Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

Women's Column CUP OP TEA CHAT BY SUE Good morning friends ! Our activities were restricted consid erably last week by the unusual weather, and no doubt many were inconvenienced and disappointed. But Vn\ sure we all remembered to rejoice with the manonthe land to whom such rain would be very welcome. I felt relieved to have another week to prepare myself for my spring debut. Wearing my. glamoi'ous, if large, 'oomphies' — not Clementines, please. Editor ! — will be something of an ordeal for me. I really think I will need a 'prelim.' or two, if only I can find a secluded spot in which to test my gait ! Maybe you have noticed the Wednesday afternoon activity on the lawn in front of our doctor's residence. On good authority I have it that the women who gather there each week are working on books — doctoring the old and pre paring the new, for a Lending Library. The Free Kindergarten Committee have this work in hand and when all is in readiness the library will be open to the public. Mo...

For the Children THE BROWN COAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

For the Children BY JULTA ANNE THE BROWN COAT Many years ago in the window of a big shop there was shown a fashionable coat. It was brown and had a fur collar. Many people on passing looked longingly at it, but because of the price only a very rich person could buy it. One day a very wealthy lady , entered the shop and asked in a loud voice to see the coat. The shop girls huri'ied to do her bid ring because her husband was head of the firm, and if she took a dislike to a girl she would get her dismissed. This lady tried on the coat and decided that she liked it, so she bought it and took it home. cShe wore it that winter, but ?when the next one came round she decided the coat was out of fash ion, and so it was left hanging in the wardrobe. Many years later, after the woman had died, her married daughter was sorting out her be longings when she came upon an old but perfectly good brown coat. 'This looks' a good coat,' sho said to herself. 'I wonder what I can do with it,' So she took...

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, AUGUST 23, 1947. NATIONALISATION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, AUGUST 2X, 1947. N A T I O N A L I S A T I O N The j-econt statement of Mr. Chifley that the Government will take over or close all private trad ing banks of Australia, must have came to those banks like a douse of very chilly water on an already cold morning'. It is a disaster that must make the holders of bank stock shiver even more than the bank officials themselves, as they emerged thunderstruck from tu.il a statement, will conic (jur.ims of how they are to be re imbursed, are they to be repaid from the money held for their various customers, or are they to accept payments' in bonds at U per cent., or is it that the unfor tunate depositor is to be made tho victim. Under either arrange ment there will be for some timo a number of Australians that will have those symptons of goose flesh as described in one of the Wanderer's recent stories in this paper. The whole scheme is one of sur mise and there is little doubt that thei-e is likely to be one of th...

MICA MINING INDUSTRY HARTS RANGE In July, 194(5, Cabinet approved of the contin uation of Commonwe.alth control of the mica industry until De cember, 1947, the matter to be reviewed prior to that date. Hecently there was evidence of some sales of mica to private buy ers, and the rise of twenty per cent, in the price of mica as' from 1st Juuuary, ]J)47, was not con sidered sufficient by the majority of miners.

BOOMERANGS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

BOOMERANGS Recently a tourist asked vis to elucidate the difference in boom erangs and drew our attention to the thrower boomerang, the come back and the killer. This is a matter that the Wan derer does know something about. In 1927 he gave an exhibition of boomerang throwing in a park at Sydney. It' was to have been a private exhibition and approxi mately 100 people were invited. At the appointed time 1,000 were waiting. Just how they got the news is not known and within half an hour after the performance had started, 2,000 were present and yinore were still coming. At about this time a portly old gentleman came away from the crowd and walked into the arena, unfortunately the Wanderer had not seen his entry, being intent on the flight of a comeback boomerang. The first Ihing he knew was the returning boomer ang, with tremendous pace and on a level with a man's head, going past, and the stout old man, who also at this time realising that something dangerous was coming direct to him,...

DARWIN'S ERRATIC WEATHER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

DARWIN'S ERRATIC WEATHER The weather at Darwin is causing much conjecture and head-wagging. The past week has shown overcast skies, an in crease in humidity, showers of rain, and grey murky seas. Most of Darwin's' citizens have decided that they are to be favored with an early wet. Our correspondent says: 'This means a cessation of swimming for most people. Well, I guess we can . take it along with the milk, flour, and cereal shortage.'

REMOVAL OF BEACH SAND AT DARWIN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

REMOVAL OF BEACH SAND AT DARWIN Concern is being1 ex perienced by the general public and by the Admin istration on account of the unlawful removal of sand from beaches.. One section of Fannie 13ay beach is in a disgraceful condition, caused by the laying down of pieces of arc-mesh, corrugated iron, brushwood, etc., for the passage of trucks in which sand has been removed from the beach, which in this particular section is ideally suited for recreation. It is, of course, recognised that builders and contractors must have sand, but it should be ap preciated that all beaches are for the use, and benefit, «f all the the public and not for any par ticular section of it. However, conceding the necessity implied in the first section of this paragraph, the Administration has set apart two sections of beach which could hardly be described as being suit able' for recreation, and is pre pared to issue licences to persons or institutions whose activities re quire the use of beach sand. These ar...

CONNELLAN AIRWAYS MT. IRWIN MAIL-RUN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

CONNELLAN AIRWAYS MT. IRWIN MAIL-RUN On schedule Tuesday morning the Connellan Airways Dragonfly VH— UXB, with two tourists, Mr. and Mrs. Searle, from Sydney, set out on the fortnightly mail-run service to Mt. Irwin, S.A. Mr. and Mrs.   Searle were eager to view the famous. Ayers .Rock   and also the Henbury meteorite craters (2nd largest craters in the world.) Misfortune beset them and they were destined not to complete their tour. On landing at the airstrip at Hermannsburg, the pilot found that after the heavy rain which had fallen in the pre— vious few days, the ground was very soft, and the eight of the aircraft, together with the mail and weight of passengers, caused the plane to sink about four inches deep in mud. The landing fields are very deceptive, for where walking on the runway to ascertain whether it was too heavy to land might indicate that it was quite firm, the best and most accurate method of check— ing the condition of the landing strips i...

'MID SHOT (HALF SHOT) AND SHELL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

'MID SHOT (HALF SHOT) AND SHELL One of these days you will come across a romantic short story of the Timor Sea (Timor tide wait for man is one of the Wanderer's school prize proverbs) beginning: 'A terrific Storm Overwhelmed the Barge . . .' That will be about us. It's not merely coin cidence; it's postively queer and uncanny how our southern au thors know onr mysterious North ern Territory coastline so intim ately that they can close their atlas and see it all. Besides there's never a tropical storm that isn't terrific; and there's al ways a vessel or two handy along the Darwin coast waiting to be overwhelmed. As the Wanderer said i when a bunch of tourists looking for color come aboard an ocean-going barge you've got to give in. Who are these arrayed in white you ask yourselves as they step briskly on to the deck? It's of no conseouence. One boatload's as good as another. A life on the rolling waves is O.K. for sound, as the film directoi-s say in Hollywood. But sometimes when its...
