URGENT NEED OF RECREATION GROUND [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 26 April 1924

URGENT NEED OF RECREATION GROUND There is a general- consensus of opinion that the City of Sunshine is looming in the near distance, and it behoves public men holding respon sible positions to leave no stone un turned-and the, landscape there abouts is strewn with no end of for midable rocks-iin order that posterity may he supplied with a sufficiency of open spaces, wherein parks, gardens ,n.d recreation grounds may be estab lished within easy radius of the re sidential area. The necessity of such foresight being shown is beyond ques tion. Now is the time when our coun ,:i! should he animated by the utmost keenness in this direction. It has a ,ower in its hands which should hbo wielded with no uncertain hand. Where large subdivisions are being contemplated provision should be in sii;ted upon that a suitable proportion cf the land should be reserved for public purl)oscs and vested in the proper authorities. Useful spaces can thus easily be procured for future pub lic use with compara...

SUNSHINE'S THOUSAND [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 26 April 1924

SUNSHINE'S THOUSAND The decision of the Charitics Board to deny the- populous suburbs adja cent to Footscray the privilege of building a central hospital in Foot scray, is consistent with its policy in the matter, and the public is in formed that the dccision in final and must be accepted. There is consider able demur in doing so, but no or ganised protest appears to be con templated. Such a protest might at least elicit a more detailed and per haps satisfactory reply, for at present the reasons tendered against the pro posal appear somewhat scant and unconvincing. It is gcenerally under stood that the money already raised cannot very well he returned to the original donors, as they are to a large extent unknown, and much of the fund was raised -by organised efforts in the way of entcrtainnments. The question of the- disposal of such a large sum will most likely be at the discretion of the Attorney-Genc ral, who would naturally bhe guided to some extent by suggestions from .the resp...

Sir,-Allow me the space in your valuable paper to comment upon the dastardly attack by a mob or ruflians, who were in no way connected with any cl b, upon residents, supporters and )laydrs of Sunshine. Even women and children were treated with the ut most indecc.ncy. Had the game been in any way rough, or the supporters unruly one could under:tand a demon stration of some kind. A more quiet and happy crowd, although defeated, could not be found. Thanks to the cool heads of the locals they did not retaliate. HIad they done.so, it would 'have meant a rare battle royal. Had the locals so desired they could have lynched the lot of these "hoodlum"' in five minutes, and it would have helped to rid the community of one of the chief dravbacks to, the sport. If the hides of these wasters are as thick as their language, even the lash would have little cffect. All clubs should co-operate to sce that examples be made of the likes of these larrikins. It is a remarkable state of affairs that good...

Then the discussion took place about sweeping gutters, and I said that 1 had not noticed any channels swept in the River Riding, and specially complained about Braybrook and Maidstone gut ters; and notice was 'taken of my complaint, as one of the sweepers was sc:it to Maidstone to attend to the channels within a week. Now, in re gard to paying award rates, 1. wish to notify "Worker" that I always fight for the employees to receive their cor rect wages, and in the sweepers' case I only received verbal information that they were entitled to 14/ a day, and promised to get official Lnformation as scon. as possible, so th...
