RE-ENLISTED RETURNED MEN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

RE-ENLISTED RETURNED MEN. The Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League has been in communication With the authorities re garding the question of re-enlisted re turned soldiers. It was stated to the general secretary recently by two re turned men that when they returned to camp they had to gQ through the elemen tary stages of squad drill similar to that carried out by raw recruits. The League is in receipt of information that this is not now the practice, and that returned men will be drafted into and sent away with reinforcements as trained men. The 'Leader' thinks it would be a good idea to form batches of returned soldiers, as reinforcements are so urgently needed. Much as we dislike to see returned men going back and leaving behind men who should be in khaki, it is obvious that those returned men who cannot secure employment would rather re-enlist than / walk the streets. Under the new recruit ing scheme it is open to men to join in batches of 150 and be sent awa...

WOMEN AND RECRUITING. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

WOMEN AND RECRUITING. The meeting of women convened by Mrs. T. J. Ryan and Mrs. Anderson, and held at the Town Hall on Wednesday - .morning, was fairly well attended, and ;if! thfc numbers might have been greater, ? , , ; the zest with which the great subject of recruiting was discussed by those present augurs well for the success of the. women's* .part in the forthcoming cam paign. Mrs. T. J. Ryan was voted to the chair, and also present were the mayoress (Mrs. Hetherington), Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. Moore (organiser Recruiting Committee), Mrs. Mutch, Col. Thynne, and Capt. Dash. On the motion of the president, Colonel Thynne addressed the meeting, dwelling in forceful terms on the great need for recruits, and emphasising the necessity of putting on one side all questions of sectarian, political, and other feelings, and wording only with one object in view — that of obtaining, by every means in our .power, reinforcements for our men at the front, who so sorely need them. Captain Dash al...

From Near and Far [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

From Near and Far 4*4»Aaaa...... ? There is a charming toucli of sentiment in the idea which originated in England of giving little parties in honor of the birthdays of the boys who are absent on active service. It is also becoming a custom here in Australia, and the bright little supper party given by Mr. and' Mrs. J. O'Neil Brenan at the Quaker Tea House, Sandgate, last week' was in honor of the 'birthday of their son, Lieut. Ralph Brenan, who was in. the 'landing at Gallipoli with the famous 9th, and is now 'somewhere in France.' The table was decorated with the battalion colors — a panel of blue and black silk, on which was set a copper bowl of golden and crim son sunflowers and c correopsis.. Miss Molly Brenan and Mr. Hope Brenan wer a also present, and the guests were Dr. and Mrs. Davidson, Mr. Pimm, Mr. and Miss Pickering, Miss Hely, and Mr. Jeays, who was also in the 9th with Lieut. Brenan. The health of the gallant young Anzac was toasted with musical honors. N* * ♦ # ? i M...

Where Socialism Failed. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

Where Socialism Failed. (By STEWART GRAHAME.) [The 'National Leader' will publish, from week to week, chapters from . Stewart Graham e's book, 'Where Social ism Failed.' Readers of the paper should not miss this vivid account of a terrible socialistic experiment.] In spite of its many advantages, Lane's three prospectors did not immediately visit Paraguay, since the Argentine Go vernment was equally anxious to secure good immigrants, and offered large tracts of land on tempting settlement condi tions. But the Australians had orders not to Conclude a bargain until they were fully satisfied as to (1) climate, (2) soil, (3) water, (4) timber, and (5) ease of 1 access, together with the' friendly disposi tion of the Government and the security of life and property; and so were not v - easy to please. For many months they scoured the country, and admitted that much of it was admirable for sheep rais - ? ing, but the more accessible parts of the Argentine were long since taken up, and had...

We should like to know : Why was Pte. G. J. Connors, 8/26th Battalion, who returned last week, debited with £1 6s 3d for a tunic and hat issued to him on his return to London from the front? Why the men who returned last week had Is per man stopped from their pay to make up , for breakages caused by a . storm? . Why men on crutches were riot sup plied with orderlies on a hospital trans port? Why the 'game' fourteen-stone con stable who offered to fight the eight-stone disabled returned soldier at the railway station the night the men returned is not: at the front, where ihe will meet many able-bodied opponents? Whether Mr. Charlie Bo wly, secretary to the Queensland Patriotic Fund, who is receiving £7 per week from the public of 'Queensland, has ever endeavored to en list? He is an eligible, and a single man. Will 'he explain his position ?

A Returned Soldier Candidate. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

A Returned Soldier Can didate. The speech delivered by Mr. \ Cook in j Sydney on Monday night last 'points to one conclusion at least, and that is that the Federal Liberal party will be dis inclined to tolerate any attempt by Mr. Hughes to form a third, party. Mr.; Cook is reported to have said; amongst other things : 'But if the matter of the war is all that concerns these people-^-and it is only the war which should concern us just now — then I say openly and unchal ?lengably that the party to which I belong ' ihas turned itself into a 'Win the war' party ever since the war began.' Mr. Cook must realise, as well as Mr. Hughes realises, that the war will not be the only concern of the Australian people indefinitely. The war may end this year, and there are post-war problems which may have to be dealt with by the Parlia ment returned at the next elections. He ?must also realise that the mere fact that Wis party has turned itself into a 'win the war party' does not render its individ...

QUEENSLANDER IN A ZEPPELIN RAID. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

QUEENSLANDER IN A ZEPPELIN RAID. Some interesting news was. gatliered from men who returned last„week. .Many of the.: men... were severely battered^ ^nd- it should be sufficient to make a,ny elig ible go and do his duty. Pte. Tresden, who left in the 26th Bat talion, but later was transferred to the 12th Battalion, had a trying experience during a Zeppelin raid. He said that as soon as the Zeppelin came into view it was attacked by two aeroplanes, while the gunners on the anti-aircraft artillery opened out a terrific and accurate fire. Bombs began to fall with great rapidity. One aeroplane succeeded in rising suffi ciently to get over the 'baby-killer,' and brought it to earth. As it was falling it continued to drop its infernal bombs, and it was through one of these that Pte. Treseder received another wound, 4 be sides the one he had already received in France. The bomb in question blew a terrace of seven houses to pieces, killing two old people who lived opposite, four in the rear...

What the League Accomplished. AN INJUSTICE RECTIFIED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

What the League Accom plished. AN INJUSTICE RECTIFIED. C Readers will have noticed, in the last issue of the 'National Leader,' that we »drew attention to an injustice to a soldier's wife. The facts were simply these. The man had got into a little trouble while, abroad, and certain officials penalised his better half by stopping her allowance, contrary to instructions issued by the Defence Department. The matter was brought before the notice of the League, and, as is the custom in all cases of injustice, was taken to the proper ?authorities, with the result that in a few ?days the matter was rectified, and the lady received what was legally due to :her. We take no undue credit for what was .accomplished* as we are out to do any thing for the returned soldier or the de pendents of those who are serving, for we know from experience that they need someonevto 'flght their battles f-v«; th^ii. Amongst certain officers who perform .administrative duties in ? connection with the Defence Ac...

THE REAL ANZACS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

THE REAL ANZACS. There are plenty of slouch-hatted' soldiers in town, Doughty and debonair, stalwart and brown; Some are from Weymouth or Salisbury Plain, Others have 'pushed' in the Western campaign: Call them 'overseas soldiers' or 'down- under' men, Declare that each one is as daring as ten; Call them 'Cornstalks' or 'Fernleaves'— all out for a fight — ? _ ? But don't call them Anzacs, for that isn't right. The Anzacs — their ranks are but scanty ? all told — J Have a separate record illumined in gold. | Their blood on Gallipoli's ridges they poured, Their souls with the scars of that struggle are scored; ^ Not many are left, and not many are sound, And thousands lie buried in Turkish ground. These are the Anzacs; others may claim Their zeal and their spirit, but never their name. ' ; — London 'Punch.' To he able to have the things we want, that is riches; but to be able to do with out, that is power.
