(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 July 1939

(To the Editor.) Sir,-As one of those "elements in the community" which heartily ap-' plauds the decision, of the Australian Councilof Trades Unions to resist the National Register Act, may I join issue with you on' your editorial of last week? Could I, without offence. Suggest that your declared, policy on this matter was not fully considered? You speak of the "bogey of con scription," ' and imply that the A.C.T.U. opposes the Act largely he cause it will entail compulsory ser. vice overseas. This is not correct. The A.C.T.U. opposes • the national register largely because it will cer tainly entail industrial conscription within Australia. This, is not to deny the council's hostility to military con. scription;. it simply recognises the National Register Act as something considerably 'worse. Mr Menzies and his henchmen have surely left no room for doubt on the matter, they having repeatedly declared that. in the next war every citizen must be pre :ared to take his or her place eith...

THE COMMONWEALTH BANK. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 July 1939

THE COMMONWEALTH BANK. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Those who wish to see the Commonwealth Bank flinctinninu for the benefit of Australia and its people should, wherever possible, 'have the following resolution adopted: "That this meeting of ........... held at ........ on ............ resolves that banking is a. fundalaen tal function of Government, and that private banks, by encouraging high rates of interest which transfer the accumulations of the many into the vockets of the few, are a menace to the well-being of the people.

NATIONAL REGISTER. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 July 1939

NATIONAL REGISTER. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I have had my attention drawn to a letter in your issle of June 23 supposedly addressed to myself, 'but which I would never have seen had it not been shown to me by a friend. The letter expressed surprise at the attitude being taken by the trade union movement toward the Menzies Government's compllsory registration and supply and development mea sures, and states that the fear of con scription is a bogey which should be buried and forgotten. Well, it appears that your paper has another think coming, for I can hardly conceive that it would still request unionists to look on conscription as a bogey after reading the amendments made in the 1903 Defence Act and the legal opinion received by the A.C.T.U. on the national register, the supply and development measures, and the amendment of the 1903 Defence Act (a copy of which is enclosed herein). You will find a further statement enclosed. This is taken from Federal Hansard, of May 22, 1939, and is ...

Sustenance Labor[?] Does Taxpayer Approve? [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 July 1939

Sustenance Labo oOo Does Taxpayer Approve? Do the taxpayers.who contribute millions to.- the unemploymsc fund approve of sustenance men ca rrying out public works?. Doea th ratepayer approve of municipal works, being achieved by the same means? The. answer is most decidedly NO TTnfortunately, the situation is a most difficult one. If a man does no work in return for sustenance he receives only 26/- per week to keep himself, wife and two children-as an example, whereas. if the municipality supplies work then he can earn..the magnifi cent sum of 38/- from the -State. We do not wish to misrepresent the case, and it is said that our article last week, Sweating Should End, did so. There is no need to pull the long bow in this matter; the truth is quite .ilicient to condemn the iniquitous system. By Act of Parliament the local ad ministration of sustenance is dele gated to the municipality. And in an endeavor to give the "susso" the higher rate, work, is provided by the council. The men w...
