ANORTHER PONTIAC RECORD [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926

ANORTHER PONTIAC RECORD Latest American advices give account of "a. record breaking dash by a Pontiac stock model coach, whereby a record for ¿98 iuil.es. of rough travelling between El Pasco and-Los Angeles was establish- ed. The average speed worked out at more than' 46. miles per hour, and, the i express tram was peaton by over t,wq, hours, whilst the previous best record ot; a touring car was reduced by 5 hours &0 minutes'. Coming on ton of its initial sales record, which has proven unique iii the motor history oÇ the States, the Pontiac .seems destined to establish itself as one ol' the most popular cars in the Aus- tralian market also, as General Motors are fully taxed to meet'the demand.

MIGRATION. Peopling Our Empty Spaces The Empire Parliamentary Delega- tion and representatives of the Com- monwealth Government recently dls cussed the migration question at length, in Melbourne. ' Senator Pearce stated that before t)ie war Australia received about 40,000 assisted nugi ants yearly; since then the number had fallon io 2.r>,000 per year. He said it was boliovpd that iinoinplo>meiit and the lack of land had .been responsible for this, but these weie fallacies.       Thorp was no reason, he sa'ld, w'hy the Northern Teifltory »hoiHcL-n<'ot carry sheep, as similar parti "of Queensland did» Experts estimated that the ter- ritory could easily carry ten million Rheep. Mr. W. Mackinder, an English M.P., said he had been told that an English migrant needed a capital of- ü 100, but how could Australia expect to get 6,000, 000 migrants " with that amount of; money each ?
