SHOULD CANBERRA BE DRY? PROHIBITION LEADER CRITICISED [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 July 1925

SHOULD CANBERRA .BE DRY? " PROHI BITION. LADER CRITICISED , Severe criticism was passed in Mel bourne on Monday by members of the Federal Public Works Committee on the director of the Victorian Anti Liquor League, when a letter from Mr. Finlayson was read before the com mittee, in which he protested against the recommendation made recently to the committee by Mr. J. S. Murdoch Commonwealth Architect to the effect that, to enable the hostels at Canberra to cater more cheaply for prospective residents, it might be advisable to allow liquor licenses to be granted. The chairman, Mr. Gregory, M.P., resented the criticism of a public ser vant who bad been called before the committee to give evidence, especially, he said, as Mr. Finlayson himself had previously been a member of the committee and knew how its business was conducted. Mr. Matthews,- M.P.: It is a most imp- rtinent letter and makes unfair insiauations against a public officer. It was decided to allow the chairman to reply to t...

TEMPORARY BUILDING FOR CANBERRA LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 July 1925

TEMPORARY BUILDING FOR CANBERRA LIBRARY. Evidence on a proposal to erect, at Canberra, a tempor- ary building costing £58,500 to house the library of the Fed- eral Parliament was taken by the Standing Committee of Public Works at Parliament House last week. Mr. J. S. Murdoch, Director General of Works at Canberra, said that the proposed building would be of brick. Half of it would be used as a library, and the other would be available as a secretariat. An alternative suggestion that a temporary building with concrete floors and iron sides should be erected for the li- brary met with strenuous oppo- sition from the committee. Members though it better to leave the library stored in Mel- bourne until a permanent building could be erected. Mr. Murdoch said it would take 18 months to complete plans for the permanent li- brary building, and another 18 months to erect the building — a total of three years. He considered, he said, that Parliament should not move to Canberra until January 26...

GENERAL NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 July 1925

GENERAL NEWS The unusual sight of a large. cor morant perched on the telegraph wires at the intersection of Vale and Sharp Streets, Cooma, on Saturday morning drew a small crowd of interested spectators. The reason of its presence can only be surmised, the most accept able theory advanced being that the bird, during its flight, may have sus: tained an injury which caused it to seek the nearest resting place. How ever a bullet from a small rifle directed by Mr. S Dykes brought the bird to the ground, and it being Hospital Saturday, the bonus to be collected on the head of the intruder- will be added to the collections of the day.-'"Mer cury."

LITTLE GIRL'S LEG BROKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 July 1925

LITTLE GIRL'S LEG BROKEN. During the Molonglo-Tharwa foot ball match on Sunday, a very regret table accident occurred when one of Mrs. Dunn's children, a little girl, six years old, ran from. behind. a motor car into a motor cycle ridden by J. Elrington. She was knocked down,- the back wheel passing over her right leg, breaking it just above the 'ankle. Sylints were improvised and the injured child was rushed to the hospital. Mrs. Dunn seems to be living under an unlucky star. She recently lost her husband and was left with ten children. We-ex tend our sympathies. to her. The' accident goes to show, more than ever, the necessity for playing grounds for children here, as there is a lot of traffic in and around Mo longlo. There are some 300 children living here, and surely they are de serving of a playground. ' I advocated this six months ago, but these little children must still mix up with the adults for their recreation, and are' thereby always in danger of getting hurt.

"SEIZED" BATTERY TERMINALS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

"SEIZED" BATTERY TERMINALS When the battery terminals, when of brass, have been neglected for any length of time the thread is liable to become sweated and corroded on to the nut. An attempt to wrench it free with the aid of heavy pliers not only burrs the terminal nut but may also twist off the thread. To avoid this, heat a poker and then hold the hot end against the metal of the terminal. This will cause it to ex pand and will facilitate removal. Be careful to clean and vaseline the ter minal before replacing it.

A DUAL PURPOSE BUMPER BAR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

A DUAL PURPOSE BUMPER BAR.a -An ingenious' contrivance which t has been devised by a prominent a member of the Royal Automobile Club of Australia will .make a disc e tinct appeal to country motorists. This gentleman has constructed a iear bumper bar from the two main leaves of a front and back spring. A bolt is passed through the centre I hole in the leaves which are also clipped together. Next two exten sions made from strip steel are bolted on to the rear of the chassis frame and drilled at the ends to the size of the standard spring shackle bolt. The bolts are then passed through the bushings at either end of the main leaf of the larger (rear) spring, thus attaching it firmly to the car. The result is a resilient and sturdy bumper bar which can be dis mantled in a few minutes when a spare front or back spring is needed in an emergency to replace a break age. As a rule it will be enough only to include the second leaf of each spring, for with these two spares it should always be p...

A NEW ROLLS ROYCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

A NEW ROLLS ROYCE. The Rolls Royce is in a unique position for it remains in a field re moved from trade jealousies and is universally regarded as the standard of mechanical perfection. For these. reasons more than passing interest attaches to the fact that this factory has now introduced another model which is not designed to supplant either of the two present ones but to supplement them. This model is known as the "New Phantom." In many ways it resembles the existing 40-50 h.p. chassis. It has a cubic capacity of 7668 c.c. and a peak speed of 2750 r.p.m. The engine is equipped with overhead valves and there are other modifications in de sign which suggest that this Rolls Royce will.be rather a sporting mem ber of that well-known line of cars. Motor lovers will be interested to have an opportunity of inspecting the shipments of these new cars when they arrive -in Australia.

THE SPEEDSTER OF NEXT YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

THE SPEEDSTER OF NEXT YEAR. It will indeed be interesting to see what sorts and sizes of cars the famous designers will turn out for the" great speed contests of next year. Gradualy the cubic capacity of racers has been reduced until to-day the limit allowed is generally not over 122 cubic inches. Extraordinary ad vances have been made in the design ing of racing bodies which now are streamlined with meticulous, care" so that vacuum effect is' practically eliminated. The (supercharged or forced induction system is "also win ning much greater popularity. 1924 and 1925 said the experts would be the years during which ex perience would show whether or not the supercharger would prove itselt a useful component or merely an in teresting experiment.. Events to date show that it has vindicated its users speed and its general adoption on claims that it is a definite help to most speed cars is expected. Against this, however, we have the views of some of the world's leading engin eers who ha...
