(Published by Arrangement.) NATION'S JUDGMENT AFFRONTED [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 October 1925

(Published by Arrangement.) NATION'S JUDGMENT AFFRONTED The prevailing European impres sions about urohibition were streng thened by Dr. Nicholas Murray But ler, who in an interview with the London correspondent of the- New York "Times" declared that nation wide prohibition in America cannot be enforced. "The Liquor traffic flourishes on a scale of almost unexampled magni tude, untaxed and with immense profits," he declared, "although caried on secretly in violation of the law, ?'?n my judgment the evileffects of the policy. adopted by the United States on moral politics and public order- far outweigh the advantages. It has become plain to everyone that nation-wide prohibition cannot br enforced simply for the reason tha' it affronts the judgment as well a the mora plolitical principles of vas numbers of the population." 4

ENGINE CAPACITY OF RACERS REDUCED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 October 1925

ENGINE CAPACIT> (W R(ACER REDUCED. It has been decided by the French Auto Club that the maximum cylin der capacity permisisible in cars comn. peting in the* next Grand Prix of 1926 shall be 100 cubic centimetres. Thiss is in keeping with the anticipa . ted polcy of the great racing bodies and represents a diminution of 500 c.c. below the present capacity limit. The same ruling is also being en forced in America and it is thought that there will in consequence be quite a number of European entrants in the Indianapolis 500 miles race of 1926.

MOTOR NOTES BATTERY IGNITION FAILURES AND THEIR DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 October 1925

IOTOR. NOTES -4----- BATTERYL IGNITION FAILURES AND THEIR DISCOVERY. To-day we. are not concerned with the controversy which exists between the champions of battery ignition and those who favor the high-tension magneto type. Battery- ignition may possibly be deserving of the more favorable verdict on certain points " when its actual advantages are com pared with those' of the magneto, but such performance cannot be expec ted from it unless the motorist is capable of keeping it in good order 3 and remedying the common faults which from time to time are prone tco arise. Briefly stated, battery ignit ion consists of the mechanical inter- 1 ruption of the circuit in the primary . winding of an induction coil which thereby induces a high tention cur rent in the secondary winding, which . is distributed by the high tension dis tributor at the right time to the proper spark plugs. In order that the spark shall be "fat" and snappy two things are particularly essential, a firstly the gapi mu...

WEETANGERRA. (From our Correspondent.) The weather here is fine and the days warm. There is plentyaof grass and stock are in good condition. It is expected that the long talked of telephone for Weetangara will be connected to the local post office in the near future. This will be appreci ated by all concerned. Some local residents have already made appli cation to become subscribers. Mr. C. J. Bell has recently pur chased a Ford ton truck, which, it is hardly necessary to say, is doing good work. Weetangara is well represented with Ford products just at present and owners .to whom I have spoken, speak highly of his machine. We occasionally hear of people complaining of cruelty to our useful and harmless birds. This destruction of bird life appears to be caused in many cases, through the people con cerned being ignorant of the value of bird life. It is impossible to believe that any person would destroy a bird simply for the "sport." Wee tangara has set a good example, a small branch...

OUR JUGULAR VEIN. Written by Lt. Colonel M.F. Brux ner, D.S.O., Leader of the Country Party of N.S.W. There is one factor in our nation al activities, which, to country peo ple, is what the jugular vein is to the body, viz., transport. Without adequate and continuous rail and shipping facilities our products can not reach their best markets in good condition, nor can we assume prospective buyers of prompt and un broken supply. It is absolutely essential for country people particu larly to only vote for a Government which will see that our transport is kept going and which will back up those who stand by us loyally in times of danger. Have we taken proper notice of the concerted and systematic attack on our jugular vein by those ex tremists whom Labor leaders disas sociate themselves from, but v-hom they all the time aid and abet? First we had the strike in our own shipping which paralysed our trade and cost the primary producer thousands. Next, we have the strike amongst British Sea...

A MAGISTRATE INVESTIGATES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 October 1925

A .IAGISTRATE INVESTIGATES. -A few days ago we received a letter from Mr. A Edward, who was formerly Traffic Superintendent in New South Wales,- and who at pres ent-is.'abroad-on holiday. Writing from London he enclosed some inter esting. facts concerning the motor accidents which happen in Great Britain, and the steps being taken to minimise them. It is related that Mr. Cairns, one of the London Magis trates, lately made a tour by car for ninety miles through London *and its suburbs. As a result of these observations the magistrate came to the conclusion, that, although there were too maniy dases of reckless driving . pedestrians were grossly careless, and often by their stupid conduct caused accidents to traffic. He also passed specially adverse com ment on cyclists, and added that most of the delinquent car drivers whom he observed were youths bare ly out of their "teens."
