ENCOURAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 31 January 1919
^ENCOURAGEMENT. It is gratifying to note the progress' the principles of the Returned.. Solders' and Citizens' PoliUeafoFeder^-ttpn^re mak- ' / ing in securing the support of electors, and those 'whom opinions are held in highest respect by electors. We have received abetter -from 'Mr; A. Crombie, of . Elphin,' Toowoomba, in which he ex- ' presses satisfaction at the Federation's interpretation of Elective Ministries. Mr. Crombie goes on to . say, 'My sympathy is with you. In evidence of this I may say that a few days ago I made a contri bution to the local repatriation funds (£100) for ...the express purpose of as sisting the building .of a soldiers' hall there.' We trust Mr. Crombie's good example will be largely followed., ; President Wilson hits the nail on, the head when he asserts the people of the neighbouring territories should decide the future of the annexed German Colo nies.

Find out what you want. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 31 January 1919
Find out what you want* It is a good thing to go straight to the goal of a -worthy desire, but a prelim inary to. movement in the right' direction is assuredly to know what you wcint. ... That line of reasoning, of course, proves the strength of the Soldiers' and Citizens' Political Federation. It. also manifests very clearly the weakness of . all organisations of returned soldiers who do not place politics in the forefront of their programme. ? ' If we get away dov\fn to- the foundation fact of leagues . and federations among . returned soldiers,, we assuredly find one ?aim and object common to them all; the ... welfare of the men, the providing for them when they return home war weary, . : their work well done and best of all, with the consciousness that with them . the' highest thing. .of all was duty. ' The returned soldiers know that they deserve well of their country. They, were told they did deserve well of Aus-^. tralia, even before ; the^ left these sunny ?- shores, and wen...

German Possessions in the Pacific. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 31 January 1919
German Possessions in the Pacific. After all justice is beind done to Aus tralasia in. the decision 'which the Peace Conference has taken' in regard to the territories which Germany possessed in. the Western Pacific and which were cap tured by New Zealand and Australia - re- spectively. . We may gather hope that the- League cf Nations is not 'to be a.mcro dream from . the decision of the Conference that the territories of Germany in New Guinea . and those the enemy held in the Sarnoan Group- aret o' be vested in. the League, while on the other hand any 'cause for dissatisfaction at a control which might be deemed inefficient, because it is joint, ?is removed wholly by the hint which is ?given that .Britain is to. be 'custodian of the territories lately German by the be lief expressed, that the Imperial Govern ment, while being responsible for the ad ministration of affairs will delegate con trol of the annexed colonies to Australia and New Zealand respectively.

The Allies and Bolshevism [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 31 January 1919
The Allies and Bolshevism 'There are more ways of killing a dog than by choking -him with bu.tter.' That ?is a chunk of proverbial wisdom which is worthy of the consideration of the sec tion of the Allies in holding a conference with the Bolsheviks and other political camps in. Russia should not be. In connection with the adverse critic ism in which the London ''Morning Post'' is most prominent, it must always be remembered that behind the Confer ence ^proffered by the Allies there is the frank admission ' that df nothing even tuates there must be armed intervention in Russia. ' ?? . ' On the face of the facts the British standpoint that the Bolsheviks and other Russian political cults -should be given the opportunity to express their views and their desire with the reasons which led to their appeals — in the face of - all the facts the proposal to confer with the Bolsheviks is simply a vast stride to wards utilising the League of Nations in order to keep the peace. There are only t...

Is Pan-Germanism still a Menace ? [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 7 February 1919
Is Pan-Germanism still a ^Menace ? 'Is Germanism still a menace?' in -volves that other question, 'Is the repub licanism of Germany sincere?' Three interesting contributions to the relation of that problem have lately been given. The first is represented by . the . request of the ex-Kaiser (that lie may be permitted to reside in Germany. The : second is found in the coalition of the party in Germany led by Herr Scheide mann with the Democrats for the pur pose of electing Prince Maximilian as the first President of the Republic, while the third factor arises i# the desire expressed \ in Austria that North and South Ger many should unite. Any one of the pro posals gives us cause for thought — what must we say when all three are tiiewed? In regard to William Hohenzollern'e wish, we need only scan history to ascer tain what underlies it. The implication ;? is, manifestly, that the ex-Kaiser has hopes that he may yet restore his dy nasty. What would the permission ac corded to Napoleon I...
A Good Omen. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 7 February 1919
A Good Omen. ? i ?We do not know whether the choice of | Gibraltar as the meeting- place of the League of Nations has been made for the purpose of emphasising- the stupendous changes which supernational control I will bring about, but if there has been no I ?leaning to the dramatic in .the selection of ''The Rock' as it is termed by the military men who have been stationed there, it as strangely significant .and may be deemed the happiest of omens for the future. - For the very naming of Gibraltar turns rj one'-s thoughts to the most momentous ' j events in history and always to war. Gib- ] raltar has. figured in history since the i Mo'ors in the first flash of Mahometan 1 power invaded Spain and not very far to I ' ?the west is Denia, a seaport which has 1 been, but which still remembers that it 1 made history away in the past for it is 1 the place where the Moorish forces land- -l ed. -Now the, sea has forsaken the town I and ?--??ships?- must lie in the ofllng two I miles away. \...
Rhyme in Business. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 7 February 1919
- Rhyme in Business. The Deputy Postmaster-Genferal would 'be startled did he receive correspondence ?in verse. It takes much, however, to up set the equanimity of military postal of ficials who receive many curious mis sives. The following verses from a mail hungry soldier in Palestine bore fruit, lor there chanced to be some letters for him at the Australian Base Post t Office when they reached there. The opening 'Verses are ail appeal to the Regimental Censor: — Dear Censor, hark unto my lay, Tiie regulations I obey, Afd' ^us, this rMuy; Winter day|| w' ?All stale conventions do I slayi Kind Censor, just give this a go, And with your pencil blue go slow ; : My address 'tis hidden in the text Of this small rhyme that I've annexed.

NEWS OF YOUR FRIENDS. A Weekly Budget to the Boys. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 7 February 1919
NEWS OF YOUR FRIENDS. A Weekly Budget to the Boys. Dear Comrades —Ship after ship is bringing you home to Aussie, but there is no rose without a thorn, ana the thorn in this case is the influenza fiend. There seems to have been a mix-up down South in regard to troopships arriving and worry resulted. The position is of s course very simple. The Authorities are striving to do their duty to the Com monwealth, while the returned soldiers want to get home as soon as possible. That is the situation. It is very easy to ' understand how slips could be made, and a slip certainly seems to have been made in neglecting to coal the transport 'Nestor' and so allowing the troops to proceed right on to Brisbane. It was not, however, so much the re *- — -v . r fotioii'of the GbVerriih^nt to the' troops^ on board the transports as to the men who were placed in camp in Victoria, although not in quarantine. Funny how [ statements disagree, is it not? For the ' Acting Minister for Defence has been | say...
