Adelaide Mail (Newspaper) - January 21, 1933, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia Bridge Boom in England duplicate game popular now club Man Here England is due for at least a mild Boom in duplicate Brid Sre. A game that has found wide favor in America for several years. The Portland club has Given a Beautiful old Silver cud for a duplicate Bridge rom petition Between the principal clubs of 7.,-Ondon. The Competition is being played it present. It is the first Competition of its kind Leld in London but it is certain to be followed by others. This information was driven by major .1. H. Montagu who was Secretary of the Portland club for nearly 20 years and is Makine the round trip on the Cathay which reached Adelaide on the voyage from London today. Although it is now 10 years since he retired from the position he is still closely associated with the club. Explaining the general principle of Dup Licate Bridge. Or. Montagu said that two pairs from opposing teams dealt and played a hand in one room. Immediately they finished playing the same four hands were dealt to two other pairs in another loom. But the hands held by a and b in the first room would be dealt to g and d in the second room. Luck eliminated this did away with any element of Luck in the run of the cards As both teams had the same Opportunity to get the Best Cut of every hand. Contract Bridge holds Sway in London although auction is still played. When i was Here two rears ago. I said that before Long we would All be playing con tract because it was a better and More scientific game said major Montagu. Now auction As far As playing the came is concerned is dead at the port land club. Some of the extremely conservative clubs have stuck to auction but they Are in the minority. The Portland club is regarded As the jockey club of the card world in Lon Don said major Montagu. It is one of the oldest and most exclusive of men s clubs with its rooms in St. James Square. The club celebrated its Centenary five or fix years ago. Membership is limited to 300, but the total now is Little More than 100. The trying times Are affecting most of the City clubs. A team representing England s Best players has never been chosen. Teams termed English have played in inter National contests in America and else where but they were not representative of the country. Only a team chosen by the Portland club could be regarded As such rules revised major Montagu said that the recent re vision of the contract and auction rules had come As the result of diligent discus Sion and some prolonged conferences be tween the governing bodies of England America and France. The code of Bridge Laws agreed upon by these three countries could fairly be regarded As International. The Laws of the name major Montagu raid Are not designed to prevent Dis honorable practices. Consequently there Ere no penalties to cover intentional violations either of the Laws of the same or of the principles set of. Ostracism is the ultimate remedy where intentional offences Are repeated the revised contract rules halve brought All scoring figures to even tens. Previously a trick in no Trumps was Worth 35, but now the first third fifth and seventh tricks Are Worth 30 Points and the second fourth and sixth Are Worth 40 Points. This still gives a three trick contract game. I notices ? ? ? engagements Madden cos. The engagement is an or b. M. Bobbie Maddern second daughter of or. And his. M. U. Maddera.

W important Agenda for Federal Cabinet first 1933 meeting to outline its loan Council policy London Post a problem by our political correspondent Canberra. Saturday. On monday afternoon Federal ministers will As semble at the Commonwealth offices Melbourne for the first sittings of Cabinet in 1933. The Only Absentee is expected to be the minister of Commerce or. Stewart. He will be in the City but will be presiding Over an important meat conference. The prime minister or. Lyons will Welcome a newcomer to Federal Cabinet councils the newly appointed minister of customs or. Whit who will take his seat at the Cabinet table for the first time. The Agenda paper for Cabinet is a very Long and important one and there is no possibility that it can be disposed of before the loan Council meets. The loan Council will meet in the following week to consider ways to raise another six millions for works during the current financial year. Duties connected with the loan coun cil will make it impossible for the prune minister and the assistant treasurer senator Massy Greene to give time to any other matters and the Cabinet meet Ings to begin next monday will probably be adjourned on the following monday to Canberra for resumption there after the loan Council sittings have ended. According to present plans the prime minister will go into residence at the prime minister s Lodge Canberra about the Middle of february and the Cabinet meetings will probably be resumed in can Berra about that time. Resumption of session immediately it meets in Melbourne on monday Cabinet is expected to pass a Resolution of regret at the illness of the former minister of customs sir Henry guile Toad express Bope for his Early return to Active political life. The next business will be almost certainly the fixing of a Date for the resumption of the session. Opinions Are divided in political circles whether it will be pos sible for the ministry to adhere to its original intention of calling parliament to Gether Early in March. There is a possibility that parliament will not meet until after easter to give the new minister of customs every Opportunity to become familiar with the recent sweeping Tariff changes necessary to enable him to put through the House of representatives the most intricate and controversial Tariff Bill in Commonwealth his tory a but or. White said today that if the prime minister wanted parliament to meet before easter Early in March for instance he would be quite ready other questions which will come before Cabinet during the coming sitting Are loan Council policy. The common wealth government has to give the loan Council a Lead on the question of securing funds for the works programme for the current financial year Laid Down at pre Vious premiers conferences. The Only alternative to the Issue of Treasury Bills for an additional six Mil Lions is the floating of another internal loan at a higher interest rate. In View of the failure of the eight millions 3% per cent. Loan the second course is hardly practicable. Preparing Bills. This will be mainly a Tariff year and As parliament does not sit until after disaster. Little can be done by parliament in 1933 apart from the Tariff Bill and the debating of any con sequential legislation. The government has several measures left Over from last year including the amending arbitration Bill and another amendment of the crimes act. Or. Brace s future. Linked up with the question of or. Bruce s future plans is that of the appointment of a High commissioner. It is Clear that when he leave London or. Bruce must be replaced immediately either by another resident minister or by a High commissioner. Or. W. M. Hughes is an aspirant for the High commissioner ship and Many think this Post would be an admirable rounding off of a political career of unrivalled brilliance and activity. On the other hand there is a Strong feeling among certain ministers that sir Henry Gullett should be sent to London if his health sufficiently recovers during the next three months. If the hoped for improvement takes place sir Henry Gullett might be sent to London either As a minister without portfolio making his position identical with that of or. Bruce or As High commissioner. The minister of defence sir George Pearce would be another candidate for the High commissioner ship and would have definite support within the Cabinet. Or. Bruce s Early return to Australia would be welcomed by the government which is missing him sorely especially in the House but so Long As there is work of first class importance for him to do in London it May be considered necessary to keep him there for the next few months at any rate. Overseas interest. Or. Bruce e future plans Are linked up also with this ques Tion. The Cabinet will have before it almost immediately a report from or. Bruce on the prospects of additional con versions in London at lower interest rates. Unofficial advices indicate that these prospects Are not a avrame at present it if there is no More conversion work for the current financial year ending on june 30 it May be thought expedient to ask _ or. Bruce to return to Australia leaving future conversion operations either to a High commissioner or to another special Mission for late in 1933 or Early in 1934, headed this time perhaps by the prime minister. Local government in new Guinea. In View of the fact that Australia holds new Guinea under a league of nations Man Date special importance will attach to the new Era in new Guinea history which will be inaugurated this year and a Commonwealth minister will be sent to the territory to bring the new system into operation. A suggestion has been made that the prime minister should visit new Guinea in View of the International importance of the occasion but it would be scarcely practicable for the prime minister to be absent from the Commonwealth during a prolonged Tariff debate of first class importance and therefore the minister in charge of territories or. Marr will be selected by Cabinet to represent the Commonwealth at the inauguration of the new Guinea legislative an executive councils. There Are Many other important new Guinea questions awaiting the attention of the visiting minister. Air mail contracts. Preliminary drafts will probably fee available for Cabinet next week setting out the conditions of tender for the provision of an air service be tween Darwin and Singapore. Following upon the report of the inter departmental committee on air the Commonwealth government has announced that it will Call for tenders for the Singapore Darwin Sec Tion of the air mail service to be linked up with the Imperial airways of India. The Commonwealth policy provides also for subsidiary services including the East Ern trunk service from Darwin to Cootamundra and the Western trunk service from Darwin to Perth. Even if the draft of the proposed tenders of contracts k available at once for inspection by Cabi net some months May elapse before ten Ders can be invited. The question is still solely in a preliminary stage. Commonwealth ships. A report for Cabinet is expected from or. Bruce on Australia s Prospect of. Obtaining the balance of the Money due on the 6ale of the five Bay liners and the two Dale steamers to the White Star line for �1,900,000. The original Cost of these ships was �7,300,000. A balance of �1,320,000 of the principal is unpaid. The Commonwealth is one of the principal creditors of the line which has been in grave difficulties and is in arrears in its payments of tie instalments of principal since August 1931. According to the auditor general s re port the Only Security for the payments the Commonwealth possesses is the snipe themselves which Are very much of a liability. Newnes shale Oil deposits. Originally the offer of Treganowan & Charles was accepted by Cabinet for the development of these deposits but they failed to raise the necessary capital. Efforts made by the minister in charge of development senator Mclachlan to interest influential people in the develop ment of these shale Oil deposits by Pri vate Enterprise have now a reasonable Prospect of Success and a definite pro position is to be considered by Cabinet at once.

Gandhi s picket ers closed our mis Sion school at Azam Gary for three weeks he said Rue fully. They Lay outside prone of the ground and anyone who wished to enter had to walk Over their bodies. That is peaceful picketing. Gandhi is frankly out to save hinduism. He told me so when be visited the Mission with miss Slade shortly before he left for England. He wore his usual costume Loincloth and piece of Homespun thrown round Hie shoulders. Always in Homespun he always wears Homespun he believes that no clothes should be bought but that the Indian should grow his own Cotton and weave it himself. He spoke excellent English to me.

As it is the government 16 allowing him to manoeuvre All his Little Platis from prison now although he is not supposed to touch on politics.

With the Prospect of better values from now on the year s sales May return More than �2,300,000, which will be a higher total than that realised last season.

As stocks of raw materials have become depleted below Normal middlemen Are replenishing supplies. France and Ger Many have bought much More Wool Dur ing the past 12 months and appear Likely to continue keen purchasers. There has been Strong criticism in All sections of the Trada of the suggestion made in the report of the Commonwealth Wool enquiry committee that prices should be regulated by a form of Market control. There is a belief that any inter Terence with Normal Selling would Benefit substitute fishing plans for .

Asau indication of the extent to which trawling was done abroad. Capt Blaikie said that from Aberdeen alone 400 Traw lers operated and there were Large cum Bers operating from other coast towns.

Blaikie had had Many years experience in the scottish trawling Industry and had travelled extensively along the australian coastline. The proposal of the Commonwealth government to help to develop the Industry by placing on trawlers experts who would make a systematic examination of conditions and the prospects of the fish ing grounds would be welcomed by the company which capt. Blaikie hoped would be formed. Offer to Phelps must be High London. Saturday.
