Some Passing Notes MR. DOOLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 February 1922
Some Passing - Notes MR ? DOOLEY. So; some of lMr. Dooley's fricnds are venturing to finl fault and iccdusing him of "putting on too iimuch side." 'Tis an old 'story 'The deimagogue climbs to office: "'His supporters believe him to be able to fulfil all his election promises. It is a moral and -'financial imjpossibility, be cause " hie promised everybody everything. When he fails, his supp)orters weary -him with de mands, andl he' grows impatient. -hinks them unreasonable, ignor ant uniiiimaginative, unsympathc tic, and' all after, fat billets. He gets tired of thcir persistence; i, inclined to give them a bit of his mind, restrains himself, keeps quiet.. That's the point at which they acciusc him- of pittting on side.. If they only knew it; he's holdiiig .himself .in, and if he wierc to let)himself `go he would shrivel :thenic with scorn, and- in cidentally end' his political career. The phrase, "'Putting" on side," .is slang for the classical, "putting on airs," showing -pride and...
At Mornington Races [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 February 1922
At Norqington Races1 Iy "Stratllmorc." The Mornington races on Tuesday last were spoilt byrain. It was needed, of course, for the country was as dry as a prohi Iitionists's throat, but it needn't hive rained the whole time. 'he attendance, as a result, was not very satisfactory. It was .a pity, for the I-ornington body deserves` to prosper. in its attempt to cater for the racing public on the Peninsula. Still, its meetings are not often spoilt by inclement weather. The Maiden Plate attracted 15 starters, and the course at that lime was. in excellent order, free from dust and firm, but after the third event, it became rather sloppy, for it rained incessantly and heavily until the last race. 'The Piquet mare, Leonora, was the favorite for this event. Jackie Harris wore thie black and white braces, and Gladlvyn's daugliter looked a good thing., By the way, iGladlwyi?. won'tilhe I loonce Valley Cup twice, but, Leonora did not do her mother nmuch icredt 'I]!e top-weight, Margot, a likely...
HOLIDAY PLEASURE SEEKERS. (Written Specially for "The Standard.") [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 February 1922
HOLIDAY PLEASURE I. SEEKERS. (Written Specially for "The Standard.") They come from every quarter of the. State-from shop and office, from farm and statioin. Tired city _nen, mothers of fami lies, weary with the dull. mono= tony of housekeeping cares and worries. Young men and mai dens from- country and desk, blase society belles, boys and girls revelling in the thought of the long Xmas vacation-all with one object in view-the search for pleasure. The famous.Scottish Bard, af teerhaving tadted-of the pleasures of this life; expressed himself as to !their 'elusiveness in the fol lowing lines :-??-r: "'Pleasures aia like poppies ' Spiread. ', , 1 , You seiz the f?ower, its bloom is shed. - Or, vdikt:t?che'-biiO?-drift on the river, A moment white, then melts for : ever." But it is doubtful if one of the thousands of pleasure seekers at the seaside and mountain resorts during the summer vacation would endorse the poet's pessi mistic opinion of pleasure, as en joyed by them at their cho...

Titman's Seven Wickets [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 3 March 1922
Titman's $even Wickets Naval Depot, played Hastings at the Base last Saturday. There is a healthy rivalry. (says our Crib Point correspondent) be tween these teams, and a large crowd turned out to see the game. The Depot batted first ; thanks .chiefly to Annear. they made over 160.. Hastings went down like "chaff before the wind," the usually reliable bats-. men following one after another in melancholy procession. They only made 25 runs. The chief destructive agency was a new bowler, Titman, whom they have just recently tried out. He got 7 wickets for 10 runs. This is a great performance to be made at the expense of a team of the batting strength of Hastings. The sailors got very excited over their decisive victory and their brass band serenaded the victori ous players. The result gives Bittern a chance to prove them selves in a final match with Has tings for the premiership.of theI Peninsula Association.

THE PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 3 March 1922
THE PICTURES. The popularity of the Pictures with the local public'and visitors was demonstrated once again on Saturday night, when the-Frank ston Institute was crowded. The picture, featuring the adorable Wanda Hawley, dealt with the Futurist movement, and its ma nifold absurdities gave Wanda ard Helen Jerome Eddy plenty of opportunities to introduce com edy stunts Monte Blue's pic ture was also well received. Many complaints have been made regarding the rowdyism of the boys and youths who usually patronise the front portion of the hall. The principal complaint seems to be against the whist ling, stamping of feet;, and the noise occasioned by the banging of the tip-up seats. This rowdy ism will not be tolerated, and the boys caught disturbing the com fort of patrons will be removed from the hall
