HIGH COURT BENCH WHO WILL BE CHIEF JUSTICE? MR. JUSTICE DIXON MENTIONED Melbourne, January 7. No appointment of a Chief Jus- tice of the High Court of Australia is likely to be announced until after January 22. On that day the present Chief Justice, Sir Isaac Isaacs, will be sworn in as Gover nor-General of tbe Commonwealth. If the Federal Ministry accepts the direction of the Labor caucus, it is almost certain tbat Mr. Justice Evatt, who was elevated to the High Court Bench, will be appointed. With the re turn of the Prime Minister (Mr. Scul lin i, it is expected, however, that Uie resistance of the moderates of the party will be stiffened. Mr. Justice Evatt's Chances The action of the Cabinet in ap pointing Mr. Justice Evatt and Mr. Justice McTiernan to the Bench at ithe behest of the caucus was not en dorsed by Mr. Scullin. who was con sulted but did not vote.

He had not for gotten my unfortunate break about Chinese bandits some time ago, ol I which I wrote you. He quizzically re- i ferred to it. but in such a good humored vein that it was robbed of offensive ness. "I see your Australian bandits are causing consternation in Australian affairs." he remarked.

From OUR Special Woman Correspondent London, November 27, 1930. The Queen cannot resist buying bags. No matter where she goes, to exhibi- tion, bazaar, or sale of work, one [?] two bags figure among her purchases, and the other day I saw a particularly lovely hand-made one which she has just selected from a display of needle work done by Lady Ada Boyd. It is of black satin, with an applique de sign of a tiny wild strawberry bed. with leaves and floweirs, and a butter fly hovering over the miniature bed. Lady Ada adapted the embroidery from an old-fashioned black satin apron, and the effect is delightful.
