EXCHANGE RE-ACTIONS Sharp Fall in Values REASONS EXPLAINED London, February 7. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 7 February 1948

EXCHANGE RE-ACTIONS Sharp Fall in Values REASONS EXPLAINED London, February 7. Prices dropped sharply on the Stock Exchange yesterday. The reasons for this are the fear that the Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir Stafford Cripps) will introduce the limitation of profits and dividends in his next budget, the possibility of a general wages dispute and the Waff Street fall. The gilt edged section, which improved quietly on small investors support, provided the only relief to the gloomy picture. Lower price levels, however, have not caused extensive liquidation.

Britain's Economy FUTURE IN THE BALANCE "We Have Nothing to Spare" CHANCELLOR'S VIEWS London, February 7. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 7 February 1948

I Britain's Economy m — FUTURE IN THE BALANCE 'We Have Nothing to Spare' CHANCELLOR'S VIEWS London. February 7. i The whole future of Britain hangs in the balance according to Chancellor j of the Exchequer (Sir {Stafford Cripps). I Iu a speech at Edinburgh, 'without i being an alarmist,' he urged industrial- I ists to realise this. 'We have nothing to spare and the world is so unsettled that we never know what difficulties we may have to meet,' he said. The question of Britain's overseas trade was urgent and immediate, he continued. There was little more that she could, do by cutting down imports, although undoubtedly she would be driven to do something in this direc tion to diminish adverse balance pay ments, unless she exported more to the 4 right markets.

An English King Historic London Statue EVENTFUL STORY Released from his war-time protec tive capacity King Charles I. now sits again ou his horse, looking down Whitehall to the spot where he was beheaded. He occupies the site of the old Charing! Cross, erected by Edward I in memory of his wife, Queen Eleanor, which stood until 1647 — three hundred years ago — when it was torn down by the Puritans. The present Charing Cross in the station yard 's only a copy and is in the wrong place. Charles' statue has had an eventful history. It is the work of Hubert Le Soeur, a French sculptor, and was made for the Lord High Treasurer Weston for the adornment of the grounds of his country bouse at Jioe hauipton.

Sheffield Shield Cricket ^ ? Western Australia's Big Score QUEENSLAND'S RECOVERY Brisbane, February 7. Western Australia's innings were continued by Kessey anil O'Dwyer when the Sheffield Shield Cricket match against Queensland was resum ed at Brisbane this afternoon. Both opened confidently and the scoring rate was impressive until the partnership was broken, when Kessey was caught by ElHs off the bowling of Raymer. O'Dwyer continued to impress until he also fell a victim to the accurate bowl ing of Raymer for 46 runs. There after wickets fell cheaply and Western Australia's innings closed for 446 runs. Raymer finished by taking six wickets for 90 runs and was the only one of rtae bowlers to trouble the batsmen. Queensland opened with Cook and Rogers and although the latter scored 47 runs he was never impressive. He seemed ill at ease, particularly against O'Dwyer, though Puckett eventually got his wicket. Morris was the star of the Queeuslanders and his sixty-eight runs was compil...

Learning Hindustani Some Tongue-Twisters LUCID EXPLANATIONS? [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 7 February 1948

Learning Hindustani Some Tongue-Twisters LUCID EXPLANATIONS? Are you, or is any member of your family going (-- the Far East? If so, you will want to learn Hindustani— a language spoken, in one form or (mother, by close on 100,000,000 people —the third largest language community in the world, coming next after Chinese aud English (writes F. R. Mason in ?Tit-Bits'). Fortunately, the language can be learned — according to the author of a new book, 'Colloquial Hindustani' — with 'ease' and speed.' To speak it fluently it would appear Ihjiit one needs only to be an acrobat and a contor tionist. Consider, for example, the pronuncia tion of a consonant known as 'the eiiroUex flapped r.' This is an exceedingly .simple matter, as will be seen from the following instructions: — 'The body of the tongue is withdrawn with the blade curled back. Having your teeth apart try t-» point towards the hack. of your mouth witli the tip of the tongtie, but do not touch any where. From that position the b...

War Material Sales Disposal of Surplus INTERESTING FIGURES The Disposals Commission, which is selling off surplus war material, has passed the £100,000,000, writes C C. Eager in the 'Melbourne Hwrald.' It has been turning over a steady average of £1,000,000 per week since November, and will continue at that rate for at least another year. Its sale sheets contain 50.000 slisrhtlv used collar studs found under the floor of a woman's Land Army hut in Queensland. Most useless of the whole lot were probably the six barrage balloons brought from England for one Com monwealth Government Department's J war advertising. But they came with out their mooring apparatus, and it appeared nobody here knew much about looking after barrage balloons, any- j way. The Department lost interest. Next official reference to the balloons | was on a Disposals Commonwealth auction catalogue. Mr. C. Kirby, of Ballarat, who flew by balloon in 190S, bought one for £9.
