THE "COMBING-OUT" PROCESS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

THE 'COMBING-OUT' PROCESS. No stronger support of the assertion that there are a large number of m'en eligible for active service employed by the Defence Department could be desired than a statement issued on Saturday by the Minister for Defence (Senator Peajrce) (says the M'elbourne 'Argus'). In consequence of the public feeling aroused by the employment of these elig ible men on .'home service work, the Director-General of Recruiting (Mr. Mac kinnon, M.L.A.) asked for a classified re cord of the employees of the department. This return deals only wfith the Victoria Barracks, Melbourne, and is the basis of the Minister's statement. It shows that j of a total of 2097 employees at the bar- ? 'racks in that StaJte 283 men are of mili tary age, and 'apparently eligible for active - service,' who have not volun teered. There are 198 others who have volunteered for active service, but have been 'debarred from enlisting by supe rior authority.' The remaining em ployees comprise 615 men wh...

ANZAC CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

ANZAC CLUB. I The Anzac Club for Returned Soldiers proved a great boon during the Christ mas holidays to men who could not leave the city. Recently,1 however, so many returned men have found their way back to the ranks, either to return to the front or for home service, that the numbers attending the club have not been so large as usual in the daytime, but the club is well attended in the evenings. For the sake of those men who recently arrived it should be known that there is no fee for membership, the only qualification necessary being the fact of having been to the front., - There is a billiard-room, with a good billiard-table, for which no charge is made; there is a large lounge room, with games provided, and a canteen; also a quiet rest-room, whei'e writing material is furnished free of charge. Numerous requests have been made for the resumption of the socials which were held fortnightly, when returned soldiers can bring their friends. An announce ment will be made next week of...

Returned Soldiers and Pat riots' National Political League. The year 1917 has opened very auspici ously so far as this League is concerned. During one week in this month no fewer than 100 returned soldfiers joined up, and 'the new membership since the beginning of January totals close on 300. The 'National Leader,' wfhich is the official organ or the League, as also progressing isplendidly, having lattracted a large num ber of new (subscribers during the month. In reply to (those journals which lose no opportunity of traduding the League and its orgajn, St may be as well to state that the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League is not a Tory organisation. Neither is it a isitriaightout Labor organisation. .It is absolutely in dependent, and stands for true constitu tional, democratic government.

The Problem of Man-Power. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

The Problem of Man-Power. ?Notwithstanding that the German nation and the dual monarchy, together wi)tlh their dupes, Bulgaria and Turkey, are nearing the end of their tether, alt is obvious that they have yet tremendous powers of resistance. Just as a cornered rat will turn on its' assailants and fight wacn every ounce ;or energy ait possesses, .so will . a naltiion or combination of .nations, wlien 'tJhey realise that they are doomed to .ultimate defeat, put tip a des perate flight in defence of their terri tories, Especially is this true of the Prussians, whose country has remained practically inviolate for generations. Just as the peoples 'Composing the British Empire would prove a terrible opponent to amy alliance which had the temerity to attempt to conquer them, so will the Prussians, now that they realise .the hopelessness of their cams© and the probability of an overwhelming offensive against' them, prove .more dangerous in defeat than they did when victory seemed to bid fa...

Mr. Fihelly Challenged. RESIGN AND OPPOSE RETURNED SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

Mr. Fihelly Challenged. RESIGN AND OPPOSE RETURNED SOLDIER. Tthe Assistant Minister for Justice (Mo*. Fihelly) has been, challenged to resign his ©eat da the State House and contest it against a returned soldier, not o-n the sectarian question, but purely on a ques tion of loyalty to the British Empire. This challenge (is the outcome of that Minister's remark that the motherland was ithe home of cant, humbug, and hypo- ' criisy. Looking at such a remark dis passionately, any child could see that disloyalty was in the heart of the gentle man who made it. When a responsible Minister of any Government makes a statement lie makes it on behalf of the Government, or as an expression of the opinion which hie knows his other col leagues in the Cabinet share. That must be is'o. If not, any Minister could go about making statements ait random, for wfhich mo other Minister would be respon sible; in fact, other members of the Cabi miet could disassociate themselves with anything .which did not ...

Domestic Economy. A CAREER FOR WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

Domestic Economy. A CAREER FOR WOMEN. 'The old order, changeth and giveth place to the new,' and truly tin nothing more than in ithe outlook on life of the average woman. Never in the whole history of the World have women (taken such a leading part in the public life of ithe day. In England the need for men ih the firing-line has necessitated the 'calling up of women for emergency work, ajnd might nobly have (they responded. Munition-making, motor and tram driv ing, letter-carrying, and farm work ail have been taken up, and successfully, by these brave English girls. Nor are Aus tralian girls less ready to step into the breach when occasion arises, though, judging by the present condition of things regarding recruiting, there does (not appear to be any chance of emer gency services ibeliing heeded. All this (unrest an'd upheaval, however, seems to have 'Stimulated the desire which has been so marked even in the pre-war days — the desire for work and interests other than those of the...

WAR COUNCIL EMPLOYS CIVILIAN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

WAR COUNCIL EMPLOYS CIVILIAN. Numerous 'inquiries have reached this office as to the reason why a civilian is employed in the office of the Queensland War Council. It is common knowledge ithat the members of the said War Coun cil are never tired of advising private employers to comb out the allilgibles an their employ, with la view to both assist ing recruiting and making room for com petent returned soldiers. It is a. fact, moreover, (that Ithe Premier is aware that a civilian lis employed as a clerk lin the War Council. .The work iin which hie is engaged is not so complicated that it could not be undertaken by a returned soldier possessing average intelligence, and it /is certain that if a decent returned soldier did occupy ithe position (his com rades would receive more courteous treatment than is at present accorded them. Surely 'the members of the War Council cannot, under the circumstances, expect private 'employers to take their advice and get rid of the eligtibles. It is ?ab...

Sportsmen and Recruiting. MORE ACTIVITY NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

Sportsmen and Recruiting. MORE ACTIVITY NEEDED. With the launching of .the new recruit ing scheme it was decided to secure the , co-operation of all sporting bodies in order to secure as many recruits out of the ranks of the sportsmen as possible. The bodies expressed their willingness, and it certainly looked as though some thing big was going to be done in the way of a sportsmen's unit on the lines of the British Sportsmen's Battalion. Recently the Q.T.C. gave permission to certain returned soldiers to address meetings on the racecourse under the auspices of the Sportsmen's Recruiting Committee. The meetings were held, but, strange to say, only one of the offi cials of the Turf Club would give the boys an introduction to an audience on the flat, while the men who spoke in the paddock had no assistance given them j whatsoever. Surely that falls short of ( the enthusiasm and support which might have been expected? Then, agalin, at a meeting of the sporting bodies, held at Preston Ho...

Is Germany Beaten? THE EVIDENCE ACCUMULATES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

Is Germany Beaten? THE EVIDENCE ACCUMULATES. Since the beginning of the year 1916 — that year of g reat preparation spoken of by Kitchener — ithe British peoples lhave been regaled with cablegrams de scribing wonderful Allied victories and articles from neutral pens declaring that' Germany was starving, Austria was in a parlous plight, while Bulgaria and Turkey were getting fed up with Teuton domina tion. and were on the .point of pulling out of the war or going over to the other side. Th'e entry of Roumania into the conflict on the side of the Allied Powers was the signal for an outburst of enthu siasm on the part of most British people. Roumania originally had an army of half a million men, and was considered powerful enough to ihold the Germans and Austrians at bay on the Western frontier, and the Bulgars on the Southern frontier. Unfortunately for the success of the Allied strategy in the East, Rou mania struck prematurely and sent Iher armies in one impetuous rush over the Tran...
