WAR PENSIONS QUIXOTIC GENEROSITY To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931

WAR PENSIONS QUIXOTIC GENEROSITY To the Editor I am, Sir. &c "CITIZEN." Si r —I am surprised at the reply of Mr. E. Bolingbroke, who attempts to justify our extravagant war pensions. All I wished to demonstrate was that ! England is spending to-day less than | half on war pensions compared with her expenditure in 1921, while we are actually paying more, and the cost of our pensions mounts higher year by year. I would like some politician or Government official to explain this in credible discrepancy, imt, of course, there is no reply, except such a letter as that of Mr. Bolingbroke, who ex plains nothing and justifies nothing, but talks all round the question, like a lawyer with a bad case. To satisfy his curiosity. I give the actual amount of the annual increases in the cost of pensions during the past three years:— ! 1927. £134,000: 1928, £130.000; 1929. £127.000. I thank -Citizens" Batman" , for his informative letter, giving a number of details of which I knew nothing. C...

Two men walked on to my property and demanded at a minute's notice the full balance on a motor car and notwithstanding that the car was the only means of transport lor my self, wife and family, and we are 30 miles from the nearest doctor they drove the car away. They went a few miles further on and took a farmer's truck, which he used for cart ing- water for his horses. He was only I about £17 in arrear. The same firm I has sent its men throughout the Mur ray lands and have taken a consider able number of cars. The men told me that their instructions were to clean this district up if it took them a month to do so. Mr. Pittman should peruse the Trade Gazette and see the dozens of fresh names each week of farmers who have called meetings of creditors. .In most cases the merchants have allowed the farmer ...

PLIGHT OF FARMERS APPEAL TO GOVERNOR GENERAL "Wfceatgrowers on Verge of Ruin" Mallala, February 26. A meeting-held at Mallala on Monday night decided to place the position of farmers before the Governor-General (Sir Isaac Isaacs) with an appeal for justice. Mr. J. Nairn, chairman of the District Pool Committee) occupied the chair. The ruling price of wheat was dis cussed. It was readily agreed that this not only showed no profit for the farmer, but no wages, and no means of paying for the many things he wanted, which the townsmen and Ade laide traders had provided in anticipa iton of his demand. Townsmen were prepared, therefore, to make common cause with the fanner, and do what they could to help restore his paying power and his buying power. Broken Promises It was pointed out that farmers had been calling upon the Governments for fair play for years, and all they had received was sympathy and promises of consideration. No one had questioned the sympathy and no one had ever doubted...

PROTEST MEETINGS Board of Control Opposed [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 27 February 1931

PROTEST MEETINGS Board of Control Opposed At the Cortlinye wheat sheds about 150 farmers from the surrounding dis- trict met to consider their serious finan- cial position. The first of the main items dealt with was the proposed board of con trol. This was unanimously considered to be a flagrant attempt to socialise the industry. It was pointed out by seve ral speakers that the individual fanner could manage his own business affairs much more effectively than and board of control could nape to do. and much more expediliously. While agreeing that some Government action must be taken to alleviate the position, action on those lines was strongly disap proved. The proposed flour tax and bounty on wheat were also opposed by the meeting as being inequitable. One speaker pointed out it helped those most who grew most wheat. With the bounty at the rate of 1/ per bushel the farmer who produced 5,000 bags of wheat received as a bounty £750. The man who experienced a total failure received not...
