AIR RAID PRECAUTIONS. (To the Editor.) Sir,--Air raid precautions! To those who want to get this thing right.. Those whb don't want war, but know a war might come. Those, like my self, who don't, mind doing their bit. but in doing so don't want, to aid the armament.racket on the one hand, or somebodv's social-climbing on the other, or perhaps both. To' those of us, the 'average people, who are. not apathetic,, but Whose minds are so filled with suspicion because of all the anomalies we see around us .(you mention some of them in your Can You Tell,Us.-.7/7/39).

AIR RAID MEETINGS. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 14 July 1939
AIR RAID MEETINGS. (To the Editor.) "Sir,-What is behind- these scare meetings about air raids? I think they must be for the Purpose of occu pDying the minds of the people While they are robbed in some other direc tion. Having been bombed many times in camp at Chateau Belge every night before the Polygon Wood stunt, in troop trains at St. Pol, and also on the march-I maintain there is little danger unless they lilt direct. Sir Henry Page Croft in a letter to the Times said: "There is a wholly ex aggerated fear of mass casualties to "ivilians from air attack. The total civilian deaths on both sides, after nearly three years of war in Spain, do not equal our total deaths from niotor -cars on British roads in the same period." The Leader of 1st inst says: 'The British Government has decided that the provision of heavily protected shelters against air attack for large numbers of the population is impossible as well as undesirable. In Barcelona only about 30,000 per sons out of a total o...

ECONOMIC QUESTION (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 14 July 1939
ECONOMIC QUE.STION (T(o the Editor) Sir,-The river of Hogwash seems to have overflowed its banks, and a. fair trickle is flowing through the columns of your valuable paper.:. -A letter written in your paper" over the signature of. Mr L. Louther, w?5s very ably done; and I saw no mis statements, and in my opinion was all commonsense. .I notice a letter written over the nom de plume of Modern Economist, hereafter abbreviated to M.E. He seems quite worried about the ris ing generation being misled by above suggested misstatements. M.E. says that there would be no overproduc tion if the would-be purchasers were provided with enough money to buy the goods produced. I would like to know from what source is the money to come. I hope I am on this wicked earth. when we will have all the money we want to spend on anything we fancied. This will then be some country. If this funny, dream were to materialise, could we 7,000,000 peo ple absorb a few of the primary pro ducts we now-sell in the wor...
Money! Money! Money! [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 14 July 1939
Money! Money! Money! This is the cause of all our woes-national troubles, State troubles, business troubles, and private troubles. There is not enough in circula tion to cope with national and industrial advancement. Machines are being invented weekly to cut down labor costs ,to cheapen production, and to afford better service to the community?-well, when we say the community, we really mean a few in the community. The result is an over production, and an under consumption, because hundreds who would be potential buyers of these machine-produced goods are thrown out of work by their introduction, and the machines defeat themselves. From a national aspect there is no greater example in the world than our own fair country, Australia. Dozens of jobs on a gigantic scale are awaiting the hand of labor, but the want of money prevents a start being made. The sane thinking person naturally asks himself is this necessary. Here we have a land which must be the envy of certain foreign nations,...

Let's Write a Letter TO THE WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 14 July 1939
Let's Write a Letter oOo TO THE WORKERS. Fellow People,-In addressing this epistle to the workers we are addressing everyone. We are- all workers, every one of us, Whether we come home to our wives with clean or dirty hands. We. are all laborers, laboring for ours daily bread.. As you are aware, the National Insurance Act of 1938 is dead, and it will never arise from the grave to 'which it. soon will .be consigned. Funeral chants have not been sung over its bones. It will be buried w'ithout pomp or ceremony in the stillness of the. night, and it only deserves such a burial. National insurance of an approved type must come to Australia eventually, but in the meantime, what? Many of you people have thought more about medical benefits, etc.," in the past two years than ever before. You probably have realised that you should have made some provision for doctor and medicine, sick pay, hospital benefits, funeral benefits, and so on, without waiting for Casey's Calamity. But you did not, a...

CORRESPONDENCE ECONOMIC FUTILITY. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 14 July 1939
CORRESPONDENCE --o ECONOMIC FUTILITY. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Had A Modern Economist carefully read my letter of June 23 it would have saved him the discourtesy of such comments as "mis-statements" and "swallowing any more false doc trine," etc. In the latter half of. my letter I dealt concisely with the very "economics" which your correspond ent imagines I overlooked, and sug gested means for their alleviation and possible removal. The immediate problem for solution is the rigjht of employment at remunerative rates for all people, and the ways and means whereby we may arrive at such a solution. The matter is not one of economic statistics broadcasted from a ,professional easy chair, as to what might have been, or what may be, but the actual present basic fact of the social and economic' status of the workers. The hideous reality of industrialists not having the means to purchase sufficient 'commodities establishes the Irrefutable fact that primary produc tion, however bounteous, is o...
