CORRESPONDENCE (To the Editor.) DRINK—THE GREATEST OF ALL CURSES. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916
(To the Editor.) BRINK—THE GREATEST OF ALL CURSES. Sir,—The country has liad its full -of the drinkers through this harvest. At present I am working two thresh ing machines, with 22 men each, and through this heat wave the drinkers only work a. few hours and days. Ife seems that, though the men are a real good, class,' I he drink weakens 'them in srttfii an extent th*f they are al;n- st useless. B-«ys of 17 years an easily work alongside them without' any trouble. Many employers have had their te,ams id.U fcr Christmas week, whi'e the nieii w.&lt;?re drinking-. | Drink is not a temptation born with ur, but only an acquired htfbifc. JPnthers and mothers, is it not worth the fight of oat- lives to try.and pro tect our dear children by blotting out, like Russia, this deadly eurser. Yonrs, etc., E. S. TVVlGGr, Cowra.

This from fcbe President of the Shire and President of the. Shire.Recruiting Association, strikes one as utterly incompatible with bin position in the above named offices.

So we have ths spectacle of the Shiie Council unanimously refusing to subscribe one penny towards a. route march from iis very own dis trict. , Let us gra...
