NOTELETS. To-day Footscray play Hawthorn, at Hawthorn, and on the small ground of that club will be advised to make every post a winning post. It is nice to be considerate to a new team, but apart from the risk of surprise it has to be remembered that in the event of teams being level for first or fourth places at the conclusion of the first round, averages count. .. " Supporters who intend to follow the team to Hawthorn to-day should book to Glen ferric.3,Thc ground is immediately outside the Glcunferric station.

To the Editor of "THE ADVERTISER." [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 May 1914
To the I'ditor of " Ti; Auvilltrin?Ra. " Sir, The di.'iscustiion ont the above subject has been interesting so far n? it has gone but where does it all tend. It is generally admitted that Footscray is sadly lacking ini enterprise, or of enter prising leaders but I cannot believe that we are so far behind other suburbs in that respect as appearances would appear to indicate. What is really needed is something to draw them out. 'Therefore the proposal to form a Pro gress Association or a Citizens' League, is a good one, always provided that its constitution provides that it shall be non-Iarty and non-political. The ;apathy at present so apparent is largely due to the fact that in recent years residents have been divided by pairty adlvocates instead of being brought together to work unitedly for the common-weal. I write, therefore, in the holpe that miy humble contrilnbution will encourage someone to take the initial step toward forming a body as suggested. I feel Sconfidant that much ...
The Diver and His Physical Drawbacks. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 May 1914
The Diver and His Physlaal .Draw baoks. At first though,, it may not seem so dtificult a thitg to go down un ider water and breathe air sent in fron, a pumtlp by a; tube. But thc.1physical drawbacks to the work, to take no ac count of the mental ones, are enorm ous. For every ten feet a diver de sccllends, he su;talins an added pressure of -I poutlids over every square inch of his body. What this means may be better understood when considering the greatest depth ever imade by a di ver---2t0-1 feet.

A PLEA FOR ENTER PRISTE. ~.- -~---- To the Editor of the "Advertiser Sir -Referring to " Adviince Foots cray's" article on the necessity for more enterprise, I heard a suggestion made during the week that if adopted by our councillors would show that they, at any rate, were progressive. It was that the sum of £5000 be horrowed to transform the present unsightly F'ootscray Park into a hbauty spot worthy of the dis trict.. If this were done a lovely park could be made at once for the present generation to enjoy. A sum of £500 per annum would pay interest and wipe out prigcipal in about 20 years, whereas if £500) per annum were spent on it, it would be nearly 20 years, when many oft us will have passed away, before the place is anything to look at.
