concerts to raise money for famine relief in Africa, Commercial Motor has announced this week its further involvement with the Save the Children Fund.
CM is to organise road transport services in any stricken area in the world. This is our way of assisting the industry to become usefully involved in the relief work.
It will involve us in a great deal of organisation which we consider to be worthwhile. It will also require great cooperation from operators and manufacturers, but we do not anticipate any problems on this front, because transport operation is a business which produces the right kind of people to make a success of such a scheme. Every day, operators meet and overcome a variety of problems. We neither underestimate the immensity o the task of famine relief, nor the abilit, the industry to cope with it.
Quite apart from the enormous bent to the people where the need is greates there will be a similar benefit to the tranport industry. This is an opportun: albeit in tragic circumstances, for road transport to show itself in a better ugh than normal. For too long it has been much maligned branch of society throughout Europe, more particularly Britain.
We hope that our judgment of CM readers is accurate.
