CRITIC ANSWERS CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 April 1914
CRITIC ANSWERS CRITICISM. "ROVER" IN REPLY.' Sir,-I am quite sure that neither your contributor, "Bowler," or the secretary of the Prahran Club, wishes me, for obvious reasons, to reply In full to the remarks of tho former, in your last issue, so I will content my self by just skimming over the fringe of it. If either desire more, and you have a few columns of space to spare (nothing less would suffice), I will ac commodate them, and give most un doubted proof of what I have written, and that from personal knowledge and observation, unalloyed by the in spiration of others. I again re-assert and emphasise my previous state ments. Now, and for very many years past, I have had a very keen insight and personal knowledge of the internal and external workings of the Prahran Club, and at no stage of its existence has the management been so inem cient and incompetent. Mr. Dunning is all that your critic says, but he is far from being either happy or con tent in his position as president, an...

Dangerous Swings for Children. A Matter for Attention. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 April 1914
Dangerous Swings for Children. A Matter for Attention. To the Editor. Dear Sir,--The Prahran Council re cently erected swings for children off Fairbairn-road. Tie result to date is too appalling for words. 1 have a list of six serious accidents to children, which have been the result of the use of these swings. The worst case is that of a boy whose thigh was broken, and another where the arm was broken, and four or five minor acci dents. I have actually the names of five; but 1 am informed there are sl:::dry others whose names are not ,vailable to add to the list. Apparently the swings are too high for the purpose they were designed, and, as they are very heavy, a blow from a swinging seat would be suffi cient to. ensure disablement. In Geelong, I understand, the swings are so constructed as to give a very short sweep, and are not considered dan gerous.-Yours faithfully, PARENT.
