ALTUNGA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
ALTUNGA Many years before Alice Springs was known and the area sometimes called 'The Stuart,' an old gouger fossicking out that way for new worlds to 'conquer, found, probably to his surprise GOLD — that yellow metal that through all the ages has made history. All the kings and queens of the past have used it as ornaments and more murders have probably been done on its account than any other. This man first got indications by the usual costeening and when found converted to the gold dish. He evidently secured a good pan ning and got more and more each day until he realised at last he had found an Eldorado. What a thrill, how many of us who have done the same, but has felt the blood cours ing through our veins and saw a vision in the clouds of the wealth and power to come! Covering up carefully the signs that might be tray to someone else the great discovery, he came hurriedly back to the telegraph lines, and wires, red hot, were sent down south to tell the world what had happened, p...

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
Women's Column ? — :o: — CUP OF TEA CHAT BY 35 UE Kemember the proposed Drama tic Club we talked of last week? Before 'Sue' was into print the word 'proposed' was extraneous — there was, and is, an Alice Springs Dramatic Society. It came into existence that week. If you, like me, are a step behind, but nevertheless most interested, you will be welcome on ^Friday nights at the A.I.M. room. Mrs. De Vidas is President, and I feel sure, will give you any further par ticulars, such as the amount of subscription, who is Secretary, Treasurer, etc., and anything else you may wish to know. * I saw on the streets of Alice Springs recently, a woman on a bicycle. Not an unusual sight in a town where the Post Office is quite a distance from the baker's, and the baker's from the stores', and the stores from the paper ent. Upon her Read was a colour ful shady hat, the pointed, crown of which caught the eye. And always she seemed to be concen trated on keeping her 'steed' steady. On the handlebars ...

No Tax In The Northern Territory [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
No Tax In The Northern Territory The southern papers repeatedly have this heading: 'What shall we do with the Northern Territory ?' The answer is an easy one. For .100 years this Territory has lagged in development and population,, it has only a few thousand people for a population. Once it was, we understand, even offered to the Japanese, but its reputation was apparently so bad that even they refused it, and we can thank our lucky stars lor mat. There are still only a few thou cands of us and the same cry 'What shall -we do with it?' Here is an answer that will have the backing of all the Territorians, even the self .proposed BIG FOUR, in addition to a dark one dropped somehow from a bag of peanuts. For ten or fifteen years let our friends in Canberra advise the Taxation Department that no tax of any sort be levied on any per son in the Northern. Territory; to open ample land of allr sorts and everywhere required; and that this applies to the workers and trades men as well as to a...

WHITE RANGE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
WHITE RANGE Iii the early clays of the gold history of the Northern Territory, and about the time of the Altunga rush, the White, Hills were discov ered, and probably named after the man who took the areas up. It is a peculiar formation and the gold,'. instead of being in lode formation, occurs in pockets in which arsenic is a dominant fac tor. In those days many, of the miners were Chinese, who possibly came down from Pine Creek and adopted their method of making the smallest possible opening and crawling in ' and out, not unlike the methods adopted by rabbits. ? TVm iti1i1 nrr.urred in small Dock ets' and these were scooped out with a spoon and deposited in a i small bag and dragged painfully back to the surface. Naturally this method meant absorbing dust, much of which contained arsenic, a poison that acts slowly, but so surely, that it becomes impossible, unless treated in the early stages, from eventual death to the unfor tunate. Quite a nunibeY have been buried there under the...

DISTINGUISHED VISITORS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
DISTINGUISHED VISITORS The big plane which flew over Alice Springs yesterday en route to. England via India carried many distinguished visitors. The one in which this paper was interested was Mi.

We shall do our best to advance the interests of the Territory.
MUNICIPAL COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
MUNICIPAL COUNCIL — ;u; — The 'Centralian Advocate' still thinks that a municipal council is the best method of progress and that the committee be elected on a ratepayers base. We are doubt ing our ability to get anywhere, but same as the Administrator, we have to take what is passed at Canberra and hope for the best. It is worth a try and we should lose no time in trying out some method. This paper does not care which method, providing we fight for progress.

DEFLATION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
DEFLATION ? .Q. ? Yes, the Editor and all the staff arc rightfully deflated, we have the letter as published below, everything a sinner can be is placed to our debit. Naturally most of the expres sions of opinions are ours, but re flected from outside sources, they apparently do not reflect the opin ions of the gentlemen who signed this letter. We asked for criticism and we have got it where the turkey got the axe, and yet we are not penitent. Our views of the treatment of the aboriginals by placing them in compounds would be born out by inference to 90 per cent, of the graziers. We are unaware that any reference has been made with regard to halfcastes, except those gaoled in Adelaide, and would ask just when and in which paper this occurred. Grammatical errors, etc., are all acknowledged, and apologies for same when they occur. There is no misrepresentation of facts. Alice Springs is not pro gressing as it should, and not one of the gentlemen that have signed their names have so fa...

For the Children DONALD, GOOSE AND THE CACKLEBERRY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
For the Children — :o: — DONALD GOOSE AND THE CACKLEBERKY BY JULIA ANNE Once upon a time there was a gander and his wife, the goose. One day the goose laid an egg and after a long time it hatched out into a gosling. They called him Donald Goose,, partly after a film they had seen and partly because it was a family name. ' One day while out walking with his mother they came upon a nest of hen eggs, and although Donald had been an e^s himself, he had never actually seen one before. 'What are those white things in that nest, Mother,' he said. 'Cackleberries, son,' she answer ed, for she did not want her son to mix up geese eggs and hen eggs. 'Oh,' he said, because he didn't really understand. 'What are they foi,' he asked presently. *.--.- 'Well,' said his mother, 'Mrs. Hen sits on them and keeps them warm, and after a few weeks the-r hatch out into little yellow chick ens. She probably doesn't want them because she has left them there by themselves.' Thai; night Donald slept on the he...

THE BIG FOUR AND ANOTHER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947
THE BIG FOUR AND ANOTHER The Big Four have at lust ar rived. They immediately vetoed this paper and made a lot of nasty rude remarks, the viciousness of which speaks for itself. They were even rude enough to say our jokes were flat. Perhaps we may persuade them to group for a photo, then you really will see something to laugh at. The circus strong man i*orie out on horseback to challenge a far mer whose great strength had gained him a reputation. He en tered the farmyard, tied up his horse and approached the farmer. 'Hey,' he said, 'I've heard a lot about you, and have come a long way to see which is the better man.' Without answering, the farmer seized the intruder, hurled him over the fence into the road, and returned to his work. When the loser had recovered his breath, the farmer gi'owled : ''Have vou anything more to say?' 'No,' was the reply, 'but per haps you'll be good enough to throw me my horse.'
