THE COMMUNITY SPIRIT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926
THE COMMUNITY SPIRIT. "Fight, and, having fought, forgive, And if you can't forgive, forget." Elsewhere in these columns reference is made to the unfortunate contretemps which has occurred regarding the making available of the Causeway Hail for picture projection. No possible good can arise from further travers ing a field of argument-which field it is re grettable to record-has already shown signs of developing into several muddy patches. Just as there are two sides to every argu ment, the "picture" controversy practically resolved itself into the question as to whether the pictures should be projected by private enterprise, or on co-operative lines. Doubtless there are strong points in the views held by protagonists of either argument, but apart from their merits or demerits, the fact remains that the great majority of the people wanted pictures, and not delay. The hall itself is a monument to a spirit of co-operation of a unique kind; consequently it is a matter for regret that t...

IN THE KINDERGARTEN TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926
IN THE KINDERGARTEN TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL. How is the child's interest aroused in his work? Here is the secret. By correlation of subjects. By this is meant the linking to gether of different subjects by means of some common interest. This is achieved in the kindergarten by hav ing a weekly topjc, round which most of the work for the week centres. Such topics are taken, e.g., winter, the wattle, the sun, child ren of other lands, the farm, Christmas. Spring was the topic for the first week in September, and lent itself admirably to the correlation scheme. Talks were about the awakening life in all things, nature study consisted , of outdoor ex cursions and observing, the unfolding buds, the waking grub» and tile return of the birds and nest-building. Things' found were drawn " and modelled. The songs learnt and poems taught were about spring. Here, and iii the expression lessons, the need is the child 's own, he yearns to ex press himself through some medium or other, be it chalk, pla...
LIBRARIES COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926
LIBRARIES COMMITTEE. It is with much pleasure that we have to report the great progress of the Libraries Committee. Quite recently the Committee was reor ganised, and now each camp and district has a representative on it, much to the satisfac tion of all concerned, and the better working of the libraries. The chairman of the Com mission, who is the Patron, is greatly inter ested in the progress of the library, and has helped considerably by his efforts and dona tion of 66 books. The Central Library is now situated in quarters in the Social Service Building, Acton, and is open three nights per week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 7.30 o'clock to 8.30 p.m. There are now 600 volumes, includ ing 210 new books, a good achievement in three months; but the aim is 1,000 books in six months. The membership now numbers 100, and each night sees additional members. The Camps are very enthusiastic, and one cannot speak too highly of the delegates who are the librarians in each camp. Much goo...
"SHIPS THAT PASS" AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926
"SHIPS THAT PASS" AT CANBERRA. (By "Gleaner.") "Let's talk of many things, ships and »Shoes and sealing wax, and cabbages and Kings." Suppose we start with ships: rather an irrele vant subject for a mountainous district, you say. Well, you know there are various kinds of ships. There are the hardships the mar ried men endure in being separated from their wives. Some regard this as a blessing, like the Aussie cricketers; but alas! there are not the banquets and bright eyes and pink teas to rc gale us here. Then there are the friendships we make here. Strange how we meet people -I wandered up Ainslie soon after my arrival here, met a man sketching, and now he is one of my best friends. Then I wandered over Mugga one night, and a man punched my nose. He'a another friend. Gave a man the "good oil" about a race horse once, and he put his shirt on it. The horse dropped dead. Now that man swears by me-reckons I'm his best friend as Í gave him a "dead" cert. Then there are the courtships th...
INDOOR RECREATION COMMITTEE. CAUSEWAY HALL—COMMISSIONER 'S DECISION. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926
INDOOR RECREATION COMMITTEE. CAUSEWAY HALL-COMMISSIONER 'S DECISION. This was read and considered at the last meeting of the Committee, and a resolution was passed to thc effect that the Committee regarded the decision as an entirely equitable and satisfactory one, and that it should solve the difficult problem of picture projection at this hall. BOXING CONTESTS. Kr. Percy Douglas again waited on the Committee with a view to getting it to re verse its decision in connection with boxing contests. As a result of his explanatory elo quence tiie Committee; rescinded its previous adverse motion, and agreed to recommend to the Trustees of the Causeway Hall that ar rangements should be made for the staging of a preliminary display, Mr. Douglas undertak ing on behalf of his club to spend from £10 to £15 in making a suitable extension to the stage, and agreeing nfso to assist the Com mittee in defraying its debt to the Commis sion.

THE POULTRY YARD. TREATMENT OF PULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926
THE POULTRY YARD. (By "Chanticler.") TREATMENT OF PULLETS. What has been said with regard to liens applies equally, in so far as management is concerned, to pullets which are coming on to lay. As is well known to experienced farm ers, pullets of the previous season's hatching are most tricky and erratic in the way they come on . to lay and later break up into a par tial moult. The farmer who secures anything like consistent laying from his pullets during the summer and autumn months is. either a skilful manager or is particularly fortunate in having hit upon good practice with an element of luck attached. However, this view notwithstanding, a great deal of the so-ealled luck-good or bad-is in reality bound, up in the management of the birds. Feed and how it is- fed are important factors, but faulty housing is probably respon sible for more trouble with pullets than any thing else. Thé most prominent faults in housing are:-(a) Placing too many imma ture pullets in one house; (b) plac...
MUSICAL REMINISCENCES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926
MUSICAL REMINISCENCES (By E.A.M.) At the Her Majesty ?s Theatre, Sydney, dur ing the Italian Opera season, the conductor (Signor Hason) was taken ill, and had to leave the conductor 's chair, and handed the baton to the leader of the orchestra (also an Italian, who knew only two or three Eng lish words) to finish the act. After the cur tain, one of the members of the orchestra went to him, shook him by; the hand, slapped him on the back, and said', ** Bravo, Signor, bravo; you can't conduct for tripe!" The new conductor bowed and scraped, and said ' * T 'ank you very much ; t 'ank you very much. " Of course the Italians often have their little jokes against us. I remember on many occa sions when singing7 recitatives, instead of sing ing the words of the opera, they carried on funny conversations with Italian members of the orchestra; talked about and made fun of the orchestra, and the good old public encored them and said after the show; "I love the opera sung in italian, it seeftts...
