CRICKET Eildon Weir Wins Premiership EILDON WEIR v. MARYSVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 30 March 1951
Eildon Weir Wins E Premiership B bi EILDON WEIR v. MARYSVILLE. At the end of the first day's play d Eildon Weir appeared to be in a very serious position, having lost four wic kets for three runs. Play was resumed on Easter Mon day, with George Deas and P. Cre ton at the crease. Deas went second ball, for one, and Creadton stuck on and knocked up 18. This fortified the Weir a little, and S. Long tallied 15. d C. Till followed and obtained seven runs, but J. Sawers went for six. Bert e Taylor, the well known left-hand bowler, made things happier and mer rier for the undefeated team by add- i ing 24. At this stage of the game Marysville had to make 71 to win, but collapsed in the second innings to a garner 46 only, due chiefly to the ex cellent bowling of Bert Taylor, who collected six wickets for 26 runs. d The fielding of the Eildon Weir men was splendid; they were on their toes throughout both days.r Eildon Weir won the Premiership by 29 runs-the first premiership se cured by them ...

ALEXANDRIAN ABROAD. Extracts of letter written by Miss Rose Collis:— [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 30 March 1951
ALEXANDRIAN ABROAD. Extracts of a letter written by Miss Rose Collis :- 20/12/50.-I left Victoria station this morning on the Blue Train, trav elling second class. These continental trains are the only ones in England where you can travel second. My seat was reserved-very comfortable dun lopillo and upholstered in green. It took nearly two hours to reach Dover, and the country en route looked ra. ther bleak, as snow was still lying on the ground. However, that did not detract from its charm for me. At Dover there was the tedious business of passports, customs, etc., and the Customs officer counted my English notes to make sure I was only taking £5 out of the country. The channel steamer "Invicta" is very modern and comfortable, and the crossing (11/ hours) was quite smooth, despite the threatening weather. I had my lunch on board. Calais must have been a shambles during the war, as there are large patches of it still not tidied up; but someone told me it is much better now than just...

"Summer Period" Extended [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 6 April 1951
"Summer Period" Extended In view of the continued dry spell in the ,south. western and central portions of the State, the "Sum mer" period has been extended to 14th April in various areas. These include Region 12, embracing the Shires of Alexandra, Mansfield and Yea. Conditions regarding burning off, etc., are therefore, unchanged. At the coming Federal elections it is recognised that the outstanding feature in importance is the election of the Senate. It will be conceded by all people who have the welfare of Australia at heart that the frustra tion by the Labour majority in the Senate prevented the Menzies' Go vernment, who received an over whelming mandate at the last elec tions, from completing legislation to combat the many serious problems facing Australia to-day. It is good to see the whole-hearted co-operation extended in this fight by the Hon. A. Fadden, leader of the Fedbral Country Party, and his mem bers, first in agreeing to the Prime Minister, Mr. Menzies, delivering a ...

THORNTON-ACHERON VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 6 April 1951
THORNTON-ACHERON VALLEY. With the cricket season ended and quite a few players now free to con centrate on their football, the empha sis is. now on training. With Coach Greenlands in charge, the players are opening up with P.T., which is far more suitable at the commencement of the season, when the grounds are generally in a very dry and hard con· dition, and means less risk of injury. The influx of talent throughout the Waranga League this year means that the public should see the football at. the highest standard since prewar. Thornton have signed up several pro mising players, and their form will be watched closely by the keen eyes of the selectors. Another welcome return is Alan Boyle, who, in the R.A.A.F., is now stationed at Point C-,k. Most people remember Alan as one of the best back pocket players to play in the Upper Goulburn, and, if he still re tains his old form, will be one of the best in the Waranga League. The enthusiasm shown by younger players so far at training ma...
