7I RAIN oPLS )POOTBALL. No SURiPRTISES ': G":OOD PLAY IMPOSSIBLE i 'QN MUDDY GROUNDS A COLD, bleak wind and.continuous drizzling rain made conditions most unpleasant for football, and in conse quence attendances at all matches were affected, only the most ardent supporters braving the -elements. Good foot ball was out of the question and kicking off the ground was the order of the day.. Montmorency surprised even their own supporters by producing their best form of the season in a stirring last quarter in which they were unfor tunate to hit the post on two occasions. The Eltham Greensborough match was anybody's game almost to theifinal bell. Eltham showed better form in the first half and 'btained a fair lead, but the visitors improved as the game advanced and made the finish very exciting. Epping were too strong for the Diamond Valley Juniors;, althoilgh at timesithe Juiiiors had.their opponenfs flat out' but could not hiaintain the pressure, DIAMOND VALLEY ASSOCIATION ;PREMIERSHIP...

SVWHITTLESEA COUNCIL NEWS WHITTLESEA POUND At the February meeting of the Whittlesea Council the Whittlesea Poundkeeper (Mr. W. Thomas) ten dered his resignation from the pos ition. At the request of the council he agreed to continue until the coun cil could make other arrangements. It was decided that the council make inquiries regarding a new site; to buy a piece of land if possible. To the present it has not been pos sible to obtain a new site.

Councillor McDonald, however, pointed out that the Whittlesea yard was quite unsuitable, because it was very wet. The matter has been left in abey ance.
