Bulldog Creek Debating Society. IS WAR JUSTIFIABLE? (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 30 June 1917

Bulldog Creek Debating Society. IS WAR JUSTIFIABLE? By D. Medhurst (Continued.)' Mr. Greatheart (affirmative): I will now endeavour to make good my as sertion that a maxim gun may help to promulgate the gospel of Peace. At the outset, let us briefly look at th_ history of Christianity. At its inception and for long after, the fol lowers of Christ' were at the mercy of unbridled intolerance and diaboli cal cruelty. The days. are happily past when .(with the exception of the unfortunate people in the power of the barbarous Turk) men;, women and children were . sawn asunder, slowly burned to death as human torches, mangled and' devoured by wild beasts to make a Roman holiday, or at a later date the victims of It. Bartholomew's day or Smithfield fires. .Now I ask, Would Mr. Dove and tfiose that support his argument of submission care to revert to the old days of perseeution, or would they prefer to worship under their own vine and fig tree, none daring to make them afraid?

LETTERS.TO THE EDITOR. We do not hold ourselves responsible for, or' identify ourselves with, the opinions expressed by our correspondents. SCOTT'S HILL ROAD. .Sir,-I notice in your publication of the 23rd instant that Crs Lorimer and White have been making enquiries re garding a new road to be made leading into Glen Park, Eltham. Perhaps these two gentlemen mightfind sit convenient to also consider the matter of repairing the continuation of Scott's hill road, which leads into Glen 'Park, and which is really the main road for the residents. Why spend money in buying land to make a road when a road is already made and only needs repairing. I think this would suit the general public better. Yours, &C. ' A. KELLETT. Kenilworth-parade, Ivanhoe.

The choir, which comprised about 30 mem bers, under the conductorship of Mr Forster, gave a number of anthems and part songs very creditably, the titles be ilig " Give Peace O Lord," " O Love the Lord," "Sweet is the Sunlight," " Now is the month of Maying," " Softly falls 'the shades of evening," "The long day, closes," and "The In flammatus!' ( Miss Dorothy Hum phreys taking the solos in the latter number): Mr Goble sang two songs, " Friend of Mine," and " The Birth of Morn," which were well received. Sergt. Edwards established himself a favorite, being encored for his spirited rendering of " The -Bandoliero," responding with ;' Sons of Australia." He also sang " A Perfect Day" and a military song.
