A tribute to aerial travel services in Australia was made yesterday by Mr. G. B. Kilgour, London manager for F. H. Faulding and Co., Ltd., who arrived in Perth by the Bungana from Adelaide on Thursday afternoon. "I had breakfast yesterday morning in Adelaide and I still feel rather bewildered to find myself in Perth so soon," said Mr. Kilgour. "I came to the conclusion yesterday that, to obtain a proper idea of the vastness of Australia, and the distance between centres, it is essential to travel by air. The idea of distance can be gained from other forms of travel, but the aeroplane almost annihilates time, and gives the traveller the further advantage of a very much wider horizon. It seems to me that, in spite of recent unfortunate accidents, weather conditions and the type of country in Australia are admirably suited to aviation, which should have a splendid future. The recent mishaps appear to be merely an unfortunate sequence. One of the disadvantages under which Western Australia has always laboured has been the distance between centres, and flying should overcome that difficulty. I was able yesterday to do a journey which, in less than 20 years, has been reduced from five days to nine hours actual flying time. That improvement in transport demonstrates the value of the aeroplane to Western Australia." Mr. Kilgour originally came to Western Australia in 1912, and with the exception of the war period, resided in the state until 1925.. He is now paying his first visit to Perth in 12 years. Althought he had only been in Perth a few hours, he said, he had no doubt that the city had made more progress than any other Australian capital, particularly in regard to buildings. Mr. Kilgour is visiting Perth to renew contact with the local branch of his company, and to discuss the company's London activities, more especially in view of the very great changes in the business which have taken place in the 12 years since he left Perth. One of the most important of these changes was the growth of Australian industry, and there were alterations in relation to sources of supply which had been brought about by similar developments in other countries. He had been particularly Impressed, he said, with the manner in which Australian industry had grown, and its ability to supply its domestic markets. Mr. Kilgour will probably remain in Perth for three weeks.

This was stated yesterday by Mr. G. B. Kilgour, manager of the London office of F. H. Faulding and Co. Ltd., wholesale druggists and manufacturing chemists. Mr. Kilgour, who Is in Perth until Saturday on a business visit, was in charge of the company's office in this State for 11 years until 1925, when he went to London. Mr. Kilgour, who keeps in close touch with developments in drugs, said that anti-hvstaminics counter-effected hystamine in the body, which was responsible for a number of skin irritations It was also being used to counteract travel sickness. British research in drugs was to some extent eclipsed by America which had greater funds and more equipment at its disposal. European research had been restricted by the war and with few exceptions lagged behind the U.K. and U.S.A. Style Changed Nationalised medicine in the U.K., as in Australia had tended to change the style of dispensing in chemist shops to that of servicing prescriptions by a multitude of new organic ethical preparations Pfizer Ltd., an American firm which was one of the biggest manufacturers of antibiotics in the world, had established a factory in the U.K. four years ago. This firm, which was represented in Australia by Fauldings, mainly produced terramycine and a newer antibiotic in tetracyne which was applicable to a wider field than penicillin in controlling virus infection.
