(Published by Arrangement.) A HOPELESS DELUSION. Three of the soundest publications in British journalism give their opinion on Prohibition thus:- "The Outlook" (London): "When a large section of the people even if- it is a minority,, sees no wrong in breaking a given law, it cannot -be enforced,. and it merely leads the- authorities into a hopeless impasse. ? That is what has happened in America, and would-happen here.!' "Saturday Review" (London) "Logic, ]proportion, huinour, and ac cufracy seem, immediately to .forsake everyone who espouses the barren cause of.Prohibition."

In "Reynold's Illustrated: News" he says: "Prohibition has steeped the Fed eral and State public services of America in corruption. -"There is scarcely any, department that is unaffected. Even the navy has had thrust upon it the work of dealing with the rum runners. "Our agents directly engaged in enforcing prohibition are frequently involved in scandals that do not en hance the good name oof America. Nor are the police and law officer: immune from temptation. "It has been claimed that prohi bition has emptied the jails. That may be true, but it has filled our hospitals with people who are vic tims of the vile, .poisonous stuff pur veyed in spite of the law." Simultaneously, the following edi torial attack on Prohibition appear ed in the Fort Wayne (U.S.A.

VALVE PITTING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 28 January 1926
VALVE PITTING. Occasionally one comes across an owner who complains that the ex haust valves of his car are an "in fernal nuisance" and that' they rapid ly become pitted and need grinding in almost every thousand miles: This generally is not the fault oo0 the valves at all, but may arise either from a wrong mixture or bad valve adjustment. The valves should al ways have their full lift so as to give the exhaust gases a clear outlet and the mixture should be set at a hap py mean, between richness and lean ness. On, very old cars the lift ot the valves may become diminished because of wear on the cars them selves.

TECHNICAL POINTS OF THE MOTOR SHOW [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 28 January 1926
TECHNICAL: POINTS- OF THE MOTOR SHOW Whilst it is not within our pro vince in these notes to speak of the publicity and commercial value of the .Motor Show which ccacluded on Anniversary Day there are other as pects of the exhibition which are peculiarly interesting to all car own ers. The advance made, not only in the actual finish in body work but also in the incidental items of equip 'ment was one of the most remark able points that the critic noticed in connection with the many well known types of chassis. " For instance, it would seem that the days of unad justable seats are numbered, for more and more bodies are being de signed in which provision is made for adjusting the tilt of the back of the driver's seat and frequently too this seat may be also moved back wards and forwards so that drive's of different heights can move the seat to any position, so as to be able to secure the freest and most com fortable control over the' driving pedals. Then again there were num bers of c...

Colins) repeatedly pointed out to holders of old 41% War Loal bonds that they were losing an extr:a 1% interest by delaying their con version' applications, but an ever more striking example of the casual ness of the average .Australian is now manifesting itself.

This means that all those holders who have not bothered about cashing their bonds are losin": between them a sum of over apprbxi. mately £1,000 per week in interest. A new Commonwealth L...
