V I % From Near and Far £ ♦- »♦♦♦%♦%♦*♦ *—*++*--+**+*?«***** »♦« [Items of interest to returned soldiers and their friends will be gladly received for this page.] Mr. and Mrs. Edmund G.

We should like to know: [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

We should like to know : Who are those people referred to by the Premier as having expressed them selves in favor of the leasehold system, though previously advocates of freehold?' Whether Mr. Theodore is one of the converts? Whether the person who questioned Lieut.-Col. Plane's right to be regarded as a 'man' is now satisfied that he is as much a hero as any Australian soldier who set foot on Gallipoli? Whether those people who were re jected in the early stages of the war owing to minor defects would have the same chance of being thrown aside if they were to present themsellves for examination now? Whether Mr. Ryan is sincere in his desire to assist returned soldiers into Government positions? -, Whether Mr. Fihelly will accept the challenge of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots National Political League to re sign his seat .and contest it against a returned man? Whether the itilley electors will follow 911 1 Major Fry's suggestion and give the returned soldiers a. seat unopposed?...

THE QUESTION OF REJECTS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

THE QUESTJON OF REJECTS. There are many men to-day wearing the official rejected volunteer badge who are fit to be on active service. In the early stages of the war thousands of men suffering from minor defects which pre cluded them from taking an active part in the Great War. The standard at that _ i time was very high, and a man needed to be absolutely fit to stand a chance of selection. Owing to that high standard and the rush of eligible men to join the colors, the percentage of rejected men was inordinately high. Every man who failed to pass the doctor was provided with a small metal badge proclaiming his ineligibility for service. Since then the question of securing sufficient re cruits to reinforce our boys at the front has transcended every other considera tion, and the medical standard of fitness has been considerably lowered — so much so that at least forty per cent of those previously adjudged unfit would now be classed as men likely to make good sol diers. In spite of th...

A Weekly Letter to Billjim. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

A Weekly Letter to Billjim. Dear Soldier Boy, — Your letters this week made me say over to myself those words of 'Ginger Mick' (you won't think me unduly per sonal if I repeat them?) 'So I'm a little Corperil, wiv pretties on me arm, But yeh'd never guess it for to see me now, ' For me valet he's been careless, an' me trooso's come to 'arm, An' me pants wants creasing badly, I'll allow; But to see me squad in action is a cure for sandy blight — They are shy on table manners, but they've notions how to fight. MAJOR J. P. FRY, Returned Soldier, who has been noimi nated by the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League for the Senate. 'Ho, the sky's as blue as blazes, an' the sun is seining. still, An' the dicky-bird is perching on the twig, An' the game is pop-pop-popping from the trenches on the hill, An' I'm looking bonny in me non-com.'s rig; And when yer writing me again (don't think I want to skite), But don't fergit the 'CorpeHl,' an' mind yeh spells it right.'

Hansen for the Lilley. A SPLENDID RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

Hansen for the Lilley. A SPLENDID RECORD. Sergeant-Major A. H. Hansen has been selected by the executive of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League to contest the plebiscite for the Lilley seat. Our prospective candidate is a good platform man, and his know ledge of politics is not confined to Queensland, or even Australia. Despite his name, which some allege is a dis advantage, he is a Britisher to the back bone, as his record proves, and if he is selected to contest the Lilley seat- lie1 will have as opponent Dr. Jensen, a man whose record as a patriot cannot com pare with Hansen's. Both names are Scandinavian.1, Sergeant-Major Hansen was born in England 46 years ago. His father, a Scandinavian, arrived in Eng land at the age of 18, and married a Scotch woman, so that our - candidate has as much British as foreign blood in his veins. In 1891 he resigned his posi tion as a bank clerk and joined the British regular army, and was. for some years in India, where ...

Unprotected Australia. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

Unprotected Australia. The cable flashed from Britain to Aus tralia the news that the Anglo-Indian forces had occupied Baghdad, the city of the Caliphs. It was the finest bit of news Australians had heard since the commencement of the war* and one would have expected Queen-street to be filled with a tumult of cheering, flags flying* from every flagpole in the city, and the clangour of a hundred bell-peals filling the air. What happened? There were half a. dozen people ' standing in front of the 'Daily Mail' board when the glad tidings appeared in heavy type, there were thousands of people in the street, yet this most significant piece of news since war broke out was regarded by the average citizen as something quite ordinary. There were no cheers, no flags on public buildings, to commemorate the downfall of Baghdad. Neither the Go vernment nor the people seemed to think it worthy of - more than passing notice. It is a mere incident in a series of cam paigns which have long since bec...

A Study in Evolution. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

A Study in Evolution. 'The low organisations,' says Emer son, 'are simplest — a mere mouth, a jelly, or a straight worm.' If it were not . for that, we would feel, inclined to ad dress an open letter to Senator Stewart, but to suggest a sword and buckler, or even a more modern suit of khaki to an organism that is only mouth-far along the road of evolution that leads to per fect manhood would be futile; the mouth wouldn't know what you meant. Or to suggest to the jelly that the correct way to face the world is heels together, bead thrown well back, and a straight look ahead would perhaps worry the jeily creature, and might even , make it melt a little. On the other hand, it might not; neither would it serve any useful pur pose to address a worm, or even a whole cluster of worms, on the beauties of the sky or the inspiration of the stars. ' Tjie worm can only understand the things; pertaining to its natural food and. habita tion. If these products of parti-evolution would realise that...

League's Political Campaign. FUNDS URGENTLY REQUIRED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

League's Political Campaign. FUNDS URGENTLY REQUIRED. The near approach of the Federal general elections renders it imperative that the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League should don their armor and sally forth to the fray, i Unfortunately, portion of the armor, in | the shape of finance, is not on the pre mises. The money necessary to fight each individual election is limited to £100 per man, but there is a tremendous ex pense involved in the upkeep of the League's establishment. The 'National Leader' is a payable proposition, and helps towards the upkeep of the League's offices, payment of officials, &c., but it is not sufficient. Money is urgently re quired to fight the forthcoming campaign in the interests of returned soldiers, and we therefore appeal to the generous heart of the general public to help the League win this big fight, the result of whicli will mean so much to the boys who fought for Australia. It must be remembered that the subscripti...

SOLDIERS' COMFORTS FUNDS. STANDING OF VOLUNTARY WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

SOLDIERS?' COMFORTS FUNDS. STANDING OF VOLUNTARY WORKERS. ! A weird person has been paying equally weird visits to various 'com- forts' centres with weird threats of weird petitions that will compel all these work ers to be paid 'the award.' If he wants a really appreciative audience he should wait until the boys come home, and then address them on the subject. He could ask for the payment to be made retro spectively if he liked. I am sure there would be an immediate 'award' for him and for whatever impossible union he represents. If it would be exactly what he desires we cannot say, but we are sure that it would be what he and his deserve.

Peace Wanted. TIRED OF THE WAR. SPEECH BY Dr. MANNIX. MELBOURNE, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

Peace Wanted. TIRED OF THE WAR. y SPEECH BY Dr. MANNIX. MELBOURNE, Monday. , Dr. Mannix yesterday formally opened the new school at St. Anthony's Churcii, Fairfield Bark. e , - Dr. Mannix, \Vho was received with prolonged cheers, said that they would all join with him in the desire that peace would soon come to the world. (Ap plause.) They were all getting weary of this long-drav^n-out tragedy of war. 1'f the views of those who went into it could be taken by a referendum now they would, most of them, he was sure, be in favor of an early peace. , (Applause.) The Pope gave wise advice at the com mencement. He pleaded with the nations to arrive at some basis that would not mean the tragic death for any one. of the contending parties', but his Holiness was scoffed at. The Russian revolution was an example to them of how the people in j Russia and elsewhere were getting tired, of the war. Of course they were told that it meant that Russia was ^oing to put increased energy into the war, b...

Returned Soldiers & Patriots' National Political League. BRANCH AT SANDGATE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

Returned Soldiers & Patriots' National Political League. BRANCH AT SANDGATE. A meeting of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League was held in the Town Hall, Sandgate. on Friday last, the object being the for mation of a Sandgate branch of the League. Aid. Bowser (Mayor of Sand gate) presided. Mr. Worley (chairman of the League executive^' said the same spirit which was operating against the securing of recruits was operating against returned soldiers to-day. The League was started because the returned soldiers recognised that they could not look to the general public for anything. The general public had done nothing for returned soldiers in the past, and they were going to look to themselves in future. There was a league of returned soldiers called the: R.S.A., and some of those present may have heard that there were differences between the two bodies. There was a diffrence of a sort, but it had been un duly magnified. If the people of Queens land knew ...

What will the Soldiers Have ? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

What will the Soldiers Have? The forthcoming Federal general elec tion will be . unique in at least one re spect. It will be the first election held in Australia in which returned soldiers will be selected as candidates by politi cal or other organisations established to protect the interests of returned soldiers. In Queensland the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League has nominated three returned soldiers for various seats — Major J. P. Fry for the Senate, Lieut.-Col. A. C. Plane for Bris bane, and Sergt.-Major A. H. Hansen for the Lilley. In Victoria Lieut.-Col. Bolton has been*chosen as the returned soldier candidate for the Senate. Old-timers may call to mind the fact that at the conclusion of . the American Civil War the returned soldiers dominated the legislature for at least two decades. That was at the conclusion of the war. What will happen in Australia when the war is over and a huge khaki-clad army, bronzed and fit, comes marching home can be imagined....

Fihelly's "Few Remarks." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

Fihelly's 'Few Remarks.' If any proof was wanting that the pre sent State Government has little time for returned soldiers, that proof was fur nished by Mr. J. Fihelly (Assistant Min ister for Justice) at a dinner on Friday night last, when he lashed out at Dr. Merrington. Mr. Fihelly has gained a great deal of cheap notoriety at the expense of the cause he embraces, and he has well earned the contempt of all loyalists in the community. He refrained from , treading on the corns of the re turned soldiers until Friday night, last, . when, for some totally unknown reason, he, after telling his audience that he was expected to say 'a few words,' launched out into a most savage and contemptible attack on a man who has worn the King's uniform with honor for eighteen months. Fihelly's disloyal utterances last year are too fresh in the public memory to need repeating, but they may not be remembered by his colleague^ in the House. Most of those who stood behind Fihelly then are only too read...
