VANDALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 September 1926

VANDALISM. Our attention has been drawn to the work of certain vandals on the shelter sheds at West lake and Westridge. At both of these shelter sheds serious and wanton damage has been done, and we have been asked to state that the offenders, if detected, will be severely dealt with. These shelter sheds were erected primarily for the purpose of giving shelter to school children waiting for the 'buses, and it seems almost incredible that such criminal and purposely destruction should have been per petrated, -4»

"PEACE, PERFECT PEACE," [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 September 1926

' PEACE, PERFECT PEACE," A resident of the Bachelor» » Quarters has drawn our attention to the following contri bution by "A.O.M." in the Sydney Bulle tin," and hopes that residents at the Quar ters will read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest the advice. "Jack London described Sydney as the noisiest city he knew. Despite the protests of doctors and others, it still preserves the irritating anachronism of the chimes on the Post Office clock. And even in the choicest residential areas, raucous roosters, yelping dogs, and vulgarly rowdy guests still make reasonable rest at night uncertain always and often impossible. Even along the gay Riviera night disturbances are not accepted with the same complacency as in Sydney. As part of the combined effort to secure proper rest along the Cote d'Azur, the hotel pro prietors have had fixed in each bedroom, cor ridor, reception room, and lift an artistically designed card centred by a clock dial show ing the hours between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. print...

RUGBY LEAGUE CANBERRA CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 September 1926

Mfi Mi ??«'MU II ? Mn i M M-mi »»--II»--»».-»!.-M--ll--M-M RUGBY LEAGUE (By "Rugger.") CANBERRA CLUB. The Canberra League just missed taking the Oretan Cup from Molonglo Endeavourers, the scores being 6 to 5. At the next match, versus Riverbourne, at Acton, they scored a victory-scores, 11-3. This match was an invitation match, only scratch teams playing. The following week, versus Waratana, they were unfortunate in having some of their best men out, and their combination was weakened; * however, they took their beating like sports. Since then the other clubs have had previous matches and Canberra have had a let up. How ever, last week-end they met the Koalas in Queanbeyan. At the instigation of their secretary, a meeting was called of the second grade clubs to receive the suggestion of bringing a team from Sydney. Two other clubs were repre sented at the meeting, Molonglo and River bourne respectively, and arrangements have now been made for a Sydney team to play the second grade c...

FOOTBALL. AUSTRALIAN RULES. FEDERALS PREMIERS FOR 1926. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 September 1926

» mm mm mm mm B«^-. W-m^-EH-HW^-nq »O' WW« FOOTBALL. AUSTRALIAN RULES. FEDERALS PREMIERS FOR 1926. At the conclusion of the first round, when Acton had met and decisively defeated all comers, the rash enthusiast who predicted the passing of the premiership to another team would have hoon laughed to scorn. Vet that is what happened. Thc Federals have beaten them twice, first luckily, and then decisively, and so retain the Owen Perpetual and Carnnll Cups which they won last year. The whole of the semi-final and final matches have been played since the last issue went to press. Acton just squeezed home from Queanbeyan, their victory resting on a goal umpire's decision as to whether a Quean beyan shot in the last minute of the game was a goal or a behind. Then the Federals struck an obstinate Eastlake eighteen, which refused to be shaken oft' until well into the final quar ter. That left the old rivals, Federals and Acton, to fight out the finish, Acton possess ing the minor premier's r...

CHILD WELFARE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 September 1926

CHILD WELFARE Immigration is undoubtedly a vital factor in the future progress of a young nation like Australia, but it has been said with an unde niable degree of truth, that our best immi grants are the Australian babies. Elaborate, and admittedly necessary arrange ments, are in operation for the reception and proper care of families from overseas, but the question arises as to whether the " reception ' ' and future welfare of Australian new-born babes is undertaken with the necessary degree of thoroughness which so vital a question involves. When it is considered that half of the in fants lost in Australia do not survive the first month, the need for better care of mother and child during pregnancy and after childhood is strikingly apparent. Here in Canberra we are favoured with a healthy and invigorating climate, and the sturdy nature of the children is a testimony to that fact. The glorious ...
