PICTURE NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 January 1922

PICTURE NOTES Despite the unsuitability of the evening for indoor entertain ment, there was a large atten dance at the Frankston Pictures last Saturday night. The first feature, "Appearances," was an English-made production, with David Powell, Mary Dibley and Marjorie Hurne in the principal roles. The picture, which showed the folly of pretence, was in it self sufficient evidence in sup port of the claim that Australian and English-made picture is the equal of the Yankee product. "A Wise Fool," however, was very interesting, being adapted from one of Sir Gilbert Parker's virile tales of old Quebec Eugene's Gilded Lies The last mid-week pictures, for a time; at least, were presented last Wednesday night. "After Midnight," one of Selznick's re leases, - depicted the underworld of New York, wherein Conway Tearle made a valiant rescue of Zena Keefe-who looked charm ing enough to be- worth rescue ing! Eugene O'Brien played the hero in .''Gilded Lies," and, after many thrilling incidents,...

AI-STIN GS. By Our Special Reporter The annual meeting of the Hast ings Branch of the Returned Sol diers' League held on Tuesday, Goth inst., had to be adjourned. The seven members present did not consider-themselves sufficiently representative Io elect new office bearers and draw up plans for the use of the £63 now standing to the credit of the branch. The business was therefore adjourned till Tuesday, 31st January, when all returned men ought to attend to look after their own interests. The returned soldier has innum erable friends, whom, however, he .will soon lose should he show no appreciation of the friendship and interest bestowed on him. lHe has a duty to perform, through his -League, -in-caring for the -widows and orphans-of his "cobbers" dead on the fields of, France. He has also to care for his less fortunate brothers here in Victoria, and not leave them "entirely to the tender mercies of the outsiders.

CARRUM. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 January 1922

CARRUIi. By our Special Reporter. The fire at Seaford created a good deal of excitement on Sun day last, and was one of the main topics of the town during the week. The first intimation came through bl phone to Mr. E. B. Giles, J.P., from Mr. Howell at about L30, with a request to send as zsany men as possible. The fre bell was rung, and soon the brig ade and reel were on the road. Another urgent message was sent to say the fire was spreading, and to bring what appliances we could. There was hardly any men left here, all kinds of conveyances being used to carry them. It was a great relief that in about an hour's time the wind had changed, and all danger was over. Great credit is due to the locals for the way they turned out and worked so hard, in many instances leaving their midday meal It is said that the fire commenced through the carelessness of some motor camp era., _vews hlas cL:aiome troug' ' Irom Daylesford that owing to the pro mptness and courage of one of our dizens, Mr. A...

SERIOUS FIRE AT SEAFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 January 1922

SERIOUS FIRE AT SEA FORD. By Our Special Reporter. lastl Sunday, for the second time within three weeks the fore shore has been on fire. This fre occurred as the result of the care less use of fire by a visitor, w?ao as one of the community, has every liberty on the foreshore, but who, instead of spending 3d. in a quart of boiling water, preferred to risk burning Seaford out by lighting a fire in a kerosene tin. The fire quickldy got out of con trol, and in. a few moment acres of valuable ti-tree were a seeth ing mass of blood-red flame, belching up immense columns of black smoke. The alarm signal was quickly noted by the Franks ton and Carrum fire brigades, who promptly turned out- in full strength, and aided by a very large body of residents and visi tors, were quickly at work. The Frankston brigade's hose was for a while a useless possession, ow ing to the difficulty of locating a fire plug to screw it to. However, after a deal of digging, a plug was eventually unearthed at the -...

Extra Police. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 January 1922

Extra ,'olice. For some weeks past an extra policeman has been stationed at Frankston. Ordinarily Senior Constable Bray and a mounted trooper have the entire super vision of this extensive district, and the task is more than they can accomplish satisfactorily. The multiplicity of "extras" now tacked on to the police in the way of collecting statistical in formation, and obtaining data for other Government depart ments, keeps the mounted man fairly well employed, with the result that street patrol work and supervision over the fore shore and beaches is necessarily restricted. The appointment of an extra constable was urgently needed, and the advantage to the town has been most marked. the new officer is continually on street duty, and kpowledge of this fact has had an obvious effect on the conduct of ex uberant spirits, who in the past have made liberty the excuse for licence. Although many thou sands of people have visited Frankston during the last couple of months, there has been a...
