SPORTING HIGHLIGHT BOO! [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 23 June 1939
SPORTING HIGHLI THT BOO I Fromi time immemorial the football umpire has been the butt of a section rof the cashi customers. For some barrackers the .day is not complete if they don't abuse the unfortunate umpire. Umpiring is a thankless job.' Umpilres'i'e born, not made. That is why so many irritate barrackers-they iare unsuited for their jobs. Too many are influenced by the crowd; too many allow the crowd to award free kicks. . If the umpire has not sufficient strength of character to adjudicate solo, instead of in chorus with the crowd, then he should not be in the game. League rules don't -help the umpire. They have spoilt the great Australian game, and the. sooner junior competitions dump them and play the Association throw-pass the better for the iigame. This football is' goals ahead of the basher type of League football, and the result is an easier game to umpire. The free kicks are more easily defined, and there is less cause for dissatisfaction with the "umpie." Sometimes fa...

The hearty'one continued: "I think you are a good Labor man, eh?" As editors learn to be "very diplo matic, our man ,griined his reply with a knowing look. The Digger's remarks gave us food for thought the following afternoon. Remember, the event was a' smoke social, and deep thinking on the fol lowing morning would not be expect ed, particularly by a dinkum Digger nd our friend appeared to be 100 per cent '"dinkum." The result of our labored thoughts was that pe...

Head correspondence, fSafety Valve.") UNEMPLOYMENT QUESTION. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Listening to the pleasant Sun day afternoon service from Wesley Church I heard the speaker refer to the enormous amount of unemploy ment 'existing and suggest raising the school leaving age to 17 years? and teach a trade or profession to children to make them useful citizens when they leave, as a solution to'the prob lem. May I suggest thrdugh your columns that the school leaving age be left as it is, but the full basic wage of the male section be raised to, say, 24 years of age instead of 21. My reason is that very few youths of today are capable of taking a fully paid position at 21, and of course the employer can not afford (in these days of keen com petition) to pay the full wage to an incompetent person. ...
