FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933
FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES "FORGIVE Us Our Trespasses," by J. T. Allan (N.S.W. Bookstall). This story, by an Australian, is centred round a young Belgian aviator, Victor St. Hubert, whose mother and sister have been killed, and his home laid waste by the Germans during the Great War. The horrors he witnessed as a boy of 15 live with him, and for- getfulness, even for a moment, is im- possible for him until he meets Andy Carstairs, an Australian, and a pilot in the French Flying Squadron. Carstairs and Victor are attracted to one another, and this attraction grows into a firm friendship, when Victor, dur- ing one of his most spectacular air feats, saves Andy's life. The book shows an intimate know- ledge, and gives vivid description of the war zone. The descriptions of the fly- ing are particularly spirited. The friendship begun during the war is con- tinued in Australia, where the young Belgian, urged by Andy, arrives to pick up the threads of his life again. How he finds love and pe...

Intimate Letters Of a War Nurse [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933
Intimate Letters Of a War Nurse GERTRUDE F. MOBERLY has given us her experiences of a "dinki di" R.R.C. nurse in the form of letters. These are written to one Peter, and cover the war period from July, 1915, to April, 1919. The first is sent from the troopship "Orsova," outward bound, and the last from the home-coming hospital ship, "Castalia." Intimate pen pictures of notable people she met and the London she dis- covered during the time she was matron of the No. 6 Auxiliary Hospital at No. 1 Moreton Gardens, South Kensington make entertaining reading. We find her on hospital ships laden with the wounded and the sick from East Africa and Mesopotamia, and fin- ally we find her in charge of the Hislop War Hospital, Trimilgherry, Secundera- bad. &nbsp; There is no undue stressing of the arduous duties; rather the letters take every opportunity of presenting the brighter side of things. And the Peter to whom the letters are addressed mnst count himself among the luckiest of men...

Baseball Finals in First Round [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933
Baseball Finals in First Round Baseball players finalised the first round of their competition on Satur- day, when they played two deferred matches. By defeating Golden Eagles, Drummoyne ran out the winners of this round. Molly Flaherty, a well-known cricketer, was the outstanding player. Her pitching was excellent. Nell Bourke, Drummoyne's captain, and Nance Devonshire, are both cricketers of note, and Phyllis Twiss is the whiner of the president's cup for swimming as a member of the Drummoyne Ladies' Swimming Club. The Golden Eagles baseball team has been in existence for four years. Three of their members played in the repre- sentative matches in Brisbane this year. &nbsp; Thelma Thane, their captain, is in the unfortunate position of being, with Kath Drennan, one of the only two recog- nised umpires in the Baseball Associa- tion. Nestles won in their match against Sans Souci. For the latter team Rene Shevill fielded brilliantly. Edie Sutton pitched well for the Nestles t...
TEMPERAMENT and STYLE Are IMPORTANT Weekly Golf Hint [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933
TEMPERAMENT and &nbsp; &nbsp; STYLE Are IMPORTANT &nbsp; Weekly Golf Hint &nbsp; ONE of the chief differences &nbsp; &nbsp; between an inexperienced &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; player and an experienced one is, &nbsp; &nbsp; that the missing of a short putt &nbsp; &nbsp; makes the tyro shaky on the &nbsp; &nbsp; greens for the rest of the round, &nbsp; &nbsp; whereas the old hand dismisses &nbsp; &nbsp; it from her mind as one of the &nbsp; natural accidents of this "hum- &nbsp; bling game." &nbsp; Putting is ninety per cent, &nbsp; &nbsp; mental, and the great secret is &nbsp; &nbsp; to concentrate on holing the ball &nbsp; to the exclusion of any thought &nbsp; of missing. All the same, a &nbsp; &nbsp; "foolproof" style is a help. Keep &nbsp; t...
SELECTORS Have Difficult TASK [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933
SELECTORS Have Difficult TASK "Hockey is the least important aspect of the tour. What is vastly more important is the selection of good examples of your womanhood. This applies to the women's hockey team you sent abroad. Everywhere these girls went they played the game in every sense of the word." THUS Miss Edith Thompson, who is the only life member of the Austra- lian Women's Hockey Association, man- ager of the English Hockey team that visited Australia, and who toured Africa &nbsp; with the Australian hockey team in the Empire Games. This remark from one of her experi- ence is not only praise to the team,, it also eulogises the selectors. That their lot is not a happy one, a selector has reason to know. The association supplies the personnel from which must be picked a team worthy, in every sense of the word, of the State or the country they are to represent. The selectors must consider the ability to play, the manner in which a player can adapt herself to team spirit, a...
