RACE CLUB INQUIRY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

RACE CLUB INQUIRY There has been an interesting sequel to the race meeting held last week-end. On Saturday (first day of rac ing) Dnieper, a favorite for the Breeders' Cup Handicap, during the running in some way hurt his near foreleg, and was pulled' up -by his jockey (J. - O'Callaghan)), who dismounted and led the horse in to the enclosure. The horse was limping then. The stewards called for the Gov ernment Veterinary Surgeon (Col. Rose) and asked him to examine the horse. Col. Rose, after a brief exam ination, is reputed to have told the Stewards that he would make a thorough examination after the horse cooled down. On Sunday morning, another examination of Dnieper took place, and the vet. is said to have passed the verdict that the horse was dis tinctly lame, and that it would be unwise to race it again on Mon day. However, later in the day, the horse seemed better and the owner, Mr. Don Chalmers, decided to run him again in the Ladies' Trophy Handicap, 'which Dnieper won comfor...

Gamble, who has recently arrived from Eng and and is at the moment the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Krantz, of Alice Springs. : During the evening, Miss Gamble gave a most interesting talk on the present living condi tions in England! : In her talk, our visitor- gave us an insight into just what the Britishers are going through, of the troubles and worries that a housewife has to put up with, of making the meagre rations stretch to have a visitor, of trying to dis guise one of their few unrationed goods (potatoes), of digging up their gardens and lawns to plant more food, the consequential lack of color in the homes, the shab biness of homes and buildings un painted with their broken and battered windows from the blitz days, of how elderly people are given an extra ration of tea to help the morale, that the older folk, through age, cannot stand in queues t...

He got busy and a fine healthy little paper was born. It was a voice crying in tiie high ways. I fell in love with . that little paper for it was the voice of a people.

NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH Mark Twain, in his reporting days, was instructed by an editor never to state anything as a fact that he could not verify from per sonal knowledge. Sent out to cover an important 'social event soon afterward, he turned in the following story : 'A woman giv ing the name of Mrs. James Jones, who is reported to be one of the social leaders of the city, is said to have given what purported to be a party yesterday to a number of alleged ladies. The hostess claims to be the wife of a reputed attorney.'

COOKING TROUBLE FOR COOK [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

COOKING TROUBLE FOR COOK When it comes to male manipu lators of the fryinp; pun and iniiicc picmakers, which is the Wander er's fancy name for cooks, there are good and bad. Tho good cooks, according to him, generally marry young and are treasured by their wives for life, as well a.s receiving wholehearted tributes at the mothers' meetings and the ladies' sewing guild. The good cooks, indeed, grow up to bo kind fathers, and worshipful masters of lodges, sometimes city council lors, whose names become house hold words, and whose cooking masterpieces remain a tradition in the home as the sort that mother used to make. Not so the bad cooks. Their names are spoken of rudely in shearers' huts and miners' camrjf, always allied to unsavory adjec tives. When a bad cook leaves a job, generally to the accompani ment of rifle fire or gunshot, the Wanderer reckons the invariable remark around the cookhouse that night is: 'What pore cow 'ave pot Mm now !' The odd part about it is that a bad cook...

MURRANJI STOCK ROUTE POISONING [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

MUKKANJI STOCK ROUTE POISONING The Chief Veterinary Officer and Mr. Mulhearn have both, on difF erent occasions, had recent oppor tunities of studying cases of poisoning of cattle on the Murran ji Route. From information sup plied by drovers, very few mobs travelling this route this year have escaped sickness and loss, al though losses have not been heavy in any instance. In almost all cases the sickness shows up in the cattle after they have com pleted the long dry stage between Top Springs and No. 13 Bore. From the symptoms and post mortem findings, it is reasonably certain that the trouble is* a vege table poisoning, and tests are at present being carried out at Alice Springs to pi'ove this suspicion. It is hoped to avoid this trouble by effecting improvements to this section of the Murranji track.

FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

FOOTBALL Tt is pleasing to see such a large crowd attending our Sunday foot ball matches, and it is to be hopel that they continue to attend in large numbers. Our new Cen tral ian Football Association wants support, as this is a new venture, and we hope, a successful one. They must have the backing of the public, so go along on ' Sunday afternoons and cheer your team to victory. The match played between the Federals and the Rovers last Sun day was probably the best game of football seen here for excite ment and good play. The Federals started oil' to put on a foui'-goal lead to quarter time and from that fact they apparently thought the game as good as won. But the Rover players steadily brought their score up to within four points, making the progressive scores at half-time: Federals 4 goals 0 points to Rover's .'3 goals 8 points. From half-time to the end of the game the battle was really on. Federals trying to establish a strong lead, which they did at times, but careful play by ...

OUR WEEK-END OF RACING Races Not Up To Standard [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

OUR WEEK-END OF RACING Races Not Up To Standard While everybody will admit that a postponed race meeting has a few disadvantages, no one could say that it was through this point that the August meeting, August 2.'5 and 25, was a washout. With so few ' horses to run a meeting we were lucky to st?c only one walk over. With only an average of three horses per race throughout, the racegoers got little enjoyment for their week end outing. Surely we could find more horses and have hotter condi tions to run a decent meeting. There is plenty of time before the next meeting to reorganise and make the local meeting some thing to bo proud of; to attract the outback people of the Terri tory into town to help us make and enjoy a good meeting. Jf the racing was far from good, at least the racecourse itself was well looked after. The track was in splendid order, and the newly planted lawns are rapidly making our grandstand enclosure look very attractive. The new railing around the enclosure, const...

MEDICAL TO WOODGKEEN STATION At 8 a.m. Monday morning, (he Flying Doctor Base at Alice Springs contacted Con nellan Airways, who operate the aircraft for the Flying Doctor Service of Australia (S.A. Branch), regarding an urgent medical case from Waite River for an elderly num, William Charles Lowe, who required medical treat ment without delay. The Fly ing Doctor Base arranged for the patient to he taken from Waitc River into Woodgreen Station, the nearest landing strip. No pilots were available at the time to do the medical in the ambulance plane (a converted Tiger Moth), owing to the delayed schedule of the Mt. lrwin mailrun due -to the heavy rains, so it meant one of two things — recalling the Dragonfly VH-UTJ from the Mt. lrwin mailrun, or diverting the other Dragonfly VH-UXB on the retimi trip from the Borroloola mailrun. The Flying Doctor Base then attempted to contact the pilot of VH-UTJ at Hermanns burg Mission, but the plane had landed before they received the message, and ...
