(Published by arrangement. More Drinking than Dancing. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 February 1926
(Published by arrangmmet. More Drinking than Dancing. Many of the leading hotels in New York have decided to close their ball rooms to high-school aid college dances because, as Walter Guzzardi, President of the Hotel Belleclaire, puts it " there has'been more drinking than dancing at many of the gatherings." " Evei'y hotel man," said Mr. Guz. zardi to the " 'imes " (New York) "knows that juvenile drinking has reached grave proportions. The hotels know that carried liquor is in evidence at practically every function arranged at hotels by student organisations, and they know that clandestine drink ing by boys and girls of from 15 to 20 years of age is resulting in deplorable excesses." On this subject the report on Prohi. hition of the Department of Research and Education of .the Federal Council of Churches says, according to the New York" World " : In the colleges, undoubtedly, some alarming conditions have developed "The most serious aspect of the situation in the colleges is the f...

WE MUST REPEAT WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS THE SAME STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 February 1926
WE MUST REPEAT WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS THE SAME STORY. It is hard to say new things about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They relieve the lame and aching back, the sufferer from kidney disease, and the troubles 'of those whose urinary organism is wrong in its action. That they do this is so easy to prove that not a vestige of doubt remains. Public endorsement is easily proved. Read this case: Mrs. E. H. Johnston, late of Mor ton' Street, Queanbeyan, and who is now,living two miles out of the town, says: "I have great faith in Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and with rea son, for they cured me -of kidney trouble some time ago and I have been right, as rain ever since..: I suffered terribly from backache. be fore I took these Pills, the pains cutting like a knife. They seemed to centre just above the kidneys and, were particularly severe when I stooped or moved quickly. My rest at night was broken and during the day I felt tired and languid.

MOTOR NOTES POINTS ON THE STARTING MOTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 February 1926
MOTOR NOTES -9~-- POINTS ON THE STARTING MOTOR. Those who are owners of old-fash ioned cars not equipped with start ing motors generally exercise a great deal more caution and forethought when cranking the car than the hap py-go-lucky person who simply steps into the driver's seat and then pres ses the starting switch and allows the starting 'motor to "churn" the engine until something happens. The driver should remember that the starting motor and the accumulator which works it should be treated to as great a degree of consideration as the individual who is wielding the starting handle. It is just as neces sary when starting with a cold engine to flood the carbuietor. and to make use of the air strangler.as when the hand crank is being empibyed. The driver should protect tlhe starting motor as he would his own arm. Back fires are unnecessary and the motorist should always see that the spark lever is amply retarded and the throttle is opened wide enough to en sure an easy intake of ...

Master Picture News. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 March 1926
Master Picture News. Although his name stands for the highest ini dramatic artistry ;on two continents, John B'ari.ymore, :star of the Master Picture PrEduction 'The Sea Beast": Which will :s on be released throughout' Iiuus'talia, : re gards himself' as a failure. This ex traordinary viewpoint came to light during the filming of the picture. Mr. Barrymore, who creates the charac terization of Ahab Ceeley, a harpoo ner on.a New England ?whaling ship, drew on his forearm with a blue pen cil, a beautiful tatoo design which has great sentimental importance in the unfoldment of the story. When Millard Webb, the director, commented on 'his skill, Barrymore laughed. "One should be able to draw a simple tatoo design," he said, "after years of study, struggle, and desire to master the art of painting." Although John Barry more came from a distinguished theatrical family and friends, he 'had no ambition in that direction. IHe-wished to be an artist, but he .could not sell. his pictures. Unde...

STATE RADIO STILL "UNDER CONSIDERATION" [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 March 1926
STATE RADIO STILL "'UNDER CONSIDERATION' By C. C. Faulkner. For six months the State Govern ment has been brooding over its pro posed State radio scheme, but so far nothing tangible has resulted. The scheme as originglly announ ced provided for the establishment of "a high-powered station: at ' Sydney with relay stations at Newcastle, Wollongong,. Lithgow and Broken Hill.. Dubbo and Albury claimed con sideration and it was anhounced that other centres would be determined upon. ·.These relay, stations would pick up the Sydney programmes and relay (or broadcast) them so that listeners within a reasonable distance could pick them up even on small and in expensive sets. The scheme seems to have been delayed, not because the Government has altered" its opinion as' to the value of radio as a State instrumen tality, but because Cabinet seems never to have found time to deal with the proposal. A committee of three Ministers, Messrs. A. C. Willis, E. A. MeTiernan, and J. M. Baddeley, was app...
