PARLIAMENTARY REFORM. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 September 1939
PARLIAMENTAR" REFORM.. (To the Edtior):.. Sir,-Your Safety Valve column it one that meets - with general appro val. May I add my mite to it? I am much interested in many pertinent facts outlined in your lead ilig, article of last week's issue. The paragraph dealing with the necessity of reforming our parliamentary sys tem is a gem, and in my opinion hits the nail on the head. However, it does not suggest a remedy. The tenor of your article indicates that in the opinion of the writer the quality of our parliamentary representation has deterioriated in some respects. This must be regretfully admitted. Per sonality and individuality has certain ly lost its punch, and until this is re gained the prospect of satisfactory Government is extremely limited. I respectfully submit, sir, that this is a matter of cause and effect, and .the cause in this instance is not hard to seek. Preferential voting (the greatest curse ever imposed on a democratic ,people) is, in my opinion, the chief cause o...
A.R.P. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 September 1939
oOo The precautions .necessary to protect civilians, including .women and children, from the fury of aerial warfare is a problem facing every nation in this enlightened year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-nine. No longer will war be conducted between male combatants. Even little innocent babies will be in the front line. The inventive geniuses who have evolved aeroplanes which travel at 400 miles per hour, which can travel thousands of miles ivithout refuelling, which can carry loads of bombs measured in terms of tons, which carry gas bombs-chlorine, phosgene lachrymatory, lewisite, etc.-now are trying to instruct the populace how to burrow into the ground to evade the wrath of their Inventions. Schneiders of France, Krupps of Germany, Vickers of Eng land, Skoda of Czecho-Slovakia, Mitsui of Japan, Skoda of Poland-just to mention a few-are working at top speed ,producing instruments of death" which they will sell to any- nation-their own or any other-so long as th...

Felix Holt Says [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 September 1939
Felix Holt Says THAT Cr. George Woods performed a great public service when he presented such a comprehensive report on the lighting of Pt. Nepean road to the Mordialloc Council recently. His lengthy report pointed out in detail-almost in inches-the inadequacy of the present lighting, and in equal detail he pointed out what should and could be done to make Point Nepean road safe for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. He did omit to mention that the construction of footpaths would obviate one danger, that of pedestrians being forced to walk on the, roadway because of the lack of paths. This matter should be attended to by the councils concerned without delay. It is their duty to provide foot paths, and Pt. Nepean road is a highway crying aloud for them. The lighting seems a matter 4for the Country Roads Board, which collects hundreds of thousands of pounds from motorists and spends it on roads-and very good roads. But what is the good of roads if you cannot use them at night? That ...
MILITIA NEWS (Intelligence) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 September 1939
MILITIA NEWS (Intelligence) I have to hand this week parti culars of a number of functions, parades, schools, etc., which are list ed for the next few weeks by the 46th Batt'n, 118th Batty, and R.A.E. .3rd Division, but at the moment these are contingent on the inter national situation remaining at the note-exchanging stage and for the present, at least, it is not intended to further advertise affairs of a purely social nature. It will be readily understood that drill halls will be required for sterner purposes than dancing and other social activi ties in the event of European affairs taking a turn for the worse and, con sequently cancellation of these events would automatically follow. Even -now, better news may be winging its way through the air, but an omnipotent Editor wants my notes (if any) by 10 a.m. tomorrow morn ing, and unfortunately I cannot put the clock back to wait and see. I can, however, in common with all other citizens, trust that before the. "News" goes to press, ...

Eyes & Ears of the Turf PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE-LINE MEN AND HORSES IS PURE GOLD A DERBY COLT? [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 September 1939
Eyes & Ears of the Turf PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE LINE MEN AND HORSES IS PURE GOLD A DERBY COLT? (By THE METEOR) Mordialloc mentor Jack Holt usu ally has a good three-year-old on hand to represent him in the spring classics, but I doubt very much whe ther Pure Gold, the stable hope of this season, is in the same class as Hall Mark, Avenger and Nuffield, all of. which have won Derby honors for Holt in recent years. Pure Gold's de feat by Grandson at Moonee Valley recently was discouraging, and his habit of running in when' hit with the whip is a sign of weakness. He will have to win the Warriston Handicap at Caulfleld this Saturday if he is to have a chance in the Caulfleld Cup, for which he has been well backed, or either the 'A.J.C. or' V.R.C. 'Derby. Little Joe Gilmore, who will ride the colt in the Warriston, came out" to ride him work on Tuesday. With hurdles out 20ft. from the rails, and the going heavy, Pure Gold went nicely over six furlongs in 1.21. His time was bettered t...

Football Protest Dismissed AGAINST MORNINGTON CLUB AT the adjourned meeting of the Peninsula League on Wednesday night last the protest lodged by Hastings-Tyabb against Mornington club on the grounds of Mornington playing an ineligible player was con tinued. The President of the League, Mr. J. Gloury, ruled that the protest be dismissed, the whole business should not be discussed as the matter should have been brought up at the begin ning of the season, also that disagree ments were likely to occur between quite a few clubs. _. Mr. McInnes (Naval Depot) 'said that he agreed with the President, in asmuch as the matter should have been raised early in the season, in stead of Hastings-Tyabb Club wait ing until they were defeated by Mornington in the semi-final. He also thought that the League would be held. up to ridicule. Mr. P.

Spotlight on the Semi-Final FRANKSTON DOWN SORRENTO [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 September 1939
Spotlight on the Semi-Final FRANKSTON DOWN SORRENTO "Critic" (Frankston) writes: Jn weather conditions that caused the "ostponment of senior football fixtures in Melbourne, the Morning ton Peninsula League's second semi final between Frankston and Sorrento could not have been expected to pro duce a remarkably high standard of football. Under the circumstances the large number of spectators did not look for a high marking, long kicking ex hibition, and the display given by both teams in adapting themselves to the water-logged ground proved highly en tertaining. Probably the antics of players in trying to control the ball caused more laughs at a football match than have been heard for many, years. Both teams were instructed by their coaches not to attempt high marking, to disregard drop-kicking, and not to hesitate to boot the ball' off the ground. These instructions were car-j ried out almost to the letter. Al thbugh several marks were taken in the air, only one :player (of Sorrento)...
