Exchange of Officials Commonwealth and South Africa JAPAN-EAST INDIES Senior Federal officers believe that the appointment of an Australian High Commissioner in Caada and the reciprocal ap pointment of a Canadian Commissioner in Australia may be followed shortly by a similar reciprocal arrangement between Australia and the Union of South Africa. The possibility of such appointments was hinted at when the decision to make the Canadian appointment was first announc ed.

Red Cross workers all over the country are working hard to provide winter clothing for these women and children who, driven from their own homes, have come to Rumania and Hungary in the bitter cold, hoping for shelter.

Most of our coastal districts have be come overrun with paspalum, and other grasses have been crowd ed out. ' Many as are the advantages at taching to this wonderful grasB, no intelligent farmer can claim that it is the 'all-in-all' for dairy cattle. There are many grasses which are higher in nutritive qualities, particu larly during the winter months; it fails to produce good palatable feed during dry times, and in good sea sons it is so vigofous in growth that very few grasses can hold their own with it. When heavy frosts aro experienc ed the paspalum is cut back, and as it makes practically no winter growth, the paddocks are short of feed until warm weather is again ex perienced, all other grasses in the majority o£ cases having been chok ed out. The price of milk and milk pro ducts , is generally high when the milk ilow is decreasi...
