ROCKETTING AROUND [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

KOCKETTING AROUND By the WANDERER Listening in on their short-wave smoke signals recently, the abor iginals of Central Australia were interested to learn how some of their southern defenders had ad vocated a march of the tribes to Canberra to protest against the location of the Rocket Bomb 'site. It was hot news for their message sticks. Many a Tuggamurra paused in eating his roast 'dingo Tib to disgress on the folly of the White Man. In effect he said: 'Where does it get him ?' Around their camp firea as they fried the succulent snake or slung the buck aroo, fur and all, in the ashes, the women's point of view was touched on by the lubras. Would the rocket ease their task of chasing the agile kangaroo, and make the goanna easy catching ? When informed by the Wanderer it would kill all game within sight and sound the lubras chanted: 'Gibbit plenty rockets.' Doubt arose in the minds of many a mission-fed native that if . the rocket took everything in its /path the mission settlements...

MAIL SERVICE MELBOURNE TO ALICE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

MAIL SERVICE MELBOURNE TO ALICE The writing is on the wall that before Christmas we shall see the T.A.A. service flying from Mel bourne to Darwin via Alice Springs and this will, in spite of the fact that Guinea Airways pioneered the route from Adelaide, be a more popular route than from Adelaide. Probably many new businesses will open up in the north, with headquarters in Melbourne. It is only a matter of time be fore an air route will also arrive frnm Kv-ln«v. Alir*- Snrinirs Is the more direct route to London and parts of Africa, this, via Wyndham, will assuredly be open ed up in opposition to other routes, and much time saved to both Mel bourne and Sydney direct. With big men of business every day counts and getting ahead of a rival by hours means unlimited money.

FISH THAT LIVE IN NEAR-BOILING TEMPERATURE WATER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

FISH THAT LIVE IN NEAR BOILING TEMPERATURE WATER ? ' ? O ? ??'?'?? Some of surely the most peculiar fish in the world come from artesian bores in south-western Queensland. In many of these bores the water comes out suffi ciently hot to make good billy tea and without any further trouble, so that you can wonder when at the same time also arrives hundreds of small fish, approximately one inch to one and a half inches in length. . These fish have a coarse skin' like a white chamois and no eyes. Where the eye should be is covered with a white skin. The position of the eye is correct and must be used in some way below. When they arrive at the top they swim around actively seemingly as if the eyes are giving service. However, after going ' down stream and the water cools off, they die and form one glorious feed for the myriads o± blade ducks that become so fat that it is with the utmost difficulty they are made to fly, and therefore are easy prey for the gunman, who likes this class of sp...

CLASSIFICATION OF CROWN LAND [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

CLASSIFICATION OF CROWN LAND In a previous article some weeks ago, we mentioned about Crown land being opened for pas toral leases and quoted the apple story that some might be good while others may be bad. We likened it to someone selling a dozen apples, eight say, of which were go.od and four rotten, the penalty for a late arrival was that he must take one of the four rot ten apples, or get none at all. What we wished to draw attention to was that there should be a classification of 'the land. How ever, sonic of our prominent pas toralists have again brought this matter up and asked us to clarify that statement. It comes merely to this. Take one look, at the Territory map and note all the blank spaces. There are not only thousands, but hun dreds of thousands of spare acres showing in every direction. The leases cling to the main highway, like barnacles to a ship and on each side arc hundreds of thou sands of square miles of country. Now partly the reason for this is that the count...

MASS MEETING OF MICA MINERS MINES DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS ATTEND [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

MASS MEETING OF MICA MINERS MINES DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS ATTEND During the week there was a meeting at Harts Range of the miners al which the Mines Department officials, locally and Canberra attended. From lifferent accounts presented to this paper it seems that it was quite a mixed bag, and the local compluints in that it was stage-managed and an open ballot, wherus some interested consider it should have been a secret ballot. The result was that a majoritv voted in favor ol Gov ernment control. Unfortunately, Mr. Turnbull, whrt promised to give us a copy of proceedings has not returned. As a result of the meeting it appears that' Mr. Travers has been instructed by some of the miners to take proceedings to protect their interests, and that at least one big holder refuses o accept the order as published below. It is said that a previous order had been issued to the miners which Mr. Jenkins acting for some miners, says was invalid, and the result was that now a further order has been i...

Indonesia v. Holland [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

Indonesia v. Holland Thjs is a scrap that presents many difficulties, the story of ono side is right until you hear the other. It has at last become obvi ous that if the United Nations were ever going to act in any dis pute, this is an opportune time. Then again one wonders why they have not started pn the Chinese problem, that is much older, in fact war there 1ms never ceased. There is another parallel in Greece, ho it is interesting to know just why the Indonesian trouble was selected as an ? object lesson. Of course, a sturt has to be made somewhere, and it will be a mark in the line of progress if it is done satisfactorily.' Let us analyse it a little. Tho centuries held these islands, and by their endeavours have opened them up by finding oil, plantation of rubber, exploitation of the many minerals made the islands the gems of the Pacific, and prob ably of the world. They have spent many hundreds of millions of pounds in building cities, prob ing for oil and making scores of pa...

PROPOSED ALICE SPRINGS AERO CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

PROPOSED ALICE SPRINGS AERO CLUB A movement is being made in and endeavor to start an aeronauti cal club at Alice Springs. There are so many today who would like to be able to fly and pilot their own planes that we should endeavor to get this going and so many that otherwise would have to go south and lose valuable time, would then get all their exper ience here at a much lesser cost. To put it on a safe basis, the following, according to Mr. Pat Davis, who is a pilot pf recent war experience is what is required to place the club on a sound basis — \i Tiger Moths, total £1,000; hangar to cost .£500. Davis Brothers are willing to make a donation of .£50 if the Alice Club can raise £1,500. They think that it is no good starting in debt and that amount should easily be raised by local and sta tion men, or by someone granting a donation of 1*1.500 interest free for five years. Anyone interested please write to the 'Centralian Advocate.' This Office for Job Printing

UNDOOLYA CAVES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

UNDOOLYA CAVES — :o:—~ Last Sunduy saw a party of in vestigators go out 12 miles south to investigate the Undoolya Caves that so much is heard about. They were armed with candles, batteries, shin plasters, and they thought all the necessities that go for adven probe the caves to the furthermost limits. This is what they did, first they forgot the torches, etc., and went in but a short way and got chased out by the banshees or some debbil debbil that inhabits that awful place. However, soon arrived another car, this one did bring both torches and candles, and a further car ar rived with onlookers only this time. With fresh blood, courage reviv ed, two grown up, Messrs. Ron Morcom and Harold Sweeney, fol lowed by three young people, de cided to brave the banshees, wonta gongs and other relics of the underland. The adults started in front with the candles, the in fantry coming behind cautiously with the torch. The adults got too far ahead and the children were rushed by a bunyip or som...
