ARE WE MARKING TIME? [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 25 January 1929
ARE WE MARKING TIME? "Gentlemen, we are only at the beginning of things." So spoke Mayor Grice at a dinner party on Wednesday night. Let it be hoped that we are at the beginning of things and not merely marking time. His worship, of course, had his eyes on the civic progress of Southport, and one could visualise him scanning the horison, be- yond which lies veiled the sun-tipped peak of destiny. So long as we are at the beginning of the upward climb things are all right. But if we are merely looking forward with admiring gaze towards the vision splendid and are doing nothing to attain it we very much need "livening up." The council, to its credit, is doing something and something very substantial. But is there any progressive citizen who &nbsp; thinks that all that can be done is being done? Scarcely! Good roads, an adequate water supply, and street improve- ment generally will make the place increasingly attractive to visitors ; but while our foreshores are bereft of planta...

Liquor at Dances COMPLAINT FROM NERAND [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 1 February 1929
Liquor at Dances COMPLAINT FROM NERANG ''.Arpu'' nWtes to th-- Edii--r : Sir.-— While not sotting rut on :i Cure Nation stun', rr p's!'-'7 as a prohibitionist or teetotaller, I feel impelled to voice a grievance which is shared by most of the smell com munity of Nerang, and which calls for the speedy extermination or sup pression of that base nanallan ghoul who brings strong drink to a place where a number of respectable people are gathered in a respectable and re spected cause. That strong drink is brcught there and dispensed some where handy is well known, and I am not at all inclined to the belief that the bringer is a philanthropist ; far from it. Certainly, as I've been told, the smell oft tbe cork is enovfeh for some of the youths, butt they should be rent borne, and, if abusive, there is a 'sitting out cornet' provided by a beneficient Government, for their kind. They invariably stand arrcund the door, and any remonstance Is greeted with abuse and language thit many. of those...

Johns, Yeerongpiily, Writes : — In a few weeks the shareholceis of the above company will be asked to elect two directors to reuiesent them on the board fqr the ensuing two years. As this is the first elec tion held under the new articles of association, it is veiy important that the suppliers should elect men who will safeguard their interests, as the recent alterations rvf tfoa nrtirl^a cViAni that the policy of the company in future will benefit the dry share holder only, at the expehse of the man who supplies the creanu The alteration of the article, which give the directors unlimited power in declaring a dividend, is totally againstt the purpose for which the Kingston Company was fcf.r.ed.
