Promises were made before the men went to the war that on arrival home there would be houses, However, there is ler,s excuse: for us than most. We, with the exception of Dam '?? and a fow northern towns, never k:,ow what war could do, ns ;i' of ,-ur houses wore damaged, or. i* herds were not depleted, our gcod were- not stolen, none of the ravage:: of war that made Europe a cemetery and a desolation. Why then have not promses been ful filled to save discontent ? That housing is a very serious matter, needs no amplifying. Those men and women wishing; to be married or those who mar ried since the war are feeling very perturbed about it. They doubt less visaged nice cosy homes, with the kiddies playing around, gar dons growing all the good things of life, envisaged the improve ments that they could make in the week-end to show their pride of home ...

AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 19 July 1947
AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES ? tf ^ « (By an Old Sportsman) The following story is reprinted from the 'Austra- lasion, dated February 25, 1899. We are indebted to Mr. Doug Boerner, of Alice Springs, for the loan of the cutting. s I have been a colonist of South Australia for sixty years, and claim to know something about its original inhabitants, human and otherwise. There are not a few haughty-minded white men who afVeci: the most supreme contempt for the so-called 'niggers' of this vast inland, but I am bold to affirm that the Australasian aborigines are far better informed in respect to his immediate surroundings and ?requirements,- and better able to fight the battle of life than are the men who despise his knowledge, education, and abilities. The white man uses gunpowder, twine, matches, and a hundred and one other articles of which he knows not the composition, nor could he manufacture one of them; but the blackfellow knows all about his weapons, utensils, food, etc., and can and doe...

MR. BLAIN REPLIES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 19 July 1947
MR. BLAIN REPLIES I am delighted to think you have set up a paper in Central Australia, and on reading the souvenir copy and the one following1 that you were g-ood enough to send me, 1 have formed the opinion that this is going to be a paper oi quite a different tone to others. I hope that you are able to maintain the standard that has been indicated by these first two publications. 1 am enclosing a cheque for £1 for an annual subscription as I feel that this is a paper that I can peruse as an Australian and not have to show a loyalty to a foreign country greater than that I feel necessary to show to my own to be able to read it. I was glad to think that you were so candid in the second para graph of your letter as to tell me that the people out there think I am rather 'truculent in Parlia ment.' Consulting my pocket dic tionary T find that the v/ord, 'truculent' means 'ferocious, in clined to fight.' So you see that you have paid me the highest com pliment that any member for the N...

Dear Sue, Do you nejylcct your incoming correspondence, or is it that I am the first to put my thoughts on paper ? Before doing so, I would like to say, Sue, that you are ap preciated — you are neither Madame Wu nor Doi'othy Dix, but just Northern Territory Sue, and therefore one of us. As you remain the mysterious Sue, I do not know if you are an employer of native help or not, but no doubt you read something on the subject of the amount of pay such help receives, whether you were here at the time of the controversy or not.

We are pleased to meet Mr. L. Davey, who, with his mother, is on a, visit to Alice Springs. He likes the country as do most others and will tell us more about it as he sees more of it. Two Victorians came along to see us, Mr. R. Barnewall, from Thornton and his friend Mr. G. Sutcliffe, of Alexander. The Edi— tor knew the name well of the latter and suggested that now he has left the English cricket team that he join up and play for Alice Springs. We want to tune those Tennant boys up, they are getting just too good. They say they liked the trip, the climate, and the friends they met here.
