"THE MIXTURE" [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
"THE MIXTURE" To get the best out of an engine, close attention mu.st be given to; the quality of the fuel mixture. It may be too leah, deficient in air, or rich, or may be of the correct quality, and thus give! the maxirnutn of, power with the loweslj fuel' consumption, ' and the least injurious effect on the engine.l Motprists \yhose aim is'to, reduce running: costs to t,he lowest point sometimes make the mis- take of reducing thç petrol supply too much by reducing the size of the jet, or by setting tthe carburettor to adm^t too much air. , ' > . ^ 'A Hetting such as'thls is noteconpm ical,, o,s the loss oi; power, makes it nece^ sáip''for the lower gears' to 'be 'used, rnpro oÇtçn, und, in ordinary, circum- stances, the throstle has to'be opened 'wider. .

RADIO IN SCHOOLS Departmental Viewpoint. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
RADIO IN SCHOOLS Departmental Viewpoint. A suggestion was uceiJtly made that the Education Pe pailment should hi oadcnst complete lessons fo'r childi en in country ( and subur- ban schools The view of the Education De- partment, however, is that the teacher, _ by personal contact, (can do the work better in ordinary cases, but that for special sub- jects, broadcast ad di esses are highly \aluable as an "ad- junct" to education. In an ofliciaf an- nouncement the, de- partment states that where radio sets are installed in schools, the headmaster is,en t'tled .to allow the children to listen to anv suitable matter which may be broad- cast, provided the school time is not en- croached upon. ^ As a matter of. fact, íadio receiving sets in schools aie I" of as much value to the parents and citizens »is to the pupils, 'be- cause special lectures of the kind which are not usually given in 01 dinnry lessons, aro of Interest to adults .1, well as to'children.

BÖWLS OPENING PLAY On Canberra Rinks AN AUSPICIOUS START Ideal bowling weather prevailed for the first play of the Canberra Bowling Club on the green at Hotel Canberra on Saturday last A large gathering was present for the opening ceremony of the Canberra Bowling Club on Saturday last. Mr. C. Francis, president of the olub, express- ed pleasure at the attendance, and ex- tended a welcome to merrioers and visitors. Mr. J. H. Butters, Chief Commis- sioner, regretted that Sir John Harrison, who was an expert bowler, had been called away to Sydney on the'eve of the club's opening. He stated that bowls was a gam'e which appealed to all classes, and should be welcome In Canberra. The federal Capital Com- mission was distinctly sympathetic to all kinds of sport, and welcomed the ad- vent of a bowling club. He looked for- ward to other bowling: greens being pro- vided, and more particularly to'the for- mation" of a bowling association, which would take over the responsibility of the greens ...

AERONAUTICS EARLY ATTEMPTS TO FLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
AERONAUTICS EARLY ATTEMPTS TO FLY. The first attempt to fly was made by in Italian monk, who was collated to m abbey in Scotland by James IV:- ¡n ho 16th century. The monk undertook to fly from the walls of Stirling Castle through the air to France. He actually attempted the feat, but soon came to the ground, and broke his thigh, an accident he explained by asserting that the wings he employed contained some »'owl's feathers, which had an "affinity'' for the dung hill, whereas if they had boen composed of eagles' feathers they would have been attracted to the air. Ballooning was discussed as far back as 1775, when Joseph Gallen, a Domini- can friar, proposed to collect tho diffuse air of the upper regions and to enclose .t In a huge vessel extending more than a mile every way, and intended to carry 54 times as much weight as did Noah's Ark. ?Equally fantastic methods of making heavy bodies rise put forward in thi same century are that swans' eggs or leather balls filled with nitre s...

IN THE GARDEN GÜADIOLAS. The gladlo) s Is one of the most sat- isfactory of garden bulbs; it ia cheap, and nothing- else grows and blooms so readily in arçy soil or climate. The gladiolus makes a display which for brilliancy and beauty of coloring1 few biilb3 can ei^ual and none »surpass. Plant from August to December In any fairly good soil.

AUSTRALIA EMPIRE'S CENTRE [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
AUSTRALIA EMPIRE'S CENTRE The weakness of Australia Is the overgrown city," said Dr. MacLean, of Edinburgh, when replying to a civic welcome tendered him in Geelong (Vic.) "In all ages- the overgrown el ty has been the graveyard of civi- lisation." Since coming to Australia he had found the people heie knew ev- erything, except how to advertise their 'own country. In Scotland, Canada was boosted. They never heard of Austra- lia, yet In Canada they had seven months of winter. The would like to see a population of 20,000,000 in Aus- tralia. Then the country would be fairly safe. To lrown upon migrants at this stage was pure madness. Some day Australia would be the centre of the British Empire. The day was coming when there would be 100,000, 000 people here, and England and Scotland would be mere appendages.
