FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 24 September 1914
FOOTBALL. The final match of the season was - utterly spoiled by the heavy gale which brought along in its train a super abundance of dust and grit. The spectators took advantage of the lee side of the galvanised iron fence, while at times players were unable to see the ball in its progress. The special train arrived at 3.15, but it was 10 minutes past 4 befor the last local straggler reached the ground. Even then, Quamby were a couple of players short of the required number, and, in addition, were without the services of the Gross brothers, Baylis, Barry, Meney, Raff and Tim Carrutheis, all of whomshowed capital form throughout the season. Boort also lacked some of their chief - players, and taken all in all, for affinal . the match can be put done as a failure.

The Kaiser's • plans assuredly provide for using it somehow. But its use will come very late in the war—when Germany has bases on the Eng . lish Channel,-and is able to talk of invading England ; or when Germany has been through its landdefeats, and needs to venture everything.upon ite navy. Ger man bi£ guns have done damage on land ; but they didn't speak . with much effect in the battle of Heliogoland Bay. There were enough . German guns there to sink at least one British ship, but our ships were practically un damaged.' Three Spanish -naval officers, recently finished a special course of privileged observation in the German Navy. . This, is what they said:—"The German Navy is designed to make one • swift, desperate, fierce- attack, and risk all on the result." ....

MELBOURNE LETTER. (i'i'Cm. our Special Correspond-nt.) i Six years .agn we - were vieing ,wifch each other to do honor to the American men-oMfafsmeu, who came with the White .Fleet. • They wore--feted and fussed over and .given a' good time generally i-n the usual jiecepiance of the term.

Can it Ve said that we are doing the same , for the splendid fellows who are in training at- Broadmeadows. pre paratory t0 going to fight for war that dwarfs all other wars in history?

WAVE-MAKING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 24 September 1914
WAVE-MAKING MACHINE. A machine lias been invented which will make, to your liking, any one ol a half-dozen or more diflorent kinds of waves—ocean waves, long rolling billows, short choppy waves, ana, among others, the white-cap variety. It is possible to luivo a real Jililioi'u suri just by switching on an electric motor, which sets lour plungers motion. These plungers work up and down in tho water, and the diiierent ways the plungers are worked make the different kinds of waves.

The diiierent combinations of the plungers, result in. tho different kinds'of waves.
