Test Cricket Did You Know This? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 May 1938

Test Cricket Did You Know This? The first Australian team which visit-   ed England to play test matches consist- ed of Aboriginals only. This was in 1867-68.         The names of the players were : Bull- ocky, Mullagh, Tiger, King Cole, Red Cap, Peter, Jim Crow, Twopenny, Charlie, Cozens, Mosquito, Dick-a-Dick, Tarpot, and Shepherd. This team played against the M.C.C. at Lords and against Surrey, Sussex, Kent, and other English teams, attract- ing big attendances, and winning several matches. They were a wonderful adver- tisement for Australia, and were popular everywhere. The first whiteman's cricket team from Australia to England did not go until ten years later, in 1878.

CAPRICORNIA EXTRACT FROM COMMONWEALTH PRIZE NOVEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 May 1938

CAPRICORNIA EXTRACT FROM COMMONWEALTH PRIZE NOVEL. "The Abo Call" has the privilege of printing another extract from "Capricornia", a Novel of North Australia, by Xavier Herbert. This Novel won the Commonwealth Literary Prize of £250 for the best novel of the year. The book is published by The Publicist Publish- ing Company, 209a Elizabeth Street, Sydney (Price 6/-). We recommend "Capricornia" as a wonderful book to present the case for better treatment of Australian Aborigines and Halfcastes.   The following extract tells of a speech, by ANDY McRANDY, who is an old "Combo," of the Northern Territory. He is speaking to NORMAN, a halfcaste, also to two white men,   by a camp-fire. Now read on . . . Andy broke in with a glowing ex- position of Norman's cleverness, which he delivered while bending forward and patting his shoulder, and which he ended by saying, "And he aint a prig with it. That's what I admire about him. He aint forgot his Old People as you mig...

The Massacres at Bathurst AS RELATED BY HON. W. H. SUTTOR, M.L.C. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 June 1938

The Massacres at Bathurst AS RELATED BY HON. W. H. SUTTOR, M.L.C. NOTE : As soon as the road across the Blue Mountains was discov- ered, there was a "rush" to take up land on the Western Plains. One of the pioneers was George Suttor, a farmer of Baulkham Hills, Parramatta, who, in the year 1822 took 400 sheep and a few cattle and settled at Brucedale, on the Winburndale Creek, near Bathurst. With the aid of his son, he extended his holding to 10,000 acres, and his flocks roamed far afield, towards Mudgee and down the Macquarie and Lachlan rivers.   A grandson of the original George Suttor was WILLIAM   HENRY SUTTOR, born at Bathurst in the year 1834, who later be- came the "squatter" of Alloway Bank station. W. H. Suttor was very well-known in public life, being a member of parliament, and at different times Minister for Mines, Justice, Education, and Post Office. At the time of his death, in 1915, Mr. Suttor was President of the Legislative Council. He mus...

Activities of W. Ferguson Executive Committee Resolutions. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 June 1938

Activities of W. Ferguson Executive Committee Resolutions. Following the General Meeting of   17th and 24th April last, several reports appeared in the "whitemen's" news- papers that W. Ferguson claimed to be "President of the Aborigines Progress- ive Association". Reports also appeared of Ferguson addressing whitemen's meetings, claim- ing to be the "President" of the Associa- tion, and, on 2nd May, several Aborig- ines received by post a "roneo'd'' circu- lar, caling a meeting of "The Aborigines Progressive Association", to be held at Dubbo on 30th June. This circular was signed "W. Ferguson, President", al- though Ferguson is not an officer of The Aborigines Progressive Association.   The Executive Committee therefore decided to take steps to restrain this in- dividual from improperly using the name of the Association, for the collection of   funds or otherwise, as it is necessary to protect the white community as well as the Aborigines from...

WHITE MEN TRESPASSING A Letter from James Yarry Campbell Walcha, N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 June 1938

WHITE MEN TRESPASSING A Letter from James Yarry Campbell   Walcha, N.S.W.   Our complaint here is that the A.P.   Board allows white men to run sheep, cattle, and horses, on the Aboriginal Re-   serve, and they eat all the feed, so we can't keep horses for our children to   ride to school. The fences around the reserve are cut and are falling down. Some of us tried to grow vegetables, corn, potatoes by the river-side, but the white people cut down the fences and let their stock in to trample down and eat what we planted with so much lab- our. All our work is gone for nothing. Note : The Aborigines Progressive Asso- ciation advocates farm settlement for Aborigines, as our people are keen farm- ers, when given the chance. Most of the present Reserves are on poor land, just what the whites don't want for them- selves, and badly watered. On top of   this, as the above letter shows, white people are allowed to ...

"THE ABO CALL" IN QUEENSLAND A Letter from Tom Simpson Tingoora. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 June 1938

"THE ABO CALL" IN QUEENSLAND A Letter from Tom Simpson Tingoora. "The Abo Call" is doing wonders for us, and your message is spreading like wildfire round here. I am a Halfcaste, born on Barambah Cattle Station. My father was a Scotsman, and my mother a full-blood. I have seven children. One of my daughters is married to a white man, and has two children. My sons and daughters have good education, and will be a great help in the work which is ahead of Aborigines, to better condit- ions. I follow up timber work, such as squaring and yard building and scrub falling, and other axe work. I have had a farm and was a farmer for fifteen years. I was a member of the Queens- land Primary Producers Association. I have also had a mail contract.   This is to show that Aborigines are able to become good and useful citizens, if given the chance. I wish to join the Association, and will wake up plenty others to do the same ; also please send me six copies of "Abo Call" every month. Th...

"THE ABO CALL" Difficulties Overcome. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 June 1938

"THE ABO CALL" Difficulties Overcome. The interest of the Government in the activities of the Aborigines Progressive Association was well demonstrated when the President was honoured by a visit of inspection from two senior officers of the Police Department, who carefully in- vestigated the Constitution & Rules and Minute Book of the Association. The visit was of two hours duration, and, as everything was in order, there is noth- ing more to report.   Two days later (12th May), J. T. Pat- ten, as publisher of "The Abo Call", re- ceived a letter from the Registrar- General, calling upon him to enter into recognizances, as required by the News- papers Act, 1898, the amount of the recognizances being £300, together with two or three sureties for like amount. This was almost a knock-out blow for "The Abo Call", and shows that, under our existing Australian press laws, since the year 1898, the poor man has no hope of starting a newspaper or practising "freedom of the...

Calling all Aborigines Straight Talk [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 June 1938

Calling all Aborigines Straight Talk by THE EDITOR. Will ever the shackles of misery and poverty be lifted from the lowliest section of the community — the Australian Aboriginals? As an Aboriginal in the responsible position of rebroadcasting the voice of the Aborigines themselves, so that the white people of this country will know the true conditions under which the Aborig- ines of Australia are forced to live, I say, Brothers and Sisters of my race, ask yourselves How have we fared under the whiteman's Administration? Look at our Reserves! What is it that greets us on investigat- ion? Starvation, poor housing and education, and general oppress- ion. It seems that the "Protection'' Board on some reserves ap- points men to torture us mentally with bullying tactics. This, with the wrecking of our physical condition through in- adequate food supply, has only one object — Extermination ! What   have we to lose if this so-called "protection" Board is abolished? With all the...

EXCITEMENT AT BELLBROOK. Rumour of Removal. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 June 1938

EXCITEMENT AT BELLBROOK. Rumour of Removal. The Aborigines of Bellbrook, Macleay   River, New South Wales are in a state of worry and excitement, following a   rumour that the A.P. Board intends to   move them all, lock, stock, and barrel, to Burnt Bridge, Kempsey.     We hope the A.P. Board will have more sense than to do this moving of our people, like pieces on a draught- board.       There is great dissatisfaction among the Aborigines at their treatment at Bellbrook, and it is thought that this bad treatment is intended to reconcile the Aborigines to the idea of leaving Bell- brook and going to Kempsey. Several letters from Bellbrook to "The Abo Call" make a strong protest against these tactics of the A.P. Board. Our people say they do not want to be moved from the district where most of them were born, away to Burnt Bridge to live among strangers. They are also afraid of the ...

Escaped from Queensland! AMAZING STORY OF A BURST FOR FREEDOM [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 June 1938

Escaped from Queensland ! AMAZING STORY OF A BURST FOR FREEDOM "The Abo Call" hase received a sen- sational letter from an Aboriginal who has fled across the Queensland border into New South Wales, to escape his tormentors. For obvious reasons, we cannot pub- lish this fugitive's name, as the Board in New South Wales would have power to return this man to his native State for further persecution, under the slave laws which are called "Protection " Acts that apply to the unfortunate original natives of Australia. The case is only too genuine, and we publish it to let the white community see the truth about "Democracy" in fair and sunny White Australia. The Man Who Crossed the Border writes as follows: — "When I was 14 years of age, my Mother went into Purga Mission, of her own accord, with five girl children and one boy, myself. Purga Mission is run by the Salvation Army, and I was there fifteen years.   "The Army Lassies put one of my sis- ters on starvation rations, an...

PROGRESS IN VICTORIA. Warrnambool Farm Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 July 1938

PROGRESS IN VICTORIA. Warrnambool Farm Scheme. We have received advice from Vic- toria that the Government intends to spend £3,000 on a scheme of farm settlement for Aborigines at Framling- ham.       The scheme provides for building de- cent houses, and allotting ten acres to each family for cultivation. These farms and houses will be at a small rent, and the proposal has the sup- port of many influential whitemen's organisations. Wake up New South Wales ! Wake up Queensland !   Victoria, which has only a handful of Aborigines left, is making a "death-bed" repentance and atonement for past crimes against Aborigines. "Farms for Aborigines," is our cry.

Tour of North Coast MANY SUCCESSFUL MEETINGS ASSOCIATION'S POLICY ENDORSED. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 July 1938

Tour of North Coast MANY SUCCESSFUL MEETINGS ASSOCIATION'S POLICY ENDORSED. During the month of June, the President (J. T. Patten), accom- panied by Messrs. McKenzie and Charters (Executive Committee members), made a "whirlwind tour" of North Coast Districts in New South Wales, organising and recruiting members for the Abo- rigines Progressive Association. Many successful meetings were held, and great enthusiasm was shown for the work of the Association. The tour was made possible by the kindness of Mr. R. T. Brown, of Syd- ney, in lending his motor-car and driv- ing the organisers on their tour of over 2,500 miles in three weeks. Petrol expenses were paid from the funds of the Association, and by sales of the "Abo Call", of which more than 2,000 copies were sold, spreading the     message far and wide, and rousing great support for our cause among the white community as well as among coloured brothers and sisters. A first list of members, many of whom join...
