AFFAIRS ABROAD REVIEW OF THE WEEK By the FOREIGN EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931

AFFAIRS ABROAD REVIEW OF THE WEEK By the FOREIGN EDITOR The suspension of the British Gold Standard Act of 1925, besides stopping the drain on the Bank of England's gold reserve, which, since July, had been reduced from £165.810,000 to £120,000,000, lias bad its expected effect in stimulating industry in the ola country, particularly in respect, to the export trade, resulting in an increased demand for raw materials, from which Australia is naturally benefiting. To empty a gold-standard country of its supplies or the precious metal is to impair its financial resources, and, as a consequence, to plunge the country into the slough of despond in which Britain has sunk during the past two years. This was evident to Lord Mac millan's Committee on Finance and Industry, who, in their report pub lished in July, prescribed very largely the course which the British Govern ment has now taken. The gold stan dard they treated as the Ark of the financial covenant, but they demanded that the princ...

TYPICAL OCTOBER WEATHER Return to Winter Not Unusual [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931

TYPICAL OCTOBER WEATHER Return to Winter Not Unusual Adelaide experienced a touch of win- <*> ter yesterday. According to the Government Meteorologist (Mr. E. Bromley) thus is not unusual at this time of ttie year; in fact. It can be re garded as a feature of October wea ther. There were only a few potato ol rain, Mr. Bromley added. Streaky Bay had 20 points, which was rather use ful. It was unlikely, that the middle or far north would get any relief, although there might be some moderate registrations In the MgMamHn of the lower north. The barometer was ris ing quickly, and the rain would won pass over. There was a strong southerly Wow yesterday, but It could not be com pared with the fierce north winds earlier in the week.

The occasion was the opening in Australia House, London, of an exhibi tion of works by Australian authors; and. if the view expressed Is not exactly on all fours with the classic chapter on «nain-g in N. HorreboWs "Natural History of Iceland" it comes very near it. The Danish historian. It will be remembered, in what Is reasonably claimed as the shortest chapter on record, said, "No snakes of any kind are to be met with throughout the whole island." Similarly, we are told, it does not require even the fingers of one hand to tot up all the Australian writers who really count, their names being Marcus Clarke, Adam Lindsay Gordon, Rolf Boldre wood. and Henry Lawson. In this group Australians will be quick to notice quite a number of names con spicuous by their a...

HOW HIGH-SPEED PLANES ARE PRODUCED Tests of Models In Tunnels and Tanks VICTORY IN LABORATORY [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931

HOW HIGH-SPEED PLANES ARE PRODUCED Tests of Models In Tunnels and Tanks VICTORY IN LABORATORY WHEN Flight-Lieutenant Stain- <*> forth was hurtling over the Solent at the terrific speed of more than 415 miles an hour in his Vickers supermarine seaplane, he was- putting into effect something that had been worked out on paper, charted, and graphed many weeks be forehand. For there is more behind the air speed record than the miracle of Kneed and human skill and courage. The beautifully-made, sleekly streamlined plane, with its carefully tuned, sprint engine that roared its way over the water of the Solent so fast that human eye could scarcely see it was the outcome of years of patient and slow research. Do not think that this belittles the courage of the nitot. Far from it. To shoot through the air at a speed when the filiehteet divergence means certain death requires a very special brand of bravery indeed. The pilot had staked his life on the absolute scientific accu rac...

Cloud Messages [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931

Cloud Messages By E. Bromley, Divisional Meteorologist THE lowest form of the lofty cirrus clouds, the cirro-cumulus, the ave- <*> rage height of which is about four miles. These clouds are easily recognisable, for they consist of delicate, small, rounded masses or white flakes, practically without shadows. They usually occur in large numbers, producing an effect described as "curdled sky." Frequently, though, they are in groups or rows that remind one of the patterns on the backs of mackerel. Hence the expression, "mackerel-back sky," commonly abbreviated to "mackerel sky." Cirro-cumulus clouds seem to be formed from a cirrus or from a number of cirri, by the fibres collapsing and becoming email, roundish masses. The change takes place either through the whole mass at once or gradually, from one end to the other. These clouds are most frequent in summer, during watm, dry weather. Therefore they are not usually associated with a rainstorm, although they generally indic...
