GHOSTS IN THE ALPS [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 8 October 1928
GHOSTS IN THE ALPS ? ? ? ? During the past hundred years the poets and novelists of England have nearly all come under the spell of the Swiss landscape, drawn to its mountains again and again not' by fear, but by affection; and to-day the mnyi . urli/\ 1C Q lnvov r»f hnnVs nc wpII as of scenery can quite easily people the country with the illustrious ghosts — phantom figures of passion and beauty like Ferdinand Lassalle and his Helene, merry wraiths like Mark Twain, some of whos&H comic pages, inspired by Swiss adventures, are among the worlds immortal drol leries, rapturously eloquent ones like Ruskin, and charming and wellcon sorted ones like Henry James.

LET AUSSIE DO IT MANUFACTURERS AND FINANCE [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 8 October 1928
LET AUSSIE DO IT MANUFACTURERS AND FINANCE Australian manufacturers are fre quently twitted with the statement that their industries are not efficient ly managed. One of the excuses put forward ta justify delays in affording tariff protection is that inefficient in dustries should not be spoon-fed. This kind of propaganda is most unjust. The fact is that Australian manunfacturers are compelled to be efficient through force of circum stance not_ equalled in many other countries. In the majority of cases the tariff is just sufficient to lean men into embarking upon industrial undertakings, but inadequate really to give them the elbow-room neces sary. The result is to keep going they must operate along keen and efficient lines. A further serious handicap is the difficulty of securing adequate fi nancial backing. The banks are far more ready to back .importations ?than local manufactures; A study of the position forces the conclusion that just as primary pro ducers receive special banki...

AUSTRALIANS IN FRANCE I HOW THEY WERE FED I Three members of the Australian Tour de France team- — Messrs. H. Watson, P. Osborn, and F. Bain bridge returned to Melbourne last wee;k by the R.M.S. Orsova. Harry Watson, the New Zealand member of the team, stated that the trip had been a most wonderful one and the team had greatly appreciated the fine sporting spirit shown by the Con tinental riders and the French press.

The con ditions of the race have been evolved to suit European racing, and give little or no chance to oversea visit ing contestants. As a result of the publicity focussed on the hopeless chance of the Australian team of 4 men as against teams double that number, next ...
