DOG DAYS AND NIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 September 1917

DOG DAYS AND NIGHTS. The late defeatod cnaldidate (Macal. ister) and T. Pitcher's dog day Iroubies may be regaided as just an economico question pure and simple, rather than the usual dlticult and general nuisan:e recognised by those that keep and have not to keep dogs in pack or otherwise. In England the law offec'itng doggy in pack., I fancy, if mny tieory so, res me, was referred to as so mrunlly hounds, ,oot dugs. It takes a lawyer to enligltlen a o sln matters of thas kind, and, of course, he Ihta to le paid every titte not sometimnes. T'th law is an ass, and very soon it may degenerate into a dog by wity of a chango.

PLAY THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 September 1917

PLAY THE GAME. How do Australilans "Play the Game"     By which the nations stand or fall ? What is their need of praise or blame In this, the testing time for all ? Do noble deeds their zeal inspire ? Or tales of wrong their wrath inflame ? Do they with loyal hearts desire In this their day to "Play the Game ?"   When foemen on their coasts would land, Or aliens their possessions claim, Are they prepared on every hand In self-defence to "Play the Game ?"   We Played the Game as Britons should On sea and shore, the men reply, Who to their guns so bravely stood At Cocos and Gallipoli. When in that April morning's light We stormed those cliffs so steep and high, We Played the Game, and fought a fight Of which the fame will never die. And on the battlefields in France We add fresh lustre to our fame, Our foes retreat, and our advance Show how the Anzacs "Play the Game." Yet some (don't call them men !) hang back Undrilled, unmarshalle...
