CAMP NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926
CAMP NOTES (By "Gleaner.") i , . . _ i. ._ _,i I note the plantations are being removed piecemeal to decorate the tables of residents. Would the Commission please furnish each re sident with a pair of pruning shears so that they will not have to break the branches off? White Cit}' is to get a tennis court which means that the camp site may be con sidered a permanency. How about Scott's and No. 41 Northbourne Camp has one man who should be in the Philharmonic Society. He can play a fiddle. Some of the residents of Riverbourne are moving to higher ground. I wonder if they expect another deluge.-. Cricket pitches are multiplying fast. Have noticed that new ones have recently been laid down at White City, Causeway, Capitol Hill, Eastlake, Northbourne, and South Ainslie. Will the Commission please whitewash the butts of the trees and the stumps that we have to scramble through to get to the Ains lie Trademen's Mess nowadays? Residents at the new camps at Ainslie «ind Russell would like t...
FEDERAL FOOTBALL CLUB CELEBRATION DANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926
?HM-MI»»II M- *M- ««^p«||-«»-m-.W~|t)c»|»i~-»Hp-!,»?-11»^-D»^-(I FEDERAL FOOTBALL CLUB CELEBRATION DANCE. A large muster of enthusiasts and support ers of the Federal Football Club attended a dance held at the Causeway Hall on Friday, 10th September, to celebrate the winning of the Federal Territory Football Premiership (Australian Rules) hy the Federal Football Club. The arrangements at the dance were splendidly adjusted, and in a simple and en tirely effective manner. Arbuckle's Band pro vided a very generous programme for up wards of 200 dancers. Mr. H. R. Buxton, the president of the club, was ably assisted by Mr. Yandell, the hon. secretary, and an energetic committee. Not the least contributing personality making for success was the genial M.C. work of Mr. Jerry Dillon; in particular, the latter's judgment of the waltzing competition called- tor high encomiums. The "Judgment of Paris" must, by comparison, have been quite child's play ni the selection of such peerless competito...
SPORT AT CANBERRA FUTURE REQUIREMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926
SPORT AT CANBERRA FUTURE REQUIREMENTS. With the transfer of large numbers of Com monwealth Parliament and Public Servants from Melbourne to Canberra next year, there is no doubt that all branches of sport at thc federal Capital will receive a considerate fillip. With a view to making adequate provision for the new-comers, statistics have been pre pared indicating the range of recreation in dulged in by them. These have been tabulated as follows: Tennis. 273 Cricket.. 166 Golf. 131 Swimming .. .. ,. 113 Bowls. 83 Football. 72 Total. 838 As far as football is concerned, it may be safely assumed that the large majority of those who have indicated preference for the winter pastime are devotees of the Austra lian game. Eighty-one Civil Servants did not state their preference in recreatiom
DISTRICT ACTIVITIES MOLONGLO [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926
DISTRICT ACTIVITIES &nbsp; MOLONGLO The weekly dances held at the local hall are continuing to prove most successful, and various worthy institutions in the community are benefiting áccórdingly. The district asso- ciation recently donated £2 15s to the Tennis Club for the purpose of purchasing a new net. A large crowd attended the dance on 25th September, and this proved the most popular of our Saturday night dances yet held. The usual dance was not held last week on account, of the holiday week-end. Good progress is being maintained with re- pairs to the tenements. &nbsp; Residents consider that the open space be tween the post ornee and the tenements gives a somewhat bleak outlook on life, and that judiciously planned afforestation in this locality would prove a boon to residents, and give some very necessary shade during the summer months. With the great activity in cricket in other districts, one is at a loss to understand why Molonglo does not put a good team in...

EX-SOLDIER PASSES. all soldiers will regret to learn of the pass- ing of Percy W. Windham, whose death oc- curred at the Canberra Hospital on Monday, 27th September. The Canberra Sub-Branch of Returned Sol- diers, in conjunction with the Limbless Sol- diers' Association, carried out the funeral ar- rangements with military honours. Padre Ward, Anglican minister, officiating at the church and graveside, gave a very impressive service. The coffin draped with the Union Jack, was borne to that beautiful little ceme tery situated in one of Canberra's most pic- turesque spots. The returned soldiers who attended were Mr. R. Rowe, hon. secretary Returned Soldiers League Sub-Branch; W. Hunt, Limbless Sol- diers' Association; P. McNamara, R.S.L. and others-also mates from the camp in which he resided. The late Mr. Windham had paid the penalty of the loss of a leg in the great war, and was a member of the famous 12th Bat talion. The whole of the Diggers in the Territory express their deepest s...
CAUSEWAY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 October 1926
CAUSEWAY Our suburb has been very quiet lately, everyone working and enjoying the finer weather. The Philharmonic operatic concert was greatly appreciated by all, and the news of Mr. Mowles departure comes as a severe &nbsp; shock to all patrons of good music. The local members of the Society are loud in their praises of the services rendered by him-he created the. orchestra and chorus almost from raw material in the course of a few months, and it is felt that no one can fill the posi tion so well ash. Good luck to Mr. Mowle &nbsp; wherever he goes. We aresorry to have to report Mr. Max &nbsp; well in hospital with pleurisy, but he is do ing well, and will be home in a few days. Mr. Bidgwell is home from hospital, but it will be a few weeks before he can work again. &nbsp; &nbsp; The cricket and tennis clubs are about to commence operations and look forward to some good contests. We congratulate Mr. and Mrs. Wallace, living in Main Street, on ...

DOWN EASTLAKE WAY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
DOWN EASTLAKE WAY When Canberraitis sears the soul And everything seems gray, There's sunshine "round the corner" sure, A guaranteed and lasting cure, Down Eastlake way. There's shops with windows good to see Aglow with fabrics gay, To cheer the heart and please the eye, Of every lucky passer-by, Down Eastlake way. And what is more, you'll find a peace Which, like the sunshine's ray, Dispels the gloom, and ousts the blues, And gives a fellow healthier views, Down Eastlake way. There's Friendship for the sore at heart, A grip when troubles weigh, That bucks you up, and lifts the load, And sends you siuging 'long the road, Down Eastlake way. -J.McR.D.
BACHELORS' BUTTONS (Devoted to the Interests of Residents at the Bachelors' Quarters.) [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
BACHELORS' BUTTONS (Devoted to the Interests of Residents at the Bachelors' Quarters.) The kitchen is NEARLY finished. Daffodil would like morning tea served in his room. Tom Fleming could attend to this simple comfort. ir A piano has been purchased out of the pro ceeds of the concert. Another concert was sug gested at a general meeting. The suggestion was wisely laughed at and ruled out of order. ir A massed meeting was held recently, where no end of complaints were fired at the House Committee, particularly the raising of the tariff, and the serving of raw carrots. Why doesn't the House Committee see that morn ing tea is served and the boys' boots cleaned? Happy Hawkins has been elected to the House Committee, so things should improve. ir Since Captain Cook returned from his long holiday in Melbourne he is very silent. How ever, we all repoice to know that he is to be re-submitted in twelve months' time. ir Cyril Courtney has bought a brand new 11 Singer ' ' oar, and it looks very...
