THE APPLE TREE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
THE APPLE TREE By CHERIE PEMBERTON When I was very tiny I think I was only three— I had a favorite little nook, Under the apple tree. There were lots of pretty flowers, Lilies, roses, all in bloom, But I liked the apple tree the best, In the merry month of June. The little girl across the way Would play with Fred and me; But I didn't like her very much— 'Cos she didn't like my tree. She said, 'That it was bent and old With only one apple," so I'm told. But I don't care. Oh, no! not I! For I still play there, when summer goes by. A prize of 10/- to Cherie Pemberton (10). 20 Spring St., West End, Brisbane.
WHAT IS IT? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
WHAT IS IT? All who want to have me, Reach up with your hand; On your tiny tiptoes Some of you may stand; Yet, before you do so, All of you must say— &nbsp; "Please," and then I'll let you Pick me off the spray; Letting those who wish to Eat me up to-day. (To get the answer, read down the first &nbsp; letter of each line.) Prize Card to Allan Ramshaw, 36 Northum- berland St., Maryville, Newcastle.
Be SMART, But DON'T Overdo It Weekly Golf Hint [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
Be SMART, But DON'T Overdo It Weekly Golf Hint IT is a mistake to try and play in an afternoon confection. It is not only un- comfortable, but bad form. Silk stockings with sports clothes look wrong, and they are bad for the feet. The wearing of high heeled shoes ruins your balance, as well as the putting greens. The wearing of necklaces, diamond rings, pendants, and other jewellery does not improve the appearance of your sports at- tire, and is likely to have a disas- trous effect on your game by im- peding your swing or restricting your grip.
LUSTRE HOSIERY SPORTS GIRLS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
LUSTRE HOSIERY SPORTS GIRLS THE Lustre Hosiery Sports Girls are noted not only for their prowess in the playing fields, but for their pictur- esque uniforms. In this matter the directors of the firm have been most generous. &nbsp; A hockey team was formed for the &nbsp; first time last year, and their uniforms, &nbsp; comprising black tunics and salmon col- ored blouses, with blazers in the same color scheme, excited general admiration in the march past. But it was as far back as 1925 that the Lustre girls first came into promin- ence. Cricket and tennis were their main activities, but in addition to this, they turned their attention to charity. Approximately £1500 was raised in the succeeding two years for Hospitals and for United Charities. Then, perhaps, remembering that "charity begins at home," Lustre Girls won the Popular Girl contest. The organiser of all these activities is Miss Percival. She is also assistant secretary of the N.S.W. Women's Hockey As...

CRICKET CLUB GROUNDS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
CRICKET CLUB GROUNDS IN the condition of women's cricket grounds there is undoubtedly room for general improvement. Central Park, Chatswood, affords a striking example of what can be accomplished by women cricketers. The Annandale Waratah Cricket Club, too, have shown enter- prise, for they hold the distinction of being the first women's club to have their own scoring board installed. The Kuring-gai Women's Cricket Club is forging ahead. Three years ago the council granted them a piece of land for a playing area, and they are now hard at work transforming what was just scrub land into a delightful cricket ground. August 26 has been marked for Arbor Day, and 50 trees will be planted under the direction of a very fine com- mittee, of which Mr. Downs, of the Town Planning Association, is a mem- ber. This lead is one that other clubs with their own grounds might well fol- low. In some instances their grounds are in such a deplorable condition that matches are robbed of all pleasure.
THERE'S NO AGE LIMIT [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
THERE'S NO AGE LIMIT Vigoro is a sport which knows no age limit, at least, from the viewpoint of extreme youth! IN the majority of the Vigoro Associa- tions there are teams comprising children between nine and sixteen years of age. They are known by the rather quaint title of Midgets, but neither youth nor title proved a handicap to the Midgets of the St. George Women's Vigoro Association. In their last match against their seniors the Midgets regis- tered a decided victory. In the Bankstown to Sydenham Com- petition, the Midgets are all twelve years of age—and younger.
HARDCOURTS TOURNAMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; HARDCOURTS TOURNAMENT WHAT WOULD the M.C.C. have to say of these barrackers? Golden Eagle players urge their comrades on in the Baseball match against David Jones at the Domain. Unsettled weather has occasioned cer- tain delay in the Combined Hardcourts Tournament, but the finals of several events have now been contested. Miss Selwyn annexed the Ladies' Singles Championship for the second time. Her opponent in the finals, Miss Williams, was, apparently, at a disadvan- tage on the slower court. Miss Selwyn, however, displayed a fine sense of tim- ing and of stroke control. In the mixed doubles, Mrs. Harper and Mrs. Lloyd, forming an excellent combination, easily defeated Miss Selwyn and Miss Betts. A deceptive underarm service was principally responsible for Miss Ander- BASKETBALL IS STRENUOUS A HIGH PASS by one of the Citizens team in their match against Rozelle II. at the Show Ground. son's lead in the first...

Display By Champions [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
&nbsp; Display By &nbsp; &nbsp; Champions &nbsp; Exhibition matches at Manly &nbsp; have created keen local interest. &nbsp; Joan Hartigan and Nell Hall &nbsp; played the singles, in which the &nbsp; &nbsp; former won in two straight sets. &nbsp; Hall and Thompson were their &nbsp; respective partners in the doubles &nbsp; of a display that was not only &nbsp; interesting, but instructive.
WHY not WOMEN'S TENNIS TEAM From OVERSEAS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
WHY not WOMEN'S TENNIS TEAM From OVERSEAS That negotiations are afoot to invite a men's team of tennis players out from England, and that a team of men players may soon leave these shores for Noumea, following on the tour of our Davis Cup players, augurs well for the future of tennis in Australia — but what of our women tennis players? ARE they always to remain satisfied with just playing in the Austral- asian Championships as their highest achievement? In New South Wales we have had visiting men's teams from Eng- land, France, Japan and America. It was during the latter's visit that we had the opportunity of seeing in action the only overseas woman player to visit Aus- tralia, Mrs. Van Ryn. Would it not be possible for Australian and State bodies to foster visits from women with inter- national records as tennis players? To date not one team of women play- ers has visited these shores. If the Aus- tralasian Lawn Tennis Association can only finance men's teams, then could not the Wo...
DAPHNE AKHURST MEMORIALS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
DAPHNE AKHURST MEMORIALS Daphne Akhurst was a Normanhurst girl, and in 1917 won the New South Wales Schoolgirls' Championship. For five successive years she again won this title. This record renders the presenta- tion of a trophy, to be open for compe- tition to schoolgirls, a very fitting tri- bute to her memory. This trophy for the junior ranks has been presented by the Western Suburbs Tennis Association to the New South Wales Lawn Tennis Association. It will be known as the "Daphne Akhurst Memorial Shield." A further memorial takes the form of a Cup, presented by the New South Wales Lawn Tennis Association to the Australian Association for the winner of the Australian Women's Singles Championship. Each of these trophies will be held by the respective winners at the annual events, but cannot be won outright.
Sporting Romances! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
Sporting Romances! &nbsp; Miss Phyl McColgan, of the Y Browns Hockey Club, has announced her en- gagement to Mr. Kevin Bowland, of Dar- linghurst. Another Hockey player to announce her engagement is Laura Meredith, of the 'Lathallions' Club. She is engaged to Mr. Allan Brown, of Burwood. In Brisbane Mrs. Peatfield, Sports Secretary of the Y.W.C.A., is at present in Brisbane, at- tending the National Conference. The Misses Gladys Fairs, Gwen Pittard, and Rene Swinfleld, all well-known sports girls, are with her. Miss Barbara Peden, member of the Killara Badge tennis team, and a noted cricketer, is also in the northern State for the conference. She will devote some time during her stay to coaching the tennis players.
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933
Gargle Listerine every two hours when you have a cold or sore throat Physicians have long urged a night and morning gargle with full-strength LISTERINE, the safe antiseptic with the pleasant taste. For LISTERINE kills germs of all types in 15 seconds. No faster killing time has ever been accurately recorded by science. The morning and night gargle is deemed sufficient, in time of normal health, to keep germs under control and maintain a cleanly condition of the mouth. But when infection is actually under way, which is the case when you have a cold, sore throat, or inflamed condition of the oral tract, authorities urge that the gargle be repeated every two hours. MOUTH GERMS REDUCED 98% Repeated tests show that full-strength LISTERINE Antiseptic actually reduces bacteria on the surfaces of the mucous mem- brane 98%. Do not be afraid to use LISTERINE Antiseptic un- diluted. Only in this way can you get the full benefit of its ger- micidal action. Remember that LISTERINE Antiseptic is ...
