NAMING RESEARCH ROAD (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 21 March 1940
NAMING RESEARCH ROAD - (To the Editor.) Sir,-In answer to Mrs. Storey's letter in reference to the naming of Pine Avenue, there is' a misunder standing. I asked permission: to name a road in front of our own premises Pine Avenue, for conven ience of town visitors, trading, etc. not the road from the store up as previously stated. I say with a num ber of other Research people that all side streets should have a name for the convenience of visitors, and would help to make Research better known. Thanking Mrs. Storey for her letter. Yours etc., M. E. CONNELL. "The Chums" Research, March 12.
Correspondence PROGRESS ASSOCIATIONS (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 21 March 1940
Correspondence PROGRESS ASSOCIATIONS (To the Editor.) .Sir,-The difficulties of the I1l tham Betterment League reported in last week's issue of "The Advertiser" i. a comment on a sad lack of com munity spirit common to most of our Australian rural centres. In effort to stimulate interest and to counter act the lethargy, Progress Associ ations are always changing or moui fying their names just as political parties think a change of name will inspire support! It has been found that often Progress Associations arc hampered in their real work by of ficials of various activities who strive --often -successfully-to stiifle heal;thy criticism of inefficiency in public services. This discourages many vigorous people who do not, care to resist the contentions of fel low members. Eltham seems to suf fer also, because unworthy citizens 'take it out of tradespeople" who dare to enter public service by way of progress associations. In a few cases the associations ex ist only as an individual sec...

PANTON HILL SHOW SEASON WORST EVER [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 21 March 1940
PANTON HILL SHOW SEASON WORST EVER When the Panton Hill Fruitgrow .rs decided early in the year to re vive their annual show and to hold it on Easter Saturday, March 23 there was not, as in the days of Julius Caesar a soothsayer present to bid them "Beware of the Ides of March" Although the fruitgrowers had quite enough warning to view the coming of the first of March with apprehen sion, little did they expect the .weather to play the tricks it did. Had they known that this usually well hehaved month. was going to treat them to a couple of severe frosts as well as a week's heat wave with the temperature at over 100 degrees, they would probably have drapped the show like the proverbial hot spud. Visitors to the show on Sat urday are therefore reminded that the growers have had to contend with a very difficult season, and if the dis play is not up to the* usual high standard, then ,sympathise with the producers who reside in waterless districts. The show will be officially opened at 2...

MERNDA MECHANICS' INSTITUTE OFFERED TO COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 21 March 1940
MERNDA MECHANICS' INSTITUTE OFFERED TO COUNCIL In a letter to the Council on Wed nesday, the President of the Mernda Mechanics' Institute and Library: of fered to .allow the Council to take over the buildings and library, pro viding the Council's office was tranis ferred and the meetings' held there. It was stated that there is an over draft at the bank of £9.

SHOOTING BY SPOTLIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 21 March 1940
SHOOTING BY SPOTLIGHT The grave -danger caused 'to human life and stock by people who came out in cars a( night and shot from the moving vehicle by the light of a spotlight was stressed by Coun cillor Gardiner at the Council meet ing on Monday. j;. He pointed out that several such instances had occuired in.the vicinity of his property on the Epping-Morang Road within the past few weeks, and added that First Constable Ellis had stated that he was unable to take any action unless it could be proved that a person was firing dangerously. "Are we to wait until our stock is shot and then run around looking for someone?" he asked. Co.uncillor Orgill pointed out that it was an offence to shoot from a moving vehicle. Councillor Gardiner said that it was a risky business going out in the dark to order anyone off, but un less something was done some resi dents would take the matter into their own hands.
