PRAISE FOR MAN On Land STANDS OUT IN TROUBLES, SATS ELDER'S CHAIRMAN WOOL PRICE UP? [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
PRAISE FOR MAN On Land STANDS OUT IN TROUBLES, SATS ELDER'S CHAIRMAN WOOL PRICE UP? "In all our troubles, nothing stands out better than the efforts of the man on the land to reduce costs of production and practise economy in his personal experience. Where arc there corresponding efforts elsewhere?" asked the chairman of directors (Mr. T. E. Barr Smith), at the half-yearly meeting of Elder, Smith & Co, Lt&lt;L, yesterday. "How lons it will be before our primarly industries become profitable again, it is impossible to say," added Mr. Barr Smith, "but to reach that stage is the point on which our utmost efforts must be concentrated." "Unfortunately, prices for wool and meat are still unfavorable, giving such small net returns to pastoralists that the whole- industry is in trouble. "Prospects for wool at the moment are better, but a long leeway has to be made up. "I feel sun that ultimately we wfll see higher wu>l prices, because even in the present xiorld depression...
HIGHER DUTY ON RUBBER SOUGHT Tariff on Imported Tennis Balls Would Aid Employment Melbourne, February 23. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
HIGHER DUTY ON RUBBER SOUGHT Tariff on Imported Tennis Balls Would Aid Employment Melbourne, February 23. Evidence was heard by the Tariff Board to-day for increased duties on many classes of rubber manufactured in Australia. Mr. A. E. Grant, sales manager for the Barnett Glass Rubber Co., Ltd., supported an application for increases in the duties on tennis balls. Mr. Gran; said that imported materials re presented 42.22 per cent, of the total cost of production in bis company's factory. He considered that an in crease of duty would lead to an in crease in the Australian output by about 33 per cent. The cost of pro duction, would be reduced and more employment would be given. The in creases asked for were for 30 per cent. British preference, 35 per cent, inter mediate, and 45 per cent, general, plus a temporary surcharge of 50 per cent, to 60 to 70 and 75 per cent., or 1/, 1/3, and 1/6 a lb., whichever returned the larger sum.

FIFTY TEARS AGO FROM "THE ADVERTISER" FEBRUARY 24, 1881. The City of Adelaide now con tains close on 40,000 souls, of whom 8,000 live in North Ade- laide. By far the Greater por- laide. By far the greater por tion of working class families live in the southern part. The directors of the South Australian Mining Association have effected a sale of all real and personal estate in this province, including the Burra mines, to purchasers in Eng land for £100.000. At a meeting of the Mount Gambler Sunday - Closing League several speakers declared that the majority of the publi cans in the town were in favor of closing their hotels all day on Sundays, but were keeping open in self-defence.

IN OTHER CITIES SYDNEY GOSSIP (From Our Special Correspondent) Sydney, February 23. to The Premier (Mr. Lang) continues ride triumphant at the head of his hero worshippers, but the very in tensity of his campaign is slowly but surely building up a eolid, determined army of opposition, that may crush, his political fortunes and humble his pride and power in the dust. The leader of the Opposition (Mr. Bavin) is convinced that Parliament has degenerated into a ruthless party machine, and is embarking upon a crusade to rally the country behind him, and by sheer weight of public opinion to force an early election. The problem that is now facing those who place the honor and safety of Australia first, is not how long can the country stand Mr. Lang, but how soon can he be displaced. Mr. Bavin proposes to carry the fiery cross through the length and breadth of the State, and wherever he travels he will find the people eager to rally to his standard. Solidly Against Labor The country itself ...
