TYABB CRICKET CLUB. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 June 1939
TYABB CRICKET CLUB. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Some person who hides his or her identity under the nom-de-plume Fair Play tries to ridicule me in your columns last week. He said, from conversations he had with various players, he gathered from them that it was Mr Noble's idea (meaning my self) that a dinner to opast and present players should 'be held, but it was to be financed by the members them selves. Fair Play, however, has been somewhat misinformed because one was not the originator of the idea of holding the suggested dinner, but the writer certainly fell in with the ; pro posal, which I considered was an ex cellent way to celebrate our cricket ers winning the premiership. Kriow ing the local cricket finances were low, a group of players had agreed to finance the dinner themselves, which seemed the right and proper thing to do. However, Fair Play says that in cases such as this it is the usual cus tom for the president to "turn on" the dinner, and not for the members 4, of the tea...

The King Steps Out [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 June 1939
The King Steps Out oOo We live in an age of historical wonders. The children of tomorrow will learn from their history books the news we read in our morning papers as the events of the day. Last week a King of England crossed the ocean and visited one of his dominions. Thus for the first time in the long history of the British Empire the people of a dominion across the sea were given the opportunity of greeting the First Member of its respected Royal Family. No matter what the station in life, no matter what creed or political belief, millions of subjects throughout the world feel proud in the know ledge that, with monarchs being dethroned all around, affection and loyalty to the Monarch of the Empire is still manifest in every dominion. If by some unforeseen circumstance of the future England decided against the system of a limited monarchy, the British Empire would disintegrate quickly. The King of England is the Empire personified. Long May He Reign.

SPORTING HIGHLIGHT A Plain Braid Scot [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 June 1939
PO RTING HIGHLIGHT oOo A Plain Braid Scot After a lapse of a couple of years we renewed acquaintance with Master Ian Ellis one damp night last week. When we last gazed upon the worried face of Master Ian he was a pure "lilywhite," and what he was doing to his brothers at that time was shameful. Outside the hempen square Ian behaved asa a dignified son of a Scottish laird, but once inside the ring he threw' his kilts to the winds and sailed into the foe like William Wallace at Stirling, and quickly 'became cock-of-the walk among amateur boxers. This seemed too easy. He wanted real, battle. so Ian decided to become a professional boxer. About twelve months ago, a brother Scot-Bert Malcolm-commenced picking the thistles out of Master Ian's socks, and putting an edge on his sword. He of the sober coun tenance responded willingly to the admonitions of the Clan Malcolm. He has certainly suffered a reverse or two, but his climb up the flstic ladder to the rung .where the big money is kept ...
HASTINGS-TYABB v. BALNARRING [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 June 1939
HLASTINGS-TYABB v. BALNARRING Hastings-Tyabb were at home to Balnarring on Saturday, but they did not prove much opposition to the far heavier and bigger team of the visitors, who scored rather an easy victory. The home team is to be commended for its sportsmanship, as they. play for the love of the game, and though beaten, they always come up smiling. However, they are not worried over their losses, but will surprise most of their other opponents in the future matches. The day was ideal for football, and there was a fair crowd present to witness the match, but although it was rather one-sided, we' trust all had an enjoyable afternoon's sport. The teams were.-Hastings-Tyabb: N. Francis (capt.), E. Vear, A. Lang holtz, A. Woolley, K. Barclay, A. Barclay, W. Carmichael, P. Goss, G. Connell, V. Bowen, A. Gibson, R. Mentiplay, T. Wilson, K. Edwards, A. Sheehey, H. Dyall, S. Smith, C. Floyd and L. Benton (19th man). Balnarring's team was: K. Peterson (capt.), J. Colyer, V. Callanan, F. K...
JUNIORS NOT DISGRACED. Exciting Match. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 2 June 1939
JUNIORS NOT DISGRACED. Exciting Match. Frankston and Naval Depot Jun iors were two well-matched sides at Frankston on Saturday. Although not of very high standard, the foot ball was fast and interesting. Frank ston had difficulty in fielding a full side, and were late on the field. Osborne, playing his first season with Frankston, was one of the team's best. His judgment in the last quarter when Frankston were fighting desperately, was a telliig factor. With two or. three: of their best players elevated- to -the senior- divi sion, the local team was one of the weakest fielded this year. However, they played with such determination that the Depot won only by a small margin. Frankston's best quarter was the third, when they made up a six goals leeway in the latter part to lead by eight points. The Depot rallied and lead at the final change by about six points No effort was spared by the home side to make up the leeway, and the scores were levelled half-way through the final term. The ...
