The Advertiser and Register ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1931. CANBERRA'S SPENT FORCE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
The Advertiser and Register ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1931. CANBERRA'S SPENT FORCE Our Federal politicians in particular nave been engaged for more than six months in conferring with one another, and with, everybody else. This plethora of political discussion began in August with the now famous Melbourne Con ference, which is in. striking contrast to every conference that has succeeded it, for the reason that it did produce a concrete &nd commonsense agreement for the cure of the nation's financial distresses. If that agreement had been honored by the Commonwealth and New South Wales as loyally as it has been acted upon by the five sane States, most of the conferences that have followed would have been need less. Six precious months would have been saved, to the inestimable advan tage of the whole country; and an un rivalled spectacle of political degrada tion would not have sickened this long suffering generation. The hopes founded upon the Melbourne Confer ence were ...
TESTAMENTARY LIBERTY [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
TESTAMENTARY LIBERTY In the matter of testamentary law, the British people, in the words of that high authority, the late Sir Henry Maine, have enjoyed "the greatest lati- tude ever given in the history of the world to the volition or caprice of the individual" But this apparently is now to end. the House of Commons having just given a second reading to a Bill introduced by Miss Eleanor Rathbone to prevent a testator leaving his or her widow or widower or chil dren unprovided for, the whole of his or her property being devised to outsiders, or charitable or other or ganisations. This is one of the things which, as Sterne said of France, we have managed better in South Aus tralia, though it must be admitted that only a dozen years have elapsed since the enactment, after years of agita tion, of a law to assure to the testator's family "adequate provision" out of his or her estate, and we had long been forestalled by New Zealand, and for a less period by some of the other States of the...
LAUGHTER AND SUCCESS HOW CHARLES CHAPLIN ROSE TO FAME World's Jester [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
LAUGHTER AND SUCCESS HOW CHARLES CHAPLIN ROSE TO FAME World's Jester If a little boy had been drowned when he fell into the Thames at Westminster Bridge more than 30 years ago, there would have been no Charles Spencer Chaplin to create a stir in London last week, on his return to his birthplace. The world would also have missed laughs by the thousand. "Charlie" Chaplin always bantered for the limgME*)*., although his ?wetting in the Thames bad nothing to do with it. Both his parents were on the stage and that fact probably made him think it would be a good idea to Join, un officially, the Scots Guards when they inarched through St. James Park under the eye of a film camera man mairfng a gazette. It was "Charlie's" screen debut, and since then his baggy trou sers, turned-out toes, and little bowler bat have made him famous. Now he is a producer, director, author, and star in motion pictures of his own creation. lack and a Telegram There are two kinds of luck—good and bad—and it must ...

Mr. El liott rescued the youngest child, a baby of seven months, and the other child ren barely had time to escape from the house in their night attire- The build ing was destroyed, and nothing in it was saved. The Elliotts now have only the clothes they were wearing.

BIRD LIFE IN THE ANTARCTIC NEWS FROM THE DISCOVERY Canberra, February 23. The extraordinary bird life of the' Antarctic is described in a wireless message received from Sir Douglas Mawson, dated February 13. "We now appear to be in a bad area for wireless transmission," says tbe report, "and are experiencing con siderable delays in getting messages away.

FEDERAL UNEMPLOYMENT GRANT Accepted By Unley Council [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
FEDERAL UNEMPLOYMENT GRANT Accepted By Unley Council Unley Council decided last night to accept the £2.767 allotted under the Federal Government's unemployment relief scheme. The decision of a pre- vious meeting to refuse the terms of the grant was negatived following a notification from the Unemployment Relief Council that the unemployed of the district, whether or not they were registered at the Labor Bureau, might be given work under the scheme. Alderman F. J. Barrett said that the opportunity to employ 1,300 men was too good to be missed. As the men employed would also receive rations they would be able -to buy very neces sary clothes with tbe wages they re ceived. A motion was carried that the of ficers of the council should prepare a list of.works covering the amount of the grant and of the rate levied for the purpose, as far as possible on the pro rata arawonmt to each ward. The majority of men employed will pro bably be engaged by the council through the Unley City Unemploye...
TAX INSTEAD OF BUTTON DAYS Unley Councillor Wants Restriction [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
TAX INSTEAD OF BUTTON DAYS Unley Councillor Wants Restriction That the Government should impose an additional tax of, perhaps, one penny in the pound to assist charitable societies which rely on street appeals to raise funds, was a suggestion . made by councillor S. J. Kneebone at a meeting of the Unley Council lats night. Councillor Kneebone said, while he was entirely in sympathy with such organisations, he felt that the time had come to follow the lead of the Adelaide Council and restrict the number of street appeals. Letters were received from the com mittes of the Tubercular Soldiers' Aid Society and Minda Home asking for permission to hold button days hi the district. It was decided to allow the former to organise a button day as in previous years, and to refer the matter of street appeals generally to the by laws committee. ?

STRAIGHTENING OUT THE CALENDAR 28 Days to die Month "INTENSELY PRACTICAL IDEA" [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
STRAIGHTENING OUT THE CALENDAR 28 Days to die Month "INTENSELY PRACTICAL IDEA" Business men expressed interest yesterday in the proposal of the International Fixed Calendar League, for the introduction of a calendar dividing the year into 13 months, each of 28 days. T.ifc-A many another problem which appears purely academic at first glance, the reform of the calendar has an intensely practical side. Reference was made to the subject in "The Ad vertiser" on Saturday, in the magazine section, and again in the editoral columns on Monday and when en quiries were made in business circles yesterday, the general opinion was most favorable to the projected change. Those concerned in the direction of large businesses were the most em phatic that the thirteen months' year would be a blessing, not only for con venience, but also because of the ma terial saving in time and money which would result. Accurate Comparisons Where large staffs of men are em ployed, it is necessary to keep elaborate c...

Women More to Blame Than Men MOTHERS TRY TO RIVAL THEIR OWN DAUGHTERS Conducted by VICTORIA REYNOLDS MORE nonsense is talked about the bold had of to-day than one would think possible in a community where women claim equality of rights everywhere but in the tram. Whenever you hear a woman telling another woman with bated breath that i the villain still pursued her, you may rest assured that at least she lingered by the wayside. . The average man . does not pursue a woman at all. If he did there would never be'the need for hair the scheming and matchmak ing In the world. Woman likes to hug to herself the delusion that she is still the hunted doe. As a rule she has to do Gome very clever manoeuvring and stalking to lure a man into the same room with her alone, and if he thinks her Intentions are serious, he is off to the hills like a buck that scents death and disaster upwind. The trouble is that woman's ...
