HOUSEWIVES' CONCERN State Convention Proposed CO-OPERATION URGED Perth, This Afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 24 January 1948

HOUSEWIVES' CONCERN State Convention Proposed CO-OPERATION URGED Perth, This Afternoon. To discuss means of combating ris- ing prices a convention of all women's organisations throughout the State has been suggested. The suggestion was first made by the president of the cen- tral executive of the women of the A.L.P. State Executive (Mrs.R. A.   Hartley). She said to-day that she was speaking personally, and not on behalf of her executive when she sug- gested the convention. The president of the National Coun- cil of Women (Mrs. R. E. Pratt) said that she thought that the Council would be most happy to co-operate in such a   convention. Mrs. Pratt continued : — "The rising spiral of prices is appalling to the housewife who is the one who has to make ends meet. We have   done all we can, but we seem to have been only a little voice crying in the wilderness. If we all get together per- haps our combined voices will be heard." Mrs. Hartley said tha...

Costs in Australia BUILDING PRICES RISE America's Position Quoted GREATER OUTPUT URGED Melbourne, January 24. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 24 January 1948

Costs in Australia BUILDING PRICES RISE America's Position Quoted GREATER OUTPUT URGED Melbourne, January 24. The cost of home building in Aus- tralia would be 160 per cent. higher than the 1939 figure when the forty hour week and 4/- basic wage rise effects were felt. Even before the shorter week and the wage adjustment it cost £2,880 to build a house of twelve squares (1,200 square feet), which in 1939 would have cost £1,200. These, figures were produced to-day by the secretary of the Property Owners' Association of Victoria (Mr. H.P.   Higginson). In the United States of America the cost had risen by 200 per cent, over the same period. Large blocks of United States homes built by institutions, and now offered for sale on twenty-five years terms were unsaleable, because of their high cost. Many in the western States were empty. Australia was rapidly approaching that stage. The only remedy was greater output for each man hour which was unlikely, said Mr. Higginson. Evi...

PADDY'S MARKET A Vista of Sydney Life PARCELS FOR SCOTLAND [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 24 January 1948

PADDY'S MARKET — O —     A Vista of Sydney Life PARCELS FOR SCOTLAND "Any of these trams will take you near Paddy's Market," she said, mak- ing a wide sweep with her shopping bag and indicating all George Street. ''Not to mind ye, just near," and that is how we commenced to talk (writes M. L. Barry in the "Sydney Morning Herald''). "I'm going to the markets, now," she said. "So you can come along with me — I'ev been going there these twenty years — as long as I've been in Sydney, and I don't know how I would have brought up my family without them — many pairs of trousers I've bought here for next to nothing and brought them home and washed them and they were as good as new. I used to buy everything there — but things were different then — nothing's the same now — even the markets is different — in a new building now and everything's dear." The years which had deprived her of her top set of teeth had almost ironed out the burr in her speech so that I had to ...
