Constance Talmadge [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 13 May 1921
Constance Talmadge Constance Talmadge is at the very pinnacle of popularity as a picture artist, and the picture theatres are always crowded out when she's shbow ing. This is no idle statement, but a fact, and local enthusiasts - should not fall to see "Two Weeks" and" those eyes of Connie's at work among the three bachelors to-morrow night. "Two Weeks" makes the fifth of the Delightful One's pictures screened at the Frankston Pictures since their inception. "The Lessonl" and "A Temperamental 'Wife" were :`good, and "A Virtuous Vamp" end ''Veiled Adventure" were better, but . "Two Weeks" puts 'em all in the shade.

Mr Vicars Interviewed When asked whether he would comment on the above, Mr Vicars made the following statement : - "I would just like to state that had the lady stsck to the trith aiid not tried to , vilify me in the eyes'of my comrades b~; m'aking misleading statements to. some of them, no douilbt':*ith thle object of caiusing a split in our branch, she would ngt have received the censure and pibli city which she did get. Mrs Burton states that on passing my place at 5 p.m on' Anzac Day it was .'open and doing busin'ess and that. The Fernery was closed.. She thought to mislead them into believing. that I had been open all day and The Fer nery clbsed, which is. not ~orrect. I did re open at five or slightly.la ter; and was quite within bounds in doing so. For Mrs Burton's special edification, : would also say thait I did, not, sign any agreement to close on Anzac Day, as I. consider it the dutyjof everylnoyal citizen' to perpet unte the memory and to honor our fallen comrades.

Mary Miles Minter [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 13 May 1921
Mary. Miles Minter Mary Miles Minter will share'the limelight with' Constance Talmadge to-morrow night. • "Wives and Other Wives" is a'comedy drama of cdm plications which " would make a hun-' gry oat smile.': Ii4this picture, two wives flght'over their hubbles. ' Eacli imagines that the other is trying to steal her hubby, but, as a matter of fect,- neither of them were guilty. "Wives and Other Wives" is one of the beet comedies of recent times and should attract a large audience to morrow night.
"The Golden Girl" [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 13 May 1921
"The Golden Girl" ''The Golden Girl,"-as Mary Miles Minter is called in" America, has ap-?l pesred here two or three times previ ously, but, like the Talmadge girls, she is always welcome. Mary's real name is Juliet, and her greatest am bition Is to play In "Romeo and Ju liet." Despite her happy smiles, she dislikes comedy, and wants to play in the photoplays of the feature type. Hazel Simpson Naylor, writing in the "Motion Picture Magazine;" says Mary Miles Minter has no false vani ty ; neither: is she the' type of girl who goes around with a powder puff In her her hand; for she is too vivid, too colorful, and too full of life to be restristad In'any way.'
LAST SATURDAY'S PROGRAMME. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 13 May 1921
LAST SATURDAY'S PRO -'.or GRAMME. .. . There was anoiither good'programme presented last Satuiday, night. Mar gqerita Fislier's comedy in 'Charge it;: t" MeI " was delightful, but the story; of'eoohrs;e was quite impoosible. The stbry of the Solitn Seas, as de: picted in "The Idol Dancer, ". was really great, the story being realistio in its setting, and woven into some very- picturesque scenes of 'the sun=n kist isles. As the beachcomber whose liking. for gin was notorious, Riohard Barthelmass gave some fine character interpretations, whilst Clarine Sey more proved a very beautiful Eve of the islands. Creighton Hale was alse good, but he snuffed it just when I was beginning to like him.
Cr Wells Gives Explanation To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 13 May 1921
Cr Wells Gives Explanation To the-Editor. Sir, - I notice in your last issue whet're Crs Oates and Wells (the latter being 'inyself) werea.riticised by the Soldier?i' Leagoe' for alleged lctk of sympathy with returned soldiers at a council meeting. May Ihave space to makie the matter clear I Firstly, the President (MrVicars) stated that Cr Wells moved that the Honor Avenue be left in charge of the Caretakernof Parks and Gardens, which was not correct. I suggested that the Honor Avenue be placed in charge of the Caretaker of Parks and Gardens at a salary of £5 or £6 per annum. My reason was the disgraceful state of the qvenue. I had already spoken about it. four different oc-aslons in a little over 12 months, but little or nothing had been done to improve things.. After suggesting the best tnethod and the cheapest I could think of to keep this neglected plicde in order, Cr Oatke said tome "Put it in Harry's charge" meaning the foreman, who is the fa ther of a deceased soldier and a r...

Soldiers' League Active Some Replies to Statements and Charges Made Rev. McFarlane Replies To the Editor. Sir,-I very much dislike controv ersy in the Press. But, I feel that I ought to reply," if you will allow me space in your columns, to statements concerning mys-lf, made by the Sol diers' League, and reported in your last iseue. The first statement is that I received an 'nvitation from the Frankston Branch of the Returned Soldiers' League to take part in their United Service on Anzao Day in Frankston this year and that I did not reply to it. I did NOT'receive such an invitation and therefore, of course, could not reply to it. In case I might be accused of quibbliig, I may state that I received an invita tion to attend a meeting on April 18 "in connection with Anzac Day ser vices." I promised to be present, but I was unable to attend. The cause of my absence was explained to the mee ting by a gentleman who was present. I have not seen the apology for my absence mentioned in "The ...
