The Pioneer. CRESSY. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 31 [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 31 March 1915

CRESSV WEDNESDAY", MARCH 31 Day by by day men realise more dearly that the issue of the great1 struggle in Europe must be de termined largely by the indus trial efficiency of the peoples concerned. Russia haa prohibi ted the sale of vodka, France has put away absinthe, Great Britain is dealing with the liquor trade simply and solely in the interests of national efficiency. More sur prising, still, Mr Asquith and his colleagues, Liberals without any sympathy without Socialism, are quietly taking compulsory con trol of factories, determining: priees and profits, decreeing that there shall be no strikes,no shirk ing, that employer and employed alike are simply 'citizens, and that, whilst the State is in dan ger, all must hold their lives and their property, be that property trained muscle of costly plant, at the disposal of the community. It is to be regretted that in Great Britain, and also here in Austra lia there are a few blind leaders of the blind who are preaching the deadly doct...

RABBIT DESTRUCTION. The Federal Government ana the various State Governments of Australia are at their wits end as to how to deal with the big army of unemployed. The rabbit is by far the greatest peat in Australia, and is rapidly in creasing. The rabbit turned into food is a relish. How would the j other nations appreciate it as a | food ? Why cannot a scheme be ' worked successfully to send the j unemployed into badly-infested districts to trap rrbbits.and have them forwarded to the freezing works and exported ? The rab bits could be paid for by the hun dred, or by the thousand, or some other convenient way. What would be the result ? 1. After several years millions of acres that are useless to the | owner and useless to the State j would be converted into rich grazing and agricultural land. The State would then carry mil- i lions mare Rheep.and there would be a large increase in the agri cultural area. 2. The landowner would be re lieved of the great burden of rabbit destruction;...
