HELP OF THE STATE MILITARY AUTHORITIES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

HELP OF TH E STATE MILITARY AUTHORITIES. The Queensland Recruiting Committee state that they appreciate very much the help that has been afforded them by the District Commandant and his officers right throughout their operations. This is a factor that lias helped very considerably in their wo/k, and on their part they have regarded it as part of 'their duty to cordially co-operate with them in every way. ,'.

MEDICAL EXAMINATION TOO STRICT. VARICOSE VEINS COMMON CAUSE OF REJECTION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

MEDICAL EXAMINATION TOO STRICT. VARICOSE VEINS COMMON CAUSE OF REJECTION. We are inclined to agree with the Queensland Recruiting Committee in their contention that, although some 'efficient standard.. of medical examination must be laid down, nevertheless it would seem that a much greater number of fairly good recruits could be procured if the medical restrictions were not- so severe. Cases are known where fine big men, who had roughed it all their.lives in the bush, were turned down. after coming all the way from Cun.-a;nul!a to Diisbane, and alter Having passoa doctor in Cunnainulla, because they had slight varicose Vwirx. 'The stiir.j^cncy too. nf thp or-.--! ; ,--:i has kept many men out of the ranks, who. we feci sure, would have made useful soldiers, if enlisted. This question, however, is a big one, and really requires comprehensive consideration. The Q.RX. have in this, as in other matters, submitted the results of their experiences for consideration by the Defence Departme...

SATISFACTORY OR UNSATISFACTORY REPLIES [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

SATISFACTORY OR UNSATISFACTORY REPLIES Local Confidential Recruiting Committees, ? of which we liave 1S7 working under our direction, have found it very hard to distinguish between Satisfactory and Unsatisfactory replies, when dealing with the census cards. No basis has ever been laid down by the Authorities as to what constitutes an unsatisfactory reply. One com mitteeman notified us that they would treat the ? negative reply ol every married man as satis factorj'.' In the absence of specific direction from Headquarters, we ourselves have refrained from advising local committees as to what con stitutes an unsatisfactory reply. We urge them to simply make sure of the correctness of every man's reply to the various questions in his census ? card. The responsibility of laying down a basis, ? has, therefore, been left entirely with the Federal Authorities. Out of the 120,000 replies there ? were approximately 5,000 effective affirmatives ; but it must be remembered that while the remai...

VOTING ON CONSCRIPTION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

VOTING ON CONSCRIPTION. A question that is at present creating a great deal of interest in military and civil circles is whether young men under 21 years should - be allowed to vote on conscription. Our organisation, the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League, is strongly of the opinion, putting it in a few words, that if a man is capable of passing the military test, both mental and physical, and is fit to carry -a rifle to fight for the liberty of his country, he should be qualified to have a voice in shaping the political destiny of his country. We sincerely trust that the Prime Minister will lose no time in making arrangements for those who are serving their country to vote, and in doing so, he will only be dealing: justly with those who have answered their country's call.

REPORT OF QUEENSLAND RECRUITING COMMITTEE. THE CARD CENSUS SYSTEM. WHAT IS A "SATISFACTORY REPLY." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

REPORT OF QUEENSLAND RECRUITING COMMITTEE. THE CARD CENSUS SYSTEM. WHAT IS A 'SATISFACTORY REPLY.' The following report from the Queensland Recruiting Committee will give our readers an idea of the difficulties under which the recruiting authorities are labouring under the obselete voluntary system : — At the time of the last general meeting,, on the iuui ;uaiui, we were jusl uineiuig un a decline in recruiting, due to various causes. For ~ the previous, three months we had a steady flow of recruits, and this induced a feeling of optimism which, when publicly expressed by those in authority, led to an appreciable drop in recruiting. You will remember that at the beginning of the year, the Prime Minister's special appeal for 50,000 men had begun to take effect, and at the time of the last general meeting, we had begun the work of classifying the replies in order, not only that they might assist us in obtaining extra recruits, but also that Queensland might be ready . for any developm...

GERMAN ELEMENT PROVES SOURCE OF GRAVE APPREHENSION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

GERMAN ELEMENT PROVES SOURCE OF GRAVE APPREHENSION. The German element in many centres provides a constant source of trouble. Many men refuse to leave their homes, with the knowledge that Germans, or.nicn of German origin are left behind. One recruiting committeeman stated that he could see only 10 houses from his front verandah, in a certain district, and that every one of the 10 ?was inhabited by a German family. At every gathering of committeemen we. .are met with the same demand, that enemy aliens should all be interned, and that men of enemy parentage should be disfranchised. We have passed this resolution from time to time along to Headquarters, but nothing of a public character seems to have been done to allay the fears of Britishers resident in these German-affected districts, of which there are many in Queensland. The problem of what to do with these semi-Germans is a very live one. Britishers argue that it is not safe to recruit them, neither is it safe or fair for the Bri...

AGE LIMIT SHOULD BE EXTENDED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

AGE LIMIT SHOULD BE EXTENDED. There is no possible doubt that the Central Powers are relying more and more on men of over 45 for their reserve ; and the slackness in recruiting in Australia might be overcome to some extent, were men of from 43 to 50 years allowed to enlist. There are numbers of men, says the Q.R.C., in many districts, especially in mining districts, ?who, though more than 45, are quite as fit as a great many of the very young men now enlisting, and the Committee thinks, and rightly, that as long as the medical restrictions were severe ?enough, the age limit could be made more elastic.

OUR FERRY COLLECTORS. WHY NOT DISABLED SOLDIERS? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

OUR FERRY COLLECTORS. WHY NOT DISABLED SOLDIERS? There are many avenues for employment open to the returned soldier ; but to the man who has been partially incapacitated by losing a hand or foot, the average job is unsuitable. Consequently, such positions as that of lift attendant or caretaker, are eagerly snapped up by the maimed warriors, notwithstanding the beggarly pay. It is well known, however, that the returned soldier is not, unless he has special qualifications, welcomed with open arms by a great many of the employers. Take the City Council as an example. One would imagine that the body representing the muni cipality would do its utmost to assist wounded returned soldiers. But no, it hands the work of collecting on the ferries to boys, and pays them a man's wage. Surely the City Council is suffi ciently patriotic to realise its duty to the returned soldiers. If it is not, it can rest assured that this paper will leave no stone unturned in the interests of the heroes who ris...

TWO MAGNIFICENT SPEECHES. TOOWOOMBA SUPPORTS R.S. AND P.N. LEAGUE. MR. WELLS ON THE ENEMY ALIEN QUESTION, Mr. Robert Wells, General Organising Secretary, and Mr. W. Williams, President of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League, addressed an exceptionally fine meeting in the Toowoomba Town Hall, on Tuesday night. Though the meeting was not large in numbers, it had its compensations in that nearly every person present ;. joined the League at the conclusion of the meeting. Tli iv Mavnr (Aid. A. D. McWaters) presided, and the' speakers were assisted by Mr. J. E. Stone, local Hon. Secretary of the League. The Mayor told the audience that both speakers had seen active service, and he was sure they would be given an attentive hearing. Mr. Wells spoke finely. In fact, he was in better form than the writer has ever, seen him. At the outset, he said1 that while he appreciated the kind remarks of the Mayor, he was not particularly keen on their services to their country being disc...

LEAGUE WILL SUPPORT CONSCRIPTION AS ONLY MEANS OF GETTING MEN. This League believes in conscription as the only fair and equitable means of securing the men required to fill the gaps in our fighting forces.
