A VERITABLE CRISIS IN SERIOUS DANGER OF LOSING. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 15 December 1917
A VERITABLE CRISIS IN SERIOUS DANGER OF LOSING. We have now reached a serious crisis. The situation is more critical in this fourth year than at any mo ment in the first three months. Dur ing the first three months the Ger mans had every chance of beating us. For three years after those critical first three months they had no chance of beating us. Now, in the beginning of the fourth year of the war, they have a definite prospect of beating us before America can come to our sup port. The Americans hope to put a million men into the field next spring. But they have to cross the Atlantic, which is swarming with sub marines, and it may be that the American reinforcements will be de layed, owing to the difficulties and dangers of navigation. However long may be the delay, until they come Britain and France will have to sup port nearly the whole weight of the German and Austrian attacks. -W. H. Holman, Premier of N.S.W.

They have declared themselves "Yes" voters. The fol lowing facts show this. The soldiers know the needs of their mates in the trenches. Be guided by them. The committee of the Bendigo branch of the Returned Soldiers' As sociation has unanimously decided to support the reinforcements proposal. Vote "Yes" is the urgent recom mendation of the Castlemaine branch of the R.S.A. Returned soldiers at Hamilton have decided to support the Ministry's proposals. "We pledge ourselves to do our best .to secure a 'Yes' majority," state the members of the Goulburn Valley branch of the association. Speaking at Geelong on behalf of the Soldiers' League, Major Edgar said that not more than 3 per cent. of returned men would vote "No." At a meeting of returned soldiers conv...

ARE WE FIGHTING FOR ENGLAND OR AUSTRALIA? Facts Which Speak for Themselves AUSTRALIA'S TRUE POSITION Some Queries and Some Answers There are those who cry that Australia has done enough, and who try to back up their arguments by the statement that Australia, in taking her 't part in the war, is fighting only for England. Australia is not fighting . only for England; she is fighting for her very existence, fighting in order. that she shall retain her inherent right to grow and expand until she reaches the full vigor of nationhood. Australia is wrapped up in the fate of England: if England should be vanquished Australia would Inevitably fall under the. iron rule of Germany. In the following article, byAmbrose Pratt, it is shown that apart from the fact that Australia's fate depends on the fate of England, England has claims upon Australia's help in this time of crisis, claims which cannot be ignored. +4+Ve!*++++4*+++++++++++++++:X*++++++!+!*+++++++++M*+ The Commonwealth Government is ...
