"Everybody's Dog." [Newspaper Article] — Kooweerup Sun, Lang Lang Guardian and Cranbourne Shire Record — 24 July 1918

L'ike our own soldiers, the Ameri can "Rookie" has a vocabulary rich in words which you) will find in no dictionary. He may, for example, have the utmost respect for his cap tain, but he dearly loves1 to dub. him the "old man" \pr the "skipper," to 'distinguish him from the "shaye tail," who is known more Jpolitely a^ "the second lieutenant." H'is general he christens "Old High Horse," <. or "Hot Air," for short, without mean ing the least" disrespect. The corpor al he addresses as "Corp" and his sergeant as "Sargd," unless he is a senior sergeant, when he calls him "Top-cutter." The quartermaster sergeant is "Everybody's Dog." To the American Tommy his food is always "show"—a word that sug gests a Chinese origin—and his' daily, bread is known as "pink." . "Sow belly" is a pet name for bacon, which he enjoys»in the company of "Boston bullets" or beans. (When he wants beef-stew he calls for "slum" ; his cup of coffee is "boot-leg" ;j every sort of pie, from pumpkin t to ap...

WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, 1918. OUR FIRST ISSUE. 'fhe first issue of the "Sun and G uardian'' in its new form was well received by the public, and various complimentary remarks were) made as to the appearance of the paper. Perhaps it was a happy augury that the. sun shone out brightly on pub lication day, the first time for some 'days, after a particularly bad spell of weather. However, while we ap preciate compliments, practical sym pathy and assistance is required if this paper is to become a live insti tution for the development of the districts through which it circu lates. Everybody should subscribe to it, and do their utmost to help - iti along the road to success. After all, a newspaper belongs to the people— it is. their medium for a great many things, and in its success depend^ upon the support given to it.
