LEASES OF STOCK ROUTE BORES AND WATERS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
LEASES OF STOCK ROUTE BORES AND WATERS — ? ? *' ? On assuming control of the stock routes of the Northern Ter ritory in 194(5, the Chief Veterin ary Officer found that there was no fixed policy in regard to the lending atid leasing of bores and watering places along stock routes. It was found that many of the im portant Government watering places were_ being mercilessly Hogged by a'djacent lessees, and still other lessees made an annual habit of seeking the loan or lease of one or more bores when they got into difficulties in regard to water for their stock. It was fur ther found that leases had been granted in the past under differ ent conditions in regard to rental and maintenance, but that little serious attempt was ever made to ensure that leased bores were pro perly maintained. Still other lessees have come to regard some Government bores as their own property, and have been known even to refuse water to travelling stock. The Animal Industry Section now holds a register of all ...
BY HIGHWAY AND BYWAY IN NORTHERN AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
BY HIGHWAY AND BYWAY IN NORTHERN AUSTRALIA Bv 'A TERRITORY TRAMP' In this story, written by 'A Territory Tramp' in November, 1945, he says: 'This year . I had a few weeks' holiday coming to me, so after coming in to Alice Springs and loading up with supplies, I decided to do a trip to the far north. Away I went ? on my Tat Malone' this time— and although this ground I was to cover, I had been over many times previously, I could still get a 'kick' out of it. The 'wanderlust' is in my blood, and the call of of the north with its multi-colored birds and beautiful running rivers often sets me on my wanderings again.' I boiled my billy at Connor's Well, which is 00 miles out, and shortly afterwards left Aileron Hotel to the left of inc. Later on I pulled in to Ti Tree, where I had afternoon . tea. Stirling station and Barrow Creek, soon followed, then came the Taylor Crossing. After Taylor Crossing comes the Hatches Creek turn-off and to the east of here is Murray Downs, station property...

DO YOU KNOW? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
Dp YOU KNOW? The balloon fish found in the open waters around the Australian coast has a unique method of de fence. When danger approaches she comes to the surface, turns on her back and inhales air until the belly is enormously distended. ? -» o « ? v.

INCREASED PRICE OF TIN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
INCREASED PRICE OF TIN An increase in the price of tin has been approved by the Com monwealth Prices Commissioner, Mr. M. E. McCarthy, to operate from September 9. The producers price has been increased from 7C/- per ? unit to 92/- to apply to all ore booked with smelters from that date. The smelters selling price has been increased from £418 a ton to £515. Mr. McCarthy said the higher producers price had been approved mainly to cover increased costs, but it was also expected that the higher price would prove attrac tive enough to bring low grade deposits into production and assist in relieving the current shortage of tin. The higher smelters price, said Mr. McCarthy, took into account the increased costs of local metal and also landing tin, which it had been necessary to import to meet the present shortage.

BLACK COMMUNISTS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
BLACK COMMUNISTS In the House of Representatives at Canberra recently, the Minister for the Interior, the Honorable H. V. Johnson, said that reports that communism was spreading among the aborigines in the. north, and north-west of Australia, and that they were hostile to whites, were 'exaggerated and without founda tion.' With all due respect to the Hon orable Minister we consider that if Julius Caesar had invaded the north-west of Australia' instead of invading Britain at the time he did, he would probably have found that communism was one of the chief characteristics of the Northern Australian blackfellows even then, as it is today. It might be that black brother is learning a new 'whitefeller communism,' but in his native state all possessions are shared in true communal spirit. This communism of the aborigines bears the trade mark 'Made in Aus tralia,' and differs from imported varieties.
FOOTBALL PIONEERS WIN PREMIERSHIP [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
FOOTBALL PIONEERS WIN PREMIERSHIP The final name of football for this season was played on Sunday between the Federals and Pioneers for the premiership. This game had caused keen in terest during the week prior to playing and when the teams took the field on Sunday, there was little between to play favorites. The warm sunshine with very little wind and the 'largest crowd in attendance made for a splendid afternoon's sport. The game started ofF in grand style and the play was fairly fast. The Pioneers working to a clever routine gained a 9-point lead in the first quarter when the score was 2 — 1 to f- points. The second quarter again went in favor of the Pioneers, who by more accurate kicking pushed their lead ahead by 1C points. Scores being at half time 3 — !J to 5 points. Up to this stage the Federals seemed to be out of balance and their play was very patchy. Possibly the loss, through a poisoned hand, of their fast player, Les Penhall, had some thing to do with this. After the h...
MR. CHIFLEY'S BUDGET SPEECH "EMPLOYMENT AT RECORD LEVEL" [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
MR. CHIFLEY'S BUDGET SPEECH 'EMPLOYMENT AT RECORD LEVEL' In his seventh Budget, presented in- the House of Representatives at Canberra, on September 19, the Prime Minister reports record peacetime employment (almost half a million above the 1939 level), important industrial expansion and substantial progress in housing. It is most satisfactory to record that, during the financial year just closed, employment in Australia, rose to levels never before reached in peacetime, Mr. Chifley says. At the end of June this year the number of people in civilian work was 3,212,000. This was 200,000 above the figure in June, 194G, and 480,000 above June, 1939. Better seasons and higher prices, especially for wool and wheat, led to an increase during the year in the incomes of primary producers. Output rose in most of the basic secondary industries and there was a marked expansion of new manu facturing enterprises. Housing made substantial progress, though hampered by shortages of labor and materi...
