The Children's Christmas Tree Fund will benefit from the proceeds. Prize winners were as follows : Best dressed couple — Mary and Michael Staunton (bride* and groom); most numerous couple — Denis Staunton and Maurice Mill (two warriors); most original couple — June and Rex Morris (Vic torian couple).

EXTRACTS FROM AN ADDRESS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

EXTRACTS FROM A^ ADDRESS The following are extracts from an address delivered recently by the Common wealth Prices Commissioner (Mr. M. E. McCarthy) to the Association of Accountants of AiiHtralia in Sydney. 'A good deal of nonsense has been talked about overall control. It has been called profit control with the suggestion that it is some new feature introduced into price control. The device I have men tioned has been operating success fully for the last eight years and has given general satisfaction. The best test of its acceptability is this :— 'If there is any trading organ isation in the Commonwealth ope rating under a scheme of overall control which feels that its ope rations are being hampered by ovei'all control and that it^ could do better under a scheme of pi'ice fixing for individual lines I am quite willing to make the change. Nothing- could be fairer than this offer which, I may say, is not new. Whenever a scheme of overall con trol is adopted the trader is ad vised tha...

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1947. HISTORY IN THE MAKING [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1947. HISTORY IN THE MAKING — . u.— The action fo a few members of the Victorian Legislative Coun cil in forcing a dissolution of the Victorian Parliament through re fusing to pass the Supply Hill, has certainly been successful up to-date, whatever other effects may follow. The reason for the action was the belief of those few members of the Victorian Parliament that the question of the nationalisation of banking, a Bill for which is shortly to be brought up in the Federal Parliament, should be re ferred to the people of Australia by referendum, and as they — the members of the Victorian Legisla tive Council — cannot directly help in the bringing about of the de sired referendum on banking, they can, at least, allow the people of Victoria to express their views by making the nationalisation of banking a major issue in the Vic torian elections soon to be held. Within -the past few days Sir Isaac Isaacs, formerly Chief Jus tice of the High Cou...

TO THE EDITOR ABORIGINAL AFFAIRS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

TO THE EDITOR — :o: — ABORIGINAL AFFAIRS Sir.— The outburst by 'Ex SX Returned Solder' in the 'Centra- lian Advocate' of 27/9/47, is triple tragedy. Firstly, because it proves the confusion facing a half-caste with ambition to better himself. Secondly, because I know this man, and had the privil ege some weeks ago of dining at his table, and listening in all fair ness to his remarks which were almost exactly as printed. His struggle to improve himself has been handicapped again and again by circumstances over which he has little control; and like some half-castes who have inherited some of the ambitions and hopes of the white race, he resents bitter ly the pin-pricks of today's social order. Some of these pin-pricks are very real and the result of snobbishness which is prone to condemn the result of union be tween a native woman and a white man; Tather than to search deeper into the problem and recognise and combat the human weakness I of white man, and selfishness of a few white wo...

For the Children THE BEAR WHO PLAYED SOLDIERS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

For the Children THE BEAK WHO PLAYED SOLDI ERS Once a man had a tame bear, which he took from place to place. The bear could march and throw Jtialls and dance. He was so big 'and black that he looked very fierce, but really he was kind and gentle. One night the man went to an inn to eat his supper; the bear was tied up outside, behind the wood pile. The inn-keeper had three little children. The eldest was six years old, the next was four, and the baby was two. They were play ing soldiers up in the garret. Suddenly they heard a noise — tramp, tramp ! tramp, tramp ! tramp, tramp ! Some one was coming upstairs. Who was it ? The door opened, and the great shaggy bear came in. He had grown tired of waiting down in the courtyard, and had broken his rope and found his way up the stairs. The children were so frightened at first that they hid in the corn ers of the room. The big bear went to them, and snuffed at them, but he did not hurt them. 'This must be a great dog,' they said, and began...

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

Women's Column CUP OP TEA CHAT BY SUE 'Morning everyone ! Having a chat with you is a diversion from the sewing' busy-bee which takes every spare moment I have these days. I suppose many of you are occupied as I am, making and renovating summer clothes before the very hot days are upon us. No doubt many are preparing clothes for 'going South' to en joy a breath of 'salt-sea breezes' and to find pleasure in a few weeks of city life. For relaxation one day this week I turned to the 'small ads.' of a daily paper. Those columns often have items full of interest, but none tells so sad a story as that in which the homeless seek a home, a room, or . temporary shelter. The number of these ads. seems not to decrease. I wonder how many years it will be before every family' has a roof to call its own. We heard so much of housing schemes, prefabricated homes, and easy-to-erect build ings, but there is evidently a very real and urgent need for a general speeding up. Practically every country in ...

TO THE EDITOR PRICE OF METALS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 18 October 1947

TO THE EDITOR PRICE OF METALS Sir. — Whilst the rather wonder ful range of news in your columns is appreciated, I feel that there ia just one item that we of the outback could do with, and that . is a weekly or fortnightly few words on the ruling price of var ious metals such as wolfram, mica, tin, gold, etc. If this was done the people of Tennartft Creek, Wauchope, Hatches Creek and the mica fields would quote 'The Cen tral ian Advocate' as their author ity for information passed on to Tom, Dick and Harry in the course of their evening chat. JOHN C. LOVEGROVE. [We find through extensive en quiries that it would be very hard indeed to arrive at a ruling price for some metals, as the market is not only fluctuating daily, but that some of the metals such as mica, wolfram and tin are judged on percentage rates.. But if at any time we can. find a method of . arriving at a ruling price we will ./- certainly publish same. Finally we apologise for the long delay in answering this letter, b...
