Mr. Mark Devaney (aged 64 years), of Wodonga Estate, Wodonga, a retired farmer, was found dead on the
Bonegilla-road, about a mile from Wodonga, on Sunday night. He had evidently been hit by a motor car, as
there was a quantity of broken glass near by, and much blood. The glass is thought to have been from the headlight of a car. There is no evidence to show that the driver of the car stopped. No one notified the police of the accident. Devaney leaves a widow and two daughters.

On this day …….. 30th April 1933

Mrs George Deaton was playing golf at Sydney’s La Perouse course on this day in 1933 with her husband and daughter when she was hit in the left eye by a stray golf ball. Mrs Deaton was wearing. Glasses at the time and a pieces of broken glass lacerated her eyeball. Fortunately, a doctor was also playing golf on the course and gave her first aid, before moving her to the Coast Hospital for treatment. A year earlier the Deaton’s eight year old son, Leonard, was injured in a similar accident at the same course. On that occasion he was not as fortunate as his mother and lost the sight of an eye.
