KEEP YOUR EYE ON GERMANY. Hohenzollern's New Home Near Locarno. The Hohenzollern family is preparing a new home on the shores of Lake Maggiore, near Asoona, less than two miles from Locarno, in Switzerland. Baron ^von der Heydt, a Dutch banker of German origin, who manages the fortune of, the ex-Kaiser, recently bought a vast pro nerty on Monte Verda. one of the most pic- turesque spots on the lake, and has since se- cured all the surrounding property, including a large number of magnificent villas. A gar- age has been built to hold eight motor cars, and the castle is being lavishly furnished. We draw our readers' attention to our ad- vertisement pages.

GRAMMARIANS ALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

GRAMMARIANS ALL. Newspaper men nearly come to blows at times over verbs, splits, etc., and apparently the "diversion" spreads afar. In America recently, a big man, vice-president of the Bur- lington railway, wrote a Press puff, saying: "Along the right-of-way is a tremendous area in which is produced two-thirds of the oats and more than half the corn in the United States." The traffic manager revised this, and substituted "are produced." The vice-presi- dent re-inserted "is." It was then decided to appeal to an educational authority. Chicago University said "is" was correct. North- western University said "are." Harvard fav- ored "is." A dictionary approved "are." The vice-president then wired to Princeton Univer- sity and the traffic manager to Yale. The re- plies arrived together. Princeton preferred "is," while Yale gave "are." A coin was thereupon tossed in the air. "Is" won. Is it any wonder newspaper men disagree, when such minds differ. The Canberra Highland Society have ap- ...

Canberra- A Centre for Science [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

Canberra - A Centre for Science By GEORGE A. TAYLOR, F.R.A.S., MJ.Ae.E. The opening of the Commonwealth Parlia- ment at Canberra by His Royal Highness, the Duke of York, calls wide attention to Aus- tralia's new capital city, which during the part of the year that Parliament is sitting will be well, in public notice; but something more is wanted to help to concentrate continued at- tention on Canberra, and so prevent any pos- sible "artificial" atmosphere that some critics consider it will hold, owing to the lack of natural facilities for general manufacture. Canberra should be the headquarters for other wisdom than the mere political. It should hold a great University or Science En- couragement Bureau which should be the world's greatest, for Australia has better pos- sibilities for success in that respect than any other nation. There are many reasons for that assertion, as the Australian holds a special faculty for research, and can quickly pick and choose from fundamental factors...

CANBERRA INVITATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

CANBERRA INVITATIONS. The official invitation card for the Canberra ceremonies is an artistic production, which will be treasured by each of the 500 invited guests. It is a folder card, containing four leaves, printed on heavy white art paper, and bound in blue with gold silk cords. On the first leaf, under the Australian and British coats of arms, are the words in artistic blue and gold old English lettering, "To comme- morate the establishment at Canberra of the seat of Government of the Commonwealth of Australia, 9th May, 1927." Overleaf, in a border of gold, is the main piece of the invi- tation-a delightful water color landscape of Canberra, specially painted for the purpose by Mr. Harold Herbert, and presented to the Federal Government. This water color was painted from Black Mountain, overlooking the Federal capital. It shows the white buildings of Parliament House, and the secretariat in the middle distance, the Molonglo River, wind- ing through Canberra plain, in the foregr...

McCaudle the Roamer THE MEAN "COCKY." (Continued from previous issues.) [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

McCaudle the Roamer THE MEAN "COCKY." By "Yarrum." (Continued from previous issues.) In last issue, MeCaudle's ability as an elo- cutionist at the drovers* camp-fire concert was fully demonstrated, and for days we wondered how young Jimmy Cashman reached his father's hut on the outstation of Ballandoolie. The travelling mob, of 12,000 wethers, had now become accustomed to their daily jaunt of six miles, nibbling each patch of verdure they could dwell on. In camp at night, when the drovers' rough meal was over, and yarns were beginning to pall, I would seek to draw "The Roamer" to give of his storehouse of bush ex perienees. "What was the roughest you ever gave a 'cocky,' Mac, when you were humping the swag?" I knew that McCaudle had, on a few occasions, tried harvesting around Warwick and Toowoomba, in Queensland. "I don't know about rough or the roughest," he replied, "but I had to give one or two of them plain English. And that reminds me," he said, as a reminiscent smile develope...

Constructional Activities at Canberra [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

Constructional Activities at Canberra Constructional, activities at Parliament House are rapidly nearing completion. Oper- ations at that building are now confined prin- cipally to the sandpapering and polishing of floors and to cleaning up generally.

"Yarralumla" [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

"Yarralumla ' By A. K. MURRAY. During their visit to Canberra the Duke and Duchess of York and staff wijl stay at the historic homestead of Yarralumla, which prac- tically has been rebuilt and renovated as a re- sidence for future Governor Generals. Again the question of "the correct abori- ginal meaning of the word" is asked by many. That question cannot be answered; we have tried every reliable source without success. Mr. Fredk. Young, the oldest foreman of con- struction work on the Federal Territory, was entrusted by Mr. Fred. Campbell to build the Yarralumla mansion to take the place of the old homestead, formerly owned by S'ir Terence Aubrey Murray, and later by the Gibbs family. Recently I asked Mr. Young if he had ever heard the meaning of the word and his answer was "No." He informed me he had often in- quired and mentioned that he knew "Old Nelly," the last of the blacks, who originally had their big camp near Queanbeyan. He had asked her the meaning of both "Yarra Îumla" ...

The Federal Authority A PLEA FOR A BIGGER AND BETTER DISTRIBUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

The Federal Authority A PLEA FOR A BIGGER AND BETTER DISTRIBUTION. By THE HOST. W. A. HOLMAK, K.C., Ex-Premier of N.S.W. Among the many things to bc symbolised by Canberra, is it too much to hope that it shall stand for a greater measure of Austra- lian unity? Australia at last has its capital: its "seat of government" (a phrase generally repudiated by popular instinct) as no longer dependent for house room upon the hospi- tality of one State, but is established in its own local habitation. This physical change in our governmental arrangements should surely coincide with the further changes which experience has shown to be equally ne- cessary. The twenty-seven years which it has taken to convince Federal legislators that some permanent resting place for the sole of their foot was necessary, have also convinced many that some reconstitution of Australia's scheme of government is needed, a redistribu- tion of powers, and a readjustment of parts which will lead not only to a much more ...

The Flight from Dalgety [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

The Flight from Dalgety Specially Written for this Issue by W. M. HUGHES, P.C., M.P., ex-Prime Minister The first session of the Federal Parliament at Canberra will open in a few weeks. Row long will it last? Will the Parliament sit in the winter at Canberra? Mr. Hughes deals with these questions in an amusing way in this article. MR. W. M. HUGHES, M P. There is a great deal of human nature in all of us. Even a saint roused from his slumbers in the dead of night by some on toward event, and, stepping upon a tack, would be hard put to it, not to give expression to his outraged feelings, iu words attuned to a bullock driver's ode to his refractory team. Doctors may speak eloquently of the bracing effects of a climate in which winter's snows cover the green earth with a fleecy mantle, and King Frost sails on the wings of winds that make Antarctica their home, for months on end, but they usually take care to do this when basking 'neath the cheerful sun or from an armchair drawn before t...

Canberra at a Glance. [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

Canberra at a Glance. DR. FREDK. W. ROBINSON, University of Queensland. [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED,] Within the next lew weeks it is expected that thousands of Australian*, if not tens of thousands, will be beeing Canberra, an i most of them for the first time. How shall they succeed in truly seeing it in the space of a few daysf Of course, one knows that globe- trotters can "do" a gallery of the world's masterpieces in a few minutes, and come away as ignorant as before. But Michael Angelo and Canberra have at least this much in com- mon that they demand attention, and well re- pay careful study with later appreciation. Here, then, I propose to attempt an am- bitious task-to sketch a picture for the visi- tor which will help him to see the real Can- berra, both the new and the old. First, let us find a point of vantage. There are nian}' such around the city site, that is one of its chief and most abiding attractions. But for a general view Canberra is best seen from the east, from the old...
