ROADS TO HURSTBRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 April 1923
ROADS TO HURSTBRIDGE. Sir,-Your correspondent, "Rate payer," re the Hurstbridge-road, in your last issue, starts with asking a question re a conference between the Greensborough riding of the shire of Heidelberg and the Morang riding of the shire of Whittlesea, knowing full well that such a conference was ar ranged. Now, there is no need to discuss that question. With refer ence.to there being only'- one council lor who wishes to see fair play to this so badly-neglected part r.' the shire of Whittlesea, that is an unjustifiable untruth. As far as I know, each councillor is willing to give just and fair play to each part of the shire. Cr. McCormack (the very impartial and able President of the Whittlesea Shire Council) asked Cr. Clarke- at the meeting the representatives of Heidelberg were present at, would he not be willing to meet Heidelberg on a lesser expenditure than £100 each. His answer was "No." The Presi dent then told him that would mean nothing spent on the road, as it was...
CHRISTMAS HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 April 1923
CHRISTMIAS HILLS. About 250 people assembled aronnd"the monument at 3.30, and the Anzac Day service. programme was followed, Mr Ha'lem acting as chairman. Rev. Shaw (Coburg) gave an elo quent address on what the day meant. Tl'he church does not glorify war any more thian any rational member of the community, but it does glorify the heroic deeds done in war the same as it glorifies the deeds that are done in fighting epidemics. War is hell, but alas, it has had.to be en tered into, and by men of great hearts. Never has anything been done that was worth 'having that did not cost something, and' it is worth what "our laddies did to build up the sense of 'oneness that builds up. the Britannic' Federation of Empire. Mr: Everard referred to what had been done for the soldier on the land, and asked if we had done. enough. When we see lads who have suffered p the least we can do is to help them' along'the road of life. Those boys have made history, and told the world if any one wants to get...

The Whittlesea councillors desired to see that portion of the road- iwidened, and Cape Horn cut off, and after a long discussion, and: after the Wliit tlesea members...

The Shire President (Cr. J. W. Bradbury), in extending a welcome to them, said it gave him great plea sure to say how pleased they were with the new service, which would be a boon to the place and cause it to go ahead. He contrasted the conditions of nine years ago, when he went to live there, from a health point of view, because it was a quiet place.
