ACTIVITIES C.E.M.A. (Council for the En- couragement of Music and Arts) committee is working hard, to form a programme for 1948. One of the aims is to decentralise the cultural activities of the city, and thus assist the country in par- ticipating in them. From the attendance at the Boyd Neel String Orchestra con- cert this year it was obvious that other similar concerts would bc appreciated here. One problem to be overcome is the urgent need of a concert grand piano. C.E.M.A. has at its disposal thc finest artistic mate- rial in Australia, but without the piano many artists would not bc available. Early next year a concert will be held in aid of the piano fund. 1 Local soloists, choirs and W.E.A. players will participate. Those wishing to become mem- bers of thc C.E.M.A. may. buy their membership cards from Mr. George Anson, Argent Street. Member's are entitled to preferen- tial booking at all C-E.M.A. ' functions. MOVE TO GET MORE PETROL A N B E R R A.-Thc Federal Govern- ment is negotiating; with a large oil company to expedíate delivery of -supplies of petrol from refineries at Sarawak and Balik Papan,;which s. will greatly ease, the petrol position in Aus- tralia. This was learned authoritatively today. At the' same time thc Govern- ment is directing a Commonwealth wide campaign of petrol economies, including the elimination of non- essential interstate road trips. It is believed that the oil in- terests have assured the Govern- ment that petrol obtained from British Borneo would bc purchas- able in sterling. This will greatly ease Australia's dollar position.
