(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 12 May 1939
(T'Co the- Editor.) Sir,-The time is long overdue when a frank statement should be made as to what precisely is the policy of the council of the Shire of Frankston and Hastings upon' the question of providing a public hall to serve the requirements of the commu nity. For months past the council has repeatedly been urged to proceed with the scheme, but the strong rep resentations which have been made by the public bodies representing the ratepayers have been virtually flouted and have resulted only in studied eva sion of the issue. The suggestion that the subject is a delicate one is not very helpful ,nor is it an acceptable excuse for inac "tion;' a.situation is only embarrassing when one is embarrassed in it.

PLAZA THEATRE FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, MAY 12 AND 13 The Ritz Brothers, three of the screens most popular comedians, will be seen on' Friday and Saturday in their funniest picture to date, Ken tucky Moonshine. Interwoven with the plot is a romance between tthe well-known singer, Tony Martin, and Marjory Weaver.

STREET LIGHTING SCHEME. Council to Experiment. Prior to.the probable installation in Frankston of a new system of street lighting, seven lights, similar in style to those in use. at the Mile Bridge, will be' installed .in the streets of Frankston. Cr Pratt told the last meeting of the council -that similar lights were seen at a recent visit to Hawthorn and Box Hill. The lights gave at least twice as much visibility as the present groups of three at the cor ners of the streets of Frankston. The present clusters of three cost £11, while the cost of the new lig'hts would be £14. He moved that the State Electricity Commission be asked to in stal, as an experiment, the new type of lamp at each end of the gardens in the main street, two adjacent to the railway station in Young street, and one at=the corner of Playne street and Young street. The motion was seconded by Cr Oates and carried.
