The Valour of Ignorance [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 18 June 1921
Tie Vfltirof ifmiiife 'Abo.': It is really surprising the number of people who don't seem to know anything at all about Austra lia, more particularly Western Aus tralia. Holidays come and go. local celebrations are held, yet wi.h per haps the exception of Anzac Day, no eifort has been made to acquaint the present and rising generations of the significance of certain anniversaries. Now. in connection with the last holi day which occurred and .which was celebrated last Monday week, there appears to be a good deal &i ignor ance and misapprehension. The writer was foolish enough to ask those of the circle of friend? with whom he is acquainted with 'what ail the holiday was about.' In 100 per cent- of cases, they all thought that the holiday was purely the pub lic celebration in honour of King George's birthday, which, according to our State law is celebrated on the Monday following the event. As a matter of fact it was noth ing of the sort, for Monday's, cele bration really repr...
pope's Worries THE PLAINT OF THE LOCO MEN [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 18 June 1921
KtlC'S WWI ICS THE PLAINT OF THE LOCO. We sincerely sympathise with Commissioner Pope. , these days. Faced with a demand on the part of 1057 but of a total payroll of 8500 employees, the question of granting additional pay, holidays, and priyi eges to the one section necessarily means t&at every empiyee or. tne Railway Department will forthwith want the Commissioner 'to come to light' with the other unions in the same manner, should additional pay, etc., be granted. The Commission er is faced with a responsibility not shared* by even Cabinet Ministers. And the poor old public looks on be wildered at a mass or vorbiage - by an able secretary, too fed up of the whole business to care a rap — forget- ting all the time that thev. one and all, have to foot the bill. The local Arbitration Court i-* busy these days wrestling with the union whose case is 'put' bv Mr. Kenneally.

What About it? [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 18 June 1921
What Aftrat it? 'Firefly'-. God bless -#ie Pr — (funny, isn't it, when I think of S'will Lath., Mayor of Perth, I al-^ ways confuse him with the -Prince, or the King, or somebody. The mere .mention of S'will inspires one to great things. Maybe this screed is not great, but perchance it will rouse some people to a sense of their responsibilities regarding that awful eyesore where once stood! the Eco nomic Stores— before a providential fire swept them away, over-priced stocks and all. The present condition of the ruins is nothing short of a public dis grace. Xot only the hideouslv un kempt condition oi the ruins them selves, but the unsightly rags hung round it, flaunting like dirty linen in a Divorce Court. The municipal by-laws forbid calico signs; thy question is. what's the Pri ? there we go again — I mean, S'will going to do about i? Is he going to move a resolution proposing legal action against himself in that Council, and send his sergeant-at-arms, or what ever they call him. ...
DINKUM AUSTRALIAN IS There a Censor Ship? WHO SAID NOT? [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 18 June 1921
mmlum Ai;iirmAi-ji%it K There ? wiser . sMpf WHO SAID NOT? How many are there in this coun munity who can give an intelligent, answer to the question when asked: Is there a film censorship in Austra lia*? To our mind only a fraction of the people could answer the ques- tion at all. We have no doubt whatever in stating, it will interest our wide circle of readers to learn, that there Is a film censorship in Australia, that there is more than one l-odr of cen sors, that where the imported film first meets its judge is tinder Com monwealth Custosm aegis in Syd ney, N.S.W , and that in the event of that Censor's opinion being in any way doubtful the film is retin ned and mailed to Melbourne for su pervision by a Federal Board .of Censors. It will come as a great surprise a some when we state that not only are films censored both at Sydney and at Melbourne, but that that censorship is extremely rigorous, that scores and hundreds of films, screened for the censors to pass judg ment upon, ...

The Silesian Situation. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 18 June 1921
The Silesian Situation. LONDON, July 18.— The situation between Silesia and Poland is still of tempt has been made to settle the the utmost gravity, and so far no at question of where the boundary be tween the two belligerent poples shall be. The despotic attempt of the German General, Hoenters, to tyran nise over both races is regarded by each as insufferable, and has so ac eenuated the trouble that both Bri tain and France have demanded his withdraway by the German Govern ment. LONDON, Later. — The German Go vernment, in a new and characteris tic 'Note'' to the Allies, complains pitifully that the International Com mission has failed to do anything to right the Silesian situation, and states that the six weeks' control by the Polish loader. Korfant.ys. over 1'PIk.t Silesia., lias inflicted 'consider- able hardship on the pro-German pop ulation there.
"Irene" [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 18 June 1921
'Irene ?? During the last few weeks we have said extravagant things about the lat est J. C. ^Williamson production to come West. Now that we have seen the show we feel Quite justified. It is a show that seems far different from other shows we have seen here of late. 'Tis true, Irene Maurice,' th« leading lady, is not Dorothy Smith, but she's an excellent substitute. Her mannerisms are dainty, yet quaint, and in addition she possesses a very sweet voice. Around Irene winds the whole story. How she transforms irum a uowery maiaen to a societv idol, provides the necessary material for some amusing- incidents. Robert Jowett as the male lead makes a big- impression; he has a fine appear ance, and dispenses his lines in a breezj' manner. Chester Clute is a 'lighter vein' merchant, of a class, on his own, his actions and his patter hand over a big- parcel ot the laughs of the show. Thomas Pauncefootc emerges from the production with full honours, as also do Peggy Malo ney and Marion Earle....

Cables THE COAL STRIKE. GRAVE CRISIS ARISES. BALLOT FAVOURS CONTINUED STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 18 June 1921
Cobles. THE COAL~~STRIKE. GRAVE CRISIS ARISES. BALLOT FAVOURS CONTINUED STRIKE. LONDON, ? June 18th.— (Official). The miners' baUot has resulted in a large majority for the continuance of the strike. The decision to continue tbe strike was anticipated from the early Welsh and Lancashire returns. The Govern ment immediately embarked upon pre parations for a life and death struggle. What amounts practically to a mobil isation is in progress. The Press are sparing of comment, and it is realised that the situation is now more grave than at any time since the commence ment of the strike. It is freely rumoured that any act of aggression by the Government will be immediately countered by drastic steps on the part of the Labour or ganisations. In spite of the fiasco in which the Triple Alliances threats ended in the early stages ot the strug gle, it is now realised that a vastly changed attitude is abroad, and a call for a general strike would probably meet with a widespread response. Of th...
