THE WORLD WE KNOW [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 8 November 1947

THE WORLD WE KNOW If you walk as a friend, you will find a friend wherever you choose to fare. If you go with mirth to a strange land, you will find that mirth is there, For the strangest part of this queer old world is that like will join with like. And who walks with love for his fellow, an answering love will strike. If you walk in honour then hon est men will meet ? you along the way. Hut if you are false you will find men false wherever you chance to stray. For good breeds good and bad breeds bad, we are met by the traits we show. Love will find a friend at the' stranger's door, where hate will find a foe. For each of us builds the world he knows, which only himself can spoil. And an hour of hate or an hour of shame can ruin a life of toil. And through to the uttermost end of the arth your duty may bid you fare, If you go with truth and n friendly heart, you will find friends waiting there. It was the jazz band that orig inally put the din in dinner and took the rest out of res...

PURTELL COULD HAVE LOST THE CUP After Hirajt had won the Mel bourne Cup and Purtell had un stander rushed out of the crowd saddled his grey horse, a by trying to shake hands with the jockey, but luckily a steward stepped in quickly between them ana remonstrated with the by stander. PurteH did not put out his hand to shake as he had his saddle over his left arm and was holding his cap in his right hand. It is quite possible for a jockey to lose a race by shaking hands before he weighs in, so officials have to be very wary of impetuous spectators. Friday (yesterday) was the lost run for Guinea Airways passenger and freight service. PasHengera previously booked will be carried lyTAA.

THE IMMENSITY OF IT ALL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 8 November 1947

THE IMMENSITY OF IT ALL By IlEV. H. GRIFFITHS During the last few days the Methodist parsonage lias enter tcrtained some very interesting people, among whom was a gen tleman and two ladies. The gen tleman in making the introductions said: 'I am Mr. — of the A. B.C., this ? is Miss — of the B.B.C., and this is Miss— of both the A.B.C. and the B.B.C.' After this one could only say 'I.C., come in.' In no time the .kettle was put on to boil, the lounge floor strewn with maps of the mission area and and we were all on our hands and knees. A.B.C. was kneeling on Queensland and losing himself in the jungle of the Gulf country. B.B.C. was combing the Northern Territory looking for Arltunga and the* mica mines. Presently one of them asked the distance between Alice Springs and Dar win, and when I replied 'just on a thousand miles,' B.B.C. exclaim ed 'However am I going to make the people of England realise the immensity of it all.' That exclamation gave me the lead I had been seeking since M...

GROWTH OF TENNANT CREEK TOWNSHIP [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 8 November 1947

GROWTH OF TENNANT CREEK TOWNSHIP An indication of the confidence in the future of Tennant Creek is the rapid growth of the township since the war years, and t would be no exaggeration to state that were building materials and skilled labor more readily obtainable, the number of buildings erected since that time would be more than doubled. Rusness premises erected since the beginning of lJ-4(i include two garages, one drapery shop, one butcher shop, two general stores, as well as new business premises for two stores already established, one modern machine-equipped furniture factory, a new building -for the E.S. & A. Bank, one milk bar and tea rooms, and a second picture theatre. The number of prvate dwellings erected in the township itself during that time would be approximately twenty. For a town whose population, in cluding residents on the leases, is in the vicinity of six hundred, this growth of building is remarkable'. In September last year the population was at the sam...

TENNANT CREEK NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 8 November 1947

TENNANT CREEK NOTES As the expiration of mining leases is being lifted from March 24 next, people are looking forward to a greater and far more nrosner ous Tennant. The 'field, should go ahead, firstly because the mines whose equipment was impressed in 1942 should be by then ready to resume operations again, and with new shows being worked this will mean far more ore than ever before; At present the crushing of ore appears to be the one thing that will hold things back. Gold is wanted, we have the men to get it, therefore the Government would be well advised to increase the crushing facilities of the field, for even at the present time the waiting list is a long one, and it takes weeks to get one crushing of 500 tons through. The ave rage gouger is a poor man, work ing hard under very bad condi tions — flies, mosquitoes, heat and having to prepare his own meals. Why should he have to wait months for his crushing1 to be put through, therefore, we hope the Govern ment will accelerate ...

At long last the painting' and fitting of electric lights in the extension to the club is ' nearing completion, and although the opening nignt nas oeen postponed, that particular night will be worth waiting for, as a grand time has been promised by the very ener getic officials. Watch this column for the announcement of '* the opening date. Something that this club could do with and which, no doubt, would be very much appreciated by all members, is a Woman's Auxiliary Club. This auxiliary body of the club can do much to put* the R.S.L. on the map, and in other parts of Australia have v very fine name. What about it, cobbers, its up to you ! All that muttering about you know what you can do with the 'Sprngfield beer' heard lately in the clubroom, seems to have died down suddenly, and for a very good reason.
