Lady Kitty Says— [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
Lady Kitty Says— Apart from the financial help the Loan Exhibition of Antiques will give to the Kuitpo Colony, a splen- did movement which instils in out- of-work men the great uplift of hope and the preservation of their self-respect, it is doing fascinating work in bringing the people of today into personal touch with the charm of things of the past. Never in their most shrewd and cal- culating study of results did the com- mittee of the Antique Exhibition, fore- &nbsp; see the astounding result of their efforts. All day and every day the place is thronged and, like the exhibits, which have reposed in their various homes, seen only by the circle of people who revolve round the family therein, the majority of people are not those usually in the public eye. Like the people of old English university towns they have been brought out of their seclusion only at the call of the artistic and the desire to feast eyes and in- tellect on something worth while. The Social Side.—Everyb...

EVERYONE WORKS IN RUSSIA "Conditions Amount Almost To Slavery" Fremantle, September 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
EVERYONE WORKS IN RUSSIA "Conditions Amount Almost To Slavery" Fremantle, September 30. Conflicting reports of conditions in Russia have been published recently throughout Australia, but observations made by Mr. W. L. Sherwin, of Sydney, left no doubts in his mind of the exist- ence of industrial conditions amounting almost to slavery. Mr Sherwin, who is attached to the Campsie branch of Australian Gas- light Company of Sydney, spent several months in Europe, and he reached Fre- mantle on the Largs Bay from London. He will travel by train to the eastern States. "Eveiyone is working in Russia," Mr. Sherwin said, "and the conditions are appalling. You can see workers from 10 years to 70 years of age applying themselves to all manner of occupa- tions in factories, public and private buildings and churches. Intense organi- sation enables the Soviet authorities to use enfeebled old men in the less arduous occupations, such as filling peas or lollies into standard utensils, for export. I ...
Princess Margaret's Cake [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
Princess Margaret's Cake When Lady Strathmore's children, especially the Duchess of York and Mr. David Bowes-Lyon, were at the nursery and schoolroom ages, it was a family custom to have a huge angel cake for tea on birthdays. The Duchess and her brother were so fond of them that, after they were grown up, an angel cake was still considered the greatest of teatime treats. The Duchess used
A MAID IN MAYFAIR Gossip From London Town From Our Special Woman Correspondent August 27, 1931. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
A MAID IN MAYFAIR Gossip From London Town From Our Special Woman Correspondent August 27, 1931. The season on the Cote Basque had not been good this year until the Prince of Wales arrived at Matignon. Immediately he was settled in the lovely old chateau where he is the guest of Lord Ednam, the Duke of. Sutherland's brother-in-law, people seemed to float in from all direc- tions, Spaniards and Americans, as well as British visitors, going on from Deauville and the fashionable Riviera resorts. Now at both Biarritz and St. Jean-de-Luz things are very gay and smart. Biarritz is within a short motor drive of Matignon, and the big hotels and restaurants, the last word in luxury, have brought entertaining to such a fine art that it is expected the Prince will visit some of them to see the caba- ret shows, as well as to dance. Matig- non itself, though, is so lovely that the Prince may well prefer to spend the days there. The chateau is most picturesque, of 17th century style, and surrounde...
FLANNEL COSTUMES Solve Problem of Summer Dancing By "IN STEP" [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
FLANNEL COSTUMES Solve Problem of Summer Dancing By "IN STEP" The recent warm weather is bringing to mind the fact that winter is at last nearing its end, and with it comes the end of the dancing season. But should end with the coming of sum- mer? Admittedly, dancing in ordinary evening wear is unpleasant on a sum- mer night, but flannel dances are be- coming yearly more numerous and popular, and remove nearly all hot weather disabilities. Gone are the days when dancing was hard work and men brought along spare collars to replace the ones which collapsed as limp rags under the strain of two or three of the strenuous feats of endurance which was dancing in our fathers' young days. Nevertheless, even the comparative simplicity and quiet of modern dances is often energetic enough to make one uncomfortably warm in evening dress if the night is at all summery. In Australia at any rate, summer dancing in evening dress can never be- come universally popular. On the other hand, there is no ...

BURNSIDE COUNCIL Overdraft Increases From £3,798 to £6,428 [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
BURNSIDE COUNCIL Overdraft Increases From £3,798 to £6,428 The overdraft of the Burnside District Council had increased from £3,798 15/6 on July 1, 1930, to £6,428 10/7 on July 1, 1931, said the district clerk (Mr. R. H. Steele) in his annual report. The council had limited expenditure to an average of £2,500 a month, and if this were main- tained, a sufficient amount should be in hand at the end of June, 1932, to allow the council to carry on without an over- draft. At the beginning of the year £1,177 9/3 was brought forward as arrears; the rates to be collected amounted to £32,763 12/8, and £516 7/11 had been imposed as fines, making a total of £34.457 7/10, of which £3,605 8/3 was in arrears. Sister Collison, in charge of the Mothers' Institute and Baby Health Centre, had weighed 1,182 babies during the year. The large attendance of mothers every week was proof of the excellent work done by the centre. Tbe local unemployment relief commit- tee had continued to do good work. The c...

Win And Place Tote Front One Pool NOW IT IS WORKED Paying Four Dividends By "GAMBIER" [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
Win And Place Tote From One Pool HOW IT IS WORKED Paying Four Dividends By "GAMBIER" The announcement in "The Advertiser" on Wednesday that a satisfactory system had been evolved for the payment by the totalisator of four divi- dends—a win and a place on the winner, and a place for the second and third, when &nbsp; there are 10 or more starters — created widespread interest. &nbsp; Mr. S. J. Pullman, secretary of the Port Adelaide Club, who initiated this novel system, which should give gene- ral satisfaction to backers, explained yesterday the method of working which has been adopted by the Port Adelaide Club, and will be tried at its next meeting on November 14. At Randwick and in Melbourne separate win and place totalisators are conducted, but the Pullman sys- tem embraces the two in one, and consequently makes for more econo- &nbsp; &nbsp; mical handling of the investments. The elementary principle is that when there are 10 or more starters the fo...

BOWLS [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 1 October 1931
BOWLS GLADSTONE.— A meeting of the Bowl- ing Club was held at the institute. The president (Mr. C. Budge) was in the Chair. The results of the analysts of the bore water were read, and showed that the supply was not suitable for irrigation pur- poses. It was decided to secure samples from Caltowle and Laura Club's bores, and to compare the analysis with the Glad- stone Club's bore water. Owing to the excellent winter rains, some bowling enthusiasts suggest having the lawns planted with the hope of summer rains, the bore water giving the lawn a start. The bore has been put down to a depth of 86 feet.
