Dr. Arthur Goode

Dr. Arthur Goode, who died in Rose mount military hospital, Brisbane, on April 24, was a son of the late Thomas Goode and the late Margaret Goode. and was born at Canowie Station, of which his father was manager for 35 years. He was educated at Glenelg Grammar School and was a graduate of Adelaide University. After some years spent at Terowie, Dr. Goode re-

moved to Peterborough and practised   there until he enlisted for active ser- vice with the A.I.F. in 1915. He was in Egypt for a few months, and then was sent to England as medical officer of a transport, and was then appointed medical officer at Codford, a training camp on Salisbury Plain. This position he retained until he left for France, where he was attached to the hospital at Abbeville. A severe illness next year necessitated his return to Eng- land, and on recovery he was ap- pointed as one of the medical officers at Horseferry road, many diggers pass- ing through his hands during the time he was there, which extended until after the Armistice. Returning to South Australia he resumed practice at Peterborough and took a promi- nent part in the effort which resulted in the erection of the fine Soldiers' Memorial Hospital in that town. How ever, active service had seriously af- fected his health, and he found it necessary to go to the milder climate of Queensland some few years ago, when he purchased a property at Cleveland. In his University days Dr. Goode was a fine runner, and for some years was a prominent player in the South Adelaide Football Club. In late years his chief recreations were gardening and music. Dr. Goode did not marry, but is survived, by five bro- thers: — A. P., of Port Pirie; Clarence. Henley Beach; Cecil H., Wayville: T.

M. and M. C. of Queensland; and four sisters, Mrs. N. A. Smith, Henley Beach; Mrs. F. Green, Brisbane; Mrs. R. K. Jenkins, Wirraminna station, and Mrs. W. F. Simmons, Bexley, N.S.W. The late Mrs. Crawford Vaughan was also a sister.
