Healesville Social Chatter ---C- (Conducted by "Arllne," who Invites readers to communicate with her on matters of local interest.) I am sure we are all looking for ward to attending the card party In St. John's Hall next Monday after noon (February 21), to aid the local Girl Guides' Association. I know for a fact that this will be one of the most pleasing social afternoons held in Healesville for some timer-the best so far in the new year, assured ly. Besides bridge, euchre will also be made. And, oh, by the way, I must' not forget to add that friends will be doing a good service and helping a deserving cause by donat ing Jam, which will be 'sent to the headquarters' Jam market and the proceeds devoted to the Guide House funds. Most of us have lots of spare pots of Jam in our pantries, and here is a chance to dispose of them to good advantage. Monday afternoon, then, at St, John's Hall. Oh, yes, of course we are all won dering who the luscious looking girl was who turned out to the fire the otherl night, clad in bathing togsl Everybody must have noticed her and some more than many, If novel ty and daring count for anything, here is a miss who should go far. It was a pretty nippy night, too, and a fine dew fell. Turning out to a mid night blaze in bathing togs-and no thing else but high-heeled shoesi Did you ever hear the like?
I find Mr. Charles Stanley waxing enthusiastic over a new game called "Trugo," which, by all acounts, is making fair to become quite the rage at Healesville. In its manipulation this new form of outdoor exercise is said to be "like croquet, only differ- ent." There are mallets, I believe, with which you endeavor to drive some special sort of balls or discs through goal posts. Mr. Stanley tells me that the "game, located within the demesne of one of Healesville's popu- lar playing fields, is "taking on liked wildfire," and that people of all ages are joining in the fun. On Wednes- day afternoon quite a crowd of "Tru- go" addicts and others interested at- tended a pleasant and quite ceremo- ious inauguration of the art, and I am told that visitors as well as locals tried their skill. Of course the "world famous tourist resort" can never have too many attractions, or too many ways and means of providing enter- tainment, and now that "Trugo" has been added to the list one can't be blamed for wondering "What's next?" The Healeaville Horsemtens Clui held its third annual hay picnic at Queenscliff last Sunday. A large crowd left IIealesville by cars tnd joined the Weeroona at Port alel. bourne. By special arrangement, the Caulfleld Boys' Band of tO players was engaged, and their items kept the party keyed tip throughout the voy. age. The picnickers were a little un. lucky in having adverse weather, but tihe novelty of travelling by steamer and the change from mountain air and scenery more than offset the weather conditions, Before arrival at Queensoliff a hamper lunch (was en joyed. During the afternoon frivoll ties were indulged in in tile Queens cliff Park, and a party left by special 'bus for a trip to Point Lonsdale On arrival they were received by tie of. ricer In charge of the main lighthouse and talen on a tour of Inspection It was with regret that the party, num bering nearly 100, left for home. The roar o4,the ocean as the rollers swept through the Rip, crashing upon the high and rugged cliffs near by. was novel and enjoyable, The passing and viewing of big steamers and warship3 'added to the interesting features. O arrival at Port Melbourne at dusk th lights of Melbourne and the bayside resembled a fairy land of twinkllng colored stars. The car trip to Hleales ville was made In bright moonlight and the happy band arrived home safely after a great day's outing.
