NEWSPAPER COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 2 October 1914

NEWSPAPER COMMENT ^ Complaints were made to both Footscray and Braybrook councils on Monday last that a local news paper, in thfl fervour of its advocacy of its own particular route for local trams, had exceeded the bounds of fair comment, and made imputations against the bona-fldes of councillors delegated to the tramway conference. Cr Pennell, at the Braybrook meeting, said that the paper had stated that the experts had been persuaded to report on only one route—that i'ecommondcd by the shire delegates; also that if Footacray wanted to do any good in the matter of trams it would need to leavo out the two shires, Braybrook and Werribee'.- He demanded to know where that paper got its information—it seemed to know more than the expert himself, As.a matter of faot, the expert had reported on the racecourse.tram route, and he had said it was madness to think of putting a tram through there. He thought an ox planation should bo asked of the news paper in question. Cr McKay i You can't b...

Let the Mothers be Educated. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 2 October 1914

Let the Mothers he Educated. It has been considered from the earlt est times that a mother's love wag o sufficient outfit for her in the care of her children, that in some mysterious way the knowledge which is needed everj day iu the delicate and involved busi ness of rearing the young of the human species would be contained in this love, and that no special preparation for the work is necessary, saya a writer in Har per's Weekly. "When one reads the terrible statistics that one-half of the xace die before reaching the age of 6 years, suspicion becomes strong that this time-honored belief in regard to mothers is a barbarous mistake. When a person of judgment enters the average nursery and watohes its workings for a week, the suspicion grows 'to a ghastly conviction; and when a Consciontious, and intelligent person becomes familial with the amount of discretion neoesaarj to keep a family of children iu health for a single calendar year under the complicated conditions of modern civil...
