LET'S THRASH IT OUT "Forum of Air" Suggested [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 19 December 1946

Boxers, Wrestlers and Trainers' Association. The suggested venue is the well-known turum of the Air." Since representations for the forma- tion of a Boxing Commission have been re-opened, it is significant that Stad- iums Ltd. have instituted x-rays for boxers, and on occasions, made additions to the remunerations of the contest- ants.

-? LIBERAL PARTY OF AUSTRALIA At a meeting of the Wollondilly State Electoral Conference of the Liberal Party in Picton on the 30 th November, Mr. Jeff Bate, M.L.A., was unopposed and unanimously endorsed as tn i Lib- eral candidate for Wollondilly at the forthcoming State Elections. The president, Mr. T. H. Kelly Jnr., ,congratulated Mr. Bate and pointed out ;that as Mr. Bate was unopposed for .selection it showed that the people of the electorate had complate confidence in Mr. Bate and were thoroughly satis- fied, with the manner iii which Mr. Bate was serving the needs of the people in the Wollondilly Electorate. The electorate, said Mr. Kelly, was more than fortunate in having a member who was prepared to forego any busi- ness opportunities in order to devote his full time to the carrying out of his i Parliamentary duties.

Starting, I with- drew the cork from the first bottle, pour- ed the contents down the sink, with the exception, of one glass, which I drank. I then drew the cork from the second.' bottle, and did likewise, with the ex- ception of one glass, which I drank. I extracted the cork from the third bottle, emptied the good old booze down bottle, which I devoured. I pulled the cork from the fourth (sink and poured the bottle down the glass, which I again drained.
