WHITE CITY CAMP RECREATION HALL PLAN APPROVED. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
WHITE CITY CAMP RECREATION HALL PLAN APPROVED. "Make work a play, And life's a holiday/' -Pope. SCHEME THE SECOND. The White City will be the scene of the next hal! building venture, under the auspices or the Indoor Social Service Committee. The scheme is not so ambitious as the Causeway enterprise, but nevertheless " 'tis enough 'twill serve," to paraphrase Mercutio, and we are sure 'twill serve the camp-dwellers well, too. The hail will have a stage large enough for dramatic and musical purposes, and there will be a ro*M»i for a library and debates what verbal fireworks will be let off there!-a billiard saloon, for the training of world-beat- ing cue champions, and a saloon where a barber can shave and hair-cut his patrons, and thus save them thc cost a fid inconvenience of a trip into a township that has strong enough attractions already. PLENTY OP HELP PROMISED. The camn has decided to do the work it self, and sufficient guarantees have been given that the labour offering is enu...

TABLE TENNIS FIRE BRIGADE V. WANDERERS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
TABLE TENNIS FIRE BRIGADE v. WANDERERS. The Wanderers* Table Tennis Club accepted the challenge of the Fire Brigade, and the match took place at Brigade Headquarters on the 15th February, when once again the fire- men ran out winners by 15 sets 106 games to 4 sets 53 games. The Brigade members, while being very keen on the game itself, are equally as keen that their visitors shall enjoy the evening, and with this end in view, no pains are spared to ensure that the social side of affairs are successful. Before departing, Mr. Hays, on behalf of the visitors, thanked the Brigade for the very happy evening spent with them, and hoped that next lime the teams met his side would Jie abie to turn the tables. He said, inci- dentally, it would be easier to do that than outdo the supper arrangements, as carried out by Mr. and Mrs. W. Maloney. "HOW WE BEAT THE DIE HARDS.'» (Anon.)

TENNIS AT EASTLAKE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
TENNIS AT EASTLAKE. To the Editor. Sir,-Seeing 'how badly your correspon- dent tipped the proceedings of the Eastlake Tennis Club, I feel it my duty to give just one or two facts. First of all, our motto and our aim "Believe not each accusing tongue As most weak persons do, But still/ believe that story wTOjng Which ought not be true.'' That's our idea of "Social Service" in spite of some contrary opinions. Then, as for our residents, wrc have one who, Í am game to state, has no equal else- where-he's our cheerful optimist, always looking on the bright side. However, if Eastlake doesn't win the Gor- man Cup, and We don't get two inches of rain within a couple of days, his reputation is done. 'Tis also said that the Tennis Selection Committee had to screw their thinking caps down hard to decide on the team to rescue that cup-the worst of having too much good material. Yours truly, "EASTLAKE."
SOMETHING LIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
SOMETHING LIGHT (By "Navvy." "Well, we could do with something light," said the Editor amiably, as we discussed a con- tribution from me for this month's issue. &lt; &lt; Light, ' ' said I. 11 Yes, ' * said he, &lt;1 Bush fires,' } said I. "No," said he? "between IIB-»nu-nu - oH-^-un--nu-«un--un-un -HU» nu-UH-.»mi->II«^- UM-TI ping-pong an«l radiators, the Fire Brigade has been overworked lately, and we want to take their minds off things a bit." ' &lt; Well, ' ' said 1, '4 wax matches. " " NO ! " said he. ' ' You'll raise a bit more bustle than you expect if you mention them." "Well, what am I going to do," I re- joined tartly. "You want light; I mention light, and yet you won't see the light. ' ' "Now, don't get excited," said the Editor ' ' Aeep cool. ' ' "Ha! the very thing," said I-"ice!" "You're mad," said the Editor agreeably, "I tell you I want something light and you give me ice." "That's right," said I, "did you ever buy a fourteen po...
CRICKET ASSOCIATION COMPETITION FOR THE DOUGLAS CUP AND PENNANT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
CRICKET (By "Silly Point.") ASSOCIATION COMPETITION FOR THE DOUGLAS CUP ANP PENNANT. The conclusion of the fi nal round of com- petition matches finds Hall in the proud position at the head of the table, an honour which, through consistent form, the team richly deserves. At the time of going to press the three teams to join the leaders in contesting the semi-finals are not known, as everything de- pends upon the results of thc concluding matches played last Saturday. Westridge, Northbourne, and Ainslie will probably fill the places, Canberra's only chance of in- clusion in thc final four being in the event of their defeating Westridge, and Ainslie losing to Duntroon. (As a result of last Saturday's games, Hall, Westridge, North- bourne, and Ainslie qualified to contest the semi-finals.-Ed.) A feature of recent matches has been the greatly improved form shown by McCarthy's, who, after a long run of non-success, have gained three good victories. McCarthy's defeat of Westridge was an e...
THE RIFLE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 March 1926
/T&lt;?*=rr=_nr..., -? THE RIFLE It is very gratifying to learn that the Can- berra Rifle Club has recently found sufficient enthusiastic "shots" on the Territory to re- form its old Club, and their activities should come as a blessing to all interested in rifle shooting, who find it hard to put in a pleasant week-end. The Commandant of the Royal Military Col- lege has kindly given the Club permission to use the Duntroon Range on Saturdays and public holidays. Under the guidance of the following officers, elected at the first meeting of the Club onFebruarv 2nd, it is hoped that &nbsp; the Canberra Club will become one of the strongest Clubs south of Sydney in a very short time. OFFICERS OF THE CLUB. Captain: D. J. Callaghan. Hon. Secretary: P. H.Rowe. &nbsp; Hon, Treasurer: J. O Reilly. Auditors: Messrs. S. Hardv, E. Paynting. Committee: Messrs. R. W. McDonald, B. W. Bowes, J. E. Geere, L. McLeod. The first shoot ot the Club took place on the Duntroon Range o...
WHAT IS WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
.w WHAT IS WANTED. A light-house, A bright house, - And afar from the city I say it must be, Unpretentious and tiny, But trim and sunshiny, Above it the hills, and below it the sea, A right house, A tight house, And in it the girl that I love, that loves me. 'Tis this that I pray for, And toil night and day for, But I fear 'tis a dream-house and never can be.

MUSIC. CANBERRA PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY. Tlie Musical Society held its first meeting last week, when the ïiame for the new society was unanimously voted "The Canberra Phil- harmonic Society." Mr. J. H. Honeysett (Social Service Officer) presided. Mr. M. Orr was appointed hon. secretary, and he was empowered to draw up a constitution, rules, etc., to submit to a general meeting im- mediately after Easter. The Committee will be formed from the various centres, a re- presentative from each centre to be nomin- ated by the members of the Society living in that centre; this will make the Society thoroughly representative, and should (en- courage much interest in the work. The only office-bearers appointed were Mr. J. IL Butters, president, and Sir John Harrison and Mr. C. H. Gorman, vice-presidents. These gentlemen were unanimously elected. The conductor, Mr. E. A. Mowle, in- formed the Society that he was in a position to state that one of the assisting artists at the first concert will be ...
CHILDREN'S COMMITTEE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
CHILDREN'S COMMITTEE Several meetings of the Committee have been held during the month, more particularly to -complete arrangements for the erection of the children's playground at Acton. This work, which was undertaken on 20th March, proved a success, a report of the proceedings appearing elsewhere in this issue. Mr. Mc Kinnon supervised the work, and it may be said, that Mr. T. Atkins, since resigned for health reasons, took an active part in organis- ing operations in the early stages of the scheme. The children at Acton are making full use of the facilities for recreation now provided for them. Messrs. Dickens and Mc- Gowan, the honorary architects, who designed the playground, have every reason to be pleased with the work, and the Committee, consisting of Messrs. McKinnon, Patrick, Scott, Murray and O'Neill, is also to be heartily con- gratulated on its achievement, and we wish to express the community's thanks to the ladies of Acton, who provided ample and varied refreshment. ...

OUTDOOR RECREATION COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
OUTDOOR RECREATION COMMITTEE. The Committee has been very busy of late in endeavouring to meet the growing demands of the community in regard to outdoor recrea- tion. Work is progressing on a number of pro- jects, and plans for further outdoor recrea- tional facilities are in course of preparation. The top-dressing of the Eastlake Tennis Courts has been completed; also the erection of a shooting shed at the R.A.M.C. Rifle range, Dun- troon, for the use of members of the Can- berra Rifle Club. The building of a pavilion at the North- bourne ground will prove a boon to cricketers and footballers alike. Work has already been commenced on this structure. The increas- ing number of football clubs necessitates further playing spaces, and at its last meet- ing, the outdoor committee went fully into the question of the allocation of grounds for the various codes of football now being played at Canberra. The " spadework ' ' in connec- tion with the establishment of the tennis courts .at the ...

READERS, PLEASE NOTE! [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
READERS, PLEASE NOTE ! The March issue of the "Canberra Com- munity News" went off like "hot cakes," a number of camps and centres disposing of the whole öf their quota on the day of pub- lication. We blushingly take this as an indication that our readers appreciate the efforts we are making towards adding to the popularity of Canberra's journal. For the May issue we hope to give readers something "out of the box," IT HAVING BEEN DEÖIDE!D TO ENLARGE THE JOURNAL BY THE ADDITION OF EXTRA PAGES PRINTED ON ART PAPER. This feature will enable us to give increased space to photos of local and topical interest. The addition of these attractive features cannot be embodied without a considerable increase in cost of production, conse- quently it has been decided to fix the price of future issues of the *'Community News" at 3d. per copy.

BACHELORS' BUTTONS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
BACPErJORS' BUTTONS. Daredevil McGowan is still alive, minus a few bones. It is not yet known which is the worse, the Goulburn track, the machine or him- self. Up to date we have only seen one eye, one ear, and portion of his face. He does not want to talk about it, and the doctor won't say anything. ft If in Sydney during holidays visit Tar- onga Park; if in Melbourne visit the Zoo and when you return, visit the Macquarie Street Zoo-it's free of charge and the per- forming dogs are marvellous. ft How does Dickens do it? He purchased a car, took it to pieces, put one-half back and the other half in his bedroom. The car is going better than when he bought it. There is one possible solution-he has moved next to the mystery room. ft Kriesler Pike and his violin have been missed since his departure from Gun Alley. However, his understudy, Allen Kubilic, is working overtime. ft For sale-swimming costume and water wings. Apply, room No. 29, Macquarie Street. ft Muir, the mushroomer, put u...
