OBSERVATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 12 September 1919

OBSERVATIONS; (By "The Mail 011 the Wire.'") Saturday's semi was. full of excite ment from , start to finish, and _?tt "le mons" it was anyone's game. Shields played .exceptionally well, his roving being splendid, and not lacking in dash: whilst he.also kept Dick Chiri ner.quiet on the wing. What would Ramblers do without Taylor and Adams,? vToin had a "spe cial" put on him, yet this, seemed-to make little difference; whilst Bill put in solid work, especially when in ruck. : Quintrell. iviio,..played -his second .match since his recent illness, showed that he had lost none of his old form, and twice found the big uprights, al though faulty kicking robbed him on a couple of occasions. Frank Dodd .is not the footballer of by-gone days, but the. match should im prove him for to-morrow's tussle. Virgin and Brimage were about the best of the remainder of the Ramblers' eighteen. Leo parrell was the shining star in the Uniteds. His roving and play through out was a treat to watch. What a p...

CORRESPONDENCE. DAWSON v. TEROWIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 12 September 1919

CORRESPONDENCE. DAWSON v. TEROWIE. Sir-rlii reference to the unsports manlike report of the above match which appeared in your laist issue, I wish to contradict certain statements that were made. First of all, it was stated that Terowie was out in strong . force. I might state that Terowie was minus some of their best players; in fact, it was only on the understand ing that we should have, a supper and dance i which we never *got} that we managed to raise a team for the day's outing. Judging from the reception we received one would have thought that we were, an invading force of Huns, rather than a peaceable team of lootjjaliers, and the impression that one gets, from the Dawson report is that we, the Terowieites, are nothing but a mob of hoojigans, whilst the D&wsons' regard themselves as angels. In reference to language used, I might -state that the Dawson players easily held ' their own inthat respect. As for the lady barrackers being dis gusted,-they were too far off to ...

THE PEACE LOAN AND THE RETURNED MEN. "The bandits of Robin Hood's da^-s used to demand your rioi ev or your life. We do not want your life. We want your money."-The Prime Min ister, New Adelaide, August 29. In connection with the New Ade laide Peace Loan Day, an event work ed up through the patriotism of the Central Traders' Association, the district was paid the signal honour of a personal visit from the Prime Minister to advocate the cause of the Peace Loan. Mr. Hughes has come hack with a most intimate knowledge of all that the Australian soldier has done, and the biggest tribute to the work that he has done for Australia, and is doing for the soldier, lies in the tact that 300,000 of Australia's lighting men stand behind him to a man. He is now affectionately cai'.ed by the Digger the "Whizz-bang of Australia.'. During his eloquent appeai. delivered from the rostrum of Messrs. Charles Moore's, on Friday, the l'rime Minis ter made no mistake about informing the people of the obje...

NORTH - EASTERN FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION - Second Semi-Final. -Ramblers Defeat Uniteds. (Bv "Onlooker."') The second semi-final match in con nection with the above association was played on the Show Grounds last Sat urday. The weather was cold and , win'iy, whicn marred the contest to a great extent. The attendance was good, considering circumstances, and keen lexcileinent prevailed during' the pro gress of the match. Both teams, were minus several of their chosen eighteen. A strong south-west breeze was blowing throughout, and consequently play was mostly along the eastern wing. Mr. M, Wald umpired, and. taking all things into consideration, gave a good exhibi tion. He overlooked many breaches or. both sides, but players and supporters of each team left the ground Icnowing tljey had been ven - av 'fair deal, which appears to be the main item in country . football -umpiring.
