HISTORY OF THE GUIDE MOVEMENT (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1926
HISTORY OF THE GUIDE MOVEMENT _* -w (Continued.) Many companies claim to be the first, but Miss Baden-Powell's Own (Pinkney'a Green) was accorded the honour of head- ing the Register. This company consisted of some thirty guides and six lieutenants. The first headquarters consisted of a small room in a very large building. In this chamber the committee met once a week, while the Secretary interviewed callers out in the passage. At all events it was our organisation and we were no longer apeing the boys, and although "Scouting for Boys" was still the hand- book, there was daily anticipation of a book for Guides. On February 25th, 1911, the first com- mittee meeting was held and it was decided to register under the name of Baden powell Girl Guides. In 1912 H.R.H. Princess Louise accept- ed the position of Patroness. The years 1912-1913 showed remarkable progress and properly organised centres sprang up in various parts of the U.K. It was car- ried to U.S.A. and already well organised....

THE MASTER JOY. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1926
TH¿i MASTER JOY. -* We shall not travel by the road we make; As day by day the sound of many feet Is heard upon the stones that now we break, We shall be come to where the cross roads meet. For us the heat by day, the cold by night, The inch-slow progress and the heavy load, And death at last to end the long grim fight With man and beast and stone-for them the road. For them the shade of trees that now we plant, The smooth, safe journey, and the final goal, Yea-birthright in the land of covenant, For us day-labour, travail of the soul. And yet, the road is ours as never theirs: One joy there is on us alone bestowed, Ours is the Master-Joy, O pioneers, We may not travel, but we make the road. FRIEDLANDER.
SUNDAY SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1926
SUNDAY SPORT. -v (ByJ.O'S.) Welfare Committees and Delegates from the various sporting bodies met at the Acton Hall on Thursday, December 10th, at the instance of the Indoor Recreation Committee, to formulate an expression of opinion on the Commission's decision in regard to Sunday sport. The Chairman of the Committee (Mr. D. Kelly) who presided, claimed that as a result of its experience in endeavoring to organise voluntary labour for the Cause- way recreation hall, it had found that many men who had volunteered their assistance, afterwards withdrew because of the Sunday sport restrictions. As the Committee wa« anxious to "clear the air" and to make any necessary protest in a constitutional man- ner, it had decided, in the interests of the movement, to test the feeling of that por- tion of the community most affected by the restrictions. A letter (as published in our last issue) from the Chairman of the Commission was then read, the ensuing discussion reveal- ing a unanimous desire...

CANBERRA SWIMMING AND LIFESAVING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1926
CANBERRA SWIMMING AND LIFE- SAVING CLUB. --# The formation and organisation of the Club is approaching completion, thanks to the support of the Commissioner, who ha« approved the Club's objects and pro- gramme. Two pools are available on the Molonglo River close to the Acton offices, one for non-swimmers and beginners, and the other for the more experienced swimmers. Owing to the intervention of the Xmas holidays and the engagement of many members in activities always associated with that season, the erection of diving boards, dressing sheds, etc., has been held over until this month. The Club will then commence work in earnest, and, after the opening carnival, a programme of instruc- tion for non-swimmers will be announced. The membership fee is 5/- for gentle- men and 2/6 for ladies, while children under the age of sixteen years are admitted to membership free. Any desiring further information are invited to apply to the hon. secretary, Mr. Jamea Webb, Hotel Ainslie, or any of the...

AN INVESTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1926
I AN INVESTMENT i -* 1 ' " ~w I While moderation in all things may Ibe a sound principle, and one may have too much of a good thing, it has come home to us lately that if those of us with ample leisure, care to do so, there is !ample scope in Canberra in which to discover any latent aptitude we may have for social service, particularly among the , youngsters, without violence to that prin Í cipie. j These are not, of course, the days of Dickens' Scrooge and it is a happy fact that none at Canberra need starve, but there is broad territory for exploitation by those disposed between those extreme factors in social relationships, and to place the matter in its lowest aspect, the yield in human interest and the upwell- ing of enthusiasm, which will surely fol- low a plunge into such activity will amply repay the investment of time and energy. But we would urge readers to consider the proposition from another angle. Not so long ago many of us shared the inter- est and pleasure of a day i...

THE CAUSEWAY HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1926
THE CAUSEWAY HALL. -. This hall is now almost built, to the permanent discomfiture of those pessi- mists who cannot see any sunshine even in the sun. We admit freely, however, that the tackling of such a big job so early in the history of the community movement, and before things had got into their swing, was an outburst of optimism on the part of the organisers which was either sheer folly or high class heroism, according to the point of view. Anyway, while it was risky, it proved the power that is in the idea, and the event showed that hope is always the best guarantee of success. By dawn on the eventful day, Cause- way was ready for the fray, and after an early and hurried breakfast, an ad- vance squad started to clear the site for the foundations, so that when the main body of workers arrived, much had been done, and by eight o'clock all was ready for driving the father of a long line of nails. This was done by the Commissioner, as our photograph shows. ' Work was then re- sumed...
EXECUTIVE SPORTS COUNCIL. SUGGESTED FORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1926
EXECUTIVE SPORTS COUNCIL. -f SUGGESTED FORMATION. At the conclusion of the meeting of dele- gates from the various Sports Associations, which was convened for the purpose of discussing the question of organised Sun- day sport, Mr. J. H. Honeysett, Social Ser- vice Officer, suggested to the various sports representatives the advisability of forming an Executive Sports Council to govern sport generally in the Territory. Mr. Honeysett pointed out that such councils were firmly established in all the States of the Commonwealth, and much benefit was derived from co-ordination be- tween various sporting bodies. This is an important question which should merit consideration by the Recre- ation Committees and Sports Associations after the Christmas Holidays. In the meantime, it is understood that the Constitution and Rules governing the various State Sports Councils will be ob tained, so that the fullest information on the subject will be available for the con- sideration by the proposed me...
CHRISTMAS AT THE HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1926
CHRISTMAS AT THE HOSPITAL. -» A kindly and timely idea germinated in -, the minds of some members of the Bach- elors' Quarters Mess, and as a result a subscription list was sent round with the object of collecting funds for the purchase * of cigarettes, comforts, games, etc., for the inmates of Canberra Hospital. A sum of £8/6/- was netted and was carefully and wisely expended with charitably dis- posed firms in Queanbeyan, who were good enough to reduce prices in view of the destination of the goods. Messrs. Keating, MacNamara and Ho neysett visited the hospital and with the valuable assistance of Miss Lawlor and her staff made the presentation oftSe various" gifts, and we understand, and easily be- lieve, that their unexpected advent radi- ated a Christmas spirit of goodwill and happiness throughout the hospital. The Indoor Recreation Committee con- sider that the thanks of the community are due to these gentlemen and to the subscribers to the fund, and hope that this thoughtful a...

THE BAND [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1926
THE BAND -* (By H. Howe. Organising Secretary.) Since tlie last report in "The Canberra Community News," the Band has been busy. On 28th November they made their first appearance in public at the Causeway Hall site. The following Sunday they headed a big Friendly Societies Memorial procession and service at Ainslie.

We are accumulating a library of the best and most suitable music and anticipate being ...
FIRE BRIGADE TABLE TENNIS CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1926
FIRE BRIGADE TABLE TENNIS CLUB. -i-*-, - - -- w ? ' The Canberra Fire Brigade is anxious to learn of any Table Tennis Clubs in Can- berra. Are there any?, and if not, why not? As most of know, the game is whole- some and a most enjoyable pastime, and the Brigade players offer the suggestion that a Table Tennis Association be estab- lished to organise and popularise this form of indoor recreation for the winter nights, as this game would enable our citizens to spend many a happy evening. Anyhow, what do you think of it, Mr. Editor? In the meantime, if there are any other clubs, Mr. Moloney, hon. secretary o* the above club, would be glad to hear from _
