S.A. LOSE FOUR FOR 32 IN SECOND INNINGS Remarkable Collapse Gives Victoria Grip on Shield Game WOODFULL TAKES 7½ HOURS FOR 177 [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

S.A. LOSE FOUR FOR 32 IN SECOND INNINGS Remarkable Collapse Gives Victoria Grip on Shield Game WOODFULL TAKES 7½ HOURS FOR 177 A second innings collapse late yesterday afternoon robbed I South Australia of die grip it had on the Sheffield Shield '! match with Victoria, at the close of Victoria's innings. 1 Four wickets fell quickly for 32 runs after Victoria had been Woodfull batted throughout the Vic torian innings, with the exception of the last eight minutes, and has been on the field for the whole of the match except for that period. His monumen tal patience is the more remarkable when it is known that he was suffer ing severely from gastric trouble dur ing most of that time. Oakley's batting was like a tonic to the jaded spectators. Treating all bowlers alike, and hitting nine fours in his first 50, which was scored in ten minutes over the hour, he caused the score to mount rapidly. While he was at the wickets, Victoria's chances of overhauling South Australia's total were brig...

DARWIN PEARLERS AGAINST LIMITING OUTPUT Territory Member Says Ring Has Cornered Market Canberra, February 23. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

DARWIN PEARLERS AGAINST LIMITING OUTPUT Territory Member Says Ring Has Cornered Market Canberra, February 23. To protest against the Government's request that Darwin pearlers should re- strict their output this year to 200 tons, a deputation headed by Mr. Victor Clark, a director of the Darling Pearl ing Association,- is due at Canberra to morrow. Over-production in the pearl fisheries threatens the industry, and as Darwin produced 800 tons last year, it has been suggested that it should reduce iie activities 16 give the industry at Broome and other parte of the coast a chance on the limited market. Mr. Harold Nelson, WR.n for the Northern Territory, holds the opinion that the Government has been misled by suggestions that the market is limited. The move to restrict output is a stunt by the American pearling ring, which has cornered the Broome and Thursday Island output, and wants to rig its own price," said Mr. Nelson to day- _^_^_?_____

"DENIED RIGHT TO WORK" STATE LABOR EXCHANGE AND VOLUNTEERS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

"DENIED RIGHT TO WORK" STATE LABOR EXCHANGE AND VOLUNTEERS To the Editor Sir—May I ask in what way would each of our political parties deal with the following case?—I am a tradesman with a wife and family, and until 1928 I was employed in the building indus- try in this State. I was unemployed at the time of the waterside workers' strike in 1928, and seeing the newspaper advertisement offering employment to men on the waterfront at the current rates of pay, I accepted that work, and by this means earned a living until last week. Now I am forced out of work by the regulations made by the Fede- ral Government, and on registering at the S.A. Government Labor Exchange find that no job will be allotted to me, even if offering, as I am no longer a member of the union covering my par- ticular trade. That union executive has denounced me to its members as a "scab," because I accepted honest em- ployment in preference to charity. Now I am asked to pay taxes to a Govern- ment which debars me ...

YOUNG MEN IN FACTORIES HARMFUL LAWS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

YOUNG MEN IN FACTORIES HARMFUL LAWS To the Editor Sir-I know I am not brilliant, but I think I am equal to the average young man, and I have been very nappy in my position at the works, but I dread my coming of age. Although busi ness is bad, I know my employers would like to keep me. I feel lam worth the wages I am getting, but I know, m these bad. times, I cannot earn the money the factory will have to pay me if they keep me after lam 21. The trade unions, through the Arbitration Court, have ruined my chance in life. But for them I could keep my job. and when opportunity came I could better my position. I am sure I could do this, as my father said he used to do, when some vacancy occurred, or when trade improved, and I have got to leave the work I like, and all the chaps, as soon as I am 21, because the foolish law insists that the company must pay me more than I can earn. It is a crime that I shall have to join the unemployed just because trade unions have asked for laws which ru...

FARMERS' DISABILITIES PROPOSED GRANT-IN-AID To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931

FARMERS' DISABILITIES PROPOSED GRANT-IN-AID To the Editor —I am, Sir, &c, E. J^ BERTRAM. FARMING IN UNSUITABLE COUNTRY -I am, Sir, &c H. P. SHAKES. Sir- The Proposed grant of £6,000,000 to the farmers, to be distributed on a baas of 6d. a bushel of wheat exported, is neither equitable nor capable of Deing satisfactorily adininistered. The farmer sells or stores with the mer chant, and the wheat is put into bulk stacks at the various sidings, and the merchant has not the slightest idea of the individual ownership of the wheat exported. Therefore the distribution to the farmer would be only a matter of guesswork. It is not equitable, be cause it gives to him that hath and takes away from them that hath not. The farmer in need of the bonus is the man that has no crop, or very little—not the man that has thousands of bushels. "Where are we to get £6,000,000 for such an unjust distribu tion? it is nonsensical expenditure of this 6ort that has brought on the pre sent finan...

Ten-Storey Building on North-terrace WORK TO BEGIN TO-MORROW To-morrow morning workmen will begin clearing and excavating in preparation for the construction of a ten-story office building- on North-terrace for the Shell Com pany of Australia. The cost, in cluding land and furnishings, will be approximately £180,000. The manager of the company (Mr. H. M.

The result would be that 95 per cent, (including 750 tons of steel) would be provided by this State, and the remainder would come from other parts of Australia. Up to 150 men would be employed when the -work was at its peak. The architects are Messrs. E. H. Mc- Michael and Harris, and the contractor Mr. E. A. Anderson. The site adjoins the Adelaide Club, and Shell Building will cover an area of 65 ft. by 133 ft., a strip of land 10 ft. wide having been sacrificed to widen Club-lane. The building, which w...
