What a Foolish Girl! [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 26 May 1939

What a Foolish Girl ! oOo There once lived a girl who had always wanted to travel. She had seen pictures and read books about America, and she decided to save all her money until she could afford to go there. For a long time she stayed at home and didn't spend a penny more than she had to. At last she was able to buy a seco nd-class ticket to America. She didn't enjoy the trip, and was glad when she reached Los Angeles. She had heard such wonderful things about this city, for it was here that all the filml stars lived. One day she saw a ,film star. He was a very ordinary looking person, and she was extremely disappointed. She had travelled all the way from Australia to see a movie actor, and now she wished she hadn't. She then journeyed to New York, about which she had read a great deal. But, except for being taller than any other city, it was not out standing and she was disappointed again. One day she met an American who wanted to know all about Australia, and asked her many quest...

LET'S WRIITE A LETTER Oo- -- - TO THE COUNCIL; OF THE TAXPAYERS' ASSOCIATION. Dear Sirs,-We read your letter to the Premier re "breaking up" of estates on Monday of last week, and it spoilt a pleasant week-endlj We did have a good week-end-our three daily meals were good and nour. ishing, we smoked two.cigars, had two !'spots" (or perhaps four-we're not sure), and had a trip into the country. No doubt many of your members has even a better week-end than us. "They probably played golf in most luxurious surroundings or enjoyed themselves at Ascot. During which period thousands of Australian families were existing on a limited diet, and enjoying very little of the pleasures of life to which every Australiar) has a right. However, these people have existed so long under social conditions that we have all grown used to it; they are almost a forgotten race. Now, when the Premier threatens to throw open those fertile estates of the Western District for the benefit of Britishers both here a...

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 26 May 1939

(To the Editor.). Sir,-As a resident of, Frankston for more than 20 years, I have taken great interest and a certain amount of pride in the development of the town. The building of churches, schools, municipal offces, soldiers' memorial, the remodelling of shops and the con struction of many new ones, together with so many residences that it is well-nigh impossible to keep count of them, have all come with the ,progress of the town. Only two buildings seem to belie the progress of Frankston. They are the railway station and the Mecha nics' Institute. The station was en larged when the line was electrified, ,but made at the same time shocking. ly inconvenient. This, however, seems to be a matter outside muni cipal control. At abott thle same time as the electric train service ways extended to Frankstonl the llechani..' Hall was enlarged by the additing of several rooms on the southern wall. Since then nothing has been done to improve the hall accommodation, 'and the hall has been a v...

Sporting Highlight A One-Sided Arrangement [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 26 May 1939

Sporting Highlight - oOo A One-Sided Arrangement Whilst we do not favor trafficking in jeague fobtbaliers, ws speak for League patrons when we state that the attitude of Collingwood in the Boyall case is grossly unfair. For years Victorian clubs have raided South Australian clubs and enticed away their star players. Yet, when a Victorian man is induced to go to Adelaide, League officials throw up their arms in aniguish. Collingwood is a club we always praise. They do hbt trafic to the same extent as other clubs, but when the opportunity arises of further ing the game in another State, they take the narrow view. Geelong repented of its decision regarding Gordon Abbott, and foot ball fans hope that Collinlkwood will give away event at this stage.

(To tOle Ialdtor.) Sir,-After reading the letter . in this column last week from Arnold Noble, in connection with the manner. in which the Tyabb Cricket Club is celebrating the winning of the "A" grade premiership of the N.P.C.A., it took me quite a long time to decide whether the writer was serious or having a joke at the expense of his club. From several of the players, Ih gathered that Mr. Noble's idea that a dinner to past and preec players sliolud be held-q-uite a ga idea-but it was to be financed by t members themselves! I: underst?z however, that in cases such as lb it is usual for the president of club to "turs on" the dinner, ants for. the members of the team to dos If Mr. Noble can persuale the p??e dent to pay for the dinner, I sho' not Itnaggne the club would ha mt!ch hpsitttipnp In accepting the fer. In any case, once the cricket it hits decided the manner in whil they arp going to celebrate, surely! is up to all the members to "but in" and make the night a success. Fro...
