FEAST OF CHRIST THE KING [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 1 November 1947
FEAST OF CHRIST THE KING — :o: — On Sunday last, October 25, the Catholic world celebrated the Feast of 'Christ the King', ack nowledging Christ's supremacy over our minds and hearts. To honour the Feast in a fitting man ner, a Missa Cantata or Sung Mass was celebrated at the Cath olic Church, Alice Springs, the celebrant of the Mass- -being Rev. Father Eather, M.S.C., who was assisted by the following servers: W. Parer, G. Cawood, J. Parer and J. Stacey. The altar was tastefully decor ated in white and gold, and dur ing the Mass the choir rendered the beautiful 'Mass of St. Michael' (Loesch); the rich and solemn' tones of the 'Gloria', 'Credo' and 'Sanctus' lent much to the majestic character of the Feast, and the 'Christus Vincit' at the Offertory expressed fully the sentiment of the church on this occasion. Miss Marion Kilgariff presided at the organ. At an earlier Mass, thirteen children made their first Holy Communion. The first Com munion hymns were sweetly sung by the childre...
TO THE EDITOR EARLY DAYS OF THE ALICE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 1 November 1947
TO THE EDITOR — :o:— EARLY DAYS OF THE ALICE Sir. — One of your papers by chance reach ... me yesterday and £ was delighted with it, and many of the advertisements in it. Fancy one being able to read of picture shows, steam laundries, etc., and of streets being formed, running side by side with the Todd River, and numerous other things which make life worth living for. Not that I mean it wasn't previously. The Alice was always a place; where we old pioneers of the North found peace and quietness, not forgetting the times sitting under one of those gum trees with a bottle of rum, £1 per bottle straight from McDonald's cask, or else 10/- for a bottle which con tained half water strained from a hole dug in the sand known as a aoakage wejl. Was there ever a more grand lot of men that lived year in and year out in these parts ? Six-weekly mail and sometimes months would ? pass without seeing a strange face. Apart from the pleasure of doing stockwork on the stations, which was a pleasure ...
Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 1 November 1947
Women's Column — :o: — CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Good afternoon friends.! Fancy only a few weeks till Christmas ! Hasn't the year down ? I've heard those two remarks several times this last week or so; you have also I guess. And donj* we hear and say them every year, and wonder how so many months went by so quickly' ? But there are two months — two months which can be wisely planned so that when your holiday train putt's out of the station you will feel confident that nothing- has been overlooked: or if your festive sea son is to be spent at home you will know that every job which could possibly be done in advance has been done. Take a look at the calendnr, take a pencil and jot down the 'nuist-be-dones', then make a rough time-table to act as a guide. Notice I wrote 'guide' not 'master.' It does save that Christmas rush being so hectic if the ingredients fur cake and pudding are prepared one week and put into jars, the cake made later that week perhaps, and iced the next day to pack a...

LYTE'S PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 8 November 1947
LYTE'S PRAYER The following poem was written in 1847 and entitled 'Declining Days.' In it Lyte nravpd that he miirht be allow ed to write an inspired word to glorify his Cod and comfort his fellowmen. In 'Abide with me,' this prayer was answered. Why do I sigh to find Life's evening shadows gathering round my way ? The keen eye dimming', and the buoyant mind Unhing.ing dav by day ? Can T not summon pride To fold my decent 'mantle round breast; And lay me down at nature's Eventide, Calm to mv dreamless rest. No ! 'tis the thought that I — My lamp so low, my sun so nearly - set — Have lived so useless, so unmiss'd should die: 'Tis this, I now regret. I would not be the wave That swells and ripples up to yonder shore; That drives impulsive on, the wild wind's slave, And breaks, and is no more ! I would not be the breeze, That' murmurs by me in its view less play, Bends the light grass, and flutters in the trees, and sighs and flits away ! No ! not like wave or wind Be my career across ...
