COUNCIL'S HOSPITAL GRANT. (To the Hospital.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 16 June 1939
COUNCIL'S HOSPITAL GRANT. (To the Hospital.) Sir,-That was the noblest gesture of them all. When I read in your last. issue that the Frankston and Hastings, Shire Council has so gener ously promised the magnificent dona tion of £1000 (I hope you get these figures right) I felt immediately fired with an inspiration; namely, to follow such a noble example. True, I labor under the initial disadvantage of not ovning an indebtedness of over £61,000, but I think I may be able to overcome that, but in a very much smaller way; 'I mean, of course, on a much smaller scale. I suppose the council is so- overcome with remorse at the Australian Government falling down on its job so badly as to leave such unimportant. matters as national health to the lesser forms of govern ment that they feel. themselves forced 'into this action. (I wonder how the member for the district views it?) And as I certainly cannot do better than following so fine an example,e what I propose to do is to establish a tiny ...

(To the Editor.) Sir,--Mr Tomasetti prefaces his let ter of 9th inst. with an expression of regret for hIis inability to accept my challenge to participate in a idebate on the public hall question. May I preface my reply with an assurance that 1 was disappointed, but not sur. prised, because no doubt he found it dillicult to marshal enough material points to present a convincing case His reference to my ability as a pub lie speaker was rather amazing, p:r ticularly so when it is well known that I am only in my infancy regard. ing that qualification. However, th, ompliment possibly served his pur pose, for, after all, "a lame excuse is better than none." 1 presume that the suggested debate would not be ad judicated upon by a judge, therefore such points as fluency, language and deportment would not be 'taken into. account, but the subject matter of the debate (which would be:judged by the public) would 'be the determining fad tor. Therefore there exists no ground for apprehension on ...

BUNKER'S REPLY. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 16 June 1939
BUNKER'S REPLY. (To the Editor.) Sir,-In last issue Disgusted again distinguishes himself with a letter re markable fo'r its lack of constiructve argurmeilt, and is also an excellent ex ample of his acting upon the principle of when you have no argument, abuse your opponent. In this letter I am referred to as a writer of pure bunkum, a consorter with persons moss-covered with age and inactivity, an allypof the unintel ligent section of the community, a confidanlte bf. the municipal chamber of secrecy, and to sum up, a composer of an evasive and unintelligent letter. On the contra side, although not given, I inferentially take credit for my support of the aged and infirm in their simple recreative pleasures.: In my letter I only touched on one particular phase raised by Disgusted, that is wherein I maintained the con struction of a golf course and the care of the bowling green were more pro gressive actions for increasing Frank ston's prosperity than the erectionz of a town hall. I g...
