ITALY'S DICTATOR A DETERMINED PERSONALITY HOW HE WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 16 January 1929
ITALY'S DICTATOR A DETERMINED PERSON ALITY HOW HE WORSS. A .visitor to the Palazzo Chiig, where S^ignpr Mussolini lives and works when infiome, is conscious at .once of a pro found stillness. There is (writes tuc £on«e . correspondent of a London paper) none of the cheerful chatter of the cafes in the corridors of the pal azzo. ££gnor Mussolini believes that silence is essential to efficiency. The attendants gave the fascist sal ute in complete silence, and conversa tion', was conducted in a whisper. I was taken to a door, through which 1 was ' gently guided, and found myself in an enormous room, at the .opposite angle of which was seated a figure at a desk— SussolinL There was an array of - telephones beside' him, but on the de&k notbin gbut a memorandum pad.

NORTHAM'S MYSTERY SUPPOSED ALLIGATOR IN THE AVON. Northam, January 16 [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 16 January 1929
NORTHAM'S MYSTERY . ? — — . «-»» ? SUPPOSED ALLIGATOR IN THE AVON. Northam. January 16 The hunt for the mysterious creatui-«» alleged to have been seen contused last, night by the police. Half of the inhabitants of the town lined the banks of the river above the weir where the creature which was thought to be an al ligator, was reported to have been seen several times. Inspector Johnson, who saw it last night,, said tEat it was about eight feet long. Several theories to explain the pres ence of the alligator in the river have been advanced. A man taking kangaroos, emus and other animals from the North to the Zoological Gardens, at South Perth rec-' entl camped for a night in Northam and it is thought that he may have had an alligator which escaped. Zoo authorities have no record of an alligator having been' brought dowp' by^ihat man. Another theory is that an alligator's egg was carried down by an employee of the Wyndham Meat Works and it might have hatched.

PECULIAR POWERS MYSTIFYING PASSES. A strange and mysterious power by which a young Lyons man can dry up an omnge, convert a beef steak into leather, or stop the germination of vegetables by a few mystic passes, is (writes the correspondent of the Lon don.''' Daily Espress') puzzling all the savants of France. . It '''dates from one Sunday; evening, when M. Georges Gaillard, aged 33, a 'shoe dealer, and amateur hypnotist, re turned home, went into the 'kitchen and picked up two mutton chops. He held the chops in bis hand for a minute, and then, to his astonishment, saw that they had actually shrivelled up. The next day Gaillard went to relate his ,,strajige experience! to Dr. Eumond Lo-- avd^the noted director of the police technical .laboratory.

LIKE SHEBA'S DAYS SCENES OF BARBARIC , SPLENDOUR (By Mary Gannt). . Adis Abbaba is a city enbowtered in trees, great clumps and evenness of blue-green eucalyptus, tinged wiii. a delicate reddish-pink where the new foliage is sprouting, with here and there to break the monotony a tail dark green tree not unlike an English elm. ? me predominant note is green, the green of the eucalyptus of Australia, has a beauty all its own. The keen air is like champagne, for all the sun which deluges the country in colour ful light is the ' blazing sun of ths tropics. - . . The houses are barely visible among, the groves of trees; but there are nu merous narrow footpaths all converg ing on the city. On the great friast day these paths were crowded with a ' multitude of white-clad people, most with the broad red diagonal stripe that . denotes the Abyssinian soldier. A mighty army it looked on this sunny day in -Ethiopia. s It was a great feast! All the approaches to the palace grounds were lined wit...
CENTRAL AUSTRALIA PROBLEM OF SETTLEMENT HOSTILE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 16 January 1929
CENTRAL AUSTRALIA PROBLEM OF SETTLE MENT HOSTILE NATIVES. 'Two1 glaring mistakes appear to me to have been, made in the administra* tion of Central Australia. The first is the lack of white women in, the coun try because of the preference to single men for Government positions, and ths* second is the absence of a proper Pro- ! tcctor of Aborigines. ' ' . This opinion j was expressed by Br. L. E. de Ridder, j of the Bush Brotherhood (the Anglican : outback missionary organisation) in Adelaide recently. 'I believe it is true that until re cently the preference of Government appointments has been, given to single men,' continues Mr. de Bidder. 'Sur- ely it ought to be the other way round? It is not good for men to be alone. There arc sonic white -women in the country ,and some of them an- without bush experience. It is wonder ful how well they settle do*, a and how happy they can become. We want j more and more of them, because it is . only the presence of white women that 1 keeps most...

Wax -SeraU-fcm (SirarMsm & (£xpr*00 WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16, 1929 THE BLACK SHEEP RETURNS Thoughtful and moderate members of the Australian Labour Party will view wiiu some misgiving the return of Mr. J. S. Garden to the party fold. Mr Garden was expelled from the- move ment four years ago, his offence being that he had stood as a Communist can: du^te^ He^pj^cja^ Jtetjie .,;»«£ titled by effluxion'of time to membpr^ ship of the party, and therefore takes .for granted his re-admission. It may be true that the rules of the party entitle an expelled member to seek re-admission after four years, but it is surely essential that the expelled member's record during those four years should be taken into account be fore he is accepted once more as' a full member. Since Mr. Garden 's ex- j pulsion from the party he has until ! very recently provep the most active and unashamed propagandist of Com munism in the Commonwealth, and the; affiliation of the Trades and- Labour Council with the...
JAPAN'S ROYAL HOUSE THE NEW EMPEROR 124th IN UNBROKEN LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 16 January 1929
JAPAN'S ROYAL HOUSE THE NEW EMPEROR 124tli IN DTNBROKEN IJNE. With solemn rites and a ceremonial which has been in use since the dawn of history, the Emperor Hirohito, of Japan, was enthroned on November 10, at Kyoto, the ancient capital of his dynasty. He is the 124th ruler in an unbroken line from the Emperor Jemnra Tenno in the 7th century B.C.— not long after Romulus had been thinking of the foundation of Borne. *- It is nearly tort) years since the Im perial accession, but it is the Japanese .tradition that the enthronement shall be postponed until tbe long period of national mourning is over. The Crown has never figured in .Japan as the supreme emblem of power. It's place is taken by: The Mirror, The Sword, The Sacred Stone. These are gifts of the Sun Goddess to the founder of the Imperial House. They figure in elaborate ceremonies, the inspiration of which is entirely in the past. Even their date could not be announced until it had been communi cated by special messenger to t...

SOFTWOODS* SHORTAGE NEW ZEALAND OPERATIONS. Thq imminent world shortage of softwoods, owing to the enormous de mands on its resources for paper pulp, artificial silk and many other subsid iary uses, indicates clearly the urgent necessity for «stablishing plantations for the commercial production of soft woods.
