A CORRECTION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 1 October 1919
A CORRECTION. To the Editor. Sir, — Those who read your report, in the ' Herald' of September 27th, of my speech in Synod on ' Wom en's work in the Church must have gasped with astonishment. Will you allow me to make the following cor rections.— I am reported as saying — ? (a) V There were several instances in the Old Testament of women hav ing taken part in the Councils of the Church.' I never mentioned the 6 Id Testament, neither did I say that women had taken part in Church Councils at any. time, I stated that the idea was quite unhistorical. (b) ' It was utterly impossible from the Church's point of view that women should become members of the Church.' Millions of women have been and are members of the Church What I said was that it is impossible to admit .women to the Sacred Minis try of the Church, (c) ' It is poss ible that if women were admitted into Synod they would overrule the men.' I never used the word 'over- rule,' I argued that if it were possible -for women to be ele...
LYRIC THEATRE. To The Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 1 October 1919
LYRIC THEATRE. . To The Editor. Sir— My business brings me into Bunbury at regular intervals, and I spend the evenings at the Lyric Theatre. ' Movies ' is correct in calling it a bare, desolate place, quite out of the running, the seating an abomination. Stephen Street is go ing to be, in the very near future, the street. There is a good thing on for some body who owns a site there. Granolithic floor, smoking allowed and the place would be crowded; — Yours etc., ; 'COMMERCIAL.' Sir — ' Movies ' is quite right. The Lyric Theatre is a draughty, cold looking, cheerless place, nothing attractive except the pictures— aad there is no convenience for mothers with prams. A while ago, I could put my pram in a room, but it has been shut up, the Manager told me it was closed by order of a Trustee, who, seemingly, is not aware that he is making the place uncomfortable fpr everybody'. If a new Theatre is built do not forget a place for the prams. — Yours etc., 'A MOTHER.' „? Bunbury, 29th Septem...
The Musical Carnival. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 1 October 1919
Tha |y§I@il tesM. ? J-s. ? . . Thursday last Baw an almost record house at the Lyric Theatre, when the cirnival arranged by the ' Town Topics '' and Bunbury Dramatic Olub was-staged. A howling half gale did not deter the public from attending, and those who braved the elements were more thin rewarded by the excellence - of the entertainment. Evidently Bunbury has found a horn organiser in the person of Mr&arry Betteridge who set out, from the beginning, to make this effort a success, and his efforts should cheer the hearts of the rowing men, for the proceeds will greatly augment the funds for the purchase of boats. The stage decorations were beautiful and thi9 was mainly due to the floral effects arranged by Mrs Styles and the MisseB Seabrooke and Woodruffe and the lighting arrangements by Dick Anderson and. Don Swanson. Meeara 0. and H. Looke helped great ly by their kindly loan of some most artistio furniture. Before saying nice things of the performance it might be as wel...
BALINGUP ROAD BOARD. To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 1 October 1919
BALINGUP ROAD BOARD. To the Editor Sir, — Defeated on all points, 'A Poor Cocky', in to-day's issue makes such an inane remark as 'get his hair off', and accepts two challenges I never made. 'Cocky's' ignominious climb-down over his dastardly insult to 'Grazier's' supporters presages further withdrawals. 'Cocky's' wild assertions mostly concern trivialities which he raises to obscure the issue, i.e., the loss of Balingup's only choice reserve and the attempt to recover it. 'Cocky', who seems to have a cer tain amount of inside information, has only to disclose the method by which the reserve was lost in order to hastenits recovery. For 20 years the Board protected the reserve, and on 30th November voted unanimous ly to retain it as a reserve. In less than a fortnight it was open for sale. How was it done, Cocky ? The Road Board being ignored, the lead ing residents petitioned the Minister, ?and the sale of the reserve was can celled. Meantime, the engineer again got busy ; the third...

Rifle Hotel. CAPEL. .
