NIGHT LIFE New Order in London BLACK OUTS [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
NIGHT LIFE New Order in London BLACK OUTS Cut of the dimness of London's black-out a new night-life is beginning to appear. Behind the shrouded door ways men and women about town, gas-masks in hand, are beginning to settle into a new life. Some of the familiar faces are miss ing, others have strange disguises in the form of A.R.P. wardens' or A.F.S. hats or armlets. Even the Chinese cook at the famous Kit-Kat Club is an air raid warden! Surely an ironical comment on to-day's nationalistic tendencies. Perhaps London's most luxurious air raid shelters can be found-jn Reg ent Street, for the premises of both the Cocoa-nut Grove and the Paradise have been approved hy the L.C.C. as conforming to the regulation require ments for oiiicial air raid shelters. The Cocoa-nut Grove is an approved public shelter for 210 people; all at tendants are A.R.P. wardens. In the event of an air raid the club doors will be open to all who seek shelter; tho ordinary cabaret and dance music will continue, a...
NAZIS SEEK WAY OUT Claims of Ark Royal Sinking LONDON, Dec. 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
NAZIS SEEK WAY OUT Claims of Ark Royal Sin Icing ('Mercury' Service) LONDON, Dec. 27. The German wireless to-day tried , to explain away the Nazi propaganda which claimed repeatedly that the British aircraft carrier Ark Royal harl been rtestroved The latest statement broadcast from Berlin is that the Nazi authori ties never claimed that the Ark Royal had been sunk, but only asked its whereabouts. This obvious falsehood followed constant claims recently that the Ark Royal was at the bottom of the sea.- - The Nazis evidently felt called upon to make some explanation, since they inadvertently announced during the stay of the Admiral Graf Spee at Montevideo that the Ark Royal had arrived at Buenos Aires. Just before this, pictures were re leased in South Africa and neutral countries showing the Ark Royal en tering Table Bay. ?
Christmas Lull Ends In West BOTH SIDES SEND OUT SCOUTING PARTIES LONDON, December 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
Christinas Lull Ends In West BOTH SIDES SEND OUT SCOUTING PARTIES ('Mercury' Service) LONDON, December 27. The Christmas lull on the western front ended to-day when the fog lifted. Both sides sent out numerous reconnaissance parties, particularly between the Luxembourg front ier and the Saar River, with the object of dis covering whether the lull had been employed to make important changes or to reinforce outposts. Contact with the enemy, involving sustained fighting, was reduced to a minimum. It was pointed out that another GO days at the most would elapse before winter conditions in a mili tary sense ceased to exist. The Allies must he prepared for ail enemy offensive by the end of February 'at the latest. The French night communique re ported very marked activity of pat rols and reconnaissance parties. It added that the French navy sunk three U-boats during the last three weeks. LUXEMBOURG FEARS ('Mercury' Service) LONDON, Dec. 27. Tile greatest uneasiness was caused in Luxembour...
German Ships Waiting BALBOA, December 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
German Ships W aiting ? ? » — ('Mercury' Service'! BALBOA, December 27. It is believed that Ger man ships in neutral ports, which are allegedly in structed to return to Ger many, have delayed start ing in the hopes that the : belligerent's will accept the Pan-American Republics' protest- against the viola- ' tion of the safety zone by . warships. . This , will give the ships greater security. The Germans consider that the risk of the run is worth taking, since port dues, naintenance of crews, and dissention among the latter is proving costly. Shipping circles express the opin ion that there is a possibility of less scuttling of overtaken ships if no tice is given to Germany that the crews must save themselves. ANOTHER SINKING LONDON, Dec. 27. The seamer, Torwood, laden with carbide, was sunk in the North Sea after an explosion. Seven of the 11 members of 'the crew were rescued. The steamer, Ciudad de Melilla, rescued the crew of the German freighter Glucksburg, which British warship...
PREPARATIONS FOR BIG ARMY CLASH More Concrete For Maginot Line [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
PREPARATIONS FOR BIG ARMY CLASH ' Magleot Line J (Daily War Commentary Issued by the Department of Information) Acfriviiy on the western front, never very great since the French ad vanced into the Saar in September, appears to have been suspended en tirely over the Christmas period. M. Daladier, in a speech in the Chamber of Deputies last Friday, gave the figures of French deaths on the western front to Nov ember 30 at 1 136. He said he preferred tha present situation to that of 1914. By Decem ber, 1914, France, although she had won the battle of the Marne, had lost 450,000 men. The French Government desired neither a premature offensive nor piecemeal assault? which might be too costly. Meanwhile, preparations are continuing for what may yet prove the greatest military clash in history. The whole French Army is pouring concrete lor an extended Maginot Line. In his Christmas tiroadcast the French Prime Minister said: 'We shall not take the initiative in in flicting new sufferings, bu...
STATE ACT Electoral Expenses LIMIT URGED SYDNEY, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
STATE ACT Electoral Expenses LIMIT URGED SYDNEY, Thursday. ? '??'?Mr. H. , B. Turner, M.L.A., for Gordon,, to-day urged an amend ment' of the State Electoral Act to provide for the fixing of a limit' as to the 'amount that can be spent by candidates at State elections. 'We have all heard people say that politicians are not worth £3 a week,' he said. 'It might gratify some to learn that after paying ex penses of three elections, my nett Parliamentary income will be sub stantially less even if Parliament runs its full course to April, 1911.' Mr. Turner also said that actually a limit of £100 was prescribed in the Commonwealth Electoral Act, but it had never been applied to the corresponding State Act, which had no such provision. Mr. J. R. Lee, member for Druni moyne, said that fighting State elec tions cost each candidate £300 to £700, according to the seat. Fighting a borderline seat in the metropolitan area, or the country, might cost £700, and this figure did not take into account...
