THE WAILING WALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 February 1930
THE WAILING WALL. The recent trouble in Palestine has centred round \vhat is known as the Wailing Wall at Jerusalem. This wall, which consists of giant blocks of limestone, is the last visible ma sonry of Herod's Temple. Beyond it is the Mosque of Omar, or the Dome, of the Rock, which Moslems regard as one oi men most saaea In the shadow of the wall Jews in little groups, or in congregations led by a Rabbi, bewail 'the Temple that was destroyed,' 'the walls that are.j overthrown,' the 'majesty that is departed' — in a word, the ancient glories of their race. All round the Wall is Moslem pro perty, and although, ten years ago, the Jews offered to buy the courtyard under it at any reasonable price, this offer was refused. One feature that may be observed about all the Jews at the Wall is the' long lock of hair on either side of the brow. These ringlets have a religious significance — the Jew believes that, when his appointed day comes, his guardian angel will catch hold of him, and so...

To be smart it must be held tightly round the figure. One little man nequin told me^her fingers ached through clutching coats as tightly as Fashion decrees! Incidentally, I overheard the de-j signer sneer at the idea of placing a' single lovely jewelled button on a brocaded wrap. 'No, madame, I could, not Spoil , the rich and careless effect!

TALKIE NEWSPAPERS. The Newest Cinema Idea is a Fourteen-Hour Programme of News-Reel Daily. ; I Will sound news films and topi cal budgets ever Jo away with newspapers and magazines? j Cinema managers declare that the most popular item on any program j is the talkie ripws and nnw in NpwI York they have gone a step farther and devoted one theatre to the show ing of sound news-reels only. This is surely the most novel] cinema in the world. The show starts at ten o'clock in the morning and goes on continuously until mid night. There are no very cheap or very expensive seats. A seat costs you. a shilling anywhere in the house] at any time of the day. I For your shilling you get an hour's entertainment. There are two news films for the current week, such as we get in England, and the usual one-reel sound feature film sent out to all cinemas.

The maid's frocks* acceniuatr-d the! fitted waistlire with narrow belts of1 inch and a half width, often finished with jewelled buckles to harmonise with the color of the frocks. Wide hip bands and yokes, suggesting a I waistline rather than moulding it tightly, were features of frocks for, fuller figures, and made more flatter- j ing than belts to waistlines not as slim as they might be. j un many irocKs tne luuness was placed just above the knee level.

HOW MANY ROPES ON A SHIP ? [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 February 1930
HOW MANY ROPES ON A - SHIP ? If you were to ask the landsman how many ropes there are in the ; rigging of a sailing ship he would probably guess a thousand or more.' Looking up at the tangled top of any sailing vessel in the docks you would be inclined to think it an al most impossible task to count them. Yet it is a very easy matter, for there are only five. There is some sort of catch about it, of course; but the fact remains that- onlq five ieces of gear on a . ship are called 'ropes'; the rest are lines, sheets, gaskets, and the like, j The five ropes are the man-rope, or what a landsman might call the rope 'hand-rail' of the accommoda tion ladded; the foot-rope, which is stirruped beneath the yard from mast to jrard-arm, iand on which the men stand when handing sail; the bolt-1 rope, that is the rope that edges the sail as the men of a handker-' chief; the bucket rope, or bucket handle; and the bell-rope. j Some old sailors will suggest the tow-rope as a sixth, but that is not ...

THE BOOK LOVER Mr. Robert Graves writes thus to 'Everyman': — Your reviewer of. mjr book, 'Good-bye to AH That,' refers to a mythical Mrs. Graves, my wife. Such a_ person does not exist. I made it very Plain in the book that Nancy Nicholson, whom I married, never took my name, as she was legally entitled not to do, and - it is there fore false courtesy on your reviewer's behalf to award it to her.

'THIRTIES' AS BIG YEARS. i Landmarks in the History of the Universe. Advance in Arts, Crafts and Sciences. I . ? The year 1.930, which is so young) as yet, contains many 'centiversary' dates of unusual interest, especially in the. arts, crafts, and sciences. Will the coming year follow in the foot steps of the' thirties of other years, and prove- a. landmark in history? ! Fourier, the great French mathe matician, died in 1830, and so did I nenry ijeii, the Scottish engineer, who put down the first steamboats in ;Great Britain, on the Clyde.

BOOK REVIEWS NEW TERROR AND OLD Silence, by Andrew Soutar. Hut chinson and Co. Exits and Farewells, by Marjorie Bowen, Selwyn and Blount. In 'Silence,' Andrew Soutar suc ceeds in making the reader's heart beat a veritable tatt-oo, even to the extent of makins- credible tVip rmh lishers' claim that two eminent edi-., tors confessed to being terrified; whilst reading the manuscript. j It is a post-war story in which the author gives one the impression of ! having read all the recent war novels ] and made up his mind to provide i something different. If that was his; intention, again he succeeds. 'The snow on the mountain-tops is the last earthly stop on the way' to a great and glorious silence,' fol lowing the most harrowing adven tures of the characters, who include the coolest customers in tlie Secret Service of Whitehall. The arch-fiend who metes out 'in-' stantaneous death with a 'bullet'' which pierces but a single pore, de fies the detection of the slickest sleuths of the univer...

She was well back in thp field until were turned for home, but she came through in great style -and was only beaten over the last bit. Thetis was the outsider of the race. Phoenix, which has been on the West Coast for a long time, showed that he is coming back to form by filling third place. He was last in the eaily stages, but finished fast in the straight. Oberon was heavily sup-' ported, but was never dangerous.! Balisand ran better here than he did, in the Novice. He did a fair amount; of the pacing, and finished up inj fourth place.

Trial. Frying Marco followed up her Novice success by winning the Trials. As in the previous event she. was a long way out of her grourd in the early stages, and was not sighted until halfway down the straight, where she was coming on at a great pace, and contnued on to take thej stake with comfort. i Stimulant aeain did most of the pacing after Santa Lucia had taken; a turn, and although he ran his race' out well Flying Marco was again too' good for him.
