SPORTS GIRLS on the SCREEN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

SPORTS GIRLS on the SCREEN BABE DEDRICKSON, the wonder ath- lete of America, who has probably won more championships than any other girl in the world, was seen during the week, acting in a film at the St. James Theatre. We have already seen the two diving champions, Georgina Coleman and Mickie Riley on the screen, but we have yet to see Eleanor Holm or Helen Madison, but both are to appear shortly. Eleanor Holm beat Bonny Mealing in the backstroke championships at the Olympic Games. At the conclusion of that championship, she signed a seven years' contract with the Fox Films. WORLD RECORD-HOLDER MISS CLARE DENNIS, who under- went a painful operation to her feet during the week, is well on the way to recovery. It speaks volumes for Clare's fortitude that she was able to break the world's record at the Olympic Games last year. To ac- complish that effort with both her feet bandaged augurs well for her future when she has quite recovered from her operation.

PLAYING AREAS WANTED [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

PLAYING AREAS WANTED MORE playing grounds for the sports women of Sydney was the request made by the Parks and Playgrounds Movement and the New South Wales Women's Sports Council, to Mr. But- tenshaw, the Minister for Lands. It was suggested that areas of land at Randwick rifle range, North Sydney and Lidcombe might be made avail- able. Mr. Buttenshaw (who is himself a keen sport, who has often helped the tennis girls with some friendly advice) promised to inquire into the matter, as he recognised the good work being done by the sports girls. Lady Walder, Mrs. Halse Rogers, Miss Margaret Peden and Miss Wansey re- presented the Women's Amateur Sports Council.

SECRETARY ENGAGED MISS DORIS LEE, the well known   secretary of the New South Wales Women's Athletic Association, has an- nounced her engagement to Mr. Ed- ward Magee, also an official in the Randwick-Kensington Club. Miss Lee took an active part in athletics. She was the runner-up in the 100 and 220 yards State championships a few years back. She has been secretary of the associ- ation since women were officially recog- nised in 1928. Her fiance has also been connected with athletics since 1925.

SPORTING SHORTS A Nasty Injury [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

SPORTING SHORTS A Nasty Injury Nancy Devonshire, the baseball catcher for the Drummoyne Club, play- ing in the match against the Golden Eagles team at the Domain, received a nasty injury to her eye. It was caused by a ball which, coming straight from the club, caused the mask to break. Secretary is Versatile Miss Haywood, secretary of the Women's Basketball Association, and   State selector, is certainly versatile. On Saturday she plays hockey with her own team, then leaves for the Show Ground, where she watches the basketball players at work. Later she is to be found at the Cranbrook playing fields, playing hockey before the selectors. Miss Haywood has already represented the State at hockey, and it looks quite possible that she may do so again. New Clnb Formed A new club of women athletes has been formed in the Rydalmere district. During the week they affiliated with the N.S.W. Women's Athletic Association. There are already about 20 members, and Mrs. Pimm is the secr...

THIS PASTE TO CLEANSE AND POLISH THIS ANTISEPTIC TO KILL GERMS IT is true that Listerine Tooth Paste will cleanse your     teeth thoroughly and give them a marvellous brilliance and lustre. It is true also that it will remove germs from gum and tooth surfaces. But Science now says that such treatment is not sufficient to combat tooth decay properly. After such cleansing, the gums and teeth should be rinsed with Listerine (the safe antiseptic), because dental authorities have now found that the lactobacillus germ causes tooth decay. Listerine Antiseptic is fatal to this germ, as it is to all others. Then you know that you are killing the germs which cause tooth trouble and at the same time you are cleansing the mouth and rendering the breath sweet and agreeable. Made in Australia by the Lambert Pharmacal Company (Aust.) Ltd., Sydney LISTERINE TOOTH PASTE to cleanse and polish LISTERINE ANTISEPTIC to kill germs.

Tennis Records of World Champions [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

Tennis Records of World Champions Mrs. Helen Wills-Moody, a recent photograph of whom appears on Page 1, by defeating Miss Round in the finals of the women's singles championships at Wimbledon on Saturday, has equalled the achievement of the famous Suzanne Lenglen. BOTH have now won the Wimbledon singles championship six times. Mlle. Lenglen has also won the French women's singles championship an equal number of times. At Wimbledon, Mrs. Lambert Cham- bers holds the record, for she has won this event no fewer than seven times. In- cidentally, it might be mentioned that Mrs. Lamber Chambers is keenly inter- ested in hockey, having at one time played county hockey at Middlesex. As was anticipated, Miss Round, who is in splendid form at present, played very well against Mrs. Wills-Moody. It is the first time for many years that the holder of the championship dropped a set. It was considered that Miss Round's short drop shots would prove very disconcerting to the American player. If Mis...

NEWS of DORA OHLFSEN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

NEWS of DORA OHLFSEN Miss Dora Ohlfsen, the well-known Australian sculptor, is now in Rome. Miss Mary Jay, of Sydney, visited her recently, and sends some interesting news of Miss Ohlfsen's life and work there. 'THE holy seasons of Lent and Easter have passed, but artistic Rome is very much alive, for artists from afar are here and giving of their work. Aus- tralia does not seem so very far away, and is maintaining her reputation in this artistic centre. Dora Ohlfsen is one of the well-known artists here, and Australia has a right to be proud of her. She is well estab- lished in Rome, and appreciated. I often visit her studio, next door to the famous Beda College, in the Via S. Nicola da Tolentino. When I saw Dora first she was in a   happy frame of mind and feeling, serene and well content—a look as of something accomplished, something done, was in her beautiful dark eyes. I discovered that her last "child" had just been taken away from the studio—a life size portrait ...

Absent-minded Mr. Johnson [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

Absent-minded Mr. Johnson   By Joean Rendall Mr. Johnson was a very energetic person, but he was very absent-minded. His wife very rarely sent him on important errands, for no sooner had he reached the shopping centre than he had forgotten what he had to pur- chase. One Friday, Mr. Johnson had to take some fowls to the sale. He started his car, but before he had gone through the gate, his wife screamed out to him that he had for- gotten the fowls! Mr. Johnson proceeded very favorably at the commencement of his journey, but engine trouble forced him to stop his car, when he was merely a mile from his destination. After spending about half-an-hour with his car, he decided to hurry to the market. However, as he began to enter his car, he saw a number-plate lying on the roadside. "Ah!" Mr. Johnson thought to himself, "Someone has lost his number-plate so I had better take it to the police sta- PRIZE CARD to Terry Keating, 12 Cameron Street, Strathfield.   tion,...

SO THEY SAY! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

"WOMEN occupy on the whole rather inferior jobs, which they embellish with flowered voile and artificial silk stockings and a number of airs and graces, and they are apt to be a drain on a man's   cigarettes." —D. H. Lawrence. Prize of 10/ to Mrs. J. R. Crees, Yer- ongpilly, Brisbane, Queensland. NO WOMAN does her housework with real joy unless she is in love—and a woman may go on being quietly in love for 50 years almost without knowing it.— D.H. Lawrence.   THERE NEVER yet was a bill passed through Parliament that a woman's ad- vice was not asked for, and for which the need of a woman's influence was not felt —Adela Pankhurst.     VARIABILITY IS one of the virtues of a woman. If you have one good wife you are sure to have a apiritual harem. —G. K. Chesterton.

She's a Champion Herself [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

She's a Champion Herself Just how great a part in his final triumph Mrs. Crawford has played, or how far he would have gone without her wise counsel and practical assistance, is hard to say. She helped tremendous- ly. But she does not say much in her own praise. That "Jack knows I am always in the front row of the competitors' stand, fol- lowing every movement he makes" was her only allusion to the role she has played throughout. As Marjory Cox, prior to her mar- riage, Mrs. Crawford was one of our finest and most consistent women players. In 1925 she won the State singles championship, the women's doubles with Mrs. Utz, and the mixed doubles with Jim Willard. Her most recent victory was the Australian title in the mixed doubles event with her husband. This title they first won together in 1930, and are still undefeated. But the fact that, previously, with J. Willard, she won the DID you know that Mrs. Craw- ford, the brilliant "silent partner'" of Jack Crawford, is herself a champi...

HOT FOOT from the SALES With Spring in Mind [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 15 July 1933

With Spring in Mind WITH spring around the corner, woman's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of furbishing up the house with new curtains, loose covers, and what not. At Buckingham's Ltd., in Ox- ford Street, obeying this urge, I located a perfectly gorgeous assortment of cur- tain nets and other "furnishing" ma- terials. Those popular coarse-meshed fisher nets in natural color, and in 45 and 48 inch widths, are selling at con- cession prices of .2/6, 2/11, and 3/6 a yard. Several fancy patterns appear as well as the simpler mesh fashions. Fine Scottish curtain nets, in the new scalloped design, introducing a touch of color on string and mastic grounds, in 45in. widths, are reduced from 2/11 to 2/6 a yard. I found occasion to note that Osman sheets are reduced from 25/- to 17/11 a pair, and that house- hold linen generally offered tremendous savings.

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

THE MIRROR OF SYDNEY     SYDNEY has been thinking in terms of ice and snow this week, and, although such thoughts would freeze every- thing out of one's mind, they act as a stimulant to many who are able to command these things to serve their own enjoyment and delight. Everybody who can afford to has either gone or is planning a trip to Kosciusko. The exodus began last week. One notices the list includes many of the same names each year. Commander Gifford and his sister, Joan, together with their inseparable friend, Gretchen Borsdorff, Dr. and Mrs. Ashleigh Davy, Irene Anderson and Arnold Molden, from South Australia, will all be there, also Margaret Hagon and Mrs. Les Holden. * * * I SAW Marjorie Maclean, of "Manar," Potts Point, in town the other day, looking very fit. She had just returned from Dubbo, where she has been staying with Mrs. George Clark. Wedding bells will be ringing for Marjorie and "Togo" Middows early next year, I believe. Mrs. Esmond Fr...
