Sydney Women Footballers [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
*Sy-l»ey Women Footballers If the teams attached to the new Jy-formed Ladies' Rugby Football League of N.S.W. prove themselves as expeditious and capable as the promoters of the movement, they should sweep all before them. So little time has been wasted since the appointment of the executive officers, that the organisation is now in working order, a place and day arranged for training, and members are being enrolled. There is no false pride about these would-be footballers. Though they, have followed the game closely as spectators, they realise that their knowledge will be wanting when they take the field. They are out to learn tactics as well as play. All Love Football. According to Miss Eula'ie Stag poole, the first hon. secretary of the N.S.W. Ladies' Rugby Football Lea gue, who is a scenic artist and pro-. perty builder, and worked for six months as a stage hand at the Adel phi, the girls are not out for mere display.

Colour Schemes [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
Colour Schemes 'The Jester': It's always a dan gerous experiment to disagree with a woman, especially with — but no, I won't say who in case it might be recognised- But I came across an article the other day, all about col ours, and things for women s clothes — and why she doesn't wear more, etc., etc., to fourteen places of deci mals. And a woman wrote it. Now, like the writer, I love colours. But a little goes a long way. Besides, it's only one woman in every hundred who knows exact ly what colour suits her — and then she's not sure about it! And cun iously enough, the only two colours that really suit every girl are the two which aren't, to be srecise, co lours at all — namely, black and white. You see I hold no brief for strong colours ever. If* our girls are going to wear them, either they — the girls^ — are ugly, in case colours will accentuate it, or else thev are pretty and the colours will detract from it. As I have previously re marked, the charm of a beautiful MUFFED TO T...

A Whited Sepulchre [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
ft wkitd S^Mcire ? u ? The old hag rampant that ' masquerades in this country as a Leading Daily has succeeded for some little time past in the appa rently impossible task of improving upon Nature. That worthy old Dame made the ass and the goat as her classics of imbecility: but the old hag of the Terrace has succeeded in combining in her own person the long ears or the former and the inane bleat of the latter. No doubt driven thereto by star vation as a result of long agistment on the barren pastures of 'Na- tionalism,' the 'what-is-it,' half-ass, hal£goat, has lent its ears to the winnings of the 'unco' guid,' and its throat to their blitherings. The chief symptom of its paranoia is a mania for censorship. It would censor the amusements of the peo ple, their eating and drinking, their reading and thinking, their pictures and their passions — indeed, any and every one of their doings and incli nations capable .in the least degree of censorship. Unfortunately our contemporary fails ...
THE MIRROR JUNE 26, 1921. out of the Dust Bin [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
JUNE 25, 1921. wt tf tie Dist Bin ? v ? No more uninspiring and less in- , teresting mental fodder could be distributed through the cables than the squeezed4emon stuff given to us for consumption by the Scribes and Pharisees who are doing the propaganda work of the place called Downing Street. The Motherland is the focus of the children of the Em pire these days, and will be every day whilst the wise men of the Do minions and Masterman Lloyd George are hob-nobbing and chop ping logic and mixing politics with Statcraft within sound of Big-Ben. So far the bulk of the information radioed to us lurches round Mr. Massey and Mr. Hughes, and ' one would imagine they are the positive and negative influences controlling the electrical currents of the Im perial Conference. Both, we are told, are acting together and if all goes well and the publicity agents are well primed:, we may expect to hear that Mr. Massey and Mr. Hughes have revised the British Constitution, and made some amend ments wh...
Forrest Memorial [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
F»rresl Memorial 'Quiz.': Can you or anyone tell me what happened to the proposed For rest Memorial? I believe some £500 was collected, and then the whole matter faded into thin air. Perhaps the time was inopportune, for it cam not be admitted that Western Aus tralia is really lacking in veneration for her greatest son. Seeing that the public are now in a more apr proachable humour, judging from the fact that nearly three times the aforesaid sum of £500 has been sub scribed for the Mclntosh Memorial. I hope that the trustees of the For rest Memorial Fund will take into^ consideration the advisability of* reviving the appeal.
Tribute or Insult? [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
TriUJiejrjisill ? The Hon. Neville Lytton, who controlled the press units attached to the British Army in the war, has published a book under the title of 'The Press and the General Staff.' 'A glance was sufficient to show their 'discipline with a difference, ' he writes, ' concerning Australian gunners. 'They were much dirtier and their hair was almost as long as the hair of Red Indians. They had loose, lithe bodies, and ex- . pressions of extreme cruelty, as seen in the faces of birds of prey. 'They never troubled to salute, and they called me 'mate.' Yet they seemed to be frightfully efficient, and never required orders. Everyone knew exactly what to do.' [Do you get that. Diggers? Just what you'd expect from an honour able 'gentleman' like the Hon. Neville Lytton. God help you if you had to depend on English gen tlemen of his sort, at, say, Poziere6. Yet you still believe what you read in the papers! — Ed.]
An "Aussle" Film Triumph The Sentimental Bloke in America [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
Al 'AlSSk' FHB Vhm s*ntim*n*ui Blok« in America The . cabled announcement that the important First National Exhi bitors' Organisations of America has secured 'thV-B. J. and Dah'Car roll picture, . 'The Sentimental Bloke.' for release throughout the theatres of their 'five thousand fran chise holders, will give fresh impetus to picture production in this cbun* try. . No doubt the Sentimental Bloke could have been disposed long ago to a lesser organisation, but the Carrolls preferred it to go for judgment before the keenest and most experienced picture exhibitors in the world. The decision of First National Inc. to place the Sen timental Bloke on their lists is a tribute to the directorship of Ray mond Longford, and a proof that there is a market abroad for Aus tralian productions. Local producers will gather fur ther encouragement fnvn the news that Snowy Baker's pictures, 'The Man From Kangaroo,' 'The Jac keroo,' and 'The Shadow of Light ning Ridge,' have found a market abroad, the ...

The experien ce and .achievements of Mr. Fox well fit him for the- production of serial pictures, and patrons can look for ward with assurance to the showing of something entirely novel in this line of film entertainment. The new serial is known. as 'Bride 13.' The story, written by. E. Lloyd Sheldon and adapted to the screen by Ed ward Sedgwopd, concerns itself with the depredations of a...
"Mac" of Universal CONVERSES WITH "THE MIRROR." [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
'M«' of universal CONVERSES WITH 'THE MIRROR.' Sheffield House is in Hay-street, and the Universal Film Exchange is in Sheffield House. My purpos? was to obtain an interview with Mr. McCrae, Universal's popular W.A. manager. That is the reason that I patiently seated myself upon the stooL which was thoughtfully placed just outside the Universal office. During the last few weeks, quite a host of people have been very curious to find out who this McCrae, is. Two very straightforward and sensible letters to the 'West' on the censorship of films being the cause. . At last, nry turn to step into the office came, and in I went. 'Hello, Mr. McCrea; busy?' 'I should say 1 am.' 'Then business is verv brisk?' 'Universally speaking it is brisk; brisker than it has ever been be fore.' 'How do you account for that*** 'Well, in the first place, we are receiving films mm our own sVj dies in America in far bigger par cels, thus we have plenty of filta to distribute. ?
