"I believe no other group in Australia has been given any more valuable help and concessions at the hands of a Commonwealth Government than has the Ansett group," he said. By its recent takeover of MacRobertson-Miller Airlines in Western Australia, Ansett-ANA had gained control of seven private airlines in Australia, Senator McKenna continued. Ansett Transport Industries had also been granted the third commercial television licence in Melbourne.

Start Soon on Radar at Airport Construction of a building to house Tullamarine Jet-port's new 394,000 long-range radar unit will start soon, the Minister for Civil Aviation (Senator Paltridge) said yesterday. He expected the building would be ready for equipment installation near the end of this year.

Bill for an Extra Six Seats in Council, Four in Assembly A GOVERNMENT bill to create four more seats in the Legislative Assembly and -six more seats in the Legislative Council was introduced in the Assembly yesterday by the Chief Secretary (Mr. Rylah). with about At present there are 66 members ol the Assembly and 34 Council members representing 17 provinces. If the bill passes, an Independent electoral commission will be established to draw up the redistribution. Mr. Rylah Bald the State would be divided Into three separate areas metropolitan, intermediate and country tor the purpose ol the redistribution. Each area would have a different quota of voters for Assembly seats and Council provinces. The metropolitan area would have 32 Assembly arjoui 24,000 each voters, with ana Council provinces each with about 110,000 voters. Intermediate The intermediate area, on the fringe of the metropolitan area, would have 14 seats each with about 23,000 voters, and four pro vinces, each 80,000 voters. The country would have 24 seats and nine provinces. Eight of the seats would be based on the cities of Gee-long, Ballarat and Bendl- So and would have about 2,600 voters, and 16 seats would be in rural areas, each' with about 20,000 voters. The nine oountry provinces would each have a quota of about 66,000 voters. The commissioners the State Chief Electroral Offl-osr, the Surveyor - General and the Commonwealth Eleotoral Officer for Victoria would- have to base the redistribution plan on the number of voters living in each proposed electorate at May 31. The Chief Secretary would be required to submit their report to Parliament within 14 days of receiving it, or within 14 days of the next sitting of Parliament. The key to the bill's sue- Buy Fitzroy Slums A.B.C. is Told The A.B.C. should buy up some of the terrible Fitzroy slums instead of building a factory in an area reserved for open spaces, the Labor leader in the Legislative Council (Mr. Galbally), said last night. He was speaking on his Private Members Bill which seeks to reserve permanently recreational lands which have been reserved temporarily for at least five years. The bill also provides that land owned by sporting clubs cannot be compul- Premier Opens Appeal For St. Vincent's The Premier (Mr. Bolte) yesterday launched the St. Vincent's Hospital 1963 building appeal for ttZiiu.uuo and announced a State Government gift of 10,000. fit. Vincent's nlans to build Australia's first specially designed and equipped rehabilitation centre for patients in Studley Park Road, Kew. , Mr. Bolte said the appeal was one which should be supported by people throughout the State. The chairman of the building appeal (Mr. O. C. Molvneux) said that at the end of the year St. Vincent's wouia oe one oi two Hospitals connected with Melbourne University. The Mother Rectress of St. Vincent's (Mother Alphonse) said one of the aims of the rehabilitation centre would be to prepare patients to rejoin their families and communities as active members. The proposed centre would have a highly trained staff and modern equipment to assist patients who had undergone surgery or extensive hospital treatment. The "Herald" and "Sun" announced a gift of 4000 and Mr. John Wren donated 2500. sorily acquired except by special Act of Parliament. Mr. Galbally said because the A.B.C. was an instru-mentlity of the Government, it could plant its "factory" at Rippon Lea, destroying an area which had taken 100 years to develop. "Why didn't it go to Fitzroy and buy up some of those filthy slums and pull them down ?" he asked. "After all, it is only our money they are using." Mr. Galbally said a ministry for-recreation and sport should be set up to investl- ?ate adequately recreational acuities. Wait on Survey Ha aimed to an adtoum- ment of the debate on the bill until a survey of all reserves m vio- been ThA clovera In the Council (Mr. Chand ler) said the survey was under way, and should be completed within three months. Mr. Chandler said not enough thought had been given to the problem of adding to Victoria's recreational reserves. He would support strongly any move that would lead to an increase in parklands. cess or failure may be a provision that if one House accepts the redistribution proposed by the commission it will become law, regardless of whether the other House rejects it. If the Government approves the redistribution proposal it would be certain to pass In the Legislative Assembly and become law. On the other hand the combined Labor and Country parties have a majority of one in the Legislative Council and they are are almost certain to defeat the move to set up an electoral commission. Introducing the bill, Mr. Rylah said there had been a tremendous growth of population in Victoria over the past 60 years. In 1906 the State had a population of 1,226,000 and 99 members of Parliament in both Houses. Today the population was almost three million but there were only 100 members. Disparity Because of the heavy population movement since the last Assembly redistribution in 1955 there was a tremendously wide disparity in enrolments. The Melbourne electoral district had 14,400 voters and Mulgrave had 51,800. The boundaries of Legislative Council provinces had not been altered significantly for more than 25 years. The result was that Melbourne province today had 41,900 voters, compared with 240,000 in Southern province. The Government considered it essential that the unreasonable anomalies in voting strengths should be rectified without delay so that the 1964 elections for bothaHouses should be conducted on a fair and reasonable basis. Two for One Mr. Rylah said the 32 seats in the metropolitan area proposed in the bill coincided with the area of the 16 metropolitan Commonwealth electoral divisions as proposed in the recent Commonwealth redistribution. The proposed intermediate area would contain a combination of inner country and outer suburban areas in which the vast majority of the State's growth was taking place. . The quota of 20,000 voters for oountry rural electorates had been designed to reduce the average area of rural seats. . , The country parcy leaner (Sir Herbert Hyland) said in the Assembly that the bill was "completely loaded." Speaking on a motion to adjourn the bill until Tuesday week he said: "We want to find the niggers in the woodpile and there are a mighty lot of them." Films and Plays Together in 1964 'Melbourne will have a new type of theatre by the end of September, 1964. The theatre which will be built to accommodate 675 people, will be constructed In the basement of the 1 million car park on the Savoy site in Russell Street. It will open as a cinema but will have a stage the size of other Melbourne Metal Sliver Clue to Grazier's Death SYDNEY, Wednesday. A fragment of metal may be the key to solving the mysterious death of wealthy Willow Tree grazier, Mr. Frank Avard. 111. Vini4i, n,aa avVllimoH At iAlO UUUJ TTW ............... dawn today at Willow Tree Cemetery. An autopsy disclosed a tiny piece of metal, apparently nart of a bullet, in the dead man's head. The metal sliver will be sent to Byaney for examination by ballistics experts. Mr. Avara, 40, was me Snowy Works Defended by Minister CANBERRA, Wednesday. Proposed works near the summit of Mount Kosciusko were an integral part of the Snowy Mountains scheme, the Minister for National Development (Sir William Spooner) said in the Senate today. If the works were not carried out they would greatly reduce the efficiency of the scheme. The Snowy Mountains Authority was forthright in its view that it would carry out the works without detriment to native flora in the area. Sir William Spooner said the Australian Academy of Science had expressed the view that the budding of the Geehl acqueduct would not seriously affect natural flora in ine area. Objections to the construction work had been based only on the ground that it would reduce the soenlo nature of the area. owner of an 820-acre cattle and sheep station Runny-mede, about 12 miles south of Qulrindi. He died in Qulrindi hospital on January 14, seven days after he was found unconscious with a head wound on his property. Investigations went ahead to find out whether he had taken his own life or had been murdered. Not from Rifle Subsequent inquiries showed that the bullet which killed Mr. Avard had not been fired from a rifle found on the ground near his body. The rifle was resting on Mr. Avard'S right shoulder and there was a bullet wound in his head. It was believed that a bullet found nearby had passed through Mr. Avard'S head and rlcochetted into a tub. He died without regaining consciousness five days after he underwent an emergency operation at Qulrindi hospital. Queenscliff to Celebrate Its Centenary The borough of Queens-cliff will hold a series of celebrations to mark its centenary, from Friday, May 10 to Monday, May 13. . The celebrations will culminate with a centenary council meeting on the Monday, after the Minister for Local Government. (Mr. Porter) has unveiled a commemorative plaque. A back-to-school ceremony will be held on Monday morning and a procession in the afternoon, .(. theatres to allow live shows to be staged there. Control windows and positions for television cameras also will be built into the theatre to allow shows to be taped live for Melbourne television stations. The cameras will operate from the back and sides of the theatre to allow the audience an uninterrupted view of the show. Night Club If the drinking regulations are relaxed, it is anticipated that the theatre will become a night club with sit-down dining facilities. Entrance will be through a ground floor lounge oft Russell Street. Patrons will be able to park their cars in the seven-story car. park above the theatre and then travel direct to the foyer by lift. It is believed this will bs the first theatre of its type in Australia. Architects for the car park, with its six-story office block, and the theatre, will be Bogle Banfield and Associates Pty. Ltd. Council Fights Blackberries HASTINGS, Wednesday. The Hastings shire council would co-operate with the Lands department to rid the shire of blackberries. The council earlier had formed a special committee to consider the best measures to combat the pest.
