(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 21 July 1939
(TS the Editor.) Sir,-It would indeed be a pity if this self-appointed Solomon of Son ville, .ho seems utterly incapabli inditing'.- a letter, without violeth every canon of decency, to be die pointed in his anticipation, to usel own aesthletic jargon, "a tirade' abuse." So let us quote him a particubl appropriate excerpt from a iblo speech made years ago, by a yuE mem'ber of the British House ofl mons; who on being twitted about youth by an elderly member, repie in the following terms: "The wxrd who, after having seen the cot! quences of a thousand errors, cr tines still to blunder is surely theol ject either of abhorrence or of 0: tempt." In any. case, as it is an unproiht! venture to "cast your pearls beta swine," whyt worry. Finally, as I am not paving mys to that lofty Dinnacle of public st vice, the local municipal countl still Ipersist in signing myself SMODIERN ECONOMIST. Frankston.
Let's Write a Letter TO EVERY AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 21 July 1939
Let's Write a Letter oO0 TO EVERY AUSTRALIAN. Dear. Fellow-Aussies,-We have been thinking lately that we don't blow enough about our own great country. We are a little modest as to our achievements. In fact, we donrt blow our own bugle enougih, even in our 'own company. What is wrong with us? Have we any thing to be ashamed of? Have we an inferiority complex? Or is it that we do not get a lead, and as a result are content'to labor on in our furrow. A spot of flag-waving and drum.beating on behalf of Australia wouldi do us quite an amount of good, if Indulged in once per annum. Run through ourlist of public holidays in-Victoria. ,Christmas and Easter holidays-really instituted to cormmemorate memorable happen ings in our Christian history, but now with a' large section' of the people . just holidays. Anzac Day-in commemoration of those fine young fel lows who went away in 1914-18 and whose dead bodies now lie in foreign lands, but whose memories live with us. Eight Hours Day-to com m...
Local Trade [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 21 July 1939
Local Trade This week's .pat on the back goes to the shopkeepers of the City of Chelsea. In fact, we think their action .sufficiently important to broadcast the news through our chain of eleven papers. For ever so long we have advocated closer co-operation between the business people of the different municipalities. Certainly Elst'ernwick tradrs have a live organisation; Sandringham and Frankston also have associations, as has Bentleigh. But Chelsea, much smaller in size compared to the other muni cipalities whioh come tiider our banner, but certainly not smaller in heart, has set a lead to those districts, and really puts to shame others which have no local shopkeepers' league at all. The City of Chelsea has a good shopping centre; in fact, many motorists from other districts make it their business to do their shop ping there 'each week-end. But Chelsea was not satisfied. The people there felt that they were not doing enough to boost their city, that traders were not being brought ...

Felix Holt Says [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 21 July 1939
Felix Holt Says THAT ratepayers take more interest in municipal affairs? this month of the year tlhan 'they do for the other eleven months put together. That a sustained interest for twelve months instead, of one month would be, all to the good. . Councillors are often criticised in these columns-as public men they must expect criticism-but no one is more alive to the work and value to the services of the district given by municipal councillorsi in an honorary capacity than this ,paper is. It is rather a thankless; job, carried out as a general rule without even an audience-or at best a meagre one-to help them on. The worst:critics of councillors appear to be those who have never entered the gallery of the council cham ber. If they were in the habit of doing' so they' would either feel less inclined to criticise, or it still critical their, information would be first hand instead of being gathered fourth.Tfifth' or fiftieth hand. ,,There are t many actions-~of uncilslýo=Which tlils'...
