PROPOSED SUB-DIVISION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947

PROPOSED SITB-DI VISION Sir. — 1 have read with interest the articles in your last issue on the subject of the proposed sub division of land for residential purposes on the east .side of the Todd River. T am in complete accord with the views expressed and the sug gestions offered in your paper. At the present time all sorts of money is being spent on attempts to clean up slum areas that have developed in older cities, and here we are, starting a new slum area in a new township, presumably to give our successors the fun and expense of cleaning it up in an other hundred years or so. For a slum it undoubtedly will become, nothing can prevent it. How anyone in these days of open air plannings, and the many outstanding examples of suburban development could have reverted to the bla.ck ages of Victorian in dustrialism is simply beyond com prehension. No doubt 'economy' is the only plausable excuse that t'iin be pro duced — but why economy now ? During the last few years mil lions have bee...

R.S.L. CLUB NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947

R.S.L. CLUB NOTES Of probable interest to exser vicemen in this area is an extract from the 'Back' magazine con cerning repatriation loans. The Federal Government has re fused to provide loans to ex servicemen for the purchase of I furniture. A Federal executive of the R.S.L. recently forwarded a re quest that loans of .i'100 be made available for buying furniture in approved cases. The Minister for Repatriation replied that he had considered the representations, but in view of all the circumstances had decided it inadvisable to comply with the request. On Thursday night the club committee will hold a meeting to discuss the painting, furniture and lighting of the new addition to the clubhouse. Mr. E. S. Lackman, an old digger and a friend to many in Alice, arrived here last week on a busi ness trip and called into the club to have a round or two with many of the old timers of the town. Among visitors to the club this week were Messrs. N. J. Conway, from Brisbane, R. Barker, from Ten...

BONE CHEWING AND BOTULISM OF CATTLE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947

BONE CHEWING AND BOTULISM OF CATTLE Investigations carried out by the Chief Veterinary Officer last year .showed that the bone-chewing habit of cattle was very widely distributed in njnny of the best leases of the Territory. The cause of bone-chewing- in cattle is a de ficiency of phosphatic mineral ele ments in the food, or else an excess of lime. Enquiries and in vestigations carried out in 1946 before the wet season indicated that bone-chewing was introduced in some cases by the high mineral content of sonic bore waters. It is very noticeable that cattle on surface waters remained unaffect ed. It is also noticeable that the habit of bone-chewing became more pronounced as CEe season advanced. Phosphate deficiency In cattle is quite a serious factor in de preciating growth, development and fattening propensities, but un fortunately the matter goes a good deal further, and is the direct cause of very heavy losses. The habit of bone-chewing often leads to the swallowing of a germ poi...

DO YOU KNOW ? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947

DO YOU KNOW ? «7uck Harvey, of Goondiwindi, Queensland, for a bet, sheared a sheep, killed, skinned and dressed it, cut up the carcase, cooked a chop from it, and ate it, all within uight minutes ! The Shrine of Remembrance at Melbourne, Victoria, is a unique Memorial of World War I. The dome was pierced so that at 11 a.m. of the 11th day of the Llth month (Armistice Day) a ray of sunlight shines directly on the Rock of Remembrance. Intricate mathematical and astronomical calculations by famous engineers and astronomers wore necessary to obtain this remarkable effect. The aborigines tell this legend about the tree-frogs' concert : Long ago when Australia was very voting the lagoons were infested with snakes which preyed upon the tree-frogs to such an extent that it looked as though they would be exterminated. In des peration they prayed to the gods to save them. The prayer of the little silver-and-green suppliants was granted and the gods com manded that the snakes were to live in t...

THE SNAKE GOD [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947

THE SNAKE GOD Went of the Overland Telegraph two hundred or more miles from the West Australian border lies Cockatoo Creek, just one of the innumerable watercourses of the Northern Territory that flatter their names by flowing for a few days in the big rains. Thin is the triangle . corner-stone of three tribes. Down the centuries it has become a traditional centre for important' assemblies and the corroborees that heightened great occasions. Deep in the tribal lore the story of its importance rested with the petrifying Snake God. Up until he had incurred the displeasure of the God of Gods, in whom all na tives believe, the Snake God had slithered about the country, his great' bulk, a full halt-mile long, making deep creeks where lie had dragged himself slowly, and light watercourses where he had swiftly moved his sinuous body, moun tains where he had curled up and high scarps where *he had rolled at length. Kain followed his paths because there was nothing the Snake God liked better...

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Good afternoon friends ! I hope most of you, if not all, have had an opportunity to drive or walk out in the bush lately. This is the time to go, so if you have not been, pack some lunch for this week-end and go enjoy the day. If you are driving you will miss the* small daisies, white, mauve and yellow, unless1 you happen on a place where they are massed. You will not see the bluebells either, though there are thou sands of them to gladden the heart, and 'cowslips' and wild violets, too. The latter name is the one we gave to a certain tiny purple flower when we were child ren. It grows close to the ground and each tiny part of the cluster which makes the Mower, is exactly the shape, of a sweet pea. So why 'wild violet' ? I do not know, unless the color prompted a thought of that (lower. But driv ing and walking you will see the bush at its best just now. There's a 'veil of greenness' over hill and plain, native shrubs and trees look fresh, and m...
