DARWIN AND ALICE SPRINGS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
DARWIN AND ALICW SPRINGS The whole of the Northern Ter ritory should have the one aim, that is the advancement of the Territory, and for this object these two main towns should work hand in hand.

Richardson) said that he was amazed at the results achieved. The amenities provided were far better than could be found in most city dwell ings. The secretary of the Legio...

HIGHER PRICE FOR GOLD ? Industry Due For Increase [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
HIGHER i'KICE FOR GOL.D ? industry Due For Increase Miners and prospectors consid er a better deal is due for those . engaged in the industry in the Northern Territory in the matter of gold price. Recent allegations regarding the black market in gold throughout Australia, including West Australia and the Northern Territory, where it is said £20 or more an ounce was paid by black marketeers, lend significance to prices at which gold changed hands at sterling equivalent in various countries lately. These were Paris £44, India £20 (import duty £2/10/-), Hong Kong £16/6-, Egypt £15/6/-, Turkey £11/8/-, Mexico bars £9/14/- coins £11/6/-. London (official) £8/12/-. In re lation to exchange and the Aus tralian pound, of course, this Lon don price would be neare_r_£17. Present Australian price of S10/15/6 an ounce fine gold is subject to a tax of 17/71 per ounce and a royalty of threepence in the £ which with payroll tax of 25 per cent, brings the taxation to approximately one guinea per ou...

ACCOMMODATION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
ACCOMMODATION — ? — *\j ? ? The urgent need of accommoda tion is stressed very much at the present time by the influx of tourist visitors. On last train no less than 250 arrivals, 70 per cent, of which were tourists. Hotels and boarding houses had no chance whatsoever of accommodating any part of them and but for the var ious tin sheds which are part of the Army overhang and now used by the various tourist companies it would have meant a national campout, not that this would hurt anyone, but it is bad for a young city that wants these visitors to see our scenic beauties and de lightful climate. The want of more hotels, an extra large hostel is getting more apparent every day. We 'have unlimited timber in this great North of ours, all the material for cement plus a mountain of ochre ? for the paint industry. We are waiting merely for the man with vision to start these in dustries and the goodwill of the Government to give permission to get along with the job. Alice Springs will come ...

MR. JACK KENNETT RETIRED April A'h saw the retirement of Mr. Ja-k K^nnoit from the North ern Territory Police Force which hf joined In 1927.

He came to Alice Springs in lO'.'.'l and has been in this area ever since. It is doubtful whether there is a man in the Territory ciuite so well known or who can claim so many friends. His numerous witty storie? of our great outback al ways provides him with an un limited and attentive audien^o. Jack, like all Torrortorians, rnh not leave the Territory, and has now taken over the management of the R.S.L. Club, Alice Springs.

A GOOD BANKER AND A GOOD TOWNSMAN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947
A GOOD BANKER AND A GOOD TOWNSMAN It is with much regret that we learn that the Manager of the Commonwealth Bank, Mr. Virgil King, has been transferred to other parts as travelling manager. As a banker he acted as adviser when wanted and was everybody's friend. So much so that a petition signed by almost everyone in Alice Springs was forwarded to headquarters asking that he might be allowed to stay in the same position. This unfortunately Mas met by a refusal from the Gov ernor of the Bank and the trans fer stands. Mr. King during his stay of some years became very popular, not only on account of his bright per sonality, but his unflagging work in any venture that had for its uitimntp afm the Interests of th» eommunttv. We a?T ia\n in vfeli !?* n.!.m tne be8t of luck and that he will as we know eventually re turn to AT?^e Snrfncrs.
