Nobility of Our Women. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

Nobility off Oar Women. (By 'KAREITE') - 'Write me something light and bright,' asked the editor of the 'National Leader;' Something light and bright! And I have just spoken to abrayeman who risked his life for me, and such as me who cannot go to the war, and found r that he had been terribly wounded; I have just been endeavoring to console with a mother who lost her boy. Some thing light and bright from one who feels about ten thousand years old. To be quite frank, I don't want to ' write any thing, light or heavy, bright or dull. I want to sit on a far-away back seat, as it were, out of the noise of the hurry of the . -crowd, and try to think. Somebody asked me the other day, knowing I was one who has a simple faith in some things I can't explain, what ?purpose there could be in such slaughter. 5 I could not answer; I cannot read the riddles of high heaven. But it seems to me that everything that happens on such a gigantic scale is part of the great scheme of Nature's colossal evo...

War Service in Palestine. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

? ? 1 War Service in Palestine. (By a Member of the 2nd Light Horse Field Ambulance, now on War Service in - the Holy Land) I don't think I told you that just pre- i ?vious to tlie Gaza fight an aviator was j brought into the hospital in a state of exhaustion. It -appears that his machine had been hit while flying over the Turk ish lines. He was forced to -descend about four miles oiit at sea. Even after he was down the Turks continued shell ing him. They did not hit him, however, and after ? being four hours in the water he succeeded in making the shore, where lie was captured by a Turkish patrol. During the night he escaped from the enemy, and then had a walk of thirty : miles' in the sand to our lines. He was compelled to keep to the beach, and often was forced to take to tbe water to avoid the Turkish outposts. He eventu ally reached our lines exhausted, but otherwise unhurt. His adventures are a bit of a record, and would be hard to believe in ordinary times, but at present not...

Settling Soldiers, A NEW SOUTH WALES PROJECT. ATTRACTIVE FREEHOLD TENURES, PROVISION IN QUEENSLAND. PREPARATION OF AREAS. From all reports the New South Wales Government is energetically and effec tively carrying out its new land policy for the settlement of returned soldiers. A, NOVEL SCHEME.

Training Disabled Soldiers. WHAT EUROPE IS DOING. WHAT IS AUSTRALIA DOING? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

Training Disabled Soldiers. 1 WHAT EUROPE. IS DOING. WHAT IS AUSTRALIA DOING? The making of such provision that disabled soldiers in after-life may have the satisfaction of being wholly or partly self-maintaining forms a war problem of paramount importance. The matter has been taken up earnestly and comprehen sively in most of the European countries, and it is hoped that such methods of treatment and instruction of wounded and permanently disabled injured men will be^devised that they may return with a certain degree of confidence to the civil life of the community. The general idea is to train them as far as possible along the lines of their former callings; AN INTERESTING REPORT. An interesting report bearing on this important subject has been prepared for the Federal Government by Lieut. R. J. Collins, an architect, of Sydney, lately returned wounded from the front. The information should be of the greatest aid to the Government in formulating its schemes. The spirit that should ...

Women's War Work. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

Women's War Work. Tke women of Australia liave not taken to practical war work as their sisters in England have done. That they would do so if opportunity permitted or necessity demanded has been established beyond doubt. Their preparations for the great dis play on June .4 show that they are in earnest, and on that, day they will give 'ocular demonstration to the manhood of Brisbane that they are desirous and able to undertake many of the duties now per formed by males. It is to be hoped that the direct appeal of the display will not miss its aim. It is intended to show eligible men who may be engaged in light though neces sary work that the women of Brisbane are -willing to free them for active ser vice, and the result surely should make a marked increase in the number of en listments. It was the railway companies in Eng land which pioneered the employment of women in occupations previously mono polised by men. They started soon after the beginning of the war, and the movement ver...

Editor's Dugout. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

Editor's Dugout. * One of the most pleasing features of the 'National Leader' last week was the letter written by Mrs. Rose Cowen from 'Longford,' Juridah, in -which the kind offer was made to put up, as guests, one or two returned soldiers who, although well- enough to leave the military hos pital, may not be strong enough to start work. Mrs. Cowen's letter is but one of nine such letters which we have received up to date, and it is a source of great satisfaction that both in the country and the cities, good patriots are seeking to succour our disabled soldiers. At a re cent meeting in Brisbane it was urged that all this is the duty of the Govern ment. It is; and the care of returned men until they can go back to the world of work again strong and able to fend for themselves should be a charge against the people as a whole. ? If we were to wait, however, until the Govern ment thoroughly recognises its duty in that direction scores of our soldiers would be left to drift into derelic...

The Rag-Pickers at Inns of Court. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

The Rag-Pickers at Inns of Corart. It is on the third floor at Inns of Court that the 'rag-pickers' work. In a long, narrow room opening on to the balcony — a room bearing the red cross over the door — one may always find them— -three or four women, sorting and clipping and rolling this most necessary article in Red Cross nursing — soft old linen. Such a fresh, sweet scent greets one on entering — the scent one associates with the big linen cupboard at home— the crisp, fresh scent of clean linen. And here it is in piles, heaped into overflow ing baskets and boxes. Old- sheets, than which nothing is softer or more suitable; soft damask tablecloths, which have perhaps covered the table at many merry supper parties; fine muslin frocks, worn by girls whoss brothers are now fighting 'somewhere in France'; soft shirts, packed away when the dear lads who wore them laid them aside for khaki; and, peeping out among the rest, the lace-trimmed sleeve of a tiny baby's frock. From far and wide t...

AUSTRALIAN NOTE REFORM TO STIMULATE RECRUITING. ' (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

AUSTRALIAN NOTE REFORM TO STIMULATE RECRUITING. ' (To the Editor.) Sir, — 'The soldier's profession, no mat ter^ what led to his enlistment, is the most honorable in the world, because he sacrifices his life daily. This is the opinion of the great reasoner, John Rus kin. And if the soldier is not killed to day, at least he offers himself at the wdrd of command. Implicit obedience and devotion through dreadful hardships are demanded of him, as well as absence from domestic joys. The chance of drag ging out the balance pf his life mutilated and neglected has too often been his por tion. The world soon forgets services rendered, despite all its promises to dp great things for their heroes when they come back.. I say — Do it now.- Let us render an equivalent in service at home to compensate soldiers for their work at the front on our behalf. -We would not ask a 'carpenter or any tradesman to work for the meagre pay of a soldier; Let us, then, in common justice, try the inducement of hig...

OLD JEWELLERY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

OLD JEWELLERY. The Red Cross are making an appeal for old jewellery for their old jewellery section which has been established at the headquarters depot in Adelaide street. The idea of giving bits of old jewellery or plate or even old coins for sale has been a great success in Eng land and also in the South, and the com mittee of the Red Cross hope by this means to augment their funds in pre paration for their big effort in July, when they hope not only to continue their good work here, but to send a donation to the British Red Cross Society.

The Curse of Political Unionism. A National Unionist Debarred from Employment. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

The Curse of Political Unionism. A National Unionist Debarred from Employment. ~ There came into the office of the 'National Leader' on Monday last a sailor, returned from active service, named George Samuel Ball. The tale that Mr. Ball told of union tyranny, if substantiated in its essential details, calls for drastic and immediate action. Mr. Ball served ,12 years in the British 1 Navy, was ih the naval reserve in Queensland for many years, has put in twelve months with the Australian naval forces on active service, and was one of the party at the landing in New Guinea. Before leaving Brisbane in August, 1914, he was, he informed us, a financial member of the Waterside Workers' Union, and of the Seamen's ¥nion, and he produced his pence or pass book to show that in the latter union his dues are paid up until the end of June, 1917. During Mr. Ball's- absence on national duty his wife paid ? up his fees in the Waterside Workers' Union up to the end ef 1915. She was then informed, sa...
