Let's Write a Letter [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 10 November 1939
Let's Write a Letter SIR JOHN HARRIS, K.B.E., M.L.C Minister for Education, Melbourne. Sir,-When approached recently by a representative body of Aus tnalian women requesting that free meals be provided for under nourished school children in the industrial suburbs you are reported to have said that it would) be derogatory:to the independent spirit of Aus tralians to come down to the' stage where the Education Department provided meals for the children it taught. Which reply consists of clap.trap and rubbish. In the first place, we do not remember any departmental protest against the "threepenny", movement started in manysuburbs as an aid to the. schoo.p adoptioon tplan Te-h people-'trhoo'devoted-time-to th-t :scheme were indeed charitably minded,.but misguided.. The plain facts were that working people were asked to contribute threepence to. help 'give some poor little kiddie a decent feed. To us, the whole scheme was revolting, degrading, and smelt strongly of the soup kitchen. A ch...
The Wrong Angle [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 10 November 1939
The, Wrong Angle ----000 In one of his first broadcast speeches after the declaration of war Prime Minister. Menzies urged the Australian people to "carry on." Put in plain language, he asked peolpe to live normally-to spend and trade as in peace times-whilst the Government 'prepared the machinery of war. Some demurred at this. But as the weeks have passed, the wisdom of Mr Menzies' words are becoming daily more apparent. But unfortunately his message has fallen on deaf ears so far as a very large section of the community is concerned. They are not carrying on.. They are, economising, and cutting out expenditure which would have ordinarily been made in peace times. These people are doing their country immeasurable harm. Business is languishing, and the ranks of the unemployed are being increased daily. The upshot of this will 'be a general feeling of unrest throughout the country, something to be deplored at any time, but *particularly when the Empire is involved in a war with a str...

NETTING SCHNAPPER (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 10 November 1939
NETTING SCHNAPPER (To the Editor) Sir,-As there are no answers to my questiong regarding the netting of schnapper, and the" alleged damage done by nets to so-termed spawning grounds, I put it to those persons who suggest that "the schnapper enters the bay to .spawn" that they write and talk upon a subject of which they have not the smallest spark of know jledge. In the first place,, the schnapper sheds what is known as pelagic spawn, or, .in other words, a floating spawn. Never under any circum stances does It bury its spawn. Nor do these pelagic spawns, which 'are not adhesive, ever become attached to any roclk, bombora marine growths or other sunken objects. Again, the .spawns of the bream family, of which the schnapper is one, are always shed, that each matured egg floats about .quite independentri of its fel lows.. Not by any chance is the ma ture spawn in "bunch" form. Schnap per spawns are very oily and light, therefore they cannot sink, True it is .that the schnapper enters ....

STATION CONGESTION ,, ; (To the Editor) Sir,-The n'ew entrance to the Frankston railway. :station is, I am sure;, a great improvement ifor those lucky enou?gh to get within- cbo-ee `'f . it. f For eight years iI have :been calling; for;'; lmyi'hutband3 ath the' 'statlori at 8 Sp.mi;, but it has 'now. 'become such a probiem as to where' to park whilst 'awaiting the arrival of the train that I am beginning td doubt the conveni ence of train travel for business men going up to the city each day. Every evening the entrance is conm :iletely blocked by six service cars and four enormous buses, thus leav Ing no possibility for the private car =to ,get aniywhere near.
