EUROPEAN JOURNEY (BY NINA BICK) (Written Exclusively for Standard Newspapers Pty. Ltd.) T PART II.-DODGING PARIS TAXI CABS It was after 9 a.m. when'the train pulled in to the Gare du Nord station. I took the Metro., or.underground, which links Sall Paris, to Opera Comique. French Metro. carriages have only a dozen seats, each 1S inches wide, running down one side of the compartment. On the windows are pasted notices saying disabled ex-servicemen have first preference for seats, then elderly men and women, and expectant mothers. The Hotel Favert, where I stayed, was in a narrow winding. street off the Rue de Mariveaux, overlooking Opera Comique Square. In the evenings from my bedroom balcony I watched the glamorous Parisien women arriving at the opera, and in the mornings listened to rehearsals.. In the afternoon of that first day in Paris I weunt to the Eiffel Tower-tihe only place Parisiens say the -mericans couldn't souvenir! I passed the Ecole de Militaire, where the. youth on se...

FRANKSTON COURT CASES HEARD ON TUESDAY Drunk In Charge of Car. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 4 August 1949
FRANKSTON COURT &nbsp; &nbsp; CASES HEARD ON TUESDAY Drunk In Charge of Car. Harry John Howes, of Lang- warrin, was fined £3 at Frankston Court on Tuesday, when convict- ed of being drunk in charge of a motor car, off Cranbourne Road, Frankston, on Friday, July 22, at 8.20 p.m. Constable Burns gave evidence of finding defendant sitting in a sedan car that had run off the road on its wrong side. Defend- ant had to be removed from the car. Defendant pleaded not guilty, but both defendant and his wife admitted having had several drinks at two Frankston hotels. Mr. Meehan, S.M., said he was satisfied defendant had had a good deal of liquor that night, and that he was drunk.

RATEPAYER CANDIDATES COUNCIL REPUDIATES MOVE (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 4 August 1949
RATEPAYER CANDIDATES COUNCIL REPUDIATES MOVE (To the Editor) Sir,—At the last meeting of my Council's Committee, mention was made of the article published in the 21st July, 1949 issue of "The Standard," relative to "Ratepay- er Candidates for State Elections." I am instructed by my Council to inform you that it strongly re- pudiates this article, more par- ticularly because it has made a State Government issue out of a general discussion centred mainly around the allocation of petrol tax monies, which is, of course, under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government. — Yours, etc., G. C. PENTLAND. Shire Secretary. &nbsp; &nbsp; (There is a feeling among a number of influential ratepayers that candidates should be spon- sored, free of party ties, at the next State election. "The Stan- dard" article did not in any way infer that the Council was behind this move, and therefore repudia- tion is quite unnecessary. If any group of ratepayers wishes to nominate a candidate, C...

AMAZON BOXER ATTACKS SPECTATOR IN HALL There was a sensation just after the main fight, at Frank- ston Mechanics' Hall, on Friday night, when a young woman in the audience made a sudden and furious attack on a male mem- ber of the audience—a young man. The young woman aimed some &nbsp; solid swings with both hands, while the young man defended &nbsp; himself by falling into a clinch. They struggled between the seats until the woman was re- moved by friends, a few feet away to the foyer, where she struggled violently in a "let-me- at-him" effort to continue the battle. As a result of the incident a section of the crowd jumped into the raised ring to get a better view of the strange and im- promptu bout below. The real show was delayed for about 10 minutes.
