WORKS and HOUSING [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947
WORKS and HOUSING Mi1. Lemmon arrived here on his way to Darwin. We were un tble to contact him — hearing too late of his arrival. Probably with Mr. A. R. Driver, the Administra tor, will talk over our problems. The Administrator has been to Canberra and the news over the air states that there is to be no Darwin town building until the housing problem is .overcome. There is, however, to be a large hostel built at Darwin, so we hope that in fairness he has arranged to have one built in Alice Springs where the housing trouble is just as, or more, acute.

TANTALITE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947
TANTALITE The news that a long length lode of tantalite has been discovered north of Brocks Creek and running towards the Daly, is particularly good news. Tantalite, known as the mystery metal, has most im portant uses, and there is at pre sent a world shortage. A recent export from Western Australia of two tons was hailed as the largest sent from Australia at any one time. During the war an Ameri can plane was flown from America to Australia for just 10 cwt. This is just another proof of the im mense possibilities of our great North, that only now is getting the publicity it deserves.

APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947
, APPRECIATION ? — :o:— — Our paper wishes to give ap preciation to the wonderful ser vice that the local G.P.O. is giving us. Our Editor is a crotchety old devil, who loses his temper at a minutes notice and the unfor tunate at the other end is likely to get earache at any old time when listening in. But the tele phone girls just laugh and do his bidding — like the little ladies they decidedly must be. Even when his call just says, give me so and so, no mention of a number, they mildly' put him on. instead of ask ing what the telephone book is for. God bless you, my angels, I hope to meet you aloft some day. WHAT did you say ? Neither .does the service end thei'e. The whole staiF does any old job with a smile and going to our local post office is like going home. We congratulate the Post master and his methods — it was not always just this way.
GOLF SEASON OPENS AT DARWIN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947
GOLF SEASON OPENS AT DARWIN The Darwin Gold Club held their opening day on Monday, June 1G, when a goodly company of golfers assembled to play on the links, which had been set in order by industrious working-bees.

The club has been in recess since 1941, so had. much leeway to make up.

REVERSALS OF FORM IN THE ALDERMAN CUP A.R.C. Birthday Carnival [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947
REVERSALS OF FORM IN THE ALDERMAN CUP A.R.C. Birthday Carnival There was a striking reversal of form at Victoria Park Racing Club on Monday last by Money Moon, Kinder Gold and The Monk. Both Money Moon and The Monk broke/ new records and were fea tures at the final day. The Monk especially made himself a hero — left dead at the post he ran wide and won easily. Naturally there would be comments, but reversal of form is after all a matter of the digestive organs of the horse, if he is well he does his best, if something upsets him, he runs sour. But punters will not accept this explanation. There were two close finishes and the placings were disputed by the crowd, but the owners took the verdict like good sports do.
