Adelaide Mail (Newspaper) - November 11, 1933, Adelaide, South Australia
National Library of Australia native problem far from solved Heads bowed in remembrance Mission urges prompt action left to study the sins of White men guidance is vital need the native question in Central Australia is far from being solved. According to a report from the superintendent of the Finke River Mission station Rev. F. W. Albrech definite action must be taken if the race is to be saved from extinction. The Federal government with the full support of the general Public must tackle such problems As the employment of natives in the settled areas adequate pro vision for those who have been deprived of a living in the old Way through the Advent of the White Man and the Protection of their family life by the use of women police or women . F. Albre Eft. These problems Are vital if the race is to be saved and it will be possible Only if the Public Eon science is kept live to the native problem he adds. Work among the natives of thie District Hermanns Burg. Via Marres is not an Eagy task states the report. Their Outlook on life is so vastly. Different from ours that misunderstandings and difficulties arise almost of necessity. On the other band one cannot say that they do not respond to the teaching and advice of the station staff. The Gap Between then the Stone ate and the White population is a tremendous one and can be bridged. Only by sympathetic understanding. Bush Tucker was scarce d urine the year since we had Only 461 Points of rain but native game has increased since the last drought and rabbits Are plentiful on several parts of the Reserve. The reason for the excellent health of the natives at the station we bad Only tw0 deat sont of the 299 natives be oar wheaten diet. Since the change from White floor to wheat was made the health of the people has improved remark ably. Give rations we support eur native population with what is absolutely necessary Able bodied men and women receive s 1b. Of wheat or 2 in. Of wheat and 1 in. Of Fiona a. Week together with % of. Of Tea and s of. Of sugar. This h not enough to sus Tain them and makes them search for Bosh Tucker and native tame which is beneficial to them. Children aged persons and mothers Are Given additional supplies. Clothing is supplied to All women and children Binder school age. And the workers get three outfits a year. Patches and thread Are issued every monday to those who care to get them. Soap which is made a the station is issued too the report adds that As sick natives sever come to the station unless a. Eom pained by their families and other v relatives their maintenance is often a strata. Work among these so called wild natives Hows steady Progress and the station is 4b Contact with 100 of them the orb the influence of the Christian natives none left his Home District a far As could be ascertained and no trouble was reported from neighbouring cattle stations. In pre thus years a Good Deal of conflict has occurred Between natives and cattle was. To Correct abusive and false reports from irresponsible individuals let us state that the Mission does not undertake to Supply clothing or european food to those people living in the unoccupied areas but rather that it does everything possible to encourage the Myalls to stay and live the lives of. Their fathers adds the re port. Whether Here at the station under the direct influence of civilisation or in the Bush where his curiosity about the White Man is aroused the native is Najiy in need of guidance. There is hardly native in Australia who has cot heard great tales about the White Nen and has been left bewildered at what in happen ing round him. To leave him alone is like leaving a Blind Man without guidance n the midst or City traffic. It is a tragedy to see Manv of the natives socially and spiritually uprooted through civilisation and left with no occupation but to study the White Man s sins. Burn cards the financial Burden of the station is great. The Commonwealth government makes an annual Grant of �320, but As the total Cost of Upkeep is is out �2,500. The lutheran Church has to find the greater part. The lutheran congregation at App Ila sent valuable consignments of dripping and clothing and also supplied 113 bags of wheat last Harvest. Every Avenue of securing meant of livelihood for the growing population at the station the being exploited. From 12 to 18 people found employment on the ran. At lilt Era Springs a number of horses were trapped and old for a net profit of �112. The Mission Board bought 100 cows to restock after the drought. As the natives could get fair supplies of meat in the shape of rabbits very few cattle were killed for meat but 85 were sold to Realise �229 net. At the station itself 30 men add women Are engaged most of the year. During the Winter months men not actually employed Hunt euro and wallabies and the Mission handled 861 skins last season. Half were sold to too risks. And the remainder Are still held. Curios also provide a source of income and some of the bigger girls and women do fancy work ukr which they Are Naid piecework. These May seem unimportant items but to our native Community they mean More than can be expressed in a few words concludes the report. Although top handling of these goods Means extra it re for the staff the natives Are Able to get a Little extra floor Tea and sugar w the the proceeds. To teach them the value of Money they Are always allowed to take Cash or kind notices 1 = deaths Encell. Of november 11.

Federal Cabinet problems flour tax and pensions talk on monday Mpwo matters of vital importance will a be Tackler by the Federal Cabinet at its meet Nir on monday the imposition of a sales tax on flour to provide funds for the Relief of the wheat Industry and the eur seested raising of the exemption from claims by the government on the estates of deceased Nens toners. It is claimed that the minimum amount of Relief adequate for australian wheat Browere this Vearie Between �3.250.-kx and �4.000.000 while to raise the exemption on pensioners estates to �400. As is proposed would no balt mean an Didt tonal Otharee of Between �200.000 and .�300.000 on top budget. The wheat position provides material for some Xci Tion Aily hard thinking there is a Sharn difference of opinion be tween count re and cite interest Over a flour tax a Hairfi flour tax would mean a Sharn increase in the Price of bread to the cite worker while he in a interests claim that a email tax would not Eive sufficient funds for an adequate Frant the amount of tax. First suggested was �5 10/ a ton which would give the Farmer an additional sum of approximately 6d. A a Nobel. And would add id. To each 2 in. Loaf of bread when it was suggested the opposition became so Strong that d s on Sion began to Centre round a tax of �2 15/ or �3, which would yield 3d. A Bushel and increase the Price of bread a a 2-lb loaf Strong protect the smaller sum brought a Strong pro test from wheat growing interest. The executive of the South australian wheat growers association telegraphed the prime sinister or Lyons that anything less than �5 10/ a ton would be inadequate and others including or. C. A. S. Haw Ker. Etro Nerly supported their con Tention. It is thought that at a meeting convened by the minister of agriculture or Bias ing for monday the opposition of South australian wheat growers to a tax of Leas than �5 10/, unless in conjunction with dec me other Relief will be strongly pressed. Hie Premier or. Butler said today that the buoyant state of Federal finances which showed a surplus of �3.560,000 for the first four months of the financial year indicated clearly that the Federal govern meat was in a position to give a Grant to the Industry in addition to the flour tax. This would be one Way out of the difficulty. Whether it will be taken by the Federal government is not known but it is certain that every aspect of the Posi Tion will be considered at monday s vital meeting. ? it in generally expected that Cabinet will decide to raise the exemption from claims by the government on estates of deceased pensioners from �50 to �400 several ministers favor the adoption of this figure which they maintain can Well be afforded in View of the buoyant Revenue returns. Treasury officials have been preparing estimates of the Cost to the government of the raising of the exemption for several week i Cabinet s decision on both matters will be discussed by the party at its meeting on tuesday As parliament will pro rogue at the end if the month members Are keen to have the legislation before them As Early As possible scored a possible h.

Lead i think the Days of agents general Are gone said sir Arthur Cocks formerly agent general for now South Wales in Adelaide today. The Lead Given by new South Wales on Agente general might Well be considered by other states he said since the financial obligations and requirements of the states have been amalgamated with those of the common wealth and the states no longer go separately on to the London Market for Money the need for agents general has lessened. I happened to be the last agent general that floated a loan for new South Wales in 1925 i. Claim that my presence in London during the loan negotiations which i carried on almost certainly saved new South Wales a half per cent. But things have changed since then. Not fed with. Publicity moreover agents general have not been fed with publicity that would have benefited individual states and Australia As a whole had it been supplied. I asked my government to Cable Home current news so that the English papers could print something else about austra Lia except floods droughts and snakebites. The real Nevee was fragmentary. And was stowed away in insignificant Corners. ? there Are certain business undertakings that need official recognition and 1 handling in London but i believe that As far As new South Wales is Noncen de they Are amply provided for by the offi Cial Secretary or. Ferguson. Similar provision could be made for the other states., an exception might be made for Western Australia which has problems of its own Peculiar to its isolated Western position. An energetic agent general for that state properly fed from his Home base could More than earn Hig remuneration. But speaking generally the Days of agents general Are gone sir Arthur arrived in Adelaide on Busi Ness from Sydney today. He will return to Melbourne on monday.

On Caval Cade he led practically All the Way. In the Handicap he quickly realised that the Pace was too slow for Oro and dashing that horse to the front at the the furlongs Post set up a Gap that his pursuers could not Bridge. On Queen Helen he was always one of the leaders on the outside and Riding a great finish with hands and heels had another easy win.
