SHOWERS DEVELOPING The Divisional Meteorologist re ported last nigh"t:-iOn "Monday morn ing an energetic low pressure system was located between Eucla and Esper ance. and had been accompanied in Western Australia by fairly extensive rams of a light to moderate character. Conditions orer mast of South Aus tralia during the day were fine and chiefly dear, with moderate to warm temperatures, some of the maximum readings being 78 degrees at Mount Gambler, 80.6 at Adelaide, 90 at Port Augusta, and 95 degrees at Cook. By TODAY'S FORECAST Fine and nm, with freshen ing northerly winds, but a cod, sfloslhr. soothed^ duuigv soon extending over the western dis tricts and becoming general. the afternoon skies were overcast up to Foarier's Bay. and light rain with the passing of the low pressure centre had reached Cook to the far north west. A moderately intense anti- Cyclone was centred around Tasmania -with a southward dip in its isobars over New South Wales. This checked a -ar distant northerly drift into South Australia, so that the eastern aspect is not ii3al for good rains in this State. The western anticyclone, how e>er 5s moving in steadily, accom panied by fresh to strong southerlies. so that showers should develop fairly generally on Tuesday.

A BRIGHT NOTE ?The "Optimist," the official organ of the Tubercular Soldiers' Aid Society, serves at least two good purposes. Although members of toe society are victims of the most grim of wi? penal ties of war, they contrive to see the Best in life. Then* characteristic cheerfulness and courage are reflected in "The Optimist," and its circulation furthers the effort to lighten the burden of suffering. By the sale of the periodical the public is enabled to give modest financial help to the society. The March, number, now on sale at sixpence, is full of informative articles -of interest to members aud the general public. Activities at -ATignnff^hiTin Soste]^ wbich ~fs known throughout the Commonwealth, are Illustrated ?T?-rt described, and there are a number "of humorous contribu tions. Copies are available at the T.frnMpgs soldiers' Kiosk, G.P.O. SUCCESSFUL SOUTH AUSTRALIAN AUTHOR The one-act play, "Wax Museum." which will be the feature of the Aus tralia-wide broadcast from Station SCL on Thursday, is the first locally written play to be accorded the honor of being broadcast in the five States. The play, which is a thriller, is the work of Mr. Max Afford, a young Ade laide writer. It was selected from many others far the Australia-wide re lay. The scene of the play is laid in a deserted waxworks, where two young people seek shelter from the storm. "This type of play is de finitely suited for broadcasting work," said the manager of SCL (Mr. C- M. HosHng). "The limiting of the cast to two people does not halt the dra matic action, while it prevents the confusion of voices, as would hapnen if the cast were large. It also lends itself well to expressive sound effects, which add to the dramatic effect." Fererishness of Infants.—From half to one teaspoonful of "Magnos" in a little milk will relieve the feverishness in children cutting their teeth. ??
