History As She Was Parliament Inaugurated CHAPTER? [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939

.History As She Was Parliament Inaugurated CHAPTER 7. Bass and Flinders established the first "Sharpies" Club and sailed around and mapped out the coast line-round about 1796. 'We can almost remember it. They did have hopes of making.some appearance money at Henley-on-the-Yarra, but the Henley girl beat them to it. What sdurvy treatment for such gallant gentlemen. Hunter (1795-1800) and; King (1800-1806) were the next Govern ors, and had a helluvah time. Some of the locals had seen the Grena dier Guards Band in Sydney, and thought Australia should have some thing to 'beat the band, so they formed the New South Wales Corps. Their first job was to tcommandeer every speakeasy in the colony, so if you wanted a spot you had to be able to whistle Coloney Bogey. These bright gentlemen also grabbed miles of fertile land and proceeded to till the soil-with the aid of our ancestors-and one McArthur, who was grabber-in-chief, imported sheep and became, the filrst.grazier. Thus also was the Aus...

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939

(To the Editor.) Sir,-The general impression of most people is that the municipalities pay the wages of sustenance workers. and it was suggested at the Ipublic meeting at Mentone that the councils do pay the wages, and this was ad vanced as a reason why more men could not be employed by that coun cil on work in return for sustenance. Later the meeting was informed of the true position of this matter. You suggest that the unemployed could, with advantage, seek the support of the churches. We Welcome support from all organisations, and with that object in view our branch is taking steps to convene a public meeting, and all organisations will be circu lated for support. This was agreed upon some week sago. and will be discussed at our monthly branch nmeettig. ing support of the churdhes, I append the following article which appeared in. the Age of 12/3/38 under the title.

BIZARRE COURT. Confetti Showers. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939

Confetti Showers. "The quality of mercy is not strain'd. It dropped as the gentle confetti from heaven, Upon the earth beneath." It is admitted that Shakespeare's measured cadences from The Mer- chant of Venice are badly distorted in the above quotation. The immortal bard, however, was not among those present to see the bizarre touch given to recent sessions of the Frankston Court by showers of confetti drifting on to the heads and shoulders of barristers and pressman from ventilators in the ceiling. The court sits in the ballroom at- tached to the Soldiers' Memorial Hall. On gala dance nights confetti is show- ered on the dancers through large ornamental ventilators in the ceiling. What remains drifts down in succeed- ing days to decorate professional men at the court. They emerge from the sessions with   conscience-stricken glances at a notice on the wall which states: "No Con- fetti, Please!" The Shire of Frankston and Hast- ings has been informed that a court &a...

Perhaps the following suggestion will lead to further developments: That all those who earnestly desire to see something done, attend the meeting of this league on Monday, June 5, to appoint a small body for the purposd of drawing up a plan of action for submission to the council and to a further public meeting for their coroperation. Any persp.l hav ing suggestions to make might hand them in on June 5. As citizens, this league will devote its meeting to this cause.-Yours etc., A. F. BLAIR, Hon. Sec., C.V. L;eague. Mentone.

(To the Editor.) Sir,-I wish to congratulate you on the campaign against the dole. The dole, too'often, makes the unemploy ed unemployable. Relief workers can be recognised on a job by their evi dent lack of interest. In the unem ployed not only does a great national asset go to waste, but, far worse, human hearts are made hopeless and despondent. How do you suggest that the control of our means of produc tion should be changed in order to include all ready to work?-Yours etc., EDMUND D. GILL, B.A., B.D. Hampton.

(To the Editor.) Sir,-Your resolve to wage war .against unemployment and the dole has cheered me. Good luck to you. Most people regard unemployment and poverty as unavoidable. They see nothing really disgraceful in wealth and poverty existing side by side. To them, "it simply can't be helped." I am glad you are appealing to the churches for support. We have too few ministers Christian enough and bold enough to raise their voices against the iniquities of our existing economic apd social orders. Those we have, and I know several person ally, are the salt of the clergy. I am convinced that most churchgoers are at heart anti-Christian-more anti Christian in their smug self-righteous ness and contentment than the hea then red rnggers whom they are taught 'to despise." The dole, wlie 4 does it mean? Some time ago I inspected the teeth of the pupils in a large school ,in this fair city. I found scores of them in a very had state. Nearly all of these children were from poor homes. Their pa...
