BILLJIMS TROUBLES VETERANS FORGOTTEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 20 October 1917
STpouefo VETERANS FORGOTTEN. Lone I'iner: The fact la tuat rue norclty lias worn off it, and the boys who have been in the fight »luoe the ?tart— and there »ro some of them yet— are pretty nearly forgotten by all except their own kin. Ouu time we used tl hear nothing else talked of but the old boys, tho veteran* but now Uie reinforcements are Betting all the good tilings, and the old hands are looked on something likt the regulars of the British Army— men who tliould be there, «s a matter ot course. How instiy people— or asjociatlons— have sent special packages for the veterans, to be delivered, thl» coming Christmas* It's ? bit late to a-k tbe question, but let itjrp forth. ALL ANZACS.

AMBITIOUS YOUTH I The small boy watched the Mayor of Muddle combe as he sat at his parents' dinner table with rpund eyes of wonder. Every movement of the civic gentleman's knife and fork was noted. Then suddenly the child gasped out : ? 'Ugh ! I v wish I was a mayor!' The mayor beamed. 'Really ?' he said. 'And why do you wish . you was a mayor like me ?' 'Then I wouldnt get smacked if. I ate things with my knife ;' said the small boy innocently
AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS IV.—RANDWICK PUBLIC SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 20 October 1917
AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS JPT.— RANDWICK PUBLIC SCHOOL. Last week we visited the public school at Randwick. It is a fine big building, with a generous playground brightened by flower-beds. Talking of patriotic affairs, the headmaster explained that, this last War Chest Day hap pening during a holiday week, the children were now sending in their contributions. The Randwick children given direct contributions, and raffles, bazaars, and other indirect methods of money-raising are not employed. The chil dren either get money from parents or friends, or else give their own weekly pence. A rough calculation shows that Randwick School has. given £500 to different war funds up ! to date, and, in addition, they have partly fur nished a room of the Randwick Military Hos pital. The school's honor roll-board shows 174 names of old boys and teachers fighting at the front. Bravo, Randwick !
OUR LETTER BOX [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 20 October 1917
OUR LETTER BOX Florenton (Tomora) writes : 'jfijnt Bee,-I want to knew jf it is possible to tacotnc an engineer without previously matriculating? I think we learn such a lot of unnecessary things at school, and to inatric. one is obliged to work away at subjects which are of no use uftcnvards. Don't you think I'd get along better if 1 went right away into the practical Bide of the thins V' (If you ore only aiming at engine-driving, become an engine stoker or start at some oilier occupation at the bottom of tin- ladder right away, and Iu time von -wil attain the heights of your ambition. But for civil or mining engineering,' where a University degree lias 4o be obtained, matriculation is, to my knowledge, neoes sary.

C. J. DENNIS: HIS GLUGS A CLEVER BOOK OF VERSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 20 October 1917
C. J. DENNIS: HIS GLUGS .'a clever book of verse. Mr. C. J. Dennis' new book of verse, The Glugs of Gosh, is not easy .verse of sentiment and the emotions cunningly wanned up. It is deeper and better stuff, though at a first glance it may seem livelier and more trivial. This new book in rich in clever, allusive stuff, with a sound heart of generous philosophy in it There is breezy social satire, compact of thought. And there is much excellent verbal music. To our thinking, one good Glug is worth a score of Ginger Micks' and smooth Doreens. Mr. Dennis has got right away from the preachy-preach'iness that has paid him thus far so well. He gives m in place of that the Ecntle humor of a tolerant man of the world and a keen lover of humanity. That part of the publisher's notice on the cover that essays to explain the allegory and lay it out stiff and stark in its dry bones can with advantage be skipped, since it merely serves to fog the pros pect. You can construe or interpret the alle E...

IN LONDON. Arthur H. Adams. Albout me leagues of houses lie, above me crim, and straight, and high 'They climb ; the terraces lean up like long grey reef* against the sky. Packed tier on tier, the people dwell ; each narrow, hollow wall is full ; : \A.nd in 'that hive of honeycomb, remote and high, I have one cell. ' ' . ...

IN THE LIMELIGHT LATEST THEATRICAL GOSSIP BY SUZANNE. Baby Mine. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 20 October 1917
^^~TN~T;H-E~— S LATEST THEATRICAL GOSSIP BY SUZANNE. JJaby Mine. Baby Mine is Beatrice Holloway, and Bea trice Hplloway ia Baby Mine, and so much of cither as isn't the other is satisfactory, more or less. The Mirror never had suspected that Miss Holloway was capable of such excellent work as she puts into this farce. To start with, she looks the right thing— a dear little snoodling wife, who has depended on the sexual N lure to pull her through all her difficulties, tide litr overall her rough places, make all things come right in the end ; and who Is genuinely distressed when, at a crisis, the scheme ceases ,to work. Confusion About Babies. Otherwise the farce depends for its fun on a ?wealth of ^confusion about babies. The fun is often forced, and only good acting can get it over. Miss Holloway's acting is so consistently and absolutely good that all the funmaking suc ceeds. A Reputation Established. She looks sweet, talks sweetly, is sweet.
