Thousands of Home buyers who hold their Homes under mortgage will be vitally interested in the conference be tween Norou Pineur members of the fed eral government and banking and financial institutions on tuesday. The conference has been arranged to enable the government to ascertain the Prospect of securing another Cut in private interest before getting to grips with budget problems at Cabinet meet Ings which begin at the end of the month. Some important discussions in relation to the budget will depend on the Suc Cess of the conference on tuesday. Preliminary discussions Between minis ters have indicated that the government might be Able to provide tax Relief considerably in excess of the 1932-3 surplus of 3% millions. Probable tax Relief in influential circles it is thought that the government can safely Frame a tax reduction programme of 5% millions. The government is committed to a sub Stantial reduction of the 10 per cent super tax on property the land tax and the sales tax and under article 14 of the Ottawa agreement to some reductions which affect primate on British goods. It is expected that wheat Relief will Cost less in the 1933-4 season. Last Finan Cial year More than two millions was spent in this direction. Primates Are More important factors in the budget situation than is generally thought. Primate is purely a Revenue impost. It was introduced by the Seul Lin government during a time of acute Fin Ancial emergency. There Are some Strong cases for its abolition. It May be practicable however to Cut this impost in half. Or. Alternatively to exempt All goods of British origin from primate and thus show that Australia is determined to observe the Ottawa agreement in the spirit As Well As in the letter.

Lyons is to be commended for the definite stand lie made Ajja inst the theoretical and impossible Kronos Al of the Onnon tits if Australia s Tariff said the presi Dent of the chamber of manufactures or. A. R. Uren. He was referring to or. Lyons statement to a deputation yesterday that its request for re enactment of toe 1921.30 Tariff Laws was the most in decent request made to him since he had been prime minister he emphatically refused to accent the request. Or Lyons took the Only sane stand continued or. Uren. Constant changes in the Tariff rates have the most serious repercussions on the investment of Capi Tal in secondary industries and dislocate whole of the distributing warehousing and other organisations. Stood by country the men to be upheld Are those who have invested their capital in australian industries and who Are employing the greater bulk of australian workmen. These Are the men who stood by austra Lia and helped through the crisis. Now that the Load is easing a Little is it sensible to suggest that the factories that have been built up and the staffs that have be n trained shall be cast aside for some theoretical fancy when it was realised that the total imports of British goods was approximately 29 million pounds a year while australian manufactures used by austra lians total 291 millions we have something to protect. In View of the extraordinary revela Tion of nationalism at the last big London conference the deputation s request is amazing. All the nations of the world Are erecting barriers against Australia rhe Sydney deputation was an attempt to make Australia a dumping ground for the world s goods said or. Even. Those to suffer would be the Mil Lions engaged in our factories the thou Sands of unemployed whose Hope of work would be utterly dashed and the army of youths who Are seeking their life s vocation in our country. The whole world is appalled at the Competition that has set in from Japan. Today we read that France is dumping wheat into England at the expense of one of our chief Export commodities. America has deflated her currency to boost exports and Germany is having a political revolution preparatory to a commercial re Volution. Make foreigner pay yet Australia is asked to jeopardise her factories. Any reduction in tariffs must affect them and their employees. Revenue lost in customs duties will have to be made up in land income and sales taxes or by some new method to be de Vised. Surely it is better to make the foreigner pay than that our own people should be mulch the managing director of general motor Holden e Ltd. Or. E. W. Hoi Der took the same View. I feel very definitely that to accede to the requests of the deputation would wreck the manufacturing Industry in Australia he said. If the Tariff was altered As suggested our Trade balance could not Bear the additional Burden and Australia would 6oon and herself in financial difficulties again or. Norman Taylor a former president of the chamber of Commerce said he could see no Hope for the world until Tariff barriers were broken Down. Gir William Mitchell Rice Chancellor of the University of Adelaide has accepted an invitation to be a vice president of the Institute. Of Public administration. Visitors to Ceylon must pay income tax to time is wasted by the taxation department in Ceylon in providing visitors with income tax forms. The Rev. H. H. Overall who returned by the liner Ben Digo which arrived at outer Harbor this afternoon had not been in Colombo three weeks when he was sent an income tax form demanding particulars of his income both in Ceylon and elsewhere. The form was printed in four languages English. Tamil. Singhalese and hindu Stani. The Clergyman however was not called upon to enrich the coffers of the government but he has brought the form Back with him As a memento. Or. Overall who is connected with the Bishop s Home missions and is stationed at the Meadours Mylor District Church went to Colombo for a Holiday. He studied the customs of the natives and the work of the Church there. The natives regard visitors As old mines and although begging is officially banned tourists Are asked for Money in All Parte of the Island he said. Something for nothing to us and Noth j in for nothing to you appeared to be their philosophy he continued. The Early dutch settlers and Colon its who pioneered the East indies had left j their Mark throughout the Island. The con 1 duct of the Law courts was More dutch j than English and practically every House occupied by europeans was of the dutch Bungalow Type of architecture. The most interesting of the native customs was the i procession of the tooth of Buddha. A casket was carried purporting to contain the sacred tooth. Actually the tooth we cd was contained in several Golden caskets one within the other in the Temple of the tooth Kandy was not taken from the Temple and the casket in the procession was empty. The celebrations comprised principally of a procession of elephants and began j with 28 elephants. It lasted 10 Days and each night the number of elephants was increased. Test before licence is necessary in the opinion of the motor traffic police the absence of a driving test for a licence is responsible for the majority of accidents although negligent driving is a contributing Factor. Commenting on the fact that during the last 12 months motor vehicles were involved in accidents in which 53 persons were killed and 1,149 injured one con table said it was a telling argument in favor of compelling All motorists to undergo a severe test before being granted a licence. As the Law stands now a person need never have been in a car before he said. Such a Driver is a menace on the Road and a potential killer. It is my Opi Nion that if every Motorist in South Australia were compelled to go to Victoria or new South Wales for a test in driving at least 60 per cent would return with out licences another official in the traffic department was equally emphatic in his disapproval of the present system. Even a mentally affected person can obtain a licence he Eaid. The Situa Tion is absurd and dangerous. Common 1 sense demands that All Drivers should i undergo a test and this state could Well \ follow the exam male set by new South Wales where Drivers have to undergo a it test in addition to satisfying the traffic police that they can handle a car properly one eyed Driver the official related an extraordinary Case that came under his notice recently. The Driver of a motor lorry had backed his lorry out of a Lane and it Ria Sheu into a Sedan car. The Driver of the car noticed that the lorry Driver had Only one Eye. I agreed with him that it was not right that a Man with such a disability should hold a licence and when i began to question the lorry Driver concerning the Accident he took a Book and Pencil from a pocket and wrote. Please write what you Are us Viii. As i am Stone deaf Eaid the official. He added that he was heartily in Accord with the Resolution adopted by the suburban municipal councils association that it should be compulsory for bicycles to be equipped with red rear lights at night.

Now women react to big Golf what does it feel like to take Purt in a championship i Rolf match a consensus of opinion among the Cromen who were Olav nor at Seaton for the state title this week was that there was always a great Deal of nervous Strain. With some people it Weara off As the match progresses but others Are never entirely free of it. Most of the women put it Down to temperament. Miss Helen Seeck who Defeated miss Rymill in the final admitted that she was very nervous about the match. That is one of the reasons i do not like serious Golf she said. I like the game for itself. I did not train for the title Berniee except for Odd rounds. If there were parties on i went otherwise i was in bed at my usual time. A woman who has the proper golfing temperament the sheer will to win. Will probably not be affected after the first couple of holes said mra. M. E. Ring Way of Kooyenga. People can Eay what they like but there is always a feeling of nervousness about an important game. Miss k. Rymill. Y Tell miss h. Seeck i do not advise playing Bridge before j a match. It seems to out my Eye out. J to far As food is concerned i do not make any Radical changes. Another whose Golf is a serious matter to her is the former state Champion. Miss Kath. Rymill.

Three thousand extra policemen were brought to London on that occasion and they surrounded the House in a cordon Eaid miss Codd today. I Wae told to try to enter the commons by a door under the clock Tower. I merely walked towards it when i was arrested. It was easy to be arrested in those Days and when i with 33 other suffragettes was brought before the judge the police had some difficulty in deciding under what heading i should be charged. Finally i was sentenced to a month in Holloway gaol for resisting the police in the execution of their duty we were taken off in the up wingless prison Van and i had the satisfaction of waving my Scarf which was knitted in the colors of the women s social and political Union out of the Black Maria As we bowled along. Prison Gnu meals once in Holloway i was ordered to re move my clothes and to Don come extra Ordinary prison garments. The dress was of coarse material and pleated so that it would fit any figure thin women had to tie it round their waists. I was Given a Blue deck duster for my neck and Ait other for my Waist. That was to be used As a pocket handkerchief. Over my head i Drew a three cornered handkerchief tied with eur Wiiks. On my first Day i was put in solitary confinement in my 10 x 10 cell alone with a Bible and a hymn Book. On the second Day i was set to making bags for postmen and later joined in.

Every Day we had a 2tf minutes religious service and it was considered a great punishment to be forced to. Miss it. The 33 other Sutra evettes and i used to communicate by joining in the hymns and using our own words. But. Unfortunately the War dresses soon discovered our Little trick. Twice a week we had a Long address from the prison chaplain. I remember that up in the gallery at the rear of the prison Chapel was a red Ern.
