WHAT ABOUT THAT SWIMMING POOL, ALICE ? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 13 September 1947

WHAT ABOUT THAT SWIMMING POOL. ALICE ? «— :o: — We think every one wants to see a large swimming pool at Alice Springs, yet no one is doing anything about it. The weather will soon be getting hot and a pool is the most essential amenity that any town can desire. We have the water, the sand, and in a matter of this there would be no difficulty in procuring cement. Surely we have sufficient volunteers in the town to do the necessary work ourselves. At tho same time those homes down the south side could also start a swimming pool under same conditions. A meeting should be called at once, so that we can all enjoy this summer. It would be a fav orite pastime, and swimming events could be staged. The child ren could have a swimming in structor, and at least one step of progress would be on the way. After that some one may think of a park and soats. You have heard what has been said about civic pride, then let us show peo ple we have it here, as well as lots of other progressive ways.

DANGER ! [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 13 September 1947

DANGER ! The recent heavy rains caused a small landslide at the foot of Anzac Hill, and some loose soil and rocks fell into and across the concrete drain on to Wills Ter race. A small gang ol men from tho Works Department, with a portable crane, soon loaded the heavy rocks and debris onto a truck and cleaned it up. Hut there is far more material on the hillside which may fall at any time. Two huge rocks, each probably weighing 15 tons or more are perched very precariously on other rocks about 8 or ten feet above the roadway, and no ex perienced minor would risk work ing underneath them. But child ren have no such knowledge, and even if a boy should only play on the top of one of the two great rocks his small weight may just be sufficient to precipitate the whole mass, and more under it, on to Wills Terrace below. It is hoped that the authorities will examine the place and take the necessary action.

AMERICAN IMMIGRANTS FOR AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 13 September 1947

AMERICAN IMMIGRANTS FOR AUSTRALIA A rush of applicants from poten tial immigrants has been received by Australian Government agen cies in America in the last 10 days. The visit of our Minister for Immigration, Mr. Calwell, to America, seems to have been a success, as over 1,000 Americans have applied, asking for further details. Among the numerous questions asked were those relat ing to housing shortage, cost of living in relation to wages, does the Government help us in the housing problem, trade qualifica tions, and whether the Govern ment was giving land grants. It seems that we have heard those questions asked before, and from within this country.' Surely the Government cannot answer those questions truthfully to irn- | migrants until it has done some thing for its own citizens. Australia wants- immigrants badly and there would be no doubt as to a genuine welcome. But the Government should fulfill its pro mises to our own Diggers concern ing houses and land before bring ing in t...
