PROGRESS ASSOCIATION MEETING HELD DISAPPOINTING ATTENDANCE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

PROGRESS ASSOCIATION MEETING HELD DISAPPOINTING ATTENDANCE After such enthusiasm during1 the past fortnig-ht of citizens of this town as to the forming of a Progress Association, it was very disappointing* to see such a small attendance, approximately 40, at the meeting held on Tuesday night at the Pioneer Theatre. No doubt the people of the east side of Alice Springs were disap pointed at not being able to attend the meeting, but once more our mighty Todd stood in the way of progress. For the people on the west side there was no excuse for not attending. It is spoken of in this town that the Government employees con trol the town and that they are disinterested in progress, and that it is time for the public- minded people to have a say in how this town should be run. Well, it may interest readers to know that out of the 40 who at tended Tuesday's meeting nearly .'JO of them were Government em ployees, and that some very sound suggestions were put forward by them. WIND-UP OF NORTHE...

DO YOU KNOW? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

DO YOU KNOW? The architect's plans for the nurses' quarters of Sydney. Hos pital were sent to London and ap proved by the world-famous Florence Nightingale. In Canberra, Federal capital of Australia, a tombstone was erected in 1845 now known as the pro phetic tombstone. At that time the country was merely open plains, but the tombstone reads : 'For here we have no continuous city, but seek one to come.' A grave in the outback country of Queensland bears the inscrip tion on a tree : 'In Memory of Matilda.' A swagman received news there that he won £25,000 in a lottery. He buried his swag and put the inscription over its grave. Old time squatter, Harry An ning (Mt. Sturgeon, Queensland), a great lover of, horses, was, by his dying wish buried in front of the stockyard sliprails where the horses would gallop over him. From outback to our back.

BUILDING PRICES Plan For Appointment of Assessors [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

BUILDING PRICES Plan For Appointment of Assessors The appointment of a number of assessor*? or valuers to fix prices for building was suggested by the building adviser to the Prices Commission (Mr. Warren McDon ald) in an address to the conven tion of the Master Builders' Federation of Australia in Pertn this week. He said that he would recommend such a plan to the Prices Commission as a measure to eliminate 'racketeering' in building. The Commonwealth Prices Commissioner (Mr. M. E. McCarthy) attended the meeting. The plan provided for the ap pointment of at least two assess ors in each municipality or road board, he said. It would be com pulsory for a client, before en tering Into any contract for build ing, to sBTimit to one of them his plans and specifications. .They would be returned within a couple of days stamped with the approv ed maximum price. By that means the client would be inform ed of the fair price for the class of house which he was proposing to build. He hoped that ...

PRICE OF ICE CREAM IN PACKETS REDUCED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

PRICE* OP ICE CREAM IN PACKETS REDUCED . — .Ui— The Commonwealth Prices Com missioner (Mr. M. E. McCarthy) has ordered a reduction in the retail price of ice cream in packets. The new prices will operate immediately. The prices have been reduced from 3 id. to 3., 7. to 0d., 1/8 to 1/0., and 2/9 to 2/0. Ice cream in cones is not affected. Mr. McCarthy said the prices had been .adjusted following the reduction in sales tax from 25 to 10 per cent, announced last week by the Prime Minister in the budget. Mr. McCarthy added that when sales tax on ice cream was in creased during the war from 10 to 25 per cent, he permitted a price increase only for ice cream in buckets, packets and other in edible containers so thafe-£Jiild.ren, who usually bought cones, would not have to pay the higher price on ice cream cones. Now that the sales tax had been reduced to the old level the old prices would J~' again operate.

SOME INTERESTING POINTS ABOUT TENNANT CREEK The township of Tennant Creek lies about seven miles south of Tennant Creek. The creek was discovered by the explorer Mc Douall Stuart in 1800. Following is an entry in his journal for Wednesday, June (-, 1S60 : ''At five miles struck a gum crook in which we found water . . . this I have named Tennant Creek after John Tennant FJsq., of Tort Lin coln.' The first warden's oflice was established in a room at the old telegraph station; on the north bank of the creek, in September, 1933, when the first rush to Ten nant Creek had begun.

SPIRALLING PRICES Federal Commissioner's Review [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

SPIRALLING PRICES . Federal Commissioner s Review ? In the last 12 months, five fac tors had been responsible for the current upward movement of prices in Australia, the Common wealth Prices Commissioner (Mr. M. E. McCarthy) said in Perth this week. Outside the Common wealth cocts and prices of raw | materials and finished goods had ? been increasing-, and we could not effeetivelytfrisulate ourselves from ?the effects 'of price spirals such as were taking place in the U.S.A., I he said. The second external in- ? fluence was the increasing1 world { price of Roods exported from ; Australia. For most of these [ 'goods domestic prices were well i ?below export prices; sometimes | they .were higher, as in the case of meat, but generally domestic prices tended to move in sympathy with export parity, even though the prices were not at the same level.
