MOLONGLO SETTLEMENT AUSTRALIAN RULES [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

MOLONGLO SEITLEMENT AUSTRALIAN RULES (By J.H.T.) The match between the Federals and Acton teams was played on the Bland fordia ground on Saturday last in the presence of about 100 people. A great deal depended on this game, as a win for the Federals would make them practically minor premiers. A lot of confusion was caused by the new out of-bounds rule coming into fo.noo, and as neither club had played it before it had a tendency for a while to slow up the game. But after about 15 minutes play both teams played as if they had known the new rule all along As yet I would not like pass an opinion on the new rule, but I think it will brighten up the game a lot in the near future. The scores were: First quarter, Federals 1 goal 2 be hinds, 8 points. Acton 3 goals I be hind, 13 points. Second quarter, Federals 2 goals 3 behinds, 15 points. Acton 3 goals 1 behind, 19 points. Third quarter. Fedrals 5 goals, 6 behinds, 36 points. Acton 4 goals, [ behinds, 26 points. Final quarter, Federals 7 ...

The clerk read reports from the: Electrician covering the last .-two fortnightly periods and detailing the Work carried out, and a letter which stated that having read the report of last meeting of the Council, from which he was unavoidably absent owing to sickness he noticed com plaints concerning his work. Had he been present he would have explain ed in detail. It was unfair to make the charges in his absence and he took the opportunity of refuting them. In the case of absence of re ports at last two meetings, pressure of work prevented his tabling a re port on the first occasion and sick ness. on the other. Concerning employment of three extra men, these were engaged by the verbal consent of the Mayor; they were qualified electrical linesmen whom it was necessary to, employ, the work being both urgent and i...
