Horsetail Fern Extracts ? +. ? . Native Gold From Earth PROSPECTING TRENDS L'lauis may be grown in the f. inure to extract gold from the soil, thinks Invjghi L. Sawyer in ??.Mining and Metallurgy.'

Letter to the Editor Increased Pensions Sought DEPUTATION PROPOSED [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 2 March 1948

Letter to the Editor Increased Pensions Sought DEPUTATION PROPOSED Sir, — As the Minister for the Interior (Hon H. V. Johnson. M.H.R;) will shortly be visiting Geraldton. I think opportunity should be taken of his presence in the town for a deputation of invalid and old age pensioners to wait on him to urge an increase in the amount of the pensions received by them. In view of the recent increases in living costs I think it is fair to request that pensioners should receive no per cent, of all basic wage rises. We hear a good deal of grumbling about the high cost of living, but there has been no action on tlie part of pen sioners in these parts to support the efforts of the Australian Pensioners* I^eague for increased pensions. It would Ik» well to know the Minister's attitude on this matter. Any inter ested in such a deputation might con tact the writer through the Editor of the '(leraldton Guardian.' — Yours, etc., 'A PENSIONER.'

Mr. Hollway said that he believed all the Premiers were anxious for a show down with Mr. Chi Hey on uniform tax ation andtha inadequate reimburse ments made by the Commonwealth. 'It is no use attempting to postpone the day of reckoning any longer,' said Mr. Ilollway, 'and no more time should be lost in the Premiers getting together and formulating a plan to force Mr. !

'Aggressive Communism threatens all the freedom and all the security in the old world, and the new when it puts people anywhere in chains,' said .Sena tor VamJenlxn-g to-night. Opening the Congressional debate on the European recovery programme he attacked Communist expansionism in Europe. He urged the Sei—tw not to cut the £A1,G34,1CO,OOO proposed for the first year of the European Iteeovory Plan. He said : — 'Americans have every thing to gain and nothing .to lose by sending this hopeful enterprise full steam ahead rather than by arbitrarily slicing off what might be the difference between success and stillborn failure. The fate of Czechoslovakia. v.-liens every semblance of democracy has been gutted out by subversive conquest, underscores the solemn thesis of the European Recovery. Plan. The fate of brave little Finland may be added to this ominous score while we are debat ing an axiom.'
