THE FOOD VALUE OF CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 21 April 1915

THE FOOD VALUE OF CHEESE. Tlio groat impetus in the demand for cheesc given by tho war in the lirst place for its kcoping ami portable quali ties, is now being based quite as much upon its recognised food value. A com parison of the food value of cheese •villi Unit of llie other highly nitrogen ous materials, goes to prtXve this. Xo kind of meat, excepting dried beef, car ries such a large percentage of protein as cheese. JViesh beef as purchased has, weigh . for weight, a little more than half the food value of cheese in either protein or fat, and the same is true of practically all other meats. Bacon or fat pork are exceptions, but their food value is mostly in the fat, which can be, and is, replaced to a great extent by tlie carbohydrate of vegetables at a less cost, anil sometimes, perhaps, with benefit to the health of the consumer. Or, to put the matter another way, one pound of cheeso has nearly the same food value as two pounds of fresh beet, or any other fresh moat, as food...

THE LABOR PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 21 April 1915

=jhb1«ab0r- party. At ita Easter conference the Victorian Labor Party decided that no member of its leagues may be attached to any other organisation which selects and recommendB candidates for seats in Parliament. The decision was /arrived at after a long and heated discussion,and has created a very bitter feeling which may have an important bearing on the future fortunes of the party. The bit terness is due to a conviction that the motion, defining the position of Labor, is aimed at an «cc!esiastical organisation. But the strength of the feeling exci ted shows how little the ordinary elector in either camp realises the growing power of the ma chine or the political serfdom to which its ultimate triumph must reduce us. The decision arrived at by the Labor conference was absolutely logical; more, it was the necessary, the inevitable out come, of the principle on which pre-election of candidates is baaed. A man cannot serve two masters, When an elector chooses to join a Labor league ...

The Pioneer. CRESSY, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 21 April 1915

CRESSi. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21. THE figurea in the statement which Mr Fisher read at the opening of Parliament set thoughtful men musing on an Imperial wealth, almost unboun ded in its extent. A few months ago Great Britain lent Australia millions, to-day it is lending more millions,like golden streams are flowing to all parts of the Oversea Dominions, whilst the mother country's own expendi ture on army and navy reaches a total which ^taggers the imag-1 ination. So vast are the resour ces of the Empire that, for the moment, the Treasurer's finan cial difficulties seem to have vanished into thin air, and the one danger is that he and those behind him may be tempted to plunge into unnecessary and therefore reckless expenditure. Mr Cook, as leader, heartily sup ported by the rank and file of the Liberal party, has supported Ministers with splendid loyalty. That loyalty must be maintained, but it must not degenerate into slackness. In all that concerns j defence of Australia, support of |...
