MORE CARE NEEDED. APPEAL TO CYCLISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

MORE CARE NEEDED. APPEAL TO CYCLISTS. PRACTICALLY every motorist in Brisbane has been faced at one time or another with a difficult situa- tion arising through the negligence or carelessness of a cyclist. At one time it has arisen through the gregarious instinct leading them to ride three or four abreast in the road, at another through a rider careering across an intersection or turning wide out of a side street, at another through rid- ing at night without light or reflector, and at another through the foolish habit of clinging to the rear of a lorry or other motor vehicle. The R.A.C.Q. appeals to bicycle riders in the city to exercise greater care in these mat- ters. It frequently happens that only care and skilful driving on the part of a motorist prevents accidents happen- ing from one or other of the causes mentioned. The ever-increasing volume of traffic on city streets calls for the exercise of greater care by cyclists and the club hopes they will heed this timely appeal.

5,000,000 FACE STARVATION. Famine in Russia. PEASANTS PRISONERS IN VILLAGES. According to Press messages which have reached London 5,000,000 Russians arc facing death from starvation. The famine in the Northern Caucasus is declared to be more acute than in 1921.l LONDON, August 28. A special correspondent of the "Daily Telegraph," who is an expert observer in the Northern Caucasus, in an article to-day gives a striking re- velation of the famine conditions that exist there. "Bread has completely disappeared," he says, "from the dietary of the peasant owner, who has resigned himself to despair, and complete apathy charac- terises the people. The starving peasant is practically a prisoner in his village, and he must remain and await the end. In some villages in the Northern Caucasus the population is almost extinct, but the authorities will not acknowledge that a famine exists, though without a doubt it is more acute than in 1921, when hun- dreds of thousands of persons were saved by ...

SYDNEY AWARD. Lismore's Protest. MAY SEEK INJUNCTION. LISMORE, August 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

SYDNEY AWARD. Lismore's Protest. MAY SEEK INJUNCTION. LISMORE, August 28. "Mr. Roland Foster's contention that the total points are first written on the adjudication papers and the sec- tional points then allotted to corre- spond is the heib..u of absurdity, as any one familiar with eisteddfodau must know," said Mr. T. Walsh, organ- ising secretary of the Lismore Diggers' and Citizens' Choir, who',' with' most of the choir members returned to Lis- more this afternoon. Mr. Walsh referred to an incident in the male voice choir competition at the Sydney Eisteddfod, when Lis- more discovered that the sectional points had been wrongly totalled and protested on the ground that the cor- rect total placed Lismore equal with the Sydney Male Voice Choir, the winners of the competition. Mr. Walsh also stated that Mr. Hart said on Saturday evening: "I know a terrible mistake has been made, and It must be rectified." Mr. Walsh said a protest had been left in the hands of Mr. T. Rummery, a solici...

FIND WORK FOR 800 MEN. Railway Schemes. ?-. EMBRACE THE CITY AND COUNTRY. Mainly to relieve the Brisbane City Council of the task of finding useful work for the ever-increas- ing number of relief workers, the Minister for Labour and Industry (Mr. M. P. Hynes), with the co- operation of the Commissioner for Railways (Mr. J. W. Davidson), is having works approved which will absorb 800 men. Five hundred of these men will be employed in and around the metro- politan area, though the general scheme will extend over a wide area and will embrace such places Ipswich, Toowoomba, and Dalby. The work on which these men will be employed will be known as "im- provement work." The Minister said that he could not at this stage give details of this improvement work, but it was work that unless done by relief labour could not, on account of the finances, otherwise be dene, or at least done for a long time to come.

The gross decrease in the debt, which was £17,689,528 at the end of 1931-32, was £553,995, but new loans amounting to £329,907 reduced the net improvement to £17,465,440.

FATES OF STOWAWAYS DILEMMA IN BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

FATES OF STOWAWAYS | DILEMMA IN BEITAIN. Stowaways are increasing in numbers in Britain to such an extent that' the Governor of Winchester Prison, Mr. E. G. Humphrey, is finding diffi- culty in arranging for their accom- modation Addressing the Southamp- ton branch of the Prisoners' Aid Society recently, he said that more than 100 stowaways were committed from Southampton last year. "Stowaways," Mr. Humphrey said, "are mostly young men, some of them only boys, and in no sense of the word can they be considered criminals They are only doing what we our- selves would do. They have left theil own country hoping to obtain work abroad, and, having ¿ailed to do so through no fault of their own, have endeavoured to get back to their native land by the only possible way open to them. "Those stowaways who are still under 21 are in every case sent back to their homes, and assistance is given to the older ones."

EXHIBITION SPECTACLES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

EXHIBITION SPECTACLES. TO THE EDITOR OF THB COURIER-MAIL. Sir.-Some little time ago , mild criticisms appeared in your corres- pondence columns suggesting that in- hibition programmes might be im- proved or made more attractive. There is such a thing as committees of all kinds taking it easy, or, rather, to use a' better and more generous phrase, getting into a groove. Now, I take it the object of our annual Show is to advertise our pro- ducts, to encourage producers and manufacturers in various ways, to bring visitors to Brisbane, to instruct, interest, and amuse those who patronise the Exhibition by personal visits, and, in short, to give them a good time. Like others, I've often been given the same reply when questioning acquaintances, "Oh, yes, I'll go, perhaps; but it's the same old Show." Now, there is some truth in this criticism. Of course the Show is always new and always a novelty to those younger people and others who have not seen It before. But can't it be made a bit mo...
