THE Quambatook Times. OUR MOTTO: "Truth is great, and will prevail." WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 25 November 1914

OUR MOTTO : " Truth is great, and will prevail* WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25. 1914. The Progress Association will hold a meeting to-morrow (Thurs day) evening in the Mechanics' Hall. There is a lot of business to be transacted, and it is hoped that a good attendance will be present. The beautification of our town is a question which should have the attention of the Association. The present, per haps, is not an opportune time to discuss a matter of this kind, but it takes timeto work out a scheme, and probably before such is per fected the season will have im proved. We have a nice reserve in the town which could be easily improved, and with a little ju dicious expenditure this place could be made one of the beauty spots of the town. Seasons like the present, fortunately, do not occur very often, and usually j there is plenty of water in the river to give the place a good background. A sports ground for Quambatook has been a ques tion which has occupied the minds of the townspeople for yea...

Correspondence. [The Editor wishes it to be understood that he does not necessarily endorse opinions expressed by Correspondents under this heading.] THE~WAR. Blankets. Wanted. An Appeal to Every Family in Quambatook and District. [To the Editor Times.] Sir,—As many farmers and others have not seen the appeal in the Mel bourne Press for blankets for our troops I venture to draw attention to it through your columns.—The appeal fs made by the Red Cross Society, and the facts related must touch the heart of every patiiotic Australian. The facts are that the British Government can not supply blankets fast enough to the troops who are in the fighting line. The woolllen mills are working ni-ht and day, but are utterly unable to supply the demand. Three and four men are sharing one blanket between them, and many soldier3 have not even a fourth share. These soldier3 are in many cases fighting in the trenches up to their waists in water and in snow and sleet—exposed to the icy chill of a Eur...
