Little Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Little Theatres TAORIS FITTON once again shows her flair for perfect casting and produc- tion in the June presentation of the In- dependent Theatre, Van Druten's "Lon- don Wall," and Mr. Don Finley's settings are drab and uninspiring in the tradi- tional manner of the law. The play, which deals with the private lives of the staff, mainly their love affairs, is extremely entertaining throughout, even if the office girls are obviously the crea- tions of a man, and, although one or two incidents are rather improbable-as when the typist who is disapproving, not in love, and no fool, says she has lived for three years with the man she had hoped to marry, or when the up- right young hero takes an almost un- known woman's money with hardly a thank you. No particularly "star" parts have been allowed, and each actor does such excel- lent work that it is almost invidious to single out anyone in particular. Clarence Murphy is a charming philanderer. John Stacey is a born comedian, and would be...
To Make Your Glass Glitter [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
To Make Your Glass Glitter CRUSHED eggshells and vinegar are excellent for cleaning stained or clouded glass, and nothing beats a clean chamois leather for giving it a final polish. Cleaning tools and materials are pernickety possessions. Unless they are trained to keep their proper places when not in use they deteriorate quickly, and much of their value is often wasted. Brooms should be hung up; never al- lowed to stand on their bristles.
Women's Club Exhibition [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Women's Club Exhibition THE WOMEN'S Club, one of the oldest of the sex's strongholds, whose membership includes professional and academic and artistic women, is again holding an exhibition of its members' treasures and work. This is following up last year's suc- cess, the club's exhibition being one of the successful intimate shows of the year. There are clever lace-makers among the members and last year Mrs. Ver- non Cole's exquisite work won the pro- longed gaze of admiration. Sculptor Theo. Cowan's Koala pot- tery struck a new note and Mildred Creed's silver spoons were enough to make even the handsome stout mat- ron go on the sugar standard all over again. Mrs. F. Parsons and Alice Mus kett were other exhibitors who live in the memory. The one-aftemoon show will open on Tuesday June 13.
What Does Your Name Mean? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
What Does Your Name Mean? Pamela means "all sweetness." It is derived from the two Latin words "Pan" (all) and "Mellis" (honey-sweet). Each week the meaning of a name will be published, so be sure to look out for yours. Small Boy's Mother: "I only wish your father would stay at home one day to see how you behave when he's out!" Tiny Tot: What does a "mean man" mean? Father: A mean man is generally a man with means, who means to keep them.
Don't Forget the RHUBARB [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Don't Forget the RHUBARB Rhubarb culture is receiving more at- tention nowadays. Perhaps the parlous condition of many family exchequers is responsible for the greater interest in this easily-grown and palatable vege- table, which lends itself to many at- tractive recipes. With good drainage, rich soil and water in sufficient quantities in warm weather, successful culture is assured. Dig the ground deeply, and see that plenty of old animal manure or some fertiliser is incorporated with the lower layers of the soil. Remember, however, that rhubarb dislikes new manure. Roots are available for planting, and should be set in rows three feet apart each way.
Polo Carnival Starts on June 20 [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Polo Carnival Starts on June 20 Polo is coming to life again. On Saturday there was a practice match in the old town of Cobbitty. Polo acts as a veritable magnet, and Lady Game, accompanied by her guests, Mrs. and Miss Eden, motored from Sydney. Lady Game also brought her daughter, Rosemary. Other visitors included Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Hordern, and Miss Dinah Hor- dern, who loves the sport. Mrs. James Ashton is always at polo to see her sons, who are famed near and far for their polo play. Polo begins in Sydney on June 20 at Kensington.
BASEBALL HAD THRILLS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
BASEBALL HAD THRILLS A MATCH was played at Petersham Oval on Monday, between David Jones' team, winners, and Sans Souci, runners-up of the Winter Competition. David Jones won the toss and sent Sans Souci in. T. Howell, of the David Jones' team, showed excellent form as their pitcher, and their fielding was quite up to standard. They held a lead of eighteen to four, but a marvellous rally by Sans Souci, in the ninth innings, in which they made ten home runs, proved the exciting moment of the day. David Jones won by four. The teams were:-Sans Souci: D. Blake (captain), F. Blade, R. Shevill, H. Benson, H. Prichard, R. Duggan, E. Shevill, K. Meecham, P. Clarke. David Jones: T. Howell, J. Glover, H. Fergu- son, R. Wilson, F. White, D. Kelly, D. Catley, E. Smith, N. Cruden, V. Frew.
Far West Health Scheme [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Far West Health Scheme MRS. S. F. DRUMMOND, whose hos- band, the Rev. S. Drummond, was in- cluded in the King's Birthday honors. Many country hearts were glad to see the name of the Rev. Stanley Drum- mond, M.B.E., among the King's Birth- day honors list. The honor is really a dual one, for Mrs. Drummond has shared in the fine work of her husband. To be freed from physical ills and able to look forward to a normal, healthy and happy life, has been the lot of many hundreds of children in the out- back districts, who have come under the ministrations of the Far West Children's Health Scheme. The scheme, which is now an or- ganised unit in the community, with headquarters established at Manly, ori- ginated with Rev. Stanley Drummond when he was convalescing, after a seri- ous illness, at Manly in 1924. A seaside camp was arranged under the guardianship of Mr. and Mrs. Drum- mond, with 64 outbackers enjoying every moment of their lives. It was soon discovered, however, that some of the ...
CAMERA ART [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
CAMERA ART is the last word in decoration &nbsp; for the walls of the Modern Home, and it is interesting &nbsp; &nbsp; (but not expen- sive) to run a collection and &nbsp; change them on occasion. Photographs seen and liked in The Australian Women's Weekly are purchasable from the Photography Department, The Australian Women's Weekly, 321 Pitt Street, Sydney.
COUNTRY SELF-HELP [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
COUNTRY SELF-HELP COOTAMUNDRA, wED. Mrs. Matt. Sawyer, recently re-elected State President of the C.W.A., made an &nbsp; earnest appeal in her speech at a meet- ing, on Friday afternoon last, for decen- tralisation in all activities of the associa- tion. It is her hope that even the big confer- ence will be eventually held in the country. She asked particularly that the groups should accomplish as much as possible of their own affairs.

INTERESTING PEOPLE... Let's Talk Of [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
INTERESTING PEOPLE . . . Let's Talk Of &nbsp; &nbsp; MISS AMY JOHNSON and Mr. J. A. Mollison embracing before a daring flight. WHAT will the dear old lady who bullied Amy Johnson on her arrival in Sydney for flying, "because a girl is always liable to faint," think of The Flying Coffin, which is to take Mr. and Mrs. Mollison on their latest exploit— London to New York, another flight across the Atlantic, and on to Bagdad. Bagdad sounds rather too Arabian Nightslike to have women graduates, although when guest of honor of the Sydney University Women Graduates' Association (for Amy is herself a gradu- ate) at their annual dinner, Amy John- son remarked that she always feels at home wherever she may be, because she knows she need only let the University women know she has arrived, and she will not have a dull moment. DOROTHEA VON SALVIATIA T)OROTHEA VON SALVIATIA, whom Prince Wilhelm of Prussia, eldest son of the ex-Crown Prince of Ger- many, has just married. Prince Wi...
