CRICKET CHATTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 5 December 1919

"- Saturday was again ideal for cricket, and <juite a crowd gathered at the local oval .to witness "1&e match Terowie v. ;:Buffs. Whilstthecricket was iiot-of a high standard, yet the end of the con test provedmost exciting. . - It' was a pleasure to see, Rankin get going again, and whilst he was slow -compared with Budden, his was -s. fine innings. He was caught most superbly on the boundary' by Simpson. Horace ' /Collins had been most land to him p little earlier, missing a chance off his brother that few could have missed. The Buffs have finished 2 rounds, and are still minus many points, but they are a much superior team now, and are sure to make a start during this next round. As it happened, tjiey were nearly defeated, Terowie just losing on the post . Terowie's first men scratched around ia. such a futile manner that a draw seemed inevitable.

District Soldiers and Land. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 12 December 1919

District Soldiers and Land* ~ Few, who live oil the outer circle of applications and pro mises, realise the rotten con dition of things as far as the re turned soldier is concerned. As the troopship entered Albany there stepped aboard a returned digger who for the remainder of the voyage painted rosy pictures of what was awaiting in our own land. The country was to be had for the asking and no re quest would ever be met with re fusal. Certainly the more sens ible took this class of remark in the comic opera vein, but the manner in which the soldiers mind was turned from thoughts of war, to thoughts of going on the land, seemed to make a clear case for suggesting that there would be little trouble in this direction. With repatriation the soldier has little to complain of, but with the soldier settlement offices, and the land board, things seem to have got into the rotten e.t state that ever man could wish for. Men who have been working on the land all their lives in the district, hav...
