COURT NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

COURT NEWS On Monday, September 1, a white man was convicted on a charge of supplying liquor to aboriginals. He was fined £10 and costs. The Magistrate, Mr. Nichols, commented on this offence, and said 'that in future persons who were brought up in front of him on the charge of supplying liquor to aboriginals would be sent to prison instead of being fined, as he considered this charge a ser ious offence.' On Thui*sday, September 4, three persons were prosecuted for riding bicycles without lights. One of the easiest ways to be come popular is to remember the nice things folk say about a per son, and repeat them to him.

FLOATING DOWN THE MARANOA RIVER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

FLOATING DOWN THE MARANOA RIVER jf ^— JO!—— The Wanderer was the pro prietor of a sawmill on the rail way near the town of Mitchell, a place situated on the Maranoa River. Now sawmilling there is chiefly Cyprus pine, not the Cen tralian type, but huge logs which in life rear up some 120 feet and are as straight as a gun barrel. This wood is especially useful as it is no^ suitable provender for white ants and is consequently always used in the base of houses and their 10 ft. blocks below. Timber was getting short and trips of 30 to 40 miles when taken by teams of horses were slow ami costly, especially as sawn pine was sold at 18/- per 100 super feet. One day reading a Can adian book on how they brought millions of feet of timber down rushing rivers, talks of booms, etc., with all the glamor of how the hero balanced on logs defied the wicked villian, and of course, so charmed the heroine that she just naturally fell in his arms after first falling in the river. The idea flashed throu...

For the Children PURE NONSENSE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

For the Children — :o: — PURE NONSENSE BY JULIA ANNE Once upon a time, long, long, ago, there lived a Daschund. A daschund is a long, thin dog, who looks as though he needs another pair of legs in the middle to hold him up. Mostly he is called a sausage dog, because he looks like one. Well, up till the time this par ticular dog was born all the dasch unls were short and tubby Why arn't they now ? Well wait a moment, and I will tell you. This dog-, whom we will call Fritz, was a great boaster. He boasted about his pedigree; he boasted about his beautiful coat, and his silk ears, and most of all he boasted about his size. He would corner one of his very few friends and start a one-sided con versation like this : 'Do you think my coat is as glossy as it was yesterday ? I hove 'just been for a swim and I can't do anything with it. I must really go on a diet because I am getting too fat. You know no other clog around here is as round as I am. I can roll up in a ball as small as you like....

PLANE CRASH AT BOND SPRINGS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

PLANE CRASH AT BOND SPRINGS A Tiger Moth plane, owned and flown by Messrs. Fat and John Davis, of Hamilton Downs Station, near Alice Springs, crashed at Bonds Springs late on Monday afternoon. The plane had just taken off and had risen about forty feet when the engine cut-out. It is believed that the machine is badly damaged, but the two accu pants were not seriously injured, both are in the Alice Springs Hos pital where John has a dislocated shoulder and Pat a smashed left maxillary bone, part of which has penetrated the antrim. Bond Springs is about twelve miles from Alice Springs. The longest word in the English language is the one following the phrase: 'And now a word from our .sponsor.'

TO THE EDITOR SUGGESTION FOR VIADUCT IN CONCRETE ACROSS THE TODD RIVER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

TO THE EDITOR SUGGESTION FOR VIADUCT IN CONCRETE ACROSS THE TODD RIVER Sir. — Whilst serving with the forces in the Territory during' the war, I saw the Todd River come down in Hood several times, each time washing surface oil', the causeway and breaking it up. Every time it had to be i-epaired, often holding up the convoys, and proving an inconvenience. On one occasion a young chap of the 121 Transport, I believe, had to be rushed to hospital with appendi citus and the truck that he was in got stuck in the flood on the causeway, and it was only with great difficulty that he was taken across. In early 1945, a semi trailer was caught in the flood and carried ofV the causeway and downstream for a hundred yards or so. I suggest a simple viaduct in concrete, six to eight feet above the river bed, with three foot pipes at intervals to allow the water through. The pi'esent method whilst good and service able when dry, simply allows the whole volume of water to go over the top like a wier....

THE COLONEL HAD WHO-DAT TROUBLE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

THE COLONEL HAD WHO-DAT TROUBLE The flying fortresses were wing ing high over France, heading for the Channel and their bases in Britain. They had successfully bombed a certain bi'idge in the Vosges Mountains and it had been a milk run — sporadic flak and no fighter opposition. Now they were out of enemy territory, it was time for the pilots to engage in a little banter over the radio to break the monotony and light en the fatigue of the run home. But all they expected to hear this trip was the monotonous droning of their engines and an occasional crips command from the old man in the lead plane, because that morning, at briefing, the order had come down that there would be stricter radio discipline in the future and that violators would be punished. Finally, however, one bored pilot could stand the silence no longer. Depressing his mike button, he whispered softly into his mask, 'Who dat ?' ' Almost immediately another pilot inquired in a muffled voice, 'Who dat say who dat ?' Then...

SEAMAN, WHAT AILS THOSE SHARKS ? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

SEAMAN, WHAT AILS THOSE SHARKS ? A navy lieutenant was in com mand of a ship assigned to long and dreary patrol cruises. He relates that to break the monotony of the endless days afloat, his men woi'ked hard at dreaming up new forms of amusement.' At one period they took to fishing for sharks. The excitement of catch ing the huge fish diverted them for a while, but by and by an other shark became just another shark — for what more was there to do than look them over and chuck them back again ? Then one' day off Kwajalein a member of the crew had an, idea. Hearing an unusual ' commotion topside, he hurried on deck to see what the men were up to. To his astonishment, he saw two big shai'ks thrashing about in the water near the ship — leaping, churning and diving over and un der each other as if they had gone crazy. Beckoning to the nearest sea man, the lieutenant asked, 'What the devil's the matter with those fish ?' 'Oh, nothing in particular, sir,' said the seaman, 'except that we'v...

PERSONAL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

PERSONAL This week at the R.S.L. Club we noticed Mr. Peter Beale, who has just arrived in with Connel— lan Airways from the Granites for a brief holiday. Mrs. Maughan, whose husband is manager of Alcoota station, is at present enjoying a brief holiday in Alice Springs with her two children, Jeanette and Billy. Mr. A. Webster whose letter appears on page 8 of this issue, and who incidentally offers some suggestions to improve our cause— way over the Todd River, is doing a spot of painting scenic beauty spots of the Territory. Amongst his very attractive paintings is one of Elsey Falls, painted in its real glory. We hope to see him painting scenic spots around Alice Springs such as Stanley Chasm, Emily Gap, Simpson's Gap, etc. Mr. Thonemann, who called in to see us recently, says he is writ— ing a book with the title 'What a Black Woman Thinks of a White Man.' Well, if she tells it all, it should be very interesting, and we are looking forward to its publi— cation. We hope the Native ...

TALKING DOG [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

TALKING DOG One afternoon 50-year-old Al fred Brissenden, a night watch man, was taking a dish of tea with his wife in their cottage on Green Street, Royston, Hertford shire. Beside them sat Ben, (!, their black-and-white, smooth haired fox terrier. Just as Mrs. Brissenden passed Mr. Brissenden the biscuits, a voice said : 'I want one.' 'There was a bit of silence,' said Mr. Brissenden. I looked at my wife and she looked very hard at me. 'Did you speak ?' she asked me.. 'Take it easy, dear,' I 'said, 'but I think it was Ron » After that Ben talked again. His vocabulary was .limited -to^^.. just those three words : 'I want one.' But he pronounced them for chocolate, beer, bones and other delicacies. People flocked to hear Ben utter the three words that are uppermost in the minds of food-rationed Britons : 'I want one.' London newsmen 'inter- viewed' Ben. Dog fanciers bid for him (top offer to date: £500). For one and all, Ben said grac iously : 'I want one.' Recently Ben visited Dr. ...

GOVERNMENT ATTACKED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

GOVERNMENT ATTACKED — — '? w ? ? The1 Federal President of the Liberal Party (Mr. R. G. Casey) in a speech to the Liberal' Party's Federal Council meeting in Mel bourne, made these '? indictments against the Government : — 1. It had allowed Communism to become enshrined in the vitals of the Labor movement in Aus tralia. 2. It had shown an indifference to the fate of Britain, an indiffer ence which, he said, he was cer tain was not reflected in the minds of the vast majority of Australians. 3. It had left undone what it should have done in day-by-day preaching, to the workers and the people generally, the need for the greatest possible production. 4. Its banking proposals were the first example of the real .significance of its socialist ob jective. 5. It had a hideous conception of a class war which was basically responsible for a great many of the political, social and industrial troubles which beset Australia today. 'FULL-TIME TASK' Mr. Casey said that although he had came into the...
