McIvor Council items – A letter was received from the Minister of Transport, advising that the Heathcote Rail Service will cease on 6th November. Cr Ken McLennan said the Railways left a lot to be desired in the very short notice they gave in the closing of the railway line. An extension of time should have been given to users, particulars with orders placed with firms in the city. The decision to close the line was made so suddenly that many people were put to much inconvenience and had to make hurried arrangements to get goods transferred and carried by other means, but it was pointless to make an issue of this matter.
McIvor Council items – Councillors were all in favor of improving the street lighting in Heathcote, which was classed as the worst lit town in the state.

Snakes are supposed to be particularly fond of chickens. Presumably this is why a gentleman of about 4 feet in length scared the very dickens out of "Chicken" Chambers last Friday afternoon. Though why the snake was so anxious to get him we can't guess, for it would have no possible hope of swallowing a big, robust, youth like him. Anyhow "Chicken" was saved from being eaten and taken up on the ceiling to live by the timely arrival of Mr Elsbury, who shot the undesirable one as he was climbing up some creeper. Yes, "Chicken" is over his fright now, but the shock was so great that it caused him to waste away so much that his new soldier suit won't fit him now.
Absolutely the largest crowd in the history of Heathcote gathered in the Shire Hall on Monday evening to accord a public welcome home to the Anzacs.

When the returned men, eighteen in all, marched down the hall and onto the stage they were greeted with prolonged applause and cheers. The returned heroes were: Corporal Barker and Lance Corporal Chapman, J Tanian, B Tranter (Military Medal), S Ward, L A Phillips, Ray Kirby, A Sexton, D Bates, W Wallis, H P Eaton, R D Eaton, P Geary, F J Eichart, M B Nicholson, J Connally, W Indian and T Betts.
