OPERA AT CANBERRA PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY'S SUCCESS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926
OPERA AT CANBERRA PHI LH ARMONIO SOC í ET VS SUCCESS The splendid bill of fare provided by the Canberra Philharmonic Society in two previous concerts was sufficient inducement to the music lovers of Canberra to attend in large num bers at the Causeway Hall on 27th Septem ber, on the occasion of the Society's third concert, and incidentally the first rendering of opera in Canberra. It may be said that Mr. E. A. Mowle, conductor of the Society, quite surpassed previous efforts towards ren dering high-class music here. The thanks of all local musical people are due to the Society, and their energetic, guide, mentor and friend, especially when it is re membered that it is only by thorough appli cation to many hours of rehearsal that such a degree of success is attained in presenting such a comprehensive and varied programme of items. Mr. Mowle personally painted the scenery used in the various operatic numbers, which reflects great credit on his skill and energy. The visiting members of...

-«ix WHITE CITY Thc White City Recreation Association on Tuesday, 28th ult,, held their inaugural dance social at White City Camp. Their recreation room surely never before looked-and was-so beautifully clean, as well as being decorated with elegant good taste and beauty. These latter arrangements were in the hands of an energetic sub-committee, very effectively aided by Mrs. A, Campbell. About SO couples danced to a late hour, upon a specially prepared floor, and Arbuckle's Orchestra, as usual, provided a generous and faultless musical programme.

The waltzing competition (one guinea prize) was won by Miss Cleary and Mr. T. Prender gast, while the Anal decision regarding this very keenly contested movement was unani mously approved. Mr. J.

AN OLD TIMER'S MUSINGS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926
AN OLDTIMER S MUSINGS In which are set forth certain musings of an English gentleman of the 18th century, as he tarries at Canberra during his visit from the regions above. 1. This day did I arrive at Canberry, and finding much herein to interest me, methinks that as 1 am in a mood for dalliance, I shall tarry here yet awhile. It is a great work that they would accomplish here, though their means of doing so do not greatly please me in all ways (but I near forgot me-I must speak no word of my thoughts in this quarter). But it surely doth astound me how much modernity be displayed in this place, away so far in the forests. I verily do believe that some of the ladies ' dresses are much more scanty here than in the large Sydney town. Even so, it doth not distress me, for I was ever one for a glance at a well-turned ankle -or knee-more so an it were surmounted by a comely wench. The five large vehicles that have the hic coughs in their speech-they that are known as " 'buses/* are mighti...
EASTLAKE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926
Nhl fe EASTLAKE The lead given by business people of Quean beyan at the first land sale, and the prompt fulfilment of the building conditions of their leases, appears to have definitely established Eastlake as Canberra's shopping centre. Canberra is acquiring the habit of shopping there, and its growth is reflected in the con gestion of trafile which occurs in front of the shops, particularly from Young's corner to the petrol pump, lt is suggested that the Com mission establish a cemetery adjacent thereto, or as au alternative, widen the street. The Gorman Cup is fulfilling its function in promoting keen rivalry in the tennis world. After a temporary absence from Eastlake, it has once more returned home, having been wrested from the tennis giants of Canberra by the prowess of the local players. Cricket is booming here as in other suburbs. A new pitch has been laid down by voluntary effort, and two or more teams, it is ex pected, will enter the competition this year. The amount of wi...

CHESS MOLONGLO DRAW WITH THE BACHELORS. Canberra's first chess contest was held at the Bachelors' Quarters on Friday, Septem* ber 24, when Molonglo brought a team to do battle with the skilled players at the Quar* tors. Four games were played, each side winning two games, the test thus resulting in a draw. interested onlookers watched the struggle for supremacy on the mimic black and white battleground, and there is no doubt that the event will be long remembered by those who won, if not by those who lost. The results of the games were as under; Points. Quigley (Molonglo) v. Spinner (Bache lors) . 0 X Spreadbury (Molonglo) v. Irving (Bachcors). 1 0 Baron (Molonglo) v. Pike (Bachelors) 1 0 Emmett (Molonglo) v. J jany on (Bache lors) . Ol 2 2 Spinner quickly applied the quietus to Quig lcy with a masterly checkmate through the medium of his all-powerful queen and the two cunning knights. Spreadbury brought disaster to Irving almost as rapidly. Irving, unbeat able in argument, and grea...
