Preparations for the forthcoming Harvey Agriculture Show to be held on Wednesday, October 22, are well in hand, and a good number of en- tries have already been received. The Committee of the Society have decided to hold a masquerade ball this month and a strong committee
has been appointed to complete the arrangements for a successful evening. LIGHT HORSE BALL. On Friday night, 22nd August, the local troop of the 10th Light Horse held a very successful ball, which
in spite of the heavy rain which fell that night, was largely attended by the friends and supporters of the regiment. Dancing was carried on until the early hours of the morning. Among the official guests present were Major Sweetapple, the Com- manding Officer of the Regiment, Capt. Palmer, O.C. Squadron, Lieut. F. Young (Bunbury), Lieut. W. L. Owens (Donnybrook), and Lieut Fears (Harvey) ; there were also present several members of the regi- ment from Bunbury and Donny- brook troops. During the evening opportunity was taken to present prizes won by members of the local troop at the last Light Horse Camp. Major Sweetapple in a pleasant vein, congratulated the winners, and thanked those present for the lib- eral support given to the local lads, at the same time pointing out the advantages to the young men of the district to be obtained by joining up with their friends who were al- ready doing their small share, in keping the famous regiment, going, a regiment with a war record second to none. About one hundred and fifty sat down to a delectable supper, and to- gether with the spirited music sup- plied by Haycox Band from Bunbury everybody spent an enjoyable time. SOCCER.
The Harvey Soccer team, which went to Perth to compete in the Country Week, returned defeated but not disgraced, and full of en- thusiasm for the splendid time they enjoyed in the metropolis. The want of systematic training was the cause of their non-success, in meet- ing teams that were no better in the actual playing of the game, but who had the training that enabled them to last out the full time and play at full pressure from start to finish. The local lads were able to hold their own and in most games to lead for the first three quarters of the play and then were unable to prevent their opponents from scoring during the last ten or fif- teen minutes, when most of the
winning points we're scored against the Harvey team, which in every game went down with colours flying. Members of the team were loud in their praises for the arrangements made in the carrying out of the competitions. On the Saturday when the final match as played by teams represen- ting the Country and Metropolitan teams, Mitchell, Williamson, Ather- ton and A. Ochiltree were selected from the Harvey boys and acquitted themselves in their well known style. During the season next year there should be a number of fresh teams formed in the South West, drawn from the Group Settlements and the formation of a South West Soccer Association should be the aim of all soccer enthusiasts. AUSSIE RULES. Under the Australian rules the semi-finals were entered into last Sunday when Yarloop met Morning- ton at Brunswick and after a stir- ring game Yarloop won by 8 points.
