 As a rider to his report Myles added that he had heard from Frank Adams of the Rucsac Club, who was bitterly opposed to resumption in any for, that the shack owners had not been consulted, that they would fight to hold their tenancies, and implied that the Rucsac club was not committed by the statements of Federation delegates to the Minister for Lands. As a rider to his report Myles added that he had heard from Frank Adams of the Rucsac Club, who was bitterly opposed to resumption in any for, that the shack owners had not been consulted, that they would fight to hold their tenancies, and implied that the Rucsac club was not committed by the statements of Federation delegates to the Minister for Lands.

 Allan Hardie promptly gave his support. He was glad, he said, to see Marie Byles. and Myles Dunphy present at the one time, so that we may hear both sides of the case presented at the one meeting. This would "apply the acid bath to the nigger in the woodpile" He now revealed that National Fitness was Australia's secret weapon, devised as a democratic answer to the Youth Leagues of Hitler's Germany; this was our way of keeping the young people fit, of making our cannon fodder tough and resilient. More, National Fitness was a body with kindred ideals to Bushwalkers, and we should welcome this chance of cooperation with them. Allan Hardie promptly gave his support.

-Paddy Pallin was present and lent his voice to the cause. He was afraid, he told us, that the National Fitness Council had resolved against further consideration of Era, and so before we abandoned dealing with the Lands Department we should check wether money was available through the Minister for Education. If so, we should definitely co-operate with the National Fitness. If National Fitness were no longer interested, then we were best_advised, to stay with our Lands Department project, for the Recreational Areas  Committee would not support another Era resumption plan for quite a time. 
  
-Myles Dunphy answered with some doubt about the future of Era in the hands of National Fitness, and observed that the control of the area would be in the hands of that Council's Trustees. Bushwalkers would have little say in its management, and the policy of that management may change over a pariod of time. Ho opposed the motion strongly; we should not change our minds, but should persevere with the approach to the Minister for Lands.+Paddy Pallin was present and lent his voice to the cause.

 Herb Morris supported Myles, and was developing his argument along similar lines, when the gag was applied. The motion was put and lost. Herb Morris supported Myles, and was developing his argument along similar lines, when the gag was applied. The motion was put and lost.

-The judge, Mr. Eade, described this photograph as excellently turned out and technically faultless. The tonal quality was true without and the arrangement plain. There was a nice dark area in the front, while the mountains beyond and in the background gave a three dimensional effect. The white patch of snow in the middle foreground was a little too obvious and might have been lowered in tone. The interest of the photograph centred on the mountain at the back+The judge, Mr. Eade, described this photograph as excellently turned out and technically faultless.
