(Published by Arrangement.) UNDERMINING COLLEGE MORALITY [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 1 October 1925

(Published by Arrangement.) UNDERMINING COLLEGE MORALITY The Rev. Ernest W. Mandeville, the news editor of the American reli gious paper, "The Churchman," and special correspondent of the "Out look," New York, after a study of Prohibition on both sides of the At lantic,- has 'come to the conclusion that the enforcement of the Prohibi tion law is a farce. He informed a "Daily Express" (London) representative that there is more drinking at the college dances by both boys and girls than there was before Prohibition. "Many bootleggers," he said, "make it their entire business to supply col lege boys with liquor. Drug stores surrounding the college grounds quite often do an enormous business in selling synthetic gin-grain alcohol plus juniper berries-to the college 'boys. "Some of the boys themselves make a great deal of money by buying the liquor in large quantities and selling it to their college mates, and the drinking among young people has be come most alarming, and is consid ered a...

FOOTBALL BRAIDWOOD FEDERALS v. TABLELAND [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 1 October 1925

FOOTBALL BRAIDWOOD FEDERALS . v. TABLELAND After many ineffectual attempts to secure a match the local Federals succeeded in inducing the Quean beyan men to bring a team along on Sunday (says the Braidwood "Re view"). And a solid combination it proved, too. Three of the pick of the Federal Rovers, three Queanbeyan Warrigals, Bennett, and six of the local Blues, formed a team that was generally expected to walk over the light Reds. But things didn't happen that way, and the public was treated to a great exhibition of clever foot ball which was always exciting and bristling with thrilling movements. The Tableland team comprised: Full-back, McKay; three-quarters, Horne, Lupton, Woods and Young; halves, Simms, Bennett; forwards Cram, Clarke, Torpy, Brown, Forbutt and Sullivan. Mr. J. Shumack was referee. At half-time the scores were: Reds 13, Tableland 3. When the final whistle sounded the scores were Reds 24, Tableland 16. It was a great game, in which the Reds covered themselves with ...

(Published by Arrangement.) PROHIBITION'S ALLIES [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 October 1925

S(Published by Arrangement.) PROHIBITION'S ALLIES "The practical result of laws which lack the social will," writes Richard Washburn Child in the "Saturday Post," Philadelphia, "is that such laws, if the experience of the world is worth anything, never can be enforced, and directly stimulates lawbreaking as to all laws. They drag into the field of law enforce ment a vast and disgusting hypocrisy so that we are forced to see men who break them behind closed doors -judges, legislators and even the highest executives, as I have seen myself--go forth in fear and deceit to orate about law .enforcement. "Reluctantly enough," said one police chief to me, 'I can see where we are heading for. I am a prohi bitionist myself; but of all the organ ised criminal business, the bootleg and blackmail organisations are destined t develop the most and have the most money. I prophesy that in five years it will be an or ganisation such as this country has never seen.' " 4 Alexander McLeod was found dead...
