RADIO NEWS RADIO WEDDING OCTOBER BRIDE Broadcasting the Ceremony,, Although there was, some apprehen- sion as to whether the Church would object to the broadcasting of the mar- riage ceremony of the winner of the recent October Bride Competition, no difficulty has been raised, and the cere- mony has been fixed definitely for the afternoon of Saturday, October 23. | About two years ago, a wedding cere-i mony was broadcast from the Palmer Street Presbyterian s Church, Sydney, but when the recent September bride, winner of the Melbourne Stations (3LO) competition,, came to be married, the Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne re- fused to allow the ceremony to be broad- cast. In consequence, the marriage was celebrated by a Methodist Minister, and the broadcast was carried out.

"STAND STRAIGHT" [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 21 October 1926
"STAND STRAIGHT" The University of Boston, Massa- &nbsp; chusetts, has discovered that beauty and intelligence depend on standing up straight, and that a bent back never carries happiness through life (says the London "Daily Express."). Dr. George P. Emerson, head of the de- partment of physical' education in the University, teaches his students how to grow tall, how to be ambitious, how to stop "that irritable feeling," and above all, how to obtain a 100 per cent. efflcient brain. "Be intelligent, and look it. Stand up straight! Be heal- thy. Stand up straight! Make a suc- cess of life.- Stand up straight! " SU - runs such as these, It is claimed,, arc idding Indies to the height of Boston .Undents. No figures are yet available .oncoming beauty or happiness. Hab- illai incorrect posture results in al cations to personal appearance, es- pecially cast of countenance, states Dr. 3inerson."

BAPTIST CHURCH For Canberra Plans Discussed by Union .MELBOURNE, Thursday. Spirited addresses on the subject of the establishment of the Baptist Church at Canberra were made at yes- terday's session of the Baptist Union conference. The Rev. G. P. Reis, secretary of the Baptist Union of Australia, introduced the subject by moving that this assemb- ly endorses the proposal to begin work at Canberra, and promises to support the Baptist Union of Australia in every way, and further that it endorses the proposal that it be a memorial church. The Rev" Principal Holdsworth ^sec onded the motion. * The Rev. D. McNicol said that if they did not act now they had better not act at all. The Baptist should not be behind the other churches by one hour. The Rev. W. B.

The complaint by a Methodist Churchman in N.S.W., that visiting Parliamentary delegates had been en- tertained with strong liquor at Can- berra, despite an ordinance that the Federal Capital Territory is a dry area, was disavowed yesterday. As far as the Federal Government was concerned, an individual Minister stated that in all functions arranged by the Commonwealth at Canberra, in honor of the guests, the requirements of the ordinance was strictly observed. The "allegations, they pointed out, seem to have been directed against the N.S.W. State Government, which or- ganised the railway tours of the State, and no doubt alcoholic refreshments were made available on the train. Federal ministers knew nothing about 76,000 bottles said to have been removed from the Territory, but point- ed out that workmen and visitors in- troduced liquor from Queanbeyan.
