  • Contains a brief reference to G. B. Lancaster (q.v.) which notes that 'Australians certainly don't believe in giving their authors undue publicity. It was left to a New York paper to devote a whole page of eulogy to Miss Lancaster's wonderful book on the early pastoral life of Tasmania which she has so aptly named Pageant. Nothing has been heard of it in Melbourne beyond the usual review.' (content appears in the Melbourne 'Personal and Social' column)
  • Includes 'Scholarship' (by N. B.), a brief reference that reports on a literary survey: 'What makes people read books? A librarian of an American college set out to get a definite answer to the question. He asked 478 men and women the question, "How did you select the last book you read?"' The results of the survey are listed with 12 responses and related respondent percentages. (content appears in the topical monthly column, 'Contributed Comments')
