CANBERRA COMMUNITY LIBRARY SUCCESSFUL ANNUAL RE-UNION The library headquarters at the So cial Service Building, Acton, were in festive mood on the evening of Thurs day, March 31, on the occasion of the first annual re-union of the members of the library council. By means of flags and other tasteful decorations the library premises were entirely trans formed from their usual academic ap pearance, and the excellent supper pro vided by members of the council was greatly appreciated by all. The president of the library, Mr. V. T. McNamara, occupied the chair. Quests of the evening were Messrs. J. McK. Dunn (president) and J. H.

VI.—HELP SHOULD BE AVAILABLE IN ALL CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 April 1927

VL-HELP SHOULD BE AVAILABLE IN ALL CASES. In any scheme of Maternal Welfare there should be provision for skilled assistance in all cases of confinement. Since the subject of illegitimacy has been introduced into discussions in connection with Child Welfare, a note may be made regarding this matter in its relation to the Australian people. In the Year Book for 1925, statistics show that in the year 1924 the total number of "first births after marriage" was 36,840. The first births within 9 months after marriage numbered 11, 161. The "ex-nuptial" births," known popularly as illegitimate, numbered 6,233. Thus of a total of 36,840 births during one year 17,394 of these child ren were conceived outside of wed lock. One may ask, on what civic, moral, religious, or other grounds j should the 11,161 childern, begotten out of wedlock, but born after marriage, and their mothers receive, assistance, and similar assistance be denied to the 6,233 children, begotten and born out of wedlock, and ...

CANBERRA CYCLING CLUB. Head Quarters, 9 Westlake, Canberra, 22nd March, 1927. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 April 1927

CANBERRA CYCLING CLUB. Head Quarters, 9 Westlake, Canberra, 22nd March, 1927. The Editor,-Slr, I wish to inform you that this Club takes a very serious, view of the report which appeared in the last issue of the Community News on the cycle races held by this club at the Highland Gathering, in that we think that a report of this kind has a very serious effect on the prospective members. What we take exception to is this, that the cycling was not up to the standard of the past, and that riders took lt In turns to win« and the win ners won as easily as the losers lost. This is not correct, as the one man won all three races from scratch, and put up a performance second to none; also the track was in anything but good order, and the worst track yet prepared for the Highland Gathering, t am in a position to know, as I have ridden in every cycle race that has been held by the Canberra Burns Club at their gatherings. We would deem it a favor if in your next issue you could put a few words ...

A SOCIAL SERVICE WORKER MR. D. KELLY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 April 1927

A SOCIAL SERVICE WORKER MR» D. KELLY The infancy of the Social Service Movement found Mr. D. Kelly carrying quite a large share of the preliminary responsibilities of organisation. Reins large hearted and long-sighted, he early enrolled himself under the banner or Social Service-his chief sphere of acti vity being the Indoor Recreation Com mittee-and controlled their delibera tions with unfailing urbanity, and un challengeable tact, his energy infusing itself into the mechanism of that com mittee, and stimulating it to attempt the most important and successful soc ial service enterprise that as yet stands to the credit of the movement-the building of the Causeway Hall by vol untary lobour. . How much eloquence and energy Mr. Kelly expended in getting the hall built it is impossible to compute, but it ls certain that he proved that the ton gue is mightier than an armoury of: swords. Having addressed a number of meetings at various centres, he at last created a wave of enthusiasm that...

HOTEL AINSLIE THROUGH THE GLASS DOOR. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 April 1927

HOTEL AINSLIE THROUGH THE GL.ASS DOOR. Gaieties are not confined to the Royal Visit. Small parties have been the vogue. The first was in honor of "Sam." That was quite a happy event. The Ainslie orchestra contributed the seductive musical numbers, and the sandwiches were O.K. The bottled stuff was guaranteed "dry," so there was no infringement of any Commission Ordin ance. Decorations in green and yellow. * * * A little Birthday Party was the next event. The Ainslie Wizard, Mr. Allie Nish, did amazing things with a pack of cards, and received much applause. A strange new dance called the "Lan cers" was demonstrated by four couples in square formation ! Mr. and Mrs. Ritinger received the thanks of the guests. * * * Still another Birthday Party occurred on Monday, 28th March. The feet of Charleston experts twinkled gaily-jazz numbers, as on the previous occasion, were performed by the clever fingers of Mrs. Newman, assisted by Miss Muller's tuneful bow, with a few items from the hollo...

BOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 April 1927

BB^BBBB . ! i . THE BOWLING GREEN AT CANBERRA (PARLIAMENT HOUSE IN THE BACKGROUND). BOWLS. vtíy "Jack.") ""Keep up with the times" appears to he the motto of the bowlers of Can berra. The rapid progress in the development of the future Capital of Australia sems to have inspired the local exponents of the game with un usual enthusiasm and keenness which has been productive of no small degree of skill in the play of the members generally. Early in the season the club ven tured to invite a team from Goulburn to try conclusions at Canberra, but, as was expected, the visitors proved too powerful and won with a margin of 26. Later on a team was invited from Cooma and they too proved more than a match for the locals. On 26th January a team from Canberra visited Goulburn and met with their third successive defeat. These reverses spurred the. Canberra players on to better efforts, and when the Yass Club sent a team on the 12th February, it was not surprising that the local team succeeded in ...

THE RUDE AWAKENING [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 April 1927

THE RUDE AWAKENING A resident of Ainslie, not long mar ried, realised that money does not g*o so far now as it did a few years ago, and determined to grow his own vegetables. He started to dig up the garden, and after half-an-hour's hard work was astonished to find half a crown at his feet. He dug with re newed ardour, and several more coins rewarded his efforts. "Bless me, if this isn't a money mine. There's money all right in these Canberra leases," he exclaimed, digging away for all he was worth. "I wonder what I'll find next?" His arms ached and perspiration trickled down his face. He could stand it no longer. * He straightened his back ut last, and a glistening coin fell at his feet. lu a moment he had grasped the truth. There was a hole in his trousers pocket.

MOLONGLO. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 April 1927

MOLONGLO. Work on the tenements has been held up to a certain extent, due probably to the transfer of seven or eight families from Westridge to Molonglo. How ever, the shifting of much furniture and "other things" points to a resumption of activities this week. A sub-branch of the R.S. and S. League has been formed here, and many new members were enrolled at the first meeting. Several complaints from members were successfully dealt with. A little comment on the bus service. On Friday night (late shopping) a bus leaves Molonglo at 7.10 p.m. for East lake and other places, but does not re turn: thus, if you go shopping to East lake on Friday nights, be prepared to walk home, and carry your "swag." In a previous issue of the "News" reference was made to the contents of a certain business man's cart. The tip has evidently fallen on deaf ears. The cart is still endeavouring to draw the horse. The Molonglo Soccer men are very optimistic about the chances of annex . ing this year's premier...

WHITE CITY CAMP [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 April 1927

WHITE CITY CAMP The returned "Diggers' " social last month was a "bonzer," including strong refreshments, enjoyable yarns, music and singing in platoon formation, the latest from "It Ain't Goin' to Rain No More" to "The Boys are Coming Home." A number of the front line, however, extended the celebrations over the week-end, and gave some exhibition stunts of how positions were won and lost. The number of wounded were insignificant compared to the gain in the way of excitement. Fraternising of the opposing parties during the suc ceeding days brought the camp back to normal. On the 19th a number of camp rac ing celebrities were < surprised to find themselves confronted by a force of His Majesty's servants, who considered this form of Saturday recreation illegal. We all very much regret the incident and regret our well-behaved camp being made conspicuous under such circum stances. The sport may be partially prohibitive, but is undoubtedly uni versal, and is indulged in by all...
