Sir George Fuller's Position LAND FOB TUBERCULOSIS VILLAGE, The deputation that waited on the Premier on February 18 was immedi ately impressed by Sir Geo. Fuller's intense sympathy with the movement for the relief of consumptives, especi ally in the early stages. While the Government cannot yet announce the setting apart of a definite area for the purposes of an 'Open-Air Village' the Premier's definite promise was, that he would at once order an investi gation by the proper officers, to deter mine the most suitable area to be used for such a colony. , The deputation was introduced by I)r. Itichard Arthur, M.L.A., who re ferred to the Fuller Government's ac tivities on behalf of better housing, especially in Sydney. Both. Dr. Ar thur and Sir Owen Cox, who followed him, . urged that the Government im press upon the public the importance of distinguishing between an institu tion like that at Waterfall where so many patients go in a hopeless condi tion — nnd nn open air village, such ...

Motoring Notes HINTS ON REPLACING GASKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 26 February 1925

Motoring Notes HINTS ON REPLACING GASKETS. | What to use on the gasket to make it water tight when replacing a cylin dei head after cleaning carboil would seem to be a matter ol' opinion, judg ing from the varied suggestions which are offered to the car owner who does liis own work. The question, liow e--. er, is really only one of common SMise. IE the car and the gasket are new, hard oil (grease) smeared over ? both sides of the gasket will make it as water-tight as necessary. If, how ever, the gasket happens to have been shellacked at some previous time, it is best'to buy a new gasket and use hard oil . That is the objection 'to shellac ; the gfjslcet is nearly always spoiled in trying to remove it after it is once shellacked. If the gasket has not been previously shellacked, and it is not in very good condition, shellac will make it last until the head is re moved again. If a new gasket, is need ed and none is available the old one can be made watertight by using white lead. This...

Why the Super-charger Increases Engine Efficiency. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 26 February 1925

Wliy tho Supcr-eharger Increases En gine Efficiency. In recent contest events overseas (he presence of a super-churging de vice of the cars of successful competi tors has often been remarked on by motoring critics. The subject is of two fold interest, firstly -.in its application to purely racing events, and secondly because'/certttin continental firms are now fitting super-charging devices to j their standard model cars as ordinary j . ^UiiipiiicuL. r'ui- tue benefit of those, . who are not fully conversant with tho meaning of the term, the apparatus in question may be summarised as fol lows.

Schoolboy Howlers [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 26 February 1925

Schoolboy Howlers At an examination held at one of the big schools recently one of the questions asked was to name six ani mals living in the Arctic regions. One boy could only think of three, but he ?r'ot his six by answering three Polar boars, two seals, and one reindeer. In our opinion this lad will do well. For resourcefulness in a tight corner we think his answer shows wonderful pro mise. Another question: What is a vacuum? brought forth the an swer: A large empty space where the Pope lives!

Woman's Sphere CHURCH AND PARLIAMENT. INTERESTING CONTROVERSY. An extraordinary controversy iy- ' volving the propriety of Mrs. .Tones, wife of the Vicar of All Saints' (,'hurch, St. ICilda, becoming a candi date for the Fa wkner seat in the House of Representatives, has just ended. Mrs. .Jones was selected by the Wo men's Citizen Movement with the idea that .she should be a non-Party candi date; but a meeting of the Vestry de cided that it would be infra dig c-- mix religion and polities, there being plenty of work within the church for the Vicar's wife. Mrs. Jones has, therefore, in defer ence to the wishes of the churchwar dens, retired from the contest. The president of the Women's Citi zen Movement hits written to Mrs. Jones, saying: 'We cannot, in any way, accept nor agree with those Who have caused your withdrawal. We feel that no section of the community lias a right to choose a career for any woman ; but we realise it will be hard to break down old traditions and narrow pre...
