S Stories of War EATING THE MACHINE GUN. "CHAMBER OF HORRORS." ARMISTICE OR SURRENDER? It is at Randwick Hospital. "Allow. me to introduce Private Donnelly, 1st Battalion, commonly known as 'Glutton' on account of hav ing tried to eat a machine-gun," says the man in pyjamas and overcoat. "Couldn't swallow it," laughs Pri .ate )Donnelly bringing his wheel chair to a standstill. You are a trifle bewildered, and want to know more. "Let's hear about it," you ask. "I'm afraid I've forgotten every thing since I had shell-shock," comes from the wheel-chair. "He's stringing you!" the other convalescent protests. "Go on, Don nelly; be a sport!" "Did you really suffer from shell shock?" demands the visitor. "Yes, from eating peanuts!" says the incorrigible one; but a few more protests set him on the narrow path way of truth, and you learn that .after four months on Gallipoli he got so, badly peppered by a machine-gun that his mates suspected him of hav ing tried to eat it. He was taken off to...

Gymnasium Girls and Private Enterprise—Council Rescinds Previous Resolution. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 March 1917
Gymnasium Girls and Private Enter prise-Council Rescinds Previous Resolution. Stating that he believed the council had acted rather hastily in banning the members of the girls' classes from the municipal gymnasium because they took part in a display at Bar rett's Cinema Theatre, Bridge-road, Cr. Morgan on Monday night moved that the motion be rescinded. Cr. Morgan added that he now thought the council had acted without fair con sideration of the facts. Prior to the council giving any-direction, they had promised to give the display, and thinking the council's instruction de barred them from appearing as the municipal class, they could yet appear as private individuals. He believed that view was the correct one, as the council at that time had no rules or regulations governing the gymnasium or its members when out of session. Cr. Webber said that an impression had gained ground that the girls had been barred because of their cos tumes. Nothing of the sort. The council had never said ...

CroSs-!ire . ~iscussionh from all arounil the table took place at the council .meeting on- Monday night, when Cr, Barcelo brought up his mo tion asking the council to disagree with a ruling. by the Mayor that he could prevent a councillor from speak ing on a subject before the chair. The Mayor refused to accept such a mo tion, holding that as far as he was aware there was nothing in the Local Government Act which gave a coun illor power to disagree with a May or's ruling. The Mayor is right-there is nothing in the Act. It is, however, provided that when the Act fails, re -ort should be made to Parliamentary usage, and in default of that, even further, to the practice of the House -f Commons. A pretty tangle! Cr. n-arcelo ouoted an opinion given by the solicitor to the Northcote Coun :1 on an almost similar disnute, hit the Mayor promptly knocked that ...

Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 March 1917
Ladies' Letter. There was a mannequin parade al; one of our softgoods establishments last week, and it was wonderful to see how, even in these times of stress, women do thoroughly enjoy seeing what is to be worn in the com ing autumn. After hearing all we do about the restraint women have put. upon themselves in the matter ol' clothes, I was truly surprised at the magnificence shown on these livingfl models. An evening dress tickled u; all immensely by its bizarre effect. It was composed of canary-colored silk made very full and short, the amusing feature being a huge scarl of black tulle twisted around the neck and brought half-way up the face. I asked the model if the tulle were. meant to be worn in that style all through the evening. She replied that it was unless one wanted to eat a chocolate, for which purpose ii, could be gently dropped and then re placed. Of course, it was meant to give a coy look, but was truly ab. surd. Black and white check coats and skirts were shown in g...
TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 March 1917
TUFTS OF TURF, Beating The Books; One joker tried an old systeim. At the just-concluded autumn meet Sing. SHe was missing at the settling on the morning after the day before. In his case the default was £1600. He is said to have been a ticket-scalper Sbefore fluttering into the race-game. Now he has scalped the books in a manner that will take many a long train-ride to wipe out The wonder is that-such reputedly shrewd men as bookmakers are sup posed to be ever lay themselves open to be exploited in such a manner. Some explanation is found in the fact that competition to-day is terribly keen. But is it not nearer the truth that the greed of gold is hot inside all of us-or nearly all of us-and the bookie is on such a good wicket gener ally that he can afford to take risks that a tradesman would never dream of. It's a great game that would stand it. But, as written here aforetime, it is not as good as it used to be, and in all quarters there is grumbling. Re sults have been notably bad...
"Quirks" KNIGHTS-ERRANT OF TO-DAY. EPISODES OF THE WAR. THE REPORT—AND DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 March 1917
"Quirks" KNIGHTS-ERRANT OF TO-DAY. EPISODES OF THE WAR. THE REPORT-AND DEATH. Flying is a more than happy blend of science and good sportsmanship (writes an air pilot in the "Ex press"). It is a profession-more, a calling with an irresistible heart-ap peal to every healthy-minded young Briton. Therein is a quaint blending of danger and adventure, a strain of caution with a superlative dash of daring. It serves to strengthen the character and develop the mind. It has given to the prosaic world a new and lovable type of man-the knight-errant of the twentieth cen tury "sans peur, sans reproche," who laughs at death and mockingly passes danger, as an old acquaintance, and creeps across the broad face of the heavens, day by day, night by night, in constant conflict with the vampire spirit of the air. At the seaplane station at X-- A- , an experi enced and capable pilot was out test ing a new machine. The time ar rived for his return. Half-an-hour w-ent by, an hour, two hours! Then the al...
