A Reply to Mr Unthank Municipal Matters Discussed by Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 June 1921
A Reply to Mr.Unthank Municipal Matters Discussed by Correspondent f~~---===~"--:'='~"IU"" To the Editor. Sir,-In your issue of 3rd June, Mr Joseph Unthank walls like a Jeremiah over the future of the East and Central Ridings of the Shire of Frankston. Things are all wrong now that the other fellows are no longer in a sure minority, but things were splendid when Joseph's Six Brethren had the three North Riding members down- a hole, and made them pay up, willy nilly, to build the Shire Hall, In order to make Somerville into a Bush Capital. Mr Joseph Unthank says that as the East and Centre Ridings have, lost their overwhelming majority "the position of their representatives will now be a farce." He fails to see that the Six Brethren made the position of the other ridings a farce, or rather a tragedy. However, if the position of the East and Centre Riding rep resentatives is to be a farce, it will at any rate be a consistent continua tion of their previous faroial pro ceedings. Even w...

General Notes [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 June 1921
General Notes Have you seen our great Football Competition on page one ? Use the coupon every week, and help to win gold medals for your favorites. My very modest efforts to give you a chatty and faithful chronicle of events in this sphere of athletic activitics has seemingly achieved Its objective in being in'eretling and not without its value to the game. The-pleasure has been mine. It is not out of place, however, to state that the " Standard " devotes more of its apace to the game than any other country newspaper in Victoria. A correspondent very much dislikes my football notes and urges the Edi tor to bend my whistle. It can't be done, brother, for the fact is that 95 per cent of the people demand it. Had not Australia's sons developed their manhood on the football, tennis and cricket field, the glory of the An zac would not have shone as bright in history as it has done. Mrs Dalman was Frankston's sole lady supporter at Dromana. The other regular lady barrackers missed the bus...
