Shepherd, S Croft, Gray, Gregory, Tay or, Brun unig, and S. Gault. One of the bright intellects conceived the idea of calling it a "basket social"; if it had been named a "hamper social" it would have conveyed a more correct meaning, at least to mere man. Although the re freshments, which were dainty and choice, played an impirtant part, danc ing, interlaced with vocal and instru mental items, was the chief feature of the evening's entertainment. The dancing could hove been far nmore comfortably carried out if the hall had a greater floor space. Deco rations were light and artistic, and suitable for the room, flags and flowers forming the principal part. Mr Arthur Unthank capably per formed the duties of M C., and Mr Carey played perfect time for the dnec ing. Refreshments were served at 12 o'...

NOTES ON THE GAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 13 May 1911
NOTES ON THE GAMES. Frankston were the faster of the two teams on Saturday, and this fact was principally accountable for their victory. Hastings had two powerful rucks, that of Robinson, Francis and A. Amendola being especially effective. 'Nipper' Floyd also followed well, and George Slocombe, though not at his top, will make a useful extra rover. Frankston had Syd O'Neill back, who, no doubt, is a fine3tamp of a follower. Harley also made his weight fe't in the rack. Probably the most conspicuous placed man for his side was Henry Kerr, playing full back .for Hastings. He saved his goal many times, and used excellent judgment in his dashes. 'Dobbin' Reid, Jimmy Wilson, and Hughie Carmichael, all fine exponents of the game, met with accidents, which proved unfortunate for their side. Vie. Fryer, of Frankston, also received a nasty knock on the eye. Frank-ton's new men shaped splen didly, and Ashmore, on the back line, was particularly noticeable. Hughie Dennis put in some very solid...
