WORK THE ACCELERATOR EVENLY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 March 1926

WORK THE ACCELEJATOR EVENLY. Quiet, progressive and steady op eration 'of the foot accelerator is one of the signs of the finished driver, whereas the novice who is making his "first steps" at the wheel betrays the fact by the wild darts and sudden halts which, his car makes, thanks to the way in which he punches his foot on to the accelerator pedal. But even when this first awkwardness has been overcome there will be found many who never, despite long experi ence in driving, think or worry a jot about the finer side of throttle work ing. Save in a. few obviously neces sary cases the throttle should never be opened suddenly and violently and although the rapidity with which it is opened must depend to some ex tent on the gradient which it is de sired to climb, bear in mind that it is still possible to effect the opening smoothly an'd progressively, for all that the movement may have to be a quick one. Let the "foot press firmly and steadily on the pedal and recollect that erratic dr...

MOTOR NOTES THE SERVICEABLE CLAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 March 1926

.MOTOR IITES THE SERVICEABLE CLAMP. Alight handy spare, with a variety of usefulness is any ordinary wood clamp suiih as that used by joiners and boat builders. This device takes up very little space in the tool box of the car and will,often prove a very great time-saver in effecting Lempor ary repairs. For instance, by its nieans a broken spring can fre quently be clamped together .so that it is possible to proceed without risk of further damaging, the mechanism. Tyre repairs are always firmer if the patch is dried under a steady pres sure, and by 3the use of the clamp this can conveniently be done. Other methods for making use of this fit ting will suggest themselves as neces sity arises,, and we have no hesitation in labelling such an addition .to the running kit as well worth while.

IS IT A MAIN ROAD? CANBERRA TO BRAIDWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 March 1926

IS IT A MAIN ROAD? CANBERRA TO BRAIDWOOD. A deputation of leading citizens of Braidwood interviewed the Prime Minister on Saturday and asked him to urge the Federal Government to reconstruct a direct road from Braid- wood to Canberra. It was pointed out that, as this was not a main road, the Main Road Board had declined to remake the road as portion of the State Govern- ment scheme. The deputation em- phasised that, as this was a direct road from Canberra, and as Braid- wood would be supplying timber and other necessities for the Federal capi- tal, it would be an advantage to the Federal capital to have this road re- made by the Federal Government. The Prime Minister said the ques- tion of road construction in Austra- lia had become too big for the shire councils, or even the State Govern- ments, and so the Federal. Govern- ment had adopted a national roads policy. That was a fair and rational policy, because, owing to the popu- larity of motor traffic, the question of good roads wa...

WOOL REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 March 1926

WOOL REPORT Pitt, Son & Badgery Ltd. report: The February series of sales in Syd- ney closed last week. Market condi- tions have ruled without quotable change throughout the auctions held during the past three weeks, and fairly full clearances of the various catalogues submitted have been ef- fected. American and Bradford orders have absorbed a big propor- tion of the supplies, while Japan and Germany have rendered consistent support to the market. France has been interested in the comparatively few lines of super quality that have been offering, and these lots have made relatively high figures. The reports from London regarding the top market are favourable though the business that is passing is not as extensive as it might be. Brisbane is conducting a sale of some 47,000 bales this week, and in the mean- time auctions are suspended in this centre. On 8th March sales will re- open in Sydney, and from that date until the 25th March a series of   sales will be he...
