Mr FALSTEIN - I ask the Minister for the Army whether one Penton, the editor of the DailyTelegraph, recently indicated to the Minister that he desired to join the Australian Imperial Force, and whether, when he was informed that special arrangements had been made for him to be drafted to a commando unit, he hastily declined the invitation? Is Penton of military age? Could not his services be better utilized in the fighting services than in making a lecture tour of the United States of America?
