The best value on this day's front page in 1962 came from an amusing little tale tucked at the bottom of the page. Here it is as printed:
"Owners of a Canberra car sales firm this week called the police and asked them to find the owner of a late model station sedan in their yard.
The firm claimed the car had been parked there for two weeks without their permission.
Police established that it was registered in the name of Mr. R. Kinnear, of Hamelin Crescent, Narrabundah.
Mr Kinnear agreed the car was registered in his name, but declined to move the car from the firm's yard.
He had sold the car to the firm two weeks ago and banked the cheque, he told police."
Meanwhile, striking picture of an eight-foot crucifix being hoisted into position dominated the page.
St Peter's Lutheran Memorial Church in Reid was the recipient of the crucifix carved by Mr John Pillig, of Yarralumla, a 78-year-old who had migrated to Australia from Germany in 1955.
The anatomical details of the work were described as "perfect" .
