DARWIN PHOTOGRAPHIC & AMATEUR CINE SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947
DARWIN PHOTOGRAPHIC & AMATEUR CINE SOCIETY This society held its monthly meeting on Wednesday, August 0. Mr. Derham Green gave a short address on the 'Fundamentals of Photogi-aphy,' which we believe to be the first of a series of such addresses. These should be of great value to anyone desiring to know something more than that you take a ..picture by pressing1 the button. There followed two very interesting color films kindly loaned by Mr. Douglas Young. They both dealt with Centralia and in particular the Hermanns berg district. Manys of these scenes painted by Albert Namat jura were shown and if the camera cannot lie, then Albert's colors are true indeed. Mr. V. Tarhanoff then presented two short, but excellent, technicolor films and the evening concluded with a most interesting comment ary on the photographs displayed at the recent ball. Some depict ing pre-blitz Darwin are, we be lieve, to be acquired by the so ciety and hung in its club rooms as they are felt to have mu...

TRUCKING YARDS AT FINKE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947
TRUCKING YARDS AT FINKE As a result of representations made by the Central Australian Pastoral Lessees' Association, the Administrator directed the Chief Vetei'inary Officer to enquire into the matter, r^hilting in a compre hensive report forming the basis of a submission to the Minister for Interior. Certain objections were raised by the Commissioner for the Commonwealth Railways, but these have been overcome and the Minister has now approv ed of the construction of trucking yards at Finke Siding, and the necessary funds have been made available. It is proposed to use the Alice Springs trucking yards as a basic design and to invite suggestions from authoritative bodies as to how this might be modified to make the Finke yards conform to all requirements and conven ience. In this connection the Chief Veterinary Officer will be glad to receive constructive sug gestions. riiei'e js no intention to dis mantle the existing yards at Rumbalara as it is recognised that these will still be r...
THE STOCK MOVEMENT PROGRAMME [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947
THE STOCK MOVEMENT PROGRAMME An attempt has been made; this droving; season to evolve and maintain a droving programme in order to. ensure that large mobs of cattle will not concentrate on certain watering places and ex haust their capacity. The droving' programme is Hearing its end and it is pleasing to be able to report that with minor exceptions, suc cessive mobs have been evenly spaced along the major stock routes with a result that the strain on the Woi'ks and Housing gangs, . in previous seasons,, has been relieved, and the pumping of adequate water has been rend ered possible. The continued co operation of owners and drovers in the 1948 season will be of the utmost benefit to travelling stock generally. The movement of cattle from northern leases- to the Alice Springs district has been greater this year than normally and will be terminated when two Invex' way mobs, one Beetaloo mob, and one Coolibah mob reach their destinations. The recent inspec tion of the Victoi-ia River d...

TO THE EDITOR FLYING DOCTOR SERVICE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947
TO THE EDITOR FLYING DOCTOR SERVICE Sir. — Since the Flying Doctor Service hs been operating from Alice Springs, residents in the bush have come to rely on that service more and more when sick ness or accidents occur. And that service has not failed them, al though occasionally the suffer ers or their friends or relatives have been much disappointed when the hoped-for aeroplane has not arrived, and they have been compelled to bring the sufferer anything up to 200 miles over some of the ? worst roads in the Territory to hospital. The rea son for the disappointment has been that the bush dwellei's have not known that it is not the officer of the Flying Doctor Service who says whether the aeroplane is to sent out, but it is the doctor in charge of the Alice Springs Gov ernment Hospital who makes that decision. On the other hand, our doctors are not old residents of the Ter ritory, they have not had time to visit the out-back places where bush people live and bring up their families, an...

MODERN TRANSPORT DIESEL INSTALLED MR. L. R. TUIT KEEPS ABREAST OS1 THE TIMES Mr. R. (Bob) Caldwell, diesel engineer, arrived in Alice Springs on Thursday, 7th August, 1947, to jnstnl a 5LW Gardiner diesel engine in a K.S.6 International prime mover for Mr. L. R. Tuit. This will be the first Gardiner installed in a civilian vehicle in the Territory and heralds a long period of service , to passengers on the Alice Springs-Darwin run. Mr. Tuit has been solely an In ternational user but realises that to progress in transportation he must move with the times. Event ually the petrol motor will be re placed by diesel on all long haul age and passenger runs. To en able such a long run (945 miles) to be kept to a reasonable time table and yet have the necessary meal and overnight stops, it is necessary to average 40 m.p.h. throughout the journey. This has been achieved by altering the gear ratios and using a 30 per cent, overdrive. Structural alterations to the chassis and bonnet are be ing1...

ARBITRATION [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947
ARBITRATION The. scrap between Holland and Indonesia reads like a play. First, both parties made intermittent1 scraps and the Indonesians re ferred the matter to the United Nations. The U.N. on meeting, decided that America should act as arbitrator, and eventually both accepted that ruling. Then came the Australian ban on Dutch shipping and a general interference with Holland. That, in ordinary times, would have meant a declaration of war. Everything Australia can do has been done to antagonise Holland, whether it is justified or not, and personally we do not think it is. Tfye fact remains that our unions at least are definitely on the side of Indonesia. After all this, Aus tralia has offered to act as meria tor in a dispute that they have shown to interpret as having only one side to it. Naturally, Indonesia is all for a scheme of this sort and wel comes the offer with open arms (any of us under tho same cir cumstances would do the same). As a farce it is wonderful, you first tell ...
