COST OF ROAD ACCIDENTS IS ENORMOUS Thousand Cots in Daily Use Actuaries have yet to complete the enormous economic loss caused to Australia by, all types of accidents, but it i.s accepted that road casualties alone cost the nation millions of ixmnds a year. Tn New South Wales road accidents, at tiie present rate cf occurrence, will involve an economic loss of more than a million pounds this year. Castiality accidents in the State, if they continue at the rate recorded in the last two months, will require liie continuous use of not less than one thousand hospital cots a day for :hc victims which, at the conservative --.s- timate of six shillings a day. will in volve an avoidable expenditure— for mc.st accidents can be avoided— uf about i;2(i0,000 a year.

RETURNED SOLDIERS AND PIG-RAISING Advice By a Veteran of World War I. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Daily Herald — 29 July 1946
RETURNED SOLDIERS AND PIG-RAISING Advice By a Veteran' of World War I. For returhed soldiers whose eyes turn to the land, and who have pig-raising in mind ' as their 'road to fortune,' there is salutary advice in a talk that was given in the A.B.C.'s Country Hour. The speaker was A. V. McBurney. of Baulkham Hills, N.S.W.. a digger of World War I., who learned his experi ence and lost his money in nis eany years with pigs, and only succeeded I when he had been through the mill and had learned to concentrate on es sentials. This practical man's advice may save many men from wasting their deferred pay. It is a 'queer thing that so many people think pig-raising is dead easy, just because pi-js are such prolific breeders. Actually, that is the main reason that it is not easy, and 1 doubt if there Is any other branch of stock raising in which so many people fail to make good. There are many reasons for these failures, and I want to help you chaps who have not had much experience, and who ...

PRICE OF PETROL [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Daily Herald — 29 July 1946
PRICK OK PETROL Dissatisfaction with the extent of the petrel price decrease of Id. a gal- I Ion is expressed by the N.R.M.A. and R.A.C.A. 'Too litti'e and too slow' is their description of the Government's move. Mr. H. T. Johnson, N.R.M.A. general secretary, said that a case had been made out by the affiliated motoring organisations for a reduction to 2/4 a gallon in the Australian capital cities, instead oi the 2 Si now operating. In comparable circumstances, the price of pe.rol in Australia 'excluding tax) was still higher than in New Zealand. He said his organisation would continue to press for further reductions, not only in respect of landed costs, but also the petrol tax. Mr. O. Zehntier, R.A.C.A. secretary, said it was gratifying that the Federal authorities were listening to the clamor ct organised motorists for cheaper pet rol. but their response was still be- , la led and unsatisfying. His body, in | association with the N.R.M.A. and in- l tevstate affiliates, was lightin...
