The railway runs through tne m. the highway is in good order, .1 and banking facilities are as id as one could wish for, and a lick one' is still to be had at the i nosieiry.

COULD BE BLOWN SKY-HIGH Lyndhurst Shire Chambers [Newspaper Article] — The Lyndhurst Shire Chronicle — 22 March 1944
COULD BE ? BLOWN I SKY-HIGH I Lyndhurst Shire Chamber® I. 1 I 1 J 1 ! Council will recollect that soi time ago I reported on the risk storing oils, etc. under the Cuun Chambers. I suggest that fre.'ii te ders be called for the erection of proper storage shed, and that eve effort should be made to get the i lease of necessary materials. 'If a fire should get into the exi: ing depot under the building. tl whole premises would probably blown to pieces.' Cr. Cook thought that some Council's staff could do the job. Cr.

A motion, sponsored by Crs 0,0 and Denton — 'that the erection of suitable shed to comply with the r quirements of the Liquid Fuel i^ar be left in the Engineer's hai-ds' was carried.
INFORMATION NECESSARY TO SECURE TYRES [Newspaper Article] — The Lyndhurst Shire Chronicle — 22 March 1944
INFORMATION NECESSARY TO ! SECURE TYRES rpHE N.R.M.A. says that a number of applications by essential users for the release of new motor vehicle tyres are 'oeing rejected by the auth orities because insufficient informa tion has been supplied. When ap peals are made and the required in formation is forwarded, the likeli hood of success is greatly increased. A vital fact to be considered in such applications is the age and condition | of the vehicle. The authorities are generally loth to make new tyres available to essential users for use on a vehicle which has little useful life remaining in it. Thousands of vehicles owned by primary producers are early models, pparticularly use ful in the country because of their high clearances, and no doubt still good for many thausands of miles of running. An assurance to that effect is necessary before the auth orities will release new tyres. 1 Printed and published by Ray mond James Neve for the pro prietors, R. J. Neve and Co., Adelaide Stree...

COUNCILS NOT COMPETENT TO HANDLE HOUSING SCHEME - MINISTER FOR LOCAL GOVT. REPLY TO LYNDHURST SHIRE DEPUTATION Housing is a vital question to most municipalities and shires. But the query of the moment is who should cope with the position, and are Local Governing bodies incapable of dealing with it? ? Apparently the Minister for Local Government and Housing (Mr. J. J. McGirr) has not much faith in coun cils and their ability to look after the scheme At a recent deputation attended by Lyndhurst Shire Council President (Cr. J. A. Innes) and Shire Clerk (Mr. G. Callinan), Mr. McGirr consid ered that a number of councils were incompetent to deal witl^ the proposal and, in his opinion, the State Housing Commission could well manage it. The Shire Clerk gave a full report on the deputation, at the March meet ing of Council. | The Clerk's report read: 'At the invitation of the Chairman j (Alderman Firth), I accompanied Cr. - Innes at a meeting of representatives , of the Local Government As...
