Mr Parer's Vitality Crusade 'Sir,-The report of Mr Franci Parer's "vitality ciusades" armongs the people of Frankston is not the least interesting'.of the various art icles in The Standard last issue. At the very outset, let me frankly state that I am antagonistic to fad dists and fanatics of every species - be they religious, economic or any thing in the dietetic line. Yet at the same time one must respect Mr Par er, for -the report states that he practises what he preaches. That shows a honesty of purpose and ab sence-of hypocrisy that must cert ainly be admired. Mr Parer's anti-Medicine stunt is quite out of place. Medicine, say what you like, has done a lot for the human race-even amongst people who live close to-Nature. True, Medicine has been exploited at times by unscrupulous men of degree, but, as Havelock Ellis 'shows, nationalis ation of medicine and health would overcome those evils:- Mr Parer's attitude is the more remarkable as the numerous cases of healing recor ded of...

Bowling Site [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 15 April 1921

Bowling Site We were unable to publish in last issue all the speeches delivered by niembers of the deputation which waited on the coiuci I re the bowling green site. We now record them in this column. - Mr-Munio;r ex.Mayor of Hawthorn; said he was a yearly visitor to Frankston, but' he did' not enjoy himself to the fullest extent .because there wasu no bowlinug oean in. the town. For that raeson niuny visitors went to Healesrvllo, Sorrento,. Lily dale, QueBiesclitfe and 'ther places where bowlers were catered -for. Mr Munro complained that he was compelled to roam about Froakaton like a wanderuing sheep. (Laulghter.) He was pleased when he heard Franketon was to have a bowling green. He wass utterly dumb founded at the modesty of their re quensn in relation to the land asked for on the foreshore, He had in spected the site, and found it a kind of swampy molnss, which badly needed improvement. . They had the chance of making it one of the greatest attractions the town could possess. ...

Sir,-In your report of the depu. tation re Franks on's bowling green site, 1 notice MI Wheeler suggests the formation of a Foreshore Con. mittee, to consider matters relating to foreshore beautification and matters generally. M1r WVhecler,. suggestion is a very valuable one, and should receive the consideration of the Shire Council for not only could a great amount of valuable work be done to beautify tbe fore. shore, but the present antiquated regulations could receive the over hauling they so urgently requirt in order that they may be suitable to present day conditions and ir quirements.

To the Editor.. Sir,-The arguments against the Bowling Green? site are in some ways amusing ; in others, aggravating, be cause of their untruthfulness. Some people have been informed that the whole of the foreshore to the edge of the creek and almost to the water's edge on the beach, with a frontage to Mo-nington Road; from the Tennis Court to Mr Sage's shop, is being as ked for I This is, of course, an abso lute fabrication. Let anyone Interes ted measure 130 frontage from the tennis court and they will agree that after all there is not much re'on to complain about the use of such a pocket handkerchbiet allotment being granted. I understand that for every bathing box, boat shed, .motor shed, &o, on the foreshore, the council de- riees revenue, but, nevertheless, for every shed built the public loses that much foreshore. Adjacent to the proposed bowling green are tto Tea Houses, both of which would derive a certain amount of patronage from the club members and visitors. Cra ...
