A BIG OPENING AT THE ROYAL. Thus our Show Critic: — At last the gates of the Theatre noyal were thrown open to the amuse ment-loving public of Perth. At 7.30 this evening it was evident that a capa city bouse was going to wltnoss the ini tial screening. At 8 p.m. there was not a vacant seat in the house. And what a programme. The films were really remarkable examples of cinema tography, and were different from the ordinary run of pictures that conic our wav. The big film of the evening was 'What Women Love,' featuring the Australian mermaid, Annette Kellerman. The film must be classed as a first-clasp romorty -drama. Rich In humour, thrills, and beauty. To make a long description short, it Is i fine entertain ing foatii'-e The supporting film.

CYCLING AUSTRALIA'S GREATEST MOTOR CYCLIST. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 28 May 1921
CYCLING AUSTRALIA'S GREATEST MOTOR CYCLIST. Harold Parsons, champion motor cy clist of Australia, holder of most of tbe Australasian and a number of world's records, was killed recently. While rtding his machine he struck a horse standing in the roadway and was burled into the air. He landed on his head and fractured his skull so badly that he died ten minutes after admission to Melbourne Hospital. Parsons was, without doubt, the greatest rider Australia has produced. He was a marvel both on road and track. and arter so many wonderful perfor mances it is hard luck that he should be killed in such a simple manner. Thr» most wonderful performance to Parsons' credit was to cover 1114-1 miles in 24 hours on the road at Mori lake (Vic). During this ride he es tablished 27 worlds records, which still stand. This performance astound ed even the authorities in Yankeeland. Ho has broken the Sydney-Melbourne re cord 011 several occasions, and his fig ures starting: from Sydney and finishing s...

A Chat With Buttrose ANENT HIS FOX EILMS [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 28 May 1921
A Chat With Buttrose ANENT HIS FOX FILMS A few issues back we announced that the vacant managership at the local office of Fox Films Limited would be filled by Mr. Buttrose- Last issue we mentioned that the new manager was one of the best of 'good fellows,' and that, he was going to be a popular light in the local film world. This issue we repeat our- selves with emphatic emphasis on &nbsp; each word. Thus, a few days back, we made a determined raid on the local office of the 'Fox outfit,' with the one object of interviewing the said Mr. Buttrose. Down the steps of the Melrose Buildings, toddled the weary scribe. It was then that he realised that he was descending into a den of hustling business-like individuals. A couple of attractive young ladies were busily engaged harmonising the 'Dardanella' on their typewriters. Still, we were there for a purpose. *Is Mr. Buttrose handy?' was the question put to one young lady. 'Yes; step this way, please.' 'Hello, Mr. Buttrose. We've ...

A Petrol Economiser [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921
fl Petrol €c«notni$tr The function of a carburetter on a motor car is to mix air and petrol vapor in such proportions that the most economical anS effective re sults are obtained under all circum stances The problem is, however, difficult. As a matter of fact, no carburetter gives the most economi cal and effective results at all speeds prove matters in this direction, a de vice has been brought out through which air is admitted into the intro duction-pipe under certain condi tions. It consists of a springcon trolled air valve, which is fitted just above the fhrottie. When the cav is climbing a hill, with the throttle fully open the suction is not fully po werful enough to : r-en the a-r valve. But when the motor is throttled down for descending a hill, a partial vacuum is created in the mduction and with all loads. In order to im pipe, and air is drawn in. The effect of the extra air is to reduce the suc tion at the throttle, and consequent ly, the amount of petrol consumed. At tri...
