CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS WEEK'S CAMP AT ACTON. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS _?_._ WEEK'S CAMP AT ACTON. After all arrangements had heen com pleted for the visit of 150 Senior Boy Scouts to Canberra from 16th to 23rd January, it came as a keen disappoint- ment to local Scouts when it was learned that Headquarters at Sydney had cancel- led the visit. In order, however, not to disappoint the Canberra lads, the local boys went into camp at Acton for a week, as originally arranged. The camp was a great success both from an instructive and enjoyable point of view, as the follow- ing log, kept by Scoutmaster Guthrie, will confirm: Friday, 15th Jan.-Arrived at camp 7 p.m. Put up extra tent. The boys made themselves comfortable. Had a camp-fire .short singsong. I gave a talk of what was expected of them while in camp; also spoke on camp hygiene. Saturday, 16th Jan.-Reveille G a.m., but most boys were up at 4.30. Physical training games at 6.30, fol lowed by :i swim. Breakfast at 8.

TRAGEDY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

TRAGEDY -# O, who unmoved could mark the sign Of sorrow on anothers's brow, And feel no sympathy benign, Wherewith the sufferer to endow. Well, friends, not I! I saw a man Whose eyes looked ever to the ground, Exactly what he strove to scan, By gazing thus at last I found. 'Twas trouble bent that manly form, The imprint of an awful care, The ravages of stress and storm, Had sought him out-and found him there. I could not bear to see him so, With speech an index to my heart, Warmed thro' and thro' with pity's glow, Addressing him behold me start. "Why do you mourn," I sadly mark, "Your features all awry with pain, "A sorrow dull and grim and dark, "Exerts on you its cruel strain." "Perhaps a brother, child, or wife, "Some loved one now lies in the grave? "Their death has taken from your life "The sunshine that their presence gave." But mournfully he shook his head. "Year's savings," said I "have you lost Into some speculation led Whose path was by misfortune crossed?" "If not, speak ...

CANBERRA SWIMMING AND LIFE-SAVING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

CANBERRA SWIMMING AND LIFE-SAVING CLUB. -# The above Club is not yet in a position to announce the date of its opening gala as the activities of its prospective members have been confined to the erection of swimming sheds, etc. A working bee was in operation during the past week-end and, considering the counter attractions, the response was gra- tifying. One shed is completed and the other should be almost finished during thc coming week-end. To expedite the Club's opening cere- mony, in addition to the members' working bee, the Committee is considering employ- ing two carpenters to complete the remain- ing shed. As this can only be done by members meeting their subscriptions at an early date, it is to be hoped that the appeal in this direction will meet with a ready response. The Committee wish to thank all who assisted on Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday, with special mention to Messrs. Harrison, Sharkey and Corrie, who loaned their cars and services for the transport of workers and m...

CAMP AND HOUSE COMMITTEES HOW THEY SHOULD BE RUN [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

CAMP AND HOUSE COMMITTEES -» HOW THEY SHOULD BE RUN As we have news-getting nets for trap- ping readable matter spread all over the Territory, we have been able to get an authoritative story of what is doing in the way of improving conditions of living, and though we cannot absolutely guarantee authenticity, we believe that the following report of a recent meeting held at a mess, which shall be nameless, mirrors the truth with substantial accuracy. The Chairman, in opening the meeting, said: "Gentlemen,-You all know that this is not the first attempt to amend matters of this mess. Other committees have been born to do this, and have died from chronic criticism, and quite suddenly. The pre- sent committee, however, is in business for business, and what it can't do simply can't be done. We intend to make mess- ing conditions fit for gentlemen, and to see that nothing happens here that is un- worthy of gentlemen; and though our task is not an altogether pleasant one, it has its happy m...

CAUSEWAY HALL SUCCESSFUL OPENING FUNCTION. MUSICAL TREAT FOLLOWS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

CAUSEWAY HALL --» SUCCESSFUL OPENING FUNCTION. MUSICAL TREAT FOLLOWS Saturday, the 6th of February, 19 26, will stand out as a permanent landmark in the history of social service activities in Canberra inasmuch as the result of many hours of unremitting labour in the service of the Community came grandly to frui- tion. In testifying to that splendid voluntary service, which has made the building of the Hall possible, one can do no better than to quote those lines appearing on the Souvenir Programme of the official open- ing of the Hall "Those few fine spirits that make all men's good Their goal, lighten this old world's sorrow, Brighten the promise of a glad to- morrow, And build the edifice of brotherhood." At one stage of Saturday's labours, it almost looked a sheer impossibility for the Hall to be finished in time for the opening function the same night, but by dint of Herculean effort on the part of the workers present, the Hall presented a fine appear- ance when the appointed h...

HEALTH NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

HEALTH NOTES -?- ? By "Sister." Asked in an examination to tell all he knew about teeth, the small boy said: - "We have two sets of teeth-the first we have when we are born, and the second we get from the dentist and they last all the rest of our life." Alas! if this wTere only too true, it sounds so easy and so pleasant; to be born, ready to bite-no teething troubles for either mother or child; and yet there might be fewer teething troubles and less tooth- ache later on, if parents would make a better start with the babies. If those little mouths were cleansed twice a day with a little glycerine and borax, so easy and so cheap to buy from the chemist. Buy it ali ready mixed, take a piece of clean rag or lint and roll it round your first finger, moisten it from the bottle of glycerine and borax, and rub all round baby's gums, in- side and out, up top and down below. This should be done twice daily, until baby is old enough to use a tooth brush, which is small enough to fit in his ti...

THE BOY PROBLEM. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

THE BOY PROBLEM. (To the Editor.) Sir,-What are we going to do with our boys? That is the problem which con fronts every father and mother wiio wish to make their permanent home here. Shall parents be able to afford them a better chance in life than was our lot. where our environment (especially in the case of those of us who came from a big city) forced us into avenues which not only cramped our ambitions, but placed many in trades and professions for which they were more or less unsuited. Here in Canberra it seems to me thai, we fathers of boys have unique opportu nities of affording our boys a healthy en- vironment, and a better chance to grow straight than in cramped cities; just as the saplings planted in the Nursery, if cramped when first planted, have to strug- gle hard for existence. So it is up to us (not to the Commission) to see that our boys, when they leave Canberra in later years, will take passports of health and character, which will give them an entry into any vocat...

TENNIS AT MOLONGLO [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

TENNIS AT MOLONGLO Sport was revived at Molonglo during the week end when the local Tennis Club was visited by a gent.'s team from Quean- beyan. Molonglo Club put a team of will- ing colts on their court, who were making their debut to the tennis world by playing their maiden match. Although they suf- fered defeat their hearts are large and their threats of vengeance on the other fellow at an early date should be disquiet ening to opponents but very cheering to those who are trying to work the Club to enthusiasm. A very pleasant afternoon was spent, and although the court sadly wants doing up, and is crying out for a roller, it is hoped that the Hilltop Club will be heard of a lot more in the future w¿th a strong team to take the field. The material is available to make some good players. .

TENNIS GOULBURN VISITORS IMPRESSED. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

TENNIS -# GOULBURN VISITORS IMPRESSED. A most enjoyable day was spent at Hotel Canberra recently when a party of leading citizens from Goulburn were entertained at a tennis afternoon, followed by dinner. They confessed themselves amazed at the great progress of the city during the past twelve months. The magnitude and pro- gress of the works exceeded their expecta- tions and it was inspiring to them to wit- ness first hand the "Vision Splendid" of the designers of a great capital city being so faithfully and quickly translated into a city beautiful of stately buildings of simp'e yet grand design, encompassed by beau- tiful parks and gardens. A most enjoyable afternoon's tennis re- sulted in a narrow win for Canberra, the final scores being 13 sets all and 125 games to 127. The tennis at times was of a high stan- dard, the outstanding players being Messrs. Poidevin and Norrie of Goulburn, and Rowse and Fitzpatrick of Canberra. In proposing the toast of the visitors, Mr. C. Daley, in ...

AS YOU SWING AROUND THE CURVE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1926

AS YOU SWING AROUND THE CURVE -A The road lies straight before you, aud it isn't always straight; Still upon your keen adventure you would fare. You feel attuned for action, and your questing soul can't wait; And to greatly do, a man must greatly dare! So it's hard ahead, old fellow, and just take things in your stride. Use your vision, and be careful of your nerve; There are nasty turns and pitfalls for the too unwary bide, Mind your paces, as you swing around the curve! Our brightly youthful ardour leads us off adown Life's Road. "In our lexicon is nd such word as 'fail.' " It's smooth upon the level, and down hill we've ne'er a load, But the twists and upward climbing tell the tale. So, it's hold stout heart within you, and go plugging on and on, And let ever your determination serve As the force which keeps you moving when mere motion would have gone, Brace your shoulders, as you swing around the curve.
