DEAD KANGAROOS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 26 July 1947

DEAD KANGAROOS Mr. Gorry is having some trouble with kangaroo shooters. He says that they are being shot then placed in a truck or by some other method brought adjacent to the road, skinned there and left to rot. The result is most unpleasant for anyone passing the road and cer tainly very unhealthy. Now. you kangaroo shooting boys, just use that noddle of yours and be fair to the public and skin them at least 400 yards from the road. This is a bad advertisement for an entrance to our town and you, as well as others, cannot feel too comfortable about a thing of this sort. We are getting' from the travelling public a good name for a progressive town and I am sure you are not out to spoil it. So please cut the practice out.

NORTHERN DEVELOP MENT LEAGUE On July 24 a meeting of the Northern Development League was held in the , Court House in Alice Springs,' at which the attendance was good. It will be remembered that diu1 ing the last 12 months very little has been heard of this body and tho general idea was that it may be preferable to wind it up and start something more local, so to tost the feelings of the commun ity this meeting was called. Messrs. Bell, Nelson, Driver, Dodd, Gregory and Ward were in favor of a motion that the League be wound up. An amendment, supported by Messrs.' E. J. Connellan and G. Brandt, opposed the motion and gave their reason why they con sidered the League's life should be extended. After a general dis cussion the motion was defeated and it was decided to call a gen eral meeting of present and past members on August 15. . The meeting then proceeded to elect a temporary committee of seven, the committee elected were: Mrs. J. Donnellan, Messrs. E. J. Connellajn, J. Driver, D...

CALLING ALL CITIZENS ! [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 26 July 1947

CALLING ALL CITIZENS ! Mr. G. A. .lohannsen is to be highly commended for his action in convening a meeting of all citizens for Thursday, August 7. It is to be hoped that he collects a bumper house. Everyone has or should have the welfare of his home town at heart, and it is only by mass meetings of this sort that the progress of a town depends. From this meeting should spring a Progress Society or a resurrec tion of thn Northern Territory League under a new name. What we definitely do want and this point cannot be stressed too strongly is that under whatever name it arrives, that we do some thing for Alice Springs that will make this tho central city of Aus tralia, that we make sure that in future we have gardens in every spare corner of Alice Springs, comfortable seats for visitors, con veniences adjacent to our streets and in general everything con structive should be carefully thought out and submitted to a committee that also should be carefully selected of both men and women w...
