SURFACE WORKERS PRECIPITATE STRIKE DEMAND FOR MINERS' CONDITIONS COMPLETE CESSATION LIKELY NEXT WEEK [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

SURFACE WORKERS PRECIPITATE STRIKE DEMAND FOR MINERS' CONDITIONS COMPLETE CESSATION LIKELY NEXT WEEK AFTER little more than a week's work on the city sewer, another dispute arose to-day which     threatens a continuance of operations. The Industrial Tribunal, having granted the underground workers the bank to bank conditions which they demanded during the recent strike, the surface workers have now demanded the same hours. The brace men have demanded that instead of commencing work at 7.30 a.m., they shall start at the same time as the underground workers, namely at 8 a.m. and will probably be paid off. The surface hands ceased work at four o'clock this afternoon. They refused, however, to accept their pay until this morning. Instructions are understood to have been issued for the men not to be engaged on presentation for duty except under the terms of the existing award. The Federal Capital Commission will not negotiate with the men accept through the Indu...

X-RAYS ON THE BAG HEAP. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

X-RAYS ON THE BAG HEAP. Every now and then new uses are being found for X-rays. One of the most recent is for the examination of rags. Old rags contain numbers of metal and bone buttons, hooks, eyes and so on, which damage the machine in which they are ground to pulp for making paper. The rags are now being passed along endless bands which move over an X-ray tube, and any hard objects, such as buttons, are distinctly seen on a screen just above the band. An operator stands over the screen and rejects from the band any material containing buttons. An- other, use for the X-rays has been lately found at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, Middlesex, where clinical thermometers are being tested with them. These thermomet- ers have to be very accurate, and a good deal depends on a special kind of glass being used. Unsuitable glass can be detected in an instant with the X-rays.

LIQUOR AT CANBERRA Presbyterian Decisions MELBOURNE, Thursday. "I hope that Parliament within its own building will be loyal to the reso- lution of the people of Canberra if they   decide at the proposed referendm to   prohibit the sale of liquor," said the Rev. Professor R. G. Macintyre in a discussion on local option at Canberra       at the Presbyterian General Assembly.   The Rev. G. S.

CIVIC CENTRE The Collonade FIRST STRUCTURE APPEARS [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

CIVIC CENTRE The Collonade FIRST STRUCTURE APPEARS A few days have brought about a visible change in the buildings which have been commenced at Civic Centre, and the first portion of the collonade has begun to assume shape. Yesterday, two buildings which were being erected on leases 15 and 16, had reached first floor level, while the moulds had been erected for the con-   struction of the collonade in form of the new structures. The moulds show very clearly the approximate appear- ance of the collonade, which will be a feature of the architecture in civic centre buildings. Round the whole block an arcade is to be built piece by piece by each lessee, affording a covered footpath for pedestrian traffic. Lessees are re- quired, under the terms of their leases to permit pedestrian traffic to have at all times the use of the arcade, with the exception of any portion required for support in accordance with the building plan. At present the moulds of four arches of the collona...
