THE DEFENCE OF AUSTRALIA. £100 TOWARDS AN AERIAL FLEET. (To the Editor of "The Advertiser.") [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 15 June 1914

THE DEFENCE OF AUS TRALIA. £100 TOWARDS AN AERIAL FLEET. (To the Editor of "The Advertiser.") SIR,-It is universally acknow ledged that Australia's weakness from a defence point of view lies in its enormous coast-line, to pro tect which-with battleships would entail an expendi are crippling even to a European Power. This great coast-line lies absolutely unprotected and open for invasion by any hostile Power, for in the event of war the units of the Aus tralian fleet would have as much as they could do to defend the principal seaports. It is therefore imperative that means be taken to guard the coast-line without with drawing the naval fleet from its natural duties : The defence of the seaports and the protection of shipping. It will be readily ad mitted that a highly effective way to guard our lonely coast without huge expenditure is to possess a well-organised fleet of up-to-date aeroplanes. There is no method of warfare which is so swift to action, or so easy to mobilise-and it is...

PERSONAL. * ---~--- Or F W Fair (one of the Town Riding members), had deoided to re i o this year, as, owing to the large ircroaseo of his businese, and attention to other public matters, he finds his time fully occupied, with scarcely any to spare. The knowledge of his intended retire ment from the Shire Council, however, caused concern to most citizens, for no. body needs be told how Cr Fair has with unremitting energy and devotion been attending to the requirements of the town for the public weal, while not forgetting what was due to the shire generally. Requests have been coming in to him from all quarters, with the earnest desire that he will not retire, but continue in the splendid work which he has been doing for town and people these many years; and so fervent have boon the appeals to him that we may now feel confident that Cr Fair-who in these matters consul's the public and not himself-will again be a candidate at the municipal elections which take place in August next. 1 ...

SHEPPARTON FOOTBALL CLUB. GENERAL MEETING OF PL YERS. A general meeting of players (convened by the committee) of the Shepparton Football Club was held at Nolan's Criterion Hotel on Friday night, when there was a good attendance. Mr W B Hoare, who presided, explained that the object of the committee in convening the meet ing was to get an expression of opinion from the players as to best methods likely to. induce a keener interest being taken by the team in training. Captain T D Lrcy said it seemed impossible for the majority of the players to get away from business in order to train before dark-the days just now being short. After tea, on recent occasions, several of the team had gone to. the ground but could not get proper training attention owing to no lighting faci lities being available. A committeeman : If our fellows are not getting sufficient training, what can the other clubs be doing in this direction ? Captain Darcy : That's all very well just now, but wait till the final...

SELECTING A CANDIDATE—AND THE PEOPLE'S PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 15 June 1914

SELECTING A CANDIDATE- a AND THE PEOPLE'S PARTY. THE Shepparton branch of the People's Party -meets this evening 'to consider the selection of a candidate and arrangements for the Federal elections." That is the wording of the official notili cation; and as ample time will be available from this day to the date of nominations, it may be expected that the members of the party will be given sufficient opportunity to exercise their rights, in contradis tinction from the methods fol lowed about a year ago, and which led to such a great deal of diEsatis faction, and even disaffection among the members. That there will be qlito halifa-dozen candi dates for the coveted Echuca seat may be considered a certainty; and we may look forward to the appearance of the individual who witha certain amount of theatrical ism declares he will go to the roll nolens volens, whether selected or rejected by party. His preference in phrping is for the name "Inde pendent," and as such we should be in a positi...

SETTLEMENT AT SHEPPARTON. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 15 June 1914

SETTLEMENT AT SHEP. PARTON. The closer settlement area at Shop parton, known as the No. 1 Estate, is one of the most satisfactory, and prob ably the most successful of any that has come under the administration of the Water Commission. Many causes have contributed to this result (says the "Ar. gus.") The land charges were not un duly high; the blocks attracted a good class of settlers; the area was within a few miles of the most progressive dis trict in the Goulburn Valley; and, fin ally, those who took up land had the experience of successful fruitgrowere from the Ardmona irrigated settlement to guide them. In these circumstances it is not surprising to find that towards the close of its fourth year the area boars every appearance of prosperity and contentment. There have been failures, but these occurred during the initial development, and the result has been to leave in pos session men who, after doing the heavy pioneering work, are now on the eve of reaping the reward due to the...

ARBOR DAY IN EARNEST. SHRINE OF THE QUEEN OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 15 June 1914

ARBOR DAY IN EARNEST. SHRINE OF THE QUEEN OF FLOWERS, " When do you expect the plants to bloom ?" was the simple query ; and following the words of the popular song, Mr J B Brunton laconically replied " In the spring time." He, as headmaster of the Shepparton State-school was at that moment surveying the results of the labors of about a hundred boys and girls of the upper grades who had been busy planting roses, palms, cannas, and shrubs in the forepart of the building, overlooking Fryers street. That was on Friday after noon last, after having been given during the morning lessons especially on Arbor Day-in celebration of the occasion. The lessons were of a par ticularly bright and interesting nature ; but withal that, the chil dren, numbering upwards of five hundred, were looking forward to the few hours hence when they would be given practical teaching in that beautiful and fascinating art known by the commonplace name, "gardening." There was no portent of rain; nay, the sky was ...

SHEPPARTON SCHOOL RIFLE RANGE. READY FOR THE JUNIOR CADETS. RESULTS OF PASSES—100 PER CENT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 15 June 1914

SHEPPARTON SCHOOL RIFLE RANGE. '------ READY FOR THE JUNIOR CADETS. RESULTS OF PASSES-100 PER CENT. The junior cadets attending the Shepparton State-school have now the satisfaction of knowing that the miniature rifle range in the grounds of the institution is com plete and ready for use. One or two matters required attention, and until repairs were effected the lads had to " keep cool." An inspection of the range shows that it is well suited to the purpose of teaching the young idea how to "shoot." It is at the east end of the play grounds, abutting on Stewart street, and is 25 yards in length. Mr T. H. Prosser, the senior mem her of the tutorial staff, who is in charge of the range, has been very energetic in the matter; and now that everything is to his fancy, the sullenness of heretofore has lied, and when you approach him on the subject he comes up, like Mrs Fezziwig, "one vast substantial smile." No wonder, for though the range was erected long since, it was never used-not fit...

NO-LICENSE LEAGUE. A CHALLENGE THAT WAS NOT ACCEPTED. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 15 June 1914

NO-LICENSE LEAGUE. A CHALLENGE THAT WAS NOT ACCEPTED. The Goulburn Valley No License League held its first annual meet ing at the Methodist School-hall last Monday evening (the Rev Geo Paul presiding), when the report and balance sheet for the year was submitted. After a brief review of what had been done in The past 12 months, the report proceeds : "We should here like to correct a wrong impression which many have regarding nc license, i.e., that we wish to close all the hotels in the district. That is not true. If there is legitimate business in providing accommoda tion for the public, then may they all remain open and prosper. What we want is, as the term implies, no-license to be granted to the keepers of such houses, nor anyone else, to sell alcoholic liquors with in the district. Our reason for this is, because alcohol as served from the public bar is the great est moral and physical foe, and the greatest economic waste in our midst to-day. This being so, we surely have, in a ...
