Interstate Travel SOME BARRIERS DOWN Delay In New South Wales Now that, the Motor Car (Third Party Insurance) Bill has been passed by the Victorian Parliament, many of the absurd restrictions on motorists desir ous of passing between Victoria and South Australia will be re moved. Similar conditions will apply between Victoria and New South Wales when the latter State passes its third party bill. These restrictions were never fa vored by the Chief Secretary, Mr. Bailey, nor by the Under Secretary, Mr. Chapman, but many obstacles were placed in the way of removal. Mr. Bailey eventually secured an agreement with the New South Wales and South Australian authorities to provide that on third party insurance laws being enacted, the following con cessions would operate: 1. Abolition of border passes' for private cars. 2. Motor traders' plates may be used up to 50 miles from the point of entry into neighbouring State without registration. 3. Private hire cars and taxis may travel up to 50 mi...

Modern T.B. Detecting The nation will save a large amount of money in payment of pensions for tuberculosis because of the careful examination which the Army Medi cal authorities are making of every soldier who has enlisted for overseas service.

Any member of the Second A.I.F. who has been found suffering from T.B. will be passed on to the State Health De partment for treatment. Technicians from the foremost hospitals in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide are employed. Not more than 20 men an hour could be exam ined under'the old process. The av erage under the new method is 150 an hour.

Correspondence (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 19 January 1940
Correspondence (To the Editor.) Sir,--Re cr: icism of my adminis tration of the Whittlesea Pound as reported in 'The Advertiser' at the end of last year regarding a shortage of 5/. In i.y payment to the coun cil, that a .gust body were most prompt in their demands when one takes into consideration the fact that the previous year I overpaid to the extent of 16/. Criticism of that fact was conspic uous by its absence. Regarding the 'other matters of importance' the council aesires to discuss with me, I am of the opinion that any discus sions with the Whittlesea Council would be wasted effort. On January 9 I tendered my resignation as pound-keeper, but at the personal re. quest of the secretary, I held it back till February's meeting to enable ar rangements t' be made for the ap pointment of someone else to carry on the duties. Yours etc., WALTER THOMAS. Yan Yean.
