Dromana Defeat Pearcedale AT DROMANA [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 August 1939
.Dromana. Defeat Pearcedale AT DROMANA (By Griff.)", THE Dromana: ground on..Saturday last was the scene of a very. good game of football when Pearcedale paid their return visit. It was one of the fastest games that the Dromana team has experienced this season.l, The main reason for Dromana's win was the system they played, each player seeking an opening that would be to the best advantage. Although Pearcedale played a hard game they did not have.Dromana's combination. Unfortunately there were casualties on both sides but that is liable to hap pen in any, game. SUmpire Osborne gave a good Elis play of umpiring although at times he missed free, kicks due to..both sides but we all know the umpire cannot see everything. The weather was ideal although the ground was still a bit slippery. In the first quarter. Dromana did not watch their men and lost many ad vantaiges because they would not get in froiit of 'their opponents, a point that has cost Dromana many a goal. In the secohd quarte...

Felix Holt Says [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 August 1939
Felix Holt Says oOo THAT, whilst air raid precautions are.wise, as it is'better to be prepared than caught napping, it seems a bit over the fence for the Government to push the Job of .organising the .business on to the municipalities. Why pick on the .municipalities? Possibly because: the Government was successful in. wishing on to them the adminisa tration of sustenance, which job the municipalities undertook at the time, fully alive to the poverty and want that was rampant in their midst. But, if you can believe some politicians, we are now living in an age of prosperity, yet the unfortunate municipality is still expected to carry the sustenance burden. It is to be hoped thatL all municipalities=' will flatly refuse to administer A.R.P. Undoubtedly the right men to undertake the job =which is not' likely to mean practical 'vork 'for years--probably not in our' time-are the police. They' are trained men to whom. full authority could be safely entrusted in times of'stress.: But whi...
THE SCIENTIFIC SPIRIT v. THE POLITICAL SPIRIT (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 August 1939
THE SCIENTIFIC. SPIRIT v. THE POLITICAL SPIRIT' (To the Editor) . &lt; Sir,-Our vision focussed on Eur ope reveals the triumphs of physical science, and yet the rarest thing in the world, the thing which must be searched for and seldom found is the Scientific Spirit. It may be defined as expressing, the open mind without any preconcep tions or prejudices and no trace of the temper of the dogmatist. It is moved by a great and noble spirit and passion for truth, with no fear of facts, but desirous to meet them as preferable to half truths, and of much higher value than conven tional lies. These true facts alone can supply clues to the Riddle, of the Universe. The Scientific Spirit is formed by reverence and humility, and, like true charity, it does not boast, assumes no superiority. It neither threqaens nor coaxes, and promises nothing. Compared with the Political Spirit, how great the difference, and how great is the danger to our present day civilisation! Conlmunism is emoti...
AUSTRALIA DAY (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 August 1939
AUSTRALIA DAY (To the Editor) Sir,-Your advocacy of a more wor thy celebration of Australia Day is something which has been overdue a long time. In these troublesome times it is necessary that all sections of the community should get together more than they do. Australia .Day gives a splendid opportunity for this. I hope your paper will not let uip ,on this subject, but will show as much persistence as it has with other .,ub lic questions.-Yours, etc., AUSSIE HURRAH FOR AUSTRALIA! (To the Editor) Sir,-Your letter of last week des cribed my feelings on arriving back to Australia. After several ' months :.broad in England and Am.:ric.. it struck me most forcibly that Aust ralia has everything of the best to offer, and compares most favourably with other parts of the world, but I must admit that we lack the organisa tion of say America. Or perhaps it is shyness, or laziness?. I am inclined to think it is laziness. We do not boost our own country, nor do we flag. wave nearly enough. Why...

Fraikston's Easy Win AT NAVAL DEPOT IN A GRADE F OOTBALL FRANKSTON scored a surprisingly easy victory at the Naval Depot on Saturday last. . Teamwork, deter mination and accuracy were deciding factois. Naval Depot's team was not at full strength. They opened the game with 15 men and played the greater part with 17. This proved a big handicap Aiid Frankston led at the first change by 4-6 to 1-2. With Brown and Scoble playing great football on the wings and the rucks overshadowing the opposition, Frankston was able to attack con tinubiisly. Frankston's defenders, Harry, .Rosenbrock aind Coxall were outstanding and the Depot failed to score in this term. Frankston through Staff, frequientlyr penetrated the Depot's defence and held a lead of 10-10 to 1-2 at half time. Frankston's form was vastly superior tb that shown at Mornington the previous -week. Although. the Depot played hard they could not cope with the visitor's team work and accuracy. They added 2 goals in this term to Frankst...

Somerville's entry into the four de pended on iits defeat of Sorrento last Saturday. After, one of the most ex citing matches of the season the score board showed the home teom one poln., in front at the end of play.

The final round in the senior divi sion home and home matches will be played tomorrow and cannot affect the personnel of the four in normal circumstances On present form Somerville should defeat Naval Depot at home, Morn ington account for , Hastings-Tyabb, and Sorrento should ndt:liave great difficulty in. adding, another, four points to its tally at the expense of Seaford-Carrum, although that, te...
