Aviation Changes. IMPORTANCE TO COMMERCE. Wing -Commander S.J. Goble, who had just returned to Australia from a visit to England in connection with the development of aviation, says that the British authorities are paying the closest attention to what is being done in Australia in the same direction.

Longreach Leader FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 1922. OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 1922.   OURSELVES. lt is quite appropriate and fitting that the "Leader" makes its first appearance at the first week-end of the New Year, and       although the staff have been heavily taxed   consequent upon the alteration in size from   the old publication, "The News," we feel that our effort's will meet with the approv- al and approbation of Longreach and dis- trict residents, despite the few shortcom- ings consequent upon the hurried nature of the change. We do not by any means claim to have done our best—no man leaves room for improvement who makes such a claim—, for one of the fixed determina- of the Company is to gradually and continually improve the production. We feel sure that our weekly illustrations will become a popular feature, whilst the ad- dition of many other features, including district news and late sporting information, we are confident that "The Leader" will quickl...

Ireland. A NATION ONCE AGAIN. IMPRESSIONS OF ARCHBISHOP DUHIG SYDNEY, Thursday.     "The Free State Constitution is one of     the finest productions of modern times, and far from making the Irish people a different race the Constitution places them on a per- fect level not only with other countries       constituting the British Commonwealth of   Nations, but with England herself. Un-   der this Constitution Ireland cannot be     drawn into war with any country unless by the will ??? people. She has per- fect control of her own affairs and is in   reality a nation once again." This is the impression of Ireland gained by Arch-     bishop Duhig who reached Sydney to-day   on his way back to Queensland.
