Professor Raymond Moley, the chief of President Roosevelt's "brain trust," resigned to-day as Assistant Secretary of State, He is to become editor of a new national magazine founded by Mr. Vincent Astor, the multi-millionaire friend of the President. Professor Moley explained to-day that his resignation was prompted by a desire to return to his work of writ- ing and teaching the politics of Gov- ernment. Nevertheless, well-informed sources assert that irreconcilable dif- ferences over questions of policy with the Secretary of State (Mr. Cordell Hull) caused his resignation.'Profes- sor Moley is recognised as an adherent to the nationalist doctrine of economic recovery, whereas Mr. Hull believes that recovery is possible only through International action.

NOVEL POINT. Passengers' Picnic. OVERTIME CLAIMED. MELBOURNE, August 28. Chief Judge Dethridge, in the Arbitration Court to-day, was called upon to decide a novel point in regard to an' overtime claim by the Marine Cooks, Bakers, and Butchers' Association. On Sunday, June 11, the steamer Canberra, while on a voyage from Mel- bourne to Cairns, anchored off Scaw- fell Island, north of Mackay, while the passengers went ashore for a picnic. Members of the galley staff of the Canberra claimed overtime rates for the time during which the vessel was anchored, contending that it was tan- tamount to being tied up in port. The owners repudiated the claim, and a summons was taken out by one of the men claiming overtime pay In respect of this period. Chief Judge Dethridge was asked for an interpre- tation as to whether the .Canberra was in port or at sea at the time. Mr. H. Adams (for the owners) said this was the first time this argument had come before the Arbitration Court. Mr. G. Mooney, fo...

DARING THE BULLETS. Foolish People. NARROW ESCAPES AT ENOGGERA. How the vigilance of riflemen alone is preventing accidents to persons crossing in front of the rifle mounds at Enoggera was revealed at a meeting of the Metropolitan District Rifle Club Union last night. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

DARING THE BULLETS. Foolish People. -* NAJRROW ESCAPES AT ENOGGERA. How the vigilance of riflemen alone is preventing accidents to persons crossing in front of the rifle mounds at Enoggera was re- vealed al a meeting' of the Metro- politan District Rifle Club Union last night. The matter was raised by one of the delegates, who said that last Saturday a cyclist rode in front of the 900 yards mound, and it was only the rifleman's sudden command to "Cease Fire" that prevented a probable accident, which might have had serious consequences. He added that these incidents were of frequent occurrence, and that only re- cently a man had to be chased out of the line of fire. Notices warning the public of the danger should be dis- played. In reply to a question as to who would be responsible if an accident oc- curred, it was ruled that no one would be to blame, as the public was tres- passing on private property and a red flag was flying. Tlie danger spo,t is a military road which crosses in f...

WHILE PLAYING GOLF. Gangster Arrested. (Australian Cable Service.) CHICAGO[?] August 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

WHILE PLAYING GOLF. Gangster Arrested. (Australian Cable Service.) CHICAGO, August 27. "Machine-gun" Jake M'Gurr, Al. Capone's "torpedo" man, who is sus- pected of the St. Valentine Day mas- sacre four years ago, and of the recent kidnapping of Jacob Factor, was arrested to-day while actually playing in the Western United States Open Golf Tournament. The de- tectives, knowing his penchant for golf, were watching the tournaments, but were amazed to find him so publicly displaying his prowess. When he was arrested his score was under par for the first six holes. The police invited him to continue his round, but he took 11 for a par 4 hole, and then he quit. Tile scene of the St. Valentine Day's massacre was an old warehouse, where seven gangsters were lined up, facing a wall, and fired at with machine guns.

MODERN DESIGN. Low Cars Criticised. AMERICAN EXPERT'S VIEWS. In a recent issue of the journal of the Society of Automotive En- gineers (United States) a well known American enjinesr declared that modern cars were built ab- surdly low, and were, therefore, uncomfortable anil unsafe. "¡vrOST persons consider that the lower the centre of gravity of a car is the safer the car will be, be- cause it will be more difficult to cap- size. But even with a high centre of gravity overturning is rare, the writer states, while extreme lowness tends to increase liability to skid. Such cars are expensive to build, need heavy frames, have barely enough ground clearance, and are difficult to work under, while smaller crown wheels and housing' are necessary, leading to more rapid rear axle gear wear. Tlie writer also characterised ordin- ary suspension 'as antiquated, and ad- vocated three-point rather than the present four-point system of chassis suspension as a means toward achiev- ing greater comfo...
