ARE OUR GIRLS TOO FREE? [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 11 July 1914
ARE OUR QIRLS9 TOO FREE? The question of whether the girls of Australia and New Zealand are allowed too much freedom is raised by the editor of " Everylady's Journal, " and answered in the July issue by Professor Rentoul, Mod erator of the Presbyterian Church of Aus tralia Mr Paris Nesbit, K.C,; Mr Hfiggs, M.I' ;and Mrs Dr. O'Hara. Professor Rentoul does not think that our girls are allowed too much freedom. Mr Paris Nesbit does not think it would be possible to allow them to100 much free dom, and the Federal member for Capri cornia, believes that " a girl should have liberty, providing parents take the trouble to advise of dangers that attend increased liberty." Altogether it is a very incterest ing and profitable discussion. But perhaps even more generally inter esting will be the discussion in " Every lady's journal " of how the Government Egg-laying Competitions are conducted. In this article Mr J. H.

SThey deserve no sympathy, how over, as they had innuunerable chances which wcre Ifairly thrown away. The. fact of the matter is that It i aa..lnl-tlheir. dlay oUt, and when that s iso there sems uno remedy for it. -As usual. when Footacray play Es sundon, the locals seemed to look for the spot where Mick Madden is ope rtting ilati kick there. The forwards do not seem to realise that it is not for them: to watch the opposing do fenders;, theirs is to get away, so that when the ball is forwarded they aro out in the open to receIve it. In the match against Williamstown, at Footscray, this afternoon, tho tri. color forwards will need to remember thIs.

The theatre itself was, of course, much discussed, and the general opinion was that it was a delcdiedly cosy place of entertainment, well designed and well built; a credit to Mr A. R. P. Crow, the contractor.
