Our Letter Box. OAKLEIGH FOOTBALL CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh and Caulfield Times Mulgrave and Ferntree Gully Guardian — 21 March 1914

Our Letter Box, OAKLEIGHi FOOTBALL CLUB. Sir,-I trust you will pardon my asking room in your columns to draw attention to the Annual Meeting of the Football Club on 26th March. A few weeks ago some " able pens" were writing about " apathy of Committee, etc" and " mismanagement". I feel sure if these gentlemen will turn up at the meeting things will be " lively" and good done to the club and the game. We don't want to see a lot of people present afraid to open their mouths, as in the past. Let us ''shake things up." In conclusion, let me add that " justice" must be given to those officials who have had to stand a lot of unnecessary abuse at the hands of persons that are not members of the club. Yours, etc., OLD SPORT.

Betts will be pleased to receive the names of players wish ing to take part in this match. F. Barker has scored 324 runs this season, which is a good .er formance, considering this is his 2nd year in the cricket field. Oakleigh E. seems to have a mortgage on the Springraie Dis trict Competition. They look to hold Clayton safe in the semi-final match. A correspondent would like to know who is the highest individual scorer in the Springvale District Association. Perhaps the Secre tary of the Association would in form us? P. Hart made 36 against Clay ton last Saturday; his off drives were beautiful to watch. The cricket season is drawing to a close, and the local clubs have had a very successful season so far. The Oakleigh Club XI members were delighted with their win over Auburn Wesleys, and celebrated it with a refreshing cup ...

THE DUST NUISANCE. To THe ErTOR. Sir,-I ask for a small space in your valuable journal to draw at tention of the Council to the dis comfort and loss caused to residents through-the dust. It is bad enough at all times of the year, except for a brief period in winter, but the long continued dry spelt has made it absolutely cruel. It is bad enough here, but worse in Broad way, Eaton, Portman and the streets near the station, filling the shops with dust and horse dung and destroying goods, to say no thing of its general discomfort.-I anm, etc., DOWN WITH THE DUST.

THE CEMETERY BOULEVARD TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh and Caulfield Times Mulgrave and Ferntree Gully Guardian — 28 March 1914

THE CEMETERY BOULEVARD To THE EDITOR. Sir,-I have been watching and waiting for a long time to see the Corough Council take some action in regard to making roads from Station street to Drummond street and to Warrigal road through the Cemetery. Now that the new Railway station will soon be com pleted, with its principal platforms reached by means of the subway, the. extension of Station street would be a great convenience. Some years ago, I believe, a sketch plan was submitted to the council with Harston avenue, Daniel av enue and other serpentine walks, and it would be as well to dig it out of the obscurity to which it has evidently been relegated and es ecute the work. Trusting some action will be taken-I am, etc., RATEPAYER. Broadway, 25-3-14.

Our Letter Box. INCIPIENT LARRIKINISM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh and Caulfield Times Mulgrave and Ferntree Gully Guardian — 28 March 1914

Our Letter Box, INCIPIENT LARRIKINISM. To THE EDITOR. Sir,-Although Oakleigh has so far been fortunately free of the genus larrikin, the curse of other suburbs, there has been of late a revival of incipient larrikinism by a number of young lads, familiarly known as The Fleas or Portman street Rovers. It is their habit to congregate at the Oakleigh railway station and make themselves very objectionable in a variety of ways to people having business there. The remioval of the old station has broken up the happy home of rats -not even of a municipal ratable value-and we do not want the new railway station infected with fleas, or in fact any vermin what ever.-I ami, etc., CONSTANT TRAVELLER. [We rejoice with our corres pondent in the fact that Oakleigh has been kept free of larrlkinism, and have no doubt that the police will keep in check those of our youth whose exuberant spirits tend to make their conduct objection able,---ED. 0.T'.1

The President: We have come to submit the report and accounts of the past year.

MULGRAVE APPEAL CASES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh and Caulfield Times Mulgrave and Ferntree Gully Guardian — 28 March 1914

MUL.GRAVE APPEAL CASES. To TIE EDITOR. Sir.-I notice in your report of the meeting of the Mulgrave Shire Council that Cr McLorinar as much as accused the appellants in the recent appeal cases of holding a blunderbuss at the heads of the members of the council. With your permission I as one of the appellants absolutely deny the im peachlnment, indeed it is a question for the archaeologists of Australia to decide whether the blunderbuss is not in this era of the world as extinct as the dodo, the unicorn or mastodon. Now if this weapon is found to be extinct, Cr McEorinan has most certainly made a Blunder buss. Sir, allow me to speak not only for myself but also for all the other appellants and to say that we are law-abiding citizens and took the gruel that was meted out to us with true resignation, but at the same time regretting that nine of our number showed the white feather and refused to face the music. This is very different to what those brave Ulster men are going to do with a ...
