CANBERRA COMMUNITY PLAYERS (Alfred J. W. Pate, S. H. Beck, W. H. Bertwistie, C. J. Courtney.) [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
CANBERRA COMMUNITY PLAYERS -*-. (Alfred J. W. Pate, S. H. Beck, W. H. Bertwistie, C. J. Courtney.) Within the past few weeks, with many pangs in labor, was born to Canberra a new infant. This child, to wit, The Can- berra Community Players, may, if taken to our hearts and helped kindly along the road to maturity, be the means of provid- ing bright patches in our, otherwise, some- what colourless existence. Canberra, to-day, is about to realise the true value and tremendous force of Com- munity Spirit and its stronger brother, Community Effort. Community effort is already abroad, having been seized upon by the Federal Capital Commission as a means of supply- ing recreational facilities which, other- wise, might have been long delayed and, perhaps, vainly sought for. Among the facilities that this effort is about to bring the community, are halls for use as places of indoor recreation. In these halls it will be quite possible, by fur- ther community effort, to provide the po- pulace w...
CANBERRA'S GAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925

A welcome from Canberra cricketing circles is in store for Mr. J. H. Honeysett, who has assumed the position of Social Service Officer. Judging from com- ment by the "Hobart Mercury," his de- parture from Tasmania is looked upon EB a distinct loss to cricket activities in that State. Mr. Honeysett has been for many years one of Tasmania's leading cricketers» both as a player and an administrator. In the latter capacity, he has been one of South Hobart's delegates to the District Commit- tee, a member of the Board of Manage- ment, and Chairman of the South Hobart Club, and to him is due the credit for several innovations improving the man- agement of the game in Tasmania. Effi- cient coaching is said to be one of his pet ideas. As a player, he has participated in In* ter-State matches, and in representative games between N...
DECORATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
DECORATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY, -é By "Pocus." Decorative photography as a field for the profitable employment of the camera is frequently overlooked by photographers. The subject is broad and comprehensive, and anyone interested will find in it great possibilities. The field is not limited to one or two special branches. Decoration is applied to every environment and commodity of modern civilization, and there is no reason as many photographers have demonstrat- ed profitably, why photography should not be used for many purposes, which are gen- erally assumed to be within the province of the draftsman only. Within recent years people have become more keenly alive to the effect of beauty in articles in common use. Most of the objects in everyday life are, we know, util- itarian, but there is no reason why they should not be beautiful. Â well-made article is a joy to the eye, but if, in addi- tion, its design is artistic, its appeal is enhanced. Modern decorative art has made great strides in...
EVENTIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
EVENTIDE. -A Sweet Eventide soft stealeth over all; Slowly the day doth die. The shadows deepen, and night breezes call Pales the red sky. O'er yonder peak, whose solemn majesty Above the plain extends, A white, enveloping, soft canopy Of mist descends. The Kookaburra to the setting sun Outpours with ribald zest His lay of happiness for day now done, His song of rest. Now all is silent, not a sound awakes The valley and the steep. The firmament a starry splendour takes, The world's asleep. BILLY B. _^¿_._. ? _
INDOOR RECREATION COMMITTEE. WHITE CITY CAMP RECREATION ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
INDOOR RECREATION COMMITTEE. WHITE CITY CAMP RECREATION ROOM. A deputation, headed by Mr. A. Bones, and representing the White City Camp, waited on the Indoor Recreation Commit- tee on Wednesday, 11th November, and put before the Committee a request for assistance in the erection of a recreation room at this camp. Mr. Bones explained the need for the room to enable men to have a quiet time away from the general recreation hall, which he said was a trifle noisy and crowded at times. He explained that the deputation desired the construc- tion of a room of sufficient area to permit of the installation of two billiard tables, which would be provided by the men themselves under approved conditions, and a smaller room for the operation of wire- less sets, the holding of debates, and which could also be used for the purpose of a library. The Camp would supply the labor if the Commission would donate the ma- terial. The Chairman of the Committee (Mr. D. Kelly) assured the deputation of the ...
FEDERAL TERRITORY CRICKET ASSOCIATION [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
FEDERAL TERRITORY CRICKET ASSOCIATION -# Canberra v. Staff Cadets, R.M.C., played on the Duntroon Oval. Cadets were dis- missed for the low total of 39, the bowline: of Geo. O'Neill being deadly. This bowler finished with a splendid average of 8 for 23 runs, and was well supported by a splendid fielding side. Scores: Cadets 39, Canberra 41. Northbourne v. McCarthy's XI. played at Red Hill. The latter were dismissed for 59 and 26. The great pair, McDonald and Russell, bowled right through, each obtaining 10 wickets for 43 and 45 re- spectively. Scores: Northbourne, 8 for 148, N. W. Jeffries 48, R. Correy. Mc- Carthy's XI., 59 and 26. Won outright by Northbourne. Duntroon v. Westridge, played at West- ridge. Westridge caused a sensation by dismissing a splendid batting team for 25, mainly owing to the bowling of Adams, who captured 6 for ll runs. Scores: Dun- troon, 25; Westridge, 156. Eastlake v. Hall, played at Eastlake. Hall batted well, closing with two down for 173, W. Tickner (1...
ORGANISED SUNDAY SPORT [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
ORGANISED SUNDAY SPORT . . _ -A._ -w Last month a modest paragraph at the end of a column afforded some publicity in this journal (in a way, unnecessary publi- city, because the "bush telegraph" had already broadcasted the official intimation conveyed to the various Sports Associa ; tions in the Territory) to the official de- cision of the Commission that ORGANISED sport could not be permitted within the Territory on Sundays, and that athletic games must not proceed in the vicinity of buildings where Divine service is con- ducted whilst service is in progress. We feel assured that there is no feeling of hostility in respect of the latter prohi- bition, but are advised that the former de- cision has met with a mixed reception in the community, owing largely, we think, to a misconception of its meaning. There need be no Sunday without healthy sport within the Territory. If only organised sport be prohibited, there is surely nothing to prevent the men of a camp, for instance, playing a...

THE SEASON'S GREETINGS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
THE SEASON'S GREETINGS -4 Year by year through the ages, until the years have lengthened into decades, and the decades into centuries, Christmas has revived in every Christian heart, and even in hearts that once were Christian, the spirit of friendship and goodwill. Year by year, the generations have stood at the threshold of the future, pregnant with the promise of better things. So do we, a community in Canberra, watch now the approach of the anniversary of the time when the wide, wide world was one grand community, nation perhaps un- known to nation, but living in amity and peace. So do we stand to-day watching the Old Year passing down the road of No Return, the Old Year with its joys and its sorrows, its bitter days, and its happy memories. So do we stand also at the threshold of the future which is ours to make or mar. Let us then put the past behind us. Let us stand together for the future, so that in Canberra, at least, if our influence can- not be exerted elsewhere, we shal...

THE HOUSEWIFE'S COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
THE HOUSEWIFE'S COLUMN. _A._ V 1 ? By "Mona." From this column it is hoped much mu- tual help may be derived by an interchange . of ideas on matters relating to the home and correspondence is cordially invited. I think the question engaging most at- tention at present is how to deal with the fly pest. More particularly does this affect the newly-arrived housewife and those who live in houses which have no wire screens. The fly seems to be tirelessly on the watch for an open door, a crack in a cupboard, or any other avenues of entrance to the home and food, which it immediately con- taminates. To show how necessary it is to assist in the destruction of the fly and to destroy all likely breeding places I cannot do better than quote some extracts from a Melbourne University Extension Lecture delivered recently by an eminent Bacteriologist. He stated: "The domestic fly .will increase to the enormous number of six billions in one season. Its eggs hatch into maggots in from one-half to fo...
CHILDREN'S COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
CHILDREN'S COLUMN. -« Dear Children,-Since the "Community News" was started, the Editor has been trying to make it so that everybody would like it, but last month and the month be- fore, he had so many big people to deal with that he didn't have a chance to do anything for the boys and girls. Well, now, your turn has come and lie is going to set aside a- part of the paper for you. The rest of the paper has a lot of big words in it that the little ones amongst you do not understand and so you Will not read them. Besides, there are no stories or puzzles or games that boys and girls like. So, in this part of the paper, we shall have what you like. Now it is a long time since we read children's stories, and we are not quite sure as to what you want. So it is for you to tell us. What would yon like a story about? Write and tell us. We shall give a Christmas Box of 5/~ for i&è best letter, Wften you write, tell m how old you are. Be sure you write i:i:iiin>iiitt4ii&lt;i...
MUSICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 December 1925
MUSICAL NOTES. -v The nucleus of what it is hoped will become a really good orchestra, for the purpose of studying good music, is now meeting regularly on Tuesday evenings at 7.45 in Canberra. The practices are from 7.45 p.m. to 10 p.m. each week, and divide themselves into three terms of about thir- teen weeks each; the orchestra going into recess for about six weeks at Christmas, four weeks in mid-winter, and two weeks at Michaelmas. The conductor will be glad to hear of new members, players either of wind or of stringed instruments, and there is a va- cancy for a really good Timpani player. Applications may be made in writing to Mrs. W. G. Duffield, Hotel Canberra, who will arrange for intending members to pass the simple test required of them before joining. A small fee of 5/- a term, or of 10/- for the whole year is charged in order that a library of the best music may be gradually purchased and kept in good re- pair.
