Toma setti makes a vain and decidpdly poor effort to champion the delay of Frankston councillors in prYvidipg for thile district, whlich has been good to him and others, a suitable grant from the ratepayers' money for the recon struction of the ramshackle local Mechanics' Hall, the property of the !people, or the funds for the erection of a new public hall capable of being, a revenue producer and suitable of meeting the urgent requirements of the district, which has rapidly pro gressed in spite of the inactivity of some of its well-embedded-in-a-grove citizens.

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 26 May 1939
(To the Editor.) Sir,-I was particularly interested in a letter in your last issue over the signature M. ,,C. Tomasetti re the above. This question at long last, through your efforts, is receiving the consid eration it deserves, and may I take this early opportunity of offering a suggestion. Ratepayers may recall that, in the interests of progress, I have persist ently advocated an up-to-date town hall for Frankston. It will be remem bered also that several opportunities have presented themselves to our councillors to indicate their views, which up to the present they have not availed themselves of. It is therefore pleasing to find an able oppohent possessed of sufficient courage to adopt the initiative in pre senting the opposition case. Admittedly this is a debatable ques tion, and he possibly may welcome the opportunity tol accept a challenge to participate in a debate on the questibn, and if Mr Tomasetti would signify his acceptance of' this chal lenge in the next issue- of 'you...
