RAILWAY RAMBLINGS Schemes and Such [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 September 1939
RAILWAY RAMBLINGS Schemes and Such Perhaps 50 years ago, perhaps more, the railway was put through. Even in those dim dark days the forerunners of Mr Harris and the former Mr Clapp (who , has since taken a position mothering areoplanes) had a scheme. for a station in the vicnity of Patter son road. And even now there is a scheme for a station there. In the future, about 50 years hence, unless we are much mistaken, there will be a scheme for a station at Pittersonwroad. " However, we have been sniffing the wind and have smelt a scheme (a real one, this time) for a station in that sorely needed spot. Although nothing official has been announced, and it is still behind looked doors, so to speak, we are confident that in the near future (within 100 years or so) there will. be a station there Don't worry about the length of time. By then your great-grandchildren will.be able to reap the benefit of this outrageous extravagance on the part- of the rail ways. (If what our dailies tell us th...

2nd Semi - Final Spoilt by Rain [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 September 1939
2nd Semi - Final Spoilt by Rain SATURDAY was one of the worst football days in the history of the Mornington Peninsula, record wet conditions prevailing making the day one which players and supporters of the Sorrento and Frankston teams will never forget. Heavy rain which had fallen in- cessantly throughout the week and again on the morning of the second semi-final match made the playing arena in a very bad condition, the water lying all over the ground. This made it very discomforting for the players of the Frankston and Sor- rento teams, central, goal and boun- dary umpires Many persons expected that the match would be postponed but had this been done it would have meant prolonging.the season. The gate takings which amounted to £33 were good when weather con- &nbsp; ditions are taken into account. The football exhibited was of an excellent class considering the in- clement conditions, there being some good open play, marking and kicking by both sides. &nbsp; On the...

PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE-LINE MEN AND HORSES RIVETTE ENHANCES CUP PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 8 September 1939
PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE LINE MEN AND HORSES RIVETTE ENHANCES CUP PROSPECTS. (By "The Meteor.") Easily the best trial from a Caul field Cup viewpoint seen at the Heath last Saturday, was Rivette's third in the Heatherlie Handicap. Carrying 19 lbs. more than her cup impost, the little Ronsard mare was a certainty beaten. She swung away as the barrier went up and lost a number of lengths. Add to this the fact that she struck .trouble making a, run down the side, and yet to finish brilliantly less than a length behind the winner, Pibroch. It cannot be denied that she greatly enhanced her cup prospects. Riv ette's owner-trainer, Harry Bamber, was elated with her showing, and he makes no secret of the fact that he expects her to come through success fully next month. It is reasonable to assume that Rivette will be im proved from her. race, as she. had previously had a brief respite from active work. Another cup aspirant to please his admirers last week was Pure Gold. The Heroic colt rehabilit...
