NOTELETS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 30 May 1914

NOTELET s. Last Saturday's defeat was not un. expected. Supporters are hopeful that it will have a good clfcct ill causing the managemllcent to strengtlhen the weak spots. T'he weakest spot of all is the centre line. Another good wing man is badly needed ; (Baxter might bhe tried there) also another lirst class follower. Already the comllittee are oil tile look out for men to fill those positions and hopes of a "indt," as tile result of a trip to the country by a member of committee last Saturday, are cltertained. 'There :larc, no doubt, miany good fool b;llcrs about, oultside senior ranks, but the only \way to get tihem is to scarch for them There is too great a tendency locally for ol( timcrs-w\hat some term "lights of otlher days."

FOOTBALL. FOOTSCRAY v NORTH MELBOURNE FOOTSCRAY VANQUISHED. A DISAPPOINTING DISPLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 30 May 1914

SFOOTBALL. : . Notes by "h0AL FOiWAIln" FOOTSCRAY v NORTH MELBOURNE FOOTSCRAY VANQUISHIED. A DISAPI'POINTING DISPLAY. As a general rule the lmatches between Footscray and North Melbourne tor the past few years lhave been worth going a long way to witness, but that on Saturday last proved an exception to the rule. The con test, which took place on the North Mel bourne ground, was started with commnnlend able punctuality, and that was about the only redeeming feature cfthlcegame. Those who came late made up for it by leaving early. Footscray never at any time looked like winners, and the manner in which some of thle players muddled the ball when they did happen to get hlold of it was almost pathletic. FIootscray decided to kick towards the town end and had the benefit of a slight breeze. Gardiner stopped a Footscray rush and drove the ball to thie centre where, assisted by a free kick, Morat passed to Hawkins, and a behlind \was rtshed. Ilavw kins followed shortly after with a goal.

WEST FOOTSCRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 30 May 1914

WEST FOOTSCRAY. Members of the West Footscray Progress Association, headed by Mr. F. C. Hills, invaded the council chamber on Monday last and had a quiet talk on the wants of the "outer suburbs." One speaker after an- other commented on the necessity of some alteration being made to the upper reaches of Barkly street, when lo and behold, one speaker had the temerity to say that the street should not be touched until such time as the drainage scheme, now under way, was in operation. This speak- er supported the contention of Mr. Neyland (put forward some weeks         ago) right down to the last letter- aye, even down to the final comma- and it was quite refreshing to hear him say that the engineer, who was responsible for the early coustruction of the street, knew his business, not withstanding all that has been said derogatively of it. Mr Armitage, who was the first speaker, got going quickly by stating that last week there was an...

FOOTBALL. FOOTSCRAY V. NORTHCOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 6 June 1914

FOOTBALL. Notes by "hALt FORWARD." FOOTSCRAY V. NORTHCOTE. Many supporters, or ex-supporters of the Footscray club stayed away fromn last Sat urday's contest between Footscray and Northcote at the Western reserve because they were thoroughly disgusted with the previous Saturday's showing at North hlel - bourne. Others were absentees because nothing like a rattling contest was antici pated owing to Northcoto's failure to build up a strong team. Andt many of thouse who did Attend were attracted by the desire to see recruits in action, in the hope that the new men on trial would prove themselves worthy to fill the places of soma of the veterans who, hIaving given the club splen did service in thie past, appear to have reached that stage when if they hIave the ability to do great deeds they have lost the inclination, or who, still possessing tile in clination; have lost the ability. And from that aspect the afternoon wvas not si)ent in vain, Certainly as a display of football the match ...

lEvery time, or almost every tine, any thing of a progressive character is men tioned at the table of thie Footscray coulncil someone is sure to narki, that. good and all as the proposal is, thie coun cil is not justified in going on with it while the people are clamnouring for roads and footpaths. Of course, tlh public man who argues in that strain is con vinced that what he says is sound but in reality he is a wet blanket and sees no further ahead than his nasal apipend age. The municipality that devotes all its attention to roads and footpaths will never be a desirable plnce to live in, especially when, as in ' ootscray, nature has been so lax in its distribution of favors. That old-fashioned policy means stagnation, unattractiveness and costly effete methods. The health of the people demands that there shall be parks and gardens and street trees; and revenue Iproducing enterprises are necessarl. Where the expenditure of money mieans better admiinistraticn and savings, it means, ...

DESIRE FOR P'RO GRESS. ASSUCIATION TO BE FOlIiMED AT YARRA VILLE.

A meeting to-discuss pre liminaries held at tlhe Yarraville Maso nic .Hall last Tuesday evening, was fairly well attended, although the fact it was to be held was not sulliciently advertised, and tile discussion that re suitedl showed that residents have a clear grasp of the possibilities of such an institution. Mr W. C.
