"COURSE RECORD" [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 25 October 1947

'COURSE RECORD' What must be very nearly a 'course record' was established last Thursday when Nipper, a full blooded aboriginal, was charged with manslaughter before Judge Wells. It was alleged that Nipper killed another native with a boomerang at Echo Gorge in the Borrolooloo area. For the de fence it was claimed that Nipper threw the weapon to stop a brawl, but it accidentally struck a native in the back of the leg and severed an artery. The whole case took only 35 minutes during which time seven witnesses were heard and only two questions were asked in cross-examination. Nipper was found not guilty.

HELL OF AN ISLAND [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 25 October 1947

HELL. OF AN ISLAND — iUi— ? BY THE WANDERER Today the Wanderer has a happy *gl©»m in his wicked old eye and this invariably means new adventures and new scenery, just what, no one knows, probably the Wanderer doesn't either, it may be a hunch, but it certainly means action, more food is put aboard, more water, extra fuel, all is excitement, more hands come on deck and we are quite a gathering, some mighty rough types, but the Wanderer seems to like this sort, when they re turn home again, no one will be lieve the tales they tell, so the Wanderer's deeds and misdeeds are securely covered up. Sometime, in the early hours of the morning we left Darwin Har bour and steered maybe nor-west, as the Wanderer was steersman and did not encourage anybody's questions, a view of the compass was hidden, all we had who were not full of the good thing that cheers did not know and frankly did not care, occasionally the Wanderer's unmelodious voice would break out in song and even the deepest sleeper...

TO THE EDITOR ANZAC HILL RESERVE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 25 October 1947

TO THE EDITOR , ANZAC HILL RESERVE 1 Sir. — I was very interested to read the letter on the above sub ject over the pen of Rev. H. Griffiths 'On behalf of the Trus tees.' It was interesting to read that the Alice Springs Higher Primary School, the only Higher School in the whole of the. North ern Territory, the pride of all public spirited citizens and the commencement of an era of in tellectual and cultural development in Central Australia, is to be con fined to 'the stoney rise at the extreme north end' of the reserve. I was also interested to read that the only way these Higher Primary boys could follow ^any sports on the oval would be by peering through a hedge and that 'the oval will only be used by the senior boys when organised match es are arranged.' Heaven only knows where these boys are going to do their training and their practice, probably down the back lanes among the lavatories, or on the main roads. I certainly think and agree with the Rev. Griffiths that it ia time t...

MANBULLO ABBATOIRS AND ICE WORKS During the war, an abbatoirs with cold storage facilities was built on Manbullo, nine miles south of Katherine, and in addition a spur line one mile 18 chains in length was constructed southward from Katherine to serve an Army Field Supply Depot. At the end of the spur line an ice works and cold store were built. The question of disposal of these assets was considered by Cabinet early this year, but in view of the obstacles to the leasing of the meatworks on Manbuiloo as a fio ing concern, by virtue of the of the fact that they were constructed on private land, it was recommend ed that tenders be called for the disposal by sale of the meatworks and cool storage plant to any person or company who would operate a meatworks in the Terri tory. Certain Crown land on which the cold store and ice works had been built adjoining the spur line near Katherine was reserved from leasing and occupation in addition to an area of Crown land adjoin ing, Advertisement...

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Good afternoon to you all ! Have you had time to gather wild flow ers in the bush yet ? 1 found a new flower this week; at least it was new to me. The shrub on which it grows is a shapely bush so I hope to collect some seeds later to see if this native will deign to grace my garden. I know one person who gathered seed from the yellow-flowering shrub in Native Gap and now has a dozen or more plants which do not seem to object to being in an orderly row. Many of you are keen gardeners I know, and I Giddy Goose stuck out her long neck, and raced towards Sally Anne, the farmer's little daughter, hissing and flapping her wings. Sully Anne cried, 'Oh !' dropped her pail of milk, splish-splash, and ran back to the farm-house as fast as she could. 'I am different !' said Giddy Goose. 'Now, watch me make old Dog Tray jump !' Old Dog Tray was lying in front of his kennel. Giddy Goose stuck out out her long- neck, and raced towards him, hissing and Tray ju...

PLEURO PNEUMONIA OF CATTLE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 25 October 1947

I'LEUKO PNEUMONIA OF CATTLE — :o: — The Chief Veterinary Officer re ports that several cases have oc curred this season of the spread of pleuro-pneumonia because of the failure of lease-holders to properly inoculate their cattle be fore they start to travel along the stock routes. Regulations have been in force for some years requiring the in oculation of cattle against pleuro pneumonia in all cases where such cattle are moving off louses situ ated north of the 20th parallel of south latitude. In the main, these requirements have been faithfully fulfilled, with a result that a high degree of protection has been afforded to cattle on leases through which the travelling mobs pass. Breakdowns in this method of control will occur, firstly when travelling cattle are not inoculat ed at all before moving and, secondly, when the inoculation has has not been effectively carried out. The measures referred to in these notes are designed to protect lease-holders in ' the Territory from one of o...
