GORMAN HOUSE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

GORMAN HOUSE Most winding roads led to Gorman House on Saturday evening; 3rd Dec- ember, when the girls resident at the hostel gave a Christmas Party to their men friends and acquaintances. By 9 p.m. things were in full swing, the large dining-room presenting a very animated scene of the fair and thc brave, well intermingled. Banks of pink and red cluster roses filled the four corners of the room, and these, sided by coloured lights, cast a warm glow over everything. Dancing continued until supper which was served on the wide verandahs around the diningroom, where the dan- cers supped in a fairy setting of moon- light and roses. Gorman House at present is one blaze of colour for the roses are in their full glory, and reflect great credit on the Commissioner's gar- deners. The guests passed many com- pliments on the loveliness of the scene. During the evening the company were both honoured and delighted by the presence of Sir John and Lady Butters, who joined most heartily in the eve...

RUSSELL HILL [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

RUSSELL HILL j Fortnightly dances are the principal social activities of the Russell Hill Branch, the latest being held on Novem- ber 26th, to raise funds for the Christ- mas Tree function. Nearly one hun- dred and fifty attended, the music being supplied by the Merrymakers' Orches- tra. Special mention must be made of the work of Mesdames Cochrane, F. Davis and Munn, who put in great work in the preparation of the supper. (Our re- porter reminiscently wishes for one of the home made cakes, at the time of | writing). i We must extend our sympathy to Mr. Munn, who, we understand, is suffer- ing from housemaid's kneee after his strenuous service in getting the dancing floor ready. We also understand that the secre- tary of the Branch (Mr. Lloyd) mis- took the floor for a skating rink or an armchair or something of the kind; but after the hard owrk of organising the function, he was surely entitled to a rest. Others to give special service, for which the kiddies' enjoyment will be the ...

WESTLAKE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

WESTLAKE Westlake children are to profit by prevailing" enthusiasm for Christmas Trees, although when all is said and done, it is doubtful if the kiddies get us much fun out of the age-old cus- tom as do those grown-ups who have not forgotten the days of their own chldhood. In previous years the Progress As- sociation arranged the function, but be- ing since wound up. is handing over its credit balance of about £2 for th ? forth- coming celebration. The date of the function has not yt t been fixed, and the 1»ranch Secretary, Mr. Les Dwyer, is seeking further don- ations. There are some enthusiastic tennis players in the district through whose voluntary labours a splendid court has just been provided. A second court has just been commenced, and the workers hope to complete their labours in time for the Christmas holidays. The club is a community one and is anxious to meet others as well as to give a good account of itself in the Ten- nis Association, which it has just join- ed. THE T...

NOEL [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

NOEL I Apart altogether from its religion significance, Christmas has always been a genial and humanizing* festival. Nev. ertheless, one is compelled, however re. luctantly to admit that the holiday k bereft of much of the wholehearted, un .selfish joy with which it was greeted in days gone by. The old faith is dead for a large num. ber of people; the unquestioning faith that our forefathers possessed in abun- dance has, in the majority of cases, passed, and it must be revived before the true joy of the festival can be restored. In spite of the vast majority who would like to see the old Christ- mas spirit revived, the task is somewhat beyond them. We all remember the procession of our early Christmases. Those glad events spread over our childhood and youth, when we were still abundantly faithful to parental teaching. Those days most of us would gladly recall, and we could. We are loth to admit that the Spirit of Christmas is gone from us, and we strive by this and that endeavour, t...

CANBERRA CITY BAND [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

CANBERRA CITY BAND (By "Lend me your aid.") After nearly three years of movement up and down the scale of success, the hand appears at last to be headed for the top notes, and if present proposals materialise, will prove its right to be considered an asset not only to Canberra but to the musical world of Australia. The Commission which has always stood by the band, in that respect, by the way, setting an example which might well be followed by the commun- ity generally, has given its fifty-fifty agreement to the securing of a band master at a salary of £3 per week for his musical services. The position has been advertised in Sydney and Mel- bourne, and in the "Bandsmen's News." So optimistically do bandsmen regard the future of Canberra's band, that in- dications point to our having to choose from amongst the most capable band- masters in Australia. Such a development does not mean that the Canberra band has lost confi- dence in its present bandsmaster, Mr. L. Rowlands. By no means,...

Father Christmas at Parliament House [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

Father Christmas at Parliament House Being nigh to midnight, most mem- bers were nearly a-snore, for air was as heavy as the debate, and deadly flow of figures from the lips of Australia's Chief Treasurer-Hunter nearly sub- merged the senses, and induced a state of insensibility resembling sleep, though the whip of duty and respect for consti- tuents with votes kept most members reasonably open-eyed, though limp of body and dazed of mind. Suddenly the sound of bells, too dis- tant and musical to be the division bell arrested the ears of all, the Speaker cry extended there, a representative team lng-out of habit-those oft-heard word«, "Order, Order." A mighty laugh was the response. This unexpected erup- tion of sound brought the House to the point of alert wakefulness and wonder. Stranger still, a scarlet glow shone be- hind the Speaker's chair, which spread itself slowly outwards, and in the centre of the glow, the figure of Father Christ mas magically materialised. Out of the merr...

SOCIAL SERVICE HEADQUARTERS OUR NEW HOME [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

SOCIAL SERVICE HEADQUARTERS OUR NEW HOME By the time this issue appears in print the headquarters of the Commission's Social Service Branch-the Social Ser- vice Association, and *the office of this journal-will hav« transferred to Acti n House, which has been entirely renova- ted for this purpose. Old Acton House is a landmark in the history of the Territory, and the older portion of the building- was the original habitation of the first settler in the district. Alterations to the more modern part of the structure has resulted in the pro- vision of a splendid lecture hall which will easily accommodate 100 persons, and this will, during the coming year, prove a boon to the various organisa- tions affiliated to the Social Service As sociation, and working for the social well-being of the community. In addi- tion to this large room there will be several other different rooms which will thus avoid the congestion which arose during the past year at the Social Ser- vice building. It was n...

Christmas Thoughts [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

ITH the approach of Christmas our thooughts very naturally turn, when we have time in this busy place to aiiow our thoughts to getaway from work, to all that Christmas really means We do not think of Christmas as a time which merely involves a few days away from our work; quite a lot of us find our work sufficiently interesting and engrossing, as to find some to do, whether there are holidays on or not. They turn rather to al! that Christmas has come to mean to us-"Goodwill towards Men." 3 Surely this is very close to the Canberra Social Service ideal. If we do not as the result of the work of our Social Service Association increase the spirit of goodwill throughout the Canberra community, we shall have failed, and the responsibility for that failure will rest either on those who have not worked for the Association' ardently enough, or upon those who have not responded to the overtures made to them. The similarity in ideal between the coming Festive Season and Social Service suggest...

CANBERRATOMS Tho City Bust Service? The Social Service motto :-"Honey sett qui bon y pense." The train service to Melbourne is first class; families change at Goulburn.

All that's wanted now is somebody tarring the roads. Last Christmas, the Sydney police col- lected two hundred and something re- turn tickets to Canberra. That left a Bitter taste in the mouth, metorphoric ally speaking. But the taste of that Sydney Bitter is only metaphorical, in any case. The standard of living in Canberra is said to be t...

The Canberra Community News DECEMBER, 1927. OURSELVES—ALONE! [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

ÍEbe Canberra Commwûtg ^îefcr* DECEMBER, 1927. OURSELVES-ALONE! In this issue, like many a household- er lately entered into occupation of his property the "Community News" is breaking- new ground. For reasons of its own, thc Commission decided re- cently that it could no longer financo t he paper, and arrangements were bi'ing made for the cessation of publication. The Social Service Council, however, considering- that too valuable a medium of publicity would thus be discarded, determined to give it a new lease of life, and to develop it as a self-supporting activity. It is as such that it now appears, con- trolled by the people, for the people, and looking to the people for the interest each ordinarily displays in wrhat belongs to him. It should, perhaps, be stated that the venture is not one by private enter- prise, as Canberra generally accepts the term. Certainly it is not controlled by the Commission as an official or a semi- official undertaking', but neither is it controlled ...

FATHER CHRISTMAS WORKS OVERTIME IN CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

FATHER CHRISTMAS WORKS OVERTIME IN CANBERRA In past years a feature of the Christ- mas festivities at Canberra have been the efficient organisation of Christmas Tree jollifications for the youngsters. The various district branches of the Canberra Social Service Association have certainly excelled themselves this year and during the present month Santa Claus will put in many a wel- come appearance throughout the city area. From Ainslie to Molonglo in one di- rection, and from Westridge to Russell Hill in another, the hearts of the youngsters will be gladdened by the ap- pearance of the time-honoured person- ality of the universal dispenser of Christmas gifts. Father Christmas has already enter- tained the children at delightful little gatherings organised by the Causeway Branch, the Ancient Order of Foresters, and at St. Gabriel's School, Ainslie, working overtime on Friday, 9th inst.; at Russel Hill and Acton at functions held in the local halls, and dispensing happiness again on th...

DIGGER DOINGS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 16 December 1927

I DIGGER DOINGS The Diggers' Dinner on Armistice Day was "dry." Lemon squash and soup were not in the menu at Armen tieres! What a wonderful success it was! The Governor-Genera! looked at us through his eyeglass and said we were a fine hod y of men. The Prime Minister (Mr. Bruce) talk- ed about the Empire and the Capital of Australia. Sir Neville Howse told us about wars before the 1914-1919 stunt. We didn't think there were any "dinkum" ones before that, but he got his V.C. in an earlier one. 0/G<F£*Z /ff. " President Jackson's speech was broad- casted and was published in Blighty. Bully Woodger s remarks go no further than the Paris front. After singing "God Save the King," some of the Diggers headed for Quean- beyan and did not get back till 4 a.m. Captain Honeysuckle had charge of this battalion, which effected a highly suc- cessful raid. The "Little Digger" was missing from thc; dinner, and the Diggers were dis- appointed. Poppy Day was a great success for the ladies...
