EDUCATION FACILITIES SCHOOL NEEDED AT EAST CHAPMAN. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 9 January 1929

EDUCATION FACILITIES SCHOOL NEEDED AT EAST CHAPMAN. (To the Editor.) Sir, — All sorts of prophesies have been made regarding the blessings of i the rising generation. I am proud to say that 1 have lived most of my life in this State, which has bred many worthy sons. Parents at Mount Krin and East Chapman have every cause to regret the fact that there is no school near to which they can scd-1 their children after the Chri.stniHs vacation. Many arc of the opinion that this long es tablished district is being ignored in this respect. Residents quote cases from other parts of the distrk-t (some only settled within the past 7 or 8 years) which have schools in their midst, and where teachers live in far less preten tious quarters than those offered at Durawah. Over two years ago an Inspector from the Education Department visited Durawah to find what accommodation offered there for a teacher and after nspecting a very comfortable residence occupied by one of the leading farmers of the dist...

CZECHOSLAVAKIA THE KING'S DICTATORSHIP A POLICY BORN OF DESPAIR London, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 9 January 1929

CZECHOSLAVAKIA THE KING'S DICTATORSHIP A POLICY BORN OF DESPAIB London, January 8. The Belgrade correspondent of 'The Times' says taat King Alexander has assumed complete and sole authority in every department of State in Czecho slovakia. He will have power to de clare war or peace. The idea of ? an autocracy is unpopular in Serbia, but there is less exasperation now because Parliament has brought tho country to such a sorry pass. There is widespread conviction that drastic events were im minent and that the King merely fore stalled them.

Ho'uo papers say that the King's coup-d 'etat \vn*i nn heroic policy born of despair.

Gallant efforts to rescue two girls from treacherous undertow in the surf at Diamond Head, near Taree, to-day endangered the lives of four men, but the girls and their rescuers were even tually brought ashore.

UNBELIEVABLE JAPAN INSECTS VENERATED COURTSHIP WITHOUT KISSES. The globe trotter who writes a boolt about Australia after being a month in the Commonwealth is lightly re garded. When he ventures to treat Japan in the same superior fashion we paid no heed to him. *€t is a nice question whether legislation should not be invoked to _ prohibit anyone writing an account of a country un less he has lived in it for at least I ten years. Books of travel are trem endously popular, and on that account should be reliable. Among the stream of books about Japan, the best informed and the most charmingly written within re- cent years is * 'Japanese All,' by J. Ingram Bryan. {London: Mcthuen and Co., Ltd.) Dr. Bryan was for sixteen [ years professor in Japanese colleges, * and is extension lecturer for the Uni versity of Cambridge in Japanese his tory and civilisation.

MATTERS QUIET AT PEAK HTLL. The Meekatharra Milling Registrar reports that mining in the Peak HiL'. district was very quiet during Dec ember and as the State Battery was not working no gold was reported. This is the only facility for crushing avail iiblo to the prospectors of this district and when it is not running no gold is reported, with the exception of an oc casional parcel of alluvial from var ious centres. The Wembley ir. still working and shows better pros' peets. A couple of assisted prospectors are w.orking an pros peeting area adjoining this property but have met with disappointing results so far. North of the Kuby Well Mes.-rs. Meek and Lo Feuvre are working- a prospee ing area carrying a big lode formation but the last crushing was on the poor side. However the owners are of the opinion thit it will improve at depth. ICo information was available as to the operations at Peak Hill itself ar present, but no new finds or important developments have been reported.
