TOURING TRIPS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

TOURING TRIPS Every train' sees scorer, of tour ists arriving at Alice Springs, both by train and by air, four large touring coaches are doing a profit able trade and it seems as if thore were room for more. Vvo m Alice Springs, as well as the many beauty spots of the North are far from giving them all the service they require and can demand. Some: spots on the far east are impossible to any mean:' we have apart from horseflesh to get thrcro. One of these is Glen Annie, some SO miles er.r.t, according to a ro liablo friend that has investigated it, tnorc in nothing -m the Terri tory to get; near it, both in scenic beauty grandeur of tho ravines and Hteep cliffs.

RAILWAY SERVICE HUTS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

RAILWAY SERVICE HUTS The Commonwealth Kail way Commissioner must in these times of unrest be a very worried man and we do not want to add much to his; worries. ? As usual the hcusinj- problem crops up. Op posite the 'Centralian' oHico arc a lot of railway huts, whore the personnel of various parts of rail way workers arc living, they arc not a very pretonsious line, but the workers realising the times arc not grumbling, but they want many more of them, new men getting positions on our ever ex panding traffic find that although .they have a job to go to they can not get even one of these small huts. That is not a fair thing Mr. Commissioner, the va'ue of the huts are approximate ly £75 and the amenities around them as far as we can sec are nil. There seems to be an anomaly in house building in the Alice, some officials are getting homes costing up to £2,000 and so down the scale to those mentioned. As stated else where in this issue no one can expect mansions and we have never heard ...

SERIOUS ACCIDENT AT GRANITES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 31 May 1947

SERIOUS ACCIDENT AT GRANITES A serious accident happened to one of the oldest of the reliable team of miners who have kept the Granites gold field going over the war years and after. Mr. W. Anderson, working down at 90 ft., in a new shaft to cut values as shown by the diamond drill, had the misfortune to have a bucket of ore dropped from about 10 feet above his head. Just how the bucket escaped is at present not known. Unfortunately, Bill, as we affectionately know him, was stooping and was struck on the spine. Help was sent down at once and he came to the surface with one leg completely paralysed. Here once again is shown the value of the transreceiver. Immediately the doctor, through the unceasing energy of Mr. Pitt, our radio operator, Mr. Connellan's plane at once manned and with a doctor on board, reached the Gran- ites in record time. On Friday morning, the plane with Mr. Anderson on board ar- rived at the drome and was met by Mr. Pat Chapman and taken direct to the hospital. ...
