Railway working expenses for 1930 -31 compared with that for 1929-30 showed a reduction of 23.5 per cent., excluding interest and sinking fund allotments. Since July. 7-929, railway of...

"Then according: to the laws of grammar.*1 interposed a rather qui2t looking mortal, "he must know some thing." A friend of mine, trying to D&'se himself on a rocfcinar lump of limestone, fell off with laueiiter. The crowd went delirious when Farmer mssed the Australian record for goal kicking.

One of the features of the programme was the excellence of the vocal num bers by Angela Paiselles, who possesses - a good soprano voice.

The Advertiser ADELAIDE: MONDAY, OCTOBER 5. 1931. RAILWAY PENSIONS [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
The Advertiser ADELAIDE: MONDAY, OCTOBER 5. 1931. RAILWAY PENSIONS Some important principles were in- &lt;*> volved in the case placed before the Minister of Railways on Friday, by a deputation which asked for a modifica- Uon of the medical standard to which employes of the Railways Department have long been required to conform. It is hardly necessary to point out that t>w> essential need is tfoe preser vation of public safety; and that, with the object of preventing accidents arising from any physical defect in the "human element" upon which the safe conduct of a railway system so largely depends, an arbitrary standard is unavoidable. A sort of medical yard-stick is the only practicable means of avoiding the appearance of unfair discrimination among the employes and would-be employes of the department. Given the need for a standard in the Interests of the travelling public and railwaymen alike, it only remains to be decided what that standard shall be. Reason deman...

SUMMER STINGS AND BITES Many More This Year The warm days of Spring are here, atoning by their very brilliance for the wet and cloudy weather of the last three months, but there is "a fly in the ointment." Those same warm days are hastening the birth of millions of mosquitoes and small insects. In the stagnant pools In the pad docks, creeks and drains, the mosqui toes are planning their annual assault. They have already sent out their van guard. And we are going to see an abundance of them this year because the abnormally wet winter has left them so many breeding places.
