ANDREW HUGHES FOR FLINDERS [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 22 September 1949
ANDREW HUGHES &nbsp; FOR FLINDERS Mr. Andrew Hughes won the Labor pre-selection ballot held in Flinders by an overwhelming majority. Mr. Hughes is the can- didate selected by the rank and file, and they have refused to ac- cept Mr. R.. E.

As a result, leading Labor &nbsp; Party branches throughout the electorate have resigned — not to fight Chifley — but to defend &nbsp; the principles of Labor which are being engulfed by the reac- &nbsp; tionary and tyrannical control of a small section in Victoria. Complaint Dismissed. During the long delay in the endorsement the only complaint brought against Mr. Hughes was one laid by a member of the Chelsea branch describing him self as a friend of Mr. Wilson's.

CHURCH NEWS CHURCHES OF CHRIST [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 22 September 1949
CHURCH NEWS CHURCHES OF CHRIST. Many people from Britain are finding new homes in this land. In the past few weeks two mar-ried couples recently arrived from England, have been wel-comed as members of the Frank- ston Church of Christ. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The sermon on Sunday morn- ing was the second of a series setting forth some basic ideas &nbsp; that Churches of Christ have al- ways held. Churches of Christ came into being because some men were seized with the necessity of uniting the Christian Churches. The basis on which they proposed that Christian unity should some &nbsp; day be achieved, was a re-discov- ery and restoration of the essen- tial life of the Church found in the New Testament. That church was a working unity and the es- sentials of its life were divinely prescribed. Disunity has come &nbsp; through history, because men have introduced other require- ments than those found in the &nbsp; scriptures. To restor...
