CAPITOL HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926

CAPITOL HILL. Â dance was held here some little time ago in aid of funds for the Soccer team. Sad to relate, it never had the support that was ex pected, so a smoke social was arranged to off set this unlucky start. The number of tickets sold for the latter has proved the success of it from a financial point of view. The Soccer team suffered its first defeat recently, but hopes to make amends at the next match. An uninvited guest has arrived in our do main in the person of Mr. "Flu," and the inmates will be much relieved when his un welcome attention ceases and he departs. »j

R.S.S.I.L.A. STRONG CANBERRA BRANCH RE-FORMED. Mainly as a result of the reunion of re terned men during the Anzac Day celebra tions, a highly-successful meeting was held at Acton Hali last evening, 10th May, for tbe purpose of carrying out the annual election of officers, and discussing matters generally affecting the welfare of ex-servicemen in the Federal Capital Territory. All returned men should realise the advantages which are to be gained by linking up with the Canberra Branch of the League. There are at pre sent a large number of ex-diggers in Can berra, who. if they have not already joined up, should immediately get into touch with the Hon. Secretary of the Canberra Branch, Mr. J. M. Orr, Accounts Department, Can berra, Now that the Branch has been placed on a sound footing, we may expect many more similarly successful functions as those held at Canberra during the Anzac Day observance.

SUBURBIA. WESTRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926

SUBURBIA. WESTRIDGE. Several of our residents have taken to noc turnal living as a" result of the establishment of a nightshift at the brickworks. The erection of four new cottages has given the village quite a "towny'1 appearance. Tennis boomed here for a while, but the interest seems to have fizzled out a lot. Barton's Safety Coach now includes the vil lage in its daily run. A couple of successful and enjoyable dances have taken place here lately, under the aus pices of the Ramblers' Football Club and the Catholic bazaar respectively. Football patrons at Westridge are well catered for by the Federal Ramblers, who have staged interesting games at the village this last four or five week-ends. The Ramblers ¡ire eo far unbeaten.

AT LAST BOXING AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926

AT LAST BOXING AT CANBERRA. It Avili be of great interest to readers to know that the first boxing contest to be held in Canberra will take place at the Causeway Hall on June 17, under the supervision of the Canberra Fire Brigade Recreation Club, who have been granted permission by the Trustees ot* the Hall to stage the contests there. The main bout will be 15 rounds of two minutes, between two well-known men, Bert Horne, of Queanbeyan, and Jack Keogh, of Canberra, two good boys who both possess a hefty punch. Horne is very well known in all branches of sport, and as a boxer his record speaks for itself, amongst his victims being Billy Blackall, Joe Green, Billy Edwards and Bill Butler.

CANBERRA CLUB JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926

CANBERRA CLUB JOTTINGS. The Canberra Club, having challenged the Molonglo team for the Comino Cup, the match was played on Saturday, 29th May, at the Queanbeyan Park, in beautiful weather. Dur ing the first half both sides were evenly matched, and no scores resulted. The second half was Canberra's downfall, as their cap tain, Harry Bingeman, and a very good player, hurt his knee, and for the rest of the game was useless. As a result of errors on the part of two of Canberra's players in omit ting to force the ball when behind their own goals, Molonglo was able to beat Canberra for the ball, thereby scoring two easy tries. However, the match was a good game, and most interesting throughout, and ended in the best-trained team, Molonglo, winning by ll points to nil. Training days in future for the Canberra K.L. Club will be Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m,, on the Acton Ground. All intending players' must be present.

OUR LEISURE HOURS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926

OUR LEISURE HOURS The old adage that "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy ' ' is particularly ap plicable to Canberra, inasmuch as the task of building a national city involves hard work and long hours of unremitting toil to every member of the community, and irrespective of the particular class of work in which he or she is engaged. On such an undertaking as the building of Canberra involves, much depends upon a con tented utilisation of our leisure hours, more particularly when it is borne in mind that - during the transitional stage there is an ab sence of many of the highly-developed recrea tional facilities that the older-established cities have to offer-and incidentally to which most of us have been used. This important phase of community content ment is world-wide. The League of Nations has long since realised the necessity for im proved standards on the subject of "The Utilisation of the Workers' Leisure," under which heading this important subject was set down for di...

INDOOR RECREATION COMMITTEE WHITE CITY HALL—CHANGE OF PLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926

INDOOR RECREATION COMMITTEE WHITE CITY HALL--CHANGE OF PLAN. At a somewhat late hour it has been de cided that this hall shall be re-designed as a community hall, probably similar in archi tectural characteristics to that erected at the Causeway. The reason for this is that the camp is parfly situated on land on which the National Museum of Zoology is to be built, and as the construction of this building will shortly be commenced, the area of the camp, and the number of men occupying it, will be proportionately reduced. It would there fore be inadvisable to build a hall for purely camp purposes. A barber's shop and library will, however, be added to the present recrea tion room of the camp at the Commission's cost. COMMUNITY HALL TO SERVE ACTON, AINSLIE AND WHITE CITY. in place of the abandoned scheme referred to above, a community hall will be designed for erection on the site pegged out at White City for the use of residents in ali three centres. The plan of the hall is now being ...
