PROHIBITION OR TEMPERANCE? (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 December 1939
PROHIBITION OR TEMPERANCE? (To.the Editor) Sir,--Your splendid live articles ad vocating progress and exposing evils are greatly appreciated, also your fairngss in asking correspondents to state other aspects. Your letter to the Chief Secretary on the liquor question is timely because no one is satisfied with the present position. The first requisite for solving this question is clear definition of terms. Your otherwise fine article seems to be spoiled by words having varied meanings; for instance, "hotelkeeper," "prohibitionist," and "temperance." All should agreQ that there is "no better citizen in a town than a good hotelkeeper." But the next sentence, indicates that you give the word "hotelkeeper" the same meaning as "licensed victualler." Yet the fact is Indisputable that some of the best -hotels in Australia are non-licensed. Therefore, a town can have a "good hotelkeeper" who is not a "licensed 'victualler." Then you speak of temperance and prohibition as necessarily opposed....

. . . Down to the Sea in Ships [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 December 1939
... Down to the Sea in. Ships When one lb bursting with admiration for the pluck and daring of the men of the British Air Force and Navy for their exploits in this peculiar, war, one is apt to overlook a race of men whose deeds of bravery day after day equal, if not excel, those of their breed who have gone before. With the seven seas littered with mines by a desperate enemy, with submarines popping up in in the most unexpected places, and with the location of sea raiders a matter of mere conjecture, the men of the Mercantile Marine carry on. Their spirit, their indomitable courage, and their unostentation should make us proud that they belong to our race. To Britons steeped in the glowing history of past centuries when Britain's sailors were a race apart, fearing no foe, discovering new ter ritories, and building up a. commerce the greatest the world has ever known; the feats of 1939 give testimony that these stories have not been exaggerated. Day after day ships slip out of harbor...

Every lebter must bear the writer's name and address, not necessarily for-publication. Head correspondence. "Safety: Valve.") (To the Editor) Sir,-My attention 'has suddenly and forcibly been drawn to the fact that there is no apparent move to prevent a repetition of the disastrous results of the sudden ending of the last w,ar. I refer to the total unpre paredness of the nation for the large number of men suddenly dumped on tliq community without any Iprovision whatever having been made to absorb them. ,This must under'no circum stances, be allowed, to occur again. Although there is apparently no move to prepare for the sudden onding of .the war, immediate or remote, there is in fact-a very strenuous effort be ing made to arouse a feeling in the community that immediate steps be taken to prepare a scheme. As a matter of fact, there is actu ally an qx-Senator of the Fede...
Let's Write a Letter TO THOSE WHO RULE THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 December 1939
Let's Write a Letter oOo TO THOSE WHO RULE THE WORLD. Dear Madames. and Misses,-We men only think we run the show; you know that' old saying "the hands that rocks the cradle rules the world." That may not.be quite right. On second thought it Is an inapt quotation, because there is not a great deal of cradle-robking these days-which is just too bad for Australia. But, really, that is not) exactly what we want to talk to you about. And we do find it-difficult in putting into words What we want to say. You know, girls, it is so long since we wrote any of those letters, fairly oozing sex.appeal for which we were noted some twenty years ago. So, if there is more of the "Enclosed please'find final demand, etc.," tone about this instead of "You're the sweetest thing in crinolines south of the You Yangs," blame Anno Domini, the old villain. We really want to say as nicely as we can what an example you are setting to.the mere male in the matter of wbr efforts. What with Red Cross and'-War Co...
