PROGRESS ASSOCIATION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947

PROGRESS ASSOCIATION It is high time that Alice Springs called a meeting to form a pro gress association, a body of men speaks with more power than sin gle individuals, and the want of that voice is noticeable every day. There are scores of things that want doing in this area and we could have an expression of opin ion. Many meetings over the pas$ years have been called with ali, ways the same result — the. official ' vote being too strong for the peo^ pie outside. These officials wei*#l **. in a position to vote themselveil ;- fabric collapses and nothing if ,- '.' done.. This is not disrespectf u| - to officials most of whom are our personal friends, but the position comes to this, that- many are not willing to act contrary* to their official heads and the whole busi-- -' ness collapses for want of support. Quite a bit of this is reflected in the suggested winding up of thi Development League. It is sugr- ' gested (not by our staff this time) that a meeting be held in whicH only h...

HOSTELS AT ALICE SPRINGS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947

HOSTELS AT ALICE SPRINGS — :u: — When three hostels were contem plated for Alice Springs, and two storey ones at that, and only for the accommodation of tlie children, from near and far, parents wished to avail themselves of. the excellent teaching afforded by the first-class 'teachers that Alice Springs possessed. A pleasing1 feature of these hostels for children is that they are under chui'ch guidance ? and consequently ai-e'not allowed to loam the streets. Parents can -rest assured of good health, good conditions, good schooling right to the leaving school ages. Music is also available — they can have piano, violin and singing. Each hostel is capable of boarding ap proximately 50 children, so with oil tliocn .?lflvnnf nn'os. is it nnv 'wonder that from many places Within 1000 miles applications are coming in from more and more . families. Tt is only a matter of time when the same enquiries will come from the south, so that their children can enjoy the privileges of good health co...

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, JULY , 1947. IRRIGATION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, JULY. 5, 19^7. IRRIGATION Instead of the seven millions thut- are in Australia — and it is doubtful whether the coming cen sus will show any improvement in numbers — there 'should bo at least 70,000,000; there is ample room, there is ample land, and if this silly system of strikes would cease, unlimited work and ex por'.rc from a land that is just bursting with opportunities, would or could equal anything the world has to offer. Unfortunately, this country has a complex nature. We have still that the majority of the world has suffered before we can realise what starvation and general devas tation means. Instead of grabbing the world's market with both hands and procuring a lead that would be unsurpassible, we are fritter ing our chances away, checking industries and stopping our chances to export. Buying from other lands we should be manu facturing ourselves. Further than that, we are trying and this is a good feature to at tract immigration to our shor...

DEVIL'S MARBLES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947

DEVIL'S MARBLES ^ One of the most iteresting parts of the trip from Alice to Darwin are the huge round granite stones that cover an area of many square miles on the road just before Tennant Creek is reached. This is another of the more recent eruptions since our little island of Australia was formed, and as Australia is considered probably the oldest in the world of today, this miscalled recent erup tion may easily have happened millions of years ago; still, there are older parts in the vicinity. The area under observation possioiy came irom a lower ooptn, but just why the formation arose in bulk and resulted in these enor mous round stones, is not clear to the wri'ten Still, there .'they are, Inillions, perhaps billions, of tons of them. In the many centuries of time in which they first saw the skyline, they were undoubtedly forced up to great heights together with lava and other ingredients that go to form mountains.

TO THE EDITOR MICA INDUSTRY—1946 [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947

TO THE EDITOR MICA INDUSTRY— 1946 Sir.— Generally speaking the pulse of the mict field today may be summarised as follows : — 1. Miners are .dissatisfied with the price of mica as fixed by Prices Regulation Order No. 1488. 2. Miners claim that a definite ? market for a period of years is essential in order to permit of mine development. Figures supplied in ' schedules herewith indicate that, with .few exceptions, miners are not earning wages on the field. Oversea prices are known to them and it is claimed that Indian shippers are receiving much higher prices for mica than those ruling locally, this notwithstanding the laci UlIlU lauui cuituii/iuiin jii mum are not comparable with those of Australia. Their claim that prices in Aus tralia are lower than elsewhere is correct. To illustrate this point it might be mentioned that during' war * years this department pur chased supplies through the Anglo American Mission, and whilst pre sent prices covering all classifica tions and grades o...

THE CITY OF DREAMS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947

THE CITY OF DREAMS — :o:— Among the most colorful legends of the far west aboriginals of Cen tral Australia is that related to the City of Dreams, a name wo de rive from an unpronounceable tri bal term. The natives are very secretive of this place fearing that, as 'with all their other relics which have been disclosed to the white man, this would be the last of it. By their silence they hope to stave off what must inevitably one day bo oblivion. How the Wanderer came to hear of it occurred in this way. During a tribal vendetta in the early yO's out on the desert near The Gran ites, a Tuggamurra (Chief) .sought refuge from a host of enemies by hiding himself in the gold pros pectors' camp. The Wanderer saved his life by scaring the chief's pursuers off with threat of gun shots. Later, when the grateful Tuggamurra had eaten, he told of the following legend which, he declared, went back 'properly long time, longa my grandfather's grandfather long way.' Central Australia, the old Tug ga...
