TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. Got UP for the Bar Recruiting Speeches at the Races. That's how it struck us at Moonee. And, seemingly, the soldier man who fired off the speeches looked at it that way too. "I am going to appeal to you as Sports," he said, "and I a.k you just for a moment to put yourself in the rjposition of the man who meets a friend and is asked to have a drink. yiou say 'yes' and your very good friend pays for it. The talk goes on and the good friend wants to shout again. Most sports, if they are in a -position to do it, would say, 'No, old chap it's up to me.' But the manr. wi ho put in first insists and shouts again. He is willing to keep on shzut Sg, but no true sport able to return i the treat would let him do so. Only a hardened hummer would do that. "And, sports," he cried, "isn't that ojust it? Our boys shouted for you sin the landing at Callipoli-that was Sthe biggest shcut of all-they shouted for you at Lonesome Pine. and again ait the evacuation, they shouted for V ou at...

Soup Kitchen Methods Raise Criticism of Labor Committee—Protest to Education Department. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
Soup Kitchen Methods Raise Criticism of Labor CommitLee-Protest to Education Department. Though the movement to provide Richmond school children with hot soup in winter was approved of at the inception as likely to tend to the wel fare of the children and better equip them physically to give attention to their mental tasks, it seems that the manner of carrying out the scheme has aroused considerable criticism. Ex ception is taken to the methods that have been employed in connection with advertising for subscriptions to the fund. and it is now considered that the "hot soup" has placed a stig ma on the district. As an extra com tfort for the children the distributing was approved, but as a charitable dole it is drawing forth protests from many parents and also the scholars. At the meeting of the Richmond Un employed Committee, an adjunct of she local Labor party on Wednesday night, reference was made to the new phase of the question. Mr. HII. Nicol said the Richmond Council should be ...

THE WOMEN WHO DO WAR WORK [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
THE WOMEN WHO DO WAR WORK "And so it fell out that when a man went forth for to buy him undervest ments, the damsel that was in the bazaar would say unto him, 'What is thy need, O son of man?' 'And he was ashamed to tell her all that was in his heart, and he knew not what to say; wherefore was he halting in his speech; and his coun tenance did take on the color of blood. "But the maiden that did tend to his wants, she was in no wise dis quieted, and she did beseech him to impart unto her the name of the thing. "And, afterwards, she did hold up the leg of the garment for appraise ment, and did raise her voice in praise of it. And the young man was brought into a proper state upon the instant, so that he did buy whatsoever she did show unto him. And his going out from that place was quicker than his coming in."-"The Book of Arte mas." Goat-skin coats are mentioned by a lady writer as quite a novelty. She is in error. Goats have worn them for years. The increase in the price of whisky ...

IN THE ARMY. I guess the doc. was loaded 'cause he said that I would do, So now I'm in the army, and our dancin'. act is through. I sneaked up there this mornin', Hon., while you was still asleep, I did it quiet 'cause I thought that maybe you would weep, And carry on and holler if I told you of my plan; I had to do it dear-I had to show I was a man. I've had my share of loafin', and I've had my share of fun; I couldn't stand by idle now while this work's bean' done. You needn't worry, babe, for we've saved enough to keep You pretty well provided for, and if the Great Big Sleep Should come to me, my little girl has looks and class and brain, And she won't find it hard at all to team right up again Withr some good guy, but for the love of Mike don't pick a "Ham."

Referring to the work going on about the lines, Pri vate Taylor says:-"All manner of nations are in it here. We have chaps from all parts of the globe, all doing some sort of work, either on the rail ways or behind the lines. The girls do motor driving and carpentering, and there are now advertisements in English papers for women for cook ing in France.

A SONG OF WINTER WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
A SONG OF WINTER WEATHER. It isn't the foe that we fear; It isn't the bullets that whine; It isn't the business career Of a shell, or the bust of a mine; It isn't the snipers who seek To nip our young hopes in the bud; No, it isn't the guns, And it isn't the Huns It's the mud, mud, mud. It isn't the melee we mind, That often is rather good fun, It isn't the shrapnel we find Obtrusive when rained by the ton: It isn't the bounce of the bombs That gives us a positive pain; It isn't the strafing we get When the weather is wet It's the rain, rain, rain. It isn't because we lack grit We shrink from the horrors of war, We don't mind the battle a bit, In fact, that is what we are for; It isn't the rum jars and things Make us wish we were back in. the fold; It's the fingers that freeze In the boreal breeze It's the cold,. cold, cold. Oh, the rain, the mud, and the cold, . The cold, the mud, and-the rain; With weather at zero, it's hard for a hero From language that's rude to refrain. With po...
Food in the Trenches. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
Food in the Trenches. By H. R. Wakefield. No one, who has not endured the weariness, the unending' strain and the fret of trench life, or, indeed, of any form of active service in close proximity to the enemy, can realise. how quickly human beings lose the more subtle shade of desire and be become almost obsessed with the ele mentary animal longing for food and sleep. Yet any commander who, en: grossed in the study of mightier problems, forgot to study ,his men's stomachs, would very soon learn this blazing truth. To their eternal credit, the .British authorities from the earliest days of the war made up their minds that whatever happened, even if the hea vens fell, the British soldiers should not go hungry. As.long as open fighting lasted, and while the weather remained warm, al though the difficulties involved in supply were enormous and demanded all the resource and ingenuity of the, Armp Service Corps for their solu tion, there were certain compensa tions. Excitement and constan...
NO DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
NO DIFFERENCE. Why do we love to probe into a scandal and hate to open a bald egg? "Nulla" writes: Hard luck? 'Struh! It was in Egypt, and though Jim and me had fed well we could ha' done with a lot more to drink if we'd had the dough. 3Moochin' about on the off chance of striking someone we knew, we lobbed at a camp just when they was handing out billies. We got one. 'Struth! It had toothbrushes, 'n' soap, cards, a prayer-book, and bottles of pills an' a plum pudding.- We couldn't look at tucker, so we give the pud ding to a nigger-poor cow, he looked hungry-an' at the bottom of the billy we gets a letter. It was from three good sports of girls in Bunbury. an' after wishing us everything of the best, they wind up: "And we hope you won't break your teeth on the half sovereign in the pudding."-"Bulle tin." Teacher: Why are you late for school? Pupil: Please, teacher, I must have overwashed myself.

MESS CUSTOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
MESS CUSTOMS. "It is not generally known that there are regiments in the British Army in which the King's health is not drunk. The origin of this omis sion is that these regiments were in ancient days so undoubtedly loyal to the King that they were exempted from the test of the toast. "In Welsh regiments everyone in the mess who has not previously done so has to "pass the leek"-that is, eat a raw onion-at dinner on St. David's Day, while the regimental goat is held behind him by two drummer boys: Dining once on this auspicious occa sion with the 23rd Royal Welsh Fusil iers, there was an Italian Roman Catholic priest present, evidently in ured to this rich diet, who thought that he was meant to eat the whole plateful of leeks, whict he proceeded to do with great gusto. And the more he ate, the more everyone cheer ed him, and the more they cheered the more the priest smiled and the more he ate; till at last everyone was in hysterics. Which hilarity appar ently so weakened the two boys...
THe Increased Cost of Living—Council Refuses to Call Meeting—Onus Placed on Members of Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
The Increased Cost of Living-Council Refuses to Call Meeting-Onus Placed on Members of Parliament. Considerable discussion took place at.the meeting of the Richmond Coun cil on Monday night when a letter was read from the Richmond Co-operative Society suggesting that the council call a meeting to discuss "the ques tion of the continual increase in prices of the commodities of life." Cr. Bell got up first and said that it was not a matter for the council but for Parliament. The holding of a meeting. in Richmond would not do any good. It would be merely a waste of time. If any meetings were to be held they ought to be held, not in Richmond, but where the "boodlers" live-in Toorak. So far-so good, but up stands Cr. Palling, and off he reels it at 273 words a minute. "No, sir; I do not agree with Cr. Bell. I think that this continual rise in the price of food stuffs and the necessaries of life is such a vital question so affecting the well-being and the very life of the worker that we a...
