Morality Frock Clears Ground by Seven and a Half Inches. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 2 July 1921
Morality Frock — o — Clears Ground by Seven and a Half Inches. Challenged by a mass of indig nant women to produce 'the kind of frock you think we ought to wear,' clergymen of 15 denomina tions met at Philadelphia at a dressmaking congress and thrashed the question out from the neck but ton to hem edge. Their joint deli berations have produced what they are pleased to term the morality frock, and, considering all things, the result is not as awful as it might have been. There must have been some very human creatures among the 1-5- judges, as .the 'Morality'— which for trade purposes has been registered as 'The International' — shows an open neck, not overgener Could You Improve «ju it? ous as to display, but measuring a good three inches from 'the* neck dimple across.' Bared arms have been accepted also, but a special provision preclu ded* the exposure of two other dim ples, the elbows having to be safely and firmly covered.

Irish Women Outraged [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 2 July 1921
Irish Women Outraged &nbsp; We take the following from "Comments of the Week" in the New Witness for the 29th: "Some weeks ago I referred o the question of outrages by these kind of police (Black and Tans) on Irish women, and said that proofs would in due time be available. Two, affidavits by Irish women are now available, the originals of which are in safe keep- ing. They give full names and ad- dresses, which I suppress. One case occurred in Cork in the early morning hours of February 8. On that date in Cork a married woman with four children was forced by a 'policeman' into an unoccupied room and raped, despite her resist- tance and though she was near her confinement, while another 'police man' stood guard at the door. The case was reported later in the day to the sergeant at the local bar- racks, where the second man was actually identified ; the woman and her husband were advised by the sergeant to 'have little to say about it.' The second case occurred on Christmas ni...
"Phil" Matson [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 2 July 1921
Phil Matson (Photo by Layfatte). Champion Footballer and a State Selector. For many years past there has been no more outstanding figure in the football world than 'Phil' Matson. He has been a member of every Carnival Team that has left the West, and has always been regarded as a star play er. The champions ot the East found something worthy of their best en deavours, when our champion was pitted against them. The critics of the East were most appreciative when referring to his play. They could hardly be anything else, for in what-- ever company he was playing Phil Matson had few superiors. Where did he play in the field? Everywhere. There is hardly a position that he has not occupied. In the very early days of his career he was a follower. That was in the days that he was connect ed with West Perth. The Westerners were not over-impressed with his play, and unwillingly let an embryo champion slip through then- fingers. We have seen him as pivot man for his side, defeating the best i...

Gardening CLIMBERS FOR A SUNLESS WALL. The term climbing plant is used by ue loosely to cover groups With all Irinds or Habits of supporting themsel- ' ves.

The weav ers push their shoots among the bran ches or other plants before developing Uie leaves and lateral shoots, by wfucb they hang on. The climbliur roses be long to tbis class. There are also ate tenriril bearers, like the sweet peas and the grape -vine, while the clematis clings by twisting Us lear stalks around supports.

CROSSING THE BAR-MAN. A True Fairy Tale. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 9 July 1921
CROSSING THE BAB-MAN. A True Fairy Tale. (By Mat O'Gun.) Once upon a time there was a vacancy in the diplomatic service, and a certain Congressman recom mended for the ofnee one of his con stituents, who for manv years had been a bar-tender. A 'certain poli tical celebrity approached the con gressman that same evening, and, in undertones, informed him that it had bean quietly whispered in pri-. rate circles that his candidate never had been anything but a bar-tender, and consequently his candidacy was out of all reason. 'That,' re plied the congressman, 'is exactly why I am touting for him, for he has been tried right out, and I claim that no enp but a diplomat of the first water can be a dinkum bar tender. Jus't think it over!

Belmont [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 9 July 1921
Behnpt (By 'Solon.') To-morrow (Sunday) is the day, See the great football match, at Hardy Park, Red Castle v. Kala munda. . The Castle boys have been training religiously all the week, and Don is confident of victory. 'Tog' has been kicking goals from 75 yards out, and on an angle. Brenns high markers are dazzlers, and when he springs for them the boys ask him not to stay, in- the air too long:. Jimmy Hall has been running well with the ball, and he will have to back pedal before the Kai. boys will stop him. Jimmy Pratley, as centre man, will cause the W.A.F.L. selection committee much sorrow, because he will not be available for the carnival -matches. If he had been he most likely would have been chosen before Truscott or Thomas. All the others are doing famously with the exception of Don Castello Curtis, who has lightened eff a bit. But a few days 'let up' will bring about the required change. We hear Bob Hall (Goliath) will skip per on Sunday. It will be a great game. . It is al...

Bcllcvuc to Bayswatcr (By 'Box On.') Oh, those spirit rafflers at Bellevue! Two more bottles of whisky came to light last week Where is it all coming from? And produced by some of the never-work variety. On Friday, the 1st inst., at the Trades Hall, Midland Junction, a fight took place between Elmick . and Haines. It lasted four rounds, in which Eimick was declare* the winner. They both fought for the sum of 2©/- and also' the right to walk out with a certain young lady, and strange to say while the fight was on their girl was off to the pic tures with another boy. . A Week ago last Friday night, Two Midland mugs put up a fight; One of them made a poor old job. He lost his girl and the twenty bob. To the prize ring he should never take, But a splendid runner he would make: Elmick was Dempsey that was clear, White Haines was froggie Carpentier. If Chris. Wiltshire wishes to keep himself out of the pound he should take 'The Mirror's' advice, and join Duthie's silver tail bowling club ...

Hands off the Movies SOME FACTS THAT TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 9 July 1921
Harts of I me Movks SOME FACTS THAT TALK. 'Allan'! — I wonder how many oj us stop to ponder when we think o^ the 'movies' as an Australian enter prise? Not many of us. I doubt if any of our Federal politicians, ever spare the time to ponder oyer such a trifle. They seem to have adopted a motto of 'kill the movies,' and well they are living up to this text. A few days ago, the Federal House decided that 'movie-dom' could easily find sufficient money to pay for Billie Hughes' 'strictly busi ness' jaunt to the 'Old Dart,' and perhaps the films could even foot the tremendous bill that the Cocka too Commission had run up; a few other accounts could even be passed on to the movies. So up went the Film Duty from lid. to 3d. per foot. Now, the average length of an . ordinary film feature runs to about 4,500 feet, and either two, three, or four copies of each production are sent out here. Thut it. will be seen that the amount that is involved is terrific. The Federal Government come in for a...
