FOSSILS

Valuable Collection

PRESENTED TO DEPART-

MENT OF INTERIOR

A valuable collection of fossills has been presented to the Commonwealth Palaeontological Collection in Can- berra, by Mr. F. A. Cudmore, Honor- rary Palaeontologist to the National Museum, Melbourne.      

Announcing the gift yesterday, the Minister for the interior (Mr. T. Paterson) said that the collection in- cluded tertiary fossils from Victoria   South Australia and Tasmania, com-   prising over 1800 named specimens all of which were collected by Mr. Cudmore and were originally in his own private collection, as well as a

miscellaneous collection of Palaeozoic

Mesozoic and tertiary fossils, partly determined, from England and Aus-     tralia.    

The collection was regarded by de-   partmental experts as unique and as

a most desirable addition to the

Commonwealth collection.    

Mr. Paterson expressed deep ap-   preciation of Mr. Cudmore's public      

spirited and generous action in mak- ing the presentation.
