Opportunity [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 11 August 1939
Opportunity. 000 They say that opportunity knocks at every man's door at least once in his lifetime. But the trader is more fortunate, for opportunity knocks at his door on a number of times in the year, but how often he does not avail himself of it. Christmas, Easter and Mother's Day offer opportunities to increase sales turnover a hundredfold, but does it? The big city stores earn the goodwill of the public by carrying stocks to suit these seasons, and they let the public ,know they have those goods per medium of the press. Does the local trader let the local, public know through the local press that he also has articles in stock for these occasions? some do, but many don't Another of these opportunities occurs on September 3, when daddy has his moment-Father's Day. The enterprising business management will prepare now to meet the keen buying which will undoubtedly take. place during the week prior to dad's triumphal day. Get busy, local. shopkeeper; stock up, and advertise the fa...

Bainarring Too Strong For Hastings IN B GRADE FOOTBALL DESPITE a nice calm day conditions for Saturday's match were - not pleasant owing to' the waterlogged nature of the Balnarring ground after a weeks' almost incessant rain. Balnarring made one change in the side which defealted Depot, Max Man nix replacing Pegrum who was ill. Hastings were not at full strength, re gulars in W. Carmichael, W. and A. Woolley, V. Warne and the captain and coach D. Smyth, being absent. It was a poor, scrambly game neither side playing good football. Balnarring, much superior, did not seem to play all out which is surpris ing as it is likely that the first two positions. on the premiership list will be decided on percentages. The wet muddy nature of the ground was of course against football at its best and an indifferent ex hibition of umpiring by Langholtz did not improve matters. Final scores: Balnarring 16-21, Hastings-Tyabb .4-2.. Goal-kickers for Balnarring: Kerr (4), V. Mannix (3), Wilksch (3), ...
Felix Holt Says [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 11 August 1939
Felix_ olt Says oOo THAT radio entertainment is now accepted by young 1939 as a matter of course. Yet it seems only five minutes ago that we listened with rapt attention to gramaphone recitals in the home ,and listened patiently and admiringly to the same records played week after week. How things change. Now we can listen to the latest and best class of record. (and the worst). Radio has certainly brightened life for many people, particularly those who are bedridden. He hitch-hiked his memory back recently' to the times when he was a lad. The enter tainment in the home in those days was very simple, yet none the less entertaining. Young 1939 may boast of his "Ginger," his "Oswald," and "Little Eric," but young 1900, got just as much fun out of magic lanterns, family concerts around the piano, and Sunday school high teas. And young 1900 was not so darned sophisticated. This "prompt the 'query: What radio session is the most populart Some sessions claim vast audiences throughout the ...
