CHILDREN'S LETTER BOX. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

CHILDREN'S LETTER BOX. Dear Canora,-I have often heard Daddy tallang about that long word-com- munity-and he says that you explained it very nicely in the Children's Column last month. I am not very good at writing letters, but as you said you wanted the children to write to you, I hope you will not mind me writing. We are going to school again on Wednesday, and I had a lovely time at Goulburn in the holidays. DAPHNE PETERS. / TIT_ « .. ... (Was very pleased to get your letter, Daphne.

CHILDREN'S COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

CHILDREN'S COLUMN. -? Dear Children,-Many years ago in one of the older countries, two men could not agree about something, so they went to the judge about it. Now the judge said to the two men "The best way to end this affair is to have a contest, and whoever wins the contest wins the argument." So he said, "Do you see those two horses over there?" "Yes," said the two men. "Well," said the judge, "each of you go into a dif- ferent stable, where you cannot see one another, stand behind a horse and pull his tail out; whoever gets the tail out first wins." So the men did what they were told to do. The first man caught the horse's tail and gave it a great pull. He hurt the horse so much that it gave one kick and he came down again from the sky only three weeks ago. But tii¿ other man instead c " hurting the poor horse began to pull out a hair at a time. He had not pulled many out when the judge looked in. "Ah," said he, "you need not pull any more out. The other man was in too much of ...

INDOOR RECREATION COMMITTEE. -A I CAUSEWAY HALL. ! Work on the erection of this hall has I continued satisfactorily. On Saturday, ! 16th January, there was a splendid turn- up of men, and great progress was made, the fixing of the roof timbers and iron being practically completed. The con- struction of the stage was commenced and a section of the fibro-cement ceiling fixed. The permanent lighting installation has been started, and light will be avail- able for the opening ceremony. POSTPONEMENT OF OFFICIAL OPENING.

Owing to the holidays, several weeks have elapsed since our last meeting. Our President (Mr. Brackenreg) has been en- joying a well-earned vacation, land re- turned to Canberra at the end of January so we are well in our stride again by now. At the last meeting details were final- ised in connection with the erection of the dressing sheds at Acton, for the Swimming and Life Saving Club, and thanks to the voluntary efforts of mem- bers of the Club, one shed was completed during a week-end.

LIBRARIES COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

LIBRARIES COMMITTEE. Action is developing rapidly and the es- tablishment of the central library, at least, will soon be an accomplished fact. Port tion of the former Acton Consulting Rooms has been granted by the Commission for library purposes, and alterations will be undertaken immediately to permit of early occupation. A publicity scheme i sunder way, the first step having been made in inviting representatives from the various camps and settlements to a meeting at which the Committee's proposals were ex- plained, with a view to subsequent meet- ings in the various centres. Proposals for considerably increasing the number of books available are under consideration, together with schemes for providing a steady flow of financial assistance. By next issue the Committee hopes to be in a position to publish its definite plan of distribution, and will then proceed on a systematic canvass for members.

BOOKS AND READING. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

BOOKS AND READING. We hear that the cup of happiness of the Libraries Committee is full and flowing over, the Chairman of the Commission having kindly approved the allocation of accommodation in the building: at Acton, formerly used as medical consulting rooma for use as the Headquarters and Central Library of the Committee. The programme of the Committee aims at service for all centres, and we give their slogan "A thou- sand members in six months," our bless- ing. Many advantages and disadvantages are said to be peculiar to Canberra, and one of the former is that of quietude so con- ducive to satisfactory reading. At home, especially in the long winter evenings ahead of us, the combination of good fires and books has not the opposition of myriad city counter attractions (though some of these will not come amiss when our de- velopment creates them) to combat, and, if fortune attend the efforts of the Indoor Recreation Committee, there will be quiet rooms in the camps, too, where the...

GRAHAM'S GREAT BOWLING. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

GRAHAM'S GREAT BOWLING. Playing for Hurley's XI. v. Maloney's XI. at Duntroon Oval on Anniversary Day, W. Graham, of the Hostel Club, put up a remarkable performance by dismissing nine good batsmen at the small expense of 37 runs. Graham kept an immaculate length throughout, and turned the ball sharply from both sides without any ap- parent change of action, with the result that he was practically unplayable. On present form Graham would be well worth a place in any side.

THE STAGE CANBERRA COMMUNITY PLAYERS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

THE STAGE -» , CANBERRA COMMUNITY PLAYERS Canberra may confidently expect a sur- prise when its Community Players make their debut in the near future. The play selected for presentation is "The Man from Toronto," a light comedy by Douglas Mur- ray, which achieved an undoubted success in London at the latter end of the war, and ran for over five hundred nights at the Duke of York's Theatre. Teeming, as this play is, with clean fun and delightfully comic situations, it must undoubtedly appeal to all and should prove to be a happy medium for the com- mencement of operations of such an enter- prise as Community Playing. The complete cast has been secured and the play is now well in rehearsal. As it will probably be the first three act play to be presented in the Federal Capital, and certainly the first in which all concerned are residents of Canberra, everyone feels that it is a somewhat historic occasion, and, as such, deserving of more effort on that account. As a result movement will...

Doug- las (chairman), Hurley, Knights (Dun- troon), Correy (Northbourne), Hirst (Canberra), Britton (Hostel), Carlos (McCarthy's), Boag (Westridge), Coy (Eastlake), and the hon. secretary (W. Cottingham). Before the official business of the meeting was commenced, the President welcomed to the Association Mr. J. H. Honeysett, who had boen prominently identified with the management of the game in Tasmania. The Chairman thought that the Federal Territory Association could rest assured that Mr. Honteysett, in his capacity as Social Service Officer to the Commission, would do all he could in the interests of the Association, and cricket generally in the Federal Territory. Mr. Honeysett, in reply, thanked the President and Association for inviting him to be present at the meeting, and stated that he would at...

THE MONTESSORI METHOD OF EDUCATION [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

THE MONTESSORI METHOD OF EDUCATION By C.A.F. Doctor Maria Montessori is responsible for much of the interest taken of recent years in kindergartens and infant educa- tion. This interest she has awakened by her books, educational and scientific ex- periments, and principally by her method of educating young children. Maria Montessori wras born in 1870 and still lives, demonstrating her method to hundreds of teachers, who flock to Italy from all over the world, for her books have been translated and widely circulated, and news of her work has travelled. She was the first woman in Italy to enter the me- dical profession, becoming a specialist in children's diseases and studied mental de- ficiency, concluding that it could not be cured by medicine but by education. Prom 1898-1900 Montessori conducted a school for feeble-minded and retarded children, and achieved such wonderful re- sults here that, after a further study of education methods and lectures in philoso- phy and psychology, sh...

BACHELOR'S BUTTONS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

BACHELOR'S BUTTONS -* Conjuror Cadden has performed a very mystifying feat, similar to the Great Mango Trick. A small box was lilied with earth in broad daylight, and Professor Cadden passed round for examination a number of Iceland Poppy seeds. These were then planted in the box and the Pro- fessor produced his stop-watch and made several mystic passes. Immediately loud blasts were heard on a trumpet from an adjoining tent. Everybody was completely mystified. The following morning every variety of plant, including a small gum tree, were flourishing in the soil. So far no satisfactory explanation has been given. We are glad to hear that Mr. Dickens has completed his studies in Engineering. His motor repairs shop at the Bachelors' Quarters fills a long-felt want. Cars and cycles may be left in the morning, and received the same evening, cleaned, re- paired, soled and healed. Speed friend McGowan is to be seen every evening on the Acton Racecourse track. To date his time for the six f...

Both Hall and Westridge, the two leading teams have suffered defeat by North- bourne. The Canberra Club, after regain- ing the favour of the Association insofar as having their lost points restored to them, is coming at the right end; they have scored three wins on first innings and one outright win already this round, and they will be hard to keep out of the semi- finals.

A RESOURCEFUL NEWCOMER. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

A RESOURCEFUL NEWCOMER. The Canberra team has been consider- ably strengthened by the inclusion of Harry Boulton, a tip-top wicket-keeper and batsman from the Bathurst district. Can- berra is, incidentally, well off for keepers nowadays, with two glove artists such as Honeysett and Boulton. Bolton occasioned considerable surprise to spectators and players alike during the course of a friendly match played at Bun- gendore between the local team v. Can- ' berra. After keeping wickets for a while during Bungendore's first innings, Skipper Perc.Douglas suggested that Boulton should discard the pads and take a turn with the ball. Bowling right hand Boulton quickly secured two wickets. Evidently- not satis- fied with the way things were going, Can- berra's all-rounder gave the umpire a bit of a shock when he intimated that he was going to bowl LEFT hand. This he pro- ceeded to do, with a resultant further three wickets to his credit! When it was the visitors' turn to bat Boulton knocked u...
