ALICE COMMUNITY CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

ALICE COMMUNITY CLUB On Thursday the Alice Commun ity Club staged its opening night for the season. The weather was ideal, a good crowd rolled up and the evening was a success. Unfortunately the promised moving picture for the opening did not eventuate owing to non arrival of films but the Club did the next best thing and hopes the audience enjoyed Bruno in 'Bah Wilderness/' As usual community songs pre dominated, interspersed by a var iety of picture quiz slides, items and competitions. The first of these 'How to diddle the Taxation Dopartment' by Mr. O. I. Trickrr caused many laughs but left the audience without much more knowledge on the subject. A totally new item 'The Span ish Dance' expertly performed by Mrs. Fiddler jnr. received the great applause it merited. We hope to see many more appenr ances by this artist. Miss Valerie McRae's soul in spiring rendition, of 'Absent One' was received by the audience in reverent silence, except fo* a few cries of 'She's shot, through' by ...

RENEWAL OF GRAZING LICENCES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

RENEWAL OF GRAZING LICENCES Several instances have been noticed of Grazing Licensees hav ing failed to apply for renewal of their licences within the prescrib ed time. It must be clearly un derstood that the Administration will not accept any responsibility in respect of renewal of licences; if a licensee elects to apply for renewal of his licence, he must do so before the 31st July in each year. His claim will then be con sidered on its merits. If the licensee fails to make application before the prescribed time, the Administration is quite at liberty to dispose oFtfie subject land as it thinks fit. In x-ther words, the Administrator could, if he wished, dispose of land formerly contaimd in a Grazing Licence on the 1st August if the licence had not been renewed prior to that date.

GOLF CLUB NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

GOLF CLUB NOTES The long awaited gold club championships were played off last Sunday wth grand weather to helo make the day perfect. The winner of the A Grade was Mr. Les Dodd, and it is the fourth club championship he has won here and the third in, succession. He defeated Bob Tuncks comfortably with G up and 5 holes to play. On the day Dodd was more con sistent and was seldom off the fairway and proved much too ac curate for Tuncks. In the B Grade Bill McCoy, playing a much steadier game all the way than Dave Neck, was al ways a little ahead in the score and eventually ran out the win ner being 4 up and 3 to play. A very pleasant* vvening was held by members and associates at the club house after the events when the cups were awarded to the wnners.

For the Children THE STORY OF THE RICH WOMAN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

For the Children BY JULIA ANNE the' story of the rich WOMAN Once upon a time there lived a very rich lady, who was so proud of her wealth that she would not buy an article unless it was very expensive. She only bought from the very best shops because she did not want to be seen among the poorer people. One day she ordered her car riage to take her to the park, where she got out, her purpose be ing to take a stroll where all the people could see her fine clothes. Aftev a while she came upon a gypsy girl selling flowers, but when the girl named the price, the rich woman would not have them because they were so cheap. A few minutes later she came upon a fortune teller, and being very vain she decided to see what good things were in store for hex*. But the fortune teller told her that very soon she would buy a very cheap article for many times its value from a lowly person. The rich woman laughed and said, 'Fiddlesticks,' and walked away. The next time she was in the gardens she again c...

BUTTER COUPONS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

BUTTER COUPONS The Director of Rationing (Mr. J. B. dimming) states that he has received complaints that grocers were cutting the wrong butter coupons from ration cards. The current coupons wei*e 31, 32 and IVS, but in some cases the wrong strip . of coupons which include No. 34 and 37 have been cut out. Where such a mistake has oc curred the customer should im mediately contact.. the retailer an- have the mistake- rectified. Wives arc fined for nagging on an island where more than five hundred ex-cannibals are ruled by one white woman. Badu Island in the Torres Straits has the only white woman administrator in the world. The natives make their own laws. Dirtiness is a crime; a wife serving food her husband does not like or neglecting her housework is fined. After nine o'clock anyone walking abroad is arrested, for nine o'clock is-curfew. Nagging is one of the gravest crimes and a woman committing it is brought before the court and fined.

AIRCRAFT CARRIERS FOR R.A.N. Opportunities For Young Men [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

AIRCRAFT CARRIERS FOR R.A.N. Opportunities For Young Men The vital significance of the Federal Cabinet's decision to ac quire two light fleet aircraft car riers for the Itoyal Australian Navy was emphasised by Mr. Riordan, Minister for the Navy, recently. He said that not only was it a remarkably historic event for the K.A.N. itself; it was of the deepest importance to all people of the Commonwealth and to their future security and prosperity. The part taken by aircraft car riers in the Pacific war had shown how essential they were if a navy was to be an efficient and effective striking force, and it was appro priate that the Government's de cision to establish a naval air organisation had been followed by the visit of the British carriers 'Theseus' and 'Glory.' The Government was convinced that the Royal Australian Navy would not be able to perform its proper functions in the future unless carriers were included in its organisation. The people of the Common wealth would be proud to...

Mr. and Mrs. Couzens head the staff of four. In an interview, Mr. Couzens explained the pro ceedure and working of the plant as follows : — Upon arrival of clothes at the laundry a check is made as to if the customer has had previous laundry undertaken, if so his old number is marked upon his clothes, if he is a new customer, the next number is given him, and his name recorded on a card index. This insures a proper check on clothes and there is no chance of articles being mixed up with other parcels. Every article is washed separ ately before being boiled or steamed in a large washing mach ine. From this machines the clothes are -passed through an electric dryTng machine, and then allowed to thoroughly air in the sunshine. - From then the, clothes go to the ironing room where they are iron- ? ed and neatly folde...

COMMONWEALTH OF AUS TRALIA STATUTORY DECLARATION I, ALFRED LIONEL ROSE, of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia Chief Vet erinary Officer DO SOLEMNLY AND SINCERELY DECLARE : 1. On August 23rd, 1947, I was present at ' the meeting of the Central Australian Racing CJub at Alice Springs. I was watchinjt the running of a race over 9 furlongs in which 8 horses were engaged.. When the horses were about two thirds of the way around the course, a bay gelding- owned by Mr. Don Chalmers was seen to be leading by about 10 lengths. At this stage Mr. Chalmers' horse pulled up and was quickly passed by the other two. 2. Thinking that there might be something seriously wrong with the animal, I walked down the track to meet the horse as it was being led in by the jockey and accompanied by Mr. _ Tony Chis holm.

PUBLIC AUCTION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

PUBLIC AUCTION Tt is difficult to understand how any normal person having an eye for reality could even approve, Jet alone conceive, the barbaric and monstrous blunders ot the new subdivision east of the town. The only charitable conclusion is that the departmental officers re sponsible for the plan and the r conditions under which the lots -may be held had no knowledge of the realities of time, space and circumstance as they exist in Alice Springs. If any of them visited the area in connection with the preparation of the plan, surely they could not have done so with their feet on the ground. It is also difficult to understand how the Administrator ever came to give the scheme his imprimatur as it appears in the Commonwealth Gazette notice under his name, by which the public is informed that town lands are being made avail able for leasing at Alice Springs, one condition being that 'each dwelling .erected shall face the rear boundary of the lot, that is, the boundary most remote fro...
