CREDIT DUE TO GOVERNMENT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

CREDIT DUE TO GOVERNMENT We know that is a popular sport to mention all the things the Gov ernment in power do not do, and they are plenty. Nevertheless it is a fair thing to give credit to what they actually have done, so this paper shall turn over its first leaf by recounting what this pre sent and past benefits are. 1. — A first-class post and tele graph oflice with an all round the clock efficient telephone service and officials that are civil and helpful. 2. — A good railway staff, all try ing to help to the best of their ability. Our carriages are much out of date, but the weekly mail trains with their comfortable sleeping berths and excellent dining car with a very attentive staff, makes the trip up or down quite a family affair, and makes many introductions ' that ordinarily would never occur. 'i. — District dromes are kept in good order and the services of the air are all that can be desired. ?I. — The great North bitumen road with a fast motor mail ser vice, and maintenanc...

VENDETTA ABORIGINAL LEGEND [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

VENDETTA \ A I JO KK'J i N A ? , . . iOt J EN D Nowhere in the world are vendettas carried more viciously to Hie death than in the wild desolate spaces of the Northern Territory. .The Native Tribes of Central Australia, wandering their desert spaces, know how to avenge grudges. Perhaps it is because the 1 dry seasons separate theblacks from one another for so long they have more time to work up their grievances. So that once the 'big rains' come and water is plentiful then they meet at their Tribal Grounds *to do battle. The historic gold i*ush to the famous Granites field in the desert, 370 miles north-west of Alice Springs, was at its height towards the end of 1932, when the gold quest was one day momentarily forgotten in a flare-up betwqen the blacks. They had come in, some from great distances, to witness the motor cars, boring equip ment, and mechanical wonders of the first White Men, many of them had ever seen. As the Skipper learned from pidgeon English 'yabba' with the local...

OUR JUDGE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

OUR JUDGE One of the longest sessions of court proceedings ever held in Alice Springs has just concluded. We had the usual collection of aboriginals, poor beggars that were brought up for disobeying laws that the never can or will understand. Also men who boost of their career of long sentences. One for instance was reminded that he had 42 previous convictions against him proudly rcnuirked : 'Yes your Honor and it took me 42 years to get them.' Just whether he was expecting the Vic orian Cross or not is a matter of l.is. concern, our Judge gave him ~r'iTjething else, a term in our jail ? hich treats that Hnss of sinner cry leniently and was given a i' ommendation by this hoary old '?nor who liked the place.

OUR MEMBER MR. ALEX BLAIN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

OUR MEMBER MR. ALEX BLAIN Yes readers we have a Member in the House of Representatives, since election not much has been heard of him, he is a silent worker. This paper wants to hear just what he has done to justify our faith in his promises. This Terri tory wants things done and in a hurry, it is expected that at least some accounting of his steward ship should b'e sent his constitu ents and the pages of the 'Cen- tral km Advocate' are always open and anything Mr. Rlain can show ho has done for the Territory he will have our help and get all the credit that may accrue for it. ? We want to know if he is willing to accept that extra £500 with the other appurtences and what in his opinion he has done for the coun try to deserve such a handsome reward. Of course some deduction may be made from remarks which are acid, because years ago (under Parliamentary privilege) Mr. Blain stated he was run off a min ing lease at the point of a rifle, the culprit did not own a rifle at the time, so ...

THE ATOM BOMB [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

THE ATOM BOMB As the atom bomb directly con cerns Central Australia we may be permitted to express our views, we. of course, have not been asked and not likely to be, but if there is any likely loss of life it is more likely to strike a white man than it is our black brethren. To the men who have fought to keep these same ubo's in security and their noble supporters, who by the way, have never mentioned the danger to the white popula tion) the idea of stopping science that also endanger their lives in the matter of ' making and firing these missiles has never occurred. They more than any one else in Australia know r.nd realise how close, very close, we were in be ing under the domination of a foreign power, they who gave their lives and those who risked theirs to save ours, know that the only safeguard against war is the pre paration to meet it. It is no use saying this cannot, occur again, the people won't stand for it. Un fortunately we have to fight if some belligerant nation for...

APPLICATION FOR FOUR ACRES OF GROUND FOR 200 ROOM HOSTEL REFUSED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

APPLICATION FOR FOUR ACRES OF G ROUND FOR 200 ROOM HOSTEL REFUSED An application by the representatives of the 200 room projected hostel to be erected- at Alice Springs on the west side of the railway line has been refused. Land Office official states that the Town Planner is now in Alice Springs and that further information of a place selected may be gi ven later. (Probably on top of Mt. Gillen). It is quite apparent for some reason we of Alice Sprung must bo taught to wait. At time of writing there is not nno single allotment in Alice Springs that is available from the Government. It is said that some areas across the Todd River will soon be sur veyed and apparently whether we like that place or not, that is where we have to go. We know of a family who re cently came from Victoria, who came here with the avowed in tention of building and living here, they would have been an asset to the community, but forced to leave because the first part of a home, the allotment wherein to build...

DARWIN'S DOINGS I The boys and girls of the Inter chureh Club had a onderful holi day, camping out for the week at Lee Point, some fifteen miles from the town. Fishing, swimming, hiking, and camp-fire sing-songs filled the days and the evenings. The one wail, when packing-up time came, was, 'Why couldn't we have stayed longer ?' Revs. Roberts and Grant, of Melville Church, were in charge of the camp, which comprised some sev enteen boys and girls. On Sunday last a Pookaminnit Corroboree was held at Bagot Com pound, when about a hundred blacks, most of them painted and decorated in wierd subistic designs, danced their traditional dances round the grave-posts they had erected near their cemetery. .The dance began by old men darting out to kill or drive away any debbil debbils that might be lurk ing round the posts; then three rings were formed, each ring striv ing to outdo the rival rings in the grace and skill of their dancing.
