CANBERRA—CANT BEER [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

CANBERRA-CANT BEER Of 267 men arrested for drunkenness dur ing the Xmas holidays, the ma jority had rail way tickets to Canberra in their possession. (Sydney newspaper item.) The navvies came down from their jobs in the scrub, and made a bee-line from the station to pub. A long year they'd sweated far out of the town, in spots where there's no chance of f keeping one down." The thirsts they'd developed they hastened to slack, and never a one had a drink but came back. * ' Fill 'em again" was the unceasing cry, and many a pub had its barrels pulled dry. Not since the day Kaiser Bill "turned it in" had Syd ney's citizens heard such a din; there's no thing like beer (or whisky perhaps), to rouse up the devil in these navvy chaps. So big Jimmy Mitchell, the Chief of thc Cops, decided to quieten these lovers of hops, and then like a deluge of rain from the heaven, the men in blue swooped and grabbed two-sixty-seven. " When . two-sixty-seven men, haggard and worn, appeared to answer the d...

FATHER CHRISTMAS AT CANBERRA A BUSY TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

FATHER CHRISTMAS AT CANBERRA A BUSY TIME. Father Christmas was an. exceptionally busy man at Canberra during tue; recent festive season, for there was not a district in the city area that he was not seen. ^dispensing Xmas cheer to the young folk. His mission of goodwell extended from Ainslie to Biverbourue Httirpne direction, and'from Westridge to Bus sell Hill ih another, and if, ever the genial Santa earned his usual..twelve months' respite, he must have doné sp in Canberra as a result of his arduous labours during Xmas 1926. The Social Service Committees and other organisations zn the various districts left no stone unturned to give the youngsters of Can berra a Christmas that they would long re member. Genial Mr. Bruce, of the Parks and Gardens, branch, saw to it that each centre was provided with an Xmas tree worthy of the occasion, and the manner in which these trees were heavily laden with toys of every description, spoke volumes for the generosity of local residents. ; There...

MOTOR NOTES THE CARE OF TYRES AND TUBES. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

MOTOR NOTES THE CARE OF TYRES AND TUBES. (Continued.) Of course it is always understood that cuts in tyres are to be avoided by leaving, horse shoes and glass bottles alone. One hears it said, "So-and-so is a good driver," and it may often be exactly the opposite. I would judge a "good" driver by his starting off use of brakes in stopping-and speed con sidered with care of tyres, etc.-care of tyres principally. Bunning over bottles and horse shoes can be avoided, and is by many drivers. Turning corners sharply, and letting the back part of the car skid round, is ruinous to any make of type. The tyre is built, especially the balloon tyre, scientifically, to take , up a cer tain kind of wearing strain in a certain way -if the wrong part of the road comes in con tact with the road through under-inflation, and bending over when skidding sideways, the wall of the type is cut or bruised, and every thing done in readiness for a good "blow out. ' ' The writer is a great believer in avoid in...

CANBERRA RACING CLUB FIRST MEETING ON FEBRUARY 12. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

CANBERRA RACING CLUB FIRST MEETING ON FEBRUARY 12. The many lovers of horse-racing in Can berra will hail with satisfaction the an nouncement that the newly reorganised Can berra Racing Club contemplates holding a meeting at the Acton Sports Ground on Saturday, February 12, It was certainly a wise move on the part of the club to reorganise under the old rules, as if this had not been done, it is quite pos sible that many months would have elapsed before a race meeting could have been held in Canberra. At a meeting held at Acton on December 20, the following officers and committee were appointed to carry out arrangements for the future functioning of the club:-Chairman, Mr. J. Arbuckle; secretary, Mr. J. Bryan; treasurer, Mr. J. M. Force. Committee: Messrs. Callaghan, G. Wilson, E. Bates, C. Edlington, R. Kiely, S. Griffiths, C. Griffith, F. Scott, E. Scott, J.

HOME NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 January 1927

HOME NOTES By "Mona." A few seasonable recipes for the holiday season are given below. The sweets are easily made and are most suitable for children's parties: COCOANUT MACAROONS are very easily made, and prove a great standby to the busy housewife, for, if kept in an airtight tin, they keep perfectly fresh for a week or ten days. Take the whites of two fresh eggs and beat with a knife on a shallow plate until they are stiff ; then add gradually 1 cup of sugar, beat- ing all the time until the mixture is quite stiff, and can be piled in a heap; then add one small cup of desiccated cocoanut, stir or beat into the mixture, place in small quantities on a buttered paper in a moderate oven until they are firm and just tinted. Allow them to cool on the paper before removing them. DROPPED SCONES make a delightful change for afternoon tea. Take 4 oz. of flour, ½ oz. sugar, ¼ teaspoon baking soda, ¼ tea- spoon cream of tartar, pinch of salt, ½ beaten egg, ¾ gill of milk. Mix into batter and ...

CRICKET. NORTHBOURNE AND QUEANBEYAN STILL LEADING. SOUTH EASTLAKE UNBEATEN IN "B" GRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1927

CRICKET. NORTHBOURNE AND QUEANBEYAN STILL LEADING. SOUTH EASTLAKE UNBEATEN IN "B" GRADE. As it will be seen from the League Tables of the Federal Territory Cricket Association appearing at the foot of these notes, North bourne retain their 2 points lead over Ainslie in the first division of the "A" grade com petition. There are three rounds of matches still to be played, consequently a keen light for honours in this division is likely to re sult between these old rivals. In the second division or the "A" grade competition, Queanbeyan holds an unbeaten record, and their right to contest the final of the "A" grade premiership with the Division 1 leaders is practically assured. To Capitol Hill goes the honor of being the first team to take a point from Quean beyan, chiefly through the instrumentality of K. Pickering, who phiyed a fine innings for 119. The "B" grade competition is likely to result in a close finish between South Eastlake, Northbourne, and White City. So far South Eastla...

TENNIS. N.S.W. Country Carnival, held at Rush cutter's Bay, Sydney, 11th to 24th January, 1927. CANBERRA No. 1-CHAMPIONS. Team: W. B. Freebody, (Capt.) M. Crowe. N. Ridlev. J. Ridley. Three men's teams and two ladies' teams were entered by the Canberra Tennis Associa tion, the total number of teams taking part in the Carnival being ninety-six. The No. 1 Team, after a close contest with Parkes in the first match, which it won by only four games, was not further troubled by any team, and in the final match against their old Triggs Bowl rivals, Binalong, they gained a decisive victory by five sets to three, two of the critical sets being taken to love. One cannot mention particularly any mem ber of the victorious team, as consistent tennis and good team work was displayed by all four, and their success was well deserved. Canberra No. 2 team, consisting of Messrs. Ayliffe, Carnall, Martin and Smith, won its respective Division, and was defeated in the knockout round in the re-play of a ...

BACHELORS' BUTTONS. DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF THE RESIDENTS OF THE BACHELORS' QUARTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1927

BACHELORS' BUTTONS. DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF THE RESIDENTS OF THE BACHELORS' QUARTERS. Since the arrival of the piano, the high tone of the quarters has been raised at least a semi-tone, and the general tunefulness of the place makes it a serious rival to the Philharmonic Society. Pompey's car is going again; if we had a garage (promised in 1868), Pompey would have more room in his bedroom. Jock Irving cannot sleep for the noise of the night traffic in Macquarie Street. Even the pigeons have left. It is suggested that lessons in piano play ing be given every night. We wonder why the worst players want to play the most? Have you seen Mac's new Norton? He tried to break the record from Melbourne, but only broke a small spring. We are very surprised, however, that Mac. should have attempted to break speed records on this occasion. We should have lingered on the way. ir For sale, cheap-Ukuleles, banjos, tin whistles, mouth organs, fiddles and musical instruments. ii Enquiries have be...
