HISTORY AND THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

HISTORY AND THE PUBLIC. - The historians were lately in conference in England, and Sir Charles Firth dis- coursed to them on the writing of history in a key which they can hardly have found encouraging. He advised them to ascribe "the diminution in the number of readers of history" to various causes, the competi- tion of the novel, the newspaper, and popu- lar science, the triumph of democracy which despises the past, and a general suspicion that history is not "of much practical utility." We should like to know, the evidence by which Sir Charles Firth is assured that the number of readers of history has diminished (ob- serves the London "Daily Telegraph.")   It seems to be a matter of which proof is hardly possible. How can we decide whether the readers of Froude, of Carlyle, of Macaulay are as numerous as they used to be? All these eminent historians have gone into cheap editions which are still on sale, and they are to be found in every library. It is surely a doubtf...

THE COMPLETE GARDENER. STATEMAN'S LOVE OF HORTICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

THE COMPLETE GARDENER. -     STATEMAN'S LOVE OF HORTICULTURE. Following the example of his Ministeri- al leader, Mr. Austen Chamberlain has been confiding to the British people his private notion of bliss on retirement. Mr. Baldwin aspires to breed pigs; Mr. Cham- berlain more poetically to cultivate his garden. The tastes of statesmen have ever been various, (observes the London "Daily Telegraph.") Some of them, like Cicero and Lord John Russell and Mr. Gladstone were rather voluminous out of office Some of them, like Walpole and Palmer- ston, have been content with field sports. But there are good precedents for Mr. Chamberlain's love of a garden besides that which, with filial pity, he cited. Francis Bacon upon gardens is now some- thing too trite to quote; but, though the irreverent have suggested that his philos- ophic idea of a garden was rather too much like a German inn-keeper's, it is plain his love for gardens was genuine. The earliest statesman o...

A TRIP TO KOSCIUSKO [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

A TRIP TO KOSCIUSKO - Ideally situated as Canberra is, oppor- tunities offer for the residents and tourists who make Canberra their centre to visit several of the premier pleasure and health resorts of New South Wales of which Mt. Kosciusko, "the roof of Australia" holds a strong appeal to the desire of every sports- loving citizen to participate in the delight- ful experiences of winter snow sports, or "to get amongst the snow." In consider- ing trip of this nature, the questions "What is it like" and "What shall I wear," naturally arise. It is generally accepted that to be amongst the snow is to experi- ence intense cold, and that a lot of warm clothes are a necessity. On the contrary, all that is really necessary is a complete change for although actually the snow country is very cold, the low temperature is unnoticed in the exalted mood engender- ed by hilarious and energetic exercise. From Queanbeyan to Cooma, the road may be said to be fair, except for a series of deep culvert...

PHOTOGRAPHIC NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

PHOTOGRAPHIC NOTES - By "Focus" Canberra offers unique opportunities for the amateur photographer, both in pic- torial and historical record, especially historical. To those who have not been accustomed to developing and printing their own films, the isolation from the cities has many drawbacks—the delay in securing results when films are posted away, and more particularly the lack of advice as to the cause of failures. This section of the magazine is intended to give, as far as possible, assistance and advice to those who possibly lack wide experience in photographic work. Questions may be asked through the medium of this paper and will be replied to in the following issue, also prints and films may be submit- ted for examination, criticism, and in the case of failures, the cause of same ex- plained as simply as possible. It may be interesting, as well as in- structive, to deal first of all with a brief outline of the history of photography. The history of photography is a curious ...

WELFARE MOVEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

WELFARE MOVEMENT - While we expect to provide our readers with a varied news diet, the principal course will always be welfare matters. This column will inform you from time to time of what is being done and what may be expected will be done to promote all our interests. It happens that our first issue appears some weeks after the inauguration of the movement by the Commission, and as de- tails of the proceedings at the initial meet- ing have already appeared in our con- temporary "The Federal Capital Pioneer" it will be unnecessary to repeat the ac-   count. The limitation of space in that issue, however, precluded the publication of the names of members of the Committees appointed, and opportunity is now taken to publish those for general information. The ladies and gentlemen, whose names appear below, are all keenly interested in welfare, and it is strongly urged that the public reward their public spirit by sup- porting them in their work every day and in every way....

FOREWORD [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

FOREWORD - IT falls to my lot to say a word or two in "launching" this magazine of ours, and I say these words with some pride, a great deal of pleasure, and with even more faith. Who knows, or can say, what the des- tiny of this journal will be? All we can say now is that it is Ours, and that we   have brought it into existence to help our lives along, and that it will be largely what we make it. Now as to its purpose. In the first place, I want it to tell us in an interesting and regular way what the progress of our Social Service is, what our many committees are doing—realising that each committee and its workers are so busy on their own work that they will have little time to find out what the others are doing—tell us what is going on at Canberra, and what shape our work is taking and is to take. Then I want it to relate topics of general interest at Canberra, interesting to us but probably to one else. But above all I want it to create a "Canberra" interest—in our ...

OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

OURSELVES. - It is usual for infant journals to apolo- gise for their birth, but we offer no apo- logy, because we feel we shall be welcomed by the community here and that we may be of service in helping each of our scat- tered centres to develop closer touch with each other, and mitigate the disabilities of isolation. About a fortnight ago, His Excellency the Governor-General, Lord Foster, speak- ing at an Adelaide function told his audi- ence that he shared a belief held by many Britishers that the future of the British race lies in Australia and concluded an inspiring address with exaltations to Aus- tralians to co-operate in every possible way so that this country's destiny might be all that Australians hoped for. Surely we at Canberra may furnish one example of what may be done by co-oper- ative effort. We have a wide field before us and there is no reason why the expres- sion of faith by the Chairman of the Com- mission at the inaugural meeting of the movement in May last—that...

PROPOSED MEDICAL BENEFIT FUND [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

PROPOSED MEDICAL BENEFIT FUND -   The scope and benefits of medical fund are no doubt familiar to most of our read- ers, even those who may not have in the past been connected with an organisation where such a fund was in existence. It is, therefore, perhaps unnecessary to dis- cuss the merits of such schemes, which after all, are obvious. It is due to readers however, that they should be acquainted with the fact that a fund for Commission employees is contemplated. The question was first discussed in 1923 between the management and representa- tives of employees. Data was secured   from authorities administering similar schemes elsewhere, was considered by the Director General of Public Health, Mel- bourne, and later formed the basis of dis- cussion by him with a deputation of sewer construction employees introduced by Mr. L. O'Neill. The deputation advised the adoption of a certain scheme covering ad- ministration and contributions, and in June, 1924, the...

FLY-CATCHING FOR FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

FLY-CATCHING FOR FORTUNE. - There are some curious firms that thrive in summer selling a type of "live stock" which most of us would regard as pests— flies, fleas, beetles, worms, and the like. They do a large business with schools, laboraties, museum authorities, sports outfitters, collectors, and others, and em- ploy hundreds of insect hunters. There are several extensive butterfly farms in England where you can buy caterpillars, butterflies, chrysalides, and butterflies' eggs in hundreds of thousands. You can buy lovely butterflies for a few pence; but some specimens fetch fabulous prices. While a black-and-white swallow- tail butterfly is worth a shilling, an all- black specimen may bring you 63 guineas.   There are only 47 species of butterflies in England; 300 in Europe. But there are 700 varieties in Brazil, and 200,000 all over the globe. VALUABLE FLEAS. Flea culture doesn't appeal to one's aesthetic tastes; but the business pays (writes Victor O'Hara in the Lon...

CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS Some little time ago the members of the Rotary Club, Sydney, visited Canberra, and the President. Mr. Birks, discussed with the Chairman of the Commission a pro- posal for the establishment of a Troop of Boy Scouts at Canberra. The Commission has since been in touch with Mr. H. Mac- Allister, Director of Organisation of the Boy Scouts' Association, New South Wales, and the latter has now been able to ar- range to visit us and give a lantern lecture covering the activities of the movement, at 8 p.m. on Friday, 16th October, in the Acton Recreation Hall. All interested will be welcome, and it is hoped that on that evening a strong com- mittee may be formed to establish the movement. Our boys, as we all know, are, in com- mon with the adults, isolated in scattered communities, and the establishment of the Troops will serve to enable them to rub shoulders with each other, as all boys should do, and at the same time enjoy the benefits of the remarkably wide and thorou...

THE PROGRESS ASSOCIATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

THE PROGRESS ASSOCIATIONS - This column will be devoted to news of the activities of the various Progress Asso- ciations, some of which excellent bodies have been functioning amongst us for some time. CAUSEWAY. This Association, which is in its infancy, has already proved itself of great value to residents of the locality. At the inaug- ural meeting, which was attended by Mr. Kelly, representing the Indoor Amusement Committee, and Major Hutchin, represent- ing the Chairman of the Commission, brief addresses were given by these two gentle- men outlining the desire of the Commis- sion to assist in furthering the welfare of the residents of the Territory. The first scheme which was considered by the Association was a proposal to build a large recreation hall, with modern con- veniences, at the Causeway, on a "fifty- fifty" basis, the Commission undertaking to provide materials, subject to voluntary labour being found to erect the structure. At a subsequent meeting of the Associa- tion,...

CANBERRA BRASS BAND [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

CANBERRA BRASS BAND - The Band has commenced practice, and residents at Acton, it is understood, live only for Monday and Wednesday evenings, when Bandmaster McGuiness knocks the Band into shape with a view to its first public appearance, which is fixed for an early date. Mac. is indeed zealous in the Band room, and is so intensely interested that it requires all the persuasive powers of Bob Ellis and others to inveigle him into the 'bus at the end of the evening. Transportation to and from practices or- ganised by the Commission is working satisfactorily. It is some undertaking to assemble 20 bandsmen from the scattered suburbs of the City. The order for instru- ment cases has been given to Messrs. Allan and Co., of Melbourne; upon arrival of the cases, the instruments will be issued to the respective players, who will thus be en- abled to put in practice at home. Then must neighbours bear and forbear. The   Rev. Charles Surgeon was once asked if   a brass...

THOSE CANBERRA RAILWAYS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

THOSE CANBERRA RAILWAYS -     From time to time, rival meetings in Dead Dog Gully, Lost Cow Flat, and other places advocate the establishment of a railway line opening up the most produc- tive country in the world and ending at Canberra. Why should we not arrange a counter-demonstration? Imagine the tell- ing effect of the circulation of the follow- ing extract from this paper's report of the meeting: On Thursday last a very pretty meeting was celebrated at the Blandfordia Recrea- tion Hall, the occasion being that of a monster gathering of citizens to protest against the formation of a railway line from Onlaanoderooma to Canberra. The doors were opened long before the arrival of Wednesday's Melbourne papers, and, to allow its members to attend, the Grave Diggers' Union held a special stop-work meeting. This action placed the authori- ties in a quandary, as the failure of the self-starter on the new cash register pre- vented the machine from operating, and ...

EDUCATIONAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 14 October 1925

EDUCATIONAL NOTES - One of the most important responsibil- ities of the Federal Capital Commission is, and must always be, the education of the young Australians resident at Canberra. A progressive policy in education is a sure index of a country or a people with a vis- ion. Thus it is cause for gratification that the Commonwealth Government has erect ed a splendid modern school. This building (Telopea Park School) was actually the first public building of a   permanent nature to be erected by the Government in the execution of its policy   of pushing ahead with the construction of Australia's Adminstrative centre. To-day it prominently occupies a rising knoll, and proudly surveys other public buildings which are assuming shape. Early doubts expressed in some quarters as to the wisdom of providing such a building at this stage have not been justified. Few, if any, could be found now, who, in the light of developments, would decry the expenditure. It is safe...

CANBERRA BRASS BAND [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925

CANBERRA BRASS BAND -» The Band will cut its teeth so far as public appearances are concerned probably a couple of weeks after this issue is pub- lished. The Indoor Recreation Committee has been successful in organising volun- tary labour for the erection of the pro- posed Community Hall at the Causeway, and the Band is making its first public appearance at the site of the work on the day fixed for the effort. We wish the Bandsmen the best of luck for their maiden effort, and are sure that those of the community who attend the fixture will be pleased with the music provided for them. The Hon. Secretary of the Outdoor Re- creation Committee has communcated to the Commission the outline of a scheme which has been designed to cope with the financial requirements of the development of the Band. It is suggested that, subject to the Commission agreeing to subsidise the Band activities, a fortnightly contri- bution of 3d per head from staff and em- ployees would enable the continuous em- p...
