    Some of the men employed on home service duties at the Mont Park military convalescent hospital are stated to havo refused to carry out orders recently because they were required to work on Sunday. Tho statement is denied by Colonel the hospital. Ho explained on Saturday that as there was urgent work to be performed in connection with the putting up of the new hospital at Mont Park, it was deemed necessary a week ago to issue orders that the staff should attend for duty on the Sunday. Men enlisted for home service were required to perform Sunday duty when necessary, although as a general rule they were allowed freedom on that day. Exception was taken by one man to the curtailment of leave during the week end in question, but all the men paraded on Sunday morning and 'worked like niggers.' nc added that he had no complaint

    War News and Notes. Mont Park Military Hospital. By the Acting Senior Chaplain. Probably not many of our readers have any idea of the extensive preparations made for our returned sick at Mont Park General Hospital, No. 16, near Heidelberg. The work has, till recently, been carried on in a comparatively small block of buildings, known as No. 14, but. this is now closed, and the men have been transferred to No. 16. No. 16 consists of an immense crescent of buildings, made up of 13 . self-contained blocks, two-storied, and when all' the fittings are put together, complete in every detail. The central block is Headquarters, and ranged on either side are six blocks for the men. We were introduced to the CO., Colonel Embling, and were kindly shown around by Major Downing, one of the medical officers. Captain Heyward is also attached. So Method-ism is well represented. When full, there will be about 1,000 men occupying the splendid buildings. The formation of the grounds is in process, and as we visited the works on a wet afternoon, last Friday, we saw that much, more has to be done. We also visited the tubercular camp, some distance further on. Here are a number of chalets, with others in process of erection, and ? about 100 patients will be accommodated. The medical officer in charge is our old friend, Major Mitchell, late of Ballarat. Improvements are to be made in the old Rest Camp, on the further side of the extensive grounds, and more men will find a congenial temporary home there. In addition, a portion, of the main buildings is set apart for mental cases, those suffering from shell shock, and similar painful troubles. One cannot but feel, that the Defence Depart- ? ment is making the very best provision for our noble men, and parents and friends, may rest content if their boys, and friends are sent to Mont Park for treatment. Our visit was in connection with chaplaincy arrangements. The Rev. Henry Robinson for the past three years, has most faithfully carried out his work. Services have been regularly held, and methodical pastoral visitation attended to, and officers and men show their warm ap-preciation of Mr. Robinson's work. Our people who have boys in. No. 16, or in any other part of the Mont Park institutions, may take it for granted that the spiritual welfare of their dear ones will not be in any way neglected, and a line to Rev. H. Robinson, Brown-street, Heidel-berg-, will assist the chaplain greatly.

    LAWN TENNIS. ASSOCIATION MEETING. A largely attended meeting of the Lawn Tennis Association of Victoria wan held at the Amateur Sports Club on Tuesday evening. The president (Mr. Theyre a'B. Weigall, K.C.) presided. Mr. Malcolm, the hon. treasurer of the fund being raised by the tennis players of Victoria to provide an asphalt court for use of convalescent soldiers at Mont Park Military Hospital, reported that the subscriptions received to date totalled £115, and that an additional £60 would have to be raised before the work of construction of the court could be proceeded with. A further appeal will be made by circular to members of the L..T.A.V. to support this movement to provide health-giving recreation for our battle-scarred war-riors The hon. treasurer reported that the cash re sources of the association had increased by £100 since the statement submitted in June last year, this amount being represented by the dividend re ceived from the Australasian association out of profits from international matches for the Davis Cup.

    INVALIDED SOLDIERS AND WORK. It is at last being realized that it is not in the best interests of invalided soldiers to allow them during the period, of their convalescence in hospital to lounge away the whole of their time playing bowls, smoking cigarettes, and generally leading a life of slothful ease (says The Melbourne Age). The men themselves have certainly not enjoyed such an existence, but in the past, for the want of something better to do, they had no alternative to lolling about the hospital grounds. Other and more use ful means of spending their time are now being provided for convalescing soldiers. At the Mont Park Military Hospital in Victoria a model poultry farm is to be started for the benefit of tbe patients, while classes in gardening, typewriting, plumbing, tailoring, photography, and boot repairing are being arranged. A garden ing class is already at work, and the men who have joined it are taking the keenest interest in the subject. The tasks given them are very light, but they have already prepared 10,530 cuttings, potted 1345 plants, and got 60 seed boxes in operation.

    COURT FOR CONVALESCENT SOLDIERS. Mr. HI. Malcolm, who has charge of the admin istration of the fund raised by tennis players to provide a tennis court at the Mont Park Military Hospital for the use of returned convalescent sol diers, has experienoed considerable difficulty in carrying out the objects of thin patriotic move-ment, owing to the excessive cost of labor and materials. The lowest estimate received for the fencing alone and the erection of four net posts was £186, which would have absorbed the whole of the amount subscribed. It is proposed to construct earth courts instead of asphalt, and to arrange for the whole of the work to be done by day labor.

    HORTICULTURAL NOTES.
    The Commissioners of Railways have consented to carry free of charge all cut flowers to the railway station Macleod, for the military hospital at Mont Park. There is a regular service of carriage between the latter place and the railway station. Fresh flowers are much prized by our sick and wounded soldiers at the hospital, and the concession granted by the Commissioners will greatly help the flower collectors. The Canterbury Horticultural Society moved in the matter, and has provided a number of flower boxes which can be lent to any person requiring them for the above purpose. There is a great wealth of flowers in the Canterbury district, and most persons will be pleased to help to solace our men in the hospital by means of fresh and beautiful blossoms.

    Birdwood visit to Hospital
    A square of attractive nurses and lines of soldier patients received General Birdwood, who was accompanied by Brigadier-General Brand, the State Commandant, at Mont Park military hospital. The reception was spontaneously hearty. Whilst the general was receiving the introduction of the hospital officers ,a nurse ran out from the square and confronted him with a camera and pleading request, "Just a moment, please, General!" The general gallantly faced about, and extended his chest. Immediately there was a shout, and amidst a roar of laughter a score or two of soldiers on crutches, soldier in splints and more nurses bore down upon the obliging visitor with cameras of all sizes and descriptions. Fifty cameras snapped together. Only the professional camera men stood aloof; they scorned to mix with the amateur crowd.

    MILITARY MENTAL CASES. TRANSFEE TO CIVIL CONTROL Proposal Strongly Opposed. There are at present 97 men in the Mont Park Military Hospital, suffering from the effects of war experiences. It is proposed by the State Lunacy department that these men should be transferred, 77 to MacLeod, and 10 each to the asylums at Sunbury and Kew. The men for Sunbury and Kew were to have been transferred several weeks ago, but at the last moment the Assistant Minister for Repatriation (Mr. Rodgers) de-layed that step. The reasons given for the transfer are that the buildings at Mont Park are required by the civil authorities. Strong feeling has been aroused by the proposal to remove these soldiers to a State asylum. The matter has been taken up by the Sailors and Soldiers' Fathers' As-sociation, which maintains thal the Fede-ral Government promised that the men who are suffering as a result of ser-vice for their country should he kept apart from other mental cases, and receive spe-cial treatment. It is contended that the treatment now being received by the sol-diers and that given to civil patients is different, and release from the civil institu-tion is more difficult.

    RED CROSS ASSISTANCE. Three weeks ago Her Excellency Lady Helen Munro Ferguson, as president of the Australian branch of the Red Cross, decided that the influenza epidemic should be considered a national danger. On January 24 her offer to assist the Health authorities was made, and the branches in the various municipalities, were instructed to co-operate in making preliminay arrangements in case the attach should spread. One of the first steps taken by the Red Cross was to organise the large of V.A.D.'s who, since the first year of the war, have been on daily duty as Wirth's Rest Home, Mont Park, and Macleod Hospital, as emergency workers. At the present moment there are over 200 of these.
