The Law of Theft English Interpretations SOME QUAINT RULINGS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 22 January 1948

The Law of Theft   English Interpretations SOME QUAINT RULINGS   We all think we know what stealing is and what things are capable of being   stolen. Yet when we begin to read Eng- lish law, we at once perceive that it sometimes needs a lawyer to tell us whether we are committing a legal theft or not (writes a barrister-at-law in an English paper). For instance: Can a soldier or sailor steal His own rations? One would think not. But the late Mr. Justice Ridle found that he could. For rations are "the property of the State until con- sumed." Hence if they are supplied to you and instead of eating them you sell or give them away you may be guilty of stealing. It is not theft to steal a donkey-ride. But it is theft to steal the donkey. However, if you steal something much bigger, a whale to be precise, that is all right. For whales, cast ashore are "wrecks" in English law, which says you cannot steal a wreck.   Though doukey-riding or...

Secret Documents RUSSO-GERMAN TALKS Spheres of Influence Planned STAFFORD CRIPPS' OFFER Washington, January 21. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 22 January 1948

Secret Documents RUSSO-GERMAN TALKS Spheres of Influence Planned STAFFORD CRIPPS' OFFER Washington, January 21. Discussions between Hitler and the Russian Foreign Minister (Mr. Molo- tov) for splitting up the world into German, Russian and Japanese spheres of influence are revealed in German Foreign Office records.The records   issued by the State Department to-night also reveal plans for the division of   the British Empire. The documents   cover Soviet-German relations between   1930 and the German invasion of Rus-   sia in 1941.   One shows that Mr. Molotov and Hit-   ler agreed that Soviet territorial aspir-   ations lay south of the Soviet Union in the direction of the Indian Ocean. The   British Foreign Office and the State   Department had agreed to publish   simultaneously in chronological order,   all captured German doc...

Transport in Britain Clear the Wagons Campaign MANY VOLUNTEERS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 22 January 1948

Transport in Britain Clear the Wagons Campaign MANY VOLUNTEERS _______________       Hundreds of men and women busy unloadinf railway wagons, stacking goods in the depots, or piling them on lorries ready for delivery on Monday morning, such is the scene now at almost every large railway centre in Britain during week-ends. They   are all viounteers. who have responded to an appeal by Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir Stafford Cripps)   to help tackle a danger which is threatening the country's transport   during the winter months. Britain is short of railway wagons. F w were produced during the war when industry was concentrating on meeting the urgent needs of the fighting services, with the result that to-day the country is having to manage with 100,000 fewer than are required for essential purposes. In addition 200,000 are under repair — not surprising when it is remembered that unprecedented use...

Common Cold Remedies Cost Millions But Do Not Cure VARIOUS TREATMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 22 January 1948

Common Cold Remedies Cost Millions But Do Not Cure VARIOUS TREATMENTS Medicine has no specific treatment that can shorten attacks of the com- mon cold, states Dr. Hobart A. Reimann, of Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, in "The Reader's Digest" for December. Yet hundreds of mil- lions of dollars will be spent this win-   ter on cold "remedies" — from aspirin to expensive vaccines and doctors' fees. Colds amount to 32 per cent of all home visits by physicians. In an article condensed from the Journal of the American Medical Asso- ciation, Dr. Reimann appraises the     efficacy of various treatments for colds and finds no value, beyond temporary relief , iu any of them. Expensive sulfa drugs and penicillin, ineffective against viruses, are wasted in treating the virus infections of colds and their sister   diseases. Anti-fever drugs, such as   quinine, which, form the chief ingredi- ents of most nostrums, can have ...

OUR SERIAL STORY "The Matcher" CHAPTER XXI [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 22 January 1948

OUR SERIAL STORY "The Matcher" BY FRANK GILBERT CHAPTER XXI One of Jimmy's first acts, after   breakfast in St. Brieuc, was to tele- phone to the hotel at St. Lunaire where Sheila had stayed and enquire if she   was still there. The reply came, that she had left a week or two ago, and when Jimmy pressed for exact inform- ation he was, after a little delay, informed. He thanked the clerk, hung up the receiver, and came back to Peter with the news. "Evidently Sheila left the day I was arrested, and I'll stake my life that she took those papers through to Lon- don. But whether she would know to whom to deliver them is doubtful." Half-an-hour later a telegram and a letter were dispatched, the letter to Sheila from Jimmy and the telegram intended for Major Laxton, though not his official headquarters. Moreover, Peter employed a special code — gib- berish it would appear to a stranger, but the telegram conveyed some import- ant information to the chief of the Bri...

?JP* . . ? kin «llecc|iu jurer UtTT^ ? '*IX t^A FROM OUR COLUMNIST IN PARLIAMENT HOUSE Guaranteed increases in the price of j wheat, forestalling the anticipated j arguments at the conferences of State i Minister of Agriculture and wheat growers scheduled for next month, is - one of the first of the steps forecast in this column to meet the elections of 1949. Commerce Minister (Keg Pol lard) spent nearly a week over the holidays in close conference with his officers, especially the former Meat Controller (J. A. Tonkin), the chief man behind the scenes. Pollard dodged all questions in Par liament late last year on the future price of wheat, hut said — 'Appropriate steps will be made which will make wheat growers happy for years.' Greatest political catch in the announce ment of a minimum .0/3 i»er bushel bulk f.o.r. ports, for home consumption and export, is that the guarantee to 1952 and the stabilisation fund will operate only . for, the -remainder of this year.
