GIRLS' CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 April 1923
GIRLS' CLUB. Being an interested spectator at the meeting of the Eltham Girls' Gymnastic Club on Tuesday evening, I. was surprised to see what advance ment the girls have made, as all the exercises performed were really good.. Miss M. Frizelle performs the duties of instructress admiirably, and is particular that each exercise must be perfect, or as near -perfec tion as possible. The girls them selves enter into the thing heart whole, and this spirit is the right one for the future success of the organisa tion. The club, socially, is a live one, and under its auspices a masked and fancy dress ball is being held. Evidently the Guild has adopted for its motto, "Nulli secundus," and ad herence to this motto will ensure sta bility for all time. The objects of the club are, briefly, to promote and foster good feeling amongst the young ladies of the locality, and en suring better development and health per medium of the exercises indulged in.

ELTHAM. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.m. On Monday week a very enjoyable fancy dress dance was held at "Koo ringarama," the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Boake, Eltham. A lot of young people were up from Melbourne, spending the week-end. The fun com menced about a quarter to seven o'clock. Everyone had dressed before dinner, and as each came in they were greeted by laughter and mur murs of approval. When all were seated, the room presented a gay and novel sight. There was a swarthy Sheik, sitting next to an Indian squaw; and there, an Eastern Tady sitting down to meat with a braw Scotch laddie, in kilt and sporan; and so on. It was a gay and mirth-pro ,voking meal. At about 7.30 they com the strains of a 'ramophone. Then, later on. about nine o'clock, lured by the moonlight and strains of music from the local hall, about 30 amusing and picturesque figures wandered down and joined in the dancing there.

Correspondence. THE EXPLANATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 April 1923
Correspondence. THE EXPLANATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir.-I was much amused on read ing the alleged explanation given by the Eltham and Glen Park Progress Association as to why they took excep tion to :lr Everard's action in asking for a station instead of a "pick-up." From what Mr El. Tham said it ap pears that Mr Glen Park was not so much concerned what sort of a plat form they got so long as it helped to open up some land, and as it didn't come off they want to pin-prick the member. By the way, I have never seen him in Eltham, but understand he is always "knocking at the door" in our interests, and when one hears what Mr Progress says and also "the man in the train" about his thorough knowledge of the wants of his con stituency, one can only say "let the disgruntled members of the society go to blithering blazes," and allow the real progressive men of Eltham to guide us along a course where bicker ings and selfishness will not be toler ated.-Yours, &c., ELECT...

Mr. J. H. Foggie Killed. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 April 1923
Mr. J. H. Foggie Killed. We are sorry to record the sudden death by accident of one of our staff, Mr James Henderson Foggie, which happened on Saturday afternoon last at about 5 p.m. in Nicholson Street, North Fitzroy, near the intersection of Pigdon Street. Mr Foggie had been visiting some friends, and was going to see his youngest son, Arthur, who lives at Kensington, and having his violin in his hand was waiting for the tram to come when a motor came along at a rapid pace and struck him. He was rendered unconscious, and very badly smashed about, dying almost immediately. The driver of the car, Matthew John Curtain, 29, was arrested on a charge of manslaughter, and will come before the court on Tuesday. He says that it was an accident. Mr Foggie, who resided at Upper Diamond Creek, was in the habit of spending &nbsp; the week-end visiting his family and friends around Melbourne, and always took his violin with him. He was born at Queenstown 62 years ago, and served his tim...
The Race. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 April 1923
The Race. Perhaps you've heard of Bill and Bert, And their famous temperance plan ; But since they've taken to the car, Each is quite a different man. Though they don't put a ban on the liquor, Or even complain of the cost; But a driver inclined to get shikker, May soon find his license endorsed: Now they're each got a galloping bedstead, And are happy when going the pace ; So one day, for a bit of diversion, Bert challenged Bill to a race. &nbsp; Though anxious to give Bill some pointers, The advice that he gave did not jar ; For while Bert may have had more expe- rience, Bill has got a more powerful car. So each saw to the accelerater, And got ready to open the throttles ; While for lunch that they'd be having later, Bert had put by a couple of bottles. At first when the race had been started, Bert soon had a bit of a lead ; But Bill on his top gear was going, And began to develop some speed. He soon was alongside of Bertie, Who started to shout more advice ; But the Dust ...
The Fruit Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 April 1923
The Fruit Industry. Reports to hand go to show that the display of fruit at the Royal Agri cultural Society's annual show in Syd ney was one of the best and most representative displays put u-p by growers. "The Leader" says that Mr. W. H. Everard, M.L.A., who was on a visit to Sydney, took advantage of the occasion in order to make com parisons for the benefit of Victorian growers. He received every courtesy from the secretary and president, and the officials in charge left nothing un done that could be done in order to provide him with information regardl ing the industry, and to make his visit interesting and enjoyable. Mr. Everard was particularly impressed with the magnificent display in the district exhibits, which took the form of five superb pyramids. The exhibits showed . a remarkable uniformity, both as regards quality and size. These exhibits were on a much larger scale than anything at the Melbourne show, but it has to be remembered that the Sydney show is held in the hei...

NOTABLE TOASTS. "THE KING!, GOD BLESS HIM!" [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 April 1923
NOTABLE TOASTS. "THE KING !; GOD BLESS HIM !" Next to the toast of the "King" which is drunk every night in milit ary and naval officers mess, probably the most taoebed man in the world is Robert Burne, the poet. There are Burns' clubs in every nook .and corn er of the world, and Scots keep them up even on the battlefield, and when eer they forgather "the immortal memory" is toasted. One of the quaintest toasts is the bne and only of the Twc Pins Club. The name of the club, which is an equeetrian one, is derived from Tur pin and Gilpin, and the only toast permitted is to "Turpin's daring and Gilpin's respectability.

ARMY'S GUN DOCTOR. -4--+- The guns Britain is using in France last much !onger than one has a" riht to expect, and pieces whcws normal life might be calculated at G,000 or 7,000 rounds fire 13,000 or 14,000 with out the loss of accuracy. Besides the guns. themselves, how ever, enormois crediit : is due to the gunners, ns .vell as to the character of the ammunition and to the people who make it at home. By no means the least important factor of the work of what are known as the mob ile ordnance workshops, being hospit' als for sick guns, which, like dressing stations for human casualties, are ever pushing up behind our lines. The establishment and machinery for handling and repairing big guns are unavoidably cumbersome, with the great cranes, dynamos, lathes, plan ers, and other heavy machinery tools which are needed. but one of these shops rushes up into new waste coun try where the whole area of the shop has to be paved or floored before a lorry or a gun can be moved in it.
