BOWLS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1927

BOWLS (By "Jack. ') The rapid progress of the Canberra Howling Club has been maintained during the month. A number of new members have been enrolled and the membership has now reached the sat isfactory number of 46. Much interest is being displayed in the activities of the Club not only by residents of the Territory but also by bowlers and others in the neighbouring States. The inter-club games already reported have been followed by a visit from the Yass Club on 12th February. The visiting team comprised three rinks, and under most favourable weather conditions spent an enjoyable afternoon on the green. The Canberra Club entertained the visitors at afternoon tea and sub sequently at dinner at Hotel Canberra. The President of the Canberra Club, Mr. C. Francis, in the course of a happy speech, tendered a true bowling welcome to the visitors, and expressed the hope that teams representing the two clubs would meet on many future occasions. Mr. C. Foran, Acting Pre sident of the Yass Clu...

BACHELORS' BUTTONS (Devoted to the Interests of Residents of the Bachelors' Quarters.) Another robbery! Garbed like the Klu Klux Klansmen, Sydney 'Arbor, Jupp, Ted Hall, George O'Neill, and Monty Waddell robbed the hives at the Quarters the other Saturday, 4> Net results-some honey flavored wjth bee's knees, six stings, four for Monty and one for Sydney. Bill Bell came too close to the scene of opera tions and collected one or two. Ted Hall and George O'Neill retired early from the conflict. Who says that Easy Street have bees in their bon nets? Honey-strained through George's pillow case-at Sale Price may now be obtained on application. Owing to dif ficulty in pouring lt into empty D.A.'s you are requested to bring your own jars.

HOTEL AINSLIE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1927

*." HOTEL AINSLIE The newly-formed house committee has been busy. Anticipating inspection by the Duke and Duchess, the physical culture class, under the splendid lead ership of Miss Green, is doing great things. These Amazons should be the terror of the territory, and would make a fitting bodyguard for the Duke dur ing his visit. The hotel takes great credit to itself for the champion tennis players com ing to the fore. These timid fledglings may be seen fluttering their wings and racquets somewhere about dawn. The present holders are clutching their laurels with trembling fingers. The Hotel Ainslie proudly claims, while it apparently surreptitiously shel ters, another well-known tennis star. He is believed to be a bachelor. Mr. Rolf has been seen "walking out." Alone.
