Lady Cowley (President of the Comforts Fund) and Mrs. namuton, naci a cnarmmg stan at Stewart Dawson's corner.

WOOL SPINNING GUILD. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 24 November 1916

WOOL SPINNING GUILD. There are some who tell of the Red V Cross Work, The part they play in this, war ; The Y.M.C.A., who care for our boys, No matter wherever they are. Then there is the Repatriation scheme, And the Comforts Fund as well ; Each helping the boys who have done their part, XT _ 1_ 1 ?

But the squatter, who knew, sends them some wool, Shorn from the sheep of his flocks j 'While they sit at the wheel, and spin into yarn, To knit for our soldiers' socks. Some women from England come, as dainty as a rose, And some from Erin, lovely as a summer's dream, Others from Bonny Scotland, where heather blooms and grows. While fair Australia, with her wattle, reigns supreme. They sit and spin together, this fair united band, Not to dispute on politics or laws ;? But sit and work each day, for dear...

OF INTEREST TO WOMEN. (By Veritas.) The War Time Girl. These years — 1914-16 — have brought -many changes, but, perhaps, no change so great as that of the outlook on life of the average Australian girl. It is so long ago since we met the ' light-hearted, irresponsible ' Average Australian Girl.' When was it ? She really disappeared about August 1914 — that first show week, after war was declared, when most of the gaieties which had been pre-arranged were Violrl oc ncnol On +I-1/3 rapfmnnrsp at 11V.4U UU UOUUJi v/il UXJIV A Uv^v^vv W- I. the show, at dinners, balls and theatres, there she was, in her pretty frocks, voting it ' a nuisance ' that there were no ships in, and consequently fewer partners than usual, hoping ' the horrid war would not last long,'!' and that ' things would soon brighten up again,' that was all, for she never dreamt, any more than the rest of us, that' this war-cloud that had just risen; on the horizon would spread and spread as it has done, until it has enve...

CHEERFUL TOWNSHEND. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 24 November 1916

-CHEERFUL TOWNSHEND. What I liked about General Towns heftd, when I knew him, says a man who was at one time intimate with him, was that there was nothing of the strong, silent man about him.

And he's a great soldier. /: Merit, like the show inside a . circus,' is of comparatively little use . - as ,a: , drawing card ; it is the bluff and- b|uri- ' combe, the banging drum and. mega-* phone of the barker which is the. successful magnet. ? ; ^ p ' ? ?. 1st Boarding House Keeper : -'.Do- ? you keep your boarders ?: longi : - ;Mrs/ ' ?* ; £ ' ' Starve-em . ..
