SHOULD WOMEN SMOKE? [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 10 October 1914
SHOULD WOMEN SMOKE? Should women smoke? A' pas oenger by one of, the ocean liners settled-the question as far as she was personally concerned, recently. She was a young woman of superior ad dress, and she--sauntered (up and down the Railway pier puffing at a cigarette as if to the manner born though every smoker knows that the habit is acquired at the expense of some physical discomfiture at the outset. What the habit costs a woman to acquire the mere man can only conjecture. He may be: as sumed to have a rough idear--judg ing from his own (average) experi ences. The question as to whether women should smoke, however, would seem to depend upon whether the habit is physically injurious or not. Logically there is no valid reason why she should not smoke; physio logically the verdict of science--es pecially as regards the pernicious cigarette habit-is against her; and if it be injurious to the male, how much more may it be assumed to be so when one considers the more de licate organisa...
PATRIOTIC CONCERT. THIN ATTENDANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 10 October 1914
PATRIOTIC CONCER'T. THIN ATTENDANCE. A splendid programme greeted 'those who attended the local town hall on Monday evening, when a patriotic concert, arranged by Mr. Frank Barbour, was held in support of the local Patriotic Fund. The Mayor (Cr. T. Smith) presi ded. The attendance was small though appreciative. The programme submitted was of a most entertaining and bright character, Mr. Barbour evidently having bestowed care in making selections from amongst the ranks of first class artists, with whom he is closely associated. The pity was the absence of a full house to enjoy the excellent items presented. From a financial standpoint, how ever, we understand sufficient tickets had been dispdsed of previous to the concert to ensure a success, and it is anticipated that an amount in the vicinity of '15 will result. Miss M. Keyhoe acted as accom paniste. A vote of thanks was tendered Mr. Barbour and the per formers.
