MISS HURLEY'S PUPILS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 30 May 1914
MISS HURLEY'S PUPILS. A successful display in aid of the New School Fund was given in St. Joseph's Hall, on Monday last, by the pupils of Miss 11ey Hurley. The "star" turn on the programme proved to be ,the ,performance of the well-established favorites, Miss Iley Hurley and Ida Peet, who were recalled again and again. Miss May Harris's singing and dancing were much admired; Miss Vera Quinn was well suited to her character; Miss Hazel Moore's singing and . clogging were extra good, and Miss Doris Wal ton's singing of '?My Heart's Bouquet" disclosed considerable promise in this young lady as a public performer. Others who contributed to an enjoyable pro-. grai;mme were Miss Ivy Jackson, Doris Wright, Eily Crowe, Annie Willcocks, and another sweetly singing mite known as Baby Guilding. The farce, "Micky Rooney's Ragtime Band" provoked much laughter. The parts were well sustained by Miss Mary Harris, Baby Peet, aged 5, Vera Quinn, and .Baby Kella.

CARE OF THE BABE. Movement To Instruct Young Mothers. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 30 May 1914
CARE-OF THE BABE. Movement To Insti'uct Young Mothers. An informal chat with the members of the local council and Nurse Archer, a member of the Women's Christian Temperance Union, on the subject of the care of the babies of young mothers took place on Monday even ing. "I only wish," said the nurse, "that the subject might be given wider pub licity." A school for mothers had been running in London for many years, and had exerted a beneficent influence on thousands of young households; It applied, of course, to residents of poorer suburbs, and ap peared to be much appreciated in Richmond, where she was now en gaged. Mothers were taught how to feed babies; how to clothe them ex peditiously; and their progress from month to month was adjudged by the weighing machine. "It was thought," said the nurse, "that it might be of use in Port Mel bourne if a nurse came down here once a fortnight and - assisted the inothers, andgave hints as regarded t:e babies if they were unwell.'

EMPIRE DAY. ---~- Hearty School Celebrations. The school.observances of Empire Day on.Friday, May 22, were more cordial than usual. The children did not go without their accustomed treat, for although the council had refused an application for a donation of £5, the correspondent (Mrs. K. Middle ton) initiated a subscription list and met with a ready response. A bio graph entertainment, the cost of which was defrayed by one ratepayer, was given in the school-grounds in the evening. The celebrations this year were remarkable for the large attendance of parents. Each child was presented "vith a miniature "Union Jack" or Australian flag, and a bag of really good sweets. At.

CORRESPONDENCE. . Criticism Resented. To the Editor. Sir,-Would you allow me space iin your columns to refer to some of the: remarks passed at the last meeting of the P.L.C., regarding the public nimet-. ing held at the South IMelbourne Town Hall, to protest against the fine of £5; inflicted by a bench of hon. Justices at the South Melbourne Court, on Cr Page. The above meeting was organised by me, and was in no way connected with he P.L.C., so therefore discussion at the branch meeting was altogether out of order, and, to my mind, such discus sion'and criticism should not have been allowed, particularly in my absence. It would be well, too, if luke-warm, or half-hearted Labourites would fortify themselves with facts before they at tempt to speak derogatory of those whose past efforts in the Labour move Inent are a fair reflex of their charac ter. It would be well, too, if charit able chairmen would retain their efforts in that position until they are sought for, and further, when t...

ELECTRIC SPARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 June 1914
" ELECTRIC SPARKS. Is the Port team The only crowd of 'bailers who cal play roughly ? One might think so from the wa: some people talk and certain scribble. There are two sides to every ques tion, and two parties to every foot ball squabble. Some players have the unpleasanil knack of goading opponents in ar underhand manner. None but the victims know it. Others, like the "open villains" in the drama, let out and have done with it. The two are undesirable as sports, albeit there is a limit to most peo ple's endurance. If it be a matter of preference, however, give us the latter. Anyhow, Ports have another scalp to the girlde, and that is the conclu sion of the whole matter so far. Why do not various clubs give a decent prize each to the best conduc ted player of fhe season? The idea should appeal to true sportsmen with the necessary wherewithal. It would have tlie effect of preventing a lot of rough play; but much would have to be put up with. Bradley's Pictures will be shown in the ...

THE FOOTBALL SEASON. Ports (10.13) Beat Brighton (5.14). A Stubborn Battle. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 June 1914
THE FOOTBALL SEASON.I Ports (10.13) Beat Brighton (5.14). A Stubborn Battle. (By "Rover.") The match between the above teams always seems to cause a stir in the foot ball field. Probably there is "some thing in the seaside air'" after all. Brighton made first use of the wind, and managed to score 3.3 to 0.1, two of the goals coming from free kicks. The number of free kicks in the first 25 minutes' play amounted to 38, and if justice had been done against "kicking to danger" this would have amounted to as many more. With the wind, Ports forced the play, and after a number of. fruitless attempts managed to get a sixer, through the agency of Merrick. The-play being now greatly in favour of Ports, Brighton strengthened the back division, and finding that they could not stem the tide, began to play the.man. Ports, securing a couple of additional goals through the medium of Anderson and Barfoot, and a number of minor points, whilst Brighton, getting the ball up once, received a "charity k...
