ROUND THE BEEHIVE Courts - and Courts [Newspaper Article] — News — 31 July 1923

ROUND TiE IBEEHIVE Courts- and Courts "The courts are too soft," says a tennis message. The office boy is inspired: I know not if my Muse should snort Or force a laugh, or sigh, or cry, Whether to hold her head ,loft And sob a yarn, or score a bye; For I've just read in print, "The court is soft." In days of old this scribbling bard Knew law and order off by rote He knew that legal brains were keen, That jurors faked a yawnming vote; And thoulght that every court was hard with spleen. He knew of squash courts, five courts, law, t And tennis courts, and Es-courts, too: He knewe what costs were, andt his thoughts Were neck-to-knee in legal dew, He loved to argue and to jaw On Torts.. But, hush-a-by, my courting cap Woon't fit a head that's large with thoughts, It's now and evemore well-doffed, I've no time now for any courts; For courts-so says the latest yap Are soft. / ;r * *

HONOR THE DEAD [Newspaper Article] — News — 31 July 1923

HONOR THE DEAD Nothing could be more admirable than the spirit of Violet Day cele brated in Adelaide on Sunday. There was a reverence and a devotion which must have appealed to the souls of all men and women. Only good can come from such demonstrations, and he would be a strangely constituted person who could find fault with them. They help to keep warmly alive the memory of the men who died that we might live and retain our liberties. At the same time there are other and perhaps more real ways in which we may honor our noble dead. Those who fought shoulder to shoulder with the departed and shared their every sacrifice, except the supreme one, are with us to-day. To remember and treat generously the returned soldiers and sailors of every rank is to pay the most sincere homage to their comrades who are no more. If we forget the living, or withhold from them the deepest sympathy and the broadest consideration, then everything else we do or say in re spect to the dead is a mockery. Aus...

One old man, unshaven) and in tattered clothes, shivering vio lently as he drew a torn, thin ov'er-I ccat about him. OppoIsite him was a cowed-looking woman, her eyes full ofI appeal, for she had a family at home, and her husband had disappeared. The other two were returned...

EXPELLED German Oddfellows' Appeal DECISION AGAINST THEM [Newspaper Article] — News — 31 July 1923

EXPELLED German Oddfellows' Appeal DECISION AGAINST THEM The Loyal Teutonia Lodge (German section) of the Independent Order of Oddfellows has failed in its efforts to free itself from the prohibition passed against it during the war. The war time regulations prohibited the meeting of enemy subjects in Australia, and an Order in Council was passed in 1917 forbidding the members of the Teutonia Lodge to meet. .Members obeyed the prohibition, but the Grand Lodge subsequently took ad vantage of the long interval during which the Teutonia Lodge had not met by expelling it on the grounds of a violation of the rules. On an appeal coming before him the Registrar of Friendly Societies decided that the lodge had ceased to exist. Mr. Justice Mann gave judgment yes terday in an appeal which had been brought by the lodge against the de cision of the Registrar. The lodge haa taken a large number of grounds for its appeal, most of them relating to the validity of the order for its expulsion. His H...
