FAIRFIELD SENIORS V. GREENSBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 6 June 1914
FAIRFIELD SENIORS V. GREENS BOROUGH. ,Delays seem to be the vogue at our foot ball matches of late, the above match being no exception to the rule. It is not a good rule, by the way, as it is generally dark before the final quarter is ended. Fair field won the toss from Greensborough's skippor. The match, which was played at Grecnsborough, was commenced by Fair field pressing forward and forcing the game. Chanter cleverly captured the ball from a scrimmage and sent it to the cen tres. It was not long before a free kick was awarded to Greensborough: Riddell placed the ball, anid scored a goal. Greens borough then gave a fine sample of passing, and it seemed as if they fairly baffled their opponents. Fairfield had a good stronghold in.l~sthl;'pla?ers as Bennie, Clarke,- and ~Md~l~`n 6dy-r=Sh ,- .:of Grdensbbkhiisgh, passed.~ ?Bhbill :to Foster, and the latter held.lit; too long. The game all through gave gd~neral satisfaction, and the onldokers were given a good match. When the game w...

IVA?IHOE'METHODIST MUTUA? i IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY. A debate took place between teams representing the Moreland Methodist Young Men's Club and the above Society in the Methodist hall on Wednesday, May 27th. The local team undertook to prove "That local option is preferable to the Licensing Reduction Board." Mr P. Jenkins, in opening the debate, re ferred to the provisions of the Licensing Bill as they affected local option in 1917, and went on to show that though the board had closed a number of hotels in carrying out the work for which it was appointed, a 14 per cent. increase in the annual consumption of liquor took place. Mr Sisson, the first speaker for the visitors, took exception to the bitter ness caused by the local option polls, and compared the work done by the board as regards the cost to the com munity. In 6½ years 710 hotels had been closed by the board as against only 217 by local option during a muchlonger period. Mr W. Ball dealt in his speeeh withthe democratic side of...

FOOTBALL. IVANHOE V. FAIRFIELD JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 6 June 1914
FOOTBALL. IVANHOE V. FAIRFIELD JUNIORS. But for the state of the ground, which was rather heavy, Ivanhoo and Fairfield juniors had very good condi tions in which to play their game. The rain which threatened in the early part of the afternoon, was blown away, and the air was bracing. It was noticed that after a while, the ball was made weighty by its contact with the damp ground-, and during the se cond part of the match, it was decid edly heavy, and influenced tle kicking to a great extent. Two goals towards the end were missed by Ivanhoe, through shortness in kicking, and the reason is traced to the weighty con dition of the leather. At the game, which took place on the Ivanhoo ground,- there was a large array of spectators, and' several young ladies, supporters df the Fairfield junior team, were made conspicuous by the zeal which they showed for their side's welfare. Fairfield juniors led the game, and held the reins throughout.; they had some points to their credit at the close ...

IMPROVEMENTS TO SHIRE HALL [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 6 June 1914
I&IPROVEMENTS TO SHIRE HALL The additions to the shire hall, which have been in progress for some timre past, are now assuming considerable proportions. Owing to the remarkable increase in the population of the shire, the building erected four years ago, which was then considered to be sufficient for many years to come, has proved altogether inadequate.
