Sunshine United v. Geelong [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 17 May 1924
Sunshine United v. Geelong By "'Perthitc." The match with Gcclong was play ed on 10th May, Splendid and en couraging I These words sum utp the result -of last Saturday's Soccer match, when the local teamt divided the honors with Geclong United. There was a large attendance of spectators p)rescnt, and the vocal en couragcnent received from the young clencnt, who turned up in their dozens, was particularly gratifying to the players and club officials. It was a hard fought but cleanly played galme throughout, and was most cffi ciently handled by Mr. Locklhcad, a League Refercc, whose close grip of the game was evident throughout. The following is a brief resume of the Jplayers who so ably kept the flag of the United flying: Fulton (goal) gave a magnificent display of goalkccping; saved his side repeat cdly; a bit inclined to risk too much at times. Barr and Chisolm (backs): Both good tacklers, and played a steady game throughout. A. Burns (left half, captain): A great game; is an ideal...
NOTES FROM GASPER'S DIARY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 17 May 1924
NOTES FROM GASPER'S DIARY. Saturday, 10th-Up betimes, and hurriedly clean fowls' perches., Greatly excited and therefore. refuse the savoury meats prepared by the goodly housewife. This day to the Soc cer match. There I see many strange affairs. Greatly amazed I seek out Charlie Whiting, but he waves a -white rag at me (I think he means to drive me away lest I puncture the ball). Then a young fellow cries "corner :', and methinks I've reached the Stadium, but I'm mistaken. It is merely a kick in at goal, and then the game grows very heady. Another roars " Off-side, " and I hide mine eyes, fearing his little pants have become unloosened. Greatly do I wish that Sunshine 'United will win, but the game ends in a draw. At which I am pleased, for both teams are com posed of goode fellows. As dark ness creeps on apace, I set the pace to Braybrook, and putting off side I hie into a corner, and as there is no chance to d:aw a Sun shine United I slack my weary throat with a Carlton United, wh...
A Complete Local Story The Rich Uncle from Fiji. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 17 May 1924
A Complete Local Story The Rich Uncle from Fiji. By JOHN NOLAN The age of romance is not dead, and the field is here, in our midst, in this picturesque, quaint, historic old burg called Melbourne, with its won- derful cluster of satellite cities around it. The isles of Greece, where burning Sappho loved and sung, cannot compare with our won- derful environment. Flodden Field &nbsp; is not on a par with our Sandridge Bend. I see as much cosmopolitan color, and gather as much glorious inspiration on the Queen's wharf, on the Yarra, as I would on the quay at Rotterdam. I prefer the Salt- water River to the Bosphorus. As for the muezzin and the miniarets— give me, for suggestiveness, in pre- ference, the clear insistent note of the siren at the Harvester Works at Sunshine, and the long array of elec- tric current towers that stretch at hundred-yard intervals from New- port to Morwell—full five score of miles. Lovesick swains have forded the Maribyrnong on wintry nights to speak ...

From Traybrook Progress' Associa tion, drawing attention to footpath on Ballarat Road, between Cornwall Road and Hampshire Road. The footpath was opened up by postal authorities, and council should put same in proper order, and bill the Departnient; also drawing attention to box thorns overhanging the foot path, and to catch-water drain, which requires opening. The secretary said the old path was destroyed, and a new path would be made. Cr, Pridham said he hoped the secretary should do the work of repairing the footpaths dug up by the Postal De partment.

AROUND THE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 17 May 1924
AROUND THE DISTRICT. - Mr. Henry Kettle, senior, has left Gisborne to reside elsewhere. Mr. Kettle has been idolised by all resi dents and particularly by the Old Boys' Association, as though he was entitled to a patriachal reverence. The reason for this is due to the fact that he is the oldest Victorian native now alive and like the sturdy old pioneers, has had his day and done his bit towards placing Victoria in the proud position she holds to day. Mr. Kettle has actually grown up with Victoria, and it is safe to say that both he and Victoria were in swaddling clothes at one and the same time. Mr. Henry Kettle was born somewhere close to the corner of Flinders Lane and Swanston Street, Melbourne, away back on the 14th July, 1838. He was baptised by the Rev. William Waterfleld, the first Congregationalist clergyman who ever set foot in Victoria, some where about the site of the present Bull and Mouth Hotel, Bourke Street, Melbourne, on the 29th July, 1838. Since the year 1843 Mr. K...

DRIVING WITHOUT LIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 24 May 1924
DRIVING WITHOUT LIGHTS -0- It is not unlikely that the danger ous custom of driving after nightfall without lights will be put ia stop to altogether, but the local Council seems determined to minimise the habit. Cr. McKay, on Monday, remarked that when Police Officer Alford was here, breakers of the regulati6n were frequently haled before the Bench and the Shire got a tidy revenue therefrom. It was very dangerous to travel the roads these nights. On Monday evening he counted seven vehicles 'on the road between Foot scray and Sunshine without lights. The Secretary said', under the law, the Shire Inspector could take action. Previous to his appointment, r'the police took action, getting half the fines. Under the Police Offence's Act, the.police have full power.' The President said whoen the 'Coun cil went into the matter of ajpointiing an inspector it took into consideration the amount of money that was paid to the police in fines, and expected to get that returned from the inspector'...

STANDING FOR PARLIAMENT [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 24 May 1924
STANDING FOR PARLIAMENT It seems strange that the privilege "M.H.R." or "M.L.A." after one's nanc' should be, obtained by a pio cess.ýso radically different frdm that by which almost any other combina tion .of letters can be added to one's style5 and title. All other such com binations of letters are obtained by the exercise of pleasureable activities -in many cases without an tdffort, and without much expense. To be come a Member of Parliament one Ihas to toil and pay; often to be abused,' belittled, robbed, ridiculed, kicked for one's pains; and, after all, not even to be thanked. The right to write "13.A." or "M.A." has been attained in easy stages, along a de lightful road of reading in the hap piest days of one's life-those spent at college. The same may be said of "M.D.," the magic letters that ad mit to a lucrative and honored pro fession. A man with "V.C." is to be worshipped as a hero for sonic brave act, occupying, perhaps, five minutes of his life. Wherever we turn, we fi...

CORRESPONDENCE The Editor Sunshine Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 24 May 1924
CORRESPONDENCE The Editor Sunshine Advocate. Sir,-In your issue of this date (May 17) I notice in the report of the Braybrook Shire Council a letter was read from J. R. Robin son asking permission to remove -a tree in Sun Crescent in'front of the entrance to his motor drive. As Mr Robinson, in company with some 300 other boys from the Shire of Braybrook, was "doing his bit"' at the front when the trees were planted in Sun Crescent--(many thought the name would be changed to Soldiers' Avenue)-might I tell him that the fathers and well wishers of those who were risk ing their lives spent some Satur day afternoons in removing the guards from the Boundary Road, to protect the trees, that there were plenty of heavy hearts and silent tears on the Saturday af ternoon when mothers, wives and dear friends, planted the trees. Maybe the ;tree he wants to re move is greatly prized by the one who set it, I cannot say who it was as at present the name plates are away, but one thing is certain tha...

Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY, MAY 24th, 1914 The movement towards changing the system of local government in Sun shine to that. of a borough is likely to be held up for some time, as during the months of May, June, July and August no pectitions are received by the Public Works Dcpartment for al teration of boundaries of municipali ties. It was stated at the last iacct ing of the Progress Association that should the petition not be lodged be fore the end of May twelve months would be lost before another petition, but apparently a petition may be lodged any time during the year. ex cept during the months mentioned, Outside the ranks of the local Pro gross Association and that of Bray brook no active part in the movement in favour of a borough is being taken by the ratopayers, but several busi nIss men and prominent ratepayers are favourable towards Sunshine be ing proclaimed a borough, chiefly on account of disproportionate represen tation of the town population in the local council.
