ADMINISTRATOR GETS THINGS DONE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 29 November 1947

ADMINISTRATOR GETS THINGS DONE Since the night of the last Progress Association meeting when His Honour the Adminis trator (Mr. Driver) was present and had promised to see why certain improvements had not been carried out around Alice Springs, things have been moving at such a rate that the people of this town cannot make it out at all. But, nevertheless, they are truly thankful to date for the following reasons. The acute water supply for residents of Todd Ward is being alleviated by larger mains being installed by Works and Housing. Plans and material are ready for building causeway. This work is held up only because that this time of the year is the worst time to start a causeway across the Todd. Main road is being graded and formed along East side of Todd. This goes to show that provid ing these points are put before the Administrator and his staff clearly, that where it is possible they will help the people in tho Northern Territory. It is in this type of work that the Progress...

CATTLE TRUCKING YARDS FOR FINKE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 29 November 1947

CATTLE TRUCKING YARDS FOR FINKE The matter of providing cattle trucking; yards at Finke Siding, as raised in an interesting letter in our last issue, is not new, and the belief among cattlemen of those parts that yards should be built at Finke has grown stronger with the passing of the years. But to those who are less ac \mtainted with the southern end 'of the Northern Territory, the facts contained in the letter in our issue of November 22, must have seemed extraordinary. It certainly is unusual to drive cattle from within a few miles of a rail way siding where there is a good water supply, to truck at the Kumbalara -railway .siding where there is no1' sufficient' water: supply, but where the water in the cattle troughs has been brought by rail either north or south for 20 miles. At first sight . that just seems stupid, but on looking into the matter it seems that there was* in the past, some justification 'for the .erection of a cattle yard at Rumbala'ra, even if trucking cattle f...
