Centre Riding Contest. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 2 September 1921
Centre Riding Contest. (By Our Somerville Correspondent.) The municipal election, held on Thursday, 25th ult., to fill the vac anoy in the Centro Riding created through the retirement of Cr Grifelh, was productive of unusual interest. There was scarcely a slack period in the time allotted for voting. - A 're co-d poll was established for this riding, nearly evely voter on the roll recording his or her note, either personally or by post, which meant keeping the ofllcials fairly well em ployed. Two of the candidates, Messrs McLean and Gerrand, did an active canvass, and had motor care and other vehicles to bring their supporters to the booth. Mr Unthank refrained from this method of recur ing votes, contending that, as a matter of principle, it is far from faultless, and that each elector should regard it both as a duty and a privelege to. record their votes without any "coaxing" from bud ding candidates, who are offering their services without fee or monetary reward. The supporters o...

The Wes ternport lads have taken the mat-, ter seriously and expect to win. This is how they view it. Donnie Knox, their capable leader, says "I think we can win ; we will make abold bid for victory." Bill Armstrong has no doubt about it. "Of course, we will win," says the man with the famous name. "Pompy" Francis, having long experience, is more modest, and "thinks we have a good chance." "I believe we will win" is the way "Nipper" Floyd puts it. He ought to have said, ."It won't be my fault if we don't." Veteran Bill Allen "likes our chance," and Frank Allen reckons "our chances are...
