Pvahran Football-Club. ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of the Prahran Football Club was held on Monday 16th February, the chair being occupied by Mr. H. McCartney. In the annual report the committee noted with regret that the members' roll for 1913 had shown a decrease upon the previous year's list. Atten tion was also drawn to the unsatis factory state of the outer fence at Toorak Park, and it was hoped that the City Council would have the mat ter remedied prior to the coming sea 0on.

Of these one was lost by a single point; a second by three points, and a third by four points only, Regretful reference was made to the retirement of Mr R. J. Wyles, who for 11 years acted in various offices for the club. Framed certiicates for long ser liCe were presented to th...

Pure Food Act. At the St. Kilda Council meeting on Monday, 16th February, a letter was received from the Grocers' Associa tion, enclosing a resolution carried at a meeting of that body on the 20th January, as follows:-"That when samples of food are obtained from grocers and storekeepers under the Pure Food Act, or any other Act of Parliament, by the municipal autho rities, and such samples prove to be genuine, pure and unadulterated, no tification of such shall be forwarded to the secretary of the Grocers' As sociation of Victoria, on behalf of the tradesmen, as soon as possible after the analyst's report has been received.

Hegarty's Ladies' Baths. SHOULD THEY BE DEMOLISHED? [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914

Hegarty's Ladies' Baths. SHOULD THEY BE DEMOLISHED? At St. Kilda Council meeting on Monday, 16th Feb., Cr. Hewison move as follows:- "That the council wait as a depu tation on the Minister for Lands to urge the immediate demolition and removal of Hegarty's Ladies' Baths, and to protest against the issue of any further lease for the site re cently occupied by Hegarty's Ladies Baths. He said that the policy of the council was to keep the sand clean for the children, and keep bathers out in the deep water. It was absurd to say that the present baths had rights with which they were interfering. The proprietors had got all that they had paid for. The present position was a disgrace to St. Kilda. He disagreed with the suggestion of the foreshore committee that the council should build baths. He would not sacrifice the children for the ladies. Cr. Love seconded the motion. Cr. Barnet said that, although many desired to go in for mixed bathing, there were other ladies who preferred privacy,...

Aviation Under Fire. The Balkan campaign has proved eery valuable to the science of avia tion. It has shown by, one con crete example that the niere fact of Iieing struck by bullets and perfo rated does- not signify irretrievable dlisastir- for the airship. The Rus-. siun aviator, Efimolff, was engaged by B3ulgaria to fly to Adriailople and throw down handbills in the Turkish language, in which the Bul garians called on the population of Adrianople to surrender. - Te was only given an old apparatus, but lie threw- down the' bills. :'At Fort Karaga'ch I saw a considerable .nunm ber. of infantry men shootings - to wvards the: sky -with their rifles.

Bowling. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914

Bowling. BY J0oWLER. Last Saturday's weather was all in favor of bowlers. One of the principal features of the play lay in the fact that Auburn beat Melbourne, on Mel bourne's Windsor green, by one point. E. M. Pascoe (skip), Upton, Frank Dunham, and Dickenson were one point up against Stronach, but Ros crow (A.) took the shine off by scor ing 31 against W. J. Pascoe, Le Couilliard, Andrews, and Von Mylius, 25. Young (A.) also upset Lewis' calculations by 28 to 22. Lewis had with him Kemp, Morton and Elbes hausen. G. W. Sims (with him John Doeg, Bleach, and U. Sims) made a plucky recovery, by beating the oppos ing rink (Padbury) by 26 to 16, but when the totals were finally announced it was seen that the game ended thus -Auburn 95, Melbourne 94. It was a good game, and Melbourne took their defeat in that sportsmanlike manner which is so natural to them. Richmond Union (for whom Kelly, the St. Kilda city surveyor still plays, and whose rink totted up 33), beat Brighton by 119 to 95. ...

Church Meetings. All Saints', St. Kilda. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914

Church Meetings. All Saints', St. Kilda. The annual meeting of the above church was held in the Gregory Memorial Hall on Tuesday evening, when there was a good attendance of parishioners. The reports of the secretary and treasurer were read and confirmed. The treasurer stated that they com menced the year with a debt to the bank of £47/4/11, and closed it owing £93/7/4. The actual amount of income for the year was short of the expendi ture by £64/9/1. This was caused by an increased-though temporary outlay in connection with the choristers, and a much-needed addition to the incomes of the curate and or ganist: During the year a large sum of money was expended on me church and grounds, but the expenditure in curred was provided by a special ap peal, so therefore did not encroach on the ordinary income. Mr. W. E. Comport suggested that if the parishioners would put by Id. for every day in Lent, the sum subscribed would wipe out the existing deficit, and the incoming vestry would start...
