OUR LETTER BAG. BANKS FOR CAMPS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926

OUR LETTER BAG. BANKS FOR CAMPS. To the Editor. Sir,-May I be allowed space in your paper to suggest to the Manager of the Sav ings Bank that it would greatly benefit the community in general, and the workers in par ticular, if he could arrange to call on the vari ous jobs in company with the pay car, to give those who so desire an opportunity of placing money in the bank. A number of men squan der their money foolishly who would other wise put a fair proportion in the bank if facilities were available; but to have to lose half a day and tramp to Acton in order to bank the money is a big handicap. The plan of accompanying the pay car is in opera tion in' various places in N.S.W. and Vic toria, and might with advantage be inaugur ated here. Failing that, could the bank re presentative call at the various camus on pay evening? -Yours, etc., "THRIFT,"

A FUTURE STORY— UNFINISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926

A FUTURE STORY UNFINISHED. Away back in the twentieth century a beau tiful city was bein^ built. The work was en trusted to three eminent directors, whose task it was to erect a capital worthy of so great a country. Workers, both skilled and un skilled, flocked to the scene, and the different undertakings progressed with varying success. Wishing to learn the thoughts of those en gaged, one of the eminent men went one day in disguise about the works, "for," said he, "we must learn the true spirit that ani mates those whom we employ, for if the spirit of men be good and it is infused into a nation's work, then all is well." Near the walls of a great building then in course of construction the director came upon a man who wrought with brawny arms. In his disguise he addressed the workman, "Well, my man, what do you here!" "Forty four hours," surlily replied the worker with out looking up. Passing on the director came upon another man who cut stone with mallet and chisel. To this man th...

BACHELORS' BUTTONS. (Devoted to the Interests of the Residents of the Bachelors' Quarters.) Bags Ham and Teddy Proctor were sadly missed by some of the Old Brigade on Anzac Day. ft The Time'ees stood to their guns well on Anzac Day; all but one returned, and, we are glad to say, has recovered. ft We really want to know can Shoeing Smith Loughrey handle mules? Bombardier Fleming certainly has a commanding voice when on parade. We've all heard him. ft The Citroen that ran so sweetly with half its innards under the bed, now doesn't run at all. ft When does Sandy propose to stage another graceful exhibition? The appearance of Pav lova in this country must, we think, have a great influence on his next appearance. ft Was Ding Dong really rude to the ad monishing monk? ft When's the canteen to open? ft A petrol tin falling from a height of 30 feet, striking an object 5ft 8ins from the ground-what is the resultant impact?

WHITE CITY. Residents at White City Camp are very anxious to have the material for their hall so that the hall can be built before the winter sets it» The same applies to the tennis court material. We still have hopes that the mate rial will arrive before, long. White City will hold a dance in Acton Hall shortly, and a strong Committee will be in charge. With good music, a first-class sup per at popular prices, etc, we should have a big roll-up of well-wishers.

The hon. organiser, Mr. Bateman, will be glad to receive any help or suggestions towards achieving a complete so cial and financial success. »

ANZAC RE-UNION. "DIGGERS'" DINNER AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926

ANZAC RE-UNION. "DIGGERS'" DINNER AT CANBERRA. It is to be regretted that the memorable function held at the Hotel Canberra on Anzac Eve was robbed of unqualified success by rea son of the limited accommodation available for thc dinner. There is no doubt that double or treble the number of Diggers would have turned up to "fight their battles o'er again" had there been sufficient room to accommodate them. Firstly, the Canberra Branch of the R.S.S.I.L.A. must be congratulated on the manner in which the arrangements for the din ner were carried out. It is an appropriate testimony to the fact that the Canberra Branch has indeed "come to life." The menu card and toast list were excellently arranged, and during the evening pens and pencils were busily employed in re cording the signatures of those present. Captain A. E. Jackson, M C. (President of the local Branch of the League) pre sided, and was supported by Col. P. T. Owen, O.B.E., and Major J. H. Butters, C.M.G., M.B.E. Apologies for ...

CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS TROOP LOG 3BD, CANBERRA TROOP, BOY SCOUTS. (By Scoutmaster A, J. Paynting,) Following my last report in the "News," mention was made of the presentation of the first-class badge to Patrol Leader Jack King ston. Eager to follow the lead, two other boys are now waiting the opportunity to go on their first-class hike, and several boys are anxiously looking forward to earning proficiency badges, but cannot get them yet owing to the lack of examiners. The Oubmaster (Mr. Altrip) and three of the Scouts went down to Sydney at Easter, and on Easter Monday the Scoutmaster took out a small party of enthusiastic scouts and cubs for a day's hike. Starting out at a fairly early hour, we pre pared breakfast in the old camp ground at Acton, spent a pleasant half-hour in the new Acton playground, and then moved on to Black Hill, cooking dinner in the vicinity of the tanks. After dinner we followed the river for some distance, but owing to an approach ing storm, we hurrried homew...

To-day, when we meet together to com memorate the heroic deeds of those who fell on the shot-torn shores bf Gallipoli, who clung to those rugged heights for months, handi capped by the ineptitude of those in autho rity at Home, who had not foreseen the mag nitude of the conflict in which we were em broiled, and by their shortsighted policy doom ed us* to jthe worst of all tortures for men of action-waiting-waiting for the supplies of ammunition that never came, knowing that, limited to three rounds per day per gun, we could not advance, and yet held on wim a grim tenacity never before exceeded; who suf fered uncomplainingly the misery and pain of sickness and wounds inadequately tended, and died that our-homes should-fee inviolate. < To* day, when we call their heroic deeds to jiompry, let uç[ not forget the heroic women who gave their all - to the sacrifice ; mothers who saw their boys, hardly out of school ye...

EDUCATION COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926

-? EDUCATION COMMITTEE. "Observer" writes: "I think the following is a matter which might have some consideration by your Edu cation Committee. After all, we may be par doned for thinking there is something more than scholastic studies embraced in the term 'Education.' The subject of Technical and Continuation Schools does not seem to receive any attention. Why is this? The latter could be dealt with straight away; every assistance has been proffered by the teacher of the Telo pea Park School. The former might be dealt with by the erection of a temporary building later on to be absorbed in main or permanent buildings. ' ' [A meeting of the Education Committee is to be held at an early date, when the matter mentioned by "Observer" will receive further consideration. -Ed,]
