AUSTRALIAN RULES ACTON MINOR PREMIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 August 1926
AUSTRALIAN RULES ACTON MINOR PREMIERS. The first round being completed, Acton have won the minor premiership, and are therefore entitled to play off in the final game. Red liill has dropped out after a series of mis fortunes, but with credit to its players on the never-say-die spirit in which they met their engagements. Acton, Federals, Queanbeyan, and Eastlake are the semi-finalists, and by August 21, probably Acton and Federals will be left to fight out the finish. All the final games will be played at North bourne. The season will end on August 28, if a -rand final is necessary, and a fortnight later a combined team will play the New South Wales first eighteen at Sydney. After that, a local game, Tasmania v. The World, is a probability. An effort to prolong the sea son was vigorously contested at a recent League meeting, but failed to secure suffi cient support. The League is approaching the Australian Football Council in regard to a match be tween two teams from other states dur...

CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS FORMATION OF DISTRICT ASSOCIATION.

SOCCER FOOTBALL BURNS CLUB PREMIERS. The old-established Burns Club has again put up a splendid performance in the Senior Competition of the Federal Territory Associa tion by annexing the premiership with only one defeat throughout the season.

A PLEA FOB SETTEE VERSE. Some time ago we received aa interesting communication from Mr. E. H. J. Paynting, regarding the verse which is from time to time published in this journal. In addition to the usual topical verse, Mr. Paynting made a plea for the insertion of some gems of the greater poets. Mr. Paynting has now kindly forwarded several of these poems, and we shall hâve pleasure in making use of these from time to time. In vievt of the approach of Spring, the following lines by a contem porary writer in Muriel Stuart are particu larly applicable: THE SEED SHOP. Here in a quiet and dusty room they lie, Faded as crumbled stone or shifting sand, Forlorn as ashes, shrivelled; scentless, dry Meadows and gardens running through my my hand. Dead that shall quicken at the call of Spring, Sleepers to stir beneath June's magic kiss, Though birds pass over, unremembermg, And no bee seek here roses that were his. In this brown husk a dale of hawthorn dreams, A cedar in .this narrow cell ...
