MINISTERS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 22 August 1914

MINISTERS' ASSOCIATION. A meeting was held last Tuesday morning in the Vestry of the Church of England. The secretary reported that £2/11/7 was collected at the Special United Service,in the Town Hall, last Sunday night. It was decided ~that, after paying a small account for print ing, the balance be passed over to the local Ladies' Benevolent Society. This was done because the particular case in view when the arrangements for the meeting were made is now amply pro vided for. So many requests having come to hand, it was decided to hold a similar meeting on a future occasion. The action of the secretary in writing letters of thanks to the Mayor and Councillors for the free use of the hall and the press for their valuable sup port; also to the members of the Social itsic Party for kindly giving way to enable the association to hold the meet ing, was heartily endorsed.

GOOD TEMPLARS. The Mutual Help Lodge held its usual meeting on Tuesday evening, in the lodge-room, Graham-street, when there was a good attendance. The effort of the lodge to help raise money for the patriotic fund to relieve distress oc casioned by the war, was supported with enthusiasm, and satisfaction ex pressed at the generous offer of-the management of the Snowden Picture Theatre to allow two-thirds of the amount received for sale of tici-ets to go to the fund.

PORT MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 22 August 1914

PORT MELBOURNE FOOT BALL CLUB. By "Rover." -The season just closed has not been a success, from the premier ship point of view, but otherwise it has been a credit to the manage ment. The players have received over £333 for their servi.ces, which is.close on £Ioo more than in the previous season, and it is a pleas ing fact that no player's expenseS were cut down during the season. The receipts from matches have been more than double the amount derived from those of the previous season, which goes to show that, with a successful team, the coIm mittee would be able to meet their obligations without worrying where every week's money was to come frnm Although-the club was only suc cessful in winning 7 out of the 18 matches played during the season, it-was unlucky in a number of en gagements, and, with the least slice of luck, would have been in the final four. The committee, at the start of· the season, made an effort to se cure the services of a good coach, and A. Eason, the well-known ...

Crichton, gave an account of his stewardship. Cr. W. Howe.

ROUND THE CHURCHES. The iinited service held in the Town Hall last Sunday evening was very satisfactory. There was a good at tendance, and all seemed to appre ciate the effort.

Joyce, and addresses were de livered by the Rev. W. M'Kie and Mr. R. L. Mason. Mkiss TiacLean ren dered a solo most effectively. A col lection was taken whilh amounted to £2/11/7. This is to be devoted to charity.

MEASLES. No Hospital Accommodation. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 22 August 1914

MEASLES. No Hospital Accommodation. The case of a Port Meliourne child w-ho was suiffering from measles, and subsequently developed bronchitis and pnehmonia, was mentioned by Cr Cri-ithton, at the local council on Tuesday evening. He dealt exhaus tively with the case, and said it was almost incredible that the child should have been refused admission to all the hospitals. Death might have ensued if the Council, at a spe cial meeting, had not decided to se cure a nurse for the child. Hie moved that a letter be forwarded to the Minister of Health informing him of the circumstances. Tlhe time had come when some definite action would have to be taken. Cr. Sinclair, in seconding, said he thought the rhole system of looking after our sick was hopelessly out of joint. If the Government or the municipalities, jointly, did not take ameliorative acion, then the munici pality had a duty to perform and should establish private cottage hos pitals. The Rev. M?r. Joyce and Mr. Heath had done all t...
