HOW A NAVAL BASE IS PROTECTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
- HOW A NAVAL BASE IS PROTECTED. This illustration shows how a naval base Is protected, and why it is difficult for submarines or any other craft to gain an entrance. . Across the entrance of-the harbor-Cuxhaven, for instance-is placed a heavy wire net supported by heavy floats and booms. -The Inner side of this Is constantly patrolled by torpedo craft. Outside are laid mines at varying depths. A submarine or any Craft attacking the' harbor would first of all have to negotiate the mine fields and then get through the net. Our artist has shown the fate that would come to a submarine if It attempted to nose its way in. It can readily be understood how the British sub: marines were able to get near enough to KieJ Harbor to see the German fleet at anchor, but they could not penetrate the mine and net defences. Our artist has only shown one length of the netting, but there might be two or three with mine fields between each, In order to thoroughly block any enemy craft. Of course, this m...
MOTORBOAT HAS CONCRETE FOUNDATION FOR ENGINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
MOTORBOAT HAS CONCRETE FOUNDATION FOR ENGINE. Instead of the usual wooden foundation be. neath the engine, a motorboat has been con -tructed in which concrete was used for the purpose with excellent effect. At the forward end of the foundation site, a bulkhead was built between the engine flywheel and crank case, rising as far as the engine shaft. A similar bulkhead was built aft, and the engine was sus pended in correct alignment by means of heavy wires at the proper height. The propeller shaft was connected to the engine shaft by its holted coupling. lrom the four bolt holes in the engine-foundation lugs, were hung the bolts, each with a big washer over the head where the cement would grip it. Paper was wrapped around the crank case to protect it from contact with the concrete. 'The cement was mixed rather "wet," so that it would run freely, and the result was the engine rested upon a rigid bed when the cement had set. Comnplete absence of vibration -is claimed for this foundation...
SONGS OF THE ARMY. "WE'RE HERE BECAUSE WE'RE HERE!" [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
SONGS OF THE ARMY. "WE'RE HERE BECAUSE WE'RE HERE I" Senseless and monotonous as this refrain is, there is a remarkable swing in it, and fifty men reiterating "Seven men, six men, five men, four men, three men, two men, one man," pro duce a most curious vocal effect, something like an orchlestra of jew's harps I Another of these reiterated refrains goes to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne," and consists simply of this : We're here, because we're here, because we're here, because we're here We're here because we're here, because we're here, because we're here. A yet more popular one runs: Here we are, here we are, here we are again. Here we are, here we are, here we are again. Oh..io..ioioio. WOW! The "Wow" comes out with a terrific yelp, a sort of vocal horseplay that delights us'im-' measurably I Then there are the improvised songs. You often hear us swinging along to the tune- of a well-known hymn. I regret to say that the words are not those associated with the airiin the hymn-book. F...

A FEARLESS ACTRESS KATHLYN WILLIAMS OF THE SELIG COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
A FEARLESS ACTRESS KATHLYN WILLIAMS, OF THE SELIG COMPANY. Kathlyn Williams, famous throughout Ame rica as the heroine of "The Adventures of Kathlyn," a serial to be shortly presented in Australia, is the leading lady of the Selig Polyscope Company. During her senior year in high school the failing of family fortune compelled her to start out to seek her own, which she did with a modesty and force of energy that soon demonstrated her superiority in mnastering whatever she undertook. Miss Williains' charm secured her an engagement from a Western theatrical manager. She had not been on the stage long before she was observed by Senator Clark, the copper king, who made inquiries about the young girl, and offered to polish the rough diamond. Through Senator Clark's generosity Miss Williams was sent to the Franklin Sargent Dramatic School in New York, where she studied two years, to such advantage that, at her graduation, she found the position of leading woman with a dramatic company. Wi...

Helpless on the Battlefield [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
Helpless on the Battlefeld TPARIS, November 28. The following extracts from the letter of an unnamed French soldier to his father in Paris are published by the "Figaro": "Woundedrin the stomach about 6 o'clock in the morning, I am left in the rain and in mud so deep that I am obliged to lean on my elbows to keep my head out of it. "The battle continues to rage. I am between the two camps, and, without exaggeration, more -than 150.000 bullets pass over me. Some struck at my sides, and I expect each moment to re ceive one which will cut short the spectacle. I remain thus helpless from 6 o'clock in the morning until 4 o'clock the next afternoon, and the rain does not stop. It is then that I ap preciate the need of an umbrella. I, who never carried one. I unbutton my coat, but I am unable to determine the gravity of my wound, for there is as much mud as blood. "Towards 2 o'clock there is a lull in the firing. I await the stretcher bearers, but, like sister Anne, they do not come. The ho...
Women and the Land [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
Women and thwnd e Lan Most countries have long since realised the fitness of women for the land, and the import ance of assisting them materially in their efforts to maintain independence away from the office and store, the factory and the mill, in a. healthy, vigorous outdoor life. But in this matter Australia; and New South Wales in particular, has been singularly inert with the exception of a few earnest women and men who have been steadily working to solve some workable scheme whereby their objective. a training school for women in all branches of horticulture, floriculture, poultry farming, bee keeping, fruit and vegetable preservation, should be established. an economic factor in this country, and if we can 'make them primary producers, then they will he invaluable to the State. Never before in the history of this country have we been in greater need of producers. Our youth and manhood have gone and are .going to do battle for us, and if we can equip numbers of our women who a...
THE LOSS OF THE FORMIDABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
THE LOSS OP THE ?ERMIDABLE. Many people seem to connect the Formidable with the squadron bombarding Zeebrugge, but though she may have possibly been carrying out these duties ;n the past, she certainly did not take part in the reported bombardment of last week. It is more likely that in such dirty weather as was prevailing at the time that she was engaged in patrolling duties, because un dcr such conditions, even such old battleships as those of her class would be able to make much more headway than a lighter ship, which would have a much higher speed under normal conditions. Although the whereabouts of the disaster have not been made public, it seems from the fact that a rowing boat reached Prime Regis, in Dorset, and that other survivors were landed in Tor Bay by a trawler, that the un fortunate occurrence took place somewhere in the vicinity of Portland Race. If such were the case, there was little chance of escape for any who may have got into the water, for un der ordinary cond...
WHY THE GERMANS WANT CALAIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
WHY THE GERMANS WANT CALAIS. It is altogether a mistake to imagine that Germany's dire efforts to reach Calais are but the outcome of. the Kaiser's vaunting ambition. The military correspondent of the London "'inaes," dealing with this question, says: - "The Kaiser is nothing if not theatrical, and he doubtless imagines that when, if ever, he plants the German flag on the southern shores of the Straits of Dover ho will impress opinion, alarm England, and influence the neutrals who are still sitting on the fence. But Calais at tracts all German soldiers for other than thena trical reasons, namely because they believe that from the French ports in and near 'he Straits they can begin under more favorable conditionr the attack upon Engoand. The idea is that just as Napoleon lined all this coast with bat teries, and enabled his flotillas to pass more or less unscathed from one French port to another, so the Germans can mount guns to keep our ships at a distance, and can turn Ostend, Dunk...
BRITAIN'S GROWING FLEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
BRITAIN'S GROWING FLEET. - The war has now been in progress a little over five months, and during that time the Bri tish Navy has been strengthened by the addi. tion of six super-Dreadnoughts, one battle cruiser, eight light cruisers of 30 knots, threw monitors, two flotilla leaders of 31 knots, 2. destroyers of 30 to 34 knots, and an unknown number of submarines, some of which are boats of 1500 tons and carry-6-inch guns and a large number of torpedoes. In the Dreadnoughts alone we have added to the striking power of our Grand Fleer 16 15-inch guns, 38 13.5-inch, 14 12-inch, and 112 6-inch guns.
Passing Observations on the European Struggle [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
Passing Observations on the European Struggle By No. 243 The birden of the fircial communiques deal log with the fighting on the western front dur Ing the past few weeks, has been the artillery duels, waged with almost unvarying success as far as the Allies are concerned. This to some nay seem strange after what we have heard from various sources of the wonderful German guns and ther powers of destrnction. It has to.be remembered, however, that the Germans have not had the opportunity of renewing their material from time to time as have the lrenrh and the British. They are therefore now suffering from the after effects of the reck' lrrs manner in which they used their weapons at the outset of the struggle. The life of a fied, gun is not everlasting and the same ap plies even in greater degree to the heavier pat terns of seige guns. From the evidence now to hand, it seerms that in the earlier stage of the struggle, the British forces in the field were ty no means over supplied with a...
The "No More Made in Germany" Cry Must be Permanent [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 16 January 1915
The "No More Made i~ Germany" Cry Must be Permanent The main stocks of German and Austrian goods held in this country at the commence ment of the war must have been thoroughly ex hausted. It is time, therefore, to tighten up the resolution our people have made to buy no more "Made in Germany." While a number of firms held large stocks bought and paid for prior to the war, there was an element of injustice in absolutely boycotting them. At the time they bought the goods no question of patriotism came into the transac tion. The question existed, of course, for Germany has all tie time been piling up money out of our trade with which to fight our Em pire; but as far as the business people here were concerned, the point was-not seen, and therefore their trading was innocent. To-day their eyes have been opened, and they see that any dealing, direct of indirect, with Ger man firms, or the handling of German goods, constitutes an act of treachery. INNOCENT AND REPREHENSIBLE TRADING. Quite ...
