"Smash the Machine!" [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

' Smash the Machine!' Away with the party political machine ! The cry is spreading wider arid ever wider. Itjs / the cry of a nation, whose will is being , strangled by an obsolete electoral system, a nation denied the right of self-expression. Under the existing- electoral, or the. two party system there is no room for anybody but; the extremist; The man who stands as a par ' ! liameritary candidate must receive the official ' endorsement of one or the. other of the exist ing political parties or else, stand down. In order to become the endorsed candidate of a - party he must sink His individuality ' and be- ; come part and parcel of the machine. Once ? in Parliament he comes within the jurisdiction of his leader and is expected to vote accord ing to the dictates of his party. In politics to day the conscience of the individual has no part in . the scheme of things of Party Political Machine. The welfare :of the community, as '' understood by the' electors, or- even' the elec tors'...

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

SAVED. Little Harold, having climbed to the pinnacle . ^ i of the roof of a very steep shed, lost his foot- - ing and began to slide with terrifying swiftness toward that point where the roof swept grace-' fully off into space. 'O Lord, save me!' he prayed. 'O Lord, save me! O Lord! .... Never mind. I've caught on a nail.' 'My marriage,' said the tired4ooking man, 'was one of necessity, I was lonely, and mar ried for sympathy.' ' ? His friend looked him over. 'Well, you have mine, old chap,'* said he. 1 Wilson will liave to look out or Lloyd George will be the world's most democratic statesman. Some of the Allies fare thirsting for. the hu miliation of Germany, and what is more they have good cause for it. But will that attitude help to keep the peace of the world? If the camouflage was rubbed off Japanese doings, Mars might get another look in before he died. There is an organisation in New South Wales calling itself the Social Democratic League. It boasts that its object is Bolshe...

Shell-Shock Cured by Suggestion. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

'Shell-Shock CMJy Suggestion. The power of suggestion is being found to act with magical effect in the treatment of shell-shock cases in special military hospitals of Great Britain. Experience has shown that ..the1 condition of most nerve-shattered soldiers has not, strictly speaking, been caused , by the I ; £hock sustained from the bursting of any par , particular high explosive shell. Rather it has been found to be due to a gradual breaking . down of the nervous system under the strain of, active service. True cases of shell-shock concussion caused by the bursting of high ex plosives rarely survive, usually being killed outright. ; By' adapting a system of intensive moral | - r treatment it has been found that 90 per cent. of the cases of so-called shell-shock are quick j ly curable. 'The patients are not required to ) undergo any special course of1 massage. They i| are taken into an atmosphere of hope and op : j: . ' . timism, are gradually impressed with the fact || , that thei...

Soldiers in Politics [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

Soldiers in Politics ' Many and varied were the attempts made by some of our political 'professionals' to gain profit out of the present efforts of the' return - ed soldiers to put their house in order. The gag is not a' new one. While the Diggers were ' 'over there' fighting .and undergoing untold hardships and privations we had the : slacker : ' arid the profiteer deriving fat incomes out of. tlie conditions created by the catachysm we ' called the Great War. ' To-day when the re turned soldier fights for his and his country's rights back in Australia, another kind of 'pro- fiteer' fishes in the troubled waters, this time ' for votes and political capital. It has. been freely asserted that the Diggers are' being used by one party or another; irre sponsible utterances were bo'omed sky-high, with ^glaring .scare-lines, calculated to depict the' returned soldier as a cat's paw -of the ' ? bloted capitalist and so on and so forth. We allude to the action of - the , Brisbane daily know...

THEY LEFT HER. Miss Etta came over with her holiday or der: 'I'm after some more of your fine chick ens, Aunt Lucy.' , But the old lady emerged from the cabin and hung over the .fence. 'Why, law, Miss Etta! Didn't yo' know dere was a preachers' conference down dis way? I ain't got one chicken left. Dey's all done entered de minis try.' ' Democracy has just escaped . from being crushed by the autocracy of militarism. Now it is threatened by the autocracy of the prole tariat.

'Whatto, Bill! I thought you had gone | West!' ; .''West Blighty!' grinned Bill. | 'What boat did you get back on?'
