The Fernery Ice Plant Mr Bruce Mellor Replies to Mr James Bradbury [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 2 September 1921
The Fernery Ice Plant Mr Bruce Mellor Replies to Mr James Bradbury To the Editor. Sir,-May I crave space to com ment on Mr. Bradbury's letter to the Council, published in your is sue of 19th inst., and on the ab ridged report of the council meet ing of 4th inst. (1) Mr. Bradbury's statement that the petition is based "on :the. ground of preserving a residential area" is only part of the truth. The main objections are the noxious smell and intolerable noise caused by the working of the plant. (2) His emphatic denial of any nuisance is absurd. 'How does he account for the fact that prac tically all his neighbors say other wise? .Does he suggest that he alone is right, and that the peti tioners (the whole 28 of them) are wrong? &nbsp; (3) His statement that the plant has never run after 10 p.m. is woefully wide of the mark. If necessary I can assemble a for midable number of persons to tes tify as to this. It is reasonable to suppose that Mr. Bradbury, not realising that he was...
The Standard Medals Will "Outsiders" Beat the "Favorites"? [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 9 September 1921
i "The Standard iMedals' Will "Outsiders" Beat the "Favorites"? We have decided not to pub lish any further progress results of the voting for these medals at the present time.. This has been rendered necessary by the fact that we have definite knowledge that large numbers of coupons are being held back until the last moment in order to spring a sur prise. By. not publishing any more progress figures, the result will be more-eagerly awaited by those interested, and it may be that those who are anxious to spring a surprise may have the surprise sprung on themselves I The position at the present is very interesting. Several who appeared to have little hope have now moved into commanding po sitions,' seriously challenging those who. have been leading for. so long, It is really impossible to forecast even" in.one's own mind the probable winner.: More than 12,000 coupons have been circul 'ated' since the inception of the 'plebiscite. The present position 6f the vo-, ting is being kept se...

Seals at Phillip Island [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 9 September 1921
Seals at -Phillip Island At Seal Rocks, Phillip Island, there' are (says .the "Midnight Sun") anything from 2,500 to 5,000 seals. Beyond acting as an attraction for visitorss to Cowes, the seals serve no useful purpose, but there are few who. would de sire to. see them completely ex terminated, as desired by. many fishermen on" the shores of Wes ternport. It is claimed by.some that the seals are a serious men ace to the fishing industry, but against this 'statement the Direc tor of the Zoological Gardens ex presses the view that they are harmless to the industry, as they live mainly on cuttle-ftsb(_At one tiime in Austiralia's hiiory, the. getting of seal pelts was a source of great wealth.. Sir Joseph Banks, for instance, spoke'of a' cargo of 30,000 pelts as the re sult of a single expedition.

1,000 Miles a Minute—? Joy Riding on Comets ! [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 9 September 1921
1,090 Miles a Minute-? -:Joy Riding on Comets ! A reader of "The Standard" has drawri our attention, to a'ia ragraph in "The Age," which states (so he says) that America possesses a motorboat that travels 80,567 miles per hour, and asks what we think about it. Well, we have heard of the Yank who was fond of joy-riding on comets. but we could hardly be expected to digest a tale like that, for the simple reasoil that no human be ing; whirled through space at a rate of over 1000 miles a minute, in a motor boat or anything else, could possibly live. And so we investigated the paragraph and found that our friend had made a slight (?) mistake. What the motor boat did do was to register 80.667 (not 80,567) miles an hour. So instead of- travelling 1000 miles a minute, as our friend thought; we were only travellifin about one and a third (1.3425 miles a minute, or about 80,485 miles per.hour less than our good friend imagined. ,
