This will mark the first visit of a reigning mon arch to the Dominion, and the occasion will no doubt be readily seized by the people to give expression to their deep attachment to the Crown as repre sented by King George VI aud his gra cious queen. Whilst crowned heads in Europe have fallen one after another as sinister influences, often inspired and directed by outside powers, have undermined people's regard for royalty and have raised to take its place a grim travesty on democracy, the occu pants of the British Throne have enhauced the prestige of the unjuarch ial system aud at the same tiiue have earned a place, of abidi...

Petrol Racketeers Nation-wide Ring Smashed POLICE INVESTIGATIONS Sydney, March 13. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 13 March 1948

Petrol Racketeers ?♦ ? Nation-wide Ring Smashed POLICE INVESTIGATIONS Sydney, March 13. State and Federal detectives believe that they have smashed an Australia wide black market i-etrol ticket racket. Six months ago, they said, forged pet rol tickets could be obtained at the rate of 3d. a gallon in most Australian cities. In Sydney to-day former regu lar customers of the black marketers are offering up to 3/- for each ticket, but cannot find a seller. In recent months detectives of the Commonwealth Investigation Service co-operating with the State Criminal Investigation Branches, have waged a successful campaign against the rack eteers. In New South Wales alone, thirty-five men have been convicted on petrol ticket charges. When the racket was at its height the main operators netted thousands of pounds a week. The investigators have not yet been able to trace the actual forgers or locate their workshops, but they have upset the racket by sealing the distri bution channels.

The Geraldton Guardian SATURDAY, MARCH 13, 1948 STANDARDISING OUR RAILWAYS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 13 March 1948

She -&traibUn@uurbkm SATURDAY, MARCH 13, 194S STANDARDISING OUR RAILWAYS For many years our immensely long, straggling narrow gauge lightweight railway system has been the nightmare «;f successive West Australian Govern ments and railway commissioners, as bases piled up and efficiency steadily declined. The lightness of the rails and general construction precluded the much heavier loads and much higher speeds which characterise a first-class narrow-gauge system, such for instance as that of South Africa thus limiting usefulness. Inadequate expenditure gu maintenance of track, locomotives j und rolling stock during the war and post-war periods caused a continuous drift in efficiency. Sir Harold Ciapp several years ago recommended the conversion of the whole system to standard 4 feet SI inch gauge (with the exception of 795 miles which he thought should be pulled up), as part of the conversion scheme to which the Commonwealth Government and the Governments of New South Wales, ...
