DROMANA v. FRANKSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 June 1921
DROMANA v." FRANKSTON. Last Saturday, strictly. speaking, was not exactly,. a day. one would eelect for a day's outing in the country, but the annual pilgrimage to Droraiana usually strikes suob days, and, therefore those.who went to Dromana on Saturday last were unmindful of the icy - breezes that were wafted in from Port Philip Bay, and bit one's nose as does frost the uacculent cabbage. All they cared about was the result of the game. The patty engaged Cr. H. Z. Untbank'" International mptor van for the outing, and the lads were packed into it like sardines. But, still, they enjoyed it. A late start was maule, but .Mr Unthank kept the pace, and the long trip was made In good time. And say what you like about the Point Nepean Road tI'is a difficult thoroughfare to negotiate; up hill, down dale, up more hills, and steep and 'nasty inclines,' which have caused many a semi-religious to indulge" in blasphemies before to-day-.

THE SCOTCH CONCERT Dr. Mackeddie Explains Aims The first monthly o,ncert of the Frankaton Caledonian Society was a triumphant suocess. The audience was good, the performance was better, the enthusiasm best of all. The wind was 'cold, for many of those inter esated the way was long, but in spite of that the enlarge- hall was full, and the success achieved at the ini tial concert on Easter Monday was equalled if not surpassed, Before the performance began the audience was charmed by the appear ance of the stage, which Mrs James, assisted by a bevy of girls, had deco rated very tastefully and very effec tively with heath and ferns, grouped beneath the Union Jack and the Scotch flag.

Langwarrin [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 June 1921
LarngwRarrin The proposal to sever a portion of the district and annex it to Franks ton and Hastings Shire has not been sanctioned by the Minister for Pnblie Works, although a majority of rate payers on the roll voted in favor. The separation movement, was started by the Progress Association, and Mr P. J. Murray was appointed te take the soverance petition around for signatures. and no reflecton could be cast on him by those in.opposition because he did so. . However,. any insisuatious against him will not be believed by' the pubnlic, as he is too well known for his-honest and upright character. What is likelyto retard the separation movement .is the dis cord amongst the counoillors of.. the l!: t...tou and Hastings Shire and the flnancial-drift they seem to have got into.'Iin this separation move ment much can be.said on both sieldes, and some glaring casesorf inconsis-, teucy in taking sides on the question are apparent te anyone.
Balnarring [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 June 1921
Ealniaxira g The fruit carting has just about come to an end, and as the roals are being cut up a good deal by th e heavy traffic the carters are not sorry that they have finished for the aeason. The Red Hill Cool Store was opened during last month, and this relieved the situation to a great extent, as some thousand cases were pot into store thare, thus saving the trouble of carting same to Bittern, .a distance of ten miles and even more to many. On Saturday,last a horse which had got away from Mr C. Proesser, of Red Hi.1, came bolting past the Six Ways Store with all its harness on, and seemed to be in a bad state of panic. Five residents, who happened to see it coming, endeavored to stop its mad career, but it was too wild to get within coo-ee of it. It bounded up the Beach Road, jumped down the railway tutting, up the other side, and was last seen going at a high speed towards the beach. Up to a late hour on Sunday no tid ings had besh heard of it, but later it was heard that the...
SOMERVILLE v NAVAL DEPOT [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 June 1921
SOMERVILLE ? NAVAL DEPOT A great game It was foottall and the besat of the season. The match was played at Somerville, and there was a large attendance. The game started with a strong wind blow ing straight through the southern goal, and the naval lads bad the first aivantage of it. On the bounce. So merville worked the ball down against the strong breeze, but Davoren's de fenders transferred the play, when some exciting struggles for supremacy took place. The visitors scored 2.3 to nil by real good general play and quick and effective hand passing. The goals were scored by Thompson. On changing ends, Hutchinson pulled his lads together, and thanks to the efforts of Delaney, Guest, Mentiplay, and McConville, Somerville scored 2.5 to 2 points. The naval lads were fast and clever in -the next quarter, bowling along like racehorses, and scored three goals to nil. With a 21 points deficiency to make up, Somer ville set out determined to make up the leeway. And what a wonderful last quar...

LANGWARRIN v. SOMERVILLE II [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 June 1921
L.ANGWARRIN v. SOMERVILLE 11 (By "Spectator") This match wae played at Langwar rin last Saturday before a good atten dance. The game, to a great extent, was spoilt by the high wind that was blowing across the ground, and at times play became rather congested, yet some good football was witnessed.. After a hard tussle, victory zested with Langwarcin by 4.6 to 2.7. The winners were a fairly even lot, but a pleasing feature was the improrpd form shown by the younger players. I desire specially to discuss.the mer it, of the local lads. C. Males again gave a glimpse of the fine form hae di splayed in the opening game ;. when at his best, he is hard to beat in the centre. S. Adderley seems to have found his proper place up forward, for he cruised around like Merrick, and got a couple of clever goals. J. Cipperton did well back and showed plenty of promise, whilst G. Whit tingham.improves with every game. Amongst the mor- experienced men, those consiltent players, C. and H. Bond and the gr...
YES OR NO! [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 June 1921
YES OR NO ! Supported by Edward S. Brophy and her sister Natalie,. Norma Tal. madge plays a dual role in the above picture. As Margaret Vane. she is a petted and pampered wife, who mis takes her husband's devotion to busi nesw for indifference to her. Surroun ded by luxury, whose every whim was satisfied, she succumbed to the flat tery of a social parasite. But, as Minnie Berry, burdened with poverty she fought with all her strength to keep intact her sacred altar pledge to honor. The powerful cl'max to this photoplay embodies a twist in the machinations of Fate that will thrill you with its realism A question as old as humanity has been answered in this dramatic treat.

HASTINGS v MORNINGTON [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 June 1921
HASTINGS v MORNINGTON But for the fact that Harry Golds was out, Mor?ington placed their best team in the feld.at Hastings last Sa turday, whilst'Hastings had dimfculty in mustering' a team. The ground was very heavy, but this suited. Hast ings admirably. The assoe was never in doubt, and Hastings led throug h ont, thoroughly deserving their win. Dainty umpired well, but he was tem porarily laid out, through getting kicked in the face with the leather. The final scores were-Hastings 4.11, Mornington 4.7.. The best man on the ground was Floyd, who was re sponsible mainly for Hastings' win. Knox played up to his usual form, and Marabella was a busy'man on the defenoe. fector Jask, Garth, Hughie Carmichael, Will Allen, Goodwin, Peddle, Woolley, and the Tipplnga were prominent. Campbell (2), Car michael, and Garth got the goals. On the losing side. none were better than Harrison. Son Wilson and Pitchford. though Birth, the Pattersons Olsen, Reid and Bidgood did wpel.

THE SAWDUST DOLL The charming little juvenile, Mar.. le Osborne, played the leading:role in this picture. There was muchin the story that touched the well springs of sympathy in one's heart. The story ran happily along, with smiles and laughter, and amusing childish play, with occasional flashes of pathos, until at its close, when it swung into swift and mature action, with a gripping climax, dominated by a heroic sacrifice'
