Late Mr. E C. Glaetzer, Nuri.,

Came Out When 27 to Reach
Success in Land He Praised
Mr. Eduard Carl Glaetzer, 75. of
Nuriootpa, whose death on July 14 was
briefly reported last issue, had been a
resident of S.A. for nearly 49 years. He
was tt man of bright mentality, and
cheerfully told his life story for these
columns some years ago. He was horn
on October 3, 1861, at Driesen, Bran
denburg, Germany; which also was the
home town of Mrs. Glaetzer (nee Miss
Anna Marie Rosengarten), who sur-
vives. Mr. Glaetzer became a carpen
ter, but contended that some of liis
happiest years were three spent in the
German army, when he rose to the
rank of sergeant of a Brandenburg in
fantry regiment.
The German government of those
days made every effort to encourage
militarism, he once said; long service
in the army being a qualification for
civil service positions. A┬╗policcinun,
for instance, had first to have 12 years
army training, whilst a place in the
railways could be obtained after nine
years military service.
Each army man in those days got
a 6 lb. loaf of rye bread every four
days, together with a small allowance
of meat and fresh coffee each morn
ing. Pay was threepence a day. out
of which the soldier had to pay for
his washing and boot polish.
Working later in an implement fac
tory, Mr. Glaetzer said he got 12/-
for his 60-hour week; ordinary work-
ers getting 9/-. Mrs. Glaetzer was in
domestic service for a wage of 18/-
a year, less deductions for outfits and
other incidentals. On the other hand
a pair of strong boots cost 3/-, and
potatoes were 3d. per cwt.
The couple were married in their
home town on April 17, 1885. Mr.
Glaetzer's sister (Mrs. Below) had sett-
led in Australia, and largely on her
very favourable accounts, tiie couple
left Germany on October 3, 1888, in
the Nord-Deutscher Lloyd steamer
"Hapsburg." Years later, he said the
decision to emigrate had proved a very
fortunate one, for Australia was a land
of glorious opportunity, for those un-
afraid to work.
On arrival, Mr. Glaetzer followed
his trade at Nuriootpa, receiving then
30/- a week. He had at various times
been associated with Mr. B. Frey tag,
the late Herm. Juncken, Mr. J. H.
Traeger, the late J. H. Keuper (as a
cooper), and the late Mr. H. Krieg,
who then had the brickyards. Surviv-
ing with Mrs. Glaetzer are Messrs Otto
(West Parkside), Max (Pt. Adelaide),
Ern. (Watervale), Will (Clare), Dick
(Cheltenham), Mrs. L. Burgess (Kap-
unda), Mrs. J. Kelly (Parkside) and
Miss Amanda Glaetzer (Nuriootpa).
There are thirty grandchildren and a
The funeral took place in Nuriootpa
Cemetery on July 15, Rev. R. Held
officiating. The bearers were Messrs.
O. J. Krieg, E. Lange, H. Falkenberg,
