WHAT TO DO WITH BOYS LEAVING SCHOOL QUESTION DISCUSSED AT TEACHERS' CONFERENCE OTHER BIG PROBLEMS DEALT WITH Many problems of interest were discussed yesterday at the conference of the Federated State School Teachers' Associa- tion. Among the questions was that of helping boys and girls leaving school, who, in the present state of commerce and finance, are faced with unemployment.   Mr. J. P. Glasheen (New South Wales), in opening the discussion, said the action of the secretary (Mr. A. G. Alanson), in bringing the matter under the notice of various Ministers was to be commended. "This is a very serious problem, and one that concerns teachers," he said. "Our work is not limited to the four walls of the schooL We should be as much concerned with the future of our scholars as with their education." Measures should be taken to look alter the boys leaving school, he added. If they were allowed just to run round the streets and were not given some kind of employment their mi...

BOYS AND AVIATION Encouragement of Air Sense Suggested [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931

BOYS AND AVIATION Encouragement of Air Sense Suggested Stating that many schoolboys were showing an interest in aviation, and saying that they wished to become airmen, Mr. R. A. West directed at- tention to the desirability of notice being given to the subject by Educa- tion Departments. Mr. West said the development of aviation had been so rapid that they hardly realised the high state of mechanical perfection that had been attained. Among the outstanding features of aviation that made it in- creasingly important in the develop- ment of Australia, might be mentioned rapid communication to otherwise in- accessible places, medical assistance for outback settlers, a favorable climate, and defence considerations. Miss E. Opie (South Australia) said the development of the air sense should be encouraged under wise super- vision. She pointed to the number of distinguished South Australian avia- tors. A motion—"That this conference stresses the importance of the develop- ment of aviation i...

STATUS OF TEACHERS Move to Form Institute [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931

STATUS OF TEACHERS Move to Form Institute An appeal to teachers to endeavor to raise the status of teaching was made by Mr. W. Cremor, of Victoria. "We must recognise that the remedy for the present position is in our own hands," he said. "The essence of a profession is the standard of entry and qualifications for practising, and these must be laid down by members them- selves, and not by departmental autho- rities. My proposal is somewhat revo- lutionary, and will meet with the oppo- sition of authorities throughout Aus- tralia." He then moved that steps be taken to establish a Teachers' Institute in Australia. In Australia, added Mr. Cremor, there were about 20,000 teachers, and united they could exert a tremendous political force. Nothing could stop them if they organised into an institute and formed the union into an incorporated body. A course of action could be determined later. Mr. Cremor's motion was then adopted.

FALSE PRETENCES Christmas Day Incident LONDON, January 6. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931

FALSE PRETENCES Christmas Day Incident LONDON, January 6. A man, supposed to have been born in Australia, and giving the name of Gerald Vladimir Crichton, alias Up- johns, and falsely self-described as a nephew of Sir George Crichton, was to-day sentenced at Marlborough-street to six months' hard labor for incurring a debt of eight guineas at the Dover- street Hotel by false pretences on Christmas Day. Another man paid the debt on Janu- ary 2. Crichton is said to have come to England from Cap Ferrat to rebut a charge of plagiarism. A detective tes- tified that Crichton's articles were cribbed. Crichton was imprisoned for a week in Sydney in 1925, and sentenced at   Wellington for false pretences, and at Paris for vagabondage as the result of not paying for a champagne supper he gave to some cabaret girls.

SEAMEN'S TROUBLE OVER. Five Delayed Ships Get Away Sydney, January 7. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 9 January 1931

SEAMEN'S TROUBLE OVER. Five Delayed Ships Get Away Sydney, January 7. A settlement was effected to-day in the dispute between the Seamen's Union and the shipowners concerning the method of picking up crews. All the five inter-State vessels which had been held up on Tuesday sailed during the day with full complements. More than 2,000 unemployed seamen, all anxious to obtain work, attended the shipping master's office, where the call for men was made. Although the union had been advised by the authori- ties that, as the office was Common- wealth property, it had no right to ob- ject to the presence of shore officials from the shipping companies or, for that matter, any one else, shipowners agreed to a slight change in procedure.
