A REMINDER. The writs for the. Federal election are issued on Monday next. After that day you cannot get on the roll. Do it now! Apply to the National Political Council or the Returned Soldiers- and Patriots' National Political League. Pte. Jim Walker writes from an Aus tralian hospital in England: — 'I saw a few of our old 9th in the distance, but couldn't speak to any of them, as I was in -the train on the ; way to hospital. I was admitted the anniversary of the day I left Australia. This is an Australian hospital, and I am being treated well. It is only the matter of a few weeks, and I shall be 'up and at 'em' again. I am a lucky boy to be lying in this lovely bed to-night. 'It's just like bein' at hame.' I haven't done badly. It took them a long time to get me.

RED CROSS TOY INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

RED CROSS TOY INDUSTRY. , For several months the Red Cross toy industry in -Sydney has been an acteom plished fact, and it is good news to hear that the Queensland branch of the Red Cross Society have also taken up the work here, and that in a week or two the new workshop at the base hospital will be in working order. It is now two or three months since a few returned men at the base started making toys. At Christmas time quite a number of big rag dolls, rabbits, kan garoos, &c., were turned out by these amateur workers. There is quite a won derful doll, almost as big as a baby, and dressed as a Red Cross nurse, in the possession of Mrs. Hawthorne, the, youth ful wife of Dr. Hawthorne, which was a Christmas box from the toy-makers. The railway ward was the first scene of operations, and. later the tools were transferred to the outdoor theatre on the lawn. Now, however, this open-air theatre, which since the erection of the fine' new recreation room has not been used, is bein...

Baghdad! THE CITY OF BAZAARS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

Baghdad ! THE CITY OF BAZAARS. The capture of Baghdad by the British Mesopotamia expedition is an event of such military importance that a short description of the famous old city will he welcomed by our readers. After taking in the Great and the Lit tle Zab from the Kurdistan Mountains, 250 miles below Mozue, the Tigris flows by Baghdad, set in green gardens of the date-palm, which has now supplanted the - olive and other plants of higher ground, as Arabs have become the leading ele ment of the population. Surrounded by the graves of dead cities and by dried-up channels that once made its plain widely fertile, Baghdad itself, with over 100,000 inhabitants, is still a notable city, the capital of Lower Mesopotamia, though far fallen from its splendor in the days of 'Good Haroun Alraschid,' who, by the way, was not such an admirable mon arch at we see him represented in fic tion, his fame being darkly stained by cruelty to Giafar, the companion of his nocturnal rauables, and to the r...

"I WON'T WORKS." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

'I WON'T WORKS.' 7 Letters continue to arrive from the front condemning the inaction of the ; 'official' Labor crew in the matter of securing recruits. Arthur Griffiths, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. N. Griffiths, Glenrosa road, Red Hill, tells what he thinks of the obstructionist individuals: — 'We will be in the trenches again shortly, and it will be a pretty hard time by the way things are at present. / 1 wonder when . these 'I Won't Works' will get sense? They would come to their senses very quick if they were over here for a while.' The military . representative who said that people should be cremated in war t time probably took a leaf out of the Prussian book. The Huns have cremated thousands of bodies. But why cremate only in war time? The method is hygienic and expeditious, and should be adopted in peace time as well as war .time.

UNIONISTS IN THE ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

UNIONISTS IN THE ARMY. In the Federal Senate on March 16 Senator Grant declared that 80 per cent of the soldiers at the front belonged to Labor unions. How does Senator Grant i know that? is the question which at once ! suggests itself. Has he had a census taken of the men who went abroad with the A.I.F., or is he merely making a wild guess? If it is correct that the Austra lian Army contains 80 per cent of union ists, a statement that no one who has been in the army will be prepared to admit, how is it that the 'official' Labor party, which, if we mistake not, is the anti-conscription party, refused to help their fellow-unionists by ensuring ade quate reinforcements? Why, if the army is a union army, did 'Queensland unionists refuse to help returned soldiers recently? Eighty per cent of the Australian Army would mean 240,000 men, leaving a mere-, handful of 60,000 non-unionists, which is manifestly absurd. If it was correct, then all this paper has to say about the slackers who won...

What the Men in the Trenches Think. A PICTURE OF THE SOLDIER'S MIND. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

What the Men in the Trenches Think. A PICTURE OF THE SOLDIER'S MIND. The men in the trenches are making history, and it would be interesting to know what they think of the( history they are shaping. Tommy Atkins is a some what inarticulate character; but a writer in the 'Nation,' who has studied the men in the trenches at close hand, and knows them intimately, undertakes to tell what they think about the war. '(1) Our soldiers,' he says, 'do not discuss the causes of the war or its issues^ They speak of concrete things which concern a their daily lives. (2) Neither have they any heroes, political or military. (3) The great spiritual bond in the army is that of comradeship. The loss of a 'pal' is the greatest sorrow a soldier .suffers, and may deeply affect his spirits and character. (4) They do not sing patriotic songs, but mostly comic rhymes of the hour. '(5) The level of personal bravery is extremely high; indifference under fire is usual; soldiers in great danger will go on shav...

The Way of the War. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

The Way of the War. First the fall of Baghdad; then the great anti-German revolution in Russia; now the capture of Bapaume and Peronne. The news this week has been wonderfully inspiring, as the great events chronicled during the brief period surely foreshadow the imminent downfall of Prussian militarism. Since the days when the Germans entered the lists against Russia and rendered negatory her victories over the Austrians, the Bear has had little opportunity to per form his famous steamroller act. In fact, save for the great victory which Brussi loff gained on the Austrian front, the role of Russia has been that of a passive resister. Russia's effort, notwithstand ing her tremendous resources in men, has been spasmodic. The shadow of the Hun has. always hung over the Russian court and the' Russian Government. The Russian system of government, in which the reins were tight held in the grasp of a handful of autocrats, proved easy of manipulation to the Germans, whose sys tem is practi...

On the Acquiring of Knowledge. "WHO FIHED THAT FLAH?" [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 March 1917

Onf-theJAcquiring of Know ledge. 'WHO FIHED THAT FLAH?' Shorty was six-foot-one in liis socks, and the thing that Shorty was afraid of I hadn't been found. His officers at times ' regretted this fact, especially the younger ones. He had never missed a war anywhere since he was of fighting age, and the attitude lie adopted towards young but well-meaning subs, was that of an elderly uncle bored to death, but trying to receive in kindly spirit their well-meant efforts on his behalf: Not that Shorty was ever disrespectful, but he could make 'Yes, Sir' sound so much like 'God help you, lad' that more than one fledging lieutenant had been known to lose nerve completely and wonder what bloomer he had committed. But there was one type that reduced Shorty almost to tears, 5ind that was the young officer who knew everything writ ten in 'King's Regs,' nearly all the busi ness of the Army, and is soon going to know the rest, and who not only 'sits with the gods in their councils sublime, and vi...
