Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933
Are You An Indoor Worker? There is no doubt many people spend considerably more time indoors than is good for their health. They are breathing only partially pure air and leading a more or less sedentary life, both of which tend to disorgan- ise the system and upset the digestive tract. For various reasons this type of existence is frequently unavoidable, but, whether chosen or compulsory, steps must be taken to maintain the system as close to normal as possible. Of course, the most import- ant precaution is to keep the bowels in regular con- dition. In such cases a course of will be found invaluable. Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills are purely vegetable and are unsurpassed as a household remedy for everyday complaints, such as Constipation, Indiges- tion, Biliousness, Sick Headaches, Rheumatism, Bad Breath, Piles, Pimples, Blotches, and Kidney Troubles.
Women Fail to Recognise HUSBANDS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933
Women Fail to Recognise Is it possible that after years of life together any woman could fail to identify her own husband? INTEREST has been revived in the famous Bruneri-Canella case in Italy by the release from prison of a convict, who was claimed by one woman to be Professor Canella, her lost spouse, and by another to be Mario Bruneri, a printer, who had escaped from an Italian prison. The courts of Italy held that the man was Bruneri, and sent him back to gaol. On his release the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; other day (the cables report), he re- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; fused to accept the decision of the courts, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; and publicly acknowledged Signora &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Ca...
THE BODY BEAUTIFUL ENSEMBLE of BEAUTY MUST Be COMPLETE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933
THE BODY BEAUTIFUL &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ENSEMBLE of BEAUTY MUST Be COMPLETE By PAM Facial beauty is not the only thing where feminine charm is concerned - there are many etceteras that must not be over- looked. Just take your mirror and judge for yourself. Treatment for Neck, Shoulders and Arms Did you notice that neck-those shoulders, too look closer and note the loss in harmony and equilibrium. Neck contour means everything to a pleasing face, in fact there must be a harmony or balance that really extends to shoulders and arms. YOU will admit that the most per- fect neck loses its charm completely unless its skin texture is fine and unblemished. This, of course, provided that contour is all that can be desired. Although not always the fault of the subject, a thin and scraggy neck calls for immediate attention, and the treat- ment adopted should benefit both skin and surface tissues as a whole. To keep the neck white, soft, and rounded in cont...
Evening Wear [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933
Evening Wear Evening wraps are usually wisps of material. Swagger coats in stiff pastel colored satins, especially white, wraps of summer velvet, jackets and capes of taffeta and organdie. Possibly the most popular will be the bolero or cape made of organdie or pique. There is one sketched. Chanel makes white pique like a man's waist- &nbsp; coat, and then puts in sleeves-very &nbsp; square at the shoulder. Particularly smart, as well as useful, for a spring wrap is the one sketched &nbsp; on this page. Vionnet designs it. It is made in either velvet or crepe in dark &nbsp; blue, lined with red. You slip this over &nbsp; your head (it opens part way down the back), and in front it is just a band &nbsp; across your chest, high at the throat, &nbsp; and extending about 15 inches down. You will feel very military with the red &nbsp; making a background for your figure. &nbsp; You can hold the cape tightly round you...

SURELY a spirited old lady may be the prettiest sight in the world. For my part, I confess that it is they, and not the young ones, who have been my undoing. Just as I was about to fall in love I suddenly found I preferred the mother.—J. M. Barrie. Prize of 10/- to Mrs. M. C. Hull, Audley, National Park, N.S.W.

Quilting Revival in Sydney [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933
Quilting Revival in Sydney It is interesting to learn that the art of quilting is being revived in Sydney, through the medium of the classes being held under Government direction for unemployed women. At the request of the Department of Labor and Industry, Mrs. Toby Browne is arranging for various wool crafts to be demonstrated at these classes, and in this connection she is being assisted by Mrs. A. J. Brown in teaching quilt- ing. The art of quilting has come down to us from very early days. It is thought that probably it was first used for the soft, padded undergarment, over which the medieval knight wore his suit of armor. Quilting ornamented the stiff gowns of Tudor days, and was revived in the eighteenth century for petticoats. It has always found a place in the houses of England and Wales in the form of bed- covers and hangings. Quilting is a traditional craft in the north and west of England and among the Welsh miners' wives. The designs are handed down from mother to daught...
