SPRING [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
-'-?- . ? * - . ? L I z~ SPRING -6-;- , Tlie bright dominion of the Spring has come With leaf and bud and blossom in its train. The bee its sweet trade pl ie th, whilst its hum Proclaims its joy to be abroad again. Green festival hath caught up hill and plain! And those clear-throated choristers on wing Their glad infection spread, till we too fain would sing! Yes! Let us sing, if so our hearts would sing! Lugubrious looks insult fair Nature's plan. For us was spread her rich imagining. Seductively she seeks the. soul of man, Who were not man could he unmoved scan How amorous sun doth woo the comely earth, Whose beauteous blushes burst to brilliant birth. -BILLY B.
THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
THE POULTRY YARD -A By "Chaiittcler." Should there be enough space to spare in the garden a run for the birds can be provided it is fenced with wire netting at least six feet in height. The birds should be allowed out say on fine after- noons, thus allowing the mornings for egg laying. The earth should be graded to allow of drainage and care must be taken to keep the run clean and the soil dug up occasionally. STOCK. An effort should be made to secure from 6 to 12 pullets of a good laying strain to commence with, and light birds such as White or Brown Leghorns are best adapted for the semi-intensive system of housing. FEEDING. Sufficient mash composed of table scraps mixed until crumbly with equal parts of bran and pollard may be given each morn- ing, and eáfcerience will show the correct quantity in order that no food will be left to lie about after the birds have had a satisfying straightout meal. A tin con- taining water freshly supplied each morn- ing, as well as shell and flint...

"CANBERRA COMMUNITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
"CANBERRA COMMUNITY NEWS. A. -V What's in a name? This question seri- ously exercised the minds of those who attended the second combined meeting of the Welfare Committees when they tackled the task of selecting a name from the 90 submitted by competitors in response to cir; earlier public invitation. Some were humorous, some flippant, and many obviously adaptations from names of existing journals elsewhere. Not much time .vas occupied in tlu? v.oeding-out process, and the name íinally selected romped home by n substantial majority. The consensus of opinion underlying the selection was that the name located tho paper and described its functions. We hope that while many may think aiiothe.' name would have been more suitable, «lili more may endorse tho selection o: ihr. Committee. The successful competitor wan Mrs. C. Armitage, Ainslie, to whom our congratu- lations/ and the Commission's cheque for £2/2/- have been forwarded.

PARENTS' AND CITIZENS* ASSOCIATION -.- *-. ._ 'V There was a fair attendance itt the monthly meeting held at Telopea Par'-' School on Wednesday evening, 14th Oe«. Afr. C. Francis, vice-president, was in tl c chair, and handled the business in his usual urbane but expeditious manner'. The most important business transacted was the appointment, of an honorary secre- tary in succession to Mr. A. C. Cameron, who har, boen transferred to another cit v. There was only one nomination, that &lt;. ¡' Mr. A. K. Murray, and a pin might have been heard had it dropped after the rever brattan of the Chairman's call for other nominations ceased.

KEEP THE HOME FIRES FROM BURNING PICKLED PROPHESIES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
KEEP THE HOME FIRES FROM BURNING PICKLED PROPHESIES. A crack in your chimney is a sure sign that you are going to move. It is worse luck to look in a dark cup- board with a lighted match than it is to see the new moon over your left shoulder. When the wind moans it is extremely bad luck to burn rubbish near the house. If you smell benzine, and look for it with a naked light, it is probable that you are about to go for a long journey. If you have a pile of rubbish in your spare room or shed, it indicates that a crowd of people are coming to your house. The child who plays with matches will surely gain experience. A pint of petrol will cause a motor car to run two or three miles; a similar amount used in household cleaning may cause the Fire Brigade and the Ambulance to run the same distance. To leave the electric iron switched on when not in use indicates that you will have a surprise party at your house. To start the morning fire with kerosene is a pretty sure sign that you will bur...

A MANUFACTURER ON THE SCOUT [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
A MANUFACTURER ON THE SCOUT _?_ Tue Boy Scout is his own recommenda- tion, but it is interesting to note the view of a Works Manager of the Metropolitan Vickers Electrical Company Ltd., Manches- ter, expressed in the course of an address to students of the Sheffield University. This gentleman remarked: "It has been found that the boy scout becomes accustomed to factory conditions much more quickly than other boys, which shows that the general principles of deve- lopment of character, etc., as practised in this movement, are of national value, and it is suggested' that the principles followed in boy scout training might be studied, and the best of them applied to school training. In all cases boys should be encouraged to join the movement."

CANBERRAITIS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
CANBERRAITIS. -A_ -w . . . » Years ago we first heard of this com- plaint, and in the fullness of our youth and strength were quite sure it would pass us by. Experience is education. The old- est inhabitant, who was our informant, told us that it attacks most newcomers, and observation tends to confirm his state- ment. The cause is simple, and consists in the abrupt translation cf the city bred to con- ditions which, though full of promise, are not of course at this stage those to which most of us have been accustomed. The pageant of life in the old cities of th" Commonwealth ,has woven its grip upon our affections, and we miss it. The herd instinct, too, dies hard. There is some in- tangible appeal in the kaleidoscopic move- ment , of the metropolitan populations which subconsciously satisfies the need of the. city soul for atmosphere in which to move and have its being. The lure of cheap amusement in the cinema, the beck- oning of the theatre, the sea beaches, the ?> .IIJHIII ....

PHOTOGRAPHIC NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
PHOTOGRAPHIC NOTES -- By "Focus." The first person of whom we have any record who attempted to turn to account this property of silver nitrate, to darken, under the influence of light, appears to have been a German physician, Johan Heinrick Schultze, of Halie, who, in 1727 attempted by means of written characters upon a surface prepared with a mixture of chalk and a solution of silver nitrate to take copies from time to time on paper j that had been made translucent. Nothing | material was added to these results, until : in 1777 the famous Swedish chemist Charles William Schelle took up the dis- covery fabricius. By making use of Schelle's observations on chloride of silver, Thomas Wedgwood, the son of the famous potter, succeeded in producing a photo graph. He was however, unable to fix his pictures, which blackened and disappeared as soon as they were exposed to diffused light. Here we have most of the elements of the great discovery, the chief thing lacking being the power to fix...
THE PROGRESS ASSOCIATIONS EASTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
THE PROGRESS ASSOCIATIONS _?_ --w EASTLAKE. The above Association will consider at its next meeting a suggestion from the Commission to change the designation of the Association to that of Social Welfare Society. The rumour that a Public Hall is to be erected in this locality shortly has created general satisfaction and expectation. We expect shortly to be in the unique position of being a Progress Association without a complaint. On Friday, 16th October, a most suc- cessful social function was held in the local hall. Old-time dancing was indulged in, and songs and recitations introduced by way of variety. The catering was in the capable hands of the local ladies. Residents are busy developing their gardens, and, given good weather, veget- ables will soon be maturing. WESTLAKE. The roads in the (vicinity of Westlake require attention. The "Hostel" cricketers, most of whom hail from Westlake, played their first com- petition game against Hall on the latter's ground on 10th October. A...
CANBERRA HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
CANBERRA HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY -# At a meeting held in the Acton Hall on 6th October, a Horticultural Society was formed, to be known as the Canberra Hor- ticultural Society, and the following office- bearers were elected:-President, C. H. Gorman, Esq.; vice-presidents, Messrs. C. J. Weston, P. L. Sheaffe, and A. K. Mur- ray: committee, Messrs. J. P. Hobday, T. Reeve, C. Francis, C. May, H. H. Martin. W. Butler, and Mrs. Brackenreg; treasurer. Mr. C. M. M urden; and secretary, Mr. J. McR. Dunn. All the world loves a garden, and this Society should help to make this part of the world brighter and happier. We have much to contend with in the way of cli- matic conditions, garden pests, grasshop- per plagues, straying cows, etc., but by coming together and comparing trials and successes, we should reap comfort and enjoyment. At the inaugural meeting it was decided to hold a Flower Show on the 21st Novem- ber in the Acton Hall, and a comprehensive schedule has been drawn up by the com- m...
CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
CANBERRA _A. _ ,-^ The vision splendid hath possessed our souls And so, within our humble means, we strive To make each one his best achievements square with noble aspirations, till at last We shall behold the City Beautiful, The Mecca of Australian pilgrims all, The symbol of a nation's nationhood. On every hill fair edifices rise To welcome wayfarers; and deeper down The driving tunnels force their onward way. The ribboned roads' attenuated lengths Thrust here and there-and even farther out. And thus the fabric near and nearer grows To consummation of a high ideal, As morn by morn the raucous whistle shrieks Its call to newer labours and, at night, Proclaims the closing of another day. And may the worthiness of great enter- prise Bestow on all the grand occasion calls To live and labour in a nation's cause A glorious benison!-that down the years The city's chronicles shall but record Deeds featly and again more featly done, With naught of ill a sin erl P. naee to mar. -BILLY B.
