Appeasement the Gravity of the Coal Situa Tion is now most grimly self evident and no responsible aus Ralian who has Long predicted the present crisis will derive much Comfort from saying to the government As indeed nearly every responsible australian could say with perfect truth a told you the Public men who have consistently protested against the appeasement of the Coal miners Are still hysterically described As reactionaries 1 by the acting prime ill a ". Who is above All things eager to hide the now abundantly obvious fact that they have been right All along whereas the government has been Hope Lessly wrong. Appeasement is a cowardly and fatal policy. People who require to be appeased Are convicted Piso Facto of having demanded some Concession under menace expressed or implied. Whether it be the Danes and their Dan Geld or Hitler and his extortion at Munich the Circum stances Are always broadly the same. It is the blackmailer who profits from appeasement and who every time be is appeased grows stronger and Griedier and More outrageous. The Coal miners of this country Supply an almost classic Case. The government they now abuse and defy because there Are limits beyond which even this government cannot go has sur rendered to them Over and Over again and has treated them indeed with a scandalous degree of indulgence and partiality in the increasingly vain Hope that some Day they would be soothed and satisfied and would be con tent to do their Manifest duty to Australia. When the Currun government was first presented with a series of miners demands accompanied by the usual threats a trial of strength Between Canberra and the mining unions would undoubtedly have been unpleasant and from the party political Point of View exceedingly embarrassing. But vis a vis the miners the government was then at the height of its Power and authority and after a Short Sharp struggle anarchy on the Coal Fields would have breathed its last for the Dura Tion of the War. Or. Curtin and his colleagues hrs Tel r from the contest. The miners were appeased and in the process of appeasement the militants who had begun to dominate the mining Industry grew stronger and the government weaker. In the next blackmailing crisis therefore showdown would have been a More serious matter and so the government surrendered again and kept on surrendering being confronted each time with an alternative that grew More and More daunting. The inevitable was postponed but every postpone ment increased the difficult and Cost of the ultimate reckoning that now seems to be at hand. The declaration of Defiance issued by the miners federation must mean if it Means anything that the question so Long pending whether the miners or the National government and Parlia ment Are supreme in this country is about to be decided. The miners leaders Are Able to Tell each other no doubt that Australia could hardly be worse situated for a trial of strength with anarchy on the coalfields. We have no Reserve stocks whatever and the beginnings of the Transfer or the bulk of the British Navy to Pacific Waters indicate the rapid approach of strategic developments in which our need of Coal will be particularly pressing. All the essentials t f a blackmailer s Paradise have been created. The show Down that would have been Little More than troublesome two or three years ago now threatens to 1 be disastrous. But there can be no further appeasement that does not involve a final surrender of constituted authority. The government has retreated to the last ditch and must there make its stand sup ported As it would have been sup ported if it had found its courage at any time during its period of office by an overwhelming majority of the australian people. Al. Though this is a bad time for re solving the Coal crisis delay As always will make things worse. The Success of pending naval says Admiral sir Bruce Fraser will depend on Coal be cause Coal is vital to every opera we Are fortunate at least in the sense that the deployment of the British Fleet against Japan is still it would be in finitely better to discover now who rules Australia than to leave the matter for decision when the ships Are in action. Anarchy must be dethroned if Australia is to survive whether morally or materially and if we must pay the accumulated costs of appeasement let us _ do so with As Little delay As pos sible. The Mikado the bombs that have fallen a cording to Tokio in the grounds of the Imperial japanese Palace were intended for some less sacred target. To the present at All i events. Japan s enemies Are tar � from evincing any desire to kill or _ maim the Mikado. Fortunately for i himself that August potentate re presents an Enigma for the Western n world the allies do not seem to _ have made up their minds about " him. But it is the prevailing View that he is the merest puppet in the hands of the ruling faction ii and there is a school of thought _ whose members argue that after i Japan has been Defeated he might be found a very useful piece of r stage property in the bands of the if forces of occupation and Reform. " on the contrary of course be might not. The one thing certain is that if the emperor has any f authority at All he has never ?. Ceased to exert it to the utmost to our detriment and this being so l we can hardly be said to owe him 5 any special tenderness. If a stray t bomb were in fact to create a Sud Den vacancy for a new Mikado this might be unfortunate but it would not be catastrophic nor a particularly Gross violation of the Law r., of poetic Justice. Arresting the disease of soil erosion lessons of 1,500 Miles tour in Mallee and pastoral areas from Noel Adams Burra december 14. Today i completed a 1,500-mile journey through some of the worst of the drought afflicted and eroded country in South Australia Victoria and new South Wales. The journey which i made with the South australian soil conservator or. R. I. Herriot has occupied the better part of a fortnight. It has fallen into two parts and has been concerned with two aspects of what has been aptly called the disease of erosion. 1 we have seen the disease at work in the Mallee areas of South Australia and Victoria and also in a slightly different form on thousands of Square Miles in the Semi arid pastoral country of new South Wales and South Australia. I have already described the appalling desert conditions prevailing in the drier parts of the Murray Mallee and the Steps that Are slowly being taken to hold them in Check. The Mallee problem is huge but As or. Her riot has pointed out and proved by Bis work it can be managed. The great Sand drifts which especially beyond Loxton Are spreading like glaciers Over the face of the coun try can be held by sowing them with Rye com. Sowing with cereals is likewise the Only effective Means him. Herriot s View of keeping Down country which is Only just beginning to blow. The main difficulty that has to be overcome is the shortage of labor superphosphate Plant and seed to allow sufficient swings to be made at the right time. This is the immediate remedy. Before the disease can be taken properly in hand it is Plain that among other things there will have to be a change of Outlook toward the Mallee As a whole. The future of the Mallee will have to be considered not Only from the Point of View of what it can produce but at least equally from the Point of View of what is Best for the coun try. The Mallee has been developed primarily and almost wholly As wheat growing country. Or. Harrial s Canovic Tiaris in recent years sheep raising has tended More Ana More to displace wheat growing and the country has suffered in consequence. Or. Herriot is con Vinced and More and More Lar mers Are finding themselves in agreement with him that the Light Mallee soils Are Drifting not be cause they have been put under toe plough and their natural cover destroyed though that May be acknowledged As the original cause but because under the exigencies of War. They have Over a wide area been deprived of crop cover which alone can prevent them now from blowing. Much of the damage that is now taking place is being caused by sheep eating and trampling Down country that was formerly cropped More frequently. The problem being an economic one could scarcely be More formidable. It Calls for readjustments on a scale which preclude any comfortable expectation that they have but to be seated to be put in band. The alter nature however is too alarming to be contemplated. It can mean Only a further Advance of the desert into the already slender land resources of the state. In the dry pastoral areas of the Inland erosion has been thrust be fore the Public View during the past few months by the unprecedented dust storms that rising in the Interior have darkened the Sun Over Sydney and spread even As far As new zealand. The portent that Australia is observing is the equally sinister Cloud of dust that ten years ago awoke people in Washington to a realisation of what was happening in the dust bowl of the Middle West. Washington heeded the warning and put in hand the vast anti erosion Mea sures that have already made a re petition of the storms of 1934 impossible. Pastoral Pra Blans the problem i Australia so far As it affects the pastoral areas at any rate is consider ably different and More difficult. The dust bowl of the Middle West has a rainfall of 17 inches and is mainly agricultural country. In our pastoral areas where the dust storms Are occur ring the average rainfall is no higher than eight or nine inches and at a time of drought like the present is Down to no More than two inches. The unparalleled drought through which Australia is passing is of course the principal evil. The country is Bone dry. It has had to Worth while rain for More than two years and even before this present disastrous year began it had in places been under Semi drought conditions for something like four years. Not All areas have suffered to the same extent. In our journey we have seen nothing to equal the experience through which the West Darling country Between Wentworth and broken Hill is pass ing that tragic stretch of coun try constantly swept by fierce dust storms and almost Bare of the last vestiges of feed for its few remain ing flocks. To the North and the North East Fin South Australia conditions Are somewhat better though they Are deteriorating plans for greater London eight or ten new satellite towns London dec. 13.aap. The stationery office has pub listed a 200-Page Booklet outlining a greater London plan containing proposals for the decentralisation of More than 1.000,000 persons to other districts including eight or 10 new ii my towns. The author of the plan is pro Fessor Patrick Abercrombie who was commissioned in 1942 to draw up proposals by a standing con Ference on London regional plan Ning. Professor Abercrombie said that his aim was to discourage further growth of Industry and population within the London Region and to provide a better distribution and grouping plan a based on a division of title area into four concentric rings an inner suburban ring re presenting fully built up areas adjoining London county Council boundaries and suburban ring beyond the inner ring and extending to within 12 Miles from Charing Cross a Green Belt ring going five Miles farther and including nume Rous established areas of Popula Tion and an outer ring comprising the remainder of the regions. The total area London Envis aged is 2.717 Square Miles with a radius of 30 Miles from Charing Cross and a population of 10250,000. Many new roads Are recommended qty Ishin to express arterial highways and a number of Rin roads. Southern towns want water Supply schemes for an improved water Supply for Mclaren Vale and Wil Lunga areas were discussed at a meeting of the Mclaren Vale pro Gress association last night. It was pointed out that one of the most effective methods of obtaining a water Supply was by pumping from mount bold. It was also suggested that water might be obtained from the present main from Happy Valley to Sellick s Hill. Sir Herbert Hudd. My. And messes. Brookman and Bice. Macs attended the meeting. It was decided to urge the claims of the District through the Noar Lucia and Illunga District councils. British air chief now presumed dead London dec. 13.aap. Air chief marshal sir Trafford Leigh Mallory and lady Leigh Mallory Are now presumed to have died on november 11 in an air crash in route to Sauth est Asia. Air chief marshal Leigh Maury was on his Way to take up his appointment As air commander in chief in the South East Asia com Mand. His plane was never located after having left for its Destina Tion. Sheep the problem animal revision of views on pastoral erosion Burra december 14. The drought has shown up a very fundamental weakness in the land policy of this country said the soil conservator for South South Australia or. Herriot tonight in a statement on the so erosion problem in the pastoral areas. On the surface tile problem appears to be one or conditions brought about by the drought and it is certain that the drought is mainly responsible. But for the underlying cause it is necessary to look deeper. From the earliest Days of Settle ment the natural Bush cover has been knocked out of this country and unfortunately the process is still going on. Even those pastoralist who Are handling their places most efficiently Are conscious of the fact that their Bush is slip Ping. No pastoral holding is Safe from erosion As a Spear grass proposition however much we May talk ourselves into believing that it is the desirable condition. Bush cover is the fundamental requirement of this country and everything pos sible must be done to prevent fur ther deterioration. Rabbits and in mini bogeys and it is time we took a realistic View and recognise the sheep As the problem animal permanent damage is being done to a very Large area of Pas toral country and unless definite Steps Are taken to allow this coun try to recover after the drought Breaks much further damage will certainly occur limitation of Stock is the Only thing that offers any Hope. There is stall a lot to be Learned about the Flora of this country and it is impossible to assess sheep carrying capacity we can Only guess. It is certain however that permanent cover is becoming less dense and with this As our criterion of safety after making allowances for the present drought a reorientation of our ideas on carrying capacity in this country is steadily. In the North East in self they vary considerably. W have found for example that tii further South we have come the better they Are. Grass Nat Eho Hoji today coming Down from manna huh through pans ram Ltee Tiverton Manus a. Uldale Sturt Val faraway Hills and Braemar. ? were in an area which has suffer with one exception very few Losse some of these stations in fac have scarcely lost a sheep throng drought though their numbers at Down by two thirds or More o what they normally carry. The Anunda watercourse is still feed ing reasonably fat Stock on tee Tulpa Weed end atty Bush or Del Lon Bush As it is sometimes Caw but this is the rare except uni which Only serves to emphasise the cruel condition into which so mud other country has fallen in the a 12 months. What stands out with such con spice Rusness is that drought an erosion Are causing greatest have in country which has been Struppe of its natural Salt and Blue bus cover. The ravage is ominous widespread. It is the acc Mida Uon of years of unwise stocking c ignorance and misplaced Confidence. Many pasta rusts. It i Clear have lulled themselves int a sense of false Security by the re dance they have been Able to place Over a succession of Good years ii the grasses and herbage that Tebei country has been Able to grow t place of the vanished Bush cover there have been instances know of owners who have actually hastened the disappearance of Salt an Blue Bush so that room might b made for annual grasses. Two years of drought have exposed the falsity at this Trust country which in a Good year i covered with grass and herbage i now Barren and worthless and uncovered to the winds. Without it Bush cover it has no Protection and the Fine dust rises from it ii Clouds. The Only country which is not blowing is that which Sta retains its Bush. True much a the Bush has withered under the drought or become so Heavil coated Virji dust that Stock Wil not touch it. But it is a Reserve that remains for Stock and sol alike Mast Pras Arva Bash there is no Way out of the plight into which this Conn try has fallen except by the preservation of the Bush Tea it still retains. It is obvious that All policy must be directed to that end. One hears i commonly said even by pastoral site who have suffered most tha the breaking of the drought Wil see an end of the Public alarm Ove the erosion menace. A Rood Rale they say. Will transform this coun try. This last is certainly True but the dancer will not have Dis appeared. The drought will Leav its scar.
