Woff qv.nt. nally pierced the home team's backs apd drew first blood, Again Wof collared, sent on to Mewett, and Warburtol got a hold from that fine piece of play, but Edmonds smartly blocked the attack and .re turned the ball towards the centre, where Creaver and Co. made the best use of it possible under the cir cumstances, Cheltenham, however, got forward again and hoverd round the stioks for a while, and from a free kick to Kidgell, Snook event tually secured, and potted a sixer for Brighton. Stewart was ins...

THE IMPOSSIBLE ABORIGINE. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 15 August 1914
.tiIE IMIPOSSIBLE ABORIGINE, ----+----- A recognised othnological, author: fty has lately raised food for thought in his freely expressed opinion as to the uselessness of attempting to grafi civilisation on to the majority of Australian ani South Se Island na tives. Like many students of human ty, he believes that ths primitive peoples willlive, prosper, and enjoy life if left entirely to their own en dironment and mode of living, This condemnation of the power of civilisation is in somewhat of a whole. sale nature, for other opinions have placed many of the Island's tribes on a high grade amongst savage races, whilst many residents of the North ern T'erritory and Queensland speak in eulogistic terms of the utility and intelligence of the Australian Blacks, This rather sweeping assertion owes its origin to the fact that in thiu country the increase of the white population hasl resulted in the de. crease of the blacks with monotonous. regularity. Yet the truth remains that in other l...
