The Standard EDITORIAL PAGE Editorial Thursday, August 4, 1949. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 4 August 1949
The Standard &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Editorial Thursday, August 4, 1949. Is it possible for Australians to recapture that spirit of &nbsp; unity which was one of the higlilights of the home front during World War 2? In a country where the very rich are very few, and also, now, the very poor very few, the bulk of the people &nbsp; being engaged in occupations of varyiuig degrees of importance, earning their livelihood, there is not the slightest reason why we should not possess that outlook of friendliness to our neigh- bors which characterised 1939-45. Is there any need for the bitter political wrangling which divides Labor and Liberal supporters? Or is it just something whipped up by leaders to ensure a continuance of a Parliamentary job? Political ques- tions are discussed today in an atmosphere somewhat resembling a war-time front-line. Is this necessary in sunny, prejudice-free Australia? The national ideals of almost every Australian househo...

FRANKSTON THEATRE. GROUP (By "Stargazer") On September, 15,- 16 and 17 "Grand National -Night"' will be presented under the direction of Bill Williams. This absorbing play by Dorothy and Campbell Christie, opens with a thrilling prologue that tells of the under current between a man and his wife. The latter is "flash," of loose morals, a. hard drinker and self-willed. One wonders how her 'charming husband ever came to wed 'one so obviously below his own'status. The difficult role of the wife (around whom the 'entire play swvivels) will' be played by Wyflne Morriss. This will be her second role; her first was. in "Jupiter Laughs," some eighteen mqnths ago,..when she gave a ret'y good. pqrformance as "Gladys Bragg," and, what is not generally known, with only three weeks' rehearsals, she stepped iri to the shoes of another who was unable to continue in the role.
