Kangaroo Cround Sports. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 January 1923
Kangaroo Ground Sports. The annual sports meeting was held on New Year's Day. The proceeds this year being in aid of the Shire Memorial Park, situate on the summit of Garden Hill, Kan garoo Ground, Messrs. Mess Bros. kindly granted the use of a field, which was favor. ably commented on for its suitability as a recreation ground. Many local residents expressed the opinion that the paddock in question should have been acquired for the Memorial Park-Lacking the commanding position of Garden Hill. Yet its usefulness as a recreation ground would compare very fayorably with the position, grand though it may be, with its- magnificent panoramic views forever admired by the tourist, though not the boon to" the district resi dents as is a first-class recreation ground.

Cr Murphy advocated going on with the proposal to spend £300 on Eden Park and £300 on-Brennan's Hill. _ Cr Clarke favored Kinglake or Thomastown Settlement. Cr Thomas pointed, out that the en gineer said Kinglake road came. under the developmental scheme. The quick er the money was taken, the better. OCr Mitchell said the money was most needed at Kinglake. Or Downie said that amount would be no use there. Cr Butler explained that the King lake people suggested spending the money where it would be most useful. The President said Mr Everard, M.L.A, had suggested to him to send in a" list of the amounts and where ,they were to be spent, and he felt sure the Minister would approve of them. . Cr Hurrey suggested spending the money elsewhere than Yan Yean. They had enough for Brennan's I lill, Cr Clarke moved that £200 be for Thomastown.-Cr Thomas s...
NOCTURNAL RAIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 12 January 1923
NOCTURNAL RAIDS. Stray cows at Elthano are causing many people much trouble. Most good-maunnered cows-stop at home, but apparently some of these quadrupeds are not content with .merely roaming the streets, but break into paddocks and orchards. One person bad the tops consumed of his fruit, which were showing great promise. 'The pity of it is that most of these beasts make nocturnal raids, and therefore the c.,ances of detection are small. It is hoped that the council offi cer. will see fit to take action in connection with there four-legged offenders.

Eltham. THE SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 12 January 1923
Eltham. T'HE SFORTS. (FROM OURI CORRESPONDENT.). .The entries for the sports. meetingito-be? held- to.mdrrow, are very large,--and the;I quality right. The park has become av?er itable home of -'the knights of.the.spikell' shoe" and "prads" of. every 'description. One horse had the misfortune to collide with a tree the .other evening, but fortu nately no damage was done--except to the . tree. Many trotters train in the twvilight, and it is a"rmatter of cougratulationnto. the riders that more similar accidents have npt: occurred. Mr Birchall, the energetic secre-? tary, has had rather a stienuous timne, and' he will be perhaps the gladdest man whei' the thing is over.- Given an'ideal day, the meeting will eclipse all records, and in any, case it will be well worth a visit.

Ex-Cr. Price occupied the chair. . Mr Parcell is one of the principal. supporters of a vidowed mother who lost a sonin the great war, and it was felt. in that case it was particularly hard the dismissal notice should have been issued on Christmas Eve. The councillors for the riding had 1 been invited to attend, but Cr Leach was delayed in the city, preventing his appearance, whilst Cr Santon, who attended, apologised for Cr White, as he had only received notice of the meeting that afternoon. It was significant that .the notice convening the indignation meeting was posted up on.Friday evening and Purrell re started work before 8 o'clock on Saturday morning-,truly a won derful piece of smartness for ...
