LET'S WRITE A LETTER MR. C. CROFTS. A.C.T.U., Trades Hall C.1. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 23 June 1939
LET'. WRITE, A LETTER MR. cC. CROFTS, A.C.T.U., Trades Hall, c.1. Dear Sir,--The decision of your council to attempt to boycott the National Register is not likely to gain anyl new friends for the Labor Party; in fact, it is sure to lose thousands of those unattached votes which win an "election. Youn council, by some species of discernment which it alone possesses, sees in the National Register the first step to conscription. We cannot agree with your decision. We claim to be democratic, and yet can see no harm in a national stocktaking. If that stocktaking only took into account human lives We would object, but as wealth is also to be brought to account, we agree with the Federal Government's decision. The bogey of conscription should be buried and forgotten. By conscription we take. it you mean compulsory overseas service. Never again, Mr Crofts, will it be possible (or advisable) to transport 350,000 of the flower of our manhood across the seas. Modern warfare would make' it imp...

PUBLIC HALL DISCUSSION. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 23 June 1939
PUBLIC HALL DISCUSSION. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I decided, after writing the letter last week, that it would flhish nmy correspondence on the public hail question. Disgusted's . inability 'to understand the meaning of my pre vious letter, his curt rejection of my well-intentioned and friendly advice, the ridiculous construction whic'h he drew from my reference to certain street gardens forced me' to conclude that it was futile( to continue any fur ther controversy with him. The 'well known couplet '(slightly altered), written by an eighteenth century poet, aptly sums up his ability as a contro versialist, for so far he only "Compounds for 'schemes' he is inclined to, ? By damn~ing those he has no mind: to:" In your last week's issue a peculiar letter appears .under the iname of R. C. W?ells. ' In this 'letter"Mr'Wells ex presses his'determination that the in controvertible'reasonis he has for the erection of' a public hall will not be formulated in a letter to the press. It also conta...

HALL AND HOSPITAL. To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 23 June 1939
HALL AND HOSPITAL. To the Editor.) Sir,-In last week's issue Bunker discloses the 'fact that he is well and truly bunkered, and is incapable of making the fairways. The. proposed donation by the shire council of £1000 to thle building fund of a community hospital, to "say nothing of: future gigantic' maintenance costs of such hospital if estabilished, reveals prob ably the reason wily the Frinkston' cotincil has not fulids' available for productive works, to wit, the construe: tion of a new pu'blic hall or. the re constr'iction of the present Mechanics' Hall, consequently with this letter I shasll retire from the 'public hall con troversy. Ratepayers will no doubt recollect that just three years ago, in August, they were asked to re-elect a certain- councillor to enable a public was made, months-yes, years-have passed, and nowv approaching August, with 'the personnel of the local 'coun cil unchanged, ratepayers are stag gered to learn that the 'organisation of voluntary funds to bui...

You Can't Take It With You [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 23 June 1939
You Can't Take It With You The world is beset with troubles, turmoil, financial disasters; threats of war, unemployment, poverty and numerous other ills. What is the cause? Briefly put, JONEY and MACHINERY. We will lqave the latter for another day, and try and discover why money is the root evil of most things. A study of human nature in almost every country will show that a big percentage of the people have cast aside Christ foi the worship of mammon. Even many church goers still imagine they are followingv Christ when, i' the secret de'pths of their hearts, mammon is their first and only god. In the human greed for mnoney peopile trampi1e their fellow citizen's in thli duist, tirow them out of work, starve their children, extort crippling interest charges, give little to charity, and do almost everything which would have brought down upon them, if they had lived two thousand years ago, the bitter denunciations of the Carpenter of Nazareth. In their relentless pursuit of more and s...

"FELIX HOLT" SAYS [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 23 June 1939
"FELIX HOLT" SAYS THAT a visit to the Stadium is .a necessity if you are intent on broadening your mind and your outlook. There you will meet all classes -doctors, laborers, clergymen, artisans, lawyers, big busihess men, loafers, jockeys, clerks, gunmen, bookmakers-all blended together into "one big happy family." The spirit of camaraderie is highly developed among Stadium habitues. No formal introduction is needed with your neighbor, and if your luck is in you will probably be sharing his beer before the first prelim fighters have danced themselves to a standstill. A Stadium crowd gives vent to its feelings in a very decided man ner; there are no half-measures about these lads. If the continuously moving referee stops for a second to watch the boys he is soon moved on by a hundred voices telling him in no uncertain manner to "get out of the way!" The crowd loves a trier. Even it a boy takes.a lacing, if he tries his best to fight back he earns as much applause as the victor at the...
