ST. KILDA SEAT.

U.A.P. CANDIDATE.

Mr. Archie Michaelis Chosen.  

A convention representative of the National Federation, the Australian Womens National League, the Young     Nationalist Organisation, and the All for Australia League was held in the St Kilda     Town Hall last night to choose a candidate favourable to the interests concerned to   contest the St. Kilda seat in the Legislative     Assembly at the next State election. By a large majority it was decided to invite Mr.   Archie Michaelis to stand as the United     Australia party candidate in opposition to Mr. Burnett Gray, the sitting member.   Mr. Michaelis accepted the invitation. Be-     side Mr. Michaelis there were three pros- pective candidates:—Councillor R. H. Mor-  

ley Councillor T. Unsworth, and Councillor     G. H. Robinson.    

Mr. Michaelis, who is aged 41 years, is a director of the firm of Michaelis, Hallen-   stein and Co. Pty. Ltd. He was in Eng-     land when the war broke out, and immedi-      

ately enlisted in the British Army, serving   throughout the war in an artillery unit, in       which he won a commission. His family has lived in St. Kilda for three generations. Mr. Michaelis is a leading member of the   Young Nationalist Organisation and a vice-   president and one of the founders of the West Caulfield branch of the National   Federation. He was educated at Wesley     College, Melbourne, and at Harrow School, England.
