Labour's Troubles BALLOT BOX SCANDAL [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 April 1925
Labor's Troubles BALLOT BOX SCANDAL That labor is likely to have more interencine strife on the eve of the elee tions seems pretty evident from a com munication which has reached Sydney from the Secretary of the Federal executive of the A.L P. It is notified that appeals for thL re opening of the ballot box inquiry have been received from Messrs. J. Bailey and Bramston, two of the expelled members, who ask that the Federal authorities should hold a further in quiry into the matters at issue, quite apart from the decision by Mr. Theo dore some months ago. Other matters upon which the Fed eral Executive has been asked to ad judicate involve alleged irregularities in the Senate ballot and the Eastern Suburbs ballot The appeal for the re-opening of the ballot box scandal comes from the A. W.U., but whether the Federal Exe cutive will grant a special investiga tien into the whole of the disputes will, to a large extent, depend upon the re ply sent by the State A.L.P.

Football [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 April 1925
FeothOll The first football match of the sea son took place on Sunday last when teams representing " Easts" and " City " met on the Sports Ground. Although very much short of con dition the players gave a good account of themselves and it was not until the last few minutes of the first half that "City " opened their score. They looked winners all the way and romped home by 22 points to 5. For the winners V. Marsh (2), Kearney, Crowe, Blundell and Torpy scored tries two of which V. Marsh converted. The losers' scorers were Bourke a try and Shumack a goal. Some new blood was tried out but owing to lack of condition one could not fairly judge the players on their initial performance. As usual Frank Blundell and "Snow" Marsh shone out. Shu mack's play was reminiscent of a sea son or so ago when he was clasqed as "the goods." Crowe showed out to advantage as a speed merchant. Apart from these it would not be wise to, name any others as each and every one worked hard, and succeeded in giv...

MOTOR NOTES BUYING COMMERCIAL TRANSPORT ESSENTIAL FACTORS WHICH MUST BE WEIGHED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 April 1925
MOTOR NOTES wYUIG COllilCIAL TRANS"IT ESSENTIAL FACTORS WHICH MUST BE WEIGHED. The purchase of a commercial ve hicle implies something deeper than the indiscriminate. choice of an at tractive vehicle. When purchasing a vehicle, the trader must take into account the conditions ruling in the territory in which it willbe used. A truck should' not be purchased because of a low first cost, or because. an exceptiona ally low petrol . consumption is claimed for it. These facts must be taken into consideration: The maxi mum load and class of goods which it is to carry, the kind of body which is to be fitted to the chassis, the amount of time during which the machine will be standing idle, the traec to be encountered on the daily journeys, the gradients and state of the roads, the facilities for repairs, and in the case of the steam waggon, the facilities for watering.
