Adelaide Mail (Newspaper) - November 7, 1936, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia Haig in 1 Scotland s 1 oldest i whisky Clipper tobacco Large pings for pipe smokers. Light and dark Price and Quality suits everybody. Sole agents Cornell limited Adelaide plan for Early election unpopular opposition grows in All parties real reason lacking Melbourne saturday. Feeling is growing among members of All political part ies and in Public organisations that there is no reason Able excuse for taking the House of representatives to an election in March. The following Points Are emphasised 1 the life of the present parliament does not end until Decem Ber and for no reason other than political the proposal Aims to Cut this by nine months. 2 the Senate cannot be taken to the country earlier than 12 months before retiring senators vacate their seats. The next retiring Batch of senators will not end their term until june 30, 1938 therefore the country will be faced with two Federal polls within 15 months. Into the opposing Camp today came the important and influential wheat growers federation of Australia which sees grave objections to the unnecessary linking of party problems with the Clear Cut marketing referendum Issue. Wheat growers opposed the Federal president of the wheat growers federation or. H. L. Simp son said wheat growers have been the plaything of politics for years. A costly Appeal on the marketing Issue was made to the privy Council when the subject could have been dealt with by the Commonwealth parliament re fusing the right of Appeal in such cases. The latest move by members of the government to mix up a non party problem of marketing in a general election indicates to the producers of butter wheat and dried fruits that their rights Are of secondary consideration to that of members who Are desirous of having an Extension of political life before carrying out their previous contract opposition to he plans for an Early election was expressed also by or. Mcclelland c.p., Vic on his arrival from Canberra today. Cloud referendum or. Mcclelland said that the holding of a general election would Cloud the referendum Issue that of restoring the marketing Powers of the common wealth parliament or. Makin lab. . Said that labor foresaw the possibility of an Early election six or eight weeks ago and planned accordingly. The labor organisation would not be caught unawares. Labor had the Happy facility erf being Able to reconcile its differences when it came to an Appeal to the people. It would be most unwarrantable to Send one half of parliament to the country when no constitutional crisis exists said or. Makin. It would defeat the ? principles of responsible democratic government. An Early election might result in a government being returned to Power with a hostile Senate to Block its pro Gress. In planning an Early election the government no doubt feels that it can not justify the expense of a referendum without a More substantial reason lying behind it added or. Makin. I believe that at the next Imperial conference the government will be impelled to make compromises in connection with the resumption of Migra Tion and the revision of the Ottawa agreement. That will bring it into Disfavour Here. To overcome this possibility the government apparently considers that an Early election Appeal would relieve it of much concern Stormy scenes certain Canberra saturday. An Amaz ing situation has developed As a result of the premature disclosure of the United Australia party s proposal for a Rush Federal election Early in the new year. The prime minister or. Lyons is regarded As having practically committed himself to sending the House of a representatives to the country while almost unanimous opposition to this course is expressed by the parliamentary . And also by the bulk of the country party. The majority of Cabinet members profess almost Complete ignorance of an election move. Stormy scenes Are certain when the . Meets next week in Canberra to discuss the matter and vigorous and bitter denunciation of the poll is cer Tain. General opinion in the . Room and also among the country party members at the moment is strongly opposed to an election with the referendum.

Stanley Donald Russack to or. Yuri oot a was killed instantly his neck being broken and his Skull fractured. Another boy Frank Lehmann. 16, sustained a probable fracture of the r Skull.

The party was returning to Nuri oot a from a Centenary dance at Angas ton. Lehmann was taken from the scene of the Accident to the Annaston District Hospital. The Coroner or. E. R. Feist. . Opened an inquest into rus sack s death. After evidence of identification it was adjourned to no vember 19. Message received from the Pone a archbishop Killian received a cablegram from his holiness Pope Pius Al today which he read at the opening of the Catholic women s league conference this afternoon. It stated on the occasion of Adelaide s Centenary the holy father blesses the work of the Catholic women s league in South Australia and in parts paternal Benediction on the president and members or. Butler criticised vote loan Melbourne. Saturday. To was revealed after the loan Council sittings had concluded today that Tasmania s application for an extra �211.000 was rejected on the dissenting vote of the pre Mier of South Australia or. Butler after the meeting had decided that a unanimous vote would be required. An increase of one million in West Australia s allocation was approved. I am disappointed that my state s modest request was refused said the treasurer of Tasmania or. Dwyer Gray. It is remarkable that the voice of the Premier of one of the weaker states All of which Are in serious financial trouble should be raised in opposition. I. Regret that party politics were not entirely absent from loan Council discussions. As the total of loan Money involved exceeded 21 millions it did not seem too much to ask for an extra �211,000. All the adjustments suggested by the states were conceded with the exception of those of Tasmania. Question not settled unless a very Large loan is agreed to in february or March next a severe Cut in loan expenditure is inevitable. The Issue Between the Bank Board and Public policy will then have to be settled one Way or another in accepting the Bank Board s Deci Sion to underwrite a loan of not More than =p7f. Minn the inn Neil ? yesterday s meeting did so with the i feeling that the big fight on the ques i lion of credit restriction and Accomma i nation for the full works programme at the governments had merely been postponed to the May meeting of the coun cil and not settled. Governmental activities will go ahead much As outlined moderated perhaps Only to the extent of the apprehension by individual governments that the re quests they will make in May will be Only partially realised. The loan will Bear interest at 3% per cent., and the Issue Price will be �97/10/, representing a return to the investor of �3/19/4 per cent allocation to states the Cash to be raised was allocated As follows Commonwealth �599,000 new South Wales �2,000,000 Victoria �1,010,000 Queensland �1,471,000 South Australia �830,000 Western Australia �1,260,000 Tasmania. �330.000. Total. �7,500,000. An amount of �5.000.000 from the june loan of �9,000,000 was allocated to carry on the programme and the �7,500.000 now to be raised brings the total to �12.500.000. Leaving �9.950.000 still to be found. It was argued that tvs would be too Large an amount to leave to a loan in june and the Council considered whether it should hold an additional meeting in february to consider a loan before the Normal one in june. No decision was reached however As the governments will decide later on whether a meeting should be convened. May Settle in Sydney Miriam Hyde there is a Possi Busty that Adelaide May shortly lose Miriam Hyde the Brilliant Young pianist and com Daser who returned to Australia about 10 months ago after three years study in London under the overseas elder scholarship. For nine months after her return miss Hyde remained in Adelaide. She gave a recital at the town Hall and another Over the air but generally she was disappointed at the Small amount of musical work offering Here and the rare opportunities to hear major works. Three weeks ago she went to Syd Ney. Already she has Given two Broad cast recitals one a National relay and has heard some of her orchestral com positions performed by the . Sym phony orchestra. On tuesday this orchestra will give a National relay of miss Hyde s symphonic overture which she has not yet heard. Miss Hyde is so impressed with the greater opportunities offering in Sydney that she stated in a letter to her family this week that she was seriously considering making her Home there. Miriam will return to Adelaide Early in december for a Holiday her Mother said today. Perhaps something will turn up in the meantime that will keep her Here. If not. I think it Likely she will go to Sydney Cost of Wool worries Japan Tokio. Saturday. It is understood that the Wool Industry association s president or. Kawanishi has urged the ministry of Commerce and Industry to instruct the South african Export Guild to increase the compensation to importers for the Price they arc pay ing for South african Wool. Other Wise it is feared the mounting Cost of South african Wool May threaten the government s policy regarding Australia. Or. Mannix attacks communism lesson from Spain a Strong attack on common so was made by Melbourne s picturesque archbishop or. Mannix in Adelaide this afternoon. J or. Mannix was making his first a j Yearance at a function connected with the All australian roman Catholic education Congress when he attended the opening session of the conference of the Catholic women s league. It had been mentioned by the coun Tess de hem Tinne who has come to the conference with the Sanction of the Pope that his holiness had told her that there were two things she must stress during her trip to Australia j they were the danger of communism ? and the importance of the Correct Defi j nation of Catholic action. I after having assured the countess that there were bodies in Australia j actively propagating the cause of Catholic action under which Lay people i collaborated with the Hierarchy to introduce the Catholic Point of View into All phases of life. Or. Mannix made a round condemnation of communism. J Spain mentioned there is an urgent need he declared even for women to set their faces strongly against this communism which is spreading in Europe and has set foot in Australia. I those who have followed what has taken place and is still taking place in Spain Realise what communists have done not Only to Bishops and priests but nuns Liv ing and dead. The horror of it is or. Mannix continued that the women and girls of Spain were in the forefront of those people who committed the outrages. We in Australia must set our faces against things like these in Australia we might think that it would be impossible for scenes Simi Lar to the Spanish outrages to occur. Possibly 10 years ago there were spaniards who thought the same thing about their country. We must be fore warned and forearmed rousing reception 2/liixnix. Received a rousing reception from the women among them were interstate delegates to the con Ference who crowded the Hall. He spoke on behalf of the several Arch Bishops and Bishops who were present at the gathering. The archbishop of Adelaide or. Killian declared the conference open.

There is a Dis Tinct possibility that King Edward will visit Australia next year or in 1938. Perhaps flying part of the Way and thus breaking All precedent. This is based on an announcement by the Canadian prime minister or. Mackenzie King that his majesty would visit Canada soon after his Coro nation coupled with the King s own announcement that he hoped to visit India next year. Speculation has been aroused on the possibility of a round of Royal Tours embracing Australia and other dominions. The daily mail anticipates a fresh j chapter in Imperial relations As a re sult of or. Mackenzie King s announce ment which those who Are closely in touch with Dominion affairs believe re Veals part of a plan for a series of Dominion Tours. Will Fly in the East officials considering the possibilities Are not losing sight of the fact that aviation has shortened the time Essen tial for overseas visits. Although the Battle Cruiser repulse is being provisionally held ready for the King s visit to India his majesty is certain to travel largely by air in the East. He May even Fly on part of the outward journey. Concerning the practicability of visits to Australasia and South Africa the Factor largely governing a decision is the amount of time each year which the King could devote to such Tours. The most suitable season in both cases would be the English Winter when the King s absence would Best fit in with state duties. Another fact that is being kept in View is that new South Wales has made representations for a Royal visit in 1938 for the 150th anniversary of the foun j Dation of Australia.

All night the Roar of Cannon has resounded in Madrid and the final rebel assault which will probably be headed by 8,000 moors is expected hourly. Reliable information has been received by diplomatic circles in London that the Spanish government has left Madrid for Valencia leaving the War commissar in charge of the capital s defences. It is Felt that this action will facilitate the capture of the City with a mini mum of bloodshed. With the fall of the capital imminent the governments of Europe Are faced with the problem of deciding their at a Titue to Gen. Franco s government when he takes control. I it is reported from Berlin that Ger j Many Italy Austria Hungary Portu i Gal. And certain South american re j Public already have intimated their intention of recognising Gen. Franco s government immediately he enters Madrid. The proclamation Gen. Franco plans to Issue when he captures Madrid is said to have been communicated to the German government. According to a Paris message the French and British governments have agree not to recognise Gen. Franco i the Paris correspondent of the news chronicle says that the attitude j of the French government is that it cannot recognise the new Spanish government before new elections have occurred and a new parliament has been sanctioned by the people. With tense faces citizens Are Pothering at Street Corners speak ing in whispers and wondering what Gran events the Day will bring. Men with picks and shovels Are still Busy throwing up defences at every Street near the Centre of Madrid. The fact that the rebels Are pressing their attack on the South Side of the capital Only and Are not making attempts to Cut off communications with the East coast suggests that they Hope the government will finally with draw thus avoiding the horror of fire and destruction in the City. However the prime minister Senor Caballero is reported to have told a Friend i will Stop them yet but i will shoot myself if they break in. Under no circumstances will i aban Don Madrid alive opinion is divided in Madrid whether heavy Street fighting will occur. It is a difficult City to defend As it has too Many entrances and thousands of refugees from the Battle front Are pouring in adding to the confusion. Italian Soldier s allegations reports from the rebel Side say that their troops have penetrated to Casa de Campo. A big Park inside the City. They found All the surrounding houses deserted and flying White flags. Strong forces of rebels have moved up from get afe to participate in the final assault. The rebel leaders believe that a fifth column of fascist sympathisers in Madrid with whom they Are in touch by wireless Are preparing an insurrection. The British embassy has arranged for the Protection of 200 britishers still in the capital and is stocking Emer gency food supplies for a fortnight. Grave and detailed charges against Italy of sending men and guns to help the rebels Are made by the Spanish government. It has issued a statement made by an italian artillerymen Luigi Corsi Sil Berta who was captured on november 1, near Parla by loyalist troops. Siliberto says that neither he nor his companions went to Spain voluntarily. But were compelled to serve. Commendatore Luigi Aisne commanding the 10th artillery corps paraded the unit in Rome and selected 50 soldiers for an expedition to Spain.
