MOTOR NOTES MELBOURNE'S GREAT MOTOR EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 May 1926
MOTOR NOTES MELBOURNE'S GREAT a MOTOR EXHIBITION. c , 1 No little significance attaches to t the International Motor Show which t lately has been staged in Melbourne. As we have pointed out before in I these notes, such exhibitions consti tute something more important than I a glorified shop-window display, and to the man who takes even a lay- t man's interest in cars and accessories they are of surpassing interest. It t is claimed that this annual Melbourne Show is the largest held in the Com- 1 monwealth; but without debating I that controversial point one must admit that an inspection revealed I that almost every make of car and cycle marketed in Australia was to I be seen. Thus, every motorist and aspiring motorist who visited the Show had a unique opportunity of I making his own comparisons in re- 1 gard to intrinsic merits and prices. 1 One point which was very noticeable was the tendency towards what, for I want of a better name, may be de- I scribed as the "de luxe" finish. ...

WHAT ARE FAIR WOOL VALUES? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 May 1926
WHAT ARE FAIR WOOL * VALUES?' - -----~---- (From, Winchcombe, Carson's ~ Annual Review.) The lay man is apt to come to the conclusion that woolgrowing must be highly profitable because in 1913-14 greasy wool made an average price of 93d to 10d per lb., while to-day the figure is 16d to 17d. But the sheepmen's expenses have not stood stationary while his returns have risen. In every phase of his activity his costs have advranced. Rail freights on wool, by way of illustration, are 60 per cent, higher than before the war. It is fortunate for Australia that she is a producer of'fine wool. While prices for that cJass of staple do display a rise more or less in cor rect relation to the increase in ex penses, rates for coarser classes do not. Coarse crossbreds are at the most only 30 per cent. dearer than 12 years ago. Tops, 46's coarse crossbred, were quoted at 17d Ain Y Yorkshire in 1914 and have fre quently been sold at 22d this season -an advance of 29 per cent. It is evident, therefor...

RADIO EXHIBITION EDUCATING THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 May 1926
RADIO EXHIBITION I EDUCATING THE PUBLIC I Extraordinary interest iwas taken I in, the Radio and Electrical Exhibi tion held.in the, Sydney Town Hall throughout last week (MIay. 3 to 8) 4 and it may be taken as certain that l thousands of people who had not I realised the value of radio as an es sential art of the home have now I seen the use to which individual citi zen3 may put this great modern scientific development. It was interesting to note the num ber of persons who, after wandering round the stands, made such remarks as "I never knew before that it was possible to'have a radio set without an aerial." They were looking at the I latest portable sets which the radio trade have lately placed on the mar ket. Some of these sets are truly remarkable. They are packed in cases about the size of a typewriter, the lid of which contains an invisible aerial coiled round and round like a spider's web. The owner of the set can carry it about with him by hand or in a motor car 'and in about...
