CHILDREN'S SPORTS AT FRANK LIN. The annual gathering of school children at Franklin established another record, both in regard' to the number of schools and the total num ber of young competitors taking parti in the races.

FRANKLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 26 April 1934

FRANKLIN. A largely attended mass was' held at the Roman Catholic Church, Franklin, the officiating priest being Rev. W. A.' Fitzpatrick.

A large number ox beautnui norai tributes was placed on the basement of the Soldiers' Memorial, the sur roundings of which have at last been I put in creditable order. When the lawn and' shrubs grow on this reserve it will present a pleasing appear ance, and completely remove the I impression that the Franklin people I were unmindful of their obligations to those whose memory the memorial was intended to keep alive.

Sally,' . the most ambitious musical extravaganza ever recorded by British studio cameras. There are six exceptional song numbers in 'Aurit Sally,' one of which is 'If I Had Napoleon's Hat,' sung by Miss Courtneidge in her inimitable manner, standing be tween three grand pianos. 'Another is Phyllis Clare's 'I Want a Fair and Square Man.' The climax of the picture (which opens at His Ma jesty's Theatre this Saturday), is a scene of gay abandon, in which the dancers at the night club move through a kaledioscopic scene, the ef fect of which is enhanced, by the re lease, of thousands of balloons. The supporting feature is an amazing production...
