PARENTS AND CITIZENS' ASSOCIATION [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

PARENTS AND CITIZENS' ASSOCIATION - This Association is one that merits the support of all lovers of children—parents and citizens alike—whose aim is to pro- mote the welfare of the Community. It forms a direct and useful link between parents and teachers and incalculable benefit results from the interchange of ideas and blending of interests of both. Realising the possibilities of this type of Association, the Headmaster of Telopea Park School towards the end of 1923 in- vited those interested to an informal dis- cussion. The Telopea Park Parents and Citizens' Association was created as a re-   sult of that meeting. It has met regularly   month after month, sometimes when the icy blasts from the snow-clad hills have tempted members to remain by their fire- sides. Its industry has been rewarded by the accomplishment of its three main functions : - (1) to enable frequent and regular contact between teachers and par- ents; (2) to create and maintain a deep an...

THINGS WE HAVE NOTICED [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

THINGS WE HAVE NOTICED - News is scarce in Blandfordia. So are woodcarters. There is only one of the species operating at present, and according to reports from the East End, he is on night duty. However, one early bird will catch the worm—if the petrol tin alarm comes up to expectations. Canberra now has three policemen. No wonder Melbourne is jealous of the place. If the Brass Band proposes to play out- side the shopping centre at Manuka we would suggest as one of its items the old bathroom ballad, "If those lips could only speak." It is extremely popular in Bland- fordia at present, possibly because of the chorus, "It's only a beautiful picture, in a beautiful golden frame." Daniel O'Connell, an Irishman, be- queathed his body to Ireland and his heart to Rome. Evidently "his spirit lives on in the men of to-day," inspiring Acton's Kanga, while fighting for the Federals, to bequeath his activity to spudiculture at Yackandandah—and half his face to the Queanbeyan Show grounds. A da...

DRAMA AT CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

DRAMA AT CANBERRA   -   Although the cinema forms a substan-   tial proportion of the indoor recreation of   this generation, and it is the intention of the Indoor Recreation Committee and the Commission to push ahead with the erec- tion of halls for the purpose, it is perhaps safe to say that most of us enjoy the drama, and would welcome the establish- ment of a company with a view to the encouragement of the drama in our midst. Mr. A. J. W. Pate, a member of the Commission's Staff, has submitted details of a scheme which operates in many small towns and rural districts of America with, it is reported, satisfactory results. Community Playing, as it is termed, says Mr. Pate, is staged by players—not often professional actors, nor necessarily mem- bers of amateur theatrical societies, but simply members of the community who, led by someone capable of producing plays, combine to provide entertainment on a scale of payment in proporti...

THE GARDEN CITY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

THE GARDEN CITY - By C.W. If Canberra within the next generation is to achieve the proud distinction of being the premier garden city of the world, we must rest assured that it will not have been secured by the labours of the pro- fessional gardener alone. The fruits of his labour will be chiefly seen from streets and in public parks and gardens, but on the other hand many will absorb impres- sions from the vantage point of footpaths adjoining cottages. Many visitors have during the past year remarked upon the splendid results ob- tained by many householders in the treat- ment of their garden plots, and have com- mented upon the variety of taste displayed in the layout and planting of the gardens. It is remarkable that the deplorable habit of slavishly imitating the garden designs of neighbours noticeable elsewhere appears to have not taken root in the city area. This expression of individuality is gratify- ing. One of the keenest pleasures of gar- dening is the expression of one's ...

FEDERAL CRICKET ASSO- CIATION -   The Federal Cricket Association was in-     iaugurated in 1922 and comprises Ainslie,   Royal Military College Staff Cadets A and   B, Canberra, Duntroon, Eastlake, Hall and Westridge Clubs.

CANBERRA TENNIS ASSOCIATION [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

CANBERRA TENNIS ASSOCIATION -   Reviewed by "Play Pair." The initiation of any reasonable enter- prise deserves the assistance of all who can lend a helping hand, and "Play Fair" gladly contributes in a small way to help establish this paper, which will from time to time keep the public posted with the activities and progress of the various bodies within the Federal Area, besides giving a comprehensive review of progress from the Industrial side. Readers may rest assured that reports under the above heading are authentic in all respects, as the writer has been closely associated with the activities of the Can- berra Tennis Association from its incep- tion. Realising the added stimulus to compe- titive sport, the Eastlake Tennis Club in 1923 recommended their President and Secretary (Messrs. J. Esmond and Wm. M. Findlay, respectively) to circularise all the Tennis Clubs in the Area (Queanbeyan included) with the object of inaugurating competition tennis on similar lines ...

CANBERRA RACING CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

CANBERRA RACING CLUB - In all probability the Canberra Racing Club will open the coming season with a race meeting on Saturday, 7th November, 1925, on the Acton Racecourse, when it is intended to submit a programme, the prize money for which will at least amount to £100, and as Bungendore is holding a meeting on the 31st October attractive entries should result. The Club is registered with the South Coast Association, and races under A.R.C. Rules, as it is found that most of the horses throughout the Southern districts are registered with that body. The Acton race track, measuring only 6 furlongs and 66 feet in circumference, prevents the club registering under A.J.C. Rules, which require the track to be at least 8 furlongs in circumference. It is doubtful if there could be found in New South Wales more attractive sur- roundings for a racecourse and, although the appointments so far are somewhat primitive, the track itself is a favorite with jockeys who appreciate the level go- ing ...

CANBERRA GOLF CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

  CANBERRA GOLF CLUB - There is scarcely a holiday resort in the world to-day that does not provide a golf course for the guests, and attached to the Hotel Canberra is a course in the making and although it received a severe set-back during the last flood there is no doubt that in about six months time these fine links will be ready for the "plus fours," the sartorial type as well as the genuine ar- ticle. In the meantime the Canberra Golf Club possesses a nine hole course on the Acton Sports Ground. This club was started in a small way back in the pioneering days of 1913 on the ground now occupied by the White City Camp and three years ago was transferred to its present position, and what it now lacks in fairways is amply compensated for by its picturesque sur- roundings. These links are maintained in good order by the Commission until such time as the visitors to the Capital are able to play on the main course. The present season was to have been officially opened by ...

FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

FOOTBALL - The Federal Territory Football League, which is endeavouring to establish the Australian game in this district, last month completed its second season, and may be considered, therefore, to have been suc- cessful in its initial efforts. It is ancient history now that the Fed- eral forces, astutely organised by the wise old "Dictator" and capably led by the popular "Slim" Ryan remained at the top of the premiership list throughout the season, and won from Acton, their initial holders, the coveted Cups presented by Colonel Owen and Mr. Carnall, of Dun- troon. At this stage, therefore, little need be said in regard to the teams and their per- formances, except to congratulate not only the premiers, but the defeated teams who "played the game" in many hard-fought battles. It is, indeed, a matter for con- gratulation that, despite the rivalry exist- ing, and the strenuous nature of some of the games, not once were the authorities called upon to penalise any player for unsportsm...

AN ANNUAL MASSACRE. DRONES OF THE BEEHIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

AN ANNUAL MASSACRE. - DRONES OF THE BEEHIVE. Summer witnesses one of the most in teresting phenomena of the beehive—the   annual massacre of the drones. During the season's excellent honey har- vest (writes Peter Wilson in July in the London "Daily News") the drones have been revelling in incessant feasting and endless pillage of the laboriously gathered stores. At about noon you may see them leaving the hive for a short, lazy flight in the warm sunshine. At evening they re- turn to indulge in a debauch of eating along the crowded avenues of the comb. On wet days, when the worker bees offer constant service to their queen— some by moulding the comb, others by sealing the sections, and others by tend- ing the young bees and the maturing em- bryos, the drone still offers no help, but wanders heavily about the hive, apparent- ly incapable of appreciating the meaning of all this activity. From the commencement of their lives, the drones receive special attention from the wo...

THE CURE OF INSOMNIA. NEED OF HAPPY THOUGHTS AT NIGHT TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

THE CURE OF INSOMNIA. NEED OF HAPPY THOUGHTS AT NIGHT TIME. Insomnia, to which many are subject, and of which many more believe they are victims, occupied the entire morning of the section of Neurology and Psychological medicine at the Bath meeting of the Brit- ish Medical Association on July 23. Dr. Robert Hutchinson insisted that the problem fell into two categories, second- ary insomnia, where the trouble could be referred to a definite cause which de- manded immediate relief; and primary in- somnia, where the disturbing element was less easily recognised. In the first class of cases it might be desirable to have re- course to hypnotic drugs, as, for instance, in pneumonia when if sound sleep was given to the patient in the early stages he would have a reserve of sleep to draw upon as the disease ran its course. The problem of treating "primary insomnia" was very much more difficult, for this might be caused by such factors as financial worry, or occur in the cases of students si...

THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

THE POULTRY YARD -   By "Chanticler." The notes which will appear in this   column from time to time will be written   for the guidance of residents of the Fed-   eral Capital Territory who may desire to   keep a few head of poultry for utility pur- poses. It is hoped that the writer's experience in three Australian States of varying cli- matic conditions will be of assistance, and he invites correspondence to this column. As most people in Canberra will have to keep their stock in the "back garden" and at the same time utilise a large portion for vegetable growing, etc., it will be ne- cessary for them to keep the birds in a state of comparative confinement in order that the garden may not be invaded, and therefore my notes this time will refer to a method of poultry keeping which is known as the "semi-intensive system," which I have proved to be quite satisfac- tory. There are one or two essential points which must n...
