A PRODIGY. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

A PRODIGY. * ? A gentleman 'ving just outside of Chicago went into the city to his office each day* When he was leaving home on the morning before Christmas, his wife said she would like him to bring a banner for her Sunday-sehool class to use at an entertainment that evening, but that she did not yet know the wording and ' size needed. They agreed that she should send him a telegram during the day, giving him these two items. Consequently, before starting, for ; home iii the afternoon, he went to tlie near-by telegraph office and found quite an exreitement oyer the message which had just b^en re ceived and which read: 'Unto us a child is born. Three feet wide and six feet lonl?.' The A.Mx.I.E.U. officials of the North don't like the secret ballot. 'Socialists' afraid1 of Socialism is not a bad description of theri^. By applying flo the nearest Shire, Council an unemployed soldier MIGHT get an easy piqk and-shovel job specially provided by the Won the-War crew! ' ? \

GOT THERE JUST THE SAME. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

GOT THERE JUST THE SAME. American troops in France received a more ' ' ' careful and prolonged training than could pos sibly be given most of the regiments hurriedly raised during the Civil War. General Pershing teils the story of a volunteer battalion of rough backwoodsmen that once joined General Grant. He admired their fine physique, but distrusted the capaciay of their uncouth commander to handle troops promptly and efficiently in the field, so he said: ? ? 'Colonel, I want to see your men at work; , j call them to attention, and order them to march with shouldered arms in close column to the left flank.' Without a moment's hesitation the colonel yelled to his fellow ruffians: 'Boys, look wild V thar! Make ready to thicken and go left end- ? ways! Tote yer guns! Git!' The maneuver proved a brilliant' success and the self-elected colonel was forthwith officially commissioned.

Did he have the power to commune with the Dead? Was it a premoni tion of how he would feel when he, too, would join those who to-day lie under the soil their blood painted redder than the red petals of poppies? Shortly after writing 'In Flanders' Fields' Colonel McCrea went 'West.' Our great Dead are lying under the foreign skies. In the olden days, before the war, we knew the...

"Digger" [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

'Digger.' (By Lieut. W. O'Brien.) Just a simple title— but what a significance is embodied therein, a significance deep and strong* as the outgoing tide. What a complex ity of character it covers — simple yet with a , hint of swagger, careless yet indomitable, an unassuming exterior that holds within, as the ' ^ rugged oyster shell conceals a pearl, a soul of sacrifice and heroism. What memories the name cbnjures up as the curtain of the past is swept aside— the heaving transport, her decks asprawl with troops, the flip of cards or the absorption of 'House.'' The flapping tents when the Khamseen filled the stew \with desert sand, the stench, music, colour and racking noises of jabbering Cairo, the sweating/ packed nights in the 'Grand Cafe Egyptiene' with thp air pulsing with roaring chorus ' and the' orchestra's medley of National Anthems and Ragtime. The long night treks across the desert .with eyes heavy with denied sleep, with the heavens a dome of jewels and behind a trail mark...

Repatriation. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

Repatriation.] After all .he is only a lad. He tried to enlist on several occasions and was rejected on ac count of his youth. At last he succeeded at the age of 18 years and ten months- He was accepted and went to camp towards the end of 1918. But his enrollment for the A.I.F. came too late for the realisation of his dream to serve his country as a soldier. War was officially (?) declared 'off, '- and he was dis charged from camp. He tried to go back into civilian life, but having no trade found it hard to obtain employment. So he went to the Re patriation Department. They gave him sus tenance for a while, sent him to apply for two positions, only to find out, as it sometimes happens, that there were no vacancies, then offered him a job breaking stones in a quarry. He told them he could not do it. Breaking stones is no work for a lad of 19. Then his card was marked 'final payment.' Net result: penniless and homeless. The Australian Soldiers' Repatriation Act does not provide for th...

WHILE THE GOING WAS GOOD. A darky was ushered into the employment bureau of the Du Pont Powder Workg and plied with the usual questions put to all new hands taken on at th,e works. The old darky stood the examination pretty well, but was beginning to feel just a little bit 'oneasy' when one of the men suddenly asked: 'And who would you like to be notified in case of a serious accident?' « The darky paused and scratched his head a bit at this unexpected blow at his morale, but after a little while he thought of two persons who might like to know of his misfortune. Their names were written down. 'And now,' said one of the examiners, 'where would you like, youf remains shipped?' 'Where would I like my remains shipped?' repeated the darky in a groggy sort of voice.. j 'Boss, Ise gwine to take 'em away from here j right now! ' ' j

Bolsheviki—Rebels [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

Bolsheviki— Rebels 'By the grace of God — and fellow-worker Theodore— the Brisbane rebels have been very active lately and promise to be more so in the future.' Se begins an article entitled 'Brisbane Ac tive' and dealing with the O.B.U. Propagand ist's fight in 'The Proletariat,' a Sydney paper which claims to be the official organ of the I.I.W. (a revised name for the old and infamous I.W.W.) That organisation which stands for the or ganisation of O.B.U. is asking for 'job con trol,' which means paralysing the entire indus try of Australia and the substitution of the Bolshevistic regime for our present constitu tional government. What we may expect from the O.B.U. and the state of society it proposes to establish may easily be learned by all who can read. We notice with pleasure and relief that there is at last a section of our community i ' that will not stand for the introduction of the pernicious Bolshevistic propaganda into Aus tralia. While the war was on, the absence of a la...
