"Members of the Murray Bridge crew are acting under a misapprehension con· cerning my remarks regarding their victory in the Australian eight-oal championship in Perth last month.

R. ? acfarlane, the well-known rowing authority and selector of the Victorian team, made this remark this morning. "The South Australian oarsmen have formed the wrong impression that I am trying to discredit their claims for in clusion in the Australian Ohlpic team for Paris next year.

CUSTOMS ACT AMENDMENTS Some Objectionable Features [Newspaper Article] — News — 28 July 1923
CUSTOMS ACT AMENDMENTS Some Objectionable Features Strong opposition is being taken by the Adelaide Chamber of Commerce to a number of sections in the Customs Act Amending Bill now before the Federal Parliament. At a meeting of the council of the chamber held yes terday afternoon it was decided to com municate with the president of the Associated Chambers of Commerce of Australia and press for the removal of several objectionable features in the measure. Alteration to Section 15, dealing with warehouse fees, is considered unneces sary. The principal Act set out the fees to be paid, whereas the suggested amendment provides that fees shall be prescribed without giving any indica tion of what those fees might be. According to the council there appears to be no valid reason why Section 228 of the Act should be amended. The addition of the words "or know ingly assist in the unlawful Importa tion, exrortation, or conveyance of any prohibited imports or prohibited ex ports" throws a grave ...

MUIST Mh~BAVE CHAR Woman Lost Without It PRIZES BEQUEATHED The late Peter Mitchell's bequest of special prizes for ideal women continues to exercise paragraphists and special writers in the London press. The latest commentator is . noted young novelist named Michael Arlen, whose recent book 'Piracy" shows him to be an adequate portrayer of charmn* ing women. He asserts that Mitchell does not want a ideal woman, but an institution with a nurse's face. "He rays nothing of charm," states the artist. 'A woman without charm is like a woman without hair on her head. Charm is more important than swim ming. "Atl men hide a dream in their hearts which a woman walks with a smiling face and whispering feet. They will never meet this wom~an. It is just as well if there is to be any happiness in the home. The ideal woman is, in fact, a gentleman." The late Mr. Peter Mitchell set apart! £178,478, out of which he directed his trustees to provide 'prizes for 15 Aus tralian girls or women under 30 y...
