OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 22 January 1914
OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS A large number of letters have been received by the "Express" in support of a plea for overworked and under paid hospital nurses. The following Is typical of many: As a certificated nurse, with experi once both of London and of provincial hospitals, let me thank you for taking up the hard case of the nurses gen erally. Few persons really realise what nurses' hours are. The night work is, as a rule, twelve hours seven nights a week, and Bank Holidays bring no respite. The aproaching Christmas holidays mean to nurses only extra work and oxtra expense in the way of helping to pay for the decoration of their wards. It is really a horrible time, so far as they are concerned. At one hospital I was in at Christmas time a fancy dress ball was arranged for the staff after the "festivities" for the pauents were over. But, alas! every one - doctors and nurses aliko - was so "dead beat" that it was quietly allowed to fall through. I cannot understand why one Govern ...

MILK STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 22 January 1914
MILK STANDARD. Mr F. 13. Laver writes to "The Argus" as follows:-" I would like to briefly reply to Mr -W. M. Wignall's (secretary of M. and S.R.M.D. Association) letter, which appeared on Saturday. He cited an isolated case in our district, of a wvholesale producer having fortified his milk with cream, in order to bring it up to the present required standard. \Vould it not be absurd for the Board of Hlealth to grant a request to reduce the standard on account of this, or any other small minority of similar cases, whilst the great majority of farmers experience no difficulty in complying with the act, without resorting to the practice of adding creai ? Regarding his challenge to Mr eopen and fight this question, I must thank him for his information as to the formation of a Board of Health sub-committee, and I, per sonally, would be only too pleased to give evidence, if required. I also feel sure that Mr Farmer is not afraid to support our case; in fact, he has done so repeatedly at ...

PARSONS AND HUNTING VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORE. In dedicating on Sunday at M.Ior Monkton Church a memorial window to the late Rev. Charles Slingsby, who was killed wlhile hunting, the Arch bishop of York defended the associa tion between hunting and the life of the professing Christian (says the "Daily News" of November 1S). He would be a very bold man, said the Archbishop, who would argue that hunting was so cruel that it was abso lutely wrong. "It Is very dircult to express an opinion," said Mr James Buckland, when seen on the subject by a " Daily News" representative. "Tihe advocates of the sport argue that it brings a great deal of money into the country. and, again, the existeuce of the fox depends largely upon it. It is a tiuestion whe ther it is better that the fox should be shot by the farmers on sight or bred for huntlng purposes." If huntimmg were to cease, in a fevw years the fox would be exterminated. Mr Bucklaltd said he was acquainted with a charming clergyman who hunt...
