"WITH HOW LITTLE WISDOM" [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
"WITH HOW LITTLE WISDOM" The serious, though far from unpre- &lt;*> cedented, step taken by Britain last week, In temporarily suspending the gold standard, had as its main cause, as Professor D. B. Copland pointed out in "The Advertiser" on Saturday, the disinclination of America and France, though conspicuous among the suf ferers, to accept the remedy, or at least palliative, for the world's economic and industrial maladies prescribed by Lord Macmillnn's Committee on Finance and Industry, which was to put to its proper use the gold now choking- the vaults of Its central banks. So. far from accepting this advice, which was tendered as long ago as July, the two countries have gone on accumulating what the committee calls "this unwanted and unnecessary gold," till now it amounts to no less than 60 per cent of the gold currency in existence. And still the process con tinues, France having last week added to her supply of the precious metal by another £6,000,000. m airing the...
KINGSFORD SMITH [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
KINGSFORD SMITH "Oh. the little more and how much it is, and the little less and what worlds away!" Profound satisfaction and relief were afforded by the dis- covery that Air Commodore Kingston! Smith's mysterious disappearance for many hours after leaving Aleppo, in Syria, meant nothing more serious than his forced descent at Milas and detention by the Turkish authorities. But the mishap, though it had no serious consequences to himself or his machine, proved fatal to the fulfilment . of his object, which was to wrest from i Mr. J. A. Mollison the record for speed in the air journey from Australia to Britain. So far ahead of his rival was he at the time he reached Aleppo, that he might have hoped, not merely to beat his record, but to better it by at least a day, as he expected to do in starting. Trig hope of achieving either result was frustrated, not by his descent, though that step appears to have been necessitated by sunstroke and the effects of the long and arduous battle with...

HORSE AGAIN IN DEMAND Swing Over From Motors EFFECT OF TIMES [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
HORSE AGAIN IN DEMAND Swing Over From Motors EFFECT OF TIMES There are indi-&lt;*> cations of a defi- &lt;*> nite swing back to horses in most States of Austra lia. During the past 12 months nearly 2,000 draught horses have been sent from this State to Western Australia, and at the Clydes dale sale in Mel bourne last -week draught stallions brought from 100 guineas to 400 guineas. ' Hard times is probably the biggest factor in the change-over from motor power to horse power.

AUSTRALIANS' WRITING A "REVELATION" London Comment On Our Authors' Exhibition LONDON, October 3. Commenting on the Australian Authors' Exhibition at Australia House, "The Times" says it will be a revela- &lt;*> tion to most Englishmen to find how much imaginative writing—fiction and poetry—the people of Australia pro duced. The Australian scene itself had been brilliantly honored in print, from the days of the great classics. "Robbery Under Anns" and 'Tor the Term of His Natural Life," to writers like "Henry Handel Richardson" and the late Barbara Baynton, while poets like Kendall. Henry Lawson. and | Adam Lindsay Gordon had been in spired to write brilliantly about the pastoral and bush life. "Seeing how easily poetic talent car. be absorbed in abstract and universal themes, it is g:?d to see boots for once ousting primary products from the cen tral spaces of Australia House," says "The Times." i

FOOTBALL FINAL BRILLIANT Farmer's New Record AFTER THE MATCH Features of a brilliant finale to the football season on Saturday in which North Adelaide won from Sturt by 17.13 to 11.11, were a record crowd for the season of 34,202, and that Farmer, of North, brought his total of goals this year to 126— two better than the Australian re cord of Gordon Coventry, of Col lingwood, Victoria. There was an excited scene in North's dressing-room after the game. Thoughts of all else were abandoned for mutual congratulations, and to shower felici- tations on Farmer. Players and sup porters crowded the tables, the benches, and even sat on top of the lockers. The doorkeeper vainly tried to regu late their entry, but his efforts were not equal to tile pressure of those outside, and be was forced to let them flow in promiscuously.

OUR FRUIT SHIPMENTS CRITICISED Condition Affected By Uncontrolled Handling Perth, October 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
OUR FRUIT SHIPMENTS CRITICISED Condition Affected By Uncontrolled Handling Perth, October 4. According to Mr. W. M. Carne, of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, who has returned from Eng- &lt;*> land and South Africa, the condition of fruit exported from Australia to the English market compares unfavorably with that from other countries, chiefly as the result of handling en route. The outstanding defect in Austra- j lian export was lack of organisation to ensure the best handling, he said. In South Africa nothing was left to chance. The handling of fruit on the train and wharf during loading and stowage was supervised. The shipping companies were compelled, under con tract, to stow fruit as required by the Perishable Products Export Control Board, and they must also supply the | equipment and refrigeration conditions which the board stipulated. In Australia it was nobody's business to supervise the tianHling of the fruit on the train or wharf, or to stipul...

"The revolution has come; it is being fought now, and will con- &lt;*> tinue a little into the future," said the Premier (Mr. Lang), in a speech at the Eight Hours dinner in the Trades Hall on Saturday night. Although there was a large attendance of Federal and State members, toe official Federal Parlia mentary Labor Party was not repre sented. "The revolution has come without our streets being barricaded without the accompaniment of firearms, but in the way the Labor movement has al ways said it would come—by Act of Parliament," said Mr. Lang, amid ap plause. "Seven months ago the Labor move ment in New South Wales said that a contract for the payment of money was as good and as valid a contract as any other, but that it was no better than any other contract. Seven months ago our Labor movement said—The system of currency in operation is crushing the people; it is...
Victorian Bishop Crosses Swords With Superior Melbourne, October 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
Victorian Bishop Crosses Swords With Superior Melbourne, October 3. Disputing the contention made by the Anglican Diocesan Synod in Melbourne that economic free- &lt;*> dom was lacking in Australia. the Anglican Bishop of Wan garatta (the Bight Rev. J. Hart), de clared in an address at Seymour, that Archbishop Head was wrong, and had not sufficiently thought out his subject. : Bishop Hart said that he was sur prised to know that Archbishop Head had asserted that economic freedom was terribly lacking in Australia today and that, although there might be good reasons for trade union regulations, arbitration courts, the basic wage and a high protective tariff, they were hindering economic freedom, and in asserting that Australia was suffering from over-regulation. j The existence of a power to regulate j industry was in general a benefit to the community and a source of popular i liberty. The difficulty was not that I regulation was a hindrance to econo-1 mic freedom, but tha...

For Whaling Research Sir Douglas Mawson said last night that the trip would be the second made by the Discovery II. this year. She was a modern oil-burning vessel, fitted for long cruises, and bad been built in 1929 for the whale research work being conducted by the Falkland Islands Government. The cruise would be controlled by the Colonial Office com mittee in London, on which there were representatives of the British Museum, the Falkland Islands, the Admiralty, and tiis Fisheries Board.

The vessel is not fitted to go into the pack ice, but. of course, will visit any place easily reached. There is a danger of the whale becoming extinct if fish ing is allowed to continue on the same scale as at present, and the scientists on board will study particularly its breeding habits, migrations, and pecu liarities."
