It was a typical enough front page of the era on this day in 1963, dominated by world news. But there was a nice little nugget on this day: the end of a search for two 15-year-olds who had "eloped" from Brisbane in a £20 car a few days earlier.
The young romantics had run away after the boy's parents forbade him seeing the girl. The young Romeo bought a cheap car and registered it in a friend's name. Meanwhile, his Juliet had some friends help her withdraw £40.
The couple were picked up by police at a boarding house all the way down in Newcastle. We don't know what came of their young romance.
Also on page one this day was the news of a proposal by the Chamber of Commerce for four new pedestrian crossing in Canberra.
The chamber wanted crossings on London Circuit, Petrie and Bunda Streets near the Monaro Mall and Franklin Street in Manuka.
"At times of peak hours, particularly on Fridays and Saturdays, the situation in the City business area is obviously an irritating one and it deserves early resolution," the National Capital Development Commission said in response.
