OWEN MEAT PATENT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

OWEN MEAT PATENT Tn an article that we wrote to a, southern paper before being en gaged in the 'Central ian Advo cate,' it was suggested that in stead of going to a big expense of a freezing works, that in winter at least, there should bo some at tempt to have a slaughter yard out from Alice, and with a freigh ter plane fly the meat at say 10,000 feet altitude and deliver before morning to the larger towns that were suffering from drought, and in this way stop the loss entailed by dry country or distant droving, and give the towns mentioned a service that otherwise they would be unable to obtain. This article immediately brought a response from a Mr. Owen, of Adelaide, who came to see all about it. He, it seemed, had a patent, or was forming a company that would take out that patent, in which meat could be made useable for weeks after killing, and would endure any heat and still be good. We doubted this and were invited to go, with him and have a practical demonstra tion. So along w...

CORRECTION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

CORRECTION In our recent issue we emphas ised that not one single area of pastoralist land in the way of a lease was available. The Lands Department corrects us. There is one single one — it is approximate ly 45 miles west of Alice Springs on Ellerys Creek, and with an area of 320 square miles. We are very pleased to be able to make this correction. But the allotments and small farms are still not avail able and no one knows when they will be. Wo have repeatedly said wo do not blame the officials, it is defin itely the business of the Depart ment of Interior, and wo trust that the Administrator has made this clear to Mr. Johnson. We have sent Canberra the papers under request to the Librarian and he cannot say lie does not know. Our Member has also boon advised and it is also his business to keep this before the, Minister, who doubtless ib busy enough. But if his atten tion is drawn to it nntl he still evades the trouble, we ahnll want to know why.

TO THE EDITOR THE KOPEK RIVER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

TO THE EDITOR THE ROPER RIVER Sir. — On going through the pages of your paper last Saturday 7 notice where you give the credit ' of the discovery of the Roper River to Capt. Cadell, the date given being 18G5. This is an error as the late Dr. Ludwig Liechhardt discovered and named this glorious stream in 1845 v.liilst on his epic journey of explo. tion from the Darling Downs in Queensland to Port Estington in the Northern Territory, which he completed in that year. The river was named after John Roper, one of the mem bers of the party. Other Territory rivers discovered and named by him on this trip were the Calvert- Hodgson and Mac Vrthur, tho first two being named -fter members of the party, while i'e MacArthur was named after tw-- brothers of that name from Ca iden (near Sydney, N.S.W.), who helped fin ance the expedition. This I sup pose is only a slight matter, but it should be rectified, as it is a regrettable fact that too little is known of our early Australian history by the ...

PIONEER PICTURES "THEY WERE SISTERS"— NEXT WEDNESDAY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

PIONEER PICTURES 'THEY WERE SISTERS'— NEXT WEDNESDAY The story of 'They Were Sis ters' opens in the period just after the last war and shows the fash ions and amusements of the young people of that era. Four houses provide the background for the film. The first is a large, solid provincial business man's house of the type favoured in 1919. Here the three sisters live with their father and it is from this house that they are married. A house on Wimbledon Common was chosen for this house and the owner allow ed the Gainsborough unit to film outdoor scenes in the beautiful grounds. The other three houses in the film provide background for the lives and personalities of the three sisters. Lucy's house is the cottage type, gay rather casual and homely; Charlotte's house is sombre, dark and unfriendly; Vera's is expensively furnished, well decorated and without much personality.

MILLIONS MAY ROLL INTO TREASURIES HIGH METAL PRICES SWELL GOVERNMENT REVENUES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

-i MILLIONS MAY ROLL INTO TREASURIES 1 ? »v^« ? ' HIGH METAL PRICES SWELL GOVERNMENT REVENUES Recent increase in the overseas prices for metals, if I maintained, will add millions to Government revenue from | .Barrier mines. One estimate is that as much as £7,000,000 may be payable by the 'Big- Three'_the North, the South and Zinc Corporation ? on this year's earnings in taxation and royalty alone. Bulk of this will be in respect of income taxation, including war time company tax. But on the basis of current values over .i'2,000,000 would be a Budget windfall to the New South Wales Government in the form of royalty payments. These royalties are payable in the year following production, and are based on annual assessable profits before taxation. Kates paid at present are 4 p.c. on net assessable income up to £200,000; (i p.c. on the next i'200,000; and an additional 2 p.c. on each successive .£200,000 or part thereof. In 192S the three big . mines paid a total of only CJ 08,000 in ta...
