(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939

(To the Editor.) Sir,-Somehting has been chron icled as to Frankston councillors' boasts of progressiveness. When Frankston can boast of a modern town hall, new railway station build ings, and new court house, with facili ties equal to those of other towns smaller than Frankston, then (and not till then) can it be honestly claimed that the policy of Frankston council lors is progressive, in the interests of the district, and to the advantage' of ratepayers. The deplora'ble' condition of Frankston Mechanics' Hall, railway station offices and. buildings, to say nothing of no court house, is a stand ing disgrace to a so-called live-wire council. It certainly says- little in favor of the push and activity of the present representatives of the rate ipayers.-Yours etc., PROGRESSIVE. Frankston.

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939

(To the Editor.) | Sir,--Your campaign on behalf of the sustenance worker must receive the support of every citizen with, perhaps, the exception of that particu lar class that is ever interested in cheap labor, and unless we start at the real cause of this evil ive will find the sustenance worker a per manent feature in our crazy economic system. ;-Your appeal to the churches is well timed. Too long has the church sat with its hand folded, blind to the conditionxs that thousands of our peo ple are living in. WTilst families are living in a state of poverty, degrada tion, malnutrition and disease there has never been any organised effort 'by the church to alter their condition. SThose words, '"Blessed are the poor," must bring little consolation to those who can only look forward to a life on the dole on this earth, and al though. there are a good many men inside the church who are whole heartedly behind an alteration in our economic system, they are themselves victims of a system in...

Pt. Nepean Road Lighting A Public Menace [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939

Pt. Nepean Road Lighting A Public Menace The number of fatalities on Pt. Nepean road is startling, but to those motorists who are unfortunately forced to use the road at night the wonder is that the toll is not doubled. Thousands of pounds are spent on making good roads; why not complete the job and instal a system of light ing which would make them usable at night? We do not exaggerate in the slight est when we say that a motorist forced to drive on this road on a wet night takes his life in his hands. The writer drove over this roadway on Monday night last (a very wet night). Two nasty accidents ten years ago have taught him a lesson, and on occasions such as Monday last he exercises every reasonable caution. Reasonable caution on this occasion made a speed of 20-25 miles per hou'r necessary! The wet roalway, glaring headlights and a ludicrous system of public highway lighting made the drive anything but safe. The lighting of Pt. Nepean road should not be left to the councils. The...

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939

(To the Editor.) Sir,-Your earnest plea for the rights of the unemployed deserves hearty commendation and support. The first evidence that we desire world peace should be that we treat our fellow-citizens as brothers. The dole can never be justified except as a very temporary e.xpedient in an emergency, and immediately such an emergency happens each one of us should be "all out" to quickly end the "grievous wrong" done to the man who has no decent job. Yet we Australians -Have drifted on degrading our fellow citi zens, and increasing world strife, be cause some of us care nothing for another's woe, and some who care know not how best to help, and some unemployed neglect to help them selves. You ask the help of the churches. Some church people are still asleep on this question. Others are leading the way to 'better things. I found my five years work in Port Melbourne during the worst of the depression a very useful experience. The generos. ity of church people surprised me. In that t...

Your Safety Valve COUNCIL NEWS. -(To the Editor.) Sir,-Your very excellent example .of a grouch emboldens me to venture forth with my grouch. However, mine is not against the general public, but against the Standard itself for the paucity of information re the activi ties of the local council. For a long time past the reports of 'the council meetings have been gradu ally becoming less and less until the present issue, where we find altoge ther about three-quarters of an 18-inch column, composed of Council Brevi ties, i.e., building permits, tree plant ing, Gould street, Main street light ing,, sustenance, and an i ap?eal.ifir Federal assistance for shire roads. Contrasting this with the Standard of 10/12/24; which I have taken haphaz ard from a file, in which we find seven 24-inch columns of council .news, one wonders why" the change.

Footballers of the Past Memories of Champions MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939

Footballers of the Past ,M- Memories of Champions (By E.J.T.) MELBOURNE. The "lblly-legs" team of 1903 was 100 per cent. amateur. A player of great interest to Sandringham people was the star colt-Vin. Coutie, now the authorised newsagent at Sand ringham' who is working over time to meet -the demand for the News in that district. Vin. was a great player for a number of years with Melbourne. One of his many notable performances was registered against Geelong when he kicked eight goals on the Corio oval-a re cord performance in those days of difficult scoring. Others in the team were Anderson,1 Mills, Tout, Bremmer, Henderson, F.i Gardner, Strong,' Bowe; -Langley, Parken, Purse, J. C. Gardiner, Charlie - Over, Fry, Leith, Young, Sowden, Mc Lelland, Herring and MIoodie.
