Such Cr. A. J. Steele. action In.the public good raises the status of Mayor ship to a plane far beyond parish politics. We have always' branded you as a forthright sort of a fellow, but your public announcement that you intend to be Policeman No. I so far as this menace -Is concerned' proven that even the good opinion we heldi of you, has been sadly lacking in true appreciation.

Out of Focus With a population of approximately one million people, the State of Queensland. is equal in size to Germany, France, Italy and Spain com bined!" Yet 'the population of these four European nations is approxi-. mately one hundred and seventy-six millions! We ask you to again read this statement, which is absolutely correct. Then consider that the population of a neighboring Pacific nation is one hundred million- and ponder a while.
