ENGLISH SPEAKING UNION VICTORIAN BRANCH Inspection of National City. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

ENGLISH SPEAKING UNION VICTORIAN BRANCH Inspection of National City. Pilgrimages to their Federal Capital City are becoming an increasingly pleasant feature of the outdoor activi- ties of many great public bodies whose ¡deas of their first national city are an index of the greatness and public char- acter of their respective movements. It is fitting that a branch of the English Speaking Union should visit Canberra in goodly numbers at this time when proof of Australian national sentiment is more needed than ever. The associa- tion's existence is based on ideas which are empire wide, and thus may see Canberra in its true perspective as the greatest Influence on thp, future of the Britisli Empire which .Australia will have. So 66 members of the Victorian branch of the English Speaking Union are seeing Canberra to-day. They left Melbourne on Tuesday afternoon by special train, composed of three first-. class travelling cars, and an observation and dining car, on the trip, which is to o...

THE FAMILY BIRTHDAY A SHORT STORY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

THE FAMILY BIRTHDAY .» . ? . A SHORT STORY i It ,-was s\vhilc ' he was sipping his ".otïee, holding tho cup in one hand and ils newspaper in the other, that Roland Kenny became 'aware of the silence it his breakfast table. With lils eyes listened upon the day's reports he mechanically attuned his cars to his .nunedjate environs. His thoughts were still mostly with his paper as he twnl ¿d his mental dials. Then he came ;o himself with a sort of a jerk. His cars had been greeted hy a com- plete uncanny stillness. Now the Kenny breakfast was not by habit a silent ceremonial. Four ¡mall Kenny's saw to that; foin ¡mall Kenny's and their mother, who ,vas mostly just a large small Kenny most of the time.. With this unac sustomed and utter silence ringing n his cars Roland Kenny slo\vly laid the paper down . Ho stared out ac- ross the table, his forehead furrow- ed with -lines ol puzzlement. First ho stared at Ins wife. Her smiling o: cs mci his directly, but her Ups uttered no word. Then, ...

TRAGEDY OF ARISTIDES NAMING THE BABY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

TRAGEDY OF ARISTIDES NAMING THE BABY I wonder If parents realise what a responsibility they aro assuming when they name their infants? J think not. Of course, it looks easy. The world is full of- names, and also full of male and female relatives who are alleged to bo gratified by having their Christ- ian appelations taken off, brushed .up, and fastened upon unsuspecting and helpless babies, It the name happens to bo John or "William, or Mary or Ellen, no great harm is done. But suppose you think it iwould please old rich Uncle Nlcodemus, or Aunt Hcpzibah, li your" little one were named after them. 1 beg- you not to do such a thing rashly. «Think of the child. Consider what it means to jro thro"<rh life dragging the name Nlcodemus after one like a->tornato eau tied vo u.ie tun of o. terrier. The case of a young man named Milliken occurs to me. That young man was cut off in his prime-through the -well-meant folly of his father. He might have been a worthy citizen. He mig...

FIT AT FIFTY ACTIVE AT SEVENTY AND HOW TO DO IT [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

FIT AT FIFTY ACTIVE AT SEVENTY AND HOW TO DO IT No one has yet found the elixir of life, but we have made great progress in the science of keeping young. The span of life is increasing with the lapse of time. Cave-men were old at forty, and died at fifty: in the   Middle Ages life was longer by ten years. To-day the average man should be in his prime at fifty, and still act- ive at seventy. At fifty the business man who has   won success is inclined to relax too quickly. If he does not resist the com- forts of wealth he will become unfit in the fifth decade of life. He will rust out instead of wearing out. The common causes of decline in   health at fifty are: (1) Failure to di- gest, (2) weak blood-flow, (3) germ poisons in the bowel, and (4) want of sleep.   Failure to digest results from faulty diet, eating too much, or both. There is an apt French saying that man digs his grave with his teeth. After forty we should cut down our...

RADIO SIMPLER SETS [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

RADIO SIMPLER SETS The National Radio Exhibition,   which opened at Olympia (London) on Tuesday, is claimed to be the greatest display of wireless instruments which has been seen so far.   Receiving sets for the home have   become the subject of increasing in- genuity and development. The tend- ency is towards simplicity. Sets that have a mass of screws and wires have practically disappeared, and many self- contained sets are on view. Aerials and "earths" and all other parapherna- lia are being eliminated. Portable in- struments are more frequent.

Building has already commenced while plans for many buildings have been prepared, and tenders for others have already closed. When the first subdivision of Civic Centre was offered on December 12, 1924, bidding was not so spirited as for other portions of the city. This was perhaps due to the fact that buyers then could not quite visualise the real importance of the locality. The fact that the railhead was near Eastlake made Eastlake appear ...
