Mr. Wilson (secretary to the Acting-Premier) and Press representa tives, left on April 26th for his long promised trip to the Kinglake. Strath bogie, Mansfield, Alexandra and Healesville districts for the ostensible object of examining the bad roads and the conditions of the settlers of the hill country. Nb doubt existed in the minds of the party as to the state of the roads visited during the three-days' trip, and there was ample proof of the fact that many of the hill settlers-on account of the inaccessibility to the rail heads and the bad season-were in a pre carious condition. The first call was Mount Slide-road, and the easy grade of the steep climb was spoken of with enthusiasm by the Treasurer, who was impressed with the fine engineering feat which had been evolved by the Country Roads Board.

Kangaroo Ground v. Templestowe. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 11 May 1923

Kangaroo Ground v. Templestowe. This match was played at Kangaroo Ground, and was notable for the fight put up by the locals against big odds. Through unforeseen circumstances Kangaroo Ground took the field with only 14 men against their opponents' full team. Of these 14, four were raw recruits, but'though beaten by Temple stowe by 8--14 to i-i the game was not as one-sided as the scores indicate. Even Wvhen Templestowe favored by the wind attacked again and again they were driven off by the Kangaroo Ground lads, and their stubborn tight against such odds gained them the ad miration of a fair crowd of spectators. The central umpire, Duggan, was con sisient in his decision, and gave satis faction to both sides. For the winners those who played the best were W. Morrison, R. Hughes, with C Mullins, whose play forward was brilliant. Others unknown to the reporter also showed good form. For Kangaroo Ground, O.
