RADIO NEWS MISSING FRIENDS Broadcasting Inquiries. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926

RADIO NEWS MISSING FRIENDS Broadcasting Inquiries. Urgent inquiries for missing relations has become such a feature of the broadcasting stations of late, that the Police Department has arranged with the broadcasting stations only to broad- cast such inquiries as have first been verified by the local police. This fact should be widely known, as delays might otherwise occur. For in- stance, the Radio Broadcast Bureau re- cently received a request from Bombo by letter, to have broadcast the fact that an elderly woman was ill in hos- pital at Launceston," and calling upon the widely scattered members of her family to attend her bedside. The information had first to be sub- mitted by the police at Bombo, and, it was not until the following Tuesday that the Sydney Broadcasting Stations were free to make the required an- nouncement.

PNEUMATIC "MOTOR-CAR SUSPENSION. New Type of Springing. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926

PNEUMATIC "MOTOR-CAR SUSPENSION. New Type of Springing. A most interesting system of pneu- matic suspension to take the place of ordinary springs on motor-cars has been evolved and patented by Willam Beardmore and Co , Ltd., Glasgow. It has boon tested with great success over many thousands bf miles. Pneumatic suspension provides a way out of many difficulties connected with drdlnary springing. The chassis rides upon four pneu- matic cylinders coupled by piping to the storage bottle; eabh uf these cyl- inders consists of two casings of cir- cular section, telescoped together, the outer one bein« seeuiod to the car by trunnions, while the inner casing is ball-jointed to the axles. Pressure is sustained by a central reset voir .and system of piping, and a most ingenious valve gear on each of the four cylinders. There is a connec- tion for clutch and brake operation from the same reservoir.
