A ROADS "BORED." AND A SUBURBAN GROUCH. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 December 1920

A ROADS 'BORED.' - ? yj- ? ? ? AND A SUBURBAN GROUCH. (To the Editor). Sir,— If you can spare space in your in teresting paper, The Mirror, for this scribble, I will ask you to put the stops and commas in- their correct places, for mv education is like the Maylands roads — sadly neglected— and, like the roads, never had a pro per foundation. '* . * I have read in the 'West Austra-* Han' that the chairman of the Roads Board said that he was pleased with the progress made Great Scott! What sort of a man is he to be pleased to see houses in the middle of a lake and a road three feet under water! Was he pleased to see the mud and water at the comer of Kennedy-street and Railway-parade, and the water be ing pumped out of Ports' timber mill on to the footpaths? Is iic '' pleased that in the winter the rats- ' payers are walking in mud and slush the whole length of Railway-' parade, and in fine weather in sand and dust ankle deep? Is he pleased with the condition of CaraJ^ridge street, whe...

Faulty Couplings some Divorce Philosophy [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 December 1920

Faulty Couplings Some Divorce PiiiosoplHi Frea tiios. wauer n.i.a. The best knowledge of the human side of marriage was displayed by Mr. T. Walker, M.LA., on the recent Amending Act to the divorce laws we already possessed. Some of the 'old women' of. the House reckoned divorce had been made 'too easy' — because the war delirium resulted in thousands of silly weddings and thousands of quick rebounds for re lief from uncongenial partners. We give the following excerprs from Mr. Walker's speech, which strikes us as being sound and well considered : Hon. T. Walker (Kanowna): At the risk of being greatly misunder stood, I am going to oppose the sec ond reading of this Bill. I oppose it partly for the reason given by the member for Yilgarn, that there has been no proof whatever, or evidence of any kind, that it is necessary, or that the Bill we passed 12 months ago has been a failure or has done any harm. There is a great confu sion, apparently, in the minds of some members as to the cau...

Public Hospitals ORDERLIES AT £85 A YEAR! GREAT SOUTHERN COM PLAINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 December 1920

Public Hospitals ? ^^ ? ? ORDERLIES AT £85 A YEAR! GREAT SOUTHERN COM PLAINTS. We have received several com plaints from people associated with- ' hospitals on the G.S.R. and there abouts. These institutions appear to be run on parsimonious lines in so far as concerns the staff We had a similar experience in Perth of late years, but it turned out that the parsimony was brought about by the secretary, who pinched 'every available copper,' -and even the ? staff's overtime. Inquiries made show that in thia class of hospital an orderly — its a wonder they don't become disor derly — works under conditions some- , thing like this: Hours, 630 a.m. to 7 1 pjn.; pay, £85 per annum; one 'half- 4 day week off; likely to be called on 1 at any hour through the . night; 7 sometimes out of bed 2 or 3 hours during the night ; no overtim3 al lowed; no extra pay Sundays; sup posed to handle lunatics or delirious patients, etc.; quarters, uniform, etc., provided, but in case of mar ried men they must ...

The Coming Crash Profiteers staid From under Bank Overdrafts to be Pared [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 December 1920

The Coming Crash Profiteers Stall From under 1 BfliK overt roHs to fc€ Pare! 1 It was Abe Lincoln, somewhat of a statesman and seer in his day — a man who looked further ahead than to-morrow's .breakfast— who, at the conclusion of the murderous Civil War promulgated the great doctrine that— / 'The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy pre sent. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case ' is new, so we must think anew and act anew.' Egged on by our Nationalist 'statesmen,' . however, Australia dis regarded the sage advice quoted above. Her sham statesmen bor rowed and spent and rioted in lux ury as never before. Who was Lin coln, anyhow? 'Australia will be there,' they yelled in derision. And shrewd judges replied, 'Yes, at the pawnshop/' 'Nothing else matters. Let us win the war,' yelled the sool ers in return. But the rotten old war has passed on to the bloody pages of history, and Australia finds herself insolvent a...

The Boss to Work! Nover Strike Smashing Scheme [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 December 1920

T*ie Boss to Work ! Nflfe Strike SMskiai Selene ThVeats have been bandied about that the employers in the catering line have devised a plan of action to enable business to be carried on in the event of a dislocation owing to the deadlock which has been reached with the employees' union. The idea is to pool their efforts, and themselves ' work one or two large Hay-street establishments. This idea is certainly preferable to and less dangerous than employing 'scab' labour, for the experience will /Irwt'ri-focc An. enmo s\t -f-Via am. ployers good, though we have our own opinions regarding its success as a strike-breaking measure.

Flotsam and Jetsam From Here There and Everywhere [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 December 1920

Flotsam and Jetsam From Here TKere and Everywhere One of the first things to catch tne eye in travelling is a cinder. The girl who is too good is gener ally too good to be true! A peculiar word is 'debt.' The more it is contracted the bigger it grows. Sweethearts are sometimes called dreams because .they rarely come true. The 'Hun' is down and out, so we're told. And the men. who outed him are down and out, too, so wliat about it? On the world's stage every woman is a star performer to at least one man. 'What shall we do with our boys?' asks a rural sheet. Well, that is a question every young girl ought to be able to answer. If your boy is a pushful customer, and out of work, send him along to sell The Sunday Mirror. Two of our lads made 50s. each last week end. .'Eat, drink, and be bilious, for to morrow we will have no butter,' seems like the refrain of a margar ine-profiteer. The profiteers will be demobilised soon — the impending financial crash will involve 'em like Samson's fa...

This is the version of the -paper from the Pacific slope: — Washington, Oct. 14. — ^'Seal a la Americaine' may grace the menu card of many a famous restaurant in the near future. Also appetising forms* of 'horse d'ouvre,' 'rabbit steak' and 'kid a la Newberg1] may so appear. Such, indeed, is the cheering information gleaned from some recent experiments conducted by the office of home economics, U.S. Department or Agriculture, and set forth at length in this month's issue of the Journal of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry. The experiments were tried out with a view to ascertaining the amount of nourishment (protein, fats, etc.), digestibility and taste possessed by these unusual varie ties of meat as compared with the more common cuts. The conclusion was that the food value of all four fully equals that of more widely...

This demand, in itself, is caddish, currish, and contemptible to the last degree. It would be hard to imagine anything meaner from Mrs. Grundy herself. But the Common wealth Government have themselves outdone their own smellfulness. -Since writing last week's screed we have had an opportunity of per using a copy of the objectionable order.

The Shop and Factories' Bill was before the House of Strangulation during the past week. After a sev ere mangling, whereby the number of employees required to constitute a 'factory' was increased from 2 to 4, and other clauses favourable to the workers either mutilated or de leted, a clause limiting the number of employees in Chow shops was reached. Colebatch moved for the deletion of this clause, and to insert in its stead: 'No person of Chinese, or other Asiatic race shall be employed in any factory forlonger hours tlj&n women may be employed therein tin der this Act; nor shall he be em ployed before 8 o'clock in the morn ing nor after 5 o'clock in the even ing.'

Ex pert engineers; estimate that the coalfields will cover more than 500 square miles and produce more than 200,000,000 tons of coal. And sud denly these islands become immense ly valuable. The Dutch discovered them in 1596, but for more than 400 years no. country cared to claim possession of them. Of what use were they?

Now, Muriel, you got the best of the proposition. Please make sure it was you men tioned with Isobel. (What does C.L. know?)
