(To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 24 November 1939
(To the Editor) Sir,-It would appear that in re porting the numerical strength of-my group as 81 .financial members and five other workers I have given of fence to some who do not know or understand the status of the "other workers." Anyone may, become a member of the Red. Cross Society on payment of an, annual subscription of 2/, but every financial member is not neces sarily a worker, although their sub scriptions are ;the necessary "sinews -of wair. . There is no distinction made,and no slur cast on the "other workers." In fact, these five have been invalu able to me, and included in their numn ber are my hus'band and son. I make no apologies.--Yours . etc., BETTY F. TAYLOR. Groiup Representative, Frankston.

CORRESPONDENCE BRAWL ECHO (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 24 November 1939
CORRESPONDENCE -a--e BRAWL ECHO (To the Editor) Sir,-Apropos of the much discuss ed brawl which took place outside (and I enmphasise "outside") the Wat tle Palais on November 11, there is obviously another side to the question which is entitled to ni hearing. The sponsor of the Palais has no hesitation in submitting for general knowledge and to the people who wish to make Frankston, the popular, decent resort we all desire it to be, that the hall under his control is as well managed as possible. The cloak rooms for ladies and gentlemen are supervised by paid attendants and another attendant is in charge of the general conduct of the floor. I would inform "Clean 'Em Up" that this gentleman is very capable and ready to deal with any conduct he may deem unsuitable. No liquor is ever consumed on the premises. The Chelsea bus leaves Frankston 'by 12.15-the Wattle Palais, as far as the management is concerned, is a "black-out." "Clean 'Em Up" strongly hints that the affair under review wa...

BEER AT DANCES. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 24 November 1939
BEER:AT DANCES. : (To the Editor.) Sir,-In: ;rference to: the letter in your paper: on the 17th inst., signed I 'Clean ,'Em Up," I wish to state that the blame -should: not rest on the fact of a .bus. conveying- passengers from Edlthvale. and Chelsea. The buses. were not the only conveyances park ed 'outside the dance hall. -There were cars and trucks from other paits of the district which bring people who regularly patronise the local dances. As this is' of interest to me, "Clean 'Em Up" is quite cor rect in believing liquor is not allow ed on the buses, under no considera tion whatever has it been allowed. What of the supply of liquor which appears to be obtainable in the vicin ity .of the dance hall? The people involved in the disturbance were not passengers in the. buses that night, as the buses were ready to leave when the. disturbance was noticed, and no one was allowed to leave their seats. Perhaps if "Clean 'Em Up" was to travel on the ,buses he would see for 'himself how ca...
