GOOD HANDS for "RESCUE" BIDS CONTRACT BRIDGE NO. 6 [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

CONTRACT BRIDGE NO. 6 GOOD HANDS for "RESCUE" BIDS By FRANK CAYLEY It is necessary for every bridge player to distinguish between raises and take- out bids. You may have a sound raise for an original suit call despite the fact that your hand is devoid of honor |For all general strength, but such |purposes we are a hand will not |safe in saying contain a sound |that to change take-out. |your partner's bid from a suit to "no trumps" or to any new suit or to go from "no trumps" into a suit you require slightly more than one honor trick. Do not get panic-stricken and make a "rescue" call on frightful cards. If your hand is hopeless say "no bid" and leave your partner to struggle with a low contract instead of encouraging him to undertake a higher one. Bidding is a constructive business, so don't call without justification. An immediate raise is usually prefer- able to a take-out, particularly when you are in a position to support partner's major suit call. In responding to an original c...

HAREM STORY ENTHRALLS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

HAREM STORY ENTHRALLS Romance lives on every page   of Eleanor Mercein's book, "Ara- besque." The stories, six of   them, are as enthralling as any   fairy story of old. We are taken   into Morocco—and then east-   ward towards the Mediterranean. IN its pages we meet fascinating Arabs as different from each other as are the localities in which they are found. American women looking for romance and one at least who found her life's happiness in the harem. Of this one, Rose Farquhar, we read a lot—a beautiful Chicago girl who re- mained true to her Moslem lover for 15 years—and who pinned on her riding habit each day the single rose that every morning arrived as a token of his love. When she was at liberty to marry him she did so, and started in the harem a   school for wives and welfare activities, such as free dispensaries for the sick. Here is a description of a bridal cos- tume :— "It was a brocade of pa...

Book Censorship Protests Justified From Our Canberra Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

Book Censorship Protests Justified From Our Canberra Correspondent   There is every justification for the complaint against the exclusion of women from membership of the Com- monwealth Book Censorship Committee, for there will bc many subjects on which the feminine angle will be essential be- fore a just decision can be made. THE official censors are men of wide knowledge and learning, but these qualifications do not justify the com- plete rejection of women's claims for ap- pointment. While it is admitted that Sir Robert Garran, Professor Haydon, and Dr. Allen have every qualification for judg- ing the literary standard of a book, it cannot be conceded that they can pro- ceed without the advice of women, es- pecially when doubtful subjects are of particular concern to younger readers. It has been pointed out that the three NURSE: "Why did you name your boy Clarence Algernon James?" PROUD FATHER: "Well, I want him to be a prize-fighter, and a boy with a name like that g...

LIFE—A BUSINESS It is a paradox, perhaps, that, while Home Life is a refuge from busi- ness, it is itself a business. Money enters so largely into everything that it must be planned for in every phase of life. It is in business that money is earned, in the Home, chiefly, that it is spent, and there is no sound reason why the spending should not be regarded as being just as important as earning. In fact, it is far more important, for earning is difficult, and must employ wisdom, forethought, and energy, while spending is easy, so easy that there is temptation to spend unwisely. Every Home, then, is a business, and needs an economic system, of which the Savings Bank Pass Book can be the valuable basis.

Connie's Letter [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

Connie's Letter MY Dear Pals, Evidently you prefer the crossword   puzzles to the picture puzzles, as in my mail last week more than 90 per cent of pals said they like the crosswords better. The prize letter for this week is written by Joan Ryan (13), 7 Busby Street, Waverley, for which she receives a prize of 2/6. Joan tells me in her letter all thc places she went to during the Xmas holidays. The first two weeks were spent visiting the Zoo, Clifton Gardens, and going to a few picture shows. The remaining weeks were spent at a delightful, rambling, old country house on the side of a hill, far away from the noise and bustle of the city. Joan, in speaking of the country folk, says: "The people in the country are astir early in thc morning, and some- times before the first sunbeam laid a pale gold finger on my window-sill I could hear Aunt Nora moving about in the kitchen." Joan was very much impressed by the beautiful mornings and sunsets. Well, good-bye. pals, until nex...

THE CHANGED DUCKLING [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

THE CHANGED DUCKLING "What is the matter now?" cried Mrs. Duck, in a flutter with fright. "I don't think I ever heard such a terrible noise before." "It's me. Mother, it's me." panted Duckling Dick, strutting into the midst of his family more proudly than a peacock. "Would you believe it, I have swum right across the pond in the corner of the farmyard with- out any help from anyone!" "Well," said Mother, "that is nothing to boast of, Dick. Many other little ducks do that." But proud D i c k thought otherwise, and he spent the whole of that sunny day strutting round the farmyard telling   the pigs, the turkeys, the pigeons, and the fowls the story of his wonderlnl feat. At last, he became aware that he was being fol- lowed wherever he went by a young cock- erel. The cockerel PRIZE CARD to Beryl Mortimer (15), Tama- rama Street, Bondi. stepped very high, and looked very proud, with his red comb wagging about.
