Or government tourist Bureau no lottery for hospitals Royal commission report said to be unfavourable unjustified on evidence submitted after an inquiry lasting More than six months the Royal commission on lotteries will it is under stood report against the establishment of a lottery in South Australia to finance hospitals. On the Broad principles involved the members of r the commission Are believed to be unanimous. T their report has been drafted Al though it has yet to be anally approved members of the commission appear to have made up their minds. After a careful analysis of the opera Jugi tons of lotteries in other states that g the inauguration of a lottery in this % state to assist hospitals is not justified Ait on the evidence submitted to them. � the report will contain a consider if Able amount of statistical information. R which Snow being tabulated. When the commission reassembles to l Revi a the draft it is just possible the t it May decide to seek some additional evidence on specific phases to is considered most improbable however that any fresh information will be forthcoming to warrant a change of 3ttitude on i the main finding. I terms of reference � the commission comprises messes. H % b. Piper chairman Cudmore f. . . i Ben. My. Beerworth. . it was appointed Early in january. F the terms of reference were to inquire into and report upon the question whether it is desirable &. To authorise by Law the holding of w lotteries for the purpose of raising f funds to assist in the financing of hospitals and other charitable institution when the commission was const. & tuned the Premier or. Butler Saio a that the government had an open mind on the question and would be guided largely by the commission s findings. K. It is now regarded As significant that in an address at the annual Branch h social of the Liberal and country be league at Balaklava last week the pre up Mier expressed the Hope that a More of satisfactory method of raising finance for hospitals would be decided upon g and referred to the West australian � system under which a special Hospital a tax of old. In the �1 is imposed. I. He suggested that a similar Small rate y in South Australia would go a Long Way towards the reduction of the Bur ? Den on country people in the maintenance of hospitals. This seemed to indicate that he was a not very confident of a favourable report f by the lotteries commission. In the course of its investigations the commission visited new South Wales. Queensland Western Australia and Tasmania and heard much evidence about the operations and effects of lot teries in those states. Keep away from my baby says Sally a Chimpanzee at the Lon Don zoo As she puts a protective Arm round her youngest june. A Happy picture taken when the new arrival at the zoo was at Home to visitors for the first time last month. Empire air mail picture analysis of children s taste in films London saturday. Or. William fair acting manager of the British film Institute has compiled an Analy Sis of the juvenile taste in films. He has discovered that children Dre Fer those that feature a men anti gangster police and dislike the Mae West and Greta Garbo types because they have not met anyone like them they Are unable to imagine that such people really exist. Children he has found hate horror films of the Frankenstein Type with fighting sudden noise and close ups of killing. Youngsters like to be excited not frightened. Adventure stories built round air pilots and sailors greatly interest them but they dislike dialogue and intricate lots and Are not fond of musical films with interrupting action and with songs dances and stories. The headmaster of Battersea school after a similar investigation has reached the same conclusion. He found that children liked adventure and Happy endings with right triumphing Over wrong but love scenes made them laugh and Scenic Beauty left them cold. . Heat wave death Roll now reaches 375 Chicago. Saturday. The toll of death from America s record breaking heat wave and drought had mounted by last night to 375. The blistering heat has not abated from the Mississippi to the Atlantic coast. Suffering has increased in the Dako As. Civic prayers for rain have been offered at Mitchell North Dakota.

Frederick Armstrong who is in charge of the Julio no pumping station and his wife both had their skulls fractured when heir car fell 20 it. Into a Creek near Cootamundra today. Mrs. Armstrong is in a critical condition. It is believed that As a result of these inquiries the members of the commis Sion feel that a lottery venture is an insecure foundation on which to base a system of financing hospitals and charities. One Point that will probably be stressed in the report is that the amount of Money which eventually goes to the hospitals and other Charit Able causes for which lotteries Are conducted in new South Wales Queensland and Western Australia is Small compared with the total amount that the Public invests in the lotteries. Another striking fact is that according to the evidence obtained on the spot the amount of Money subscribed by South australian residents to lotteries in the other states in very much smaller than Many people Here imagine it to be. It is anticipated that the report will contain some interesting revelations about the ramifications of the lotteries conducted by other states their economic effects and their effects on Hospital finance. For that reason the completed report should be an important and valuable document and should attract Australia wide attention. Lord Sempill flies Back to Start again London. Saturday. Lord Sempill.
