CRICKET TENNANT CREEK versus ALICE SPRINGS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

CRI CKE'T TENNANT- CREEK versus ALICE SPRINGS One of the many games that we hope to sec- in the cricket arena was held on our local sports ground on Saturday between Ten nant Creek and Alice Springs. Jt looked very even at the first innings and anyonoa game, but at the finish Alice Springs drew away and won by a margin of 43 runs, tht: cut-up state of the field help ing finite a little towards the fin ish. In reference to this field there is room for lots of criticism. The wiclcet with a concrete foundation is apt to make the ball rise too high, a7id this is always conductive to easy catches, and we note that some of the Queensland country pitches govern that height with some flexible packing, which lowers the flight of the ball. The field war; in a very bad state indeed, and something must be done about this in future matches. Yes, there is quite a lot to be done before our young ideas can be made good cricketers. First and most important is that the field is too far away from our ...

GOLD PRICE RISE EXPECTED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

GOLD PRICE RISE EXPECTED NEW YORK, Thursday. — An in crease from 178/- to 200/- an ounce is .widely expected in the price of gold, according to Mr. Joseph Milne, joint managing dir ector of New Union goldfields of Johannesburg, who arrived from South Africa recently. He said trold was being hoarded in Britain and Canada in expecta tion of such a move.. Tho rise qxpected as per mes sage above reflects itself in what ia happening today in Australia. How can the Government expect additions to gold industry when the prices given here are quite 50 per cent below world's parity. 178/- per ounce in America is the equivalent of 8!K-/- in Australia, because the American dollar is worth 8/fi in Australia. With America about to pay 200/ our gold here should bring 400/-, #20 per ounce, whereas we got £10/15/6, less Gold Tax 17/72, less 2i per cent, on Royalty Tax and 2& per cent. Payroll Tax, and then are told we are not taxed. This is just plain stealing on a huge scale. The nation wan...

For the Children THE HEN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

For the Children THE HEN - BY JULIA ANNE All along the farmyard gables the swallows sat a-row, twittering uneasily to one another, telling of many things, but thinking only of Summer and the South, for Autumn was afoot and the North Wind waitintr. . And, suddenly, one day they wei'e all quite gone. And every one spoke of the swallows and the South. 'I think I shall go south myself next year,' said a hen. And the year wore on and the swallows came back again, and the year wore on and they sat again in the gables, and all the poultry discussed the departure of the hen. And very early one morning, the wind being from the north, the swallows all soared suddenly and ? felt the wind in their wings ; and a strength came upon them, and a strange old knowledge and a more than human faith ; and, fly ing high, they left the smoke of our cities and small remembered eaves, and saw at last the huge and homeless sea, and, steering by gi*ey sea-currents, went south ward with the wind. And, going so...

LARGE RIVERS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

LARGE RIVERS Very little is known of our large rivers of the North — the Oi*d, Vic toria, Daly, Adelaide, Roper, and McArthur. Many of these can be travelled by motor launches for long distances. Along .them the scenery is just wonderful. Fish ing — hundreds of different species'. Shooting — every class of ducks, pigeons, geese, colored and almost unknown' varieties of birds. Along the banks all sorts of game from the huge buffalo down to river ruts. It is a sportsman's paradise, not excelled anywhere in the world. It has dense jungles with also the danger element of huge snakes up to 25 ft. in length, and thousands of crocodiles. The visitoi* can, along the beach es, see shells not known south. Huge turtles of unbelievable size, millions of large size eatable crabs. The islands1, if the Native Af fairs let you on them, are 'full of friendly natives, and it is hard to imagine a more delightful holi day. So much absolute, nonsense has been written by the flying traveller who has neve...
