Adelaide Sport (Newspaper) - June 20, 1924, Adelaide, South AustraliaNational Library of Australia buying a car. A Miffins had decided to buy ? motor ear. I Only need one occasionally he explained and a second hand of ought to last me for years. I ought to get one for about �150." so a Miffins spent hours wandering around garages peering learn edly into the innards of a shines and poking worn tyres with Friendly fingers. He did t know a thing about motors actually but put Over a heavy Bluff and agents talked on for hours about the differential and Magneto and other strange gadgets. Then friends descended on him and told stories of the awful Fate which overcame anyone who bought a second hand car. They convinced him it was a bad business proposition. Well said a Miffins ill get a new Ford they Are Only �205." at the Ford shop he saw a de luxe Ford Only about another �40and argued that it was Worth it. Well said the Ever present Friend if you Are going to pay that you May As Well pay another �15 and get a a Miffins inspected the chess and enthused about them. Now that you Are so High argued his friends you May As Well look at the other cars. Here s a Nice one now Only �390." he found himself looking interest edly at a 12-Cylinder Packard. At the critical moment a gush ing Young thing tripped into a Miffins s office and sold him a 1/ ticket in a Raffe for a Ford. This la do me said a Miffins. A curtain Raiser. She was a peach " who would Grace any Beach and she looked what she want a flapper he was a Chap with Money Mayhap. But without any brains in his Napper. He took her to Dine and he offered her wine speculating on futures inanely she took it amiss when he wanted a kiss she dare not she said very plainly. Too Public in Here my Flat s very near let s go there it won t take a minute thinking All on the level i he agreed the poor Devil a taxi was hailed they net in it. In her neat Little Flat then he Hung up his hat and indulged in some nervous caressing. A noise on the Stair my husband he s there of hide for your hiding is pressing too late he was held while he helplessly yelled and he then very Plain ully pleaded i m up for the show won t you please let me go said she twas All rights that s what she did he looked up it s dad " this was shocking and said his Surprise was too sudden to smother. My son i ill explain but you must t remain. Go Home in the train and for heaven s Sake Don t Tell your Mother a recreation for the aged. " punch s playful advice to those about to marry dont has been forgotten in Australia. A commentator on the Federal statistician s latest figures joyously records that a husband of s3 is shown As wedded to a woman of 24 a Bride of 83 was led to the altar by a Man of 44 and a Man Over 95 years of age took for his Bride a w Tife whose age was Given at 28." Here there is cause for rejoicing. The Bride of 83 no doubt realised that no up to Date girl wastes her time blushing in the these figures Are decidedly encouraging to those who imagined that the marriage rate was on the decline. The Man Over 95 years As he is called if venturesome let us Hope has found that happiness which he certainly merits. Australia offers Many opportunities in every phase of human Endeavor. The latest is the attractions of the marriage Market. The Rush of aged pioneers to link up their destinies with sprightly Maidens is a new feature of the Commonwealth s social life and one that will meet with the Hearty approval of the Community. There should be no excuse now with these Bright examples to guide them for crusty old bachelors to continue paying their penalties to the taxation commissioners. The distinction. The Bishop was Busy scribbling at his latest work on the higher criticism when the nurse brought in his Little daughter whom she accused of calling aunt Emily t damned please father the child sobbed id did t Call her that i Only called her a Well my child replied the Biship it was very wrong of you to Call her that but since you did not use the reprehensible adjective i will Overlook it. That is and he turned to his work. The youngster however remained weeping bitterly. I said you might go said the Bishop without looking up. At length the child gasped Between sobs i Only wanted to Tell you father that although i Only called aunt Emily a fool i i did Call aunt Ann a damned " yes. Yes murmured his lordship Abstractedly. A have often made that precise distinction myself Between your two aunts. Now run Public servants civil and uncivil. Short and Snappy Demeanour of civil servants towards those that keep them in their billets is the usual thing. Taxpayers Are so used to this sort of treatment that anything else comes As a pleasant Surprise. There Are some notable to 1 3. T0 general Rule Adelaide s Tramway men Are not holy courteous and obliging the attendants at the Public Library and Library Are Ever ready to serve the Public to the Best of their ability and the officers of the Federal statistician s and state statist s departments Are models of urbanity. Here and there in Public offices there Are officials who Are not too Busy picking their Teeth or discussing next saturday s certs either the gee gees or the toe Allers to answer politely Public requests for information. The trouble is that such officials Are so rare they do not materially Avreet the prevailing tone of boredom and of handedness characterising the Public service As a whole. Under an efficient Public service administration zealous officers whose attitude towards the Public is courteous and becoming would be considered when promotions Are made. At present the bad stupid old Rule of seniority and the corrupting influence of favouritism alone count. Merit is rarely if Ever taken into account and rewarded. A time will come though when the Public will demand a change for the better. Then the uncivil pub i lie servant will make Way for the efficient courteous officer. Black versus White. America with one coloured face for every ten of the population never gets far away from the negro problem. Lately the attorney general of Oklahoma in speaking of a riot said that it was caused by an impudent be i Gro an hysterical girl and a yellow apart from the Kun Siux Kian operations there have been racial riots burning of Black citizens and denial of constitutional rights to persons solely on the ground of color. Mob Rule is a terrible thing. Regardless of consequences a mob is stirred by reckless agitators to deeds of violence. Their lust for blood and revenge is greater than their desire for right and Justice. President Harding said of racial riots Many communities Are living Over a veritable Volcano of race hatred. Such riots usually do not come singly but in Bunches. This is due to the fac that the things that cause race riots As a Rule Are general and not local. Among the Many american problems to be solved the coloured question takes High probably one reason for the increasing hatred of White America towards Black Brothers is envy of the Prosperity of the negro. According to the negro year Book negroes in the United states have acquired 22,000,000 acres of land As working Farmers and not As speculators. They own 600,000 Homes and 45,000 Chur Ches and operate 78 Banks 100 insurance companies besides 70, 000 business enterprises of various kinds with a capital of �30 000,000. The wealthier negroes become the More jealous they become of their White competitors. Yet there Are some foolish people who wish to create a color problem in Australia hardly changed. It May interest old fight fans to know that Bosker Bill Squires the Man who once fought for a world s championship has hardly j changed since in appearance though he has been out of the game for a Long time. There s a touch of Grey in his hair that s All the difference i can said i Jim Flett the Sydney head weight. Bill is still a Fine looking Man and always keeps himself in Good condition. He is working in the mines at Kerri Kerri Flett sparred with Squires the week before he went to Melbourne and he had Many a Chat with the old time Champion heavyweight.
