Despite a statement published last week that the Defence Department considered the proposal for a direct route to Bonegilla, via the bridge over the Murray, at the Water Works, and Ryan's Creek, as advocated in the 'Bannei%' to be of no strategical value, ffl would annear t.hat. ; the Department has still overlooked many important features that recommend the construction of the route. If the fact that the road would shorten the distance from the camp to Albury by seven miles, would allow direct access to the main Sydney road, to the aerodrome, the garri son guard, the Albury rifle range, and the showground camp, still makes it of no 'operational' or 'strategical' value, that, of course, is for the Defence Department to decide.

Perhaps the forerunner of Albury becoming an import ant inland meat killing centre, the killing of stock at the Albury abattoirs for the supply of meat to Bonegilla, was discussed at the meeting of Albury Council on Wednesday night, when new provisions were made to facilitate handling of carcases by restricting the use of the chillers to a period of one day. r With the loss of selling markets in Albury to other centres, it was pointed out that if it were shown that the Albury, abattoirs were capable of ? handling a very large quantity of meat, there would be a bigger inducement to have killing done here, and this would prove of great benefit to the town. On the recommendation of the abat: toil's committee, the following amend ments to the existing regulations were adopted ?
