FOOTBALL PIONEERS v. ROVERS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

FOOTBALL PIONEERS v. ROVERS Despite the rainy week-end our footballers were stilLable to make the field, and give the spectators an opportunity of seeing theii' usual Sunday afternoon game. Drizzling rain during the after noon kept the ground dead, and made hard work for the players to pick up the ball cleanly. During the first quarter the Pioneers established a lead'of four . goals and looked at this early stage to be distinctly on top. But the Rovers were determined to battle it out and by half-time had brought their score to within six points of the Rovers. The Rovers seem to like the wet ground much better than the Pioneers, and were at this stage handling the ball in a far superior manner. The last half of the game was fought out in fine style and the Pioneers, through more consistent kicking, gradually drew away to win by 16' points. Filial scores were as follows :— Pioneers — 9 goals 9 points. Rovers — G goals 11 points. Goalkickers : — Pioneers H. Peck ham fi, S. Peckham 1, ...

ABORIGINALS AND DRINK [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

ABORIGINALS AND DRINK This week at the Alice Springs Coui-t, a man was prosecuted and fined on a charge of supplying: liquor to aboriginals, the Magis trate commented on this charge, and warned the Court that in future he would give a heavier conviction, namely prison instead of a fine. Few people realise how serious this charge is and what damage can be done by supplying liquor to aboi'iginals. Consequent re sults of a person drinking liquor, who is not accustomed to (If*, should be well known. The molesting of passers-by, lack of manners, language and perhaps assault. These items are only a few of many. The first drink taken so often creates a craving for more. This in aboriginals often leads to sly grog dealing: with a white man. This man who degrades the abor iginals for a few paltry shillings, should be severely dealt with -yhen caught.

HOW ACCIDENTS CAN HAPPEN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

HOW ACCIDENTS CAN HAPPEN If you will persist in riding your bicycle at night without a light, don't blame the police for prosecuting you. They are 'only trying to minimise the rate of accidents, and so perhaps, save your life. Do you realise what danger you are leaving yourself open to ? A driver of another vehicle cannot al ways see you until he is right on top of you, and then it is too late for both parties and another road accident happens. Be fair to the public and the police, and co-operate by seeing you have a good light on that bicycle of yours when next you go riding at night.

TENNANT CREEK FOOT BALL TEAM ? It has been heard on rather good authority, that Tennant Creek are doing their best to gather a football team to bring down to Alice Springs to show the locals how the game should be played.

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, SEPTEM. G, 1947. IMMIGRATION, HOUSING AND STRIKES In the field of immigration Mr. Calwell is doing pood work, we want all he can get and more. There is ample room for them, provided they are of the type that want work and are willing to do something1 that will pay their way.

What is the programme they are going to adopt ? Our abo's scheme of gathering a few bushes and hope for the best is no good. Are they bringing out carpenters, sawmiilers and all the other fraternity that can do what is necessary to build ? We have some scores of thousands who are im patiently waiting for homes, and the home-building is getting fur ther behind month, by month.

ONLY A FIVER TO SPEND LONDON, August 28. [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

ONLY A FIVER TO SPEND LONDON, August 28. Shops aboard the liner Queen Elizabeth, at present bound for New York from Southampton, ai*e virtually out of bounds to British passengers as a result of the limitation of their cash allow ance of £5 sterling, because pui1 chases must be made in cash. A 'Daily Mail' correspondent, who radio-telephoned the Queen Elizabeth, was told that 800 Bri tish passengers were wistfully counting their £5 in cash as they watch 1,200 Americans spending freely. One passenger said : — 'Limita- tion to a fiver in notes has created problems for the British. Tips alone usually absorb a fiver for a first-class passenger. 'The British are on equality with other passengers only in the bar, where drinks are signed for and the bill settled at the end of the voyage with sterling in tra vellers' cheques. They can't even participate in the auction on the ship's daily run as tickets cost up to 10/-. 'It isn't only the lack of cash that distinguishes a Briton,' the passen...

Commonwealth Bank to lend, money at cost to borrowers who may require it to build homes to erect and equip workshops, to cultivate land or to engage in any other activity in connection with the various branches of essential production and services.' Nationalised banking, Senator Cameron declares, will also en able the State and Federal Gov ernments to borrow money at cost where it was required to finance governmental works which would be revenue-producing and which would be carried out independent ly of the likes and dislikes of the directors of private banks or fin- ' ancial institutions.
