BOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1927
BOWLS. (By "Jack.") Bowlers of Canberra, in common with their fellow citizens, were painfully shocked at the death of the late Mr. C. H. Gorman, who, a few months ago, honoured the Club by accept ing the position of vice-President. We feel that we have lost, not only a good sport, but a dear friend, and we will long cherish the memory of him as one who always played the right "bias" and in ali his endeavours richly deserved to reach the "jack." The green has been well patronised during the month and players have been keen to obtain as much practice as possible for the approach ing club competitions and the return match against Goulburn. On the invitation of the Goulburn Club, five rinks, accompanied by a number of ladies, visited that town on Anniversary Day to play the return match. As formerly, the Goulburn players proved too strong for the Canberra recruits and won with if score of 176 to 87. The green at Goulburn is much faster than the local green and it took some time for the ...
BR-R-R-R. A WHITE CITY LAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1927
BR-R-R-R. A WHITE CITY LAMENT. Say, reader, if you're walking through White City Camp at night, You want to watch vour footsteps, 'cos the dogs up here'll bite. There's one tied to each tent pole, every fence . post, log and stump; You can't go round a corner that a dog won't make you jump. They've squint-eyed cocker spaniels and big airedales, skyes and chows, Blue heelers from the backblocks down to porns (the noisy cows). There're dogs of every colour, every size and breed on earth, But most of all they're mongrels that eat more than they're worth. There must be thousands of 'em, for each bloke has one or more, While down along the horse pug lines they keep 'em by the score. Each night, just after sundown, when all other camps are still, These tripe hounds start their chorus and they go it with a will. They keep it up till morning and a bloke can get no rest, For only when we've gone to work the brutes 'U give it best. But won't there be a scatter when September comes around And ...

OUR LUTTER BAG [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1927
OUR LUTTER BAG (Any replies received in answer to the queries contained in the following* letter will be considered by the Editor for insertion in the next issue. Address replies to "The Editor," "Canberra Community News," Canberra.) The Editor, Dear Sir,-May I ask what is the history of the three old muzzle-loading' cannon at present lying* in the railway yards near the power house? Also where is the final destination of the big German gun at present on the Molonglo siding? Can you give me a history of the tun nel which has been driven into the bluff on the right-hand side of the Murrum bidgee, just below the junction with the Molonglo? At present it is a fine gar den of watercress, but it seems to me that the energy required to drive 200ft. into granite must have been inspired by rich indications on the surface. Yours, etc., THE GLEANER. The Editor, Dear Sir,-Some time ago you ex pressed the intention of publishing from time to time gems of poetry and song. Enclosed you will find ...

CANBERRA PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1927
CANBERRA PHILHAR MONIC SOCIETY The Society has for some weeks past been vigorously rehearsing twice weekly in Causeway Hall on Monday, and Acton Hali on Thursdays. Most excellent progress is being made, the ensembles of the chorus now as suming very encouraging balance and tone, but still requiring a few more contraltos and tenors. The fourth concert is arranged for Thursday, 24th instant, at Causeway Hall, and the programme will include several well chosen part songs, one of which has probably not yet been heard in Australia, being entirely a new song picture by an eminent Eng lish composer. The whole of the performance will be the product of Federal Capital Ter ritory talent. Prominent amongst the instrumental numbers, it is anticipated that the Stromlo quintet will prove a valuable adjunct to the programme. We understand that no new mem bers can be admitted for this concert after the rehearsal on the 14th in stant and that the chorus taking part in the concert on the 24th instant...
