"FARCICAL AND UNTENABLE" Mr. Moloney Describes Position SYDNEY, February 22. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 23 February 1931
"FARCICAL AND UNTENABLE" Mr. Moloney Describes Position SYDNEY, February 22. Commenting today upon the meeting. of the central executive of the A.L.P. on Friday night, at which four mem- bers of the New South Wales section of the Federal Parliamentary Labor Party, headed by the Minister of Mar kets (Mr. Moloney) were present, the Minister said that the delegation was extremely disappointed when it found that the decision was reached before tbey had an opportunity of speaking "I feel sure." he said, "that the posi tion which has been created as the re sult of that decision will appear to every Laborite throughout Australia as farcical hi the extreme, and so unten able that I feel certain wiser counsels will assuredly prevail in order to ter minate a ridiculous situation. If the decision is carried to the extreme, then Federal members representing New South Wales constituencies will be Laborites when tbey go Into other States of the Commonwealth, but will cease to be Laborltes when th...
"ALMOST A HONEYMOON" Another British Success [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 23 February 1931
"ALMOST A HONEYMOON" Another British Success Once more the British talking studios have stolen a march on their rivals, for 'Almost a Honeymoon," which was the fourth of the series of pictures to be presented to an Invitation audience at the York Theatre last nigiiL is one of the funniest films that has reached Adelaide. Taken from the play by Walter Ellis, ibis picture abounds in those rich and risque situations that come even more spontaneously from the screen than they did from the stage. Pert and pretty Dodo Watts Is the girl who spends the night In the same fist as a man without knowing it, and Lamont Dickson, her peculiar fiance, accepts the most compromising statements in a way that would make another man reach for a gun. The poor unfortunate who causes all the trouble is Clifford Mollison, who makes his talkie debut after some years on the stage. That great actor, Donald Calthorp, is a butler in this. "Almost a Honeymoon" is as much a triumph for Monty Banks, the director, a...
CONFERENCE TO MEET SOON Great Principle At Stake SYDNEY. February 22. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 23 February 1931
CONFERENCE TO MEET SOON Great Principle At Stake SYDNEY. February 22. Mr. J.J. Kennealey, President of the Federal executive of the A.L.P. said that he had decided to convene an interstate conference of the party. "The position is of sufficient importance to warrant the calling together of the highest Labor triounal." he declared. "The conference will open In Sydney In three or four weeks. It will consist of six representatives from each of the ax States. The by-election in East Sydney is a detail compared with the big principles involved In party disci pline. It has become a question whether the labor Party's policy should be adopted by an or merely by those who care to adopt It."

"NATIONAL EMERGENCY" Proposal Quickly Discarded Sydney, February 22. For several day the popular cry has For several days we popular cry has been for the declaration of a state of national emergency and, with all sorts of possible developments in mind, tire Trade Union Congress sent a deputa tion in high-powered motors to Can berra to secure this uncertain declara tion. It did not take Mr. Scullin and Mr. Brennan long to show the deputation, first, that there was no provision in the Constitution for such a declara tion, and then that, if the Federal Gov ernment did so. the Constitution would be set aside and any other dozen men who believed they could manage the country better than Scullin and Co. could set themselves the task. The Government view was that It should hang on to power as lons as possible. It was a disillusioned deputation that returned, tired and dusty the temperature was over 100 degrees— and reported to the conference. Dropped Like Live Coal The national emergency "...
"ON APPROVAL" One of Britain's Best [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 23 February 1931
"ON APPROVAL" One of Britain's Best A film of a Frederick Lonsdale play is like a, good cigar—one can enjoy it right down to the last inch. "On Ap- proval," which was screened at West's on Saturday, is as unmistakably from the pen of this famous English play wright as it is from the best of Britain';: talking picture studios. Either would be sufficient to give it the hall-mark of quality, and it is no wonder that audi ences come very near to laughing them selves out of breath at its delightfully unexpected sallies. The dialogue in "On Approval" is full of surprises. Conventions mus; go by the board whenever Lonsdale sers out to make people laugh, and in this Elstree pro duction he has given them something to chuckle over for weeks. The quiet forcefulness of the dialogue, however, is tackled with that easy direcmess so j natural to British actors, and with most I of the cast from "Rookery Nook" in- | eluded, its subtleties take on an almost! classic guise, considering the theme.! Tom...

TREASURY BILLS PAID OFF Pleasurable Shock for London Dealers LONDON, February 21, The official announcement to-day that the Commonwealth was paying oft £5,000*00 of short term Treasury bills maturing on March 2 created a most favorable Impression in the city as a welcome gesture against the rcpudU- Uonists and a useful tonic to inves tors who feared that default was immi nent.

BEER BEING MADE ILLICITLY MINISTER WARNS OFFENDERS [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 23 February 1931
BEER BEING MADE ILLICITLY MINISTER WARNS OFFENDERS Recent investigations by Customs offi- cials have revealed that a number of private persons are engaged in the illi- cit manufacture of beer on their own premises for domestic use or for sale. It is pointed out by the Minister of Customs (IST. Forde) that the making of any beer containing more than t*o per cent, of spirit by any unlicensed person Is illegal. Any beer brewed from standard recipes, including malt and hops, or either of these Ingredients, would be likely to contain more than two per cent, of spirit. In future the excuse by offenders that they were unaware they were com mitting a breach of the excise law will not be accepted, and the Minister has now issued a warning tbat offenders will be prosecuted.

GOVERNMENT WAGE BOARDS Objection to Representation at Appeals [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 23 February 1931
GOVERNMENT WAGE BOARDS Objection to Representation at Appeals Objection has been taken by the Coachmakers' Union to the procedure of the Government in appeals against wage board determinations. Either party to a determination may appeal to the Industrial Court against it, and this has been done in the case ot several recent determinations affecting the various branches of the Govemmeni service. It is usual in such cases for Govern ment officials or a member of the Crown l>aw Department to represent the Government when appeals are heard in the Industrial Court. These, being Government officers, are paid with public money. The contention of the union is that employes are con tributing to the cost of obtaining skilled legal practitioners who oppose their case in the court. The unions, if they require similar assistance, arc compelled to pay the fees of a private member ol the legal profession. It is held that, either the Government should contribute to this payment, or that there sh...

MENACE OF SOVIETISM CALL TO VIGILANCE To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 23 February 1931
MENACE OF SOVIETISM CALL TO VIGILANCE To the Editor Sir—The attitude now taken up by the Federal Labor Party organisations is merely the culmination of many years of agitation and effort to over- throw existing social conditions. Emis saries of the Lang, Beasley, Garden, and Theodore types play opos the cre dulity of the working class, and in their frantic efforts to show they are ramlng their £1,000 a year or more salary-strive to inculcate the pernicious Idea that manual workci? are all "wage slaves" who are being robbed by the capitalistic class. The anger of the mob is almost duly aroused by agita tors, who hold out to men as a means of relief the soul-debasing doctrines of Russia. The socialisation of Industry and banking has been a plank of the Labor Party platform for many years. All 'who love troth and the Empire must unite to save our country. There are among us many embryo Lentas ?who are anxious to lead a revolt against our social system. Australians can save our countey ...
