POETRY PROSPECTS IN AUSTRALIA LECTURE BY DR. ALLEN [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

POETRY PROSPECTS IN AUSTRALIA LECTURE BY DR. ALLEN In selecting the prospects of Aus- tralian poetry as the subject of an ad- dress to the gathering of teachers at Yass on Tuesday, In connection with Education Week, Dr. L. II. Allen, pro- fessor of English at the Royal Mill tary College, Duntroon, chose a theme of considerable interest. Austi allan poetry of the past was reviewed, and the present stage of poetic development was examined and from these, Dr, Allen discussed probable development. Beginning with the past, Dr. Allen j dwelt on Gordon's "Dedication." Goi don had spoken of Australia as having scentless Howers and songless bilda, and as being the land of primeval forces and mysterious secrets. This was contrasted wistfully with English sdenes. This view, Dr. Allen staled, was Australia, as viewed in an allen spirit, and no motter how brilliant the writing, it failed if it was not the truth. A scene from D. H. Lawrence's "Kangaroo" was read to show that, for all Its clear te...

POST OFFICE Eastlake's Experiences [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

POST OFFICE Eastlake's Experiences Several business houses and residents of Eastlake have communicated with "The Canberra Times" since last is- sue, supporting the remarks concern- ing post office facilities there. "It is incomprehensible," said one business man, "that in an important centre such as this, there can be no telegram delivery. We are trying to cater for the shopping wants of the city, but when in order to convenience customers we communicate urgently with Sydney or elsewhere, the telegraph service is rendered useless. Every ad- dressee of a telegram has to call at the post office to receive his telegram and if he is not connected with the telephone, he has no means of knowing that a telegram for him is resting peacefully in the post office." On Saturday morning last, a re-   presentative of "The Canberra Times" visited Eastlake Post Office to add to the store of experience which others have had there. At 9 a.m., which is the hour for the opening of the post...

A DISTINGUISHED MAN [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

A DISTINGUISHED MAN One of the attractions at the bazaar was a fortune-teller's stall. A woman took her ten-year-old, red-haired son in- side. The wise one bent over the crystal ball. "Your son will be a very distinguished man, provided he lives long enough!" she murmured in deep, mysterious tones, "Oh, how nice!" gushed the proud mother. "And for what will he be dis- tinguished?" "For old age." replied the fortune teller slowly.

NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! Yes sad a traveller, I had an   amusing journey up to town. "There   were two Scotsmen in the compart- ment." "How do you know they were Scotsmen?" asked his friend. "Well, they both happened to take         their pipes out together. They filled them, and then each calmly waited for     the other to strike a match." "Well     what happened?" "Oh, I brought out       by pipe, so both of them waited for     my match"!

SPEEDING UP WITH THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

SPEEDING UP WITH THE WORLD. The world speeds along. Men grow   impatient with the things that erst- while were thought to set the pace. All things must keep in step with pro- gress or be discarded for those that can. Even portland cement, considered an excellent material of construction, is being criticised as being too slow for many builders. Chemists are sitting up of nights giving thought to im- proved methods that will create a   portland cement that will be even more satisfactory. There is an increasing demand for higher and earlier   strengths and for accurate means of predetermining the strength of con- crete. There is a challenge here that   must be answered with action. The world will not be content with make- shift methods and extemporized aids. There is a demand for still further improvement, and this improvement must, in part, take the form of higher and earlier strengths. Manipulation of present cements is of great aid...

HOME BUILDING MATERIAL New Concrete Construction [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

HOME BUILDING MATERIAL New Concrete Construction The workers of Great Britain are so hard pressed for satisfactory homes at a price that is warranted by the present serious industrial conditions facing the country that they have at last taken to the use of garbage con- crete! According to our London cor- respondent (writes "Concrete") a house of this type has already been built   and has proven quite satisfactory from the standpoint of wall insulation. The cost of a five-roomed bungalow of this   kind, it is said, does not exceed £200. This type of construction has been de- veloped in St. Paul's Cray, Kent, Eng- land, by T. H. Nash. The building material is concrete, and in its employment an important di- ficulty is said to have been solved, that of the elimination of condensation. Mr. Nash has suceeded in producing a outer layer that withstands the weath- er, a porous inner layer, and an inner side that affords a surface that will take, either wall paper o...
