Monday, March 5, 1934

Walked to school by myself. In the evening Ruth Ray and Pauline came down. Played the Victrola. Danced.

Flag of the "Dominion of Westralia" as proposed in 1934

The government of West Australia sent a petition to King George V requesting
legislation which would allow Western Australia to secede from Australia. The British
 Parliament refused to consider the petition, however, without the approval of the
Australian Parliament in Canberra. Eventually this secession movement lost support
and by 1938 had ceased to exist. (It was revivied in 1974, however.)
