Kublai dec Adelaide faces milk famine next week conference Only Hope now will Victoria enter Price War tomorrow morning and on monday Adelaide householders May expect to receive milk As usual but it is doubtful whether the customary Supply will be available on tuesday and following Days. This is the latest position in the Price dispute Between the , dairymen s association and the Adelaide wholesale distributors. The organised producers have stopped supplies and the wholesalers must work on milk in store until that is exhausted and on the limited quantities still available daily from Independent Dairy Farmers. Suggestions now being made for a conference Between producers and distributors offer the Only immediate Hope of saving the City from a milk famine. From Melbourne come conflicting reports about the likelihood of emergency action by victorian milk producers to Helo South Australia. Twe Secretary of the victorian dairymen s association or. W. Herbertson says that the state s producers will not interfere. On the other hand the chairman of the milk Board or. A. E. Ken Dall declares that if necessary supplies will be sent to Adelaide by Road transport. For the time being at least members of the dairymen s association Are stand ing firm by their resolve not to Send whole milk to Adelaide unless the wholesale distributors Grant the desired increase stated to be from the present rate of 6d. To 7y4d. A gallon. From to Day the disaffected Farmers Are separating their milk. Arrangements have been made with butter factories to take the Cream. The skim milk is in some cases being used to feed Stock and in others is being thrown away. Factories operated by firms which Deal in whole milk also Are refused supplies by the dairymen. The result was that some country milk pro ducts factories had to cease operations today. Aware of the seriousness of the position representatives of the wholesalers met the minister of agriculture or. Blesing today when the question of holding a con Ference Between producers and distributors was men toned or. Bles ing who had planned to go away for the week end arranged to remain in Adelaide. The situation is crave one leading wholesaler admitted. We can provide the toll metropolitan Supply tomorrow and probably on monday also. After that Adelaide will be practically ont of milk he protested against the extent of the producers demands. They were asking from the distributors the mar Ket rate for butterfat which was 1/ plus a Bonus of 9d. A la. Be said. That is a total of 1/9. Which on 4 per cent butterfat milk equals 8.67d. A gallon not ?y4d., he declared. It is too much to ask us to pay while Price cutting in the retail Trade is in turn reducing the retail Vendor s capacity to pay. As an illustration of the amount of milk held in store the Norwood distributing depot of the South austra Lian Farmers Union has nearly 1.000 Gallons in its freezers. Normally this would be three Days Supply As the average daily Quantity disposed of from Norwood is 360 Gallons. The Farmers Union has another distributing depot at Prospect and the main depot at mile end. There Are two classes of retail milk Vendor in Adelaide those who sell milk from their own cows and those who buy All or most of their Supply from the distributors. Herd owners in the metropolitan area will of course be Able to continue serving their customers. A possibility mentioned today was that in the event of a pro longed Scarcity the Price of Avail Able milk a feb be sharply in creased to the consumer or any other buyer. From Victoria a message today states that the ques Tion whether victorian producers would step in to relieve an acute milk shortage Here has become a serious problem in Melbourne. The Secretary of the victorian Dairy men s association declared today that in no circumstances would the victorian producers interfere for two reasons 1 that it would prejudice the producers Case in South Australia -2 that it might react on the victorian producers and reduce the Price there the chairman of the milk Board however said that if it were Neces sary supplies won id be sent from the Western District by Road trans port. He explained that this area did not sent much milk to Melbourne and that with Good organisation some of the Supply now sent to factories could be easily diverted to Adelaide. Both or. Kendall and or. Herbert con declared emphatically that so far Adelaide Consumers had not appealed to either of their organisations. Yesterday evening and this morning a mail correspondent travelled along the Ponde and co Wirra irrigation settlements with a factory milk lorry. Yesterday the settlers assisted the Driver to Load the cans with milk. This morning they gave him Only empty cans belonging to the factory. Dairy men Are separating their own milk. Ome of them bring ing into commis Sion. Separators which have not been in service for years., 1 they have Little or no use for the separated milk and Are either pouring it into pits specially constructed for the purpose on the ground or taking it far away from their Homes into the paddocks. The usual Busy Early morning scenes at Murray River landings and lorry depots were not in evidence alone the lower River Dairying centres this morn ing. A Complete Survey of All centres revealed that not a drop of milk was picked up. With the exception of 177 Gallons which were taken from Monteith by special arrangement for approved hospitals and Public institutions under contract with the Supply and tender Board. A largely attended meeting at Jer Vois last night resolved As a recommendation for the Central authorities of the association that pending Settle ment of the dispute any member or non member of the association Supply ing milk to wholesale buyers be banned from the benefits of any Price increase. It is understood that members of special vigilance committees checked up on railway traffic throughout last night and this morning and up to the time of arrival of the Melbourne express reported that it did not appear that any consignment of milk had passed through. Their curiosity on this Point was aroused by current state ments that supplies were being obtained from Victoria. Or. B. S. Wila. Vre sudent of the sort a Traufl dairymen Asio Eumon. R. La.

He ran to the spot and saw a shark worrying an object about 20 Yards from the water s Edge. He did not actually see anyone in the water but there was a Black object which looked like a bather and the shark seemed to be holding something be Neath the water. Another strange feature of the occurrence is that although the shark was close to the Shore. Bedford saw no blood on the water afterwards.

If they have their Way Europe will inevitably fall into the most justified and terrible War humanity has Ever seen. The abyssinian question was a colonial one far away and confined so it would have remained. Italy bound herself to respect British Imperial interests and declared herself ready to make agreement in an atmosphere of loyalty and Harmony. Sacred obligation Mussolini himself took a sacred obligation to prevent the colonial conflict assuming character and extending to a european conflict. No person in Pood Faith can therefore accuse Italy of any responsibility in the War that is now menacing. Italy wants Security in Africa and peace in Europe but to say that sanctions mean peace for Europe is a criminal confusion of the Issue. If these sanctions Are extended and Europe matches towards War the youth of Europe must know right away where the responsibility lies.
