The Control of the Air. A STERN STRUGGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 25 September 1914
The Control of the Air. A STERN STRUGGLE. A struggle has begun on the' Con tinent for the military control of the air. No longer a phantasy of the novelist, or a dream of the inventor, the fight for mastery is being waged under the very eyes of wondering Europe. The two com batants, needless to say, are France and (Germany; and- how far this struggle already has been carried, is shown- in an able paper -by Mr. Theodore M. R. von Keler. The Zeppelins are by far the fast est aerial cruisers, possessing a speed of seventy-five feet per se cond, while the fastest French ships so far have only been able to make fifty-tw'o feet per second, long-dis tance flights in each case being figured as a basis for the calcula 'tion. The new German naval Zep pelin, too, holds the endurance re cord of over 31 hours in the air, during the course of which it cov-. ered 1,200 miles and broke the re cord of the "Adjutant Reau '3 of 21 hours 21 minutes and 569 miles, made a year ago. France pays special at...

HAWTHORN CITY BAND. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 25 September 1914
HAWTHORN CITY BAND, A musical band, well organised, well disciplined, and well trained, is one of the most valuable assets any city can possess. Valuable because its power for good is so far-reaching that all classes of the community reap benefit froni its operations. The diffi culty with such. institutions is. their upkeep, inasmuch as to keep pace with the growing requirements of the people it is essential that the very latest and best in the musical world should be secured. Our residents are *just as keen on hearing good music as their neighbours in other municipalites, and our bandsmen are equally keen on giving its patrons of the best. That our band has done this its successes and trophies prove, and now ways and means have to be provided that they may proceed to Ballarat and there do friendly battle with other bands, and, we trust, bring back fresh honours to Hawthorn. Discarding the old time policy of trusting solely to subscriptions and donations, their committee have come b...
