A WALL OF BRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 14 October 1916
A WALL OF BRASS. She is a wall of brass : You shall not pass ! You shall not pass t Spring up like Summer grass. Surge at her, mass on mass, , ^ * Still shall you break like glass, '''/ Splinter and break like shivered glass. But pass ? You shall not pass ! German, you shall not, shall not pass ! God's hand has written on the wall of brass— You shall not pass ! You shall not pass ! The valleys, are quaking, The torn hills are shaking. The earth and the sky seem breaking. But unbroken, undoubting, a wonder and sign. She stands, France stands, and still holds to the line. She counts her wounded and her dead : You shall not pass ! She sets her teeth, she bows her head : You shall not pass '. Till the last soul in the fierce line has fled You shall not pass ! Help France ? Help France ? Who would not, thanking God for this great chance, Stretch out his hands and run to succor France. — Harold Begbie.

FALLEN! [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 14 October 1916
FALLEN ! Those brave, who died that silver bands Of Austral's honor might not break, We leave within their Maker's hands : For Austral's sake. —GUNNER WESTBROOK (Aus.). To one of the returned doctors it was sug gested that their experience in the military hospitals at the front would be of value to the young doctorj gone there. 'It will make them useful in railroad accidents,' snapped the distinguished surgeon.

Germans say they have 21 new liners near ing the finish. So is their navy. 'Among the presents to the young folks were six Jersey cows, one of which was a fine Alder ney bull.' One of the boys writes from the front : 'The Germans may say God is with them, but our chaps THEY KNOW. 'Why did Greece perish ? ' Certainly not for the reason that it was in any hurry to get under fire. The limit has been reached. A man, in New Zeal-.nd, has been fined £5 for offering to shout for another.

UMPIRES IN GRADE CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 14 October 1916
UMTIRES IN GRADE CRICKET. Mr. H. Joyce (umpire) writes from Railway Works. Evelsigh (9/10/'16): 'Kindly allow me space to answer your views re umpires. I am an umpire of the N.S.W. Cricket Association of 13 seasons, and was astonished at the notes referred to. Your writer evidently expects a lot for nothing, and I would like to ask him would he etand as a labor of love to-dav ? He considers it gives just as much pleasure umpir ing as playing, both having the same interest. I beg to differ, and would like to point out that during my experience for this long period I have found it a hard job to get clubs to ap point a mate to me. This is not very grati fying, as even players do not understand the rules they play under. As regards expenses, it costs me for some matches 1/ to 2.' over the expenses allowed (2/9) each afternoon. I always do attend to my post, and have always done so. as a labor of love to the game ; but I have to get my expenses in the future, and act free of cost to the ...
CRICKET OPENING TO-DAY Notes on Clubs and Players by Not Out [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 14 October 1916
CRICKET OPENING TO-DAY Notes on Clubs and Players by Not Out At the hour of writing the«e notes the sun is ihiaifig briffatiy, and there is a good prospect of a fine afternoon for opening the season among the grade clubs. But in tho light of wet weather experiences of late it is not ssfc to reckon for certain that the campaign will be started. In any case the matches listed for this aiteraoon are to be restricted to one day, I the first day's play having been lost Though | last Saturday turned out one of Nature's most i perfect Spring days, it was generally acknow- 1 ledged that the Association was wise to defer I the start, for it gave the Grounds a chance to j recover from the heavy soaking, whereas play ? might have resulted in the fine and laborious | work of the men who prepare the wickets after the turmoil of football being largely undone. Some of the First Grade clubs will have in their elevens to-day a few colts, the tallins-up of those over 21 years having brought into khak...
SYDNEY CRICKET GROUND MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 14 October 1916
SYDNEY CRICKET GROUND MEMBERS. The trustees of tfic Sydney 'Cricket Ground rnrve isstied an appeal to members to continue their subscriptions during the period of the war, and thus help the powers that be to keep the ground in the best of order. This should meet ?wren a gooa acai 01 support irom tnose de voted to cricket, for they are the men whose subscriptions year after year have been the ma testa y of the ground. The trustees not so long ago played a prominent part in subscrib ing to the fund for the building of an Austra lian Nffvy, and in other ways spent money for the benefit of the nation. And I feel sure now that first-class cricket is temporarily suspended many will respond to the appeal. I would like to sec a suggestion go forward from the members to the trustees to the effect .that the time is opportune for extending to them a voice in the matters affecting the con venience of members at the ground. There is not, and never has been, a social atmosphere to be compared wit...

ADVERTISE IN THE ARROW. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 14 October 1916
APVERTISE IN THE ARROW. His. trade was bad. The man was sad. He used an ad., ? And now he's glad. So is his wife. Since trade came back. She's wearing shoes Laced in the back. To hit the pace that wins the race One must use advertising space. In England our boys are not permitted to wear their hats with the rakish turn-down of the brim which appealed to the people of Lon don when first seen there. Commenting on this an English paper says : 'If the tilt of the hat is to go, it would seem that some person in authority has been making a bad use of time, which. Heaven knows, has many pressing de mands on it. ' '
"ME." [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 14 October 1916
'ME.' I didn't raise a musket to my shoulder, I didn t even figure in the fight, I left it to the better men, and bolder, I knew, of course, that they would be all right; I watched the crowds of other fellows leaving, I cheerd 'em loudly steaming out to sea; A most inspiring sight; blood of OUR blood going to fight. But I overlooked the fact they wanted 'ME.' I wonder if, in after years, I'll ponder As the younger generations come along ? On the splendid work we 'all' did over yon- s dcr^ ? 'WE ALL DID!' No, yov.'ll pardon me, I'm wrong; And the truth will strike me harder when I'm older. If I have to tell youngsters at my knee That I didn't raise a musket to my shoulder, ' That among the sturdy stay-at-homes was 'Me.' t The thoughts of it will haunt me then, I The thoughts of it, they haunt me even now, As the legions of our buried soldiers beckon. Nobly pointing out the way for us to go. And it's 'ME' they meant— not younger men nor older, -r The call was not for Smith or Jones — ...
