SEVEN LITTLE AUSTRALIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 January 1925
SEVEN LITTLE AUSTRALIANS. Seven little Australians will be kept in comfort and care for 33 days at St. Margaret's Hospital, through the generous action of the pupils of Tottenham Public School, who, with the assistance of their teacher, Miss Knox, raised the sum of 11 guineas by means of a very successful bazaar. This practical form of sympathy for the babies is greatly appreciated, and the Secretary, whose address is 21 Macquarie Place, Sydney, is hoping that the New Year will see many more efforts of this nature. A shil- ling a day keeps a baby a day at St. Margaret's, and many more shillings are needed.
Overland Sports TRIUMPHS AT PENRITH SPEEDWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 January 1925
Overland Sports TRIUMPHS AT PENRITH SPEEDWAY. &nbsp; A remarkable demonstration of con- sistency and speed was given at Penrith on New Year's Day by Mr. D. Harkness in the Overland Sports Model Whitey II. Matched against all the fastest cars in New South Wales, the Overland Sports cleaned the programme by completely out- classing every car in each event. The 10 miles championship of New South Wales was easily won from the Vaux- hall and the Italia. The much dis- cussed Challenge Race between the Vauxhall and the Overland Sports resulted in an easy victory for the Overland, the 5 miles being covered in the phenomenal time of 4 minutes 51 seconds, which is a track record for the course. Overland Whitey II, the victor, is the successor to the once famous Whitey I, which some years ago beat the same Vauxhall in the Queensland Automobile Clubs Hill Climbing Championship. The Over- land referred to is a Special Sports Model and differs only from the famous Model 91 inasmuch as it ...

SUTTON ANNUAL SPORTS AND BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 January 1925
SUTTON (From our correspondent.) ANNUAL SPORTS AND BALL. The annual sports were held at Sutton on New Year's Day, and the weather being ideal a very good at- tendance was the result. There were visitors from all the surrounding dis-- tricts, and the events of the day were well patronised. The secre- taries, Messrs. J. W. Cartwright and &nbsp; G. A. McInnes, worked hard to make the sports a success and their labour was not in vain, for financially the sports were a record, the proceeds of which are to be devoted to the Church of England fund, which will benefit to the extent of about £60. The Committee desire to thank those who gave donations and other helpers in the cause, which resulted in the sports being such a success. The Soft Drinks Stall was attended to by Mesdames Cartwright (3), Miss Blake and Miss I. Bingley, and they netted £16/16/- for their trouble. The Jumble Stall was run by the Misses K. Hardy, Rowley (2), and Amy Cartwright. This realised £21 18/-. Mrs. Will...
Aboriginal Place Names and Their Meaning [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 January 1925
Aboriginal Place Names and Their Meaning (By G.B.L.) &nbsp; The first work dealing with the &nbsp; Australian aboriginal language to be published was issued in Sydney in 1827. It was entitled "Specimens of the Aboriginal Language," and was compiled by the Rev. L. E. Threlkeld. Since then the native language, am- ong other things concerning the Aus- tralian aboriginal, has received much attention from such skilled anthro- pologists as Sir Baldwin Spencer, Dr. A. W. Howitt, Dr. J. W. Gregory, and others. According to A. F. Cal vert's ""Aborigines of West Austra- lia," the most important of the na- tive dialects of Australia were Kami- laroi, Kailwun, Kogai, Rukumbul, &nbsp; Dippil, Turrabul, Turruwal, Wodi- Wodi, and Waradgeri. The last named of these dialects was in use in the Murrumbidgee and Lachlan areas. The following words all mean kangaroo in the various dialects, and serve to show how different one tongue is from another: Bargu, boo- roo, koorooman, bam...

Vulcan Trucks SUPERIOR BRITISH PRODUCTION [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 January 1925
Vulcan Trucks: SUPERIOR BRITISH PRODUCTION With the tremendous expansion which must take place at the Federal Capital during the present year, and the extraordinary amount of building work going on in and around. Quean beyan, which will be intensified when the laying down of the new water sup ply commences, it is to be 'expected that those running transportation businesses should be looking around for efficient vehicles to deal with the large increase of work which will gravitate to the man who shows he can handle his enterprise as it should be handled, giving prompt deliveries all the time. Contractors and others re quiring transport are naturally adverse to having their work held up through lack of proper plant on the part of the carrying contractor. Recognising this, and anticipating the demand, Mr. J. Esmond, of the Queanbeyan Auto Exchange, has ar ranned to act as District representative for the famous Vulcan Truck, a Brit ish production of the highest class which secured full ...

EASTLAKE AINSLIE The Eastlake-Ainslie eoalition, after scoring on January 4th a decisive vic tory against Tuggranong B went out to Tuggranong last Sunday and over whelmed the tougher A side. On this. occasion,. however, the visitors also were a stronger side, being reinforced by several Canberra enthusiasts. Tuggranong batted first, Cunning ham and Maclean opening to the bowl ing of Jack Southwell and A. Nish. Southwell's first over was a maiden, and from Nish's Maclean scored 5. Tl ugranong thereupon suffered dis aster, the wickets of Cunningham.

Qeutakbtyan a Canberra Rldvocate. Incorporating the "Queanbcyan Leader." Thursday, January 15, 1925. Shire Wants Own Offices The Yarrowlumla Shire Coun cil never owned chambers of its own, but it now looks as if they soon will. They have al ways cheerfully paid rent, and would have continued to do so, provided it was reasonable. The premises in which, for so many years, they have trans acted business are wanted by the Commercial Bank of Aus tralia Ltd. which has opened a branch in Queanbeyan and al ready occupies part of the building. This means that the Council must look around for fresh offices. When the Muni cipal Council made a move in the direction of securing new chambers for itself, it was thought to be an excellent idea to offer to house the Shire Council under the same roof. With this in view the Mayor at tended a Shire Council meeting and put the proposition to the councillors, who readily agreed thegrental mentioned being 25s a week for a couple of offices and use of the ...
FORD ELECTRICS AND FAULT FINDING [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 January 1925
FORD ELECTRICS AND FAULT FINDING The following observations are penned in the hope that they may save the amateur Ford owner many an irksome delay. If the starter will not turn the engine over, test the speci fic gravity of the battery with the hydrometer. If it does not give a reading of at least 1.250 then there is not enough cur rent there to turn the engine over and the battery will have to be recharged. If the battery tests O.K., then see that all cable connections are tight, inspect battery and switch leads to make sure that the insulation has not worn through in any place, causing a short circuit if touching any metal part, and make sure that the foot switch is making good contact when pressed. Inspect all cables'to see that there are no internal breaks. This is ra ther a difficult matter. Pass the cable through the fingers, slightly curving it as you do so. If the wire inside is broken at any point the cable will curve sharply at that point. Take off the Bendi,1 cover from b...

Motor Notes. STARTING DIFFICULTIES OF THE FORD [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 January 1925
Motor Notes. STARTING DIFFICULTIES OF THE FORD A good number of the start ing troubles which beset the Ford owner may be traced to the commutator. When any starting difficulty arises the commutator should always be examined. If the segments are not rough and grooved, and the roller is in good shape, oil and replace. Assured that the timer is not at fault, you may next examine and adjust the spark plugs. Don't take it for granted that they are not broken. Take them apart and see and know that they are all right. The spark coils should be next examined. And one can not too strongly emphasise the importance of properly ad justed points. There are a good many me chanics who believe that if a Ford coil is tuned to shoot a big spark across a wide gap on a coil-testing stand it will work better in the engine. However, this is not the case, because too much tension on the trembler points will cause them to pit and burn easily, the motor will not idle properly, .and will be hard to start. Th...
