A Mechanical Employment Bureau. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914
A Mechanical Employment Bureau. f - A mechanical device for bringing together the man. and the job has been invented by a Califarnian. It consists of an upright cabinet with a number of glass-covered cases, each of which shows a card with an inscription something .like this : "Wanted-A Buteher. Wages, 3dol. a day. German preferred. References.". Enough information is placed on the card, and visible through the glass, so that the applicant can tell if he can fill the requirements. If so he . drops 25c. in the slot, opens the cabinet, an:l takes out the card, which carries the address upon the reverse. . If he obtains the position, he lias paid only a quarter instead of the exorbitant fee demanded by some agencies, while if he is un successful he can get his. money back by taking the card to the main of fice. Only, one card for each jotyis placed in the cabinet, so there is no crush at the door of the employer, which; is a good thing for both par ties. The machines are placed in publi...

' Defence, not Defiance"' has always been England's mutto, and at present while she is engaged in the mightiest war the world has ever seen, fighting for the maintenance of right, a study of her Army and Navy, as given in the lantern lecture on Monday night, proved of great interest.
