CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by our correspondents. "MADE IN GERMANY." To the Editor of the "Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 October 1914
CORlRESPONDENC?. Wo to not naeaossriy idontify ourselves with t11 opinions cprosoed by our corroepondonto, "MADE IN (iERM.\NY," To the Editor of the "Advertiser." Sir,--Kindly permit enc to makle an earnest appeal to Nott'r iealdet, that theyl maty Ima fair-minded in this hour of trial. I find that, in Vil lialnltown and elsewhere, on111c people are refusing to buy from tradesmen anything "i:ditle in Ger many." This attitude, I submit, is very unfair to tht, tr'adesncn; it. punishes them, not the GierLmaniit manl;factOllls and exporters.

If those goods are not bought fronm our shops, it is our own loyal fcllow-citi. zens, the retatileris, who iose. I ask, \\hy shiould they be ;madle to suffer?. No goods mIade in Ger mlialy since the wtar hlgin are ; r lriving, and, if sxve c hoose, we can henceforth prohibit any Germian goods from entering Australi...
