For the Children THE RACE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 2 August 1947

For the Children BY JULIA ANNE j THE KACE John was a little boy who lived in the city with his parents. He went to school and he was very happy. One day his parents told him that they were going to live in a small town in the country. John crietl because lie didn't want to leave his friends, but his father woudn't change his mind. When they arrived there it was very hot and John decided he didn't like it at all. He liked it less when he found he had to go to school. V 'Now John had won a race at very pround of the fact, and so when he went to his new school he began to boast about his running abilities. While he talked he no ticed a quiet boy called Tony, wan dering away from his circle of listeners. This made him angry, because he thought all the boys should listen to him, so he called out: 'Tony Dixon, come here, please.' 'Do you want me ?' said Tony. 'Yes,' answered John. 'Can you run ?' 'A bit,' Tony said quietly. 'Would you like a race ?' ''T'lr — no thank you, not just now,' s...

MICHAEL TERRY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 2 August 1947

MICHAEL TERRY — :o: — Michael Terry is a man, who, in the curly days or about 1930 did quite a bit of exploring across from W.A. to Alice Springs. One of his trips about that time was to make a trip via Tanami to the Overland Telegraph Line, in this he was assisted by having the use of two English trucks to be tested over rough country. Terry was, of course, also on the look out for gold, and at the north end of the present Granites field did actually discover a location that showed prospects. As this field was some 70 miles nearer the Overland than Tanami, he made hasto after peg ging out the ground towards the line which eventually he did hit in the vicinity of the Ti-Tree then back to Alice. After getting stocks of food he came back via Coniston and thence north-west until his original tracks were cut and then on to the Granites, at that time destitute of any water. Probablv it was about that time that Mr. Ellis, then of the North ern Territory, but now Chief Geologist of Western...

Donnellan for her expression of appreciation of my 'Chat,' in her letter to the me considerably to know that one of our most public-spirited women approves of my efforts and hopes for the continuance of them.

This Office for Job Printing. [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 2 August 1947

This Olficc ? for Job Printing. has always been the forerunner of war and for all time it seems that our natures are so made that such ways will persist for all time. It is shocking to think that the human race is unable to devise some method that would definitely outlaw such practices and give to the weary world peace.

THE CENTRALIAN ROAD TRAIN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 2 August 1947

THE CENTRALIAN UOAD TRAIN — :o:— / Many years apfo in EnsLind were made three road trains, they wore samples to show parts of. the far back Empire what can be done in the way of transport. One of these trains went to Rhodesia, one to some part oi the Transvaal and the other to Central AustraVa. Now the work in this train, like all other work done in Britain, is particularly good. It was ingen ious also because it was so made that even when turning1 in a circle it would track and the most crooked road held not terrors. The engine and driving truck would miss a tree by a few inches, yet the following trucks would track so perfectly that they would also miss by the same few inches and this if you please when actually turning a bend. For years this truck carted huge loads over most indifferent roajls and had very little overhaul until in later years the works were be coming worn out. Because of this road ti-ain being so widely known, we publish a photo of it in action rounding a bend. W...

There were 1,910 yarded, including 425 from New South Wales, G95 Central Australia, 475 Far North, 2Gf| northern areas, 55 southern areas, and GO from local surroundings.

TWO LOST LADIES Two That Were Not Lost [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 2 August 1947

TWO LOST LADIES -:o:- Two That Were Not Lost Some weeks ago the Melbourne press mentioned two elderly ladies that casually walked up to a taxi   driver in Melbourne and instructed him to drive them to Alice Springs. After he had recovered from the shock and still found the maids wanting to go, he arose to the occasion and made all preparations for the trip. This was, of course, news, like the man that bit a dog, only in this case it was the taxi man bitten and in a pleasant manner. The 'Centralian Advocate' as usual after the unusual, gave prominence to the trip, carefully pointed out the possible pitfalls on the way, and wished the ladies the best of luck. Later we heard that they had reached South Aus tralia, but have not been heard of since. We would naturally like to know what has happened. Are they still digging themselves out in some of those sandy creeks? have the savages on the way up returned to their old cannibal ways? or is it they have met con genial company...
