Sporting Highlight WRESTLING? [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 18 August 1939
Sporting Highlight .oOe WRESTLING ? This is what T"he Ring,". the world's leading boxing and wrestling publication, has to say about this farce which passes under the name of wrestling: "Until the 'bad men' of wrestling, the rough and tough element, came into the spotlight, the type that has abandoned the orthodox style for the kicking, gouging, hair-pulling type of 'wrestling' that now seems the. vogue, the mat sport was one that aroused the admiration and the support of those who enjoy the employment of science in the display of athletic prowess. But all this is changed now. Only here and there does one find a scientific wrestler who works according to the rules of the game as set down hundreds of years ago. No longer do we see the masters deftly get out of one hold and, with equal .science, apply another while an admiring throng applauds. "Now it is the drop-kick, the hair-pull, the leg-twist, the flying tackle, the spine-rub, the eye-gouge and what not that arouses the most inte...

THE POLITICAL SPIRIT VERSUS THE SCIENTIFIC SPIRIT. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 18 August 1939
THE POLITICAL SPIRIT VERSUS THE. SCIENTIFIC SPIRIT. (To the Editor) Sir,-This is how your correspond ent, Mr R. G. Yeats, should have headed his letter in your issue of August 11, in which he eulogises the T.S.S.S.R. . Mr Chas. W. Wagstaff is correct ,when he says "Socialism is merely a sentli:ieutal dream." That is what it has 'developed into under the rule of Stalin. Unfortunately for the Russilmi peoples and Russia the self-interest of the few has triumphed over the .wants of 'he many. No system can function that disregards the protoplasim of so ciety-the individual human being. That is precisely what occurred in Russia, the system failed because of its contempt for the very human be ings who were to be saved by it. Inl the struggle to attain equality with the world, the human element was forgotten and the o'bject became the defeat of capitalism. . I will concede the point that Russia has made tremendous strides, both materially and educationally, but with what cost in human live...
COUNCIL DEBATE ON LIQUOR LICENCE At Frankston Show (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 18 August 1939
COUNCIL DEBATE ON LIQUOR LICENCE At Frankstori Show (To the Edtior) Sir,-Under the. above heading in the I'ssue of the Standard of August 11 appears the .following: "Cr Miles said it was time the wowser commu nity) woke up to the fact that the" re striction of drink made for drunken ness and 'beastliness. If the same re strictions were put on tea drinking as were imposed on alcoholic bever ages, similar beastliness' would be seen." At the first reading I felt I was.! reading the "script" for another epi side of "Dad and Dave, and the Snake Gully Shire Council," and that the above statement had been made., by "Cr Bill Smith." You are, of course, quite sure it was at the meeting of the Frankston Shire Council. that the statement was made? And was the rest of the drivel really said at the council table? I wonder what the Frankston traders think of allowing a booth and bar on the show grounds. The ipeople who all the year cater for visitors: have they no objection to one firm monopolisi...
"LEST DARKNESS COME UPON YOU." [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 18 August 1939
"LEST DARKNESS COME UPON YOU." "\Valk while ye have the light. that darkness overtake you not." It is a fair paraphrphrase of those wiords of Jesus to say: "Use the opportunities of your day, before the power to use then is taken from you.", How often do we confine the words of our Lord to what .we call "spi ritual" things, aihd then, not content even with' that llniitation, think of "e:piritual" things as concerned most ly with what lies beyond death! So we narrow down the teaching of Him Who 0came to` give men new. useful and joyous life even in this world and manke the whole earth the Kingdom of the Heavenly Father. Let us face the above words of Jesus as they apply to lus in our own time and place, and the great opportunities given to this generation. What shall we say of our achieve ments in relation to our opportuni ties? We can say that sct-nce. the great gift of God to our' time, has made the world a neighborhood with speedy transport and ready communi cations. WVe have the ...
