Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE' Good 'afternoon friends! Satur day morninpf cups of' tea always wei'e a rush weren't they? But now Editor has given us a Friday afternoon date, we can linger over the brew, if we wish to do so, without- having*, guilty consciences. No doubt many of you will be en joying a chat after inspecting the fine exhibition of paintings by Albert Namatjira. Maybe a few of you are the proud owners . of some of his beautifut work which so cleverly reproduces the glor ious color and unusual rock formations wtih which Nature has so generously endowed the Centre. It is interesting to know that several other aborigines from the Hermannsburg Mission are show ing much skill in this artistic way. Their interpretations of Nature vary from Albert's but much of the work they are doing is very appealing. Nature speaks* a var ious language' to those who 'hold communion with her visible forms,' so each true artis's work, whatever his medium, has its in dividuality. How ...
"AS OTHERS SEE US" [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
'AS OTHERS SEE US' Here are some extracts from an article written in Sydney by Robert Sherrod and published in the American magazine 'Life' : 'I have not found an American business man who is not frustrat ed. In socialist Australia there is very little encouragement for private enterprise. Usually there are stumbling blocks to make the business man's life miserable.' 'Business shies away from new enterprise. Everybody says ?What's the use ? It will all go in taxes anyway.' The working man does not try to produce and the business man does not care. they are all too apathetic and self satisfied.' Of the Australian girls who married Americans here is one comment : 'These girls make good wives. They do not dress as well as American girls and they gen orally are not as well educated, but they are healthier and there fore generally better looking. They are not spoiled like American women. They are willing to ac cept their share of the responsi bility for a family.' 'I understand you have ...

ADELAIDE ABATTOIRS CATTLE MARKET [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
ADELAIDE ABATTOIRS CATTLE MARKET The market on Monday from a trade point of view was a very good one, as most of fcho station cattle were in solendid order, whilst numerous drafts of pad dock-feds in good to prime condi tion were submitted. Heavy bul locks were scarce, but light and handy weights were well repres ented as were cows and heifers. The demand from the local trade, country butchers and smallgoods men was of a keen nature and an excellent sale resulted at prices in advance of last week's very satisfactory rates.

ABORIGINAL AFFAIRS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
ABORIGINAL AFFAIRS TO THE EDITOR Sir.— After reading so much in &nbsp; the papers concerning the aborig- inals of Australia and what has been done in the way of improving their way of living, and treatment, I am forced to write to the papers. I hope everyone who is interested in the welfare of the natives reads this article. None of us has ever yet ventured to write to any paper concerning this all important mat- ter regard ing ourselves. No one &nbsp; has ever come to consult us or our people. I, myself, am not a full blood, but I am a descendent of the native race, and am proud of it, as I am a returned soldier from the 1939-45 war. First I want to have a word about the natives on mission sta- tions. We think and also know &nbsp; that it is a disgrace to the native race the way they are put into these missions to stay there and die. You cannot put a native in a mission for long unless he hap- &nbsp; pens to be from that district where the misson is ...
HATCHING AN IDEA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
HATCHING AN IDEA Easy ways to fortune come read ily to the holiday voyager in the tropic waters of Australia's North. It came natural to the Wanderer lazing on deck in a glamorous, colorful northern sunset to think of the pearl shell heds and the priceless pearls over which the barge was and imagine how quick ly millionaires could be made by a few bits of unerring diving. Then the barge at that moment passed through a school of sharks; and the idea died. But another quickly tooks its place when the Wanderer went ashore and ran across three turtle's nests which gave a total of y()0 eggs. Within twenty-four hours of being robbed there were another GO eggs laid in one nest. Which recalled to the Wanderer the ancient limerick about Fertile Myrtle the Turtle. Ruminating over this with a rum and ras. 'neath the tropic moon, sometimes known as a silver orb by radio script writers down south, the Wanderer calculated the get-rich-quick potentialities of turtle farming. One turtle, on the bas...

IT'S AN ILL WIND. [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 27 September 1947
IT'S AN ILL WIND . . . It's t an ill wind that blows no body any good. Whilst we are all sorry that the Bushmans' Democratic Club was not able to accomplish its aims, supporters of the Kindergarten could not be blamed for rejoicing when this particular wind blew their way. Firstly, Mr. Heenan donated £2/12/0, portion of his refund, to Kindergarten funds, and secondly Mr. Ted Hayes, snr. sent along his refund of £102. Good work, Mr. Heenan, and you, Mr. Hayes. Some time ago, Mr. Ernie Kempe told the secretary that if four others would give .£100 each to the Kindergarten, he would do likewise. It seemed a tall order, but now that the first one has blown in, who knows ? Anyway, if there are three more good men with £100 going to waste — well, Mrs. D. Byrnes is the treasurer.
ALICE SPRINGS, N.T. 9th September, 1947. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947
ALICE SPRINGS, N.T. !)th September, 15)47. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN I was riding I'seudo in the Breeders Cup at the Meeting of the Central Australian Racing Club at Alice Springs on the 2J?rd August, 1947, and when Dneiper faltered between the three and the four furlong post my horse was running third to him. I saw Dneiper's rider, O'Callaghan pull the horse up and dismount and there is not the slightest doubt in my mind that the horse was genuinely and distinctly lame. For his own protection and in fairness to the horse I believe that Jockey O'Callaghan did the right thing in dismounting. RAY GORDON. ALICE SPRINGS, 8th September, 11)47. I was running second to Dneiper when he faltered badly and O'Cal laghan pulled him up and dis mounted. I ? have no doubt that the horse was genuinely lame, al though I did not; notice any lame ness when he returned to the sad dling paddock. As there is no insurance for jockeys here, I would have done the same as O'Callaghan and dis mounted. E. DUFFY.<...
ALICE SPRINGS, N.T. 12th September, 1947. [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947
ALICE SPRINGS, N.T. 12th September, 1047. The secretary, Central Australian Racing Club, ? ALICE SPRINGS. Dear Sir. — With considerable re juciance i nave ciecmco vo aoamion my appeal to your Committee against the fine imposed on me by the Stewards following the last race meeting. I have just been advised that my appeal suffered from the technical de ficiency of not being lodged in the manner provided by Rule 50 (a) of the Rules of Racing of The North ern Territory Racing Club, which appear to be the rules governing the matter in this case. The pity is that these rules are not gen erally known, and that persons desiring to appeal are not assisted by the Club in being advised as to proper procedure. It is high time that the rules of the Club were properly promulgated. The only other consideration that moves me in deciding to abandon the appeal is that it may be in the best interests of the Club that the matter should be closed. No other interest affects me, nnd I still regard the imp...

Hoping that you see fit to pub lish them in the near future. DON CHALMERS.
COMMUNITY CLUB Musical Evening by Faust [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947
COMMUNITY CLUB Musical Evening* by Faust Frequently heard statements to the effect that people of the pre sent day desire only jazz and the hot rvthmn tvne of music, and consider anything approaching the classcal as 'too high brow,' were forcibly disproved by remarks heard after the Community Club's entertainment of Jast Sunday evening. Music lovers of Alice Springs were given a rare treat when the Club presented a recording of Chorley's English- version of the opera 'Faust' to an audience of some 120 people in the Pioneer Theatre. Mr. R. C. Ward, the .compere, made the entertainment even more interesting by giving a brief com mentary between each record. The evening was pleasantly cool with, a very light breeze and repro duction over the theatre sound system was perfect. An amusing -interlude _ during the interval was the screening of a number of slides sketched by that able artist, Mr. IJ. C. C. llurnett, and portraying various members of the team of old 'die- hards' who had, that...
CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1947. TOWN PLANNING [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947
CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1047. TOWN PLANNING Whatever may be the outcome of the meeting of protest by Alice Springs residents in regard to the planning of the residential blocks on the East side of the Todd River and North of Undoolya Road which are supposed to be offered at public auction for leasing on 20th October, it certainly should be beneficial not only for Alice Springs, but for the whole of the Northern Territory. In effect, the plan of the blocks now to bo thrown open is the forcing of something very impracticable and expensive, by some official or offi cials who barely know the ulace. upon people whose long residence and experience here has taught them what is necessary. There were happenings on some what similar lines in 3915 or thereabouts', when the Govern ment started experimental farms at Daly River and Batchelor, and brought managers from the tem perate southern climate to take charge of those farms. The ex perience gathered by old residents was comp...
