Local Soldiers Entertained
As usual, there was a big attendance at the social in honor of two members of the A.I.F., Private Fred. Piera (elder son of Mr and Mis C. A. Piera, Moe) and Gunner Hedley Robins (son of Mrs Robins, of Erica,formerly of Moe and Willowgrove), on Friday night last.

Items were interspersed with the dancing, music for which was provided by Miss Florence Smith, at the piano, assisted by Mr Baillie, with his banjo. Miss Jean Craton sang "Street Song" and "Love is All," and Miss Greta Keily
rendered "Here in the Quiet Hills" and "I Passed by Your Window." Both soloists were accompanied by Mrs
Maddison. The chairman (Mr H. Margin) invited the guests of -the evening to seats on the stage, which, incidentally, had been artistically decorated with dahlias, gladioli, colored Easter Daisy and pretty gum-tips by
the secretary (Mrs F. C. Robinson).

Mr Martin said that once more they had met to honor two old district residents who had joined the Forces and would be going overseas.' On behalf of the citizens of Moe, he welcomed them, and also heartily welcomed
their relatives.

Most of those present knew the two guests of honor a great deal better than he did, although he had known them
for quite a while. They did not know where they were going; but, wherever it was, it would be well in a very great danger zone.

The activities of the war were spreading. While they anticipated this would happen before it was all over, none realised how far it was going to extend. They now had troops in Africa, Europe and Asia, and also Canada, which was a training centre. However, they still hoped to soon see the end of it. Each conflict in this war had been sharp
and sudden.
Fortunately for our troops, the losses in lives were very small, compared with the gains. The results were remarkable, considering the small loss of life, which was very different to the last war. The two soldiers they were entertaining had been residents of the district for many years.

Mr Martin congratulated them on the step they were taking. A number of others had gone to take part in other war activities, but would not be leaving our shores. None the less, they provided tools of offence, and were probably more important than any taking part in the war - more so in this war than in any previous war.

This was a machine war, and they must congratulate those who were providing the fuel for the A.I.F. Mr Martin then called on Mr T. Drew to speak on behalf of the Returned Soldiers' League. Mr Drew apologised for the
absence of the president of the local branch (Mr Bloye).

On behalf of the Returned Soldiers' Association, he would first of all like to congratulate "Hedley" and "Fred."
on their enterprise and patriotism, in the step they had taken. As Mr Martin had said, they did not know where they might be going, but it looked as if, at last, they would be getting into grips with the Huns. They would then know they had been fighting. Australian troops were acknowledged by all as excellent fighters, and the present troops would uphold the traditions of those in the last war - and, if anything, enhance that name.

As soon as members of the forces left for overseas, they automatically became members of the Association.
They, therefore, had a very strong organisation looking after their interests, and those of their dependants while they were away. Mr Drew concluded by wishing the two guests a happy and successful voyage over and a safe
return.

He felt sure that when they were welcomed back they would say it had all been worth while. The Chairman here apologised for the absence of Cr. E. Hunter (who was' slightly indisposed that night), Mr and Mrs H. Robinson, and Mr and Mrs G. McDonald. Mrs Purvis handed to each of the "boys" a parcel from the Country Women's Association. She understood Private Piera was a married man, but did not know if his wife would be living in Moe. If she did, she would be welcomed into their C.W.A. Branch, as all soldiers' wives were made honorary members. Mrs Purvis wished each guest the best of luck and a safe return.

On behalf of the citizens of Moe, Mr Martin then presented to each soldier a wallet, and read the inscription thereon. From his own experience, he knew a wallet was a useful article. Each wallet contained a 1 note. Mr Martin expressed the hope that it would bring them luck, and remind them of their friends in Moe. He trusted they would come back safe and sound.

The Chairman said there were four other residents - members of the A.I.F. - who had had leave. He understood some had actually sailed. Either from bashfulness or other reasons, they had not advised anyone and the committee was not aware of their movements. Wallets would, therefore, be forwarded to Privates Don. Clegg, "Bill" Blair, and "Mick" Spittall, and Signaller Jack MacRae. They were sorry not to have had the opportunity of entertaining, them at a public gathering, such as -the one that night. However, they could not recall them, and could
only wish them the best of luck and a safe return, and that there would be a quick cessation of hostilities.

Gunner Hedley Robins said all he could do was to thank everyone for all they had done, and for the presents.
He concluded by referring to his companion, and saying - We can take it, can't we. Fred!"

Private Piera thanked all for the evening and presents. They would help to remind them of the Moe citizens when on the other side, and to get through their job.

"For They Are Jolly Good Fellows" was sung by the crowd. Dancing was continued, mid the evening's program' concluded with the sipping of Auld Lang Syne and the National Anthem. On Saturday night, at a Comforts Fund social at Willow Grove, Gunner Hedley Robins was the recipient of an Eversharp pencil, and, on Monday night, he was tendered an evening at his former place of employment, Mr Amiet's, at Darnum, where he received a wristlet watch. We understand he was being entertained at Trafalgar on Wednesday night.

Presentations to Frank Monro, Ron. McCrorey and Ern. Swingler were made at a social in the Trafalgar Scout Hall last Saturday night. The latter two were also entertained by the Trafalgar East and Yulungah residents, at a social at Trafalgar East.

Willow Grove.
At a social held in the Willow Grove Public Hall on the 23rd ult, Mr H. Robins (on behalf of subscribers) presented Mr W. Lamont with a purse of sovereigns. It will be remembered that " Will" had the misfortune to have his left arm badly crushed in a chaffcutter, as a result of which the arm had to be amputated between the elbow and shoulder. A few of his friends then set to work with subscription lists, in order to assist in giving him a fair start in life, and as a result of canvassing, the neat little sum of 65 was collected. This was contained in the purse handed to him at the aforementioned function, which was fairly well attended.
" Will" expressed his thanks to his friends for their kindness and sympathy, while his father (Mr H. Lamont) voiced his appreciation - and also that of his wife and family - of the effort put forth by their friends to assist the afflicted young fellow. Mr Lamont supported the remarks made by Mr Robins as to the aid rendered by Mr Hall, who -
by his first-aid work - he believed to have been the means of saving Willie's life. - Dancing was the chief amusement during the social, and was kept up till the wee small hours of the morning. Refreshments (served at midnight) were kindly supplied by the ladies. The music was provided gratuitously, by Messrs W. Burgess (piano) and Westneat and Monger (violin),while Mr B. Cadden officiated as M.C.

(From Our Correspondent).
A meeting of ratepayers was held at Willow Grove on Saturday evening last to consider the above matter.
-Ratepayers were in attendance from Moe, Hill End, Yarragon (Cr. O'Toole), and Willow Grove, Mr H. Robins
(Willow Grove) presiding
.-Mr W. H. Burrage, Junr. was appointed secretary.-Mr D. S. Espie moved, seconded by Mr F. Fechner-"That an extra riding in the Shire of Narracan be formed, by a division of the North Riding." The motion was carried, Mr C. Watkins alone opposing it.-
The Secretary read five reasons he had drawn up in favor of the proposal.-
Cr O'Toole advised the forming of a committee to work the matter up a little.-Mr D. Espie asked the Chairman
to test the meeting re the formation of a committee, and Mr Warner Burrage subsequently moved "That a committee be appointed to attend to the matter of establishing an additional riding." Seconded by Mr C.H. Williams, and carried.-Mr W. EL Burrage, Senr. then moved, and Mr F. Fechner seconded, " That the following gentlemen constitute a committee, with power to add-Moe, Messrs J. W Dent and Chas. Brock ; Willow Grove, Cr Lamont and Mr H. Robins; Hill End, the Secretary and Mr D. Espie ; Fumina, Messrs Walter Mitchell, J.P., and E. J. Cronin."-Carried.-The matter of deciding on boundaries was then discussed. It was eventually decided not to fix any definite boundary for the time-being, the Secretary being instructed (on the motion of
Messrs Anstey and F. Fechner) to send a plan of the suggested boundary, together with a petition, to each of the Committee to obtain signatures, and in that way test the feeling of the ratepayers -The suggested boundary, and there were no dissentients, was as follows:-" Commencing at the railway, following the road north to the main drain (between the properties of Messrs Lloyd and Thos. Gooding), across the main drain east to Miller's road, following Miller's road north (between blocks S and 27 on the west and 22, 23A and 23B on the east), thence in a north-westerly direction to the Trafalgar Willow Grove road [about four miles from Trafalgar-between blocks 34 and 70], along the Willow Grove-Trafalgar road to the Old Melbourne Road and following the latter to the western boundary of the shire."

We have received a sample of wheat (grain) taken from a crop grown by Mr H. Robins, of Willow Grove. The sample, though perhaps not quite up to the standard of that obtained in the northern parts of the State, is a good one, and suggests the possibility of wheat being cultivated with success in this district. Mr Robins took a sample
of the grain to Melbourne on Monday, and intends to obtain the opinion of experts concerning it.

EXTRAORDINARY ELECTION
EXTRAORDINARY
ELECTION
NORTH
RIDING.
POLLING DAY:
TO-MORROW (THURSDAY).
To-morrow (Thursday) the ratepayers of the north riding of the Narracan Shire will be called upon to elect a councillor to fill the vacancy caused by the retirement of Mr. Lamont. The candidates are Mr H. Robins, of Willow Grove, and Mr W. J. Savage, of the Moe Swamp. The supporters of either candidate are sanguine of success, but the fact that the seat has been held by a resident of the Willow Grove district for over 80 years is weighing considerably with ratepayers situated outside the Swamp area, and on this account alone it is felt that a large majority of the votes at both Moe and Yarragon, besides those of the outside districts, will be cast in favor of Mr Robins. The idea of giving one part a representative at the expense of another part is considered to be altogether wrong, and it is felt that if the Swamp area must have a resident representative -its wants have been attended to fay the three north riding councillors in the past- it can only be done by a division of the riding. This would meet with the approval of a majority of the ratepayers in the riding, and prove a benefit to all concerned.

Despite, the exceptionally inclement weather, a fair muster of delegates was present. Branches represented

In his opening address. Mr. H. Robins (president) thanked members for their presence on such a rough day, and considered that delegates would eventually be well repaid for their splendid loyalty to their organisation.

Long discussion took place in regard to the organising of the Walhalla electorate, and it was decided "That an early application be made to Central Council for the services of an efficient organiser Mr. Geo Southgate moved that the system of pre-selection of candidates be reinstated. Carried.
Narrican East:- That this council deplores the serious spread of ragwort in Gippsland, It was decided to place
the matter under the notice of the in spector under the Noxious Weeds Act.
Mr. Southgate moved: - That a combined annual V.F.U". social be held in Warragul under the auspices of the
Warragul District Council, each of the local branches contributing its quota towards the cost: the entertainment to be free; delegates to refer to their branches, and advise secretary Warragul branch;- at earliest convenience."
Lardner Branch:- "that this council urges State Country Party members to seek an amendment of the Whole Milk Bill, granting municipal control."
Tetoora Road branch: - "That the Warragul District Council, V.F.U.. urges Country Party members to make representation to the Minister in charge to have amended the Whole Milk 'Bill, based on the finding of the High Cost of -Living Commission, thus guaranteeing the producer at least the cost of production and the consumer milk at its true value under municipal control and the block system of delivery; further, this council urges that the proposals submitted by Mr. Schweiger, secretary Royal Agricultural Society, be adopted."
In moving the resolution, Mr, Neil Macfarlane said he would suggest that the two motion be taken as one. This was agreed to. Continuing, the speaker said the time had arrived when those engaged in the whole milk industry must alter the unsatisfactory conditions obtaining. In regard to local conditions, the producer received 9d per gallon for whole milk delivered at the factory and the consumer in the city paid 2/S per gallon. The margin between what the producer received and what the consumer paid was a scandal and common sense legislation was essential in the interests of both. The proposed amendment of the Whole Milk Bill would increase the producer's price to at least 1/4 per gallon and reduce the price to the consumer to 2/ par gallon;' That political party was now in power which chad always said that if they had the reins of government they would legislate so as to bridge the
gulf between th'e producer and consumer. Now was their opportunity. Mr. Jas. Broderick (Tetoora Road) seconded, and in a vigorous address supported the previous speaker. Also Messrs. Chas .Mills, H. Robins. W.B. Hardie, Alex. Macfarlane, Geo. Southgate spoke in favor. The resolution was carried.

Obituary.
MISS JEAN ROBINS.
We have to announce, with much regret, the death of Jean, second eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stan. Robins, of Trafalgar, which occurred at the West Gippsland Hospital, Warragul, on Sunday night last.

Miss Robins would have been 16 years of age in January, 1940. About two and a half years ago, when her brother (Leslie) passed away as a result of pneumonia, she, too, had the same complaint. She had since had indifferent health, although she was for some time employed in a Trafalgar bakery; but when her employers left Trafalgar, she remained at home.

About ten days, prior to her death, this young lady became seriously ill, and it was feared that she was suffering
from infantile paralysis. She was admitted to the West Gippsland Hospital. She failed to improve, and succumbed to the effects of meningitis on Sunday night.

Much sympathy for the bereaved parents, sisters (Sheila, Nell and Pat.) and brother (Ray) is expressed. As the funeral left her parent's home, on Tuesday afternoon, the hearse was preceded by members of the Trafalgar Girl Guides and Brownies, in which the late Miss Robins had taken a prominent part. On the edge of the town, they formed a guard of honour, through which the funeral cortege passed on Its way to the Trafalgar Cemetery. The service at the graveside was read by Mr. J. G. Irons (Presbyterian Minister). There were many beautiful floral tributes. Mr: R. S. Robertson had charge of the funeral arrangements. Miss Robins was a grand-daughter of Mrs. Robins, of Erica (formerly of Moe and Willow Grove), who since this bereavement has gone from her son's home in Trafalgar to another son (Roy),at Yarragon. He is seriously ill as a result of war injuries, and quite recently was in the Caulfield Military Hospital.
