Sir,-On the night of 17th July last a free 'bus was provided by the Philharmonic So ciety for the transport of people to their homes after the concert at the Causeway Hall. On behalf of the residents of Westridge, I wisli to very heartily congratulate those most gentlemenly young fellows who raided the 'bus, and, by their most gallant and cour teous behaviour, deprived two ladies and five small children of a ride in the 'bus to their homes, it may interest these gentlemen, who, 1 understand, reside in the tradesmen's quar ters at *ioiongio, that one of the ladies of the Philharmonic Society and her three child ren walked the whole of the way home to Westridge. The other lady, who happened to be the writer's wife, walked to the Power House, her children, aged four years, the other one six years, not being able to walk as fast as the other lady's children. We were fortunate, as we obtained a lift, and arrived at our home at Westridge at 11.30, The cou...

AINSLIE S ADDITIONAL ATTRACTION CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND COMPLETED <fAmong Memory's fondest treasures Are childhood's innocent pleasures." A bevy of bright-eyed, Canberra-com plexiohed children-they all possessed that porcelain-like clearness of skin that is char acteristic of rhe capital-watched the build ing of this beautiful big toy, and it may be said that if they get as much joy out of playing on it as they got out of the building of it, the builders will feel that they have been paid in full, indeed, in overflowing mea sure, for their somewhat strenuous efforts. We are free to fancy that when the news of the making of the playground flew from lip to lip, a wild wave of excitement ran through that strange world that children live in, that world that most grown-ups have for gotten all about. What an event in the un eventful round of Ainslie life! Indeed, Ave are told that worried mothers, anxious for peace, have quelled the crying of irritable prattlers by picturing the ...

BAND NOTES (By H. Howe, Organising Secretary.) During the past month two well-attended and enthusiastic meetings have been held to discuss the question of placing Band activi ties in Canberra on a sound footing. At the first meeting, held on 21st July, the Social Service officer, who presided, explained that as a result of a conference between a sub-com mittee of the Band and the Outdoor Recrea tion Committee, a constitution for the Band had been drafted which it would be neces sary for the members of the Band to confirm. He trusted thát the placing of the future management of the Band on a sound basis would result in the formation of a Ban 1 worthy of our capital city. In this regard he would like to assure the members of the Band that the Commission would stand be hind them in their efforts towards future development. Mr. Howe considered that the best way to put the Band on a sound footing would be to make a fresh start and disband the old organisation, and it was accordingly reso...

Sir,-After hearing the splendid concert given by the Canberra Philharmonic Society at the Causeway Hall, I cannot help thinking that our community owes a deep debt of grati tude to the energetic conductor of the Society for the great amount of effort expended to ensure the success of what was probably the finest function that has yet been held at Can berra. Taking into consideration that the musical part of the programme in connection with the opening of Parliament at Canberra will play an important part in this great national event, I take this opportunity of urg ing the *'powers that be" to endeavour to utilise Mr. Mowle's services to take charge of the whole of the musical arrangements on that occasion. Judging by what Mr. Mowle has already done in this regard in Canberra, one could hardly do better than to take advantage, if possible, of Mr. Mowle's undoubted musi cal and executive ability...
