National Library of Australia new Cabinet in Bulgaria Hitler puppet As Premier Aap and our special representative London june 1. Berlin radio says that a new Cabi net has been formed in Bulgaria. With Ivan Bagranoff As prime minister. He was minister of Agri culture in a former government. Reuter states that Bagranoff is one of the most pro Axis of bul Garia s politicians. He visited hit Ler and Mussolini in 1941, and re signed from the ministry of Agri culture soon afterwards when Cabinet rejected his proposals for the Reform of the National Economy on fascist lines. The new bulgarian Cabinet headed by Barianos is another Hitler puppet government. The German overseas Agency describes it As a Cabinet of the Only previous minister retained is the War minister Gen. Russeff. The formation of the new Cabi net definitely challenges the soviet whose ultimatum demanding the Severance of the German and Bui i Garian Alliance led to the downfall of the Bojiloff government. J Russia in recent weeks has re \ heatedly warned Bulgaria of the danger of becoming Hitler s tool. The Berne correspondent of the daily Telegraph says that the Regency committee has accepted Hitler s ultimatum that the Ger mans should take Over the Leader ship of the bulgarian army. The capitulation is said to have been made to avoid the occupation of the country on lines similar to those in Hungary. Gen. Sonito Lori and Gen. Lukas who Are sym pathetic to Russia have been Dis missed and Are believed to have been gabled. The Ankara correspondent of the daily Telegraph says that the purging of bulgarian army officers and indifferent elements has already begun. Twenty one High officers have fled to Turkey. Unrest in the army accounts for the appointment of Gen. Trifunoff As chief of staff. His ruthlessness and cruelty will be remembered for generations in Serbia where he commanded the bulgarian army or occupation. His crimes included wholesale massacres in serbian villages. Clearing land for Soldier settlement suggestion for use of pow labor the Adelaide Branch Secretary of the australian workers Union or. C. R. Cameron has written to the minister for labor or. Hollo Way suggesting that prisoners of War instead of being allowed to be used As cheap labor in jobs covered by a Union award should be placed on work Clearing land in preparation for Soldier settlement after the War. In the letter to the minister. Or. Cameron said that the employment of prisoners of War on Dairy farms in the South East was causing considerable resentment. Land owners who had sons away fighting naturally refused to employ Pri Soner of War labor and they re rented the fact that neighbors without the same interest in the War. Were permitted to obtain labor at �1 a week while they were pay ing australians the full award rates. Workers feared the effects of the encouragement Given to employ cheap labor and employees at cheese and butter factories in the South East were talking of Refus ing to handle the products from farms employing pow labor. Or. Cameron added we con Sider that there Are plenty of men in the army who could be released to Tarry on this work. If. However it is found that sufficient releases Are not available the landowners employing pow labor should be compelled to pay to the govern ment the difference Between the award rate and the agreed pow rate. This would present one Dairy Fanner from obtaining an unfair advantage Over or. Cameron claimed that there were plenty of opportunities for the government usefully to employ pow labor. Far instance hundreds of thousands of acres of Rood South East land could be acquired and cleared in readiness for Soldier settlement. By special arrangement the world services of Benter s.

I manpower Appeal court reserves judgment Melbourne june 2. Judgment was reserved by the full High court today in the a peal by the Commonwealth against the decision of the new full court which de i cleared that regulation 15 of he National Security Regula a tons giving the manpower direct i orate Power to direct persons to private employment was invalid. Or. G. E. Berwick. Pc. On behalf of the respondents said that thei object of the regulation was to make provision for persons to place themselves at the disposal of the i Commonwealth for defence Pur a j poses. The regulation had no limit Las to age or capacity or even Resi Dence. It applied to persons the her they were already employed or not. It was so wide As to include i civil servants doing purely administrative functions. The chief Justice sir John Latham your criticism is that i the regulation May be Good if it is limited to persons Over a. Certain age. How can the court apply that or. Barwick the regulation was n substance a provision for the in to hailing of manpower into the defence channels of the common wealth. It was an Endeavor to control All employment in Short to redistribute labor throughout the Community. It was based on some theory that by readjusting labor you could make a More efficient Community and so in some Way Aid the War Effort. The regulation failed because it had no specific connection with defence. It aimed at some social Experiment to Ren Der the Community More efficient. That was not sufficiently connected with defence to leave the regulation within the defence Power of the Commonwealth. No one would complain of the marshalling of manpower for defence purposes but the control of All employment was another matter. To take control of All employment went beyond the defence Power of the common wealth. Power of regulation the regulation gave Power to the executive to declare protected undertakings for War purposes and the executive could then divert manpower into those industries ? added or. Barwick. That was in tirely different from the present scheme. It was not Correct to say that if the regulation was declared invalid it would destroy the Power of the executive to control Man Power for defence purposes. Power to the executive to control Man Power for defence purposes might even cover the filling of vacancies in employment. Or. Justice Starke you say that the regulation cannot go ? beyond what is essential for de Fence purposes. What do you say. Is the limit for defence purposes or. Barwick it cannot regulate labor that has nothing to do with defence. It is Plain that regulation 1115 deals with labor which has not specific connection with defence. For that reason the regulation is invalid and the Appeal should fail. In reply or. Fullagar. . For the Commonwealth said that the question of age or capacity in the regulation was one which very 1 properly should be left to the Dis -1 creation of the executive. The Thole basis of the regulations was Short -1 age of manpower for High Priori ties and therefore it gave Power Ito reorganise labor in the Community to fill those gaps caused by ? the taking of labor for high1 1 priority. He therefore submitted 1 that the Appeal should be allowed. Red shield War services Appeal serving a aah s at a far Distant Sta Tion. Capt. Olga Forster.

Fat in butter Cream and ice Cream were essential to both the health and morale of the popu lation and unless this was provided in adequate quantities there would be an Alan inc effect on the health of the nation impaired efficiency among workers an serious outbursts against the govern-1 ment or. Roseby continued so far As be knew apart from the one enquiry some years ago in connection with the Basic wage there had been no proper Survey of the minimum nutritional requirements of the people. It was quite useless to compare the ration in Britain with that in Australia because for years British people had been accustomed to supple ment butter supplies with Marga Rine oils and other sources of fat not used in this country. Butter position in Britain Melbourne june 2. When asked to comment on the statement made today that Britain could usually import butter from the United states and Canada out Side the season of flush Milt production in Australia or. Rani re Amery Leader of tiie United King Dom food Mission to Australia and new zealand said that throughout the War Britain had not imported any butter from the United states which now reserved practically the whole of the exportable surplus of butter for Russia. So far As Canada is he added the Canadian govern ment has just announced a temporary Cut in the Canadian butter ration from 8 of. To 6 of. To accumulate a Winter Reserve. Prom this it seems that there can be no exportable surplus of butter irom Canada at present. In an Endeavor to maintain the civilian ration Britain has already had considerably to reduce the sup ply of butter to her own forces. This position has Arisen owing to the heavy decline in exports of butter from both Australia and new zealand below pre War this decline As is Well known is Idue in part to the necessity fori feeding the forces based upon australian and new zealand but unfortunately the munition workers coalmines shipwrights and so on in Britain cannot be fed upon explanations. They require their 2 of. Of butter actually on their Brown i bread together with their i Jib. Of meat and 2 of. Of cheese to enable them to maintain the pro induction needed to reinforce the terrific struggles ahead of the coun try during 1944." five mines Idle Over butter request for exemption from Cut Sydney june 2. Refusal to work As a protest against the new Cut in the butter rationing caused stoppages at five of the ten Northern mines Idle to Day. The other five were Idle for other reasons. The stoppages involved 4200 men. The Central executive of the miners federation today sent a. Letter to the acting prime minis Ter ill. Horde requesting the government urgently to recon-1 Sider reducing butter rationing Toi mine workers from 8 of. To 6 of. It was stated that there were no canteens in mines similar to those which existed in Many factories where employees could obtain Cut lunches and other foods for lunch nor were miners Able to have their lunches at shops or to obtain Cut lunches from shops such As City workers were Able to do. The letter expressed the View that the present Cut should not apply to any mine worker or any other Industrial employee placed in a similar position. Or. James up who is Liaison officer Between the Federal government and the Coal Industry said that the strikers were hold ing a gun at the government s problems of rationing All not Well with system from our special correspondent Canberra june 2. Developments of the last week Are building up a conviction in Many Well informed quarters in Canberra that All is not Well with the rationing system which has slowly developed Over the past two years. That the clothing rationing cys tem has not provided that Auto Matic and even handed distribution of available goods which m promised when the plan was first introduced seems to be suggested by the fact that a Federal ends ii into a supplementary rationing sys tem introduced by traders by Way of a daily sates quota Bas become necessary. An emergency Cut of 2s pm. In the butter ration Bas sharply focused attention upon complaints against the incidence it food rationing which of try they i from such responsible and presumably disinterested authorities As the National health Council and the British medical association Are causing a Good Deal of uneasiness in ministerial circles. Whatever charges May be made against the government for faults in the handling of manpower re sources it would be unfair and even ridiculous to blame the Bitinis iry for the necessity for cutting the butter ration. This step has been made necessary by serious bus fires in. Victoria and abnormal drought conditions in most other butter producing areas. Commitments to Britain have contributed practically nothing to the decision because Australia provides Little butter for Britain in the Winter months and her place As a supplier is taken by North America. Possibly additional Man Power released to the Dairy Industry earlier May have produced a Little More butter but it certainly could have done Little More than taper off the severity of the production slump which Mimi conditions have created.
