(If not claimed within seven days please return to Park Rd., S.22.) Dear Bob,-The way in'which you'stick to your friends must bring a glow of pride to your old school masters, and a feeling.of keen anticipation to those of your friends who are queued up waiting their turn for an appointment. Now take George Pearce. Here is a chap who during a period of about. 36 years occupied a well-paid seat in almost every Cabinet which governed Australia-be it Labor, 'Nationalist, United Australia, or Coalition. Unfortunately for Sir George the electors of Western *Australia showed very decidedly in 1937 that they were heartily sick and tired of him, and they sacked him in a-mnanner which left no doubt in one's mind- as to their intentions. This was very disappointing to Sir George-very. But. every cloud has a silver. lining, and ...

WET CANTEENS (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 8 December 1939
WET CANTEENS (To the Editor) Sir,--This world would be much happier if it were not for dictators and intolerant extremists of the W.S. type. I have been a total abstainer all a fairly long life, but that is no reason why I should force my views on other people: With licensed hotels all over the State and military officers allowed to have intoxicating liquor. at mess, refusal of wet canteens to the rank and file of the. Second A.I.F. is indefensible and insulting. These men. the cream of our young man hood volunteers from every section of tlfe community, proud and eager .to uphold the splendid record of the ori ginal A.I.F., are being treated as: chil dren. Given wet canteens under mili tary supervision, there would be no excess drinking in camp, and no temptation to go far afield and drink in undesirable places. Even if a few yoifng men do acquire a taste for liquor, there will be little harm. done. If they are sensible, men they will learn control.. Prohibition has been a failure w...

0^o Continern BAY ST., FRANKSTON THE TURF PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE-LINE -MEN AND HORSES. (By The Meteor.). Those people who saw Lady Monta gue struggling aloing at the roar of the field in the Fund Handicap at Moonee Valley on Saturday would hesitate to back her in any company again if they did not.know the reason for her shocking display. Yes, there was an excuse for her, and'.a good one, too. It seems that the mare got her tongue caught over the bit while at the barrier; and, as is only natural in the:circumstances, she was gasping for breath during the race. Her trainer, "Ack" Murray, still has hopes of Lady Montague winning the Epsom Cup this week. He has purchased a patent rubber strab to tie the tongue down in pcetion, and this had been tried out with success. "Ack," while hoping for the best at Mentone, is not a bit ipleased about the hooting which is likely to greet her on returning to scale. Still, as he says, he can take it I ! .I ff Jack O'Dwyer seems doomed not to win a race....
