DOPING IN VICTORIA The Gunroom Case MELtUIURNE. Today. Several days probably will elapse before a report reaches the V.R.C. concerning the result of the analysis of the swabs of saliva taken from the mare Gunroom by Mr. S. O. Wood, veterinary surgeon. It will be neces sary to await the analyst's report before setting in train measures for the prevention of inteIference with horses on Melbourne courses. Some years ago a member of the committee of the V.IR.C., who has since retired from that position, was interviewed in his otlice by a. visitor from England. " havec," he' remarked with the utmost franknes3, 'a collection. of the best horse dopes used in Great Brl tain. WVill you introduce rne to trainers and nwners in order that I may place them here?" T'he reply Wa:s of such a nature that the visitor bolted out of the office. It was this:-"lf you give me your name and address I shall be happy to communicate with the V.RI.C. and see that you are criminally prose cuted."

BREACH. OF PROMISE Parents To Pay Damages UNIQUE FRENCH CASE (PUBLISHED IN "THE TIMES."). LONDON, July 24. "WVe've decided our son is too young to marry," wrote a Fronchman's parents to th!eir son's fiancee after a four years' engagement. The faithless . lover airily added:-"I bow: to the-. wish of my parents.. Adiou; be happy." As a sequel 15,000 francs in damages have been awarded to the girl, to be paid by the parents. This is the first time damages for breach of promise have been awarded in France, except in cases of seduction. The- judgmnent is based on an article in the civil code which states:-"Those causing damages to others .are held res p6nslble for reparation." Thiis, the Court said, establishes the responsibility of French parents in respect to a pro mise of marriage, and safeguards the dignity and material interests of. mar-' riageable girls. The Court pointed out that an unjustifiable breach prejudices a girl's chances of another marriage, and condemned the parents for...

GETTING OUT "THE NEWS" Great Record Established KEEPING FAITH WITH PUBLIC [Newspaper Article] — News — 25 July 1923
GETTING OUT "THE NEWS" Great Record Established KEEPING FAITH WITH PUBLIC Forced by failure of the electric pow-er into risking its reputation to keep faith with the public, *'The News" created a new Austraiasian record yesterday when, without having a preliminary run with the g*int presses, a 16-page paper was produced. Then, just when the human machinery was working like a well-oiled watch, the current failed again, and as a consequence, instead of Ieing out on the streets at 3 o'clock it was not until 4.30 p.m. that the Xir-' .papers came from the mechanical Solders. It was a day to be remembered. Fe low in the ma&lt;-chine room.were the G,1ss .'ister.-. with their intricate gear and mechanismi-forty thousands parts as sembled with intinite patience. Over and round them crawled blue-ccated, grimy figures adjusting the plates from which "The News" was to be printed. All the early morning copy had been sent to the linotypes and set, and the big rush of the days work was jus...

Hand On Helm of Australia COUNTRY PARTY Power Behind Scenes FEDERAL POSSIBILITIES MELBOURNE, To-day. [Newspaper Article] — News — 25 July 1923
Nand~L~ar~-- Power Behind Scenes FEDERAL POSSIBILITIES (By H. S. Gullett.) MELBOURNE, To-day. Dr. Earle Page will deliveri his first Budget speech in the House on Thurs day. The Federal Treasurer carries his re sponsibiiitles with a light air, and this morning he was, as is usual, all smiles. Dealing with scores of millions appears to be greatly to his liking. Naturally he does not feel disposed to give away any secrets in finance. From enquiries generally and from consideration of the figures, it would appear that, so far as taxation is concerned, the Budget may prove a little disappointing to the public. There is a talk of reduction of postage from twopenco to a penny .half penny, and the Government may make a strong bid for popular favor in this direction. But such reduction would mean a shrinkage of revenue, and the Postmater-General may deCidCe not to give relief but to increase facilities in other directions, such as to rural dis tricts. SYMPATHY FOR COUTJNTRY. Throughout the ...
OLYMPIC ROWING EIGHT Murray Bridge Claims VICTORIAN OPPOSITION MELBOURNE, Today. [Newspaper Article] — News — 25 July 1923
OLYMPIC ROWING EIGHT Murray Bridge Claims VICTORIAN OPPOSITION MELBOURNE, Today. "Despite the many fine feats of the Murray Bridge crew. I think Australia of a combined crew from the various of a combined crew from the carious States, a crew which, I venture to say, would prove superior, to the South Aus tralian combination. Probably they would surprise the world on the other side," said Mr. J. Macfarlane, coach of the Victorian Eight, and one of the se lectors in this State, when seen this morning. Mr. Macfarlane said he could realise that the Australian Olympic Council Swas faced with a sore problem in choos ine an eight-oar rowing crew,: in the ;l ice of a Federal. controlling body for rowing to advise it in its delibera tions, and for that reason he thought the Olympic Federation might adopt the line of least resistance, ind select the Murray BIridge crew. At the recent interstate conference in Perth the question of forming'a »'ede ral rowing council was urged, with the idea of ...
ESSENTIAL FUEL [Newspaper Article] — News — 25 July 1923
ESSENTIAL FUEL All nationrs are naturally fired with the ambition of being self-contained, but none has achieved it. Germany almost reached that ideal condition, before the war, but the prolonged stress of that struggle found her out. Manifestliy, if a country is to advance and expand industrially and commercially, it must be self-contained as to the means of production of power. But South Australia is not. There are no coal mines in this State, no oil wells and no hydro-electric schemes for the generati2on of power. Every enterprise in the State, which depends upon power to keep the factory wheels moving, the railway and tramway transport, the gas and elec tric light services, upon which So much of the domestic comfort and well being of the people depend, are all poised on the pick of the coal miner in New South Wales. Roughly speak ing, when the coal miner in New South Wales strikes, the ·whole industrial and domestic life of South Australia is chaos. Of course, the foresight of t...
Accidents Will Happen Lack Of First Aid Attendance STRENUOUSNESS HAS MADE GAME WARFARE OF SPORT [Newspaper Article] — News — 25 July 1923
Accidents Will Happen Lack Of First Aid Attendance STRENUOUSNESS HAS MADE GAME WARFARE OF SPORT In this article Mr. Leahy su.gests that every football club should have ambulance men on the field in case of accidents. "It is pitiful," he says, " to see players rolling on the wet grass in agfony waiting for t he trainers. But the trainers can do little good. It needs experien ced men." By TOM IUAHY, Accidents will happen. No one knows that better than the football player. for during past years football has be come more and more a game in which there is absolutely necessity that every man should be fit to withstand the hard knocks and bumps that are given. Strenuousness has made it " warfare of sport. But with this ad vance there has been little improve ment in providing for a service when players are injured. Single and married men go on to the field and risk their health and consti tution for the entertainment of football lovers. Yet when an accident happens, as it is bound to in the...
GAME IN VICTORIA St. Kilda Move Up [Newspaper Article] — News — 25 July 1923
GAME IN VICTORIA St. Kilda Move Up Bright sunshxne last Saturday helped to dry the Mel'bovrne grounds, but they were still far from being in good order for foot ball (writes "Old Boy"). The wind was not an iml)ortant factor, and, generally. con'ditions were better than for some time. Two of the games provided good contests -South Melbourne having a bare margin againsa Fitzroy, and Carton, although weakenend by having two 'players dis abled, ma~king a most creditable fight against St. Kilda. At Esserndon Coiling wood were easily beaten, while Melbourne were easy victims for Geelong. Essendon are now alone at the head of the list, being four points ahead of Fitzroy, with St. Kilda third four points further .-nay. Collingwood and South Melbourne are level for fourth place on premiership points, but the Magpies have the advan tage on percentages. Geelong, who have played a match less than their opponents. are next, and seem likely to make a bold bid for inchlsion in the finals. They hav...

INTERCOLLEGIATE MATCH SHOULD BE BLUE VICTORY Always a pleasant social function, as well as providing an exciting game, the Prince Alfred and St. Peter's foot ball contest next Saturday is arousing keen rivalry. Prince Alfred's team will be cap tained by Axford, and Moorhouse will ikipper Saints. Princes have not such a strong combination as last year, and the result looks like a win for St. Peter's. Princes' exhibition against the Old Scholars on the Adelaide Oval yester day afternoon was not impressive. On the other hand, Saints are strong in every department.
