LABOR TRIES TO RECRUIT CLERGY Article In "Advocate" Distributed [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
LABOR TRIES TO RECRUIT CLERGY Article In "Advocate" Distributed The Labor Party has followed up its reply to Bishop Thomas my making an effort to influence clergymen in pre- &lt;*> paring their addresses for Industrial Sunday. "The secretary of the party (Mr. F. F. Ward) stated on Saturday that the executive had decided to send to all ministers of churches in which Indus trial Sunday would be observed a copy of an article on "Working Classes and Industrial Sunday," appearing in the "Labor Advocate" of October 3, with a request that it be used as a basis for the sermons to be preached on that day. The article gives the reasons for the refusal of the Labor Party to accept the invitation of the Bishop, and states "that the pulpit, like the press, has been used and abased in the interests of the privileged class, and against the masses;" . and, "notwithstanding the persistent and consistent anti-Labor attitude of many of the churches, thou-. sands of workers still continue as...
ASSAULTED BY PACK OF HOODLUMS Constable Stoned And Kicked Sydney, October 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
ASSAULTED BY PACK OF HOODLUMS Constable Stoned And Kicked Sydney, October 4. Constable Vincent Harner, of Pad,- &lt;*> dington, was the victim of a cowardly assault by hoodlums at a hall in Clo- &lt;*> velly late on Saturday night. He was punched and kicked and pelted with stones. Apparently there was no rea son for the attack. The constable went to St. Luke's hall. Clovelly. where his wife had gone to a dance with friends. He intended to drive her home. Before his arrival at the hall about 20 hoodlums who had i gained admission to the dance, had! been fighting among themselves and annoying the dancers. On Constable Harner's entry they began to create a disturbance again. "Here's a mug copper," one of them said. This was followed immediately by an attack on the constable. He was surrounded and driven into a comer of the hall. Insults were hurled at him and his wife. The gang began violently to attack him. He was pushed out of the hall and knocked to the roadway...
DRIED FRUIT PRODUCTION EXPERIENCE AT RENMARK To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
DRIED FRUIT PRODUCTION EXPERIENCE AT RENMARK To the Editor I am. Sir, &co., S. RAMSAY-COX, Renmark. Sir—Some years ago there was a cry that we should produce more fruit. New lands were opened up, 2nd new mortgages were opened as. well Be- cause, just now, dried fruit seems to have got a little lift, the cry is again, "Produce more by opening up more land, and get to work and grow it!" I've been at the game for several years, and would tjitp ts\^ public to know the facts. On the basis of an average of one ton of dried .fruit to the acre, the expenses incurred and the price realised on the 1930 crop were:—Dr.—Packing. £5: water rates, £2 5/; manure, £1; pruning, £1 5/; cultivating, £1; har vesting, £5: total, £15 10/. Cr.—l ton currants, £26 3/8; balance, £10 13/8. In these figures I have, if anything, given the grower the best outlook in regard to expenses. So, taking an average 10-acre block, he gets less than £120 per annum, for which he has to work rather more than eight h...
VIEWS AND COMMENTS FARMERS' DEBTS ADJUSTMENT POSITION OF LENDERS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
VIEWS AND COMMENTS FARMERS' DEBTS ADJUST MENT POSITION OF LENDERS To the Editor I am, Sir, &co., R. BEDFORD, Kyancutta. Sir—In reply to criticisms of my committee's proposed scheme, I must contradict the idea that a fictitious price of 4/6 per bushel was decided on. No price was fixed at an. wnen tne i price of wheat is at the prices quoted, | the basis of repayment would be as stated. If the pmoe of wheat is 2/3 per bushel, It would work out at a loss to the grower; therefore he would not be able to make any payments for his antecedent debts. The same point applies today with the Farmers' Relief Act. At present parity the merchants who provided new money to sow last season's crop will, in numerous cases, take the largest portion of the finan cial return from the total crop. This will leave a very email margin, for any antecedent debts, after sufficient has been eet aside for the coming crop. One critic describes the scheme as fan tastical. I would remind him, as well as the...
NO EDUCATION CUT UNTIL WASTE SHOWN Premier's Declaration [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
NO EDUCATION CUT UNTIL WASTE SHOWN Premier's Declaration "There will be no arbitrary cut in the education vote until those who desire the cut have shown where any waste is occurring," declared the Pre- &lt;*> mier (Mr. Hill) at the Back to Pavne nam school celebrations on Satur day. "I am satisfied from my long experi ence as head of the Education Depart ment that no money is b^ine wasted tVst our pvstem is as e?Wnt as that cf imv Austi-alian Sta'e. and that our education costs are lower than those of any State, excepting Tasmania," he said.
"STEERING BETWEEN SCYLLA AND CHARYBDIS" [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
"STEERING BETWEEN SCYLLA AND CHARYBDIS" I am. Sir, &co. H. C. HOGBEN, Hon. Secretary, Political Reform League. Sir—Australia is now following Pro- &lt;*> fessor T. E. Gregory's theory of a de- &lt;*> flation, accomplished by some release of credits, partly to try to stabilise prices and.partly to cushion the fall. The nation is reducing costs by the necessary Premiers' Plan, and at the same time issuing credits to ease the fall. The process is being carried on by the banks purchasing Common wealth Treasury bills. The note issue has also been expanded from £46,000,000! to £52,000.000; but the noles in circula tion do not seem to be increasing, probably because some are going into ••hoards." Up to the present time, pricos have not risen as a result of the Australian policy, partly because it is not- a true inflation of the currency, partlv because the country is living to a large extent on bankrupt stock, and partly because, until recently, world prices c...
INFLATION AND OPTIMISM "RIVAL SCHEMES OF BORROWING" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
INFLATION AND OPTIMISM "RIVAL SCHEMES OF BORROW ING" To the Editor I am, Sir, &co. E. L. ST. JOHN-COLEMAN. Sir—Having read Mr. A. T. Wre- &lt;*> ford's letter. I would put the following case before him for his opinion. The Government is in want, say. of £40.aw,000. II it borrows that sum at 4 per cent.. £1,583,333 per year would be payable as interest for an Indefinite period, as there is no prospect of pay in* any of the principal off. Alter natively, the Government inflates ths currency with half paper and half sil ver, chareing the taxpayers 3 per cent., about £1549,000 per year on the £40.000.000 loan, and lends the money | at 3 per cent, to f annere. producers, and manufacturers. Under this plan of inflation the taxpayer and borrower win return to the Government annually £2,499,998 for 17 years, at the *™>\ of which time the £40,000,000 will be paid off and still be in circulation, retura ine to the Government £1,249.000 annu ally. Under the old borrowing ...
GOLD STANDARD AND TRADE LABOR'S POLICY APPROVED To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
GOLD STANDARD AND TRADE LABOR'S POLICY APPROVED To the Editor I am, Sir, &co. J. J. A. WEATHERS. Sir—Regarding Mr. H. C. Hogben's challenge, we may recall the dreadful consequences predicted by the economic experts, if Australia adopted Labor's proposals, involving the abolition of the gold standard (for all practicable pur poses within Australia), the issue of £20,000,000 national credit, and the sta bilisation of prices at 1929 levels. These proposals, together with the setting up of a central reserve bank, were the fundamentals of economic recovery, as proposed by Labor, and were turned down bjr the Senate, at the behest of organised financial institutions. As an alternative, Australia was forced to accept tiie Associated Banks' policy Che Premiers' Plan) of intensified de flation, which is now recognised as illogical, and has culminated in national economic breakdown. Britain rose to the occasion to arrest the results of a mad and mistaken policy, and scrap ped the gold ...
"TARIFF MISAPPREHENSIONS" CHALLENGE TO FREE TRADERS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
"TARIFF MISAPPREHENSIONS" CHALLENGE TO FREE TRADERS To the Editor I am. Sir. &co., T. S. NETTLEFOLD. President Australian Industries Pro tection League, Melbourne. Sir—The public is becoming con- &lt;*> fused over protection and the tariff. This arises from the fact that free traders seek to destroy the policy by attacking the instrument. The policy, iin brief, is the establishment and preservation of Australian industries, primary and secondary, and the in strument for tile accomplishment of these aims is the tariff. But the tariff is designed to achieve more Bian imp purpose. Under normal conditions its objectives are:—(a) The raising of moneys for the conduct of Govern ment services by means of revenue duties on articles not made or pro duced in the Commonwealth; and &lt;b) The protection of local industries by the imposition of duties designed to preserve Australian markets to Aus tralian manufacturers and producers. But times are not normal. As a con ...
TRUE DEMOCRACY EDUCATION IN SOCIAL SCIENCE To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
TRUE DEMOCRACY EDUCATION IN SOCIAL SCIENCE To the Editor I am. Sir. &co. THOS. DUFFIELD, Burnside. Sir-Is the present implementing of machinery for conducting community affairs equal to the altered conditions? If not. it is the essence of the free- dam we enjoy as Britishers to make readjustments. As showing value for that privilege. Mr. L. S. Araery. when touring the Empire as Secretary for the Dominions in 1927, stated, in an address at Durban—"The most re- &lt; markable thing about the British Em pire, is its capacity for adjustment to meet the needs of changing times."; We may well utilise that ability to combat the distressful times we are now enduring. _ Admittedly a prime duty of free citizens is to know how to use. wisely and well, powers vested in them, rights of vital impon. to communitv, as well as personal well-being. To select, with discretion, men as law makers for Siate progression needs training, not hitherto provided for. A "pass" in socia! science s...
