A GAMBLE with a CHILD'S LIFE What Would YOU Do? THIS WEEK'S £10 QUANDARY &nbsp; WOULD you risk a child's life to prevent it grow- ing up disfigured? Here is another quandary, a problem of real life which anyone might easily be called upon to decide to-morrow or even to-day. In organising this interesting "What Would You Do?" com- petition, with its weekly prise of £10 for the best entry, and five consolation prises of 10/-, The Australian Women's Weekly is help- ing thousands of readers to become decisive and to know their own minds. ONE of the fascinating things about life is that you never know exactly what is going to happen next. There are some people who, by knowing very clearly what they want, and by adopting a right mental atti- tude towards life, can, to a certain ex- tent, order things the way they want; but even they come up against fate from time to time. All kinds of problems crop up unex- pectedly, and some of them, if not faced resolutely and tackled promptly, ...

PLACE of HAPPY MEETINGS "Kooroora" meaning "Place of Happy Meetings" was a de- lightful choice of name on the part of a number of girls em- ployed in commercial and busi- ness houses in Sydney, when they banded themselves together in happy fellowship and took for their motto," We Live to Serve."

Members meet at a weekly luncheon so that ac- quaintance may be developed into friendship; for the exchange of ideas; the promotion of sound views on busi- ness, conduct, citizenship, and ethics. The club aims at establishing a high standard of citizenship and developing a sense of responsibility in regard to the further progress and development of the Commonwealth. The foremost aim and object of the club is service. Besides assisting St. Luke's Hospital, for which the MISS NELL HARVEY, president of the Kooroora Club. . -Rene Pardon. club is pledged to hold one special effort yearly, many other...

The winners of the first series of splendid cash prizes (for the first quandary) are to be announced next week.

THEY were asked:- &nbsp; Which Husband Would You Choose? 1. Kind, affectionate, and gener- ous, although unfaithful. 2. Faithful, but given to nagging. 3. Lovable, and famous in the eyes of the world, faithful, but moody and quick-tempered. Two Sydney women, asked their choice, had to call in outside aid! Mrs. A. T.

HE is ONLY a MAN! From Our London Office [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
HE IS ONLY a MAN! From Our London Office ONE thing a wife must always remem- &nbsp; ber, according to the Rev. T. H. Curtis, vicar of St. Paul's Church, West- cliff, is that a husband, after all, is only a man. "Do not expect too much of him," says the vicar. In an article in his church magazine, giving advice to wives on how to treat their husbands, the Rev. Curtis says: "If your husband is quiet, don't imagine he is sulky. He may be trying to think of a suitable present for you. "Never buy him cigars. The shops, in England, keep special brands to sell to women for that purpose. They are sure death to green fly. "At the end of a tiring day don't ask him, 'What shall we have for dinner to- morrow?' That is your job. "If he goes out for a walk in the &nbsp; country, it may be that he likes quiet." The vicar gives no advice on Friday night pay envelope technique.

There is another reason why the note was changed. Compare the wording on the old and new with re- gard to the promise to pay in gold. But what a happy thought it was to put the Prince of Wales in a sort of peep show. Hold the note up to the light, and there he is. Put it down, and, "Hey, Presto," he's gone. Children will have endless fun with the new note—if they ever lay hands on one. Whether the Prince will like it or not is another matter. Nobody, however, can do anything but praise the sentiment behind this brighter note.
