"LAVENDER DAY." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 6 July 1917

'LAVENDER DAY.' The 'Lavender . Day' effort has been most gratifying to its promoters, the Soldiers' Church' of England Help Society, and its many friends. At the time of going to press the amount re ported was over £5000, and still more to come. Of this sum the street collection' in Brisbane amounted to £1035, the largest street collection ever taken in Brisbane for any purpose whatever. The work of this excellent society has received ready support from generous public, not only on 'Lavender Day,' but throughout its existence. In the farthest parts of Queensland relatives of soldiers are to be found who are full of gratitude to the society for its care of the boys in camp. 'Doubtless this had much to do with the unhesitating response on 'Lavender Day,' as well as with the sup port given to the society, as shown in its annual balance-sheet. The 'Lavender Day' contributions are chiefly intended to help work at the. front, where the Church of England lias over 1000 huts, marquees, tra...

THE ENTENTE LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 6 July 1917

THE ENTENTE LANGUAGE. | Nothing is more unwise than trying to help out an Entente speaker by giving him a few words of Fiench. There wa3 an officer who wanted a box of drawing pine and sent his servant out to buy them. Left to himself and relying on hits proper Entente that servant would cer tainly have returned with the drawing pins. But. the officer, who spoke French fluently, thought he would facilitate the shopping by telling the servant before hand that punaises is the French for drawing-pins. The servant returned with a box of Heating's insect powder. Punaue is also the French for a bug, and as the shopman could not believe the man was trying to buy the actual in sects he sold him what it seemed reason able' to suppose he wanted. There is a story told of an English soldier w.ho wished to marry a French girl. It seems a wild kind of story, but it will be credible to anyone who knows the extraordinary range and capacity of the Entents language. 'I suppose,' said the officer whom...

Separation Allowances. THE AMENDED REGULATIONS. MELBOURNE, July 2. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 6 July 1917

Separation Allowances. THE AMENDED REGULATIONS. MELBOURNE, July 2. The Minister for Defence ('Senator Pearce) to-day made available the amended regulations about separation allowances. 'Mothers, as well as the wives, of soldiers are to be permitted to earn additional money, and the allow ances of Is 5d a day is also to be made to an invalid father who is a widower, to a daughter who is keeping house for her widowed father, to a sister who is a widow and is solely dependent upon the soldier, and to women who stand in the same relationship to a soldier as a wife. The allowance of a day is to be given to brothers and sisters under 16 years solely dependent upon the soldier, to the children under 16 of a soldier's sister who is a widow and of whom the soldier is the sole support, and to children who, after a separation has 'been entered into, are still maintained by the soldier, to adopted children (subject to the depart mental approval), and to illegitimate children of a soldier who ar...

War-time Prohibition. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 6 July 1917

War-time Prohibition. (By Principal Malyon, F.S.Sc.) A .Sydney newspaper of authority affirms that 'one result of the war in Australia has been the linking-up, the federating, of the temperance forces of the Commonwealth,' and as a result a demand is to be made for prohibition of the liquor traffic during the war. In a remarkable book just published, entitled 'Defeat?' by Arthur Mee and Rev. J. Stuart Holden, M.A. (Smith, and Pater son, Albert-street, sixpence net), are two arresting and trenchant paragraphs which should burn their meaning into every brain and heare capable of under standing the signs of the times. Here is one: — 'There is not in these (British) islands a man with mind so dead that he does not see what all tho world can see. We stand confronted with all the powers of scientific devilry. All Europe rocks and reels. From morn ing to night, from night till morning, the manhood of the nations is marching to its grave. Not for the first time in this 1 island's story, aff...

SIGNALLER TOM SKEYHILL AND THE RED CROSS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 6 July 1917

SIGNALLER TOM SKEYHILL AND THE RED CROSS. . 'Listening to Signaller Tom -SkeyhilI as he stood in the South Brisbane Town Hall and addressed a gathering of Red ?Cross workers on Red Cross work, the thought came to one of the wonder of these Australian boys — our returned soldiers — the maturity of their ideas, their realisation of the significance of life. Surely in the case of this boy the loss of his sight has quickened his per ceptions, broadened his views to an un usual extent, for it is only reasonable to suppose — those of us, at least, who be lieve in the law of compensation — that a tragic loss like his is in some way made up to him. (However it may be, the very youth of the speaker was the .gjreatest factor in his appeal to the workers to 'keep on working.' 'Three years ago,' he said, 'the two words 'Red Cross' meant nothing to me, and now they stand for all that is most sacred in my life.' And then he went on to cell as only one of them can of the tragedies and horrors of t...

THE PEACE CRANKS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917

THE PEACE CRANKS. Many people object to women taking any active part, save the recording of their votes, in Australian politics, and patriotic women who are prepared to go further than the men in endeavoring to force the eligibles to do their duty have , been the subject of very severe criticism. Further than that, they have had to put up with physical assault at the hands of female peace cranks who, as objects of utter, futility, would be hard to beat. The meeting convened by three patriotic women — Mesdames Paterson, Bushell, and Reid — to consider the question of petitioning Mr. Hughes to adopt drastic measures in dealing with eligibles was a meeting of women inspired with patriotic fervour. Most of them had lost relatives at the front or had relatives who are still fighting, and they claimed the right to discuss their affairs in their own way. The action of a small party of female pacifists attempting to deffect the patriots from the straight path of duty was in keeping with the...

THE CASE FOR CONSCRIPTION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917

THE CASE FOR CONSCRIPTION. ? Upon what was the case for conscrip tion in Australia built? Was it built upon the alleged need for 52,500 recruits in September last and 16,500 a month thereafter, or was it not really built upon the need for national organisation? The bulk of the arguments advanced during the campaign dealt mainly with the rein forcement side of the question, and it is quite true that from the viewpoint of reinforcements alone the case for con scription, insofar as it affects the five divisions already at the front, falls to the ground. But to be content with keeping five divisions up to full strength when the mother-country has had to build up fresh division after fresh division to keep the German off the Imperiad grass is not, to our way of thinking, doing everything which 'honor and safety demands.' If Australia can, under conscription, main tain eight or ten divisions in the field without seriously affecting the industrial outlook, she is not doing her duty to her ...

PLANE TESTIMONIAL FUND. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917

PLANE TESTIMONIAL FUND. Subscriptions for th& Plane Testimonial Fund continue to reach the hon. secre taries, Messrs. Rees and Shaw, at the National Political Council. The total money collected now approximates £350. Returned soldiers and other members of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League who are willing to help should forward their donation to the general secretary of the League, 331 Queen-street (opp. the Union Bank). Whenever a local authority asks for a grant from the Government to carry out some necessary work it invariably meets with the reply, 'No money.' To such a condition of bankruptcy has the Govern ment fallen, however, that it has still suf ficient cash left to enable it to give £3000 to a Minister's electorate for repairs to a school that can do without repairs for another ten years.

How Germany is Starving Herself AND YET BLAMING ENGLAND FOR IT. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917

How Germany is Starving Herself AND YET BLAMING ENGLAND FOR IT. As everyone knows, Germany, who, in . 1870, starved Paris into surrender, is shrieking aloud to mankind over the 'wickedness' of 'Great Britain in inter cepting food supplies to the Fatherland. Or, as Berlin puts it, 'Great Britain has barbarously and illegitimately set itself to deprive Germany of her military vic tory gained by lawful means by starving her women and children.' In reply, Mr. Gerard Fiennes cleverly shows 'the chief part of the blockade of Germany is that which she has imposed upon herself by going to war with the nations that sup plied her. Of her total imports of bread stuffs, from one-half to two-thirds came from Russia, Servia, Roumania, British India, Canada, and Australia, with whom she has made it unlawful or impossible for her to trade. Of her mea-t supply, all except a small quantity of bacon came similarly either from enemy countries or from countries unaffected by the block ade. The same is t...

The Currency Question. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917

The Currency Question. (By J. W. STRAWSON) Brown: But what are the banks going to do then? ;Smith: Carry on legitimate banking, and manage the financial department of commerce, for which they must be paid for their trouble by those whose business they transact. Brown: Then, according to your argu- j ment, you are opposed to interest, and contend that it is wrong? Smith: No. All that I contend is that the whole tendency of our commercial and financial system is in the direction of making it impossible to pay interest. You admit yourself that there is scarcely a business that will pay, and all your retrenchment can only make it more diffi-. cult by destroying the demand for com modities. Jones: It has always been contended that a monetary system must have a metallic basis, and I think you will find that unless- it has it will be a failure, and your remedy will be worse than the dis ease. ' 'Smith: It is all very well to make a statement, but to me your metallic basis lias no meaning. ...
