Sir,-As a citizen of Franketon I am wondering when our civic tathers w?il. awake from their apathy and shake the sleep from their qye~ , and take immediate steps to form some neans to evacuate .the women and children of our 'community to places of safety, also the distribution of-gas masks. As the German and Japanese bomb ers seem to be inclined to bomb civilian towns- without 'regard to thFe women and children resident therein, 1 think that it is most essential that those with authority. should arrive at soiie measures of safety for all those vwho cannot aid themselves.-Yours etc., EDGAR C.

Some Impressions [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 8 September 1939
Some Impressions THERE were very few cars left in Sorrento last Saturday as there was a general exodus to Frankston to witness the final between Sorrento and Mornington. Sorrento team was weakened by the absence of Keil and Jennings from the back line and Glover from the centre. Mornington appeared to ,be at full strength. Holding Mornington well during the first quarter when they had the advantage of the wind. Sorrento seemed to be in a good position. During the second quarter Sorrento had the wind and from thirteen scor ing shots could only manage two goals. Mornington had a break during the third quarter when- they put on.three goals in quick time. Though Sorrento tried hard during the' last quarter they were quite un equal to the task set them by Morn ington. As a spectacle the match was a poor one, there being little good foot ball seen. The umpiring was very lax. It seems that there should be some provision for penalising players who consistently kick the ball out. of bounds i...
War [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 8 September 1939
.War ,.ghastly, horrible word. One that twenty years ago we Imagined had been put out of circulation. A quarter of a .century ago 850,000 men left Australia determined to end it for ever. But their sacri flices were in vain, and now is not the time to ask the why and the wherefore. Great Britain is at war, consequently Australia is at war, and a united front is necessary to! overthrow a form.of Government which during the past couple of years has become more intolerable each month. Whilst students of international affairs agreed that Germany had certain just grievances regarding the treatment of her minorities under the Treaty of Versailles, not one of those grievances could not have been solved by peaceful negotiation. But Germany is ruled by a military caste-the antithesis of democ racy. Reforins in the internal life of Germany have been carried out with ruthlessness. And that same ruthlessness has been displayed in international affairs. Despite violent criticism by many sections...

Sporting Highlight AL. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 8 September 1939
Sporting Highlight ----.--oOo AL. Sportsmen have not forgotten Al Karasick, he of the very bulgy . chest. Al wrestled in Australia about 14 or. 15 years ago, and was fairly popular. These days he is a big-sb ot wrestling promoter in Honolulu. All these bright lads who are "entertaining" thousands of Australians now appear in-that tropic isle under Al's management; Al. tried to introduce, this 'wild all-in stuff, when he was in Mel. liourne in 1926. We remember seeing' him wrestle Billy Meeske at the West- Melbourne Stadium and he tried to put over the hair-pulling, jumping into the middle of -the back, kicking, etc. And do you know what the reactions of the adience were?' They first of all laughed loud and long, then they counted them out so vociferously that the business • was never repeated-that is, until three or four:years ago. Now it goes over big. Funny, isn't it! " '
