NATIONALISATION OF BANKS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

NATIONALISATION OF BANKS ? ? r\ ? ? Following the decision of the High Court that section 48 of the Commonwealth Banking Act is invalid, the Prime Minister. Mr. Chifley, has announced that Cab inet has authorised the Attorney General (Dr. Kvatt) and himself to prepare legislation for submis sion to the Federal Parliamentary Labor Party for the nationalisa tion of banking, other than State banks, with proper protection for shareholders, depositors, borrow ers, and the staff of private banks. The South Australian Premier (Mr. PJayford) said that his Gov ernment would do everything in its power to defeat the proposal. He knew of nothing more likely to destroy the people's confidence than this latest Federal move. The State banks will not be affected as they are clearly pro tected from any move of this nature by the terms of section SI of the Constitution. It is expected that Cabinet's move will result in (tnc of the greatest legal battles in Australia. This Office for Job Print ing.

PRICE CONTROL TO REMAIN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

PRICE CONTROL TO REMAIN Pi-ice control, which is (o be continued into next year, is still an essential safeguard for the Australian economy. The position in America is an object lesson on the premature lifting of price control. When control was removed in America u year ago, it was claimed that the first jump in prices would soon be corrected by an increased supply of con sunioi1 goods. But the latest issue; of an American news review says prices are still going up. The cost of living is reported to bo 58.5 per cent, higher than in tho period Crom 19.'i5 to IMS). The danger of removing prico control in Australia while the, market is under-supplied with consumer goods should be obvious. The cost of living is rising fast enough as it is, without this added stimulus. Australia should, as soon as possible, get rid of non-essential war-time controls which are still being applied. IJut price control is one that must remain, until it is certain that the supply of goods will cover the deman...

YUENDUMU NATIVE SETTLEMENT In accordance with the policy of establishing depots — in the various districts of the Territory wherein the aged and infirm natives can be cared for, where the men and women can be taught trades and the children educated, Yuendumu Native Settlement has been established some 200 miles north-west of Alice Springs iii the Mt.

URGENT PLANS FOR W.A. AND N.T. DEVELOPMENT PERTH, August 20. [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

URGENT PLANS FOR W.A. AND N.T. DEVELOPMENT PERTH, August 20. Important developments in the northern part of Western Austra lia and of tlie Northern Territory are being considered by the Com monwealth in co-operation with, and largely prompted by, the British Government. The State Government will assist in any of the various ac tivities that intimately concern it and in which its specialist know ledge and resources are of vital importance. .This matter was mentioned in a guarded way in Perth today, but no official statement will be made until decisions have been reached. A series of fundamental facts before representatives in each State and some rather nebulous schemes are in process of unex pected discussion following revela tions made during the past few days through Mr. Chifley after consultation with imperial author ities who regard the matter as urgent. Meat is not so easy to obtain from the Argentine/ as it was be fore the war, one of the new obstacles being monetary ex change....

PIONEER AIR SERVICE OUSTED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

PIONEER AIR SERVICE OUSTED For the second time in their history, Guinea Airways are going to lose a service that they have pioneered and one that they have established into a very line service. Now comes the news that TAA Airlines are moving in and taking over the Darwin-Adelaide Ser vice. With the expiration of their licence in October, Guinea Air ways will probably have no alter native but to cease running their service between Adelaide and Darwin. Some compensation will, of course, be paid by the Govern ment to Guinea Airways, but will it be enough to compensate for their pioneering of the serviice that thev established durinir the war. It has only been of late that the service has began to return a profit for the outlay expended at the start. The general feeling in the Ter ritory is that Guinea Airways are getting a raw deal. Any sug gestions that the people of the Northern Territory have put for ward to improve the . service Guinea Airways have tried to carry out and so have ma...

THE BOWER BIRD [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

THE BOWER BIRD The bower bird, in our opinion, is Australia's best mimic, not ex cluding the lyre bird. He is not so spectacular as the latter, being a. grey to suit the bushes he loves to play in. He can mimic anything he hears, from the whistle of a train to the bark of a dog. He can give a perfect mimicry of two torn cats out for a brawl and can give a replica of both voices together. He can, hiding in a grapevine, ring the dinner bell, and has repeatedly brought the men from work long before dinner time. This bird makes a playground between two big tussocks of grass, makes a hallway to join each room and he fills these rooms with glass of many colors if able to get them, otherwise he collects ? quartz of maiiy kinds, and has, more than once, drawn the attention of a gouger to a reef that was not expected. The bower bird is a mimic won der, but will not live in captivity, he frets away and wil* not eat and dies.
