WHAT ALICE SPRINGS SHOULD HAVE URGENT NEED FOR DECENT CAUSEWAY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

WHAT ALICE SPRINGS SHOULD HAVE URGENT NEED FOR DECENT CAUSEWAY The town of Alice Springs is in need of a properly constructed causeway to bring together in the rainy season the East and the West side of the town. Every time we have heavy rains here we nave floods, and when we have floods the Todd River comes down and separates the East side of the town from the West side, and each time the temporary cause way is washed away, making it impossible to cross from either side. This paper has advocated often enough on thia problem, but ap parently words are not enough, so to make the situation a little clearer we are publishing what the river looks like in flood and what could be done to improve thia situation. A few weeks back we had un expected rains which brought the Todd River down suddenly. It will be remembered too, that an accident was narrowly averted only by quick thinking citizens, to people trying to cross the stream whilst in flood. If a pro perly constructed causeway had been...

R.A.N. CARRIERS WILL LEAVE BRITAIN AS COMPLETE FIGHTING UNITS Will Be Manned By Australian Officers And Ratings [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

R.A.N. CARRIERS WILL LEAVE BRITAIN AS COM PLETE FIGHTING UNITS Will Be Manned By Austra lian Officers And Rulings When the first of the two light fleet aircraft carriers that are to be acquired by the Commonwealth Government leaves BriXain next year it will carry a full comple ment of officers and men and be a completely equipped fighting unit. Except for specialists in par ticular branches associated with the carrier's work — who will be officers and men of the Royal Navy — the ship's side of the comple ment will consist entirely of Royal Australian Navy personnel, many of whom are now being recruited. The Commanding Officer of the carrier, who will be a Captain R.A.N. will go to England several months before the vessel leaves to supervise her commissioning. He will be followed later by his offi cers and about 700 ratings. Senior officers of the air com ponent of the carrier will be offi cei*s of the Royal Navy, but it is probable that most of the junior officers, including pilots ...

DO YOU KNOW? The Nail-tail Wallaby has a nail growing out of the tip of its tail as strong as a tiger's claw'. This wallabv is found only on a very rocky group of islands off the north-west coast of Australia. The nail is of great service to the wallaby in the rocky mountainous country. * -:i ?? i?

RESULTS OF SUNDAY'S FOOTBRAWL VETERANS DOWN COMBINED TEAM [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

Results of sundavs footbrawl VETERANS DOWN COMBINED TEAM As forecast, the football match between the Veterans and the Combined Association team on Sunday turned out to be a jrrand jrame. A largo crowd witnessed the Kanic and showed their apprecia tion of the match by making' the collection of record figure of ap proximately £20. A clear profit also of £G was made at the cool drink stall, and these two figures combined made it a great effort towards the 'Miss Northern Territory' Fund. The game had a colorful begin ning with Miss Daphne Campbell to bounce the ball, then the um piring was immediately taken over by Doug Williams. The game, if not particularly fast, had its lively moments, and some rather spectacular play was t seen on the field. It also appeared at times that the umpire was pen alising the combined team as free kicks were rarely given to that side. The veterans played with such enthusiasm that at half-time it was 'a forgone conclusion as to the result. With Sam Caldei k...

PRICES OF SHIRTS AND PYJAMAS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

PRICES OF SHIRTS AND PYJAMAS A new prices order covering the manufacture and sales of shirts was issued recently by the Acting Commonwealth Prices Commis sioner (Mr. H. 13. Bishon). It would not alter retail prices to any great extent, said Mr. liishop, but. would result in less disparity of prices and regulate conditions that had existed in the trade owing to the fact that formerly there had been no specific order covering this indus try. Tho order adjusted percentage margins to allow for increased costs of materials and labor. The issue of this order is- in accord ance with the branch's policy of revising orders covering all sec tions of the clothing trade and developing a new simplified system that would be beneficial both to the trade and the consumer. Formerly most types of apparel were covered by a general cloth ing order, but the present policy aimed at separating distinct types by specific orders. This work of revision was now almost complete. Today's order provides that tra...

MANNEQUIN PARADE Alice Springs Girls At Their Best Tuesday night at the Catholic Hall was a big event in the lives ol our local lasses. To aid the 'Miss Northern Ter ritory' campaign, some of the local girls with the co-operation of the stores which could provide material for such an event, made a grand success of the first man nequin parade held in Alice Springs. With Miss M. Renny as the organiser, and plenty of willing assistance to help provide a suit able stage, lighting and back ground, the show could have been nothing but a success. Some of our prettiest girls were seen as mannequins, and with the assistance of Mrs. C. Johnston as their special hairdresser, they looked very glamorous indeed. A children's mannequin parade was also held during the evening and with some of our notable men folk acting as French mannequins, a touch of comedy was added to the show. Suitable music was provided and with Mrs. J. Gorey and Mr. D. Ward at the microphone, the parades went through smoothl...

'MR.

Bell. Apparently Mr. Chifley has too much to think about, these days beside his mail. The following is the extract : REGISTERED MAIL Refusal Of Letter Addressed To Prime Minister Mr. ARCHIE CAMERON.— I have in my possession a registered letter addressed to the Prime Min ister and sent to him from Alice Springs by Mr. N. C. Boll. The Prime Minister refused delivery of the letter. I should like to know from the right honorable gentleman whether it is custom ary for him to refuse the accept ance of registered mail addressed to him. If it is not, can he tell me why he refused delivery of the letter, which was sent back to the sender ? Mr. CHIFLEY.— I do not know all the circumstances referred to by the honorable member, but I did hear that a registered letter came from the post office ...

THE WARATAH AN ABORIGINAL LEGEND [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

THE WARATAII AN AHORIGINAL LEGEND Long years ago there lived a beautiful aboriginal girl called Krubi. She made for herself a cloak of the red skin of the rock wallaby and had it ornamented with the still brighter crests of the Gang-Gang cockatoo. Krubi loved a young and hand some warrior and every day, from a cleft between two great sand stone rocks, she would watch for his return from the hunt. As the tribe of hunters returned the red figure was the first object to strike their eyes. The young 'man, Cam oola, looked for that cloak alone and would run to greet his beloved. But one day Kioibi's heart was filled with sorrow for as she stood on the ridge she heard, from afar the fierce cries of battle and oc casionally glimpsed the sight of swaying crowds of warriors. At dusk she watched for their return, but no young figure stepped out eagerly from the victors to greet her. For days she stayed there waiting and hoping, and then in her sorrow she willed herself to die with the power t...
