NEMO'S HORTICULTURAL NOTES Wheat Harvesting Award; Advantages of Marketing Boards The recently announced wages award for farm labour appears to be a vicious piece pf discrimination against the employer as a class and without due regard to the circumstances associated-with wheat growing as an essential primary industry. It has been announced that the wages fixed for farm labour is in keeping with those earned by munition workers and in other secondary indus tries, there is no parallel between the two cases. 1)1 the first place the manufacturers Of munitions and other secondary pro ducts are paid on a cost plus basis, but this method does not appear to come into the picture when applied to primary industries The wheat grower has had a particularly hard time in recent years. With wheat selling at under 2/- per bushel he has grot himself into a financial position which needs the work of an econ omist to straighten out. I don't know whether politicians Have no "stomach" for economics or ...

ONE ARMY [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 26 November 1942
ONE ARMY »v At long last our Prime Minister has mustered sufficient courage to seek permission from his political bosses to place the A.M.F. on the same footing as the A.I.F. This is a move which should have b^en adopted, at the very latest, so soon as Japan struck in the south-west Pacific. Mr. Curtin must surely have seen the need for it then, if not before. Klse how could he possibly have accepted the assistance of a "conscripted" army which tame so promptly from the United States of America in response to his appeal for help.
