MOTOR NOTES Miraculous Escapes in Motoring THE PRESENCE OF MIND OF THE SKILLED DRIVER [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 30 April 1925

MOTOR NOTES -4-~-- Miraculous Escapes in Motoring. TIE PRESENCE OF MIND OF THE SKILLED DRIVER There is an old belief that sailors and those who have drunk well, 'but not too wisely, are taken care of by a special guardian angel. In these modern days we may well add mo torists to the two classes mentionend, for it is indeed little sort of mira culous that drivers and passengers so often emerge from the worst spills unscathed or with only minor in juries. It .would seem at first sight that there is no explanation for the many extraordinary escapes which occur, as well as for the severity of some of the mishaps, but although there is inevitably, a great element of chance in the results of any accident, the natural consequences of a spill from a motor cycle or, in amotor car do more or less follow certain rules. Speed is Not the Deciding Factor. To the layman,it: would seem, na turally enough, that' speed was the chief element in determining the serious or minor 'consequences of a misha...

Politics and Wealth. COLONEL BRUXNER ANSWERS MR. LANG. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 30 April 1925

Politics and Wealth. COLONEL BRUXNER ANSWERS MR. LANG. Colonel Bruxner interviewed by our Sydney representative stated that he had heard that Mr. Lang during his trip to the North, had condymned the Progressives because they were led by him who the Labour leader claimed was one of the wealthiest men in the State. " If Mr. Lang cares to consult my Rankers," said Colonel Rruxner, " he will find out, unfortunately, bow very wrong he is." That however, which is not uncommon for him. ' In any case," he continued, would this debar a man from faithfully serv ing his constituents ? Even a wealthy squatter with a stake in the country see ns preferable to some of the im ported propagandists that play the tune that Mr. Lang dances to." " In Oxley," I understand, " Mr. J. J. Fitzgerald is accompanied by a high official of the Labour Party whose sole stock-in-trade appears to be per sonal abuse, none of which is true, and beneath taking notice of.
