      HE WHO GOES UP . . DOESN'T ALWAYS COME DOWN
      Mr. Gordon Mote, Yass modern home furnisher, recently uncovered a 1928 edition of the 'Yass Tribune' when he took up some linoleum. In the paper he read a par concerning Mr. W. E. James, ex- Yass motor cyclist and ace racing car driver, who is now a director of Wollongong and South Coast Aviation Services and managing-director of Ronald Mackellar Pty. Ltd., Wollongong. The paper described how Wally James, the youth, went up Yass' steep cemetery hill road at 72 m.p.h. on a Harley Davidson. Commented a recent edition of the 'Tribune': 'That was 18 years ago . . . and, unlike a lot of other folk, James went up the cemetery hill and came down again."
