CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 11 April 1914
CHILDREN'S. PLAYGROUNDS. Something in the nature of reflec tion was unintentionally cast upoh the Port Melbourne Council by :a recent deputation when the organi satjon known as the .Guild of Play -imputed negligence of a palpable duty as regards the provision of chlildren'ls playgrounds. As a mat ter of fact, as one of-the councillors was careful to point out, the coun eil essayed something inl this direc tion a. fewv years ago, but evidently failedi in its mission, because a nuum ber of ratepayers formulated a re quest for its discontinuance. But that, or course, did niot stultify the idea; it was merely an indication of the Council's lack of experience in. the way of effeetnation. A similar project was launchelcd in Richmond several yexlrs iago, but children of a larger growth-blossoming hoodlums and the likie--madle themselves so ob jectioiinable in one -way and aniiother that anxious parents wvithd!:ew their childiren firom the scenlle-auld audi tioi of tite laniguage-and the ou...

WESLEY CAMPEPS. Trip to Wildwood. A party of eleven of the Wesley Campers took advantage of the Easter vacation,- and spent a good time at Wildwood. A start was made at 5.40 a.m. on Good Friday, and a cool ride, and an occasional ditty by -the come dian "Lauder" passed away the jour ney pleasantly enough. Arrived at the camping ground, they were soon busy with the tent, etc.; and were settled down to dinner (which was done ample justice to), in a very short time. The camp fire was well surrounded in the evening, and ''Lauder,''' ''Father Jimn," and the "'Man WVith the Red Kerchief" were in fine form. On Sat urday after breakfast shooting, ferret ing, and another attempt by some to snatch a snooze, passed away the mnorn ing. Dinner was the next item, and the ''French Chef" was again in great form. It is whispered that one, "Bags," had to be carried away on "'Lofty's"' stretcher, being too full for words. The afternoon was spent in rabbiting and bird-catching. After tea the boys agait...

Murphy is 33 years of age, and his shipmates on the "MIedic" gave him an excellent character when not "in drinik." IHe seems td have been an excellent, self-sacrificing sort of husband, for it was shown that hie only allowed himself 10/ or 15/ of his earnings whenever tihe vessel put into port. There is little doubt, however, that the wound he inflicted upon a coal trimmer on the "Mledic," named Thomas McKernan, was somewhat more serious than either the recipient or some other witnesses were inclined to concede. McKernan, for instance, referred to it as a "scratch," and the ship's medical officer said it was "not seri ous." Yet the bench had to face the fact that a lknife had been used, that a couple of stitches had been inserted in treating it, and that nac cording to Dr. Luggan himself the weapon had struck a rib, anid t...
