Moonlight Motor Trip to 'Moondah.' A NOVEL OUTING. At the invitation of Mr. Jas. Grice, of 'Moondah,' the Automo- bile Club of Victoria held a run to Frankston last Saturday. In the afternoon a 'flexibility' contest was held on the fine stretch of road commencing at 'Nyora' gate. The conditions of the contest were that the competitors should drive a dis- tance of half a mile at slowest speed on top gear, neither brake nor clutch to be used; then half a mile at top speed. The slowest time (in seconds) to be divided by the fast est time (in seconds), and the highest resultant product to be declared the winner. Should the clutch be slipped, or in any way interferred with, or the brake ap- plied or car stopped, it would dis- qualify. A flying start of 100 yards was permitted, but no form of self-starter could be employed. The prizes were trophies to the value of £5 5s, the gift of Cr. Count von Horn. The competition was very interesting and was watched by a good number of spectators, th...

The Churches. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 9 March 1912
The Churches. The following appears in this month's St. Paul's Church notes : AN IMPORTANT CHANGE.: For some time it has been appar- ent that the work of the Church in this district needed reconstruction. Frankston, for instance, is growing in importance, and the vestry has felt that the vicar should be present. at more of the Sunday services. The vicar was informed a year ago by the Diocesan authorities that his charge over Somerville might only be temporary. The progress of the financial affairs of the Church at Frankston and Somerville, combined with the. starting of the work at the Downs, has opened the way for a change, and the visit of Archdeacon Hindley last week was made the occasion for effecting one. The Frankston Vestry had pro- mised to raise their contribution to the stipend on the understanding that of the Vicar .....and it was understood that the Downs was now in a position to con- tribute towards the stipend. So that, with the approval of the respective Vestries and ...
