STRAIGHT LEFTS AND STRANGLEHOLDS (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 22 September 1939
STRAIGHT LEFTS AND STRANGLEHOLDS (To the Editor) Sir,-As one who served'in the South African and Great Wars, I would like to draw attention to the fact that while our young men are nobly responding to the call for ser vice, thus weakening many branches of sport here, we have promotors of boxing and wrestling arranging con tests between men from overseas. This means huge amounts of money leaving this country which will be sorely needed in the future. It is also unfair to the athlete in Australia who has joined up. We could well follow the New Zea land Government as to restriction on money being taken out of the coun try. We 'read that endeavors are still be ing. made abroad to sign men up for contests here. As their ideas should• be the same as ours in this crisis, their straight lefts and strangleholds would be bet ter practised on the enemy. I think this matter should be taken up by the Soldiers' League and other public bodies.-Yours etc., L. MARTIN. 6 Smeed St., Black Rock.
WAR PROFITS (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 22 September 1939
WAR PROFITS S . '(To the. Editor) Sir,-A number of the big daily newspapers must have made and be making Quite large profits from the extra sale of copies due to war news. From the patriotic sentiments so persistently expressed, the proprietors of these valuable mediums of public information would, I feel sure, wel come any idea for making use of these gains for the successful and speedy termination of the present conflict. It is hereby suggested, therefore, that the War Ministry be invited to send an auditor to inspect accounts and to specify what part of the pro fits gained may be attributed to war sales. This could then be handed over to the Commonwealth Govern ment to be used to 'inpart still more officiency to our military machine. This would not, of course, apply to publications such as the Standard, which does not seek to make capital out, of the unfortunate cir cumstance of war.-Yours etc., Caulfleld. F.M.C.
