THE CLUB HAIL BAG I RlDE TO SCHOOL DESCRIBED Dear "Mopoke"—I am going to tell you of one of my rides to school In the morning. I have to go about two miles I rode along for a while listening to the hum of the bike tyres on the hard road. I was going up a small hill. On every side of the road was high grass and many prickles. Overhead flew a mob of shell parrots (what "pret ty birds they are). When I reached | the top of the hill, on one side was a high cliff and on tlje other a large paddock of grass. In front on the right side of the road were some trees; what a, lot of rabbits were running Dver the road. I now saw a large pum tree over the side of the cliff. Stop; I had come to a fence. I lifted my bike over. Along the winding track on the left side was a large pit. A little further I was at school. I am in grade five at school. My little sister Pearl is a real scamp. She runs away with our things and throws them away, and we often find her at the tomatoes. Of course they are nice...

WILL SHORTSIGHTEDNESS PREVAIL? [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 21 January 1943
WILL SHORTSIGHTED-i NESS PREVAIL? Whereas only a few weeks ago the Federal authorities were quite definite that a munitions plant would be set up in a certain River town, now, for a reason which has not been fully ex plained, there' seems to be an extreme danger of the proposal being dropped. If this turns out to be the case, it will be a triumph of shortsightedness in more ways than one. Though less than half the required number of operatives were secured— or actually signed the contract forms —it was obvious that many more might reasonably be expected both from within the very limited ai'ea which was canvassed and from the populous districts surrounding. This aspect was clearly set before the responsible officer in Adelaide when the signatures were forwarded down. In any case, the drain of women power to the city has been so great that it would be surprising if more than one or two rural centres could be found in the State among the half dozen required to provide a better response...
