USELESS DREAD= NOUGHTS III.-SUBMARINE AGGRESSION THE SUPREME WEAPON. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917
USELESS DREAD NOUGHTS ? ? ? e- ? III.-SUBMARINE AGGRESSION By E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT. (Specially written for The Mirror.) THE SUPREME WEAPON. If the exact role that the immense battta fleets will play in the warfare of the future is at present extremely uncertain and ill-defined, the future of the submarine and her lines of development are perfectly clear. They will bo the supreme weapon in both attack and de fence. I will deal with their defensive rolo first. Owing to the danger of submarine at tack, battle fleets cannot protect a coast locally against sudden raids. The main fleets must lie at anchor in some protected harbor, leaving miles of coast exposed to attack by the enemy's fast cruisers. The battle fleet is useful for only one pur pose, namely, to be ready to meet a similar fleet of the enemy should it be put to sea. Up to the final moment when the leviathans join issue for the final struggle for supremacy, tho battle fleet is more of an encumbrance than an asset. It is all ri...

IN THE LIMELIGHT LATEST THEATRICAL AND MOVIE GOSSIP BY SUZANNE. Nothing But Marie Tempest. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917
1 N TT'H E~ — '~'~' LATEST THEATRICAL AND MOVIE GOSSIP BY SUZANNE. Nothing But Marie Tempest. , Thelre-»s in the production of Good Gracious, Annabelle, something that probably makes it unique in Australian dramatic history ; here we have an American farce-comedy played entirely in English. From first to last there is not a trace of what we rather vaguely call American accent Mias Marie Tempest is daintily Eng lish, Mr. Graham Browne is drunkenly English, Mr. Harvey is furiously English.'bnc or two pf the others arc Australian-English, and the rest are just English. This makes everything amusing and incongruous, because the incredible things the people do are so American as to be almost exasperating. In any casci the play this time is Marie Tempest. The others wedge in chance bits to support the superstructure, and that is all. The comedy is Marie Tempest, the whole Marie Tempest, and nothing but Marie Tempest. Not a Burlesque. Marie Tempest's part of Annabelle Leigh undoubtedly sui...
THE TALK OF THE TOWN France's Day, [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917
FAlKor™TOWI1 BYTATLER^ France's Day, The wonderful enthusiasm which has been thrown into the efforts on behalf of France's Day is a further example of the splendid pat riotic spirit which exists amongst the vast majority of the Australian people. It reveals the recognition throughout the Commonwealth of the sacrifices made at such awful cost by the brave French people. Nothing can be too.much to do for the maimed and sick soldiers . and the women and children who have been the. victims of the aggression of the Huns, and I am glad to' note that this feeling has taken such practical shape. According to all my reports a bumper collection is assured. Hun Bombs. I hear many indignant protests against the apparently ineffective control of enemy activ ities which makes such an outrage as the ex plosion on the 'Cumberland' possible. The general feeling expressed amongst my acquain tances is that more might and ought to be ?done by the Federal authorities to prevent these things at their sou...

THE TALK OF THE TOWNS A New Session. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 21 July 1917
/w^nA-^HE^^n^f3 BY TATJ_EFl_- A New Session. I was present at the opening or the second cession of the new N.S.W. Parliament on Tuesday. These functions are shorn of much of the glamor with which they were formerly associated, but they are always interesting. I was pleased to listen to the graceful speeches of Mr. Bavin in the Assembly, and of Professor Pcden and Mr. Braddon in the Council. Par liament has gained much by the addition of irany of the new members in both Chambers. 'Seventy-one M'sL.C. A friend with a flair for figures reminds me that there were 53 M'sL.C. when the National Government appointed 21 members to fill the vacancies in the Legislative Council. Since then three M's.L.C— H. C. Dangar, W. H. Holborow, and F. E. Winchcombe — have died. The membership therefore totals 71 at present. Defiance of Punctuation Laws.

One of the plumpest of the duclts was rolled in clay and baked in the ashes.

SUPREME SUBMARINE IV.-LESSONS FROM THE DARDANELLES By E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT. (Specially written for The Mirror.) The Dardanelles Expedition, if it has served no other purpose, is an object lesson on the difficulties encountered by a hostile fleet operating many hundreds of miles from it» base in the face of submarine attack. Every lesson which will apply to naval warfare in the future can be learnt from a careful study of the true facts, only with this difference. that at the Dardanelles we were dealing witlt submarines in their infancy, whereas in the future there is no reason why there should be any limit to their size and capacity. The Dardanelles Expedition did not fail be cause of the of the enemy's submarines, but on account of gross mismanagement of thd land campaign; on the other hand the expedi tion could have been brought to complete failure at the start had the German and Aus trian U boats been in a position to strike at the commencement of the campaign, and had the Turks t...
