Adelaide Advertiser (Newspaper) - March 13, 1945, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia another supreme Effort or. Curtin s loan Appeal to Home front unhappily the improved War situation has caused Many people in Australia to pull on the cloak of com Placenci and to regard the ultimate defeat of Japan As just a matter of time calling for no sustaining of past efforts or energetic prosecution of new tasks said or. Curtin night of chaily opening the third Victory loan of �100,000,000, in a National broadcast. Or. Curtin was supported by the Lender of the opposition or. Menzies and the Leader of the australian country party or. Fadden. The Call was to Australia unconditionally and frankly for another supreme Effort on the Home front so that the nation might persevere in the inflexible purpose upon which it was resolved the prime minister said. To any lessening of the War Effort he could think of no better answer than the words of Gen. Mac Arthur in a communique of Only a few weeks ago when he had found that the japanese grip on the Philippines had been broken. The general had said. We do not count anything done As Long As anything remains to be those words or. Curtin said might Well be our watchword against complacency slackening lying Down on the Job. And corrupt practices. �1$ millions a Day the prime minister said that it Cost �550,000 a Day to keep the australian army in the Field �340,000 a Day to keep the Raaf in the air 5?d a sep "00.000 a Day to keep the ban afloat. The reciprocal lend lease under which we supplied and serviced american forces Cost �300000 a Day. Those four items totalled More than a minion a Day. On top of that were such things As food production As Well As the Ordinary Normal expenditure necessary to maintain the life and activities of the nation. The tasks of Australia s fighting men in the three services would be come,fc5own the passing of time revealed them or. Curtin continued. To say much of what Par those men would play in the plans for tie defeat of the enemy would profit Only the enemy. But it was a grim business for our men. Here one hone front tie task was As nothing by comparison. Yet if there were any faltering the Job of the fighting men would become All the More arduous. Appealing for Strong Public support of the loan or. Curtin said that on Anmer Day there would gather representatives of 44 of the United nations around a Council table at san Francisco proudly with the name won for her by her fighting men and by the magnificent efforts of her civilian population Australia would take her place at that table. He asked that on that Day a Day imperishable in our memory the loan should be filled. They should give Australia a world wide advertise ment at san Francisco by an Over subscription before the dosing Date avoiding inflation or. Menzies said that the real purpose of the loan was to limit private expenditure which if in rest cited could easily Lead to inflation and disaster and to trans Fer private Money to the hands of the government which had the supreme duty of devoting it to the winning of the War. Pfar Dosica though it seemed the truth was that the less we de sired to spend upon ourselves and the More we entrusted to the government the More successfully would our Money retain its value. Every measure taken to avoid tie destruction of the value of Money by inflation was a measure taken for the Protection of the decent careful Independent Way of life of the Ordinary citizen. By Landing Money to the government and so reducing the amount they had in hand to spend they preserved not Only the National solvency but also the True value of the Money left or. Fadden said that War was a ready customer for everything that could be made or produced. Could we find in peacetime a Cus Tomer with As much Cash to spend As War if we could continuity of employment would be assured. Every Pound put into the loan would be Cash after the Wax and As Long As people could buy others would work. An investment in the loan was in the nature of an insurance Premium guaranteeing jobs Security and a desirable Liv ing Standard when the conflict was ended. In Australia �525 millions were held in savings Bank deposits alone or. Fadden continued. If each depositor decided to Contri Bute to the loan one fifth of tie i amount held in savings Banks the i loan could be oversubscribed in 24 hours and there would be a re Cord number of contributors.

Men Zies said will be passed. It is easy to pass Bills when there is a majority in both houses of Parlia ment. Australia is at present Liv ing under a government which in my opinion is More menacing to the future of Australia than any government the country has Ever or. Menzies said that the real Issue before the people of austra Lia was whether they wanted to live As free men or be ordered about like slaves. If anybody imagined that the British people had got where they were by allow ing themselves to be made to do As they were told they misread history. Australia was going Down the Slippery slope and whether like the Dadarene Swine they were to Rush into the ., depended on the determination of tie people. This business of the nation s credit he said is a delicate mat ter and the value of the people s Money is a delicate matter re Quiring knowledge and the government he added seemed to think that it could Best be handled by the treasurer for the time being and he in turn would be directed by the caucus. There was not to be fair Competition Between the Commonwealth and the trading Banks. Payment of taxation to begin with he went on the Commonwealth Bank does not pay taxation and its capital is found for it by the government. The trading Banks Are to be required to keep their Money in the Commonwealth Bank at a Low in Terest and then pay taxation on such limited profits As they can t the Bruce government 20 years ago quite rightly placed the Commonwealth Bank under a. Board but one Man the governor under the government s Bill is to have sole charge of the note Issue the savings Bank department the lands Branch and the housing Branch. One Man is to be the Dic Tator of hundreds of thousands of people in the country. This is a step which has not been taken by any other Central Bank in the world. Even the governor is to be under the control j of the treasurer and if there is disagreement on policy the Gover nor will have to obey the trea surer. The government will be Able to say the extent to which the note Issue should be increased if it wants Money for this that or some other when he left office the note Issue was �50.000.000.
