Sir,-The visitor to Franketoni in deed must be struck with the display of fine fruit, ,vegetables and oithe farm "produce offered to the higheeit bidder as the market-.day comes round.- There the frugal housekeeper' without the middleman, may.provide supplies to keep the family in clover until the next current cash falls due. Her sister in other parts has to de pend upon John Chinaman for garden produce, and is glad to get what she can at any price and be thankful for the deal. The grower here has to be content with what he can get in the local market according to supply and demand. The Mornington Peninsula has a great future. Nature has done much for it, and left the rest to man. Yet it is strange how few settlers have inade it their home. The bush, sea and mountain air makes it a'de lightful place of residence, and its prox...

Moore[?]duc's Victory [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
Mcora .duc's Victory The first semi-final in the Sec ond Association was played at Mornington last Saturday, when Moorooduc defeated Hastings by 5.4 to 4.4. The nature of the play was very good, and the red and whites, under the experienc ed leadership of Jim Wilson, are likely to go close to landing the premiership. On the winning side none were better than Grierson, Sheridan, Connell, Wilson, the Sheafs and Higgens, whilst Ro meo, Dalton, Lake, Langholtz and Joseph were most prominent for the conquered,
Hastings Scores Heavily [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
Hastin2g Scores Heav:'~y On Saturday last the Naval Base journeyed to Hastings. The result of the match depended on Hastings' entry .into.the finals, but the issue was never in doubt, for right from the start Hastings took charge and ran out winners by 18.18 to 7.8. .The Naval lads were never in the hunt, chiefly because they are a weakened team, brought about by internal dissention amongst themselves. Osborne umpired well, and when the game finished both sides gave him hearty cheers.

Life Saving at Seaford. To the Editor. Sir,-About 3 years : ago aLife Saving Association was started at Seaforzd,iaud was offlcially launched. It was apparently agoing concern for the minute., The first annual meet ing was held and a credit balance cf about £12 waS shownu.~ :This .vas ahout 2 years ago, and.. officers were elected the same night for ithe en uning term.; It now seems that these oficers were elected for andlnlellulte period, 'or, rather, -that s is. their attitude to the Society, as no attempt has been made to call another . meet ing. : In common , with others,; I joined upn at the last meeting, and assisted and voted for--Mr. Moffat, president; Mr. Pitt, secretary.;. Mr M?lCulloch, .vice-presldent,, and a committee. Now, -I-would like'to ask these gentlemen why they are ignoring the membes of the Society, and why are the fpnds being held up. Why don't they call a meeting? The attitude of the officers is not at all fair, and soma queer comments are being made.' Here w...
Carrum's Successes [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
Carrum:s Successes: ,;Well, .exceptfor the finals, the competitive -matches' of the 1921 season have become a memory of the past. Carrum have secured the minor premiership with 8 points to spare, and, judging by the way they defeated Somer ville, :the premiership looks quite a gift for Carlson's brigade. All, except the bat-eyed minority who cannot stand seeing their own pets defeated, will congratulate Carrum on their fine attainment. Acontemporary has hinted that Carrumnwould not be admitted to .he Peninsula.

The Pictures [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
The Pictures Excellent programme last Sat urday night, with a. good atten dance. Mitchell Lewis's "King Spruce." whilst interesting, was not quite as thrilling as some of his previous'pictures, but it .was, nevertheless, a. typical story of the Maine forests. Ann Luther, was attractive in -.-"Neglected Wives," but the best acting was done by Claire Whitney as the Parisian adventuress. This dain ty actress _was last seen here in "Ruling Passions.'" The programme for SaturdayS night will be headed by Alice Joyce in "The Prey," a sensat ional story of tarigled lives.

The Truth about Wool. Decontrol Did Not Cause Drop in Price. Farmers' Union Statement Refuted. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 19 August 1921
. The Truth about Wool. Decontrol Did "Not Cause Drop in Price. Farmers' Union Statement Refuted. An illustration ., the canacity of the lender of the Farmers' Union for misconstruing. fact and distorting the truth to bo'stor up a very weak :rgnumcnt is furniahecd by his state-' ment in'.his policy speech regarding the price of wool following decontrol. Air. Allnn insinuated that, because of decontrol, wool fell to a price that was disastrous to tVe growcr. There certainly was a drop in the price oft wvool, hut it was not caused by decontrol. "A decline in price was absolutely inevitable, and wool grow ers all over Australin quite real:ced it. To compare wool with wheat is ridiculous. Entirely -diTerent condi- - tions govern the cae o: the two commodities. Under control a huge orcumulation of woqj was nasmnaad.
