OUR COUNTRY SECTION RECORD ENTRIES AT GAWLER SHOW Great Variety of Products [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 5 October 1931
1 OUR COUNTRY SECTION RECORD ENTRIES AT GAWLER SHOW Great Variety of Products A suggestion was made early in the year that the Gawler show should be discontinued, but the outstanding suc cess of the exhibition on Saturday proved that such a policy would nave leen most unwise. The entries In nearly every class constituted a record, and there was a large attendance. . Situated in the centre of a district which probably produces a greater variety of primary products than any other part of the State, the Gawler exhibition should be the most impor tant in the State, excepting the Boyal Show. Every kind of cereal is pro duced—wool, fat Iambs, pigs, poultry, and dairy produce, and the vineyards, orchards, and gardens of Barossa are among the best in the Commonwealth. The president (Mr. Theo. Kemp) and the secretary (Mr. L S. Duncan) were pleased with the success of the show. 'We must in the future endeavor to ?void clashing with other shows, such as Morphett Vale,' said Mr. Kemp. This vail...

He has won many track and &nbsp; &nbsp; open contests over distances from one mile upwards.

The fullmarathon dis- &nbsp; tance, which was run by Jolly on Satur- day, was 26 miles and 385 yards. Jolly after winning the State 10-mile race two months ago, decided to undergo.special...

MR. LANG THOUGHT TO SEEK FEDERAL SEAT Perturbed By N.S.W. Troubles CAUCUS CANVASSED Canberra, October 5. Week-end developments in Syd- &lt;*> ney have a significant bearing on Federal politics. Mr. Land's attack on the chairman of the Com- I monwealth Bank Board (Sir Robert Gibson), and his hint at the Eight Hour dinner of his intention to enter the Federal sphere, are regarded in Ministerial circles as a sign that his reign as Premier of New South Wales, is ending. | Mr. Lang, it is suggested, is greatly •worried over the political outlook in New South Wales, and contemplates a dramatic entry into Federal politics by way of the Reid electorate, at present represented by Mr. Percy Coleman, who is re-contesting the seat as a Scullin supporter. A Government spokesman said today that Mr. Lang would lead the Labor industrialists at the coming Federal election, and that be was spon soring the present move in the Fede ral Lajrar caucus to precipitate an earlier appeal to the pe...

Premier The Premier (Mr. Hill) was out- &lt;*> spoken yesterday on the subject of the recent utterances of the Premier of New South Wales (Mr. Lang) about the arrival of a revolution and the suc cess of the Lang poricy. "Mr. Lang's policy was to stop the payment of overseas interest, adopt a huge borrowing programme to resus citate industry, and set up a new cur rency on the goods standard. There is no T.smf> piati today," said Mr. Hill.. "Mr. Lang has signed the Premiers' ■ Plan, and has introduced it into legis lation." To sbow how the Lang plan bad failed. Mr. Bill pointed out that the New South Wales Government was tbe' only.

"Must Go Back To Gold" Melbourne, October 5. In a discussion at the University to- &lt;*> night on the gold standard, Associate Professor Dr. G. L. Wood said perma- &lt;*> nent departure from gold was imprac- wsioie. return at the old, or at a new mint par. was inevitable. The chal lenge given by Britain to force central bank policies to keep in step would ultimately restore gold to its govern ing function in world prices The way back to a gold standard for all countries was for America and France to issue a long term loan at a low rate of interest, and should gold prices rise in response to these mea sures the crisis would be over, since redundant gold stocks in France and America would circulate again and an immediate return of confidence' in com modity production would restore indus trial activities and employment.

POINTS FROM LETTERS Gold and Potatoes [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 6 October 1931
POINTS FROM LETTERS Gold and Potatoes From A. Barham Black:—How can Mr. Datson expect me to reply to a letter which ranks "the gold question as a myth, because potatoes are as good a 'measure of value' as that metal"? A currency primer seems needed first. After that, if be still goes to market a-bartering with his sack of spuds on shoulder, may I, like the author of "John Gilpin," be there to see. Re the Franco-Prussian indemnity. Mr. Saunders's authority deals only with the specie France handed to Germany.

Mr. Hill quotes 60 million bushels as his estimate of this season's harvest re turns. We have an area of four mil lion acres under cultivation. Can we get an average of 15 bushels? I am safe in eaying, we shall not. We have fully half of the area sown on scrub or sandy soils, and the best we can ex pect from this may be an average all through of nine bushels, leaving a lee way to be made up by the heavier soils of an average of about 20 bushels. Office figures and actual returns are often very wide aoart. caused, as a rule, through the vagaries of the weather, and this, I fear, may be .the case with us this year. There is no gain saying that we have had a wonderful start in respect to seasonable rains; but we are about to experience a real taste of summer, and the most critical month of the whole season. Our early sown crops have made great growth, but on a...
