The cables had already mentioned the sale, anil Mr. Seullin, the member for Yarra (and now leader of theLabor 'Party) had been making .very fierce remarks about it in Melbourne, with a view to draw ing Mr. Bruce. But it takes a very ' clever man to do this when Mr. Bruce 1 does not wish to be drawn, and there is a limit to Mr. Scullin's cleverness. Mr. . Bruce believes in doing the pro per- tiling always—and especially does he.believe'-in-treating Parliament with, proper respect ' He said lie would re serve any remarks lie had to make until Parliament met, and he ,did. •!'

13 TO 9;.>J5LI-i Win for West Wyalong Barmeclman's Big- Fight Contrary to general' expectations, BaimYodriiair sustained defeat aL thii hamls of West Wyiiloii'g' on Sunday. One. reason why the visitors loomed , largely in the public eye was the re port that .their team, was already I;-, first class fettlo and materially r.trengl honed in tiie back division. Another reason why it was "thought they would enjoy the title of superior ity was no doubt attributable 'to* the I fact that the homo team is not the i formidable combination it was last i .year, .although Sunday's play proved that -they are still a very hard team to conquer.

11 TO NIL Half Moon's Win Reserves Defeated [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 8 May 1928
11 TO NIL Half Moon's Win Reserves Defeated , By defeating a strong team of Re serves on Sunday the; .Half■■"■Moons: have gained three successive victor ies this' season. Tho game aroused a considerable amount of . intorest owing to the fact that: the Half Moons recently annexed wine over Wyaling and' Ariah Park seniors. ■ • Thero was,, however, nothing o: special merit in the" match on' Sunday. Both sides displayed a- tendency to hug the ball, and,, through a non-ob servance of rules, brought about an unusually large number, of-breaches, making the game; dull1 and uninter esting. The 'general . play r;£ Hair Moons was not up to expectations, nor was the effort submitted by the Reserves in' any . way commendable. Fast open play-rsave . an. occasional passage on either side—was not forth coming, and the- upshot was that the excitement which threatened to mark the'- game did-'not; materialise:;,- ' ■ : Half -Moons" were -victorious by 1) points to nil, a score which would have been ad...

Model Many Church dignitaries and worshippers cherish an ardent desire to secure a pipe organ for their particular Church. In many cases, this is an impos sibility, because of the high cost of these instru ments. But an organ of wonderful power and remarkable range of expression—THE ESTEY CHURCH ORGAN, MODEL T 61 (as illustrated), can be secured at a reasonable figure, and will admirably suit the requirements of the Church which y/ants a first-rate instrument, but cannot afford a pipe organ. This model is a two manual organ with 15 stops, thus providing an infinite range of tone expression. The Oboe, Salcional, Flute and Vox Celeste "speak ing" stops are particularly beautiful, while the deeper sounding reeds and pedals produce exquisite wall - balanced harmonics. Sweet and sonorous sounds are equally effective en this organ, which is generally recognised by musical critics to be the finest instrument of its kind possible to obtain. Like all the Estey models, this organ is soundly c...
