For the Children ANDY, THE ANT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

For the Children — :o: — ANDY, THE ANT Once upon a time there lived a baby ant. His home was in an anthill out in the bush. He had a nurse to look after him because his parents were too busy gather ing food to do so. Now Andy (that was the ant's name) was never allowed to go out of the anthill by himself. But one day when his nurse was not look inp he crept out through a hole. For a moment the bright sunlight blinded him and he had to stand still till he could see properly. After a while he crawled over the hard, sun-baked ground, till he came to the tiny track* made by the worker ants. He stood and watch ed for a while and at last he de cided to follow the track and find out where the honey came from. Andy walked for a long time and at last when he came to a puddle of water he had a drink and went to sleep under a leaf. When he woke up it was late afternoon and all the ants were hurrying homeward. Andy scur ried after them, but he could not quite keep up and soon he was left far be...

SANDS VERSUS BELL Memories Of Other Fights [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

SANDS VERSUS BELL Memories Of Other Fight?. HY THE WANDERER 10,000 fight fans paid to see the much discussed fight on Tuesday night between Sands (.11 stone aboriginal), rated as one of the world's best at that weight, and Bell, and American negro who was imported specially to meet Sands. One can gauge Bell's rating overseas when, previous to coming to Australia,- he defeated the sec ond best man of those weights in America. A large amount of money was won and lost on Tuesday's* fight. Hell was considered so good that he gave away U lbs., fitfhtintf at 10 stone five pounds, which is too biK a handicap. In heavyweight matter so much. For instance Bob Fitzsimmons, in his fight with Jim Corbett for the world's cham pionship, gave away nearly a stone and still won the fight. On Tuesday night for the first round, although some heavy blows were struck, it was chiefly confined to testing out each other's length, Hell attempted to force the fight ing, and Sands wary. The second round .saw f...

'YOUNG' ERNIE OLD ? — :o: — Ernie Old, the veteran cyclist, arrived in Alice Springs last Sat urday on the concluding stages of his ride to Darwin.

COTTON [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

COTTON Mr. It. Sharpies, a visitor from the south, brought in a sample of cotton to this office on Tuesday ' morning. He was astounded that ' i this extra healthy specimen could be grown here, and was more sur prised when we told him that odd plants had been growing here for some years.. This boll, grown in Alice Springs, was particularly well developed, and is equal to anything grown in Queensland. The Editor, on one of his farms on the head of the Burn- ' ett and at another near Mitchell, ? Queensland, grew successive crops of cotton, and on an average noth ing better than this boll brought in for inspection. It merely goes to make good our boast that anything can be grown ? in Centralia, and this is only one made into a. profitable living; for ex-servicemen that we hope will ; come here in unlimited numbers. As usual the old snag arrives, there is still no land made avail able for small farms and we earnestly request Mr. Johnson to get on to this matter at once. The question of f...

TENNANT NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

TENNANT NOTES Mr. E. Moon, of Tennant Creek, arrived in Alice Springs on Wed nesday. He is our agent and cor respondent from that area. He says that some 150 men have left the Tennant and gone to the wol from fields. This is one of the ventures that so far a miner can do as he likes and sell direct or otherwise. Like all gold miners of today they feel that they are being fleeced in having to sell so far be low world's parity and prefer to get onto wolfram. They are like wise keeping off mica and a defin ite statement from the Govern ment on what they arc going to do in both these lines, would do a lot to stem the unrest of acquir ing (this is a nasty word) goods that the miners consider they are underpaid for. Tennant is also feeling sad about that, promised water scheme. They want water right in the town and would like to see some scheme in working order at once. Promises sound alright at the time, but later are distinctly uninteresting. There are many men in Tennant with frond un-...

HOUSING PROBLEM SOLVED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

HOUSING PROBLEM SOLVED — :o: — The whole world has before; it the housing problem, and from ftvery country comes the s,'('ne story — want of housing. Nothing but unlimited talk and no real en deavour to solve the ways and moans. This problem is the cause, of 75 per cent, of today's unrest. Newly married without a chance of a home, others, perhaps, more sensible decide not to marry until this housing problem is overcome. Those already married and hav ing to hoard refuse to bring child ren into the world, other married couples have to . live apart, and with the whole trouble there has up-to-date been no constructive scheme to alleviate such distress. And distress is the right word, every human being has the right to a home of some sort, and as the old song goes: 'be it ever so hum ble, there's no place like home.' This paper is always stressing this point that something should be done. First, give each indi vidual a place to live, some little place that can be called a home and let it...

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 9 August 1947

Women's Column — :o: — i CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Hello everyone ! White waiting to pour out for all, Miss Dash and I have been touring — just verbally, with our memories painting the pictures of delights we both knew not so many years ago. It all hap pened because we saw a heading 'Apple Blossom Tour,' and if you cannot share our memories then I hope that some day you will be down south in August, and that you will have time to leisurely tour through the Adelaide foot hills. I don't think the fairyland of our younger days would have much more enchantment to olFer. I wonder if almond trees would be successful here ? Miss Dash re marked that the 'satisfying thought' which had come to her, was that if she couldn't be down south to enjoy 'apple blossom time,' she -would be here to ap preciate 'oleander time.' I agreed and her remark led us back to an article we had shared previously. It was written by an American psychologist who maintained that most unhappiness was due to a feeling of d...

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1947. T IMBER — — ,u.— — The housing problem being the moat acute shortage in Australia and in fact the world over, let us envisage this from a Centralian point of view. Galvanised iron is in such short supply that estimates are made from 1500 tons to 4000 tons be low present requirements already. This figure is getting1 worse every month and there is no possible hope under present day conditions I hat it will catch up for many years. Consequently the posi tion for the unwanted child, the Northern Territory, is serious in- ] deed. So far as we know there has not been one building put ' up in Centralin for a serviceman I or ordinary individual since war hostilities have ceased, there may have been some for government officials, but we doubt oven this. ' There has, however, been erected ( a number of flats near Heavytree Gap for the halfcaste population, | and numerous impi'ovements for the abos and their officials. But I for the men who fought...
