There la an un easy conviclion. desDite a cordial wel come and popular successes at The Hague and Washington, that the Gov ernment Is now steadily losing pres tige.

Poets' Corner AIRWAY HATS. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 23 January 1930

Poet's Corner AIRWAY HATS. ''Rev. Mr. Brown recommends our Airway hats.''— Advt.   Now all parsons, I admire, their ac- quaintance I desire, I sorter feel uplifted when they're round. They may chat on subjects holy in a manner meek and lowly, But their intention's always good and sound. And Mister Brown, our curate, is a sport, He loves a joke there is no doubt of that; But goodness me! I never once have thought That I should see him in an airway hat. So when I face St. Peter, in the land where things are sweeter. (Oh! yes it is of Heaven that I speak), An enthusiastic greeting will resound upon our meeting, And he'll joyfully salute me on the cheek; He will not say, ''We're full up here to-day,'' Or any other nasty thing like that; Oh, no, he'll smile and say it's quite okay, And shake my hand and raise his airway hat. —ARIADNE.
