LUXURIOUS COLLEGE GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 6 June 1914

LUXURIOUS COLLEGE GIHLS. When an American girl goes to col lege certain necessaries are specified for her daily use. Her unofficial out fit is much more instructive than the regulation articles used by every in dividual. If she has a mind for lux ury she will buy the appointments of her room with lavish outlay. Books and pictures are certain to figure largely; cushions, each decorated with her college crest, will be abun= dant. . Hospitality is one of the graces in America. A woman who did not know how to dispense it would-fall far short of the national ideal. Cook-. ing is regarded as a fine art, so thalt even should a girl be something of n hookworm, she will have acquired at. least more than the rudiments lone ere she left her first school. Doubtless she is an adept at prEc paring certain delicacies, so she de. termines to carry on her education :both in cooking and in dispensiig1 hospitality. Hence into her unofficial outfit goes the very hest chafing-dish" she can afford to buy...

Prahran Mayoral Ball. HELD AT ST. KILDA TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 13 June 1914

Prahran Mayoral Ball. HELD AT ST. KILDA TOWN HALL. The Prahran City Hall having been rendered useless on account of the fire that took place early in the year, the Prahran Mayoral ball, by the kind courtesy of the St. Kilda Council, took place in the St. Kilda Town Hall. The function was held on Thursday evening, when the Mayor and Mayoress of Prahran (Cr and Mrs E. H. Willis) entertained about 800 guests. The ball was a delightful one, and on the whole the Prahran people made themselves feel quite at home in a Town Hall that didn't belong to them. There were some lovely costumes worn by the fair sex, and rumors that had been whispered that the ball was going to be a " dressy" one were proved to have had some foundation. The decorations were very pretty, being of a light and artistic nature. The varied colored and charmins lighting effects were admired. Cen. trally hanging was a display of autumn leaves, with their natural shadings, and a glance showed that this was the key note and...
