Last Sunday afternoon, July 2,' we were invited to attend a public meet ing ostensibly to take part in confer ence to decide upon a ppolicy to assist in the best means of carrying out the air raid' precaution scheme.

Moreover, we found tha...

NO INSIDE INFORMATION. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 July 1939
NO INSIDE INFORMATION. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I shall be glad if you will again give me space to reply to Mr R. C. Wells' letter which appeared in iast week's issue. This letter again shos a that Mr Wells has a unique facility for arriving at erroneous con clusions. Instead of his "passing shot" scoring, a "bull's eye," as he fondly imagines, he has only revealed the fact that his general knowleddge of municipal affairs-even vwhe?i pub lished in the press-is apparently very slight. The question relating to street gar dens was discussed ny the shire coun cil a few months ago, and an account of this discussion was published in the Standard. My allusion to 'street gardens was based solely on this re ported discussion, and Mr Wells' ab surd suggestion that I was in receipt of inside information, not available to thie general ,public, is without foun dation.-Yours etc., BUNKER.
DROMANA ECLIPSE BAXTER [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 July 1939
DROMANA ECLIPSE- BAXTER .(By Griff) The match between Dromana and. Baxter at Dromana da Saturday last was practically a farce as far as foot ball goes as Baxter fielded only 15 men and after half-time many men from both. 'ides left the ground.

The day was bitterly cold, with oc casional heavy .showers.. There were very few spectators. .The .wind also caused many kicks to go astray, and the game was not-as fast as on pre vious occasions. Scores: Dromana, 20.18; Baxter, 3.10. Best players.-Dromana: V. Hum phreys, V., McLaren, B. Aust, W. Guy, G. McLear and A. Hosking. Baxter: Patherton, Thornell, Wotherspoon, Hicks and Heywood.

Head correspondence. "Safety Valve.") r CHURCH AND UNEMPLOYMENT. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Since writing my letter on up employment I have seen ini a section of the metropolitan -press the news, exploited in large letters, that 100,000 tons of butter had been exported this season. Is that something really to boast about when we learn at the same time that S.7 per cent. of the population, roughly 600,000, are out of enmployment. and living practically in semi-starvation. What has the church got to say about this-the Christian Church, of course, I inean? --Yours etc., A MODERN ECONOMIST. Franklston.
Sporting Highlight HOW MUCH LONGER [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 July 1939
SportIng . Highlight oo HOW MUCH LONGER Is the public:of Maelbourne going to take to wake up to this :Satur day night farce which masquerades under the title' of, wrestlinig Our .knowledge of wrestling holds is only elementary, we admit, but we a;t ays imagined that a solid (or even a weak) kick in the groin would earn a long term of disqualification; that to hit an opponent with a piece of timber would pro'bably see the aggressor in the dock on the Monday; that kicking in the spine was not sport; that gouging the opponent's eyes was low-down' and dirty; that kneeing an opponent in the stomach would earn quick disqualification; that striking the referee would earn disqualification for life; but apparently we have got the whole thing wrong. Saturday after Saturday this type of sport is permitted in Mel bourne, and to make doubly sure that everyone has the opportunity of hearing these modern ideas. of sport, the radio is brought intd play and the announcer does full justice to the mis...
