AFFORESTATION [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

AFFORESTATION By D. B. O'CONNOR VIEW CANBERRA BEFORE BUILDING -Photo by V. H. lioinml. Re-áfforesation is now considered a .problem of the first magnitude in prac tically every country in the South Pacific. Not only have the timber companies in all accessible places taken the pick of the trees, destroying all elie in their trail, but for the requirements of mining and road making millions of feet of the most precious wood have been cut down, while for the purpose of securing land for grazing, thousands of acres of trees have been ringbarked or burned. In many districts ruthless destruction has gone on without any counterbalancing attempt at replacement. As we are nov/ con fronted with the question of an almost certain world shortage of timber it is befitting that the Federal area should give Australia a lead in the important work of replanting. Thc Commonwealth Government is fortunate in having placed this matter in thc hands of such a com petent, practical and enthusiastic ex pert ...

Education Within the Federal Territory [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

Education Within the Federal Territory By C. L. HENRY When the Federal Government took over from New South Wales the present Federal Territory it had perforce, to in terest itself in the vital problem of edu cation within the confines of the newly ac quired area. This has meant keeping a kindly and paternal eye over some eighteen schools which are scattered here and there in the Territory. In accordance with the terms of Feder ation, New South Wales provides the teachers for all these schools, supplies them with equipment and accepts the re sponsibility for the curriculum. Thc Federal Government's share of the bargain is to see that suitable buildings are provided and maintained. The majority of these schools are on a small scale, with attendances from twenty to fifty or sixty, but nevertheless, the population in these parts i<j yo scanty that the educational facilities provided are ample for the present needs. It seems, moreover, quite likely that in the case of these sc...

SUNDAY SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

SUNDAY SPORT. I ara glad that the powers that be are taking steps to stop this insidious evil from getting hold of our life. If what .1 hear is true, thu edict has gone forth, "All organised Sunday sport must cease." Halleluiah. Herc is our opportunity to become "an abject lesson to the rest of Australia and even to thc whole world." Not only cricket, but other games played on Sunday should be rigorously suppressed, as they all tend to take u¿ along the broad path to that place from whose burn no travellers return. Only last Sunday, at Eastlake, I cume upon some children playing hide and seek and laughing; laughing while the (ires of hell are yawning for all Sabbalh brcakers. At the Cotter I am told those two games invented by the devil, "Kiss in the Ring and Twos and Threes, are re gularly played by picnicers. . Here is work for us. Lot us get our umbrellas and attack the devil in our midst. If only the editor of our welfare paper could be persuaded to run the Old Testa ment in ser...

A GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE TERRITORY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

A GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE TERRITORY Along the north east boundary of the Pedcral Territory there is a well defined range of mountains forming portion of tho Molonglo watershed. The southern portion of the eastern boundary is very steep and rocky, and the range here throws oiF into the Territory the Nass, Left Hand Creek, Gudgenby and other .streams which finally pour into thc Mur rumbidgee. A peculiarity of many of these tributaries is that they flow into thc main river upstream, thus, particu larly in flood time, maki>"¿ the meeting of the waters a turbulent maelstrom .The western and south-western boundary fol lows a rugged mountain ridge with a succession of conical peaks. From north to south the chief of these arc Toree .(4057ft.), Bulls Head (4481ft.), Frank Jin (5400ft.) Gingera (6000ft.), Bimberi (6262 ft.), McMurray (G040 ft.), Scabby (5900ft.), Kelly (6000ft.) and Gudgenby (5694ft.). The Cotter River rises in the neighbourhood of Mt.

THE SOCIAL SCALE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

THE SOCIAL SCALE. Will Canberra some day be known aá the city of snobs? At the present the signs are here. First we have the "guests" at the Hotel Canberra, then the denizens of Acton and so on through Blanfordia, Eastlake, Westlake, the Hotel Ainslie, down to thc Causeway and Mo longlo and thc tradesmen's messes, until we finally reach the labourers' camps afc Eastlake and Civic Centre, and the home of the lost and outcast No. 1. Most of this feeling is caused through the different communities being widely separated, and through there being no common meeting ground (such as amuse ment halls, lectures, etc.), where different communities could mingle and exchange ideas. Some of this snobbishness, how ever, is fostered. Take the Hotel Ains lie, for instance. At this hotel members of the staiT are accommodated at a con siderably lower figure than anyone else, skilled artisans are not welcomed, and as for the labourer, "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.*' But t...

SOME RISE IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

SOME RISE IN THE WORLD. One good point about jobs of this typo is the opportunity that a man has to use whatever ability he possesses. One day he may be labouring, next week working in the office. A foreman noticed a chap one day in white overalls with a paint brush in his hand, "Herc," he said, "wasn't you a navvy here a few weeks ago?" "That's nothing," was thc reply. "Billy Hughes used to mend umbrellas."

Crub Time A NAVVY RHYMSTER READS "CANBERRA." AN OLD EXCUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

A NAVVY RHYMSTER READS "CANBERRA." AN OLD EXCUSE. ". . . .A new chum named Ainslie, an ex-officer in the Scots Greys, who had come through the battle of Waterloo with much honor to himself .... in a charge on the French cavalry he outrode his companions, seeing which several of the French turned, and after a tierce strug gle, left him for dead with a severe sabre wound in his head .... his wound ever after caused him much irritability and excitement, especially if he took spirits."-From "Canberra," hy W.

SPORTING THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

.BLANDFORDIA v. ACTON AT BLANDFORDIA. SPORTING THE TÜKF. By "WINLARK." . . As, no doubt, some day a Canberra Cup will be run that not only will be of interest to the area, but to the whole of the horse-following public of Australia, the following results of the first two meetings held in the Federal City will be of interest, as will also be the names of the first officials. One can visualize the grey beard saying to his son as Australia's best horse flesh parade before the start of the Canberra Gold Cup of 19? "They're not a bad lot, son, but you oughter seen Plain Bill and Jack Stitch in '25." Anl so that those days won't be lost altogether, here they are for the memory crank, who will arise and quote Cup winner after Cup winner, and also for the lover of a good horse, a fair race and a modest bet.
