MOTOR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 26 March 1914
MOTOR NOTES. The disclosures made. in connection with a civil action recently heard in the County Court, Melbourne, will cause a considerable amount of uneasi ness in -motoring circles, particularly where paid drivers are employed. One of the-parties to the action, when asked if he had any understanding with a chauffeur in reference to becret commission being paid on repairs anl tyres supplied, replied, "If I did, it is done by others. Some of tne big firms pay as high as 15 per cent. to chauffeurs for their buriness,"' and such a. statement will, no doubt,' cause con siderable mistrust amongst car owners who leave the ordering of tyros, acces. series and repairs in the hands of their chauffeurs. The admission is such a serious one that every effort should be made to prove the truth of the asser tion. A sweeping investigation would be welcomed by reputable firms who would not, for a moment, countenance such practices. For some time past it has been common talk that a considerable am...

ROSSBRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 26 March 1914
ROSSBRIDGE. (From our own Correspondent.) The meeting of parents sor the elec tion of a new School Committee was poorly attended, owing to its clashing with a meeting of farilers at Lismoro in connection with railway matters. The new School Committee consists of Mesdamcs M' Carthy, Jackson and Clarke; and Mes'srs Robortson, W. M' Inerney, Drew and Rev. 0. Hardie.

The water in the Shire Council dam opposite the Rossbridge Hotel, is lower than it has been for many years. With. out this dam mannny people would be in a serious position, for besides water. ing their stock there, people are in several cases carting the water for do mnestic use. The Rev. 0. A. IHardie exchanged pulpits last Sunday with Mr M'Leod, of Wickliffe.

CORRESPONDENCE. .[To the Editor.] EDUCATION CONGRESS. Sir,-In your report of the above congress, the Chief Inspector of the E"ducation Department, Mr Fussell, is reported to have said, in the course of his address, in speaking on the relation of Elementary and High Schools to one another, that, "as far as.the town it self and .its immediate neighborhood were concerned, the problem was sole ed. He realised that children of par ents in the distant country districts were at .some disadvantage. As yet the department had not money to pay for their board in" towns." This, no doubt, is a great stumbling block to "poor" parents who are unable to pay for their children's board at such places where High Schools are established, who live in such out of the way places, such for instance, as Elmhurst, where the train service is not suitable to al low their children: to go and return home the same day. As it is admitted to be to the advantage of the State that children should receive tais ad vanc...
