TENNIS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926
TENNIS The second Annual Handicap Tournaments of the Canberra Tennis Association were held during the King's Birthday holiday week end, and despite the counter attraction of a tour to Kosciusko, a record number of entries was received. Weather conditions were favourable, and some good tennis and close and exciting finishes were witnessed. Owing to the large number of entries re ceived, the events were not finalised during the week-end, and were, with the exception of gent.'s and mixed doubles, concluded during subsequent Saturday afternoons. The un completed events will, weather permitting, be finalised on the Eastlake Courts on Saturday, July 3. Probably the best tennis was provided by the "A" Grade gent.'s singles, which was won by Mr. JS!orman Ridley, of Queanbeyan. This young player, although on the scratch mark of 40 behind, played consistently right through the tournament, and his final match with Captain Magillicuddy, of Duntroon, was a fine exhibition of tennis on the part o...
EASTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926
EASTLAKE. P. F. Douglas, who has had a very rough spin while on his recent holiday, owing to the after effects of a dose of gas received at the front, is, we are glad to say, back again, although hardly his old self. He still gives a ton of cheek, however, and failure to raise your hat as you pass the Fire Station calls forth a prompt invitation to visit his stadium. Constable Foster, who has been stationed here for the past ten months, has been trans ferred to Bermagui, much to the regret of this community. The fearless, conscientious and impartial discharge of his duties, to gether with his tact and sportsmanship, has earned the admiration of us all at Eastlake; while the personal qualities of himself and wife have gained for them out regard and esteem. Both were entertained at a happy so cial evening in the Church Hall, Eastlake, on Thursday, the 24th June, Mrs. Foster being the recipient of several handsome presents. Occasion was taken by the Eastlake Tennis Club at that functio...
CANBERRA HOSTELS SOCIAL CLUB. GENERAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926
CANBERRA HOSTELS SOCIAL CLUB. GENERAL MEETING. A general meeting was held in the Hotel Canberra Recreation Room on June 15. There were about 30 members present. Mr. W. Farrow occupied the chair. Owing to several members of the previous Committee * having left the district, practically a new Committee was formed. The Club has now been placed on a firmer footing than ever, and forthcoming events should show excellent re sults. Euchre parties, whist drives, socials and dances are on the cards for next month. It is hoped that members will stick to the Club, and non-members enrol at once. Mr. B. Keean is the treasurer and Mr. Gr. White is the hon. secretary, who will be only too pleased to see fresh faces at the Club gather ings. At the conclusion of the meeting, Mr. Honeysett addressed the members, and gave them some sound advice, SUCCESSFUL DANCE. All roads led to the Causeway on Tuesday, 22nd June, when the Club held its second monthly dance. The music was delightful, and the dancers ...
SUBURBIA. WESTRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926
SUBURBIA. WESTRIDGE. Westridge has had a most unwelcome visi tor, to with, the 'flu, nearly all the residents being laid up with it. Football is all the talk here. The Ramblers li ad another victory when they met and de feated Molonglo. We wish them luck next time they play the Koalas for the ' * Kearney Cup." They are holding a big social on the 7th July in aid of their club funds. The Westridge Tennis Club held a singles tournament recently, J. Ware winning the gent, 's and Mrs. R. Hutchison the ladies ', after some excellent tennis. There is talk of forming a Boy Scouts' Troop at Westridge. This is a splendid move ment, and will enable our boys to pull to gether for the common good of the com munity, so it is up to all our eligible boys to join in the movement, and take some interest in the district. MOLONGLO. There has not been very much doing at Molonglo during the past month. A general meeting of the District Social Service Asso ciation was held in the Amusement Hall on the 9t...
CRICKET A REVIEW OF THE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926
CRICKET A REVIEW OP THE SEASON. (By "Silly Point.") The Federal Territory Cricket Association has just closed its fourth year, and, judg ing by the keenness shown in all its matches, speaks well for the future of the game With a live Council, and a strong body of officers, the Association has been called upon to perform a large amount of executive work during the season. The Douglas Cup and Pennant, the goal for which each team has been striving, has, in former seasons, been won by Ainslie twice and Brickworks once. This year Northbourne, a newly-formed team, secured the coveted honour. Last season the Association had eight clubs, but this year no less than ten teams com peted in the Pennant Competition. in all probability next year it will be found necessary to divide thc competition into two sections. This season's teams were very evenly matched and some very exciting finishes were witnessed. Westridge, last year's Premiers, started off well; but were outed in the semi final by Ai...
CANBERRA INDUSTRIES BRICKMAKING AT WESTRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926
CANBERRA INDUSTRIES BRTOKMAKING AT WESTRIDGE. Very few of the many visitors to Can berra, and probably few of the residents are aware of the important ramifications ot tho hriekmaking industry carried on at Westridge-that prettily situated suburb of Canberra, windi invariably catches the visitor's eye on the well known trip to the Totter River. Tho enormous amount of building con struction involved in connection with the evolution of a city like Canberra, naturally calls for material in huge quantities, and the supply of bricks for such an undertak ing plays an important part in the smooth running of the wheels of progress. A representative of the "News," who re cently visited Westridge, was afforded every facility .by the management of the brickworks to give readers of this journal a description of the various processes entailed in brick manufacture. The first operation in comic* Hon with the manufacture of the brick commences at the pit. This is not a "pit" in the true sense of th...

The Chairman of the Commission (Mr. J. H. Butters) kindly at tended at the Acton Hall for this purpose.

PARLIAMENT HOUSE ON FIRE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926
PARLIAMENT HOUSE ON FIRE That silent incendiary, Old Sol, recently gave Canberra's countless early risers a start that nearly jolted their Canberra calmness out of them. It was a misty morning, and a snow like blanket was lazily rolling itself over the face of things, muffling everything in a mantle of so thick a texture that only the dimmest of outlines pierced the veil. The great parlia mentary pile itself seemed but a mass of mist, when, without a whirr of warning, the great edifice burst into flame, crimson and lurid, as a vast city conflagration. It seemed for a second or so that the beautiful white building would soon be but a handful of black ashes; then the mind adjusted itself to the phenome non, and one realised that the sun had just climbed the peak of Mount Ainslie, and was crimsoning all outstanding objects with his ruddy torch, that we looked at reflected flame and not at real fire. Early rising citizens breathed again and went into breakfast.
