RIVERSIDE WORKS. Absorb 80 to 90 Men. EARLY START INTENDED. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

RIVERSIDE WORKS. Absorb 80 to 90 Men. EARLY START INTENDED. A start will be made next Monday on the Government's scheme for im- proving banks and walls in the lower reaches of the river on which work it is intended to spend £16,000. This work, said the Minister for Labour and Industry (Mr, M. P. Hynes), would be important, in that it would provide another avenue for tne employment of relief workers. The Brisbane City Council had become concerned about the increasingly large number of men being added to its list of relief workers, and this scheme of river improvement should ease the position. It was intended that 60 mon should start on Monday hewing .stone in the quarries at Kangaroo Point, and, it was hoped, on the following Monday to commence actual improve- ment work on the Lytton wall with an additional 20 or 30 men. It was expected that the men would be kept occupied at this work for 12 months. They would be drawn xrom the areas in which the work was situ- ated.

SECRET GIVEN OUT. METHODS OF BANNING BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

SECRET GIVEN OUT. METHODS OF BANNING- BOOKS. "The most amazing aspect of the whole matter is that the Customs offi- cials should have been so silly as to have given away the secret of the stupid system that previously held re- garding the censorship of books," laughingly commented a well-known Queen Street, bookseller yesterday. He was referring to a message from Canberra appearing in "The,Courier Mall" yesterday, in which admissions were made by Customs offleers,..that( books had been frequently banned be-' cause they were brought forward at times when the official perusers . were over-burdened with other work. Rather than incur reprimands they placed ¿he books on the taboo list until such time as they had an opportunity of rereading them-but that time never carne, and the books remained on the list. Another bookseller stated that the censorship did little or no good, but only drew attention to publications which in the ordinary course would have a very small circulation. "It only ...

RICH IRISH COMEDY. Authorities Fooled. GENERAL O'DUFFY'S STRATEGY. (Australian Press Association.) DUBLIN, August 27. Outwitting the Government forces, which had been concentra- ted to enforce the prohibition of a memorial meeting by the Blue Shirts at Bealnablach, where Michael Collins was ambushed, General O'Duffy succeeded in ad- dressing 5( Blue Shirts at Ban- don. Five hundred police, a detachment of the military forces, and an arm- oured car placed a cordon round the proscribed area, a wild and desolate stretch of moorland and mountain. General O'Duffy left Bandon in a high-speed car, accompanied by the Blue Shirt leaders in a second car. Two car loads of detectives followed, but the Blue Shirts second car slowed down in a narrow mountain lane, and prevented the detectives' cars from pass- ing, while General O'Duffy's car raced ahead. Making a detour, General O'Duffy eluded his pursuers, and re- turned to Bandon, where he addressed his supporters unmolested. Michael Colllns's ...

FRUIT FREIGHT. "UNFAIR ATTITÜDE" GROWERS' APPEAL. CANBERRA, August 28. Allegations that the ship owners were unfair and high handed in their attitude towards the fruit exporters were made to the Prime -Minister (Mr. J, A, Lyons) to-day. Mr. Lyons was interviewed by the chairman of the Apple and Pear Ex- port Council (Mr. J, B. Young) and Mr. L. Piesse, representatives of Tas- mania at the recent conference in Sydney of the Australian Overseas Transport Association. It was de- clared that the ship owners adopted the attitude that they would as soon as not carry fruit at all, because they regarded it as less profitable than the carriage of butter or meat. The only concessions which the fruit growers might expect were reductions in freight charges, which might be enabled by taxation relief under the Federal Gov- ernment's forthcoming budget. Mr. Lyons expressed disappointment at the attitude of the ship owners, as it was placed before him. Realising the importance of the fruit industry...

KEEN INTEREST. Melbourne Air Race. HIGH SPEED 'PLANES. (Australian Press Association.) LONDON, August 28. In an editorial article to-day the "Yorkshire Post" forecasts that public Interest in the London-Melbourne aerial race next year will rival that in the Schneider Trophy race, though the machines will be without any freakishness necessitated by the rules. It expresses the hope that the race "will produce a number of really fast long-distance ' aircraft, in which America now excels, and in which Britain is so sadly deficient. ' Such machines are urgently needed if civil aviation is to progress." The newspaper suggests that the Government, since it has refused to make further expenditure on high- speed seaplanes, will consider instead the production of aircraft of such Imperial value.

AUSTRALIA'S DEFENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

AUSTRALIA'S DEFENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir,-It is reported that some of the ollioers of the Queensland militia say that "the reduced scheme of estab- lishment relies upon the high pro- ficiency of the nucleus of officers and N.C.O.'s, who, It is hoped, in the event of Invasion would be' able to hold, with the support of returned soldiers, the fort while a local army was being trained." But how would it be possible for these men to take their place in the field at a moment's notice when it Is now many years since they returned from active service? They at' least would need freshening up in spite of their experience to be efficient. When war comes it will dome quickly, with- out warning'-as Mr. Hughes has stated "like a thief in tine night." How would it be possible to mobilise these men and fit them out with the neces- sary equipment and munitions of war at a moment's notice? How could an army be trained with the foe at death grips with us? It is ridiculous on the fa...
