At a meeting of the Albury branch of the Nationalist Association on Thursday evening, the Nationalist Organiser (Mr. J. Levin), said that the Returning Officer at Wagga had stated that out of the 1700 persons who apparently failed to vote at the recent referendum, 70 per cent, of the replies in answer to questions showed that there were duplications on the roll.

MOTOR CAR INVASION OVER 100 PEOPLE COME TO TOWN FIFTEEN DIFFERENT MAKES OR CARS Gundagai folk woke early on 'Sat- urday. There tore into town, a little before 5 a.m. a wee baby motor cax% making a row that was deafening, 'There you are — I came from Sydney on 8 gallons of petrol,' proudly said the di'iver. Around about 5 o'clock a number of small cars buzzed in all as cheeky as sparrows under an eagle's nest. They were the advance guai'd of a motor reliability test from Melbourne to Sydney, and back, promoted by the Sydney Bicycle and Mptor Club, and Gundagai was the second sta tion of call. LEiter on came the medium cars, and last in were the heavy class. At each control station the bonnets of the cars were sealed, ..and any break ing of .the seals meant a loss of points. On the run from Goulburn to ? Gundagai there were only four cax's out of the 29 taking part which did not call for the attention of the controls. There were five lady drivers in the test, and each car carried from...

THE MARKETING ACT [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 4 October 1928
THE MARKETING ACT Interest in this all-important de velopment is being keenly aroused by the many xxxeetings held in various dairying centres. Information not px-eviously available to px-oducers has | thus, been disseminated. As a consequence, the simplicity of ! the coxxstitution and objective of the Act are becoming better understood, with the result that the clarification of the atmosphere which sux-rounded its introduction is enabling producers to grasp the advantages it offers in the way of price fixation and the elimina tion of speculative pux-chasing of In terstate butters. With the exception of three cen ti-es, the swing-oVer in favoixr of the intx-oduction of the Act is general and even there producers are divided upon the official view-point submitted by the factox-y dix-ectox-s.
