A DINKUM AUSSIE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

A DINKUM AUSSIE A few days ago an Alice Springs business man lost a cloth cash bag containing some cheques. This was found by a retired black tracker, Walter Alice, who promptly took it to Mr. McCoy, Superintendent of Native Affairs Department: Mr. McCoy handed the bag to the police, from whom the owner recovered his property. Walter, who vised to be No. 1 tracker for the late Sgt. Koop, was given a substantial reward for his honesty by the owner of the lost cheques. Mr. R. Rundle. the Shell rep resentative from Alice Springs is at present visiting Darwin with his wife. They made the journey overland by car and caravan. In these days of housing shortages this is a most sensible way to travel.

CAVE MAN STUFF [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

CAVE MAN STUFF Just as the barge was leaving the Port of Darwin with the Wan derer practising a rolling gait in anticipation, a nigger arrived and asked for an interview with Cap tain Kidstakes (that name's as good as any). The captain gave a Yo Heave Ho to his heavy eye brows at a nigger interrupting the getaway in this fashion and inclined an unwilling ear to the native's urgent palaver. It seems, according to the nig ger, that through the alleged vil liany of a certain white man (Doug Brown will do us for a name) he had been deprived of a wife. In' his husbandly estimate this lubra was the essence of beauty and charm, not to men tion all the virtues. Consequent ly, being broken-hearted, all he wanted was to get to sea and cast all his cares overboard. 'What name you ?' says Cap tain Kidstakes to the grass widower. 'Charley !' says he, and adds that the captain need not think he is useless aboard a vessel be cause no one knew better than he in all Darwin where the shoals and sandb...

LITTLE RED BIRD [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

LITTLE RED BIRD This is not the. beginning1 of a song, or a rival to little yellow bird, it refers to an article from these pages of July 19, about painted finches. We have received a letter from Mr. Laurie Ellis, who clarifies the painted finches as Gouldian Finches, or scientifically known as 'Poephila Gouldioe.,' That, by the way, is not the name that one of our bushmen (who should know better) called it when on returning to his camp found two dead in his bucket of drinking water. Still now he knows and stands corrected. The little fairy red bird is not, according to Mr. Ellis, represent ed in the S.A. Museum, and as he- desires, we shall' try, to get one for that institution,, as we con sider them the most graceful and dainty bird that we have ever seen. Mr. Ellis is at present staying at MacDonald Station, and is there for the purpose of studying bird life. There is only the first kiss. After that there is only the search to recapture it.

HEALTH MENACE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

HEALTH MENACE Sir. — Now that the residents of Alice Springs have decided the town must have swimming pools, I etc., surely before anything in ' the nature of amenities in under- | taken the State School play ground has No. 1 priority. For the space of '-acre, 242 children play in bulldust to a depth of six inches. It needs tio imagination to x'ealise what a menace to health this is with the particular type of dust, filled with particles of mica and quartz. We shall before long have the un fdrtunate children contracting miners' phthisis or kindred ail ments. After assembly, the children go into the classrooms, the dust follows with them, and it is necessary to use the fans for five to six minutes to clear the air. The evidence of this is apparent in the children's clothing when they return home — they almost need identity cards. No physical exercises can be carried out in the playground, owing to this dust and the amount of broken glass working up through the sand. Are our children ...

Following are the Champion ship winners : — Senior Boy Cham pionship, Maxwell Clough; Senior Girls' Championship,, Sadio Mc Ginness; Junior Boys' Champion ship, Reg Fry and John Simpson (tie); Junior Girls' Championship, Jean White.
