Six-Day Milk Delivery [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 25 July 1950

Six-Day Milk Delivery SIR. — I, a housewife, find it most disheartening that the Mayor of Greater Wollongong (Aid. Dawson) is championing the 6-day , milk ? delivery - scheme. Apparently Aid. Dawson - has a super-refrigerator, which never breaks down. At the present moment myV refrigerator is but of' order, and. even scalded milk' will 'not; keep 48 hours. I have tried 'it. . ' The milk we would have to use on Sunday night would be more than 48 hours old. It will have been milked on Friday. No one can guarantee, here in Wollongong, iwhat our weather wili. be from day to ' day; the temperature of ten-rises to a point when the weather ? is decidedly sultry for the winter season — to wit, last week.1 Another point I would like to draw attention to— take a fam- | ily of six. They are supposed to take six pints of milk a day. I I would like to see the ordinary I family ice chest or refrigerator which could cope with 12 pints of milk, plus all the . extra food stuffs which the housewife h...

Allies' Motives In Korea [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 25 July 1950

Allies' Motives In Korea - SIR.— Mr. Truman, when, he sent American troops - to invade Korea, and Mr. Menzies, when he. sent (with the support of the A.L.P.) Australian airmen to help, proclaimed . from the house tops the purity of their motives. Thp.v desired (thev said) nurelv and simply to end the fighting and so eliminate any threat to \vorld peace. One might think, , then, that these gentlemen would eagerly seek and explore every possible avenue to that end, especially if it did not conflict with their recently-discovered regard for the United Nations Organisation. The fact that they do not do so is clear proof that their mo tives are much less pure than they would have us believe. They want, in fact, to prevent . the peaceful unification of Korea under a government pledged to nationalise industry (including the U.S.-o,wned tungsten mines) l and give land to the tiller. They also aim to use Korea as a for ward base for launching World War III. This is proved by the hostile rece...
