LIFE IN OTHER WORLDS Amazing Theories. LONDON, September 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
UPE IN OTHER WORLDS Amazing Theories . LONDON. Sentember 20 amazing theories of the evolution of tne universe were discussed at today's session of the British Association^; the Advancement of Science. Bishop Barnes, declaring there -was no doubt that there were inhabitants of other worlds immeasurably beyond our mental level, added that it wTnud radiation sufficiently penetrating to convey messages to the earth. When such messages were made intelligible a new era for humanity would begin.

GOLD STANDARD AND TRADE "SELLING GOODS AT A LOSS" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
GOLD STANDARD AND TRADE -SEIXING GOODS AT A LOSS' To the Editor Sir — A scarcity of potatoes occasions a greater competition for them, and in order to obtain them more and more goods are offered for them, till prices are forced down to a level at which producers can no longer make a livelihood. In every direction cotton, wheat, rubber, and metals have been sold at a loss in the scramble to get potatoes to satisfy American de mands. The foregoing is quoted from a letter signed 'A. Barham Black,' in your paper of September 24 — save that the word 'gold' was used in the 6aid letter instead of 'potatoes.' But if, in America, for any reason, there was a very great scarcity of potatoes, then the argument as written in the fore going would be just as logical as is the argument in the letter by Mr. Black. Potatoes are as much 'the measure of value' as is gold. Gold is merely the expression of the relative value of any one commodity or service, as com pared with all other cervices and com mo...
POINTS FROM LETTERS Adelaide, Post-Office Clock [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
POINTS FROM LETTERS Adelaide Post-office Clock From 'Silly Willy': — Seeing as how the Federal PMjG.'s Department has become so sparing in regard to juice to illuminate the Post-office clock, what's the matter with decorating the bands and numerals with a coat of luminous paint? This would enable the ordinary individual to see the meanest time. Farm Laborers' Wages From 'One of Many,' North Ade laide:— Mr. Mclntosh, UP, should have given the Farmers' Belief Act more attention when it was before the Assembly. In the Act the farm laborers' wages are treated as unse cured debts, and come under part 5 in the distribution of the crop pro ceeds—which, in nine cases out of 10, is as good as saying they will not be paid. The fanner who honestly wants to pay the men who have helped h-'» to produce the crop, is not allowed to do so under the Act. Still I think Mr. Mdntosh's subsidy scheme is a good one, as many laborers who were caught last year are now getting the rations in preference to be...
GANDHI IN LONDON "ONE OF WORLD'S GREATEST CHARACTERS" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
GANDHI IN LONDON '?ONE OF WORLD'S GREATEST CHARACTERS' To Che Editor , Sir— I did not see in Mr. Stratton'a letter an attempt to cast a slur on 'Gandiii's sincerity as an Indian patriot.' I saw in it insinuations that he whom millions of TnriiPns almost worship as a 'great soul,' is rea^y not morally up to par. It was against this that I entered my protest. I ack nowledge that there is much that is unpractical in Gandhi's idealism and yet cling to my belief that he is one of the world's greatest characters Having suffered the inconveniences and worse than this, of the nonco operation movement, I am not likely to defend it. Many used Gandhi's 'lion violent' movement for their own violent ends, and non-violent, non co-operation must always lead to some outbursts of violence. But the miracle is that Gandhi's ideal was understood from his own living example by mil lions of Indians and won their allegi ance. Let us make these distinctions clear. In your paper of September 28 a news parag...
"TRADES UNION TYRANNY" LEVELHEADEDNESS LACKING To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
'TRADES UNJON TYRANNT LEVELHEADEDNESS LACKING To the Editor Sir— Trades unions were at the out set formed and led by a band of heroic m«n and women. who?e- main objective was the weldine toeether into unions for mutual benefit of that vast army of oersons ene-a-*Pd in toil from daviiffh't till dark. Pleasures and amusements were little knoTn. and in sickness in validity, arid old a»e the workers' lot v:n$ a hard or-?. Bv the selfsacri fice of the workers' loaders those con ditions were enormously changed for the better. Hours of labor were re duced to a TnTnimiinn, and wages were increased to a fair margin. Unfor tunately, when we set up the higher standards of living we also created a bureaucracy which ultimately became more tyrannical than any autocracy. Instead of fighting, as in olden times, feudal lords, industrial barons, and religious despots, we today must fight the star chamber methods of union bosses. I venture to Gay that the rank and file of labor, when properly awake, w...
INFLATION AND OPTIMISM "ACCEPTED POLICY OF ALL IN PRACTICE" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
INFLATION AND OPTIMISM 'ACCEPTED POLICY OF ALL IN PRACTICE' To the Editor Sir— All Mr. Wreford's gibes against Inflation are negatived by the fact that it is at present the accepted policy of alt parties in actual practice. Sir iwoert urioson ana tne Associated Banks are finding millions for the Governments, subsequent to the re port that they had exhausted their ad vances of funds to the danger limit. This is additional money over and above the requirements estimated by he anti-inflationist begetters of the Premiers' Plan. My sin is not hi being an inflationist, but in being honest about it. Mr. Wreford thinks infla tion a great scheme for the debtor, and that it is thus robbery. If this is true, the deflation of the past six years is a great scheme for the creditor, and is equally robbery, with the additional savage element that it bankrupts the l»or, whereas inflation merely clips the wings of the rich. Since the world is admittedly overhung with a night mare of debt, any scheme ...
TAXATION OF MOTOR CARS EXTRAORDINARY DEMAND To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
TAXATION OF MOTOR CARS EXTRAORDINARY DEMAND To the Editor TfZZT*1 Saturdays 'Advertiser' toe Beastrar of Motor Vehicles throw! lignt on a Government department's method of doing its business. In the letter to me claiming the unpaid car tax, he stated that the owner of the car in 1929 was not able to pay the ax, andnow he says I can sue him met htm. I did not buy the car from him. I have rendered '''» no service, and certainly i ham no authority to evy taxes on him. Surely the Begis iar's Department should conduct Its business in a legal 'i'm»r If the possession of a disc and receipt by a car seller is not sufficient proof that aU claims have been met. then it Is He duty of his department, when transferring a licence, to Inform the new owner of any conditions attached thereto, and not to wait until nearly a year has passed before putting those special conditions into effect. Surely the payment and acceptance of a tax form the two essentials of a contract, and a eimilar action to that...
VIEWS AND COMMENTS "PRIVATE ENTERPRISE PROVIDES WORK" GOVERNMENTS POWERLESS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
VIEWS AND COMMENTS 'PRIVATE ENTERPRISE PROVIDES WORT GOVERNMENTS POWERLESS To the Editor Sir— The opinion of the Premier (Bon. L. L. Hill) that private enter prise must provide work for the unem ployed, as Governments are powerless to do so, is one that is generally held. This conclusion is inevitable, in view of the dire extremity of the Treasuries. But private industry, too, is embar rassed, and while some of the causes are ungovernable, they are not all ea. Mr. Hill and his colleagues might., with advantage, devote eome time to an analysis of the- controllable disabilities of private industry, particularly those which result from, so-called 'humani- tarian' legislation. Foremost amnng them will be found excessive taxation, and, while present circumstances will prevent much imme diate relief in this direction, a careful review in collaboration with employers would not be abortive. Such a review snould include items of Government expenditure for which no return is obtained. Federal...

Suspended Railways Awards Canberra, October 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
Suspended Railways Awards Canberra. October 1. Mr. Keane (Labor, Vic.) asked the Attorney-General in the House of Re presentatives today what action the Government intended to take in rela tion to the suspended awards of the Australian Railways Union. 'I assume that the question relates to awards which were set aside by the Pull Court of the Commonwealth Arbi tration Court on October 4, 1330,' was Mr. Brennan. 'The Government has no power to do anything hi the mat ter, which can be dealt with only by the court itself on the application of a party.'
FIFTY YEARS AGO From "The Advertiser" October 2, 1881 [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931
FIFTY YEARS AGO From 'The Advertiser' October 2; 1881 VOW is the time for active ?' social reformers In Ade laide to work for Wednesday half-holidays for shop assis tants who at present labor from Monday morning tm late Satur day night. Those who enjoy the Saturday half-holiday, and under the eight hours' system get. a comparative holiday every night in the week as well, must be invited to do all they can to lighten the fetters of their less fortunate brethren in shop and warehouse, and to show their practical sympathy by refraining from shopping after midday on Wednesday. Let Adelaide take the lead among Australian cities in this matter. WHOSE who regard the prac ??- lice of 'ehouting' drinks as one of the main causes of drunkenness in our midst, wi3 note with interest that the Wisconsin COSJL) Legislature has just passed a measure de claring it a misdemeanor, punishable with a fine of not less than five nor more than ten dollars fo reach offence.
