A Somerville Secretaryship To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 23 December 1921
A Somerville $ecretaryship To the Editor. Sir,--Some few weeks ago the directors of the' Somerville Cool Store, through the medium of your paper, called for applica tions for the position of secretary to their Company, at a salary of £50 per annum. Three applica tions were received, viz., Messrs C. Murray and W. Barber, (directors) and P. Cook (share holder), thus .leaving the busi ness entirely in the hands of the three remaining directors, Me'ssrs C. Grant, T. White and T. Iles. Their deliberations (if any) re sulted in the appointment of Mr C. Murray. Under the above circumstances, many sharehold ers think that the correct method for them to' have adopted was to call a general meeting of shareholders and give them the privilege of selecting the man best suited for their require ments. Even now, it is not too late to call a meeting to test the feeling of the shareholders on the selection made. I would like to advise the present secretary to see that he has full details of the minu...

Somerville [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 23 December 1921
Soamerirille One of the most successful of the many. annual scholars enter tainments, in connection with the local State school, took place on Thursday, 15th inst. The hall was well filled with an at tentive and interested audience, which fully appreciated each item given by the children. The stage was a mass of greenery, relieved here and there with a dash of floral color, which gave a very pleasing effect. This was the work of our local floral decorator, Mrs Alfred Thornell. The Correspondent of the School Committee, Mr G. E. Shepherd, senar, presided. Miss Cole played the accompaniments, and Miss Gunn assisted the Head Teacher in carrying out the stage arran gements. The whole programme was carried out in an admirable fashion from start to finish, and reflected much credit on the s'chool staff responsible for its production. The gross takings were nearly £16, the net proceeds being for the .up-keep and im provement of the grounds. The programme was as follows- Chorus, "Christmas ...

THE. SCOTCH CONCER'I. The programme presented at the Scotch concert in the Frank ston Mechanics' Institute last Friday was one of the best of the series. Misses Gordon and Paton fully maintained their reputation as the ablest of Melbourne's ex pdnents of Scotch song. Mr Os borne, as on the occasion of his former visit, delighted the sec tion of the audience which pre fers the humorous. Mr Patterson, who also made a second appear ance at these concerts, was at his best.

Miss Leckie, who had to respond to persistent recalls, danced admirably... Mr Stephen, a clever young pianist, who, by the way, is a pupil of-Miss Dora* thea Macmaster, and Mr Witting ham, of the Albert Street Con servatorium, gave 'really high class performances on piano and violin respectively in a fashion which was ful...

The Standard. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1921 [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 23 December 1921
` Che tanbart FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1921 We wish our readers one and all the compliments of the season. Nobody nowadays is much concerned about thce historical questions suggested by Christ mas. They leave that to antiquarians, but they are immensely interested in the festivities of the occasion, the change, the holidays at the seaside, or on the hills, the family reunions, -and all the other delights with which Christmnas is so happily associated. It is pre-emin ently the season of good-will, the Fes tival of Unselfishness, and above all, the Festival of the Child. All this points to a fact which reasonable people will.be glad to recall that the secret of happi ness is to think of the happiness of others.. To put the matter quite phil osophically and in a way which ex perience a tholtsantd times conllfirmns, one gets happiness by not seeking it. WVe find it by thinking of duty, and simply being kind to others. If this spirit were universal. what a diflerent world it would be!

THE IRISH FREE STATE. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 23 December 1921
THE IRISH FREE STATE. Ireland's claim for self-deterlnina tion has beeon iact in a fair and generous spirit, and all of us will be thankful to see the Emerald Isle en joying .a peace to which it has been for many years a complete stranger. The story goes that an Irishman who emigrated to America went tip ]3road wHy, -New York, excitedly swiligiig his arms about like a windmlill. whereupon a citizen stopped him and rcmonstrated., "But," said Pat, "1 thought this was tile land.of liberty." "So it is," was the answer, "but your liberty ends where mily nose be gins."- That's a whole philosophy in a few words. The sole remainiFng difficulty about Ireland concerns the boundaries and finances of Ulster, and it is expected these can be ad iusted. The status that is good enough for Australia should be good enough for Ireland, and nothing now remains .but to forget and forgive, and pull together for the advance ncnt of the latest British Dominion.

The pro grantune rendered was wholly by school children, and a highly credit able performance resulted. Mr. W. D. Davic occupied the chair, and Mrs. F. Richardson accompanied on the piano. The evening was opened with a pianoforte solo, entitled "Simple Aven." by Miss Hazel Moore. Then followed "The Wind Song," by the infants, given with such effect that the wind was borne down the hall to strains of music. Following this, the boys of Grade 111. and IV. displayed some fine vocal talent in "The Cruise of the Old Armt Chair," drawing front the chairman the remark that tlhe future . of Cowes lshould be hg;eatly lightened by the presence of such fine tmale song-birds. A dialogue by two girls and a boy provided a pleasant change. An ac tion song, "Busy .Crpenters." by in fants, showed four boys in carpen ters' aprons busy at woodwork, whilst a cho...
