COUNTRY MATCHES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

COUNTRY MATCHES Eight Hour Day week-end affords an opportunity to town and country players to arrange country matches. THESE matches are advantageous in more ways than one. In addition to providing a very welcome break for the city girls, it enables the girls to know each other apart from the playing fields, and generally gives social advantages, while the actual play against fresh teams is of inestimable value to both city and country girls. From the Woollahra Park section the A.M.P. team has expressed a wish to visit Bathurst. Wynola II are anxious to ar- range a match against Bowral at Bowral. From the Kensington section two teams have already signified their willingness to accept invitations from country teams.

SUPERVISED PLAYGROUNDS Needed for CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

SUPERVISED PLAYGROUNDS         Needed for CHILDREN homes to adequate- ly move, much less to run about and play, I am ap- palled at the stu- pidity, unwisdom, apathy, and cruelty of the grown-ups. More particularly am I appalled at the unwisdom and lack of common business sense of our civic and politi- cal pastors and masters in that they let this precious childhood, this glorious stuff of youth from which all that is great and good and beautiful in life and in the world is made, be trampled upon and stamped out in the grime of the city streets. It is true we have some splendid day nurseries, of which Lady McCal- lum and her band of workers may well be proud, where children from eighteen |SWINGING and   months are taken |dreaming while the and cared for in a |traffic roars by out- most happy and |side the fence efficient way, and we have also our Free Kindergartens, where toddlers at a very early age may enter, but thes...

OUR TROPICS Are Not FOR WOMEN! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

OUR TROPICS Are Not FOR WOMEN!   By DR. MARIE BENTIVOGLIO, D. Sc.. Dip. Ed., D. Phil., Dip, Geog. Can white women settle in the Northern Territory? "Emphatically, no," was the answer given to the question by Dr Marie Bentivogio when interviewed by The Australian Women's   Weekly. Dr. Bentivoglio has made a special study of the Australian "back-door" problem, at present of such interest owing to Govern- mental plans for its settlement. TRUE, other lands, such as India and Africa, had an equally trying cli- mate, said Dr. Bentivoglio; but in India and Africa there was an abundance of strong and cheap native labor, so that the white woman was spared all heavy THE AUSTRALIAN aboriginal woman is a heartbreak as a domestic help. work, and would think even such little household tasks as polishing drudgery.

WINNERS of £5oo in Tangled LETTERS The Tangled Letters Competi- tion judging was completed this week, and the names and ad- dresses of winners of the £500 prize-money are given below. Over 30,000 entries were re- ceived, and each one was indi- vidually checked. ENTRANTS in the competition should be pleased to know that three hos- pitals—N.S.W. Community Hospital, Food for Babies Fund, and "Dalwood'' Health Home—will each receive a cheque for 50 guineas as a result of the enter- prise of the Australian Women's Weekly in conducting the "Tangled Letters" Competition.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE A WEEK in the SNOW? SNOW [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE A WEEK in the SNOW? Read the fascin- ating short story on page 17. This illus- tration by Boothroyd shows Janice, the heroine of the story. "Once out in the snow Janice suffered a com- plete eclipse, for most of the other girls were able to balance on their skis. But Janice in her smart blue suit was helpless. . ." A Week in the i SNOW Illustration by Boothroyd on Front Page ANICE looked out oí her bedroom window and gave a little shiver. Partly from cold, partly from excite- ment. Snow every- where; in thick ridges on the sill, in swirls, like boiling milk, on the ground, in a film, like fine sugar, on the fences. Still it was lovely. All that snow outside, and inside the com- fort of hot-water pipes, of furred mules and warm dressing-gown. She pulled it closer round her. A week ago, even yesterday morn- ing, she had awakened to the chill of her suburban bedroom with stockings pinned to the curtains to catch the morning sunshine and the bed on which she slept wai...

WOMEN'S LOYALTY LEAGUE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

WOMEN'S LOYALTY LEAGUE Formed in April of last year with the principal object of encouraging loyalty to the Empire, the Women's Loyalty League, which has its offices in 14 Martin Place, will review its activities of the year at its first annual meeting on August 1. With 1300 members the society has advanced considerably during its first year of work. Twelve branches have been formed in the suburbs of Sydney, and three in country districts. Women of all classes, denominations, or creeds are   welcomed as members, and all efforts are made to stamp out class hatred, to educate women in the wise use of the franchise apart from party bias, and to oppose strenuously all attempts to in- culcate in children disloyalty and atheistic principles. One of the principal interests of the organisation is the formation of craft clubs. Well established is the Glebe- Ultimo Club, which meets at the Pres- byterian Manse, Quarrie Street, Ultimo. Under the tuition of Mrs. A. D. Smith and Mrs...

WORK GOES ON APACE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

WORK GOES ON APACE AT the conference of the Country Women's Association executive com- mittee, now sitting, the honorary secre- tary's report showed that, since the be- ginning of the year, twelve new branches had been opened in various parts of the State, and that fourteen branches, realising the need of interest- ing the younger generation, had formed juvenile sets. Fresh interest had been stimulated in the Angledool branch by Lady Allar - dyce's address on "The Work of Wo- men's Organisations in Other Lands," when she compared the lives of some of the women in far-away countries with those of the women in our own land, and stressed the necessity for unity among women. Membership was increased as a result, the newly appointed office-bearers being:—Presi- dent, Mrs. Dowdle; vice-presidents, Mesdames S. Hatfield and P. Malloy; honorary treasurer, Miss R. Graham; and honorary secretary, Miss M. Rob- ertson. The objective of this branch is to reopen the local hospital. Oberon branch, ...

Hospital Recognises WORTH OF WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

Hospital Recognises WORTH OF WOMEN St. Luke's Hospital is a very fine in- stitution, and has become famed for its comfort and good nursing. How much of this is due to women? With all the rumors of the Govern- ment's decision to appoint women to hospital boards throughout the State it is an opportune time to draw attention to the fact that St. Luke's directorate has always included women. MRS. HUBERT FAIRFAX, its first hon. secretary, is a member of the board, so is Lady Harvey, Lady Wade, Mrs. Percy Cross- ing, Miss Blanche Blomfield, and Mrs.   W. B. Studdy. The outstanding   work of another woman, that of Mrs. Roystone       Davey, who was   hon. secretary for   five years, must   also be remem-   bered.   The self-sacri- ficing social work   of women is   demonstrated in     the 55 suburban &n...

PATTERNS in STOCK [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

PATTERNS in STOCK COSY and comfortable little pyjamas are featured from our stock this week. With small feet snugly encased, the youngest members of the family will laugh at the cold. Pyjamas are apt to perplex the home dressmaker. Unless skilfully cut, they are not only difficult to make, but will wear out very quickly. Further, to use a well-designed pattern ensures a mini- mum of material in the cutting, and, therefore, economy. Economical cutting and straight- forward directions are the two out- standing features of our stock patterns. The complete range includes tunic and blouse for the schoolgirl, trousers and shirt waist for the boys, blazers and dressing-gown, baby's layette, in fact, every garment for which the mother of a family is constantly seeking really reliable patterns. Our stock pattern department will solve all the problems of the family seamstress. WX76.—Sleeping suit with feet and back opening. Material required, one and five-eighth yards. To fit size 2-4 years. ...

ARTISTIC COMPLEX SAIDE Develops An [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

ARTISTIC COMPLEX SAIDE Develops An This week I have been browsing among things ancient and artistic. Words have failed me, but—"the camera never lies"—so I leave the camera to tell my story. OF course, with the thermometer con- sistently registering temperatures that make thick frost a daily circum- stance, it required no effort of will to think about "the doings" round the fire- place. Gleaming brass will reflect the cosy gleam of the flames, and, at a very small outlay, the fireplace can be the most decorative note in the living-room. The possibilities of a fire-screen were something that hitherto I have not ex- plored to the full. Antique brass is, un- doubtedly, the most desirable material for a fire-screen, and is also the most durable—a combination of assets that is, alas, all too rare! Seascapes and landscapes, windmills and what-not, are all cleverly depicted thereon—or rather, they are depicted on different models and await your choice for 17/6. By the time I had dallied wi...

Young Society Helping Needy [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

Young Society Helping Needy There are many little girls in the Presbyterian Constitutional Diocese to- day who have reason to thank the workers of the Dorcas Society for acting the part of fairy god-mother and pro- viding them with a warm and pretty frock not only suitable for week days, but for Sundays also. Mothers, too, may look at bright patchwork quilts on their beds and think with appreciation of the women of the society. FORMED only a year ago—its first birthday was celebrated on July 15 —under the auspices of the Amalga- mated Presbyterian Churches, Waterloo, Woolloomooloo, Redfern, and Ultimo, now known as the Constitutional Church, and which is worked by the Rev. G. M. Scott with the assistance of students, the Dorcas Society meets in a room at the Presbyterian Assembly Hall, Jamieson Street, on Mondays and Fridays to sew for needy members of the church. With Mrs. Kenneth Edwards and Mrs. G. M. Scott as leaders, the room was secured at a small rental from the Assembly Hall...

CHEAP [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

CHEAP AT the Carlton Hotel, Johannesburg, two young men were just finishing dinner. There was a glow of school- boy enjoyment about them, for it was the first time in months that they had left their respective farms. Jack Oakley, a man of substance, was stock- breeding on tho high veld, while Mark Egerton had a modest citrus estate near Barberton, where by some miracle he had hung on to sol- vency for three years—ever since his arrival in South Africa. This rare and mellow evening had gone to Mark's head a little. Every detail was so sharply appreciated: the food, the quiet service, the smoothness of his own shirt-front, the women's clothes, the women's voices. He raised a glass, and his blue eyes shone over the rim. "To the Future!" He drank, and sighed happily. "Next time I come up it may be to meet Georgie." Jack Oakley smiled indulgently. He was but little the elder of the two, but his eyes and voice were languid with sophistication. He had been a man of the world in his cradle,...
