Traveller Pays Compliment. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 20 March 1915
Traveller Pays Compliment. Addressing a member of Port Mel bourne's /police force a traveller who had just returned from an extended trip abroad, and was preparing to embark on shipboard en route for Sydney, said he would like to pay a compliment to the tramway manage ment as he had found it in Victoria. The gentleman said for attention, discipline, and respect for passengers the system beat anything existing in the world, and he felt that to depart without -so -expressing himself would be to leave a duty undone, although, perhaps, it would do little or no good to anybody.. We here in Victoria also know ahd appreciate the good discipline anid management of the cable framwa.ys, and trust that in the near future when the lines revert_ to Government or municipal hands that similar control will be exer cised. Under- any circumstances save us from the indignities one suf fers on the electric system of New, South Wales-a Government ven ture.

CORRESPONDENCE. Guard Our Soldiers, The Dangers From Disease. To the Editor of the "Standard." [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 20 March 1915
CORRESPONDENCE. Guard Our Soldiers, The Dangers From Disease. To the Editor' of the "Standard." Dear Sji-The. Australasian White COoss League appeals. for funds to enable booklets, warning men against the dangers of sexual immorality, to be distributed freely among our . Australian soldiers. These booklets not only point out in the plainest terms the dire effects of venereal diseases in wrecking the physical frame, and producing years or a life time of. misery and suffer ing, but mnake an appeal also to the noble and chivalrous instincts latent in nearly all young men, urging them to self-control for the sake of womanhood. It is believed that if one or more or these booklets can be placed in the hands of every soldier whether in camp in the various States, or 'on board ship, or in Egypt, incalculable good will result. It is appalling to think that hundreds of these flie young men-the very flower of our race-may acquire some loathsome disease which will blast the whole of their futur...
