NEGLECTED SCIENCE. BRITAIN AND GEOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
NEGLECTED SCIENCE. BRITAIN AND GEOGRAPHY. "The United States of America, Ger- many, and Japan have more chairs of geography in small areas than the whole of Britain and her possessions," said Dr. J. P. Thomson, C.B.E., in an address on Britain and Geography, last night, at the annual general meet- ing of the Royal Geographical Society of Australasia (Queensland). Dr. Thomson deplored the fact that the vast store of knowledge accumu- lated by our "prescient forefathers," when Britain's economic dominance was unchallenged in the world, had not been put to a better use. Manufac- turers and exporters had rested on their laurels, while the United States of America, Germany, and Japan sent out clever men to all parts of the habitable globe to report upon the positions of races, peoples, and tribes; of climatic conditions, and of economic situations. Britain and her colonies were soon left behind because of a certain lack of enterprise. Possessing a vast amount of knowledge gained by geogr...

Bulcock) made this statement yesterday when discussing the remarks of Mr. H. F. Walker, M.L.A., when opening the Cooroy show. Mr. Walker had then said that Victoria was still the stumbling block in the efforts to obtain butter stabilisation. Mr. Bulcock, in reply to this state- ment, said that Western Australia and Victoria were the only States that had not yet agreed to the butter stabilisa- tion scheme. In the case of Western Australia Its participation was not re- garded as vital to the success of the scheme, but It was recognised that unless Victoria became a party it would not succeed. The latest infor- mation he had from that State was that further consideration was being given to the scheme, and it was expected that a decision would be reached shortly. LEGISLATION READY.
