Jupp, of Dindiloa, has join-, ed the ranks of Fiat owners,' having taken delivery of a Model 503 The new Fiat Six introduced as Model 520 is to be known in Australia as Model 521C. The reason for this alteration in model number is that it is a special model for export only, the domestic model having left hand steer ing and a slightly smaller engine. Ar thur Anderson Limited, the Fiat agents, report having just landed their first shipment of chassis and are very pleas ed with the construction and finish of all parts.

TRUCK OVERTURNS THIRTEEN PERSONS INJURED CHILD'S NARROW ESCAPE FROM SUFFOCATION Sydney, January 24. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 25 January 1929

TRUCK OVERTURNS THIRTEEN PERSONS IN JURED CHILD'S NARROW ESCAPE FROM SUFFOCATION Sydney, January 24. Thirteen persons riding on a motor near Singleton, to-day, were injured, when the truck overturned while pass ing another truck. The oecupants were mostly women and children. The truck carried a quantity of bran and chaff. and this probably saved some of the occupants from more serious injury. The women were frantic, and with the children crying the scene was pa thetic. Mrs. Puxty, who had her head severely cut, seized two of her children, and was calling for a third, who was eventually found beneath the truck among the chaff. The child was just rescued in time to save it from suffoca tion. Alexandre Ughetto, aged 18, and -w scph Vilowski, aged 10, have confessed to having massacred an entire family of five persons, consisting of the fa ther, mother, their two children, an-7 a farm hand, at a village near Mar seillcs.
