WOMEN'S COUNTRY CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926

WOMEN'S COUNTRY CLUB. The Women's Country Club, of which Mrs. Earle Page is president, enters on its second year. Its main object is to provide a rest-room for country women visiting Sydney. The club is nicely furnished, well ventilated, cool, and provided with all toilet essentials. It is purely non-political, and it is hoped to make it a residential club at a later date. Members can enter- tain their friends, as there is a good piano, and luncheons and teas are pro- vided at moderate charges. Condi- tions of membership can be obtained on application to the Secretary, 15 Bligh Street.

ORGANISATION AND CO-OPERATION THE SECRET OF SUCCESS. British Firm Beats German. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926

ORGANISATION AND CO-OPERA- TION THE SECRET OF SUCCESS. British Firm Beats German. British enterprise has beaten Ger- many in an order for the supply of steel barrels. The barrels were needed by the Shell organisation in England, the corporation which deals with the distribution of Shell motor spirit and lubricating oil. A German firm, offered to supply an excellent light steel bar- rel at 8/6; the nearest English price for an article of similar quality was 13/. Then a manager at the Shell headquarters said, "Let us see if we cannot do something by organisation and co-operation to gain this work for England." The Steel Barrel Company of Uxbridge was called into consulta- tion; a promise was given to them for an order for so many thousand with the prospect of a million or so barrels to follow if they could cut their price to something near to that of the Ger- man factory. They went away, re- vised the whole of their production, entered into contracts for the erection of new machinery,...

THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS. Lecture by Sir Littleton Groom, K.C., M.H.R. A most interesting and instructive lecture was given at the White City Camp Hall, under the auspices of the Canberra Debating Society, on Thurs- day evening, the 15th, by Sir Little- ton Groom, Speaker of the House of Representatives, to a large and repre- sentative audience. The subject was "The League of Nations."

CANBERRA LIBRARIES. Striking Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926

CANBERRA LIBRARIES. Striking Progress. Great progress has been made by   the Libraries Committee.   Quite recently the committee was reorganised, and now each camp and district has a representative on it,   much to the satisfaction of all con- cerned, and the better working of the libraries. The chairman of the Com-   mission, who is the patron, is greatly interested in the progress, and has helped considerably by his efforts and donations 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 to 8.30 o'clock. There are now 600 volumes, including 210 new books, a good achievement in three months, but the aim is 1000 books in six months. The member- ship now numbers 100, and each night sees additional. The camps are very enthusiastic, and one cannot speak too highly of the delegates who are the librarians in each cam...

TRACING OF AN HISTORIC MAP. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926

TRACING OF AN HISTORIC MAP. It is with pardonable pride that we draw attention to the portion of an historic map, the first official map of the Federal Territory portion, from the map drawn by Surveyor George Dixson, who was engaged on survey work in this portion of Australia prac- tically from 1837 to 1846. There is an original map in the Mitchell Lib- rary, Sydney. A friend of the editor, who in years gone by was engaged in survey work, but not in the Govern- ment service, had handed down to   him, one of these early maps, and fortunately preserved it. He does not desire his identity to be public property, and though advanced in years, took this tracing from the map showing from the southern portion all grants, and leases, up to 1843, of what is now Federal Territory, Canberra. With his permission, a block was made from it, and we leave our read- ers to judge the accuracy of historic articles published, from time to time in past issues of "The Pioneer." The veteran jo...

The Federal Capital Pioneer The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. APRIL 22, 1926. LABOUR'S REPUDIATION OF WALSH. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926

The Federal Capital Pioneer The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. APRIL 22, 1926. LABOUR'S REPUDIATION OF WALSH. "The Pioneer" started its career to prevent "the Third International"   having the right to say they had the first paper on the Federal Capitol. A series of articles was published ex- posing the attempts to wreck unions by Walsh, Garden, Johannsen, and Donald Grant. An attempt by a sec- tion who would place a halo on these gentlemen was contemplated by an in- significant meeting of sympathisers with disruptionists to boycott the "Pioneer," but that's another story— and a good one—because since then a few of them have shown a complete   "volte face." When deportation of the revolutionists was mentioned   Lang, Willis, Voigt & Co. took the revolutionists into their private rooms at Sydney Parliament House. The suffering wives and children of British seamen was their trump sympathetic card to play to the p...

TELOPEA SCHOOL. Basket Ball Ground Opened. The Telopea Public School Parents and Citizens' Association, Canberra, has provided funds for a new basket ball ground, which was declared open- ed by Sir Littleton Groom, K.C., Speaker of the House of Representa- tives, who is at present staying at the Hotel Canberra. Lady Garran started the game by playing the first ball. Miss Green, sportsmistress of the school then took charge, and the senior girls played one game, which was at times exciting, and evoked ap- plause from school partisans as well as the visitors. Among those present were Sir Lit- tleton and Lady Groom, Sir Robert   and Lady Garran, Mr. H. M. Rolland (president of the P. and C. Associa- tion), Mr. A. K. Murray (hon. secre- tary of the P. and A.). Mr. Henry, headmaster of the school, introduced the visitors. The school children were drawn up on the four sides of the playground, and one game was played. There were 420 children in attendance. Two tennis courts ar...

DEATH OF WILLIAM FLINT. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926

DEATH OF WILLIAM FLINT. One of the. oldest employees on the Federal Territory was drowned in the Molonglo River near Yarralumla on the night of April 28tb.. "Bill" Flint, as he was familiarly called, was hearty and well when he left his camp mates at about 10 p.m. He was employed by the Commission as horse driver. As he was fond of his horse, it is pre sumed he went looking for the animal near the river and fell down an em -bankment of the river. He was eat ing an apple at the time. Being missed from his work next morning,. Mr. Harry Wark, his ganger, made a 'search and found his body in the river all but his head being under water. Footprints indicated that he had mnade . unsuccessful attempts to climb the precipitous bank, slipped and fell back in the river. A piece of apple found in his throat probably lodged there during the struggle to regain a footing. The coroner, Mr. John Gale, J.P., after hearing evidence brought in a verdict of death from asphyzia.   Deceased,...

CANBERRA FORGING AHEAD. Substantial Progress at Canberra. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926

CANBERRA FORGING AHEAD. Substantial Progress at Canberra. The provision of accommodation, official and residential, for the vari- ous administrative staffs to be trans- ferred to Canberra in 1927, has been one of the most important matters receiving attention during the past month. Contracts have been let for the erection, in groups at Ainslie, Te- lopea Park, and Blandfordia, of blocks of cottages of brick rand concrete con- struction. Contracts are also being   arranged for the erection in the same districts of four two-storey boarding houses, each to accommodate approxi- mately forty persons. Office accommodation, additional to that provided in the Secretariat Build- ing, which is now complete except for some plastering work and external painting, is being acquired by the erec- tion, on a site on Commonwealth Avenue, within the Governmental area, of a building somewhat similar in de- sign, which will be known as the "Public Offices."

FIRE AT EASTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926

FIRE AT EASTLAKE A fire occurred at the old Co-op Stores at Eastlake about 3 a.m. on Wednesday, May 12. The premises at present are occupied by J. B. Young, Ltd., and the rear portion, used as a produce store, was com- pletely destroyed. Four of the em- ployees of the firm reside on the pre- mises, and it is presumed a spark from the fire they were using was the cause of the conflagration. An employee, Wm. McQueen, who was in an adjoin- ing building, hearing a noise, jumped out, and seeing the flames immediately got in touch with the Canberra fire brigade, who quickly turned out, but they could only seek to prevent the main building from igniting. The damage is estimated at £380—£240 stock and the building valued at £140. Sergeant Cook, of Canberra, ac- quainted Mr. John Gale, J.P., coroner, with the facts, and an inquest was not necessary, as it was purely accidental. Mr. William Kelly, manager of the Canberra Laundry, Ltd., is now at Canberra and has taken up his resi- dence at Ai...
