CHAIN LETTERS. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 28 July 1939
CHAIN LETTERS. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I would like to bring under the notice of your readers the large number of simple-minded ,persons who are in the habit of sending chain let ters and who, in my opinion, 'should be placed in safe keeping. I have had two during the last two months. T was surprised to see the names of some local people. It would have been better if they sent the value of the stamps to our local hospital in stead of sending such trash. Vic Christy must have broken the chain; that is why he got knocked about so much.--Yours etc., Edithvale, B. ROSE. (Chain letters should be consigned to the fire. People who send them must either be mentally deficient or secret agents of the P.M.G., boosting pnstal revenue.-Ed.)
Sporting Highlights [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 28 July 1939
Sporting Highlights t -- U U,' tre er The report that the Epsom racecourse will' not be used again for e race meetings can.be taken as authentic. It is understood that meetl ti ings which have in the past been held there will be transferred (peo viding approval of the Chief Secretary is given) to Mentone. This will no doubt result in more and more improvements to the already wel. equipped Mentone course, which will in a few years rival Caulfleld and Moonee Valley in its appointments. A Years ago a horse trained "down-the-line" was shrouded in an impenetratable air of mystery. Btt those days are gone for ever. ien in tone and Epsom courses will in the years to come be the centre oi the horse training industry of Victoria. Each year numbers of trainersf from Caulfield and Flemington wend their way down-the-line. uhere they find that the conditions suit their charges. Building restrictions in those centres are also driving the.trainers away. Mentone course, will some day be a ivorthy r...
Felix Holt Says [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 28 July 1939
Felix Holt Says THAT this little boil-over regarding the National Register is inter. -t esting from a psychological point of view. It seems to point to the fed that Australians hate to be regimented. Go back through Ausralia 1' history and you will find that whenever any Government action he re been proposed which kind of drove the people in mobs, there has lnuy ably been uproar. The Australian has a wonderful- character; be undoulitedly. the ihost i'dependent cuss in the iworld. He is kind, he generous, he will fight for a cause to the last ditch, his bravery renowned, but he won't be driven. It has been often said that Australians are more loyal to the Croon ea than even. the English themselves. That might be a slight exagger, at tion, but even those who, talk loudest about refusing to comply lthb On certain Acts passed at Canberra, if it came to a show-down those very ho men would be among the bravest in our army. Past history proves that It is a pity that so much fuss is being m...
