HOUSEWIVES Protest against BUTTER PRICES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
HOUSEWIVES Protest against BUTTER PRICES THERE'LL be no fixation of price, as far as butter is concerned if the Housewives' Progressive Association has its say, and, as there are 12,000 mem- bers, their voice or voices should be loud enough to be heard. The meeting or protest called by the Association on Friday in its rooms at 267 George Street was crowded, and the &nbsp; members listened with close attention to Mr. J. R. Lee, M.L.A, and agreed en- thusiastically with what he said with re- gard to any industry that immediately income didn't meet expenditure, wanted legislation to raise prices or lower wages, instead of seeing to the bettering of its produce. Indeed, it was the poor quality of Strawberry and Daisy owned by 80 per cent of them, he declared, that was the cause of the dairy farmers' dilemma. When Mr. C. L. de Boos (of Milk Pro- ducts Industry) pointed out that an in- crease in butter prices would mean an increase in the price of milk and its pro- ducts, and thes...

Rich- ard Mathers, Rector of Rylstone, assist- ed by the Rev. P. G. Standen. The bride, who was given away by her uncle, Dr. K. D. McDonald, wore a delightful gown of white flat crepe, made with a yoke effect and inlet lace. A tight corsage finished with buttons at the back, and long tight sleeves, added a delightful Old World effect. A coronet of orange blossoms held the veil of cut tulle, which enveloped the gown in grace- ful folds, and fell to form a train. Her bridal sheaf was of pink carnations and white roses. Miss Nell Moore, sister of the bride, and Miss Ruth Lambert, sister of the ...
Catchpole—Hicks [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Catchpole—Hicks BILLOWY folds of tulle, arranged cap fashion on the head with orange blossoms, fell to form a long train over the beautiful gown of white satin which was worn by Miss Bessie May Hicks for her wedding on Saturday evening, at St. Philip's Church, Church Hill. Modelled en train in silhouette style, the gown featured a lattice-work design on the corsage, and was finished with a puffed effect on the long sleeves. Trails of blossom pink carnations in the bridal sheaf of white hyacinths and stock, added a delicate touch of color to the bridal ensemble. The bride is the daughter of the late Mr. Wm. Hicks, and Mrs. F. Collins, of Randwick, and the bridegroom. Mr. Walter Catchpole, is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Catchpole, formerly of Melbourne. A delightful color contrast was secured in the frocking of the bridesmaids, Miss Mavis Collins and Miss Leila Tierney. The former chose as her color sea green chantilly lace, worn ankle length, and showing frills on the tight cors...
BRAINWAVES! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
—By L. W. Lower REMEMBER, girls! It may be hard to live within your income, but it's a dashed sight harder to live without your income. * * * A COMPLETE medicine cabinet should be in every home. And another thing — always keep a bed in the house, in case of illness. * * * "BROKEN finger-nails are hideous!" &nbsp; But not so hideous as the face of the man you broke 'em on. * * * WALKING about with a book on the head will develop a graceful car- riage and poise. That's what we've always thought, but walking about with a cheque book in your handbag will give greater poise and much more high-powered car- riages. * * * "IS she well educated" asked the &nbsp; anxious father. "Well" said the son, "she noes a lot." A-BRIDGED LOVE STORY &nbsp; "My Queen!" he said, passionately. "My King!" she answered, softly. He reached across the table and grabbed her by the throat. "Damn you!" he screamed. "Why do you always trump my tricks!" * * * "SOME coarse skins seem simply ...
Sweet Lavender SACHET [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Sweet Lavender &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SACHET Here's a very dainty way of using your fragrant lavender spikes in a com- bined lavender and hanky sachet. It's made from two pale mauve lace-edged hankies. Place the two handkerchiefs to- gether, so that they overlap about 5½ &nbsp; inches in the centre, leaving a single thickness at each end, also roughly 5 inches in depth. The upper single thick- ness folds down over the doubled part to form the embroidered flap, while the lower single part doubles up to make the long, thin lavender sachet. The middle section will hold your hankies. Backstitch the thicknesses of the two sachets together in deep mauve peri- lusta cotton, working just inside the lace edge. Carry the backstitching also round the flap. Leave one short edge of the lavender sachet open fill it "flatly" with lavender, then close the opening with backstitch. Work on to the flap a row of three large flowers, with a small flower at each end. Buttonh...
Our Paris Fashion Letter Paris. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Our Paris Fashion Letter Paris. Dear Mr. Editor,— ACCORDING to last-minute informa- &nbsp; tion, fashion plays fast and loose &nbsp; with the waist-line. There are certainly signs of its abandoning the top region and favoring the normal, and in some cases even the slightly low level. Some daytime frocks with natural waist-line belts are panelled in such a way that the skirt indicates a second waist-line. Sports frocks favor straight lines in this respect, and sometimes accommo- date pockets, a new note, for these out- door garments are partly backless, fol- lowing the lines of the early backless evening gowns. * * * THE new coats for sports and travel- ling are very loose-fitting, and the styles do not exceed three-quarter length. They are fashioned from ma- trials of a tweed texture, and hang from a straight yoke at the back. Cubist designs and tartan foulards are quite in vogue, which should also match the hat, flowers, gloves, and other details of the costume. R. ...

SPORTS JOTTINGS &nbsp; &nbsp; A woman cricketer to gain distinction is Miss Thurles Thomas, who was admit- ted as a solicitor to the Supreme Court last week. Miss Thomas played cricket with the University and Kuring-gai teams, and was at one time treasurer to the N.S.W. Women's Cricket Asso- ciation.

Vigoro Teams on PARADE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Vigoro Teams on PARADE OVER 1000 spectators were at the St. George Sports Ground, Kogarah, on the King's Birthday, when the local Vigoro Association held their Sports Day. Officials and members from the Sydenham to Bankstown and Cumber- land Associations were present. A march past, in which seventeen teams took part, resulted in a win for Arncliffe, with Scarborough second, in the St. George division. The Sydenham to Bankstown division was won by "Red Rose," with "Iona" in second place. The Cumberland A. Team won their division. In the sports the well-known Olympic athlete, E. Robinson, was well to the fore, winning both the 75 yards and the 100 yards championships. A novel tug-o'-war took place between eight members of the Hurstville Police Force and thirty vigoro girls, resulting in a definite inferiority complex for the local constabulary. The girls had a dashing win. RECORD VIGORO THROW The relay race was won by the Mag- pies team, and M. Fox, a B. Grade player, created a record...

Personalities In GOLF [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Personalities &nbsp; &nbsp; In GOLF &nbsp; NEWS CAME to hand last week that Mrs. J. Holt, captain and handicapper of Narooma Golf Club, had won the championship of the Far South Coast and Southern Tablelands. Sydneysiders will remember her better as Miss Audrey Benson, who, prior to her marriage a few months back, was club champion, captain and associate secretary of Ryde Club. * * * ASSOCIATE captain of Pymble, Mrs. O. J. C. Moore is playing good golf at present; her L.G.U. handicap is 19, but she plays off two less at her club. One of the most promising young asso- ciates, Miss McLeod, playing with asso- ciate secretary, Mrs Mathieson, last week reduced her handicap by five strokes, quite a big slice in one round, denoting a vast improvement. Miss McLeod will now play off twenty. CONGRATULATIONS are being re- ceived by Mrs. Harry Samuels on the birth of a son last week. Mrs. Samuels is a prominent associate of Dee Why club, and prior to that, at the seaside...
Suva Hockey Players Are Full of Pep [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Suva Hockey Players Are Full of Pep GREAT interest is centred on the N.S.W. hockey team, which will leave for Suva at the end of this month. International players Tory Wicks and McRae coached the team last Sat- urday, and again on Tuesday. They are working up an excellent combination. Nancy Wicks, whose name is a by- word with hockey players, and who, with her sister, Tory, is the centre of activities in the Gumnut Club, will be captain of the team. She has repre- sented New South Wales in every State except Queensland, and was a member of the State team that played England. With all this experience she will prove a most capable and popular captain. To help her she has Johnson as vice- captain. Johnson has also played in numerous Interstate games. She has been secretary of the Kookaburra Club for nine years, and this season is their cap- tain. Crowley, one of the full-backs, was the originator of the &nbsp; Commonwealth Bank Club. O'Brien and Bur- rell both played at Woodcou...
She Plays Like a COMING Champion! 17-year-old Girl's Big Chance [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
She Plays Like a COMING Champion! 17-year-old Girl 's Big Chance By DOROTHY KEARNEY THE junior and schoolgirls' champion- &nbsp; ship of N.S.W., played at Kensing- ton last week, over 36 holes stroke, re- &nbsp; sulted in a meritorious win for 17-year- &nbsp; old Miss Barbara Donkin, of Moss Vale. &nbsp; The weather conditions were boister- &nbsp; ous, and it speaks volumes for this &nbsp; youngster's play that she had a clear &nbsp; lead of five strokes from the rest of &nbsp; the field, which included Sydney's two leading juniors, Miss Irene Morgan, of &nbsp; Pennant Hills, and Miss Florrie Keane, &nbsp; of Roseville. It is a big step from the obscurity of &nbsp; a small country golf club to the lime- light of a State champion, who bids fair to perhaps becoming a national champion. Barbara is still a pupil at Koyong school, and has only been play- ing two years. Her early tuition was received f...

Glamour The Gate of Freedom was open to Valerie, and it was her husband who held it open! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Glamour The Gate of Freedom was open to Valerie, and it was her husband who held it open ! By Ethel Mannin WHAT did it feel like to be young.

Shoulder Fashion Flatters the HIPLINE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Shoulder Fashion Flatters the HIPLINE From NELL MURRAY, Special Repre- sentative in Europe for The Australian Women's Weekly LONDON. THAT "BROAD-SHOULDERED" look, which women find so flattering to the hipline, is likely to persist through- out the fashion cycle of 1933, according to news just received of the mid-season collections now showing in Paris. In February, only two houses—Schiaparelli and Lanvin—featured the accentuated shoulder line. Now, however, similar models have been added to nearly all the collections of the great houses, and Schiaparelli's "shelf" and "fin" shoulder treatments are famous in Paris, London, and New York. Capes and capelet sleeves are con- tinuing in favor, and many more black and white ensembles are to be seen than earlier in the year. The views of Jean Charles Worth on this subject are of interest. "Color came to Parisiennes for town wear from abroad," he told fashion journals a few days ago. "Every so often it is the chic thing to do in Paris to acc...
AN ADMIRABLE CRICHTON OF THE AIR [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
AN ADMIRABLE CRICHTON OF THE Air Among many radio voices encountered when fishing in the ether for a pro- gramme, there is one that commands instant attention, as much by its smoothly soft and sympathetic quality as by the clarity and culture of its dic- tion. It is a voice unmistakably English in intonation, and yet the English spoken is without any definite accent. It is cosmopolitan; for that voice often slips into perfect colloquial French, German, or Italian. When "story-tell- ing" every conceivable kind of char- acter literally emerges from the loud- speaker—each a clear-cut cameo. The owner of this "voice" is Captain A. C. C. Stevens, a much-travelled Eng- lishman, who for many years past has made his home in Australia. He absolutely refuses to be inter- viewed. Quite nice about it, you know— but the oyster can give him no points! However, one gathers that Captain Stevens has led a most chequered career.
