A Minister Blundered [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 24 January 1941
? A Minister Blundered |T would appear that the Mini ster for the Army (Mr. Spender) allowed his enthus iasm to run away With itself over the Tobruk incident, by prematurely announcing the fall of the Italian stronghold. Mr. Spender's announcement was not from official quarters, it was learned when confirma tion of the victory was not forthcoming, but it was 'only from a reliable source.' The Government is continu ally emphasising to the general public not to pay any heed to unconfirmed reports of military operations, yet we find the Army Minister himself condon ing such an offence — and it is an offence to cprcuUiic state ments which are Hot true. If a high minister of the Govern ment does not set the example, what can be expected from the public ? Mr. Spender has blundered, and his action has caused much confusion. Cabinet should in sist that in future no announce ment of troop operations should be made public until authentic confirmation is received.
BOOKING OFFICE IN THE TOWN [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 24 January 1941
BOOKING OFFICE IN THE TOWN Suggestion By Aid. Robertson In order to overcome the conges tion -which was continuing to occur at tlie booking offices at Albury rail way station, Aid. R. A. Robertson, at Albury Council meeting on Wed nesday night, suggested that a boofc injg office might be established in the town which would greatly assist to overcome this difficulty. With troop movements and other increased passenger traffic, it 'was _ often almost impossible to securi a ticket at the station, under existing, conditions,- 15 or 20 minutes before the leaving of a train, said' Aid. Robertson. .-??? Ho added that he did not ^think that this was duo- in 'any way to' ineffici ency of the staff, but to the inadequate and antiquated booking facilities. ? It was decided to write to the ?De- partment, pointing out tho inadequacy of existing facilities, and suggesting ? the establishment of a booking office ' in the town. ?
Fusion Of the Empire And America [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 24 January 1941
Fusion Of the Empire And America' J^OES the present trend of world events foreshadow a ' union of the British Empire and the United States of America — two of the greatest democratic institutions in . . the world ? In the past few weeks indications have been given that such a move is not beyond the realms of possi- :? bility, for the President of the United States, speaking with the authority of the great majority of his people, has clearly indicated where the sympathies of American lay. . From the outbreak of the war, it was evident that America was prepared to back England in her struggle, but the American Presidential election overshadowed the Euro pean war. With the elections over American people are now taking a deep interest in the conflict. Mr. Roosevelt has pledged all possible aid to Britain, short of a declaration of war on the Axis Powers, but some observers are of the opinion that the time is not far off when the United States herself will be fighting on the side of the ...
Decentralisation Must Be Encouraged [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 24 January 1941
Decentralisation Must Be Encouraged ' *.????? JN the early days of Australia, settlement of the various colonies was confined 4 to the , seaboard. Expansion inland did not begin until our adventurous explorers penetrated the hitherto unknown regions. When the trail had been blazed vast fertile territories were opened up, and people flocked in their thousands to open up these new areas. ? ' Nowadays, however, we find that the reverse is the position; people are leaving the country and flocking to the cities. Many who have left the land because they have been unable to make ends meet as primary producers. They have not been able to obtain a payable price for their produce, as our Governments have adopted a short-sighted policy in not seeking new markets for that produce. Others have departed for the metropolis because they have not been able to find employment in their home towns. Thus the greater propor tion of Australia's population is again being concentrated on the seaboard. - Thi...
