I commenting on the efforts of the Albany chamber of Commerce to pre pare a Case for the proper develop ment of Albany s Harbour facilities or. L. I. Hill m.l.a., said last week that he was certain the chamber. Would receive whole hearted support from Many organisations in the great Southern districts in this work. Or. Hill referred to dredging which had been carried out at Albany Many years ago to indicate what could have been done towards making a Modem port Here. Sir George Buchanan said or. Hill recommended years ago that a scheme of progressive reclamation should be adopted at Albany following approximately the line of three fathom contour for a frontage of 2� Miles. It was estimated that this would have yielded a total of approximately 590 acres of reclaimed ground fronting deep water. The governments of the state had however preferred to dredge the Banjo and other portions of the Harbour carting the dredged material out into the sound and dumping it off Middleton Beach. The Cost had been Over �55,000, and about 3 million cubic Yards of material had been excavated. This covered the operations of the dredges governor from 1901 to 1904, and Premier from 1904 to 1905. Figures were not available for other dredges in later years. On the figures available however or. Hill said it would be seen that the Cost of dredging and dumping the spoil worked out at about 3fd. Per cubic Yard. It would have been very Little dearer to have run the dredged mat Erial through pipes to reclaim the area suggested by sir George Buch Anan and had that been done an area extending from the deep water jetty to the town jetty and 300 Yards wide could have been reclaimed. It did not need much imagination to Esti mate what such an area would have been Worth to Albany and the state now. It was a missed Opportunity and it demonstrated the Wisdom of the chamber of Commerce when it appointed a special committee to watch harbours affairs. Meteorological i -.

On the Date mentioned the Albany advertiser. Published monday and thursday at 1 . Monday july 17, 1939. Germany turns South. I some very interesting developments have been taking place in Europe lately although the concentration of interest on Danzig has tended to obscure their significance. These developments Centre mainly round the infiltration of German officers technicians and troops into Italy and Libya. Little is published about such move ments of course because neither Germany nor Italy wish such things to be known widely. The decision to expel All foreigners from the italian Tyrol no doubt has a bearing on the matter since the presence of tourists and others along the lines of communication makes a prolific source of leakages of information. It is not possible yet to say precisely what purpose lies behind the Transfer of German troops to Italy. It is reasonable to suppose however that it is not merely a manoeuvre for the purpose of training. Troop move ments on such a Large scale Are expensive and the Only conclusion that \ can be reached is that Germany is sending troops into italian territory because she believes that before very Long there will be a use for those troops. It is known that several Divi Sions of German troops including a motorised division have been Quad j tired in italian territory. One is known to be in Northern Italy close to the French Border while another is in Libya. It is believed that More German troops Are moving or will shortly move through the Brenner pass to bases in Italy and Libya. In addition to this it was recently revealed through an italian source that the italian air Force has been placed very largely under German control while German technical experts have been drafted freely into the ital Ian and Navy. There appear to be indications that Germany has for the time being at any rate deferred her intentions so far As a coup at Danzig is concerned. Danzig is a very Tough nut to crack because the poles Are not Only obviously determined to resist any at tempt to seize the City by Force but Are also in a position to give a considerable degree of effect to such de termination. Poland has a Large and Well equipped which would make a German invasion expensive. By re covering Possession of Danzig Hitler might make a strategic gain of some importance but the economic gain would be Small and his greatest gain would merely be one of prestige. Pre Stige is important but there Are big Ger prizes which he might acquire with less risk and less Effort. One of these is Roumania with its Oil and Grain both things which Germany needs urgently. Hitler could probably overcome romanian resistance without a great Deal of trouble but he would have to reckon on resistance from Britain and France As Well. It would be logical to expect that France and Britain would thrust through Northern itally As being the shortest route to give Aid to Roumania and the German general staff will doubt less try to stiffen the defences there As much As possible. The drafting of German motorised troops to Libya gives a clue to the possible plan of Campaign if a Wai does commence in Southern Europe. Libya abuts on Egypt but an attack from Libya against Egypt would be most difficult owing to the arid Nat ure of the intervening country including a stretch of 200 Miles which possesses no water supplies. Infantry of cavalry would be virtually useless in any operation across that waterless tract but motorised columns might get through and penetrate the de fences on the egyptian Side. If a fairly Strong Force could get a foot hold in event. Then it might hold or Long enough for supports to by. Brought through slowly permitting a drive across Egypt to the Suez canal thus cutting vital lines of ? communication so car a Britain and. J France were concerned and More in portent to the Axis Powers opening an artery to italian East Africa j although the evidence seems to Sug Gest that Hitler and Mussolini Are preparing the Way for operations in the Mediterranean area it is Likely that they May find the difficulties j there just As great As in Northern \ Europe. For a Southern Campaign to j be successful they must rely on keep ing Complete control of the Mediterranean sea. The unified control of j the air and naval forces of the Axis i Powers is logical enough As a first j step to such an object in order to concentrate the striking Force As much As possible. But it will be far from easy for Italy with German help either to take control of the Mediterranean or to maintain such control j it would be futile to deny that Italy j is potentially Strong in the Meriter Ranegan but it would also be foolish to deny her obvious weaknesses. In j the first place she does not dominate either of the entrances to the sea via Gibraltar or via Suez and it would be quite a major operation for her to secure control of either Gate Way. In the second place Italy is More truly encircled by the members of the peace front than is Germany and she would be particularly Vulner Able to attack by sea and air. Tur key Greece and Roumania on the East Egypt on the South and France on the West Are All in easy flying Dis Tance of important italian bases and Italy could be attacked from three quarters at once. A moderately successful naval blockade of the Mediterranean by Britain and France would rapidly complicate Italy s internal Economy and would be Likely to have an especially serious effect on her air Force and Navy both of which Are heavy Consumers of Oil products which Italy herself does not possess j while indications do suggest the j possibility of the Axis staging an and venture in Southern Europe the sue j Cess of such a coup would depend Al most completely on its being achieved j by a lightning War Germany s pet i theory of Conquest. But could a 1 lightning War succeed ? the evidence does not suggest that it could. Italy tried a lightning War in. Abyssinia i and had to fight for nearly a year against an unprepared fore. Franco essayed a lightning War against the Spanish government which was not prepared for War and went on to fight for Over two years drawing heavily on Italy and Germany before he won at All. Japan attempted a lightning War against China and no japanese is Able to foretell when the already two years old War is Likely to end or How it will end. A a Honing War to be successful pre supposes a stroke of such shattering Force that opposition will be crushed within a matter of Days or weeks. Experience has proved however that even the deadlines of modern weapons is not enough to overcome the spirit of resistance which is the really potent Force in waging War. Cranbrook notes Junior cycling Champion ship.
