LITERATURE RECENT PUBLICATIONS POT-POURRI [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931
LITERATURE RECENT PUBLICA TIONS POT-POURRI The Nineteen Hundreds." By Regi-&lt;*> nald Auberon. London: George Allen and Unwin. As a contributor at various times to many British journals, and moving j freely among the clubs and public j resorts, Mr. Auberon could no: help i mat-ing the acquaintance of many in teresting people, and we have the result hi these entertaining pages. He is an admirable raconteur, with a great knowledge of personalities and a flair! for the sort of things about them| which people like to read, resembling | a little, in this respect, Samuel Rogers, j the poet, who, when asked why hisj stories took so frequently an ill-natured turn, replied that it was only, when they took this turn that ne could a hearing. His voice was none j too musical, and somewhat repelled listeners, except when used to regale them with, gossip about the pecca dillos of other people. j Andrew Carnegie "I speak as I find," is Mr. Auberon's motto. The mood hi which he found An...
MEDICAL TESTS IN RAILWAYS M.P.'s Seek Modification [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931
MEDICAL TESTS IN RAILWAYS M.P.'s Seek Modification A modification of the medical and eyesight tests in the Railway Depart- &nbsp; ment was urged by a deputation of members of Parliament to the Minister of Railways (Mr. Denny) yesterday. Mr. Critchley said laborers, tem- porary packers in maintenance, and tradesmen and their assistants should not be required to undergo a medical examination until they had served for at least 12 months. A medical appeal board consisting of the Inspector- General of Hospitals and two other practitioners should be appointed to decide any appeal from an employe against the decisions of the railways medical officer. Traffic men should not be disqualified if they did not pass a practical eyesight test with fixed sig- nals at a maximum distance of 600 yards. Medical certificates should be paid for by the department or, alter- natively, a certificate signed by a lodge secretary should be accepted. Mr. Warne pointed out that many excellent men were lo...
S. AFRICANS TO SAIL TODAY Manager Discusses Players CAFE TOWN, October 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931
S. AFRICANS TO SAIL TODAY Manager Discusses Players CAPE TOWN, October 2. The south African cricketers, who will tour Australia this season, as- &nbsp; sembled here today, and were bidden farewell at a mayoral lunch. They will sail at noon tomorrow. The manager (Mr. Tandy) said the team were a young lot, as keen as mustard, and enthusiastically antici- pating the tour. "We won the rubber against the last M.C.C. team on hard matting wickets. The Australian wickets will be a diffe- rent proposition," he said. "All feel they are going to learn something, especially how to score on a plumb wicket, which will be profit- able when the next team visits Eng- land." Discussing the merits of the team, Mr. Tandy said—"We are probably in similar circumstances to Australia as regards bowling. We may not have a Grimmett, but we have triers. I am satisfied our fielding will be a tre- mendous asset. Bell and Quinn, our medium and fast bowlers, should be faster in Australia. Vincent, a left ...

MAN SHOOTS WOMAN THEN KILLS HIMSELF Tragedy in Fifth Creek Cottage ATTACK WITH SHOTGUN WHILE MOTHER IS FEEDING BABY Husband Horrified Spectator A man tried desperately to kill a woman with a shotgun and then shot himself dead at Fifth Creek last night. While Mrs. Gera Emmerton (32), was feeding her six months' old baby by a fire in the front room of a cottage, known as the "Nookery" tea rooms, at Fifth Creek, about 8 p.m., &nbsp; Charles James Hunter, 36, an unemployed gardener, fired at her with a shotgun from point blank range. The charge caused terrible injuries to the right side of her face. Hunter, who had been unsuspectingly let into the room by Mrs. Emmerton's husband, then rushed from the room, round to the back of the house and into the kitchen, where he placed the gun in his mouth, and blew away the greater part of the right side of his face and head. He lived only about five minutes. Mrs. Emmerton is in the Adelaide Hospital. Her condition is grave. Following a di...

"HOARY PIFFLE" Premier on Mr. Cameron's Letter BUDGET APPOINTMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931
"HOARY PIFFLE" Premier on Mr. Cameron's Letter BUDGET APPOINTMENT Protesting that the public re- quired performances from Parlia- mentarians, and not "hoary party political piffle," the Premier (Mr. Hill) said yesterday that he had no &nbsp; time to reply to the letter sent to him by Mr. Cameron, M.P., regarding Cabi- net's criticism of his speech attacking the Crown Law Department for an opinion it had given about the Farmers Relief Act. Speaking from Renmark last night, Mr. Cameron retorted that the Pre- mier's suggestion that his position on the Budget Committee should now be considered was quite irrelevant, because Mr. Hill was not responsible for the appointment; in fact, he was opposed to it. "Get on With the Job" The Premier stated yesterday after- noon that he had received Mr. Came- ron's letter just before midday not- withstanding that it had been handed to the press the day before. "The observations of Mr. Cameron are typical of that gentleman," said Mr. Hill. "The...

BIG MATCH TODAY Premiership Battle STURT AND NORTH Crowd of 39,000 Expected By "ROVER" [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931
BIG MATCH TODAY Premiership Battle STURT AND NORTH Crowd of 30,000 Expected By "ROVER" There are no big counter-attrac- &nbsp; tions in the metropolitan area today, and if the weather is fine more than 30,000 people should see a great struggle for the 1931 league football premiership between North Adelaide and Sturt at the Adelaide Oval. The teams, on paper at least, are remarkably evenly matched. In no part of the field is there any indica- tion that either (side will establish a marked ascendancy over the other. North's convincing defeat of Port Adelaide in the final established it as public-favorite for the premiership, but the doubt regarding the fitness of Tay- lor and Barrett to play today, makes it uncertain whether North will be at full strength. Their absence would leave gaps in attack and defence which would be difficult to fill satisfactorily. Sturt, on the other hand, has re- fused to take the slightest risk, and although it defeated Port by only one point, pract...

INDUSTRIAL UNREST IN GERMANY Wage Reductions and Longer Hours the Cause BERLIN, October 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931
INDUSTRIAL UNREST IN GERMANY Wage Reductions and Longer Hours the Cause BERLIN, October 1. Wage reductions and increases in working hours are causing widespread irritation in mining districts, and numerous strikes in the Ruhr, though the miners' unions are urging their members to accept Government control of wages. There is also industrial unrest in Hamburg, where shipowners are in- sisting on wage cuts, and increased hours. Communists are exploiting the situation by demanding a general strike. Berlin metal employers also propose the cancellation of all agreements, with a view to reducing the wages of 150,000 workers.
NARROW ESCAPE FROM DROWNING Canoe Overturns in Port River [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931
NARROW ESCAPE FROM DROWNING Canoe Overturns in Port River Two young men had a narrow escape from drowning in the Port Adelaide River yesterday, when the canoe in which they were paddling overturned. They were Ronald Eric Thompson (21), laborer, of Birkenhead, and Frederick George Harrison (17), deck hand, of Birkenhead. Shortly after 3 o'clock they left the Birkenhead' side of the Port River in a 5 ft. canoe, and were paddling across to Robinson's Bridge on the Port Ade- laide side. Near the Gulf Berth Wharf the canoe suddenly overturned, throw- ing its occupants into the river. A strong wind was blowing and the water was rough. They had to swim about 50 yards to the nearest pile. After going about 15 yards Harrison appeared to be overcome, and called to Thomp- son for help. Thompson returned, and, grabbing Harrison by the arms, helped him to safety. After they had had a good rub down the youths were &nbsp; little the worse for their experience.

Horace Hilton Bassard, of Ann-street Church of Christ, is claiming £900 from Henry Reynolds Elvery, an elder of the church.

REJECTS CHURCH'S INVITATION A.L.P. Will Not Attend On Industrial Sunday BITTER REPLY TO BISHOP [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931
REJECTS CHURCH'S INVITATION A.L.P. Will Not Attend On Industrial Sunday BITTER REPLY TO BISHOP The Labor Party has rejected the invitation to members to at- tend a special service in St. Peter's Cathedral on Industrial Sunday (October 11), and in a letter to the Bishop of Adelaide (Dr. Thomas), the secretary (Mr. F. F. Ward) draws attention to the Bishop's "recent public utter- ances in support of the policy of oligarchy." The Bishop forwarded the invita- tion at the request of the Synod of the diocese, and his letter states:— "Avoiding all party issues, we shall endeavor to emphasise our essential brotherhood in the Christian family and to turn men's thoughts to the principles of Jesus Christ and their application to our daily life. "For 10 years Industrial Sunday has been kept in England, and this year more than 400 prominent employers, members of the Government, and trade unions joined in issuing invitations for the observance of the day.

CONTROL OF LABOR MACHINE Melbourne Trades Hall Fight Melbourne, October 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931
CONTROL OF LABOR MACHINE Melbourne Trades Hall Fight Melbourne, October 2. Attempts which are being made by union officials at the Trades Hall to obtain control of the labor machine in the political sphere, led to a stormy meeting of the central executive of the Victorian Labor Party tonight. The dispute had been brewing since the acceptance by the Scullin Ministry and the Hogan Ministry of the econo- mies contained in the Premiers' Plan, and the industrial section alleged that Labor members had sacrificed prin- ciples for which Labor stood. Representatives of the political and industrial sections were almost equally divided on the executive, and a bitter debate occurred. The president (Mr. Calwell) gave a ruling that the industrial conference had no power to demand assurances from Labor members. A long discussion lasting until nearly midnight, followed this ruling, but the &nbsp; executive was unable to reach a de- finite decision, and the meeting was adjourned.

WORLD DRAWS NEARER TO TELEVISION Actuality Now, New Wonder May Be Entertainment Soon BROADCAST ON TINY RADIO WAVES? JUST a little way along the road opened up to the present-day world by wireless is television for all.
