(Published by arraugemest.) Sane England " Prohibition of the manufacture and sale of alcoholic liquors - ill not pro mote temperance, and social problems are not solved by drastic measures which " destroy the freedom and real temperance of the majority of the people," was the declaration of Lieut Col L.O. Amery, new Secretary foi the Colonies, in a speech at Birmingham outlining the attitude of the Conservat ive Administration toward licensing problems. "The Government and the Conserv ative Party of Great Britain are not in favor of Prohibition, and they are convinced in their attitude by the. ex perience of the United States " These statements were broadcasted throughout US.A., and are re-pro duced here from the New York " Times." " The experience of the United States," continued the Secretary for the Colonies, in his speech. "had shown them that, even if they could rise to the pitch of a national decree, abolishing the production of alcoholic liquors, they did not promote real te...

THE MOST PATIENT PEOPLE MUST SHOW ANNOYANCE AT TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 March 1925
THE MOST PATIENT PEOPLE MUST SHOW ANNOYANCE' AT TIMES. Everybody has their hour of trou ble. But people having any irrita tion of the skin have many hours of trouble. Nothing so annoying; no thing so irritating. It's a hard and trying position. Leave it alone and you can hardly bear it. Relief and cure have come at last. People have put it to the test. Doan's Ointment cures skin disease. People are learn ing that this is so. Here is a case in point: Mr, .J. Tiller, builder, Sharp St., Cooma, says: "For eight years I was troubled with Eczema and spent quite a lot of money trying to get rid of the ailment, but nothing I used can compare with Doan's Oint ment. This remedy is wonderfully soothing and allays the irritation almost at once. I always keep a pot in the house, and would not be without it for anything. I can confl dently recommend Doan's Ointment to anyone suffering from any form of skin disease." Six years later, Mr. Tiller says: "I have still the good opinion of Doan's Ointm...
WHITE AUSTRALIA. As Communists See It. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 March 1925
WHITE AUSTRALIA. As Comunaists See It. The Communists, who have nominated candidates for Par-I liament at the forthcoming' State elctions, denounce the White Australia policy. Below are given some of their reasons for doing so, as enunciated by various candidates at the Com munist Hall on a recent Sunday night. Note the "logic" of the reasoning. Comrade Mrs. Rickie.-The White Australia policy had a purely economic basis. It was intended to prevent the intro-' duction into Australia of cheap colored labor. Now, by some curious and unexplained eco nomic alcemy, it has become a device of the capitalist to help him exploit the Australian wor ker. To ask a Communist woman Who denounced race barriers if she would marry a Chinaman was absurd. There were thou sands among the Communists who, from that point of view, would be just as abhorrent to the Communist woman as the most hideous Chinese or negro. (The irony of the last remark missed some of the male com rades present.) Comrade Paddy Dr...
