Important to Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 23 May 1917

Important to Soldiers. To remove a misconception which has arisen in some quarters, special attention is directed to the fact ?that in the " Recruiting Ready Reckoner'" published by the authority of the State Recruiting Committee, the rantes of pay and pension specified for mar ried men in the A.I.f. include whitt the soldier himself draws as well as the amount paid to the family of the soldier. It is also desired to poict out that in addition to the amount drawn during the absence of a soldier from the Commonwealth, deferred pay of 1/ per day, amounting to [18 5/ per year, is payable to a soldier ona his return rto Australia. Any pro motion from the rank of private means a corresponding increase aUl round.

Local and General. Owing to pressure on our space we are compelled to hold over a quantity of reading matter. It is all very interesting matter, and we will publish it in our next issue. Something not generally known Is that a few days prior to the event, a notice is posted inside the public room at the post office stat- ing the time of closing the mails for the Expeditionary Forces. Many friends and relatives make a prac- tice of writing regularly, but others prefer to wait for the mail. In ei- ther case, the knowledge of 'the time of departure is handy. In fu- ture also, the time of expected ar-   rival of mails will be made known publicly at the post office. This is to be much appreciated.

Underbool Sports. The initial gathering of the Under bool Sports and Race Olub was most encouraging. For some days pre vious to the gathering, the weather threatened to seriously interfere, but' the actual date proved fine, even if a trifle cold. The ground was in fair order, but a kopi bole at the back of the course nearly caused trouble in a couple of races. The officials, from the president, Mr. C. Brown, to the hardworking and capable secretaries, Messrs. J. H. Summers and A. Hill, were all at their posts, and as a re sult, the events went off with a swing. A word is due in praise of the handicappers who did their work well, bringing out some fine finishes. and completely upsetting popular fancies in both horse .and foot races. The crowd was "orderly,- except for the incident mentioned in last issue, and Mr. W. Steward, who was in charge of the booth, seemed satisfied with the day, considering the weather.
