LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. do not hold ourselves responsible foer, r identify ourselves with, the oplnlens ipreseed by our correspondents. BOWLS AND PATRIOTISM. Sir,--In your last issue a letter ap ars, subscribed " Win-The-War," whicli thle writer singles out from long list of sport, bowling, and in rs that bowlers are so intent on "ir pastimle as to be found neglect g patriotic, antd even business ties. In selecting this particular me your contributor is most unfor nate, and for this reason, that al st without exception b Iwers are ich beyond the age liimit for active ilitary service. They certainly can lp in many other ways, such as oviding the "silver bullets," and patriotic movements. If "Win ie-War" has some special case of glect in mind he may have good rund for attacking it, but not for acking bowlers generally, for as a dy they have done their duty as as they have been able.

Paton, M.A., M.D., was the preaeher in the evening, and preached from the text, "Freely ye have received, freely give." The collection for the day was £2.5. The singing was a special feature of the ser vice, and Miss Smith was congratulated on bringing forth new talent in the church.
TOPICS OF THE WEEK. THE TRAIN SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 17 March 1917
PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING SATURDAY, MARCH 17. TOPICS OF THE WEEK. THE TRAIN SERVICE. Speaking at the luncheon at the Dia mond Creek show on Saturday, Mr J. Rouget, M.L.C., referred to the poor railway service on the Heidelberg line. The train left Melbourne at 9.40, and, arrived at Diamond"COreek at 11, a dis tance of 19 miles, and there was a change eight miles from Melbourne. That was not the way to give encouragement to make the line pay. It was put down as a non-paying line, but the traffic was not credited to the line, but to the station it leaves, and all the excursions out there from the city were credited to the sta tion it leaves. A through service is wanted. The handling of produce on the railways was not as good as it ought to be because the produce men were not in close enough touch with the railway to teach them how to handle the goods. Cr. Lorimer referred to the charges on the railway for carrying fruit, and said that it had cost 2/3 to send a case of fruit to ...

Concert at Heidelberg. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 17 March 1917
.Concert at Heidelberg. When the members of St. John's Catholic Church advertise a concert they always have something attractive, and the one given on Wednesday evening was no exception, and tile fact of the Recreation Hall being crowded to the doors was indicative of the interest taken in the performers and the object of the entertainment- the church building fund. The programme opened with a piano forte solo, by Miss Slattery, played in good style. The part singing of the "Four S's" in "Oft in the Stilly Night" was mucli enjoyed, and an encore demanded for the harmonious rendering. In the second part they were equally good in "Erin the tear and the smile." Little iMiss Dolly Solomon sang "The Long Lone Trail," which was encored, and later in the evening sang " Stop, stop, stop, stop," followed by a step dance, and the little versatile performer had to reappear. Mr John Reid's reci tation, "Fonteroy," quite eacited his hearers, who demanded more, and he gave "College Re-visited." I...

The Late Cleve. Hodge. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 17 March 1917
The Late Cleve, Hodge. The Rev W. H. Hodge, Methodist minister, of Alphington, has received the following letter relating to the death of his son :-Dear Brother, I joined up with the 23rd Battalion A I.F. a few days ago, having suc ceeded Padre Bladen as chaplain, and the first news of any importance I heard was that Private Hodge, of B Company, had been killed' in the front line trench the night before. Although they have no record of his next-tol kiin here, I am very much afraid that it is your son, as a num ber of mnen say he was the son of a Mlethodist minister in Melbourne. i am writing this to express my iost sincere sympathy with you and Mrs Hodge in your loss. As far as I can gather, his end was absolutely painless, as hie was shot through the head by a sniper, and his death was instantaneous.He, was buried at night by one of trli oflicers. I was not iet for, as it was not known that I , ..;arrivedc, and it had not been the • stom, to send for the padre to bury he men. I'm a...
Soldiers' Welfare League. HEIDELBERG BRANCH FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 17 March 1917
Soldiers' Welfare League. HEIDELBERG BRANCH FORMED. Through the instrumentality of the Ivanhoo branch of the Soldiers' Welfare League a meeting was held in Heidel berg on Tuesday evening in Scots Hall. There were 43 persons present, includ ing the Ivanhoe delegates-Cr Bryant, iMessrs Walker, Willis, and Robinson. Cr. Keam (president of the shire) pre sided, and explained thle growth of the Ivanhoe branch and the usefulness of its operations. He was of opinion that there would be a lot of work for a branch of the league in Heidelberg, in conse qluence of the repatriation movement extending to that district. There they had good lands and roads, and there was sure to be a lot of information required with reference to the soldiers at Mont Park and the land. There should be enough people in Heidelberg to form a branch from among those who are not engaged in Red Cross or other similar work. The duties should be more dis tributed than at present. *Ir J. H. Robinson said that an effort was ...

RAINFALL. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 17 March 1917
RAINFALL. iMr W. F. Casey, of the Ivanhoe State school, forwards the record of rainfall, showing that 35 points have fallen for week ending 9 a.m. on March 16, making a total of 358 points since the 1st of January. Cr. Jordon, speaking as a judge at the Diamond Creek show, had a joke at the expense of the Parliamentarians. Years ago the toast list included almost every one, but now it'was cut down to three toasts-The King, Parliament, and the Judges. He thought it could still be cut down, and drop out the least of the three. Confine it to the King and the Judges.
NATIONAL FEDERATION. BRANCH IN HEIDELBERG. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 17 March 1917
NATIONAL FEDERATION, BRANCH IN HEIDELBERG. After the conclusion of the Soldiers' Welfare League meeting in Heidelberg on Tuesday evening, the audience re- mained to hear something about the Na- tional Federation. Mr John May, who was voted to the chair, said that three gentlemen — Messrs E. Jowett, John Macmeikan and John March — had attended for the purpose of of getting a branch formed of the Na- tional Federation, and adopting the proper attitude towards the war. The Federal member for the Senate in this electorate had been hostile to conscrip- tion and had done nothing for voluntary- ism. Those who have the good of the country at heart should do something for the effort that is being made to save the Empire and civilisation. They wanted to be represented by a man who was ab- solutely loyal, and help in the same channel as the Soldiers' Welfare League. It was expected that they would have a victory in Brunswick over the sitting member. Mr Edmond Jowett (Queensland), one of the vi...
