% Wattm $ar -- tot $*itmial J Friday, February 25, 1949. ['PHIS week's Quest Editorial is written by the Superintendent of tlie Roma Centre of the Queensland Ambulance Transport Brigade, Mr. T. W. Teale. The history of the Brigade, he says, is a history of progress, made possible by the self-sacrifice of the founders of the service, and by a determination to maintain efficiency, to live up to the motto adopted in the beginning—"Beady Always." That the Soma Centre is playing its part in carrying on Brigade traditions is a fact known to almost every resident of the vast area covered by the centre.—Ed.] TO render First Aid, and, subsequently, to undertake the careful ' removal of the injured to home, doctor, hospital or otherwise as advised—to transport where directed, under doctor's orders, per sons suffering from any form of sickness or disease: these are the objects of the Brigade, as adopted 57 years ago, and remain un changed to-day.

Yet, two other young swimmers, Max Cherry and John Bchwenneson, wTlo had both gained places in their respective events, were not even mentioned. 1 had great respect for Roma's sport ing spirit, hut it seems that to get irny credit at all one must belong to the so called "social set."

DOLLAR BAR LIMITS BADLY NEEDED INFLUX OF NEW CARS TO AUSTRALIA (From Duniop Bobber Australia Limited) attempt to visualise exactly what 1949 holds for Australia's 200,000 potential buyers in need of new cars, tracks and util ities in respect to the availability of the type of vehicle suited for their requirements at a price they can afford to pay leaves one with the over-riding: conclusion that the outlook in respect of im ports of units from &eat Britain is exceptionally good, but not so favourable for those requiring vehicles made inand procurable from only dollar areas. Thanks to Great Britain's export drive, approximately 75 per cent, of her 1949 output of some 320,000 cars and 46 per cent, of her estimated production of 150,000 commercial vehicles are being allocated to overseas markets. Of the 309,000 units scheduled to be shipped overseas, Australia, If Bke wants them, can obtain 80,000 cers and chasses, 20,000 trucks and 11003 utilities. Unfortunately, the position a...

INJURED RINGBARKER WAS FERRIED OVER FLOODED CREEK [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 25 February 1949

INJURED RINGBARKER WAS FERRIED OVER FLOODED CREEK A 20-year-old ringbarker was ferried across the flooded Muckadilla Creek early on Tuesday night in a hazardous trip to reach an Ambulance after he had inflicted a severe wound to his leg when his axe slipped. He is Neville Seekington, who was working on Stratton Station, about 45 miles south of Roma. The accident took place about 11 a.m. on Tuesday morning, the axe striking straight down the leg baring it to the bone. The party taking him back to Strat- ton Station was held up until dark waiting to cross the Muckadilla Creek, and it was decided to make a ferry of petrol drums and float him across, to the other side. He was then taken to the home- stead. Because of the bad nature of the roads, however, after the recent heavy rains, the Roma Am- bulance was unable to leave that night. The trip was made early next morn- ing, however, station employees at the same time leaving to meet the car with the patient in a dray. The car met the d...

$]}£ SMmt jte -- dml Mortal Friday* March 4, 1949. Erosion is your fight [Back from a hurried plane trip to Dirranbandi last week, Dick Condon, Roma Stock and Station Agent, was aghast at the glimpse he received of the damage being done in the Maranoa by the dreaded enemy of soil erosion. In this week's Guest 'Editorial, Mr. Condon, forceful, energetic, the driving personality behind the move to form a local Progress Asociation, hits out hard to tell you what he saw, and what it means, and what he thinks should be done about it. As he says, the problem is a national one, but its solution lies in the efforts of the individual as does the solution of every problem in a democracy such as ours.—Ed.] Maranoa people are committing daily and yearly a crime of such magnitude and far reaching effect, with such eventual dis astrous results to our own well being, that were we brought before a panel of fair minded jurymen and tried, we would certainly be found guilty of practices as effective a...

For Women Only [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 4 March 1949

For Women Only f This week's Women's Corner concentrates on the laundry itself. Here are some handy tips for looking after your laundry equip* ment. Washing machines need your special care if they are to operate properly. After use, always take out the acti vator and clean thoroughly to re move shreds of lint from the drain. Loosen tlie ringer, and cover with a clean duster. Drain the pump hose, and wipe -enamel surrounds clean. With spinners, dry the perforated basket thoroughly and cover with a clean cloth. Spinners require no maintenance apart from very occasional greasing. To grease lift basket right out. Wooden pegs. Keep away from dust in covered box or bag. When they are new, bring pegs to the boil in cold water, rinse, and dry in the shade. This will double their life. Ironing sheets should be kept free from holes, as they cannot be patcehd. Put into your general wash each week. For pressing cloths after washing, fold and store in a bag attached to your ironing boad, fpr you...
