CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1947. PROGRESS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947
CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1947. PROGRESS Next week at a public meeting we hope to see the formation of a very useful body of citzens, name ly, a town civic committee. It has been something this town sadly lacked in the past, but now that the opportunity presents it self to the citizens of this town, it should be grasped with both hands. Our good friend the Administra tor, has more than once suggested wo form this committee or a similar one, but nothing \as been done for some unknown reason. This body, if picked carefully can, and will make this town some thing really to be proud of. The Government Departments have done much to put this town on its feet and to make it the attractive place it is, and they can do more yet to improve it by building decent causeways, and doing something to stop the dust storms from the stockyards but, the citizens of this town too, can help themselves and others. They cannot expect to be waited on hand and foot all the time. In other town...

NOMENCLATURE NORTHERN TERRITORY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947
NOMENCLATURES NORTHERN TERRITORY Enquiries regarding the correct spelling and origin of place names in the Northern Territory are constantly being dealt with by the Administration in addition to the necessity of finding new names for public places. The Nonienclature (Public Places) Ordinance 11)45 provides that there shall be a Nomencla ture to be adopted for public places which are defined as 'nat- ural features of the Territory and and avenue, road, street or place which the public is entitled to use.' The Stuart Highway was named after McDouall Stuart, the noted explorer who crossed the Contin ent in 1S03. The Barkly Highway betweon the Stuart Highway near Tennant Creek and Mount Isa was named after consultation with the Queensland Government. This highway being in close proximity to the Barkly Tableland was i:amcd after that feature. Regarding the correct spelling of place names, the committee rely on early records in the Survey Office. These comprise field books dating back to ...

ALICE COMMUNITY CLUB . Last Thursday saw a really large crowd at the Community Singing when an extra bright pro gramme was presented. The hidden names quiz for adults was won by Roger Gibbons. Lucky seats were apparently un- 1 popular as nobody was stting in them, and the prize went to Miss Hetty White who was in the near est seat to the lucky one.

POLITICIANS AND THEIR PENSIONS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947
POLITICIANS AND THEIR PENSIONS before the present Federal ses sions end in November, the Labor caucus plan to discuss the provi sion of pensions for defeated and retiring Federal members. The 'caucus amenities committee has already made a preliminary examination of the proposal and will in all probability begin to di'aft a recommendation next month. A contributory scheme if es tablished to provide £7 or £8 a week for the defeated or i-etinng members after they had served two sessions, or six years in par liament, would apparently be quite acceptable according to all reports gathered from Labor members. Incidentally this scheme would also cover Senators who served a single term of six years. The taxpayer will, of course, gallantly do his bit to help this effort.
BATTLE OF THE LONDON LINE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947
BATTLE OF THE LONDON LINE From London comes the story of how the famous designer, Mme. Schiaparelli, attacked the critics of her 'longer skirt' campaign — and gave some new points to her campaign. The following are some of her reasons why women should wear dresses longer : — Women need femininity and ele gance for the sake of their souls and morale. No woman over the age of 16 years should show the ugly backs of her knees. The most attractive women's dress in the world in the Chinese. The best fashion periods were the Edwardian and the Victorian. Mme. Schaparelli also stresses that dress should never be ex treme nor conspicuous. She has very strong views against slacks and two-piece bathing suits. She considers that Australians are fashion conscious with a French taste in dressing.

CALL FOR CO-OPERATION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947
A CALL FOR COOPERA TION For almost three years the Aus tralian Women's Digest has faith fully fulfilled the purpose for which it was designed. The hand ful of people responsible for its inception knew that there were women here in Australia who could not recognise the yardstick with which editors of current women's magazines gauged their intelli gence and who were dissatisfied with the results of such calcula tions. During the war years, women served their apprenticeship. They displayed a high intelligence and shouldered grave responsibilities in every field — domestic, indus trial, professional and military. When the need for that work was ended, many rebelled against re turning to the old grooves, against being re-labelled with the old tickets, against losing the right to livjfl, and to obtain, responsible positions. The Australian Women's Digest went into publi cation, therefore, to establish a link which would be the means of uniting these women who held similar hopes, ideals, a...
LAVENDER LANE GOVERNMENT PLANS ON THE NOSE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947
LAVENDER LANE GOVERNMENT PLANS ON THE NOSE A firm stand taken by the citizens of Alice Springs last week at a public meeting, when they . threatened to boycott rather than attend the coming public auction in regard to the auction . eering of unsuitable lots for leasing at Alice' Springs, has, it seems brought results. ! These lots for leasing on the east side of the T.odd River were to be auctioned on October 20. But when the plans became available to the public, it could easily be seen that they were drawn up in a manner that did not encourage- civic pride and gave the idea that this part of the town hud to be jammed into a cramped area and that it would eventually become a slum area. Now, thanks to the townspeople's effort and the co-operation of the Administrator of the Northern Territory, by postponing the auction indefinitely until all aspects of this affair were investigated this town still has a chance to get what it badly wants — decent blocks of land to build on. The above ...
Proposed Progress Association Receives Set-back! Platform refused to Rev. H. Griffiths [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947
Proposed Progress Association \ Receives Set-back ! \ Platform refused to Rev. H. Griffiths Thursday night's Community [ Club show had its most startling beginning since coming into ope ration and the first black mark put against its record. As most people know or saw ad vertised on the screen early this week, that it was proposed that Rev. II. Griffiths should address the audence briefly on the subject of forming a progress body of some nature, which was to be followed up by another public meeting next week when this mat ter could be thrashed out thor oughly and a committee be elected from the various organisations in the town and, of course, the gen eral public. llev. H. Griffiths' address was to take place just before the Com munity Club programme started. When Rev. Griffiths walked onto the stage he was warmly welcomed by the audience. But he was im mediately approached by the Presi dent of the Community Club who stated that one member of the committee had lodged an objec tion s...
ALICE SPRINGS DRAMATIC SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947
ALICE SPRINGS DRAMATIC SOCIETY ? -iUi— On Friday, October HI, the Alice Springs Dramatic Society will present its first performance of a three-act comedy, 'As You Know.' This society has only recently been established but its members ,'^ro enthusiastic and ambitious enough to hope that, should this play be well received, they will be able in future to present at regular intervals, the best of the playa showing in the capital cities, which the people of Alice Springs^ would not normally see. All proceeds from these per formances, except costs, will be donated to local charities. The forthcoming production pro coeds will be donated to the A.I.M., Kindergarten, and Church of Kng land Hostel. The society is in debted to both the A.I.M. and Church of England for the use of their halls for club meetings and rehearsals. Other local charities will be solecled to benefit from future productions. The play which will have a run ning time of three hours and a .?tint of over twenty is a brillian...
PROPOSED CIVIC BODY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947
PROPOSED CIVIC BODY — ;u;— A public meeting held in the Court House on Monday, October 6 was thrown open for general discussion and as a result a com mittee of five — Messrs. R. C. Ward, W. McCoy, H. Fromm, G. A. Johannsen and Rev. Griffiths — was appointed to convene a meeting with a view to forming some sort of civic body such as a Progress Association. It has now been ad vised that this meeting will be held at the Pioneer Theatre on Thursday,. October 10 in conjunc tion with the Community Club. Speakers were unanimous in the view that some such body should be formed in the interests of the townspeople. The present method of leaving everything to public minded citizens to call a meeting when some matter of importance has to be discussed is most .un satisfactory. It will be far better to have a representative from each section of the community who will be able to place the needs or suggestions of his (or her) organ isation before a small committee ?who can in turn take the necessar...

Ltd. on Ardrossan gold mine deposits, said tho Chief Secretary (Mr. McEwin) in the Legislative Council. The Mines Department had bcaxyf asked to drill five more boreholes at the company's expense.
