ESSENDON FOOTBALL CLUB V.F.A. ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 12 March 1914
ESSENDON FOOTBALL CLUB ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of Essendon Foot ball club was held in the Essendon Public Hall on 5th March. Cr. T. P. Lyons. president, occupied the chair, and there was an attendance that comfortably filled the hall. The President expressed pleasure at pre. siding although the season just closed had not been as successful as could have been anticipated. There was one fact out standing, viz: that the good position of the club was due to the efforts of the committee, who had been obliged to man age on £275 less receipts than had charac terised'the previous season. This showed good business on the part of the com mittee, who. had not taken out of the funds of the club as much as the price of a cigar or a drink during the season. LHe expressed warm appreciation of the good work of Dr. Spring. who was preSent at slmoet every meeting. and who ably conducted the business of the chair when called upon to preside. The work of Mr. McInttyre on the coumnittee was a...
LEFT-HANDED CHILDREN. DANGER OF CHECKING HABIT. CAUSE OF STAMMERING AND DULNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 12 March 1914
LEFT-HANDED CHILDREN. 'D;ANGER oF CHECKING'HABIT. CAUSE OF STAMMERING AND SDULNESS. :. Lecturing- before the. Child Study So cietyin London; Mr.. P. B. Ballard, London County Council Inspector of Schools, said that left-handed bowlers sent down the ugliest balls, and left handed boxers'dealt.the most unexpect ed blows. To be- left-handed, it seemed, was regarded as not merely awkward, but wicked, But lie said,. any attempt to interfere with a child's natural habit 6f. using the left hand was liable to make him starmer . Out of one. group of 545 lefthanded children 1,per cent. of pure left-hand ors stammerled against 4.3 per cent, of 399 left-handers being taught to use the right hand. In another group of 207 the figures were 4.2 per cent. and 21.8 per cent, respectively. Six out of tel, left-handed children who had been taught the use of the right hand were practically cured of stammering after being allowed to use the left hand; exclusively for eighteen months. All of-which went to...
NOTES BY THE WAY [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 12 March 1914
NOTES BY THE WAY -.----.. By "Observer." At time of sriting, the question of the appointment of lfr. Alfred Deakin as High Commissioner for Australia in America, after heo has completed his duties as Chairman of the Commission to control the Australian exhibit at the Panama Exhibition, lacks a definite aspect, and that gentleman, himself, says that he knows practically nothing about it. Irrespective altogetler of the personal popularity of Mr. Deakin and the bteem he is held in by per sons of all shades of politics, the aip pointment of a 'permanent Conrnus stoner for the Australian Common wealth in America will certainly be the creation of an utterly useless office, and another example of unjustifiable Federal expenditure. Even as regards the filling of this role in England by Sir George Reid, many people fail to see the necessity of it, considering every State has its Agent-General in London, but such an appointment as re-ards America will be a costly farce indeed. If, weu are s t...

THUMBS UP From "Sydney Sunday Sun." Two tramps were crossing a bridge over a river one day, when they. saw -a notice which read: "£1 will be given to anyone saving life from this bridge." "You jump in, Bill, and I'll come and ressue'you," said one. "Right-ho!" said the other. "And then we'll share the quid." According li one of the tramps plunged into the river and began to yell lustily for help. Mike, safe on the bridge, turned to his friend struggling in the water, and, with an excited countenance, called out : "Sorry, Bill, but I've just seen a no tice that says two pounds will be paid for a dead body!'.' -P.

NEW MOTOR CAR TYRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 12 March 1914
INEW MOTOR CAR TYrtE. Anowi tyre has made its appearance. which is a sort of combination of solid and pneumntic. It is lnot unlike tile ordinary tyre for which it can be substituted with out alteration its existiln standard tyro rims. Its principal point of differenceo lies in its elnormously tlickened tread Al.d in thie unluaial manner in which the tread i. formed. Tile tread itself is four or five times as thick as tile normal tread, and fornled ill it there are a . rn- r II very deep indentations alternatimu o01 either side and overlapping slightly at the centre of the tread. Between these in dilntations, alt tile sides tereer Pre u .,rr scooped out placLs, the purpose of whicel .x to assist in tile radiation of natural heat. By means of the deep indleniadous it is pointed out that the prinicpal drawback to tile solid tyre; barring its. lack of 'resili ency, of course,' is eliminated. . This draw back, it may be explained, is due.to the. tact that the weight of the car and its pr...
CROSS-CHANNEL AIRSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 12 March 1914
CROSS-C1ILNEL AIR.SHIUP5S. Captain C. M. Waterlow, of the Royal Flying Corps, states that a new materiul has recently been discovered in England for manufacturing the gas envelopes of uirs-iss. It practically eliminates the leakage of gas. Thel secret of its mann facturo cannot be discovered by examinan tion or analysis. This material will make the airship a feasible commercial propo sition as a passenger-carrying vehicle. Captain Waterlow prophesies that airship.s runninob regularly between London and Paris will carry fifty passengers; and do sixty miles an hour with ease and co- fort. "As passengers pass' through the turostiles to the airship .their weight will. be recorded. Those over thirteen stone would have to pay excess. Conse. quently gontlemeni near the limit would discard coats and wraps, and give thenm to their lighter frienas. All England would be furnished with lighthouses-the white upper light would be the country one. and thile lower red light would indi cato the subd...
