STAGE LAMENT The Keeper and His Cat [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

STAGE LAMENT The Keeper and His Cat By VINIA DE LOITTE "They never thought to men- tion us," he said. "Why? Who? When?" asked I, ungrammatically. "Any of 'em." "Who's us?" THE reproach concerning "they" came from the stage doorkeeper of Her Majesty's Theatre, Sydney, now being demolished. I thought to hear the confessions of an embittered soul, to share in the revelations of some grievous injustice. I was wrong. His reproaches were inspired by the fact that, though reams had been written about the closing of the old theatre, its many occupants, visitors, and employees portrayed in a decorative souvenir, he and his fellow door- keeper—or was it the cat?—had been passed by. "Snowy" Every stage doorkeeper has a cat, a companion in the daytime, and a con- fidante in the wee sma' hours, when a theatre becomes an eerie place, full of shadows and shivers. Every pet animal sooner or later causes "a bit of a heartbreak," and the theatre cat discovers just as many pit- falls as the tabby who ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

IN an endeavor to discover the most lasting and serviceable kind of finish, the managing-director of a well- known London firm of coachbuilders has had each outside section of his Rolls Royce treated with a different kind of paint or cellulose. * * * NOT only did Robert Peary prove that a white man can live in the Arctic zone, but that a white woman can live there also, provided, of course, that they follow the habits of the natives. His wife was the first woman to winter in the Arctic circle, and his daughter Marie was born there in 1893.

The GUEST Who MUST NOT SHINE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

GUEST Who MUST NOT SHINE The lot of the Hired Guest — like the police- man's — is some-   times not a happy one. F E L I C I T Y GRANT, who earned six pounds a week as a m a n n e q uin and shared a "flatlet" with a girl friend, climbed up to the   fourth floor on that Saturday afternoon in January to find her friend Mai Lane waiting impatiently for her. Mai worked for an agency that sup- plied, among other things, guests for parties, and she was in a serious diffi- culty and wanted Felicity to help her out. "It's a dinner to-night at a Mrs. Errol's house in South Street. Pots of money—her husband's a brewer. Well, a girl let her down, and she rang up our place. "I've got to go to my mother, who's very ill. There's no one we can send. Five of us are down with flu. and the rest are all booked. "Do take my place, Felicity.

when NURSES DANCE and WORK "PRESSING FROCKS for PARTIES" [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

When NURSES DANCE and WORK "PRESSING FROCKS for PARTIES'' Interesting sidelights on the life of the Australian nurse were revealed in the Industrial Court last week on an application by representatives of over 150 hos- pitals for exemption of public and private hospitals from the Stan- dard Hours Act as applied to in- dustries. The question of whether or not hospitals come under the heading of industry was raised by Mr. J. A. Ferguson, who appeared for a number of public institutions, and was reserved by the Judge, Mr. Justice Webb, for argument be- fore the Full Bench of the Indus- trial Court after the law vacation. IN opening the case, Mr. Ferguson said that the hospitals were asking that longer hours than those adopted by tlie Industrial Commission should be ap- plied to certain persons connected with public hospitals, and the application was supported by Mr. Lee in respect of pri- vate hospitals. Mr. Rutherford, for the     Hospital Employees Associati...

VULGAR ATTACK On AUSTRALIANS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

VULGAR ATTACK On AUSTRALIANS Our Speech, Table Manners and "Dowdy" Clothes are London Comedy Hit From Nell Murray, Special Repre- sentative in Europe for The Aus- tralian Women's Weekly. LONDON. Encouraged by the great box office success achieved by Mr. Ivor Novello's play, "Fresh Fields" in which most of the humor consists of guying Aus- tralians, yet another London playwright has picked on our supposedly national failings in the way of table manners, accent, slang, dowdy frocks, terrible suits and all the rest, in order to pro- vide the comic relief in a new West End production. IN "Sally Who?" at the Strand Theatre, Mr. Dion Titheradge has improved (?) on the "Fresh Fields" formula—because he at least spent some time in Australia and has taken the trouble to bring his slang up to date, although he has not been in the Com- monwealth since 1910. Mr. Titheradge was actually born there, of English parents, but he left when he was still a baby. He returned THE CHARMING and talented Je...

AN IMPROMPTU UMPIRE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

AN IMPROMPTU UMPIRE At the conclusion of her match on Saturday last, Doreen Blake, of the Sans Souci team, was called upon to act as umpire for the ensuing match between Golden Eagles and David Jones. It was her first appearance in this role, and serves to illustrate the impor- tance to baseball players of being con- versant with the finer points of the game. With this aspect in mind, the execu- tives of the Baseball Association ar- ranged a series of lectures for the girls. They have been allowed to lapse for the present, but it is hoped that renewed enthusiasm will warrant a repetition of these lectures, which should prove of inestimable value to players.

A TRIP TO FAIRYLAND [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

A TRIP TO FAIRYLAND   By DAPHNE RIX It was a beautiful summer night, and as I lay in my bed the spirit of restlessness was tingling in my veins. Suddenly I felt some- thing touch my hand, and sitting up, I ob- served a tiny man in a bronze suit stand- ing by my bed. "Come, follow me," he chanted, handing me a small silver box. I took it, and felt myself slowly shrink- ing. I followed him, flying swiftly over the land, till we came to rest at the door of a beautiful palace. We entered, and there sat the Queen on a throne of woven silver and gold threads interlaced with ivory rosebuds. "Welcome," said the Queen, as I bowed be- before her. I seated myself on the step at her feet. The Star Fairies came dancing in, PRIZE Card to Joan |dressed in brocaded Lintott, Trebla Court, |silver evening gowns. Queen St., Woollahra. |They held a long gol- den thread closely hung with tiny sparkling crystal bells that tinkled merrily. Following the Star Fairies came a dainty Blos- som Fa...

ASSOCIATE From GRIFFITH WINS GOLF TITLE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

ASSOCIATE From GRIFFITH WINS GOLF TITLE   MISS VEDAS EBERT (Griffith) Mountains champion, Miss Kitty Crago (Leura) at , winner of the title, with the Blue Parkman, runner-up. In circle: Miss the top of her swing. Through- out the week, at t h e N.S.W. Club's course at La Perouse, star golfers from the great open spaces battled for the annual championship. THE result was not surprising. Miss Vedas Ebert, from Griffith, the winner, had al- ready given city dwellers a taste of her quality as run- ner-up to Miss Lefebvre in the State champion- ship two years ago. Her victory in the final, in which she defeated Miss Kitty Parkman, the Blue Mountains champion, stamps Miss Ebert as a champion, and a strong con- tender for the N.S.W. open title. Her success can be attributed to her long, powerful drives, which far out- distanced her opponents. Tall and loosely built, the new cham- pion left-hander has a remarkably free swing, her one weakness being faulty putting. The wind-swep...

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

The Rest Cure STARING out through the carriage windows at the spreading vista of the country, Zoe concentrated in her gaze all the distaste she felt for it—not for any special quality that it possessed, but for its lack of all that she loved and enjoyed in life. The monotone of the train, a single, incessant sound in a vast void of silence, seemed to her like a moc- kery of the grand chorus she loved the roar of the city's traffic, the babble of its million mouths. How she longed to hear now, just once again, even far off, the music of that tumult! She remembered with yearning how she would lie in bed in her flat at night and in the mornings, and listen to the voice of the city chanting, chanting to her heart. Often she had thought of all the little sounds that murmur contained, and now, in the drone of the train she fancied she heard them again. The growl of trams, the grind- ing squeal as they rounded a steep curve, the wild, distorted cries of paper boys, the musical notes of hor...

FRIENDSHIPS THAT HAVE LASTED [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

FRIENDSHIPS THAT HAVE LASTED In the everyday rush to send the children off to school, cook meals, wash dishes, clean the home, do laundry, mend clothes, tend to the garden, go shopping, and answer the door to house-to-house canvassers, how many women find time to make and keep friends? DOROTHEA VAUTIER, a young Sydney radio announcer, seeking an answer to this question, asked her radio listeners to write in about any friendships of theirs which had lasted for a period of five years or more. The replies show that there are some people at least who have managed to squeeze a friend in between the eternal triangle of washing, mending, and cooking. F.G.P., of Penshurst, drew back the curtain and set the scene, years ago, in a beautiful garden with a flowering May tree and five little girls with long pigtails and white pina- fores. "Three were sisters, the other two my sister and I," she writes. "We all went to the same school, and on Saturday afternoons we used to explore an old house wh...

POiNTS OF ViEW Church Politics [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

Church Politics STRIFE and discord exist in two great churches. Bitter controver- sies in the Church of England and the Presbyterian Church are featured in the newspapers like parliamentary politics. Pious people should not deplore this disputa- tion. The phrase, "church militant," was coined by our forefathers to signify that religion was a living, forceful thing. Admittedly, controversy has its dangers. Instead of being a broad, honest argument, it may degenerate into a miserable faction fight between cliques. That occurs when the great body of adherents of an institution are apathetic and indifferent, or voiceless. The public ven- tilation of the two current church disputes will help maintain the issues on broad lines.—G.W. * * * Victoria Leads the Way WHAT New South Wales needs is a few men of large generosity and interest in the cul- tural welfare of their State to emulate the ex- ample of Sir Macpherson Robertson, whose latest gift of £100,000 was announced at the opening of t...

PRIVATE SECRETARY Fascinating, But NOT So EASY!: Careers for Women... [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

PRIVATE SECRETARY Fascinating, But NOT So EASY! By Our Special Commissioner Careers for Women . . . Secretarial work offers a pleasant and remunerative goal with dignified status for both the girl seeking employment and the ambitious clerical worker desiring to improve her position and prospects. There is a steady and regular demand for efficient girls capable of acting as private, company, and organising secretaries, which represents the three divisions into which this work may be broadly divided. TO those contemplating a secretarial career, there is the added inducement of an easier start than in many other spheres. Inquiries through commercial and business houses, training colleges and Government officers, whose job it is to watch such matters, reveal that the greatest field of employment for girls, even at the present time, is in steno- graphic and commercial work-neces- sarily the preliminary to the more re- munerative posts. Still, there is danger of overcrowding with girls of...

An Editorial WOMEN DON'T KNOW ABOUT UNDIES JULY 8, 1933. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 8 July 1933

WOMEN DON'T KNOW ABOUT UNDIES An Editorial   JULY 8, 1933 "A plaything let woman be, pure and fine like the precious stone, illumined with the virtues of a world not yet come." THUS spake Zara- thustra, who preached the gospel of the super-man. It is a noble gospel for a super-man. It is a poor and cheap cyni- cism as interpreted by most of the mere men who strut the stage. Every effort by women to take a part in public affairs is baulked by this precious jest. Women in Parliament? Oh, no, we are told, politics are too low for women. What about the Church then; why not women in the ministry? Here, strange enough, the answer seems to be that the ministry is too high and too fine a thing for women. In the Federal Parliament last week an Honorable Senator amused the House by holding aloft a selection of women's undies. Naturally the House "burst into ironic applause," as one paper reported. Women's underwear remains one of the last butts of the prurient. But we are not con...
