MENAGE OF INFLATION [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
MENAGE OF INFLATION Mr. Grenfell Price's Lecture "It may be necessary to take a strong line with New Sooth Wales, and to let that State leave the Loan Council and repudiate its debts. Only by such an action will Australia learn that in this way madness lies," said Mr. A. Grenfcll Price last night. Mr. Price was addressing the annual meeting of the Political Reform League on "The Menace of Inflation," andwas outlining proposals for dealing with the present financial crisis in Aus tralia. "It will be better to have a bankrupt New South Wales than a bankrupt AustaaHa," he added, amid applause. Growth of Fear Mr. Price traced the parallel symp toms of inflation in Germany and Aus tralia, and pointed out that a leading symptom was the growth of fear, which had already reduced the Australia pound to a value of only 5/ in London although the nominal rate was stili 15/4. If the present political leaders defeated the banks and gained control of the currency, the same depreciation of the poun...

WORK PLUS RATIONS Mr. Butler "Dumbfounded" at Government Plan LAND TAX PROTESTS FROM COUNTRY "A calamitous policy of peace at any price still prevails," was how the leader of the Opposition (Mr. Butler) described yesterday the decision of the Government to give rations to men who are also earn big 12/6 a day on unemployment relief work." "It leaves me dumbfounded. I find it difficult to understand that while the Government could exceed the ex penditure voted by Parliament for un employment relief, it could not, at that time, assist farmers to put in their crops this year. "The cost of unemployment relief is growing daily and I hold the view strongly that the Government should be compelled to demand some service for money now being paid." Land Tax Assessments Mr. Butler had spent the week-end at Owen, where he and his colleague, Mr. Dennison, had addressed a large meeting of farmers. Mr. Butter said he had told them some plain truths and had heard some himself. The land tax assessmen...
ROOMS TO LET AT AUSTRALIA HOUSE Reduced Staff and Fewer Tourists LONDON, February 24. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
ROOMS TO LET AT AUSTRALIA HOUSE Reduced Staff and Fewer Tourists LONDON, February 24. With economies, reduction of stuff, and a severe curtailment in the num- ber of Australian tourists who make it their rendezvous, Australia House, where a free cinema show is no longer a magnet, is becoming increasingly empty of people. When the Defence Department's latest economies operate fully, and there is only one liaison staff instead of three for the military, naval and air force sections, there will be still more vacant space. The whole floor of one wing of tbe building was vacated when the Migra tion Department was virtually wiped out last year. As a sign of the times a large board was erected on the outside to-day noti fying the pnblic that suites of offices were available to private tenants, thus competing with the huge American business house adjoining, where To Let boards are conspicuous.
"ALL BUNKUM" Caucus Not Puzzled on Finance, Mr. Lacey Declares [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931

(Lab.) yesterday described the report that members who attended the recent meeting of the Federal Labor Caucus were confused at the result of the voting on the financial plans placed before it. Mr. Lacey said members knew full well that there was no difference be tween the plan submitted at Caucus meeting and that at the Premiers' Con ference. "The three-year plan and Mr. Theo dore's plan are one and the same," he declared. "It would have been trick ery had they been different. "No member of Parliament is so silly that he deos not know what he is vot ing for." Mr. Lacey also described as "ridicu lous" the*rumors that Mr. Scullin and members of the Federal Ministry had resigned. "Mr. ScuUin or the others will not throw in portfolios without first con sulting, Caucus," said Mr. Lacey.
BUILDING ACTIVITY RAISES WORKERS' SPIRITS Many Will be Needed for Shell Building [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
BUILDING ACTIVITY RAISES WORKERS' SPIRITS Many Will be Needed for Shell Building Representatives of unions connected with the building industry axe natur- ally delighted at the decision of the Shell Company to erect a large building on North-terrace, as it will mean pro viding work for a number of good tradesmen now idle. "I expect that between 40 and 50 car penters will be required on the job," said the secretary of the Carpenters and Joiners' Society (Kir. P. E. Lynch) yesterday, "and this will be a welcome development. Although under the more modern methods of construction there is not the same demand for carpenters, they will be necessary In good' numbers for such work as the making of frames for the concrete work. Much excava tion and foundation work will be done, and it may be some time before the operations in which carpenters are in terested are in full swing." While expressing appreciation or the demonstration of faith in the future on the part of the company, represen tati...

Madame Delmar ttmll who has designed the costumes, said yesterday. She herself played the part of Lazarillo for three years. There would be several surprises for those who attended, she said. Singers new to the public would maire their bow. New Dramatic Tenor Mr. James F. Currie is one of these. A dramatic tenor, he confesses that this will be "his first test of nervous ness." He will be Don Caesar, an im petuous spendthrift, who gets himself intor-and out of—a lot of bother, in cluding a firing squad and a wall at dawn. All p...

"He started this system of fanning in Victoria." Wheat returns had been patchy in tbe South-East, he went on. Some crops that promised to produce 10 bags to tbe acre bad returned only five, on account of red rust attacks and un favorable weather conditions. Federa tion...
