Why WOMEN Have FAILED in POLITICS Miss Preston Stanley, ex-M.L.A., Discusses [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

Why WOMEN Have FAILED in POLITICS Miss Preston Stanley, ex-M.L.A., Discusses ALTHOUGH Australia practically pioneered the enfranchisement of women, there is only one woman member of an elected house in all the seven Australian Parliaments at the present time. This is Miss May Holman, of Western Australia. Miss Preston Stanley, the first and only woman to be elected to Parliament in N.S.W., gives her opinion of the reasons for the apparent political failure of women in politics in the following article.       By M. PRESTON STANLEY   AUSTRALIA and New Zealand were among the pioneer countries in ex- tending the franchise to women, and were wont to be held up as example, of the progressive spirit to older and more conservative nations, but it is noteworthy that to-day the women   of these older countries are strikingly in advance of us politically. The world is justified in asking Why?" Yes, why. indeed, should countries t...

Prepare NOW for the BIG Garden EXHIBITION [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

Prepare NOW for the BIG Garden EXHIBITION   "THIS is as nice a little garden, you got here,   Miss, as I seen anywhere. It's a good shape, tucking itself around your home the way it does. You ought to enter it for the Garden Week com- petition in October. Oh no, Miss, that don't matter. There's several sections, you see—yours would be in the small garden class, and a mighty good chance it would have too, I reckon. I know one thing, and that is, that the judges like to see new kinds of flowers in a garden. "JUST pass me that spade a moment,   Miss—thank you. Now I'll tell you what we'll put in here—'Golden Gleam' nasturtium. This is a new variety, and a novelty of the season. It has semi- double flowers and a beautiful musk per- fume. You can grow it in pots or win- dow boxes, as well as beds. I'll fix a pot for that living-room of yours, Miss —it'll look like a ball of sunshine when it blooms. "Oh—I beg your pardon, Miss, did I hurt you? I didn...

CLEVER IDEAS HINTS FROM READERS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

CLEVER IDEA   HINTS FROM READERS THE BOILING of potato peelings and other vegetable matter in aluminium pots which have been blackened by burnt food will be found an excellent cleanser.—Mrs. C. M. Skinner, 36 Don- caster Avenue, Kensington. COSY SLIPPERS are so necessary these cold mornings, and can be made quite easily from discarded felt hats. Open up an old pair of slippers for a pattern. Trim round the tops with   fancy stitching, and put a small bow on the front or side of each one. For the tiny tots, decorate with a "black cat" or "bunny" cut from colored flannel. Mrs. Beatrice Seph- ton, 3 Allawah Flats, Rattray Street, Waverley. INSTEAD OF wasting eggshells, save until washing day and put in the boiler with all white linens. This will relieve them of all stains, and bleach them snow white.—Mrs. Sharp, No. 6 Park Street, Clovelly. NOW THAT fires are here and such a lot of fuel is needed, and very little money sometimes to buy it with, it is a great s...

VAST ARMY in the EISTEDDFOD! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

VAST ARMY in the EISTEDDFOD ! Peter Dawson By ROBERT C. McCALL   However far women may lag behind the men in creative musi- cal art, they are not slow to assert their talents as interpreters. Interesting evi- dence on this point arises out of the entries in the City of Sydney Eisteddfod. The organiser tells me that over 5000 entries have been received, and that about two-thirds of these are from women and girls. THE Eisteddfod organisers very rightly have declared that encour- agement of juvenile talent should be one of the main objects of these com- petitions, and so they have been speci- ally generous with sections allocated to the youngsters. The response has been startling, 1500 juvenile musicians having declared their intention to compete. The choral entries also break all records for competitions of the sort in Australia. Sixty choirs are to compete. Of these, seven (four adult choirs, and three of children), will come from other States. These are enthusiasts inde...

All KEYED UP [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

All KEYED UP GEORGE BANNISTER, who sought nothing but a peaceful hour, and who accordingly sat in the park alone, stooped, and from the grass picked up a key. Attached to it was a little disc announcing that, should this key ever be lost, the finder would receive five shillings reward if he returned it to a certain agency in the city, where it was registered. Now as George was always pre- pared to earn an honest penny, he   went to the address referred to, and here a spectacled boy, the last left in the office, rather grudgingly con- sulted files and ledgers, only to shake his head. The owner of this key had failed to pay the year's subscription; the promise to provide any reward had lapsed; and all that the spectacled boy could do was, as a friend, to give George the name and address of the owner, which by the rules of the office he probably was not entitled to do, but he would risk it. Now had the name been Solomon Isaacs, George might have put the -By Hylton Cleaver ...

Lovely Ladies of the Economic Conference Women of 66 Nations LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

Lovely Ladies of the Economic Conference       Women of 66 Nations LONDON. Some of the most charming cosmopoli- tan women in the world are gathered together in London as the result of the Economic Conference.   The womenfolk belonging to the dele- gates of 66 nations have brought more than a dash of exotic, exciting atmos- phere to London's social season. SOME of the most lovely and cultured among them are, of course, already prominent in London society. The wives of the various Ministers of foreign powers stationed in London number among them women who are noted as brilliant hostesses. Among the most prominent are Mme de Ayala (wife of the Spanish Ambassador), Mme Regis de Oliveira (wife of the Brazilian Am- bassador), Baroness Palmstierna (wife of the Swedish Minister), Mme Matsu- diara (wife of the Japanese Ambassador), and Mme van Swinderen (wife of the Dutch Minister). At the all-women dinner party given by Miss Ishbel MacDona...

EXOTIC Dinner DECORATIONS QUAINT CACTUS Finds PLACE at LAST [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

EXOTIC Dinner DECORATIONS QUAINT CACTUS Finds PLACE at LAST CACTUS has a weird fascination, and now it has come so much into fashion that it has been adopted for table decoration. New York million- aires, tired of floral arrangements, find stimulation in the decorative value of these quaintly shaped bad fairies of the flower world. As a rule the dwarf specimens are chosen for in- doors. These re- semble in miniature         the prickly cactus that everyone knows. A cactus plant does not attract the average woman, but Thea Proc- tor and Adrian Feint, two of our well-known artists, enjoy using them for their patterned pictures. Before the craze became general in the capitals of Europe and the United States, Mr. Herbert Solomon, who is well known as a cultivator of orchids and other exotic flowers, had planned a garden of cactus. When he gave a dinner to a few friends from Eng- land he arranged his dining table in the novel manner shown in the pic...

HANDS That SPEAK Around the GREEN TABLE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

HANDS That SPEAK Around the GREEN TABLE It's no use having a poker face at the little green table if your hands tell all your secrets—and they do! This fascinating article will surprise most women. It's different—not only for its worldly wisdom but for the helpful little hints it gires on bridge as well as beauty. MORE people follow the game of cards than any other sort of game. It offers escape from boredom, and a point of contact between people. But the greatest charm lies in the ever- changing combination of cards, and the opportunity to do things when a good hand is dealt. At the moment, as card fashion has it, every corner of the world has people fervently studying the rules of auction or contract. A good "bridge hand" improves when the cards are held by an attractive hand. Experts in the game know how to inter- pret the hands of their co-players. Hands divulge more character than their own- ers would like to admit. Bridge hands, like bridge faces, would like to retain their se...

MODERN PIONEERING by UNEMPLOYED FAMILIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

MODERN PIONEERING by UNEMPLOYED FAMILIES To provide home for families whose weekly anguish is the rap of the rent- collector at the door while the children are under-     fed and inadequately clothed, and to give them   some standard of independence and security,   savors slightly of a Utopian dream.               Utopian in so far that it has not yet been the   fortune of any Government machinery to carry such   a dream to reality, but practical, surely, if the right spirit of humanitarianism is at the back of it, and if the Hammond Pioneer Home Trust ideals are   accorded the help and sympathy they ask for. ALDERMAN JENNINGS, M.P., speak-     ing to the Randwick Council, said   that conditions existing in camps on our public areas and Crown lands were such as had ...

Helen Burke's Cookery Book [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

Helen Burke's Cookery Book MEN like food, and they like it well cooked and well served. Women are getting tired, not so much with food in its dressed state—as in the devising of new ways of dressing and cooking it. Helen Burke is doing her best to alter this state of affairs. Her cookery book, as we are told on the jacket cover, "is a rich mine of tested recipes, useful hints, and eminently sensible 'asides.' " She is in charge of the cooking page of one of London's biggest papers, too. Certainly the chatty introduction she writes to many of her dishes arouses an interest to try them and find out for oneself just how luscious they are. Like a good housewife, Miss Burke gives advice on the equipping of the kitchen. There is wisdom in what she says about the right height of the sink, and the advisability of using a stool on which to sit when doing many odd jobs. Few Australians, it seems to us, find the stock pot the necessity (is it the fault of the gas stove) that Helen Burke &a...

EMOTIONS OF the ROMANTIC NINETIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

EMOTIONS OF   the ROMANTIC NINETIES ALL too few are the 50 odd pages   devoted to the Romantic Nineties in Mr. Jose's book of that name. A writer himself and one of the group of writers and artists of that period, he gives us intimate glimpses of the per- sonalities of the men and women whose   names are now known throughout this   land, and, in many cases, overseas as well.   George Lambert, Paterson, Lawson,   Arthur Adams, Dave Soutar, Victor Daley, Chris. Brennan, Rod. Quinn,   John Farrell, Phil May, and Barbara   Baynton, are but a few of those men- tioned.   Of an Australia that was experi- encing a naissance rather than a renaissance as in the London of the Nineties, where decadence hobnobbed with renaissance, the author says:— "We had no decadents to combat (or to fondle), but only the upward rush of youthful emotion, youth trying out in all manner of awkward...

POINTS of VIEW A Nice Time for Women [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

A Nice Time for Women IS there no end to this German man-making of the world women are to live in? We now have the Sports Dictator of Germany, Herr von Tschammer Osten, delivering himself of the edict that women's sporting activities must henceforth be subordinated to their domestic duties. Domestic duties first—sport later, is his decree, and then only sport not harmful to feminine health. Cranks who play tennis for hours, and exhibitors of "peevishness" among champions of both sexes, are to be "crushed." There is not much wrong with a good deal of all this, but how much nicer without its lumberingly heavy Teutonism (going to "crush" things, mind you!) and its absurd tinge of the pontifical man pointing the "thus" and "thither" to women. * * * The Economics of Marriage C.B. writes:—"The failure of women graduates to marry has been discussed from intellec- tual and sentimental points of view; but what of the economic? "That the struggling mother in a poor home is often happier than ...
