ASSOCIATION'S ANNUAL MEETING VERDICT AND VICTORY FOR SOCIAL SERVICE VITAL ISSUES INVOLVED [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 July 1927

ASSOCIATION'S ANNUAL MEETING VERDICT AND VICTORY FOR SOCIAL SERVICE VITAL ISSUES INVOLVED "And through tlw dust of hattie Truth shines forth, and calms man's foolish and destructive wrath." It was freely, and, we think, fairly said, that the life or death of social service in Canberra was at issue at this momentous meeting of the Association held at Acton Hall on Wednesday, July 6, and the verdict was awaited with anxiety by those who look beyond the shadows cast by light and trifling things to the beautiful potentialities inherent in. a great ideal. To clear the way for the chief event of the evening, formal amendments that cut out some contradictory clauses in the constitution were agreed to at re cord speed after just a phrase Of two of explanation, and the stage was then set for the vital conflict between a broad and splendid conception of social service achievement, and the conven tional and comparatively impotent activity of a Town Council, whose aims centre around the unroman...

BOWLS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 July 1927

BOWLS (Br "Jack") The Canberra Bowling Club termin ated its first season on June 6, when the final matches for the singles cham pionship and pairs handicap were played. The final for the singles cham pionship was fought out by Smith and M'Kinstry. Had a vote been taken amongst players as to who was the best performer in their ranks, it would certainly have been in favour of M'Kin stry. Smith was accordingly up against it in having to meet this master of the game. He, however, fought gamely, but his efforts were without avail and he had to bow to the masterly skill of his opponent. M'Kinstry's good sports manship has won for him many friends in the club, and his success in gaming the honor of being the first champion of the club and thus capturing the much-coveted President's trophy is a most popular one. The last competitors left in the pairs handicap were Hayes and Coy, and Davies and Francis, lt was considered by many that Davies and Francis would come out winners of this competit...

BABY HEALTH CENTRE OFFICIALLY OPENED RY LADY BUTTERS Saturday, July 2, was an historie date in the annals ot" th;- Social Ser vice movement, in Canberra, and in particular of the Canberra Mothercral't Society. After many months of untiring effort the Society is now in the proud posi tion of having established and being able to maintain the first; baby heall li centre in the Federal Capital Territory.

GORMAN HOUSE SOCIAL ACTIVITIES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 July 1927

GORMAN HOUSE"* SOCIAL ACTIVITIES A farewell to Miss Suter was spon sored by Miss Turnbull, and with the kindly assistance of Mrs. Hicjts, party and supper were both specially en joyable. A tilt at the monotony o' Iii iu',s was made by the holding- of two little semi-private parties in one of the main sitting rooms and lounge, which were M IT i te successful and pretty little func tions. A farewell party, run by the House Committee, to the three popular young ladies, Misses Doris Macafee, Eileen Mvans, and Sheila Keating, was a bright event. It broke up several times before the guests (a good many «ame from Bachelors' Quarters) l;-ft early in the morning. The boxes of chocolates presented to the young ladies were donated from the afore mentioned quarters. SPORTING. Miss Druitt won in two events of Canberra Tennis Association's Handi cap Tournament, and if her departure had only been deferred a little longer there isn't much doubt that the Gor man Cup woùld have found a resting place ...

THE BACHELORS' BALL A WONDERFUL NIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 July 1927

THE BACHELORS' BALL A WONDERFUL NIGHT Gaiety of life was at h'tili t d " at the Bachelors' Ball on the evening of Friday, Jmu 24, and th^s brilli ant affair c..;;t .so much cred t on ' th bachelors that they now stand well above par as desirable stock in the marriage market. From the first tinkle of the piano to the last beat of danc ing feet on the highly polished floor, the time was packed full of pleasure and delight; indeed, the final minute of that long night was crowded with innocent delight which will make pleasant memories for weeks to come, and it may be guessed that all the guests harbored the cheeky but com plimentary hope that the dance is but a prelude to many more. What the ball cost in anxious pre paration-coin of the realm is of no account in a bachelor's calculations we can easily imagine, for everything was on that liberal, shall we say lav ish, and opulent scans o/ \ h ch on y a bachelor banking account can stand the strain. Great expectations were naturally focus...

CAMP NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 July 1927

CAMP NOTES (By "Gleaner") 'a It is surprising- the improvement that has taken piace in the past few months in the various camps. Eastlake is a nice little area of cubicles; so is "White City," which, incidentally, has turned green. Northbourne, the Cinderella camp of the Territory, has been stirred to its depths by the recent sad fatality. Good mates on Earth-in death they were not divided. "Requiescat in Pace." May one venture to suggest that better provision might be made for the men's needs in leisure hours. With a floating popu lation coming and going, it is hardly to be expected that they will build their own recreation halls, when they may never have the use of them. Some reasonable security of tenure might be assured to men engaged in the erec tion of recreation halls by voluntary labour. Russell Hill has now 101 families settled thereon, and over 120 children ! of school age. When is the long-look ed-for local school coming along?

WELL-KNOWN MEN LEAVE CANBERRA Mr. A. GLASSEY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 July 1927

WELL-KNOWN MEN LEAVE CANBERRA ! Mr. A. GLASSEY   A farewell presentation was made to Mr. A. Glassey, Internal Auditor, in tho Commission Board Room, on Sat- urday, July 5 by Mr. Glassey's brother officers. The presents consisted of a travelling rug, a bag, and a wallet of notes-contents unknown. It may be said that Mr. Glassey resigned his position to take up a more important and remunerative appoint- ment in the gayer and more brightly illuminated Sydney city, and the pre- sentation was a little expression of the popularity achieved by him during his two years' stay in the capital. In making the presentation Sir John Butters referred in glowing terms to Mr. Glassey's work, and stressed the fact that he had been associated with him (Sir John Butters) as accountant, auditor and secretary for some years in Tasmania, and then came over to Canberra to act as Internal Auditor in the Commission's organisation. Sir John Butters said he was very glad of the opportunity to thank...

A Plea for the Molonglo [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

A Plea for the Molonglo Now that the lake scheme seems a gold medal certainty, a curious resi dent would like to know whether the very picturesque part of the Molonglo between the lower an<1 higher level bridges could be saved from the oblit erating flood which is likely to fill the natural basin through which this por tion of the river flows. The engineering genius of the Com mission Office staff would he quite equal to this task if it were worth while to carry out. On the credit side of the proposal is the fact that a scenic gem would be saved which could be made still more charming and attractive. Perhaps a sunken garden set between embank ments could be designed, and on the water of the lake gondolas could sall to and fro, unloading their passengers at pretty landing stages from which they would descend to an area'devoted entirely to pleasure, with open air theatre, orchestras, lager beer (!) and tea gardens, dance halls and billiard saloons, all surrounded by natural...

CANBERRA BOWLING CLUB PRESENTATION OF TROPHIES A most enjoyable social evening was held at. the Hotel Kurrajong on Thurs day, July 28, which concluded a most successful first season's operations of the Canberra Bowling Club.

PRINTERS' JOLLY EVENING SUCCESSFUL WELCOME SOCIAL [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

PRINTERS' JOLLY EVENING SUCCESSFUL WELCOME SOCIAL "Hansard" may be dull, but those who print it are not, and they sparkle rigrht brightly at night, especially when they find an atmosphere harmonising with happiness as at the welcome given to them by the citizens of Canberra at the Hotel Kurrajong on Wednesday, August 10. One was glad to notice the youth of many of the guests, and could only envy them the many happy years that are ahead of them as residents in the world's newest, and we claim, most beautiful capital. When the clock ticked itself round to the starting time-a red-letter moment in Time's long career-the band struck up, and the dancers took the floor to the tune of all sorts of maddening and mirthmaking sounds, from counterfeit cock-crows to the scream of a kicked tin-can, and after a turn or so, one might have fancied that the floor danced, too. After the first long whirl, magic made its appearance on the scene, incarnate in the athletic and very material form of Mr. J....
