Yass Centenary. From February 27 to March 5 Yass will celebrate the centenary of its discovery by Hamilton Hume by a week of carnival and sport. The annual show will be held in conjunction with the celebrations. An extensive and varied programme will be carried out, and success is assured.

On February 27 a wreath will be placed on the grave of Hamilton Hume as a tribute to the native born explorer, and special services will be held in all the churches. There will be many historical articles of interest on view, including Hamilton Hume's bank book and Mrs. Hume's footstool, and other exhibits over 70 years old.
