P.L.C. PRE-SELECTION BALLOT. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
P.L.C. PRE-SELECTION BALLOT. (To the Editor. Sir,-In my letter of last week I find that I made a regrettable mistake. Among the rumors afloat in regard to that ballot I included one, affirming that Mr. Cotter had addressed a meet ing of unionists at a local factory. I find on inquiry that this rumor is un founded, and I now hasten to with draw it from the charges I then made. Mr Cotter did not address a meeting at the factory to which I was referring. When I made mention of this rumor I had every reason for believing that it was founded on fact; this must be my excuse. Yours, etc., GERALD R. BALDWIN. 368 Church St., Richmond. February 8, .1917.
Famous Jewish Actor on Richmond Theatre Screen—Fine Portrayal of Flapper Who Turns Pirate is Attractive Offering for Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
Famous Jewish Actor on Richmond Theatre Screen--Fine Portrayal of Flapper Who Turns Pirate is Attrac tire Offering for Thursday. Barney Bernard, who created Abe Potash in "Potash and Perlmutter" in America, has gone over to the movies. He has scored a big success in his first production, A Prince mn a Pawn shop. It is a picture which leaves a feeling of satisfaction by its charm and honesty. Bernard appears as a Jewish banker who decides to assist Ithe poor with the money of the rich. It is as good a piece of restrained, realistic acting as has been seen on the screen for many a day. It will be submitted at the Richmond Theatre on Monday, when The First Command ment, a three-reel Kalem drama, and Dollars and Sense, a double-reel Trian gle comedy, will be the supporting stars. Flapperdom has never been more faithfully represented than by Gladys Hulette in Prudence the Pirate. It is a merry story of a flapper who, for her escapades, is relegated to the nur sery wvhile the rest of the ...

St. Stephen's Harriers. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
St. Stephen's Harriers. Although a compulsory parade pre vented several juniors from attena ing the club outing at Blackburn on Saturday, the attendance was satis factory, and the keenness displayed in the various events (for which no prizes of any sort are awarded) was very marked. Proceedings opened with a 75 yds. handicap, run in three heats, with the following results:-First heat: 1, G. Baker;. 2, L. Green. Second heat: 1, A. Rudd; 2, H. Webb. Third heat: 1, R. Badenach; 2, J. Hill. The final provided a splendid race, R. Badenach (7 yds.) winning by a yard from A. Rudd (3 yds.), who was a foot ahead of G. Baker (scr.). The next event, the relay race, proved very interesting, G. Baker, R. Badenach, L. Green and R. Holt win ning by fiveyards from the team cap tained by H. Webb. Partners were drawn for the Sia mese race, some amusing pairs re sulting." The competitors, however, soon adapted themselves to the situ ation, and after a few trial spins a good start was effected, and in ...

TOPICS OF THE WEEK. Personal. MIr. and Mrs. C. R. McNaughton are spending the summer months at their seaside residence at Mordialloc. Thousands Attend Record Recruiting Meeting, but Only Old Man and Boys Step Forward-Kiss of Girl Wins but Tear-Sodden Appeal Fails-A Remarkable Gathering. Played in by a military band from Royal Park camp, which had previous ly traversed the principal streets, the biggest indoor recruiting meeting held in Victoria took place at the Cinema Theatre, Bridge-road, on Thursday night. It is estimated that over 3000 persons were present. Every seat was occupied and many people stood in the passage-ways, while children-who had flocked in despite all precautions to the contrary-sat around on the floor in front of the stage and viewed with awe and wonder the first show ing here of the well-conceived and ar ranged-new "recruiting" films. They are in five reels, and present a graphic appeal. .The recruiting committee had spared no trouble to get a big at tendance....
Captain Cautious. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
Captain Cautlouo. Time after time counsel had tried to draw something important from a seafaring mani who was in the witness box. "You say your boat picked up the accused at nine o'clock," said the barrister wearily, but still determined to gain some ground "Now, it has been stated that he jumped overboard nearly an hour before that time. Tell me, (Captain Black, how he apllppeare to you when you picked himn up! If you had been asked to glve an opiuion of him then, what wouldl you have said?" There was a long pause. The Captain looked thoughtffIl, lthen st'lrk ed his beard. "A-ah. well." be an swered eventually, "I tell you candid now, if somebody asked me Ithen. just when we took ilm aboard, what I thought of him. I should thvye said straight out, insult or no insult, that he was one of the wetlesl men?. If not the very wettest man. that I ever seed!"
PRISON FOR COLD SPREADERS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
PRISON FOR COLD SPREADERS. By the Cantankerous Crank. Someone ought to start a campaign against colds. Why should a person who Is in the grip of a cold or of influenza be al lowed to go about and infect others? Why shouldn't it be compulsory for people with colds or mild attacks of influenza to be isolated, just as it is compulsory for people suffering from scarlet fever or smallpox to be Iso!a ted? 1 am quite unable to answer these questions; 1 can only suggest that It should be compulsory. I'm not sure that people who spread colds shouldn't be sent to prison. If employers of labor of a.l kinds seriously combined togeth-r, believe they could almost stamp out the plague of colds which attacks the country every year. If I were an employer I would not allow a worker of mine with even the symptoms of a cold or intluensa tn my place of business for an instant; I would make it a hard anti fast rule that no employe should dare to risk infecting the rest of my staff by his or her presence....
America's Harvest TREMENDOUS WAR EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
America's Harvest TREMENDOUS WAR EXPORTS. The returns of the war exports from United States for the whole year have not been published, but up to the end of August, that is to say, for the first eight months of 1916, the value o'f the war material exported was £171.000,000; for the whole of 1915 it was £124,000,000. It is estimated that the total war export for 1916 has prob ably passed £300,000,000. On Janu ary 1, 1916, the value of war orders was said to be £400,000,000. From this it is evident that there are a large number of orders placed last year still to be completed. Of the totals dur ing the first eight months,£109,000,000 were for war munitions, that is to say, explosives, firearms, acids, aero planes and wire. £21,800,000 were for war accessories, viz., motor cars, motor cycles, scientific instruments, and petrol. £40,000,000 were for war supplies, viz., horses and mules, rail way cars, metal working machinery (£11,000,000 worth), sheet rails, boots and shoes.
OPEN COLUMN GYM. GIRLS AND "PROMISE." (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
OPEN COLUMN GYM. GIRLS AND "PROMISE." (To the Editor. ) Sir,-Whatever is the matter with the Richmond Council? They got the girls to give a display in the towin hall-the council got the cash, but forgot to give the girls a cup of tea from the Mayor's room. The girls have had to pay their own exponses, even to providing their own costumes. I don't know the instructor from a crow, but I'll put a shilling in the box for him when it comes around. He will appreciate it. The council has, by means of the gym. girls, had its municipal gymnasium advertised all over Australia-and even in the trenches in France. Ask the Mayor to show you his smile when he saw it in Sydney. The council has, in fact, had so much praise that now they think they own the girls, body and soul -but most of them belong to soldiers in France. So the council carried its motion directing (not requesting) the girls not to appear at the Cinema Theatre, Bridge-road. Why object to the Cinema? The girls very rightly resented ...
Altered 75's BURST INTO 2000 PIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
Altered 75's BURST INTO 2000 PIECES. The main alteration in the famous 75 shell since the war began has been the increased number of fragments into which the projectile breaks. One of these shells now bursts into more than 2000 pieces, some of them so small' as to wound fatally without making a conspicuous abrasion on the skin. The tiniest of particles posses ses so great a velocity as to inflict grave injuries at 30 or 40 yards from the spot where the shell bursts.

Risks Avoided. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
Risks Avoided. "John Henry," said Mrs. Peddicord, to her husband, "as soon as you get through your supper I want you to take up the carpet in the sitting-room so that I can have it cleaned." "Maria Jane," replied John Henry, "let me tell you of a sad occurrence which happened a few days ago." "Well?" "A man whose name I have forgot ten, but which can be ascertained if necessary, for the newspaper in which I saw the account printed it in full, undertook to take up a carpet. In some way the tack extractor slipped, and a rusty tack pierced his thumb. He thought nothing of it at the time; but in the night his .thumb began to swell. The pain became excruciating. A physician was sent for, who did his best to alleviate the poor man's suf ferings, but without avail. Blood-pois oning set in, and the poor fellow died in great agony." "Well?" again remarked Mrs. Peddi cord, as her husband ceased speaking. "Well, dear, you surely do not in sist upon your husband taking up the sitting-room carpe...
"Les Slacker" FIVE-REEL FIGHT. AMUSING NEW YORK SKIT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
" Les Slacker" FIVE-REEL FIGHT. AMUSING NEW YORK SKIT. W. O. M'Geehan, boxing writer for the New York "Tribune," is respon sible for one of the liveliest sportin.4 satires that has come across the Pa cific for long time. It is the scen ario for a five-reel film, and it pro ceeds: Reel I. Les Slacker, a poor but ambitious pugilist, is riding through the streets of Sydney, Australia, in his last year's limousine. He has tasted oothilng but food all day, and has nothing to pro tect him from the cold but a sealskin coat of simple cut. The thought that be has but a few hundred thousand pounds between himself and starva tion causes him to register sorrow. Suddenly the sound of the bagpipes is heard off stage, and a recruiting squad files in. The sergeant halts the limousine. "Why don't you come and fight, my lad?" demands the recruiting ser geant. "You should be a fighter with those shoulders." "I am a fighter" returns Les Slack er haughtily. "I am ready to fight at any time to obtain mon...

"The Barrage" RUNNING THE GAUNTLET. LIKE A PASSING RUSH. HURRICANE OF SHELL FIRE, . . . . . -.. · . ? - .. It happened upon a certain .after noon not long after my arrival in France that my sergeant and myself found ourselves just before "stand-to," during an inspection tour of our tele phone lines, in a front trench, writes "Subaltern" in "Lloyd's." We had halted a moment to gaze upon the body of a very dead Bavarian sprawl ing untidily in No Man's Land, when suddenly the ground trembled under our feet as though some subterran ean Samson were shaking. the very foundations of the earth. "A mine," exclaimed my sergeant, and in the same instant there leapt up into the grey dusk away on our right a fountain of livid flame and cruimbled earth. There was the grumbling, rumbling crescendo of an explosion that seemed interminable, and then, as though it had been a sig nal from the Underworld ordaining the end of all things, Pandemonium was unleashed. It seemed that every gun, every mortar,...
