POLO AT DUNTROON. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

POLO AT DUNTROON. Polo is in full swing in glorious wea- ther at the polo ground, near the Dun- troon Military College. The matches are being played under the auspices of the Molonglo (Federal Territory) Polo Club. The principal event is the competition for the "Rutledge Cup." The present holders are the Goulburn team. The attendance, considering it was an "off" day, was surprising; a large number of cars were parked on the southern boundary, and the well groomed, sturdy lot of polo ponies be- longing to the eight teams competing for the cup attracted much attention from an enthusiastic crowd in between the events.   In the first round, Cooma A team had an easy win over Molonglo B team, —scores, Cooma 13 goals 12 behinds, Molonglo 6 behinds. Other keenly con- tested games resulted in Burrangong team defeating Cooma B team by 4 goals 9 behinds to 3 goals 2 behinds. Goulburn defeated Currandooley, 5 goals 8 behinds to 2 goals 1 behind. Molonglo A defeated Yass by 7 goals ...

CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS. Formation of District Association. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS. Formation of District Association. The excellent progress maintained by the Boy Scout movement in Can- berra received a further fillip on the occasion of a meeting held at the Acton Hall on Tuesday, 17th August, convened for the purpose of forming a District Association in Canberra. Mr. H. R. Waterman presided over a good attendance of well-wishers of the movement, and stated that it was con- sidered that the time had arrived when further benefit would accrue to the movement by the formation of a Dis- trict Association for Canberra. The organisation in Australia was conduct- ed by the various States, and although Canberra was not in a State, it had been considered best, for geographical reasons, for local activities to come under the N.S.W. Association. Splen- did work had already been done for the advancement of scouting in Can- berra by Scoutmasters Guthrie and Paynting and other enthusiasts, but it was considered that the time had ar- rived when the local org...

HOCKEY. Indian Army Players At Duntroon. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

HOCKEY. Indian Army Players At Duntroon. By "Staff." The scores were no indication of the play put up by the losers in the match played at Duntroon on 27th July, when the Indian Army team beat a team representing the Australian Army. The team was picked from visiting teams from N.S.W. and Victoria and the Staff Cadets at Duntroon. Several players were unable to leave Sydney or Melbourne with their teams, which left the Australian Army side weaker than it would have been had they all been able to make the journey. The teams were:— Australian Army.—Forwards, Major Nimmo, Capt. Hopkins, Lieuts. Rout- ley, Gee, Geddes; half-backs, Capt. Kendall (captain), W. O. Moffat, Staff Cadet Incoll; backs, Lieut. Irving, Corporal Wade; goal, B.S. Major McNicoll. Indian Army.—Forwards, Sangara Singh, Captain Bellchaambers, Dhian Chand, Captain Cox, and Susainathan; half-backs, Captain Cowan (captain), Fitter Francis, and Captain Alexan- der, backs, Fagir Chand and Dhian   Singh; goal, ...

CANBERRA FIRE BRIGADE RECREATION CLUB. Second Boxing Display. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

CANBERRA FIRE BRIGADE   RECREATION CLUB. Second Boxing Display.   Another crowded hall, proving the popularity of the club's endeavor to present clean sport, fair contests, and able exponents of the art of self-de- fence to the residents of Canberra, where young men find evenings for them are not catered for as they should be.   Without doubt the excellent arrange- ments and clean boxing at the inaugu- ral venture gave enthusiasts the desire to see more. Chief Officer Percy Douglas was in charge of arrangements, Secretary Ma- loney had his committee well organ- ised, and Archie Hamilton as referee handled the fights in a capable and fair manner. The audience was thor- oughly representative of all classes on the Territory, and was not marred by one discordant note.   Preliminary Bout. V. Shea (10.7), of Queanbeyan, seemed in a heavier class to E. Mott (9.4) when they faced each other for the first bout. It was a willing go, and at t...

PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY'S SECOND CONCERT. An Historic Event. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY'S SECOND CONCERT. An Historic Event. When recording the opening con- cert of the Canberra Philharmonic So- ciety we stated it was easily the best musical event since the birth of the Federal capital, but the concert held before a crowded house at Causeway Hall on Saturday evening, July 17th, surpassed the expectations of the most optimistic. The credit is, without un- due flattery, entirely due to the dy- namic ability, untiring energy, and capable work of the Society's con- ductor, Mr. Ernest A. Mowle. True, without the artists assisting it could not have been accomplished, but it was the personnel of the artists that counted, and it was in marshalling such talent Mr. Mowle achieved such splendid results. An outstanding his- toric feature was that the concert was broadcasted throughout Australia and beyond it by the courtesy and at the expense of Farmer & Co.'s Sydney broadcasting station. Mr. Cochrane, the "hello man" official announcer of 2F.C., perso...

DUKE OF YORK'S VISIT. One Day Only At Australia's Federal Capital. Report Drawn Up. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

DUKE OF YORK'S VISIT. One Day Only At Australia's Federal Capital. Report Drawn Up. Suggested outlines for the pro- gramme of the official festivities for the visit of the Duke of York, with plans covering such details as accom- modation, policing, and transport, are contained in a special report to the Government by the sub-committee of the cabinet investigating the position. The report was submitted, to a meet- ing of the Federal Cabinet by the chairman of the sub-committee (Sena- tor Pearce). He said that it was too early to discuss details. The report had been drawn up after consultation with interested parties, but all the   conclusions were purely tentative.   Probably following a discussion of the report a departmental committee would be appointed to amplify the programme, as in the case of the visits of the Prince of Wales and the Ame- rican Fleet, and the Prime Minister would have to get in touch with the various State Governments. Skeleton Program...

PROGRESS AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

PROGRESS AT CANBERRA.   One of the most important features of present activity is the provision of residential accommodation, including the hotel Acton, tour boarding houses, and cottages at Acton, Ainslie, Telopea Park, Blandfordia, and West- ridge. Of the groups of cottages re- cently let by contract, fifty-one houses are under construction. Of those be- ing erected in the city area by day labor, forty-one are practically com- pleted and twenty-nine are in various stages of construction. Three others are being built at Stromlo.

We trust Mr. Selkirk's health will enable him to pen further informa- tion of such historic interest concern ing our Federal Capital Territory.— Ed. "Pioneer"].

The Federal Capital Pioneer The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. AUGUST 20, 1926. THE VISIT OF THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF YORK TO CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

The Federal Capital Pioneer     The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. AUGUST 20, 1926. THE VISIT OF THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF YORK TO CANBERRA. The historic event of transferring the seat of the Commonwealth Govern- ment from Melbourne to its rightful home—Canberra—will, as a result of the visit of the Duke and Duchess of York, to perform the ceremony of opening the first Parliament here, at- tract the attention of the whole civi- lised world to our Federal city. But if the itinerary, as mapped out by the Duke's reception committee re- cently appointed by the Government is allowed to be carried out Canberra will receive a set-back. Perhaps an anti-Canberraite on the commit- tee saw a chance, too good to be missed, to belittle Canberra, and suc- ceeded in arranging that the opening ceremony will be hurried, as it is an- nounced "the Duke will perform the opening ceremony and return the same day." Bluntly expressed, the recep- tion commit...

TERRITORIAL CO-OPERATION AT CANBERRA. Federal Territory Lessees' Association. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

TERRITORIAL CO-OPERATION AT CANBERRA. Federal Territory Lessees' Association. (By One of the Members.) The above association has come into being because of a recognition amongst Federal Territory leasehold- ers that unity is strength. Its mem- bers consist of all those engaged in rural pursuits in the Federal Territory. The class that is often referred to as "the backbone of the country," but never as the head, hands, or heart of the country's anatomy. There are, of course, other lease- holders in the Territory, but only those engaged in pastoral, agricultural, horticultural, or dairying pursuits are eligible for membership of this as- sociation. Its aims and objects have not been set forth and posted up like "routine orders," nor are they likely to be carved in stone like the Ten Commandments. It is simply this: The time has come when even "cockies" must unite, otherwise they get it in "the neck." The feeling exists that if we don't get together, and hang together, we will all hang...

ANOTHER PARLIAMENTARY SESSION. Canberra Next May. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

ANOTHER PARLIAMENTARY SESSION. Canberra Next May. The opinion is current in Melbourne that there will be another session of the Federal Parliament in Melbourne before the change to Canberra next May. Questioned in the House of Repre- sentatives, Mr. Bruce said he could not say definitely whether there would be another session or not. It is con- sidered, however, that the next session will start shortly after Mr. Bruce's return from England, probably from the end of February to the beginning of May. The House will then adjourn for a week and will resume at Can- berra immediately after its opening by the Duke of York.
