Football DIAMOND VALLEY ASSOCIATION No Surprise Results PLAY IMPROVES [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 17 May 1940
Football DIAMOND VALLEY ASSOCIATION No Surprise Results PLAY IMPROVES SATURDAY'S matches resulted in the winners, of. the opening day repeating their performances, but in each instance on their. opponents' ground. Diamond Valley Juniors failed to show their true form in their match with Greensborough, whom they found much faster to the ball and more systematic as a team. The Eltham-Heidelberg clash was a niuch better game that the scores indicate, and the spectators at times were given some really clever football. The outstanding fea ture of this match from the Eltham point of view was the appearance of B. Hart, who had returned to the club from Northcote. Montmorency battled gamely against the stronger Epping side, which they found superior in all departments. TO-MORROW'S FIXTURES Eltham v Montmorency. Heidelberg .v D.V.

CORRESPONDENCE CRUELTY TO ANIMALS (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 17 May 1940
CORRESPONDENCE CRUELTY TO ANIMALS (To the Editor.) Sir,-Before anyone decides to keep a,cat or dog, he should count the cost and be prepared to give the animal the care and attention neces 'ary to maintain it in health and com fort. I write to protest against the practice of "dropping" unwanted cats, kittens and dogs in the coun try. Unfortunately, as the time of the dog tax draws near, the dog, who perhaps has had a home for some months, miay be turned adrift. Cats too, are left in paddocks or elsewhere to fend for themselves. People mov ing away will leave cats and dogs Le hind with no thought of their wants. May I point out that even should the abanrdoned animals find food, which is doubtful) cruel traps, guns, and poison abound, and it is quite a com mo: thing for cats, dogs and birds to be caught in these inhumane traps. Only last week a baby kitten of about five' weeks was left in this manner. The faithfulness of these animals to us, contrasted with our treatment of them, may ...
