A SWIMMING POOL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 2 August 1947

A SWIMMING POOL The necessity for a swimming pool has long been the most want ed pleasure that Alice Springs could envisage. In Alice it really requires two — one on the south end of the city and one on the north — distance counts as well as other details any of which can be over come. The main issue is that a swimming pool is a dire necessity and it is to be hoped that this is' one of the first ventures to be undertaken by the new proposed Town Progressive Society. We have all the necessary goods for making a pool, unlimited sand and water, and a pool should defin itely be made a No. 1 priority. Summer is near and this brooks no delay. We suggest that Alice community does what Port Augus A Local Swimming Pool A Local Swimming Pool ta, did, form a working bee and each Saturday and Sunday a num ber of residents in turn gave the day gratis until the pool is com pleted. It then can be run as a club with a committee to control the members. A' second swimming pool can be built south on t...

GOLD STILL NOT GETTING ITS VALUE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 2 August 1947

GOLD STILL NOT GETTING ITS VALUE It is indeed hai'd to understand why gold and mica are selected by the Government to be on a re stricted price and in the instance of gold many pounds below the world's market rate. It is only reasonable to ask why' is this in sisted upon, why .should the Ngpld and mica pi'oducer. be nailed down as men by whom the nation wishes to fleece. The statement that it is not taxed is only a rumor. Miners flog along for months and in some cases years without any help or assistance, often not making the necessary food to keep us alive, let alone making a wage. Then at long last they make a strike, then they have what should .be their friends waiting with open mouths to swallow any profits. Not con tent with getting 17/7 i, per ounce as well as 3i\. in tho '£ royalty, they give them £10/15/G per ounce for gold that a black mar ket will willingly pay on the spot £15 for and no tax. The open market of India, not so far away, pays £22 and Franco £44 ,'per ounce. I...

Anything can happen to a man with only one mate in that area.

THE WITCH DOCTOR [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 2 August 1947

THE WITCH DOCTOR — -:o: — Do the blnck races of Australia have the same hypnotic and mes meric powers of, sny. thought con trol as that shown in ihe past by such healers as Gipsy Smith or Hickson ? Hove they that power which makes the supplicant feel that what is said is unchallengably true ? Or is it sonvj bodily mag netism of their own that imparts the effect ? There is little doubt, as the Wan derer has learned over a lifetime of watching1 the black.? and their habits, that in many way* they do control powers in ii fashion un canny to the white man, such as a medicine man like Spinifex, of the Granites tribe, going into a trance and accurately describing happen ings going on (50 miles away. And at that distance it would be too far for smoke signals even were the medium, in a position to dis cern them. As Witch Doctor to his tribe Sninifox. in the nresenru of the Wanderer and other witnesses, once saved the life of a poisoned tribesman by a strange ceremon ial of wire extraction. ...
