CANBERRA PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY COMMENCEMENT OP CONCERT SESSION. GREAT MUSICAL EVENT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926
CANBERRA PHILHAR MONIC SOCIETY COMMENCEMENT OP CONCERT SESSION. GREAT MUSICAL EVENT. AU hearts grow light when music's played, And voices mingle sweetly, And Time, at times with care down-weighed, Jogs on his journey fleetly. The Canberra Philharmonic Society burst, fully formed, into musical being on Satur day, 15th May, at the Causeway Hall. The Society has successfully skipped the interme diate stage, between infancy and maturity, and made its first appearance in the musi cal world as an organisation of musical en thusiasts as efficient as enthusiastic. All Canberra that counts-musically speaking came, and even the critics were charmed with the programme of operatic, instrumental and humorous music that was given, which showed alike the versatility of the Society, and the capability of its conductor, Mr. E. A. Mowle. No wonder there was a smile on his face and the light of triumph* in his eye as he lifted his Baioh and opened the festival with the National Anthem. The first item ...
SOCCER FOOTBALL BURNS CLUB ON TOP. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926
SOCCER FOOTBALL, CANBERRA v. MOLONGLO. THE RIVAL CAPTAINS. SOCCER FOOTBALL BURNS CLUB ON TOP. As a result^of the formation of a live Asso ciation to control the distances of the round l all game in the Federal Capital Territory, splendid progress has been made since the opening of the present season. The Association Committee meets on Tues day of each week, and a full attendance of delegates of the various clubs speaks volumes for the enthusiasm of Soccer enthusiasts at Canberra. Of the five teams comprising the Senior League competition, Burns Club appears to have a fine side, although the excellent form shown by Molonglo in their match against Canberra would stamp the two blues as being the ' ' dark horses ' ' of the competition. For their first attempt against Capitol Hill, the newly-formed Northbourne Club did exceptionally AVCII to win by two clear goals, but the other "baby" to local Soccer, Can berra, were fairly run off their feet by the Molonglonians. The Canberraites, howe...
EASTLAKE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926
EASTLAKE Your highly-esteemed and indefatigable cor respondent lias just had a most harrowing ex* ' perience. Venturing out with a view to tak ing notes of the wonderful progress of this great centre, he became lost in thc maze of streets and buildings which have, as it were, sprung up like mushrooms in the night, and possibly may have perished miserably in the midnight cold only for the local tip. "The Tip, the Tip, the smelly Tip, That gives us Eastlake folk the pip; The Tip whose fumes so quietly steal, Amongst us at our evening meal. The Tip where bones and bottles lie, Abhorrent to th' artistic eye; While rodents lean and rodents fat, Feed on the-but enough of that. Remember this when next you'd grumble, Its fragrance guided home your humble." Yes, like the poor, it is always with us; still, it ''shows us the way to go home." SOCIAL* SERVICE MATTERS. At a public meeting called for the pur pose, ,it was unanimously decided to link up with the Social Service organisation and form...

CAMP NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926
CAMP NOTES (By "Gleaner.") After making a round of the camps to gather impressions as to what most interests the people, I came to the opinion that two up holds pride of place at the Tradesmen's Mess and No. 1; football at Rivcrbourne, Sewer, Molonglo and Northbourne; racing at Red Hill, Mugga Quarry, Ainslie; and poli tics at Capitol Hill. Speaking of politics, the words of Brunton Stephens and Jerome K. Jerome are forcibly brought to my mind: "Each has a nostrum for each fiscal evil.'* There is a man at Capitol Hill who would solve all industrial problems by the slogan "Produce for Use"*-and another who would solve all puzzles by "Direct Action.** There is the Socialist at White City who believes that all are equal, and when he gets excited will try to prove his theory in the Irish style, ls not one man as good as another? "Of course he is,** says the Irishman, "and bet ter, too.*' Another would establish "Coun cils of Workmen** for every job, and these Councils'* are to be filled...
RUGBY LEAGUE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926
RUGBY LEAGUE The Canberra Club has decided to play second-grade football only, though, up to date, players are showing splendid promise of de veloping into first-class exponents of the game. Since our last issue, Mr. Macnamara has resigned from the Secretaryship, and the position has been filled by Mr. W. K. Hunt. Members are turning up from all quarters of the Territory, which augurs well for the future success of the Club. On May 22 the Club played Riverbourne on the Acton Ground. The game was very in teresting, and now and then highly exciting; but as both Clubs are of recent organisation, more effective combination is required before either side is able to derive the best advan tage from its talent. The Canberra team would be well advised not to be afraid to throw the ball about, the members being inclined to play too much for self, and not considering the interests of the team as a whole sufficiently. It should not be forgotten that there are twelve others in the team to back u...
WESTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926
WESTLAKE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A meeting was held at Westlake on 15th May, for the purpose of forming a District Social Service Association at that centre. Mr. S. Champ, President of the Westlake Progress Association, occupied the chair. The chairman in welcoming the General Secretary, Mr. J. H. Honeysett, to tne meet ing, regretted the falling off in interest and attendance at meetings of the Progress As sociation, and thought that unless residents took an interest in their own affairs, very little progress would be made towards the well being of residents of Westlake. The existing hall was not at all suitable, and there were many ways in which the social well-being of the residents could be im- proved. He consequently favoured the idea of forming a District Social Service Associa tion at Westlake, more particularly to en- able the views of residents to be placed be fore the council per medium of a delegate. The General Secretary, Mr. J. H. Ho...
MOLONGLO. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926
MOLONGLO. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Following on the most successful meeting of residents of Molonglo for the purpose of forming a Social Service District Associa- tion (an account of which appeared in the last issue of the "News"), a further general meeting was held at the Molonglo Hall, on the 25th May, in order to fill the vacancies of President and Hon. Secretary, caused by the removal of the President, Mr. Naveau, to another district, and the illness &nbsp; of the Hon. Secretary, Mr. Lacey. The President of the district association presided. Mr. Naveau informed the meeting that in view of his early removal for Eastlake, he would be reluctantly compelled to resign from the position of President of the Molonglo Social Service District Association. Mr. Naveau's resignation was accepted. &nbsp; The chairman then called for nominations to fill the vacancies caused by the retire- ment of th...
STRAY BRICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1926
STRAY BRICKS. ''Brickie' asks: Recently I was severely "ticked off" by "the powers that be" for building a small fireplace in my shanty with Commission bricks. The question arises did I "pinch" them or not? The facts are that I collected "strays" that had been bumped off from passing lorries. With a sack under my arm my evening walks proved quite pro ductive. (Ask us another. -Ed.)
THE ETIQUETTE OF GOLF [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926
--: THE ETIQUETTE OF GOLF (By J. A. Irving ) It is as necessary to observe the eti quette of Golf as it is tho rules of the game, as though a breach of the rules may only concern your opponent, the breach of etiquette concerns all the players on the links. The following are weil worth your scrutiny. 1. A single player has no standing, and must always give way to a properly con stituted match. 2. No player, caddie, or onlooker should move or talk during a stroke; 3. No player should play from a tee un til the party in front have played their second stroke, and are out of range, nor play up to a putting green ti ll the players in front have holed out and moved away. 4. The player having the honour should be allowed to play before his opponent tees his ball. 5. Players who have holed out should not try their putts over again when other players are following. 6. Players looking for a iost ball must allow other players to pass them. 7. On request a three ball or four ball game must allow...
