LEGION OF EX-SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
LEGION OF EXSERVICE MEN AND WOMEN During' the last few weeks a number of peo ple have made reference to the fact that there is no Sub-Branch qi the Legion of Ex-Servicemen and Women in Alice Springs. Darwin has quite a live branch and is doing a good job of work. There are a number of mem bers of the Legion residing in the Alice and there must be a great number more who would be eligible to join. The difficulties of a member resident in the Ter ritory are vastly different ' from the rest of the members of his or her southern Sub-Branch, and it would not be easy for southern branches to fight a case for a Territory resident. A great deal more could be done by a local Sub-Branch. 'The time is coming when both K.S.L. and the Legion will need as strong a body as . possible to handle their problems,' said Mr. Derham Green when in Alice Springs this week. It is suggested that anyone in terested should hand in their names to Mr. R. D. King, at Alice Springs, and it will then be known wheth...
TODD CAUSEWAY WASHED OUT TRAGEDY NARROWLY AVERTED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
TODD CAUSEWAY WASHED OUT TRAGEDY NARROWLY AVERTED Last Saturday night a tragedy was narrowly averted at the cause way separating- East and West Alice Springs thanks mainly to a few quick witted citizens of the town. Through' local heavy i%ains, we had the pleasure of seeing the Todd running strongly once more. But it was also strong and deep enough to sti'and people from their homes on either side of the river. On Saturday night two ladies trying to get to their homes on the east side, decided to take a lift with a motor vehicle which was attempting to cross the i flooded river. The vehicle, after getting halfway across, slipped into a hole and became stranded. One of the passengers attempted to make for the bank, but the swirling waters and her soaked clothing made progress very diffi cult. After being in imminent danger of being swept off her feet and carried downstream, the lady was finally rescued by a member of the Police Force, who waded in and helped the exhausted near victim...

MR. BLAIN, M.H.R. VISITS HATCHES CREEK [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
MR. BLAIN, M.H.K. VISITS HATCHES CREEK After Mr. Blain had visited most of the miners at Hatches Creek he asked them to meet him at Mr. Don Hoskin's lease on Sun day morning, so he would have a chance to hear what difficulties they had on the fields. This meeting was attended by most of the miners, and Mr. P. E. Nolon was appointed chairman. After the chairman had intro duced Mr. Blain to the meeting, Mr. Blain said he was very pleas ed to see such a good attendance and would be glad to hear their views, and he assured the men he would press for improvements in the House when he got back to Canberra. After several speakers had ex pressed their dissatisfaction in regard to the production of wol fram, the following motions were moved and carried : 1 — That the Government take over the control of wolfram and peg it at a suitable price for five years. 2— That a Government buyer and assayei* be stationed at Alice Springs. ' '. ' ?5 — For a Government controll ed battery to be on' the fie...
RICH GOLD CRUSHING AT TENNANT CREEK [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
RICH GOLD CRUSHING AT TENNANT CREEK ' ? ? .n. ? Over the air comes the news that Ken Milnes and English, oi the Tippett goldmine, have had an ex cellent crushing, of some 500 tons the average has been 32 dw ts per ton. 'The Centralian Advocate' wishes to heartily congratulate you both, it is a particularly fine effort and may you have many more like it. s It merely poea to show, and has often been proved, how little geologists knew when they con demned Tennant Creek, the Gran ites and other fields in 1932, as worthless, and backed up by the southern press in their scathing1 remarks about the assets of the Northern Territory. Mr. John son was right on the mark when he said they had been doing this for years. Now Mr. Johnson is also a miner and we may expect sympathy from him. He would know what our troubles are and that for every successful miner there are probably 200 that are fortunate if they are making tucker, and he might, if the powers of which he is one, give consideration to ...
COSTLY JUSTICE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
COSTLY JUSTICE On Friday, August 8, the Stipendiary Magistrate, Mr. C. K. Ward, and his recording clerk. Mr. J. Lewis, left Darwin by air for Daly Waters. There they were met by Constable Bowie and taken by car via Newcastle Waters to Wave Hill. There at the sit tings of the Police Court, Abori ginal Alec — in evidence referred to as Mad Alec — was charged with having assaulted one of the over seers at Wave Hill. He was con victed and sentenced to one month's imprisonment. The wea pon of offence was the native's strong arm. As frequently hap pens in these outback trials, whilst Constable Riley prosecuted for the police, Constable Bowie acted as Protector for the native. After the conviction Constable Bowie drove the S.M., his clerk and the prisoner to Tennant Creek, where the two former alighted to catch Tuesday's plane back to Darwin, whilst the prisoner was taken on to do his time in the Alice Springs jail. With the East side of Alice Springs growing every day we will have to hnve...
REPORT ON NORTHERN TERRITORY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
REPORT ON NORTHERN TERRITORY \ BY HON. J. McEWEN, M.H.ll. During' his recent tour of the Northern Terri tory, the Hon. J. Mc Ewen noticed the many handicaps that Hie people of the North have to con tend with. Among' the many points he raised as to our difficulties, were several that this paper had given public ity to. Perhaps we may now get some action from our (Government. With the people in other parts of Australia starting to realise that the Northern Territory is full of opportunity, the question of 'populate or perish' is pushing itself forward every day. We, of the Northern Territory know, or should know, our vast potential wealth, and with such men as the Hon. J. McEwen to help place our ca.se before the Government, we may eventually receive more co-operation. After a comprehensive tour of the North, Mr. McEwen stressed our urgent need for population and an increase in production, and to help overcome our disabilities we would need the following pre requisites : — The first i...

FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
FOO T BALL. On Sunday, keen interest was shown by the ever increasing spectators at the match between the Pioneers and Federals. The oval was, of course, 'dead' : after such a wet week-end, but not muddy, as expected. This week the Pioneers proved much too good for the FederaTS and ran out easy winners, but we hear that the Federals have something up their sleeve in the way of good players for next ? , week's match. The umpiring was good, but could be improved with the help of the captains, by mak their men stay in their places and thus keep the game open. The scores were as follows : — Pioneers— -) goals 7 points; Federals — '6 goals 10 points. ? , Goalkickers — Pioneers — H. Peckham 0; Pearson, Tilmouth and Steve (each one) ; Federals ? — Bates 2; Fairbairn J. Best players — Pioneers — Roman, Branson, Costello, S. Peckham; .'',: Federals — Whelan, Owen, Clough, McCabe.

ANNUAL RACE CLUB BALL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
ANNUAL RACE CLUB BALL Monday night at the Catholic Hall was a night of nights, when the Central Australian Racing Club held its race club ball. The hall was elaborately decor ated, and due credit must go to Mesdames Abberton, Nelson, Sim mounds, Bloomfield and Hayes and all the other members of the Ladies' Committee who so gener ously gave up their time to make the hall such a grand sight. A most sumptuous supper was provided for all, and this time we have W. J. Twilley to thank for such wonderful catering. The floor was in tip top order and the master of ceremonies (Mr. Reg. Brain) saw to it that everybody enjoyed themselves. Music was supplied by Mrs. King, Messrs Jones, Kanes, Stiles, Paror and Koop. 300 persons were killed and over 6000 injured in a terrific explosion at Cadiz, Spain.
GOOD RAINS AT ALICE SPRINGS 433 POINTS RECORDED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
GOOD RAINS AT ALICE SPRINGS 433 POINTS RECORDED The cold and wet weather last week-end had the effect of spoiling the various sport ing fixtures, and the two days* race meeting had to be post poned for a week. The Cen tral Austrlaian Racing Club will now open it's meeting to day (Saturday), and the second day of the meeting will be held on Monday. The rain will be of great bene fit to pastoralists, and the cattle men will not mind their sport being interfered with. The lighter sandhill areas will reap the full benefit of the rains which fell, and the new growth on the harder country should sur vive until the big rains if the weather does not become hot too suddenly. With normal rains in the New Year we should be off to a flying start for a bumper season in 1948. Following are the recordings in points : — ALICE SPRINGS ? 433 FINKE ? 260 ABMINGA ? 240 MT.

DEATH FOLLOWS FROM ERROR IN JUDGMENT — :o: — UNLICENSED DRIVER The adjourned hearing of the inquest into the death of Kuze Trampovich and Louis Catton, commenced on the 6th August at Uarwm, and con cluded on the 14th. The find ing of the Coroner (Mr. C. K. Ward, S.M.) in each cane was that death was due to injuries caused from being thrown from a motor truck when another vehicle driven by Edward Ernest Dowsett collided with and overturned the truck. The finding went on to say that the collision was caused by an error of judgment on the part of Dowsett not amounting to culpable negligence. Sgt. W. McKinnon assisted the Coroner, while Mr. W. H. John ston appeared to watch the in terests of the Commonwealth and Mr. W. H. Coop appeared for Dowsett.

THE OLD SUNDOWNER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
THE OLD SUNDOWNER We wonder how many are left of us who remember the old 'sun- downer' as we of the leaving generation knew him GO years ago. He would not be known in the Northern Territory, but was very common indeed in the more set tled areas of N.S.W. and Queens land. One would meet him either reclining under a shady tree near a lagoon or a waterhole. He was the figure from which sprang the song, now almost national 'Waltzing Matilda.' Matilda is his swag and the waltz ing came from his method of walking that was almost in waltz time. He would have quite a de cent sized swagt and did not believe in being uncomfortable. He carried two billies, one for tea and the other to cook his beef or to make a stew or for vegetables. He was generally so practical that ho also carried a small hook of wire to take his billy off with out burning his fingers. His other kit consisted of a bag for Hour, same for tea, and sugar, in a small tin would be pepper and salt mixed and generally a bit of cr...
A FIRST MOTOR CAR [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947
A FIRST MOTOR CAR The Wanderer purchased one of the first cai's that came to Aus tralia. It was a French Darrach, and from our estimate of todav, just weird and wonderful. Still, it was like all those articles of those times, made to last, the workmanship was excellent and the material of the best. The Wanderer looks back with pride on the day he had his first lesson and was able to handle it himself. It was a two cylinder job, the steering same as today, but the throttle was purely a lever and at times when in a hurry it was opened wide and would stick and the car would bolt, this meant that one had to lean over the front and undo the catch. The speed it had was terri fic, very nearly 20 miles an hour, and after doing a top speed of about nine miles per hour in a buggy, it was a hair raising ex perience. It had, however, its fascination, coming along a road, the noise and smell put every vehicle off the road ancl the streets were all your own. Also it was so popular that you had no...
