CORRESPONDENCE. Port Melbourne Football Club. To the Editor of the "Standard." [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 February 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. Port Melbourne Football Club. To the Editor of the "Standard." .Dear Sir.-Now that the general meeting of the Football Club is at hand. I would like to draw the atten tion of the members to the need for more energetic action as regards the election of the office-bearers of the club. Tihe club has been going down for some time, and nothing but de termuination on the part of the mem bhers to secure the best available men will check this. There is not the slightest doubt that we have plenty of real good live men in our midst, and I think it is the duty of the members to find these men out and nominate them for the positions available in the club. Trusting this will have the effect of bringing about a record in nominations.-Yours sin cerely, HtERBERT G. JULIER,. Albert Park, Feb. 3, 1914.
"FOLLOW THE LEADER." [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 February 1914
"FOLLOW THE LEADER." A nervous commuter on his dark lonely way home from the railroad station heard footsteps behind him. He had an uncomfortable feeling that he was being followed. He increased his speed. The footsteps quickened ac cordingly. The commuter darted down a lane. The footsteps still pursued him. In desperation he vaulted over a fence, and, rushing into a ohurch yard, threw himself panting on one of the graves. "If he follows me here," he thought fearfully, "there can be no doubt as to his intentions." The man behind was following. He could hear him scrambling over. the fence. Visions of highwaymen, mani acs, garroters and the like flashed through his brain. Quivering with fear, the nervous one arose and faced his pursuer. "What do you want?" he demanded. "''Wh-whv are you following me?" "Say." asked the stranger, mopping | his brow, " do you always go home like this? I'm going up to Mr Brown's and the man at the station told me to follow you, as you lived next door. Exc...
NOTT-STREET SCHOOL. Tenders Exceed Estimate by £2,000. Another Block Feared. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 February 1914
NOTT-STREET SCHOOL. Tenders Exceed Estimate by £2,000. Another Block Feared. It was recently male known that the lowest tender received for re-modelling the State school at Nott-street, exceeded the estimate prepared by the Public Works Department by £2,000. The Department's estimate, it is stated, was £5,000, and the nearest tender was in the immediate vicinity of £7,000. This is very remarkable, and presents a repetition of what took place on a pre vious' occasion, when tenders were in vited for the same work. It is the more remarkable in \view of the fact that. the depar'tmen tal otli.ers were in possession of information regarding the previous tender, and should have been able to accurately place a value on the work required frolt a contractor's standpoint. IMr. G. Sangster. 5l.L.A.. the Member for Port Melbourne, has dailv been in consultation with the Minister and his officers over this matter. ice informs us that Mr. F. Talte, Director of Educa tion, says he h asked the offli...
Dust Nuisance. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 February 1914
Dust Nuisance. Cr. Russell took a step in the right direction at the last Council meeting, with a view to relieving Bay-street shopkeepers from a constant au'iety through being overwhelmed with dust and dirt on opening.. their premises in the morning. Through the intersec tion of Cross streets from Bridge and Liardel streets, the dust banks up oi the footpaths, and against the build ingi walls, until at times it can be seen anll inch in depth. This particularly applies to the vicinity of the Bank of Australasia, and along the building froints on the easterly side of the street. With the first breeze it is car ried ind]oors. In future the street cleaners will sweep down the foot paths during their usual rounds, and the light destructive material will be removed.

"Now, there is a lady." he continued," point ing across the room, "the lines of whose countenanoe are as clear to me as type. The chin shows firmness of disposition, amounting to obstinacy; the sharp pointed nose, a vicious tem perament; the eyes, a dryness of soul; the-" "Wonderful, professor-wonderful l" "You know something of the lady, thea?"' said the professor, complacent "Yes, a little.

FOOTBALL BAZAAR. Mayoress Resigns Presidency. The bazaar being organised to as sist the paying of debts incurred throughout last season by the com mittee of the Port Melbourne Foot ball Club, is making slow but steady progress. The function is to take place at the local town hall on the 26th, 27th, and 28th of this month. During the nagt week the Mayoress (Mrs. A. L. Pare) handed in her resignation as president of the move nent. The reason assigned in some quarters for this action is that Mr. J. G. Aikman, MLL.C., was invited and accepted an offer to open the bazaar, and that in consequence the Mayor had been slighted.. Those controlling the bazaar state that they were actu ated only by commercial motives, and the fact that Mr. Aikman is presi dent of the Victorian Football Asso ciation. He is a liberal patron to the winter pasttime, and recently, when opening a similar function at Footscray, came along with a dona tion of £10/10/. But others, lo --. ine at the matter from a party s...
