A MELVILLE MUDDLE [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921
A MELVILLE MUDDLE William Horner writes: — After the declaration of the poll at the Melville Roads Board Hall on Satur- day, April 9th, one of the successful candidates, in moving a vote of thanks to the returning officer, abused the de- feated candidates and their supporters to such an extent that the returning officer would not allow him to proceed. Another one, in supporting the motion, talked of giving me a good hiding. For men of great strength desirous of exhi- biting their fighting qualities there has been ample opportunities in other direc- tions far more equitable to show their abilities than kicking an opponent whose physical disabilities are such that be could not put up a good fight against a trained athlete. Other members of the Board have referred to me as a source of annoyance. If criticising the actions of the Board in a fair and honest manner, protesting against a statement made by a member of the Board which was entirely misleading, exercising my just rights as a r...
Commonwealth "Stores" [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921
Commonwealth "Stores" — o — J.V. writes: "The end of the 'fin- ancial year' approaches. We many victims— the poor wretches con- demned on account of their mani- fold sins to toil in Commonwealth Departments, and suffer the atroci- ties inflicted upon them by the Commonwealth Stores Branch — are wondering whether our stocks of office requisites for next year will be better than those of 1920,21, or. perish the thought, worse. Now, Comptroller, old man, you know perfectly well that the lines we've tuned you up over aren't fit for human consumption, even by Commonwealth public servants, so do, do, do, do something to improve on them. We have heard a whisper that you are ordering a brand of erasers that are just a little softer than bricks, also that you're getting in some sweet, clean, and wholesome ink. Let's hope it's true: but for heaving's sake, sling the old stack out. Better give it to the City Council— the rubbers for paving blocks, and the 'ink' for tar paving purposes.

PERCY BROOKFIELD MEMORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921
PERCY BROOKFIELD MEMORIAL. On Sunday, April 3, 1921, a mass meeting of Barrier unionists decided to raise a memorial to the memory of their late comrade, P J. Brook- field, M.L.A. for Sturt, in the form of a Labour College at Broken Hill, in order in educate the workers from a real working-class standpoint. It was also decided to raise a suitable memorial tombstone over the grave of their late comrade. The College will be open to work- ers throughout Australia, in keeping with its capacity. The Brookfield Memorial College, it is claimed, will be the forerunner of many similar institutions for the education of the workers in this country . Mr. Lovckin: "Pickled, stewed and soused, were words that had a meaning . . . ."—My oath, they have; a 'staggering' meaning."
A New Sporting Paper [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921
A New Sporting Paper ---- o—-- Now that football has reached such dimensions as a people's recre- ation, the want of a paper solely de- voted to the king of Australian out- &nbsp; door games has been sorely felt. This will be remedied next Satur- day, when the "W.A. Footballer'' will make its first appearanceini the West. The publication will have for its mentor, Mr. B. F. McMahon, whose experience in similar sporting productions in Adelaide ensures the success of this venture. Mr. Mc- Mahon has entered into an agree- ment with the Football League, cov- ering a period of five years, and has obtained the sole rights, of publish- ing the official numbers of the Lea- gue players. In addition, he has engaged only experts, men who have had practical experience as cham- pion players, to contribute to its pages. The football public have been clamoring for the "W.A. Foot baller," and we welcome its advent.
