CUP WINNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
CUP WINNER8. At the recent Combined Schools Sports, Mr. H. M. Rolland, President, presented two cups for the girl and boy winning the most points during the day. They were won respectively by Miss Lily Welch of Duntroon Public School, and Master Allan Mc- Clung of Hall School. Mr. Rolland, accompanied by Mr. A. K. Murray, hon. sec. of the P. and C. Association, visited both schools on the eve of the vacation and per- sonally presented the cups, which tactful act was appreciated. The parents were present at both schools, and both recipients respond- ed in a few well chosen sentences, and Mr. Rolland emphasised that, though it had been a "united schools sports," Telopea Park School P. and C. Association had taken the respon- sibility, and he was glad outside schools had won the Cups. The children at both schools, at the call of the Headmaster, gave three ringing cheers for the donor. Mr. Jones, headmaster at Dun- troon, and Mr. Thompson, headmas- ter at Hall, in suitable speeches wel-...
ROBERT BURNS. A Reminder—January 25th, 1926. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
ROBERT BURNS. A Reminder—January 25th, 1926 (By Walter Scott) Robert Burns, Scotland's best and greatest poet, was born at Alloway, near Ayr, on January 25th, 1759. Now, on the 167th anniversary of the poet's birth, a little retrospec- tion on his life and works would not come amiss. No man has had more biographers than Burns, and at the present time few men have any original light to throw on him, either as a poet or as a man. I therefore attempt no new method of present- ing this familiar subject. No doubt the ways are numerous along which men are drawn to Burns. Some are attracted by his independence; some see in him a patriot of patriots. To some he is all that is truest and best in our Scottish character. Oth- ers, again, would claim him as their own—even as a protagonist of party politics. No poet of any land or age has had such obeisance paid him by suc- ceeding generations of his country- men. &nbsp; Wherever Scotsman are gathered together to-night, the memory of Bur...

DEATH OF SIR AUSTIN CHAPMAN Canberra's Most Persistent and Consistent Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
DEATH OF SIR AUSTIN CHAPMAN Canberra's Most Persistent and &nbsp; &nbsp; Consistent Advocate. &nbsp; Though practically an invalid for &nbsp; some considerable time, and through a warning from his medical adviser last year he resigned his office as Minister for Trade and Customs in the Federal Ministry, it came as a shock to the community when the news was telegraphed that Sir Austin Chapman had gone to join the great majority. &nbsp; Following on his popular victory &nbsp; by a margin of thousands of votes in the recent Federal election all &nbsp; anxiously looked forward to the ???l being set to his political amt ?oa, and that was to live to take his seat in the New Parliament House, Can- berra, now nearing completion. But that hope was not to be realised. "Sir Austie" as he was known and called by his intimate friends, pos- sessed a genial, friend-making nature. Mentally alert to every change of the political compass, with t...

REVOLUTIONARY PROPAGANDA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
REVOLUTIONARY PROPAGANDA. Mr. Tom Mann, presiding over a gathering at Battersea, England, opened with the singing of "The In ternationale," warned his hearers of the change that was coming. He urged the organisation of intensive propaganda. "This," he said, "in- volves unremitting and relentless war on the British Empire. To bring about its downfall we must attack Imperialism." The Communist M.P., Mr. S. Saklatvala, declared himself an implacable enemy of the Union Jack, and the British Empire. These men win their way to leadership cunningly and then set about a cam- paign of discontent, and leave misery in their train.
CHRISTMAS TREE AT EASTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
CHRISTMAS TREE AT EASTLAKE. Eastlake children had a right royal time at the Church Hall on Xmas eve. The residents, boarders at the Eastlake Mess and a few friends pro- ivided ample funds to purchase a suitable present for each child, num- bering about 100. The hall was tastefully decorated with floral sup- plies and snow effects, the latter the &nbsp; work of Mrs. F. Northam; little wads of wool strung together crossing and re-crossing the ceiling and walls among the flowers and greenery. The Christmas tree also was show- ered with the white dots, and Mr. J. Paul made it look like a fairy bower with the aid of tiny electric bulbs, scintillating like bright stars amid the foliage and bunting. The children were seated at 5 p.m. and regaled with an abundance of good things, sandwiches, cakes, etc., provided by the Eastlake ladies' com- mittee. Mr. F. Northam generously provided a quantity of ice cream, which, judging by the demand, was relished by young and old and in demand. ...
CRICKET NEWS. EASTLAKE V. AINSLIE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
CRICKET NEWS. &nbsp; EASTLAKE V. AINSLIE. &nbsp; A competition cricket match was played on Saturday, 16th instant, be- tween Eastlake and Ainslie on the latter club's ground at Ainslie which resulted in a win for Ainslie. The scores were Eastlake 192 and Ains- lie 200 for 4 wickets. The outstand- ing batsmen were Burke for Eastlake with 92 not out and L. Maloney for Ainslie with 73 not out. Ainlie pass- ed Eastlake's score during the last over of the day, and for a time the game was very exciting. A team from Canberra visited Michelago early in the month and returned victors. A full report was promised but did not come to hand.
CANBERRA SCHOOL SPORTS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
SPORTS The following statement of con- tributions received from private sources, and from the staff and em- ployees on Federal Capital Territory, is gratefully acknowledged. As the number of school children, and those not of school age, were in the vicin- ity of 1200, and sports prizes, and &nbsp; refreshments, and transport from all schools, near and far, had to be ar- ranged for, it speaks well for the generosity of the employees that the committee were able to provide the children of Canberra with a treat, at the close of the year, that will live in their memory and inspire them when they grow up to help the chil- dren of their time. To all collectors and subscribers the Committee ten- der their genuine thanks. The ori- ginal lists can be seen on application to the Hon. Treasurer. As some accounts are not to hand and others are being adjusted, a full financial statement will be made next issue. The surplus will be placed in the Commonwealth Bank, and as the "United School...
