CANBERRA SCHOOLS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925

Kaye, of Springbank, to col- lect some interesting historical data con- cerning the schools which have been oper- ative in Canberra since the district was first settled. Apart from Mr. Kaye's re- miniscences, I am indebted to the author of the now well-known book "Canberra's First Hundred Years," by Mr. F.W. Robin- son, Ph.D., M.A., Lecturer at the Univer- sity of Brisbane, and formerly Professor of Modern Languages at the Royal Military College, Duntroon, who devoted much of his leisure to the construction of the fas- cinating story he has written. To Mr. Andrew Witherspoon fell the honour of functioning as the first school- master in this area. It is now ll years since he commenced his labours in the white stone building now occupied by Mr. O'Brien adjacent to the Anglican Church of St. Joh...

CORRESPONDENCE COMMUNITY EFFORT. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925

CORRESPONDENCE -. COMMUNITY EFFORT. (To the Editor.) Sir,-It is remarkable that those who have accomplished least in the cause they espouse, set themselves up as accredited critics of others who have accomplished something and who are endeavouring to make life brighter and happier for their fellow beings. This is the attitude taken up by some members of the Australian Workers' Union with reference to Community effort by re- sidents of this Territory in providing amusement halls, etc., for the people. These self-appointed critics, who, by the way, have been paid for the services they have rendered to the Labour cause, and who would be still paid servants of the Union, only for the fact that they lost the confidence of the members, have the ef- frontery to say the Community effort on a fifty-fifty basis is contrary to the prin- ciples of Labour. I challenge those men to produce one plank of the Labour plat- form, or one rule of the A.W.Ü., that pro- hibits it. On the contrary the Labo...

STORAGE BATTERIES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925

STORAGE BATTERIES _._.A_ -w By W.M.L. Storage batteries or accumulators are so largely used by motorists and wireless en- thusiasts that a few words on their opera- tion and maintenance may be of interest to readers. The usual form of battery consists of a number of ceils, in each of which are suspended two sets of plates. The cell is filled with a dilute solution of sulphuric acid, known as the electrolyte. The chemical action which takes place when the cell is in operation is fairly com- plicated but in the main the action is as follows: Charged condition -j- plate electrolyte Pb02 -I- H2S04 - Lead Sulphuric Peroxide Acid plate Pb Charging Discharged condition. - plate - plate -j- Electrical Energy PbS04-|-2H20 -|-PbS04 Lead Lead -|- Water -|- L&ad Sulphate Sulphate Discharging--> The action takes place in the direction of the arrows, and it can be seen that when the cell is fully charged the positive plate consists of lead peroxide (Pk*^) and the negative plate of meta...

THE HISTORY OF THE GUIDE MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925

?* ' ')."" . - .? THE HISTORY OF THE GUIDE MOVEMENT. ... é Long ago in the Palaeolithic period of the Guide History, little groups of girls iu quaint clothes of many colours might have been seen marching along with hav- ersacks, water bottles and broomsticks. Their dress was quaint, their manner wild, but their backs were straight, and a, look in their faces of fixed determination: someone was calling iii a way that no ono had ever called before. The Pied Piper had piped, and the boys had dropped their books and toys, and followed him out into the woods, and the girls were following, too. "Go home," said the grown-ups. "it is not for you." "Go back," said the boys, "this is our game, not yours.*' "Go away," said the Piper, "I am piping to the boys." But the girls had caught the strains ot' the music, and they had to follow. All that they had read in their story books all that they had dreamed in their dreams, was happening before them; their own brothers were turning into frontiersm...

CHRISTMAS AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925

CHRISTMAS) AT CANBERRA. -é By C.E.P. Christmas comes to Canberra as to other cities, though one might imagine, from the excited exodus of so many of its citizens, that the Christmas atmosphere can only be captured in far distant capitals. Yet when Christmas dawns, the children of Canberra will find that the merry old gen- tleman-and he is quite the oldest old gentleman that we know-will be along; his white beard perhaps a trifle whiter than of yore, his scarlet cloak possibly a shade less scarlet than it was (though he always dips it in the colours of the rising sun before he starts), his twinklig eyes an eyelash less bright perhaps, yet still a brisk and bonny old figure, whose advent marks the start of Christmastide's merry adventures. He is sure to drive down in his slender-looking sleigh, strong enough, however, to carry enough presents for us ail, his reindeer racers straining to get over the ground-I should say to glide through the air-in full time for the de- livery of the de...

CORRESPONDENCE -. ORGANISED SUNDAY SPORT. The Chairman of the Commission for- wards a copy of a letter he has addressed to the Indoor Recreation Committee in reply to correspondence from the latter upon this subject: Federal Capital Commission. Mr. C. E. Pike, Acting Secretary, Indoor Recreation Committee, Canberra. Dear Sir,--Your letter of yesterday's date addressed to the Secretary of the Commission under the heading "Prohibi- tion of Sunday Sport" has been placed be- fore me, from which I notice that your committee passed a resolution at its last meeting to the following effect: "That this meeting protests against the attitude adopted by the Commission with regard to Sunday sport as it seri- ously hampers the^ activities of this Committee and militates against the objects and principles of the welfare movement." indicating also that Mr. Irons, your Com- mittee's Secretary, has resigned as a per- sonal protest. I am quite certain that your Committee is under a misapprehension abo...

EDUCATIONAL NOTES PARENTS' & CITIZENS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925

EDUCATIONAL NOTES - PARENTS' & CITIZENS' ASSOCIATION. It can never be said that the monthly meetings of the Association are as dull aa the average sectional gathering of any community is alleged to be. The last meeting held at the School on Wednesday, 4th November, provided, much interest and some entertainment to members. In the absence of the President, Mr. H. M. Rollland (on duty in Melbourne), Mr. C. Francis (vice-president) took the chair. Quotations were received for various makes of sewing machines and it was finally decided to purchase a Singer, the Secretary reporting that he had been abie to secure a discóunt owing to the public purpose for which the machine is intended. Mr. Maxwell (a Causeway member) who, with his wife, has displayed much interest in the affairs of the Association since he became a member, intimated that he hoped to be able to secure an additional machine from another source, gratis. If Mr. Max- well's hope is realised it follows that the school ...

By "Sister." It is odd how very much we take our daily life for granted-perhaps I should say, rather that we take for granted the mechanism within us which makes possible our daily life. We expect to sleep as a matter of course; we expect to feel well no matter how we treat or ill-treat our bodies; we regard our teeth as given us to do their job come what may. It doesn't occur to most of us that no machinery on earth, not even if it is made of cast iron or of steel, can give satisfaction, or even keep going, unless it is examined, oiled, greased, or repaired at regular intervals. And so with the much more delicately balanced human machine. We must see to it that we form good habits in our chil- dren, and that we look to our own ma- chi...

CANBERRA TENNIS ASSOCIATION "GORMAN CUP." [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925

fimrniommmMniniiHHtiHHnnunmitnHmMnn flinns CANBERRA TENNIS ASSOCIATION -* "GORMAN CUP." By "Practice." As was anticipated, there is no dearth of aspirants for the title of "Holders." OD Saturday, 14th November, Eastlake, the original holders, endeavoured to retrieve their loss to Northbourne from Canberra, who had secured possession from the Nor- therners. The challenge, however, re- sulted in retention by the latter club by a margin of six sets. Weather conditions were ideal. In this description I have confined my attention to a stroke analysis for three rubbers. The criticism is hon- est and based upon impressions confirmed by statistics available for inspection. Dunne and Murden v. Newman and Toms, 6-1, 5-6. Services: Name Won Lost Toms .... 2 3 Murden .... 3 1 Newman .... 2 2 Dunn. 2 2 Criticism.-Toms was slow to start, winning with Newman but one point in his first three services.

FLOWER SHOW AT CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925

FLOWER SHOW AT CANBERRA -» n The first flower show held by the Can- berra Horticultural Society, on Saturday afternoon, 21st November, was successful beyond the hopes of even the most san- guine of the committee. The heavy rains just prior to the show had a devastat- ing effect on many roses and blooms which were being jealously watched and nur . tured by growers for exhibition pur- poses. Nevertheless there was a fine display of flowers. The exhibits generally were of a high standard, and the non competitve exhibit staged by the Superin- tendent of Parks and Gardens was a sight which should not have been missed by those to whom 'flowers are living beauty, each with its own individuality and mes- sage. A spring-like day of bright sunshine and gentle breezes contributed to the success of the afternoon. The attendance was good, and included residents from distant portions of the Territory and Queanbeyan. The Society, which has been so happily launched, includes among its membership ga...
