INCIDENTS IN THE LIFE OF TROOPER AINSLIE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926
INCIDENTS IN THE LIFE OF TROOPER AINSLIE. [As promised in last issue, Mr. Henry Selkirk, F.R.A.H.S., has contri- buted the following historical and most interesting article on the early pion- eer and veteran of the Battle of &nbsp; Waterloo. Again, we thank Mr. Sel- kirk for his research work, adding, as it does, to the early history of our Federal Territory, taken from official documents. Next month Mr. Selkirk will deal with some facts about Mr. J. J. Moore.—Ed. "Pioneer."] The Living Ainslie. One of the outstanding natural feat- tres of the Federal capital (Canberra) &nbsp; is Mount Ainslie, a mountain of 2762 feet elevation, under the shelter of which nestles Duntroon, now the Royal Military College, but originally the old homestead of the Hon. Robert Campbell, the site of which bore the aboriginal name of "Pialligo." Mr. Campbell made his original settlement at Pialligo not earlier than the latter part of 1823, soon after Captain Currie and Major Ovens, in May o...
EMPIRE NIGHT BONFIRE AT EASTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926
EMPIRE NIGHT BONFIRE AT EASTLAKE. The annual bonfire and fireworks display was a complete success this year. As in former years, the senior boys and girls at Eastlake took the matter in hand. A meeting was held and a strong committee formed. Miss Grace Hays and Master Harry Tre- vellian again were appointed hon. sec- retaries, and Messrs. A. K. Murray and W. Tiller as president and hon. treasurer respectively. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The sum of £15 was quickly raised, residents of Eastlake alone were asked to subscribe. The boarders at the Engineers' Mess again were most lib- eral to the kiddies. Mrs. Goodwin, who for the past three years has lit the bonfire, was unfortunately, through illness, prevented from performing the ceremony this year. Mrs. Butters also sent an apology through stress of offi- cial duties. &nbsp; &nbsp; Willing hands had built a huge pyre and the mass was soon ablaze. The &nbsp; National Anthem was sung before Miss...
LIQUOR AT CANBERRA. Parliament To Discuss Question. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926
LIQUOR AT CANBERRA. Parliament To Discuss Question. The announcement that the House &nbsp; Committee of the Federal Parliament had passed a resolution that there should be a bar in Parliament House at Canberra led to questions being asked in the House of Representatives on June 11. Sir Granville Ryrie (N.S.W.) asked whether it was the intention of the Ministry to have a bar in spite of the fact that the area outside was "dry." Mr. Marr (Assistant Minister) said that an ordinance existed which pro- vided that the Federal Capital Terri- tory should be a "dry" area. Although the matter had not received the con- sideration of the Ministry, his opinion was that the resolution of the House Committee could not alter the ordin- ance, and that the "dry" area must apply inside Parliament House as well as outside. &nbsp; Mr. Mahoney (N.S.W.): The sooner &nbsp; &nbsp; you bring down a resolution "booting" that ordinance out the better. Sir Elliot Johnson (N.S.W.)...
AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926
AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL. &nbsp; By "One-eye." As the season progresses, the popu- larity of the Australian game is becom- ing more apparent, and its spectacular features have gained many converts from Rugby. The three leading teams are displaying a high standard of foot- ball, and between them should unearth an eighteen capable of extending Syd- ney's best. It is understood that an opportunity of testing local ability will be given next month, in a visit by Western Suburbs, the leading team of the Shapeless City. At the time of writing, Federals and Acton are level in premiership points, both being undefeated. Federals, how- ever, have a substantial advantage in percentages. Queanbeyan and Red Hill are next, each with one win, al- though, the bye has improved Quean- beyan's average. Eastlake has not yet won a game but its enthusiasm is at the highest pitch, and the unending stream of applications for the registr- tion of players indicates that its possi- bilities of extend...
UNIVERSITY AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926
UNIVERSITY AT CANBERRA. Answering Mr. Parker Maloney (N.S.W.) in the House of Representa- tives, the Prime Minister (Mr. Bruce) said that no definite decision had been arrived at in relation to the proposal to establish a University at Canberra. A conference had been held some weeks ago at Canberra, at which vari- ous educational authorities were pre- sent. When the report of that confer- ence was received the Cabinet would consider the position and arrive at decision.
RETURNED SOLDIERS AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926
RETURNED SOLDIERS AT CANBERRA. An enthusiastic general meeting of the Canberra sub-branch R.S. and S.I.L.A. was held at the Acton Hall on Thursday, 10th June, when it was decided to use every endeavor to make the Canberra branch a live one. Meetings will be held on the first Tuesday in every month, and a pro- gramme of social functions is being drawn up by the committee. Application has been made to the Federal executive for the proclamation of the Territory as a branch, and as preference to returned soldiers is given by the Commission and there are now approximately 2500 Diggers employed on the Territory, prospects are particu- larly bright. A club house is the next aim of the branch, and designs are being drawn up for submission. The following officers were elected:— President, Mr. J. A. McDowell; vice- presidents, Messrs. J. H. Honeysett and A. E. Jackson; secretary, Mr. H. G. Richards; treasurer, Mr. P. J. McNamara; auditor, Mr. I. Smith; committee, Messrs. Keating, Orr, Fleming...
NORFOLK ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926
NORFOLK ISLAND. The island, made notorious by Mar- cus Clarke's "For The Term of His Natural Life," as well as the history of "The Mutiny of the Bounty," is one of the outposts of the Commonwealth. The report of the Administrator (Col. E. T. Leane) for the year 1925 is just to hand from the Government Printer. There are still living on the island nine- teen of the original Pitcairners who landed on Norfolk Island in 1856. The oldest of them is now 89 years and the youngest 70. As the Administra- tor points out: There has been a great deal of romance written about these people, and they and their descendants have come to regard themselves as a special race, whose right it is to be cared for by others, without any obli- gation on their part to others. It is submitted that the time has come for them to face the obligations of ordin- ary citizens of the Commonwealth, with the same rights, and no more. Their descendants should be given to under- stand they have no claim to any spe- cial ...

TRAINING OF THE IMAGINATION. Lecture by Professor L. H. Allen. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926
TRAINING OF THE IMAGINATION. Lecture by Professor L. H. Allen. The following lecture was delivered at Telopea Park School by Professor L. H. Allen, of Duntroon R.M.C., on &nbsp; 15th May:— &nbsp; An appropriate definition of what is meant by the imagination is given by Shelley in "Prometheus Unbound." No man would be fulfilling his duty to the race unless that something at the back of his mind which was for the good of the race was utilised for such. The imagination may take many forms. Inventors must have a vivid imagination, as also the artist, the poet, the writer, the teacher. In the kindergarten, the educing of the child's ideas tends to build up the &nbsp; imagination. An aspect most notice- able, is a child's face when its imagin- ation was aroused was that of fear. The vivid portrayal of such stories as Red Riding Hood, The Three Bears, and other such familiar pieces aroused the imaginative fear. This might lead to injury were it not checked. The chil...

EMPIRE DAY AT TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926
EMPIRE DAY AT TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL. &nbsp; Monday, May 24, was a day of ex- citement for the senior pupils of the above school. The school branch of the Junior Red Cross Society were neatly attired, and the girls looked very businesslike in their Red Cross hoods and white dresses. The Boy Scouts of the school, as well as the Cubs, had donned their serviceable uniforms, and on the arrival of the visitors formed a guard of honor. The visitors included Mr. J. H. Butters (chairman Federal Capital Commis- sion), Mr. H. M. Rolland (president &nbsp; of the Parents and Citizens' Associa- tion), Mr. A. K. Murray (hon. secre- tary P. and C.), and Messrs. H. R. Waterman. J. H. Honeysett, J. Mil- denhall, J. Neville, and the Revs. Ward, Fletcher, Hain, and Vercoe, and a large number of ladies. The end wing was packed and room could not be found for the junior pupils, a fact to be regretted. Mr. H. M. Rolland was chairman. The proceedings began with the sing- ing of a verse of the...

ENCOURAGE THE YOUNG IDEA. &nbsp; [The following poetic attempt by a bright little girl of seven years was made spontaneously after attending &nbsp; Empire Day celebrations. Jean's hand- writing in sending it to the editor is &nbsp; meritorious for one of her tender years. There is a quaint poetic touch in her homely little idea.—Ed. "Pioneer."] THE ROOSTER KING. One cold day Mother hen did say To her chicks now you all sing "God save the Rooster King." Said the chicks, we'll sing "God save the Rooster King If you'll let us under your wing." —Jean Grundy. &nbsp;

WHAT McGRATH WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 July 1926
WHAT McGRATH WANTED. Mr. McGrath (V.) asked in the House of Representatives, in view of the great trouble in regard to housing at Canberra being experienced by civil servants and the great inconvenience to which members of Parliament would be placed, if Mr. Bruce would postpone the transfer to Canberra for 10 years. Mr. Bruce (Prime Minister) said that he regretted that he could not meet Mr. McGrath's convenience. (Laugh- &nbsp; ter.) &nbsp;
