DRAFT ALLOWANCE Woolgrowers Opposed BIG ANNUAL LOSS [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
DRAFT ALLOWANCE Woolgrowers Opposed BIG., ANNUAL LOSS Surprise is expressed.by, members of the Stockowners' Association at the news from London that the British Wool Federation is pledging its mem bers not to buy Australian wool unless the draft allowance to buyers of 3 lb. a bale of wool is allowed to stand. Early in June the association through its representative on the Australian Woolgrowers' Council, conferred with the National Council of Woolselling Brokers, and received an assurance from that body that it was in complete accord with the Stockowners' Associa tion in its endeavors to abolish the system of draft allowance. At that conference it was decided to arrange a conference between the Buyers' As sociation and the Woolselling Brokers in London. Whether the cable news was sent from London subsequent to the suggested conference is not clear. If it be true that the Woolbuyers' Association, through the British Wool Federation, has adopted such an arbi trary attitude, it is like...
ROYAL WEDDING PRESENT A Wonderful Clock [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
ROYAL WEDDING PRESENT A Wonderful Clock Among the wedding presents to the Duke of York and Lady Elizabeth Bowes Lyon was a famous clock that came from Glasow. It was made by John Smith, of Pittenweem, Fife, in 1804, in the hope that it would be acquired by George III. It is a wonderful piece of mechanism. It shows the phases of the moon and the day of her age. It has a carillon of six teen bells on which it chimes every quar ter of an hour, and has eight different changes of these chimes. At the fourth quarter it plays an air and then strikes the hour; it has a selection of eight airs for this purpose. At 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock; after striking the hour it plays a march, and at an opening in the right hand of the dial, which representsc Whitehall, ap pear and pass round in procession figures of the King, Queen, ana all the members of the Royal Family as at 1804.

TESTINO THE HEART New Electrical Apparatus A new method for testing the human heart to determine before an operation how much of a "load" it is capable of carrying without endangering the life of the patient is being employed at the New Haven General Hospital, according to a statement made to the Legislative Appro priation Committee by Dr. Willard Cole Rapp!eye, superintendent of the institu tion.

Facilities developed at the institution for the diagnosis of typhus, put ...

FUEL FOR CHEAP POWER To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
FUEL FOR CHEAP POWER To the Editor. M~r. W. E. Edson: In your first issue you had an article on cheaper power, and speak only of Leigh Creek brown coal. 'iMay I point out that not only have we good deposits at Moorland and Inker man, but, better still, as the result of nine bores out down by the Mines l)e Spartment for the "Horseshoo Cqal ?I?n in- Syndicate," we have proved the existence of a seam of the best ranging from 14 ft. 6 in. in the old shaft to 30 ft. 6 in., extending fully 80 chains by60 chains, and the Government is still boring. This !s at Noarlunga. only 24% miles south by rail the railway station bein@g practlcally in its centro. Tests have proved that one and balf tons air dried will give when pul verised equal, if not greater, heating than one ton of Newcastle. Carefully worked-out costs show 23/6, as against 40/ Newcastle coal on the above basis. Adelaide, July 35.

WHAT OUR READERS THINK NORTH-SOUTH RAILWAY To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
iWHAT OUR READERS THINK NORTH-SOUTH RAILWAY To the Editor. Mr. James Barclay: We have the most valuable and largest tract of coltmtryI in the civilised world, the finest asset any coufitry could possibly have, in the unAeveloped Northern Ter ritory. Our State made a contract with the National Government which has not been fulfilled, and apparently never will be unless v;e as a peop!e assert ourselves and insist on the direct Northdouth line being carried out, or hand us back our own country and let us arrange to build the line ourselves. It is full time that something defi nite was done. It is no use our waiting and trusting to politicians to do this work. Let us as a people be up and doing. I would suggest that we form a committee at once, and ask every muniutpal corporation, every district council, every public body in South Australia to pass motions that the con tract maLde be carried out at once or hand us back our Territory with acom pensation for loss and delay. If this were d...
ORGANISATION OF MIGRATION [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
ORGANISATION OF MIGRATION Migration is a national question, involving every part of the British Empire, appealing with equal force to Britain and Dominions, only from different standpoints. Britain has surplus population to dispose of and the Dominions have empty spaces which must be peopled. It seems too simple to be dignified with the name of problem, but back of it are big considerations. Suitability of the migrant, physically and industrially, to fill the required niche in the Dominions is no less a fundamental condition than that the1 migrant should be so treated and handled upon arrival that the best use may be made of him and that he may be readily and advantageously ab-! sorbed into the sphere for which he is fitted. To achieve that there must' be the fullest organisation and collaboration among all parties concerned1 right along the line. .Haphazard spilling out of human beings into Australia, or any other Dominion, leaving chance to determine whether they secure appropriat...
ATTRACTING CONGREGATIONS "Don't Want Tea and Coffee" WHAT CLERGYMEN THINK [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
ATTRACTING CONGREGATIONS "Don't Want Tea and Coffee" WHAT CLERGYMEN THINK Opinions of clergymen are varied on the latest method of popularising churchgoing adopted by the Rev. T. McDougall, of Mudgee (Sydney) Pres byterian Church, who invites his con gregation to coffee and biscuits after the sermon. Some consider anything to make church popular should be commended. Others think that if people have to be dragged to church the clergymen might ,as well "shut up shop." The Rev. Frederick Wcbb, of Holy Trinity, said he th9ught that good congregational sing~ig and rship were necessary, and woultd hlp to? make church pouplar. He thought it wa.s a good plan for the clergymen, if iossible, to speak to the people as they left the church. One reason why people ;did not go to church was because they could not join in the service and hymrns. He had visited several cathedrals during the past few months and noticed that few of the congre-' gation attempted to join in the wor ship. Notices should ...
