-Publication Staffs Misses Clare KinsellaDot EnglishKathleen MoKayFlo Allsworth;+Good-dayfolks! With the editorial chair now hidden under a larger bulkit seems as though the departure of our indomitable Marie on the big adventure draws very close. Actuallyone member of her party (having fewer responsibilities and less cash) has already been some weeks on his way to Perth - the first leg of the journey to Western China, and the unclimbed mountains that are Marie'​s goal, but she does not leave us until the beginning of July. In the menatime (( [sic] )), she is very busy setting her house in order, and handing over one after another of her many responsibilities to various of her friends. Marie is a light-weight camper, but a heavy-weight worker, so, as her shoulders are gradually lightened of their burdens, she will probably begin to feel the exhilaration of the trip even before she sets out from Sydney.
  
-Messrs. John R. WoodBrian G. HarveyStanLumsden.+We certainly wish Marieand al1 her partythe very best of luck, and a "​dashfinesplendid"​ tripWe look forward to hearing of their adventures, and can assure them we who are left behind will all do our share in maintaining the best traditions of walking, so they can be sure of having a spiritual home as well as one of bricks and mortar awaiting their return.
  
-CONTENTS+The Search and Rescue Section of the Federation may even be ready to assist in that return.... "As if it would be needed!"​ Can't you hear Marie say it? Still, "Be Prepared"​ is the Boy Scouts'​ motto, and the S.& R. Section is inviting all walkers to keep the week-end 13th. and 14th. August next for a big practice search party. We should all have lots of fun, as well as adding considerably to our bushcraft, that week-end; at least, that was our experience on a similar stunt of the S.B.W. some years ago. Scotty Malcolm and the Rover Ramblers also learned a lot when they tested out the signals system for the S.& R. Section a few months ago, as did the search party that went into action at National Park on February 1st. Next August'​s practice should provide some good material for articles for this magazine, so we welcome the stunt from a literary as well as a walking point of view.

If in a town, one simply asks the truck drivers, or any likely cars, for a lift (please). If in the country, one signals them to stop. But away from the towns they don't always stop, for, as many have said to me - -
  
 "If we stop, we have nothing to gain and everything to lose, we don't know what your intentions will be." "If we stop, we have nothing to gain and everything to lose, we don't know what your intentions will be."

 It was for that reason, I think, I met so many men on the road on foot who couldn'​t get a lift, and none whom I met who had been fortunate had had as many as myself, despite the fact that I had the encumbrance of a bicycle. As far as I could understand, the more fact of my having a bicycle proved my bona fides, indicated that I was travelling and was not a highwayman. It was for that reason, I think, I met so many men on the road on foot who couldn'​t get a lift, and none whom I met who had been fortunate had had as many as myself, despite the fact that I had the encumbrance of a bicycle.

There we awaited the arrival of my pack, which was being carried for me by Jericho cricketers who were playing at Alpha. They duly arrived in a merry condition at 11:30 p m.

Some forty miles along the road the driver dropped me at a large waterhole on the Barcoo River (he branched off a few miles on). Early Wednesday I was about to leave when a car came along. It stopped for me and carried my pack on to Tambo, 30 miles! Shortly after 2 p.m. I left Tambo. Within a few minutes a utility truck came racing along. It stopped, and we received ​a lift of 130 miles to Charleville,​ arriving ​at 6:30 p.m. Between there and Yuelba we had several small lifts, ranging from 4 to 15 miles, as well as many more lifts for just my pack.

-"If you like to wait till 8 am. in the morning I'll give you a lift as far as Miles" (90 miles away).+"If you like to wait till 8 a.m. in the morning I'll give you a lift as far as Miles" (90 miles away).

At Emmett I was told that we were in the easiest town for jumping for miles along the line, so at Emmett I decided to jump. I made enquiries and learnt that there might be a train during the night, and that there would be one at 6:35 in the morning, so that night I slept near the station on the goods siding. All was ready, I only had to roll up my sleeping-bag.

I looked and saw a long line, with smoking engine complete, at the platform. A few seconds later I was rushing over the yard, pack upon my back, sleeping-bag under one arm, and bicycle propelled by the other. Stopping at an empty truck, I looked around. There were two guards checking trucks a few yards away on another line. I seemed to catch them just as they turned their backs upon me. Voices of others reached me from the platform. Up we scrambled, and lay flat on the bottom - no coal this time. Steps moved up and down the platform. Off we moved! But it was a false alarm. Back we came. We were shunting. It seemed that we shunted everywhere, dropping trucks there, taking trucks on here. At last I heard someone climbing aboard our truck, he uncoupled ​the locks, and raised his smiling face over the edge. He was most friendly and polite.

His early walking activities were entirely ​in the racing direction. Someone from the N.S.W. Walking Club picked him out from a number of his school mates as something out of the ordinary ​and suggested he should join the Club. He did so in 1921and in 1922 he proved the discernment of his nominator by winning the 20 miles championship. Since the he has won about 20 championships,​ both Club and State. At present he holds the State 32 to 50 miles track-walking,​ and the Australian record for 24 hours. He also held for some while the Australian 50 miles championship,​ but a Victorian subsequently made better time on the same test.
