Topics of the Times CANBERRA'S POPULATION [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

Topics of the Times CANBERRA'S POPULATION The population statistics which were issued by the Commonwealth Statis- tician afford a very inadequate idea of the growth of Canberra and the increas- ed activities here. The fault does not with the statistician or the figures, but the figures need a commentary to ex- plain certain facts. That the popu- lation of the Federal Capital Territory should show an increase in the twelve months ended, June 30 of only 552 persons is remarkable in view of the rapid expansion which is taking place in Canberra. The truth is that the actual population of Canberra is not easily reckoned. There is a large float- ing population which statistics cannot count. There are also many residents of Canberra, in fact, who sleep in Queanbeyan for want of accommoda- tion here, but whose whole interests and activities lie in Canberra. The in- crease in population during the three months which have elapsed since the statistics were compiled must have been considerable ...

AINSLIE AND WESTLAKE NEW PLAYGROUNDS Child Welfare Activity Two new children's playgrounds were constructed during last week end under the auspices of the Social Ser- vice Associations at Westlake and Ainslie. The materials for the construction of these playgrounds was supplied by the Federal Capital Commission and voluntary labor has been forthcoming readily from residents. The play ground at Westlake is the first to be provided in the western section of the city but Ainslie ground is the second which has been provided in that sub- urb. The site of the new children's play- ground in Ainslie is the most ideal which has been secured. The large group of trees which stand out prom- nent as a landmark in contrast to all the city plantations, afford pleas- ant shade for children's games. The site is said to have historical signifi- cance as the former corroboree ground of the aboriginal tribes which first made Canberra a meeting place .

HOUSING GOVERNMENT MOVING DR. PAGE'S STATEMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

HOUSING GOVERNMENT MOVING DR. PAGE'S STATEMENT Housing is a problem of the first importance and the Federal Ministry intends to push on with its proposal to finance the provision of homes for people, said the acting prime min- ister (Dr. Earl Page) to-day.. The project, however, had not yet reached a stage when details could be made public, he continued, but the ministry did not intend to make any change in its plan as announced in the budget speech last July. Dr. Page. was unable to indicate whether hous- ing would be dealt with by a special department of the Commonwealth Bank which will finance advances which it is proposed to make for housing pur- poses, or whether a separate commis- sion would be set up by the ministry to deal specially with housing. The terms on which loans for homes will be made were also still to be settled. The ministry's housing plans will be the subject of a special bill, the draft- ing of which has not yet gone be- yond the preliminary stages.

AFFORESTATION New Bureau Formed For International Data Importance to Australia [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

AFFORESTATION New Bureau Formed For International Data Importance to Australia While the necessity for a well de- fined forestry policy is being demon- strated to an increasing degree in Aus- tralia, the subject is receiving attention in most countries of the world, many of whose afforestation efforts are far in advance of those of Australia. One of the most important gatherings connect- ed with forestry has been the inter- national congress held at Rome re- cently, at which several decisions were reached which are of considerable im- portance to Australia. The early establishment of a new bureau in the Institute of Agriculture at Rome for the purpose of collecting and disseminating world statistics re- ating to forestry, was one of the de- cisions of the congress. The extent to which this affects Australia is indicat- ed in the report which has been re- ceived from Mr. H. R. Mackay, who re- presented Victoria at the congress in his report regarding the congress, Mr. Mackay stated t...

LAND TAXATION Anti-Tariff Union's Cry. MELBOURNE, Wednesday. While the States are concentrating on placing men on the land, the Fed- eral Government is doing its utmost to tax them. This was the contention of Sir Wil- liam Lathlain (W.A.) at the opening of the first annual conference of the Town and Country Union. Speaking on tariff, Sir William instanced the heavy burden under which he consider- ed the primary producer was labouring every moment of the day. Sir William said: "From the feeding bottle to the tombstone, he is weighed down, and with the 38½ per cent, on his tomb- stone, he may well be unable to rise in response to Angel Gabriel's last call."
