MOTORING NOTES. NIGHT DRIVING—THE GLARE PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 18 April 1925
MOTORING NOTES. NIGHT DRIVING—THE GLARE PROBLEM. It must have long siuce become ap parent to both city and country mo torists that something must he done to cope with the problem of glaring headlights and the danger which tliey constitute to all other traffic. Before dealing with the technical aspects of this question we must get one impor tant and vital fact imprinted on our minds, i.e., that the practices of in discriminate dimming or running with lights which are not bright enough to illuminate the road for a reason able distance ahead are just as risky as the glaring headlight evil. It will be apparent, therefore, that we must tackle the problem from the half-way point and strive to get the highest degree of illumination consistent with the elimination of the dangerous glare. Inventors have spent much time and money in their attempts to perfect a d°v'ce which will /overcome thee difficult'es. Some of the inven tions have been successful to a point but cost of production or lack ...

%\t fealp idrcr. SATURDAY. APKIL IS, 1925. • OPENING OF THE RIVERINA. One of the .most important and epoch-marking movements in the tie ■ velopment of the State is the arrange ,'irient by which the neighbouring • State of. Victoria is building 200 miles of developmental railways' across the border into -New South Wales and is constructing several bridges across ; the Murray..-;-Time was when a nar ; row viewed policy would have consid •' ered it suicidal to give a neighbour-. ~ ing State access to our territory, and • to-afford it the opportunity of liand ■ ling some of our trade would have been accounted as treachery to our own people. Actually, of course, we were all the time holding back the development of these outlying por tions of our State and preventing the profitable employment of our'own and neighbouring Australians on our lands. The broad view taken by Sir George Puller and bis colleagues is that Aus tralian people are quite as much en titled to their chance in life on on...
GET ON THE ROLL. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 18 April 1925
GET ON THE ROLL. No elector should allow his or her name to be le£t off the roll. It is the obvious duty of every elector, male or female, to enrol himself or herself. The present Electoral Act imposes the duty of self-enrolment upon every elector and likewise imposes a liabil ity to fine on each elector neglecting the duty of self-enrolment. There will be 110 new rolls compiled for 1925, beyond the supplementary roll, which will close as soon as the writs are issued for the election. When the writs are out it will be too late to enrol. That duty should be at tended to at once. Do it now, and do not indulge in vain afterwards. The first duty of an elector is to see whether or not his or her name is on the roll already in existance, which may be inspected at police sta tions, post offices, and court rooms. If your name is not 011 the roll you should immediately apply at the nearest police station for a form of enrolment, fill it in and present ■ it without delay.

LABOUR AND SHORTER HOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 18 April 1925
LABOUR AND SHORTER HOURS. Labour supporters never tire of claiming that the Dooley Government reduced the hours of labour and that the National Government has increas ed them to the old level. Also the Labour organisers and platform speakers assert that wages have been reduced under the National regime. ' Neither statement is correct. . The Nationalists have, neither increased the hours of labour nor reduced wages. , It has been the policy of the Na tional 'Party ever since its 'inception to leave industrial matters, either re lating to wages or hours of labour, to the industrial tribunals. No other course is safe, either Tor the worker or for the public. No tribunal in the world is l less fitted ' to determine wages, or to regulate hours of labour than Parliament. That deliberative 'hotly may fitly adopt the principle and lay down the general conditions under which the Industrial; Tribunals may carry'out'their work, but the necessary information required ac tually to determine wuge...
Death Penalty Stands, DEBATE IN HOUSE OF COMMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 18 April 1925
Death Penalty Stands, DEBATE IN HOUSE OF COMMONS. In the Britisil House of Commons oa Wednesday in the committee stage of the Army Annual • Bill, Mr. Tliur tle (Labor) moved an Amendment objecting to the death penalty. . He argued that there was no diff-. erence between what army called cowardice and what medical men called a nervous breakdown. It was an insult to the whole Brit ish Army to hold the threat of the death penalty over them. Not. a single Australian had been executed in wartime, because the Australian Government said that their soldiers should not be executed. The fact that the death penalty was wot oper ated against Australians did not mean that they fought less determinedly or courageously than other troops. He demanded, in the name of the Labor i Party, that the British Government | apply the Australian conditions to ■ . its own troops. i Air. H. Snell (Labor) said that the 1 Australian example was valuable as showing that a modern nation, know ing its own sons, trus...
