EASTLAKE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

EASTLAKE Xmas has come and gone, and Eastlake, standing on the threshold of another year, surveys the future with hope. Metaphorically, it is still young enough to feel the thrill of hanging up its stocking, and to believe im plicitly in the goodwill of Santa Claus as per sonified by the Commission. Its Xmas gift this year was the promise of a public hall and a playground. The spirit of Xmas took complete posses sion of Eastlake on Friday, and was reflected in the bearing of its inhabitants. The adults were full of goodwill and happiness, while the children were full of ice-cream and sweets. One could not help thinking that if this Xmas spirit could be kept alive throughout the whole year, what a pleasant and happy world it would be. The Xmas tree provided by the residents for the children was a great success. Mr. and Mrs. Gorman were present, and Santa Claus, in, the person of Mr. Crapp, was intro duced to the children by Mr. Gorman in a particularly happy speech. The pleasure of t...

BOY SCOUTS TASMANIAN JAMBOREE. CANBERRA TO BE REPRESENTED. Supporters of the Boy Scouts will be glad to know that, for the first time in its short and somewhat chequered history, thc capital is to be represented by its own Boy Scouts at an interstate jamboree. The Causeway turned out with flags and great enthusiasm to see its contingent leave by car for Queanbeyan, and gave a chorus of lusty cheers as the lads left for their long trip to the island State. The little party, consisting of ' Assistant Scoutmaster. Hammond, Troop Leader Mal.

DISTRICT ACTIVITIES MOLONGLO [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

DISTRICT ACTIVITIES MOLONGLO The Women and Children 's Health Society, Molonglo branch, held their first dance in the local hall on Saturday, the 18th ult. Al though the attendance was not up to expecta tions, the outside sale of tickets and etceteras made the business a big success financially. Arbuckle's Orchestra supplied the music, and were in top form. Xmas passed over quietly, a great number of the populace having gone elsewhere for the holidays. There was no Xmas tree, owing to lack of funds; but judging by the complica tion of noises around the settlement, Santa Claus has left nothing undone in the way of providing amusement for the youngsters. Thc mess cricket club has a new set of "stumps." I guess E.B. collared the first outfit, as there are only a limited number of garbage tins, and no spares for this purpose. The horse paddock fence needs attention. It's no joke feeding stray stock on cabbages, etc., more so when the strays belong to some one else. A certain business ma...

AN APPEAL [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

AN APPEAL Hing out the old, ring in the new, Ring out the false, ring in the true. Ring out a slowly dying cause, And ancient forms of party strife. Ring out false pride in place and blood, The civic slander and the spite; Ring in the love of truth and light, Ring in the common love of good. -Tennyson. It seems fitting at this time of goodwill and hope, to bring the aims and aspirations of the Social Service Association a little more vividly before the people whose privilege it is to live, at this historic time, in Australia 's national home, and to remind ourselves of the peculiar responsibilities which ha^e been placed upon our shoulders/ as the initiators of the soeial and civic spirit which is going to make Canberra a city with a soul, or-an empty shell. As initiators, mucn aepenas upon our in sight and vision at this stage. The eyes of Australia and of the world are upon Canberra, and by virtue of the search light of publicity, which will be focussed upon us by all nations and ...

THE NEW YEAR'S CALL [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

THE NEW YEAR'S CALL Forth from the ancient haunt of Time, Deep hid and dark, and worlds afar, Time's latest born, fire-eyed! sublime! At the sun's signal leaps the bar, And, borne on scented winds of Night, Starts dauntless on his year-long flight. His trumpet to his lips he lifts, And sounds a challenging call, To rise and wrestle him for the gifts, His chariot holds for all. And the wond'ring world stays wide awake, To give him hail, and a glad handshake. Yet nothing he giveth: all must fight For his favours. The bright hours In his quiver bring bloom or blight As we use or misuse their shine and showers. Then forward, all, nor quit the quest, Till the New Year yieldeth up his best. Strive! though the red veins angrily swell, And nerves nigh snap with the strain, While the heart's quick hammer-beatings tell Of the blood-boil, the tears and the pain. Fight till Time yields the rich spoils he bears To the victor-and to him who DARES. -¿

XMAS DAY AT THE BACHELORS QUARTERS [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

XMAS DAY AT THE BACHE LORS QUARTERS The mere men of this masculine establish ment were left-as was only natural-to their own resources and devices on this festive occasion. With inherent initiative, however, au eifee tive committee was informally formed, which energetically assembled ways and means for the provision of a prolific feast, quite becom ingly 4'fit for the gods"-as some of the members assuredly imagined themselves to be. Nevertheless, a legitimate conviviality was the nett product arising from the combined ef forts of numerous willing hands and minds, which contributed lavishly to the requirements and pleasures of residents and visitors alike. The dining-room was decorated with aes thetic taste, for which the ladies of the staff aro greatly to be praised, while the dinner and supper were replete with everything that the most epicurean taste could desire. For these the ubiquitous Bert Bowes was re sponsible, while his matchless arrangements for the after-tea dance were a ...

RUSSELL HILL CHILDREN TRIP TO THE COTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

RUSSELL HILL CHILDREN TRIP TO THE COTTER. A very enjoyable outing waa spent on New Year's Day by the children of Bussell Hill. Under the auspices of the Christmas Day Com mittee a picnic was arranged to the Götter. The weather was ideal, and an early start was made, enabling our party to be first on the scene. After visiting the weir and admir ing the scenery, the Cotter was voted the show place of the Territory. Camp was pitched on a sandbar of the Murrumbidgee, and soon everybody was busy giving the good things internal storage. Then there was a rush to the river, where those who could swim plunged in, the others being content with paddling. One "or two of the party tried their hands at fishing, and one enthusiastic angler returned wet to the middle but minus a fish. His tale runs that he hooked a fish, which he is willing to swear weighed nearly a pound, and that his line broke, and in his excitement he went in after the fish' to try and catch it by hand. Still, there are some un...
