ARGUMENT SETTLED — DEE AND PSEUDO At recent races at Alice Springs a hot nrgument arose between the merits of an old favorite Dee and a new star that had arisen to fame by the fact that he won two races by the simple fact that at a recent meeting ho was tho only horse in the race, just whether this' proclaimed him a champion is not known, presumably his own er thought that the fact tho other horses scratched was evidence that fear of defeat was tho primary objection. So two owners, both good sports, but with a firm belief that a Grandfather's clock ticked off tho right time, oven if tho pendulum had to be given n kick to start it ofT when tho horses had only gone a furlong and stopped again as they como up the straight. Quite a big crowd turned up and a sum of £225 was said to be tho wager — Dee to concede 14 lb. to I'seudo. It certainly gave the tourists a thrill and after all that is what they came up for.

WILL THE N.T. BE LEFT OUT ? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

/ILL THE N.T. BE L.EFT OUT ? Beginning in July the Federal Government proposes to make a tlrant to State Governments for . oad construction and maintenance purposes by an amount equal to d. a gallon on petrol entered for onsumption. In addition another t million will be provided to the tates for roads in sparsely popu ited areas, timber country, and ural areas. Considering that etrol tax and other motor tax tion collected by the States in he years 1939-40 to 1945-46 stalled the enormous sum of more ian £63 millions, there should be ome generous roadwork done in he near future. And when it omes to roads what part of Aus ralia can more fairly claim at ention that the Northern Terri tory ? Territorians are hopeful hat the Australian Transport \dvisory Council which will lay 'own the basis of a roads policy i connection with the grants will ?^e to it that Centralia and the Top End' are treated better thnn i the past.

OUR COLORED SCENERY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

OUR COLORED SCENERY Tourists say that nature pro duces no better natural colors than do the mountains and valleys of the McDonnell Ranges. To see these at the best is to go out about 4 p.m. and travel in the various oars' available at short notice in Alice Springs and watch the effects that continuously change almost every half hour. Possibly it is the shadows from the sur rounding hills that make the illus tration so vivid. One can watch the views on one side the moun tains a dark deep shade changing a little further on to a dark blue, again changing to a vivid blue, then, hey presto ! in the distance a bright golden shade with var ious reds and pinks predominating. Much of the rocks carry a mauve color and the sun glinting on this gives at times a rainbow effect hard to describe. Simpsons Gap produces for inspection six dis tinct coloring of rocks. Do not miss this place tourists, the grandeur of the gap is breath taking. 'Why should I always go to bed at a certain time ?' complai...

GOLD SMUGGLING RAMPANT LONDON. — Gold valued at over £120,000 has been seized by Bom bay Customas- officers in a series of raids against Arabs who are smuggling it into India, says a correspondent of the 'Daily Tele-* ? graph.' One haul, believed to be the largest ever made in Bombay, con sisted of Mexican gold bars, coins and irregular gold pieces. It was hidden in small bags secured to the anchor chains of vessels plying between the Persian Gulf and Bombay. Customs officials had combed the seabed to discover the bags. , Gold pieces in India rate 25 per cent, higher than in the Middle East, says the correspondent, and, a recent discovery was £1,600 worth of gold bars in tins of honey.

A STRIKING OLD CUSTOM [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

A STRIKING OLD CUSTOM \ An Adelaide business man who returned by road from Alice Springs the other day is reputed to have asked the police black tracker at Finke Siding if he would care to come with him to Horseshoe Bend and show him the way. When they camped the first night, the black moved away to boil his own billy. Curious to see the Australian natives' method of fire making, the traveller walked over to where the tracker was crouching over the billy. 'You makem fire, rubben stick together ?' he asked. The tracker nodded. 'You showem ?' was the next question. 'Me rubben stick,' he said, as he produced a battered box of matches and struck one.

THE PEACE SITUATION OVERSEAS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 24 May 1947

THE PEACE SITUATION OVERSEAS It is hard to see what the var ious moves of the great powers portend. The situation is not un like *a huge game of chess where each of the two now most power ful powers use all the smaller powers as pawns. It is definitely positions wanted in case of, future wars, and peace seems as far off as ever, strategy for oil and sea positions. Molotov, on behalf of Russia is making a tremendous bluff she cannot possibly be ready yet for another war, but all movements point that way. Either America or Russia has to stop soon or make some definite move one way or the other. Russia is probably playing for time, meanwhile build ing up her forces and probably doing her utmost to arrange time for her scientists to perfect the atom bomb. What then will America do, give an ultimatum while she is on per haps the safe side or dally until it is too late. The world has had more than enough of fighting and one would think that fatigued nations would welcome peace at almost a...

We reserve the right to criticise this Government or any succeeding Uovernmen? of whatever color. Where credit is due for anything that helps the Northern Territory, we shall applaud and give thanks, but where we get the accustomed kick in the pants, we are going to kick back hard.
