Correspondence (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 23 August 1927
Correspondence (To the Editor) Sir,-Just a few more words about the coloured boys seeing or knowing they were cried or howled down by the Football League and not allowed to play in the League competition. One of the supporters of that ruling and a prominent member of the League apparently has altered his opinion since he said that the coloured boys had insulted all and sundry including the spectat- ors.

Now in the name of com- mon sense, if the boys had insulted all and sundry, now they are good enough for him to associate with, and to compete against white men, race horse excerciser and trainers, and probably jockeys, which I think they are quite capable of doing.
