SEARCH FOR WASTE STIRS DEPARTMENTS Committee Faces Test THE WEEK IN POLITICS [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953
SEARCH FORWASTE STIRS DEPARTMENTS Committee Faces Test ¡THE WEEK IN POLITICS-; By Our Polillical Correspondent JTEDERAL Parliament's new baby, the Public Accounts Committee --which many politicians expected would find itself groping innocu- ously in the dark, bamboozled by shrewd Public servants who knew all the answers-has already con- founded the sceptics and got itself into the limelight. LAST week it became " the centre of politi- cal controversy which im- mediately raises funda- mental questions as to its usefulness as guardian of the public money against extravagance or ineffi- ciency in Government, OT against the simple, human process of job-building at other people's expense. lt did so not by being innocuous, as the sceptics expected, but by getting down to the heart of the matter, lt also found itself involved in controversy as soon as it possibly could with its very first report on any Gcfernmcnt départ- aient. The committee's report on ' the Department of National Develop...

The Sun-Heraald. SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1953 SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE STATE [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1953 SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE STATE T)ECENT people in New South Wales are dis- mayed and disgusted as scandal after scandal comes to light in the public affairs of the State. Hardly a week passes without some fresh disclosure of dishonesty or laxity, and ugly rumours of corruption in other cases are freely circulated. Evidence given before the Liquor Commission re- vealed abuses on the grand scale, and held Sydney up to Australia-wide scorn. While the judge's findings were still awaited, the Doyle-Arthur Commission brought new shocks. It showed that misdoing was not confined ta the city's less reputable resorts, but extended into Parliament House itself. It is disgraceful and damaging to public faith in the Legislature that a rogue like Doyle should have been able to establish his headquarters in Mac- quarie Street, enjoy the facilities of the House, and use it as a "front" for his fraudulent operations. Nor, as another unsav- oury inquiry has since dis- closed, w...
Can We Avoid The Means Test? M.P.s ADMIT IT IS NOT ETHICAL, BUT ARE AFRAID TO END IT [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953
Can We Avoid The Means Test? ! M.P.S ADMIT IT IS NOT I ETHICAL, BUT ARE AFRAID TO END IT By A Special Correspondent 1 ABOLITION of the means test is an article of faith with most Federal Parliamentarians. But like so many, dogmas, it is not very scrupulously adhered to. nPHIS payment of lip : service to the moral arid ethical justification for abolition of the means test, while maintaining its operation, may seem, at first sight, hypocrisy. But it becomes explicable in the light of the effect which abandonment of the means test would have upon Govern- ment finance in Australia. The figures speak for them- selves. In Australia there are 906,000 people entitled-by age-to receive pensions from the Commonwealth Govern- ment. Largely because of the means test but partly because so many still believe that the age pension represents a Gov- ernment charity rather than a - taxpayer's right, only 380,000 men and women draw the age pension, at a cost to the rev- enue and taxpayers of £66,100,0...

The tug-of-war about Trieste FACT'S London News Bureau [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953
The tug-of-war about Trieste FACT'S London News Bureau ÇHILDREN whim- pered as parents and grandparents waved their hands despairingly. When they tried to pass through barbed wire marking a 20-yard wide strip of No-Man's Land, Yugoslav troops ordered them back. This was the human crisis this week of people caught up in the international dispute about the Trieste territory, at the head of the Adriatic Sea. Hundreds of Slovenes and Italians were used to moving freely between Trieste Free Territory's two zones - Zone A, under Anglo-American con- trol, and Zone B, run by Yugoslavia. Suddenly the U.S. and British Govern- ments announced that they would with- draw their 10,000 troops from Zone A and let Italy take it over. Immediately Yugoslavia's dictator Premier Marshal Tito threatened that any Italian troops who entered Zone A would be met with bayonets. Trains and trucks moved 4,000 more Yugoslav troops in to reinforce the 5,000 garrison in Zone B and take up positions in Yugoslavia's...
PIPES WOULD STIR MACHLEJD From A Staff Correspondent In New York [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 18 October 1953
PIPES WOULD STIR MACHLEJD From A Staff Correspon- dent In New York WHAT Mecca is to Moslems, centu- ries-old Dunvegan Castle, in the Isle of Skye, is to members of the Macleod clan ail over the world. They may spell it Mac- Leod, Maclcoud, M'Lewd, M'GIaud, M'Cloid, or even (as they do in Poland) Machlejd, but to thc heads of the Macleod clan, they are all one family, and the castle should be "borne." In America bagpipes are skirling, tartans are being taken out of moth-balls, and the fiery blood of Olave the Black is stirring in thc veins of some 30,000 Macleods. The cause of the excite- ment is a pink-cheeked, blue eyed, motherly little woman of 75-Dame Flora Mac- leod, first woman chief of the 1,000-ycar-old clan, who has come to the United States to urge clan members to "come home" to Dun- vegan, if only for a visit. 1 She was piped ashore by members of the New York National Guard . bagpipers and then set out on a tour of the United States. In a broadcast over a nationwide networ...
