True Loyalty [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 15 September 1939

True Loyalty oUo It is very disheartening to.hear people saying: "We must economise"; "We must save money," ,and so on. May we ask why, and what for? -If the-Australian-people cut down their usual: expendi ture they are, going to create unemployment-and a spot of bother for the Government. Mr Menzies, a very level-headed man, has asked the people to-"carry on." The best'way'we can serve the Empire at present is "to carry on." Any person who is hoarding money, or food, or in any way altering the usual daily procedure of living is not being a loyal citizen. Loyal words are not needed-they are cheap-but loyal actions are demanded from every sensible Australian. Which class do you belong to?

Let's Write a Letter HONORABLE A. A. DUNSTAN, Premier of Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 15 September 1939

Let's write a Letter I- ---------0 Q ----- HONORABLE A. A. DUNSTAN, Premier of Victoria. Dear Albert,-Congrats. on the celerity with which you applied your boot to the pants of profiteering pirates. Your master stroke in making the effect of the Act retrospective from September 1 will be. greatly appreciated by hundreds of Australians-and we are unfortunately included' in the number-who were victimised on the Monday and Tuesday following the declaration: of War. Too many are still alive who remember the bushranging tactics during the 1914.18 War to fall for It again. As in many other ways, we are commencing war-time trading in this war where we finished off Sinthd last. It is Indeed` disappointing to those concerns whose ideas of business ethics permit them to rob their fellow-Britishers in times of crisis for individuals like you to be in power. But there it is, and there you will remain if we can help tat all in the matter. Yours, THE STANIDARD.
