OCEAN-GOING SUBMARINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 12 February 1914
OCEAN-OOLNG SUB~IABINES. If the development of the nsubmarine in the early yealrs of its existence seemed to be rather slow, no such charge can be made against this interesting craft at the present time. 1 ithin a. single decade it has developed, from an ingenious curio sity into a potent engine of war, the limit to whose future development no. intelli gent student of naval affairs would care, Just now. definitely to determine. De rided and belittled in the early days of .tle struggle for recognition, the submar inl at last hias come into its own; The princilpal objections against this type dur ing the early years.of experimental work were its lack of speed. its. limited steam ing power, and its restricted radius of ac tinn. So great were thlese limitationsthat it was considered to be useful merely as an adjulnct to the more formidable blar hour defences in the way of long range euno; mortars, and submarine mines. That the charge was well founded is prov ed if we call to mind thieli...

Registration for Military Training. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 12 February 1914
' 'Regiatration for Militavy Training. The.attentioin of parents who have buys lia'tbl' for military training is rawn .to .the advertisement appearing an page 3 of this issue. In spito of the fact that. the notice published, quoting the seetbit'of the Defence Act clearly states tli correct time for a boy to be registered for training, there are many parents who are under the impression that a boy is not required to be regis tered until he actuall reaches'his four teenth birthday.

Essendon's New Town Hall. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 12 February 1914
Essendon's New Town Hail. Co(miplaint has been made as to. the fact that the new town.lhall is to be roofed with iron, and that this will not match the slated roof of the old town hall. This was referred to at the meet ing of the council's committee on Mion day" evreting. The surveyor sulbtnitted a detailed statement, slhowing thlle dif ference inl cost, as between ian irol andll a slate roof. This showed that had lJate been lchsen, the cost would have involved vin extra sum of over £700. Seeing that the plan had to i te, cut 1iown in cost as it is, it is obvious that if £700 extra went un on the roof. there would have been 0700 less to speond inl offices and acconunodation he low. Of course the appearance of slate is better alongside slate. "but, when the Devil drives, etc. The discusnsin on this matter is reported elsewhere. its the council proceedings, where the ex act costage is also given.
