SHADE TREES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

SHADE TREES It is surprising that so far very few cedar trees have shown that winter is here, very few leaves have dropped and generally this month or early in the next they should be pruned. This also ap plies to grape vines which are dropping their leaves but are mighty slow about- it. The pep perinas do* not lose their leaves and are still a magnificent color ing of green. They are an ideal western tree, but are greedy in collecting all the ingredients that go to make the earth fruitful for other plants.

BIG CATTLE YARDING Values Advance For Quality [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

BIG CATTLE YARDING Values Advance For Quality The largest cattle yarding of the year was offered to im proved competition from all .section of the trade at the Abattoirs market on Monday, . but the total of 2,005 com prised a very plain and un attractive selection. The yard ing was a marked increase on last week's total of 1,685, but comprised chiefly station steers and bullocks in light to medium condition, and of plain appearance. Only very few station cattle were suitable for top quality lines and in many cases were barely in useful ti'ade order. There was a keen demand for quality bullocks and well-finished lightweight types. In contrast to the general pood quality of the offering a very well-bred line of 41 paddock fattened quality bul locks sold on account of L. J. and W. E. M. Staker, Quorn, averaged £24/10/-. In comparison with last week's market very few calves and heifers were available, and selling rates for these types, and also the station cattle in only useful con diti...

TOURIST GUIDE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

TOURIST GUIDE Numerous reports are coming in for the tourist guide that this ofHco is preparing. However, be fore it is launched, there are many blocks to be made and many more photos to collect.

The guide will be placed in all the Australian libraries and touring companies, and will as much as possible be Territory scenes.

TO THE EDITOR THE TERRITORY'S DEVELOPMENT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

TO THE EDITOR THE TERRITORY'S DEVELOP MENT Sir. — Firstly — new ari'ivals to be induced to settle in the Northern Territory should be made to feel they are wanted. Sport of all kinds that has a sponsor should be allowed. Bookmaking should be legalised ; a two-year plan be organised for mining. Batches of 50 men interested in prospecting and mining should be paid the basic wage and set to prospecting in likely areas, suitable trucks, cooks and water joeys be provided for them. Each man to peg the ground he requires and be kept at that until it is tried or until he wants a change of ground. A timekeeper be employed to keep times — the working time to be 40 hours a week. All prospectors be tax free. If a man makes a find it be his to hold or to sell. ' He would then cease to be an assisted or aided man. Tools, tents to be pro vided free, also accommodation,, food, etc. This would develop into a peace army of prospectors finan ced entirely by the Federal Gov ernment. Their share of the ...

HERMANSBURG [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

HERMANSBURG Mr. Gross, of Hermansburg, called in to see us as every one outback does, and he speaks of an interesting experiment at Her mansburg. To start good abos off on the right foot they adopted a system of giving five selected boys 40 head of cows and one bull each. These are run with cattle belong ing to the other boys on the same reserve. Each boy has a brand of his own and they muster and brand at stated periods on the community system. During the first term while the calves are growing, the Mission keeps the boys and their families in food. When the time arrives and the proceeds come back, they will have to feed and fend for themselves Gradually the mission hopes to start ofl* more boys and to extend the scheme. What Mr. Gross is proud of is that on Monday they sent along to the market a nuniber of fat bullocks, which are in excellent condition. Tho scheme was start ed only three years ago and every credit is duo to the mission for something constructive. Tho Editor is goi...

CHANGE OF SEASONS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

CHANGE OF SEASONS Are seasons changing ? It is seldom that in June and July that, rain comes to this centre, but we have had a lot of small rains and as we write this article (July 5) the rain is falling smartly and apparently means business. This sort of weather on the plains of Queensland would in dry times mean heavy losses in sheep, but Queensland also has had good falls and stock are in perfect condition and can stand up to any amount of cold.

WHAT IS A BIT ? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

WHAT IS A BIT f Since last issue it has been asked to an article 'What is a vbit ?' so looking1 up the Australian slang dictionary we find as follows: This word is derived from the word Bitzer — bits — bit. Now bit is a piece broken off some object * probably one not much use. * Bits are more broken objects, broken perhaps from the same piece but maybe different ? '^apes and sizes. Say for instance i ir. A bitzer^ is a conglomeration of those pieces put together to make a very poor composition for the original article. Another definition of a bitzer is a canine whose pedigree is most uncertain, in other words a mon grel and a- yapp t, such as you see following our ab; i along the out skirts of our tow .*. If for instance y, 'r friend says what do you thi..':' of those bitzers ? you would ai. once under stand to what he refers. However, a returned digger knowing the terrific efforts of these in tho last war, would describe them in more precise language The teacher was endeavouring to...

THE MINISTER FOR THE INTERIOR [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

THE MINISTER FOR THE INTERIOR It will be a pleasing* feature of the day that by the time this article goes to print, the Hon. V. H. Johnson, Minister for the Interior, will be in Alice Springs. We have now the opportunity of putting before him our wants and ideas of how we think the needs of the Territory can best be served. The 'Centralian Advocate' has never had the pleasure or the ?honor to meet Mr. Johnson, but from many of our friends who have, he is said to be particularly interested in doing the best he can and shows that he is open to 7-eason and likes plain speaking. Naturally he is definite in his ideas. The Member for the Territory lias not so far got much from that Department, and it is easy to see why. As mentioned in these pages Mr. Blain's approach to Ministers is not calculated to assist, when shortly afterwards that same Minister may be asked to do cer tain things for our Representative. We believe that constructive criticism is good, providing it stops at that and ...

DARWIN CATHOLIC BALL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

DARWIN CATHOLIC BALL In the presence of GOO people, 21 debutantes were presented to His Honour, the Administrator, and Mrs. Driver, at the Catholic Palais on Monday evening, June 80. Gay buntings and massed bougain villia and many colored lights made the palais look very festive and gay. The debutantes all dressed in white and carrying pastel pink posies entered the hall on the arms of their escorts from the three forces — Navy, Army and Air Force. After being presented they circled the floor dancing the 'Pride of Erin' charmingly and gracefully. After the presentation dance, when everyone was on the floor, the gay and lovely frocks of the women dancers made an attractive foil for the white frocked debutantes. A really delightful supper was served durinjc the evening and great praise is deserved by all who helped to make the presenta tion ball the undoubted success that it was.

OUR MEMBER'S REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

OUR MEMBER'S REPORT We have received from Mr. Blain a number of Hansard cut tings and letters dealing with his services to the Territory. They are too numerous to print in full, but in our next issue we will give the essential points he stresses, and will give all credit for any thin or done for the Territory or what he has tried to do. We are non-political and our only request before people ask us to publish letters is that are* they prepaid subscribers. We can then consider them part of a progress association that should have a say in the method of running our paper. But always only if it is for progress and does not abuse anyone. Mr. Blain is a paid sub scriber.
