The Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Senator Cavanagh, today

announced the appointment of Miss Lois O'Donohue, an Aboriginal officer

of the South Australian branch, as Acting Director of the branch during

the month of March, during the absence of Mr. John Millar who is on leave.

Another Aboriginal, Mr. Reg Saunders, has been acting in charge

of the Cairns area Office for sane weeks during the absence on leave of the

head of the Office.

The Minister also noted with pleasure the promotion of Mr. Ken
