Yarra Glen. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.)

Football. --------NM? BOURKE EVELYN ASSOCIATION. Epping v. Hurstbridge. By True Blue. Epping were athome to Hurstbridge on Saturday' last. The ground was firm, but pools of water lay here and there, and as players slipped and fell they provided amusement for the spectators, who had the best of the deal looking on. Epping won the toss, and made first use of the wind, which was slightly across the ground. They made the pace, and handled the ball better than their op potidfs. The visitors were not in it up ?'o half-time, when Epping had a lead of 3 goals 2 behinds to 1 behind. Hayes, Willis, Murphy, and Dea (2 goals) showed out as best on the ground, while Under wood, Murphy, Howard and Verso were doing well for Hurstbridge. On the bounce Epping were again dominant. Young was now playing a splendid game following for the home team, his dash and kicking being the best. 'Wet as the ground and ball were, he ran and bounced much to the delight of his followers, He was like a stone wall on ...

ARBOR DAY. Arbor Day was observed at the Yarra Glen school on Wednesday, 5th inst. A space of ground had been fenced off by the school committee in the new part of the school ground, and a number of trees had been obtained. It had been arranged to entertain the children with the festivi ties general to the day, hut the recent death of the late correspondent of the committee (Mr C. G. Rhimes) caused all such celebrations to be laid aside. The work of planting the trees was carried out by a working party composed of teachers, committee and scholars, and then all dispersed quietly.

Correspondence. COTTLES'S GULLY—CHADD'S GULLY ROAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 July 1922
Correspondence, COTTLES'S GULLY-CHADD'S GULLY .ROAD. TO THE EDITOR O THE ADVERTISER SIR,-Evidently-by a printer's error your issue this week represepts me as stating that the route I support " iould be patrotnised by 12 to I as against the route wanted by Mr Mann." What I stated was that the route I supported (No I route) gave a road to 12 additional ratepayers and omitted one rate payer only who was on the route supported by Mr Mann (No 2 route). This ratepayer will suffer, no hardship as he is on a good road on which much Council money has already been spent. I may mention that both routes pass my property, as Strathetwen cannot be reached otherwise, unless perhapy by a flying machine. As to "one parts (evidently my own) getting all the plums," it would be interesting to know whether it was 3lr, Mann's bad luck or the finger of Providence pointing a warning, that Mr Mann should have been waiting in the Council Chamber on Monday last, and was compelled to listen while Cr White move...
COTTLE'S GULLY—STRATHEWEN ROAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 July 1922
CO'TTLE'S GULLY -STRATH EWEN ROA D. TO THE EDITOR. OF THE ADVERTISER. SIB,-In your issue of the 7th inst. Cr Hewitt is reported to have said ** The route he favored would be patronised by 12 to 1 as asainst the route wanted by Mr Mann." It would be interesting if Cr Hewitt would :et down in black and white his manner of arriving at this very doubtful conclusion. To those who have closely followed the above councillor's methods of dealing with public questions, his reported statement is not surprising. Speaking as one who has a sound knowledge of facts, and wishes to see the road go where it will give the best service, it will suffi.e for the moment to say Cr Hewitt's statement is a gross misrepre sentation. It would have read nearer the mark had he said :-The route I favor will put £12 to £E in my pocket on the many acres of unimproved land I hold in idleness as against the route wanted by Mr Maun and a huge majority of ratepayers. Expecting much trick logic of the usual type, and t...

The Price of Sugar. MR. EVERARD'S OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 July 1922
The Price of Sugar, IMR. EVERARD'S OPINION. - p A conference was commenced at Lilydale g on Monday of the berry growers' section of c the Fruitgroweas' Central Association. 2 M31rEverard, M.L.A., in opening the con- o ference, said the good understanding that n exi.ted between the Berry Growers' Asso- c ciation and the Housewives' Association had done a great deal in the way of arous- f, inig public feeling ; no doubt they might t expect to accomplish much more in the r way of solid advantages. Already the agi- f tation was helping the grower to get a fair price for his commodity, and the con surmer to get fruit more cheaply and in a d fresher condition. The country Liberals o ani the Farmers' Union. differed on only d a f.ew points; but they agreed on this- t that they wanted to get for the producer j a fair price for his produce. At, the recent deputation of the country Liberals to the Premier, the first matter mentioned was the price of sugar. Members knew what the Premier would ...

THE ^ftrtinu rmicUo*fttte ea. ltJres , llurtijer S AND ianttld (riOchT WaUeB ,Nduvocate Published Evey'rFriday Afternaon ' i U 14: 1922. HOME LIFE. EVERYONE knows the song ' Home Sweet Home,"'-?bt, sad to relate, it does not convey as much as it did 15 or 20 years ago, for the simple reason that in prop6rtion to pqpulation there are less homes now tffan ever, and people cannot love that which they do not possess. The temporary wave of socialism, as well as the shortage of houses, has compelled thousands of people to live in apart ments and flats, and lack of parental control and the ever-growing privi leges of the young man and woman have had a deletdrions effect, upon the nation. It is argued by a certain section that it does not matter, as the world is'to'becoiee communistic, and that all the houses anid land will be the propegty, of the people, the same as parks, . gardens and .city halls. To thifik that this will either solve the problem orgive consolation to any party, is a gre...
COMPULSION IN ARBITRATION. Unity In Industry Destroyed. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 July 1922
SCOMPULSION IN ARBITRATION. ", Unity In Industry Destroyed. While no fault *can be found with the objective of the Arbitration Court -the abolition of strikes-it cannot be ,claimed that Australia has yet found ;=ahy.reeUeitfrom =the menace of Indus triauI:drest -througii its elaborate and expensive maichinery. It must by now be :plain" to even its most enthusiastic supporters that the Arbitration Court is but a temporary expedient, and that we must look elsewhere for solutions to our industrial problems. The peculiar reasoning by which the Arbitration Court has been thrust upon us; has likened the "strike" to a kind of,. street disturbance. These breaches of the peace are no longer permitted, and offenders are promptly brought before our police courts and fittingly punished. Following this line of argument, the conclusion is obvious. An industrial tribunal was required with power to inflict punishment upon -those responsible fori Industrial distur bances. But only when the majority ...

A DANGEROUS HOLE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. SIR,-Through your columns, I wish to draw the attention of members of the Eltham Shire Council to a very dangerous hole-an abandoned mining shaft-on the side of the road leading to the Hurstbridge State school, and directly opposite Dorset House.
