Abolish the Dole! Readers' Views Wide-spread approval has been expressed of our article on the unemployment problem. It is impossible to publish all of the letters received at this office, but the following is a selection. We appreciate the Interest and sincerity of the writers, and urge upon them to be come real Apostles in the cause of Justice. (To the Editor.) Slr,-you are inviting a frank opinion on the question of the dole, but how to condense it within the I scope of the columns of your news- c paper is a problem. What is the t dole?

Turning I to the Century dictionary and Ency- I clopaedia for the 'purpose of refresh- c ing the memory, I find that the ori- I ginal meaning is a "deal," a "divi- I dend," an "apportionment," a "share."

FOOTBALL FOOTBALL TOPICS. PEARCEDALE DOWN FRANKSTON B. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 26 May 1939
FOOTBALL --0 FOOTBALL TOPICS. PEARCEDALE DOWN FRANKSTON_ B. After a meritorious win at Dromana the previous week, Frankston Juniors suffered an unexpected reversal of form at Pearcedale on Saturday. Shortly after half-time Pearcedale were 10 goals in front, and no effort of Frankston could reduce that lee way. The standard of football rarely rose above. "ruck and tumble" level. Heavy buminps were given and taken freely, but there were no spiteful in cidents. Pearcedale's familiarity with their own. ground should mean an advan tage bf half-a-dozen goals over every visiting team. Little has been done to the arena th the past three years to make it even passably good. The attention of the League, which re centiy iii?olibited future play on Keasl Park reserve (Caiarim), could well be centred on this ground. Pearcedale dominated the ruck and centre; and, wi?th the exception of Mc Comb, oiitmarked Frankston. Siillivan, at full-forward, played fine football, aiid secured many goals froni s...

SEAFORD OUTCLASSED. Frankston was superior to Seaford Carrum at Frankston do Saturday.. As in the jrevious week, the Frank ston 'back line was almost impreg nable and limited the opposition's, tally of goals to four. Final scores were: Seaford-Carrum 4.7; Frankston 24.14. For Frankston, Prendergast re ceived the best and fairest award. With Avery he was a thorn in the side of the yellow and blacks. These two rovers, now that Lathan (Naval Depot) has transferred to New South Wales ,are outstanding in the competition, and are always ipotential match winners. On Saturday their handling of the wet ball left nothing to be desired. Others who played consistent foot ball were Harry, Peters, McComb, Staff, .Clapham and Rosenbroch. Seaford, despite the difference in scores, was by no means out of the picture, and several players held their own with Frankston's best. Seaford-Carrum's outstanding play ers were Gunn, Alk, A. Davage, Dar roch, Pritchard and Hawking.. Goal kickers were: F. Favies...
