 On Eight-Hour Day the Black Dog Track was the scene of a tragedy and, although those concerned did not belong to any walking club and may not have been known to many of our members, we feel that all bushwalkers will extend their very sincere sympathy to Mr.Jack Downing and to the relatives of the late Mr. Fred. Salmon. On Eight-Hour Day the Black Dog Track was the scene of a tragedy and, although those concerned did not belong to any walking club and may not have been known to many of our members, we feel that all bushwalkers will extend their very sincere sympathy to Mr.Jack Downing and to the relatives of the late Mr. Fred.

 At its October meeting the N.S.W. Federation of Bush Walking Clubs received a request from the Federation of Victorian Walking Clubs for advice regarding taking school children from the poorer areas into the bush. It is hoped that the reply will enable Victorian children and walkers-in-charge to have as much fun and happiness as the Playground walks have brought this year to many Sydney children and the girls who took them walking. At its October meeting the N.S.W.

 Did you go to the Bushwalkers'​ Ball this year? Delegates were asked to "get expressions of opinion from their clubs" regarding the desirability of holding next year's ball on the Showboat again, or in a hall as previously, and as to whether Saturday night had proved satisfactory,​ or whether members would prefer a week-night. Next year's Ball is a long way off, but bookings have to be made about a year ahead. This year there was a record attendance (256) on the Showboat on Saturday, 12th October, and the table-decorating competition was NOT won by the River Canoe Club. Hearty congratulations to the Y.M.C.A. Ramblers on their well-deserved victory! Did you go to the Bushwalkers'​ Ball this year?

 There'​s a very pretty little beach just about half an hour's walk over the cliffs from Waihi beach. My friend Sister Armstrong (Poppee) and I cycle out there when her day off coincides with mine; we're going to do a bit of camping out down there now that the summer is coming. The place is absolutely unspoilt, and is somewhat like Burning Palms used to be in the good old primitive days. There are soft green grassy lawns rolling down to the seat the beach is of white sand (Most of the other beaches, including Waihi, are grey), and the wooded hills are green with tree ferns and pohutukawa trees (thats phonetically spelt). A lovely spot. There'​s a very pretty little beach just about half an hour's walk over the cliffs from Waihi beach.

 Our last day was spent in climbing White Dog Ridge and Clear Hill in a broiling sun, and thence to Katoomba, a destination which I thought we would never make, owing to my mate's indisposition. For my part it marked the end of a walk, which for ever-changing scenery and interest, has remained my most cherished trip. Our last day was spent in climbing White Dog Ridge and Clear Hill in a broiling sun, and thence to Katoomba, a destination which I thought we would never make, owing to my mate's indisposition.
