A COSMOPOLITON TOWN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 26 July 1947

A COSMOPOLITON TOWN | Darwin is what may' safely bo called a eosmopoliton town. At one time it had the name of being the second mixed fraternity of the world — only beaten bj^ Singa pore. Before the war one could see Japanese, Javanese, Malay, Chinese, Hindoos, Italians, and most of all countries, as well as our own aboriginals, halfe-castes, and many other in between mix tures. However, America is made up with the same mixture and it makes a virile nation.

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 26 July 1947

Women's Column CUl» OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Good afternoon all ! What with ono thing and another this has been an unusually busy week for everyone. Deputations right and left waiting on the Minister or the Administrator, more and more tourists, and a few special picnics and gatherings have all contri buted to the hustle and bustle. You my friends seem to have en joyed meeting and hearing Mrs. John McKwin; she has many in terests in common with us, not least being C.W.A. activities. Have you walked or driven the racecourse way lately ? 1 was out last week and was pleased to see the growth of the grass planted some months ajyo. We should come home from the August race meeting with less dust than usual, because by then the stand area will almost qualify to be classed 'The Lawns.' * IVIisa Dash came in with her usual flourish yesterday and waved a cutting from the 'Advocate' at me as she talked excitedly about learning to do something the right way.

ROAD FROM ALICE TO QUEENSLAND [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 26 July 1947

ROAD FROM ALICE TO QUEENSLAND The opening of a road through the Jervois Ranges to Queensland is a vital necessity for Alice Springs, so that the residents of South Western Queensland and the North-West of New South Wales may come direct, instead of the many hundreds of miles of roundabout to got here. Leaving Alice it would travel through the Jervois Ranges and join up with other roads at Bedourie, a town on the Wills River, Queensland, it then could divert either across to Longreach north-east or to Charleville south-east. It would be a popular road and bring along many visitors, and give a scenic view of ranges that are full of various metals and interest. 'You cat ! What do you know about my past ?' 'That 'there's at loast fifty years of it !' ?

ELLIOTT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 26 July 1947

ELLIOTT Some 20 miles or so south from Newcastle Waters is the new pros pective town of Elliott. It is not very large yet, but the Adminis tration has it laid out so that in the future it may run a popula tion of 2,000. Just how that population is to exist is not yet made clear, but quite a lot of trouble and possibly some bit of cash had to be spent so that the town planning- is just what it should be, A correspondent from there thinks it will pan out well and that the time is not far off when the name of Elliott will be known all over the Territory. The 'Centraliun Advocate' wishes them the very best of luck and that all' their happy dreams come true. Under a new U.S. legal ruling* vou can whistle while you work, but not a 'wolf' whistle — that takes a girl's mind ofF what she is doing and makes her want to do something else.

I have known his as? a battler prospector for many years in the Territory and he has requested that access be given to the Jervoiu Range Mineral Field. I have never actually been to the Jervois Range although I have been very close to it. 1 understand it is very rich in silver lead and other metals and development is only held up by want of transport.

BLACK MAN'S RETRIBUTION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 26 July 1947

BLACK MAN'S RETRIBUTION Just aa long as time ia and just as long as there are men and women so the Eternal Triangle will continue (said the Wanderer). To show that color and place do not matter let me take you to the far red centre of Central Austrar lia away back in the year 1920. Here, on one fine frosty morn ing just after the big rains had set the Territory blossoming, the spirit of adventure caught up with John Stanley, a big strapping speciment of the Australian gold prospector, colloquially known as a 'gouger.' Gold waa in his blood and he was going far to hunt it. From his camp along a' section of the great Overland Telegraph line he was setting out. yet again in search of the elusive metal. With him was an aboriginal, two large cattle dogs, and one 'yappa' (barking dog). In the area where Stanley was bound for the Myalls, real bush blackfellows resentful of the white man's intrusion, were known to be hostile. Youth is the time for challange and .Stanley laughed lightly as O...

ENGLISH CAPITAL FOR NORTH AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 26 July 1947

ENGLISH CAPITAL FOR N0RT& AUSTRALIA It is particularly cheering news that England has decided to expend a considerable amount of money in the Northern Territory and Nth. Queensland, in aiding cultivation I of such goods as are urgently needed in Great Britain. „ That thci'e is ample scope for such ex periments is evident and that the matter of that growth is beyond doubt, the Northern Territory and also Nth. Queensland can grow any thing, like tobacco, ua.\, rice, all classes of fruit and vegetables, the only doubtful is wheat. Still there is little else that between the South Australian border and Darwin that cannot be grown or manufactured. When our Governments get away from that unwanted child itlea that has retarded the growth of the North for 100 years, we shall come into our own and prove to the world what an eldorado of all good things have been left on the shelf. Slowly, very clowly, the word decentralisation is seeping into the minds of the Southerners, and Easterne...
