TRUCKING YARDS AT ALICE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
TRUCKING YARDS AT ALICE This paper would like to bring1 before the notice of the Railway Commissioner a matter of uiir trucking yards. Alice Springs is growing fast, spreading on all sides and at the present: time, there is not one allotment that the ] -ands Department can offer for sale to the many incomers who wish to buy, build and live here. Our trucking yards that handle hundreds of cattle each week is now situated far too close to the town, those same cattle are dis turbed by the continuous roar of the many motor trucks that race around day and ni^ht with their silencers off. The continuous mill around has cut the soil to a depth of some eitfht inches into S !ii! dust, that when the wind ('?vaes from the west envelopes the town . in a ?loud of dirt, it sh not only fi'th, but most unpleasant and unfair to tho many stoves v,-hn are, carry in,' expensive and hard to got drapery and other goods from which this dirt clings without a chance of removal er-cept through the wash tub.

TOURISTS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
TOURISTS This paper is always pleased to extend the hand of friendship to our Southern visitors and we had the pleasure of meeting some of these on Monday when about to leave for the Hermansburg Mis sion. Speaking of their interesting trip and describing themselves as Resonians (Reso Tours) and on their way to see the North as far as Darwin. The party consisted of all class es of business, professional prim ary industries representatives, and among them Sir R. J. Barnewall. Their trip, enjoyable because of the wonderful attention of the railway staff and unexpected good meals. But their opinion of the country from Hawker to Oodna datta was that the Blacks in mak ing the deal had the best end of the stick. However, from Oodna datta they were pleasantly sur prised and when near Alice Springs delighted not only with the scenery, but the good class of co\mtry and its possibilities. They were astonished at the low rate of rentals of such land, where water was plentiful and no strikes. Sa...

IS OUR ABO. POLICY “UP THE POLE”? A Giddyup Gallup ! [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
IS OUR ABO. POLICY 'UP THE POLK'? A Giddyup Gallup ! Northern Territorians are smil ing at the recent issue by Austra-, lian Public Polls of Melbourne of details relating to the Gallup i'oll on the Policy for Aborigines. 'Australians are of two minds on what policy would be best for those aborigines still living in their native state' says one Mel bourne newspaper in presenting the figures. 'A nation-wide Gal lup Poll shows that the white man is evenly divided between (a) Helping the aborigines to live their tribal lives and (b) Educating them towards white standards.' A view widely h'eld among the experienced residents of the North ern Territory where a substantial proportion of our black population is in natural habitat is that 'a nation-wide' poll on such a ques tion would lead to serious error. The question is asked : How many of the 2000 men and women said to have been asked to express an opinion on the subject were romnptont to do po ?' 'Residents nf thncn nr^as wh^rf the blac...

A reply has been received from Mr. J. E.- Cum mins, Officer in Charge of the In formation Service, recommending the coast boobialla 'Myporjum insulare' and the Athel Tree (Tamarix aphylla). Through the courtesy of the South Australia Department of Agriculture we reproduce below Mr. It. J. Heriott's leaflet on 'The Athel Tree' which should be of interest not only to Granites area people but all those whose climatic conditions approximate to it. The letter suggests that cuttings might be obtained from the Zinc Corporation, Broken Hill. There are 64 known sr-ecies of Tamarix.

THE DRAMA OF LIFE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
THE DRAMA OF LIFE Life, dear friends, is like a huge stage in which we all, take part, whether we like it or not. Some people are star performers, lead ing artist'.-., while other play a , mcrp denmre part, nevertheless they d - play and occasionally steal the li:--'1;«rht from their more fa moil.'' 'mothers or sisters. Each in turn perform some part of this play, sometimes drama, sometimes comedy. We are in a way fortunate that as well as actors we also are the audience, most of us more often in the audience than on the stage.

FUTURE OF NORTHERN TERRITORY Prospects of Advancement [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
Future of northern territory Prospects of Advancement Recent decisions by the Federal &nbsp; authorities indicate a measure of the promised post-war attention to the Northern Territory. To pull three rabbits from the official hat there is determination to have Darwin a Government town; the benevolent attempt to reconcile conflicting elements in Native Affairs; and the departmental blessing bestowed upon the pro posed oil research in the North West. A mixed bag this, and one that is invoking discussion among Territorians whether they meet alongside iced ale in the hotels of Alice, Tennants or Darwin, around some brackish stock route bore, or take a swig and spit out the high ly-mineralised liquid refreshment in the desert soaks. A great opportunity presents itself to fuse the Northern Terri tory with the rest of Australia to ,which it belongs. Until soldiers l^arae here in their thousands on war duties many Australians, if they thought about it at all, re garded the Centralia...
