Woman a Magic Looking-Glass [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Woman a Magic Looking-Glass VIRGINIA WOOLF, in "A Room of One's Own," has the following striking pas- sage :— Women have served all these centuries as looking-glasses, possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size. Without that power, probably the earth would still be swamp and jungle. The glories of all our wars would be unknown. We should still be scratching the out- lines of deer on the remains of mutton bones and bartering flints for sheep- skins. Whatever may be their use in civi- lised societies, mirrors are essential to all violent and heroic action. That is why Napoleon and Mussolini both in- sist so emphatically upon the inferi- ority of women, for if they were not inferior they would cease to enlarge. That serves to explain in part the necessity that women so often are to men. And it serves to explain how rest- less they are under her criticism; how impossible it is for her to say to them, "This book is bad; this pic- tu...

The Wrong Anthem [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
The Wrong Anthem WHEN a British cruiser sailed into Las Palmas recently the crew in a Spanish gunboat in port lined up to take the usual salute. The British cruiser band burst into the old Span- ish royalist national anthem. At once the crew of the Spanish gunboat dis- persed. Spain has been a republic for two years. The Civil Governor of Las Palmas put in a protest to the com- mander of the British cruiser, who apologised for playing the old royalist national anthem, so there will not be a war after all.
Career Began At Seven Years [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Career Began At Seven Years &nbsp; Miss Margaret Scriven, who, &nbsp; in partnership with Jack Craw- &nbsp; ford, won the mixed doubles &nbsp; championship of France at Paris &nbsp; last week, is just twenty-one &nbsp; years of age. She began her ten- &nbsp; nis career at the early age of &nbsp; seven, and, ten years afterwards, &nbsp; annexed the English junior &nbsp; championship. In 1931 she was &nbsp; among the last eight in the &nbsp; Wimbledon championships. Her most effective strokes are her &nbsp; drive and her volley. Winning &nbsp; the mixed doubles is the more &nbsp; meritorious for this pair when &nbsp; one remembers that all matches &nbsp; in Paris are played on hard- &nbsp; courts.
Golf TESTS With England [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Golf TESTS With England . . . Why Not? IN ORDER that Australia might have the benefit of seeing and playing with &nbsp; some of their best golfers, the English Ladies' Union suggested and approved, some two or three years ago, to send a team. Unfortunately, however, since then the economic conditions in Eng- land have not improved, and the visit is as far off as ever. It is a pity, because a tour of the leading British women players, headed by the present champion, Miss Enid Wilson, would be helpful in raising the standard of play here, and would create much good feeling and friendliness be- tween the two countries. * * * FORMER State champion, Miss Odette Lefebvre, who recently returned from the south of France, has actively com- menced competition play at her club Killara—again qualifying well in the club championship last week. She has not yet reached the form that marked her play two seasons ago. Enthusiasts are looking forward to a thrilling battle between Miss Lefebvre...

News of the Clubs &nbsp; &nbsp; LOOKING FIT and well, Mrs. T. A. &nbsp; Daly, of Oatlands, returned to town this &nbsp; week, after an enjoyable seven weeks &nbsp; at "Momalong" Station, Berrigan, the &nbsp; &nbsp; beautiful country home of her sister, &nbsp; Mrs. John Gorman. Both Mrs. Daly and her medico husband are enthusiastic &nbsp; members of the increasingly popular &nbsp; Oatlands club. Dr. Daly, as a committee- &nbsp; man, is lending a valuable hand in guid- &nbsp; ing its destiny, now that the club mem- &nbsp; bers have assumed full control of the &nbsp; course. &nbsp; * * * THE BONNIE DOON club-house pre- &nbsp; sented a gay appearance one evening &nbsp; last week, when the annual dance at- &nbsp; tracted 248 members and their friends.

Skating Fashions are Different [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Skating Fashions are Different AT the opening oí the skating season a week or two ago it was hard to realise that skating as indulged in by the English was quite a stately and dignified affair, even in the Edwardian days. Men skated in tall hats and frock coats, and the ladies (Heaven help them) wore skirts that escaped the ice by a couple of inches. But the Eng- lish have always skated. Pepys, as far back as 1662, notes the sport in his diary, and those who have read Virginia Woolf's "Orlando" will recall her vivid picture of the fair and skating carnival held on the Thames during the historic frost of 1683-4. Two hundred years later in 1864, Jackson Haynes, an American introduced dancing on the ice to Eng- land and the Continent. Now, of course, waltzing couples, and exhibition dancers who might be straight from a Russian ballet are to be met with at all the best rinks.

Gargle Listerine every two hours when yon 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 ...

Intimate Jottings The G.G.'s Table [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
The G.G.'s Table EVERYBODY has heard of Lady Isaacs' wit and gift of tongues. But, in addition to her social at- tainments, she is a splendid home- maker. One of her greatest interests is the menu of the Vice-Regal home, and women visitors say they have only one fault to find with the G.G.'s table. And this is it: they simply can't resist the beautifully cooked dishes, which is not altogether good for ladies who have to be calory-wise in order not to be pound foolish. But it's a nice fault, isn't it ? From Sheep To Oil By tradition, sheep-growing is al- ways associated with the name of Win- ter-Irving, but "Bill," who married Audrey Hordern the other week, puts his faith in oil, and holds down a job in a big company in Melbourne. Bill was "finished off" at Cambridge, and it seems to help him with his business, which is about the best kind of finish- ing touch. Doone Doings Nobody should be better informed of London life and Continental social and artistic activities than Doone's pri...

JUST CHATTER [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
JUST CHATTER Here is a game which some of you may not know how to play:- Two children hold either end of a rope, and the others playing have to walk under it without bending their necks. This is very funny when the rope is held low, and the chil- dren struggle to get under it. Of course, anyone bending their neck is out. Here you see a kookaburra sitting on a branch. Now I want you all to send me a little story about a kookaburra for the next issue. If your story is published, you will receive a beautiful Prize Card. Here is a little trick to show your friends:- Put a handkerchief on a table, and ask someone to pick it up by the both ends, and without letting go, tie a knot. This is quite simple to do when you know how. The secret is to fold your arms and then pick up the handkerchief by &nbsp; the ends. When unfolding your arms, the handker- chief ties itself into a knot. Did you know that some kan- garoos have lived in captivity for 25 years. It is not known how long they ...
Country Tennis Players Visit Sydney [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Country Tennis Players Visit Sydney ABOUT twenty representatives from &nbsp; the Orange Catholic Tennis Associa- &nbsp; tion were in Sydney over the week-end as the guests of the N.S.W. Catholic Lawn Tennis Association. On Saturday night they were tendered a "Welcome" dance at the Arts Club. These arrangements were in the capable hands of Miss Ford, hon. secretary, and Miss O'Connor, assistant-secretary. Large parties were arranged by the affiliated clubs from Woollahra, Par- ramatta, Bondi, Paddington, Hurlstone Park, Ashfield, Lane Cove, and Rand- wick. On Sunday matches were played be- &nbsp; tween the two associations, and the N.S.W. women were victorious in their section, winning 6 sets to 4; the Orange team, 7 sets to 5. In the evening both teams were entertained by Mr. Madden, president of the N.S.W. Association, at Bondi. Country tournaments were played at Muswellbrook and Wagga over the week-end. Allison Hattersley, Nell Hall, and Joan Hartigan went ...

What Smart Sydney &nbsp; Women Are Wearing &nbsp; Camera pictures reveal charm of the wearers, and chic and distinction of attire in intimate garden settings &nbsp; &nbsp; These charming pictures, so delightfully pre- &nbsp; senting the correctness and &nbsp; chic of four interesting mem- &nbsp; bers of Sydney society, were &nbsp; taken by The Australian &nbsp; Women's Weekly photographic department.

Woman and Her Work Are CHURCH DANCES & CARDS Wrong? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Woman and &nbsp; Her Work &nbsp; Are CHURCH DANCES & CARDS Wrong? Should women shake "the light fantastic toe," &nbsp; and prove their skill at card games, to raise funds for church purposes? This is a burning question oc- &nbsp; &nbsp; cupying the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; minds of many committee members at the moment. S Y D N E Y &nbsp; church- &nbsp; h e 1 p ers were &nbsp; going their un- worried way in &nbsp; this matter until &nbsp; they learned of &nbsp; discussion at the &nbsp; recent Presby- &nbsp; terian General &nbsp; Assembly, as to &nbsp; whether card- &nbsp; &nbsp; playing and dan- &nbsp; cing were desir- &nbsp; able as a means of raising money &nbsp; for church pur-' &nbsp; poses. It was decided at the assembly to re- quest the Presbyteries throughout the State to consider the...
