POPPY DAY APPEAL [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
POPPY DAY APPEAL "0 valiant hearts, who to our glory came Through dust of conflict and through battle flame: Tranquil you lie, your knightly virtue proved, Your memory hallowed in the land you loved." To-day is the eighth anniversary of Armis tice Bay, bringing with it the poignant memo ries of those grim dark days of conflict. The remembrance of our glorious dead will never fade while Australia is a nation, and here, in our national city particularly, lies the responsibility of keeping evergreen the valour of our Australian manhood in the great est war the world has ever known. Armistice Day is a day of mingled sorrow and rejoicing, and the appeal which Poppy ' 4 Day brings affords every true Australian an opportunity pf rendering practical sympathy towards the alleviation of distress among our returned soldiers and their dependents.

AINSLIE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
-4» AINSLIE There has been a big increase in member ship of our District Social Service Associa tion since the last meeting. Mr. A. E. Swane has been elected dele gate to the council of the Canberra Associa tion in place of Mr. P. McNamara, who has been appointed as vice-president of the council. Much activity is being displayed by the district committee for the good of the dis trict in particular, and Canberra in general. Some of the many matters being dealt with are:-A fire reel and part-time fireman to be stationed at the weatherboard cottages; also chemical fire extinguishers, and the installa tion of a public telephone at a suitable point; gravelling of all cottage paths and the fix ing of door-bells and taps in front gardens, A proposal for the fencing off of four acres to be used as a picnic ground, to be available for picnic parties, is also being sent forward to the council of the Associa-» tion for consideration.

EASTLAKE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
EASTLAKE Disappointment has been expressed gener ally at the shortness of the visit of the Great White Train. So great was the number who desired to view the various exhibits that it was found impossible for many to spend the time necessary, to adequately appreciate the excellence of the displays. «m M - M un un ir- uti -ti- r~ J. Willard, Interstate Tennis Champion, Champion of All-Ireland, and Australian re presentative at the Olympic Cames, has taken a five years' lease of a shop at Eastlake for the purpose of establishing a sports depot, and will be residing among us in the near future. He has intimated his intention of playing with the Eastlake Club. Members of the club are tightening up the loose strings in their racquets with a view to keeping him out of the "A" Grade. A feature of this settlement is its rapid development by private enterprise. On every side buildings are being erected on blocks which were sold at auction, and their sub stantial nature and handsome appearance...
CANBERRA PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY. PRESENTATION TO MR. E. A. MOWLE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
CANBERRA PHILHAR MONIC SOCIETY. PRESENTATION TO MR. E. A. MOWLE A very pleasant function, though with au unavoidably sad aspect, took place on 7th « October, the occasion being the presentation of a handsome piece of electro-plate, suitably inscribed, to Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Mowle, on their departure from Canberra. The venue of the little ceremony was the palatial Hotel Canberra, and, prior to the presentation, a series of musical items were contributed by Mrs. Paul, Miss Sutor, Messrs. Edwards, Honeysett, Coig and Pike, and re ceived appreciative recognition from the mem bers of the Society, especially Mr. Edwards1 cornet selection, which was particularly apt, his choice falling upon Tosti's telling and tragic "good-bye," After a supper served in the tasteful and artistic style characteristic of the Hotel Can berra management, Mr. J. H. Honeysett (So cial Service officer), in the course of a lauda tory speech, said that an atmosphere of gloom seemed to overhang members of the Society...
HEALTH NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
HEALTH NOTES (By "Sister.") 1 want to help you to know how to make and use certain local applications which are often prescribed by doctors for the relief of pain, inflammation or congestion. They take the form of cold, of heat, often combined with certain soothing drugs, and of substances which are known as counter-irritants. We shall confine ourselves this month to cold ap plications. Cold encourages muscular contraction, and acts by emptying the blood vessels near the surface, so relieving pain by reducing pres sure on sensitive nerve-endings, and lessening the accumulation of blood where increased blood supply is not needed for repairs. Cold applications may be dry or moist. They are suitable (1) where there is poor or relaxed muscular tone, as in laryngitis; (2) in bruis ing or wrenching of tissues in small areas, as in bruises or sprains, where they check swelling and relieve pain; (3) in inflamma tion confined in hard tissue, as with a corn, and sometimes with a whitlow, to r...
MOLONGLO. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
MOLONGLO. A meeting convened for thc purpose of forming a committee to deal with matters concerning the mothers and children's wel fare organisation was not as well attended as such a deserving object merited; but then Molonglo folk have taken very little interest in affairs of this kind since thc days of "Wally," which accounts, for the fact that Molonglo is the only "suburb" which does not possess a children 's playground. The gen eral feeling among residents is that a fire place in each house is more essential to the well-being of the children than a playground. Maybe it's not too late for the Commission to see the urgent necessity for this to be done. Dancing continues to be the popular form of amusement, while tennis and cricket also claim their devotees. The Boy Scouts are under new management in the person of Mr. Robertson, of the Bal main Troop. We are assisting the movement by presenting a set of boxing gloves.
BOXING THIS MONTH'S CONTESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
BOXING THIS MONTH'S CONTESTS. For the first time since the promotion of boxing and wrestling contests was placed on a sound basis by the Canberra Fire Brigade Recreation Club, the usual monthly session was not held during October. November, how ever, will be a particularly busy one for lov ers of the fistic and grappling arts, inasmuch as contests will be staged at the Causewav Hall on 11th and 25th of this month. The main contest for this evening will com prise fifteen two-minute rounds for the Heavy weight Championship of the Federal Capital Territory, between Jack Keogh (Canberra) and Jim Miller (Queanbeyan). Keogh and Miller are favourably known to local enthusiasts. Engaged in some excellent preliminaries are Roy Hopkins (Molongo) v. Les Graham (Causeway), and Horrie Raynor v. Paddy Nye, both local lads. Hopkins and Graham fought a close battle at their last meeting, and Graham is confi dent as to his ability of turning the tables on his tall opponent as a result of to-night 's...

CANBERRA SOCIAL SER VICE ASSOCIATION FIRST ANNUAL REPORT. Ladies and Gentlemen,-In presenting the first annual report of the Association, your Council has pleasure in recording a splendid year of progress in the interests of the social well-being of residents of Canberra.

WESTLAKE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
WESTLAKE Owing to the recent warm days the gardens are showing to great advantage, and both flowers and vegetables are showing something for thc hours of labour spent upon them. Due to the efforts of a live committee, the social side of Westlake is now being well catered for. It was decided to purchase a piano for the hall, and to hold a dance every alternate Saturday. An orchestra of three makes it hard for the dancers to find time to partake of the tasty supper which is a fea ture of these events. The hall has been im proved considerably, and the committee still have further improvements in hand, which it is hoped will be carried out at an early date. The next dances will be held on Saturday, the 6th and 20th November, when we hope tb see a number of dancers from ot&er centres. Readers should make special note of 26th November, when this District Association will hold a dance at the Causeway Hali in aid of tne Piano Fund. Tt is also interesting to note that a branch of the...
DISTRICT ACTIVITIES ACTON [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
DISTRICT ACTIVITIES ACTON Silice the annual general meeting of the Canberra Soeial Service Association the Acton District Association is fast gaining new mem bers, twenty-five having recently been enrolled, with the promise of many more to join up. We are hoping that residents of the Bache lors' Quarters will co-operate towards the bet terment of the soeial well-being of Canberra's prettiest suburb. Chiefly owing to the energy displayed by residents of the Acton cottages, ,the tennis court by the Acton Hall is rapidly assuming shape, and it is hoppd that the opening games will be played ia the course of the next few weeks. The work of excavation was a fairly considerable task, but now that the ant-bed and gravel have been laid and roiled, the back of the work has been broken. The remaining work consists of fencing the court, which we hope to have completed by the end of next week. The road in front of the portable cottages is in a very bad state just at present, and clouds of dust a...

CONTENT [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
CONTENT The great things of the earth we still may own, Though from fierce reckless striving we retire, And dream no more proud dreams of high desire, We can rejoice in poverty-this throne Which none assails: food have we; a hearth stone That glows irradiant with gracious fire; And mutual love to comfort and inspire, However hard the way, however lone. This is the path of wisdom. True life needs A humbler sacrifice and sweeter song Than our strained hearts can reach through valorous deeds. Content with food and raiment, let us bring Fresh inspiration to each trivial thing, And freely, bravelyr meekly pass along. -Arthur K. Sabin. j
