MAGIC AND MYSTERY BACHELORS ' QUARTERS CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926

MAGIC AND MYSTERY BACHELORS ' QUARTERS CONCERT. Residents at the Bachelors' Quarters, and their friends, turned up in full force at the Causeway Hall on 20th September, on the oc casion of the concert organised by the House Committee, in order to raise funds for the provision of a. piano at the Quarters. As a result of the attendance at the committee's first concert, the piano should be much nearer realisation, the substantial sum of £30 being netted towards this worthy object. The main item of the evening was a dis play of magic and mystery by Cyril Court ney, who, as a conjuror and illusionist, "stands on his own" among local wizards. Mr. Courtney's exhibition was very much ap preciated by the audience, although a lack of collaboration between the principal and his assistants was at times noticeable. The musical part of the evening's enter tainment was entrusted to Messrs. Pike, Tubb, Attweil and Douglas, assisted by an orches tra with Mr. Ashdown at the piano. Mr. Les. Edwards' c...

THE GREAT WHITE TRAIN TO VISIT CANBERRA ON OCTOBER 22. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926

THE GREAT WHITE TRAIN TO VISIT CANBERRA ON OCTOBER 22. It is the duty of every citizens of Canberra to make a visit to the Australian-Made Pre ference League Train when it arrives here on Friday, 22nd October. This great moving exhibition of Austra lian-made goods brings with it a national message to every one of us, and we should readily learn the important lesson which it is intended to convey. The object of the train is to advertise and "boost" Australian made goods, and endeavour to get the people to give preference to such in their purchases. The train consists of 15 large Bogie C. Vans painted white, and illuminated by elec tric light, both inside and out. Each van illustrates some particular Australian product, such as furniture, wines, hats, clothes, lollies, woods, etc. The fifteen vans are connected up in such a way that entrance is gained at one end and exit at the opposite end.

ACTON [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926

It is somewhat regrettable to record that social service activities at. Acton are prac- : ideally confined to the energetic work of the residents of tbe portable cottages. As a case in point, these enthusiasts have worked hard on the construction of the tennis court along side Acton Hall, and have received very little assistance from other residents in the dis trict. lt is up to the boys at the Bachelors' Quarters to join in with their Acton confreres in the best interests of the suburb. Mr. Saunders, who is the representative of Acton on the Council of the Canberra Social Service Association, will be glad to hear of intending members of the Acton District As sociation from the Uachelors' Quarters. The annual subscription is quite a nominal one, of one shilling, and entitles a member to a voice in the management of welfare activities in the district. The Acton Sports C round is in magnificent order just now, and now that the lake scheme lias been temporarily set aside, residents of ...

WESTLAKE Since the formation of the Westlake Social Service District Association residents seem to have taken a new lease of life, and under the energetic guidance of Mr. Les. Dwyer, our hon. secretary, and Mr. S. Champ, delegate to the Canberra Social Service Association, the welfare of inhabitants is in good hands, and far greater interest is being shown in the wel fare movement, and our membership is in creasing steadily. The long-looked-forward-to children's play ground has at last been constructed on the reserve immediately in front of the post of uce, and the many children in the district have been highly delighted at the innova tion. Among tho?e who rendered great assis tance in the construction of the playground are Messrs. R. and L. Law, G. Meyers, R. beattie, S. and J. Champ, W.

SOCCER FOOTBALL SUCCESSFUL SEASON CONCLUDED. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926

SOCCER FOOTBALL SUCCESSFUL SEASON CONCLUDED. The final of the "knoek-out" competition run by the Federal Territory Association, and played at the Acton Spofts Ground on Sep tember ll, brought down the curtain on the most successful season yet experienced in the history of the round ball code in the Federal Territory. In past seasons fixtures of a spas modic nature only have been played, but at the beginning of the season just concluded,. strenuous efforts were made by enthusiasts of the game in Canberra to form a strong Asso ciation and place the game on a sound foot ing. The extent of the measure of success that attended these efforts is exemplified by the fact that no less than six teams affiliated with the Association and played regularly in competition games. To the Burns Club goes the well-won honour of not only securing the Association's League Premiership, but also the - - set of gold medals in the "knock-out" com petition. The club had a splendidly balanced side, and the bal...

CRICKET. OPENING OF SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926

CRICKET. (By "Silly Point.M) OPENING OF SEASON. Glorious weather favoured the opening of the cricket season on Saturday, 2nd October. The greatly increased number of teams affiliat ing with the Federal Territory Association this season-twenty-four in all-necessitated much hard work on the part of the Associa tion, and particularly the new clubs-in oïder that everything should be in order for the commencement of competitive matches. In this regard it may be mentioned that in addition to the large number of existing cricket grounds, no less than six new concrete wickets were laid during the past fortnight, which reflects great credit on the voluntary efforts of. the members of the various clubs, and the Social Service organisation for ex pediting arrangements for the construction of the wickets. These were laid down at East lake, Causeway, White City, Capitol Hill, Northbourne (Ainslie United) and South Ainslie. The 24 teams competing in this year's competition have been graded as fol...

PRINTING OFFICE QUARTERS NEW MESS AT EASTLAKE, SUCCESSFUL INAUGURAL DANÇE. The new printers' mess at Eastlake pre sented a scene of great animation and charm on the occasion of the first dance held in the new building on 17th September. The dance-unostentatiously mentioned by residents at the Quarter* as a f< house warmer"-proved a great success. The resi dents at the new Quarters have quickly got to work in forming a very progressive Wel fare Committee among themselves, the outcome of which was the splendid reception so enthu siastically given to their inaugural efforts. The President (Mr. W. S. Watkin), the Hon. Secretary (Mr. Sutton), and Hon. Trea surer (Mr. E. Phipps), supported by an ener getic committee, were all-jointly and sever ally-quite indefatigable in their entirely ef fective efforts to please.
