DUNTROON ROYAL MILITARY COLLEGE. LECTURE BY THE HON. W. M. HUGHES, P.C., K.C., M.H.R. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 September 1925

DUNTROON ROYAL MILITARY COLLEGE. LECTURE BY THE HON. W. M. HUGHES; P.C., K.C., M.H.R. Colonel-Commandant Heritage, of the A.R.M. College, seized the oppor- tunity during the visit of Mr. W. M. Hughes to Canberra to request him to deliver a lecture at Duntroon. On Saturday evening, the 5th inst., the lecture room held a large and repre- senatative audience from all parts of the Federal Territory. Mr. Hughes   chose for his subject "The Versailles Peace Conference."   Colonel-Commandant Heritage apo-     logised for Mr. Hughes and himself     being a few minutes late, but it was an act of kindness caused it, as he   had asked Mr. Hughes to look in to say a few words to the Duntroon   Sunday School children who were having a "soiree" in another building close by, and Mr. Hughes agreed.   In a brief address, Colonel Heri-   tage stated: "Mr. Hughes needed no ...

TENNIS. "THE GORMAN CUP." [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 September 1925

TENNIS.   "THE GORMAN CUP."       (By "Play Fair.") During the last few weeks finality has been reached with the knock-out round for the above trophy. Alto- gether four matches have been de- cided, and after even and interesting tennis, the Eastlake Club has the honor of being the original holders. Congratulations, Eastlake! The second match was between   Acton and Eastlake. Weather con- ditions were anything but perfect, certainly not favorable for good ten- nis, but nevertheless those who par- ticipated were at least pleased to     meet each other in friendly battle. The results of the match does not   signify the evenness of many of the   games, and it is reasonable to antici- pate much stronger opposition from   Acton Club as the season goes on.     The final scores were:— Fitzpatrick and Martin v. Rolland   and ...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 September 1925

ITEMS OF INTEREST.   Sir "Austie" Chapman would have felt that the glory was departing     from Canberra if he could have heard the following query. A party of Vic- torian college girls visited Canberra. They were shown the places of inter- est. Returning from Duntroon, and when near Ainslie, one young lady saw Parliament House in the distance and politely asked the driver of the char-a-banc, "Would you mind tell- ing me what FACTORY is that?"   Oh, the pity of it! He was too   dumb-founded to reply, "I believe it will be a Political Gas Factory." "Burns Club" Soccer football team have an unbeaten record for this sea- son; included is a victory in Sydney.   Mr. John Deans has another cot-   tage finished of the group he is   building, and two others building.

THE POTENTIALITIES OF CANBERRA. SPECIAL ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 September 1925

THE POTENTIALITIES OF CANBERRA. ---o--- SPECIAL ARTICLE. Few people in Australia at the pre- sent time know what a wonderful and interesting event is happening in their own country. While the out- side world is watching with the greatest interest the birth and pro- gress of a Capital City of a vast con- tinent, Australians are to a certain extent too busy and engrossed in their own affairs to let their imagination play for a while and visualise what is going on in their midst—what a vast country they possess, and what a glorious future the nation must have. In a few short years, Can- berra, with the great impetus of a Federal Parliament—the law-makers for a nation of a huge continent— with a potential population of a hun- dred millions of people—and the weight of the Commonwealth Trea- sury behind it, will be a vast city and the centre of all kinds and descrip- tions of manufacturing and trading activities. The next Parliament is to sit at Canberra; Parliament House is almost ready ...

AN HISTORIC DOCUMENT. Through the kindness of Mr. I. Meech, of Queanbeyan, the earliest electoral roll of the Yass-Cooma-   Queanbeyan-Braidwood district in on my list of historic documents. As   Mr. John Gale, J.P., is one of the very few living old residents, I asked him to give me his opinion of it, which   he readily agreed to, and I thank him. The following is Mr. Gale's opinion:— An Interesting Political Relic   Has been brought to light through the recent disastrous floods at Quean- beyan—a stiff sheet of cardboard. It     is headed, "A List of Electors for the Electoral District of the County of Murray, for the Year 1855-6," and it bore the signature, "J. F. Murray, Returning Officer," and was dated   "Police Office, Queanbeyan, 6th March, 1856." Particularised, it re- cords the names of 265 enfranchised persons, in alphabetical order, in the first column; in the second, the na- &a...

CITY BEAUTIFICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 September 1925

CITY BEAUTIFICATION. It is noted with satisfaction that the Federal Capital Commission has taken steps to beautify the thorough- fare running from Acton to the Ad- ministrative Offices near the River. Trees and shrubs now adorn both sides of the road, and the growth of these will before long lend beauty and welcome summer shade to this busy highway. The Commission is now laying out a footpath along the road, running under the shade of the avenue of trees located within the western boundary of the grounds of Acton House and debouching on to the rise opposite the Commonwealth Bank, where the scope of that area for ser- pentine pathways—overlooking what will be an extremely picturesque sec- tion of the City Lake—is being fully utilised by a garden layout. Thence the pedestrian is led by paths of generous width to the main entrance of the Commission offices' compound. Not only will this work add to the beauty of the neighbourhood, but will afford necessary protection to pedestrians duri...

The Federal Capital Pioneer. The Official Organ of the Australian   Federal Capital League.     SEPTEMBER 21, 1925. BRITISH PRESS DELEGATION.   Canberra, in years to come, when it has reached the proportions map- ped out by its designers, will enter- tain many notable and distinguished personages, but none will transcend   in world-wide power, for possible good for Australia, the delegation representing the leaders of the Press of our British Commonwealth of Na- tions who spent Monday, September 7th, at Canberra as the guests of the Federal Capital Commission. Lord Burnham, who is the leader of the party, aptly phrased the senti-   ments of the majority of the citizens of Australia at this critical time in our history, when he stated: "My   view is, that it is more important to direct the tastes and habits of a people than to make its laws." This   note strikes the right chord. We...

A SAD FATALITY [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 September 1925

A SAD FATALITY On Sunday evening, 30th August, Dr. Stoker, of the Military College, Duntroon, with Mrs. Stoker and Sister Mawson, after paying a visit to Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Russell, Narrabundah, were returning home when, on ac- count of the bad state of the road, in what is called Narrabundah Lane, the horses got out of control and col- liding with a stump the vehicle cap- sized. Dr. Stoker escaped with a severe shaking. Sister Mawson had her ankle sprained, but Mrs. Stoker was unfortunately fatally injured. The deceased lady, after making in- quiries as to her husband's state through the accident, and also Sister Mawson's, collapsed and died before Dr. Christie, who had hurriedly been called, arrived on the scene. The late Mrs. Stoker was beloved by all who met her at Duntroon. She was in the forefront of every movement for the betterment of social conditions; her genial, womanly, sincere nature, drew the bonds of true friendship and affection closer in her home life and her social...

PROGRESS AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 September 1925

PROGRESS AT CANBERRA. As the time for the transfer of Parliament approaches, construc- tional activity seems to be accentu- ated in every district. Eastlake, Manuka, Blandfordia, Acton and Ainslie all have their quota of trades- men making, so to speak, "two build- ings grow where none grew before." Development is also proceeding to- wards the centre of the city, culmin- ating on the imposing land mark   which represents the main reason for Canberra's establishment. Parliament House, particularly, is attaining, the attractive appearance which will make it the most promi- nent feature of the City. The whole of the brickwork and the greater por- tion of the external plastering have been completed and coated with white Medusa cement. Internally rapid progress is also being maintained. Brickwork, plas-   tering, carpentering, plumbing, join- ery, glazing, etc., have either been completed or are co-ordinating in     progress with the re...

CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 September 1925

CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUNDS. As readers are probably aware, the Childrens' Welfare Committee have been considering locations and the provision of equipment for children's playgrounds in various localities. We are now advised that the Chairman of the Commission has received a set of photographs and plans of the model playground and equipment established at Port Pirie, in South Australia, by the united ef- forts of the Broken Hill Smelters Proprietary Limited and their em- ployees. The photographs and plans indi-   cate a wide range of modern play- ground equipment, and these have been forwarded to the honorary sec- retary of the Children's Welfare Com- mittee for the assistance and inspir- ation of the movement. Readers may probably remember the wide publicity accorded the Port Pirie movement some years ago when the playground was established. There is no doubt the performance was a credit to all concerned, and if Canberra can do likewise, it may fairly claim to be in the van...
