"WE STOOD ON THE BRIDGE AT MID-DAY." [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 27 September 1928
'WE STOOD ON THE BRIDGE AT MID-DAY.' AS GUNDAGAI WAS THIRTY YEARS AGO. The above photo was taken just on 30 years ago. It was snapped one day when three men who loomed large in the public eye made a somewhat historic pilgrimage to the bridge end and 'christened' the new structure. Those three men were Mr. P. J. O'Donnell, of Mingay; Mr. W. A. Robinson, 'of Abingdon, and Mr. W. H. Sibthorpe ('Sibby'), of Gundagai — all now dead. The big bridge had just been rebuilt, and the temporary one — higher up the stream, towards the racecourse — had been dismantled. When the bridge was taken over, none of the men in public positions in town, took steps to celebrate the event. At mid-day one Saturday, nearly 30 years ago, the three 'gentlemen . mentioned, accompanied by an 'Independent' rep., walked on to the--bridge, a bottle of champagne was broken, and an opening ceremony was gone through. The above photo was taken later on in -the day. It was snapped from South Gundagai, and^ it will be not...

LAUGHTER AND TEARS WOMAN WEPT WHILE MOVIE AUDIENCE LAUGHED TRAGIC MESSAGE [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 27 September 1928
LAUGHTER AND TEARS WOMAN WEPT WHILE MOVIE AUDIENCE LAUGHED TRAGIC MESSAGE On the screen in Sydney on Mon- | day (says the 'Daily Telegraph Pic torial') a Hollywood comedian was moving an audience of women and children to laughter, and tears of laughter ? Behind the screen, in the mana ger's office, a woman was sobbing her heart away in the face of tragedy — As she 'wept the laughter and music went on, ignorant of the pathos and mockery of it ? s Thus did tragedy stalk into the Majestic Picture Theatre, Sydney, on Monday afternoon. In the middle of a comedy film a notice was suddenly flashed on to the screen : — 'Miss Potter, please call r mana ger's office — urgent.' As an anxious woman hurried to the office, the threads of the 'come dian's buffoonery were taken up again by the audience. They laughed, wept with laughter. And, in the office, Miss Potter's friend was breaking the news of the fatal accident, in which her brother, Peter, had been the victim.

SUPPORT FOR SCOUTS [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 27 September 1928
SUPPORT FOR SCOUTS This week there is good hews for the parents and guardians who are interested in the Boy Scouts, and those others whose boys are only old enough for Cubs, insomuch that at a meeting of the parents and support ers' committee of the Boy Scouts movement, last Friday night, the committee were fortunate in secur ing the capable services of Mrs. Hunnings to act as Wolf Cub Mis tress. Mrs. Hunnings is an enthusi ast for the movement, rind has a natural ability, combined with a big heart full of love for giving a helping hand to assist in the mould ing of these 'young hopefuls' into the men their parents would wish them to be.

"IT'S YOUR BABY" MINISTER WON'T OWN IT HOSPITAL COMMITTEE MUST KEEP GOING [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 27 September 1928
'IT'S YOUR BABY' ? ? ? ? MINISTER WON'T OWN IT HOSPITAL COMMITTEE MUST KEEP GOING A few weeks back Gundagai Hos pital Committee, finding itself' in troubled financial waters, resigned in a body. The Minister was invited to accept the committee's resignation, but he has declined to do so — in effect he says to the Committee, 'It's your baby.' , Under the Act the present com mittee must carry on until it is re placed by another, and it is still in office. At its next monthly meeting the committee will a train wrestle with financial problems, and find ways and means. We believe that if the Hospital controllers appeal to the public in the old way they will not be turned down.
