MUNITION WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917
V' MUNITION WORKERS. A v young woman came into the office of the R.S. and P.N.P. League the other day. She had a grievance, as lots of people have when they call on the secre tary. She was the wife of a man who had left Australia to go to England on munition-making. She complained that she had received no cash from her hus band for quite a long time. She could get no money from the Patriotic Fund, as no arrangements have been made by which the wives of Australian munition makers can receive assistance from the Patriotic Fund people. The only help , which the wives of these men .receive is £1 per week from the Commonwealth Government.- Children are entitled to 2s per week each, but the husbands, who are supposed to share in the responsi bility of keeping their wives and fami lies, in many cases deliberately shirk the liability. There is a growing suspicion, on that account, that some Australians have left and are leaving these shores on munition-making jobs merely to shirk their dome...
NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL AND INDUSTRIAL ASSOCIATION OF QUEENSLAND. BRISBANE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917
NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL AND IN DUSTRIAL ASSOCIATION OF QUEENSLAND. BRISBANE SHOW. The National Association calls atten tion to the fact that live stock entries close on Monday, 9th instant (late entries at double fees on Friday, 13th), and entries for wines, warm and dairy, api culture, schools' and women's industries on Friday, 13th instant, and asks that early entries be made to facilitate the publication of the catalogue. This year's show promises many new and interesting features, and as the ad ditional money presented for the ring attractions amounts to several hundred pounds, the trotting and jumping events will be above the average ' excellence. The £100 additional prize-money for farm produce should assure keen competition. ! Quite a host of prominent southern visitors have promised to be present at the opening, and will include Mr. S. Hor dern (president of the R.A. (Society of N.S.W.) and Colonel Merritt (president of ^he R.A. Society, Victoria).
Crumbs of Comment. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917
Crumbs of Comment. The Returned Soldiers and Patriots' 'National Political League has, since its inception, been subjected to a storm of criticism from its opponents, political and otherwise. Most of the criticism has been unfair, and has been used from mo tives of self-interest. One of the most unfair methods of belittling the League lias been the publication, from time to time, of statements holding that the League is open to any and everybody. That is a downright lie, as everyone who has a knowledge of the League's con stitution is aware. * »? * * The R.S. and P.N.P. League is open to the following sections of the community: —Returned soldiers and sailors, women who have relatives in the A.I.F., rejected men, men over military age who have sons at the front, men discharged from - A.I.F. camps. Eligible men are not ac cepted ' as members. That we emphati cally deny, and we challenge anyone to prove that the League has a member who cannot provide a valid excuse for non enlistment. ...
ELIGIBLES IN FEDERAL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917
ELIGIBLES IN iFEDERAL SERVICE. The Central Extcutive of the Returned (Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League, at their last meeting, resolved as follows: — 'That this meeting of the executive council of the Returned Sol- , diers and Patriots' National Political l-ieague expresses its pleasure at tne ac tion taken by the Federal Government in giving preference to returned soldiers in the Commonwealth public service, and at the decision not to retain the services of eligible single men in the Common wealth public service if suitable returned soldiers are available to fill their places.''
A House a Day. BUILDINGS FOR SOLDIERS AND WIDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917
A House a Day. BUILDINGS FOR SOLDIERS AND WIDOWS. On Sunday next those of the Brisbane public who care to take a trip to Enog gera will witness a sight which will be unique to most of them. Soon after day break on that day a small army of car penters, plumbers, &c., will invade a piece of ground given by Mrs. Bentley, of London-road, Clayfield. The workers will be all voluntary, and they will, to the accompaniment of a whirring kinema camera, set about erecting a cottage in one day. When Sergeant-Major Runcorn (re cruiting-officer) and Mr. Jack Munro (Stadium manager) got the germ of the idea for building cottages for returned wounded soldiers or widows of soldiers they found their main difficulty was the securing of permission to collect for the business. However, Mr. 'Coyne, who is chairman of the Anzac Division, gave per mission, and a beat-up of the city resulted in a collection of every piece of timber and other material required for the build ing of a small cottage. Me...
THE FALSE PATRIOT. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917
THE FALSE PATRIOT. (By SIR OWEN iSEA'MAN, Editor London 'Punch.') He came, obedient to the call; He might have shirked, like half his mates, Who, while their comrades fight and fall, Still go to swell the football gates. And you, a patriot in your prime, You waved a flag above his head, i And hoped he'd have a high old time, And slapped him on the back and said : 'You'll show 'em what we British are. Give us your hand, old pal, to shake' — And took him round from bar to bar, And made him drunk— for England's sake. That's how you helped him. Yesterday, Clear-eyed and earnest, keen and hard, He held himself the soldier's way — And now they've got him under guard. That doesn't hurt you; you're alright; ? Your easy conscience takes ho blame; But he, poor boy, with morning's light, He eats his heart out, sick with shame. What's that to you? You understand Nothing of all his bitter pain; You have no regiment to brand; You have no uniform to stain; No vow or service to abuse, No pledge to ...
France's Day. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917
France's Day. Entendez-vows dans les campagnes, Mugir ces feroces soldats; lis viennent jusque dans nos bras, Egorger nos fils, nos compagnes! Aux armes, citoyens! Formez vos bataillons! Marchons! 'It is curious now long the song of La Marseillaise' lias held its power,' says phillip Gihbs. 'It has been like a leit motif through all the drama of this war in France, through the spirit of the French people, waiting patiently for vic tory, hiding their tears for the dead, con soling their wounded and their cripples, and giving their youngest and their man hood to the god of war. What is the magic in this tune? . . It seemed to me that France sang 'La Marseil laise' — the strains of it rose from every wayside station — and that out of its graveyards across those dark hills and fields, with a thin, luminous line on the far horizon, the ghosts of slain soldiers rose to sing it to those men who were going to fight again for liberty.' THE SOUL OF PARIS. And so, on this day upon which we do ...
THAT I.W.W. ART UNION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917
THAT I.W.W. ART UNION. If Mr. Ryan did not authorise the hold ing of an art union in aid of the wives and children of the I.W.W. convicts, who was the Attorney-General ' who, it is al leged, gave permission for the holding of the art union? Was it the Attorney General of Togoland, or were the tickets authorised by some fictitious Attorney General in the Justice Department? Ryan does not know' who gave the neces sary permission, or says he doesn't, so the second supposition may possibly be right. In his speech to the Queensland Par liament on Monday the Governor gave the timely assurance that 'Queensland will not lessen her efforts and sacrifices until victory for the common cause has I been achieved.' Sounds as though it had been written t-y T. J. ryan, or at his dicta tion, so empty is the sentence of all sin cerity. How can Queensland, or the Government of Queensland, continue their efforts and sacrifices when volun tary recruiting is becoming a by-word? What authority have the pe...
DON'T HURT THEIR FEELINGS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 July 1917
DON'T HURT THEIR FEELINGS. Poor, delicate, thin-skinned eligibles! They must not be told that they are shirkers, slackers, or cold-footers. No, indeed; they must be treated kindly, and told that they are as courageous as lions; that the Anzacs who stormed Gallipoli heights are as babes and sucklings compared to them. Otherwise they may get insulted and refuse to enlist. Bah! When will the Federal Government quit this tomfoolery and get to business? Freedom, demo cracy! These be empty phrases to the selfish, tough-skinned crowd who are trading on the weakness of a Prime Min ister who has never shown statesman like qualities yet. If it were not for the newspapers we would never suffer except from what happens to us. As it is, with the help of the papers we suffer pretty steadily from what doesn't happen.

From Near and Far Wattle Day. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 July 1917
| g From Near and Far g I * (By 'VERITAS.') % »- Wattle Day. Such a day of sunshine, soft breezes, and blue skies; of golden wattle, pretty., girls, and collection boxes! The cam paign began in the suburbs, where girls with posies of wattle and badges which one might 'buy for Is were stationed at the railway stations. * V * . * The Badges. The badges were very dainty sprays of wattle hand-painted on ribbon of various colors, with 'Wattle Day' and 'For France' above and below. * # 5j: 'Courier' Stall. In the street the interest prin cipally centred round the 'Courier' vestibule, where the tricolor and wattle made a gay combination of color. * * * Decorated Cars. The procession of decorated cars from the Tivoli Theatre was the feature of the day. Led by a lorry, on whicli, in a perfect bower of wattle, were grouped the 'Wattle Queen' and her retinue, the procession passed down Adelaide-street into Queen-street, and through the Valley. 'Mrs. Watson's first prize car was a delightful id...

The Currency Question. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 July 1917
The Currency Question. (By J. W. STRAWSON). Jones: It would mean that we should have to cart about great bundles of paper when we wanted to make a pur chase. Smith: I don't see that you would have to carry about any more paper than be fore. It is just as easy to print the figure '5' as it is the figure '1,' and ten £5' notes are as easily counted as ten £l's. It is only making '5' the unit instead of the '1.'
