They are em ployed at Swallow .and Ariell's, at Port Melbourne, and it is not so much of their generosity in the way of time and labour that this mention is .being, made, but of the excellence of the Work itself. When the Lady Mayoress first made her appeal for the benefit of Australian soldiers go ing to active service,. the girls, aided by gifts of material"'from the mem hers of the firm, made 453 cardigan jackets. They are now busy at work with a second contribution of 600 jackets, which will be ready by Christmas.

LABOR PARTY AND PRESS [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 28 November 1914
LABOR PARTY AND PRESS Consideration to the motion tab led by Mr. M. Couniff, secretary to the local Labor League, that' the Press should be admitted to the meetings of the branch, formed the chief item of discussion at the meet ing on Monday last in the Town Hall supper room. The exclusion of the Press was agreed to at a meeting five weeks ago, the subject being brought under notice of the branch by the Central Executive. Appa rently it was in a spirit of loyalty to the Executive that the motion of exclusion was carried, but a large proportion of- members fail to see the reason or wisdom of their action. Consequently it was resolved to in vite the secretary and president of the central executive down to their next meeting so that some explana tions may be given the branch for the course it has adopted at the Execu tive's instigation.
