MORNINGTON DOWN TO SOMERVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 July 1939
MORNINGTON. DOWN TO SOMERVILLE. Wet and cold conditions were against good football at Mornington on Saturday, and only a small attend ance witnessed the match. . Mornington had a much weakened team, the influenza epidemic keeping se'veral players out of the game. A hard, slogging game was wit nessed, and players had a hard time with -the wet state of the ground to contend against. It was a low scoring game, and on the day honors were in favor of Somerville, who did not seemn to mind the heavy going. They deserved their victory, and if they could reach" the four they would take a power 'of beating. They have been an unlucky team, and 'earlier in the season pressed Frankston' closely. The win against Mornington has put renewed vigor into them; and they confidently excpect 'to defeat Hastings Tyabb tomorrow. When Somerville scored a good lead 'in the second quarter they ap peared likely to win. 'Goals were hard' to get. Somerville had the better of things in the last quarter and ran ou...
Felix Holt Says [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 July 1939
Felix Holt Says oOo THAT reclining in a luxurious lounge chair at a local picture -theatre recently his mind drifted.back to the days, thirty years ago, when flickering pictures of cowboys and. Indians held him enthralled. It was a toss-up as to whether the picture 'would reach a conclusion as breakdowns in-the bio. box were a nightly occurrence., These shows were held in the open-air at a Victorian provincial town. :Color was"..,r lent to the programmes by a good ballad singer-now a successful down-the-line trainer. Pictures then gravitated to an enclosed build ing,- and finally, about 1912; to a theatre built for the purpose. On this screen the European production of Quo Vadis will always remain a vivid memory in- spite of Bing Crosby and George Formby. :Then there was. a serial, The Clutching Hand, featuring Pearl White, Crichton -Hale and - another. It ran for months, and held audiences spellbound . -Then came Chaplin in The Property Man, one of the best comedies ever ifilmed-go...

Let's Write a Letter TO THE COUNCILLORS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 7 July 1939
Let's Write a Letter oOo TO THE COUNCILLORS. Respected Sirs,-The Federal Government seems to have gone to sleep on the matter of a national fitness campaign, and we express the opinion of many when we say that it is a matter you could take up, without -cost to your council, with great credit to yourselves, and to the general benefit of local people. Your duties are now multitudinous, but if you have the time to devote, to: organising decontamination squads and evacuation corps, which are not likely to be called upon until the members have dreop ing beards-if even then-we think you can. well devote a little of your municipal machinery: to doing something for the present genera tion. If you arranged for the services of an Instructor, and placed a hall at the disposal of those men and women who have sufficient pride to make them anxious to improve their physical :standard-as people of some European nations are doing-the small weekly contribution ,which trainees could pay would easily m...
