EASTLAKE SHOPPING LATE FRIDAY NIGHT SHOPKEEPERS CONVENIENCING PUBLIC INCREASED SUPPORT PROMISED The increasing popularity of the Eastlake Shopping Centre is likely to receive additional impetus as a result of the establishment immediately of a late shopping night. Several storekeepers have decided to make a late Friday shopping night. The increased hours are expected to increase public support of the centre and encourage local purchases by people not ordinarily free except during the evening. The decision on the part of East- lake storekeepers to establish a late shopping night is expected to increase the volume of the turnover enjoyed by the stores. During recent weeks, there has been a steady increase in patron- age received by Eastlake shops. De- spite the fact that more shops have been established, individual businesses have received greater takings than be-   fore. This has been due to the grow- ing confidence on the part of the pubic that all wants may be provided...

The Women's and Children's Com- mittee, composed of women residents, did not function for the purpose for which it was created.

McNamara, Coy, and the General Secretary. Splendidly attended meetings of wo- men residents had been held at Ains- lie, Causeway and Molonglo, and in each of the centres a strong local com- mittee has been formed.

SOUTH AINSLIE Building Progress. 80 COTTAGES BUILDING [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926

SOUTH AINSLIE Building Progress. 80 COTTAGES BUILDING Considerable progress bas been made     by Messrs. Bruce, Eden, and Griffiths in their programme of 100 cottages which are being built for the Federal Capital Commission at South Ainslie. Some delay has been occasioned in   the carrying out of the original pro-   gramme owing to the shortage of brick supplies in the earlier part of building operations, but 25 cottages are now in the last stages of completion, while a large number are in varying stages from foundations to roofing. The total num- ber of houses on which work is now progressing is about 80.   It is not expected that the final build- ing operations will be completed for about six months.   In addition to the cottages which are being built for the Commission, private enterprise is paying attention to South Ainslie, and several cottages are to be commenced in the near future.

HEARD SYDNEY RADIO [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926

HEARD SYDNEY RADIO Letters continue to reach the Aus- tralian Broadcasting stations, not only from listeners throughout the Pacific   Islands, but from the United States.   The latest has been received by Station 2 B.L., Sydney, from F. H. Story, of the Yaquina Headlight Station, Agate Beach, Oregon, U.S.A. The writer is evidently on night duty, as he dates his letter 4.15 a.m. "Your programme was coming in fine up to a few minute's ago," he writes. "A lady sang three songs, which came in very well, fol- lowed by a gentleman singing two numbers—the first entitled, "Lady Mine." The second title I missed. I looked for Station 4 Q.C. (Brisbane), and when I came back you were broad- casting a musical number. It is of interest to note that the Aus- tralian stations, broadcasting their or- dinary evening programmes are afford- ing entertainment to persons engaged in lone occupations in the small hours of the morning at a lighthouse.

They Needed the Money! [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926

They Needed the Money! In one respect the experience of George Brook (tenor) and-Edward Ca- hil. (pianist), recently returned from London, should be taken to heart by other Australians who cherish visions of acquiring wealth and fame in the British musical world. Messrs. Cahill and Brooke have been working to- gether for the past ten years. Each saved £1,000 before they attempted a tour of Great Britain, and although they admitted they had been unusu- ally fortunate in the matter of receiving engagements, they found that they re- quired every penny of the money while they were getting es- tablished. Later, of course, they reaped a big monetary re-   ward, besides having a wonderful, tune socially.   * * *
