Do It Yourself! [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 28 February 1941
Do It Yourself! jpAR too great a burden is being placed on many women of Albury and district, Who are members of various - organisations sucli as . the Red Cross, W.V.S. and V:A.D., by other bodies of the town. Each of these organisations has its own duties, arduous duties that mean many hours of work, yet other bodies, particularly sporting organisations, which decide to organise functions for patriotic funds, often expect these patriotic women to carry the greater proportion of the work oy contracting stalls, providing atternoon tea, ana selling tickets. I ; ; Surely organisations that assist these patriotic bodies can find sufficient workers ..among their own. members to underr take 'this type of work, and relieve the burden of these already overworked patriotic workers. Efforts for these patriotic bodies should be without strings and should be entirely the efforts of the organisation conducting the function. How much better it is to be able to say, 'The amount raised has been: e...
Australians On Guard In Far East [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 28 February 1941
Australians 'On Guard In Far East ?'THE arrival of our troops in Singapore has -impressed upon Australians more' than anything else, the seriousness of the war, position. Despite the glorious victories of our soldiers in the Middle East, we have adopted complacent attitude towards affairs generally. Now, how ever, with- the tension increasing dn the Far East, we have been made to feel, with the presence of our boys, there, the closeness of the. conflict. Divergence of Australian troops to Malaya has been made necessary by the threats and bluster from Japan, who boasts of her partnership with the Axisl Powers in Europe. With the backing that will assuredly come from America if Japan openly attacks any part of the Far East, the Aus tralians will be ready to checkmate any move that might be made. Whether Japan will openly throw in her lot with Germany and Italy by an attack in the Far East will probably depend upon any success ? that Hitler and Mussolini meet with in the future. The fa...
