IMPROVE CROWN LANDS. Relief Labour. CABINET DISCUSSES PLAN. The State Cabinet yesterday discussed an important scheme under which the services of men now engaged on intermittent re- lief work of a more or less un- productive character would be utilised in improving Crown land being made available for selection. The scheme was taken to the Cabinet by the Minister for Labour and Industry (Mr. M. P. Hynes), and, after discussion, it was referred te the Bureau of Industry for consider- ation and report. Outlining the plan, Mr. Hynes said that it was not definitely known whether thero was much land avail- able that could be brought within the scope of the scheme. It was provided that the work should be carried out under the direction of competent gangers now in charge of relief gangs, and the relief workers employed on the improvements would be men now working under the intermittent relief scheme or who were on rations. The men would be employed for five days a week, and the money for th...

FMICE OF PETMOL. Big Percentage is Federal Tax* * The petrol tax a gallon collected by the Commonwealth authori- ties is now beginning to assume a particularly high percentage or the price to the consumer.

New Chrysler Six. Handsome Lines; New Features. ' The 1933 Chrysler Six, now being placed on the Queens- land market, should enhance the wonderful reputation estab ! lished by its predecessors. The appearanoe of the new range i is more distinctive than ever, and the improved mechanical i features ensure an impressive p erformance. EXTERNAL beauty and symmetry of Unes always have given Chrys- ler cars an outstanding individu- ality, and newly designed radiator, front guards, headlamps, and bumper bars on the 1933 model combine to form an imposing frontal appearance that is very striking. The rearward sweep through bonnet, streamlined wind- screen, low-set body, and flared rear guards is very handsome in its com- bined effect, not a harsh line showing anywhere. The rear view is distinctive,, showing twin tail _lamps and dough- nut type metal cover for spare wheel and tyre. The radiator emblem is of new design, embodying the familiar Chrysler wings 'surmounted by a gazelle. In the bonn...

PLAN TO PRODUCE GOOD WOOL Japanese Development In Manchuria "Now that Japan has secured ascendancy over Manchuria she has begun a vigorous campaign to make herself independent of other countries for raw materials. The programme includes an 18-year plan to produce wool comparable to Australian." [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

PLAN TO PRODUCE Japanese Development In Manchuria "Now that Japan has secured ascendancy over Man- churia she has begun a vigorous campaign to make herself independent of other countries for raw materials. The pro- gramme includes an 18-year plan to produce wool comparable to Australian." This comment was made by Mr. Harry Carr, a journalist, and member of the board of directors of the "Los Angeles Times," when interviewed on board the Marella yesterday. Mr, Carr has spent the last few months in the East studying Japanese influence :n the Pacific. The Japanese realised, he said, the greatness of their problem in evolving a breed of sheep that would produce wool anywhere near the quality grown in Australia, but as it was her deter- mination to be self-supporting in this as well as in most other products, money and time would not be spared to bring about the success of the scheme. The Japanese Government had allowed l8 years in which to in- troduce an animal that would produce wool ak...

FORCING THE PEOPLE TO SPEND. "Brain Trust" Leader's Original Plan. Professor Dahlberg, the new "brain trust" leader at Washington, has outlined an original scheme for compelling people to spend money, instead of saving it. He proposes to issue new currency each month, the currency of the preced- ing month to be worthless at the banks and stores. (Australian Cable Service.) WASHINGTON, August 27. A now "brain trust" leader emerged to-day immediately after the an- nouncement of Professor Moley's re- signation as Assistant Secretary of State. He is Professor Arthur Dahl- berg, of the Social Science Research Council, who has been recruited, be- cause of his remarkably original ideas of how to force people to spend money to help the recovery programme. Unlike most germs from the minds of the "brain trust" members, Pro- fessor Dahlberg's plan is astonishingly simple. He suggests the issuing of a new batch of currency every month, the currency of the pieceding month to be worthless at the ...

BETTER WAGES. MOVE BY BRITISH WORKERS. (Australian Press Association.) LONDON, August 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

BETTER WAGES. MOVE BY BRITISH WORKERS. (Australian Press Association.) LONDON, August 28. According to the "Daily Express'' a nation-wide campaign for better wages will be the critical issue of the Trade Union Congress, which assembles at Brighton next week. "Two million workers, who bore their share of the depression," continues the "Express,'' "are demanding a share of the pro- ceeds of the industrial revival.. Rep- ercussions of President Roosevelt's experiment in America are thus spreading to Britain."

EXPORT PROHIBITED. Australian Merinos. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

EXPORT PROHIBITED. Australian Merinos. "I have been given to understand that the sheep which were shipped from Australia to Manchuria recently were cross-bred, not merino," said the president of the United Graziers' As- sociation' of Queensland (Mr. Norman Bourke) yesterday, in commenting upon Mr. Carr's statement. "The ex- port of merino sheep from Australia is definitely prohibited." It would be possible for Japan to obtain merinos from the United States of America, he added, but competition in quality and breeding from that source would hardly be serious. Before the ban on export was imposed five or six years ago Australian stock had been exported to South Africa, and it might be possible for Japanese buyers\ to obtain stud stock in that country -unless, of course, South Africa fol- lowed Australia's lead and imposed an export ban.

PRESSURE ON BRITAIN. Currency Problem. APPREHENSION IN EUROPE. LONDON, August 28. A belief that Britain will not much longer be able to resist inflation is growing with the rise in the price of gold. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

PRESSURE ON BRITAIN. Currency Problem. ? APPREHENSION IN EUROPE. LONDON, August 28. A belief that Britain will not much longer bo able to resist in- flation is growing with the rise in the price of gold. The "Financial News," in to-day's issue, devotes half a column to dis- cussing the investors' best policy in the event of inflation. The "Financial Times" declares that confidence in all forms of currency is steadily decreas- ing. The entire £200,000 in bar gold offered on the market on Saturday was taken by Continental buyers, most of whom are hoarding the metal in London. It Is estimated that the gold stored in London safe deposits amounts to £50,000,000, the bulk of which belongs to foreigners, as the Bank of England is empowered to purchase British hoards at the statu- tory price of £4/4/9 an ounce. Some sections of the city expect a general abandonment of the gold standard be- fore next year. The city attaches the greatest significance to the pend- ing conversations between Pre...

ALL TO GAIN. WHEAT GROWERS. MR. LYONS'S BELIEF. CANBERRA, August 28. Australian wheat growers stood to gain materially without having to face any serious curtailment of their activities, as a result of the wheat agreement, said the Prime Minister (Mr. J. A, Lyons) to- night. It was hoped that as a result of the agreement the world price would rise to an extent that would check the un- economic over-development which was largely responsible for the glut, Mr. Lyons added. It was believed that the agieement would assist towards creat- ing a normal market at its termina- tion. Had Australia declined to par- ticipate in any agreement the confer- ence must have failed, and this would have resulted in a collapse of tho market. Any agreement which postulated a slowing up of Australian development of agriculture on normal lines, con- tinued Mr, Lyons, could not be regard- ed with any pleasure, but in the Circumstances it was felt that in the Interests of the wheat growers them- selves it was...
