OUR DEFENCE POLICY. NO RADICAL CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924

OUR DEFENCE POLICY. NO RADICAL CHANGE. Mr. Bowden, Minister for Defence, j hits made a statement which dis counts the likelihood of any radical departure from what are known to be the Government's intentions in regard to Australian defence. I The chief - new interest is in the programme lux me uuwftatuu x/uwr yard. tilr. Bowden said it was in tended to build there three cruisers within 3 years, a commencement to be made with one almost at once. After that a cruiser would be built every three years, till all necessary replacements had been made. The outstanding issue appears to be whether or not the period of train ing for the citizen forceB shall be lengthened. Mr. Bowden favors a year being added to the course, which, it is estimated, would in crease the expenditure by £100,000. THE NAVY. Discussing the naval policy, Mr. Bowden said that the Adelaide was good for another ten .years; the Syd ney had been overhauled, at a cost of from £70,000 to £80,000, and was capable of three or f...

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL. So many people are under the im pression that Canberra is an English name, awarded with the fixing of the Federal Capital site, that it will, per haps, be a matter for general sur prise to find Dr. Robinson ('Can- berra's First Hundred Years,' by Frederick W. Robinson, M.A., Fh.D.) stating definitely that the word is, without any doubt, a local native name. Nor is there any doubt, he says, that in pronunciation it should be accented on the first syl lable, with the 'c' in the second syllable almost omitted. Further, with the original users of the word — whether it was Canberry, Can burry, Canbury or Canberra — the 'a' was soft, as in 'father.' If, there fore, we would have the name of our capital city-to-be thoroughly Austra lian, it would appear that we must pronounce the word 'Cam-bra.' This book is a decided acquisition to Australian historical literature, completing as it does ata excellent trio of monographs on Canberra his tory:' the other two are Mr. Henr...

FATE, THE FICKLE JADE. PITY THE POOR PUNTER. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924

FATE, THE FICKLE JADE. PITY THE POOR PUNTER. The Daily Telegraph has this about the poor punter: — Fate, the fickle jade, lured the punter to his undoing. Everywhere one elbowed his way through the babbling throng he heard it pro claimed that the day would be a day of favorites. 'Follow the money and you must win!' was the frequent in junction — bestowed (as Gordon says) with unction — that fell upon willing ears; so much so, that when Delusion — ominous name to begin with — snatched a Hurdle victory on the post, and Rapine followed up by run ning over the field in the last few yards of the weight-for-age race, the evidence was all in favor of the pro phets. And then the debacle. Claro was taken to the barrier in the belief that the English horse was the greatest of racehorse certainties. Unmindful of the proverb that the race is not always to the swift, money literally poured into the gaping bags of the bookmakers. Somewhere else in these columns they tell in detail of how a favori...

£30 a Bale for Wool. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924

? i £30 a Bale for Wool. j Time was, and not so long ago, j when £12 per bale was regarded as a fair price for the wool clip. When the average rose to £20 pastoralists were jubilant. Last season's average price was about £24 a bale. This season it is over £30 — at least, that is the Customs' valuation. Figures just announced show that 1 646,494 bales have been exported : from New South Wales during the current season. The valuation is put down at £20,873,894. That works out at £30 15s. 9d. per bale. Those j are truly great figures. j

No title [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924

-J*HE SPIBIT OF ANZAC has been much talked of lately. In the terrible stress of War, the_ Anzacs learned- that many things arc quite unimportant. Like Byron, -they did not enquire of the brave soldier who fought by their side whether their creeds or politics agreed. They pnivin tn knnw that there are eood men in all classes of life and to value a man because he was a Man. They learned, too, the value of coopera tion and helpfulness. They learned to thintt of others and to help them. Nothing was more striking in the rccent celebrations than the marked growth of civilian clothes amongst the Digger demonstrators. They were never professional soldiers, but citizens called to arms by^the pres sure of a great necessity. They have returned to civil life, bearing with them the lessons learned in the hard school of war. It is inevitable ? ? ? ? the community in which they live some of. the truths they learned in the fateful years of their absence. It will be well for the community that they ...

Cotton in Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 2 May 1924

Cotton in Australia. ] An authoritative article dealing with the present position of cotton growing in Australia, and the possi bility of our becoming an im portant source of supply, is pub lished in the Current issue of the 'Bulletin of the Imperial Institute.' The author, Mr- W. H. Johnson, who was -at one time Director of Agricul ture in the Southern Provinces, Ni geria, recently paid a visit to Aus tralia, to report on the suitability of different parts of the country for cotton cultivation. Mr. Johnson discusses the problems confronting the planter in the vari ous regions where cotton growing has been proposed, and concludes that the soil and climatic conditions in large portions of Queensland, northern New South Wales, and South Australia, are well adapted for cotton cultivation, but carefully con ducted trials will be necessary to de cide whether the crop can be grown profitably on a large commercial scale.
