BASEBALL VALLEYS WIN FINAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
BASEBALL VALLEYS WIN FINAL. Valleys defeated Greys at Graceville on Saturday in the final of the knockout baseball competition. This gave Valleys the record of being undefeated for the season. The standard of play was on a high plane, and both teams could not open their account until Schwenke crossed the plate for Valleys in the fourth inn- ings. The Valley team were combining well, and they profited by Greys' poor fielding and bad throwing to the bases. Scores:— Valleys: 0, 0, 0, 2, 2, 8, 4, 12—28. &nbsp; Greys: 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 1—3.

GROUND FOR TEST. LONDON, August 25. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
GROUND FOR TEST. LONDON, August 25. Mr. Harry Sunderland attended the Broughton Rangers' new ground at Belle- vue (Manchester) with the League Coun- cil to arrange the Test prices. He agreed to 2/ minimum to half a guinea for bookable seats, the lay-out of the ground giving a possible £5000 gate if 40,000 attend. The Kangaroos' manager called for tapes to measure the width of the playing area, ascertaining that from touch to touch it is five yards narrower than the Australian grounds, thus necessi- tating care in planning team tactics for fast wing play. Mr. Sunderland jok- ingly taunted Mr. Hutchins with the remark that "England can make it narrower while fast wings like Smith are available."

THE COURIER-MAIL. Its Service to the Public. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
THE COURIER-MAIL. Its Service to the Public. A newspaper is a living organ-] ism that draws much of its vitality from the community it serves. But also it gives back vitality. It is part of the cor- porate and constructive conscious- ness of a city, a State, and a nation. Its function is the daily' assimilation of the inchoate mass i * action and thought borne on the ceaseless curfent of life. This it reduces to order and proportion,! gives to it a significance, and renders it back in a form to | enlighten, instruct, guide, and entertain the public that receives it. But this is not done mechani- cally. A newspaper has an individuality of its own, and its worth to a community is deter- mined by tile force and quality of that individuality. A newspaper must have strength of character to be a vital influence, to be equal to its great responsibilities, and to inspire trust among the people it serves. It must have traditions to cherish and a reputation to guard. The Courier-Mail is pre- ...
League of Nati[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
League of Nations &nbsp; &nbsp; Some persons are in the habit of complaining about the League of &nbsp; Nations because it has not suc- ceeded in preventing wars and because the nations have not dis- armed. But they fail to take into &nbsp; account the many fine things that &nbsp; the League has done-not spec- tacular things, perhaps, but things that are very useful to the world. &nbsp; The League is well worth the money that is spent upon it. If it &nbsp; were a failure, as some persons suppose it to be, we should not &nbsp; find serious men, such as the mem- bers of the Government of the United Kingdom, bothering their heads about it. But members of that Government are not only officially supporting the League but also personally interesting themselves in its business. They like the work because they know it is good. Let us all remember that some good to mankind must come from the meetings of the members of the League...
Wheat Agreement. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
Wheat Agreement. After considerable discussion and negotiation the International Wheat Conference, at which 29 nations were represented, has reached an agreement upon Hie vexed and complicated problem of wheat exports. The weakness of any such agreement is the impos- sibility of determining the nature of the seasons; and for ti"*-' reason it is very doubtful if the agreement will stand the test of i time. In any circumstances, how- ever, it is gratifying that the agreement will not affect Aus- tralia's wheat export trade, at all events for the next two seasons. Whatever the United States and Canada may be able to do in the way of limiting their wheat har- vests, it is clear that Australia must continue growing wheat. The United States is a creditor nation (not a debtor nation as Australia is) ; she owes no other nation heavy annual interest payments, and to an extent much greater, than Australia is she is self-con- tained. Whether any of the sub-j scribing nations will adhere strict...

BATTLED TO VICTORY. ST. HELEN'S. August 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
BATTLED TO VICTORY. (From Claude Corbett.) ST. HELEN'S. August 26. Australia battled Its way to victory in tho first match of the tour, winning by 13 points to 9 over St. Helen's Recrea- tion, one of the most solid teams in Eng- land, after having been behind 6-3 at half time. The "Recs." put up a line fight with 12 men nearly all the time, as Laithwaite left the field, suffering from concussion, 10 minutes- after the start. When the Australians had gained a 13-6 advantage it seemed that they would win easily, but the "Recs." came at them solidly in the last quarter oí an hour. Even thon the tourists had ill-fortune, as Thicknesse crossed the line only to hear the whistle, Dooner having been penalised for obstruction - a hair-line de- cision. Twice Prigg looked sure to score, but was thrown out in the corner each time when a pass in-fleld would have meant certain tries. Cliff, Pearce was the outstanding player making glorious runs irom 60 and 70 yards, with Ridley on the wing, and T...

HEAVY SPENDING. Japanese Navy. ? TREATY PARITY. Japan is spending' enormous sums to bring her navy to full treaty parity with the British and American navies, even to the ex- tent of threatening the country with bankruptcy. (Australian Cable Service.) LONDON, August 26. The "Financial Times" reports that I the Japanese trade guilds will sup- port the Government in sending a trade mission to South America and elsewhere to drive out British goods if Britain fails to satisfy Japan at the forthcoming conversations, from which Japan hopes to obtain little. All the Japanese trade profits at present are being sunk in armaments, and Japan is spending enormous sums to bring her navy to full treaty parity with the British and American navies, even to the extent of threatening the country with bankruptcy. Britain and America, it is considered, are unlikely to enter into agreements in the inter- ests of Japanese trade unless Japan agrees to a disarmament policy, en- abling the raising of revenu...
