SOME SUGGESTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

SOME SUGGESTIONS (BY "GLEANER") Canberra is often described as a marvellous city, and I marvel much on the why and wherefor. No doubt it is a marvellous plan. In an en deavour to solve the problem of how the plan came into being I submerged ni y back teeth in O.V.G., wrapped a wet towel round my head-and dream ed a dream. And behold I saw a "burley" man spread a sheet of white paper on a table, then take a hand ful of coins of various denominations and toss them on the paper; where each coin landed he drew a circle, and decreed thus: "Bach circle shall be the centre of a "subbub" of this mar vellous city. According to the various values of the coins used to locate these contres so shall the building coven ant be; and for the roads that shall connect these various suburbs a bush gridiron shall be used for a plan. Thereby will strangers be impressed with the magnitude of the city when tho spedometer shall register 4 mile? between Acton and Ainslie, and so on. The effect of the O.V.G. ...

British Morris Convoy [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

British Morris Convoy Thc Federal Capital was recently visited by a long- line of Morris cars and trucks, and they formed an in spiring spectacle as they passed along the highways and byways of the eily. The convoy was arranged by Cheneys (A.ust.) Ltd., in order to give a prac tical demonstration to the people of New South Wales and the Federal Capital Territory what British engin eering skill, combined with Australian experts can produce in the world of motors. Although as is well known, British motor manufacturers received a tremendous set-back during the war, when ali the factories were handed over for the production of munitions, this convoy proves conclusively that those days have now gone by, and clearly shows the intention of British Australian motor manufacturers to come once again to the forefront in the manufacture of motor vehicles of design and comfort equal to if not bet ter than our competitors. We all know the great inroads made on Im perial Trade during the war perio...

BEAUCHAMP HOUSE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

? ?. 11 . "1 - BEAUCHAMP HOUSE Preparations for the house warm ing dance were made with expedition, and the function which eventuated on Wednesday, the 17th instant, went with a swing. "All was merry as a marriage bell!" Over thirty girl residents were "at home" to receive their guests on that evening. Many of the partners had only a short way to come, and the floor was quickly crowded with dancers when the orchestra took its place. The presence of Sir John Harrison, Colonel Thomas, and Colonel Owen, and other leading members of the Commission staff did not make the occasion a cere monious one. The girls of the Commission staff by this reception have made an excellent overture to the goodwill of their Acton neighbours, and the function was most enjoyable to both residents and guests. The exterior of Beauchamp House is spick and span in blue and white, the interior," until this occasion, rather austere. The party made a change in the atmosphere. The artistic streamer decorations and ...

PARLIAMENTARY SPORTSMEN ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

PARLIAMENTARY SPORTSMEN ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING The second annual meeting of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Staffs' Sports Association was held at Par liament House recently. The annual report submitted to the meeting stated that the membership of the association now totalled 92. Since the previous annual meeting eight com mittee meetings had been held, at which the attendances were as follow: Mi Adams 4, Mr. Bradley 8, Mr. Dodd S, Mr. Edwards 8, Mr. Green 7, Mr. Maplestone 8, Mr. Pettifer 8, Mr. Sparks 8, and Mr. Whiteford 2. Mr. Whiteford was in another State when six meetings were held, and Mr. Dodd had leave of absence for six months owing to severe illness. It was re gretted that the committee was un able to hold monthly meeting as laid down in the rules. This was due to the fact that the transfer to Canberra and the absence of members of the committee made a quorum impossible. At the first committee meeting after the last annual meeting the committee decided that no sporting fi...

PRINTERS' INK [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

PRINTERS' INK Wood has been a burning* question at the Printers' Quarters recently. Since the transfer of the represen tatives of the churches to the Hotel Wellington, the fires have shrunk to blackfellows' proportions, and the in habitants, to keep warm, have had re course to that well-known device of "nursing their wrath." A slip of paper bearing the Govern ment Printing Office mark was discover ed near the Printers' Quarters, and was found to have the following words in scribed thereon: Canberra's days are bitter days. And Canberra's nights are chill, When one's desire is a cosy fire, And the -longing to roam is nil. (Chorus) Oh, why did we leave our home in the South, Oh, Why, why, why f If we don't get wood, as we really should, We'll die, die, die. We think of the home fires burning bright In good old Melbourne town, And feel we're mugs, as we wrap in rugs, While the glass goes steadily down. (Chorus) Oh, why etc. There's sunshine and warmth and baronia blooming, In the city w...
