CREATURES OF THE WILD Only Names To Many People KNOWN TOO LITTLE By ELIZABETH GEORGE [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931

CREATURES OF THE WILD Only Names To Many People KNOWN TOO LITTLE By ELIZABETH GEORGE SPRING days are here, with sun-<*> shine that tempts us into the country. This is the time of the rear when walking is delightful. And even if walking is an effort compared with riding at ease In a motor car, it has many compensations if you know how to find them. Motor cars meet other motor cars, dust, flies, and lizards, but on toot there is no telling what you may meet. The other day, walking through a scrub full of everlastings and bffly buttons, I came upon what looked very like a hen's nest in the grass. There ■were two small, furry occupants, wedged tightly together, their short ears flat tened and their miniature tan paws strecthed neatly side by side. Never in my life before had I met baby hares nor had I imagined them so tame and sleepy, indifferent to a stroking hand. Strangers They looked so soft and defenceless there—their wild nature yet unawake —that I went on my way a l...

LETTER FROM LONDON THE DRAMA OF DOWNING-STREET From Palette to Prize Ring; MAN WHO MADE FEVER PORTS SAFE LONDON, August 27. By R. T. FOSTER THE political crisis, develop-<*> ing with the suddenness of a summer storm, has played [?] with the holidays of the Parliamentary leaders, but it has proved a godsend to tbe tourists and trippers who flock to London in August. With the more earnest of these visi tors No. 10, Downing-street, is always a shrine of pilgrimage. Americans, armed with red guide; books, gaze through hom-rimmed spec tacles at its unpretentious doorway. Germans, sometimes 20 or 30 in a docile narty stand solemnly at attention while t£e courier wq?1i?i"« that the Prime i Minister lives in No. 10, and the Chan- j ceUor of the Exchequer in No. 1L Not very inr<vdT'E residences for such reflect—not nearly go impressive as the lofty corridors and spacious quadrangles of tbe Foreign Office over the way.

CIVIL SERVICE CUTS Will Operate From Today [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931

CIVIL SERVICE CUTS Will Operate From Today The additional 10 per cent cut in the salaries of officers of the civil ser-   vice making the full 20 per cent under the Premiers' Plan—will operate from today. The saving to the Government,   on the basis of the present salaries and wages bill, will be approximately £600,000 a year, compared with the 1929-30 rates. In two years the outlay in wages has been reduced by £300,000 as the re- sult of retrenchments and cuts. The effect on salaries is not so marked owing to the offset of the cost of departments, such as unemployment and general public relief, arising from the depression. Tne additional 10 per cent. reduction in the salaries of members of the civil service was notified a fortnight ago, and the board of management of the State Bank gazetted a reclassiflcation of its officers on September 24. This will operate from October 8. Apart from the manager, who was dealt with in the Financial Emergency Act, the hig...

LESS LIQUOR CONSUMED £1,856,433 Spent Last Year South. Australians, whether by force of circumstances or from choice, are drinking less alcoholic liquor. Since 1926-27, the "wettest" year, when the drink bill represented £5 9/4 per inhabitant, there has been a con- stant annual fall.

The total consumption in 1929-30 represented a value of £2,577,087, which was reduced by 28 per cent, to £1,856,433 for 1930-31.

The "Southern Cross" had been over hauled, and was now in as good con dition as ever; our 'plane and arrange ments for the flight to England were wen advance* we had learned many lessons from our first attempt; and the "Southern Cross" was now equipped with many additions which ...

SORTING OUT PARTIES Problem at Parliament House ALLOCATING ROOMS [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931

SORTING OUT PARTIES Problem at Parliament House ALLOCATING ROOMS For the present there is not likely to be any move at Parliament House to allocate rooms for new parties. This development will depend largely on uevtuopjutan, win <iepeua largely on the nature of the reply which the Par liamentary Labor Catty receives from the federal executive in the appeal against the expulsion by the Trades TTaT; socialisation group of t*?? members who supported the Premiers' Plan. It appears to be Inevitable, however, that eventually the Speaker (Mr. Shepherd) will have to consider the problem of accommodating at least one new poli tical organisation. This is fais-func tion, in association with the House committee, of which he is chairman. The Premier (Mr. Hill) has made It clear that his Parliamentary followers will remain in the room always used by the Labor Party. At the most cau cus expects to lose only five mppiiiprs If full obedience is given to the latest instruction from the Tra...

The explanation was considered unsatisfactory. Mr Fromen also stated that the Dairy Export Board had been -told by tbfiDeparttnent of Markets that Mr. M.
