CRICKET. FOOTSCRAY v vWILLiAMSTOWN. Owing to the rain on the previous Sat urday having necessitated a postponment this game resolved itself into a one day match and as cricket is now played a game of tactics. A perfect wicket had been pre pared and " Slucky ' Simmons, winning the toss, had no hesitation in taking ad vantage of it by sending O'Bricn and Enu merson in to open the locals lirst innings. The former was hampered by ai very bad hand. His partner did not have a chance to get going to any extent as he was caught off Arnold after making 2. " Son " Smith was next and at once became most aggressive. \ith " Shamus " he carried the score to 33 when the latter followed the example of Enlnerson and was out to a catch oft Arnold. Alf, Johannesen tilled the vacancy and this opening gave promnise of a fine innings as he went at the bowling fearlessly for a few overs, but for some ui known reason, he altered his style and played carefully with the result that he was caught and bowled b...

CRICKET. FOOTSCRAY v MALVERN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 November 1914
CRICKET. FOOI'SCRAY v MALVERN. This match requires very little descrip tion as the rain which fell on Saturday tmorning last completely soddened the wicket and made even decent cricket im possible. Fortunately for himself, but decidedly unfortunate for Footscray, A. Dolamlnorc., the Malvern skipper, won the toss and, without hcsitation, decided that the locals should have first use of the wicket. W\ith the exception of O'Blricn 3.1, Son, Smnith 1g and Jackson 9, the local hats men gave a most inglorious display, their efforts to play the " correct game " being of more importance than gettiig runs1 In stead of taking the risks oil a wicket that was getting worse each over, they prefer red to play precisely the sanme strokes as if it was a hard, fast wicket, with the result that they made no runs and got out just the same. Jackson made good in his initial game with the tst eleven, and showed that he knows how to use the bat. O'Brien, although lucky, batted well, whilst Son. Smith led ...

STRAY DOGS. To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 November 1914
STRAY DOGS. - a tho Editor of T II A nv; R'I'IS ?,. Sir,-With your civic improve ments I certainly agree, and in my humble capacity subscribe .o, but there is one growing evil I would like attention drawn to and that is dogs. Shopkeepers often keep them and they are allowed to run loose, the result being that they gather in large numbers and block up the foot paths and make it impossible for business people to keep their shop fronts clean. Last night I paid a visit to the Barkly Theatre the foot path was in a disgraceful state, resi dents often come down from the plains and always bring "Toby" with them. This practice should be stopped and I would suggest that a thorough raid be made on all dogs running loose, They say "Cairo for dogs;" Footscray is well up. Yours &c., A SUFFERER,

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 21 November 1914
It is almost amusing to watch the fate of any councillor who essays to adversely criticise any member of the municipal staff. lie starts off, as Cr Drew did recently, with what appears to be a strong case but as he proceeds he finds that certain of his colleagues, particularly those who have been coun cillors for many years and who have become fully imbued with the sacred principles of red tapoism, are giving him the frozen face. And if he fails to accept the hint and continues to criticise methods of execution and ad ministration he finally discovers that he has brought a hornet's nest about fine indignation, that officers ought to be encouraged; that they are the tar gets for citizens and some unreasonable councillors and generally making it appear that he has been guilty of an altogether cruel and unreasonable at tack. Once caught the critic is wary of being trapped again and so the stalf is able to settle back into the old routine, satisfied that they are safe and convinced doub...
