HOME NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926

7&-? HOME NOTES (By "Mona.") As preserving melons are plentiful we will now take a few recipes for utilising them and adding a few more jars of preserves to our store cupboard for winter. Both the conserve and the jelly are delicious. Melon Jam may be flavoured with lemons, oranges, ginger, pineapples, or passion fruit, each making an extremely nice preserve. An easy rule for the making of melon jam is to allow fib. of sugar to every llb. of fruit pulp, after the fruit has been cooked to a clear and tender stage. Finish the boiling rapidly after adding and dissolving the sugar. The product should be of a clear golden ap pearance and good consistency. Melon Conserve-Select a melon weighing about 121bs-not too ripe-and cut into medium-sized squares, removing the seeds. Place the melon in a preserving pan or basin. Covëf with water, in which you have dissolved two level teaspoonfuls of powdered alum; allow it to stand overnight or even longer. Now put llb. of green ginger into ...

NEXT THURSDAY BOUTS The second of the series of boxing con tests promoted by the Canberra Fire Brigade Recreation Club will be staged at the Cause way Hall on Thursday evening next.

The eight rounds ' * mill ' ' 'Vetween Brown and Dencio, both of whom shaped exceedingly well in last month's preliminaries, should pro vide a clever display of *'the noble art."

THE COMMUNITY SPIRIT (With Apologies to the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926

THE COMMUNITY SPIRIT (With Apólogas to the Editor.) What is this Community Spirit We hear about, oh! such a lot? Can you see it, or feel it, or drink it? Is it kept at the Quarters or not? And how does the blamed thing affect you ? Is it true that it maketh some sing, While others of much coarser nature Take delight in a bout in the ring Ohl give me a draught of this vintage That makes me to sing and to fight. It's cheap, I believe, so I will not grieve If I miss Queanbeyan Saturday night!

BOUND ABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926

BOUND ABOUT. (By "Gleaiior.'') Acton certainly handed out a surprise to the Sewer on Saturday, 19th June. An ap propriate war cry would be "Down the Sewer, let us go." What became of thc load of bricks which were provided by the Canberra Soccer Club for their match with Northbourne. It is hoped they will provide another load next time they call. And why not provide the Northbourne barracker with a megaphone? 'Tis a pity his lungs are so weak; he gets real excited sometimes. Is it Keogh or K.O.Î And why the Hail Columbia does not the Commission build a permanent hall at Ainslie. A geyser was recently seen near the church; why not make it a permanent insti tution. Lucky it wasn't washing day at Dun troon. A unique hat trick was seen at the game between Molonglo and Northbourne, when one of the Northbourne players scored three gjals-for their opponents. Query, did he lose his sense of direction t

CARE OF THE BATTERY. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926

CARE OP THE BATTERY. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Seeing the large and increasing num ber of motor cars in use on the Territory, it occurred to me that a few remarks about the much-abused storage battery would not be out of place. When I say abused, I mean abused in acts, not words. Some drivers seem to look upon the battery and starting motor as an auxiliary means of propelling the car; but such is not the in tention of the mäker. The engine is sup posed to take the blame or credit for that. Such being the case, it is well to see that the tank has something in it, preferably petrol; the engine works better that way, so, before jumping on the starter too often, make sure the juice is there. Do not start a stiff engine on a cold morn ing with the starter j the battery has its limits of endurance, and cranking her over is a nice exercise these chilly mornings. A "Ford" starting motor takes anything up to one hundred amperes when turning the engine, so I think that the battery's worst enemy w...

THE "HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR CANBERRA." (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926

-,-^ THE "HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR CANBERRA." (To the Editor.) Sir,-When is the Federal Capital Territory to have a representative in the Federal Par liament? lt seems a bit rough that those who are engaged in the task of building our national capital should suffer the fate of dis franchisement. If my memory serves me rightly, I seem to remember that Magna Charta had something to say about the "no - -0 vote-no tax" question. -Yours, etc., "AINSLIE." [Contributions of a political flavour are invariably consigned to the oblivion of the "News" W.P.B., but in this instance "Ainslie'' has raised a point of vital interest to Canberraites in general. May we simply state that the Federal Capital is being built upon the foundations of national ideals and aspirations, as embodied in the Federal Con stitution? Canberra represents neither party nor creed-but AUSTRALIA.-Ed.)

THE MOVIES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 July 1926

THE MOVIES The Causeway Hall, now completed, having had its blood baptism recently, appeared in a new character as a picture palace on Satur day last. For the first time screen shadows flitted before the eyes of a Canberra audi ence in Canberra, and patrons certainly seem ed loth to go, for the entertainment con tinued till close on midnight, part of which period, however, was "waiting"" time, due to a defect in the projecting machine, which did not display itself till too late for remedy so far as the evening show was concerned. This disorder, however, has now been cured by a Sydney expert, and later projections have been as perfect as modern cinematogra phic art can make them. It would be unfair to criticise the first effort, as everything was done on the hurry up plan, which always affects efficiency. We may, however, have complete confidence that the lessees will give the citizens of the capi tal a show that will compete in modernity and satisfactory presentation with anything t...
