARRAGE BROKEN. BARGES ON SEINE. SETTLEMENT MOVE. PARIS, August 26. Directing a secretly concentrated force of 100 mounted police, 40 fire- men equipped with four motor pumps, and two tugs manned with 50 blue- jackets, - tlie Prefect of Seine et Oise broke the barrage of three rows of barges,' which had been linked to- gether by the striking bargees at Con flàns to block the River Oise, The boarding party cut the cables linking 60 barges, which the tugs then towed into a backwater. The bargees - assisted the tugs upon the Prefect promising to place their griev- ances before the Government. The Prefect then faced the problem of dispersing the main ban-age of 200 barges at Eragno, where the strikers had threatened to fill the barges with cement and sink them in the River Oise. Eventually the police later dis- persed the barrage without resistance. In an Interview the Minister of Public WTorks (M. Pierre Paganon) stated that he believed a basis for settlement had been reached.

CARE NEEDED. MOTOR SPIRIT BILL. PROTECTING PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
CARE NEEDED. MOTOR SPIRIT BILL. PROTECTING PUBLIC. Following the announcement by the Premier (Mr. W. Forgan Smith) that the Government intended to pass legis- lation making it compulsory to add a certain percentage of power alcohol to all motor spirit consumed in Queens- land, the Royal Automobile Club of Queensland set up a special committee to investigate all aspects of the pro- posal. The committee included tech- nical experts in chemistry, engineer- ing, and sugar, as well as other com- mercial and professional members. The club has now forwarded the committee's report to the Premier. In a covering letter it says that the com- mittee approached the subject with an open mind, .and in full sympathy with the idea of producing in Queensland as much as possible of the State's own requirements of motor spirit. "We are satisfied that up to 15 per cent, is a perfectly practicable mixture of power alcohol with motor spirit," the report states. "It is right that we should use locally prod...

LIVE ON EMU FLESH. Russia's Millions. IMPORT AUSTRALIAN BIRDS. A Russian zoologist has a plan for importing Australian emus to provide meat for the nation. (Australian Cable service.) LONDON. August 27. 1 According to the "Sunday Times" Russia's rheat problem will be solved by the importation of Australian emus. I The scheme has been advanced by Professor Manneuffel, superintendent of the Moscow 2!oo, who proposes that 1000 pairs of Australian emus shall be imported. Each female, with the help of Incubators, would oe capable of raising 15 young annually, and each young bird, at 2è years, he estimated, will provide the proletariat with 901b. of succulent and savoury meat. | Tile emus will eat vitaminous waste, on which the professor says they can I thrive even in Moscow's/suburbs. It is intended, however, that the main I droves shall roam at large on the South Russian steppes. 1 Other suggested meat supplies in- clude whale, shark, sea elephant, por- poise, cormorant, and eider duck....
"YOURS AND MINE." Princess and Sir J. Barrie. LONDON, August 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
"YOURS AND MINE.' Princess and Sir J. Barrie. LONDON, August 26. "The most gracious lady in the Sir James Barrie. land recently paid me a com- pliment," said Sir James Barrie, the famous author, speaking at a bazaar at Kirriemuir, and referring to Prin- cess Margaret's third birthday, which was cele- brated on Au- gust 21. "She was sitting," Sir James continued. "gazing, entranced at a birthday present, consisting of a toy table, with two painted flowerpots about" the size of a thimble. I said. 'Is that really yours ?

FISHING INDUSTRY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
FISHING INDUSTRY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir,-In following up my last letter, of the 7th instant, on the probablll-' ties and possibilities of the fish indus- try, there is no doubt much is to bo said on the matter, and perhaps a little further explanation may be of interest. According to the reports in the "Sunday Mail" and the "Courier," the Minister for Labour a'grees with me that there cannot, be a regular and sufficient supply of 'fish under the present methods. As I pointed out in my letter it can be done only by a trawler or trawlers with sufficient refrigeration space to deal with the catch. I will not be surprised if comment is made to the late state trawler to the effect that it was not a success. The trawler was not a failure, but the system under which it was worked was the fault. Trawl- ing on rocky ground and not using the proper mechanical appliance causes the loss of the trawl-nets, which cost about £70. If the crew had been on the share system or had bee...
MEANING OF INDOOROOPILLY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
MEANING OF INDOOROOPILLY. Sir,-I can support Mr. A. M'Con nel's statement in the' Courier of. the 23rd inst., as to the meaning of the place-name. Indooroopilly. It is derived from the words "nyinderu" and "pilla or billa," the former word meaning "leech," and the latter mean- ing "creek or gully." There seems to ' have been some confusion rs to the initial letter of the word, and the pecu- liar aboriginal dental diphthong "ny" has, no doubt, led to the use by the whites of the letter -'y" only, or to the initial letter being entirely dropped. Inter alia, I may mention i that the place-names Yeronga and | Yeerongpilly are derived from the word , "yarang," meaning sand, or fine gravel, I as distinguished from "darra," mean- ing stones. The former name should be Yarungga, the accents being on the I first and last syllables, and the latter should be Yarungpilly, the first mean- : ing sandy or gravelly, and the lal- ; ter sandy creek or gully. The generally accepted opinion, drawn from ...

ALTER BLADE SETTING. 'Plane Propellers. IMPORTANT BRITISH INVENTION. A British invention automatically alters the setting of aeroplane propeller, blades in flight. (Australian Cable Service.) LONDON, August 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
ALTER BLADE SETTING. 'Plane Propellers. -? IMPORTANT BRITISH INVENTION. A British invention automatically alters the setting of aeroplane pro- peller,, blades in flight. (Australian Cable Service.) LONDON, August 27. Tlie "Sunday Dispatch" says that a Gloucester firm has solved another major air problem by an invention which immensely increases the safety and efficiency of aeroplanes by auto- matically varying the propellers' pitch in flight. This enables the blades to automatically adjust themselves to the most efficient angle, preventing the engine over-running the machine, giv- ing longer life, and eliminating dam- age to the aeroplane, due to vibra- tion. Moreover, when landing, the propeller acts as a brake, permitting a landing to bo effected in a smaller space and at a steeper angle. | Tile discovery has important mili- tary value, enabling pilots in aerial combat to make prolonged dives at full ! throttle without risk of engine failure, while the aeroplane regains the level ...
