RUGBY LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 June 1925

RUGBY LEAGUE. Thaist and 2nd grades of the Feder al Rovers met at Molonglo on Sunday last. in the presence of a very large crowd, much interest being taken in this match as it was a try-out to pick the team to meet the Warrigals, and judging by the way this game was played the Warrigals are up against it this time. There were no beg par dons and a few inquiries resulted which goes to show more than ever how necessary it-is for these clubs to provide themselves with a first aid outfit, there not being any bandages or iodine on the ground when a player sustained an injury to his head and had to be sent away for medical treat ment. Nevertheless this was a fast and furious game which resulted in a win for the first grade by 24 points to 8 "Murphy" Clarke was in great form and scored two tries and one goal for the winners. Other scorers were Bethel, Forbutt, Cook and Hazel grove each a try, the two first-named each kicking a goal. For the losers Bladen and Thompson each scored a try and ...

FOOTBALL AUSTRALIAN RULES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 June 1925

FOOTBALL AUSTRALIAN RULES. By J.H.T. Odn Saturday last the Federals met Acton on the Westridge ground in the presence of about 250 people. This match attracted a deal of interest as only four points separated the Federal and Acton Clubs in the premiership list, and both teams went. on to the ground confident of success, in fact both were over confident, with the result that the play was nothing like what was expected. The teams en tered into the game as if there was no ball on the ground and sci',ambly play was the order right fhroughout, but Acton team was not long on the ground before they came to the con clusion that to play the ball was a winning game, and for a little over two quarters they did so, with the result that they put up a very handy lead which looked as -if it was going to land them the winners of the match. In the final quarter, however, the Federals woke up to the fact that there was a football on the ground, and kept their hands off Acton. This move caught Acton n...

(Published by arrangement). DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 June 1925

(Published by arrangement). DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS. A formidable movement has been launched againstProhibition by the New York "Committee of Fifty" re ports the New York "Herald-Tri bune." "The Committee," continues the paper, "comprises persons of note in different walks of life, including members of Congress, who contend that a grave situation, attributed to the" prohibition law, confronts the United States. They hold that for the country's moral, social and eco nomic welfare, it is imperative that immediate steps be taken to remedy conditions. "The Association Against the Pro hibition Amendments :has declared that "no such important committee to deal-with so grave a crisis has been formed since the Declaration of Independence was signed by a similar committee of representative citizens and statesmen in 1776." Branding Prohibition as a menace, the Committee says: "The present prohibition laws are impractical, unnecesarily severe, and bad in their essence. They do not have popular s...

TELECRAPHIG NEWS SYDNEY, Thursday. In future education in High Schools will be free, the regulation providing for payment of fees having been re voked. A minute to this effect was issued yesterday by Mr. Mutch, Minister for Education. The inquiry was commenced yes terday into the collapse of the new building of the British-Australian Tobacco CompIany in Melbourne on April 24th, when four jmen were killed.. The counsel for the Crown intimated that the evidence would show that defective material had been used, and would also show that the builders had not adhered to the specifications.

MOTOR NOTES SEEING THE WINTER HIGHWAY [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 June 1925

MOTOR NOTES SEEING THE WINTER HIGHWAY In these times of short days and dark wintry nights it becomes dou bly essential that the motorist should look to the lighting equipment of his car, both with a view to remedy ing any incipient faults that may later on lead to failure and to add ing to its general efficiency. The proper care of the accumula tor is a subject that we have touched on more than once in these notes, but we would insert a reminder that summer or winter it must be looked to and kept charged and liled. The electric cables which run underneath the chas'sis should be inspected since they are in an exposed position anas pick up quite a 'lot of mud and wa-. ter. This in time will rot through the heavy protective covering of oute irnsulation and thus make the cables more liable to chafe against the frame, causing a short circuit. The cables should be wiped clean and then given a good coat of enamel to preserve them. Check over all points where loose connections may have deve...
