CHILDREN'S WELFARE IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927
CHILDREN'S WELFARE IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS As reported in previous issues of the "Community News," negotiations have been carried on between the Canberra Social Service Association and the Telopea Park School Parents and Citi zens' Association regarding the appoint ment of the Standing Education Com mittee of the former association. The Social Service Council, although appre ciative of individual application to the important questions of child welfare and education, did not consider that the sphere of activity of the Parents and Citizens' Association was sufficiently wide to embrace all forms of education, and every school in the Territory. More or* less of an impasse was thus reached, until the Chief Commissioner, Sir John Butters, outlined certain pro posals to place the whole question of child welfare and education on an equitable basis. These important prospects were duly considered at a very large meeting ot members of the Parents and Citizens' Association held at the Telopea Pa...

THE PAVILIONS. The stork is quite a respectable bird And is ru ff fed at various hints, * Poor Ena has swallowed a dictionary, And has never stopped talking' since. lt's a serious matter-dont' think it a joke To disclose their names would be wrong, Miss "?" has joined the Hand of Hope, And has brought Miss "?" along. Bottle O, Bottle O, You know th^t call, While they act with due decorwSn They fascinate the bolder sex, Who love, while they deplore 'em. Such sweet diversion-then they flit And life of charm is sore bereft. Tho, world looks blank-you sigh a space, But, cheer up! There are charmers left. The wild tum tum of native drum, From far Hawaiin Isles, Doth echo in these dainty, bowers Beware, beware of lady's wiles. Just tread with care, avoid the snare, Or cannibal feast you'll make. Else charmed by an early Victorian maid, Do your Benedict state forsake. They fell asleep many moons ago, And when a hundred years have fled They'll all be choked with cobwebs, and soot That falls...

A "Come to Canberra Week [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927
A "Come to Canberra Week »Sir,-Many of tho Comm on wealth's citizens would like to have a look at their capital if they could see it at rea sonable cost, and with fair comfort. Cities, like businesses, must be boom ed, so why not inaugurate a campaign throughout the continent that will bring crowds of curious proprietors to see their property, and to select a site or two or buy and build on. Cheap transport from all rival cities would be needful and the entertainment of the guests would be a splendid chance for Canberra residents to popu larise their city and themselves. The whole of the week should be given up to making the time speed by on the swift wings of pleasure, and such a riot of merriment should be offered that all would want to stay in what would be the jolliest city in the world. -Yours etc., "X."

OUR LETTER BAG Help for Mothers To The Editor, Community News. Sir,-Nearly all the women in Can berra have to do their own housework, and in normal times they get through, but during- periods of strain, the diffi culty, often mounting to impossibility, makes life very hard. Perhaps the Mothercraft Society could take up part of this heavy domes tic burden, and alleviate, if not entirely eliminate, the stress of the situation. If the society could formulate a scheme in which every woman in the community could be enrolled, and under which each woman would promise a meed of per sonal help, and what is still more pre cious-companionship-during- the try ing- times when their sisters are ap proaching maternity, they would find that a duty commonly shared would cease to he heavv. and would develop into a pleasure - -Yours, etc., "MOTHER."
