CORRESPONDENCE. [Wo do not identify ourselves with tlw opinions expressed by correspondents under this bending.] Britain Will Not Let Bel gium Starve. To tlie Editor. Sir,-We have pledged our honor to restore Belgium. But Belgium is Dot a word-it is a people; and the Belgian people is starving. It we let it perish dur ing the process of restoration Jwe shall have grasped only the shadow of our task. Mr. Hoover, chairman of the neutral Commission for Relief in Belgium, and Mr. Francqui, chair man of the Committee in Brus sels, tells us that " at least a million and a half Belgians are now entirely destitute. With the rapid exhaustion of the meat and vegetable supplies, there will pro bably be, before harvest time, 2,500,000 Belgians who must bo fed and clothed solely by charity. The remaining 4,500,000 will get their pitiful daily allowance of bread through the Commission and will pay for it." And they add : " Will you help us to keep the destitute alive ?"

Yabba v. Naring Dip. Yabba travelled to Naring Dip to meet that team in oompetition. The roads were a quagmire-in an awful state, mud and water all the way.

The third quarter did not make matters any better for the home team, and they again failed to score, while Yabba notched a goal. In the final term staring bright ened up, and endeavored to make up the leeway, but the Yabba defence was too strong, and the ball was taken back, and Yabba added another goai and a point to their score.

The Australian Crayfish. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 1 July 1915
The Australian Crayfish. The Australian crayfish has many interesting characteristics, one of them being the entire absence of any sympathy for the modern feminist movement. The equality of the sexes is here combated with old-time ar dour. The cray feeds on kelp and as the tide rises the males make inshore to partake ol their meal, the fcmaleB waiting until their lords and Blas ters have fed and the tide has turn ed, when they ore permitted to come in and satisfy their appetites on what is left. This habit is built on the same plan as tho aborigine'3 treatment of his gin. The man feeds and the woman takes his leavings and is thantlul. The cray forms 110 family tics. The eggs, when they are laid, are kopt on the under side of the female's tail which is tucked up under her body, and there they live and develop until they hatch out. Directly this process is complete they float up until they form a part of the living organisms which lie 011 the surface of tho sea. Then they travel with ...

The Line Association. Devenish v. Lima. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 1 July 1915
Tlie Line Association. Devenish v. Lima. Devenish team were "at home" to Lima lads last Saturday, and though the former were not fully , represented, they succeeded in easily accounting for the visitors, the scores being Devenish 8 goals 17 behinds, Lima nil. The game was played in a very ' friendly spirit throughout, and was thoroughly enjoyed by play ers and supporters alike. Though the scores show that Devenish were much superior, the game was not altogether one-sided, and Lima kept pegging away, and although they failed to score, kept the home team going to the finish. Lima, it may be mentioned, is only a new team, and have some very good material, so that with a little more experience may be counted on to give a good account of themselves. Devenish were strengthened by the inclusion of some new players from the de funct Dookie and Thoona clubs, and should give the best of the other teams some tough games before the season is finished. The match was umpired by Mr. Pat Polly, and...

Within the next three .yearn between £300,000 and £100,000 will be spent in securing the forest against the devastating fires which have done so much injury in the past. Old decay ed and unmarketable timber will be cleared away and trees which com paratively soon wHl become a valu able asset, will be planted. The magnificent hospitality of the soil and climate is shown by the forest giants of Gippsland and the Euro pean ftiecimens which have grown no successfully at Macedon and Kern tree C.ully.

There has been a very serious de crease in supplies owing to the severe drought in Australia, but same would have had little effect upon prioes in a year of normal consump tion. The drouht has certainly beun a staggerer, but wo have not fully felt the effeots yet. The 191415 clip was a comparatively poor one, but not only will the coming clip show an enormous decrease in volume quite possibly 400,000 bales-but the general growth, soundross and char acter of the clip will be such as to 'make it one of the very worst clips, more especially from a producer'u point of view, ever shorn in Austra lia. With 25 per cent of their grown shoop dead, practically no lambs, and the surviving shutp outting, say, 2!b. of wool per head less than last season, the flock masters iu the southern half of Australia are indeed in an unenvi ...
