DEMOBILISING THE A.I.F. MEN TO RETURN UNDER THEIR OWN OFFICERS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919

DEMOBILISING THE A.I.F. ! MEN TO RETURN' UNDER THEIR   OWN OFFICERS. As far as practicable, the demobil- isation of the A.I.F. will be carried out by units, and the men will return to Australia under their own officers. In view of the expressed intention of the Commonwealth Government to bring back married men first, each unit will be divided into two parts. One part will consist of all the married men and long service details, and the other part of the single men. The half units consisting of soldiers who are married and men with long service will be demobilised first. The Australian Flying Corps will probably be returned as a complete nnit. With reference to a recently published statement that re -presentations had been made to Aus tralia that members of the Flying Corps should be demobilised at the first opportunity, the Minister of De -fence said yesterday that he knew nothing of the matter. The demobilis -ation of all units would be carried out as rapidly as possib...

LATROBE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919

LATROBE.'   Annual Meeting of Justices. - The     annual meeting of' the Justices of La-, trobe will be held at the Court House at 10 o'clock on Friday. The business will be to elect a chairman of the Court   of General Sessions for the ensuing   year. Since the creation of a Licensing Court, the procedure has been consid-   erably changed.     The Shale Works. - The matter of'   putting the shale works into operation   is one of vast importance to this dis- trict and also those adjoining. Ex -perts and official tests have shown that oil can be produced at a profit for less than half the amount which the Com -monwealth Government is paying the   importer, yet the fields are allowed to   lie idle and our resources to remain un- developed. In addition to this, the   money of the people is sent out of the country to pro...

"SHUFFLING THE CARDS." [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919

"SHUFFLING THE CARDS." The "New York World" says that there are sharp differences of opin- ion between M. Clemenceau and Presi- dent Wilson. "Historically," says the "World," "the President is standing on firmer   ground than is M. Clemenceau.   This war is the culminating tragedy of the balance of power system, which was devised to ensure peace, and which plunged the world into the most terrible war of all times.   "M. Clemenceau would continue to play the old game of European diplo- macy, but he will shuffle the cards differently, making Britain and the   United States underwrite the policy of France and Italy for all time. So far as the United States is concerned M. Clemenceau could hardly expect his proposal to have been seriously con- sidered by the American Government or by the American people. "Conceding everything that is said against it by its opponents, the League of Nations will still remain an inter- esting and hopeful ...

FAIR AND IMPARTIAL. TUESDAY, JANUARY 7 1919. WILL WILSON WIN ? Although superficially President Wil-   son has had a triumphant tour through Europe, it would be unwise to ignore the plain surface indications of the currents running below. It   was inevitable that in endeavoring to pilot such a gigantic conception of internationalism, through the chan-   celleries of Europe, the President of   the United States would meet with opposition. Up to the present M.   Clemenceau has been the only Euro- pean spokesman to voice Europe's dis- trust of this sovereign panacea for war. But this does not mean that France, any more, than America, is desirous of provoking further bloodshed. lt   means merely that France must insist upon security on land just as Britain will assuredly demand security on sea before either country will submit to   lay aside its defensive weapons. It must surely confuse those who &nbsp...

A BOOM TO GROWING GIELS [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919

A boon for growing girls.   Girls from their teens onwards are   very apt to become anaemic and     nervy. These conditions, if not pro- perly attended to, seriously affect- them in latter years. It is, therefore, essential that girls should have their blood kept rich and pure and their nervous systems well nourished. A reliable means to this end is provided in BEAN'S TONIC NERVE NUTS, which are aptly termed, "a boon to growing girls." Nerve Nuts are sold by all leading chemists and stores, price 8s. per box, containing 12 day supply, or six boxes for 17s, 8d.
