PROGRESS [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 9 June 1939
PROGRESS oOo Recently we had the privilege of becoming better acquainted with what must be the premier Progressi Association in the State-Ormond. Many districts have no progress league because citizens can't be bothered, or if they do boast of one its membership is fortunate if it reaches double figures. Of course, there are exceptions, and some dis tricts can boast of excellent .progress organisations. Some progress associations that do exist would be better if they closed up shop, because their members attack problems in a vitriolic manner, antagonising councillors instead of holding out the hand of friendship and evincing a desire to co-operate. Progress associations can be of great help to councils. They can draw attention to many minor matters which councillors can be excused for missing. They can throw their weight behind a council in any movement for the well-being of ratepayers. And they can formulate in. a clear and concise manner the requirements of ratepayers for submissi...

"FELIX HOLT" SAYS (This is the first of a series of articles by "Felix Holt" on subjects of genetal interest.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 9 June 1939
"FELIX HOLT" SAYS oOo (This is the first of a series of articles by "Felix Holt'', on subjects of general interest.) . THAT many suburban councils seem to have slipped in failing to take-advantage of the opportunity of bringing Szell, the world-famous conductor, and the A.B.C. orchestra to perform in their municipalities. This combination is appearing at many suburban town halls, and it seems, a pity that local ratepayers are denied the opportunity of hear ing it. Whilst one should not add that of entrepeneur to the already long list of council activities, an interest in municipal music should be manifest in each council. Here is an opportunity of hearing the best type of music, played by first-class musicians, under the baton of a world-famous conductor, and, from what we hear, it is to be had for the asking and with no financial responsibility. We'have consistently advocated the benefits to be derived from the existence of first-class local bands and orchestras. With the oppor tun...
LET'S WRITE A LETTER TO SIR CHARLES HENTY BRAND, C.B., C.M.G., V.C.O., D.S.O. (V.). Member of the Senate, Commonwealth of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 9 June 1939
LET'S WRITE A LETTER oOo TO' SIR CHARLES HENRY BRAND, C.B., C.M.G., C.V.O., D.S.O. (V.), Member of: the Senate, Commonwealth of Australia. Dear Digger,-No returned soldier in Australia can claim' that popularity which is deservedly yours. Although honors rest thickly upon your breast, no titled man in Australia is as devoid of "side" as you. That's why we address you by the name you are always referred to where Diggers foregather. Your remarks in the Senate last week regarding the unfortunate position of the unemployed were like a pot. off the ice on a roaring hot day in Sinai. Good for you, Digger! Your statement that in Victoria alone there are 38,000 unemployed'(ls staggering. You say the dole .is sapping the manhood of the unemployed. Well, it wbutd' appear that we are all agreed on that point. Why continue a practice that we all admit is!, quite wrong? Australians are revolting against the sweating conditions under which thousands of their fellow citizens are working. It must s...

NO MATCH FOR FRANKSTON ---0-- MORNINGTON DEFEATED. Mornington was no match for Frankston on the local oval, on Sat urday. With several junior players includ ed, Franlkston. expected to be fight ing hard to win, but after the first quarter there was little doubt of the final issue. The final scores were: Frankston 18-18, Mornington 12-13. w The game was very crowded, and due possibly to the hard manner in which it was played. So 'far 'this season there has been little evidence of the new rule speeding up or open ing out the game. On Saturday the man who gained possession of the ball was. almost always at a disad vantage. Individuals in Allen Feltham and Bishop played good footbtall for Mornington. Handball by Frank-I ston's smaller players was repeated ly used with effect, and often paved the way for clever goals. On' the half forward wing, Benson, one of the youngest players on,. the ground, played .fine football. Harry (well supported by Staff, Clapham, Peters and Beecroft) play ed...
