Reconciliation [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 August 1939
Reconciliation oOo Australians received with genuine delight the news that Mr Menzies and the A.C.T.U. had come to an agreement over the National Register. We are only a-handful of people in a huge land, and we can ill-afford to allow disruptive forces to render us in twain. Mr Menzies, Mr Curtain and the A.C.T.U. people should be con gratulated on possessing those traits which allowed them to discuss in a reasonable and tolerant manner the objections raised to the Register. Unfortunately, many Australians are not tolerant enough. If a man's views do not coincide with ours we are inclined to damn him. Few men. (or women) are so bad that they agitate for certain things hoping to disrupt the country. We should be prepared to listen to the other fellow's arguments. If we don't agree, no harm is done, but in listening we improve our knowledge. A prominent U.A.P. man told us recently that he objected to the "always right" attiude of the Labor Party. He said that party would not give an i...

Let's Write a Letter TO THOSE WHO WANT TO BE HAPPY. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 August 1939
Let's Write a Letter 000 TO THOSE WHO WANT TO BE HAPPY. Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,-Really to say in adequate form what we-want to this week would require a musical score. But as the compositors object-it gives them spots before the eyes-we have to content ourselves with plain, straight.out, common-or-garden prose. Everyone wants to be really happy; that is the greatest thing in life. Admittedly there are a few unfortunates who are only happy when they are growling, but, then again, they have reached their goal-they are happy. Without boasting of any particular qualifications to testify, we humbly venture the opinion that the easiest way to be happy is to possess a healthy, well-developed body; a healthy, clean conscience usually goes as a natural corollary. We are right behind this national movement for Physical Fitness, but, judging from the pace it is travelling, we all will be qualified for the old age pension before it starts, which would be disappointing, But why wait for the G...

Eyes & Ears of the Turf PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE-LINE MEN AND HORSES SPRINT DUEL AT CAULFIELD [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 August 1939
Eyes & Ears of the Turf -u PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE-LINE MEN AND HORSES SPRINT DUEL AT CAULFIELD (By THE METEOR) '- . Since writing in this column last week that Manrico was our ,best sprinter, I have been asked by Men. tone track regulars whether I had forgotten about El Golea when writ ing my pars. As a matter of fact, El Golea's Newmarket triumph was in my mind when grading Manrico No. 1, and I expect my contention to be proved on Saturday, when the pair will clash in the Moondah Plate at Caulfield with only lib. between them in weight. The race is likely. to' be most interesting, but I consider that Manrico's phenomenal speed'?will enable him to overcome. E,1 Golie;'s strong finishing powers. Of ?course, there are others in the race, but ,I am concentrating on .horses trained "down-the-line." J. Holt, trainer of Manrico, fin ished well down on the winning trainers' list for the season just completed, but he is likely to start the new season wvell by leading in a winner, or tw...

IT'S A FISHY STORY [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 August 1939
•IT'S A FISHY STORY The matter of high fish prices seems to have been taken up in earnest by the Housewives' Asso ciation, and .we are proud to have been one, of the first 'to bring the subject under notice. Once the -ladles of ,that body get their teeth into somethiing-even 'fish there are bound to be some re suits. Although we are naturally interested and concerned about the cost of fish which makes it out of the reach of many families, we are as equally con cerned about the men who have lost their licenses. In speaking to these men we have heard some allegations which we accept as the truth, al though we 'have had no means of checking up on them. It is alleged by the men that they are continually harassed and charged with offences which, appear minor. We do not claim:that all the fisher men- are angels with snowy white wings. Neither would we be so fool ish as to suggest that the inspectors have barked tails and horns. No doubt there is much to be said for both sides, but somethi...
