WHYS? AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 May 1919

WHYS? AND OTHERWISE, Why do you talk so much, talkative man? Perched on . a can, what is your plan , In ranting so- foolishly, talkative man? To make men discontented, Sir, he said, The job is made; and I am paid By the poor fools themselves, Sir, he said. But what if blood flows because you've lied, Men have died and countries sighed, When sense and forbearance are set aside. My voice is my living, he shrugged with a wirik, Let's have a drink! Don't you think It's a damn soft job? he grinned with a wink. — Rose Cowen.

"LEST WE FORGET." [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 May 1919

'LEST WE FORGET.' - „ (By W. O'B.). The war is over, the parade has. been dis missed and the odd feel of civvies has worn off. - Men who one time, tense and serious knew the swish, swish of flying lead and the barking roar of shrapnel are now drifting back into the grooves of domestic life. The old order changes and they have played their parts. The old thread of life is being taken up but the taking up is hard. After years of campaigning the Digger has learned to take a larger view of his surround ings and the petty trivialities are of no conse quence. But back in civil life he - finds himself . encompassed by the pettiness of . things. He finds no interest in the absprbing topic of Jirii Brown's broken leg or the teething of Mrs. White's new haby. ' And his friends to whom he has returned, are vaguely disappointed because they., do not understand the soul searing of his experience. They have read of the war, but cannot pic ture its horrors. They cannot imagine stiff blanketed form...

The Problem of the Partially Disabled Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 May 1919

The Problem of the Partially Disabled Man. ? From South Africa reaches v.s a strong plea for the disabled man. Writing in the 'Com- rades,' our South African contemporary, . Capt. J. Danny, ^ puts a sound argument before us. (In our opinion Gapt. Danny's proposals deserve earnest 'Consideration./ .This is what he says:— 'Let us get rid of all sentimental -bosh and face the fact* squarely. If tan employer should want a cer.tain ; number , of employees after the . war, he will take those who are strong arid healthy and not those who are suffering from some disability. When,; demobilisation will release thousands of men capable and qualified ' . to do the work that will be on offer, the partly disabled men will suffer unless something is done to assure them of employment of some sort. That oan ^nly be done by legislation. Voluntary efforts will not do. They , will fail, as they have failed in recruiting and food pro . blems. ' The very foundation of Reconstruction must be based on the ...

THE SUN-RAYSED INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 May 1919

THE SUN-RAYSED INDUSTRY. Around Mildura, in Victoria, a new and im portant Australian industry is being brought into our national life. We regret that space does not permit us to sufficiently enlarge upon this welcome addition to our Common Wealth, but feel certain that the following letter from the Mildura Sub-Branch of the R.S.S.I.L.A. will be sufficient to enlist the public sympathy in support of the new industry: — THE RETURNED SAILORS AND SOLDIERS' IMPERIAL LEAGUE OF AUSTRALIA. Mildura Sub-Branch. (To the Editor.*) Dear Sir,— I am instructed by my committee ; to write you telling you that the Publicity Campaign of the A.D.F.A., which is extensively advertised in your columns, has the unanimous approval of the members of this sub-branch. The 'Sun-Raysed' Fruit Industry vitally af fects the returned soldier, as in addition to hundreds of soldier growers, the industry em ploys thousands of other soldiers and gives them absolute preference and a fair deal.

More Repatriation. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 May 1919

More Repatriation. A few days ago a peculiar statement ap peared in the Press and we were approached by three returned soldiers directly interested in the case, who requested us to help them by putting the correct facts before the public. We now do so with pleasure, and it is our inten tion to lay the case before the Minister of Re patriation direct. In the meantime we deem it our duty to acquaint the public with the case and do so by publishing the following state ment made by the three interested returned soldiers without any further comments or al terations: — Sir, — We, the undersigned, on March 21st last, placed an application with the Repatria tion Department, for a loan of £150 each, mak: ingra total of £450, to enable us to start in , business as ,a Concrete Construction Patent Partition and Patent Flooring Company.

REPATRIATED. [Copyright.] [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 May 1919

REPATRIATED. By ALFRED J. LEX. ' ' [Copyright.] I am afraid you may not like my story, £To body likes stories unless they have a nice end ing. And this is not a 'nice' story. You see it happens to be real. His name does not come into my narrative. It may have been Tom or Bill or Joe. I do not know. Nobody ever called liim anything but 'Blue.' It may be because he was not a com municative sort of a fellow, or perhaps because his hair was scraggy and of a nondescript colour of faded hemp. He was not clever and you could not exactly have called him hand some. Nobody ever taught him a trade and his education consisted of just a bare know ledge of reading and writing. So he followed various -occupations, roaming the country, now droving, now cane cutting, now shearing or timber-getting. For thirty odd years he lived the life of a nomad, accumulating hard knocks and hard habits, a store of 'blue' language and a few pounds in his scanty savings bank account. Then came the war. 'Blue' came ...

Production and Distribution. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 May 1919

Production and Distribution. By J. OGDEN ARMOUR. It is necessary that we bring order out of ' 'ie chaos which now rules the business of grow \g and distributing perishable food. This o'aaos is chiefly apparent in the lack of know litlge accompanying the planting and the dis tributing of crops. : There is need that the farmers of the nation 'have at their disposal full and complete infor mation ias to what crops are being grown and Vvlien the harvest will be on. There is need i ' .at they be kept fully informed as to the loca tion of food stocks and the direction in which they are moving, and that there be easily ac f ~ssible channels of news which will prevent i e sending of more food or live stock to a r ' lgle market than it has need for, while some c .her market is in want. Likewise the far i.-.jrs should have advices at hand that will en ?: ..able them to regulate their shipments so that ^?supplies will not reach market at the same ^ vie, : thereby forcing prices beloV their tru...

THE TRUE MOUNTAIN SPIRIT. Nowhere does, patriotism fLame higher than: in the southern mountains.

PENSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 May 1919

PENSIONS. Pensioners will take the . most ♦exception to the statement that 'the pension is awarded to a soldier or a sailor so that he can live in de cent comfort despite his handicap.' Undoubt edly that expresses the wish -of the people of Canada, but in the first place the scale of pen sions is too low to make it possible for a man dependent on any degree of pension to live in 'decent comfort' as we understand the phrase in Canada. —'The B.C. Veterans' Weekly.' There is a Needle-and-Thread Tree in - Mexico. It is the maguey tree, which furnishes a needle and thread all ready, for use. At the tip of each -dark green leaf is a slender thorn needle that is carefully drawn from its sheath. . At the same time it slowly unwinds the thread, a strong, smooth fiber attached tq the needle and capable of being drawn out to a great length. : A 'special' hardship' clause has been added to the pension regulations. No general rule has been laid down regarding cases which will v ; come -within th...
