24: February 24 is Polling Day.
Collection code: Artworks. Authorised by W.J Whalan, President, I.G. Lancaster, General Secretary, N.S.W Teachers Federation.- Information from base of poster. Text on poster reads: 'February 24 is Polling Day. You know your school needs. Be certain your local candidates also know. Visit them. Write to them. Send a telegram. Ask about our Education Commission. Talk about more teachers and longer training. Ask for Victorian trainee allowances. Show them disappointed, frustrated students who want scholarships they can't get. Ask for at least the same number in training as in Victoria. Demand their support for a National Enquiry into Education, and Federal Emergency Grants for the States. Yes, you will be doing something for yourself. And your working conditions. And the pupils at your school. And class sizes and accommodation. Be selfish and help everybody.' Poster features a large black '24' on a purple background. Poster refers to the 1968 State Election in New South Wales.
