PERSONALITIES in GOLF Handicap Reductions [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
PERSONALITIES in GOLF Handicap Reductions MRS. CLEM WEIL, in winning the play-off for the T.B.S. and S. Cup, will represent Ryde in the final, at Concord. In annexing this honor, Mrs. Weil re- duced four strokes and last week again clipped a further six strokes off her han- dicap. MISS KERE STEWART, who has al- ready come down from 36 to 25 this season, now has a worthy rival in Mrs. Weil for the trophy presented at the close of the season to the player with the most reduced handicap. MISS JAMES, hon. associate secretary of 'The Lakes," signed the extra day score book in the par competition last week, and, in tieing for the trophy, with Miss Cowan, with 1 up, reduced her han- dicap by 1 stroke. PLAYING in a distance handicap at North Brighton, Miss E. Kelleher, win- ner of the Clarke Cup, reduced her handicap by four strokes, and is now on 31.

Bicycles for Slimming [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
Bicycles for Slimming Olympic representative Duncan Gray has received a letter from Mr. Leslie Pearce, who is now a director for Mack Sennett, in which he says: "There is a boom of cycling in Los Angeles since some of the most popular stars adopted it as a means of slimming. It is greater than the fever for 'Minnie' golf which swept the town some years ago." "IT is almost impossible," he continues, "to drive through the Golden Gate because of the numbers of bicycles. Twenty or thirty cycles for hire are parked at intervals along the side of the road." In Germany, too, bicycles for women are a popular means of transport and of diversion. Special thoroughfares have been built for bicycle traffic through the parks. Duncan Gray himself comments on women's lack of enthusiasm for this sport in Australia. He points out that one can travel further and receive just
PLAYING On An INCLINE Weekly Golf Hint [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
Weekly Golf Hint &nbsp; PLAYING On An INCLINE ! VERY often the position arises &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; when it is necessary to play a shot standing below the ball. &nbsp; In every instance the player is on &nbsp; an incline with the ball above &nbsp; &nbsp; her. It is well to remember that &nbsp; &nbsp; the stance should be an open &nbsp; &nbsp; one, more behind the ball than &nbsp; &nbsp; ordinarily. The grip should be &nbsp; &nbsp; considerably shortened, and the &nbsp; &nbsp; weight of the body well forward &nbsp; &nbsp; on the toes to maintain balance. &nbsp; &nbsp; As length is to be lost through a &nbsp; &nbsp; short swing owing to the shorter &nbsp; &nbsp; grip, it is essential to over-club. &nbsp; &nbsp; Always aim to be right of the &nbsp; &...
INTERSTATE HOCKEY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
INTERSTATE HOCKEY The women's hockey team that will leave shortly for Adelaide will have a number of players who will be playing interstate hockey for the first time, but thc experience of their captain, T. Wicks, and their vice-captain, E. McRae, will be a big factor towards the winning of these matches. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE three University representatives, Thompson, Humphries, and Dive, will represent New South Wales for the first time. This also applies to Living- stone, of New England, and Petersen, of Goulburn. Smith, the other country player, and Dive, have already repre- sented the State at cricket, Dive having played at Brisbane last year, and Smith at Melbourne the previous year. Cusack was a representative about two years ago. Holmes, of the Nereids team, who used to play in the University for- ward line, is another who will play for New South Wales for the first time. Hayward, Love, and Johnston were mem- bers of the team that played in Tas- mania last year....
INTER-VARSITY EVENTS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
INTER - VARSITY EVENTS Inter-Varsity Women's Hockey will be played in Brisbane next month. There will be representative teams from Ade- laide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane respectively, taking part. Last year, the Melbourne team car- ried the day, with Sydney second, and Adelaide third. This year, Sydney play- ers are optimistic about the possibility of turning the tables on their southern rivals. Three interstate players will be numbered among the Sydney team— MEMBERS of thc Fosters Hockey Team and Vigoro players of the Peek Frean Club. The teams are drawn from the Welfare Associations of the respective firms. Humphreys, Dive and Thompson. They will be playing in the Interstate matches in Adelaide, but, as the programme has been drawn up, they will be able to play in these events first, returning to Sydney two days before the University team is scheduled to leave for Brisbane. Inter-Varsity basket-ball will probably be played toward the end of August in Adelaide.

VICTORIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
VICTORIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS &nbsp; &nbsp; The Victorian Women's Ping Pong Championships have just concluded, Miss B. Emerson winning the singles championship. In partnership with Miss L. Smith, she also won the doubles. Twelve teams are already affiliated with the Victorian Women's Ping Pong Association, though so far an associa- tion of this kind has not been formed in Sydney. During the Ping Pong Championshins to be played at the Y.W.C.A. next month, it is probable that the matter will be brought forward, and arrangements for interstate visits from ping pong players discussed.
SHOULD PLAYERS BE GRADED? Opinions Vary [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
SHOULD PLAYERS BE GRADED &nbsp; Opinions Vary MISS JOAN HARTIGAN (right), Australian Singles Champion, and Miss Nell Hall (left), City of Sydney Singles Champion, whose views are quoted below C o n t r oversy has been rife in London of late in reference to the grading of women tennis &nbsp; players. It is, undoubtedly, the result of the omission of Miss Scriven from the "first ten," as nominated by the English selectors. MISS SCRIVEN struck a patch of poor form at Bournemouth prior to the cham- pionship events in Paris. This, in all probability, accounts for the fact that her name did not appear among the chosen ten. But this is a common occurrence in all branches of sport, and Miss Scriven herself was quite undaunted by it. Accordingly, she entered the French events as a private player, not as an English representative, and the present discussion arose. &nbsp; Miss Ryan gives her opinion to the effect that the grading of players is very often unfair. Further...
DEPUTATION to MINISTER [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
DEPUTATION to MINISTER To urge the necessity for pro- viding a dressing room for sports girls playing in the Domain, a deputation from the Parks and Playgrounds Movement and the N.S.W. Women's Amateur Sports Council waited on the Minister for Agriculture last week. &nbsp; MISS MARGARET PEDEN, secretary of the Women's Sports Council, pointed out just how vital this matter is considered from various angles. In the first place, she explained, dif- ferent associations are urging their members to desist from wearing their uniforms in the street. To do so ren- dered the girls conspicuous and is, there- fore, diametrically opposed to the ethics of amateur sportsmanship. Again it is definitely not hygienic for the girls to return home in the clothes in which they have been playing. Continuing in practical vein, Miss Peden said they had already inspected a stone building, situated behind the mint. The lower portion of this building would be quite satisfactory if the sum of £160 were ...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
For Children's Teeth Particularly This gentle, thrift dentifrice — swift, safe cleaning —a flavour children like Neglect of children's temporary teeth, orthodontists agree, may result in serious malformation of the later, permanent teeth forming beneath the gum surfaces. Beauty may be marred, health impaired. At the Age of Two Dental authorities therefore urge a systematic cleansing of baby teeth after the child has reached the age of two years. For this purpose they suggest a tooth paste free from harsh abrasives; safe and swift in action, and pleasant to taste. Protects Precious Enamel Listerine Tooth Paste contains amazing new cleansing and polishing agents. They are softer than enamel. Therefore, they cannot harm it. But they are harder than tartar. Con- sequently, they remove it. The teeth are left brilliant, clean, unmarred. We ask you to try Listerine Tooth Paste for a week. Disregard, if you will, the saving it affords, and judge by cleansing results alone. The Lambert Phama...
CRIPPLED CHILDREN HAVE SOFT SPOT IN WOMEN'S HEARTS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
CRIPPLED CHILDREN HAVE SOFT SPOT IN WOMEN'S HEARTS &nbsp; Hundreds of sad little &nbsp; folk are grateful for the &nbsp; &nbsp; help given to them &nbsp; through the kindly ef- &nbsp; forts of the women's auxiliaries working for the N.S.W. Society for Crippled Children. THE first auxiliary was started in Feb- ruary, 1931, on the North Shore Line, with twenty members. So great has been the growth of interest in the work that there are now twenty-one auxili- aries in the suburbs, with over 400 mem- bers, and another auxiliary will be formed at Bankstown next month. There is a Central Council, which comprises members nominated each year by the Board of Directors of the N.S.W. Society for Crippled Children, together with three delegates from each auxiliary. Mrs. Muscio is president of this council. The work of the auxiliaries is to assist the society to realise its objective of bringing surgical and curative treatment, education, and vocat...
Founder Who IS STILL PRESIDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
Founder Who Is STILL PRESIDENT THE work of the British and Foreign Bible Society is very well known, but the work of the Sydney Ladies' branch is not brought so prominently before the public. The Ladies' branch was founded 28 years ago by Miss A. M. L. Mayers, who has remained its active and cap- able president. The co-operation and value of wo- men in the work is, and has been, since its beginning, greatly valued and appreciated by the society. In the early days of New South Wales there was a wo- |MISS MAYERS |—Women's Weekly men's committee which visited the poor parts of the city, and endeavored to place Bibles in all the homes. This branch of the work was discontinued later, but right down the years women collectors in town and country have ren- &nbsp; dered staunch service in gathering in funds for prosecuting the world-wide work of the society. These women car- ried on their work in their own dis- tricts with no central organisation. Twenty-six years ago, however, it w...

PRESCRIBES DANCE MUSIC for a TIRED WORLD [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
&nbsp; &nbsp; The world's in the dumps. It wants to dance more and forget its troubles. So says Cec Morrison, foremost dance band exponent, who arrived back on the "Monterey" on Monday after a world tour to study the latest in dance music technique. As chief dispenser of music for the Australian Broadcasting Com- mission and for Farmer's, Cec Morrison's return will be warmly welcomed. In this exclusive interview with The Australian Women's Weekly he talks entertainingly about his impressions abroad. JAZZ is out—that is to say, in the meaning of the word as we know it. Jazz conveys to the average mind a medley of sound, undignified dancing based on the old negro movement. Dance music is, therefore, not jazz. It should express rhythm, harmony, and lilting theme. In the actual dancing itself there are no radical changes. Rhumbas still hold sway. Why, at the Kit Kat Club in London they have a special rhumba or- chestra in addition to the ordinary orchestra of 20 pieces. ...
SO THEY SAY! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
IT IS now a mere truism to remark that women are taking their place side by side with men. Rapidly they are becoming the "bosses" of the social sys- tem.—H. G. Wells. Prize of 10/- to Mrs. Trousdale, 183 Mitchell St., Stockton, N.S.W. ON LOOKING back, I think my mar- riage was the greatest move I ever made in my life.—Robert Louis Stevenson. IF SHE remains unmarried, the life of a normal woman, no matter how busy she be, has dark corners that few achievements can wholly fill.—Temple Thurston. THERE'S NOTHING in this talk that two can live cheaper than one. A good wife doubles a man's expenses and doubles his happiness, and that's a pretty good investment if a fellow's got the money to invest.—From "Letters of a Self-Made Merchant to His Son."
Let's Talk Of INTERESTING PEOPLE... [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933
Let's Talk Of &nbsp; INTERESTING PEOPLE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MISS BEATRICE MOORE MISS BEATRICE MOORE, a senior student at Wesley College, who is a tall, attractive brunette, says that her &nbsp; "perfect man" must be tall, curly- headed, and good looking. Among other things, Miss Moore says that he should not drink too much, just a little drop now and again. Her "perfect man," she later explains, must be a good lover, but not too sentimental. Lastly, but not least, he must have a fair bit of money." We hope Miss Moore finds her "perfect man," but should this man exist, he must surely be greatly in demand. MISS CARLOTTA DOYLE -Dayne. THERE is one club at least in Syd- ney where neither position nor money will make you eligible for mem- bership, and that is the Women's Pioneer Society. To the descendants of the early Australian settlers only will the doors be opened. Miss Carlotta Doyle, who founded the club in 1929, and who still holds office o...
