SOCCER BURNS v. CAPITOL HILL The Burn's Soccer team had a run- away win over Capitol Bill in their match on the Acton Ground on Sat- urday last. The meeting proved an in- teresting one however, for during the first half honors were easy and Capitol Hill, with the sun and wind in their "avor were able, to withstand * the Burns team's attacks, but thereafter, when the advantage was with the Burns team, the later pulled up point after point. During the. first half Capitol lilli did most of the pressing, with "the as- sistance of sun and. wind., but ,th? Jcfence 'of the Burns' was too good tor them. Burns was -the first to score with a be'autful shot, but soon after, Capitol Hill evened the score with a ;ood goal, the" scores being 1 all av half time.

SOUTHERN ROAD SYDNEY TO CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

SOUTHERN ROAD SYDNEY TO CANBERRA Visitors to Canberra by motor from Sydney have for some time complain- ed bitterly of the condition of parts of the Main Southern Road which they had to traverse. Large stretches of the road are closed owing to re- conditioning; which is proceeding. The road is one which will receive heavy traffic as soon as it is available, and the traffic between Sydney and Can-   berra alone will be a big factor. Extensive reconstruction work is being pushed ahead by arrangement between the Main Roads Board and the local councils. On this side of Picton, in the Wollondilly, Nattai, and Wingecarribee Shires, numerous gangs are busy at the various points. The Main Roads Board calculates that by the end of the year 80 miles of bit- uminous road will have been com- pleted between Sydney and Goulburn a total distance of 133 miles-and that, in addition, 20 miles of road will have been re-surfaced, making 100 miles of first-class highway between Sydney and t...
