MUSIC AND FOOTBALL. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 29 April 1921
MUSIC AND FOOTBALL. To the Editor. Sir,-Your last issue has in it a reply to mie from Mr. Morrison re garding strictures made by me. My complaint was a strictly justifiable one -a general complaint about the prac tice of spending money outside the district when it should be spent here. I said that the Frankston Second's Football Club by giving patronage to.a city orchestra for a purely local .euchre party and dance in preference to the 'local orchestra acted to the detriment of the local orchestra and the best interests of the district. That conviction is still cherished by me. Such acts as these have damped the ardor and enthusiasm of the local orchestra so much so that they are likely to disband altogether. Mir. Morrison says I should first make sure of my: facts before rushing into print. .Very. wholesome' advice, but hardly necessary in the circumstances. [ie also requests my name and bon? fides.: 'My name does'nt matter-by giving it my friend's curiosity'would be satisfied, but...

AT LAST. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 May 1921
AT LAST. A wise man who had studied long Desired to achieve renown; Hie sought attention from the throng," But did not play the crank or clown; Be trusted to his work alone., And went unnoticed and unknown. At last he donned a gaudy coat And wore a hat with spreading brim; i-Te toro the collar from his'throat And people stopped to notice him; -, let his hair grow long and made 'it wonder at the part he played. hios shoeiing eccentricities .: 2ihat often made him blush for shame, t-lis work took on the strength to please, The world was busy with his name; That which before had won no. praise Served now to gladden and amaze.

NOT WORTH TRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 May 1921
NOT WORTH TRYING. "To'say, ' a billion,' takes little timo and'to explain its meaning, 'a million times one million,' no great time if needed; but when it comes to count. ing the number, a rather longer period seems called for," remarlrs a mathemo tieian. " If Adam had started to count a bi, lion and was still counting, he would yet be far behind the completion.of so formidable a task. To accomplish the performance a man would be obliged to count 200 a minute for a period of 9,512 years, 342 days, 5 hours and 20 minutes, provided he could count con tinuously. But suppose we allow the counter 12 hours daily for rest, eating and sleeping. Then he rwould need 19,025 years, 319 days, 10 hours and 40 minutes to complete the task."
SOUND TEETH IN PREHISTORIC SKULLS. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 May 1921
SOUND TEETII IN PREHISTORIC SKULLS. Dr. William Wright, lecturer on ana tomy, gave an interestiong account re cently, in the University of Birming ham, of the teeth and jaws in a collec tion of human skulls wthith were found in the East Iiding of Yorkshire. The ltiulls are divided into two groups, the arst consisting of 47 skulls of the Bronze and Neolithic ages, 29 of which are male and 18 are female; the se cond, or later, group of e0 skulls, 13 male and seven female, of the Eairly Iron Age. In the first group the skulls belong to the Celtic or mixed Iberian and Celtic races: those of the second are probably remains of the Teutonic race. The most noticeable features'of the skulls were the teeth. These were regular few were missing, and all free from disease. Among th?e relics 61 the Bronze Age especially, it is no un usual occurrence to find jaws with'the teeth in the most perfect condition ima gil.able.

WHY PLANTS GROW UPWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 6 May 1921
WHiY PLANTS GROW UPWA.D, Why do plants grow upward? Most of us would say that they grow towards the light. But the light explanation does not cover the ground, else in this latilude all the trees in the open fields would bow southward toward the sun. The uprightness of trees and plants, an immensely useful- quality, must have some other cause. , r. Francis Darwin, in a lecture to the Royal So ciety, has been giving the results of some interesting experiments on the subject, dealing with tie question why the plant grows upward and its rootu down. ? In the tips of the roots of certain seedlings it was found there were special cells, each containing a free starch grain, which naturally sank to the bottom, and changed its post: tion if the plant were la1d on its side. The starclh grain, always responding to the eartl's downward attraction, keeps the plant informed of which di rection is up and which down, and so supplied a stimulus determining the growth in a vertical direction. Air. Da...

Many pages detail the fears and hopei of her anxious hue-. band. As it turned out, Sydney Dobell. died at ifty, and his wife survived him for many years.
