The Standard Punters Carbon Copy for Valley Cup. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 20 October 1949
BY "l Carbon Copy' for Valley Cup. Carbon' Copy has now struch his top form, and I doubt very much if there is another horse in Melbourne as •fit as. he is. There's certainly none more fit, as he literally is "jumping out of his skin." The decision to start him in the Moonee Valley Cup on .Saturday has added consider able interest' to' the lace. In his present form, Carbon Copy will .take no end of beating. I don't think he ever worked better than he did at Epsom on Tuesday, when he sti'eaked away from: his stablemate, "Cronides, to beat him by eight lengths over a mile and a quarter. in 2a12l. As the track was still,qp.the holding. side, it. was -an 'outstanding :trial. on Car bon .Copy's ptart. The. much-discussed meeting between the. four-year-olds 'Car bon Copy, Comic. Court and Vaga bond will probably come, in the L. K. S. -McKihnon Stakles 'at Flemington next Saturday week. Comic Court and Vagabond have each beiten. Carbon.

"WET" CUPBOARD PRESIDENT "DOESN'T CARE TWO HOOTS." Frankston .Branch of the W.C.T.U. wrote to the Shire of Frankston and Hastings, express ing regret that the new president had adopted a "wet" cupboard. Cr. Hirst moved that the W.C.T.U. be, informed that the Council carried out strictly the theme of temperance, and no councillor was ever anything but temperat6; therefore the Council's policy coincided with the Union's desires. He alleged the real de sire of the W.C:T.U. was to make councillors teetotallers. The president (Cr. Carpenter) said he did not take the criticism personally, as a "wet" cupboard had been the custom .of the Coun cil for many years.
