MEETING THE DUKE—IN OTHER DAYS CHAPTER J.—THE FAMILY THEE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1927

MEETING THE DUKE-IN OTHER DAYS CHAPTER J.--THE FAMILY THEE {By "Navcy") The fïivst time I met the young Duke was in Mecca, where he was travelling incognito-incog, for short. I was travelling in mosq., not for long either, because one of the special police on duty at the time found I had not bared my soles, nor was I one of the noble four hundred whose but to make reply and admission would be granted unto them. The next time 1 met him was at the funeral of the old Duke, who had been foully murdered. What again he saw in me to attract him I know not. This I know-when he came to Canberra, the Red army spatted and unspatted, did not give me much of an opportun ity to renew by acquaintances with him. But, be that as it may, I shall cherish until the end of this reminis cence, very pleasant recollections of my association with him on the third oc casion of our meeting which took place in Dedoguili, whither he had gone to dedicate and open, or open and dedi cate, I forget which, the new S...

THE ROYAL VISIT. SOME IMPRESSIONS. (The Editor, Community News). [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1927

THE ROYAL VISIT. SOME IMPRESSIONS. (Tlic Editor, Community News). Dear Editor.-As a member of the Press, it was my good fortune to get in close touch with both their Royal High nesses and 1 found them both charm ing. The smile with which the Duchess greeted me will linger long in my memory. Being desirous of recording my impressions from the point of view of "One of the Public." I took my piace with the procession, and I feel sure that it was marked respect for our Royal visitors that caused the cheering to be A DISTINGUISHED VISITOR'S LUGGAGE AT CANBERRA RAILWAY ! _STATION._ I rendered in a minor key, and it speaks volumes for the orderly conduct of the residents and visitors to Canberra that the services of the police were not called into action to prevent crowding. 1 believe I was the only one of all that vast assemblage who threw any thing at the Duke, my contribution in that respect taking the form of a "bokay" from our own garden. I caught the Duke's eye as 1 threw the flowers...

AINSLIE SWIMMING POOL. (The Editor "Community News") [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1927

AINSLIE SWIMMING POOL. (The Editor "Community News") Sir,-As the originator of the idea for swimming baths at Ainslie, I am pleased to see the idea being taken up so en thusiastically by your paper. Still I suppose we will have to get along with out any of the appurtenances of Par liament House, or even the dome from Mt. Stromlo. However, I will make the following suggestions and offer: - If the Commission will provide and enclose a site and do the excavating, I will build concrete baths, 50 yards long and 20 yards wids, and from five to ten feet deep, for £850. I consider that tho flow from a 3 inch pipe would keep the water whole some, and if it were desired to have hot baths also, I would also be prepared to do any extra concreting necessary, and install heater-if same were pro vided-at £5 a cubic yard for concrete, and whatever the extra cost for labor for installation. Yours etc., !.. H. 13. I-AKSBTTER, Russell Hill.

GORMAN HOUSE (LATE HOTEL AINSLIE). THE ROYAL, VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1927

GORMAN HOUSE (LATE HOTEL AINSLIE). THE ROYAL, VISIT, After months of anticipation-like p. rocket it burst in splendour and was gone. Even the impromptu-Pine Avenue which marked the Ainslie's Strong Post for the great occasion has vanished, and late returning motorists find no excuse to linger. Everybody at a loose end seized the Opportunity to have a good time at the Impromptu Ball. What with blue and khaki uniforms, the course of true love became rather complicated during the Royal visit. The distance from Hotel Ainslie to Parliament House was never more fully appreciated than during this time when it had to be walked. Ice carts were only available occasionally. Gorman House, during the Royal weett, innocently allowed themselves to be exploited by the Mothercraft to the extent of £30 expended in souvenir china. (Some-other-craft, by the by, long since souvenlred Hotel Ainslie teaspoons along with the electric iron. Perhaps Mr. Farrow might be abie to supply some hints as to bow to ...

CANBERRA—HISTORY AND LEGENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1927

CANBERRA--HISTORY AND   LEGENDS.   (By John Gale)   There is no living man who is more   qualified to speak on the early history   of Canberra, and what is now known as   the Federal Capital Territory than Mr.   John Gale, of Queanbeyan--the oldest   living journalist in the Empire. When   it is stated that Mr. Gale's reminiscences   of Canberra and surrounding districts   go back to no less than seventy-two   years ago, it can be realised that his   book, "Canberra--History and Legends,"   will occupy a pre-eminent place in the   literature of Australian history. The   greatest fascination about the book lies   in the fact that it conveys the personal   touch of a man who writes of Can-   berra's early days just as he knew   t...

ACTON. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1927

ACTON. The strongpost at -Acton during' the visit of the Duke and Duchess was   notable for its artistic decoration, and the effective greenery and streamer display. The splendid effect was the result of the efforts of the Acton branch, whose members joined heartily in the work of erection. A large num- ber of residents attended to give their Royal Highnesses thc Duke and                     Duchess a hearty cheer as they passed through Acton,and the enthusiam of       the crowd must have beeen very grati-   fying to the Royal visitors.   Tile branch is very grateful to the Commission for the assistance given, and the supply of poles, flags, and bunting, and to the Superintendent of Parks and gardens for the lavish con- tribution of greenery.

Canberra Calls for a Gymnasium [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 July 1927

Canberra Calls for a Qymnasium "To "Woman, beauty and charm, To Man, strength and shill of arm. THE Capital needs a gym. and must have it. The highly trained mind, and the just and gentle spirit can not function unless they are enshrined in a fully developed body, and as physical fitness is the foundation of successful life, the need for thc estab lishment of an efficiently equipped gymnasium is self evident. Our artist has giv^n a comic touch to his conception, but the humour of his sketch will not blur thc truth of thc central idea, which is the para mount necessity of plans being made for the early erection of a building equal in capacity and equipment to the task of fitting the youth of Can berra for the important part it has to play in the high career of the great Commonwealth. The building should be not only ap propriate to its destiny from its gym nastic point of view, but also archi tecturally beautiful, seeing that its function is the creation of physical fitness and beauty...
