Some artesian bores may flow forever GEOLOGIST REVIEWS SOILS AND WATERS OF WESTERN QUEENSLAND (.On Wednesday, April 6, Dr. F. WMtehouse, Associate Professor of Geo logy at the University ol Queensland, delivered a lecture in Charleville under the auspices of the Board of Adult Education. Sr. WMtehouse chose as the' title of his talk, "The Soils and Waters of Western Queensland," and as the Channel Country has recently been aerially surveyed under Dr. Whitehouse's supervision, the lecture should prove of interest to Western Star Headers. It is reprinted here in full.—Ed.]. QUEENSLAND is a very flat place, with our very highest mountain i not to very high, and most of the State plainland. To under stand the problems ot the plains, I will ask you to go back with me | into the geological past. At some time over 100 million years ago the central portion of what is now Queensland began ever so slowly to sag between the higher stable blocks to the east and to the west of it.

WHEN THE REPTILES WERE THE MASTERS OF THE EARTH As we have already said, Reptiles were the next class of back boned animals to follow the Amphibia. Many of the Reptiles gradually lost their limbs and have become very long and round and crawling until they took the shapes of snakes and serpents; others, such as lizards, retained their limbs. At one time, Reptiles were the Masters of the Earth. There was nothing to beat them. They grew to great sizes, and, if you go to some museums, yftu may see the remains of their bodies, some of them sixty feet long. Some of them, especially the smaller ones, grew great stretches of skin between their outstretched fingers-—a sort of web such as we find in the feet of many swimming birds, and so they were able to fly, more or less. Some of them were, perhaps, very fierce, and powerful, and they had terrible teeth. It must have been a very strange Earth in the age of Reptiles. If you think of % snake and then of a magpie, you would never guess that t...

They stood flat footed and seemed to be pleased to get rid of the ball, no matter wJiere they passed or "pelted" it. Main factor in Wattles defeat was the grand play of Cities ^half, Roddy Hoffman.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 26 April 1949

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR I Sir,— During tbo debate an the redistri bution of State Electorates, the Prem ier (Mr. Hanlon) was most adamant that the people of the West should have a fair deal and that he person ally intended to sec that they got it. The State Transport Minister (Mr. Duggan) was also most vehement in his support of Mr. Hanlon's views. Mr. Duggan is responsible for the effective administration of the State Transport Facilities Act, of which Sec tion 18 sets out very clearly, amongst Other things, that proper facilities should be provided for the travelling public. Thus we havo a bit of the Hanlon Government, the Premier and the Transport Minister all in agreement on the question of transport. Indeed, if the spoken and written words meant anything, the western people have no grounds whatever for complaint. Here, however, are two clear cut examples of how Messrs Hanlon and Duggan speak with their tongues in their cheek. Example (1): On Thursday, April 14, a. train of some s...
