CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. (To the Edtior.) Sir,-I am surprised that a minister of religion should advocate the con tinuance of a barbarous system of punishment. His statement that "crime will not be checked by failing to execute the penalty when guilt is incurred" is beside the point. No one. would advocate the abolition of a penalty for a crime-particularly for murder-but the question is: what should the penalty be-another mur der? I think not. Public opinion is aghast at these barbarous hangings. According to reports, the victim of justice's vengeance a few weeks ago suffered a slow death 'by. strangula tion, the hangman's formula appar ently being at fault. , Crime did not increase in Englaniid' when the death penalty was abolished for many trifling offences. Murder in the majority of cases is a crime committed in a fit of passion, the perpetrators not worrying about the penalty. We should act humanely, even with criminals.-Yours etc.. DEMOCRAT.
HASTINGS-TYABB v. PEARCEDALE [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
HASTINGS-TYABB v. PEARCEDALE The attendance at the Hastings ground was very poor, no doubt:owing to the greater attraction at Frankston. However, the) game needs little de scription as it proved very one-sided. The. giants of the 'visiting team were too strong for the midgets of the home, side, but neverthelessi they never let up and played for the love of the game. It is to these boys we look forward in future years, to build up A Grade teams. We must con gratulate them for their pluck nnd de termination to carry on, and play the game. The visitors were strongly repre sented, 'but the home team was very weak, owing to several players not being evailable at present. When all ,players are available the team will be much stronger and will no doubt give a better account of themselves in future matches. 'Final scores were: Pearcedale, 17.34;, Hastings-Tyabb 2.7. The teams were:-Pearcedale: 'S. Lord (capt.), B. Hassett, E. Judd, G. Damon, J.. Sharman, H. Smith, .A. White, J. Lewis, R. Ha...
(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
(To the Editor.) Sir,-May I add a little to the con tribution of your correspondent, the Rev. McEwen, regarding capital pun ishment. As one who is against capi tal punishment for any crime, I may, perhaps, be allowed to disagree with the reverend gentleman's Biblical in` teroretation of this much-debated ecol nomic problem. My reading og .tli Scripture has always had the effect on me of believing that the advent of our Savior on' this planet was to transform the old vengeful Mosaic idea of so-called justice into the ,policy of love, tolerance and understanding.. Surely the reverend gentleman does not- (esecially having regard to his chosen profession) really believe:tbat the basis of, present-day punishment, should still stagnate in the realms of the land, merciless Jehovah of. Moses. God is love, said Christ; and no mat ter how brutal the Old Testament punishments were, we must keep in mind that Moses had a very rough, wild and difficult army to handle, The only laws they understoo...
B GRADE. FRANKSTON v. DROMANA. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
B GRADE. FRANKStTON v. DROMANA. Frankiston took the field without the services of Hart and Gooda, who, were replaced; by Scarce and Rich ards. At the close of the first quarter Frankston led" by two goals, which wivs minly due to the breezy football by 'J. Gaylor on the wing.' Until in jured in the last quarter this 'player was always prominent. Bert Aust, who has played for practically every -team on the Penin suit, showed out in the Dromana team and proved that he can still hold-his own with the younger players. Frankston opened the second quar ter with two goals in quick succession by K. Flynn. If this player was given .more scope on the forward line his bag would show a corresponding in crease. Umpire Osborne had charge of the match and gave a fair display of um piring. Frankston was still keeping in the lead., Guy, captain of Dromana,-,was playing a·true skipper's part in&lt; the centre, and was easily the bestUfor his side. Both Jack and Ray Benson were -playing sterli...
Let's Write a Letter TO THE CIVIC FATHERS OF THIS MUNCIPALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
Let's Write a Letter oOo TO THE CIVIC FATHERS OF THIS'MUNCIPALITY. Honorary and Abused Sirs,--it seems that the time is long overdue' for some straight talking, and we will be surprised beyond measure if the sentiments that are in our hearts are not also engraven in yours. For almost ten years now a large section of this community of a free democracy has been trying to exist on a mere pittance. The big majority of this section lost their jobs during the depression, and for many reasons have neven been able to regain their place in industry. Increasing years have disqualified many, general debility due to the .need for nutritious foods, loss of ambition owing to environment, and the; questionable practice of compelling-mon to work on public works for a wage much below the accepted standard minimum wage have all contributed to the position as it exists to-day, when, with the depression over and a supposed era of prosperity prevailing, there are 24,000 men and women out 'of.work in Vic...
SEAFORD V. MORNINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
SEAFORD v. MORNINGTON. This game resulted in a win for Mornington, but it was not a very great spectacle, being scrambly owing to players not having had sufficient practice with the new' holding-the-ball rule. Mornington has improved a great deal this year, and if they can pro duce the same form away from home they will be a force to be reckoned with. Seaford-Carrum tried out several new players, and the most promising were Anderson and Davidge. Given time to settle down, they will de velop into quite a good combination. Final scores: Mornington, 18.25; Sea ford-Carrum, 7.24. Best ,players, for Mornington were Golds, Hedrick, Feltham, Read, Bee croft and Duncan. Seaford-Carruni was best served by O. Davies (best on ground), R. Aik, D. Davies, R. Gunn and R. Darroch.
Your Safety Valve TRAIN SERVICE CRITICISED. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
Your Safety Valve A f ?nn.. .. TRAIN SERVICE CRITICISED. (To the Editor.) Sir,-In common with all outer suburban travellers I welcomed the recent reduction in periodical tickets by the Riailway Department. It was hoped that this move would tend to bring new families to the outer suburbs. However, one important aspect of the ,problem has apparently escaped official notice. I refer to actual service provided 'by the rail ways. Frankly, I fail to see how the congestion in the industrial districts will be removed until the frequency of the service is increased, and the time spent in travelling to the outer suburbs is reduced. Recently, the Commosissioners wisely introduced several express trains on this line, and the move met with great appro val from the large numbers of train travellers. However. I see no rehson, why the number of these express trains should riot be greatly increased. It is ridiculous that any train travel ling to Miordialloc, Carrum or Frank ston should stop at all s...

WHO WANTS PEACE? (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
WHO WANTS PEACE? (To the Editor.) Sir,--May I express appreciation of the sound common sense of last week's article under What the Churches are Saying. It shows how false is the assertion that religion's only benefit is hereafter. The Rev. A. J. Porter's article truly represents the Christian Church in saying that peace is to be had just as soon as we want it enough to pay .the price. I thank him also for so clearly stat ing the inescapable alternatives: 'our young people must pay the price of peace or the price of war. Neither Hitler nor Chamberlain can decide the future. Every one of us who is not an active peacemaker is helping the drift to war. Mr Porter's article tells what the churches 'believe is the only sure way to peace. I understand that the writers of these articles invite criticism, especially constructive cri ticism. Thera is no question which more concerns our everyday welfare than whether we shall have war or peace. The churches say that unless, people, and especiall...

Grouches Unlimited [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
Grouches Unlimited Station 3UZ will not mind us pirating the title of their very good session in the interests of local shopkeepers, who have a grouch. Their grouch.is that local people-2or, rather, many of-them--do most of their shopping in the big departmental stores in the city instead of support ing 'local industry. You have a good shopping centre. If you don't believe us, make a special trip down to your main street, and instead of hurrying to take the "off-pedk" train, as is your wont, begin at the first shop and closely inspect every window in the street. We are prepared to stand or fall by your judgment; so are the local business ,people. All your needs, with the exceptions of, perhaps, motor cars and ships' anchors-and who wants the latter ?-can be bought just around your corner. Quality of goods supplied is equal to the city, and the prices are at least comparable and, in fact, in many instances cheaper than stores whose overhead is enormous. Surely you are more interested...
