The Burns and Molonglo teams met on the Acton ground, and fast play resulted, but the Burns Club proved &nbsp; themselves superior exponents of the game, although the Molonglo Club were &nbsp; unfortunate because one of their play- &nbsp; ers C. Ridgewell, broke his ankle dur- ing play, and thus the defence of the Molongloites was weakened. &nbsp; &nbsp; Result: Burn's 5 goals; Molonglo 1 goal. CANBERRA ...

CANBERRA TEAM To Visit Sydney A Canberra Australian Rules Foot- ball team is to visit Sydney, on Satur- day, September 18, to meet a represent- ative New South Wales combination. Two visits have already been paid to Sydney by Australian Rules teams from Canberra. In 1924, North Sydney was met and defeated, and last year, the New South Wales second eighteen was victorious by a small margin of eight points. This year, not withstand- ing the fact that opponents will be New South Wales' best, Canberra should fully extend them, as no less than twelve of those men selected to represent Can- berra, have played senior football in the Southern and Western States. On Sunday morning_last, delegates &nbsp; &nbsp; from the five clubs comprising the Federal Territory Australian Rules &nbsp; &nbsp; League, met for the purpose of select- ing the team.

CANBERRA IN HISTORICAL FILM [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926
CANBERRA IN HISTORICAL FILM That a motion picture depicting events in the history of Australia should terminate with the consuma- tion of the Federation of the Com- monwealth of Australia in the open- ng of Parliament in Canberra in May next, is very appropriate. This is to be done in the making of a film 9000 feet in length which is being prepared by the Department of Markets and &nbsp; Migration. Some of the incidents to be shown in the film, will of necessity have to be acted, the landing of Captain Cook for instance. Other scenes &nbsp; will be gathered from existing films showing actual scenes of a few years ago. The most realistic portion of the picture will be that taken by the cinema photographers in Canberra in May &nbsp; next, and soon after that event the picture will be ready for release.
