GAS EMPLOYES CONTRIBUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 29 August 1914
GAS EMPLOYES CONTRIBUTE. In connection with the efforts put forth for increasing the Patriotic Fund, it will interest our readers to know that a meeting of the employes of the Metropolitan Gas Company, South Melbourne Works, was held on Friday last, at which it was decided that 21 per cent. of the wages of the employes should be donated to the Fund for a period of three months, or longer if necessary. The meeting was the largest and most enthusiastic ever held at the works, and was presided-over by Mr. C. W. Howlett, superintendent, of the works. Cheers were given for the King and Empire at the conclusion. We understand that this fine contri bution applies .to all the employes of the company, and should result in a very substantial addition to the Fund. It is interesting to note-in viewV of the remarks made by the Mayor (Cr. A. L. Page) at the lastcnheeting of the P.L.C., las to alleged coercion: on. the part of State School teachers to obtain patriotic contributions of pence from t...
PATRIOTIC MOVEMENT. Local Ladies Assist. Enthusiastic Inaugural Gathering. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 29 August 1914
PATRIOTIC MOVEMENT. SLocal Ladles: Assist. SEqthusiastcl Inaugural Gathering. It has doubtless given rise to much regret locally-and throughout the metropolis for that matter-that an initiative.was not given by .the mayor in the matter of drawing Port Mel bourne into, the ever-widening cirle' -that has accepted the present welter of war on the continent of. Europe as a. deplorable fact and has decided to -make Thomas Atkins, Esq:, and. his. dependants - as comfortable as possible, physically and .mentally, in the. circumstances.. To provide for Tommy's bodily comforts when on ac tive service were: surely just and humane, and to raise funds for the relief of possible eventual distress among his dependents may also be regarded as a wise previsionary course that will be conducive to a modicum of peace of mind. Unfor tunately such a worthy movement had hung fire in Port ' ealhbourn until the ladies of the district took the matter in hand-and, in response to the con vocation of Mrs. A.. ...

Material help of a very practical character will be given to the Lady May oress's patriotic fund. by the donation that will come from the fac tory of -Messrs. Swallow and Ariell. Ltd. The idea was first mooted about a fortniiht aro. when some of the female employes expressed willing ness to help. The movement was in every way fostered by the proprie tary, who eventually gave definite shape to the idea by purchalsing large rolls of the best flannel. It was de cided that the garments made should be of one type, and the Cardigan jacket was decided upon. Eight first rate hands at cutttin.--out were dis covered anmongst the employe vol unteers-of whom there were 290, out of about 400-and the first pai.t of the work was speedily got in hand. Then each of the volunteer's took one or two of the garments in the rough. and did the needlework in her own home. . Towards the middle of the present week the work had prac...
