DARWIN R.S.S. & A.I.L.A. DARWIN, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

DARWIN R.S.S. & A.I.L.A. DARWIN. Wednesday. If the R.S.S. & A.I.L.A. candi date, Mr. Broiigh Newell, is not the winner in the Ugly Men's Com petition, the fault will not lie with tlie League, Tiiey are Daitnng all out for him, every man jack of, them. The barbecue on Mendill Beach last Sunday night was a gay affair. There were sing-songs, round the camp-fires, and the grilled steak disappeared like magic ; even the bare shin-bone of the barbecued animal was raffled for ten shillings a's a souvenir of the occasion. On King's Birthday night, the' League gave a reception to the Federal President, Eric Millhouse Esq., K.C., at the R.S.L. Hall. Judging by the volume of sound proceeding from the hall when the well known soldiers' songs were sung and the laughter and the cheers that interspersed the talks (they seemed far too inter esting to be called speeches), it was a gala night for the returned men.

TOURISTS' GUIDE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

TOURISTS'. GUIDE *'The Centralian Advocivcj' is having printed, for tho use of the tourist trade, a small booklet that will describe every portion of ..the. road to' Darwin, just what to look for, and at what mileage it is to be looked for. We wish to stop that racing against each other, that the pre sent touring coaches are doing. Many touristr. complain thivfc they hear of places that they wir.li to look at and explore just too late, or after these places have boon passed. We think that if they had^ as it were, a programme of what is available, and the' portion of the road where certain happen ings occur, it would make the trip much more inte7*esting, and they have a topic of conversation all the way. We also hope to include some story of each place as they go along, such as the massacre at various telegraph stations, which were in use so many years ago. They can vision by looking at the old homes just what the people i'elt like when the alarm was given and the inmater, knew unles...

DARWIN'S DOINGS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

DARWIN'S DOINGS — -:o: — Bily, an aboriginal, received treatment at the local hospital for head, injux'ies, which, so he alleged, had been inflicted by another abo with a torch. The police investi gated the occurrence, and discov ered that Billy had bashed him self on the head three times with a rock, in order to evoke his wife's' sympathy. Apparently, she had been giving the 'glad eye' to other blacks, and Billy became jealous in consequence, and decided to soften her heart by bashing his head. The police are now remov ing Billy to his own tribal area, and warning him not to return to Darwin any more. What one will do for love ! His Excellency, Senor La* Ruaz, Governor of 'Portuguese Timor, to gether with Group Captain C. C. Eaton, Australian Consul in Timor, passed through Darwin this week on an Australian-wide tour. Frank Clune, the well-known writer, also passed through en route to Lon don. Three men, named William An drews, Thomas Pearce and Ronald Condie, were arrested and cha...

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, JUNE 21, 1947 War Declared [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, JUNE 21, 1947 War Declared This is a heading that may, with the present disturbed state of the world, face its at any moment from iho presses of the world. Everything indicates that an ultipvitum must be passed to Rus :nv unless she stops at once her : ctions in grabbing and swallowing one bv one the small powers, that ab-oruly frightened, is doubtful which side of the fence to sit. Already some have definitely gone over and are included in the Rus sian iron curtain, while a number of others are wavering. Her actions with Hungary speaks for itself. A nation that gives to it self the right to direct action so that the politicians in power can be dislodged at a moment's notice and one to suit ^Russia put in its place, is plain writing on the wall, and is too realistic of Hitler's policy to doubt what their ultimate ends are. Bulgaria is next, and is already in trouble. Greece, wnile still firm, has to fight the guerillas inspired and assisted from outside...

FROM ALICE SPRINGS TO MARGUERITE RIVER, W.A. [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

FROM ALICE SPRINGS TO MARGUERITE RIVER, W.A. The horse mortality in the far North-West of the Kimberlies in Western Australia is so groat that repeatedly horses have to be taken from the Alice Springs area and driven some 700 miles or more to relieve the shortage of working, horses at various stations. Just such trip was recently taken by a well-known half-caste, Ben Walkington, and a block showing him. and the horses are shown on I thin page. Owing to shortage of water on the track, it is altogether a test of the stamina of the horses and the men who take these haz- ardous trips. Let us toll you all about it. To the old pioneer, he will laugh at it being called a hazard, he in many cases has done equally hard or possibly harder trips as all in the year's work, he who opened the country originally did not get any credit then or after. Nevertheless it is a danger- ous trip, especially for the horses and one that undertaken only a   few weeks previous meant a loss of some...

A BAD DREAM [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

A BAD DREAM Someone told me that he had a bad dream a few night ago. In that dream he brought a party of would-be settlers to the urrcat North. They wanted to live at Alice Springs, to build nice com fortable homes, to get land so that their children would help to open up these huge areas and assist to keep the possible invaders out. Amonp; them were many who wanted to start vineyard.;, grow fruit and live in this land of para dise. They arrived at the railway from where they could see nice homely railway cottages with a small park attached, in which the children played among heavy laden, bushy trees, some were swimming about in a green-lined swimming pool, while the happy mothers chatted beneath the shade of the pepperina and cedar They were met at the station by some members of the Progressive Club, who, after seeing that they were put up contentedly at the np-^.o-date hotels and excellent hostels, etc, arranged a trip around the town. They were amazed at the beauty of the gardens...
