CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

CRICKET. Saturday, December 24th, was ob- served as a holiday by the Phillip Is- land Cricket Association. On the Cowes' ground a practice match was played, when a team cap- tained by C. Clark proved too good for a team for that skippered by G. Jenner. On Monday, December 26th, Cowes played an eleven of visitors from Isle of Wight Hotel. The visitors came in full force and very confident of victory, one member of their team bc- ing a first grade player. Cowes won the toss and elected to field, as they had only half a team present. Hall, bowling with the wind, soon had the batsmen in difficulties, and se- cured one wicket for each over. Brown was the only batsman who showed much real form. His 45, in- cluded 8 fours and 1 six. Thirty-two of his runs were scored off one over from Findlay. Ten overs sufficed to get the whole team out. Hall and Findlay not only did all the bowling, but shaped well with the bat for the home team. The former's 42 included 3 fours and 2 sixes, whilst the l...

Phillip Island [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

Phillip Island By Our Special Reporter. On New Year's Sunday. at St. Phillip's, at the evensong service a special programme of carols and songs was rendered by an augmented choir, under the leadership of Mr W. Dawson Davie. Miss E. Tootell sang finely, "The Birth of Dawn," and Miss Wotherspoon, the poss- essor of a glorious contralto voice, gave a beautiful sympa- thetic rendering of Liddle's "Abide with Me." The choir was heard to advantage in several old English carols, show- ing musicianly training and intelligent interpretation. The congregational singing of selec- ted hymns was most impressive. For the first time in the history of the Island a Governor of Vic toria has come into summer resi dence at Cowes. During their sojourn in Victoria their Excellencies, the Earl and Countess of Stradbroke, have visited every beauty spot in the State and the selection of Cowes for the Xmas and New Year vacation is taken by the Islanders as a great compliment and an in- telligent appreciatio...

SOMERVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

SOMERVILLE. A very pleasant and successful an- nual social and prize distrubution, in connection with St. Andrew's Sunday School, was held in the hall on 19th December. It was also made the oc- casion to say farewell to the vicar of tht parish, Rev. F. E. Watts, M.A., who has been appointed to Broken Hill. A fine gathering of children, with their parents and friends attend- ed, each one being out to make the evening an enjoyable one. The vicar presided. An interesting programnme was gone through, and was thorough- ly enjoyed. During an interval Mr. S. West took the opportunity of ex- pressing, on behalf of the congrega- tion, their sorrow at losing the ser- vices of their vicar, who had, during his ministry amongst them, earned their united esteem and regard. Un- doubtedly the steady and continued growth of the church was a tribute to the strenuous work Mr. Watts had put in. We all wish him God speed and abundant success in his new sphere of labor. On behalf of the congregation, and...

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. Enormous crowds of people visited Frankston on New Year's Day. They came from all directions. In addition to the many hundreds who arrived by the special trains, scores of motor vehicles were in evidence. A note- worthy addition to the usual holiday crowd was the contingent from the Cranbourne side, who took full advan- tage of the fine road now connecting with Frankston. Frankston holds her place securely as the premier bayside resort. It possesses many natural advantages, which leave would-be rivals very far bchind. It was only necessary to view the packed beaches and fore- shore reserves on New Year's Day to realise Frankston's great popularity with holiday makers. Frankston, as a town, is not with- out its deficiencies. The drawbacks do not affect the visitor so much as the permanent resident—particularly busi- ness people. The absence of a bank for instance, is a big drawback, and shopkeepers were greatly inconveni- enced by being unable to make de- posi...

LANGWARRIN. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

LANGWARRIN Miss Adelaide Upton has joined the teaching staff of the Education De- partment. Mr. McCubbin, the inventor of   the Morris-McCubbin roller for the eradication of ferns, is now, we are pleased to state, thoroughly recovered from his recent accident. The friends of Mr. A. J. Patten will be pleased to learn that he has now taken a decided turn for better health. About a month ago his condition be- came so grave that it was deemed necessary to remove him to the city under the care of the family physician. Although having no notewortlly event to chronicle, I may be excused from encroaching on your valuable columns in wishing all the compli- nents of the season, and a most pros- porous New Year. As far as the dis- trict is concerned a prosperous era is in sight. The mild weather experi- enced lately has been of great benefit to the pastures, the orchards, and the vegetable gardens, with the result that the Chtristmas holidays saw such a combination of the good thi...

HONORS FOR SOMERVILLE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

HONORS FOR SOMERVILLE SCHOOL. The prize presented by the Austra- lian Natives' Association for competi- tion among State Schools for the best kept garden, was won by Somerville School. At a function held at Some- ville prior to the holidays, and alreadcy referred to in these columns., Mr. Geo. E. Shepherd, snr., welcomed the president of the A.N.A., Mr. Rust, who attended to formally make the presentation. Mr. Rust said tihe Somerville School was rightly honored in thus securing the coveted position. He had seen their garden, and considered it a splendid one indeed. For the purpose of encouraging the project, the schools had spent the amount of between £3000 and £4000. This amount had been raised by the schools themselves with the exception of £300, which had been granted by the Government. This school had undoubtedly a good man in Mr. Uren,. who had done a deal of strenuous and patient work in order to bring the garden up to its present state. As an incentive to the schools, the A....

FERRYING THE HOLIDAY MAKERS. Excellent transport arrangements were made by the railways to carry the many hundreds of visitors to Phillip and French Islands in Wes- ternport. The s.s. 'Genesta" carried on Xmas Eve a total number of passengers exceeding a thousand, without delay to time table or mis- hap of any kind, and the courtesy of Skipper J. Clarke and his crew was remarked on frequently. Throughout the Xmas and New Year a special time table was in force, enabling con- nections to Melbourne and Western- port and Island towns to be made at more frequent intervals than usual.

SCHOOL BREAK-UP. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

SCHOOL BREAK-UP. On Friday evening last the Cowes' Hall was crowded, on the occasion of the children's night. Mr. W. D. Davie occupied the chair.   Proceedings opened, with games of musical arms, in which the eagerness of thie girls to obtain partners caused some fine amusement and a fad or two. Following this the children sang. After some more games and a chil- dren's dance, two school recitations were given. The first, "A Gentleman of Ten," by Master Claude Ward, the second, "Somebody's Mother," by Miss Jean Gall. The chairman then warned those present that the evening was essentially a school gathering, and therefore the committee had re- quested the head teacher to write a report on the year's work at the school. Mr. Hatfield, the head tea- cher then read the report. Just at this stage it was announced that Santa Claus was just arriving, and all was hushed and every eye atten- tive as he came in with faltering step and slow. First announcing that he had come a long ...

SKETCHES OF COWES AT CHRISTMAS. O, THE BATHS! [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

SKETCHES OF COWES AT CHRISTMAS.   O, THE BATHSI By "Homo.", I have been out motoring., The day is hot, and the roads somewhat dusty. What better, then, than to put a towel round my neck, a swimming costume over my arm, and proceed to the baths? It is customtary, on the island, to boom places called grand sights, and to charge here for a car to take visitors to see them. I had just been for one of these memorable trips., and had returned mi- nus the small sum of 5/-. But, now, behold, I htave airrived at the baths, and am beginning to realise that here, right at hand and unadvertised, are the best sights, or most remarkable views of Nature we can hope to find. We might visit the Nobbies, staying even till dusk to catch a glance of penguins leaving the water, and marching in line to their holes, where they suddenly disappear and are lost to sight for another 24 hours. The novelty of the sight may appeal to you, but think of the mo- notony of it all. Penguins may be classe...

BY THE WAY. HAPPY NEW YEAR! [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

BY THE WAY. HAPPY NEW YEAR! Health, wealth, and happiness to all readers of the "Standard!" The   world has made a distinct advance within the last twelve months, and even the most confirmed pessimist must admit it. We are nearer a set- tlcment of the Irish problem. The testimony of ecclesiastics that 90 per cent. of the people in the South are favorable to ratification of the treaty is very heartening. The flood of rhetoire in the Dail is a mere safety- valve, not "sound and fury signifying nothing," but a good, wholesome operation, a thunderstorm clearing the air. Then, too, there has been mark- ed and substantial progress at Wash- ington. Britain leads the way in sub- marining submarines, and if France is not as willin' as Barkis at present she may yet think better of it. Thirdly, as the parsons say, Lenin is lecturing the Soviet Congress on the folly of civil war and communist' exclusive- ness. He says it is not enough to be a communist--one must have common sense a...

THE PENINSULA WATER SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

THE PENINSULA WATER SCHEME. The supply of water to the Morning- ton Peninsula, one of the largest urban systems of its kind in the world, as the length of pipe lines throughout the Pen- insula runs into several hundreds of miles—will shortly be completed by the Water Commission. Through the   scheme the Naval Base at Flinders and 22 towns will be given a reticulated supply. In addition to 10 miles of the main supply race, which conveys to Beaconsfield reservoir the head-waters of the Toomuc Creek, the temporary source of supply for the scheme pending an extension to tap the ultimate source of supply (the Bunyip River and its tributories) water is delivered from that storage through main pipe lines, ranging from a foot to two feet in diameter, over a widely scattered area. Water   travels through these pipes from Bea- consfield reservoir to a large distributing storage at Somerville and thences, via Frankston, Carrum and Chelsea to As- pendale, a distance of...

FRANKSTON SPORTS. THE GATE EXCEEDS £100. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 January 1922

FRANKSTON SPORTS. THE GATE EXCEEDS £100. Notwithstanding the fact that the £75 Sheffield Handicap had been eli- minated from the programme, owing to the dispute existing in athletic cir- cles, the Frankston Athletic Sports Club was greeted with one of the largest attendances yet seen at the New Year's Day Sports. The gate tak- ings reached £101/15/8, which must be considered extremely satisfactory. The Metropolitan Returned Soldiers' Brass Band was present, but the musi- cal fare supplied was much below ex- pectations. The President (Mr. T. J. M.cMur- tric) was the most pleased man on the ground at the success of the gath- ering, for there were not wanting   those who foreshadowed doom to the   club for its temporary elimination of the big race. Mr. McMurtric, by rea- son of his genial personality, made an ideal president. As secretary, Mr. W. Wilson Young left nothing to be de- sired, and the veteran secretary car- ried out his arduous duties in a most abl...
