BAD LANGUAGE FAR TOO PREVALENT. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 21 January 1929

BAD LANGUAGE FAB TOO PREVALENT. Sir — Looking over the pages of a recent issue of the local paper I oVj served a very appropriate comment by a writer over 'the name 'Non Shear er.' As one who has been a resident or the district for nearly 23 years I have a fair knowledge at least of the ways of the town in respect to its law ani. order and the always present iuelinai ion of the average citizen' to comply therewith, but I am of the tipinion that there is far too much bad language used in town streets, and in public places. I say with deep repugnance that the use of foul language is more in evi dence than 20 years ago. People who might be expected to know a little better seem to think it an aet of valour to often pollute the atmosphere by defiance of the laws and ethics of all social decency and by ase of appallingly filthy language. Any remonstrance with suer people only means a further outflow, and it is hop ed that the magistrate will show little clemency * to those before them, as...
