GORMAN CUP MATCH CANBERRA V. NORTHBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
GORMAN CUP MATCH CANBERRA v. NORTHBOURNE. By "Base-Line." Under perfect weather conditions the second challenge match for the Gorman Cup was played at Northbourne on Satur day. 24th October, between Northbourne and Canberra. Northbourne, handicapped by the ab- . sence of J. Read and the Nish Bros., put up a good fight but Canberra were too strong and won 13 sets 81 games to 1 set 56 games. Smith and Newman opened against Ma- guire and Paul, Newman serving. Double faults cost Canberra the first game, but they evened on the next and the games went with the service till 4 all was called, when Newman's service was again lost and Northbourne led 5-4 with Maguire's service. Three cross-court driver, by Smith made it 5 all, and, Smith winning his service, Canberra took the set 6-5. The second set was marked by uninter- esting tennis and was annexed by Can- berra 6-3. On the other court Rowse and Tomi beat Sanders and Wicks 6-2, 6-5. Sanders was showing out in these sets, playing splendidly...
CANBERRA RACING CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; CANBERRA RACING CLUB November 7th had been mentioned as the possible date for a race meeting at Canberra, but unfortunately efforts to carry this out failed, and it now seems unlikely that a meeting will be held be- fore the New Year. The chief trouble is that those who should know, proclaim that our track is not fit to race on, and opinions differ greatly as to how we should remedy it. One thing is certain; something must be done in the near fu- ture to prevent it being too hard to race on early next year. The committee will meet shortly to thrash this matter out, and to decide upon an opening date.
BOWLS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
BOWLS Everybody knows there is a standard green at Hotel Canberra, but most of us have been under the impression that it would not be playable for another season. Commissioner Sir John Harrison, who is a veteran bowler of Ashfield, and who until last year was for several seasons President of that Club, is keen to see the bias tried out on the "home" green, and ventures the emphatic opinion that, while the 1925-26 season might be a bit rough for match play, there is no reason why good games should not gladden the hearts of bowlers, old and young, whose hope deferred has made their hearts sick, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Sir John's views have been conveyed to Mr. A. C. Fleetwood, hon. secretary of the Outdoor Recreation Committee. With the latter, to think is to act, and it may well be that some weird colored blazers may grace the green before this year has gone. Bowlers should establish touch with the Outdoor Recreation Committee.
THE CANBERRA CUP SPECIAL STORY OF THE GREAT RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
THE CANBERRA CUP -* SPECIAL STORY OF THE GREAT RACE. This being November, and the paper being anxious to be up to the minute in its news, it seems only fair to provide readers with a full report of the Cup Fes- tival. The Sport of Kings as the years go by loses none of its original attraction for the people of Canberra, and this year's Can- berra Cup Meeting, which, because of th? complete lack of organisation shown by the Committee, was justifiably held on tho first Sunday in November, was the most successful function yet arranged. That this was so was in no small mea- sure due to the sporting spirit of the head- master of the Bluetown Two-up School, who gave his pupils a holiday, thus mak . ing the function the only form of amuse- ment available. From early morning, or, at ail events, at an early hour for a Sunday morning, a steady stream of horses and drays, Rolls Royces, traction engines, aeroplanes and permanent public servants poured along all the roads where thoroughfare was ...
HEALTH NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
?umMfMMNmmmmiitiiHH^^ HEALTH NOTES -# By "Sister." "Take care of the pence and the pounds will take care of themselves." 'Tis an old saying, and a wise one, and what is more it doesn't only apply to the weekly bills, or to the pocket-money which we all have to portion out with more or less care, according to our earnings. It can be applied with equal truth to that clean bill of health which each house- hold ought to be so anxious to produce, and which, with a little care and common sense, ought to be a matter of no great difficulty in this healthy climate. It all amounts to this. Each one of us born into this world is entitled to a full measure of health and happiness; it was thus God meant it to be. It is generally somebody else's fault before or after birth-if we do not begin life with a clean bill, that is with a body sound in wind and limb. This responsi- bility lies with the parents who, before they decide to undertake that responsi- bility and that greatest of all joys, the br...
THE NEW HALLS. THE CAUSEWAY FIRST, THEN MOLONGLO. CALL TO ALL TO AID. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
THE NEW HALLS. -1 THE CAUSEWAY FIRST, THEN MOLONGLO. By CE.P. CALL TO ALL TO AID, "Our enemies are those that know us not, So therefore let us mingle each with all, And none will ever seek to break the bonds Of fellowship so forged." Makin. The more we mix with other men, the less likely we are to quarrel with them, and this is the root reason for building recreation halls. They enable us to enjoy each other's company, and so tend to rid us of false estimates of each other, else we are like to either love or hate a myth. Thus it is with great gladness we have to spread the news that the first bright link in the chain of new halls for Canberra is to be fashioned before November is out, and this era-marking event will surely make November a notable month in the calendar of Canberra. Soon after cock- crow on the day appointed, petrol power will transport the toilers to the scene of their toil. There they will transform rough and unshaped timber into a fabric of fine design in record ti...
CORRESPONDENCE (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
CORRESPONDENCE (To the Editor). Sir,—Having read the first issue of "The Community News," it seems to me that it may be of interest to fellow workers to learn that an excursion train will run every fourth week, commencing Friday, 30th October, from Queanbeyan to Sydney, the return journey to be made the follow- ing Sunday evening from Sydney. Trains will run at 8.40 p.m., from Queanbeyan. The fare will be 33/5 or fare and one- third. We have been endeavouring to obtain further privileges from the Railway Commissioners in the form of single fare rates, but have not been successful to date. We of the tradesmen's Mess, Molonglo, have reverted to the catering system as and from Friday,.23rd October, 1925. Our new caterers are Mr. and Mrs. Howel. Yours etc., R. A. McCARROLL. Welfare Club, Molonglo, October 24th, 1925.
CANBERRA GIRL GUIDES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
CANBERRA GIRL GUIDES A. -w During November it is hoped to enrol a number of girls in Canberra's first Guide Company. The preliminary training of Leaders and Seconds is quietly going on and just at present these meetings are held in private houses. Permission has been granted to hold the larger meetings in Eastlake Hall, pending the erection of a larger hall in the district. The Girl Guide movement, inaugurated by the Chief Scout, Sir Robert Baden Powell, is designed to provide for girls a training similar in principle to, but differ- ing in detail from that of the Boy Scouts, in which, "by an attractive scheme of work and play, the young citizeness is encour- aged to develop in herself the qualities which tend to the greatest national effi- ciency." Administration is decentralised into dis- tricts, each district managing its own affairs. Commissioners are appointed by the Executive Committee to represent Headquarters in the districts. The Head- quarters Executive administers the mov...

BOY SCOUT MOVEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
BOY SCOUT MOVEMENT -» 7 There was a fair attendance at a meet ing of persons interested in the formation of a troop, held in the Acton Hall on Friday evening, 16th October. Commis- sioner Gorman presided, and expressed complete sympathy with the objects of the movement. He introduced Mr. H. Macal- lister, Director of Organisation of Boy Scouts* Association, New South Wales sec- tion, who kindly arranged to include Can- berra In his organising tour, and who had come prepared to deliver a lantern lecture &^:^?:^*:-:.!:»utMnlnBr the anona .?.afrsAhft movement «tul. in particular the conduct of Jamborees at Wembley and at Copenhagen last year.

He said that the movement was founded by the original of the slide in 1907, with a strength of 26 boys, who went through Scout trainin...
KINDERGARTEN METHODS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
KINDERGARTEN METHODS -» Believing that all of us are interested in children, and realising that even tho younger of us adults had not the advan- tage of the broad and fascinating curri- culum in modern schools, the Editor con sidered himself fortunate in securing Misr. Constance Forsyth's consent, with the concurrence of the headmaster, Mr. C. L. Henry, to write a series of articles on Kindergarten Methods which are applied by her at Telopea Park Behool in this year of grace. Those who have experienced the pleasure of witnessing Miss Forsyth at work, or rathër play, with her young charges will surely appreciate a sketch of the history and principles of the Kin- dergarten. Miss Forsyth begins her story below: lt is widely recognised that education begins at birth and continues while life, or rather intellect, lasts.

MOLONGLO SETTLEMENT SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
MOLONGLO SETTLEMENT SCHOOL Originally built during the war period as a Concentration Camp for the accom- modation of German internees, Molonglo Settlement was made available after the war for housing workmen, to minimise the local house shortage upon resumption of the constructional programme. The present school was formerly the hospital and dental buildings, but was altered for use as a school and opened in February, 1922, with the present headmaster (Mr. C. ïvey ) in charge. The enrolment for the past 2 ½ years has been well over a hundred, and an assistant teacher was appointed in September, 1923. The grounds have been fenced and planted with wattles and various flowering shrubs. The headmaster's residence was originally occupied as quarters by the Commandant of the Camp (General Browne). 3_
THE GARDEN CITY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
THE GARDEN CITY &nbsp; Springtime in the slowly, but surely, evolving Garden City will no doubt be the most charming season of the year. The future tense is used, but the writer, who has been in the district for about 10 years, is accustomed to the use of the tense in discussing Canberra matters. Nature has provided a glorious climate in a glorious setting, but has been sparing indeed of spring flora or foliage ornamen- tation. The flora native to the district is intensely interesting botanically, but, if we exclude a few species of beautiful wat- tles, there is little left to suggest spring, as flower lovers understand the term. To sense the miracle of Spring it is ne- cessary to go to countries where real win- ters are experienced, and where the pre- dominating arboreal growth is deciduous To achieve a season of floral riot in this district it is necessary to assist nature by procuring from elsewhere the best of everything that may prove suitable to local conditions, and t...
WELFARE MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1925
WELFARE MOVEMENT. Last month we gave our readers as much detail as they could well digest of the Spade work of the Committees. Just before our first issue went to press &nbsp; the combined Committees met in the Acton Hall and received progress reports, besides selecting a name for this journal. The welfare officer of the Commission pre- sided. INDOOR RECREATION COMMITTEE. Mr. D. Kelly reported that about 300 tradesmen and 150 to 200 labourers had promised their services for the erection of the first of the recreation halls to be built at the Causeway, on the earliest pos- sible Saturday. Those electricians who worked for the Commission on Saturday mornings would be available in the after- noon, to tackle the electrical installa- tion. Not many bricklayers would be re- quired, as the structure would be of tim- ber, with two brick fireplaces. Mr. P. E. Priddle, Superintendent of Construction at Parliament House, would supervise operations. His wide knowledge and experience had...

THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
THE POULTRY YARD -* The following hints may be of use iu connection with chicks recently hatched. LEG WEAKNESS. Leg weakness in chickens often occurs about this time of the year, and may be caused by a variety of factors. In the case of brooder-reared chickens, it is frequent- ly due to there being insufficient litter on the wooden floor. The litter should al- ways be at least an inch deep. This is particularly necessary with those brooders which provide too much bottom heat. Letting the chickens run on too long wet grass is another common cause. The more often the youngsters can be run on mother earth the better, but they must be prevented from contact with wet grass. If the weather be very wet, it is better to let them run on hard earth or gravel. Lack of exercise is another cause. Those who feed entirely on wet mash during the first four weeks are troubled with this complaint among their chickens much more than those who adopt the dry method of feeding. This is one of the drawbac...
