He Serves the Outback [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947
He Serves the Out back Almost fabulous is the story of the Last of the Pioneer Airline Operators, E. J. Connellan, whose 90 landings a fortnight over his 7000 miles of routes gives one of the most amazing services in the world of modern aviation. This story was written by Stanley Broaden and reprinted from the June issue of 'Aircraft.' YEAR OF EXPANSION AND CONSOLIDATION The biggest step in Connellan's development came in July, 194y, and it is from that period that he considers his services wei'e upon a permanent footing. The P.M.G. requested him to run a new ser vice to Hermannsburg, Tempo Downs, Kulgera, Mt. Irwin, Erl dunda, Doctor's Stones and back to Alice, ''and to increase the Wyncl ham service to 2,700 miles (with 36 landings, including the Kimber ley stations at Ord River, Turkey Creek, etc.). A new contract gave him £400 a year for the monthly Mt. Irwin run and £5,400 a year for the increased Wyndham run. The stoi-y behind that reorgan isation may be that if the new contra...

DAWSON v. PATRICK FIGHT On Monday night, September 1, Freddie Dawson, 9.7i, American negro, knocked out Vic Patrick, 9.9 in the last round of a 12-round contest after what has been reported as the most exciting fight seen, in the Sydney stadium for j some time. } Vic Patrick, the Australian lightweight champion, was im mediately after the fight taken to St. Vincents Hospital for atten- j tion. From start to finish the fight i had the stadium crowd l'ight on I their feet. ' I Dawson fighting with terrific speed took the first two rounds and had at this early stage a very unsettled opponent. The third and fourth rounds were punishing ones for both fighters. It was in the fifth that Patrick took the initiative. Round six went again to Eatrick, as he launched attack after attack on Dawson. The seventh, eighth and ninth rounds gave Patrick a slight lead in points, and it was at this stage that Patrick's eyes, having been opened earlier, were troubling him. In the tenth round Patrick beca...
VICTORY LAD BEATS SHANNON [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947
VICTORY LAD BEATS SHANNON Rivers of money from the big punters (lowed on Shannon at Uanchvick last Saturday when he was beaten into second place by .Victory Lad in the Warwick Stakes. Shannon started at 3 to 1 on, while there was fair support for the winner at -- to .1. Shannon savaged Victory Lad about a fur long from home and this may have spoilt his winning chance as he was only a length behind at the finish, although the winner was a very (It horse and Shannon had not raced for months. Mr. Smith recently purchased Shannon for 2(5,000 guineas. At the same meeting the un beaten Temeraire won the llobart ville Stakes at a canter. There was no betting on this race.

SPREADING OF STRIKES IN BRITISH MINE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947
SPREADING OF STRIKES IN BRITISH MINE 40,000 miners are reported to be out on strike at the Yorkshire pits, England, and there as a general indication that the strikes will spread much further as colliery after colliery go- out in sympathy with the miners from C Jrimnthorpe, who struck over working a 2 ft. extra coal surface task, nearly three weeks ago. This serious stoppage has cost the 'Government n loss of ap VV ;xi mutely 200,000 tons, which ?CT*l-!cd with the 800,000 tons' of coal lost during the sum mer will bring the figures to just around a million tons, which Bri tain at the moment can ill afford.

FEWER CATTLE ON OFFER AT ABATTOIRS There was keen competition and- values were firm to dear er at the Abattoirs cattle mar ket on Monday,, when l,6Jj() were yarded, compared with 1,8(50 last week. There wore no heavyweight bullocks and relatively few mcdiiim weight steers in really good order. Cows wore plentiful and includ ed several drafts of station cows with bi.t,- frames in good condition.

NOTES FROM THE FINKE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947
NOTES FROM THE FINKE General conditions in the Finke district are very rosy. The best rain during the last twenty years fell recently very steadily for three days and nights to regis ter over three inches, naturally this was very welcome. Fat cattle very shortly will be trucked instead of stores. It is reported that two pastoral sta tions have recently changed hands at we believe very satisfactory prices to all concerned. The report vide the 'Centralian Advocate' that it is now 'officially confirmed that the trucking yards* are to be built' is very gratifying to all in the district. The hotel and local store are anticipating further increased business -which necessitates considerable addi tions to the present premises, at ..the moment they ai*c working to Yu II capaciiy. The work is to be gone on with as soon as possible. Mrs. T. King will become the new licencee of the hotel very shortly and all will wish her every success in her liew venture. We think Mrs. King will soon give the ...
