I was very pleased to hear in the regional news, this morning, that your Committee is concerned about some types of comics & Literature, we, the S.T. Group of C.W.A., have asked before, for the banning of these by the Government. I have on our Agenda paper for our Group Conference at Cooma on Oct. 14 next, the following resolution. "That, while we are concerned about the effect of telivision [sic] on the minds of the youth of our land, we work for a more moral tone in the daily Press, & I urge the N.S.W. Government to place a ban on some types of comics & literature as is found in other States."
So maybe we will have your support with this. Wishing you the best in your new position.

The Catholic Women's League wishes to support, wholeheartedly, the very excellent recommendation put to the Advisory Council by Mr. W. Byrne in connection with the sale of objectionable literature in the A.C.T.
At the Federal Conference of Catholic Women held in Hobart last year the following recommendation was carried, "That our Federal Council of Catholic Women approach the Federal Government on the importation and publication here in Australia of objectionable literature, pictures and articles, and that we support any other organisations working for stricter censorship."
We are happy to have the opportunity of carrying out this recommendation.
(Mrs.) N.M. Thomas. Hon. Sec.
