NOT DIVIDED. Late Mr. and Mrs. Bott. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933

NOT DIVIDED. Late Mr. and Mrs. Bott. "In death they were not divided" might appropriately be applied to Mr. Jasper Bott and his wife, who died within a few hours of each other at their home in Ashgrove, a home which was a home in the best sense of the word with an old-fashioned garden of exquisite sweetness in which both husband and wife found the greatest joy and delight in the sunset glow of life. Both were buried yesterday in the little family plot in the Toowong Cemetery, where the father and mother of Mrs. Bott found their last resting place many years ago. Although in his earlier years the late Mr. Bott led an adventurous life, he and his wife settled down to a serene existence at Ashgrove nearly 50 years ago, and devoted themselves to their family and their garden, which is the pride of the neighbourhood, with its exquisite roses and carnations filling the air with fragrance. The late Mr. Bott was 90 years of age, and his wife 75 years at the time of their deaths. A native of...

NEW 18-FOOTER. Revolutionary Type. » EDDIE WARE, HELMSMAN Through the enterprise of Mr. Harold Spcaritt (owner) uni Mr. Ernest Ware (designer-builder) the 18-footers class In Queensland sai'ing may be revolu- tionised this season by the Introduc- tion of an entirely new type, which, for the first time, is to discard Ice cloths and decking. The new craft, which is to be sailed by Eddie Ware, Is to be named Irelene. She is to be launched in a fortnight's time. The unquenchable spirit and daring of Queensland's boat designer-builders and helmsmen stamp sailing with a character all its own. Last season enthusiasts witnessed the suc- cessful exploits of an improved 18-footer in Aberdare, and although Mr. Fred. Hart (owner) and Vic. Vaughan (skipper), did not have the satisfaction of win- ning an Australian championship they proved that Aber- dare embodied many distinctive features which placed her on a plane above the older type under favourable conditions.

MONETARY PROBLEMS AT THE CONFERENCE. The Clash of Policies. LONDON, July 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933

MONETARY PROBLEMS AT THE CONFERENCE. The Clash of Policies. By PROFESSOR DOUGLAS COPLA ND. LONDON, July 19. It would be idle to attempt to dis- count the failure of the World Economic Conference to give "ft lead on monetary policy. From the outset the effort to stabilise currencies in an unstable world was bound to fail. Apart altogether from the attitude of the united States, the conditions for cur- rency stabilisation were nowhere ful- filled. Least of all were they firmly established in the gold bloe, which, under the astute leadership of France, forced this issue on the Conference. The five countries mainly concerned France, Belgium, Italy, Holland, and Switzerland-are now suffering from the effects of the appreciation of their currencies more than most other countries at the moment. This appre- ciation of currencies, both in terms of goods within the countries and in terms of other (paper) currencies, is the root cause of their -^distress. It has led to an unsound budget posi- ...

HIS MAJESTY'S THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933

HIS MAJESTY'S THEATEE. It is claimed that not since the Vanbrugh-Bouclcault comedy season has Brisbane been favoured with an English comedy company of the emin- ence of the Isobel Elsom Company, which inaugurates its Brisbane season at His Majesty's Theatre on Septem- ber 9 with Noel Coward's comedy, "Private Lives." Miss Elsom, who occupies a high position among the fore- most comedy actresses of the London stage, is idçally equipped to portray the leading roles, in a series of modern comedies in which she will be seen here, A perfect foil for her is George Barraud, who appeared in Australia some years ago as leading man for Pauline Frederick. His polished man- ner and whimsical comedy sense make him an ideal exponent of the cynical young man of modern comedy of the Noel Coward type. Also in the com- pany are Misses Margery Caldlcott und Charlotte Frances, from leading London theatres, who are making their first appearance in Brisbane, and Har vey Adama, who will make a welciuaa re...
