OBITUARY Returned Soldier Passes Mr. A. Frazer [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 12 January 1940
OBITUARY &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Returned Soldier Passes Mr. A. Frazer We regret to record the death of Mr. A. Frazer, of Hurstbridge, who passed away at Coburg on December 29. The well-known and popular Bert Frazer served with the A.I.F. during the Great War and has resided at Hurstbridge for the past ten years. Although he had not been in good health for some time his death was unexpected. He was a live member of the Panton Hill Returned Soldiers' Club from &nbsp; which he will be greatly missed as he was a regular attendant at meet ings and a willing helper at all the Club social functions. Being of a kindly and courteous disposition, good fellowship simply radiated from him. He was prone to look for good in his fellow beings and quick to appreciate any service or acts of kindness. There will be a touch of pathos at the Club's next meeting when the minutes of the December meeting are read as resolutions were moved by him expressing the ...

These rates were an nounced by the Prime Minister at Canberra in November. The quantity of flour sold is equi valent to about 7,000,000 bushels of wheat. This very large sale, while reduc ing considerably the liability of the Commonwealth Government in dis posing of the wheat crop for the growers, still leaves about 50,000, 000 bushels to be sold.

Glen Vale ELECTRIC LIGHT IN APRIL [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 19 January 1940
Glen Vale ELECTRIC LIGHT IN APRIL Plans for the extension of the electric light supply from Whittlesea to Glen Vale have been approved by the Commission, and if work proceeds to schedule, Glen Vale will have the light by the middle of April. A survey of the land is already be ing carried out, and the erection of poles will commence immediately this is finished. Although the two-mile extension of the. electric light has attracted only nine additional subscribers, the Commission has sound reasons for considering the expense of construct ion worth while. If people are not sub-dividing and selling their farms as house blocks, says the Commission, it means that the farms are returning large enough incomes to satisfy the landowners. Therefore, while there is not a build ing boom or any material increase in the size of the population, the resi dents of the district are permanent. If the Commission can supply elec tric light at a small cost to these people and help to make their lives more ...
