TO-DAY IS ANZAC DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 April 1924

TO-DAY IS ANZAC DAY. On this day, nine years ago, men of our race died heroically for a great causc. If that were all, Anzac Day would not differ from many other days in the long history of the British peo ples. The Landing would then have ranked with many another gallant feat of arms, challenging the admira tion of men by its daring and by the unflinching valor of those engaged in it. To Australians the Day will javer stand for something more than that — for Anzac Day marked the birth of our nation. The gallant band of Australian citizens who shared with the soldiers of Empire that glorious adventure laid the sure foundations of the Aus tralia that is to be. They sealed the charter of our nationhood with their blood and laid down their lives that the nation might be free. Anzac Day is still in some sense a day of mourning. It will ever be a solemn day. But as the newer gener ation takes the place of those who lived through the awful days of the war Anzac Day will become a day of th...

FOOD FOR BOLSHEVISM. PADEREWSKI'S POODLE. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 April 1924

FOOD FOR BOLSHEVISM. PADEREWSKI'S POODLE. M. Paderewski, the famous pianist, owing to the illness of 'Pingy,' a pet Pekinese spaniel, cancelled a week's concert engagements and re turned to Chicago from Sioux City, Iowa, in his private car, in order to consult four eminent veterinarians. The latter, following a consulta tion held in the dog's special com partment in the car, stated, 'We do not expect him to live through the day. He has been over-pampered. His teeth are practically gone,1 be cause of high living.' Meantime newspaper correspond ents are keeping a 'death watch,' adding solemnity to the musician's distress and the grief of his wife. 'Pingy' is 15 years of age, and is fat and rheumatic, and minus an eye. He was the gift of a Chinese prince. Later reports state that the poodle has died from senile -gastritis, ahd been cremated, Madame Pade rewski taking the ashes for burial iii Switzerland in the garden of an estate where other pets were in terred.

ARE POLICE CORRUPT? GRAVE ALLEGATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 April 1924

ARE POLICE CORRUPT? GRAVE ALLEGATIONS. Affidavits have been sworn by ex- 1 members of the licensing police who were* dismissed for taking peirt in. the police strike, in Melbourne, al leging that corruption, collusion, arid intimidation were rife in the licensing branch of the Victorian police force in 1023. A Royal Commission, they said, was demanded by them at the time of the strike. They declared that in less than a year 80 charges made against hotel and restaurant keepers by the subordinate police were subse quently withdrawn after influence had been exerted by an outside body. It is also alleged that the police received occasional instructions to keep away from certain hotels where functions were being held without the necessary permit from the Licensing Court.

BAD ENGLISH. EISTEDDFOD REVELATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 April 1924

BAD ENGLISH. EISTEDDFOD REVELATIONS. 'If the teachers themselves are not taught to speak properly how can we expect pure English from their stu dents?' Mr. Bertram Flohm, adju dicator in the elocutionary and liter ary sections of Bathurst eisteddfod, asks that question in the course of a criticism of the methods of the Education Department in the teach ing of English and elocution. Sixty per cent, of the competitors, according to Mr. Flohm, turned 'Feb- ruary' into 'Febuary'; and 80 per cent, turned 'out' into 'owt,' 'now' into 'neow,' and 'down' into 'deown.' Fifty per cent, turned the vowel 'i' into 'oi,' and as long as the Edu cation Department refrained from doing its manifest duty in teaching the children English, those, faults would not be rectified. The youngest students were not the worst offend ers in the matter of the impurity of vowel sounds. This impurity of speech was even more marked amongst students of tho high school.

BERRIMA DISTRICT FOOTBALL LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 25 April 1924

BERRIMA DISTRICT FOOT BALL LEAGUE. The meeting of the Berrima Dis trict Football League on Wednes day provided a little excitement. Some delegates complained that pro per notice had not been given of the previous meeting, and after discus sion the proceedings at that gather ing were declared null and void. The meeting then set to work to re-consider the business transacted at the previous meeting, but very lit tle change was made in the decisions then arrived at. The decision to play the finals at Bowral was not re-affirmed, the mat ter being left open till next meeting. Meanwhile, the ground authorities at Moss Vale and Bowral are to be ap proached with a view to getting the best terms from each.

RETURN THANKS. ATR. C. H. PICKARD and Family desire to return sincere thanks to all friends for their kind expres sions of sympathy in their recent sad bereavement. IN MEMORIAM. (BROTHERS — In loving memory of ^ our darling daughter, Millie Crothers, who passed away 26th April, 1923. She left her home in perfect health, Not thinking death was near, Nor dreaming that she never would Return to those she loved so dear. You are gone but not forgotten; In a lonely grave you sleep; You were loved by all, dear Millie, In our memory you are sweet. Fairer than the flowers above her, Faded on her still, cold breast, Placed by gentle hands that loved her, Little Millie's gone to rest. A little bud as white as snow WaB by an angel given; Fearing the earth might spoil its bloom, God planted it in Heaven. (Inserted by her loving mother bothers and sisters).
