WEATHER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947
WEATHER It is seldom that Alice Sprint^'. ias to complain about the cold, but the last few mornings have to us, who arc not used to it, de cidedly a change. The exceedingly severe frosts that are covering hundreds of thousands of square miles in south-west Queensland is undoubtedly the cause of the cold experienced here. Naturally we can expect more cold mornings to follow, although the sun is al ways warm at nine o'clock. We have very little to complain about.
ARE PEOPLE TO BE PENALISED FOR HAVING CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947
ARE PEOPLE TO BE PENALISED FOR HAVING CHILDREN The answer to this cjuoBtion is definitely YES. They of course, should not be. A Victoria Cross would be a small decoration for their courage, or as others will say, their want of common sense. Mi*. Caldwoll has recently given us statistics to show that the Aus tralian race will die out in 150 years unless this is remedied, and we agree heartily that it should he remedied, and quickly to. The children are our best immigrants, we want them and as many as can arrive, but first we should have Statesmen who will find the remedy not dream about it. Get onto the matter quickly, we have unlimited timber in Australia, all the clay, lime and water that is needed to make cement and tiles, we have billions of aci'es of land for build ing1 on and every part that is need ed, all but the initiative to go on with the job. Start a number of cement Avorks, if the private companies are un able to carry out this work, which of course, they can if not hamp...
PRELUDE TO OUR PUNCH AND JUDY SHOW [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947
PRELUDE TO OUR PUNCH AND JUDY SHOW Some 200 years ago was evolved the Punch and July show, probably the greatest and best play for children ever designed. Once upon a time, to use the children's formula, the world's fun we know was chiefly represented by puppet shows, tliuf: is. little figures that' are made of wood and pushed around to perform many things the grown ups did not like to do themselves, probably unlike our present day politicians, they were self conscious. With those came the shadow shows which were remarkable in that all the perform ers was done by shadows cast upon a screen of white calico which had a light -behind so you could see the performance' and yet. tho actors wore indistinguish able although you knew they must bo there. The kin^ hit of all was the Punch and July shows (that might today be portrayed on the screen as well as in actuai 1 1 f n ') . Punch and Judy aided by the in evitable policeman and other figures designed from time to time, gave an hilarious ...

ONE NIGHT OF HORROR [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947
?O*JJ2 NIGHT OF HORROR Nowadays if your go sailing along the Northern Australian coastline out from Darwin a few hundred miles, the traffic (says the Wanderer) is so thick with tourists they need cops. But there was one sea jaynt that I took a few years ago when you could go for days without people crowding out the sun. On that trip was one bad night I doubt very much whether I shall ever forget. J spent it near a forsaken mangrove swamp in a particularly wild part of the coast. It had been a blistering hot day on the foreshore of the desolate beach out from which we had an chored. The temperature r.eemed nearer 20U degrees than any other ngure. At the edge of the swamp I could «ee the most delightful shady foliajvc. A chance to rest in this paradise of coolness was eagerly .sought. Selecting a big overspread ing type of acacia, so thick that the sun was unable to penetrate it anywhere, I returned to the boat, brought back a hammock, selected some accommodating branches, fixed it an...

GETTING HIS OWN BACK [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947
GETTING HIS OWN BACK Alby, the abo had a successful morning's hunting. Returning home with a possum in one hand and some buckeroos in his belt he made for a shady tree, the only one in a long distance. To his surprise he almost stepped on a dark log which turned out to be a parentie, one of the Centre's big dragon lizards or 'inland crocodiles.' Alby dropped the possum as the 'prenty,' who has the world's worst temper, rushed at him. Alby backed away into the sun, knowing the 'prenty' would not go out in the heat ; but the prenty made for the possum. Alby in turn jabbed the prenty with a spear, l'rcnty turned from the possum to charge Alby. By those tactics Alby eventually worked the reptile further away from the possum. 'Now' cried Alby 'I race you who get possum.' The prenty won and began clawing the titbit safely back in the shade. Alby gazed in disgust. No black fellow likes to tackle the savage prenty on his own. 'Orright, you dirty old blackfella' he addressed the enemy. 'By c...

MUNICIPAL COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947
MUNICIPAL COUNCIL 'SonieT 'three weeks ago we had a .Visit from the Administrator from Darwin, he arranged a meet ing, all residents eagerly attended and we were told that we should form a Municipal Council or if we liked the name better, a Pro gressive Society. It was pointed out that a Legislative Council was designed to advance the interests of the Territory, every one beamed and smiled and waited for the rest. This came like a douse of cold water on a wintry morning. Ik appear:! that the Tei'ritory was to be divided into many areas and we would bo allowed six rep resentatives as a voting power — BUT ,and do not forget' this BUT, the Administrator was going _ to polect eight Government officials who with the Administrator hav ing the canting vote, would be NINE to our SIX.

TURNED DOWN Ventures That Could Make The Territory [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947
TURNED DOWN Ventures That Could Make | The Territory; j In our issue of May 24th we mentioned a few applications for improvement to the Territory that had been turned down or delayed by the Government. We hear now from various quarters of others who are worrying about the same problem and would be pleased if anyone who have been refused applications for some reason would send in complaints to this office. If the complaints are genuine this paper will be pleased to ventilate them and ask the Department of Interior the reason for refusal. The old Negro parson had called his flock together during a di-ought to pray for rain. Entering the pulpit, he gazed sadly upon his congregation. 'De faith of some of you is de plorable,' he began. 'Here we are gathered together to ask da Lord to send us rain, and not one of you has brought an umbrella.'
