Mt Isa beer strike

Unable to Beer It

Mount ISA, Saturday,

The 12-months-old beer strike is over, but beer is still one shilling a pot, which means that for 12 dusty, dreary months Mount Isa has thirsted in vain. But to-day Mount Isa is intent on celebrating last Christmas in fitting manner, for the town still has vivid memory of a cheerless day nine months ago, when nothing but tepid water assuaged a burning thirst.
