SCOUTS AND GUIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
SCOUTS AND GUIDES. The Boy Scout and Girl Guide Movement is firmly implanted on the Peninsula, and the Frankston troops are numerically strong, .and in the standard of their boys and girls. Probably the Scout and Guide spirit is stronger here than in .:many districts which possess . toops and' companies.

ODE TO A THESPIAN YEARN [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
ODE-TO A THESPIAN YEARN Of me, 'tis said. I talk too much - ,Of this and that and such and such - Of "shoes and ships. and- sealing wax" - And all things - barring income tax. But now I turn down oral capers, (I hope they'll print this in the Spapers),. My tongue-forsaken for the pen To bring. a wish before your ken. You well may ask of whom I write. - I'll tell you. I don't mind a mite. I mean the local Frankston Groupers, That band of real hard-working troupers. The strain and stress with which they cope Have bred a deep abiding hope That somewhere, someday, 'neath this dome They'll find a place to call their home. A place in, which to store their gear, Wherein they can, from year to year Present, with all the grace and case Their plays and shows, which always please. But building perinits - .cash as well And things I can't begin to- tell Postpone their hopes to some far date. In fact, it's in the hands of fate, But are they down -about their plight? No, friends, for they have see...
LANGWARRIN PROGRESS ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCEMENT Desirable Improvements in Road Maintenance [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
LANGWARRIN PROGRESS ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCEMENT Desirable Imirovements in Rood Maointenance Everyone's grievance, more or less, has been the district's ne cessity for better roads. Whilst appreciating the fact that lack of finance, as in the majority of Shires, is the factor which pre cludes Cranbourne Council from embarking on desirable road maintenance programmes, excep tionally good news is in store for district residents. At the last meeting of the Aangwarrin and District Progress Association, Cr. A. E. Webb was. most elated at being able to an nounce this encouraging item re the age-old question. of roads. It was again indicated that, .not withstanding extreme pressure-by he Council, last year absolutely no finance as forthcoming from he Government nor the Country hoads Board for -local' roads, I hih resulted in poor progress sing m, ade r ess being made - much. to ..the Shir's dissatisfaction.,:Due large-" y to foreign heavy traffic, 'some:. of the roads were in ursent need of at...

RADIO REVIEW IMMIGRANT SENSATIONS HAVE YET TO PROVE IT [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
IMMIGRANT SENSATIONS HAVE YET TO PROVE IT One would find it impossible to enthuse over the "sensations" found by "Radio Auditions" among the immigrants living at Broadmeadows -: g . I heard' Viede, the baritone, and. Ndvistic, the Violinist, in KZ's "Monbulk Jamboree" the other' night. I also heard a lot of other things, few of which were pleasing to the ear. ..But to. return to the "sorsa tions." They aren't.: Not, at any rate, if they are to be judged on their "Monbulk Jamboree" per-: formances, ' panim?ents. provided for the "sen sations,' were anything. but sen sational. That. was ,the, 'pro grainme's No. '1 discordant note. Searching further, for excuses, perhaps it could be expected that the performers :would be. more than a little nervous during their first "'big'" broadcast. But, taking`:the obo.s. as they appeared, ,to:: listenersr on'- the night under review, 'one must, with accustomed brutality,'nom inate the' baritone 'asa :.good baritone - in "Radio Audi. tions."

XY Pulls A Swift One [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 5 October 1949
XY Pulls A: Swift One Like. a handful of other list .eners, I fell for the three-card trick . by turning ,to XY on Tuesday night of last week to hear the much-discussed Pastor Niemnoller .interviewed in the session, "In The News." 'Instead, I heard a Mr. Kemp talk "a lot about economics, de pressions, and- incentive pay ments. What happened to the Pastor, XY? "The Herald," published only' a few. hours' before the broadcast was due, listed the Niemoller interview in its 'Worth Hearing" column. That drew us onr. . W Was that "Herald" par onlya decoy? An effort to get cheap publicity? Or was the programS ming error an honest one? What ever the purpose,-the effect of the scheme:was to mislead and annoY listeners. To make the insult an injury, XY. neither apologised.nor ex plained away the "Herald tan nouncement. Which ade ,uthis listener think t that the pemolleas of the provocative Niemller . just a stunt. g s the Cin Ihope m wong as the', derella", station canno or think offend listen...
