THE SPEAKER'S CHAIR THE LESSON IT CONVEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
THE SPEAKER S CHAIR THE LESSON IT CONVEYS. (By C. J. Griffith.) The ceremony of the presentation of the Speaker's Chair for the use of the Federal Parliament within the essentially Federal Territory of the Commonwealth, which took place on Monday, 11th October, 1926, con veyed a significance far greater than that in dicated in the mere material compliment, great and graceful as it was. Notwithstanding that the Commonwealth of Australia is an entirely democratic one, there is no evading the dominant factor that Demo cracy is not alien to sentiment and tradition. Sometimes, unfortunately, it may be thought (by the unreasoning few) that Democracy and loyalty (to the Throne) are incompatible; but the function referred to was a noble and convincing demonstration to the contrary. Emblamatic significance is inherent in human nature-no less in this age than in the pre historic-and, indeed, it is persistently patent that, as education and enlightenment spreads, so does that appreciation prev...
COMMUNITY LIBRARY STEADY PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
COMMUNITY LIBRARY STEADY PROGRESS. The Committee of the Canberra Community Library is one of the livest organisations in the social service movement, and its activi ties have penetrated into» practically every corner of the city area. The Committee has been busily engaged in meeting the demands of the various centres for all classes of reading matter, and now that the Committee includes representatives who act as librarians in the different camps and centres, the work of distribution has been greatly facilitated. There is now, fortunately, no room for com plaint by any resident that facilities do not exist in our midst for obtaining bright and up-to-date literature. If a man is a resident of a camp, all he has to do is to obtain touch with the camp library representative, and he will do the rest. As an indication of the progressive methods of the Committee, it should be stated that since assuming control of the Library, the number of volumes has been increased from 400 to 1,000. It ...

WHITE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
WHITE CITY. On Sunday, October 24, a moonlight picnic was held at the Cotter River, but the moon sold us a pup by not showing up. How- ever, a big fire, and "Kid" Dencio on the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; banjo, assisted by the portable gramophone (kindly confiscated by Ryan, from Attwell), made the night at the Cotter "just the thing." &nbsp; A good supper of good things was appre- ciated by the fifty joy-seekers assembled. -M»-M-iiiM.iwi Mi.M-»M»-M-»M»-M-w «I limn Willimill. > mi-.«»-.

CANBERRA PHILHAR MONIC SOCIETY A well-attended meeting of the Society was held at the Social Service Building, Acton, on Tuesday, November 2, Mr, J. G. Bowditch oc cupying the chair. The main business of the evening was the consideration of the finan cial position of the Society, its future ac tivities, and the appointment of a conductor, hon. secretary, and librarian, consequent upon the resignation of the late conductor, Mr. E. A. Mowle. The acting-hou. secretary, Mr. J. H. Honey sett, explained that correspondence had been received from Mr. Mowle, intimating that a complete financial statement of the affairs of the Society had been forwarded, and it was resolved that Messrs. Honeysett, Bowditch, and B. J. Kelly should act as a sub-commit tee to examine the balance sheet as presented by the late conductor, and submit a state ment showing the exact financial position of the Society to the next general meeting. On tiie motion of Mr. Oakey, seconded by Mr. Kelly, it was unanimously r...
HOME NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
HOME NOTES. (By "Mona.") Hhaddocks arc now obtainable from thc greengrocer, and make a very excellent mar malade, having a slightly hitter flavour and forming a nice firm jelly. Shaddock Marmalade.-Wash and wipe the fruit, then slice it thinly; to every 1 lb. of fruit allow eight breakfastcups of cold water. Place the fruit and water in an enamel or china vessel, and allow it to stand overnight. Place the seeds in a cup, cover with water, and drain the liquid off the seeds into the pulp on the following day. Place all on the stove, bring to boil, and boil for ten minutes; put aside again until the fol lowing day, then boil until the skins are tender. The time will depend on the fresh ness of the fruit. When tender, weigh the pulp, i.e., the fruit and water, and to every one pound of pulp add one and a half pounds of sugar. Stir until all the sugar has dis solved before allowing it to boil. (If allowed to boil before all the sugar has dissolved the marmalade is liable to become granu...
CRICKET NORTHBOURNE AND QUEANBEYAN UNBEATEN. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
CRICKET (By "Silly Point.") NORTHBOURNE AND QUEANBEYAN UNBEATEN. As a result of matches played to date ii the "A" Grade competition of the Federa Cricket Association, it would appear thai Northbourne and Queanbeyan are going t( make a bold bid for premiership honours ii their respective divisions. Both teams havt won all their matches to date, and there i* no doubt that, on the season's showing, these clubs possess two of the best all-round com binations in the Territory. Scoring generally has been on the low side, which in many instances denotes lack of prac tice. Jeffries 127 (Northbourne), L. Maloney (Ainslie) 125, McDonald 109 (Northbourne), and A. Scott (Northbourne) 102 not out, have reached the century mark. Lyell Maloney (Ainslie) is again producing remarkably con sistent form with the bat, his batting average now being worthy of a Kippax. Owing to the general batting weakness of most of the teams, bowlers invariably reap a rich harvest each Saturday. Ziems and O'Connor (Que...

TENNIS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
TENNIS The Association competitions have been completed, the honours going to the Quean beyan Club in each grade. The interest in competition matches dur ing the season has been very keen, and the prospects for next year are exceedingly bright. The Association has received advice from the Commission that the question of Central Association Courts is receiving consideration, and it is anticipated that something definite will be known at nu early date. It is hoped to send two gent.'s teams and one ladies' team to Country Week in Syd ney this season, and it is thought that the Association will creditably acquit itself in thc various events. Tennis enthusiasts will be delighted to hear that Jim Willard, Australia's tennis represen tative at the last Olympic games, is coming to reside at Canberra, having leased a shop at Eastlake, where he is going to open an up to-date sports depot. The Association extends a hearty welcome to Mr. Willard, and realises that his presence on the courts, an...
AN OLD TIMER'S MUSINGS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
AN OLD TIMER 'S MUSINGS lu which are set forth certain musings of an English gentleman of the 18th century, as he tarries at Canberra during his visit from the regions above. Now did I journey to the township you wot of, viz., Queanbeyan; and there did I sample the fiery spirits, and the slack ale, and hav ing sampled, and found them wanting greatly in flavour and purity--I did return to Canberry, and partook of a dish of tea, and priding myself on my sobriety, vowed I should abstain until I do reach a city where in my thirst may be slaked without insult or injury to my innards. The ends of the week do have a great call for me, and I do find much interest in view ing the sports of the moderns, and have even joined in them, and did find much pleasure and profit in the game they call "two-up" a most simple game in appearance, but re quiring a great skill to win. I did have the good fortune to win £4, and a modern did confide unto me how I could not lose if I did use pennies with the i...
GREAT WHITE TRAIN FINE RECEPTION AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
GREAT WHITE TRAIN FINE RECEPTION AT CANBERRA. The visit of the Great White Train of the Australian-Made Preference League to Can berra had been eagerly anticipated, and when the train drew in at the Eastlake siding at 2 p.m., on Saturday, 23rd October, a large crowd, in which school children predominated, gave the train a splendid welcome. Prior to the erection of the necessary platforms and gangways, a long queue of the general public had been formed, and right throughout the afternoon a steady stream of visitors passed through the train. The ..various exhibits proved a veritable eye-opener to those who had no idea as to Australia's capabilities as a manufacturing nation. Space precludes from giving a detailed description of the various manufacturers' exhibits; but the deserted ap pearance of the vans allotted to the display of Australian-made wines and malt liquors, was freely commented upon by some of the thirs tier visitors. Punctilious observance was therefore given by the Leag...

CANBERRA BAND [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
&nbsp; CANBERRA BAND (By H. Howe, Organising Secretary.) The Canberra Band has been making fine progress lately, and with the introduction of several new players,who are not only good &nbsp; performers, but staunch supporters of the Band, we hope in the near future to become a live force in the Canberra musical world. The Band has been in public a good deal lately, first at the Causeway on the occasion of the working bee on the children's play ground, and then again at the Parliamentary Fete to welcome the overseas Parliamentary delegates at Hotel Canberra. On the following Sunday-thanks to the courtesy of the Federal Capital Commission the Commission 'bus transported the Band to the Canberra Hospital, where a very creditable performance was given for the benefit of patients in hospital. The Band also enlivened proceedings at the Presbyterian Fete held at the Acton Hall on October 30. Last Sunday the Band com menced a series of performances at the vari ous camps in C...
WESTRIDGE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
WESTRIDGE Things have been rather quiet at Westridge lately; the latest craze is wireless, Mr. E. Eastwood being a recent resident to instal a set. Cricket is in full swing. Our "B" Grade team have so far done well; the ''A'' team, however, haye not been so successful, and they failed to field a team on a recent Satur day. It is absurd to have the "A" Grade team languishing for want of good men when we have such a good "B" team. Why not fulfil the proper. functions of grade cricket by giving our best juniors a chance in "A" Grade? Perhaps the committee will realise its duty in this matter ere long. Stray dogs have been causing some trouble around Westridge lately. To-day I saw one run from under a culvert, and a passing horse took fright and capsized the sulky. It is up to the people who own these dogs to keep them chained up. The residents of this centre are wondering why the authorities don't close the school when the scarlet fever is prevalent, as several cases have gone to the h...
CAUSEWAY [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
CAUSEWAY We notice the growth in the gardens since thc warm weather, but on the whole, it has been very disheartening, a few warm days, a cold rain, a severe frost, and a few days' wind-a great wonder anything can grow. We are sorry to lose Mr. and Mrs. Jim Donnelian, one of the finest couples amongst us. People of this type represent a severe loss to any community they leave. They have left the Territory, with their new-born son, for Sydney. Judging by the number of children on the playground, it is a great success, and is thoroughly appreciated by the youngsters. The members of the orchestra had a lobster supper after a recent Saturday night, but the after-effects left much to be desired. The pictures still draw great crowds, and several very good programmes have recently been shown. Some of our roads are very much worn and the repairing gang is very much needed. Sorry Mr. Maxwell and family have had to leave the Causeway. Mr. Maxwell's voice in the bass section of the Philharmoni...
PRESENTATION TO MR. S. ANDERSON [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 November 1926
PRESENTATION TO MR. S. ANDERSON On Friday afternoon, l5th October, the staff of the accounts branch of the Commis- sion foregathered for the purpose of present- ing a very handsome inscribed rose-bowl to Mr. Anderson on the occasion of his mar riage.

Mr. Anderson expressed briefly and suit ably his thanks for the splendid present.
