'POETRY OF ADV3ERTISING. An advertising man, who has re cently returned from the Orient, says the Japanese merchants and manyfac turers who have chosen to make use of printer's ink are not disposed to limit themselves to dull, prosaic statements concerning the excellence of their wares.

"Parcels done up with such loving as a wife bestows upon her husband." "The print of our books is as clear as crystal; the matter charming as a singing girl." "Customers are treated as politely as by rival steamship companies." "Our silks and satins are as smooth as a lady's cheeks and.. col oured like the rainbow."

Those who have had the pleasure of know ing this highly cultured and progres sive lady will sadly miss her from her usefull spheres of labor.

Both these ladies gave liber ally, but unostentatiously, and bona ilde collectors always came away from this home cheered by the fact that there were some warm-hearted, sym pathetic s...

COMPULSION IN ARBITRATION. An Industrial Travesty. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 30 June 1922
cO.;)JLS Of IN ARBITR74TION. An Industrial Travesty. Visualised from every angle the sys teni of compulsory arbitration as ap plied to the Australian Continent is es sentially wrung. When it is realiced that a judge sitting in Melbourne or Sydney takes'upon himself the task of regulating wages, hours, and conditions of labour for a country into which three-fourths of Continental Europe could be placed comfortably, one can readily imagine that the process of dis pensing justice is r.ot only cumbersome but is burdened with all the elements of inequality and inequity. The Presi dent of the Commonwealth Couet of Conciliation and Arbitration is clothed with powers little more elastic than those of a judge of-the criminal or civil branch of the judicature. He forms his judgment upon Ilie evidence subn.:tted, and delivers his award in a manner consistent with the facts brought be tore i:is notice. But is there anyone so enafroured of the system of cnompul sory a.rbitration who wilt say tha...
