COMMUNITY SINGING [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 7 June 1947
COMMUNITY SINGING Owing to cold nights the attend ance has lapsed somewhat. The hall is too cold, what we require in winter is a heat conditioned room. One of our bad-minded artists suggested a few bottles of rum. That, we think would over heat the multitude and the sing ing would become unruly with the conductor holding a brick in either hand. No. we want a town hall, air conditioned, etc., that would give the public something to be proud of. Port Augusta has a hall of this kind and we want the same.

PEACE OR WAR ? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 7 June 1947
PEACE OR WAR ? The world is in a state of agi tation never before experienced in any previous war in history, it must be bad news for the men who fought so gallantly, risked their lives, homes and businesses to see that all this was in vain. Each man as he sat in discom fort in the trenches or in some dangerous position, with bui'sting shells falling around him, never knowing but that the next one would have his name written upon it, have sworn that should they survive, this world would never be the same, they would in some way or other make or help to make plans that would banish all wars and abolish the awful risk they were then taking, so that the sons and daughters they had or hoped some day to have would never again have to undergo the trials and tribulations that their paints suffered. Now it seems it was all in vain. The thousands of promises that were made to them on leaving are like all other promises, just as Germany said in the first war and Hitler in the second, merely a...

THE WRITING ON THE WALL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 7 June 1947
THE WRITING ON THE WALL It is quite clear to the inhabit ants of the Alice that the TAA means to run an air service from Melbourne to Darwin and already letters are coming forward to pri vate citizens to show that Mel bourne knows it. At Alice they are not worried a bit, they see two services that will give added travelling room. Many people that wish to visit the North will by-pass Adelaide, which is sad for Adelaide, but will add to busi ness for Alice, but probably some loss to business in Adelaide. The betting would be at present 10 to one that TAA will start from Mel bourne and two to one that by taking mails will shut down or seriously cripple the Guinea ser vice. We fancy the writing is on the wall for Nationalization. What is your jruess ?
