WHAT NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

WHAT NEXT? ? ? I In the Legislative Assembly last week Mr. Pollock gave notice of his intention to ask leave to move jiiat a sum of £1000 be voted to members of the Legislative Assembly to pay thejr travelling expenses by steamer or coach. This is evidently by way of a s3t-off to the cool thousand drawn for expenses by the State Judges. Seems as though Mr. Pollock is not satis fied with the £300 per annum paid mem bers of the legislature for slanging each other day in and day out. Nor does he take into consideration the fact that he and his political confreres are provided with a gold railway pass entitling them to ride- free of charge on all lines. This paper would like to suggest — (1) That all members of Parliament as at present con stituted be abolished; (2) that their jobs be given to returned soldiers (who could not make a worse hash than the crew now working the shin), salary to be fixed by the community, not by members, them selves; (3) that every returned soldier be awarded...

From Near and Far [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

# From Near and Far $ | Go where one* may throughout the country, one finds mothers and sisters and daughters of the nation giving every spare moment to the noble work of the Red Cross. From far-back humpies, miles and miles beyond the centres of civilisation, come regular parcels of socks or shirts or useful nick-nacks, made by brave pioneering women who take ?their daily share of toil alongside the men of the bush. $ £ 3J: He The war workers in Sydney have formed a rest or social club in Georgo street, which is a rendezvous where they meet other workers and discuss ways and means and exchange ideas. Country and suburban helpers, when in the city, find this a most convenient centre where they may bring their friends to morning or afternoon tea, write letters, or rest. The expense is guaranteed by the mem bers, and the furnishings are the gifts of private individuals. The membership fee is small (only 2s 6d), whilst all nurses returned from active service are made honorary members. ...

The Need for National Economy. INDIVIDUAL WASTE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

The Need for National Economy. INDIVIDUAL WASTE. / Everyone except the party politicians realises the need for national economy in Australia, not only in the Government departments of both State and Common wealth, but among the people as indivi duals. Public opinion has been behind all those newspapers which have clamored for the, drastic use of the prun ing knife in all Government expenditure. It is indeed high time that the knife was applied in every public institution of the nation, but that it is being applied' this a paper fails to see. In Queensland, for instance, the State Government, being of a socialistic turn of mind, and anxious to cheapen commodities to allow its sup porters to have more cash to fling about, has established several State enterprises to keep the Railway Department com pany. That they are following in the footsteps of the Railway Department is not surprising. Where is the cash going to? Queensland has gone through twelve millions of pounds during the past ...

What is Loyalty? (To the Editor of the "National Leader.") [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

What is Loyalty? (To the Editor of the 'National Leader.') Dear Sir, — The leading article of a daily contemporary asks the very vital as also the far-reaching question; What is loyalty? It must be quite clear to all broad-minded thinkers that loyalty is only a high and noble attribute when the object of such loyalty is correspondingly the embodyment of all that is highest and best for humanity. Therefore loyalty is only to be applauded when it manifests itself in fidelity to truth and righteous ness. ? Moreover, loyalty is, beyond dis- ' pute, the basic and most vital principle which operates in all human institutions. v It is at once the life and substance of modern democracies; without it such form of. government would be absolutely impossible. It is unnecessary . for any explanation of what would happen if loyalty were to become absorbed in national selfishness and greed. I am sure it is quite obvious in itself. ' Following the line of construction of the writer of the article b...

OF YOUR CHARITY GIVE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

OF YOUR CHARITY GIVE. Out of the depth of a broken heart a cry to Australian women came From Belgians driven from loved ones and home With babe in arms and babe unborn, And they did not appeal in vain. There are many little children crying for bread to-day Whose daddy stepped out nobly to the call Of the poor heart-broken mothers in Belgium as they cried: 'Will you help us, Mother England, lest we fall?' Great Britain, with her loyal sons anrl Anzacs o'er the sea, ' t ' ' Fought as Britons never, never fought before. Many of these brave, men fell whilst 'fight ing in the fray, Leaving many homeless orphans at our door. Work was started at once to provide kits to clothe these lambs and keep them warm; But money is needed badly, and if it be freely given, The Shepherd will watch over your little lambs, 'For of such is the kingdom of Heaven.' Mr. F. HILL. Late of Wynnum South. Of how much money is needed, or how many sacrifices must be made, before the wants of the little ones are full...

Educate Disabled Soldiers. GOVERNMENT SHOULD WAKE UP. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

Educate Disabled Soldiers. GOVERNMENT SHOULD WAKE UP. Canada is preparing plans for voca tional, industrial, and agricultural train ing of soldiers incapacitated by wounds or illness, and tlie British War Office has established a number of so-called Com mand Depots for the re-education of dis abled men who may be fitted again for soldiering. ? The system was introduced by Major R. Tait Mackenzie, a Canadian by birth, but professor of physical training at the University of Pennsylvania, who is now in the Royal Army Medical Corps. It is now being urged upon the British ? Army Council that somewhat similar training centres should forthwith be es tablished for men incapable of further soldiering, and discharged, owing to the doss of limbs or sight, or otherwise. The London 'Times' strongly urges that far more extensive use be made of the period of convalescence to teach dis abled soldiers useful civil employment, saying military discipline should be main tained until educational treatme...

Men's Auxiliary. A LABOR OF LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 December 1916

Men's Auxiliary. A LABOR OF LOVE. To the men who were precluded by age or physical incapacity from joining ' the forces there is no more practical way of proving their, patriotism than by join ing the Men's Auxiliary. This is a .body of volunteer war workers operating in conjunction with the Queensland. Red Cross Society. It has branches all over the State, and has, since its inception in 1915, created a field of endeavor which has materially benefited and assisted the work of the benificent Red Cross. The Central Men's Auxiliarv branch of the Red Cross movement of Queens land dates its origin as far back as November 9, 1915, when a provisional committee held its first meeting at the Society's store, Queen-street, when cer tain gentlemen offered their services,. A sum of £100 was placed at their disposal by the Red Cross Society, and the pre mises kindly given by Mr. L'Estrange were divided between the men's branch and the ladies who proposed to start a Red Cross kitchen.

Use the Hans. CLEARING THE PEAR. (To the Editor of the "National Leader.") [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 December 1916

Use the Hans. CLEARING THE PEAR. (To the Editor of the 'National Leader.') Sir, — Don't you think that it is time Australia started to intern all aliens? There are millions of acres of prickly pear infested country in Queensland, in creasing at the rate of an acre a minute, waiting to be cleared. There are hun dreds of aliens at large in Queensland, living as if they were in their own coun try, and insulting the British in many rtnriAo ittIi rk n/Mil d Kft nlnnnirnr f ?? 1 rt laOCO, YY11U V/UU1U UG UiiXO HXUU, and should be doing it. Why not? It will cost the Government in the future millions of pounds to clear this land, and when we have an opportunity like the present of making our .enemies do the thing for us we should grasp it; not that there is any chance of them clearing the bally lot, but they would make some impression — perhaps clear up the West wood or Mungallala patches. We need not drag them from their wives and children and pack them into cattle trucks like they are doi...

1917. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 December 1916

1917. . ? In a few days the old year, 1916f will be passed, and the new year will have | 'been ushered in. Not to the pealing of joy bells, heralding the coming of a brighter day, as we so fondly imagined, ?but to the insistent and sinister roll of the war-drum, growing ever louder and j louder. The year 1916 is a period re markable for three phases of the greatest conflict man ever waged against man. ' ?First, the tremendous offensive by the German hosts against Verdun — a strategi cal blunder — and the wonderful stand of General Nivelle's men against what was up to that time the most intense artillery bombardment ever inflicted upon unhappy soldiery. The defeat of the Huns in that -six months' battle will1 live as long as the French nation. The second phase of the war dn the year under review was the Somme offensive, when, like a river in spate, the British flooded the German trenches and fortifications with wave upon wave of khaki-clad infantry, the finest the world has ever know...

The Invincible Navy. A TRIBUTE (?) FROM Mr. RYAN. In the .special Trafalgar Day number of 'The Navy,' the organ of the Navy League, London, the Queensland Premier (Mr. T; J,. Ryan) says: 'Throughout the present war the invincible British Navy, with the true Nelson spirit animating officers and men, has been the vigilant guardian of civilisation, and to its pro tection Australia owes her immunity from the horrors and miseries of invasion, her froodnm +n r»nnr1.nr-t iTievr *nffni.r« in Tipt own way as in time of peace, and her opportunity of sending her sons by tens of thousands to fight beside their kindred of the motherland to preserve from de struction, by the most unprincipled enemy of human rights whom the world has known, everything that ages of striv ing and suffering and sacrifice have done for the betterment of mankind.' What unparalleled hypocrisy! .Mr. Ryan has in his Cabinet men who are, if their utterances are to be taken as voic ing their real opinions, out and out advo ...
