New Windows Will Make Us Sigh for the Old [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

New Windows Will Make Us Sigh for the Old No longer will the unfortunate girl walking along the street in blissful in- nocence wonder vaguely who is that dreadful object ap- proaching, only to realise that it is her own distorted reflection in a shop window. For news comes from London that the latest shop windows are non reflecting. The window is made in two parts. The lower one starts well back at the bottom, curving upwards to a ridge at the front at about six feet from the ground, while the upper part is an inverted replica of the lower, and curves back from the ridge to the top. All reflec- tions are directed to black baffle boards at the top and bottom of the window. These new windows, which do good work in that they keep out reflections of the sky and the popular modern bright signs from nearby premises, have their disadvantages. What will we do without our handy street mirrors to tell if our hair and clothes are what we hope, or whether our nose is all that it should be?

GLOVE Hints— and OTHERS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

GLOVE Hints— and OTHERS Never before have gloves been so fea- tured as they are in present fashions. Not only does every afternoon and even- ing frock have its own accompanying fabric gloves, but coats and street suits as well. Practical women will invest in a good glove patter at once, and will turn out their own from remnants of material. When bought in the shops or made to order, fabric gloves are apt to be ex- pensive; although at the time of writing the fashionable white pique ones may be bought in London stores at from 3/11 to 8/11 a pair.   In Bond Street, by the way, a girl who attracted much attention was dressed in a tri-color scheme. Her suit in navy blue wool was completed with a vivid scarlet skirt, and over it she wore a swagger coat of white linen, with gloves to match, and fastening with tabs of scarlet braid. Plenty of brown lacquer satin blouses with cravat collars and draped sashes, worn with oatmeal colored suits, are to be seen about London nowadays...

MADE JOB For HERSELF In LONDON Women in Business—No. 4 [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

MADE JOB For HERSELF In LONDON From Nell Murray, Special Repre- sentative in Europe for The Aus- tralian Women's Weekly. LONDON.   Women in Business—No. 4   YET another Australian has succeeded in making a niche for herself in London life as the result of her own initiative. Less than a year ago, Miss Mildred Parker (daughter of the late Sir Henry Parker, of West Australia) was in business in Melbourne. She left for England last October, and just before Easter was appointed "recep- tionist'' to one of London's oldest established firms dealing in women's fashions. The idea is popular in America, but this is the first time on record that one of London's conserva- tive West End stores has adopted it. According to Miss Parker, the abso- lute essentials of a receptionist include a thorough knowledge of all the stock which is contained in the acres of space covered bv the departments, an expert knowledge of fashions, and, above all, an inexhaustible supply of pat...

WHEN FATHERS OBEY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

WHEN FATHERS OBEY     TAKING Cuthbert to school is the modern     variation of taking little Willie to the   pantomime. General Mackay, in his desire     to co-operate in these "get together" ideas of masters and parents, now allows his boys       at Cranbrook to ask their parents twice a   week to take part in the opening ceremonies     of the day—called "Assembly."     Each form takes it in turn. So the tired     business man has to get up earlier and go     back to school (for, of course, he dare not       refuse). But often he likes it.     One boy said to his father, who was   climbing into his car, ready to drive away     from schoo...

THE PATH OF "WRITE" [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

THE PATH OF "WRITE" WHEN next you are puzzling over the caligraphy of some friend, en-   deavoring to decipher a letter that looks as if it were written in symbols, try and remember something of the processes through which writing has passed since the far-away days of stone carv- ing! Mrs. Francis Par- sons is an au- thority on this subject, and mem- bers of the Art Circle of the Lyceum Club listened to an in- teresting address from her recently. By the aid of hand-written charts, Mrs. Parsons de- tailed the methods that had been em- ployed in the effort to find a quicker means of expression than was provided in the stone carvings and Egyptian hieroglyphics. Tracing the influence of tools on let- tering, with special reference to the reed, chisel, and the quill, the speaker showed how a freer use of the pen had affected the writing of the classic Roman capitals, and had led to the de- velopment of many new forms. Notable among these were the half-uncials and the round u...

WOMAN and HER WORK "Princely" Workers In Hospital Cause [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

WOMAN and HER WORK         "Princely" Workers In Hospital Cause THE Royal Prince Alfred Hospital auxiliary is now occupying new premises at Warwick Building, Hamil- ton Street, City. Here, in a large room on the tenth floor, there will be heard the rumble of sewing machines, the mur- mur of conversation, the tinkling of tea-cups in the intervals when this band of busy women pause in their work of making the linen goods for use at one of Sydney's greatest hospitals. The reopening of beds at Prince Alfred has meant an increased demand for linen. The auxiliary committee is re- sponding nobly to this demand. Mrs. Lewis Packer is in charge of the linen committee that works at the auxiliary's rooms. One very attractive feature of this work is the making of the "Packer" quilts for use on the children's beds. Mrs. Packer thinks out and selects ani- mal designs, which are sometimes a cat, a horse, dog, or the like, to amuse the little suffe...

HOSPITAL AUXILIARIES TO CONFER IN SYDNEY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

HOSPITAL AUXILIARIES TO CONFER IN SYDNEY The hospital auxiliary movement is spreading throughout the State, and is no longer confined to metropolitan in- stitutions. There are 176 hospitals in N.S.W., and many of these have now established auxiliary committees. In order to co-ordinate the work of these committees, the Hospital Commis- sion has decided to hold a conference in Sydney next October, during Health Week. It is hoped that his Excellency the Governor will be present at the opening session on October 17. In addition to business sessions there will be others, at which lectures will be given by leading medical men. A social programme is also being arranged.

HOUSEWIVES Will Urge PRISON REFORM [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

HOUSEWIVES Will Urge PRISON REFORM Prisoners should come out of gaol bet- ter citizens than before they went in. This is the opinion of the Housewives' Progressive Association, which will make prison reform part of their social wel- fare work for the year. THE association propose to hold a conference and draw up certain suggestions for reform which they will submit to the Government for conside- ration. In the meantime members are ac- quainting themselves with conditions of the prisoners in Long Bay Gaol, and, with this end in view, several groups have already visited the gaol, and visits by other groups of members will be ar- ranged for. To be still further informed on the work carried out in the State prisons, the association invited Mr. J. R. Lee, a former Minister for Justice, to speak to them at their rooms. Mr. Lee explained that right through- out the world the reform principles were replacing the hard and fast methods. The old idea of making a man a burden to himself and all...

SEWING DEPOTS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

SEWING DEPOTS ONE of the most successful efforts made on behalf of unemployed wo- men is to be found in the sewing centres now operating in the city and suburbs. The National Council of Women in- augurated the movement in co-operation with the Unemployment Relief Council some time ago, but the depots are now under Government control. The city depot is at 217A George St., and others have been established at Bankstown, Chatswood, Burwood, Kog- arah, Leichhardt, North Sydney, Parra- matta, Waterloo, and Woollahra. Women who wish to obtain two half days' work a week at any of these centres first of all register at the Wo- men's Section of the Labor Bureau. George St. North. At the depots they are engaged in the making and re- conditioning of garments. Besides earning a few shillings, which does not in any way interfere with their relief money, should they be in receipt of such, they gain valuable experience. Thoroughly efficient cutters and super- visors are in charge of each depot, and...

NURSES MIGHT SHARE IN LOTTERY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

NURSES MIGHT SHARE IN LOTTERY By BARBARA GOODE MATTHEWS, A.M.A. COMPARISONS are interesting . . . . Take for instance the remarks made   by the matron of the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (Mary Phyllis Boissier, O.B.E.), to Mr. Justice Webb, of the In- dustrial Commission: "Nurses told her they would rather be on duty than have too much time off." "The home sister at the hospital had   told her, 'They were rather too exuberant for her liking, and it took her all her time to keep them quiet in the home.' " "The nurse who is interested in her work does not want too long time off duty. After a day's work nurses fre- quently prepared food for a dance and then danced." Compare these remarks with those of a leading surgeon of Melbourne, Dr. Hugh Devine, who recently delivered this as his considered opinion, to a body of nurses, during a lecture:— "Under the present conditions of nursing, after 15 years, a nurse is no use for God, man, or country. Her nerves are go...

Woman Delegate for League of Nations Assembly [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

Woman Delegate for League of Nations Assembly The anouncement that Mrs. Jamieson Williams had been selected as the woman member of the Australian dele- gation to the League of Nations Assem- bly, to be held in Geneva next Septem- ber, was received in Sydney with great satisfaction. MRS. JAMIESON WILLIAMS is well known in Sydney, and though she   has been abroad for some time, she is remembered for her very keen and prac- tical interest in many of our public activities. Mrs. Williams is the widow of the Rev. Jamieson Williams. He was minister of the Presbyterian Church, Manly, at the time of his death, which took place when Mrs. Williams was en route to England. There were few of our activities in which Mrs. Williams did not play some part. First and foremost, she was a keen temperance worker. She was State president of the Women's Christian Temperance Union for three years, hon. MRS. JAMIESON WILLIAMS recording secretary for the Australian W.C.T.U. for five years, and h...
