TURF TATTLE PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE-LINE MEN AND HORSES FLEMINGTON PROSPECTS REVIEWED [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 3 November 1939
TURF TATTLE PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE LINE .MEN AND HORSES FLEMINGTON PROSPECTS REVIEWED (By The Meteor) So far as the spring racing carnival has progressed, "down-the-line" trainers, jockeys and horses have at least held their own, and indications are that some of the richest plums to be won at the Flemington meeting will be coming out this way. More unlikely things than Harry Bamber's bonny little mare Rivette achieving the unique Caulfield and Melbourne Cup double have happened in the racing world. She was a cer tainty beaten in the Moonee Valley Cup. After losing a number of lengths at the start and having to be checked more than once, it speaks volumes for her ability and courage that she should finish within a length of the winner. I have heard it said that the two hard races she had in the Caul field and Moonee Valley Cups are likely to have a detrimental effect on Rivette, but it can be taken from here that she looks just as fresh and well as she has done at any time pre viously. ...

WEDDING BELLS BURGESS—PHILLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 3 November 1939
WEDDING BELLS BURGESS-PHILLIPS. A very pretty wedding ceremony was performed at the Methodist Church on Saturday by Rev. G. A. Osmond, when Cyril, eldest son of the late Mr Burgess and Mrs Bur gess, of Preston, was married to Isobel, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs Phillips, of Stanley street, Frankston. The bride was an attractive figure in her frock of magnolia satin thread cloque with tulle and veil to match. The veil was held in place with a halo of orange blossom, and she carried a sheaf of cream and pink gladioli. Her bridesmaids were MIisses Joy and Lorna Phillips, cou sins of the bride, and Miss Dorothy Hansen, -niece of the bride. They wore frocks of bitter-sweet pink georgette with muffs and vi11s to match. The best man was Mr Mudford and the groomsman MAr Keith Phil lips and Mr Harry Hardstone. The reception was held in the Wat tle Cafe, where 100 guests were en tertained. The bride chose a brown costume with hat and accessories to match for her going away outfit, with s...
BEEF BAN PREMIER WON'T RECEIVE DEPUTATION [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 3 November 1939
BEEF BAN . PREMIER WON'T RECEIVE DEPUTATION Apparently we chirped a little too soon. On October 20 we twit ted thie Beef Barons in our open letter regarding the likely lifting of the ban. But Premier Dunstan has refused to receive a deputa tion representative of dozens of municipalities (including this one) urging that cattle from the Board of Works' farm at Werri. bee be allowed tol come on to the market. Mr Dunstan is not interested. He refuses to hear the reasons why the people who are not influencedi by the Beef Barons demand that this first quality meat should he allowed to be sold. This is one of the weaknesses of our doemocracy. Members of Parlia ment are elected by the people, and, having attained a seat in Parliament, and perhaps.a very lucrative Cabinet post--they proceed to put on a spe cious strong-man act, instead of lis tening to the demands of the people, and not only listening to them, but giving heed to them. We have consistently praised Pre mier Dunstan for his wor...
THIS MODERN ART A NEW RACKET? [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 3 November 1939
THIS MODERN ART A NEW RACKET? Although we do not profess to bc art critics, we do claim to know th&lt; difference between the art that repro. duces a beautiful scene and the so. called art that reproduces or attempts to reproduce a crude and often un pleasant theme. What is behind this Surrealistic art? Why \nre its fol lowers, attempting to illustrate prin ciples that should be left to experi enced writers? It is difficult even to guess, unless, of course,. those who call themselves modernists have found that it pays to be different, and to give people a shock, even if that shock has as its foundation a subject that is well-not talked a'bout in mix ed company. It was amusing to watch the lec turers at a recent exhibition when they attempted to "keep the party clean,' 'so to speak, when answering questions concerning some of the least conventional paintings. We even heard one old lady say, after gazing at' L'Homme Fleur for some time: "Let's move on to something less dis gus...
