MORE AND MORE CARS PARKING CONGESTIOiN Frankston's first foretaste of summer has brought with it also an indication of the amount of traffic that will pass through the town in the next few months. The presence of fast.moving traffic through the town and along Pt. Nepean road, which is freely ad mitted to bet the busiest highway in the State, is' in itself some thing of a menace, but when the road' is further congested by the haphazard parking of indiscrimin ate motorists, the position be tion becomes positively danger ous. . Cr Pratt's; statement to the last council meeting that "motorists' ideas of parking. in Frankston were dis graceful" would have met with the wholehearted approval of anyone who walked through the main street on Sunday evening.

Ruin to Fruitgro ers - oOo Inadequate Governmaent Allowance The action of the Commonwealth Government in commandeering the entire fruit crops and in making an allowance of only 2/ on 75 per cent. of the production would ;mean the, ruination. 'of.- Peninsuld frultgrowers, according to speakers. at the councll :meeting on Friday night. . . " Crs.
