Nevertheless, if a thing is rotten to the core, its harm- J ful effects to the nublic shnnW Ha) exposed without needless delay, even though the party taking such action has no definite plans, at th© moment, for replacing the system thus attack ad with another. Rather have no system for a short time than allow a bad one to continue. All this to lead us to the assertion that our parlia* mentary system, both Federal and State, is an affront to an intelligent people^ In this article' we do not intend to refer at length to obsolete and useless Upper Houses, which should be abolished ; Ryan's (Queens land) mad career in his bid for pop ularity by pandering to one .class only ; Tasmania's sorry spectacle of a newly elected parliament voting nacu a use 01 saia...

Ball at Burekup. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 8 October 1919
Bali at BoraEcup. On Friday evening over 50 couples spent a most enjoyable evening at the local hall. The occasion was a fancy and evening dress ball in aid of the ijall and building fund, and, as besides the dancers there was a large number of spectators, the finances should receive a substantial lift. Miss Kath leen Power was the pianist and well maintained her reputation for bright and sparkling music marked by excell ent time. Mr J. F. McConvill had had charge of the floor and made a goad master of ceremonies, keeping all busy from tbe opening dance until the final valse some time in the early hours of Saturday. The dancers were past masters (and mistresses) of the terpsichorean art and seemed equally at home in the old fashioned valse or the latest importation. Their energy was on a par with their ability and there were very few ^sitters out through the evenin&r. Fridav was & perfect day until just before evening when rain set in- unceasingly.

Dardanup [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 8 October 1919
Oardmyp ? ^ ? y^ ? The greatest excitement ot the week in Dardanup was tbe arrival, at Dardanup Park, of a bonny little son to Mr and Mrs Frank Venn. This makes the seventh olive branch and, , as the papers say, both are doing ? well. Not to mention noor old father who is as proud of the latest arrival as if it had been the first. Population and a white Australia are two of Mr Venn's strong points, and a few more of such sturdy patriots would not do Australia any harm at the present time. - Dropping the subject of babies and returniug to the time-honoured topic of ' spuds ' it would do one's eyes good to see the potatoes belonging to Messrs Venn and McDaniel they say the tops are so strong and heakhy that the birds have started to build in them, doubtless mistaking them for a permanent forest of a new kind. With potatoes at anything up to £50 a ton this should encourage your poor old townies to hope that possibly you may be able to buy a spud to wear on your watch chain in the near ...
