CONCERT FOR RED CROSS [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 28 June 1940
CONCERT FOR RED CROSS The concert organised by the Hon. W. H. Everard M.L.A. in aid of the Doreen Branch of the Red Cross was successful far beyond; expectations. Though a number of additional seats had been procured, there was still not room for the enormous crowd, and many haJ to stand duiing the performance. The hall had been artistically dec orated with bunting, and when the Public Service Band of some thirty performers took their place on the platform, the sight was. most impos ing. Mr. Everard in introducing the band, spoke of the good work they were doing for charity of all kinds, by giving their services almost free of cost. He then spoke of the excellent work this branch, and all others, were doing for the Red Cross. The pro gramme was a unique one, and seein ingly was enjoyed by all. Miss Frawley with her mello-piano was de lightful and her humorous items with Mr. Migliatti as partner proved very popular. The Patriotic Airs played by the band were most stirring and appropr...

A.W.N.L. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 28 June 1940
A.W.N.L. The Doreen-Mernda Branch of the Australian Women's National League held their first annual meeting on Wednesday, June 19. Member:s and friends numbering seventy-five were present. The meeting opened with the National Anthm. Mrs. Creighton (President) then introduced Miss J. Sutherland, who occupied the chair. The speaker was Mr A. G. Adams of Melbourne, who gave a most instructive and interest ing address. He said that very few people, prior to the outbreak of the war, realised the danger that lay ahead. There were. numbers of people who had thought that Australia would do well out of the war, but this was not so. The best contribution the primary producer could give Great Britain was to see that prices did not bound up, thereby exploiting the Mother land, who; for 150 years, has given us everything it was possible to give -protection, self-government, mar kets for our produce, and every oppor tunity to dev'eldp and carve our own destiny. Mr.' Adanis went on to' say that th...

THRIFT IS THE ARTIFICIER OF FORTUNE Thrift is just saving, not alone by the accumulation of money, but by the wise spending of it, and saving is just commonsense. The majority of incomes are modest, so the majority of people must plan, either for unusually heavy purchases, or for the eventual establishment of a competence. The majority of people obviously realise this, and use the best, most practical system of all, the Savings Bank account. It costs nothing, holds your money safe while paying interest, and re leases it to you whenever and wherever you may require it.

ELTHAM BY Aý POINT Spectators at Montmorency last week certainly had their" money's worth. :Good football was seen under beautiful weather conditions.' Al though employment ieasons and in juries stopped Eltham from fielding a full team their players co-operated well enough to hold Montmorency and get `a one-point victory.

EPPING AGAIN VICTORIOUS [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 28 June 1940
EPPING AGAIN VICTORIOUS Contrary to the indication given by the scores, the return match be tween Epping and Greensborough last Saturday provided plenty of in- terest and thrills for the onlookers. Having won the toss and decided to kick with the wind, Epping failed to make as, good a use of this favor able factor as they might have done, principally because of the poor kick- ing by the forwards. Of eight scoring shots during the term, only two were majors; and it was only because of the magnificent work of J. Paulka and W, Pratt that the home team ended the term with an 18pt lead. These two players turned back Greensborough attacks time after time and left the visitors with a scoreless term. With their usual adaptability, the 1939 Premiers were not inconven- ienced by playing against the wind in the second term, and despite, the fact that Greensborough clapped on the pace, Epping continued to forge ahead during this period. The visitors' forwards were again bustled by Epping's defe...
Kangaroo Ground MR. J. STEVENSON GORED BY BULL [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 28 June 1940
Kangaroo Ground MR. J. STEVENSON GORED BY BULL While attending to some fencing on his property early this week Mr. James Stevenson was gored by a young Jersey bull which had, until that time been treated as a pet by the family. Mr. Stevenson was taken by sur- prise when the bull approached him from behind and threw him into the fence causing severe injury to the left shoulder and inflicting lacera- tions and bruises. When assistance arrived, Mr. Stevenson was lying on the ground holding the young bull by the horns. It had been the habit for members of the family to play with the bull, and it is thought that the attack was not made with any vicious intent; otherwise it would not have stood quietly when being held by the in- jured man but would have attempted to trample him as he lay. Mr. Stevenson is now making satis- factory progress in "'Genista" hos- pital at Greensborough.
