The Federal Capital Pioneer The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. APRIL 29, 1925. COMMUNISM [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League.   APRIL 29, 1925. COMMUNISM The eyes of the recognised leaders of the Labour parties in Britain, and the Dominions, are having a rude awakening to the fact that they have too willingly taken to their fold enemies in disguise—not enemies of the capitalistic system, but secret     enemies of the working classes of the whole of this British Commonwealth. Mr. Ramsay MacDonald, at a con- ference this month in London of the Independent Labour Party, broke   new ground when he stated, "It is   time we considered our position in regard to the unequal competition of German production to the detriment of the British workman." He stated   that the rate of wages in Germany against that of England enabled Ger- many to dump her goods at a cheap price which British conditions could not compete against, and that had a lot to do with ...

FEDERAL TERRITORY AND DISTRICT CRICKET ASSOCIATION CRICKET IN GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

FEDERAL TERRITORY AND DISTRICT CRICKET ASSOCIATION   CRICKET IN GENERAL. In a previous issue of the "Pio- neer" we reiviewed extensively the progress and stability of the Federal Territory Tennis Association and now we review the Association which heads this column. We realise the increased interest which is taken in the cricket compe- titions, and each season makes the   matches the principal Saturday af- ternoon pastime for cricket enthu- siasts. The Ainslie Club has established a unique performance in the cricket sphere of the Territory, in so far as to find them very near, if not at the top of' the tree. Considering that their club com- prises little more than a baker's dozen of members, it is a pleasure to think the team does so well. To mention the players who work. hard to sustain the interest and good fellowship that prevails in the Ainslie Club it would be necessary to men- tion the whole of the club members, but as a keen supporter and enthu- sias...

CANBERRA AND WASHINGTON VISITORS' VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

CANBERRA AND WASHINGTON VISITORS' VIEWS. Sir Albert Gould, former President of the Australian Senate, said at the last meeting of the Executive that when he was at Washington, Parlia- ment was under the impression that the Capital was completely deserted. He thought that Canberra would be deserted for the next generation, except when Parliament was in ses- sion. In his judgment when Can- berra had been as long established   as Washington is now it would be   equally as great as Washington is to-day.   Mr. T. M. Shakespeare, M.L.C.,   said that he considered Canberra will be even greater than Washington in the years to come. He had visited both places and Canberra had na- tural conditions that Washington did not possess. It was not generally known that Canberra, with an alti- tude of nearly 2,000 feet, was the second highest Capital in the world. Lisbon, the Capital of Portugal, be- ing the highest.     &am...

TENNIS. SOME FINER POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 May 1925

TENNIS.     SOME FINER POINTS. By "Play Fair." Following my notes in the April issue of the "Pioneer," I continue with hints on the "Finer Points of Tennis."     Having secured good material you are ready and prepared to meet your opponents in friendly battle, but before you step on to the court, make sure you are attired as a tennis play- er should be. This applicable to both ladies and gentlemen, for nothing is more gratifying and encouraging to the tennis enthusiast and supporter than to see the players dresed as be- fits this wholesome game. The absence of correct dress is very noticeable especially in coun- try centres, and the individual clubs should endeavour to institute by-laws to deal with this very important question. When you take your stand on the court and you are the "server," re-   ember there are many rules of ten-   nis, which, particularly in important evetns are very costly when infrin-...

BLANDFORDIA'S NEW TENNIS COURTS OPENING CEREMONY [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 May 1925

BLANDFORDIA'S NEW TENNIS COURTS ---o--- OPENING CEREMONY   By Navil-luso. After a period of pathetic gazing at other settlements taking their rec- reation, Blandfordia at last finds it-   self possessed of a Tennis Club with Courts to play on whenever the members feel inclined. For the mo- ment, it would appear that the Blandfordia Football Club is proving a serious counter-attraction. The Courts were officially opened on Saturday afternoon, April 25th, by Mr. J. H. Goodwin, who expressed the hope that the residents would find in them a splendid means of recreation in regard to which the   old regime had always done its best for the people. Interesting speeches of welcome were then made by repre- sentatives of other Clubs, who hoped that Blandfordia would take an active part in all competitions. A pleasant surprise was in store for the organisers in the presence of Sir John Harrison and Mr. C. H. Gorman, two of the Canberra Com- misioners. Both...

CONCERT FOR SCHOOL PIANO [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 May 1925

CONCERT FOR SCHOOL PIANO A crowded hall, and many could not get in, taxed Acton Hall, Can bera at a concert held on Saturday evening, 16th inst, in aid of the above. Mr. McDonald, late of Can- berra, and now of Queanbeyan, had arranged a splendid programme. It was thought the unsettled weather would have marred the attendance, but, as is usually the case when it is for the benefit of the school children, a bumper house was the result. The concert opened with an over- ture, 'Moonlight Sonata, (Beethovan) Miss Sommerlad, which was heartily applauded; this was followed by a solo, well rendered by Mr. Raff. "Ave Maria" was sung by Mrs. Les. Edwards to her own accompaniment. A pianoforte solo by a very young and able player, entitled "Restless Night," was rapturously applauded by the audience who were quick to appreciate the ability of this talented child, Miss Mollie James, who has just received a special medal   awarded by the London College of Music. The young player was ...

THE GRAND OLD MAN OF ENGLISH JOURNALISM [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 May 1925

THE GRAND OLD MAN OF ENGLISH JOURNALISM In the last issue of the "Pioneer," we had an article on Mr. John Gale, J.P., dealing with the account of a complimentary dinner tendered to him at the Hotel Canberra on the occasion of his 95th birthday, and each speaker acclaimed him not only as the "Father of Canberra," but as the oldest living journalist this side of the equator, and the "Grand Old Man of Australian Journalism." We stated in that article from evi- dence we had just received we could prove that John Gale was the "Grand Old Man of English Journalism," the oldest living journalist, at 95, in the English speaking world, and who was now completing the M.S.S. of a reliable and interesting "History of Canberra," the Federal Capital of Autralia. The Editor of "Chambers's Jour- nal" in the January issue stated: "First and foremost among its living contributors "Chambers's Journal" is proud to reckon Thomas Hardy, O.M., and G.O.M. of Englishl letters.

EASTLAKE TENNIS CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 May 1925

EASTLAKE TENNIS CLUB The financial statement in connec- tion with the effort by the Eastlake Tennis Club to raise funds for the relief of Mrs. Dunn, Molonglo, was presented at the usual general meeting of the Club on Wednesday, 6th May. The Club had intended applying for the right to run the refreshment and afternoon tea stall at the Can- berra Races, for the benefit of their club's funds, but recognising the de- serving case of Mrs. Dunn, immedi- ately offered to undertake the re- sponsibility of running these stalls   and donating the proceeds to the Re- lief Fund.   Despite the fact that the atten- dance was below expectations, and the day cool, a profit of £22/4/3 was made. This amount, however, does not reflect the time and work of the ladies and members of the club, who had made provision in anticipation of a profit of £50. A large quantity of food-stuffs was not used. Special mention was made of the generosity of' Mr. Moore, carrier, of Eastlake, who...
