A Good Suggestion. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 28 January 1911
A Good Suggestion. A gentleman prominent iu local sporting circles lias suggested to us that it seems hardly fair that tho players in cricket, football and other games, iu which they are called upou to defend the prestige of the Cowra district-, should have the whole of the cost of travelling, entertaining, etc., thrust on their shoulders, as in the aggregate it totals a considerable sum-far too much for the slender resources of most young fellows. With a view to doing away with .this our friend suggests the holding of a social or progressive euchre party for the purpose- of raising money with which to establish the nucleus of a fund from which at least portion of incidental sporting expenses could'bo met. Wo commend the suggestion to tho thoughtful consideration of our readers, as we consider same a decid edly good idea and easily capable of accomplishment. .
