A SMALL UNIONIST [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
A\ SMALL UNIONIST Billie is a little Digger, modelling himself in all his ways and works upon the returned soldiers who work with and live round his father's cubicle. Although he did not make his appea rance until a decent interval had elapsed after his father had won thea war and returned home, yet he knows everything about campaigning and its concomitant evils -- sergeant-majors, MAls.P., fatig-ues, C.1., shells, and bul lets. Hle almso knows how to express his opinion of them in suitable words. One day he drew his tather up into the scrub and said cni.identially, as man to man, "Dad, do let's have a little swear up here. ;ura doesn't like it at home."

ROUNI THE BEEHIVE Song of Remembrance Today Is the anniversary of the declaration of war. 'Twas damwn, and the grey light Was chasing the long night, The dull khaki line laying bare: Though blood-stained and batterew (In parts almost shattered), It held as we sent up our prayer. Men passed on to their God P'atrician and clod Theirs to die; ours only to care. So they gave of their all, To answer the Call, For the Flag of the Empire was there.. He lies in the quiet shade, His life's account paid To the Nation, to you and to me. He came from the South land, He came from England. He came from all lands o'er the sea.

Tragedy In The Garden [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
Tragedy In The Garden Once on a time I prayed for rain To water my little plot; Now I'm praying for sunshine again, I ever' wish It were hot. I wanted my ground all nice and softl So that I could plant my' trecq, And ever since then it's come from aloft Till I sink nearly up to my knees. Keep using the hoe, says "The News" garden bloke To keep the soil sweet and open, 13ut to swim for that hoe to my shed is no loke, So I sit in my house, just mopin'. I've only had a glimpse of my plants, Just once or twice a week, I've forgot their names and the labels have gone Down the Patawalonga Creek. I'm not a really bad tempered man, Put this w~e-k my temper rose When a. fellow pulled up in a covered van And wanted to sell me a hose. I buried him deep In a muddy bed, In a spirit of fiendish g!ee. And I stuck in a. label by his heal; To remember-one--nine-two--three. -F. F.

ALIENS' RUSH 20,000 For America (UNITED SERIVCE.) NEW YORK, August 2. The terrific influx of aliens was re sumed today, when 16 European steamers arrived, carrying 20,000 pas sengers, of whom more than 15,000 are aliens. The docks are hopelessly con gested with a shouting, excited crowd of relatives and friends, numbering 23,000.

This dangerous practice almr:;t resulted in a collision with an Italian steamor. A Portuguese vescl developed engine trouble and arrived late. All the pas -engers were order to be returned to Portgual. The immigrants represented .5 nations.
