STOCK SALESMEN'S OFFICIAL REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947
STOCK SALESMEN'S OFFICIAL REPORT Another heavy supply of cattle was submitted on Monday, 1,845 coming to hand, including 275 from Queensland, 555 from Central Australia. 850 from the Far North of this State, 80 from northern areas, 40 from southern areas and 45 from local surroundings. The catalogue was a very mixed one, and .from a trade point of view was somewhat disappointing. Steers and bullocks were in the majority but a great number were in only forward store, killable and useful order, the proportion of really good conditioned bullocks being small. Cows and heifers were in ample numbers and they, too, varied from good quality to chopper classes. Calves and year lings were only moderately sup nlind. The market opened to a splendid demand from the local and country trade, amallgoodsmen and graziers, and values throughout were gon erally above last week's average rates. Approximately 40O head were absorbed by outside buyers. Best lightweight and handy weight cattle brought 58/- ...

NUTRITION SURVEY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947
NUTRITION SURVEY — :o: — The following letter has been received by the N.T. Administra tion from Miss Jean McNaughton, who was in charge of the Nutri tion Survey recently conducted in Darwin : — 'I would like to thank you for the help you have given the party conducting the Food Con sumption Survey of Darwin. 'We have completed our work in Darwin and leave today for Wyndham. 'Throughout our stay hero we have received the utmost co operation from everyone — the housewives, Mr. Kennedy of the Public School, Father Flynn and the Sisters at the Convent, and the storekeepers. This has meant that our work has been made much easier, and I feel a lot of the credit is due to the way in which your Department acted as an advance agent for us. 'As yet we have not analysed our result and cannot quote any findings on the level of nutrition here.'
MEETING CONVENED BY MR. JOHANNSEN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947
MEETING CONVENED BY MR. JOHANNSEN The meeting convened by Mr. Johannsen was held as advertised in the pioneer Theatre on Thurs day, August 7. There is so much to write about and so little time for this issue that the whole mat ter is left over until next week. Needless to say it has created quite a lot of interest and is too important to be dealt with in a few lines that are available before this paper goes to press. Mr. Geoffrey Cohen, who is a senior partner in the well-known legal firm of Pavey, Wilson & Cohen, * of Melbourne and also Chairman of Directors of Carlton and United Breweries, Victoria, is on a round flying trip through Queensland and the. Northern Ter ritory. Mr. Cohen arrived at Alice Springs from Darwin on Tuesday last, and is like all visitors, very much impressed by our large oyen spaces.

PRESERVING OUR ASSETS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947
PRESERVING OUR ASSETS — :o: — - The phrase 'Preserving our Assets' is frequently seen now adays as the community' realises its responsibility to hand on to future generations the inheritance received from our forebears. Un fortunately, there are many peo ple who, through thoughtlessness or malice, deliberately waste those assets which in reality should be held by them in trust. This is particularly the- case, in regard to the Stuai*t and Barkly Highways. These two roads, and particularly the former, have be come the main arteries of the Northern Territory. They were built as a wartime measure with a great expenditure of labour, mate rials and money, and are only maintained with a similar heavy expenditure. It is necessary, owing to the nature of the soil which these highways traverse, to impose cer tain resti'ictions upon loads which can be placed on vehicles using wet season. Such a practice is common throughout the other States and, in fact, in all parts of Ihfi world where facili...
PERSONAL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947
PERSONAL Mr. V. E. Guerin, of Salisbury, S.A., called in for a chat. He is pleasantly surprised to find that we in the Centre can grow first class oranges and ours need no spraying — there can be nothing better. He is interested in the country and is probably putting his thinking cap on knowing what a future Alice has for a beginner (we are talking about Alice Springs). - Mr. and Mrs. Fyfe have just concluded their trip around Aus tralia and left on Monday for Ade laide by train with car and caravan on board. They stated that in the whole of their trip they had not seen one town or any one place that for climate compares1 to Alice Springs. They hope to come back next year and will probably settle here — after Melbourne weather this is a paradise. Mr. Fyfe is also interested in the cement prob lem and when back in Melbourne is going to see what the costs are. He says he is prepared to put money into a venture of this sort. We were pleased to meet Mr. H. Littlejohn, of the Civil Aviat...

Miss Reedy looked charming in an evening frock of white satin-backed crepe, appliqued at the neck and waist. Her mother, Mrs. F.

Keedy, T. Stiles and K. Whiting. Mr. H. McDougall made a most success ful M.C., and Mr. F. Baker* rend ered several musical items. A de licious home-made supper com pleted a most enjoyable evening.

ANOTHER ROBBERY AT ALICE SPRINGS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947
ANOTHER ROBBERY AT ALICE SPRINGS — :o: — On Wednesday night -between the hours of 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. two cases* of beer were stolen from the premises of the R.S.S. & A.I.L.A Club. An inspection at first revealed nothing apparently amiss, but shortly afterwards it was found that a lock had been twisted, and a check of the stock showed that thieves had b«en in and secured a quota. ^^ Thieves are on the prowl and; the public is warned not to leave valuables where rogues can help themselves.
BEAUTIFUL SCENERY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947
BEAUTIFUL SCENERY Elsey Falls To give the visitors some idea of the beautiful scenery that may LkT found in the Northern Territory wo submit a scene of a waterfall at the head of the Roper Kivcr and close to Mataranka. Jt is ex tremely doubtful if anything bettor can be shown in other parts. The extreme greeness of the trees, the swish and tinkling of the falls and then the immense placid pools in which all kinds of fish abound, birds twittering among the trees, it is just a dream of peace and comfort. No wonder' then that our Kuulherncrrt on meeting such spots relax and have no wish to return to the turmoil and haste of the cities, with their deafening noise and constant irritation. Here they can rest in peace and relax, dream of days when there was nothing to worry about, before possibly they were hurled into the maelstrom of the present uncomfortable life. There are hundreds of scenes like this for the exploring and in quisitive tourist, and very likely in this as yet unknown cou...
AUSTRALIAN LABOUR PARTY Darwin Branch Formed [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947
AUSTRALIAN LABOUR PARTY Darwin Branch Formed Conforming with the wishes of their Federal Executive, a group of local members met on Friday, August 1, and established the Dar win Branch of the Australian Labour Party. Hopes were expressed that in the near future, branches would be formed in all principal towns of the Territory, and that with its expansion the Party would add strength to the efforts now being made to develop this part of the Commonwealth which has, up to now, seen so little planned pro gress. [The 'Centralian Advocate' is nlu'tivc nlAtica/1 4-r* nuVhliaYi cimr+liiticr that makes for the good of the Territory and is indifferent to what Party it appears for. We are non-political and quite willing to print any interesting articles for any Party. — Editor.]

MORE ABOUT UNDOOLYA CAVES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947
MOKE ABOUT UNDOOLYA CAVES Reverting to the Undoolya Caves, we have a challenge here that our man will ride Atom Bomb for that 20 seconds if Ken will bring him out and saddle him up on top of the big' rabbit warren near the caves. While it is also possible that Cazelle will guarantee at that time and with the aid of our ferret to produce a rabbit from every burrow and not use his hat, while the lady rider on the famous paint horse guarantees that she will yard them all afterwards and return- them once more to the burrows. What a time we are going to have. The famous pie eaters are willing to come along and demolish a further 20 pies, if some cook will provide them free and the public will subscribe a decent prize.
