WHAT'S IN A NAME [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

WHAT'S IN A NAME Names were becoming a worry to the Wanderer when he had christened a scoro or so of the imndred natives who one day turned up and required tucker. Finally he hit upon the idea of employing those of film stars. And 4o, the males having been given fironer precedence in accordance ?vith blackfellow custom,1 the wo nen came to bo recorded.

The Children's Page STORIES OF THE MAGIC CARPET [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

The Children's Page STORIES OF THE MAGIC CARPET By JULIA ANNE Once upon a time there were two little children, twins, their names were David and Judith. They lived on a station many miles away from any other children, so at times they were very lonely, but they had one secret they kept that stopped them thinking 'of this too much. Not even mummy knew this secret, so you can see it must have been very import ant. Every night after they had gone to bed and the sandman had been, they would awaken to find an Arab Wizard, whom they called Alii Kuh, by their bedside. Every night he would take them for a ride on his magic carpet. Out of the window they would fly and soar up into the bright sparkling sky until either David or Judith saw in the distance a star they would like to visit. Then Alii would guide the magic carpet down gently and land lightly on that star, then they would visit all the funny little people on it. When they became tired Alii Kuh would carry them bnck to the carpet, t...

MOUNT STUART [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

MOUNT STUART Tn the geographical cenli'c of Australia stand Mount Stuart, apart from the fact that it is historical and it is a trifle hitrhcr than the surrounding low hills there is nothing impressive about it. The great north bitumen road passes within two miles of it, just because it is Mt. Stuart and the tourist wishes to say he or she* has actually stood in the centre of our vast island, a road leads oft' the highway and with scores of others we pro along. The climb up is not difficult, nor is the look out so impressive as scores of mountains available for the tour ist in the Northern Territory. However, once on top close your eyes and imagine for tho time you are Stuart, that you have slipped back scores of years, forget that down below is a magnificent tour ing car or a private one of your own from which you can get to a telegraph station in a few minutes' run. Stuart had just partly completed a journey over 1,200 miles with a further 800 'to go, he had had al ready heart-bre...

NORTHERN TERRITORY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

? NbRTHBRk TERRITORY Mr. Tom Turner, for years a police constable in the Northern Territory, and Mrs. Turner in an interview with Vox, of the 'Ad- vertiser,' recently stated that they were enthusiatic about the good, prospects of cotton growing in the top of Australia. 'I grew a cotton bush hedge at Boroloolo, and the goats used to trim it,' said Mr. Turner. 'It ?thrives in Arnhem Land, and there arc plenty of aborigines who could be employed on it. I think there is a great chance for the cotton industry up there; because it is not attacked by boll weevil.' Mrs. Turner said cotton grows wild at Daly River. They had it all round their fowl run. They also had beautiful wild kapoc ; the blacks would go out and collect two sugar bags full in a day.

INTRODUCTION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

INTRODUCTION The Australian public should Ket to know the aboriginals better. They should not have to accept, as thev now often do. the nonsense written by some people with super ficial knowledge gained by merely passing through the Northern Territory. After GO years' experience in Queensland and the Northern Ter ritory 'The Wanderer' feels that there is certain basic knowledge essential to some real understand ing of the aboriginal in these areas. The Northern Territory, for in stance, is divided into numerous tribal 'states' or 'counties.' In each one certain fundamental laws are practically identical. One 'state' can seldom speak the language of its neighbor. For a native to ti*avel through one 'state' or 'county' to another he must obtain permission from a Tuggamurra (chief) and get a pass which is in the shape of a small bone disc. Should ho not possess this he will certainly be speared for trespassing. Native laws are rigid, the moral code particularly. That is whv morals amon...

SOCIAL EVENING Farewell To Mr. Virgil King, Dr. and Mrs. Lum and Mr. W. Doak [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

SOCIAL EVENING Farewell To Mr. Virgil King, Dr. and Mrs. Lum and Mr. W. Doak Monday evening saw at the Catholic Presbytery a large num— ber of the citizens of Alice Springs to bid goodbye to our old friend Mr. King, our popular Doctor Lum and wife, and our friend Mr. W. Doak. The Rev. Father Eather, with the assistance of Sisters Dunn, Woolmington and Trainer and un— doubtedly other helpers, had gone to unceasing trouble in getting together and making all the good things that made the evening the     immense success it was. These gatherings do the world of good, we meet people that     otherwise one would not because home life and different interests   naturally keep them apart.
