      Mr. J. E. Broadbent, I.S.O., barrister of the Supreme Court and Parliamentary Draftsman of Queensland, is another clever son of this State whose able service together with his integrity i and kindliness have won for him a high place in the esteem of a succession of Governments, of his legal and 'official conferences and of the public generally.
      He is the son of the late Mr.'Kendall Broadbent, formerly of the Queensland Museum, and was bom at Kelvin Grove, at the State school of which suburb he received his primary educa tion. Later he attended, by scholarship, the Brisbane Grammar School, where he passed the Sydney University matriculation examination, and also obtained a two years 'extension trustees' scholarship. Then, as an external student of the University of Queensland, he passed examinations in ˇEnglish and in Logic and Psychology. He also passed the necessary examina tion and entered the Public Service in 1900. Four years later he was transferred to the Justice Department, where he successively occupied the positions of first clerk, secretary to the Representative of the Government In the Legislative Council, Parliamentary Secretary and Certifying Barrister under the Friendly Societies Acts, Assistant Parliamentary Draftsman, and, finally Parliamentary Draftsman on the translation to the Supreme Court bench In 1927 of the late Mr, Justice J. L. Woolcock. He was admitted as a barrister in 1919.
      As Parliamentary Draftsman, Mr. Broadbent has done notable work, and, in addition, since 1927 has been the sole editor of the Queensland Statutes volume. Mr. Broadbent acted as private secretary to the late Mr. T. J. Ryan while Premier, and also has ac- companied several other Premiers and Ministers of the State to Common- wealth and State Conferences. At Melbourne, in May and June of last year, he was a member of the legal drafting' committee appointed in connection with the legislation which has since been enacted pursuant to the Premiers' Rehabilitation Plan, and at Which conference Queensland was rep- resented by the Premier (Mr. Moore) and the Treasurer (Mr. W. H. Barnes). Mrs.'Broadbent was formerly Miss Daisy Stewart Nelson, daughter of the late Mr. A. B. Nelson and* grand- daughter of the late Mr. George Stewart, of Wilston, Brisbane.
