' What n glorious protection they would be to our entrance to the town on either end and what an introduction to our proposed parks. This tree grows at. a most rapid rate and soon reaches 40 to 50 feet and the shadows from these would make all the difference to Lhe Alice temperature.

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, AUGUST 2, 1947 SITUATION IN EUROPE The latest overseas news is any thing but reassuring.

Never theless, once a depression is start ed it takes considerable time to rectify the worry and trouble it ciiuses. Still the Uritish bulldog is never seen at better advantage than when placed with his back to the wall, and the hope now of all british stock is that the silver lining is just around the corner. It is to the credit of our present Australian Government that they have rallied bravely to make the looming disaster as easy or less probable. The same can bo said of Canada, who also has responded by hand so...
