Man and master are In agrt ment .that H1tler must be finished off. . In 'those circumstances, it ii a pity that already some business people are making hay while thl sun shines, and prices have been b Imped up 80 per. cent. almost over. night, threatening to disrupt that feelina of enthusiastic anrid .. The B3ritish Government made its I attitude on this matter very clear. One of the first regulations put through wais to fix all prices as at September 1. A niove 'which his earned the Chamberlain' government widespread commendation, for after Iall, it' is not playing the game, if men go an'd fight for the flag Whilst .their 'lelatives remain at home to be robbed by rripacious and pseudo re spectable patriotic merchants.

Australia Day A.N.A. Opinion (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 8 September 1939
Australia Day A oOo A.N.A. Opinion (To the Editor) Sir,--My attention has beenu directed to the strong appeal made throigh your journal, for a more fitting cele bration of Australia's national day. I fully endorse the sentiment expres sed. The A.N.A. has strenuously fought, for many years, to secure a. recogni tion, particuliarly within Australia, of Australia Day. Peculiarly enough, splendid recognition is observed in England,- America, and even. in, re mote centres, where a' few Australians are iable to foregather. The A.N.A's. first great fight was to secure recognition under Arbitration Court and Wages Board determina tions. Unfortunately, our efforts have not been entirely successful, but they are being strenuously persisted with. A statutory 'holiday, properly recog nised, as a right to Australian work ing people, is a'first essential. * iThe second' essential'was to secure uniform' recognition by, the Common wealth and' all States. The 'day w??a previously known by. varying t...
Felix Holt Says [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 8 September 1939
Felix Holt Says THAT the guards placed on public buildings recently bring back memories of the guard! at the Commonwealth Offices during the Great war and the Prime Minister of the day, William Morris Hughes. It is a great pity that the song, The Umbrella Man, was not composed in those days. It co'uld easily hiave been his theme song-that is, if anyone was game to tell him about it. Most public servants in that building in those far-off days would almost have preferred to be asked to interview: the Kaiser as' to be ordered .to go see Billy. In many ways, Hitler is a novice compared to the Billy of that time. Billy hated deputations--he wan ted actions, not words-and dodged, 'them as much as possible. The unemployed' even in those days were vexatious, and 'had a nasty habit' of arriving .en masse at Billy's front door-that is, the door of the Commonwealth Offices-thousands of them. -not front doors-unemployed. It was most disconcerting to. Billy, who was much-more interested in sinki...

AWARD FOR WORKERS. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 8 September 1939
AWARD FOR WORKERS. (To the Editor) Sir,-It was with indignation that I read Cr Heath's remarks in. an issue of the Standard in opposition to. the proposed full-time work scheme of the unemployed. Cr Heath's reason for opposition is that orchard workers would leave their positions en masse to join the ranks of the unemployed if they could be assured of o'btaining award rates under the scheme. As a conscien'tious member of the Frank ston branch of the "A.L.P., it has al ways annoyed me that a country of mainly primary productivity should suffer under administration wvhich. pl vides, no rural workers' award. It has been truly stated that the man on the land is the backbone of the country. Without the product of his skill and sweat 'we starve. The question, then, must arise: Who is this man on the land who makes possible our daily bread, our national defence; our finance, our overseas trade--in short, our very, existence? Cr Heath named him. He is'the man to whom it is impossible to pay...

Heath), nouncement o?n ?riday night to the Shire of Frankston and Hastings Coun cil that he had joined the United Country Party. He said he had found himself in a position where he could no longer follow the leadership of Sir Stanley Argyle, and claimed that the no-confidence motion submitted by his former leader against the Dun stan Government was unwarranted and of a ridiculous nature and had compelled him (Mr Kirton) to vote with the Government. Although he had. burnt his boats by doing so, he had voted conscientiously. The Dun stan Government had accomplish?d excellerit work and was the most progressive he had known in his career. In future he hoped to vbte for the benefit of all people as he was a 'member to represent . every section of the community.

STATE ACTIVITIES THE RAILWAYS ARE NOT PROFITABLE. AND THERE ARE OTHERS. THIS BAR TO SOCIAL LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 8 September 1939
STATE ACTIVITIES THE RAILWAYS ARE NOT PROFITABLE. AND THERE ARE OTHERS. TH'IS BAR TO SOCIAL LEGISLA .. TION. f In the I egislative Council last week, Hoin. J. A. Kennedy, M.L.C., told the House that the State made perfect roads and contributed to, loss n, the railways. Mr. Kennedy, said-It is obvious to those who are accustomed to make estimates that a year ,of drought, during which hundreds of., thousands 'of tons of yvheat and other primary products are not available for car riage, on the railways, is not a suit able :year on .which -to base. estimates for' future finance,. I am not: en deavouring to protect the Railways Commissioners, or- their method of running the railways, but I say that in estimating, one would take- a normal year, not an abnormal year. The deficit wag mainly brought about because of the reduction in the amount of wheat carried. The freight was not available to the railways, and working expenses can not be reduced in proportion to' re ductionrs in revenue. Pe...
