Cr Murray was voted to the chair, and after explain- ing the objects of the meeting, called for nominiations for a secretary to the movement and Mrs G. E. Shepherd, was unanimously chosen, whilst for the position of president Mr Shep- herd was elected.

The Pictures A Budget of Notes About the People's Favorites [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 4 March 1921

The Pictures   A Budget of Notes About the People's Favorites The directorate of the Frankston Pic- ture Co. Ltd. invites all those who are not shareholders to take shares in the enterprise to-day. Substantial profits have been made, and are being made, out of picture theatres, as they are a popular and cheap form of amusement. and in the history of public entertain- ment no such rapid progress has been made as in the cinematograph business. This is due to the ever-increasing ex- cellence of film production, and no doubt to the comparatively low costs of' running a picture theatre.   The Frankston pictures have now instituted a screen advertising feature, the lessee being Mr. V. Morgan, one of the best-known theatrical ad. men in the whole of Austrailia. Already this feature has been well patronised by city establishments, whilst amongst the local progressives advertising by the screenery are Messrs. W. J. Oates, E. Barber, V Clark, A T Walters, W. &amp...

The Standard. FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 1921. Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 4 March 1921

The Standard   FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 1921. Local and General News. If you are looking for Prime Meat go to Clarke's, Young Street.   The "armistice" between shire councillors regarding place of meet- ing expired at Somerville yesterday. Cr Jones (Hastings) drew attention to the fact. All his colleagues breathed hard and waited. No one seemed anxious to make a definite move. The President (Cr Mason) invited a resolution, and Cr Griffeth moved that meetings be held monthly at Seaford, Frankston, Somerville and Hastings. Cr Jones seconded. Cr Oates emphatically insisted that Frankston was the properly constituted meeting place, and it soon became very clear that all the old trouble was to be fought over again. The President was quick to realise this, and he averted a certain deadlock by moving an amendment that the armistice be continued until September next Councillors realised apparently that another "strike" at this stage, when certain important developments are...

Municipal Cricket Match Dinner and Speeches at the Pier Tea House [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 4 March 1921

Municipal Cricket Match Dinner and Speeches at the Pier Tea House               A municipal cricket match between teams representing the Shire Councils of Frankston & Hastings and Morn- ington took place in the Frankston Park on Thursday, 24th ult. Presi- duet Mason led his team into the field minus Crs Murray, Griffeth, Al- den and Latham, who were unavoid- ably absent. The visitors were cap- tained by Cr Barrett. He accepted the responsibility at the special re- quest of Prsident Nunn, who is more familiar with the provisions of the Local Government Act than the ethics of cricket. Frankston & Hastings had first use of the wicket and were not disposed of until the respactable score of 68 runs had been compiled. Near- ly half the score resulted from the partnership of President Mason and Cr Armstrong—the latter a name to conjure with where cricket is concer ned. The President r...

Various Notes of Interest Phillip Island [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 4 March 1921

Various Notes of Interest Phillip Island Good catches of schnapper are be- ing made at Cowes, Phillip Island and at Newhaven. A local fisherman at Cowes hooked 94. schnapper last     week, whilst Mr. F. Marks' party caught nearly 200, averaging from 4lbs. to 12bs. in weight, whilst many 6lb. flatheads were also caught. The bait used was "doggie" shark. Cowes has lately been the arena of two rather severe accidents. On Friday last, a motor car, containing five passengers, overturned. Two passengers were thrown clear, but the other three, with the driver, were pinned beneath the car. One lady acted very pluckily and extricated the others from their dangerous po- sitions. Fortunately, no bones were broken, though all suffered from se- vere shock and many nasty bruises.   The car was only travelling at a mo- derate speed at the time of the acci ident, which was due to a back wheel breaking through a culvert. No fault is attributable to the driver, ...

Cranbourne [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 4 March 1921

Cranbourne Writing in the Bairnsdale "Every Week," Mr E. H. I Hatfeld, of the Vacuum Oil Co. gives an interesting account of his impressions of East Gippsland, where .ilrrigation with ont:diater'. is the order of the day He speaks highly of sandy soils, and says too much sandy country is ne- glected altogether. There are, says he, sand hills in Gippsland at present a tangle of fern and scrub and forest which rightly used could be made rich assets. At Somerville the finest orchards are upper rises of the same nature, whilst at Cranbourne a few hundred acres until recently thought. of as desolate are being eagerly clear- ed and planted, since one, man with sufficient courage proved the worth of the sandy soils.

Our Seaford Letter Amusement Committee Makes Its Report [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 4 March 1921

Our Seaford Letter     Amusement Committee Makes Its Report The secretary of the Amusement   Committee (Mr. B. Wiltshire) pre- sented the following report at the last meeting of the Seaford Progress As- sociation, regarding the A.N.A. Day Sport.— Gentlemen,--We have the honour to report that the sports programme out. lined at our last meeting was duly. car- ried out, and the committee and the public that attended are of the opinion that the affair was a social and finan- cial success. The committee had to face the fact that the railway restric- tions were not lifted, also the fact that the weather was good beach weather, but, in spite of these two factors, there was the largest assemblage of people that has yet been seen together in the history of the town.. There was a good attendnace of children, and the various races were keenly contested. The' committee wish to thank Cr. Armstrong and Cr. Richardson of Kerang, for their kind assistance as j...

Scottish Society Mooted [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 4 March 1921

Scottish Society Mooted By Milner Macmaster. In an informal way a few Franks- ton folk of Scotch descent decided to try whether a Caledonian Society would flourish on the Peninsula. One and all they are Australians first and foremost, but they realise that Sandy, like John Bull, Taffy, and Pat. con- tribute something to the national character which is in the making. Per- haps they may be forgiven if they think Sandy's contribution specially valuable. We are a pleasure-seeking, ease-loving generation, and Frankston a pleasure resort where life is lived amidst a crowd of holiday makers, must gain by a larger infusion of the qualities which the old time Scot won in struggl- ing with the often-grudging soil of the Highlands in the colder climate of the North.   However, my purpose in these few lines is not to prose but to call the attention of those with a drop of Scotch blood in their veins to what is being attempted. In the first, in- stance, there is to be a Scotch con- ...
