"RAFFLES" Ronald Colman's Great Role [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 23 February 1931

"RAFFLES" Ronald Colman's Great Role When Ronald Colman steps Into the role or a debonair breaker of strong- room, doors end women's hearts, he has something of a reputation to uphold. In "Raffles." at the York Theatre on Saturday, however, he was an amateur cracksman ?the amateur cracksman of dv Manrierte great story—who rather sets a new standard to live up to. Dol man, with his pleasant Bngifafti voice and polished manners, makes "Mr. Raffles" that type of crook whom the women rave over, and for whom even the police have a sneaking regard. Ec goes on stealing feminine hearts long after he had cracked his last crib, until the sorry plight of his gambling friend forces him to do one more "Job" before he quits and becomes respectable and married. The theft of the Melrose necklace that he attempts looks very much like being his last robbery in more ways than one. with another gang of criminals and a dour Scotch detec tive close on his heels most of the time.

HOW SHOWS GOULD COMBAT DEPRESSION Uraidla Impressions [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 23 February 1931

HOW SHOWS GOULD COMBAT DEPRESSION Uraidla Impressions By Murra People who predicted that the in- fluence or agricultural shows would wane must now confess that their judgment was faulty. During recent lean years, and at the worst period of depression, most of these annual festivals have been bigger and brighter than ever. And now at the opening of the autumn series the outlook still re mains bright. The first show for the season was opened at Summertown on Saturday, and the high standard of the display was well maintained. Looking through the local society's prize list for their forty-eighth fixture, I made a refresh ing discovery. The society has a credit balance in the bank, notwithstanding a loss made on the previous show! The new president <Dr. A. D. Reid), who has been resident medical officer at Summerton for five years, aptly said on Saturday that "the only tonic that will make the society virile is the sup port and interest or. the people." In his energetic effort...

The impossible position of hating a Federal by-election fought on what is but portion of the policy of a Stale Government will have to be cleared up by an inter-State conference of the Labor Party.

SIMPLIFYING THE CALENDAR [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 23 February 1931

SIMPLIFYING THE CALENDAR The calendar enters so largely into daily life that so radical a change in it as is contemplated in a scheme to be discussed by the Assembly of the League of Nations at its October meet ing may well excite attention. Shortly stated, the altered year would com prise 13 months of 28 days each, the extra month to be known as SoL The change would be Inaugurated on January 1. 1933, which happens, appro priately enough, to be a Sunday; and thereafter the first day of every ?month would be a Sunday, and the last day a Saturday. As there are 365 days in the year, and thirteen months of 28 days each would account for only 364 days, the new calendar would leave a day to be dis posed of. and this odd day, occurring at the end of the year, it is proposed, in honor of the League of Nations, and as an expression of international good will, to observe as "Peace Sabbath." In leap year there would be another blank day. which would be interpolated into the middle of the twelv...

SERIES OF TIDAL WAVES Terrifying Experience at Rarotonga Wellington, February 22. An extraordinary series of tidal waves, apparently the result of some submarine disturbance, occurred at Rarotonga, Cook Islands, on the afternoon of January 28. nearly a week before the Hawke's Bay earthquake, according to a letter received from Miss Freda Hirst, a resident of Rarotonga. "The day was glorious and the sea was like a millpond. when suddenly the waters outside the lagoon rose to a height of 15 feet," the letter states. "They advanced, wave after wave, and i it seems that we narrowly escaped a i bad tidal wave as. instead or the whole ] I disturbance coming at once, it came in | ? a series. The water broke over the \ reef with terrific thundering and . rushed up the harbor. Each successive . wave submerged the wharf entirely and filled all the big wharf sheds, and then receded with tremendous speed. Everybody was terribly alarmed," I
