CATTLE FOR SOUTH [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

CATTLE FOR SOUTH i^ach day sees mobs of prime catLle trucking for the south, rail ways are working overtime and officials here dointr theirb est. How ever, there is one thing our rail way department must alter. Drov ers travelling down with the:;o cattle have an arduous and un pleasant task, at every stopping place they must no matter whether rain or cold, get out; race along the trucks and see that no beast is down, at the shrill whistle of the engine to race back and jump often on a moving train and get what spell and comfort they can. Just here is what they do not get, their carriage is a miserable affair with a hard dusty bench, a poor light, no sleeping accommodation, no sanitary or washing appliances. This is totally unfair to men who feed the nation. Were a black fellow given such accommodation up North, Charles Duguid or his friends would spill gallons of ink writing us up. Yes, Mr. Commis sioner, these men want a sleeping berth, a table, cutlery and stove, also sanitary arr...

ZONAL TAXATION QUESTION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

ZONAL TAXATION QUESTION What is contended is an unjusti fied difference in the 'remote area' taxation deduction allowance for the Federal Taxation Zones A and B in the Northern territory is at present exercising the atten tion of 'victims.' Zone A enjoys an allowance of 15/- in the income before tax instalments start to operate. For Zone B it is 7/6. The objection is taken that it is unfair to employeees in Alice Springs to have the zonal bound ary fixed 12 miles short of the tr»-'--n and so deprive its wage earn enrs of the benefit. Living costs and conditions in Alice Springs, it is considered, bear too close a re lationship to warrant the anomaly.

GRAPES IN CENTRALIA A Future Industry [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

GRAPES IN CENTRALIA A Future Industry One of these days, enthusiasts loi centralia maintain, the full possibilities of viticulture here will be realised and exploited. In the homes and private gardens of Alice Springs there 'is ample evi dence of what can be done in the way of growing grapes of excel lent quality, almost two months earlier than the grape growing areas of the south. Table grapes making the first of the season in any market re turn high values. And you don't have to wait for any miracle of rrigation. By way of illustration to this claim of Territorians, the South Australian Horticultural author ities, in reporting on the recent ?season made special reference to the non-irrigated areas. The effect of the rain which spoiled so much of the currant crop else v.*hero, was very much less in these areas, while other types of grapes suffered only negligible damage or none at all. The bunches had filled excellently and a vintage well above normal is assured from these district...

Although the Alice Springs Committee has not functioned for some time a meet ing is likely soon at which some endeavor will be made to further the plan for utilising1 the area tentatively suggested for a museum site. Mr. C. P. Mountford, widely known scientist and photographer, who spent some months in Ameri co, and who has demonstrated a close personal interest in Centra lia has advised the Committee to concentrate its efforts on the region. Apart from the collection of relics not only in respect to ex ploration and natural history there s a need for regular meetings of the Society at which papers could be submitted or provided through veteran Territorians. In this way there could be built up, as has been done in other centres, valu able archives of vital une to his torians and others. One documentary film has a...

TENNANT CREEK FLOTATION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

TENNANT CREEK FLOTATION It is refreshing to know that the Tennant Creek Goldmines Ltd. br.= been so quickly, not only filled but oversubscribed. Wav Km.-!- in VX\2 | his field like others in the Territory, was turned down by the Ihen know-all geologists as worth less, one even said that the North ern Territory would never produce anything in the value of minerals and for years in spite of continued f-'pccess, maintained his ideas. How wrong time has proven those gentlemen is shown by the heavy returns of gold from all parts of the Territory, not to mention the Wolfram Tantalite and many other valuable products. The fact that our tax commis sioner is waiting impatiently out side both our front and back doors. is one reason why that amount of money is so readily forthcoming. Mining is not taxed in the Terri tory as far as Income Tax is con cerned, nevertheless, one does not escape the insatiable jaws of the taxing octopus, he is as ever wait ing impatiently for you to make good, then ...
