Unhappy Homes ...the cause [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

Unhappy Homes . . . the cause By MRS. RUBY DUNCAN To my mind, good home man- agement cannot be "picked up," as some women express it. The enormous strain on a woman's nervous and mental system through incompetence in home management accounts for a vast amount of unhappiness and ill- health. NEARLY four years ago I started the Girls' Progressive Club with the idea of providing some centre which could be both practical and social for the aver- age business and home girl who wished to gain knowledge on the subjects of citizenship, wifehood, and motherhood. By the courtesy of the Royal Busi- ness College principals, premises were secured in Elizabeth Street, and nine giris joined the club. From that small beginning nearly 500 have since joined. Nearly 200 have mar- ried and are scattered over Australia, the Islands, and England. As the majority of business girls do not want long courses of dressmaking, millinery, and cooking, the club pro- vides short courses of three months or shorter ...

PREMIERS for FOUR YEARS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

PREMIERS for FOUR YEARS THE loss of four of their strongest players placed Nereids Hockey team in a difficult position this season. The premiership, which they have won for the past four years in succession, looked quite unattainable. However, their recent easy win over University II is evidence of the efficient manner in which the new members are filling their posts. The Nereids roll- call includes some of the finest players in the State. In 1930 the team was wholly comprised of interstate players. During the past six years, they have only lost four matches. They are again con- fident of retaining the premiership, and it would seem, with reason.

HOMEWORK BOGEY RAISED AGAIN DEPARTMENT'S VIEW [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

HOMEWORK BOGEY RAISED AGAIN DEPARTMENT'S VIEW "Efficient teachers should be able to teach children all that is necessary in school hours. "Several children are now nervous wrecks through excessive homework." THESE statements were made at the annual confer- ence of the Federa- tion of Parents and Citizens' Asso- ciation of New South Wales. A resolution was passed that the pre- sent allocation of homework was not in the best interests of the child, physically and mentally and that the Department should be in- vited to place the whole question before a committee of experts, with a view to modification. The Education Department, which is continually harassed by two types of parents—those who demand that their children shall be given more homework, and those who ask why are their children overworked—has not yet received the pe- tition, but Mr. Drummond (Minister for Education) authorised Mr. Thomas, Di- rector of Education, to make the fol- lowing statement to The Australian Women's Week...

MAY Be a WOMAN As BOOK CENSOR [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

MAY Be a WOMAN As BOOK CENSOR Our Canberra correspondent seems to see a gleam of hope for the appointment of a woman to the Book Censorship Committee. From Our Canberra Correspondent. IT is some weeks since Mr. T. W. White, our Minister for Customs, an- nounced the Fed- eral Government's decision to change the system of book censorship by the institution of a committee of three in place of the present haphazard method of leaving the fate of many excellent books to the caprices of a few depart- mental officials. When I last spoke to him, Mr. White had just issued the ukase that no women need apply, and he was being terribly adamant in the face of a shoal of pro- tests—some of them, admittedly, from feminist "cranks," but many from women whose opinions have always merited the fullest respect. It is now accepted here that the per- sonnel will be chosen entirely from Mel- bourne citizens, the explanation being that this is the only convenient way of promoting the success of the new unde...

the mirror of SYDNEY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

by Jane Ann SEYMOUR SYDNEY is suffering a slight attack of   the "morning after"   disease. Polo, sheep   show, sheep sales!   In the whirl that re~   suits from the fast rate at which we                   live in 1933 these   things are now a memory. Farewells have been said, the last bit of scandal re- counted, and the "country" is gradually returning to engage in those wonderful, soul-satisfying pursuits that writers of fiction imagine fall to the lot of the people on the land. Sydney is settling down to routine dances and card parties. The more for- tunate people are leaving for Kosciusko. * * * TALKING about ice and snow, one of the best places I know of to spend an amusing and enjoyable evening is the Glaciarium. At present it is one of the most crowded places I have ever seen. Everyon...

Ideal Contract Opening "The Responding Hand" ARTICLE 4 [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

Ideal Contract Opening "The Responding Hand" By FRANK CAYLEY ARTICLE 4 The beginner at contract should understand clearly that a bid of "one" in a suit is the ideal opening, and he should expect to see about 90 per cent, of the hands called in this fashion. ALL high original declarations are   contrary to the principles of sound partnership bidding, and should be avoided except on rare occasions. Bridge is a game for two players, so try to consider 26 cards, not just your own 13. THE correct opening declaration on either of the following hands is "one heart": (1) S: K 7 4. H: K Q 4 2. D: A 9 8 6. C: 7 6. (2) S: A 7 4. H: A K Q 9 8. D: A J 6 2. C: 9. The fact that hand (2) is infinitely stronger than hand (1) does not affect the issue, and the reserve values will be shown in one or more subsequent bids. The responding hand has no means of determining whether the declarer's "one" call has been made on minimum require- ments, or whether great reserve strength is held. For ...

The Rearguard of Women's Hospital [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

The Rearguard of Women's Hospital CROWN Street Women's Hospital, the huge grey building in one of the most thickly populated areas, has four city auxiliaries and eight district centres working throughout the year to supply it with linen and hundreds of other accessories that ordinary Govern- ment endowment could not possibly pro- vide.   The linen auxiliary was formed just after the war, when Sydney hospitals had very few organised groups of workers to assist in raising funds. Its objective was to keep the hospital en- tirely supplied with linen, to make gar- ments, and to keep them marked. It has never failed to do this, even though the hospital has grown from a compara- tively small building to the large insti- tution it is to-day.   Last year eight thousand articles of linen, in addition to a sum of money were given to the hospital from this auxiliary. Mrs. Richard Sly, who was elected president at the first meeting of the auxiliary, still holds that off...

Every Woman Should Join a CLUB [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

Every Woman Should Join a CLUB MISS PORTIA GEACH Miss Portia Geach, founder and president of the House- wives' Progressive Association, which has a membership of twelve thousand, is a great ad- vocate for club activities. She has been associated with many clubs, both in Australia and in America. By PORTIA GEACH. EVERY woman should join a club, be- cause this is woman's day and age. Woman must come out of the home and play a larger part in civic, national, and international work. In a nutshell she must take her share of the world's work, because she has a very valuable contribution to give in solving so many social questions. The work of the world is done by united effort. It is only about sixty years ago that women started Ladies' Literary Circles. It was the beginning of club life done in a very genteel way. To-day women stand for reforms, and do so more and more. You should lend your aid, if only to swell the numbers of those who are working for the betterment of human society. Ma...

LITTLE THEATRES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

LITTLE THEATRES CONSISTENTLY sparkling Noel Cow ardish dialogue, as well as the out- standing performance of William Rees, in the part of the practical joking uncle from South America, who pretends he will leave a fortune to whoever of his young relatives makes a financial suc- cess of life first, were the chief items in making last week's Repertory Theatre production, "Making Good," a success. Otherwise, apart from some intriguing saxophone excerpts on the part of Mr. Arthur Spence, and a pleasing change of frocks at frequent intervals among the women characters, this was not one of the Repertory's better presentations. The actors might all with advantage learn the prime importance of the voice in their work, and such properties as red whisky and a gong which is a hollow mockery made the action ridiculous in the wrong places. Frances Cottingham and Arthur Spence (a newcomer, who, although in- audible in the first act, remedied this later; did good work. Marjorie Rogers, the happy-g...
