TENNIS SOME FINER POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
TENNIS SOME FINER POINTS. By "Play Fair." In this issue I will deal with posi- tion and court craft, two very essen- tial principles of the game which assist greatly to achieve success when other schemes fail. The fact of a player having command of, and being able to execute almost any stroke is not sufficient during the &nbsp; present era of tennis, to get one to the top of the tree. Looking back a little more than a decade, it is no- ticeable that very little attention was paid to the position and the advan- tages to be gained thereby; players were content to stop on the baseline and keep up a sequence of driving until one or other fell into error. Latterly the introduction of position has not only developed better play- ers but has added immensely to the splendour and excitement of the game. Almost every known writer of the game to-day elaborates very definitely on the great necessity of correct po- sition, and it is only as recently as the Wimbledon tournament where we r...
WITTY PARS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
WITTY PARS Two farmers met on their way to Church. One said: "Mon, I was won- dering what ye'd be asking for you bit sheep?" "I was thinking I wad be wantin' feefty shillin's," replied the other. "I'll tak it at that," said the first. "But I'm awfu' surprised wi ye dae- ing beesness on the Sabbath." "Beesness!" said the other, "that's nae beesness, it's charity." Two English tourists and a Scot were fellow passengers in a train journeying in Scotland. The fresh air came in when one dropped a window. "Isn't this salubrious?" he said. "Exhilirating," replied the other. "Yer baith wrong," said the Scot, "it's Bannockburn." Ever hear this one? The witty one asked his pals, A dog was tied to a rope fourteen feet long. Twenty feet away was a fat, juicy bone. How did the dog get to the bone? "Oh, that's an old one," said one of the group. "You want one of us to say, 'I'll give it up,' and then you'll say, 'That's what the dog did.' "No, you're wrong, for the dog got the bone." "Well, how d...

PROJECTED RAILWAYS TO CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
PROJECTED RAILWAYS TO CANBERRA. Practical interest in the future de- velopment of Canberra is shown by the activities of various centres of population in proximity to a direct line from Melbourne to the Federal Capital. A deputation waited on the Hon. M. Flannery, Minister for Railways, N.S.W., introduced by the Minister for Lands (Mr. P. J. Loughlin), re- questing a survey of a proposed direct route to Canberra, from near Wagga via Tumut. Delegates from Wagga and Tumut stated their case. Mr. J. Elliott (Tumut Railway League), stated the line would have four outstanding advantages. There would be an enormous saving in mileage compared with the route through Goulburn, an immense am- ount of fine country would be opened up, the loss through drought in the Riverina would be lessened, and Par- liamentarians and tourists to Can- berra would be given speedy and easy access to some of the finest scenery in the State. All the deputation asked was a survey of the proposed line, and a full re...
CANBERRA FORGING AHEAD [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
CANBERRA FORGING AHEAD Mr. Chas. W. Priest, of Flinders House, Flinders Street, Adelaide, paid his second visit to Canberra last week. His first visit was to attend the first auction sale of land on Fed- eral Capital Territory, December 12th last year. In conversation with the Editor, he stated although he bought nine building blocks, the majority at Ainslie, and others at Blandfordia, he was not impressed with the opin- ions of optimists of the possibility of early activities in the direction of &nbsp; building operations. The exagger- ated reports of the recent flood in the press of anti-Canberra States Melbourne and Adelaide—made him wish he had not invested. He came to view his purchase and found that instead of devastation he was sur- prised at the progress made and the undoubted good prospects for safe investment in securing sites at the Federal Capital. He proved his faith by purchasing six more sites—mak- ing 15 in all. Mr. Priest intends starting building operations...
CANBERRA FOOTBALLERS VISIT SYDNEY [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
CANBERRA FOOTBALLERS VISIT SYDNEY Canberra League sent a team to Sydney to play the Metropolus on Saturday last. The game preceded the Interstate match between N.S.W. and Victoria and provided an inter- esting and even contest. The visi- tors were handicapped by reason of an all-night journey which ended with their arrival in Sydney at 5 a.m. on Saturday. The visitors possess some fine players in J. and H. Ryan, Newman, Phelan, Clark, Bastow, and Mongan. A good game ended with the Metropolitan team winning by 8-10 (58 points) to 7-8 (50 points). Goalkickers: Metropolis, Rudolph (2), Bridie (2), Percy, Cunneen, Binding, and Bagnall; Canberra, Burr, J. Ryan, Bastow, Mongan, Car- ter, Clark, and Yandall. Field um- pire, S. F. Barnett. &nbsp; At the Town Hall the Victorian and Canberra players were accorded a civic reception by Lord Mayor Stokes. Mr. J.M. Orr of the Canberra team asked for annual fixtures for matches at Canberra with teams from Melbourne and Sydney.

MADE IN GERMANY [We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents]. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
MADE IN GERMANY [We do not necessarily identify our- selves with the opinions expressed by correspondents]. (To the Editor.) Sir,—On August the 4th, while wandering around Canberra, my &nbsp; thoughts naturally glided back along the stream of time to a like date eleven years ago. The clarion call had gone forth to Britishers the world over, to fight and bleed, and die if need be, to "keep the world safe for Democracy." Germany had drawn the sword and the peace of the world was in peril. Winston &nbsp; Churchill had said, "There can be no peace until Prussian militarism is pulverised, and German truculance abased." Never again would we trust—or trade with—Germany. &nbsp; To-day, in one of the workshops at &nbsp; Canberra, a big clock "Made in Ger- many," looks brazenly down on Bri- tish tradesmen, and tick-tacks away the hours which they must work, on machines made in America, turning out material for the building of the Australian Capital—Canberra, th...
WAR ANNIVERSARY EMPIRE FLAG SUGGESTED. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
WAR ANINIVERSARY EMPIRE FLAG SSUGGESTED. A new Empire flag was suggested by Mr. A. G. Alanson, headmaster &nbsp; of the Randwick Commercial Inter- mediate High School, when he ad- &nbsp; dressed 700 senior boys on the anni- versary of the outbreak of the war. Australia, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, and every other British territory, he said, had combined with Great Britain to oppose Germany. To symbolise that combination, and the united empire thus visibly de- monstrated to other nations, the flags of Australia and the other parts of the Empire should be combined with the Union Jack to form an Em- pire flag. This subject should claim the at- tention of the statesmen of our Bri- tish Comnimiowealth of Nations. Pa- triots claim that Australia entered the portals of nationhood through the grim, and deadly, cliffs of Gallipoli. Australia has been acclaimed as a nation by British statesmen on every aniversary of that never-to-be-for- gotten April 25th, bought with t...
"THE GORMAN CUP." [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
"THE GORMAN CUP." By "Play Fair." The Canberra Tennis Association is deeply indebted to Mr. C. H. Gor- man (member of Federal Capital Commission) for his valued donation of the Gorman Cup, for which play commenced on Saturday, 8th inst. The Association has introduced a knockout competition for the purpose of ascertaining the original holders of the trophy, and in the first round Eastlake played Northbourne, and Westridge forfeited to Blandfordia. The attitude of the Westridge Club is particularly regrettable and cer- tainly shows that the organisation has been very lax. The tennis witnessed at the East- lake v. Northbourne match was of a very good standard, the ladies of both teams playing to top form. The most consistent tennis of the after- noon was that of Mrs. Maguire, who played splendidly, coolness and con- sistency winning for her on numer- ous occasions. &nbsp; &nbsp; Anticipation in general was that &nbsp; a close game would result, but the good play...

QUEANBEYAN MOORE'S NO. 2 SUBDIVISION. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
QUEANBEYAN MOORE'S NO. 2 SUBDIVISION. Our readers are advised to con- sider carefully the advertisement of Moore's No 2. Subdivision appearing in this issue. This estate is the picked part of Queanbeyan from a residential point of view, as it lies directly to the West of the settled &nbsp; part of the town with a nice Easter- ly aspect overlooking the town and is in close proximity to Uriarra Road, the main access to Canberra, Quean- beyan Railway Station, and the shop- ping centre. Upset prices are shown on the plan for the information of buyers and the terms which allow the purchase of a block for a deposit of only £10 and give three years to pay the balance, make it possible for everyone to secure a home site there; on top of this five per cent discount is allowed for cash and a further five per cent to buyers who com- mence to build within six months &nbsp; from date of purchase. Woodgers and Calthorpe, Queanbeyan, are &nbsp; handling the auction on the 5...
COUNCIL OF ACTION [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
COUNCIL OF ACTION Mr. Geo. Waite, assistant secretary of the United Labourers' Union, trenchantly deals with "The Council of Action" when he writes "That Australia is the land of opportunity and boundless possibilities, eclipsing the U.S.A., is demonstrated by the evolution of Mr. A. C. Willis, M.L.C., from secretary of the Council of Action in 1922 to Vice-President of the Legislative Council in 1925. From a dingy upstairs back room at the Trades Hall, the Government &nbsp; leader in the Upper House and his private secretary, Mr. E. R. Voigt, now collaborate in the well-appointed offices at Parliamnent House, that sheltered Sir Joseph Carruthers dur- ing the Fuller Administration. On October the first, 1922, the Council of Action, representing the militants of the Commonwealth, issued a re- port and manifesto, that threw much &nbsp; light on the amazing appointment of Mr. Enmile R. Voigt, as he and his &nbsp; chief are old comrades-in-arms. In the summary of...

PRESENTATION TO MR. McNAMEE. For his patient, quiet, unostenta- tious, work as secretary at Canberra, of the Federated Enginedrivers and Firemen's Union, the members of this union, Sewer Section, on the Federal Territory, met and presented &nbsp; Mr. McNamee with a gold chain, at &nbsp; the same time expressing their sin- cere appreciation of his sustained and unselfish efforts to place matters affecting their branch before those in authority, always without un- necessary friction, yet justly stating facts. The presentation was made by Mr. Palmer, President of the &nbsp; Union, and Mr. McNamee feelingly responded —Congratulations on the the honor bestowed, we supplement.

FOR TEN YEARS — DEPENDABLE Exceptional dependability has been a characteristic of Dodge Brothers Motor Car since the day the first of these sturdy cars was marketed. Not once in a decade has it failed to uphold and enhance its reputation for faithful performance. The reason for its consistent goodness and continued betterment points directly back to the ideals of the founders. Instead of fluctuating between an endless series of annual models, they determined to concentrate on the perfection of a single chassis. Dodge Brothers Motor Car to-day is the embodiment of that ideal—an ideal that will endure as long as the institution itself.

WELFARE ACTIVITY AT CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
WELFARE ACTIVITY AT CANBERRA Readers will be interested in some account of proposals which are under consideration for the improve- ment of the welfare of those who are employed by the Federal Capital Commission in the establishment of the city. The Commission, having obtained the approval of the Minister for Home and Territories to the allo- cation of a substantial amount for the purpose, the Chairman convened, some weeks ago, a meeting in the Action Recreation Hall, to which, representatives of all Unions and Employees' Communities were in- vited, and at which, after describing the general disabilities of social life at Canberra, he exhorted the audi- ence to throw their energies into co- operation with the Commission with a view to improving the general con- dition of the industrial community. The Commissioner instanced the amazing and rapid results of the constructive effort of such a nature at other places, notably at Port Pirie in South Australia, and expressed his faith in th...
CANBERRA'S FIRST BRASS BAND. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
CANBERRA'S FIRST BRASS BAND. While in another column we indi- cate that the general development of welfare activities at Canberra will not be available for publication until next issue, one phase has advanced suf- ficiently to justify present reference. Readers will have noticed from daily contemporaries in the States, that the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, recent- ly, on behalf of a few of the musical citizens of that city, presented to the Chairman of the Federal Capital Commission, (Mr. J. H. Butters, C.M.G., M.B.E.), a set of brass band instruments which the latter re- ceived on behalf of the Commission. This generosity, linked with the en- thusiasm of a number of trained instrumentalists (who have combined under the aegis of the Outdoor Recre- ation Committee) who are planning regular and frequent practice nights —where, is at present not divulged, but that cannot long remain a secret —will bear fruit in due course, and Canberra will, it is hoped, foregather at various fixtures, whi...
