Communist Commoners ? «. ? Members Serious Allegations INQUIRY TO BE HELD London, March 9. An allegation that twenty-nine mem bers of the House of Commons were secret supporters of the Communist Party is to be investigated by the Com mittee of Privileges. The allegation was made by the author (Col. Brogan) in a B.B.C. broadcast. Labour member Bowles read to the House of Commons the text of the 'Daily Mail' report of the broadcast in which Col. Brogan suggested that a secret session of Parliament would be useless, this because secret agents of a potential enemy would be. present. Brogan was quoted as telling a reporter: 'I know any defence infor mation would be given to the Russians. Secret supporters of the Communist Party are the danger,* not the open ones. I don't think Willie Gallacher would do it, but I understand there are twenty-nine of these secret supporters in the House.'

Royal Naval Strength ? ▲ ? ? ^ — . ? Criticism by Mr. Churchill 'A LYING -DECLARATION' . London, March 9. The Admiralty had never given Bri tain so little lighting value for so much money and so many Ministers were incapable of understanding Britain's problems.

Fleece Research Some Fundamental Factors IMPORTANCE OF SKIN [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 9 March 1948
? Fleece Research Some Fundamental Factors IMPORTANCE OF SKIN Fundamental research on the skin and fleece of the Merino is described in a bulletin, recently issued by the Coun cil for Scientific and Industrial Research. Efforts. to improve production of fine wool must be based on sound knowledge of the sheep and its major product — the fleece. The skin which produces the fleece is an essential organ of the body. There is still much to learn about its functions, particularly its part in enabling the sheep to adjust itself to the environment, as well as the variations which occur in the many strains aud breeds of sheep. To under stand a tissue, such as the wool fibre, or an organ such as the skin, we must study its development from embryonic stages to maturity. Prom such studies we can learn much about the way a breed or strain has evolved, and so obtain guidance in selective breeding for the development of improved tynes. The latest bulletin describes a study of the skin and fleece i...
