A NEW TOWN HALL? (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939
A NEW TOWN HALL?. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Letters atppearing in your paper relative to the necessity of a town hall in Frankston interest me considerably as I -consider this is a matter on which all those interested in the progress of the towvn. should voice an opinion. Personally, I agree- that this.- dis trict has not yet developed sufficiently to be in a position to afford the neces sary outlay on such a building,.:-and that' its construceion would 'be a de finite mistake. Many instances can be cited where municipalities have erected elaborate town halls, much to the regret of ratepayers who are burdened with 'an exorbitant interest bill, while urgent works in these municipalities are neglected from lack of funds. I fail to see how the revenue from a town hall in Frankston could meet the annual interest'on-the capitalfout lay, much" less' pay all `the necessary: maintenance costs: Apart from a few? dances or balls, ;with .possibly several municipal functions - each Lyear, I would a...
B GRADE. CLOSE GAME AT HASTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939
B GRADE. CLOSE GAME; AT HASTINGS. Frankston were without -the ser vices of L. Richards (injured), J. Gay ler and F.. Graham (A Grade), who were replaced by B. ands W. Petrie and S. Hart. Frankston'winning the toss kicked with the wind, and at the first change were 2 goals in the lead. Players to show out in this quarter were S. Hart, W. Petrie and S. Osmond. Hastings were captained by their A grade skipper, who at centre half-back was playing a very rugged and deter mined game. Hastings had their turn with the scoring end, 'but such was the effi ciency of Frankston's defence they only managed to even up. the scores. "Beau" Guest was playing improved football at this stage, and brought down' many fine marks. SUmpire Dore added to his reputa tion by giving another splendid dis play, of umpiring. Aprpoval was heard from both sides. - Frankston- lost the. match in this quarter in not taking advantage of the strong breeze. One or two play ers for the red and blacks were show ing signs of...

TYABB CRICKET CLUB. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939
TYABB CRICKET CLUB. (To the Editor.): Sir,-I was rather surprised to learn that .the Tyabb Cricket Club had de cided to simply hold a social evening to celebraites their recent premiership success. Most local cricketers (w~he ther past. or present players) fully expected that a more elaborate enter tainment would have -been held, and certainly something more .in keeping with .the well-deserved ..title; of Ipre nilers. The decision of the cricket club to -hold a* social evening and charge cheap admissioni is regarded as the big joke of the week ,and it is to 'be hoped that perhaps it may not met be too late to get together and liold something bigger arid better. .Yours etc., ARNOLD NOBLE, Member, Tyabb 'A' Premier Eleven. Tyabb, 13/5/39.

TURF WICKETS. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939
TURF WICKETS. (To the Editor.) 'Sir,--Regarding.,the establishing of a turf wicket for. Frankston, I 'am more than convinced *that:.the time. hlas arrived when-we=should have, -not only thq turf, but a team of our young. athletic:men to represent this district, not in "tin-pot" competitions; 'but in the sub-district section of the V.C.A. We have "the goods," :but owing to lack of local interest-and support for the local club many of the best play ers go to the city or suburban clubs. I inspected the.. Cranbourne :road ground, and, as a former- first grade Iplayer .with St. Kilda and East Mel bourne, I can declare that Jthere' is not: another enclosure within. "hom ing" ;:distance of - Melb~irne .to` com pare vith that' fine ground. It, has every 'essential needed to. make for ideal playing;:conditions, viz., perfect lay-out, splendid light, shadowless, and, above all, plenty of arena.

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939
(To the Editor.) Sir,--You are to be congratulated on. launching the campaign for the abolition of sustenance labor and the institution, of full-time work. .All your readers, I am sure, will admit that the existence of such a social cancer is a disgrace to a civilised Christian society. In contributing to the discussion might I suggest that there are two fundamental propositions' which should be kept in mind, no matter from what angle the problem is ap proached. The first is that in a country like Australia, which many times over pro duces the necessary essentials for a decent standard of living for all its inhabitants, there is no valid reason why people should be in a state of ý want, nor should any excuse be tol eiated. j Secondly, in a civilised social order, the right to work should be the in- I alienable birthright and obligation of every citizen mentally and physically capable of so doing. While some are so fortunately placed that they are not obliged to contribute to the wel...
(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939
(To the Editor.) Sir,-You are to be complimented on the stand you are taking with re ,ard to. the proposed abolition of the lole, or "susso," and your articles are to be commended. .Or Miles' suggestion that work sllhould be subsidised is an excellent one, and should be investigated and discussed to the last.detail. It is common property that muni cipalities generally have taken advan tage of the sustenance system and have no real desire to see it replaced, especially when they can 'boast pub licly: "See what we have done with cheap labor." But the fact that re tiring councillors in this municipality will be opposed at the coming elec tions this year should stir the council into some semblance of activity by August. Let the ratepayers make sustenance one of "the burning questions this year and you will find that our council will probably make some definite move towards the true relief of unemploy ment. Last August the municipal rubbish tip and the Mechanics' Hall were both verbally ...
Abolish the Dole! Readers' Views [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939
Abolish the Dole! --------- DOo * Readers' Views Wide-spread approval has been expressed of our article on the unemployment problem published last week. It is impossible to pub lish all of the letters received at this office, but the following Is a selection. We appreciate the interest and sincerity of the writers, and urge upon them to become real Apostles in the cause of Justice. (To the Editor.) Sir,--About doing away with the dole. Here is a suggestion which a would ease it a little and do a lot of good for the country: Construct a con crete road around Australia and pay ' for it the same way as the East-West line was 'paid for. Apart from taking thousands off the dole, the enormous amount of good a; road would do for Australia is also a consideration. The road is an absolute necessity for defence, such as marching, motor ing of guns, and also aeroplanes could use it to land and take off any time, any place. The men who help to construct the road would see our great continent an...
