WATER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

WATER It would not be right to let our first issue, the Souvenir copy of 10 pages, go without reference to the most important question of all — \.ator. Sub-artesian water can be found in any part of Australia if looked for in the right place. Water underground runs in channels and although as at Alice Springs where the fall of the Ranges hun dreds of thousands of yearn ago acted as a dam to the caverns made by the seepage of the; limestone and thus made a reservoir that allows water to be found over a large area at very shallow depths. Usually, however, the action is quite different. Various chemicals like soda or magnesia, acts below as it does on the sur face (take for instance bore drains) th.-M-e it forms a coat and hardens the ground so that mulga country for instance which ordinarily will bog a due1: after rniiiK, will in the instance ? -' l]ow~ ing water male* i' a month those drains so hard that stock make no impression on the sides.

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, MAY 24, 1947. VOICE OF CENTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, MAY 24, 1947 VOICE OF CENTRALIA — :o: — The 'Centralian Advocate' to day takes a place in the commun ity life of the Northern Territory. 1' or the first time in its history, Lentralia has a Voice. The goodwill expressed towards it as the only newspaper to be published within almost a thousand miles north, south, east or west will, we trust, be justified as the weeks go on and a journalistic tradition is built. The purpose of the 'Centralian Advocate' is briefly stated : A weekly journal devoted to the de velopment of the Northern Terri tory and the interests of its peo ple. That slogran has been placed at the head of its columns today and will remain there. To that end it invites the co operation of all who have at heart the progress of this great section of our Commonwealth. There are wonderful potentialities to exploit, vast sparsely peopled spaces to fill. It aims to provide a truthful, accurate, factual record of the activities of the districts its ...

FIBRO PLASTER SHEET MAKING New Enterprise At Alice Springs [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

FIBRO PLASTER SHEET MAKING New Enterprise At Alice Springs A few months ago Mr. A. V. Woolfitt, former employee of the Allied Works Council and more recently of the Department of The Interior, decided to do something about the shortage of building materials. With a home of his own in prospect he conceived the idea of trying out his hand on making plaster sheets. There were ample supplies of plaster of paris about but little suitable material for base fabric. Taking up a block on the east side of the Todd River he erected a small shed and purchasing a ton of plaster began experimenting on a cement "table" which he also made himself. Hessian was suc- cessful enough but the cost was prohibitive. Other materials either succumbed to fractures or other faults. Then a friend at a business house made him a gift of flax waste used by transport firms for packing. Additional quantities came from other firms who want ed it "taken away." This proved ideal. With the co-operation of Messrs. Jack L...

OLD TERRITORIANS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

OLD TERRITORIANS To the old Territorians we owe all the progress that Central Australia has had. These men lived and worked the hard way, facing hardships and danger. Courage and tenacity carried them on from day to day, out amongst wild natives who rightly consider- ed they were trepassing. They fought when necessary and made friends whenever they could. Eventually the abo's ire became less and less, they found that the white man had many good things that they the abos liked, found also the white man's adaptability to help in sickness and other troubles, eventually liked him as a friend, from there they became helpers, learnt to ride and manage stock, admired the colored clothes and so like the simple children of nature they were copied to the best of their ability the white man's mannerisms. With no woman within a thou- sand miles, it was only natural that in some cases the white man did respond to affection and take as a helpmate one of the black girls. This seems awfully crude t...

THE REV. JOHN FLYNN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

THE REV. JOHN FLYNN "Flynn, of the Overland", not many but has read this book of the grand old man of the Inland, the man who made by his unceasing energy and devotion to the out- back the life more bearable, with his pedal wireless and valuable assistance of Mr. Traeger, who invented it, probably hundreds of lives were saved, the ever great fear of the expectant mother hundreds of miles away from her own kin and assistance, the actual ability to sit down and have a cosy chat with her neighbor that is probably two hundred miles away, to be able to chat with the doctor possibly 400 miles away, to get advice that spoils safety. This was one of the greatest achieve- ments in Australian history and there is little doubt that many   prayers have been offered no for this truly great and wonderful man. Prom this with the ingenious invntive power of Traeger evolv- ed the now perfect receiver and transmitter, with it one sits down and speaks easily to the Flying Doctor Service a...

LAND SETTLEMENT OF THE NORTH [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

i LAND SETTLEMENT OF THE NORTH It is pleasing to hear that the i Lands Department is opening some 'areas of grazing country in var ious parts of the Northern Terri tory. They intend to open up con siderably more and are getting them surveyed and mapped. They are designed to allow the owner to run safely 4,000 head of cattle, and further have arranged also jto sell to him one Sydney Williams J hut, also to sink for him two bores that are definitely not duds, and should they make any errors that cost shall be on the Govern ment. They are providing him with cheap transport, and have in stock for his benefit a very large quantity of wire for fencing. This is the best news that we have heard yet and the Administration has pur hearty approval and con gratulations on a most excellent effort. Just why they do not make that news public is not known and it was only by fishing around that the 'Centralian Advocate' found this out. The public should have more in formation about that sort of thin...

ADMINISTRATOR PLANS AND WORKS PROGRESS Are We Too Impatient ? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

ADMINISTRATOR PLANS AND WORKS PROGRESS Are We Too Impatient ? Today our Editor had a look at the new plan as arranged by Mr. Walker, Town Planner. The 40 allotments opened up arc on the east side of the Todd River and areas averaging from -\ acres to i acres will soon be available. There is to be an area along the bank of the Todd as a park where natural big gum treer. will be cared for and other classes of trees planted. This is all a step in the right direction, except we think in a* land of millions of acres to waste, NO allotment should be less than half an acre. Conditions of these blocks are that a certain amount of money must be spent on them in improvements within the first 12 months. That is sound but there should we think be some provision to see that as materials are impossible to get, some substantial deposit be made to justify a tenant holding it legitimately and not for the pur-' pose of reselling. There is to be a causeway across the Todd now under survey, it may be i...
