OUR SHINING WHITE KNIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

OUR SHINING WHITE KNIGHTS. When in time to come we look back | upon the war and think of its most i salient points, none of its new and amaz ing feats will strike us as so heroic and audacious as those of our flying men of both services. So complete is their mas tery of the air that we can truly say that to man nothing is now impossible. Not in vain was this beautiful motto given to the Royal Flying Corps, for in more senses than one, time and again have they truly 'touched the stars,' not so much by their marvellous military deeds as by their sheer audacity and coolness, and above all by their chivalry towards the enemy. The aviator who, his machine riddled by bullets, insisted on dropping a memorial wreath of exquisite flowers at -the funeral of the famous German pilot, Immelmann, was a case in point. These young airmen of all countries seem a race apart, without the hatred and animosities of other branches of the army. Ev,en the Prussian airman treats a fellow-enemy well, and pro...

Assault on Returned Soldier. WHILE IN INVALID CHAIR. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

Assault on Returned Soldier. WHILE IN INVALID CHAIR. For the benefit of the recently-returned soldier who may not be acquainted with the state of affairs existing at the pre sent time we will throw a little light on to the subject by publishing the following letter. The Returned Soldiers' Association ad vertised asking the lady who witnessed the assault on the returned soldier who was in an invalid chair at the Yarra-barik (Melbourne) on Saturday, October 21, to call at the association's office, on tne fourth floor of the Block-arcade. In re sponse to this, the following letter, signed 'A True Australian,' was for warded to Mr. Franklyn Murray, secre tary, and was handed to the National Referendum Council of Victoria: — 'It's a ? pity that the dirty, rotten soldier in the chair wasn't killed. I hope the Germans will kill the dirty Australian rotters at the front. Good luck to the Gelrmans. We hope they will win the wa*\ To hell with Billy Hughes and his dirty conscription crew. The ...

News from the Dead. HOW THE 9TH SUFFERED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

News from the Dead. HOW THE 9TH SUFFERED. All men who have served in the 9th Battalion have been under the impres sion that Capt. M. Wilder, who after wards took up his proper name again, Neligan, had been killed. We are pleased to be able to contradict the report by publishing a copy of a letter from the officer in question, written to a member of ithe 9th Battalion, who has just re turned. The letter is addressed 'Empire Hospital, Vincent-square, London, S.W., and is as follows: — 'I was very glad to get your letter, and very sorry to hear you have to go back 'to Australia. About myself: I hear- on all sides that I was killed. It seems to have been the Com mon report. It arose through the regi mental medical officer saying he was afraid I was done for. However, I am doing well, and expect to be back by the end of next month. I got a piece blown out of my head leading a raid. A good deal of bone had to be cut away, but with my usual luck no lasting damage was done. I am sure you wi...

The I.W.W. DISSENSION AMONGST UNIONS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

The I.W.W. DISSENSION AMONGST UNIONS. The community at large will do well to keep a sharp lookout for developments of the I.W.W. movement. They are work ing vigorously amongst the unions, and are receiving a fair amount of success, their latest being the capture of support from the Cobar branch of the Federated Mine Employees' Association of Austra lia. That body passea motions denounc ing the sentences passed on the Sydney reprobates, and demanding their release. That proves conclusively that the union mentioned is in sympathy with the go slow and sabotage doctrines of the I.W.W. 'That is one union, but at the same time the Goulbourn branch of the Amalga mated Society of Carpenters and Joiners passed a motioif denouncing the I.W.W. doctrines on the ground that they were contrary to the tenets of -trade unionism, the object of which is to build up and acquire wealth, not destroy it. That is exactly it; we must not abso lutely kill the goose that lays the golden egg, for without capi...

GLEANINGS FROM HOME JOURNALS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

GLEANINGS FROM HOME JOURNALS. 'Mr. Oscar Asche's new play at' His Majesty's, 'Chin Chin Chow,' can be heartily recommended to those who revei in the splendor of the East,' says a London writer, 'for dt is 'Kismet' over again, only more elaborate. The scenery is of the kind which consists of broad splashes of color, and the dresses are I strange and wild and wonderful, and of many and varied hues.' And in this con nection it may not be generally known that it is to Miss Brayton's wonderful genius in color that the success of these artistic productions of Mr. Asche are due. Miss Brayton spends hours in a darkened theatre trying the effect in artificial light of the various color schemes, curtains, floor coverings, and upholstering, and her own beautiful costumes are dyed and re-dyed by a secret process until the desired effect is obtained. Indeed, there are many women in London who would give much to obtain that secret. H.I.H. the Grand Duchess George of Russia is doing valuable work ...

Why Patronise the Greeks? AUSTRALIANS' FATAL PROPENSITY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

Why Patronise the Greeks? AUSTRALIANS' FATAL PROPENSITY. Everyone knows that Australian cities are full of Greek cafes and Greek drink ing shops, and that they are very well patronised by Australian men and women. ? Everyone does not know, however, that, those eating-houses, in addition to being filthy, are run by people whose com patriots in Greece betrayed the British and French in their great Gallipoli ad venture, and whose craven king, Constan tine, has been playing fast and loose with the Allies ever since that historic 15th April, 1915. How many people, outside ?the returned soldiers,' know that Greeks acting as brigade interpreters were shot for treachery? Do the people of Aus tralia realise that, had it not been for the blackest treachery of which the Greek is capable, the Union Jack and the tri color would even now be floating over Constantinople. During the British occu pation of Egypt, Cairo and Alexandria swarmed with spies, many of whom were Greeks in the pay of the Cen...

Don't Crush Germany! FINLAYSON'S SQUEAL. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

Don't Crush Germany ! FINLAYSON'S SQUEAL. 'As far as the war was concerned, noth ing could be worse than the triumph of the theories of the philosopher Niltzsche or the vindication of the doctrine of Von Bernhardi. In point of fact, nothing could be worse for civilisation thaij a German victory. (Hear, hear.) It was the duty of Australians, as a component part , of the Empire, to strive towards a complete and, more particularly, a lasting peace.'' Could anything more contradictory than the above emanate from an Australian legislator? In one breath Finlayson says nothing could be worse than a German victory, and in the next hfe advocates a peace^ which he knows in his heart of hearts will be but a .patched-up affair, neither complete nor lasting. If Mr. Fin layson is really in earnest in his profes sions as a lover of peace he should direct all his energies towards the securing of recruits, for men, and yet more men, are required to finish this war and ensure ^ ? permanent peace.

(To the Editor of the "National Leader.") [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

(To the Editor of the 'National Leader.') Sir, — I do not know whether I am right in speaking as I intend doing. Don't you think it is about time that a deputation waited on Senator Pearce requesting or demanding that . officers and men who have been playing soldiers for a number of years, and costing the different States a lot or money, should be sent to tne front and their places taken -by returned officers and men, who could do the work equally as well as those men who are actually taking their places, and the men wh0 are justly entitled to their position. They are men who have played the game in every, sense, and I personally think it is a positive disgrace, and not only that, but it is dishonorable, for these men to remain here when there are so many returned soldiers who are wanting positions and cannot get them, more especially as these men were given to understand that positions would be found for them on returning to Australia. There are positions and positions. There certa...

Answers to Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 12 January 1917

Answers to Correspondents. [No notice will be taken of communica tions insufficiently stamped, and we ?cannot guarantee to return MS unless accompanied by stamps.] - R.C. : You are correct in your surmise, and his Grace Archbishop Duhig is out of the hunt, or is absent-minded, or some thing. A Roman Catholic priest did, by word, attempt to break the peace during the conscription campaign. It was in Bow en that a certain priest of the Roman Catholic faith declared that he would fight for the 'anti.'s' if the country became involved in civil war. Glitter: The Billjims and Billzacs who volunteered in 1914 and 1915 required no 'special concessions' to attract, them to the recruiting Office. Strikes us mighty forcibly that the Government will be next providing, first-class cabins on troopships, and a six-hour day at the front, with £1 ?per day.

Brave Queenslander. KILLS 8 GERMANS, CAPTURES 24. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 19 January 1917

Brave Queenslander. i KILLS 8 GERMANS, CAPTURES 24. Amongst the men to return recently was Pte. Andrews, of the 26th Battalion, who has the distinction of being the only man back in Australia at present who has won two medals for bravery in the present war. At Gallipoli, Pte. Andrews won the DjC.M. by killing a number of Turks single-handed, while holding No. 4 ?H tunnel. In France his unit was one of those which captured Pozieres. Probably this was one of the greatest fights the Australians ever put -up, and a large por tion of the attacking force were Queens landers. They succeeded, and entered Pozieres, while other troops worked round the two flanks. For twenty-four hours a hand-to-hand fight ensued, and' it was dur ing this engagement that Pte. Andrews again distinguished himself by killing eight Germans and capturing 24, as he said, 'on his pat.' For this brave act he was recommended for the.V.C., but was awarded the new Military Medal, and will, in all probability, receive the...
