PRICE OF GOLD [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947
PRICE OF GOLD The following article, written by Sidney .1. Barker and, taken from the 'News,' Adelaide, bears out the repeated articles printed in the 'Centralian Advocate' from time to time. We are pleased to see that some other paper besides ourselves is taking notice. Now the American dollar is worth 0/1 in our currency (which apparently America won't take) so that the 00 to 70 dollars men tioned means that at 50 dollars the price would be £15/4/0 per oz., while at 70 dollars the price would be ,i'2 1/0/7 per oz. as against our present price, less gold tax, 17/7i, .C9/17/7A per oz. When our Government is pre pared to pay the world's parity, we shall not be able to see our selves for dust and gold 'ffcist at that. It is hard to understand why, considering they are only paying us in notes, that they do not pay the limit and soe an army at work, instead of men leaving for other avenues where pay is sure nnd no risk. We think the gold miners and mica miners are getting a scurvy deal....

Donnellan and Miss K. Gamble, decided to award the prizes as ? follows : — Flower garden — Fulton, 1; Madley, 2. Vegetable garden — Madley, 1 ; Mrs. C. Simmounds, 2. The judges had a very difficult task in front of them, and decided .that besides the prizes awarded for flower and vegetabje gardens, that special merit should be given to Mr. Muldoon's gardens at the Alice Springs jail, which were a wonderful credit to him. We feel sure that the coming year will see increased entries in the local garden competition, and we hope that on that occasion the judges will have an even more difficult task. Thanks should be given to W. R. Chalme...
