AUSTRALIAN RED CROSS. WORK IN WAR AREA. URGENT APPEAL FOR FUNDS. AUSTRALIA'S DUTY TO HER MEN [Australian Associated Cable Message.] LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 8 May 1918

L ' ~BJJ PSD CROSS WORIK IIN WAR na. un-ruT APP FO- FU S. AUSTRAAS BJUY TO HER MEN [Australian Assoefited Cable 3ressnwe.1 LONDON, Australians in London are watching keenly the result of Red Cross Day. They are unanimous in saving that no cause is more deserving of support. The society has played a magnificent part in alleviating uiffering on the battle-field and in the hos pitals, and has undoubtedly saved the lives of the majority of prisoners in Germany and Turkey. The administration is extraordi narily effcient. heing a combination of bnd ness, sentiment. and enthusiasm. The number of honorarY workers accounts for the low expenses. Colonel Murdodh, in an interview, said: ''I am conlident that every home in the Commonwealth will respond to the Red Cross appeal on behalf of the sick. wounded, and captured, who have nobly unheld Aus tralia's name on the battle-field. Their needs will be greater than ever, in view of the recent operations, and a greater strain is likely to be thrown...

The Weather. ---- .. .. After the grand downpour of a month ago, things drie- up. and the pessimist beg.an to :)ot only look blue himself, hut tried to mnake others do likewise. - The other fellow smiled, and those who had taken note as we urged two years ago, waited for 13thb iMay. And they did not wait in vain. On Friday light rain fell totalling 15 points. This was acceptable and the optimist said things were right. Sa they were. Saturday night and early Sunday morning saw a beautiful raint come in from the north, and, at 9 a.m. the gauge showed 99 points, or 114 for the two falls. Tbat was good, but better followed. During Sunday afternoon some good choers fell, and then it looked like clearing. Later in the eveini~ we got some more, but the culmination came just at midnight. Vivid lightning and roaring thunder, and tierce squalls of wind, brought a downpour which rattled on the roofs as if the heavens had barst.' Monday's gauge showed an additional 57 points, so that Vwe have f...

Repatriation. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 May 1918

Repatz iation. That there is sometumog radically wrong in the adrnmistra-tl n of the Bepatriation scheme is paLtuiiy cvident to all. High prices for land are being paid in southern parrts, but much better land, so far as suitabihity is concerned, in the Mai lee is being turned down. Now this is is not only unfiir but unjust, and gives rise to a nasty taste in the mouth. Admitted that there are thousands of acres of Crown land still open for selection in the Mailee, it is nothing short of cruelty to ask a re turned man to go on to a block and pioneer when there are so many im proved blocks just awaiting a little commonsense to give the men a chance of making a living from the start. We know of one block pur chased down south recently which will cost every penny of £30 per aore before a man takes possession, and then after possibly the biggest part of his remaining lifetime on it, the soldier will find a millstone round his neck. Quite recently a speaker in Melbourne begged of the pec...
