WESTRALIA'S PRIDE HUMBLED BY FEDERAL SHEARS PUBLIC SERVANTS LOSE FIVE PER CENT. ALLOWANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 21 May 1921

WEITRALIA'S PRIDE BUMBLED BY FEDERAL SHEARS PUBLIC SERVANTS LOSE FIVE PER CENT. ALLOWANCE. 'M':-t-Westralia always used, in the good old days, to pride herself on being the good wages State — the leader of the Commonwealth in La bour affairs. But a great change has come. Her 'Labour' politicians have followed Htighes into the camp of Boodle, aaid the rank ana file, many of them, have followed these decoy ducks into bondage. In the name of 'Loyalty' the peo ole of the West have strangled the Labour movement. Now they are reaping the reward. Hitherto, Federal servants in WA enjoyed a special allowance of 5 per cent, on their salaries — a recognition of the high-wage ideal of W.A- Lab our. But that ideal has gone. W.A. is the 'loyal State.' It has sacrificed its Labour ideal to its self-styled 'loyalty.' Meanwhile, Boodle laughs, and th» decoy ducks laugh loader stilL They snow their contempt for this 'loyaly' by robbing their own servants of the meagre 5 per cent recognition of Westra...

h SENSITIVE SOU ? v ? 'B': The tram was crowded; wo men were standing all around him, but apparently he was asleep, wear ied after his long labours in some Government office, perhaps. His head was bent, his eyes closed; he did not see the angry glances thrown at him by seat-lusful females. Suddenly there was a hoarse, cry near the door, 'All tickets, please.' The inspector passed slowly down the serried car, nearer and nearer to the sleeping figure. - ' 'Tickets, please.' The man did not answer — he seemed to be sound asleep. 'Here, where's your tic ket?' Still no answer. 'Wake up. wake up! Where's your ticket?' Slowly the man opened his eyes and fumbled for his season. 'Hurry up! What's the matter with you? Got sleeping sickness or 'yer still teething?' the inspectoij waxed in dignant. 'Here you are, inspector, said the man, showing his ticket; 'so sorry I didn't see you before. But I have to keep my eyes closed. I can't bear TO SEE THE LADIES STANDING!'

There's nothing so depress ing as the tail lights of a train you've just missed! Mr. Traffic Manager Lord, do you realise that your service has failed completely to rise to the sublime heights of apperception demanded' by the football season? 'Football's a big thing this year It's going to be a bigger thing. Yet between 1 and 2 p.m. on Saturdays, just when the football tide turns Fremantleward, vyou schedule but two trains — 1.15 and 1.35 p.m. Is this reasonable? Of course, after a couple of Satur days, on which would-be passengers have suffered abominable inconven ience, you will surely awaken. Another question, do your gate keepers fib to belated travellers by instructions, or just through sheer cussedness or indifference? Th...

2min. Observations (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 21 May 1921

2«il. MSOVfifMS (Continued). I am a very poor excuse ror a statis tician ,or figure-maker, but after esti mating the number or Smin. 5sec. trot ters that had stepped in Smin., I con cluded to see the 2 mm. 5 sec. pacers had deported themselves. They number 328, and since only thirteen of them have joined the min. list, 4.27 per cent, have qualified. From this it may be seen that there is no marked difference in the ability of pacers who have registered in Smin. 5sec. to train on and go in Smin. . While they are over three times a? numerous as the 2min. Ssec. trotters approximately the same per cent, have graduated into the 2min. class. This strikes me as very odd, indeed, and unless I had looked it up I would have thought that the figures would greatly favour the pacers in respect to the percentage of 2mln. ssec. performers that subse quently achieved premier honours. But doesn't it stagger you when you learn that there are 338 pacers in the 2min. Osec. list? I confess that it did m...
