WHAT IS THE POSITION OF THE PRAHRAN CLUB? [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 April 1914
WVHAT IS THE POSITION OF THE PRAIILiANi CLUB? In regard to a recent attack made on the Prahran Club by the bowling contributor who writes under the nom-de-plume of "Rover," I had ex pressed the intention, when the matter 'vas last dealt with in this column, to leave the matter in the hands or the club's president (Mr. J. Dunning), to take up on behalf of his club. But he seems to have taken unto himself the motto of "oyster," for although I and many other bowlers expected to read his side of the question, he has remained as mute as a sphinx. I have had it whispered to me by some one (to whom, by the way, it was also whispered), that Mr. Dunning endorses "Rover's" comments Mr Dunning has acted very'generously to wards the Prahran Club, and, as I have already pointed out, under his presidency the club has made good strides inl many ways, if not in actual howling. Bowlers were eagerly look ing for a statement from Mr. Dunning, but none has come to hand. If there is really internal stri...
Bowling. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 April 1914
Bowling. By BOWLER. A few matches of more or less im portance between different clubs is all that is to be recorded for the past few days. Within a very short space of time now bowls will be put away for the winter recess, and bowlers (without they take to playing football or hockey, a very doubtful possibility) will occupy their spare time in fight ing their games over again by word of mouth. It has been a good season taken all round, and there is no doubt about it that bowling is becoming one of the most popular of summer pastimes. The great inter-State carnival at Brisbane ended up last Saturday, and, as far as this State is concerned, everything went quite satisfactory. The indomitable L. Waxman, of Armadale, was skipper of the rink that won the single-rink champion ship, his comrades in arms being Smith, Stewart and Hotchin. In winning this, as well as the single-handed championship of Aus tralia, Waxman hlas proved his worth. Before he left for the banana State, Waxman was hea...
