WELFARE ACTIVITY AT   CANBERRA.   Readers will be interested in some account proposals which are under consideration for the improve- ment of the welfare of those who are employed by the Federal Capital Commission in the establishment of the city. The Commission, having obtained the approval of the Minister for Home and Territories to the allo- cation of a substantial amount for the purpose, the Chairman convened, some weeks ago, a meeting in the Action Recreation Hall, to which representatives of all Unions and Employees' Communities were in- vited, and at which, after describing the general disabilities of social life at Canberra, he exhorted the audi- ence to throw their energies into co- operation with the Commission with a view to improving the general con- dition of the industrial community. The Commissioner instanced the amazing and rapid results of the constructive effort of such a nature at other places, notably at Port Pirie in South Australia, an...

Mr. Adams, P.M., made public the following at the Police Court yester day, in the matter,of the appeals of Halloran & Co. from viluations by the Municipality of Queanbeyan . In this matter a number of objections were made by the objector, but, ex cept as to the two hereunder noted, were abandoned. The objections re lied upon were:- (a) That the values assigned are wrong; (b) That blocks which should have been included in one valuation have been separately valued. I will take the second objection (b) first. It was contended by the objector that the case of Patulo v. the Condobolin Shire Councll gov erned the matter. I cannot accede to this.

Four in One. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 20 August 1925

Four in One. Thus the Hon. T. M. Shakespeare, M.L.C.: " Peace hath her victories no less re nowned than War.!': The prompt subscription of the Commonwealth War Conversion Loan, representing, as it does, the liquida tion of four previous War Loans, raised with such popular and patriotic enthusiasm during 1915-17, will rank as a Peace Victory. Every Australian can "do his bit" in helping to achieve this object. Those who, at the sacred call of duty, subscribed the millions required to succour our boys, grimly engaged in the Great War, during those mem orable, never-to-be-forgotten years, will require no urge to convert their holdings-they can be relied on to play their parts as patriots should. Those who invested, as the result of the double security offering, should not be slow in converting 4% stock and bonds, to 5% per cent. stock and bonds (as is now possible), with the added advantage of ensuring that rate of interest for six, eleven, or even six teen, years at their own option. ...

Footballers Fined. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 20 August 1925

Footballers Fined. Os Sunday, 5th July, members of two local football clubs, the Bluebells and Magpies, arranged for a football match in the Queanbeyan Park. They were well aware of the fact that there were a number of objectors to Sunday football in the Park, but the players wanted to test their right to play there on Sundays. Prior to the game commencing, the Sergeant of Police warned them that if they played, police court proceedings would follow, but they heeded not, donned their guernseys, and took the field. The result was they were sum- monsed to attend the police court and answer a charge of having played football to the annoyance of rest dents. At last court one case, that of Michael O'Rourke, was taken as a test. On the evidence of Sergeant Clarke, Revs. Carter and Evans, and Mr. Colin Raff, the P.M. (Mr. Adams) convicted defendant and fined him 2/6, 8/- court costs, in default three days gaol. Twenty-one days was al- lowed to pay, as it was intimated that an appeal would ...

MOTOR SPIRIT AND KEROSENE [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 27 August 1925

MOTOR SPIRIT AND KEROSENE -4-t- The present era has been charac terised as the "Oil Age," and the crst of the two principal fuels, motor spirit and kerosene, is an important factor in the total cost of Australia's produce. These are the fuels on which the farmer must depend for power, and the utilisation of power machinery for farming is the logical solution of the farmer's problem of combating increased costs. An application has been made for the imposition of a duty. of twopence per gallon on motor spirit and kero sene imported into Australia other wise than in bulk. Will this pro posed duty place a further burden on the Man on the Land, "Australia's Backbone"? Will it benefit Australia and the Empire?. These questions are answered in a booklet just to hand which has been published in order *to set out the effect of an extra Customs duty being imposed on kerosene and mo tor spirit imported in cases. "It con eludes: "Reviewing the application from all standpoints, it is difficult t...

PARKING CARS IN SKY-SCRAPERS NOVEL METHOD TO COPE WITH TRAFFIC CONGESTION [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 27 August 1925

PARKINGC CARS IN SKY SCRAPERS NOVEL METHOD TO COPE WITH TRAFFIC CONGESTION Australia hitherto has not been be set by the same acute traffic problems which have vexed authorities in other lands, but to-day the congestion in some of the capitals is becoming so serious that the experts are looking ahead in an endeavour to find ways and means of coping with the trou ble. In Sydney the matter is pro bably more pronounced than else. where because of the narrow streets and it is an open secret that as soon as garage space is available the edict against parking cars in traffic arteries will be enforced. Particu lar interest therefore attaches to the flotation of a company now being formed by a small number of leading business men who are seeking to acquire a large wool store near Cir cular Quay for conversion into a huge garage. Plans have already been drawn to allow of two floors being added to the existing structure which already has eight. The building, when completed, will be fireproof ...

COMMUTATOR CLEANING [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 27 August 1925

COMMUTATOR- CLEANING From time to time the commuta tor of the dynamo on the car needs a little attention if the dynamo is to produce a steady unwavering output of current. This cleaning is of im portance in that it helps to ensure that the battery at all times receives current at a good charging rate. A simple method of procedure is .as follows: Roll a piece of heavy canvas, a few inches in length, in the form of an elongated spiral, so that one end of the material forms as it were a sharp point. The end of the spiral should then be dipped in petrol and applied to the commutator, whilst the engine is cranked either by hand or by the self starter. Do not allow the engine to run while this is being done, as quite possibly a spark at the brushes will ignite the petrol.

FOOTBALL "GATE" QUESTION OF DIVISION CLUBS IN CONFLICT [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 27 August 1925

FOO BALL "GATE" r QUESTION OF DIVISION CLUBS IN CONFLICT a -- a The fact of conflicting applications " by the Waratah and Warrigal Foot. ball Clubs on Saturday next was the means of a special meeting of the t Council on Tuesday night. And though no fire was provided in the fireplace proceedings waxed hot and spark; t flew at very frequent intervals. Several aldermen were under the impression that a minute was on the Council's books giving preference to the War- a "rigals in the use of the Queanbeyan Park in view of the fact of the im provements erected by that Club, to wit the training shed etc. Aid. IH-. Land was of opinion that there was no minute to that effect, and after a cursory inspection of the books by himself and the Town Clerk, stated that no such record could be found. He suggested that the two Clubs be granted permission to use The Park and each receive 50 per cent. of the takings. Aid. l. Taylor also was of the opinion tht the 50.50 idea was the best solution of the di...

COUNCIL'S DECISION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 27 August 1925

COUNCIL'S DECISIO t . Another special meeting of the Municipal Council was held last night to consider matters relating to th'e applications of the Warrigal and Waratah Football Clubs for the use of the Park on Saturday for matches. Aldermen H. Land and McCauley did not attend. There was a good muster of the members of both clubs. At the outset the Mayor suggested that the Waratahs receive 40 per cent. of the gate and the Warrigals 60 per cent. The aldermen were an xious that the clubs should unite and make for stronger support in the future. Ald. Keeffe asked in what manner the business was going to be con ducted, they didn't want to be there all night discussing the matter. If they heard a statement by each side the Council could decide on the merits of the case, and perhaps ar rive at a satisfactory conclusion for both clubs. Ald. Freebody agreed. The Mayor didn't understand the position; the Warrigals had to give Goulburn 50 per cent. of the gate. Mr. Joe O'Rourke (speaking for ...

TENNIS CLUB BALL [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 27 August 1925

TENNIS CLUB BALL The Triumph Theatre was the scene of a merry gathering on Friday night last when the Queanbeyan 'Tennis Club held the annual ball in aid of the Club's funds. Some 90 couples danced to the music supplied by the Triumph Orches tra, and it was the general opinion that the ball was as successful this year as in previous years although the weather was anything but favour. able. The success of the ball was entirely due to the untiring efforts of the lady members of the Club, and they were ably assisted by their friends who kindly donated eatables for the supper and assisted generally. The tables were neatly set out and nicely decorated, and the supper was a credit to the ladies. Mr. Bowers was M.C. and the ball was carried on under his usual thorough supervision. During the evening the committee took the opportunity of presenting the trophies won by the ladies at the recent tournament. Mr. Campbell made the presentations and Miss Moran received a handsome silver cake dish...

Carry On! AN INFORMATIVE BOOKLET [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 27 August 1925

Carry On! AN INFORMATIVE BOOKLET At the last great World's Press Convention, which was attended by many University Professors as well as journalists from all parts of the world, the comparatively newly-coined word '" propaganda" came in for a long and interesting discussion. Prominent Press men defined it as a medium of special education on any particular topic, but one well-known University Professor of Psyehology objected that "propaganda" was de signed purely to "educate" the public mind along the particular lines desired by the person who issued the props. ganda matter, regardless of ethical considerations., The Secretary to the Commonwealth Treasury (J. it. Collins, C.M.G., C.B.E ), who is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Common wealth' Bank, has just issued a War Loan "propaganda" Booklet called "Carry On," which fulfils the defini tion of the Press men, and at the same time could not possibly offend the susceptibilities of the Professors men. tioned above, becau...

DELAY IS DANGEROUS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 27 August 1925

DELAY IS DANGEROUS. We all remember the pretty story of the little hero who saved his na tive village in Holland by stopping with his hand, throughout the whole of a dark and tumultuous night, the gentle trickle of the sea through a leak in the dyke. Had he.-not done so, the- wild sea must surely have worn its way through the dyke and flooded the village. Similar danger threatens us here. Hundreds of backs are aching, yet people are ne glecting this warning, and it's so easy to check kidney disease if taken in time; but don't neglect the first warnings. Read how the dan ger can be averted: Mr. W. A. Parker, Monaro Street, Queanbeyan, says: . "I obtained a bottle. of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and this medicine proved the very thing I needed for pains in the small of the back. I had -suffered terribly with backache and could not get-anything to relieve the pain. However, -I have been, quite tree of this trying ailment ever since I used Doan's Backache Kidney Pills.

(Published by 'rrangement.) FLASKS AND THE BOY The Hon. W. G. E. Brownlow, who has been studying social conditions in the United States, writes his im pressions in the London "Evening News." "There are," he says, "tragedy and humour alike in the way in which Prohibition is working in the United States. As a total abstainer (from personal preference rather than on'principle) I viewed the sit uation, I think, without prejudice. "For instance, because of the old truth that what a boy is forbidden to have he wants and will have-it is quite the 'smart thing' for the youn ger generation in America to carry flasks about, often containing thor oughly bad liquor. THIS IS FRE QUENTLY TRUE OF YOUTHS WHO, WERE DRINK NOT FORBID DEN, WOULD NOT EVEN DESIRE IT. "Prohibition, too, has dreadfully increased crime-which is not sur prising, for if people who ought to know better flagarantly break one law, why should those who 'know less and look to them for an example not break others?"
