CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS THREE TROOPS NOW FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS THREE TROOPS NOW FORMED. . Excellent progress is being maintained in the Boy Scout movement in the Territory, and the numbers of Scouts, Cubs and Scoutmasters are increasing steadily. The 1st Canberra Troop having lost a num- ber of its members through the formation of the 2nd and 3rd Troops, is again almost up to its previous strength, and the usual high standard of efficiency is being maintained under the watchful care of Senior-Scoutmaster Guthrie. Much is expected of the 2nd Canberra Troop (Duntroon), as a result of the recent meet- ing, when a strong Troop Committee was formed. Mr. Meadows has signified his wil- lingness to act as Scoutmaster for this Troop, the latest to come into being. The 3rd Canberra Troop (Causeway, East- lake), under Scoutmaster Paynting, are for- tunate in possessing a strong Troop Commit- tee. Although only formed as recently as last Xmas, the boys are doing splendidly, as the Scoutmaster's report will show. TROOP LOG-1ST CANBERRA T...
WHITE CITY DEBATING CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
WHITE CITY DEBATING CLUB A most successful meeting of the Debating Club was held on the 26th February, the sub- ject taken for debate being, "Is a Drastic Change in the Present Social System Feasible ?" Mr. T. O. Gorman presided. For the " af- firmative " Messrs. Sigsworth, Norman and Bones, whilst Messrs. McNamara, Thorne and McPherson battled for the "negatives." The chairman, in opening the proceedings, said he should first thank the delegates who had travelled some distance at considerable sacrifice and expense, and he predicted a good night's debate for the listeners. He then introduced Mr. Sigsworth, who opened the debate for the "affirmative," and was greet- ed with loud applause. He cleverly dealt with the evolution of society from the early ages to the present, and contended that there would finally arrive a time of scientific industrial management whereby the sulplus of wealth be- tween the living wage and the State expendi- ture should be more evenly divided among the wea...
OUR LETTER BAG [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
OUR LETTER BAG [Our readers are invited to avail them- selves of the facilities which exist under this column for the discussion of matters generally affecting the life of our com- munity. When forwarding contributions, correspondents must give names and ad- dresses, not necessarily for publication.] PRONUNCIATION OF "CANBERRA." To the Editor. Sir,-No doubt you have noticed the journalistic controversy at present going on as to the proper pronunciation of the name of the Federal Capital. Tn "Canberra's First Hundred Years," Professor Robinson, M.A., Ph.D., gives the following ruling: Accent first syllable pronouncing the vowel "a" as in "father," and slur the latter part of the word, thus really reducing it to two syllables. Elsewhere I have given publicity to this opinion. Unfortunately there are three different pronunciations in vogue throughout Aus- tralia, and as the one referred to is ap- parently not only correct, but also the most euphonious, even at the risk of being sus- pe...
BAND NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
BAND NOTES (By H. Howe, Organising Secretary.) The Band has been pegging along and at- tending regular rehearsals since my last re- port. The old pioneer "pluggers" still shoulder it along strongly. A very hearty and cordial invitation was given to either bands- men or sympathisers in my last report, but only a few availed themselves of the invita- tion. We had a deputation from the Out- door Recreation Committee along to a Mon- day night practice, and we went thoroughly into band matters together. The bandsmen quite appreciate the interest which the Com- mittee and the Commission are taking in our struggles. I believe the talk we had together will produce a much better feeling between the bandsmen, and the Committee, and Com- mission, and be a big help to us in the future. The band played at the opening of the Cause- way Hall, and a number of bandsmen took quite a prominent part in the big orchestra organised by Mr. Mowle on that occasion. The band also played at the Highland Gathe...

HOME NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
HOME NOTES (By "Mona.") AB our gardens are now yielding quantities of fre?h vegetables, a few recipes for serving them un as luncheon dishes may be welcome and make a delectable as well as seasonable meal: French Beans on Toast: String and cut in strips lengthwise some tender French or Epi- cure beans, boil quickly in hot water salted to taste. Have ready some hot buttered toast, cut in oblong pieces, and arranged on hot plates. When the beans are tender, drain, place on toast, and put on top of the beans a lump of fresh butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve very hot. Marrow and Cheese: Boil the marrow until tender in a very small quantity of water, or pteam it. When cooked, cut it in pieces and place in a pie dish. Pour over this some rich white sauce, and sprinkle with grated cheese Make it hot in the oven for a few minutes and serve. Curried Carrots: Cut the carrots in sections about an inch long. After thoroughly cleans- ing, boil until tender in salted water. Make a r...
FIRE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
FIRE A glowing bali shone through the copper haze That hung-a lurid terror-o'er the earth, Upshot reflected heat from travelled ways, Of gracious coolness was a cruel dearth; Hushed were the sounds of merriment and mirth. The hirds had neither heart nor throat for song, Their drooping wings refused to carry them along. An awful stillness spread athwart the land, A grim foreboding of impending ill, A something which men could not understand. Stark, ominous, the trees stood on the hill : Vague apprehensions did each bosom fill. Yea! everything was fraught with mystery, Breathing in all but words some great catastrophe. The flocks close huddled 'neath the mountain V: lee; Thc stricken wild things sought in pool ano1 creek A refuge from the heat's intensity. Men looked-their parched tongues could scarcely speak Mutely endeavouring the cause to seek. And even as they gazed, before their eyes The forest leapt to flames that licked the livid «kies. . i :i The devastating fiend, agape his j...
CAPITOL HILL [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
CAPITOL HILL The by-annual welfare meeting, held at the mess on the 8th February, for the election of honorary office-bearers, resulted in the elec- tion of Mr. Oillet as chairman, in succession of Mr. Barnes, who has since left the district. Mr. James H. Chadder was elected to the posi- tion of secretary, with Mr. J. Hyland as trea- surer, with a committee complete with Messrs. Foster and Bradley. CRICKET. Although too late to join in with the local association, the cricket team has been active, and although just a little depressed by a number of defeats at the commencement of the season, hard practice has brought them some well-deserved victories at last, which will probably mean a strong, eager team at the beginning of next summer. DANCE. The dances have been well patronised up to date, thanks to the splendid jazz music sup- plied by Arbuckle's orchestra.
SUBURBIA EASTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
SUBURBIA EASTLAKE. A successful meeting of the local Progress Association was held on the 16th February. Mr. H. B. Waterman was present by invita- tion, in the absence of Mr. Houeysett, Social Service Officer, who was unable to attend through illness. Many matters previously seen ' * as through a glass darkly ' ' were made clear by Mr. Waterman. After considerable discussion the meeting decided to retain its identity and continue as a Progress Association, at the same time doing all in its power to further the ob- jects of the Social Service Association by the appointment of delegates. Several matters brought up at the meeting were noted by Mr- .Waterman for attention. The tennis match with Canberra on the 27th February for possession of the Gorman Cup was instrumental in attracting a large crowd fit interested onlookers, who $were treated to tennis of a high order. An excit- ing finish resulted in Eastlake regaining possession of the coveted and handsome trophy. A proposal is being...
CO-OPERATION [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
COOPERATION (hf "Observer/') I have been, and am, much interested in tlie movement of the Welfare Organisation in Canberra. It is, to my mind, of a distinct order and departure from ordinary routine, for a brief search reveals the striking fact that this unique movement comes not from the toilers, directly seeking a betterment of con- ditions, but actually from that section of the human family, oft quoted by the "underdog," in no flattering terms, as "Bosses.'' I must confess to a degree of doubt, which at first exercised my mind, as to the alter- nate success of this departure from usual rou- tine, for I remembered that relations between master and man, or man and master, were not generally conducive to the handing round of bouquets. I do not, however, deplore the lat- ter phase one jot, for I prefer the man who always speaks his mind, and if he does some- times consign his "boss" by variegated ver- biage to a certain spot-well, no tourist has yet returned with any complaints. Tn t...
A GLANCE AT THE HIGHLAND GATHERING HIGHLANDERS—AND OTHERS—HAVE A HIGH OLD TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
A GLANCE AT THE HIGH- LAND GATHERING HIGHLANDERS-AND OTHERS-HAVE A HIGH OLD TIME. "The Highlander beats creation at money- making, lovemaking, musicmakingi, and playing the fool."-Ancient Historian Before an outrageous Highlander makes for us with his dirk, let us explain that 'playing the fool" in this connection merely means "merrymaking." What we want to convoy is that thc Scotsman puts all his heart and all his energy into pleas- ure when he is pleasuring. He is indeed a great sport, so, of course, the Highland Gathering was an immense success, for the Scotsman the world ^over never submits to failure, and whatever he touches turns up trumps. Therefore, all wrent well, and all that paid in their silver got the gold of a good time, and was money so well spent, that even the true Scot could not cavil at the return for his outlay. COME ONE, COME ALL. Needless to say Canberra took advantage of the chance to see so much for so little, and all the events were watched by a happy and la...
BACHELORS' BUTTONS (Devoted to the interests of residents of the Bachelors' Quarters.) [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
BACHELORS' BUTTONS (Devoted to the interests of residents of the Bachelors * Qua Hers. ) The House Committee, in their efforts to combat nocturnal high-jinks, for the peace of mind of nearby .neighbours, welcomes with delight the news that a representative of the "cloth" is shortly taking up his residence at the quarters. One good "kirk" deserves another. The major portion of the Citroen fleet has sailed for the smoother waters of the Hotel Canberra. ^ It is rumoured that the official magician has journeyed to Melbourne to obtain quotes for a further supply of streamers and white rabbits. It is said that Count Chervolet won us the Northbourne match, although a couple of local lady barrackers was heard to attribute their favourite's downfall to "that brutal Hirst." The Gorman Cup is missing from the din- ing-room. Didn't Ivo Rowse like the Dickens? ft Stromlo Clarke has put in a requisition for rubber heels. The superintendent of the Botanical Gardens is setting a new fashion in hats...
CAMP NOTES (By "The Gleaner.") [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
CAMP NOTES (By "The Gleaner,") To separate the unskilled from the skilled workers in the various camps appears an un- wise move. This is a democratic country, you know. St. Valentine must have the city under his special care-there was no dust blowing on that Saint's day. The postal arrangements at the various camps are most unsatisfactory. At present it costs about sixpence a letter. Could not the Commission arrange with the postal officials to deliver the mail to each camp in care of the camp steward, thereby obviating the necessity of the camp steward being absent when he should be guarding the property from fire and other loss, especially in canvas towns? Capitol Hill steward is to be commended for the care taken and the improvements in appearance by planting flowers, etc. Will other stewards please follow this lead, so that we may be able to obtain "bokays" for the girls when we go courting? White City canteen does a brisk trade, and this should encourage the installation of can...

THE MONTESSORI METHOD OF EDUCATION [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
THE MONTESSORI METHOD OF EDUCATION (By C.A.F.) Montessori has been severely criticised for her method, and it has been well argued by Kilpatrick in his book, "Montessori Examined," that the sense-training her child- ren receive has no general value, but is only specifically valuable; nevertheless, some of her material, such as the sandpaper and cardboard letters, and the long stair, has proved useful. Other exercises wlrch proved useful are the exercises of practical life; e.g., buttoning and lacing frames, which teach the children to dresp themselves. The children in the Montesorn children's houses are very capable and self reliant, waiting on the tables, and doing many things for themselves which children were pre- viously thought to be incapable of doing. Montesórri believes in three things-sensory education, which.has just been explained; free- dom, and self-activity. One cannot achieve success with the method without an apprecia- tion of this principle of freedom upon which it ...

THE STAGE "THE MAN FROM TORONTO" AT CANBERRA. CA US KW AV HALL, 27th and üíírh M AUCH. "% the Community; lu the Community; For the Community. ' ' "Thc whole estate, is left to the said nephew, Fergus Wimbush, on condition that the said Fergus Wimbush succeeds where he-the testator-failed, and marries you." The above condition in Uncle Ben's will brought "The Man from Toronto" across the Atlantic to call upon a charming little widow, Mrs. Calthorpe, at her seaside cot- tage home in Teignmouth, Devonshire. Mrs. Calthorpe lives the greater part of the year in Teignmouth, because her miniature in- come of five hundred a year will not per- mit of a luxurious town house in London. Wimbush has been preceded to Teign- mouth, however, by Mr. Priestly with the ('etails of this absurd will, and is received l y Polly Perkins with a message to the effect that her mistress has been urgently called to the bedside of a sick friend. Perkins, the perfect parlourmaid, is none « other than Mrs. Calthor...
