German the foreign policy of or Konrad Adenauer the 77-year-old Chancellor of the German Federal Republic went into the Crucible of a general election yesterday. The election was for a new bundesrat the lower House of the West German Federal parliament. Or. Adenauer has been Chancellor since 1949. Hia government a coalition of the Christian democrats his own part with two Small right Wing parties has drawn West Germany very close to the Atlantic Powers. It accepted the european defence treaty with its plan for integrating a German army with the defence forces of her Western neigh Bours. This has been one of the big issues of the election. The social democrats the second largest party in the old bundesrat has attacked or. Aden Auer policy with the argument that it would destroy All Hope of German reunion by making impossible Russia acceptance of a peace treaty rejoining East Germany and West Ger Many under one freely elected government. It an argument that has had much backing from Moscow and from the East German communist government All through the elec Tion Campaign. It May have also made some Appeal to those germans who want besides re Union the resuscitation of a Strong Germany Able to bar gain with both the. West and the East. Though the interest of the Western world focussed on the Fate of or. Adenauer and his foreign policy the 33 Mil lion germans who were entitled to vote yesterday would have been swayed by Many local sues. No fewer than sixty parties appealed for their votes. Not More than six of them Are Likely to have representatives in the new bund i sat. The social democrats Are divided from the Christian democrats on Many questions of Domestic policy. They advocate nationalisation of mining and the steel Industry. The communist party itself of Little significance in West Germany. It polled less than six per cent of the votes cast in the 1949 Federal election and has lost ground since. Mos cow has not counted much on it. Russia would be Well Satis fied if the social democratic party were returned Strong enough to bring about the downfall of or. Adenauer. Events however May prove that russian backing ? for the social democratic opposition has strengthened rather than weakened the Adenauer government and that most Ger mans saw the communist Hook in the bait of reunion. It the Hook that holds East Germany and torturing the lives of its Twenty million people.

A vital fact that emerges from to Day world Trade situation that Australia material advancement and the Well being of her people rest mainly on the future of Wool an International commodity. And All the prospects for the future Point to a continuation of the pre sent Trade Confidence in Wool and the Public esteem in which it ? held throughout the world. Australia Wool exports Are More widely spread with even greater future expansion Likely than any other of her agricultural products. Many consumer goods that Australia exports can be produced More economically in other countries so that markets for them Are inevitably restricted. But for Wool the world markets Are wide open and the demand keen. And the auction system of Sale assures a highly competitive demand and Price. Last season flow of Wool from producer to consumer was particularly smooth and orderly and manufacturers and merchants stocks of raw and processed Wool and finished Woollen goods Are still Well below the pre War Normal an even flow of Wool from Australia throughout the world in the immediate ? future seems assured. Good demand. l i i m a from the i use of Wool from the end 1 of world War ii up to the present reflects the i. Healthy state of demand.

In spite of forebodings in Many quarters the Argentine accumulation offered last season was absorbed without any serious effect on Market prices. The comparative inactivity of the United states in last season Market due to the anticipation of peace in Korea causing tight and Light inventory maintenance and the general confusion connected with the Market ing of synthetics had Little or no effect. The Outlook for immedi ate future american com petition appears brighter greater use ii Hil i i i i i ? i r l Cince the end of a the Wor there has been an annual in creased consumption of Wool except in 1951, when the Check was caused by the extremely High Price of Wool. soon the Price fell there was a rapid recovery and adjustment and there has been no setback since. Market prices for Wool Are now about half Tho Peak prices of the 1950-51 Boom season and All Indi cations Are that they will remain steady. I believe that the Confidence Felt in Wool through out the world rooted in the Fibre itself because of its uniquely balanced properties Wool remains unrivalled among its competitors. The More men try to imitate Wool the More valued become its outstand ing characteristics. Synthetic Fibre producers aggressively claim that they can produce fibres for every purpose but no syn thetic products can approach the amazing versatility of the Wool family of fibres in their properties their Quality and their variety of purpose. Blended Iii i i i i i i i i following the failure of 100 per cent synthetic fabrics to usurp Wool place in Public favour they arc now being blended in Many forms with Wool. They Are being promoted almost entirely upon their resemblance to pure Wool Lens and worsted. Wool blends or mixtures a Ith other fibres Are Noth nth new Wool has been nixed with its own re worked Fibre Cotton Linen and silk for centuries. In most cases the Basic Pur Oose has been to reduce Price and thus make Avail Able the diluted qualities if Wool in clothing at lower Price ranges. When Rayon was introduced it was prophesied that it would not be Many years before Wool was Only a blending Fibre. To Day no More Rayon used in blonds with Wool than Dur ing the 1930 a although More Rayon used alone because like the new synthetics it More competitive with other fibres than with Wool. Like Rayon the new syn thetic fibres Are again at tempting to relegate Wool to the role of a blending Fibre. But the new blends do not represent any new types of textiles in construction pattern drape handle or Colour. Actually their real test lies not in their appearance when new but in their condition after six months or More Wear. Experimental Iuli i Iii film Liim i ii the new syn i tactics Are still in their experimental stages and Wool being blended with them in in creasing amounts to compensate for missing characteristics of Quality and to overcome their in Herent defects. One thing that the new Man made fibres Are doing they Are introduced into the Market to make the Public increasingly aware of the Quality the Worth and the Many other Virtues of Wool that previously had been taken for granted but even so Wool takes serious opposition from synthetics for the present liabilities of these fabrics and they add up to a great Many Are regarded by their producers and distributors Only minor momentary deficiencies that can be corrected. The International Wool secretariat which operates throughout the world and the Wool Bureau whose operations Are confined to North America Are unique primary producers organi salons controlled of Dominion and american Wool growers that Are giving a Lead in showing what can be achieved with Commonwealth and International co operation. In association with scientists fashion designers Wanoi Esaies and retailers throughout he world and with the support of the Wool producers themselves they arc working in the interests of Wool in a practical Way. Evade history i i a i. In l a l ill primary producers Wool growers made history when they decided not to sit Back and leave the promotion of their commodity to others. In this age of fast communication Between the Peoples of the world the need for keeping the con Sumer supplied with Reli Able information has be come increasingly essential to the Well being of every body associated with the Wool Industry and every australian at least in directly associated with it to such a great extent does the Prosperity of our coun try indeed the common wealth depend on Wool. The world demand for Woollen goods depends largely on real income after taxation and distribution of income. National incomes have continued to increase and there no sign of a change in this trend. A reversal of trading activities in the United states would inevitably Bunp about a fall in the ? demand for Wool along with other production / goods. In some quarters this i feared a possible result in of the end of the War i Korea and the slackening i of International tension. / however it by no Means j certain that this would bring about a general reduction in capital expend i Ture at least for Llin i a i Liili i Lili i Ilij other Strong influences in the / world to Day seem Likely to to prevent such a develop ?

Three Young men almost unknown to the Public Are mainly responsible for Britain new secret weapon the fantastic 2000-mile-an-hour anti aircraft rocket which Hunts Down its target relentlessly a blood no Piui. They Are Arnold Alex Ander Hall 38-year-old director of the famed Royal air Craft establishment at Farn Borough Hants or. Thomas Hughes also 38, sportsmen thus ast chief of the government rocket propulsion station at Westcott Bucks and Morien Morgan 40year old head of the guided weapons department at Par Borough. leaders of big teams of scientists and technicians these three Young elizabethans Are responsible for spending millions of the tax payers Money. The recent announcement by Britain Supply minister or. Sandys about the new missile a statement severely restrained because of Security restrictions gave Only a slight hint of their achieve ments in developing weapons to defend Britain against Tho threat of atomic bombard ment. Liverpool born Arnold Hall the sir William Penney of the rocket world. Like Tho Brilliant atom bomb designer he could command far More than �3150 a year he earns to Day if he emigrated to America. Like Penney he an ideas Man Well an adminis Trator. He passes on his brainwaves to his top assist ants the welshmen Hughes and Morgan. Hughes since his Days a chemistry Don at Cambridge has made himself the coun try leading expert on the special fuels which enable rockets to reach speeds of 2000 Miles an hour and beyond. Three tasks Morgan team has three tasks to Iii vent the electronic brain of the missile which enables it to seek out enemy planes no matter How they manoeuvre. To design the fuselage and wings so that the missile can withstand the enormous stresses of sudden twists at High speeds. To fit it with an explosive charge which will automatically detonate when the rocket gets within killing Range of a bomber. Ideas set in motion by the three rocketeer finally dovetail in the finished mis Sile which tested Over the sea at Aberporth Cardigan Shire and eventually on the huge �50,000,000 rocket Range at Woomera Australia. The Success of Britain 2000-Milc-an-hour guided rocket depended on its electronic brain that what keeps it on target no matter How a bomber Dodges. And that development. Was one big reason for rationing the output of television sets. For years the British to radio Industry Lias pooled brains and equipment to make the electronic brain rut there will be.

This All the More remark Able when one considers that this Council has so often repeated the old Parrot cry shortage of funds when requested to perform work of an urgent nature. Focus Cairns. The Call to prayer the Call to family prayer touches the very Core of Home life. It of vital can be no substitute for prayer an enriching and purifying influence in the lift of the Home and nation. It affords a Strong safeguard against aggressive secularism and attitude of mind which would despoil the High ideals and Sanctity of the Home. Our deepest need in the Home and in the nation a reborn living Faith in spiritual values. Two essential affirmations flow from the father Hood of god the infinite value of the individual Man and the Unity of the human family. There a growing danger of Man becoming absorbed in an absolute state. Family prayer a bulwark against this Subtle danger. Prayer which seeks to know the mind and act in the spirit of Christ transcends the Dif Ference of the Mode of approach to him and assured of his divine Blessing. that realised those who believe in prayer would earnestly Pray that family prayer May be come a permanent act of de Votion throughout this and other lands.

In Brisbane for the Baptist triennial Assembly or. Holly in the City congregational Church yesterday said the common need of Chris Tian and non Christian to Day the need for a Clear Conception of truth and the experience of an abiding Unity. Apart from these we can expect nothing but confusion in National and International relationships. If the 1000 million christians throughout the world could be seized with the be Lief that they so often declare that Christ alone can Supply these need then we could face the future with the Assurance that peace possible and a new moral and social order could be achieved. Ryphe bankruptcy of our time impresses upon our futility and should cause men to look away from the achievements which they Hope to bring about by Theli own Powers alone and turn to god. We must Realise that it god world and that it must be run according to his Laws and purposes. Nothing less than that will do. men everywhere must seek to interpret the gospel of Christ and trans late it into action from minds Clear to that gospel Pur pose. A he Cross of Christ the greatest event in history and lies at the very heart of this gospel that men must interpret. The Way to Unity in this divided world involves Tho task of bearing the Cross which entails sacrifice and Devotion to a truth that eternal. It when the supreme love which was demonstrated by Christ on the Cross the basis of All our living that the new world order comes into sight. The Rev. M. Holly
