BUNKER ANSWERED. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 9 June 1939
BUNKER ANSWERED. (To the Editor.) Sir,--Bunker's letter in last week's issue of the "Standard" is, to my, mind, pure bunkum. He side tracks the public hall issue in his desperate efforts to secure a free advertise ment for the bowling green on which venture some citizens who could ill afford to do so, sank pounds hard earned by them, I venture the opinion that if the coufcil can take over and reconstruct. a bowling greele used by a few, that such council can take over and re constluct 'the Mechanics' ]-IHall used by many. "Bunker's" letter appears to bear the trade mark of a certain Davey street concern where the principals are moss covered with age. and in activity. "Bunker" evidently be longs or is allied to a certain unin telligent section of the community brainless enough to believe that a decent public" hall ranks behind a bowling green. I, admit that in most centres, the aged and infirm patron ise bowling greens, whereas talent of both young and old is developed educationally ...

Abolish the Dole! (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 9 June 1939
Abolish the Dole! (To the Editor.) .·ir.-Splendid, indeed, if we could do i,. 't o abolish what has become vulgarly known as the dole, we first nmust abolish that which brought it about, unemployment. To abolish un employment, we must, as a matter of necessity, place people in their own calling at a decent and remunerative living wage, whereby they may be en abled to purchase the necessities and a few. of the luxuries of this life. The dole, with unemployment so rampant the world over, in this rush ing, tearing age of machines and mechanisation, which gets us nowhere or to any ultimate goal than chaos and discomfort, was established by various Governments as a relief mea sure-temporary-when first gazetted by law, to prevent and protect people who lost their means of livelihood through becoming unemployed, from starvation. But'at the time when the dole was first established to the pre sent day, and to the days yet to dawn, one did or does' not need to be a necromancer to know and rea...
