Even finding a Job is an adventure at 15 Tuff parents never spanked me enough. A so i grew up with an overweening Confidence in my own ability. When i had completed three years at the Ade Laide technical High school without conspicuous Success but with excellent con duct they wanted me to Mark time on a 10-acre Block with cows and Clover As i had seen Little or nothing of the world this circumscribed programme made worse by the Low Price of produce and no Prospect of pay did not Appeal to me so i decided to leave Home. I left about 10 . On a sunday with a Blanket and a change of clothing and eight Pence. Strictly it was t Cricket but i was out for the big plunge into life urged by the desire to make Good and be Able to pay Back some of the Money spent on my education. 1 decided to spend the first night on the sports ground of my Alma mater the old technical High school the grass had been Burnt and i wandered Over the grounds looking for a Olean Patch on which to Camp and i finally found myself in a far Corner Here 1 received a Shock after a Brief inspection i found the position to be Usu Itne and on turning to return to my Case and Blanket i saw a grotesque figure approaching. It was illumined now and then by rays from Road lights coming through the Trees i must admit that by no Means did i feel at Home. Indeed. If Ever Home life annealed to me. Undoubtedly this was the time. On came the Man so slowly that it seemed to me that he was deliberately doing this to break my nerve. He came to within 10 paces of me. And stopped finally he came Forward a few Steps stopped and in a hesitating voice asked. Ere to there somebody ere reassured by Hie hesitation 1 said yes in a very thin voice. With a muttered. Sorry mate he left to look for another Dossing place not so soft i �iii1iiiiiii1iiiiiii1ii1uuiuiiiiiiiimiiiiiii ? recovering my Blanket i spread it out behind an empty tar barrel but soon found that i had not Learned the Art of rolling up snugly in a single Blanket nor was 1 adept at making myself at Home on the ground 1 doubt the Vera Ritj of novelists who write glibly of the comfortable position a camper gets by raking out a Little Hole to take hip hip. 1 squirmed All the Short night and my discomfort a heightened by the vicious stabs of millions of which Breed along the Torrens at 4 the Post Othre Dock s Chimes ? decided to abandon my attempts to sleep and 1 sat up in the Semi gloom to think Over my plans for the Day by 5 i bad p a ked my things and hidden them in a Fie tree crowing near a Wall of the or incr cultural Hall. 1 walked up Frome Road there were Many greengrocers vehicles going to Market and i thought 1 could do worse than to follow them i Milit Rake up a few Bob from them. I mused i asked a couple of men if they wanted any help one disdained to answer the other told me that if anybody could help him to sell and of his stuff he d Ive him a half share on the Day 1 offered to take = what prospects Are there for a lad of 15, one neither Brilliant nor Dull and who. � because his parents did not 1 spank him enough head mits it himself grew up 1 with an Over Weening conf 1 Dence in his own ability i g. Forbes now of barring i ton Road. Prospect decided to find out. So he left hit i Home unobserved late one i sunday night equipped with Only a Blanket change of \ clothing and eight Pence Here he tells his Story. On the proposition but he evidently thought somebody would buy his vege tables for he changed his mind. I spoke to another Vendor on the same lines. Hop it he yelled. Have you Ever heard of Bobbie Burns Little thought i asked him. His curiosity overcome his evil Namors. 0 wad some Power the Giftie Gie us to see our sol s As others see us i quoted. Adding. It s a pity you Haven t not that Power you might improve the Man could not leave his vegetables and i retired with the laughs of a few of the bystanders in my ears. Evidently the Narket was no place for me. But 1 gave it another fling. I Selec Ted a lorry. Which had an appearance of Prosperity the owner asked me for my references references i echoed weakly 1 decided that the greengrocer ine Busi Ness was too lowly for me. I tried seve ral engineering establishments but with out Success. On a seat on North Terrace 1 again thought of How 1 could get employment 1 visualised myself entering the precincts of a Lii Rue firm stalking up to the Idearest employee and haughtily asking for the manager on arriving at the manager s office i would say 1 have a complaint to put before you. Sir j yes he would say what is it 1 i then saw myself sitting on the i Corner of the table expounding to him on the complaint which was that of wasting opportunities in not living me a Job. When 1 finished he would Sav that he liked my spirit or something to that effect Ami would Eive me a very Nice Job the vision was so pleasant i decided to Irive it a Chance ii Van nearly 6 by the parliament i use clock so 1 considered in wkly. And decided to visit a bin i Nudie Stiesi firm i entered the store a shop re passed me 1 opened Niv Mouth to is k her the question but Niv courage High Judi then faltered it was then about four minutes to six j i or to the second Loor. My courage mount Iril with each step at the top i asked a lad dres de n Black and carrying some books where i might find trip Nia Naurer. \ was Dino to to the enquiry office. The lady in charge asked me what i wanted. I want to see the manager i said. Is it anything i can see to she asked. Is it anything to do with employment yes i gasped. This was entirely different from what i had anticipated my Faith in novelists was further shaken. The woman referred me to the staff superintendent on the next floor his typist said applicants for employ ment were interviewed Only Between 9.30 and 11 . Could Vou come in the morning could i Well yes i might be Able to. Thank you sounds Sood. I thought cheerfully As i went to the tree where my bedding was cached. I arranged my bed a a More sheltered place than that of the first night tired out. I slept from dusk til 5 . By 9.30 i was at the store waiting for the superintendent i sat none of four Chain one other was already occupied by an immaculately dressed youth and within five minutes the waiting room was comfortable filled. if i ii i to i a Courtesy failed if clothes make the Man. What Chan have i got 1 asked myself Comparin my clean but Well worn suit with the neat attire of the newcomers. The staff superintendent arrival glanced at us and went out again. During his absence a Youn lady arrived. She accepted my chair now i thought. If the super1 sees me stand ing. And remembers i was fitting when first he saw me. He might think adorably of me. But evidently he did t. He came in threw a fleeting glance at us All. And entered his office. Then began a the Voung lady was first in Aud out. Well said the super in a tired voice when my turn came. I lost the thread of a speech 1 had prepared i had Long since abandoned the brain wave complaint id a. Ani thought things were anything k 1 Well finally Blush me and stammering. I managed to Tell him that i would count it a favor if he would bestow in me the status of a permanent employee sorry he said. We have Nova candies. Have Yon filled in a application form fill one in and Call another Day i left the Little room by the exit door and almost fell Over a desk Mitsie i picked up a pen. Dipped it a the Ink. And then looked for the forms Thev were nor Ion the desk i spied another desk a Little further alone the Side of the office 1 tried it. But still could lot see i forms. I heard a snigger from one of the other Job Hunter before 1 finally found them Ner Herl up in Box attached to the Side of the office. By the time i had filled in the form i there were no applicants left in the ton of the second desk was � Slit in which the application forms had to be i dropped so i folded mine neatly but Dron in it would not the desk approximately four cubic feet in size was full i i left the store feeling that All the 1 pious wishes about merry Christmas and Good Fellowship to All Tien was a ghastly camouflage. How 1933 has benefited the people new Laws increase Liberty of subject notable changes in historic year important Bills passed the Liberty of the subject has been increased and respect for the Law strengthened because of Laws passed during 1933 which aimed to Lessen interference with the people s Freedom. Politically 1933 has been an historic year. Among the Many notable legislative achievements of parliament were the Bills that brought Back bookmakers and provided for a five year parliament. The City Council bylaws have in Many cases been made less restrictive. The provi Sions for the parking of motor vehicles and those relating to signs in the streets Are two instances. These alterations coupled with the amendment to the Speed limit Law made late last year have unquestionably served to make the Law More respected. At least three decisions of the High court Are worthy of note. In a recent Case the court held that interstate traffic in South Australia must obey All state Laws. The other two decisions affected wheat growers. One was that when wheat was stored with a merchant the property in it passed to the merchant. The Farmer therefore could not recover his wheat if the merchant failed to pay him for it. The second decision was that advances made on stored wheat to a Farmer by a merchant were to be treated Only As a loan. It followed that if subsequently the wheat sold for less than the amount advanced the Farmer was responsible for the difference. Other decisions of major importance which affect the Community As a whole or in a Large degree and made by Superior courts have been rare. A decision of the Federal government making legally compulsory the carrying of wireless on seagoing ships will prob ably be the Means of saving Many South australian lives. By the passage of the five year Parlia ments Bill the life of the present parliament was extended from three to five years. Originally it was intended in accordance with or. Butler s policy speech to make five year parliaments a permanent feature of the Constitution but an amendment limiting the operation of the measure to one parliament Only was carried in the legislative Council and accepted by the government. The passage through parliament of a Bill providing for licensed bookmakers on racecourses and licensed starting Price offices is a landmark in state history. Important measures another important measure passed by parliament this year provides for the establishment of the metropolitan and Export abattoirs Board. The old metropolitan abattoirs Board is automatically abolished and the new Board will consist of a chairman or. Mcgregor Reid and six members to be elected by the corporations and councils concerned and organisations of Stock owners Stock salesmen pig raisers and master butchers. The Board will control the slaughtering of meat in the metropolitan area both for Hope consumption and for Export As chilled or Frozen beef. Legislation providing for More effective precautions against Bush fires was also carried. A. Notable administrative change was the government s decision to impose High school fees which will operate on the re opening of the schools next year. University history was made thi6 year by the opening of the Johnson chemical Laboratory which Cost �28.000, and the laying of the foundation Stone of the Bonython Hall made possible by a Seifr of �40.000 by sir Langdon Bonython. Early in december. I an outstanding appointment was that of prof. E. O. G. Shann to the chair of economics a position which had been vacant since the resignation of prof. L. G. Melville in 1931. Prof. Shann. Who is a leading australian economist will begin his new duties Early nex year. Important alterations were made by the University Senate in the regulations governing Public examinations. Instead of having to obtain six subjects for inter mediate and leaving examinations Stu dents next year will be Able to secure certificates with Only five subjects. However stipulations have been made of the subjects that must be obtained so that much of the Benefit accruing to Stu dents through the alteration in the num Ber of subjects has been lost. New sporting stars were unearthed in several branches of sport during 1935. Keith Faulkner an athlete from the militia who donned the costume of the Western District athletic club for his first season carried everything before him in club and state Cross country running. The South australian 10,000 metres and 10 Miles Cross country titles were won by this Young athlete and now with the track season Well under Way he is again taking a prominent part being undefeated so far this season. Miss Griffiths win miss Gwen Griffiths who played Well today to defeat miss d. We on and enter the finals of the to Omen s metropolitan singles championship. I today defeat pistol owners liable to heavy fines last Day to secure licences heavy penalties can be imposed on the people who fail to renew their pistol licences in South Australia by january 1. At noon today there were ? Azout 2.000 licences outstanding. Any person carrying a pistol without a permit at night is liable to a Fine of �100 and other severe fines Are exacted for hav ing Possession of unlicensed firearms. The South australian pistol Law is strict almost harsh and the most searching enquiries Are made into the character of people applying for a licence. If the applicant is a resident of this state he must give All the addresses at which he has been living during the pre visions 10 year.

Must give reasons if the applicant for a licence is from another state the police there Are requested to Forward particulars of his character. In addition the applicant must satisfy the police As to his reasons for requiring a pistol. Many householders Are not aware that they can be fined for having pistols in their Homes even if they Are packed away and never used unless they have a licence for them. There is a fee of 2/6 for new licences or for renewals and separate per mits must be held where More than one firearm is owned by the applicant. A special staff has been employed at police Headquarters for the past few weeks to Cope with the work of renewing licences.
