TRANSFER TO CANBERRA. Position of "Exempt" Employees. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 July 1926

TRANSFER TO CANBERRA. Position of "Exempt" Employees. Questions regarding the intentions of the Ministry in connection with the transfer to Canberra of temporary and "Exempt" Federal employees now in service with the central administra- tion were asked by Mr. H. S. Gullett (V.) in the House of Representatives. Mr. Marr (Assistant Minister) replied that it was not the intention of the Ministry to transfer any temporary employees, although it was possible that certain "exempt" employees would be sent to Canberra. Included in the temporary and "exempted"   classes were former soldiers with some years' service. As full notice as pos- sible would be given those employees whose services were to be dispensed with, and their engagements would be terminated in the usual manner. Many "exempt" employees would not be eligible for permanent appointments   under the conditions prescribed by the Public Service Act, and therefore, the creation of permanent positions might ...

TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL. The Deans Cup. (L. W. K.) [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 July 1926

TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL.   The Deans Cup. (L. W. K.) In order to stimulate sport in the school, a scheme has been initiated whereby the boys have been divided into four groups or houses, each house having its own title, distinguishing color, and captain. A competition in the various branches   of sport—football, tennis, cricket, and athletics—has been arranged among the four houses, and matches take place each Friday afternoon, while an athletic programme is carried out on the last school day of each term. Mr. John Deans, of Canberra, heard of the initiation of this scheme, and generously offered to donate a cup for the inter-house competition. The cup, a valuable silver one suitably inscribed and enclosed in a handsome glass case, has since come to hand, and the en- thusiasm of the various houses to hold the trophy indicates the boys appre- ciation of Mr. Deans' gift. The cup is for competition during each school term. The house having the greatest aggregate o...

HONOR THE PIONEERS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 July 1926

HONOR THE PIONEERS. The following statement emphasises the necessity of perpetuating the memory of the early explorers of Aus-   tralia at Canberra:— ROTTING AWAY. An Historic Tree Where Burke Died. Two miles from Innamincka, in   South Australia, a lonely box-tree       stands. It has a deep historic in-   terest for all Australians because it sheltered one of the most tragic figures in Australian exploration — Robert O'Hara Burke, who died near the spot on June 28, 1861.   According to Dr. W. McGillivray, of Broken Hill, this tree is fast rotting away, and the posts supporting the guarding fence are gradually being covered by drifting sand.     A similar state of affairs exists at the tree where the food depot was established by that other great ex- plorer Sturt. While it is considered impracticable to preserve the trees for many years longer some of the members of ...

CANBERRA LAKE. Proposed Molonglo Dam. Postponement Recommended. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 July 1926

CANBERRA LAKE. Proposed Molonglo Dam. Postponement Recommended. After inquiring into the proposal to construct a dam over the Molonglo River at Canberra, the Public Works Committee, in a report presented to   the House of Representatives, express- ed the opinion that the construction of the dam is not necessary imme- diately, and recommended that the work should be postponed.   The committee took evidence from witnesses who stated that the two   main reasons for suggesting the con- struction of a dam over the river at   Yarralumla were the necessity for river beautification and the provision of facilities for recreation, and, second-   ly, the necessity for improving the good discharge of the river. In sum- mer, it was stated, the Molonglo some- times dwindled to a very small stream, and in one season it had ceased to run for 41 days. From a beautification   point of view, however, the proposal &nb...

DUKE OF YORK. To Open Canberra. King's Message. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 July 1926

DUKE OF YORK. To Open Canberra. King's Message. The Governor-General, Lord Stone- haven, announced on the 18th that the King has consented to the Duke and Duchess of York visiting Australia to perform the official opening cere- mony at Canberra next year. The invitation which the Governor- General sent to the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs recalled the King's own visit in 1901, when, as Duke of York, he opened the first Federal Parliament. The Prime Minister pointed out that   the establishment of the Federal capi- tal would mark another important   phase in the development of the Com- monwealth, and that the presence of the Duke of York on such an occasion would further strengthen the bonds which united Australia to Britain, and to the Royal House.   In his reply the Secretary of State said that the King and Queen pre- served the happiest recollections of their visit, and trusted that the in- auguration of the Federal capital would be...

CANBERRA BURNS CLUB. Grand Concert and Dance. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 July 1926

CANBERRA BURNS CLUB. Grand Concert and Dance. Causeway Hall has been much im- proved by the installation of stage footlights and other lighting effects, which were much appreciated by the packed house attending the above on Friday evening, July 9. Mr. Jas.   Mackinnon, president of the Burns Club, and the committee had a fine programme arranged, and the energetic secretary, Mr. A. Stuart, had the hall decorated with bunting, and he is to be congratulated on the success   achieved. The opening overture was rendered by Mrs. Brown, who generously acted as accompanist for the evening. Mr. Brown was in good voice with his opening solo, and he had to respond to an enthusiastic recall, when he gave a splendid impersonation of a dude in a topical song. Mr. Reg. Shannon followed with a concertina selection, "Cathedral Chimes," and responding to a well-merited encore gave a selection of Scottish airs. Miss Mary Scott de- lighted the audience with "The Sailor's Hornpi...

AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL. After a highly successful season, during which interest in the game in- creased week by week, the competition has now reached its final stage, leaving Acton and Federals to fight out the premiership. On present appearances, the former, who have an undefeated record for the season, should possess   the cups for the second time in the three years of the League's existence. On September 18th, a combined team chosen from the Canberra eigh- teens will visit Sydney to play there the inter-State team of New South Wales representatives. It is a tribute to the local standard that the first N.S.W. eighteen is being fielded against our men, and should do much to make Canberra in future years an attractive resort for holidaying Aus- tralian Rulers. As a matter of fact, the local league is endeavoring to arrange a game between two inter- State teams during the vice-regal visit next May. After a season handicapped by ac- cidents, Red Hill were eliminated fr...
