LATEST WAR NEWS SIEGE OF TOBRUK BEGINS ITALIAN TROOPS ISOLATED Tanks Cut Off Remaining Road [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 10 January 1941
[?] ITALIAN TROOPS ISOLATED Tanks Cut Off Remaining Road LONDON, Thursday: It would now appear to be clear that the siege of Toburk has begun. Apply ing the strategy of Bardia, British troops are reported to be drawing a ring round the Italian port. There seems to be little doubt that the Italian garrison there is practically cut off from the west. The presence of British advanced troops in this region lias made it almost impossible for the Italian forces to leave or enter the town. This view ? is expressed by authoritative military circles in Londoii, which point out that while small patrols might get from the town, it will be. impos sible for .the garrison to leave without a. fight. It is also ex tremely' unlikely that Tobruk could' obtain reinforcements. The Rome 'Official communique stated that in Cyrenaica patrols and artillery '-'were active -between (Bardia and Tobruk. British planes raided various localities in Cyrenaica, includ ing Tripoli, where four 'were killed and 10 wo...
CORRESPONDENCE Rehabilitating Our Rural Industries (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 10 January 1941
CORRESPONDENCE ' Rehabilitating Our Rural Industries (To tho Editor) IS'r,— There is a growing realisation vhat post-war planning should go ' hand and hand with a resolute prosecution, of the war, and that uripreparedness for peace may bo nearly as calamitous as was unpreparcdness for war. One of thfe most important problems is to find some way of stemming the con stant flow of people to the cities which is threateniner our alreadv totternisr economic structure. In 1914. there were 211,000 men earning their living ill 'Australia from agriculture. In1 .1939 there were only 189,000. So, in' ,25 years, fnore than 20,000 had desert ed the land. In 1940 many : thousands of country people wero drawn to the cities by the promise of high: wages in munition factories and other indus tries. Statistics show that 80 per cent, of our farmers , are in the hands of mortgagees : and, - financial institu tions, 'iand , are practically /'bankrupt.

Life In London Has Been a Grim Business But there is no Panic and Absolutely no Suggestion of Defeat [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 10 January 1941
Life In London Has Been a Grim Business But there is no Panic and Absolutely no Suggestion of Defeat [?] N° one has a good word to say at this hour for Stanley Baldwin, while the name of Ramsay MacDonald is greeted either with silence or a sneer. Admittedly the case against both of them ocnfirmed by the tragedy of events is an over powering one. jYet who is there to say that Mac Donald with his wistful leaning to wards the brotherhood of men did not exQss the spirit of Britain after the lasEnjvar? And if we condemn Baldwin as the prime architect of our misfor tunes, which of his critics will deny that in his loftiness of language and his belief in the inevitable triumph of decency over brutality, he gave notice to the deepest feelings of the people who proclaimed him 'The greatest living Englishman'? Pericles, in his immortal funeral -4^tion in the square of Athens, cried, ''foot us now praise famous men!' To *n Britain the cry goes out, ' ' Let us now condemn famous men!' This war ...
