WOMAN'S WORLD Topics of the Week FEMININE AFFAIRS REVIEWED THE FASHIONS OF THE MOMENT (All Communications must be Addressed: "'Pomona,' 'The Weekly Times' Office, Melbourne.") Bustle Threatens Return [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

AVOMAN'SWOBLD —■ *f-Tn ■yj^rili1-1in 'igi £}> FEMININE APPA1RS REVIEWED THE FASHIONS OF THE MOMENT (All Communications must be Addressed : " 'Pomona,' 'Txia Weekly Times' Office, Melbourae.") H=1F= Bustle Threatens Return There is just the faintest rumor that the bustle may come into vogue again. Thirty years ago the bustle was a necessary part of the fashionable toilette. Man3r are hoping that the autocratic directors of modes will not decree that it shall be wholly restored, for it is felt that they are giving it some encouragement, One has only to note the new draped effects at the back of skirts to under stand the imminent danger in which women stand. Some of the skirts are much bunched at the back, and have a large bow, resembling the ki raona obi, set above the drapery. Cor sets, in some instances, are fitted with "improvers" to heighten this effect. Anyhow, we can only hope for the best. Perhaps the fad is not to be considered seriously.

WEIGHT DISPUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

WEIGHT DISPUTE. No settlement of the dispute over the weight forfeit claimed by the managers of Herb M'Coy In the match against Matt Wells on January 17 had been effected when these notes went to press, and there appeared to be no possibility of an agreement. Meanwhile the Stadium Proprietary is hold ing back £200 of "Wells' share of the gate, Mr Dave Levy, manager for "Wells, states that when Wells went on the scales on Janu ary 17 he was four ounces overweight. After the rub-down he was only two ounces over. When he arrived at the Stadium one of the men who looked after the weighing machine was engaged fixing up the scales. What was the use of having Government seals on the scales, said Mr Levy, if some body else could come along afterward and see to them? He did not suggest any under hand work, however. The Stadium authorities explain that the picking out of some lead in one place and putting in a little in another was necessi tated because certain weights, not usually in use, we...

The reformers, he said, held up their hands in holy horror at harmless amusements, and allowed' the destroy ing angel of divorce to drag Christian society to a pagan state without one word of protest. In August of 1912, he read in one of the Melbourne papers that Victoria had established a record for divorce," as over 100 cases had been listed for one week. What a pity that the Commonwealth, which had so strongly advocated a White Australia, would not .endeavor to clear out an enemy far more in jurious to national life than the colored peopies:.of China" or Japan. The Roman Catholic Church from the earliest times had never tolerated a husband, who was sacramentally mar ried, repudiating the woman he had sworn to love so that he ...
