TYABB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 23 September 1911

TYABB. The Progressive Euchre party held at the IH.UC. la-t ~aautday week was a success and well patronised. Some months ago the committee decided to run the'se gamc.s under coniitiona dif fcrent from the general u 'e, by letting players f o..ch sex have their own sets of t'b'els and to pliy two-handed games, and so put a atop to the oft repeated cry thld "If I'td had a differ entt partu.er at, s ht and such a table, I'd have w n." Also, if the ladies were insullicient in nutmbers," gents p'ay d as ladies, a thing which gave them an undue advantage, as they always had other gents for partners, and had a very big chance of winning the gent's prize. On the last occa vion, thirty e, tables were occupied hjb gents, and five by ladies. After over an hour's play, the winners turned up in Mrs G. Slocombe, with eight wins iin ten gamnes, and Mr H. Unthank ithl eleven wins in twelve games. There was a good muster of visitors, and the usual dance was indulged in . with much merriment.

LANGWARRIN PROGRESS. ASSOCIATION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-In your issue of the 16th inst, under the heading of Langwnrrin, ap. pearnis some comments on the.Progress and Mutual Improvement Associations. The Progress is stated to be in a bad way altogether. If this is so, would it not be more charitable to encouraee ibtinto asetter condition, rather.than try to deal it a knock out blos;. 'No considering the gre?t .benefits it has conferred on the district for many .years past, I did not think your cor respondent's remarks came with good grace, and were not to the interests of any one here, except it.was himself. However, as some of--his statements are entirely contradictory, whit re liance can be placed on them as a whole; as, for instance, he says-the Progress is in a sound 'financial con ditton, and yet is in a bad way al together; such statements as these can not be reconciled. Perhaps the author can explain his meaning more clearly. In respect.to having-lost five members during the te...
