FOOD RESTRICTIONS (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 25 August 1939
.FOOD RESTRICTIONS (To the Editor) Sir,-Your correspondent, Modern Economist is to be congratulated for so concisely expressing this evidence of modernity: destruction of food when millions are undergoing various stages of slow' starvation.. Such facts as stated are too terrible a condemnation of our inhuman eco nomic system, and are unlikely to be repeated on such a scale in the near future. The methed which is now be coming popular is that of Irestriction. By this means the anti-social nature. q our methods of distribution is less obvious. Even Australia, a land in its, early stages of .development, is now undergoing a struggle to resist, this latest phase of civilisation. I refer, of course, to the proposed wheat re strictions, If successful, we may con fidently expect such newspaper head ings as that quoted by the Dean of Canter'bury from the English press: Poland's Harvest Too Good; Severe Blow to Recovery. Unfortunately, no mention is made of what the underfed peasantry of Pol...

FORCED UNEMPLOYMENT. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 25 August 1939
: FORCED. UNEMPLOYMENT. (To the Editor.) Sir,-1 thought I had exploded the suggestion that "Socialismi is merely . sentimentntal dream." Most of us find that our dreams vanish into nothing ness when we wake, but your" corre spondent, Australian Youth, has dis .o, ered that Russian Socialism, whilst being "merely a sentimental dream," .uaterialises in (using his own words) the building of railways, canals. etc., whilst making tremendous strides ..c'th materially and educationally.". Your readers may gainl heart from '.his "discovery". that the fairy wand Mich hovered over them as they `slelt 'will some ,day "deliver tile nnods." When one considers the ban placed ln the free dissemination of literature in our own country surely we should be relucttint to condemni others for the suippression of free thought. considering that Russia is the most lemocratic country in the world, it is hard to understand how anyone could believe that there is a favored minor Ity as suggested by your corres...

Spotlight on the Semi-Final S"Critic". (Frankston) writes:T THE 685 people who paid £37/2/1.tC .watch the first:se mi-final at' the Frankston Park saw ah exhibitiodnbf football much below the.usual stand ard of finals in the Peninsula League. A gusty cross wind early Jin, the game which increased in force in the latter 'stages,' with showers of rain, inhde c6nditions difficult; but was not wholly responsible. for the dull and scrambling nature of the play. There is no doubt that better football has been seen in the junior division of the League this year. Hastings-Tyabb supporters saw few of their team reveal anything like their true form. In fact the Kirton Medal runner-up for 1939 (Bert Wilson) and Ray Denhhm, one of the most youthful and promising players in the senior grade were the only ones who impresesd consistently. The Blues showed flashes of system on two occasions in the last quarter when Mornington were too far ahead for them to overtake. It was the brand of football tha...
