The Army's Eyes. A MAMMOTH REPAIR SHOP. BEHIND THE FRENCH LINES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
The Army's Eyes. A. MAMMOTH REPAIR SHOP. BEHIND THE FRENCGH; tINES. Every day the wvar cables record an increasing niuimber of air coimbats over the battle lines. in France, -aiid the loss of many aeroplanes and.their pilots. In the early days. of conflict before fighting machines and .anti aircraft guns had passed beyond the experimental', stage, the hazards of' the air service were .not extraordin ary, but now the flying men on both sides are required to take flights that seemed. impossible' months ago, and the variety of danger they are called upon to face has increased immeasur ably. The result is a great wastage of flying equipment, both human and material. It is not a simple task to replace the air pilot, a highly-trained. and almost invaluable unit-the com manding General's eyes, so to speak but it is not difficult to repair damaged aeroplanes and bluild 'new ones. France, whose air service is unrivali led, has solved the problem' of build-. ing and repairing aircraft so quic...
Richmond Union Bowling Green May Have to Go—Technical School Will Probably Rise on Present Sward. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
Richmond Union Bowling Green May Have to Go-Technical School Will Probably Rise on Present Sward. When the Richmond Council was asked, recently, to set aside portion of the large municipal area at Bridge road for a technical school site the Minister for Lands visited the scene and expressed disapproval of the plans. He declared that the only hope of Richmond ever having a properly -Pt.-out recreation ground was at the City Reserve, and if the technical school were erected on the site pro posed the probability was that that school would have to be extended, the reserve encroached upon, and Rich mond would lose its opportunity for a properly appointed central recrea tion ground. Councillors saw the force of the Minister's argument-and his foresight. It has now been decid ed that another plan shall be prenar ed which will provide for the technical school being built on the present bowl ing green, now held under nominal lease-two cigars a year-by the Rich mond Union Bowling Club. This d...

Cremorne Honor Roll to be Enlarged.—Committee Buys Slates for Children. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
Cremorne Honor Roll to be Enlarged., -Committee Buys Slates for Chil dren. So many old Cremorne boys have enlisted that the State school com mittee have found it necessary to extend the honor board. They have another hundred names to place up on it. At the annual meeting the following were elected office-bearers: President, Mr. J. Elliott; vice-presi dent, Mr. J. W. Gipson; treasurer, Mr. R. Denman; correspondent, Mr. J. D. Langdon; committee, Mrs. J. W. Gipson, Messrs. J. Elliott, J. W. Gip son, R. Denman, C. Boston, J. Hard, and J. D. Langdon. During the monthly inspection of the school, Messrs. Elliott and Boston inquired why so many children were without slates. They were informed that at the present time slates were twice the price they were previously, and many of the poorer people found it hard to keep their children in slates, for they were often broken in going to and coming from school. It was resolved that six dozen be purchased for the children and kept at the school.

Battling at Salonica. ST. PAUL AND SIR RUPERT. BARONET'S TWO YEARS' SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
Battling at Salonica ST. PAUL AND SIR RUPERT. BARONET'S TWO YEARS' SERVICE. Military discipline, once a man has been through it, is as hard to lose as an importuning creditor. Lieuten ant Sir Rupert Clarke, Bart., the mil lionaire Victorian landowner, who is at present in Sydney, is a great stick ler for military form. Should a field officer of rank step over the niat' at the Hotel Australia, where Sir Ru pert is at present occupying a plea sant suite of rooms, his hand goes up to the salute immediately. Two years of service with the army, nine months of which he spent in sight of the enemy's guns at Salon ica, have not altered Sir Rupert's manner in any other respect. He has :been invalided home, but he 'will leave for the front again as soon as he can get a doctor's certificate. of fitness. He wants to be where the guns are booming. In days before the war one of Sir Rupert Clarke's special pastimes, was "chasing -the sun." His yacht: was seen in every sunny spot in they Pacific. W...
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
Ladies' Letter. Every night in "Grumpy"-Cyril Maude's production at Melbourne Theatre Royal-Betty Murray, who plays Susan, the maid-a part she makes one of the most important in the piece-ties a, hair from her head around the stem of the fateful camel lia that figures prominently in the story. Miss Murray is nothing if not thorough. She actually pulls a real chestnut-colored hair from her head instead of merely pretending. She has played the part so many times, however, throughout America, and the Australian run promises to be such a long one, that Miss Murray is beginning to wonder whether the sup ply will last. There is a drift to the city of sol diers' wives, who come to be near their husbands "whilst he is in camp," aid then to stay on because living is cheaper. But city life has its disad vantages. The furnished room is not the equivalent of home, and whilst one honors these women, and with justice, as a class, one also realises that there is no class without a per centage of w...
Deutschland's Voyage. CAPTAIN KONIG'S BOOK. Unterseeboten. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
Deutschland's: .Voyage. CAPTAIN KONiG"'Si9OOK. Unterseeboten. Very interesting, if you omit to be irritated by. its smug German com placency, is Captain Konig's account of his voyage. across the Atlantic in the submairine trader Deutschland. The. name was really a prophecy of Germany's -.proper place-Deutschland unter Alles. But to this German and his adventures. "A submarine is as full of humors as a woman, and as tricky as a race horse. She is...as sober as a tramp steamer, and as trustworthy as a tug. She has good qualities and not good. She can be as pliant as a racing yacht, and as pig-headed as a mule. And she only obeys him who knows her down to. her smallest technicalities." Konig describes how he observed a "disguised merchantman"--one of his own country's treacherous raid ers, probably,, taking his craft for a British submarine: "Hardly has the 'neutral' ship ob served our movements and noticed that we are submerging than she twists -round with a jerk. As we submerge we. c...
IF ONLY WE COULD [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
IF ONLY WE COULD Have teeth like the girl in the tooth powder ads.; Enjoy a smoke as much as the man in the tobacco ads.; Be as warm as the family , in the steam-radiator ads.; Find what we want as; quickly as the man in the filing-cabinet ads.;. Step as spiryly as the man in the rubber heel ads.; Shave as smoothly as the man in the. shaving-soap ads.; Have as fine a complexion as the girl in the face-cream ads.; Travel as comfortably as the people in the steamship ads.; And be promoted as rapidly as the man in the correspondence school ads.; What a wonderful world this would be! There was a time before Prime-Min isteir W. M. Hughes became known to famnie as a' politician, when he- mended umbrellas in the vicinity of the Syd ney wharves, sold books, and did all sorts of odd jobs. He tells in his own caustic way how Providence once sig nally smiled upon him. He found an old signboard with "locksmith" on it in bold letters, and hung it outside his modest dwelling in the hope that it m...
A FEMALE FORT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
A FEMALE FORT. Wife: What is the difference be tween a fort and a fortress, Theo dore? Husband: A fortress, my love, would be harder to silence. Mr. A. Golden Fleece, of Millionutu Station, Dilberry Downs, Hawke's Bay, drove up in his 50 horse power Diavolo car to the Squatters' Club, Na pier, angrily commanded his chauffeur to stop sniffing, ran explosively up the steps, was assisted out of .his sealskin coat and golden goggles by an obse queous hall servant, and forced his way into the smoking room. There were present Mr. H. Merino, of Crutchings Park; Mr. P. Cross-Bred, from Locksanpieces (100,000 acres), and the Hon. Mr.- B. Bow-Shears, Bul lankau Beaches (205,000 acres). Mr. Golden Fleece subsided into a green morocco saddlebacked chair, savagely bit .the end off a villar-y-villar cigar (those at £1 2/6 for five inches), call ed for "deux vermoths et undemi tasse d'eau d'or," and roared, "What's this the Government's swinging on to us now? Not a single penny over £150,000 did I...

Human Being Management. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
Human Being- Management The engendering of a. good feeling between. employer ,and employes is something well. worth striving for, and this is how a large factory-own.r pre-: sented the. matter to an assembly of exeCutives; . 'The' tirduble -with .you men is that you; are executives, and not human beings.. You are so swelled, up by the title of general manager,' or superin tendenit. or somnething of that kind, that you get entirely out of touch with the common, everyday human being; and, worse than that, you get together in boards. of directors and put across things as a body that everyone of you would be ashamed to do as an indi vidual. You don't want to kick the man, but get at the real cause of his condition, and put an end to that. We have, never had any serious labor trouble,", he said. "We deal with every one of our employes as a human being; and in order to do this you can't .lose sight of the fact that you are human beings, too.. I never yet investigated a strike but what I f...
Melbourne Grows Older. 70th BIRTHDAY LAST WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
-elbourne Grows Oler. 70th .BIRTHDAY LAST WEEK. Melbourne was 70 years old. on June 23, and, in- the course of its -prosper ous history, its citizens have listened to the far-off sounds of many tragic struggles in the settled parts of the older and 'distant world. The city which has never known aught of a foreign invasion or heard a gun fired in.anger has yet supplied many thou sands of adventurous spirits to make up the armies of the Empire in offen sive and defensive wars abroad. The spirit which prompted- these enter=: prises has found expression also in mercantiie adventures6 df'-great mag nitude at. home. Melbourne business men have never, hesitated: t =take. a fair risk for the achievement . of a great result.- -Their optimism ran to excess-in the days of the land boom,. but the over-confidence then exhibited in the potential prosperity of the city was only a little in advance of its time. The land boom itself, although productive of many evils, developed a great financial tal...
