CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not necessarily identify our selveswith the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] RECRUITING MEETING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 21 July 1915

CORRESPONDENCE. OWe do not necessarily identify oar ' selveswith the opinions expressed by our correspondents, g RECRUITING MEETING. TO THB EDITOR. Sir, —I fail to understand why the hysterical individual whose letter appeared in the columns of your last issue Bhould claim the title of "Patriot." There are I less distinguished titles that would have been more in keeping with the tdne of the letter re ferred to, which, after all, was •only a tirade of abuse on the officials of the patriotic league. ;For the information of "Patriot" I might explain that the arrange ments for the recruiting meeting to be held in Cressy were in the hands of our State member, Mr Johnstone, and any postpone ment of the date was due to the fact that arrangements could not !be completed in time to allow of the Cressy public being notified •of the fact. It was only due to the untiring efforts of our mem ber, assisted by a few gentlemen in the township, whose patriot ism took the foim of actions, not ■tfords,...

Cbe Pioneer* CRESS'S, WEDNESDAY. JULY 21. A recruiting meeting was held, in the mechanics' hall on Monday night. The hall was crowded. Stirring appeals to the young to enlist were made by Messrs J. G. Johnstone and Chatham, M.L,A.'s. At the close of the meeting 13 young men enlisted. Pressure on our space compels us to hold over an extended report until next issue. Mr Jack Fraser, of Weering, met with a nasty accident on Sunday. He was attending to his motor bike, when the machine fell on his left lepr, fracturing a small bone in the ankle, which will necessitate his having to lay ! up for a couple of weeks. The concert, for the Belgian and Red Cross funds, held last evening in the Werneth wool shed, was largely attended,, and a great success. The dance that followed was also well attended, and an enjoyable function. Attention is directed to the important land sales of CreBsy and other properties by Messrs J. G. Johnstone and Co.
