UNISM, A POST-WAR PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 February 1917

UNISM, A POST-WAR PROBLEM. In dealing wiitli th,e necessity for pro viding employment after the war for something like five millions of British subjects now on active service, 'Pacific' (Fremantle) says that :Stg,te action of an unprecedented character will be neces sary to avert the disastrous results of a g'igantic scramble for work. Our corre spondent contends that even if the five niillions on ap£ive service, should be re oT\C- rtin'nlrlrr rwnriTr nn wrlliAWfi auoui VSZKA VlUAUiYlJ lllO/lljr UI/11C1 JJLHJ.11U.L1Q would be deprived of work and forced against the wall unless there should be 'organised State supervision. The one vital principle, which must be grasped, he says, is that of the right to work, which applies to all — men and women, civilians and those at present on service. As an advocate of the industrial and poli tical policy known a,s 'Unism,' 'Pacific' argues that the right -to work implies the duty of the State— not ,ne'cessairily to pro vide, but to find work for ...

NOT WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 February 1917

NOT WANTED. (By 'TOM JAMES.') Not where the cannons in battle are roaring, Not where the shrapnel is bursting o'erhead, Not where the rifles their death-streams are pouring, Not where the wounded lie mixed wlith the dead: That's where true men with real courage should be, jduu mat s not tne piace tor a snirKer like me. . ' Not where the best men I know are defending. ?- Weak ones to-day from the rage of the Hun, Battered and torn as 'gainst wrong they're contending, Shiv'ring 'neath snow-storms blistered by sun; They, do their duty, 'tis easy to see, But duty can ne'er move a shirker like me. I Not there— oh, no! 'tlis the brave they are . . seeking — Brave men with heaps of grit, muscle, and go — Men who from duty would ne'er be found sneaking, v Anxious t0 'be at close grips with the foe. , Men they need there who from skulking are free, So they would not welcome a shirker like me.

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 February 1917

(To the Editor.) Sir, — I crave space in your excellent little paper to place before the public some of the unjust methods adopted by the military authorities in dealing with returned soldiers. I'm a returned soldier, discharged on September 18, 1916. My father and mother, who are both depen dent on me, are in receipt of an old-age pension of 9s per -week. Neither was j allowed separation allowance by the mili- { t.fl.rv nntTrrvrtitioa Tho-vr arc PTneptoil tn live on 9s per week, plus the small allot ment I was able to give them — an almost impossible task. Moreover, when I was discharged I was told, and it appeared on my official discharge, that I was medi cally unfit for further active service. Notwithstanding my unfitness, I was not allowed a farthing in the way of pensiion. I put in a claim for it, on the grounds of my unfitness to resume my former oc cupation, and was told I was fit to work. Now, if I was medically unfit for active service, why was I not given a pension? If, on...

THE DISTRICT GUARD. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 February 1917

THE DISTRICT GUARD. We are the boys of the District Guard, Hard doers and fairly hot stufi:; Handsome, (intelligent fellows are barred: We are old, we are ugly and tough. We do it in style when we form into file; - To make us smart they've all tried: Are we downhearted? — well, boys, I should smile, For we're too damned tough to be fried. We are short and we're long, lean, lanky, and tall, A magnificent body are we, And the wonderful skill we show in our drill Is a beautiful sight you should see. At forming platoons we are curious coons, From myself t0 the tenderest kid of us, Which inclines me to say they'll send us away, Darned glad in their hearts to get rid of us. The mistakes that are made at our daily parade To our captain are very distressing, For, God knows, we look fine when drawn up in line, . But,, alack, no -one thinks of his dress ing. One day at the halt, 'twas a raw non com.'s fault — I weep when I think of the sight of him — 'On the left form platoon!'- — every bless...

From in formation received, however, I am prone to believe that the best land at Beerbur rum has not been given to the settlers.

Australia To-day. GOOD OLD MUDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 February 1917

Australia To-day. GOOD OLD MUDDLE. Some years ago a globe-trottling jour nalist named John Foster Fraser visited Australia, and after taking a few casual glances over the landscape of three mil lion square miles he wrote a book. He called it 'Australia To-day,' or something of the kind. Fraser was subjected to some hostile criticiism from Australians wh0 ? could not stand 'being shot at. Fraser told us a lot of home truths about ourselves, but lie glanced very superfici ally at our political system and our poli ticians, otherwise he might have en larged his work by at least a couple of chapters. Had anyone in the days when . his book was written ventured to fore tell that Australia wpuld one day in the not-far-distant future dishonor herself by leaving her sons in the lurch he, would have been laughed to' scorn. Had he foretold that Australian political unions would ferment four thousand and fifty one strikes, more or less, during a great war, he would have been led to Goodna or Gla...

THE YELLOW FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 February 1917

THE YELLOW FLAG. ['Mr.' Ryan has nailed his colors (no conscription) to the mast.' — rNews item.( (By 'TOM JAMES.') He nailed his colors to the mast, But fear was in his eye; He nailed those colors hard and fast. Said he: 'Until the danger's past, And gone for aye is war's fierce blast, Till ? J. _ tXT.I ? 1* T j:- m ill YOte IN U HI His colors to the mast he nailed — Said he: 'I fear no foe,' While thousands loud those colors hailed Who at thoughts of conscription quailed. He knew full well the boys he'd failed By advocating 'No.' His yellow rag unto the mast He nailed, with blatant shout, But he will surely find at last That he has made a blunder vast; For when the boys come home they'll cast Him and his cronies out.

Where Socialism Failed. A MATTER OF MORALS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 February 1917

Where Socialism Failed. (By STEWART GRAHAME) A MATTER OF MORALS. Socialists are not fond of talking about New Australia, but when they do, its dis tressing failure is accounted for by as serting either (1) that the country to which Lane's party migrated was unsuit able for white men to settle in, or (2) that the party itself was made up of visionaries and work-shy individuals without the necessary energy and expe rience in pioneering. The first of these statements is confuted in advance by the t testimony of the experienced prospectors themselves, ana oy tne iact mat ouier Britishers and Germans live healthily and are doing very well in Paraguay. To dispose of the second it fis only heces- j sary to quote from the Sydney 'Bulletin,'' a journal which was utterly opposed to the movement, and tried hard to dissuade the public from joining it, the following unsolicited testimonial: — 'The New Aus ' trallian contingent contains the best material for such an experiment the world could fur...

Ready-Made Farms. AND THE REPATRIATION PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 February 1917

Ready-Made Farms. AND THE REPATRIATION PROBLEM. Some years ago the imperial Govern ment sunk a few hundred thousands in an attempt to introduce ,cotton-growing on an extenslive scale into South Africa. The scheme failed, with heavy loss to' the Imperial Government— not because ?the soil and 'Climate of South Africa did not lend itself , to the cultivation of cot ton, but 'because the business was left to the natives, who mads a hash hf ,it.. The growing of cotton has been tried in Queensland, but the labor question has so far militated against its success. It is an established fact that huge areas of Queensland coastal soil are admirably adapted to the cultivation of -cotton, which is essentially a tropical plant which flourishes on a minimum rainfall. Un like the grain crops, which have been so extensively introduced into Australia, cotton does not require a great deal of moisture; nor is (it necessary for the farmer to devote his whole attention to it. as in the case of wheat or m...
