BOXING [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 22 November 1947

H Membership of the Stuart Box ing Club is increasing every week, and it is no trouble at all to find a sparring partner for anybody interested enough to go along. Provisions are being madjc to eventually equip a part of the Capitol Theatre with plenty of punch bags, boxing gloves, skip ping ropes, mats, complete ring outfit and gymnastic equipment. This may take some time due to the shortage of materials, but with plenty of hard work and patience the club will carry out these plans.

R.S.S. & A. CLUB NOTES Food For Britain [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 22 November 1947

R.S.S. & A. CLUB NOTES Food For Britain Federal Executive of the Re turned Servicemen's League has decided to urge the Commonwealth Government to use its influence with the Imperial authorities to prevent food from Australia for Britain being sent to ex-enemy countries. The Federal President of the League (Mr. Eric Millhouse, K.C.), who returned recently from England, said that from what he saw on his trip it was imperative for the British people to be given an improved diet, and until this was possible, no food from Aus tralia, at any rate, should be diverted to occupied Europe. Medical Treatment Without Pensions Many ex-servicemen who have been in receipt of a pension for a disability are not aware that 'if the pension is cancelled on review by the Repatriation Board they still maintain the right to seek medical treatment, as they did prior to the cancellation of pen sion. The cancellation of pension means, in fact, that the member is not suffering such a degree of incapac...

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22 1947 BEHAVIOUR OF OUR POLITICIANS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 22 November 1947

CENTPwALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22 1947 BEHAVIOUR OF OUU POLITICIANS For the past six months, the Houses of .Parliament for every State of Australia and at Can berra have ' been bedlam houses. Never has Australia seen, read or heard of so much abuse being used in the Houses. Every day a new case arises in which two politicians almost tear each others' character apart in what should be a reasonable discussion of politics. If our parliamentarians go on in this way of abusing1 one an other instead of discussing the real issue before the House, then it is time we had a general clean up. When a member is elected to parliament by the people he is in the public eye, and he is sup posed to be a representative of the people, and to act accordingly, at least we gather that is one of the things they are paid for. They are there to form the rules which will govern the country, to debate, bisect these rules until they have something solidly worked out that is for the betterment of the co...

ROUND AUSTRALIA BY BICYCLE TWO GIRL CYCLISTS ARRIVE AT ALICE SPRINGS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 22 November 1947

ROUND AUSTRALIA BY BICYCLE TWO GIRL CYCLISTS ARRIVE AT ALICE SPRINGS Among our visitors to Alice Springs this week were two very interesting young ladies, namely, Miss Shirley. Duncan and Wendy Law, not forgetting their faithful little watchdog, Peter. These two girls are on an un usual holiday, cycling around Aus tralia in leisure time and getting to know their country and the people of each State. They left Melbourne approxi mately 19 months ago and travelled up the coast'through Sydney, Bris bane, Townsville, Cairns, and while up there spent a few weeks' holi day looking around the country and managed to get over to the Barrier Reef. After seeing what there was to see they made their way leisurely down through to Cloncurry then up to Norman ton to see just what the Gulf country really looked like. Their only dis appointment apparently was in not seeing any crocodile's. From there they made their way down to Mt. Isa, and then across to Tennant Creek. Incidentally, this trip is not...

TRIUMPHANT WEDDING OF ROYAL COUPLE H.R.H. PRINCESS ELIZABETH AND LT. PHILIP MOUNTBATTEN, NOW DUKE OF EDINBURGH [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 22 November 1947

TRIUMPHANT WEDDING OF ROYAL COUPLE H.R.H. PRINCESS ELIZABETH AND LT. PHILIP MOUNTBATTEN, NOW DUKE OF EDINBURGH The wedding day of H.R.H. Princess Elizabeth dawned grey and slightly misty, but no rain had fallen for several hours and the weather was surprisingly warm for a November day. -Thousands of people took up their positions in the streets on Wednesday night, undaunted by the cold night before them. They were well disciplined and during the early morning, while waiting for the processions to commence, amused themselves by community singing. The atmosphere around Bucking ham Palace was alive with festiv ity, with the standards around the Palace bearing the initials 'E.P.' Flags were waved by the crowds of children gathered out side. The first procession to leave the Palace was that of H.M. Queen Elizabeth, accompanied by Princess Margaret and followed by her Royal guests. As their coaches pulled out of the quadrangle of | the Palace, the strains of the National Anthem could be h...

"THE LEADERLESS SHEEP." PEN FRIEND WANTED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 22 November 1947

'THE LEADERLESS SHEEP.' PEN FRIEND WANTED Sir. — My sister and I both have an Australian pen friend and their letters are a constant source of joy to my mother, who is 73 vears old, and lives alone. A letter from the other side of the world has a magic all its own and, believe me, we really appreciate a little of that magic in Britain today. Well, I am determined that my mother's remaining years shall be as happy as it is possible for me to make them, and I know that nothing on earth would bring her such hap- piness as an Australian pen friend of her very own. So, I wonder if there is anyone of your readers who would write to her, just an occasional letter, to give just that added interest to her life, and a pleasure she can constantly look forward to. I should be so grate- ful. Her address is : Mrs. M. Boocock, 54, The Bungalows. West Estate, Mytholmroyd, Halifax,   Yorkshire, ENGLAND. Very Sincerely, MRS. R. DAWSON.

CATTLE TRUCKING YARDS AT FINKE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 22 November 1947

CATTLE TRUCKING YARDS AT FINKE   Sir. — A few weeks ago reference was made in your paper regarding the erection of cattle trucking yards at the Finke Siding. To afford you and others some idea of the necessity of having these yards built, where permanent water is available, the following may be of some interest. On Thursday, October 28, Unbearra Station and myself loaded 28 vans of fats at Rumbalara and on the preceding day Horseshoe Hend was loading a special train also, their loading time being l.30 p.m. Our consignment was to be loaded by 9.30 a.m. on the 28th. Horsehoe Bend cattle were clear of the yards at 1.30 and we immediately commenced to water our cattle, but owing to the water having to run approximately 50 yards through a 2-inch pipeline from railway water gins, we were only able to let about thirty head in at a time, and even then we had to wait sometime for the trough to refill before letting another lot into the yard. Timing each lot of cattle, it took on...

THE KING CAN, AND CANNOT— [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 22 November 1947

THE KING CAN, AND CANNOT— Few people probably realise the extent of the privileges enjoyed by a reigning Mon arch of Britain. If the Kinj? chose, to shoot one ?of his Ministers he could not even be brought to trial, since no court may lawfully sit in judgment on the Monarch. His Majesty can, if he so wishes, , refuse to sign any Bill submitted by any Minister, even although it has been passed by both Houses of Parliament. King James II. in his flight to France, threw the Great and Privy Seals into the Thames, and by so doing- suspended the Government of England because the Seal is needed to stamp legally on orders. King George VI has the power to put an end to participation in wars; he can sell all Britain's warships, put all her fighting men out of uniform, and disband every male and female unit. But, apart from these tremen dous powers, he has several small er, every day privileges. For example, he can send his letters without stamps and claim priority for his telegrams. He can dr...

CRICKET [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 29 November 1947

CR ICKET This week's match was played between the Town and Works and Housing, and although the Town had an outright win, the match was one of the most intex-esting seen here for some time. The Town team batted first, and their openers were K. Muluoon and G. Owen. These two opened brightly and knocked up quite a nice score before bein£ outed. Muldoon 37 and Owen 40 were the highest scorers for the Town, and gave the spectators all the thrills they wanted. They gave chance after chance, but luck seemed to be with them throughout their innings. The Town were all out for 118, when the Works and Housing went in to bat. Their openers, O'Keefe 20 and Muzam 17, played steady and safe cricket during their innings, but when the total reached 41 they were both dismissed. Then came calamity for the Works and Housing team, their wickets fell as follows: 3/41, 4/44, 5/44, 0/44, 7/40, 8/57, 9/57, and 10/58. The only batsman to make a stand at all for the tail enders was R. Stenaws, 9 not out. Tota...
