HEALTH MENACE [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 3 May 1950
HEALTH MENACE Recently the Melbourne Tram ways Board ordered its first "silent" tramcars. This sensible move to cut down 'avoidable noise is. heartening news.:' It proves that at least 'one. Australian city is determined to curb this men ace to health.. However, care less people are to blame for most of the disturbances that shatter rest and sleep.: Many homes are situated in side streets well away from the tramlines and heavy traffic. Yet their occupants are not allowed to enjoy peace and quiet. * They a.re tormented by inconsiderate neighbours who behave as though they camped in the middle of a ten-thousand-acre paddock. A quiet evening at home means nothing to this rowdy element. The well-being . of neighbours does not matter a jot, to' these noisy folk. Sixth 'grade: Won,'. 6 to 3; scorers, Stubs (2 tries). This' win was the result of good team work. Bryant in the" forwards and HIthaway the full-back deserve mention. -
CALLS FOR CARE [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 3 May 1950
CALLS FOR CARE Few people look forward to washing-up, the inevitable task that follows every meal. They regard the job as a necessary evil. However, washing-up is not done solely to clean the plates and utensils; it is even more important to protect health at the next meal. Failure to remove food par ticles is both dangerous and slovenly. The person who-does not trouble to- keep the water soapy is making the same mis take. Soggy towels, luke-warm water, dirty dishcloths and slip shod methods are equally hazar dous. Bacteria are fostered by. -carelessness at the sink. These carriers of disease are too small to be seen by the naked eye. But that is no excuse for slap dash methods.
WEAK LINK [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 3 May 1950
WEAK LINK "There .is no room for half way methods at the sink. That is something the proprietor of a restaurant often ignores. Wash ing-up is not. a job that can' be entrusted to an inexperienced newcomer. Nor can it be car ried out in an efficient manner by careful employers who lack suitable equipment," declares Dr. J. Grahame Drew, Metropolitan Medical Officer of Health. '"The customer who pays for his meal is entitled to eat in safety. The kitchen is no place for careless hands."
