Death of
Mr. R. J. H. Moses

AUSTRALIAN journalism suffered a severe loss in the death last week of Mr. R. J. H. Moses ("Mo"), who, prior to joining the new Sydney Daily Telegraph as Consultant Editor, spent several months with The Australian Women's Weekly.
The late Mr. Moses was a newspaperman of remarkable versatility, but he was best known as a humorist. His letters from the Prince of Wales to his father, the late King George, when the present King was in Australia, brought him fame throughout the English-speak-ing world, and established him as one of Australia's finest laugh-makers.
This was no better demonstrated than when L. W. Lower was on leave recently.

___________________________________________________________

L. W. Lower's Tribute
There will be no more "Mo". Reg Moses is dead.
One could never be miserable when "Mo" was about. Now, as he would have said, "Things look different!"
There is only a matter of time and there will be more funny fellows, other great humorists ... but there was only one "Mo".
His death leaves a void.
L. W. Lower

_________________________________________________________________

During his absence "Mo" deputised for him, and his humorous articles "From the Lower Berth" provided a fine example of his adaptability.
The funeral, to the Northern Suburbs Crematorium last Saturday, was a fine tribute to his popularity. Headed by police motor cycle outriders, the cortege was one of the largest seen in Sydney for years, and was representative of journalism, Freemasonry (in which he was a Past Master), golf (he was a member of the Lakes and Manly clubs), the police, and business circles.
