ANZAC DAY AT CANBERRA MEMORIAL SERVICE AT CAMP HILL. "O valiant hearts, who to our glory came Through dust of conflict, and through battle flame, Tranquil you lie, your knightly virtue proved, Your memory hallowed in the land you loved. ' ' These beautiful words were sung with fit ting reverence by a representative gathering of Canberra's citizens at the memorial service held at Camp Hill on Anzac Day. It was a bitterly cold afternoon, but des pite this fact, a large muster of returned sol diers and members of the general public made the pilgrimage to the rallying point at the «flagstaff behind Parliament House. The memorial service was arranged by the Canberra Branch of th« Returned Soldiers ' and Sailors7 League, and the fine parade of ex-service men was marshalled by the Presi dent of the Canberra Branch, Captain A. E. Jackson, M.C. A very appropriate memorial service was conducted by Revs. P. G. Ward, M.C. (C. of E.), W. Evans (Methodist), aa(* Hay (Pres byterian), the former gi...

FOOTBALL. AUSTRALIAN RULES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926

FOOTBALL. AUSTRALIAN RULES. Judging by the enthusiasm al'rèady display ed, the 1926 season promises to be the best yet. Three of the old teams-Federals, Acton and Queanbeyan-are again to the fore. Blandfordia has not re-formed,' but Red Hill and Eastlake are taking part for the first time. Manuka Circle being still in the hands of the" beautifiers, only two suitable grounds, the Acton ' Sports Oval and the Ainslie Reserve, are at present available, but negotiations for further areas are proceeding. Profiting by previous experience, the Fede ral Territory Football League, which controls the competition, is adopting more stringent methods to regulate' its affairs Its president this year is Mr. P.

Maxwell, Lands Department, Canberra, as secretary. , The Owen and Carnall Cups will be again in competition, and the struggle for them should be keen from the very beginning, as on Saturday next, May 15th, the season will open with the Federals, who now hold the Cups, ...

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

PHOTOGRAPHY. (By Focus.) Tlie vitality of photography as an amateur pursuit is remarkable but easily understood. Back in the prehistoric ages man scratched images of his fellows in the sand and rock, or drew with chunks of coloured earth. Later he learnt to mix pigments, and in Phidias' time had mastered the graphic arts eso well that reality was perfect in the semblances and beauty did but glorify Nature. The urge to depict was ever innate; in stinct, talent and much labour was and still are required to carve or hew, and the great desire to put in lasting form what he saw was the happy power only of the exceptional man till photography came. With the magic of light and its action on sensitive material developed, the ability to capture in a moment what the eye saw and admired, and with more or less superficial study, some serious reading, and the careful viewing of what was deeply studied, highly gifted individuals had done with brushes and paints, arrived the amateur's skill in mak...

HOME NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926

HOME NOTES. (By "Mona.") As apples are now well in season wc will treat with them in this issue, both as a diet and a preserve. As both a food and a medicine, an apple is a wonderful example. Professor McAlpine gives us a diagram, of which the following is an explanation in plain English: Suppose this apple to be the size of a large breakfast cup, and into this cup you put nearly half a pint of water and stir it. It contains, of concentrated food similar to that contained in au egg, half a teaspoonful; of fatty substance, like butter, a little less than half a teaspoonful; of sugars (both cane and grape sugar), two tablespoon ful; of mineral substance, as much as will He on a sixpence; of acids, a little more than half a teaspoonful; of skin and core, about two-thirds of a teaspoonful. Thus when we eat an apple we take a food which will repair the waste tissue in muscle, blood and bone. Children usually are particularly fond of fresh ripe apples, and can consume quite a quantity wit...

HEALTH NOTES THE CABE OF BABY. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926

HEALTH NOTES THE CABE OF BABY. (By "Sister.") And now we come to the problem of how, t< make the healthy men and women of th< future; how to order the daily lives of th< babies in order to keep them in perfect health and enable their minds and their bodies t< develop along the lines of good health and in telligence, so that they may become valuable citizens by and bye. And a baby can be so very healthy and give so little trouble-provided it is born sound ir wind and limb-if only it is properly managed and if only the mother and father are game to make the self-sacrifices necessary to give him a fair start in life. Babies do mean self-denial-there is nc doubt whatsoever about that-rbut then they are worth it, they bring such a wonderful lot of joy, and so many fresh interest« into life with their arrival. The baby in the average home, gets far too much attention of the wrong sort and too little of the right. From the day he is born he is pa...

RAFFERTY'S RULES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926

RAFFERTY s RULES. ! (By "Navvy.") A general invitation to» lovers nf the grand old: Rafferty rule3 drew an enthusiastic atten dance of seven to the meeting ¡called a week or two ago to establish this welcome addition to ? the sporting opportunities of the com munity. .Borne difficulty was at first experienced in selecting a chair nra», but finally reference was made to the rulebook, and after a. JHOCÇSS of elimination and exhausting ballot, provided by Rule 85, Mr. Surgrapes remained captain of his! fate and master of the meeting. The first motion submitted dealt with the name of '.the organisation. ; Raffertarian. O ' Monaro gave it as his opinion that there was a good deal of mispronunciation pre valiant in regard to the name; So far as he was con cerned, he had no time for those who pro nounced the "a" as in "iodine." The oldest records he was able to consult were the pink conies of the correspondence of Isaac ni Riàfti, who flourished about 500 anno mundi, and, indeed, claimed a...

CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926

CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS "Whatever is is wrong. What's done, Undo, Let everything be spun Anew; For we can say ah, swear on sight, Nothing we've had no hand in can be right." -Pope (revised). Having heard that some slight criticism has been cast at the planning of the city, the Editor decided to give readers a chance of showing where the faults lay and of suggest ing improvements on the city design. They were asked to make feasible suggestions only, and the Editor must confess that some do not come within this category. He has therefore decided to publish only reasonable suggestions, as it would be absurd to broadcast an idea in capable of materialisation. Here is a se lection : "Why waste land? Why not build upward and sunward? Let Australia improve on what America has achieved. On a few acres of foundation the entire capital could be im {>osed. Town built on top of town is no onger a dream, American genius has made it a reality. The ground floor of the city could contain the Houses...

SUBURBIA EASTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 May 1926

SUBURBIA EASTLAKE. With the passing of the holidays the usual progressive activity has been resumed here. A village pump has been established-a pet rol one. The non-existence of our hall will not now be so keenly felt, as no doubt the traditional custom will be observed, and "At even' as the sun sinks down, The residents of this great town Will regularly congregate And enter into keen debate On how the Federal should be run, And tennis competitions won, And whether Can or Karnbra's right, And other things requiring light. ' ' In the event of a deadlock, P.F. no doubt will provide facilities for arriving at a settle ment, at his Stadium. An up-to-date refreshment room has been opened next to the local news agency, and is fulfilling a long-felt want. The hall-mark of quality has been placed on this establishment by the village small boy-a connoisseur in hot pies-who says, "Too right, they're din kum.

SOCCER FOOTBALL. FORMATION OF A FEDERAL TERRI- TORY SOCCER ASSOCIATION. A well-attended meeting of enthusiasts of the round ball game was held at Eastlake Hall on 21st April, for the purpose of forming a Federal Territory Soccer Football Associa- tion. Mr. C.

EMPIRE DAY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926

EMPIRE DAY I must tell you about the bonfire on Mon day night. Beside our royal blaze all other bonfires paled into insignificance as the moon before the rising sun. At the allotted hour (7.30 p.m.) the head lights of numerous cars coming from all quarters focussed on Eastlake, slashing for a brief moment the stygian darkness as they took up their position around the block. In the centre loomed the mighty pyre, sur rounded by children-millions of them-and there were grown-ups, too, for whom fireworks have not yet lost their fascination. In the absence of Mrs. Goodwin, through illness, the mass was fired by Miss Grace Hays and Master Harry Trevillian (the enthusias tic young secretaries), after the National Anthem had been vigorously rendered by the whole assembly. Thereafter night was turned into day rockets, hungers, catherine wheels, jumping jacks, Russian candles and the like were sup plied in plenty to all-comers by the Commit tee, under the direction of Mr. A. K. Murray. Indeed...

CANBERRA GYMNASIUM [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926

CANBERRA GYMNASIUM The membership of the Club is steadily increasing, and the provision of gymnastic facilities at the Acton Hall on Monday evenings of each week is proving a boon to the young men of the district, as a means of keeping themselves fit. Apart from the seri ous end of the business in hand, some exer cises occasioned much mirth among the spectators. It has been said that, for mem bers of the Gymnasium, Tuesday mornings are almost as bad as "the morning after.'* Many of the budding gymnasts ruefully survey their bruises, and go stiffly to work as a result. The initial training is always pretty severe, however, and it will wear off after a while. The following officers were elected at the first general meeting held at the Acton Hall. President, Mr. G. O'Neill; Hon. Secretary, Mr. E. Waterman; Hon. Treasurer, Mr. B. Lucas: Committee, Messrs. E. Hall, A. Nish and W. McGowan.

PROGRESS AT CANBERRA.

In this building the National Lib rary will also be h...
