Education—Now and Hereafter. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
Education — Now and Hereafter. Almost the only thing on which all schools of advanced thinkers are in agree ment is on the necessity of a democracy being educated. At the same time they may differ widely as to the methods of educating the young so as to best fit them for future citizenship. The Labor Movement stands for the widest extension and highest form of edu cation possible to attain, to be free, secu lar and compulsory. The first Labor Government, with all its shortcomings, did good work in extending educational facilities, both general and technical, and gave a chance to adults to improve themselves by the establishment of Continuation Schools in the larger cen tres. It was the Labor Party which first demanded}., complete free education in primary schools, and although it was the i Carruthers Liberal Government which enacted free education, it was Labor, pres sure which brought it about. The most fatal and unpardonable error on the part of the McGowen and Holman Governments ...

Abolition of Flogging. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
Abolition of Flogging. Poynton, Acting Minister for the Navy, has given orders, he says, to entirely abolish flogging on training ships. The Acting Minister tries to draw nice distinctions between 'flogging,' 'whip- ping,' and 'caning,' but that is only the nonsensical maunderlngs of an ill natured man who had to back down from his attitude of last week, when he an nounced that 'discipline had to be main- t| tained' with a firm hand 'with the gloves 38 Just like this Ministry to 'take the W gloves off' to fight helpless- lads who ace -sg first securely tied up.- J| It is satisfying to find that their cour- J| age oozed out when an enraged public jfflj opinion showed its teeth.

ROUND THE SHOWS HOME PRODUCTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
I ROUND THE SHOWS 1] ' . '? ?:'''? ??'??viTiv JANTJ! 'gfiinnNH v HOME PRODUCTIONS. Beaumont Smith's statement that un less conditions are improved and equit able terms can be secured for the screen ing of home-made pictures in city theatres the Australian picture industry will; have, to cease, gives one something of a 6hock. Are we really so little Aus tralian in spirit as this? Here is a man (Beau. Smith is only one of many, but he is the chief Australian producer) who has devoted time, patience and money to an industry which can only bring more bread and butter into the mouths of little and big Australians, having to yield to a defeat simply because his own country will not put out a hand to help him. It is little use that Australians want home made pictures. That will not induce the theatre managers to give the home pro ducers a chance. No! While Yankee film can be brought in cheap and nasty and tainted, they will buy it, and, having the monopoly of the picked metropolitan theatr...

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets. J. E. Barker: "Economic Statesmanship, 1918." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
[ RN0VMTGB«5P0WER PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets.' J. E. Barker: 'Economic Statesmanship, 1918.' Mr. Barker considers, in this work, the great economic questions of the future from the statesman's point of view. He maintains that national economy is the most important part of practical states manship, and that the success of a na tional business policy depends not upon its attractiveness and popularity, but upon its soundness, upon exact information, and .. upon facts. So it will be found that these pages by Mr. Barker are filled with docu mentary and statistical evidence and au thoritative data, instead of vague gener .alities. A brief summary of the most important features of the book follows: The last few years have proved that the policy of 'drift' in economic matters, in which the security of the State is sub ordinated to the liberty of action of in dividuals who merely strive to benefit themselves, is fatal, ana that the nation wide harmonised and o...
BOXING. FRANK DARCY DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
BOXING. FRANK DARCY DEAD. Frank ('Frosty') Darcy died of pneu monic influenza in St. Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, early on Thursday morning. The heartfelt sympathy of all Australia will go out to the Darcy family in this, their second, great bereavement. Like his brother, the famous Les Darcy, Frank was in all the glory of vigorous* ,young manhood, and only a few weeks ago ten thousand people were cheering him to the echo on the occasion of his first big victory at the Rushcutter's Bay Stadium. -£*?» Bearing a striking resemblance to his late brother, and possessing the same in vincible cheerfulness, he at once became the idol of sporting Sydney, and bid fair to emulate the great deeds of the unbeat able Les. The sporting community in par ticular will learn with genuine regret of the death of this splendid young Austra lian athlete. OL M. M. WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WORLD.

Socialism—What Is It? A REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
Socialism— What Is It ? A REVIEW. Comrade Norman H. Freeberg, sub editor of the Queensland 'Worker,' has written and published a little volume of 140 pages under the above title. It is subdivided into nearly fifty chapters, and is sold at the modest price of eighteen pence, and is well worth the price. This is avowedly a book for beginners md for propaganda purposes. Everyone who wants goofl, solid argu ments clearly stated in simple language, with which to convince a doubter or re fute an opponent, should buy a copy for himself, and another to give away. The greater part , of the work is de voted to answering the numerous objec tions which have been, and are still being, urged against the adoption of Socialism. This it does in a happy, convincing style, which shirks nothing, yet never tires or confuses the reader by laboring the point overmuch.

A Woman's Hands. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
A Woman's Hands. (For 'The Labor News.') A woman's hands, so soft and white, ' That cling to your brown fist; Those little .hands, with what delight You clasp them at a tryst! So fine are they, that one could scar Them with a heather bell, And yet no clanking chain and. bar Could hold you half as well. A woman's hands, they should be small, Not made to beat and flog; I loathe the kind that well could maul A baby or a dog. The big, red hand, the cruel hand, That grips you like a make; The hand, if all its lines were 6canned, A man would never take. May 5, 1919. lIASCOT.

To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
To the Editor, 'Labor JXewB.' 4 Sir,— The opening paragraph of the f&m Arthur Griffith's letter upon this puj|j|c|j is so amazing and so unwarranted tha^ I ask for an opportunity to reply. Henryy George did not propose to nationalise land. ' He proposed to tax land values;' He did not propose to take any man's \ land from him, whether he had paid for it, - J or got it for nothing. . His proposal is not 'I of a retrospective character, like some oT . ^ the unjust Federal taxation measures. y*j There is, therefore, no 'moral bar' such ^ as Mr. Griffith suggests, to the adoption^ '- of George's proposals. The moral bar ^ is in the existing system, and George ; seeks to remove it in the simplest and s most practical way. : At this point I wish to, acknowledge freely the valuable work flone by Mr. Griffith, when he was a Labor Minister, in passing the Valuation of Land Act. I agree with him that immediate steps should be taken to put that Act into ope ration so that an up-to-date...
NATIONALISATION OF UNEARNED INCREMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
NATIONALISATION OF UNEARNED INCREMENT. Sir, — Will you allow me to say, in answer Will you allow me to say, in answer to Mr. Arthur Griffith with regard to his contention that present land values are rightfully, the private property of the in dividual owner of the land, but any fur ther increase ought to be taken for the use of the community, firstly, that land is essentially different from al lother forms of property, inasmuch as it is not the pro duct of man's labor, but the gift of Gofl or Nature, intended for the use of all. Secondly, that all land values, howsoever the land itself has been acquired, are a toll paid by labor to-day and not, by past labor.. .?-... - Or, as Henry George says: 'Tile value obligation, and not from production/' Lb^p§^J ot the same nature aa that'o'r;:cbatM||l slavery.'

FLOGGING, WHIPPING, OR CANING IN OUR NAVY. t (To the Editor. 'Labor -News.') Sir, — I have never voted - Labor . in my life. I have always supported tfte Liberal, or, as they are now called, the National candidates at election time, but for some considerable time past I . have been so much impressed witii the humanitarian policy of Labor that I have often found myself wondering whether after all I am right in overlooking the claims which Labor has established upon the com munity generally for support I have often been impressed with the fact that mem bers of the Labor Party, in addition to the many reforms that they have been instru mental in bringing, about, are prepared to take a practical interest in matters which the National party would regard as being beneath th^ir notice. In this connection I refer particularly to the beat Ing of the boys oh the Tingira. I could not have believed it possible that such a state of affairs would be tolerated for one moment in a democratic countr...

With the object of inquiring as to what extent the drastic restrictions, alleged to be necessary owing to the influenza epi demic, had affected the business com munity, a representative called this week on several leading firms in Sydney, amongst which was The Adelaide Tailor ing Company, that well-known and solidly established Tailoring Store at the corner of George and Market Streets.

Paddington By-Election. RETURNED SOLDIERS BUTT IN. For four and a half years the world has been deluged with the blood of millions of the world's workers, whose lives were sacrificed on the altar of capi talistic greed and militaristic autocracy. You were nromised everything that the world could give — good jobs, free houses, good conditions for your' wives and child ren — if only you answered the call of Empire. You responded nobly, made great sacri fices on behalf of Capitalism. You have returned to be quickly disillusioned, for your jobs have gone, your wives live in rooms, your children are ill-clad and hungry, you walk your boots off your feet looking for the work that is unobtain able. You ate beaten from pillar to post, because the much-boosted Repatriation is a farce. Holman and his push of hypocrites are still trying to fool you. Take heed ere it is too late and recog nise that the only way for you to obtain justice is per medium of the Labor Move ment Returned soldiers wil...

Every sensible man knows that all our rulers, politicians, public speakers, par sons, and newspapers stated, thousands . of times, that you were taking part in 'a just war to end war.' That you were' going to fight for LIBERTY, for JUSTICE, for the RIGHTS OF SMALL NATIONS, and 'TO MAKE THE WORLD SAFE FOR DEMOCRACY.' What are the results?
