WARRANDYTE v HURSTBRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
WARRANDYTE V H URSTBRIDGE. Hurstbridge journeyed to War randyte on Saturday last with a good team and a fair array of supporters. Hurstbridge jumped into their stridd from the bounce, and with nice con certed play soon took the lead. With the pace on from the jump off, War randyte commenced to use their weight, and the weaker players f.ll as the rush went on, and, favored by a lenient- umpire, this continued until the Hurstbridge captain (W. Under wood) adopted similar tactics with his team, and the game was soon in safe keeping. The final scores were -Hurstbridge, 10 goals 10 behinds; W\arrandyte, 5 goals 5 behinds. For the winners C. Wilson and Allen Verso appeared to be best in an even team, and G. Dillon and a few others whose names we were unable to ascertain, were prominent for the losers. The umpiring of Biddiscombe was most satisfactory. and without further comment say that he bounced the ball and the scuffle ensued to the end. Greensborough defeated Kangaroo Ground by 17-10...

ELTHAM v. HEIDELBERG. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 June 1923
ELTHAM V. HEIDELBERG. Eltham journeyed to Heidelberg on Saturday, where they met the local combination. Adliugton, McColl, Gol lings and Jenkins were the new men included in the team. Rain was fall ing wheir the teams took the field. The visitors were outclassed during the first quarter, when the locals put up a big score. Eltham were slow to the ball, the heavy conditions not suiting their light men. Considering the conditions, the Heidelberg men were marking excellently, and their players showed plenty of dash. The visitors were especially weak in the forward line, chances of scoring beiung thrown away time after time. After the first quarter the game was a see saw one, neither sides scoring appre ciably. Eltham were unable to score a goal, but the game, although not a spectacular one, was not one sided. The final scores were:-Heidelberg, 8 goals 12 behinds; Eltham, 5 be hinds. Few men on either side side showed exceptional form. Par sons in the ruck for Heidelberg and L. Parsons ...

DIAMOND CREEK v. TEMPLESTOWE, The former were at home to Temple stowe last Saturday, when on a slip pery ground the Creek team proved too strong for the visitors, who had several good men out with the "flu".

Mr. Everard's Grievance. POLICY OF FALSE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 June 1923
. Mr. Everard's Grievance. POLICY OF FALSE ECONOM1Y. Speaking at the quarterly meeting of the Olinda branch of the Women's National League, held at Olinda on Tuesday, Mr Everard, M.L.A., criticised the State Ministry for having adopted a policy of false economy. It was very nice for the Acting Premier (Sir William McPherson) to balance the ledger; but'while he was doing this some people who asked for bread were given stones. A policy of economy, if combined with efficiency, was de sirable, but economy without efficiency was false economy. The efficiency of Australia as a producing country de pended on the existence of good roads, and by a "mingy" policy of road con struction the Ministry had followed false economy. Another matter in which he thought that the Cabinet had erred was the limited manner in which overseas markets for Australian products had been developed. In the East, Australia had a market at her very doors, but surprisingly little had been done by the State to develop ...
The Bunyip. [Dedicated to Mrs Conway.] [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 22 June 1923
The Bunyip. [Dedicated to Mrs Conway.] In the hinterland of Christmas Hills, In a wild and lonely glen, There lives a budgery bunyip Far removed from human ken. You may hear him softly calling If the night be calm and clear. How wonderful his music Sounding far away or near. Or north, or south. you cannot .tell, Whence that deep note-crescendo That fills with fear the soul at night, Then dies-diminuendo. And you think you see him ghost-like, In the darkness at your side, Where the reeds are swaying wildly, Some huge monster sure must glide. Then you shudder and grow timid, When there breaks beneath your feet Some fallen branch, some withered leaf ; Hush ! hush ! -his grinding teeth. And you shiver in thd stillness, As his call swells to a roar Like the bellowing of a maddened hbull Stabbed by the Toreador. M.M. -
