ORIGIN OF PLAYING CARDS [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

ORIGIN OF PLAYING CARDS The playing cards now in use were invented in the fourteenth century by a French painter, named Jaques Grin- goneur. It is said that he invented them to amuse the mad king, Charles VI., of France. The king's were David, Alexander, Caeser and Charles; the queens were Angine, Esther, Judith and Pallas; the four knights, now called Knaves, and vulgarly "Jacks," were Ogier the Dane, Lancelot, La Hire, and Hector de Garland, knights of old ro- mance.       The Cardmake?? Company was in- corporated in 1429, and as early as reign of James ?, cards were taxed. Probably the first game in England was called "Trump." All the most   important historical events have been at one time or another depicted on playing cards, and some of the packs are very rare and valuable.

FROM CANBERRA ROAD TO THE COAST [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

FROM CANBERRA ROAD TO THE COAST An a number of motorists are not familiar with the best and most pic- turesque route from Canberra to the coast the National Roads and Motor- ists Association (N. S. W.) have sup- plied the following particulars and ir ctions: - The Molonglo River is crossed out of Queanbeyan, and the road is hilly to undulating from the Federal Terri- tory to Bungendore. It is practicable to take a short cut of 13 miles from hore to the Goulburn-Braidwood Road, by going to Braidwood, instead of continuing to Tarago and then to Braidwood. From the Braidwood-road junction it is mostly fair running through to Braidwood, before reaching which a junction is made with the direct (rough) road from Nowra via Nerriga. From Braidwood two roads lead to tile coast-one via Clyde Mountain to Nelligen and Bateman's bay, and the other via Araluen to Moruya. The Aralucn-road leads straight through the town over a fair road along the plateau, and later descends steeply to West Araluen...

AIR FORCE TRAINING AT DUNTROON COMMENCING THIS YEAR An announcement has been made by   the Department of Defence calling for applicants as cadets for the Royal Mil- itary College at Duntroon. This year   four vacancies for entry are being re- tained for air force candidates. This   will represent the first occasion in the     history of the college that it has been open to young men who seek to enter the Royal Australian Air Force.     Although a number of Duntroon grad-   uates have from time to time been ab-   sorbed in the air force there has pre-   viously been no certainty of selection for subsequent embarkation on a flying   career. Duntrro will, therefore, become a means of direct entry to the air force. The dual purpose which Dun-     troon will henceforth serve marks a   further page in the coll...

WINDMILL PLANE AUTO-GYRO TO REVOLUTIONISE AVIATION [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

WINDMILL PLANE AUTO-GYRO TO REVOLUTIONISE ' AVIATION When the Auto-gyro took the air, there was seen a veritable revolution in flying. The machine rose sedately, and its four horizontal wing sections placed over the fuselage could be seen revolving comparatively slowly, while the front propellor went at full tilt. Never going above a couple of hundred feet up, the Auto-gyro travelled slowly round the aerodrome, pausing from time to time to demonstrate its,ability to descend vertically and slowly. The concluding event of the programme was a competition open to instructors from the Flying Training School (appren- tices). Pilots, who took off at the judges instruction, climbed to fifteen hundred feet, and executed one loop, one half-roll, and three turns of a spin. They were not permitted to use their engines after closing the throttle for the commencement of the spin, and they had to land on an indicated mark,. Marks were allotted for accur- acy of flying and for distances from the ma...
