MOLONGLO SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 7 May 1925
MOLONGLO SETTLEMENT. -4----- (From our correspondent.) It is very pleasing to note that inspections of the living quarters at Molonglo are be ing made more frequently, with the result that the place is kept a great deal cleaner and more healthy than it was, but it will take very many of these visits from the health authorities to make this a healthy camp for the children as the conditions of living are very bad indeed. Seeing that the married man is this coun try's best asset, it is remark able that better provision for his family is not made by the Government. It must be re membered that the Govern ment spends many thousands of pounds bringing immigrants to this country, while its own people are forced to live and rear up a family in a place like Molonglo. But we people of Molonglo are looking forward to better homes from the pre sent Commission, which we be lieve is trying to make some arrangements for the married labourer who is playing just as esential a part in building this gr...

Lax Management. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 7 May 1925
Lax Management. The defunct Queanbeyan P. P. Board was apparently most careless and negligent in the performance of its work says 'The Braidwood Review," In the case of the lease of a camping reserve to a Mr. Kelly at Burra an even stronger term might be justifiably applied. Again, at last Thursday's meeting of the Braidwood Board. which has absorbed the greater part of the old Queanbeyan Board's territory, Mr. Gordon asked the secretary if the boundaries bof the new PP. district had been properly defined. He be lieved that a large area on the nor thern end of Lake George was inclu ded in the Braidwood P P. Board, t while rates were being collected on it 'by the Goulburn Board. The matter should be certainly looked into: The secretary stated thiit he had already looked into the matter, and had already had returns from 34,000 acres which had hot heen rated by the late Queanbeyan Board. He stated that he would look furtheir int6 the matter. So far, he added, he had received 40 to 60 n...

MOTOR NOTES : BREAKING IN THE NEW , A Little Care and Thought I Malke a Wealth of Difference C 'Any number of- mechanical c precepts are hurled at the head I of the motorist, with the result I that, awed or disgusted by i their multitude, he is prone to s go to the other extreme and ig:. nore them all.
