Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 13 September 1947

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Last week Sue's column was missed from these pages. Here is her explanation : — Maybe Sue went fishing, Mavbe she was ill. 'Maybe she was stranded By floods, upon a hill. Maybe in a bog she sat With nothing much to cut, A blunted pencil in her hand And water round her feet ! Perhaps Sue flew away To greener pastures new, Then found them sadly lacking And not so bright of hue. But now dear Kd. I must admit It was no happy spree, That kept Sue from a pleasant chat With friends, at cup-of-tea. Good morning to you all ! And that includes you 'Felicity Anne' with a 'thank you' for your let ter. I am quite sure our other cup-of-tea friends will enjoy it because it has a few pithy points that are worth some thought. 'Dear Sue, What a mysterious woman you are ! 1 have speculated many a time, while the billy boils, as to your real identity; as yet T have not found a satisfactory answer, but to console my insatiable curiosity I have decided that at least ...

Today we are a prosperous and a vigorous growing town, with up-to-date buildings, well stocked stores, and many beautiful .homes. When the yards were first built in its present position, there were probably not half a dozen white women in the town, and as there was little traffic, not much dust, i and those women were ? of the pioneer breed that ' do riot com plain, but .just strive to forward the needs of a town that now is a credit to the Centre. Times have changed, instead of a few lots of cattle coming inter mittently to Alice, we now see t...

40-HOUR WEEK GRANTED JUDGES' DECISION UNANIMOUS This week the Arbitration Court announced that the 40-hour week had been granted and that it would come into opei'ation from the first pay period in January, 1JMS. . This was the unanimous decision of three judges — Drake- Brockman, Foster and Superman. This decision will affect at least one and a half million workers, and comprise nearly all the organ isations .registei'ed under the Com monwealth Conciliation and Arbi tration Act.. Other organisations that have not appealed for the 40-hour week, can of coui'se, lodge their applications. Many problems will arise from this new award. There will have to be a certain amount of flexibil ity to gradually mm out these problems. In the judgment, which was published ' by Judge Foster, the date fixed for the introduction of the 40-hour week would give about three months to make the final adjustments to the many awards and to industry itself. To arrive at their decision on the 40-hour week, the ...

SWAN SONG OF THE "SOUTHERN CROSS" [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 13 September 1947

SWAN SONG OF THE "SOUTHERN CROSS" The wanderer in his many travels had the pleasure of having the last ride in Kingsford Smith's old Southern Cross, before it was taken to the museum at Sydney. At the Granites a rich leader had been struck which produced £5,000 in two weeks with only four men, and the Wanderer decided once more he must go on the   walkabout, consequently packed up, came to Alice Springs. First undecided where to go, then thought down south might be a good place in which to spend a hectic holiday. So getting a pick- ed berth and a convivial friend, he meandered off. On the way down he met some- one who had a big lump of meteorite and in a subsequent deal became the possessor of same. It was not too big, but weighed about 55 lbs., and with approximately another 56 lb. of picked specimen stone shot with gold, he was well loaded. The porter at the railway station who offered to take the port over to the hotel, gasped when he at- tempted to pick the luggage ...

THE LEGEND OF THE NORTH-WEST [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947

^THE LEGEND OF THE 1 NORTH-WEST 13 Y THE WANDERER They look like men sprawled in the grotesque attitudes of violent death. Rising above the limit less desert plain these strange granite masses, .'170 miles north west of Alice Springs, known as The Granites naturally lend them selves to legend. The natives will not discuss them, but they know the story. Here it is : — All day long 'King' Hullaballoo with his Chief Tuggamurra had been sitting on top of the iron stone ridge that overlooked the terrain of his tribe. From this vantage point he could see in every direction when smoke sig nals arose, when the rains began to come their way, when the game was about, and above all, when threat of enemy intrusion was imminent^ For more years than their old est Tuggamurras could remember, or was inscribed in the most an cient message sticks of the tribal (? archives, this had been the home ?'? of the Mungarra tribe. Their kingdom stretched away on all sides for a distance of 150 miles. Now, as ...

MARANBOY TIN FIELD Beswick Creek Water Supply [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947

MARANBOY TIN FIELD Beswick Creek Water Supply The inadequacy of the Springs water supply, situated one mile north-westerly from the Maranboy Government Battery, particularly in view of the present accumula tion of ore at grass and the poten tialities of this extensive field, focussed attention on the possibil ities of obtaining supplies from Beswick Creek which was con nected by pipeline to the Maran boy Mining Company's battery some years ago. Beswick Creek runs into a gorge five miles easterly from the Gov ernment Battery, where there is a lagoon of permanent water about half a mile long, thirty feet deep in places and with an average width between thirty and fifty feet. The crest of the gorge or 'jump-up' rises about 100 feet from the waterhole from whence the site of the old pipeline travers es fairly flat to gently xindulating country over which it has ' been decided to construct a new pipe line to the Government Battery. Tenders have now been called by the Department of Works ...
