ANTI-MOSQUITO CAMPAIGN The by-law dealing with the de-<*> struction of mosquitoes will be strictly enforced by the Adelaide City Council. As hot weather may be expected now in sufficiently long spells to facilitate the breeding of mosquitoes, house holders should, in their own interests, tjirp immtw^jp^ steps to fnin'"l'"* the pest on their premises, it has been proved that, in mosquito-infested houses, the insects are bred in water on the premises or in the immediate neighborhood. The mosquito la"s ite eggs hi any collection of water avail able, and U t*M? water remains undis turbed for ten days or so the eggs develop into fully matured insects, which usually return to the water con tainer from which they emanated to breed.

A MAID IN MAYFAIR Gossip In London Town By our Special Woman Correspondent London, September 3. THE mannequins who exhibit bridal gowns at the Olympia Fashion Show, manipulating their long trains to the strains of the Wedding March, are all garbed in either while, cream, or parchment color, lace and tulle playing a large part in their toilettes. These are what the fashion leaders have designed for the coming season, and it is interesting, therefore, to find soft frills and flounces, with long tulle veils, much in evidence. An original frock had rows of nar-<*> row lace, very much frilled round the corsage, opening and making full elbow cuffs. With it was worn a dainty cap of narrow crossed bands of the cream soft silk composing the dress. The most original gown was of pure white soft satin, cut cleverly with long curved lines to give a sheath, effect from which the long train emerged. A long garland of orange-blossom hung round the neck of its tall, svelte, and very gr...

The Advertiser ADELAIDE: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1931. THE REAL RUSSIA Mr. Bernard Shaw's eulogium upon Communion, which created such a stir on his return to England from Russia a few weeks ago, has been found to be subject to what reasonable people must regard as important qualifications. "The Russians," said Mr. SUaw, when he descended to the discussion of de tails, and the applicability of Russian methods to other countries, "were told to put their backs Into it, and to ac cept less wages. What would the Bri tish workman say if be were told that?" The British workman is about to be Invited to answer this question through the ballot box. The oligarchy of Moscow Is fully determined not to afford a gCmi^r opportunity for self-expression to the people of Russia.
