Canberra's New Residents WELCOMING FUNCTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

Canberra's New Residents WELCOMING*' FUNCTIONS The first of the welcoming- functions to new arrivals from Melbourne was sot down for July 29, at which it was in tended to entertain members of thc Parliamentary staff now in residence. Owing, however, to the deeply regretted death of Mr. Walter Gale, Clerk of the House of Representatives, it was de cided to postpone the opening social to a later date. It was thereupon decided to alter the dates of the first three welcomes as follow: Wednesday, August 10.-Welcome to Government Printing Office staff. Friday, August 19.-Welcome to Par liamentary staff now in residence. Saturday, September 3.-Welcome to Prime Minister's Department. The first of the social evening's tend ered to the staff of the Government Printing Office, passed off most suc cessfully at Hotel Kurrajong, on August 10 of this month, and if the result of the first function is any criterion, then newcomers and local residents are assured of some jolly evenings during the rem...

BOXING. RESUMPTION OF CONTESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

BOXING. RESUMPTION Of CONTESTS. At the Causeway Hall on Thursday, July 28, an enthusiastic house testi- fied to the popularity of the fistic game in the Federal Capital. The Canberra Fire Brigade Recrea- tion Club, which has proved itself such a live organisation in the promotion of boxing contests in Canberra, had been in recess for several months, con- sequently the resumption of the club's activities had been eagerly anticipated by fight fans, who turned up in large numbers to welcome the club's new session. The main contest of the evening, of 15 2-minute rounds, between "Kid" Dencio (holder of the H. J. Richard- son (belt), and the lightweight champion of the Territory, and "Red" Mitchell, challenger, did not eventuate owing to the non-appearance of the challenger. The President of the Club, Mr. P. F. Douglas, announced to the large gath ering that the club was in no way re- sponsible for Mitchell's non-appear- ance, but had pleasure in announcing that "Rubber" Brown, who was we...

QUEENSLANDERS VISIT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

QUEENSLANDERS VISIT CANBERRA. Tho visit of thc. Queensland Inter state representatives meant far more than a mere exhibition to the local nu-: QI-f-:i-;xM,Asn EHIIITEEX. game, lt was not the national game al its best, but the exciting final quar ter, with its open, dashing play, with the advantage see-sawing every minute, and the result in doubt till the last bell, will not need to be repeated very often to place the game in undis puted posesssion of thc affections of sportsmen and the playing grounds of Canberra. Should a team from New Soul h Wales come here at the end of iiie month, and a similarly exciting linish prevail, the pioneers of the local game will be able to sit back and say that their work has been accomplished. Prior to half time the match was a poor advertisement. Canberra, in the green and gold which has been Aus tralia's glory in international cricket, was an eighteen of individuals, with out combination, and with a good deal of stage fright, and in some instances ...

CANBERRA COMMUNITY LIBRARY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

CANBERRA COMMUNITY LIBRARY The library dance, fixed to be held at the Causeway Hall on the 8th instant, was postponed to Friday, September 23, owing" to bad weather. It is hoped that the function will be most successful and that big profits will result which will be used to further augment the . splendid stock of reading matter avail able to subscribers. A branch of the library has now been established at the Social Service Build ing- at North Ainslie, which is located in the weatherboard area, and the man ner in which local residents are patron ising the new branch promises well for the future. The opportunity of being able to secure reading matter locally without & having to travel to headquarters at Acton, is being greatly availed of by Ainslie residents, and a continuance of the enthusiasm displayed should result in further facilities being extended to the new branch at Ainslie. During the last month 150 new volumes were added to the shelves of the library, and the commi...

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

GORMAN HOUSE Exodus-from the land of Ainslie into Acton. The aesthetic beauty of the covered ways and the rose gardens are left with regrets. A good many regrets. The covered ways are a "thing of beauty"-in the summertime-but, "icy blows the blast," and alpine scenery does not temper the wind. Much latent musical talent came to light in the last sing-song on the last Monday evening. It was the "Adieu to the piano," although Miss Weston sang her extensive repertoire unac- companied. She is a regular attendant at the Bath Academy practices and has now no rival. The Band of Hope held its final Gor- man House meeting. Several outlaws were sentenced by the Chief Examiner, Miss Scott, for joy riding without being sanctioned, and for other de- lequencies not disclosed. The subscription has been fixed at 3d and this payment represents a 99 years' right to water from the Band of Hope Kettle. One member is fully paid up. The kettle received free transport to Beauchamp House.

Social Service Hall for Ainslie [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

Social Service Hall for Ainslie Sir,-Will you allow mc to bring un der the notice of residents of Ainslie, through your paper, a scheme to build a hall for the district requirements. For some considerable time this mat ter has been talked of, and now a definite scheme has been prepared, and is ready for submission to the residents it only requires the united support of all in thc district to build it. There can be no doubt of the neces sity for a place where local functions can bc held, and where the Social Ser vice Club can be housed in such a way that it can fulfil the purpose for which it was founded. Such a building would help the social life of the residents very much, -as amusement of a collective nature is somewhere scarce. My committee is very anxious that this public utility should have the whole-hearted support of all ,and for that reason 1 am address ing this letter to the residents of Ains lie. 1 should like to point out that this hall, when built, will be for all-in oth...

All the preparations were made quietly, but tho organising work was very thorough and everyone was delighted and a very enthusiastic acclamation was accorded Miss Shearing and co workers at the end of the evening. The coloured streamers and balloons were both dainty and gay. Arbuckle's band music made sounds of revelry by night. Everyone deserved a prize for coming in costume, and the judges (Mr. and Mrs. Burgess and Mr. and Mrs. Bert wistle) made their decisions quickly, and the winners are to be congratulat ed. Miss Shearing and Mr. Gordon, pierrot and pierrette costumes, fully merited the special prize awarded. Miss Dunn, another prizewinner...

OBITUARY LATE MR. C. E. SHAKESPEARE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

OBITUARY LATE MR. C. E. SHAKESPEARE It is with deep regret that we record the death of Mr. Clarence E. Shakes- peare, which occurred in Sydney, at the early age of twenty-three years, on Friday afternoon last, August 12. He was the youngest son of the Hon. T M. Shakespeare, M.L.C., and he had been actively connected with the Can- berra "Times" from its inception. Clarrie Shakespeare was well-known to local sportsmen, and in particular, he performed a great deal of valuable work last year in connection with the preparation of reports of matches, and statistics recording cricket matches played under the jurisdiction of the Federal Capital Territory Association. He was an ardent cricket enthusiast, and will be very much missed among local cricketers during the forthcoming season.

NATIONAL FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

NATIONAL FOOTBALL "Australian Rules" is no moro. The Australasian Football Council, which last week was holding* a tri-onnial conference, decided that the time had arrived to emphasise thc Australian ness of the game, and took to itself, and to the State Leagues, the title of "Australian National." It is safe to say that this is one of the wisest moves the council lias yet made, foi" whatever nny ho tho .strength ot' a in fection for Soccer and Rugby by those brought up to them, sooner or later, the appeal to his nationality must be felt by every good Australian in those parts of New Sont li Wales and Queensland, whore no real effort lias yet been made to dislodge the imported codes. In Canberra, as has often been said, there is room, if there are not grounds, for all codes. But supporters of thc National game welcome the council's decision, for Om borra, more than any where else in A usi raba, is Australian, national feeling, .take the 'national and ultimately will because of tho g...

ACROSS AMERICA [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

ACROSS AMERICA Many of the older residents of Can berra will remember Mr, Keith Hudson, who formerly occupied a position in the Architect's Department of the Federal Capital Commission. In a letter to Mr. C. E. Pike, of the "Community News" office, Mr. Hudson forwards a most interesting account of a journey taken by him through the United States, which we have pleasure in publishing hereunder: It had come time for me to say good bye to Los Angeles, "Our City, the Queen of the Angels," and on a bright day in August I farewelled the movie town, its wealth and amazing motor traffic, new fads and neurotic female evangelists and mounted the train which was to carry me over two thousand miles across the continent to New Orleans. The first part of the journey was through pleasant orchard country, in the rich valleys between thc Sierras, but gradually this gave way to a less fertile landscape, and towards evening the mountains had faded away in the dusk and distance as the train was speedin...

SISTER GERT'S LETTER HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 18 August 1927

SISTER GERT'S LETTER HOME. Dear Bill, Was fearfully bucked to get your letter some weeks ago telling me to expect the parcel, andIi have now   hunted down the wrapper . lt was awfully nice of you to remember my birthday; we have all been making guesses as to what the parcel contained when you sent it. I had the greatest fun with it. I asked at the post office so often that the boys behind the counter all got to know me quite well. Yesterday Ï asked as usual for a par- cel-nothing doing; then I tried a packet-still no luck; then I had a brain wave and asked for a sealed en- closure-well, it seemed there had been one of them some days ago, but it couldn't be found, probably returned unclaimed. I felt a wee bit disappointed at having so nearly almost succeeded, and was just flitting when I saw a big yellow dog chewing brown paper in a corner. When he saw me he looked awfully guilty and tried to cover up some writ- ing with his paw. This aroused my suspicions, so I called t...

The Art Society [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

Thc Art Society "Candida" forwards an extract from her diary: Saturday, 3rd December. To-night 1 went to the Art Society's last meet- ing for th? year. I rather like the look of the President, Sir Robert Gar- ran. He looks a humorous old bean. The dismembered head of the Art Section had some quite creditable pro- ducts on view in the entrance-the rest of the insect has renamed itself the Canberra Art »o*»c«y-one por- tion will have to grow a new body and the other o new head! The maga- zine was fairly interesting. The story called "The Golden Poplar" was a read- ing "prose-poem" and had very great charm, but is suffered from being read too monotonously. The verses contri- buted were good, and Mr. BroinowskFs reading was particularly fine. There are great possibilities in the musical section judging by the stannard reach- ed in the performances of Messrs. Doig, Dayel, and Miss Shanley. Mrs. Ashdown's was the outstanding char- acter in Barry's "The Twelve Pound Look," read by the dram...
