IS INSURANCE TO BE NATIONALISED ? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947
IS INSURANCE TO BE NATIONALISED ? Interest is now being shown as to whether this Government of ours is going to nationalise insur ance as well as banking, or shall it be said, attempt to nationalise the above. A statement recently at Laun ceston by the Minister for Re patriation (Mr. Barnai-d) has giv en some concern as to the Gov ernment's next step. When approached by managers of private banks in Launceston, who handed the Minister for Re patriation a petition of protest signed by 2,787 Rass electors, he said he did not think the banking measure would necessarily mean the first step in general socialisa tion. When asked about insurance companies he replied 'They might be the subject of discussion later, some of the Members are talking about it.' Mr. Harnard said he proposed to stand by the Cabinet's decision. These statements on the future of insurance companies may even tually prove embarrassing to Mr. Chifley.
CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, SEPTEM, 20, 1947. THE DOLLAR CRISIS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947
CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, SEPTEM. 20, 1947. THE DOLLAR CRISIS We in Australia are just be ginning to know what the dollar crisis means. It sounded as first' as something so far away that we had nothing to worry about, but what goes up must come down, is still a practical theory, and our money has gone up and away in a thousand different ways, in heavy and extravagant expendi ture, high wages, high costs, im ports of unnecessary lines, unlim ited borrowings, and now at last, as must be expected, the bird is coming home to roost. The out side world does not value our money which they probably say they can print themselves. Each country wants goods, wool, wheat, butter, flour, beef, iron and other metals, and all the things we grow or mine and insist that all be paid in gold, or other negotiable goods. Well, to put it clearly, we have not got the gold, the penny wise, pound foolish scheme of getting this at half rates has shifted^ many hundreds of men into other better propositions...
ILLEGAL EXPORT OF GOLD [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947
ILLEGAL EXPORT OF GOLD From Sydney comes the news that gold valued at £25,000 has allegedly- been flown over to the East by members of crews of aii' ci-aft flying between Australia and India, Singapore arid Karachi. ; In a case before the Special Federal Court in Sydney, Thomas Arrowsmith, of King's Cross, a manufacturer, also described as an importer and exporter, pleaded not guilty to a charge of having between May 28 and August 81 this year conspired in Sydney with other people to send gold out of Australia without the consent of the Commonwealth Bank. The bulk of the gold had allegedly been sold at the price of £30 an ounce on the black markets in Karachi. It will take long and extensive enquiries before this case is com pleted and no doubt many others will be charged. Mr. Arrowsmith has been re manded on £800 bail.

WANDERING BY RANGES AND GORGES IN THE CENTRE CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEK [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947
WANDERING BY RANGES AND GORGES IN THE CENTRE ??'?? ' ? Bv 'A TERRITORY TRAMP.' CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEK Not sc long ago we had the pleasure of hearing from an old Territoriaii. who has wandered over moat parts of the Territory, and consequently knows quite a lot about this State. He has written several articles on his travels, some of which have been published in other magazines. We have this week one of his earlier stories (November, 1945), which will help to introduce our friend, and so let you follow his travels from the beginning. OLD MINES We soon had the billy boiling hero, and after a quick lunch we walked over the 'relics' and viewed with amazement the heavy machinery which had been trans ported from the railhead at Ood nadatta by camel team and horse waffKons. This would be a dis tance of about ;35() miles. After wards we paid a visit to what is known as the White Range, about seven miles distant. It was from there that most of the gold was mined during .the workings of the...
DON BRADMAN ON SELECTION COMMITTEE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947
DON BRADMAN ON, SELECTION COMMITTEE The appointment of Don Brad- man, together with Messrs. E. A. Dwyer (N.S.W.) and J. S. Ryder (Victoria) to the selection board does not come to many of the pub- lic as a surprise. The selection committee is for the purpose of choosing the Aus- tralian team to tour Britain next year. These three men have also been appointed as selectors for the Tests against India this sea- son. Don Bradman's acceptance of this appointment is regarded as a good indication that he may also make the tour as a player.
SUCCESSFUL GYMKHANA AIDS MISS NORTHERN TERRITORY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947
SUCCESSFUL GYMKHANA AIDS MISS NORTHERN TERRITORY On Saturday afternoon at the Alice Springs race course, the Ion '--a waited gymkhana was held. Due to rain the previous week-end, it had been postponed, and many thought that this may cause it to be a failure, but by spirited organisation, the gymkhana was a smashing success. The afternoon was a perfect sunny one, and a very large crowd attended arrayed in their best and prepared to assist in making it an enjoyable day. Much credit is due to the organ isers as everything went oil to schedule. There was fun, excite ment and refreshments to suit all individual tastes. The horse races were not only a. grand success, but gave the public the opportunity of seeing just what an amateur race meet ing could be like. By buying at the auction a station horse prac tically everyone could have their horse running in a race, and with bookmakers and total isator in full swing, money could be made or lost, as easily as at a professional meeting. The p...
Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947
Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Good morning friends ! Cup of tea this morning is served for mothers and those interested in children — but putting the cups and saucers out .1 realised that that would probably include everyone! This week 1 have been reading a book by Beatrix Tudor Hart (Principal, Fortis Green School) illustrated by Ei'gy Landau, with a foreword by Susan Isaacs, and titled 'Play and Toys in Nursery Years.' I have read many books on children, child psychology, child training, etc., but there is no other I could recommend so highly as this. The days have gone, I think, when pai*ents as sume that nature bestows upon them, with parenthood, the wis dom to guide their children with out some preparation for 'the most important job in life.' It is a fact that some people, male and female, have a natural aptitude with children, while others know, and admit, their inability to cope with the growing child. This book will be read with interest and enjoyment by those who h...

A leap of 804 inches was made recently'1 by an 'did man' kangaroo recently in Victoria. *'i IK lU fit Captain Irvine, an extremely wealthy settler of the Camden (New South Wales) district in the early days, gave his bride as a marriage portion her weight in gold. iji -:- v -i- The malice fowl lives without water.

ALBERT NAMATJIRA Alice Springs Exhibition [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947
ALBERT NAMATJIRA Alice Springs Exhibition Albert Namatjira, a full blood of the Arunta tribe, is the first Australian aborigine to win world recognition in a white man's art. Born and reared on the Her- mannsburg Mission Station, he has had the advantages of education provided at the mission school whilst still living in the atmos- phere of tribal life. His own life is far enough removed from white civilisation to be predomin- ently native in culture. The con- tinuance of such customs as "walk-about" have kept him with- in the tribe whilst he has the power to express the culture of the aborigine in the white man's medium. Gifted as he is he could not have achieved the fame he enjoys without the work and in- fluence of Hermannsburg Mission, and the encouragement of the Central Australian white artist, Mr. Rex Batterbee. Albert's first exhibition was held in Melbourne in 1938, when all his 41 paintings were quickly sold. Again in 1939 he sent an- other exhibition to Adelaide and recor...
INDONESIA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947
INDONESIA In a statement this week by the Indonesian Premier (Dr. Sjarifudder) he pointed out that the Indonesian dispute could still be settled with a free and inde- pendant Republic of Indonesia re- maining within the Netherlands Commonwealth. He also attached much import ance to the Three-Nation &nbsp; Commission, and showed his prefer- ence to this body, rather than to the consular's commissions investi gation of the cease fire. The republic would be very happy indeed if either the United Kingdom or United States were elected as the third member of the commission by the nominees, Belgium and Australia.

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, SEPTEM. 27, 1947. BANKING IN THE NORTHERN TERRITORY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, SEPTEM. 27, 1047. BANKING IN THE NORTHERN TERRITORY Now that it is the Prime Min ister's endeavour to bring about the nationalisation of banking-, it seems opportune to look back over the years and see what the various banks, operating in the Northern Territory have done to help the people individually and to help Territory development generally. The town of Darwin — as it is now known — had its beginnings in the years of the construction of the Overland Telegraph Line, in the years 18G9 to 1872. The town ship was then known as Palmer ston, and the port was known as Port Darwin, and those two names were used until the Northern Ter ritory was handed over by South Australia to the Commonwealth Government in 1909-1911. During the construction of the Overland Telegraph Line, and for 14 years after, it was horse transport right through from Palmerston — or from Southport across the harbor — right through to the then head of the railway in South Australia, an...
ERECTION OR REPAIR OF BUILDINGS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
ERECTION OR REPAIR OF BUILDINGS Interest taken in the general ap pearance of the township is evi denced from Tennant Creek where the local District Association is doing its utmost to improve the appearance of the town. During the war years buildings or struc tui'es of unsightly appearance sprang up in various parts of the Northern Territory and were used as required. The further construction of such buildings is undesirable and con trary to existing building regula tions. For general information it is advised that the construction of or additions to buildings within Health areas throughout the Northern Territory is subject to the provisions of the 'Regulations under the Buildings Ordinance 193(J.' This regulation provides that any builder who proposes to erect any building, or to alter the structure of any building, or to add to or extend any. ..building,; shall, before commencing to do so, make application in writing to the Chief Medical Officer for approval of the plans, sections ...
NATIONALISATION ! How It Works In The Argentine [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
NATIONALISATION ! — :o: — How It Works In The Argentine An article condensed from the 'Saturday Evening Post' in the August issue of the 'Reader's Digest' shows with startling clearness how the nationalisation of banking is working in the Argentine under totalitarian con trol. The following extract speaks for itself : Just before leaving office in June, 194G, Peron's puppet, Pre sident General Edelmiro Farrell, issued a decree which made every Argentine bank merely an agent of a nationalised Central Bank, and enabled the latter to seize every bank deposit. Each bank had to get government . approval of its individual loans. Peron had Congress approve this decree and gave Miguel Miranda, head of the Central Bank, a free hand. Suppose you are a businessman who normally gets a seasonal loan. If you are politically in line, Mr. Miranda can order your bank to make money available to you. On the other hand, when the Buenos Aires opposition newspaper 'Critica' applied for a loan the Leader'...
