HEADLINES Myself not 'having an evening pap- er I was eager to catch the mum mured news from a reader in the tram-car. He was a labourer, whose eyes sought one attractive headline after another. "Seventy Murders," he announced; and the girls sitting opposite paused in their noveSi-reading. "Thrilling Story Four Victims . " A yelling newsboy sprang to the foot board, and two more passengers, with an expectant gleam in their eyes, snatched iapers from him. Our friend at the other end of the seat continued amid the rustling of openng pages :" Sensational Knfie in Neck." An imaginative man beside me wriggled to see who sat ibehind him. "Demoralised .

"Butcher Murders Six Peo- ple." I decided never to risk my ...

TURKEY GOING TO BOW[?]VOWS NOW "HOOCHY-COOCHY" GONE [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 28 June 1927
TURKEY GOING TO BOW-WOWS NOW "HOOCHY-COOCHY" GONE There is gloom in Angora among the Old Turks and a feeling that the westernization of Turkey is being pushed too far. First, say the Old &nbsp; Turks, the Young Turks abolished the Fez; next they abolished the harem; and now, they have abolished the famous "hochy-coochy" dance. Wine, under the Mohammedan law, has been taboo for centuries and with the Fez, the harem and the hoochy-coochy eliminated, the Old Turks feel there is very little left to live for. The hoochy-coochy has just been abolished under an act of Parliament prohibiting the dance throughout Turkey. A telegram received on Saturday from Townsville Hospital by Mr. Chris Bell states that Paddy Byrne has successfuly undergone an operation for an abscess on the liver &nbsp; and is doing fairly well.
