Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - As Senator DrakeBrockman has facetiously referred to my actions in this chamber I desire to say that I have a very great capacity for listening to what other people are saying, although I may be reading. I am able to concentrate one portion of my, intellect upon an honorable senator's speech, and at the same time to follow something that may be of greater importance in an evening newspaper. I can prove it by saying that while Senator Drake-Brockman was speaking I was following his argument and reading with pleasure that the Austalian cricketers, after a very bad start, had compiled a total of 263 runs, of which number Gregory had contributed 104 not out.
