SOUVENIR COPY OF 'CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE' The personnel of the 'Cen- tralian Advocate' has much pleasure in submitting today the Souvenir Copy. It is the first paper to be published in Centralia and will in years to come when the N.T. is a flourishing State, ' has its own parliament, be a copy that has a sentimental value. With this in mind many people are ordering a dozen copies each and we are printing 500 extra copies for late enquiries, to send to various friends in all parts of the world.

STORM OVER SUGGESTED ALTERATION OF AIR ROUTE DARWIN TO MELBOURNE OR DARWIN TO ADELAIDE? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
STORM OVER SUGGESTED ALTERATION OF AIR ROUTE ? :O: ? DARWIN TO MELBOURNE Oil DARWIN TO ? ADELAIDE ? The greatest surprise find con sternation has been created by the contemplated alteration to our Air Service, by the suggestion that Adelaide be bypassed and that the T.A.A. may take over a service that will operate from Melbourne via Brbken Hill to Alice Springs and on to Darwin. We feel that it is rough usage to a company that had the initia tive to pioneer this service some ten years ago and has ran it to everybody's satisfaction ever since. At present there is the usual accusations and denials from each side, but the letter sent to Mr. Playford by Mr. Chifley, speaks volumes and shows the reading on the wall. We, who do all our business through Adelaide feel that if it comes off it is a scurvy deal to the Territory. All urgent business with Adelaide must then he done by telegram with inconvenience and expense. This paper thinks that in mat ters of importance this Northern Territor...
A GOOD WORK—A GOOD JOB [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
A GOOD WORK—A GOOD JOB In this, our first issue we feel that acknowledgment should be placed on record of the noble work of our spiritual organisations in caring for the spiritual and tem poral needs of so many children whose homes are far from Alice1 Springs. It is evident that this care is of a very high standard, and last, but not least, the scholastic record of the children, is some thing to be well and truly ap preciated. This scholastic record also has a grand reflection at the State High School, whose -resident Head, Mr. Les Dodd, B.A., is doing a fine work in the education of our future citizens. Children from these schools come from Wyndham, Darwin and as ' far south as Oodnadattn and Adelaide, Children coming from so far afield is proof of the spirit ual and scholastic opportunities offered plus our first class climate.
