DANGER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 8 November 1947

DANGER Oi later there have been a num ber of near accidents on the streets of Alice Springs. Child ren playing on the roads with their bikes and toys or running across in front of cars chasing their playballs. Dangerous driving is often the cause of accidents, but the pedes trian himself, too, can be the cause.

TICKS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 8 November 1947

T ICKS The tick which causes most economic loss to the livestock in dustry in Australia is the cattle tick (Boophilus australis). It is distributed over the coastal areas of the northern parts of Austra lia where a warm, moist climate exists and is not found in the drier parts of the continent. Action taken by Government authorities in different parts of Australia is designed to check the spread of tick. Such spread is most likely to occur from one coastal area to an adjacent one, for example southward along the coast of New South Wales, where accordingly the check on the move ment of stock is very exacting. The indications are that humidity and temperature play a very great part in the prevention of spread into dry, inland areas. Cattle are by far the most im portant hosts of the parasite. However, other animals may carry it and can prove to be very dangerous particularly in view of the modern methods of transport. To illustrate this point, a few cases are mentioned : (a) A race me...

THE TERRITORY TRAMP'S FIRST NORTHERN TRIP, APRIL 1909 [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 8 November 1947

THE TERRITORY TRAMP'S FIRST NORTHERN TRIP, APRIL 1909 {Travelling from Adelaide to Oodnadatta by train was u real ordeal in days Kone by. 1 well remember my own experiences when I decided to come North* to Arltunga to try my luck. No din ing-cars or sleepers in' those days, one had ' to take along sufficient provisions to last the trip, only hot water to make a billy of tea wits provided for from the engine. After three long and tiring days the train arrived at Oodnadatta around midnight, peering through I picked out a few white faces among the many black ones and not a familiar one amongst them to greet me. Some of the bush men lead the way to the boarding house and with thoughts of' a tasty meal, a hot bath and a com fortable bed I followed along. Imagine my' feelings when I dis covered that all I could secure in the way of comfort was a bunk on the verandah and a wash at the tap. On making enquiries I was told the North-bound mail would be leaving in the early hours of the mornin...

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MELBOURNE CUP [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 8 November 1947

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MELBOURNE CUP This year's Melbourne Cup, the 87th, was run under leaden skies and drizzling rain, and a wind which , was almost a gale. But none of this failed to dampen the spirits of, the crowd of «84,000 people who- saw Hiraji, 12/1, win the cup from Fresh Boy and Red Fury with Praetor fourth. J. Purtell, who rode the winner, returned to scale amid loud ap plause from the crowd with a broad grin right across his face, and well he might, for it was his first Melbourne Cup win. The sympathy of the crowd was for young R. Eames, who rode such a magnificent race on the pony, Fresh Boy, possibly be cause of the small, but game little horse and the 16-year-old ap prentice being such a grand com bination. Hiraji, who had until the Cup been considered the unluckiest horse for the year, was also the 'form' horse for the race with the Derby winner out of the race. The most unfortunate part of the Cup was perhaps the fact that Mr. F. N. Hughes (Hiraji's own er) was not pres...

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 8 November 1947

Women's Cclumn CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Good afternoon everyone ! Our summer approaches — in fact it's almost time to launder or dry *«|pft»i lhf- winter woollies before packing them away. But as we step into summer, England, with food restrictions, power and fuel restrictions, shivers at the thought of the winter that is so near. There is no need I'm sure, to mention the hardships that lie ahead for Eng land's millions. Nor is there need to recall the reason for England's sad state. We all know. Per haps some of those warm clothes will not be packed away in your cupboard but will be despatched, as soon as you have given them 'the once-over,' to cheer the heart and warm the body of some man, woman or child whose need is greater than any we have known. Maybe you can spare an extra parcel of foodstuffs tocv — the old English Christmas dinner will be sadly below par this year in the homeland, and 'he who gives early, gi%*es twice'; ana it you ve missed the guaranteed Christmas mail, well...

When he had, gone a little way, he found that the wind was stronger that he had thought. So he ducked his head, and held on to his hat, and kept the lantern steady.
