The Frankston Park Appeal to be Made to the Public for Assistance [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 14 October 1921
The Frankston Park?! Appeal to be Made to the Public for Assistance Frankston is not alone in its desire to improve its public Prirk. Mornington is also on the move and the suggestion under con sideration-there is that the Mlor nington shire council should raise a loan of £1200 for the purpose. At the public meeting held at Frankston last week the view was expressed that the council should strike a park improve ment rate here, but the counr cillors present did not give the idea much encouragement. As already reported in last week's "Standard," a committee was appointed to organise a fancy fair to raise funds, the under standing being that the council will give £ for £ with the public. A good deal of discussion arose over the best method for effec tively draining the oval. Mr N. Clements briefly outlined the report he and ,Mr McMurtrie had furnished at the request of the council. The report states inter alia--"We went thoroughly into the cause of the oval being wet, and came to the f...

The hall was magnificently decorated by the ladies, assisted by the Presi dent (Cr H. Rigby) and secretary (Mr E. Laging), the club's colors predominating in the decorative scheme.

Three enormous baskets of ferns and imitation flowers were hung along each side, whilst the stage looked a perfect fairyland, the musicians seeming like fair ies of music. Although supposed to be a plain and fancy dress ball, there were only six fancy costumes in the hall. Miss Heffernan was daintily arrayed in pale heliot rope silk, finished with deep ed ges of white, with a little cap to match--represent...

PICTURE NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 14 October 1921
PICTURE NOTES By "Vignette" Boisterous weather militated against the attendance last Sat urday night. "Oh, Boy ! " was a picture that the people like to see-full of genuine humor; free from the customary vulgarity and suggcs tiveness. " Handsome June Cap rice and the debonaire Creighton Hale were the fun-makers, tho' the prohibitionist who got hope lessly drunk was indeed funny "Dead-Men Tell No Tales," on the other hand, would have made t.he heart of Cetewayo palpitate withdoy. There ,was only one bright thing in this murderous picture- the face and figure of Catherine Calvert.

Sporting Notes SOME NEWSY TATTLE BY "STRATHMORE Born 1889-still going strong ! Who - Johnny Walker ? No, si ree, "The Standard." It was a very dark night, and the Langwarrin Fire Brigade had just been called out - a house on fire. The dreary darkness made fire-fighting difficult. "Better let 'er burn up a bit, lads," said the local Harry Lee, "and then we can see what we are doing." Of course, it happened on Sept 31st! Lacrosse is one of the few pas times that has not been given a trial on the Peninsula, although Essendon and Malvern played an exhibition match here some years ago. In Canada, lacrosse is the national gariie -A fine game, too, requiring pace, accuracy and cle verness on the part of it's play ers. I see a chap in the' "Midnight Sun" wants to make poets take out a licence before beingallowed to inflict jingle jangles on the long suffering public. He forgets that poets sometimes have good cause for rushing into print. Look at what "Wild Irishman," the Frankston poet, suf...

PICTURE NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 21 October 1921
PIeTURE .NOTES Last. Saturday's programme attracted a good attendance, and the programme was well worth it. The comedy, with Lloyd Ha milton as chief fun-maker, was something out of the usual. '"A Sporting" Chance" showed how dainty Fritzie Brunette made a fool of William Russell and then, naturally enough, married him. Constance Talmadge got up to her usual tricks in "The Perfect Wo man," and' caused the usual out burst of merriment. To-morrow night's programme will be headed by Faire Binney in "Madonnas and Men," a s?tory of Rome in Nero's timne when women were sold into s~avery. It is said--to be 'a very stiiking dramna. Harry Morey will also be starred in 'The Gauntlet."

11ow to Mlake Moqeyl "Argus" Report Repudi ated by Contractor To the Editor. Sir,-In your last issue, under the heading of "How to Make Money," you found it fitto attack the contractor carrying out road construction midway between Mornington and Frankston. Your remarks re charge for motors pulled out, your reference to ex tortion and blackmail, the con tractor will meet in the proper place. Suffice it to say here that the above mentioned remarks as far as the contractor or anyone connected in a responsible posi tion with him, are wicked lies, and I ask you to insert this to see whether the originator of these lies will be man enough to come forward to be dealt with.-I am, etc, Manager of Above Contract Our correspondent has quite evidently misread the article in question, which was reprinted from "The Argus." He makes a mistake in assuming that un worthy motives are imputed to the contractor. "The Argus" writer's reference to extortion and blackmail had no reference to him.--Editor ...

Mr Seivers Eulogised To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 21 October 1921
Mr Seivers Eulogised To the Editoa Sir,-For the information of those who do not know Mr Siev ers and may be led to misjudge him from the misleading state ments made in the Frankston Police Court lastMonday. I wish to say that he is a native of Aus tralia, born in Ballarat 67 years ago. He is one of a large family of sons, one of whom is a well known resident of Geelong. He is a cousin to Sir Justice Hood, and the family landed in Austra. lia about 100 years ago, when Dr John Hood founded the chemist shop in Elizabeth Street, which is still- run under the old name. So much for the insinuations as to his nationality. Mlr Sievers is much respected in Chelsea, where he has resided for 7 years. He is noted for his upright living and liberality to the poor. His children are prominent members of the Sunday School, and take leading parts in all the concerts. The local Salvation Army officers and respectable neighbors are willing to vouch for the respecta bility of the Siever family. In conn...

Se vior claimed that the young Smiths were blackguards, and that his sons were,- fighting to protect the fair name of, two young-ladies-of tender age. In the midst of the, fray, ,the old man said he got cracked by Jack Smith,: who had come to the res cue of his brothers. Willie:' Starffe; a :bright little follow of 9 orl10 summei's, was wiouiided in the fight, so it was fitting that he should : give his testimony. -He "went to Sunday school sometimes, " but-knew he would "get a hidin' from me mo ther" if he told lies.
