CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1947. SUSPICION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 25 October 1947

CENTRALJAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1947. SUSPICION No matter what our Government does, no matter what we read in the papers, or see in the pictures, or hear in the streets, we view with suspicion. Today it seems that whatever people do to help us, we have to see it in a sus picious light. We read in the papers and hear over the radio of the continual bickerings of differ ent nations, which brought down to plain facts is only suspicion again. We talk of how to stop this among nations, when we have it in our own backyards to stop. The other party or person is, of course, continually to blame, and if ho does anything to try and j thrash the matter out, he is viewed with suspicion. It is a nasty word ! and can do a lot of damage with- j out any apparent reason. Surely ' it is 'time everybody came out j into the open and instead of being suspicious give the other party a ' chance to air his or her views ! and try to get together to solve the many problems that confront them, then ...

DO YOU KNOW? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 25 October 1947

DO YOU KNOW? At Cudtfen Headland, Now South Wules, is the moat remarkable mine in Australia — a 'smoke- screen' mine in the sea sand. 120 tons a day are mined from these mineral sands, which contain a vital necessity in the making of smoke-screen fuel. Worth its weight in gold, it is the biggest deposit on earth. In the old mining days William Osmond, of Pleasant ' Creek, Vic toria, had 200 shares in the Duke Mine, which he thought were use less. When a local bootmaker made him a pair of boots he offered the shares in lieu of pay ment, which were accepted. A month later the 'mine struck a rich reef and the same shares realised AM 8,000. Many rare first editions lie in a library which serves only twelve people. In the back room of the police station of the town of itooroloola, once an important centre on the overland route from Darwin is a library many biblio maniacs would covet. It now serves only eleven men and one woman — all the citizens left in the town. A district in New South ...

"MISS AUSTRALIA" QUEST [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 25 October 1947

'MISS AUSTRALIA' QUEST 1 ' ? V/ ? The 'Miss Australia' Quest is nearing its con cluding stages, and 'Miss Northern Territory' is re quired to attend a Grand Final Quest Ball with the other South Australian candidates, in Adelaide on Tuesday, November 4. The campaign in support of( 'Miss Northern Territory' ha? had its ups and downs and there have been times and places when the greatest enthusiasm has been evident. The result to date can, however, only be regarded as dis appointing. The organisers them selves freely accept some of the blame for the indifferent response to the appeal, through their in ability to devote more time to the detail of organisation. The great est factor in dulling the enthus iasm of the people has, however, been a 'whispering campaign' dir ected by some of our citizens against Miss Campbell personally and also against her claims to represent the Territory in this quest. AH that these people have achieved is to reduce the amount of money that will be availabl...
