EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 July 1953
. SMTORlAL^ ? There has been much discussion lately on the question of whether or not compulsory unionism should be introduced into . . Australia. Protagonists of the policy argue that all workers.'''' : benefit by the achievements of the Unions in obtaining pay increa ses, shorter hour s, better., working -conditions and scv on, ;.- I t., cannot .. be^ denied , that is something; in.ithi.s:-:argument although, there have been times within recent memory when Unionists- were able to ..obtain advantages over ' their non-unionist vfellow-:w6rkers' in ^cer tain matters, for instance in over-time pay. It seems to us, however,' that the crucial point, in this, matter is the 'compulsory' aspect. Australia is, suopo:sodlyry'''diie' of the 'free democratic nations' of the world. While it is recog nised and accepted that, freedom, must stop where license .begins , , in thi s country we are. at. least still free to do certain things if. we want to , ? and one of those things is to join or abst...

THE BUSINESS MAN'S PRINCIPLES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 July 1953
THE 'BUSINESS MAN T S PRINCIPLES In a Sydney paper 1 a .it -Sunday , there appeared' a story of Mr. A---, a business man who had been summoned to answer a charge of refusing to give information a ho ul his business 10 the Prices Commission. When the Stipendiary Magistrate fined him £30, he refused to pay; instead he elected to serve 62 days in Long Bay goal. This man can obviously afford to ray the -,30 — why then does he elect to serve a gaol sentence instead of parting with wha ?_ for him is probably quite an insignif leant sum? It1 s all a matter of 'principle', he says. These c. atrtls are no longer necessary — they are continued only for the purpise if keeping jobs open for 'wartime bureaucrats' . The community would do much better if the solution of its problems were left to private enter prise. This martyr, aged 3ii, is surely not tor young to remember the ? early thirties , the days when enormous numbers of people tramped the country looking for work; when their physi cal an...

[?] In Sydney these days Australian cigarettes are on display - for sale to anyone who wants to buy them. This is indeed a change from the situation that has prevailed in. most parts of this country since the strain and stresses of the war effort first caused shortages of cigarettes. Many and: various are the reasons which have been given for these continued shortages and yety during these years, and particularly since 1946, there have been many people who have never had to go without Australian cigarettes. How- often, too, do people go into a shop and see other customers buy a couple of packets. Yet on asking for cigarettes themselves the newer customers are m; t with a blank stare and a 'Sorry'. These 'shortages' have, of course, been very profi table for the shops, particularly before imported cigarettes became freely available. Many a person, unable to give up the cigarette habit, would, make purchases amount ing to a conside rable sum in the hope that they would be able to get ...
