BLIND WORKERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
BLIND WORKERS. TO THE EDITOB OP THE COURIER-MAIL. Sir,-As the Industrial Institution for the Blind is the one place in Queens- land where those afflicted with blind- ness can receive training and employ- ment, it is only natural that the wel- fare and progress of that institution is a matter of great concern to its af- flicted employees. The persistent agitation for better conditions by the blind workers was not bom of an un- reasonable discontent, suspicion, and ingratitude. The last Home Secretary, Mr. Peterson, from the time when he first took office, realised that some- thing was wrong with the management of the institution. He, therefore, gave to the workers the privilege of meet- ing him once every three months in the presence of the manager of the institution that they might lay before him any complaints. Finally, Mr. Peterson recommended that a thorough enquiry should be held into the work- ings of the institution. Before that could be done, however, the Govern- ment was def...

EATING EMUS. MEAT FOR RUSSIA. "VERY OPTIMISTIC" PLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
EATING EMUS. MEAT FOR RUSSIA. 'VERY OPTIMISTIC" PLAN. If this is a supplementary feature of the Soviet's five-year plan, one can- not feel very optimistic as to the future of Russia. This comment was made by the Director of the Queensland Museum (Mr. H. A. Longman), on a cable which appeared in The Courier Mail, with reference to a scheme for importing Australian emus to provide meat for the Russians. "I have always regarded emu flesh as food for blackfellows, and not for whites. Certainly I have never heard of any white settler having shot the emu for food. It might, however, be resorted to as an emergency diet," he added. Authorities differ a good deal as to the merits of emu flesh as food. Allan Cunningham had occasion to sample it, and his estimate of It was rather fav- ourable. Its flesh resembles coarse beef, both in appearance and taste, and is good and sweet eating, the explorer declared. Mention is made in Gould's Birds of Australia of the fact that emu flesh proved of the ...
