There must be some under lying cause in the conditions that produce misery penury and common want on the one hand and laziness and affluence on the other or. Semple said in the course of his address. I bring you fraternal Greet Ings and the very Best wishes of the government of new Zea land and the people it Tepee a sents. Your mayor has Caid that there should be closer re j lation ship Between Australia and new zealand. So there should be. The new zealand government is anxious and ready at any time As i told the prime minister at Canberra to discuss the possibilities of wiping out stupid Tariff barriers Between Australia and new Zea land. We want australian fruit in new zealand As much As you can Send us but we want you to take our potatoes. Australia says we Don t want your potatoes they Are diseased so we May Traat Portr four to is ? diseased. Laughter. We should certainly get together and give each other the Best service pos sible or. Semple said that the introduction of the 40 hour week in new zealand had not produced the economic cast Astro Phe that carping critics had predicted. It had resulted in greater service and a marked decrease in costs. All that the youth the real men needed was a Chance in life. Encouragement inspiration and a push on the journey of life and 99 men out of 100 would make Good. Thank you for the inspiring Welcome Back to this great town said or. Semple. When my colleagues were Good enough to suggest that i take a spell i immediately turned my thoughts to the land of my birth the Sun kissed Hills and valleys of Australia. Or. Big Gers said said i was a wild Man in my youth. There was none Wilder. The wild boy if he has strength and courage generally i ets somewhere. Came to meet old pals. I Felt i would like to come Back to Australia and meet the pals of the years that have slip Ped into the past and if time permitted to indulge in some reminiscences. I am sorry that my time will not permit me that great pleasure. Many of my old friends have gone. In Wes Tern Australia Flwler cent of my old work mates Are dead Pic twins of an unhealthy and Dang be just Industry in which they had to carry put laborious tasks in order to squeeze out of society & a rust far themselves. I have paid and the new zealand press has taken me up wrongly that i should have been dead by All tiie a was it the game. Had not tithe joiners taken me out of the pits and set me to organise and to Flag Hartor them i would have been dead. Men died Early and became ? prematurely old because of the t f Oul of additions form it ? proceeding. Or. Semple said that the Effew i zealand Ign oven Lent was not composed of us Perr Meni. O they were just Ord Ary men but they had bad some experience Fly Tite a Kiwi a a Enfield of Industry has free n wh6bt Wilbour University 4nd Rte to pcs we Baste received As we have been t de wily mily Ion the Ocean to give service of a lasting Char Acter to the people that we have the Honor to represent we Are men who have come from the Industrial Fields from the work shops and factories and we feel this knowledge will be helpful because in these changing times every problem is a practical problem. The men who have practical experience to Back up then studies Are in a better position to do the Job than those who Only have a superficial knowledge or. Semple declared. Should know their Job politicians should know their Job said or. Semple if they did not know their Job they should not be in parliament. A politician should be. Able to stand up to the third degree he should be Able to stand us to i the examination of his policy by any tribunal or meeting. It was easy to look on it was not no easy to do the Job. The average Man wants to know Why you do not get on with the Job and revolutionise the world in 24 hours. We Are not going to Al Low ourselves to be stampeded by any Section of the Community the minister added. I suppose you have Here As we have in new zealand the communist element that wants to wreck everything. We take no. Notice of them the communists or. Semple said had tried to get into the Public works Camps in new Zea land and encourage men to loaf. I took them on at their Owin game and the Public works department to Day is As free of communists As a Frog is of Fea thers the minister declared. The minister then referred to the Reserve Bank and the Man ner in which it had provided cheap Money for the people to build Homes. His own depart ment of Public works was a re Lief depot when he took Over. There were 10,000 Young men Many with a College education working for a pittance. They had been shanghaied into slave Camps. I brought All these Young men in groups into my office he said. I Felt that then moral Fibre had been sapped because they had legally been made out casts. I told them to forget the past and to remember they had a future and that then Success depended upon the will to make Good. I was Aristeus to put them on the first rung of the social ladder. I did so and Only one per cent has let me Down. Complete answer to critics. They were put on to constructive work at �1 a Day. Thuiy were originally receiving 10/ a week. The government gave them a 40-hour week and a fortnight s holidays at full pay. But they had to step on it. We have no room for loaf results had been beyond All expectations and have provided a Complete answer to the carping critics who foretold economic disaster and chaos if the men were Given a Shorter week and better conditions. The Cost of Public works bad been reduced tremendously. As an instance on the construction of a viaduct 360 feet High the Engineer s estimate was �23,000, and the period for completion nine months. The work was completed in seven months at a. Cost of �13,000. This demonstrates to you that if you give the real Man the australian born or new zealand bom Man the Chance to live a life Worth while give him Hope inspiration and a push on the to Urafay of life he win make Good. When they Tell you that men will no work when you Roa Kethe conditions Good do not believe it it is false. ? i am glad to have met you and. I thank you for ypurslnceee5 Welcome. I am proud of my Ai . The trials and Mibu sabans of a Humble Shpige. Lete sied me to put my bade Sun and to fight against social inequalities and exploitation. As a government we Hope and rust that anything we do will be an inspiration to the labour movement of Australia. We Are the servants of the people.

The misfortune to lose Mccal Lum shortly after the kick Iffland were left with Only 12 men for the remainder of the game. Mccallum was ordered off by referee Lewis following a souffle near Cessnock s line. The general opinion was that the ref. Was a bit severe on Mccallum.
