HASTINGS-TYABB v. ROSEBUD. WIN ON BELL. This match was played at Hastings and again the home team were de feated, but only by. four points..

However, as they are building up a very nice side, they hope for future success. .Both teams were fully rep resented, and that popular player, G.

LET'S WRITE A LETTER TO ALL LOCAL RESIDENTS, [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 16 June 1939
LET'S WRITE A LETTER oOo TO ALL LOCAL RESIDENTS, Dear People,-Did it ever occur to you that this district can benefit greatly from local, sporting competitions, quite apart from the recreation they afford .participants. Local football and cricket competitions can bring, a substantial volume of business to local traders-if the traders go after it. The necessary requirements of these clubs are obvious to you ,and if the clubs receive the support they should, from the public, then-the benefit to local trade ?would be something to crow about. As it is, many local junior competitions just manage to exti t; and if it' were not for the. usual handful, of enthusiasts of which every club sseems to boast, then the players of those clubs would be compelled to swell the ranks of onlookers at professional games; and traders would .lose thei business they get even now, the while, the. Federal Government bleats about National Fitness. Cricket and football keep lads fit; cricket and football will a...

WHAT, AGAIN? [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 16 June 1939
W AT, AGAI N ? 000 The announcement last, wek ,.that theFederal Government was floating a six million loan in London caused more Tban a surprise. After the tremendous trouble which occurred in this country in the early .'thirties" as' a result of. overborrowing one overseas markets, Australians-or rather those who bother to think--formed the opinion that never again would the Commonirealth; resort to pat rozilsing thel pawhnhops of Europe. And we now learn that a loan of £6,000,000 was sought, which would cost about ,5 per cent, and when it is finally repaid, will have involved the people of this country in a tribute of £12,000,000 to the financial controllers of the world. Borrowing is a curse, even it be done here in this country, but' when Australian politicians and Aus tralia's High Commissioner-Hon. S. M Bruce--again put the country into pawn, then all one can say is that it is hopeless to expect Aus tralia to` prgreis while such men dictate its policy. After the recent rebuff ...

Your Safety Valve PUBLIC HALL. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 16 June 1939
Y our Safety Valve (A column for you. Let'srhave your views in brief on any topic. excepting religion. Every lettqr must bear the writer's name and address. not necessarily for publication. Head correspondence. "Safety Valve.") PUBLIC IHALL. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I have noticed several cor respondents complaining about ,,the shire council inot building an elabor ate town hall to be in keeping with the progression of the town. Gener ally, one also suggests a new railway station, which to my mind is over the fence. Mr Clapp, I think, would be the nman to blame for any shortcom ings there. Now, if it is admitted'.*by residents in Frankston that a public hall should be built, then the: rig'ht procedure I think would be for the president of some public body-say, the council or perhaps the president of the ligilance committee-to call a public meeting, put the position to the meeting ,and see what those at the meeting would be prepareed to donate. Then, stippose you get promises for a thou...

FOOTBALL FRANKSTON TOO STRONG FOR NAVAL DEPOT. Frankston secured a comfortable victory over the Naval Depot team at Franktdon last Sathrday.

In spite of absentees due to influ enza. the Naval Dejiot teamin gave the red and blacks one of their sternest struggles, and forced them to display their best football. Fiankston were, on the whole, more purposeful in attack and surer in de fence, where Harry and Staff were very prominent. Staff, who was forced to leave. the ground in the last quarter with an in jured shoulder, was replaced by Rosehbrbck. Crowe, Naval Depot's 17-year-old rover, was the outstanding player on the ground, and bagged four goals. A feature of the match was, the long kicking of. the respective full backs, Conlon and Harry.

"FELIX HOLT" SAYS [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 16 June 1939
"FELIX HOLT" SAYS. THAT Australia does not seem to grasp all the advantages which have been presented to her by nature. Take her spa resorts and compare the publicity they get 'and the condition they are in, with those in England and Germany. Yet there la nothing finer in the world than the spa of Hepburn Springs, Daylesford. Yet, today, Hepburn is only slightly changed to what it was twenty years ago. ! Hundreds of local people go there every year for their vacation, and they go despite the lack of enterprise of the Government in this great national asset. If £50,000 were spent 'on developing. Hepburn and £20,000 on advertising it in other' countries, -the capital expenditure would be recovered from foreign' tourists' inside twelve .months. But the trouble with Hepburn is that it_ suffers under too many authorities the Park. Trust, the local Council, State Parliament and Federal' Par liament-not to mention various. departments which stick their use less noses in from time to time-a...

SPORTING HIGHLG HT o0o Woe to Chickens! Chickens. born and bred in the United States of America are in for..a bad time round about August, because three wandering American citizens will return to their homeland in that imonth .vith theii pockets lined 'with: gold, and with a ravishing hiunger foif "bird." The wan derers are . colored gentlemen-and they are reald gentlemen-Jackie Wilson, Ossie Stewart and Jihnny Hutchison-who have done more to re'eetablisb the fistic art lin this country than any' importation since Johnson. This trio have had a victorious season. They are all great boxers, but the one we particularly fancied was young Jackie Wilson -a ' featherweight. We watched Jackie give Australia's leading iatherwieight-Mickey Miller-a boxing lesson recentlyi and it was almost unbelievable to witness how amateurish Miller, was made to appear by his master. Jackie's left-either used strai-!ght, hooked or swunig-was a tantalisingly dangerous weapon, a?nd the use of it "'tiaight" wa...
