Frankston's Good Name Endangered by Sunday Conduct [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 3 November 1939
Frankston's Good Name -o Oo----- Endangered by Sunday Conduct. A person would be totally blind if he failed to see that Sunday in Frankston is fast deteriorating into a day of unrestricted "booz. ing." In making this statement we are in no way reflecting on the police, who simply have to administer the law as it stands. Jleither do we wish to ally ourselves with that section of the community that favors the impossible prohibition of liquor. We do say, however, that the con dtct in Frankston is becoming worse each week-end and is giving plenty of ammunition to those who do favor prohibition. With the majority of ratepayers. the Standard favors tem perance, even. on Sundays. At this period of the year the streets are packed with cars, yet one can visit the beaches and find very few peo ple there. Where are the people? A visit to any hotel would find it pack ed with "bone ,fide" travellers, out for a joy-ride from Melbourne, to get a drink. Probably they are just within the law, but th...

Let's Write a Letter [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 3 November 1939
Let's Write a Letter oOo Dear Reader,-It would be wrong to attach any exaggerated signifi cance to it, but the negotiations by Japan for the purchase of more Australian wool and wheat are at least an indication that the way may be open for a return to the old understanding between the British and Japanese peoples. British purchases of our primary products do not preclude Australian trade with othe' nations, and although the amount available will be dependent on British requirements this may form the basis of a mutually useful agreement between Austnalia and a good customer. country. The occasion has provided an opportunity for an important pro. nouncement by the Japanese Consul-General: that the Anti-Comintern Pact is dead. The statement is none the less reassuring though the fact is obvious. Yours, THE STANDARD.
Australia's Concern [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 3 November 1939
Australia's Concern oOo A glance at the disposition of former German colonies is the quickest method of perceiving how Australia has a direct interest in the successful outcome of this war in addition to her loyalty to Britain Since the outbreak of hostilities Herr Hitler has not disguised the recovery of these colonies as one of his chief aims-categorically set out inl his sham "peace" offer. With the exception of those in South Africa, these territories are all close to Australia: New Guinea and the Western Pacific Islands are administered by her, Samoa is held under mandate by New Zealand. Then, of course, there are the Marshall and Caroline Islands, now administered by Japan. With any of these held by a hostile ,power. athwart our trade routes, the Nazi myth of "encirclement" would be come a reality for us.
