MOTOR CYCLE NOTES AND EVENTS NEW MODELS ON TOE ROAD Royal Enfield 499 cc. o.h.v. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

MOTOR CYCLE NOTES AND EVENTS NEW MODELS ON THE ROAD Royal Enfield 499 cc. o.h.v. It is the boast of the manu- facturers of the Royal Enfield that they never turn out any- thing about which they have the slightest doubt. The 499 cc o.h.v. model Royal Enfield possesses just that combination of soundness and good road performance which ensures the machine's popu- larity. One of the salient features of the Royal Enfield is its mechanical silence. It is just possible to hear the valve The 499 c.c. o.h.v. Royal Enfield gear working, but it is quite impos- sible to notice the primary chain, be-   cause of the drive being enclosed in an all-oil bath. In the matter of ex- haust silence at low speeds, the silencer reduces the note to the merest burble, and even the most injudicious use of the throttle when in the lower gears will not attract the slightest attention. D.C. Block Convenient Gear Control The type of gear change lever used in conjunction with the Sturmey Archer gearbo...

HILL CLIMB COURSE HALF CLEARED More Work on Saturday [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

HILL CLIMB COURSE HALF CLEARED More Work on Saturday More than 40 motor cyclists turned out on Saturday to prepare the site of the M.C.C. hill climb on October 31. Excellent progress made made, and about half the course has been cleared and graded. The climb is be- tween 600 and 700 feet long. To complete the work another party will gather at the site at 2 p.m. on Saturday. It is expected that after the unexpected refreshments, provided last week there will be no lack of num- bers. Mesdames T. Dodd, A. Moyle, and P. A. Lewis, and Mr. W. Devling. saw that the workers on Saturday did not go hungry— or thirsty. Entries will close on October 23, the fee of 5/ covering the whole day's programme, and including the accident fund benefits. The open handicap is the only race so far proposed, but in the event of entries being large, it is probable that a class scratch race, with recognition for the fastest time of the day, win be contested. The official practice will be an- nounced after the ...

CLUB GOSSIP [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

CLUB GOSSIP   "SPEEDSTERS' handicap" caused a great deal of amusement at the 21st an-   nual ball of tne Motor Cycle Club of   South Australia on Tuesday. K. Litch-   field, R Milton, and F. Mitchell carried off the prizes. The bll was a huge success and a fitting commemoration of   the beginning of the controlling club's     21st year of existence. Mr. W. Devling (president of the club) was present and received many congratulations on behair of the M.C.C. HARLEY-DAVIDSON'S run on Sunday to the Scramble Course was made with the intention of clearing the track. Various clubs were represented in this work.

Com- petitors should note that another run will be held to the course, leaving the Regent Service station at 2.15 on Sunday. October 11. Entries c...

The Advertiser ADELAIDE: THURSDAY. OCTOBER 1, 1931 NEW LIGHT ON RAILWAY FINANCE [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

The Advertiser ADELAIDE: THURSDAY. OCTOBER 1, 1931 NEW LIGHT ON RAILWAY FINANCE The South Australian Railways Royal Commission was appointed by the Hill Government in May of last year—very wisely, as the event entitles us to be- lieve—and has twice had its life ex- tended, to the accompaniment of murmurs from some unfriendly critics that, like Charles II, it was "an un- conscionable time a dying." Now the Commission is dead, and its final report stands as a monument to its labors. The enormous annual loses incurred on the working of the rail ways (conservatively stated as aggre- gating nearly nine millions in the past twelve months) account in very large measure for the gravity of the whole problem of State finance; and, from this point of view alone, it would be difficult; to exaggerate the importance of the task assigned to the Commis- sion—to discover the cause of these disastrous deficits, and to suggest means for their elimination or reduc- tion. Mr. Goodman and his fellow comm...

"JURY SQUARING" [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

"JURY SQUARING" In these iconoclastic days, the most hoary antiquity cannot save an institu- tion from being called in question. But trial by jury still stands, mainly be- cause the people doubt whether its abolition would not entail evils greater than can now be laid to its charge. In this State during recent years it has been purged by legislation of some of its defects: but one of the most serious has yet to be remedied, and if it is a growing one. as the Crown Prosecutor suggests, it cannot receive too speedily the attention of Parliament. This is the practice known to the law as embracery, and to the man in the street as jury-squaring, a Bill for the suppression of which is now before the Assembly. The aim is the removal of the facilities which now exist for this most demoralising and dangerous prac- tice. The prior knowledge obtain able under the existing procedure as to the personnel of prospective juries enables one or more of the "twelve good men and true" to be approached ...

MUCH SMOKE; LITTLE FIRE [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

MUCH SMOKE; LITTLE FIRE The scenes which disturbed the peace of Westminster on Tuesday, and which were doubtless of Communistic origin, conformed to a pattern which is by no means unfamiliar—a crowd of unemployed "demonstrating" with no apparent object, and with as little dis- cernible result. South Australians may find the cabled report reminiscent of a rather similar affray, on a small scale, in Victoria-square; an affray which months of order and good gov- ernment have since sufficed to place in its proper perspective. When the customary quiet of Adelaide was marred by this outbreak of disorder, and the news was cabled about the world, it is quite possible that nervous people were willing to believe that something really serious was afoot. In fact, it had been a mere flash in the pan; and subsequent revelations, that active Communists in South Australia num- bered about 15, justified nothing more than astonishment that such a small force had been able to make so much noise. We ha...

PERSONAL [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

PERSONAL Princess Alice (Countess of Ath-   lone) has agreed to become president of the Victoria League, according to information received by the South Australian branch of the league from its headquarters in London. Lady Hore-Ruthven visited the Girls' Junior Legacy Club yesterday and pre- sented badges to the girls. Mr. J. W. Sutherland, who has been Mayor of Glenelg for the past three years, will not seek re-election to that position at the next municipal elec- tions. Mr. H. S. Taylor, editor of the "Mur- ray Pioneer." who has been indisposed for the past six months, is still far from well. He recently removed for a change to Mildura, where his condition showed some improvement, but his progress towards recovery is by no means as rapid as his large circle of friends could wish. On Tuesday evening at the Went- worth, the staff of Miller Anderson Limited met to say good-bye to Mr; T. Barns, who is relinquishing the management of the company after 50 years. The chair wa...

SEEING THE WORLD Three Stewardesses on Cargo Ship [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

SEEING THE WORLD Three Stewardesses on Cargo Ship A longing to see the world lured three girls from their comfortable homes in. Sweden, and they are now stewardesses on the Swedish motorship Parrakoola, which is at Port Adelaide. Miss Hilda Carlsson is the most ex- perienced traveller of the three, she having made two trips round the world. The other two, Misses Elna Barkman and Srigrid Rosin, are on their first voyage. The three girls are in the   early twenties. The fact that they, with three other stewardesses on the Mirrabooka, a sister ship to the Parrakoola, are the only girls to occupy such positions on a cargo ship visiting Australia, has caused them to be objects of interest at each seaport. They, however, are now used to it. "We are having a wonderful time," Miss Carisam, the only one of the three who can speak English, said yesterday, "and we don't intend to leave the sea until we marry. Then we shall settle down, and be prepared to remain in the one place. W...

WILKINS TO TRY AGAIN North Pole Venture "PRACTICABLE TRIP" LONDON, September 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

WILKINS TO TRY AGAIN North Pole Venture "PRACTICABLE TRIP" LONDON, September 29. Sir Hubert Wilkins, on his ar- rival here today after his recent attempt to reach the North Pole by submarine, said the Nautilus had proved that it was practicable to pass under the polar ice-cap. He was al- ready planning another expedition. He said the mechanical equipment of the Nautilus was unsatisfactory and too complicated for a small crew to carry. "For the next expedition I shall build a special submarine, with which I have every reason to believe I can reach the Pole in safety," he added. The scientific results of the cruise of the Nautilus had justified the risks and expense, he considered. He ex- plained that the submarine's long silence was due to the shortage of time. To come to the surface and com- municate with the world would have meant breaking off important work.. Moreover, damp had affected the wire- less. Ice Drill Stuck   The most anxious moment of the voyage was when t...

JUNIOR KUITPO COLONY Twelve Boys Leave on Monday [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

JUNIOR KUITPO COLONY Twelve Boys Leave on Monday A dozen boys will leave the Cen-   tral Mission Building, Pitt-street, Adelaide, on Monday in a motor lorry for the Junior Kuitpo Colony. They will form the nucleus of the colony, which is being established by the Young People's Employment Coun- cil about four miles away from Kuitpo Colony. The boys will be under canvas at the start, but, gradually, with the help of members of the senior colony, they will build their huts and dining- room, clear the land, and engage in poultry and pig raising and garden- ing. Selecting the Colonists The secretary of the council (Mr. G. D. Haigh) had a busy time yester- day interviewing boys and their parents or guardians, and selecting the new colonists. They will be chosen in the order of the most deserving cases first, and then as to the suitability of the boys for the life. Nine or ten eager boys were waiting outside Mr. Haigh's office. Mrs. A. L. Wear, of Emily-street, Sandwell had te...

FILLING IN THE LUNCH HOUR No Gymnastics for Adelaide Girls [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

FILLING IN THE LUNCH HOUR No Gymnastics for Adelaide Girls Adelaide's business girls find no time for whizzing round horizontal bars, or doing handsprings in their luncheon hours. They stroll along Rundle-street hunting for bargains; there are fav- orite spots on the lawns on North-ter- race, they chat, knit, read, or sew in their own luncheon rooms, and discuss the latest dance steps over a cup of tea; in fact, they do anything woman like except attend a physical culture class. In that they differ from their Syd- ney sisters, for there lunch-hour gym- nastics have become very popular. Every day hundreds of girls subjugate lunch to muscle building, and a desire for physical fitness. Mr. Shorthose, of Weber, Shorthose and Rice, physical culture specialists, considers that classes could be formed here without difficulty. Half an hour could be given to exercise, and 15 min- utes to shower and dress, leaving 15 minutes in which to have a snack. However, so apathetic today are our girls,...

IN SEARCH OF A THRILL Aged Couple to Fly to Perth [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

IN SEARCH OF A THRILL Aged Couple to Fly to Perth In search of a thrill, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Hollis, of Light-street, Exeter, will travel on Saturday in an aero-   plane for the first time. Both are 80 years of age. They in- tend to fly to Perth. The couple have made the journey by boat and train several times, but they are using the plane "for a bit of experience." Mr. Hollis said yester- day that he had a good constitution, and a doctor had told him that he was as good as a lot of younger men. He had not been in a plane before, and was looking forward to the trip with excitement. Asked whether he had been sick at sea, he said that he was an exceptionally good, sailor, and did not think that the aeroplane trip would affect him. He had ridden thousands of miles on horseback, from early morn- ing until late at night. "I have had many falls, but I have no wish to fall from a plane," laugh- ingly explained Mr. Hollis. "I don't think that can happen, because we will be strap...

IN OTHER CITIES Melbourne Gossip Melbourne, September 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

IN OTHER CITIES Melbourne Gossip Melbourne, September 30. Replying to the criticism that poli-   tics should not be introduced in religion, clergymen have sometimes remarked that there is every reason why religion should be introduced in politics. Arch- bishop Head is one who has never hesi- tated to speak his mind, and his re- marks have not always found favor in the inner circles of the Trades Hall. His contrast of the social gospels or Christ and Karl Marx has created wide interest. It is seldom—too seldom, some people think—that the Church finds it neces- sary to speak out on such matters, and for that reason Archbishop Head's charge to Synod will carry the more weight. He stressed the need for eco- nomic freedom, but he added—"Eco- nomic freedom by itself is not enough to bring us out of our difficulties, for   men can still be selfish, cruel, and dis- honest. For this Karl Marx has no remedy, except force, to curb their selfishness." The essential wro...

WORLD'S QUEEN OF TRAGEDY Story of Mrs. Siddons [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931

WORLD'S QUEEN OF TRAGEDY Story of Mrs. Siddons Hanging on the western wall of the first floor at the Antiques Exhibition on North-terrace is a portrait of Mrs. Siddons. It is attributed to Sir [?] Reynolds. In its great oval frame of gilt it emmediately arrests attention. Looking at it, one is reminded of the life story of this most famous tragedy actress in the history of the world's stage, a star in the histrionic firma- ment incomparably greater than the great Bernhardt herself. Mrs. Siddons was one of those ex- amples of a great failure becoming an outstanding success. She was 20 when she first made her appearance at Drury Lane in the role of Portia. She was a disappointment—rumor of the period said this was due to the pique of Gar- rick—and at the end of the season was not re-engaged. But the blood of the stage flowed in her veins, for she was a daughter of Roger Kemble, and she returned to the provinces where for the next six years, stung by a sense of defeat, she threw hersel...
