Canberra Burns Club [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 January 1925

Canberra Burns Club A very successful concert and   dance, under the auspices of the above club, was held in Acton Hall on December 13th last, to close the year well. There was a good attendance and a thoroughly enjoyable   evening was spent It is a difficult matter, where so many took part and gave pleasure, to individualise, yet "Sandy" Alder, with his Scotch songs, received many a recall. Bob. Christie was a live wire; in addition to assisting well in the programme, he effectively led the community singing, which through his efforts have become part of Burns Club functions. Mrs. Kelly delighted the audience with her rendering of "Mary o' Argyle" and later on "Annie Laurie," for which numbers she received a recall. Miss M. Scott, with music from the pipes by Piper "Bob" McKay, gave a fine exhibition of the Scottish sword dance.   Messrs. T. McCulloch, W. Scott, C. Patrick, D. McIntosh and A. Hamil-   ton also helped to make the c...

Canberra Medical Benefit Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

Canberra Medical Benefit Scheme Enquiries have been made regard- ing the progress of the scheme drawn up by the delegates from the Pro- gress Associations and craft unions on the Federal Territory. A scheme was presented to the Acting Director- General of Health, Dr. R. L. Park, and after some correspondence, re-. vised until it reached the stage when it was practically acceptable. Mr. Fletcher, secretary to the Di- rector-General of Health, made a   personal visit, and stated it was ac- ceptable but—Would the B.M.A. accept the conditions.   We submitted the name of a fully qualified medical practitioner, who   was prepared to accept the terms, viz., £1000 per annum for attendance,     on 1100 employees then at work on the Territory, and 32/- per annum on a per capita basis for all over that number. At the present moment there are over 1500 men employed. The doctor mentioned is a member   of the B.M.A . So...

CANBERRA RACING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

The Federal Capital is quickly coming on. The latest move is the forming of a Racing Club. Those responsible for its initiation are old identities in the building up of Canberra—each in his particular line. The committee chosen at a represen- tative meeting held at Acton Hall on Wednesday, 21st January, can be re-   lied upon to carry out the functions of the club in a "clean sport" manner. The following were appointed:—Mr. J. C. T'ickner (of Hall), President;   Messrs. H. Edmonds and P. Douglas, Vice-Presidents; Mr. J. Force, Hon. Treasurer; Mr. A. Fleetwood, Hon. Secretary. They have made an early start and the race meeting held last Saturday, Feb 28th., was, a great, success.. It was held with the appro-   val of the A.R.C. of N.S.W.

The Federal Capital Pioneer. FEBRUARY, 1925. The Federal Capital Pioneer. The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. In another column will be found an article dealing with the Constitu- tion, Aims and Achievements of the Federal Capital League. The League has more than justified its formation. A glance at the names of those ac-   tively connected with it will prove it is not a political party of one type, but comprises every branch of com- mercial, industrial, political and so- cial activity. As a natural sequence the League has, through its Presi- dent, the Hon. Wm. Brooks, M.L.C., and its zealous Secertary, Mr. George Fitzpatrick, sent its congratulations and hearty good wishes for a pros- perous future for "The Pioneer."   Its desire is also practical, for out- side the local circulation of this young journal, 250 copies of each issue are ordered, and will be distri- butted from Sydney to the members   of the League.

Federal Capital League. WHAT HAS BEEN DONE. HISTORY OF THE MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

Federal Capital League. WHAT HAS BEEN DONE. HISTORY OF THE MOVEMENT. To Alderman Warbrick, formerly Mayor of Concord, belongs the credit of the inauguration of the Australian Federal Capital League. When Al- derman Warbrick occupied the May- ioral chair in Concord he secured the co-operation of other municipalities throughout the State and did much useful pioneering work.     In 1919 after Mr. Warbrick had left for Europe, Alderman the Honor- able William Brooks, M.L.C., was elected Chairman and has been the mainstay of the League since its in- ception. The first money paid to the League was by Mr. J. B. Young, who with Mr. David Benjamin, another staunch supporter of the movement, bore the whole of the inaugural expenses. When the League was started many of the commercial community were very apathetic and the Victorian peo- ple, who wanted the Capital kept in Melbourne, were very active. On the original committee were the   Presidents of the C...

SYDNEY AND CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

SYDNEY AND CANBERRA. Isolated from the world, starting with a little clearing in the wild bush and occupied by a mere handful of hardy pioneers, Sydney's initial pro-   gress was necessarily slow. Yet those early years until it became a city were a large proportion of its still youthful age. Withal it is the young- est off all cities to have a million in- habitants and it now holds proud place as one of the greatest cities of the British Empire, and well within   another thirty years, at the present     rate of expansion, even this popula- tion will have more than doubled. Concurrently with the growth of its population the increases in its land values have been phenomenal and both are still rapidly increasing. In the city, lands have sold for over £2,000 per frontage foot, business sites in its suburbs are worth hun- dreds of pounds per foot, and choice residential sites sell readily for large sums. Nearly all towns and cities thus...

Telopea Park P. & C. Association [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

Telopea Park P. & C. Association The second annual meeting of the Telopea Park Parents and Citizens Association was held at 8 p.m. on Wednesday Feb. 11th. The Presi- dent, Col. J. T. H. Goodwin, presided,             and presented the annual report, which showed that marked progress was made numerically and the wants of the school were constantly at- tended to. The President stated that pressure on his time and duties pre- vented him accepting the honour of being again elected their President, but his interest was still as keen in the School as it had been during the two years in which he had held office. After a vote of thanks had been tendered him, Col. Goodwin, through a prior engagement, left the meeting in the hands of Mr. H. M. Rolland. The election of officers for the year and a committee representing each centre of Canberra was proceeded with and the following were elected: President: Mr. H...

Items of Interest [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

Items of Interest Canberra scored a good many prizes at Queanbeyan Show. In the schoolwork section the children at Telopea Park School gained numer- ous prizes. Some have a queer way of express-   ing themselves. Heard this comment   on a certain ambitious gentleman "He climbs on the backs of others, sucks their brains, and then kicks them down." "The Pioneer" has come to stay, So send your news, and have your say. The bumper crowd, social spirit, and good programme at the Canberra Burns Club sports, proves that oppor- tunity is all the residents require to bring them together, and boost our Capital. Some thought the "Solo" motor cyclist was out to break his neck, and not records. The next society to be formed   should be a Horticultural Society from all centres of the Territory and arrange for a spring show, and in- clude other items generally featured at district shows. Tell our advertisers when you buy that you saw their advertisement in "Th...

Mr. Hughes at Canberra [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

Mr. Hughes at Canberra Mr. W. M. Hughes, during his re- cent visit to Canberra, made visits to the various works in course of construction. Among other places visited was Telopea Park Public School. After inspecting the kinder- garten class-room, accompanied by Dame Mary Hughes and Miss Helen Hughes, the headmaster, Mr. Henry, led the way to the large double class room where the older pupils were seated. The children rose and sang the school anthem. Among those present were Captain A. Jackson, M.C., and the Editor of the Pioneer. Mr. Hughes delivered a sound, practical address. A prize for the best essay on Mr. Hughes' visit and speech was offered later by one of the friends of the school. We have been supplied with the winning essay, and it is appended.

Federal Territory Tennis Association FUTURE PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

Federal Territory Tennis Association FUTURE PROSPECTS. The above organisation, which was inaugurated in 1923, has done much to advance the standard of tennis generally, besides creating keen in- terest to those who, devote their lei- sure moments to this line of sport. Tennis to-day is perhaps one of the most interesting and exciting games played, and it is worthy of the Fed- eral Capital City to have these sport- ing organisations created, to add to the pleasures of life of the pioneers of our Capital to be. Of cricket, Mr. M. A. Noble, one of the greatest players of all time, says cricket teaches you to be clean. The exercise and environment promote clean thoughts. It discountenaces boastfulness, shady tricks, and un- healthy practices and sets high value on quiet demeanour, gentlemanly conduct and modesty. And so it is with tennis. How many men or women who are keen follow- ers and supporters of the game who are not worthy of being included under the realm of good-fellowship? And...
