A Deal In Values THIS WEEK'S SHORT STORY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

,\ A Deal In Values THIS WEEK'S SHORT STORY p]nilltlllllHIIHIMHlll Yes without a Rliadow of doubt he had been a fool, lint as he emerged from the doorway Into Gerrard Street, Dick Cranston had to admit himself that In similar cinicmstancea he would again act In precisely the same way. Still, It wa.s of no une to disguise tlilnsa; he was, to use his own words, »up against It " Briefly .»the position was this. Al- though Dick had enough to live on quite comfortably-about a thousand a jear-perhaps, luckily for him, he could riot touch the capital from which this Income was dei h ed, because, upon his death, the lump sum devolved upon some highly deserving home for lost dogs; and, theiefore, when George Wollaston fell in love, there was the devil to play. ,To be nioie explicit, it must be understood that little George was Dick's vei y liest friend. They had kept together at Cambridge, and George, the affluent, had helped Dick out of a hundred and one financial difficulties. Then George,...

GAS MASKS For Citizen Force     FIRST INSTRUCTION Melbourne, Wednesday Hideous goggle eyed figures stood on the parade of second cavalry di- vision's camp at Broadmeadows on Tuesday, apparently drawing nourish- ment through piping from canvas hav- ersacks slung on their chests. They were light horsemen who were securinng the first instruction given to citizen soldiers in Australia in the use of the latest gas masks.   The instructor was Lt.-Col T. R.   Williams of army headquarters who recently returned from a signal and gas training course in England. The new mask fits closely and comfortably on the face and is a great improve- ment on the old box respirator.

THE 'MOREPORK'S' STORY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

THE 'MOREPORK'S' STORY ' Long, long ago, there was a beauti- ful bush-clad valley, where all kind! of birds flecked during the spring- time to attend to _the serious busi- ness of building nests, und to discuss all the Important business of the bird ] world. However, all good things must.i come to an end, and one day the kookaburra flew in an absolute frenzy to her friend, the emu, and told hei that their beautiful valley had been trespassed upon by a bevy of black- fellows. , The news quickly spread, as these things will, and at last, after long and furious arguments, the now angered birds decided to have a general meet- ing and decide what was to be done about these invading two-legged creat- ures. ^ They shortly arrived at the scene of their disapproval, but were amazed lo lind only the remains of a feast, which had evidently consisted of wild pork that the blacks had hunted and killed in the bush. Naturally the birds ^decided to eat the remains of the feast before they entered u...

CANBERRA WELFARE MEETING OF COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

CANBERRA WELFARE MEETING OF COUNCIL A meeting of the council of the Can- berra Social Service Association was held at the Social Service Building, Acton, on Wednesday evening, at which delegates from the various District As- sociations were present. The main business of the evening centred round the proposed amend- ment of the constitution affecting the status of the old social service com- mittees. At the previous meeting of the Council, delegates had considered that the District Associations which had been established in the various     centres of Canberra were quite com- petent to carry out projects for the welfare of residents, and such mat-   tors could be dealt with through the   General Secretary by the Council. It was thought that the necessity for the continuation of the activities of the social service committees no longer existed.   After a full discussion on the pro- posed alteration of the constitution, an...

COMMUNITY LIBRARY Now Has 1000 Books AN ENERGETIC COMMITTEE (By Secretary). The efforts of the Canberra Com- munity Library committee, which is made up from delegates from the var- ious camps and centres, to make the library a success, have been rewarded. The library is financial and it has reached the objective of 1,000 books in six months. The public does not realise what it has cost each delegate to come along to each fortnightly meeting. In all sorts of weather and in the times of bad transportation. At times when the car has failed to pick up the delegate, I have known him to walk to the meet- ing. It has been only in the case of sickness that a delegate has not turn- ed up at a meeting. I claim that there is not another more lively body of committeemen in the whole of Can- berra than the Library Committee. It pleases me to report that all soc- ial functions held by the committee, in aid of the library, have met with suc- cess. The latest outside function we have had in aid of ...

OLD CANBERRA A LANDMARK GONE THE OLD AINSLIE POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

OLD CANBERRA A LANDMARK GONE THE OLD AINSLIE POST OFFICE. Within the last few months has dis- appeared one of the old landmarks of Canberra. The old Ainslie Post Office which stood on the Yass Road at the top of the present Ainslie Avenue has been demolished to make room for   the development of the suburb of South Ainslie. The post office on the Yass Road stood at the nine mile peg from Queanbyean, at the fork where the road turned off   down the ford across the Molonglo River. It was in use until within a few months ago. After its years of service to the pioneers of Canberra, the old building has been demolished carrying         with it many memories. The trees     which surrounded the old building sur- vive, but the Yass Road which passed in front of it has passed into disuse. A deviation of the Yass Road has been   made and the main road between Yass &nbsp...
