HORNIBROOK IN SLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930

HORNIBROOK IN SLIPS. One pleasing feature of the play the Australians in Tasmania lias been the work of Percy Hornibrook »n the slips. With the retirement of Jack Gregory Australia has no out standing fieldsman in this position,; *-nd fears have been expressed that; the deficiency might be felt, in Engri 'and. If Hornibrook can fill the bill satisfactorily it will be a great thing for Australia. He has always been; noted as a safe fieldsman behind the wicket, but some of his catches in , Launceston and Hobart have been; described hriUiant. With his: height and long reach, the Queens-' iander should be able to gather in! patches that other men probably would have no chance of reaching.

BOTH SIDES OF THE FENCE [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930

I BOTH SIDES * OF THE FENCE j (By 'THE MAN ON TOP') Private Enterprise is either a great ass or a great prevaricator, and a 'General Merchant's' recent) lament in an Adelaide paper doesn't 1 settle the question. According- to this yarn, the benevolent gentlemen ; who import ales and stout are . now i making no profit worth mentioning, while the merchants who pass the| liquid goods on to hotels and grocers i are actually losing 3 per cent, on; the value of each transaction.! Heaven knows just why they com-j mit this surprising folly — apparently 1 they must sell imported goods or] burst. The curious feature of thej sad case is that 'General Merchant' I seems to think they deserve sym pathy. And in a way they do. Men who are prepared to lose money rather than give their own country! a job can't be sane. J * * * * I I iiold your horses, while I j tell you in bad prose and worse verse what 1 think about ^he coming gene ral election. If it were not for the fact that I have to spend at le...

GOING QUIETLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930

GOING QUIETLY. In Sydney, supervising the pre paration of Dark Man and Broken Doll, Mr. Eric Connolly showed at the last Moorefield meeting that his recent illness had not marred his astuteness as a punter. Among the horses backed by him ! were tne winners 01 tne nrst six races, and at least one of the horses successful later in the day. 'Con,' ! however, is taking his racing quietly, for the time being. He did not dash about the betting ring, nor did he I bother carrying field glasses. |

RED TAPE IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930

RED TAPE IN FRANCE. I Three and a half years ago a wo man living at Chatelet, near Dijon, threw a rabbit into the Saone. The operation caused a mere ripple at the time, and the woman had no idea that it was to be the cause of an ex traordinary repercussion. But that bunny's face has been the subject of much anxious thought to legal lumi naries. First, the River Authority, apprehensive of the dire influence which the rabibit, though only a little one, might have on the navigation of the stream, summoned the womai^ under a law passed in the year 1727. So grave was the matter that it came before the Inter-Departmental Cons eii de Prefecture. That authority arrived at the conclusion that ti was not competent to deal with the com plaint. So the 'Afaire Lapin,' with all its baffling intricacies, was passed on to the Ministry of Public Works. Many a high official there must have] had the normal placidity of his rou tine intolerably disturbed by the study of the growing dossier of the innoc...

NOT A JOKE BOOKMAKERS RESPECT THE TOTE. PRICE BOARDS INTRODUCED. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930

NOT A JOKE BOOKMAKERS RESPECT THE TOTE. ? 1 PRICE BOARDS INTRODUCED.! English bookmakers have given up! regarding the totalisator as a joke, j and are now treating it as a serious competitor. One result is that at courses where such procedure is permitted, many members of Tattersall's Ring are now exhibiting betting lists for the various races. 1 They were used in Tatt's Ring at the January Hurst Park meeting, and while the system was appreciated by| the public it also gave many 'books' j increased business. j One prominent layer said that in j his case the result was remarkable. His turnover 011 one race was £700.' Under previous conditions it would! not have been more than £200. | It is easy to understand backers j liking the lists. They can see at a, glance the prices of the fancied | horses, and can get something more, than 12 to 1 about a rank outsider.) At English, as at some Australian! meetings, many bookmakers have an! idea 12 to 1 should be the limit about horses which, on...

A VITAL DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930

A VITAL DIFFERENCE. Lenin is accused of having 'favored the Taylor system of reduc ing ail work to a minimum of move ment.' Well, what was wrong with that? The Taylor system, under Capital ism, is the last debasement of servi tude. In a Socialist State, however, it would be a means to greater free dom. It makes all the difference in the world whether you are doing a thing for yourself, of your own volition, and for your own benefit, or at the command and for the profit of an other person. Lenin knew that. He knew that in the workshops and factories of pri vate enterprise the drilling of the workers, in order that they might do their work in the shortest possible time, land with the minimum of exer tion, meant turning then into auto muLons, stripping them ot all indi viduality of mind and spirit, and in-l tonsifying the exploitation to which Lhey were subjected. But he knew, too, that Socialism transformed all that. Where men combine to toil for the satisfaction of their own wants, a...

WORKING TO MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930

WORKING TO MUSIC. Working to music is not by anyj means a new idea. During the war it was a common sight to see a bat talion of soldiers coming- along the road, tired and weary after a long march; but when the regimental band struck up they would uncon-| sciously step out as if new life had! been put into them. Molten iron is not generally associated with music: Yet during the last few weeks one of the leading iron foundries -in Bir mingham has installed a gramophone and distributed loud speakers over the factory, so that everyone is lite rally working to music. The pi'inci pal reason for putting music in this particular foundry was to create and maintain a cheerful atmosphere. Bright and lively music is played for an hour every morning and. afternoon — light opera and army marches are the most popular. It is found that the men quickly tire of ; moaern aance music, it is amusing) to see a man pushing a wheel-barrowl [ when a regimental march is being] | .played — he finds it impossi...

THE NEEDS OF SMALL PEOPLE. RIGHT CLOTHES HELP THE CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930

THE NEEDS OF SMALL PEOPLE. RIGHT CLOTHES HELP THE CHILD. In the world of children's clothing changes have come very slowly, and,' though we have in the past few years adopted more rational styles in dealing with the needs of small people, there is still much to be learned. I For example, when children are very young we clothe them in little gai-ments that button in front, sol mat rneir smau arms nave to be| pulled in all directions in order to get' the garments on. Later when old enough to battle with the intricacies of their own 'buttons, we change the style and dress them in garments which have out-of-reach back fasten ings. E^rly training can be given a child in the art of dressing himself. The operation is a difficult and fumb ling one at first, therefore why not| try to simplify it for him? 1 A wise parent w'i see that every! one of a child's garments follows certain easy rules of construction. In :;uch a way is self-reliance instilled, early. It is an easy matter for -an adult...

Sowing Autumn Seeds. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930

i Sowing Autumn Seeds. j With the approach of the autumn j seeding season a few general hints! on sowing seeds will probably pre- 1 vent a number of failures in the gar-j den. For swept peas and the larger' seeds ordinary garden mould is suit-i able for a seedbed, but for finer, seeds it is necessary to have th e j soil very finely divided, and freely I mixed with sand and leaf mould or! wen-rotted tun. Do not make thej mistake of obtaining the sand from; the seashore, as the salt adhering toj it is inimical to. plant growth. ' No! flower seed should be sown more than half an inch below the surface, and: most varieties will be sufficiently j covered at a depth of a quarter of] an inch. The finest seeds require j no covering other than pressing into! the soil on which they have been; sprinkled. Care should be taken in! watering the very young plants: a! fine spray, such as the from a ciothes; sprinkler, or, better still, from the atomiser supplied wit h liquid insec ticides, will do ...
