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

The Lucky Rabbit By Gladys McGrath Pam and her little brother, Phil, vere re- turning home after a lovely picnic in the bush. High up above the gum trees they could see the sun beginning to decline in the sky. "We must hurry," said Pam, "or we will be late home." Suddenly, little Phil gave a cry oí delight, and darted forward. "A rabbit! A wee black rabbit!" he cried. "Just the kind I want for a pet. See, he ran into that hollow log. Phil pointed to an old moss-covered log.     Down on his knees he went, and peered into the hollow. "I know! You stop at that end, and I will get a long stick and poke it through the other end. Then he will run into your arms." Pam was just as excited as her brother. Finding a long stick, she thrust it into the log, only to give a cry of dis- appointment as she |Prize Card to Joan found it stopped by |Sayer, Box 31, Temora. something hard. "It must be a stone," she said. "But I will soon get it out." So putting her arm into the...

Kodak Book Chases Gloom [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

Kodak Book Chases Gloom "KODAK" (Ernest O'Ferrall), a col- lection of whose short stories has been published by the Endeavour Press (price 5/-), was for over twenty years (he died all too young at 43) one of Australia's leading humorists. His was not merely the humor of the patter mer- chant; he had constructive ability so that the fantastic weavings of his pen, however improbable, sound plausible as you read them. Take, for instance: "Thomson, who had broken his glass in a last whirling argument, was pushed gently out of the saloon and advised to go home." Thom- son doesn't take the bar-tender's ad- vice, but instead picks up with a lioness, and, by lure of lobster and meat pies, leads it to his suburban boarding-house. If you can read this opening story without a gale of laughter threatening your ribs, then there's something wrong with your liver. The other thirty stories in the collec- tion are just as funny. Perhaps the amazing part of this writer's mind was its inventiveness—no...

EDUCATION Should Teach Us How To LIVE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

EDUCATION Should Teach Us How To LIVE WHATEVER one may think about the com- mittee which the Minister for Education has just ap- pointed, it should com- mend itself in two particulars; first, its personnel includes a fair sprinkling of women; and, second, its task is to survey the education of this State as a whole. Girls and boys are not creatures of different species, and their education presents pretty much the same problems. By E. M. TILDESLEY First Essential The committee might well begin by considering physical education. Here is a matter in which New South Wales lags behind. In Northern Europe, especially, they have realised that, to achieve the ideal of "a sound mind in a sound body," you must attend to the body first. Every pupil should spend at least twenty minutes daily, either in a gym- nasium or out-of-doors, doing physical exercises under a competent instructor. Of course, this involves difficulties. The headmistress will find it harder to ar- range the school time-tab...

WOMEN—What WOULD We Do WITHOUT THEM? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

WOMEN—What WOULD We Do WITHOUT THEM ? By REV.     V. C. BELL     If it were written, the story of our women as depression fighters and home savers in the last three years would shine as brightly as the stories of our pioneer life. In this article, specially written for The Aus- tralian Women's Weekly, Rev. Victor C. Bell, M.A., of the Strathfield Presbyterian Church, who is prominent in social service work, discusses the part women have played during the depression period. IT is held by many that the main con- tribution of wives should be that of maintaining harmony in their homes and keeping up a cheerful spirit. This is certainly of supreme value, but the last three years, with their unem- ployment, their misery, sorrow, and heartaches, have placed our womenfolk on a higher plane, and demonstrated their real character, their love and de- votion to home, their resourcefulness and courage, and their sacrifice. I believe that many a...

FORCING TAKE-OUTS and RE-BIDS Contract Bridge.—No. 7 [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

FORCING TAKE-OUTS   and RE-BIDS Contract Bridge.—No. 7 By FRANK CAYLEY In contract bridge the fact has been established that, if a part- nership can account for about 5½ to 6 honor tricks out of the 8 to 8½ which materialise in an aver- age deal, game is nearly certain, provided the best bid can be located. THIS does not mean that whenever you can see the necessary high card strength you must leap straight into "three no trumps." On the contrary, it may take several rounds of calling be- fore the hands can be "fitted." Since an original declaration guaran- tees 2½ honor tricks, it stands to reason   that partner must hold 3 to 3½ honor   tricks (depending upon distribution and the solidity of the suits) if he is to feel confident of winning game.

Until he kissed me I thought that I loved him. I didn't. I never shall again. "We both of us needed this to find that we didn't love each other at all. I don't want to see him any more. I'm going to marry somebody else." "BUT you must love him or you couldn't let him do that," she whispered. "Little fool! You've lived in a nun- nery and I've lived on a memory. Try to understand that emotions sweep people off their feet—but they pass, they don't matter; they aren't real." Jean said: "I think I'm not real. I think something in me is going to break. . . ." and she gave a little choky cry. It was Terry who took her to his heart. "Little sweet. Belovedest of all . . Oh, my dear . . ."

POINTS of VIEW Adventure and Women in Lonely Lands The Head and the Heart? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

Adventure and Women in Lonely Lands The Head and the Heart? IN an address delivered at Manning House (University) Professor H. Tasman Lovell stressed the fact that social work had now "reached a stage where it was governed by scientific principles obtained from economics, psychology, public health, social psychiatry, and public administration." For many years this perfection of social activ- ities has been aimed at, and while admitting that scientific organisation is to be desired most women have an emotional distrust of the "coldness" of science. They feel that, in the striving after scientific ideals, the "human ele- ment" is liable to be overlooked. Once the emo- tions are excluded from any work, it becomes no more than a machine, and those sentiments which were at the heart of the work are missing. Especially charity work. The most successful men and women in the arena of social service have been actuated by a personal sympathy, and if they have made mistakes now and again by pe...

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

Interstate Basketball Basketball selectors have been confronted with an exceedingly difficult task in choosing the team to play in the interstate matches next month. The announcement has been impatiently awaited for some weeks past, but the final choice certainly merits the con- centrated thought that has been expended. CARPENTER, their captain, is perhaps one of the most versatile sports girls in New South Wales. In 1924, while still attending the Leichhardt School, she was chosen to play in the interstate school team in Queensland. She has represented the State in every match since, with one exception, when, two years ago, she turned her attention to baseball. She has twice been chosen to play in the representative women's cricket team, and last year, as a mem- ber of the Randwick-Kensington Ath-   letic Association, she was showing form as a long-distance runner. On her re- turn from Adelaide she will once more join up with Oldfield's women's cricket team. Vice-capta...

Hockey Player is Thrilled [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

ALBERT LITTLEJOHN enjoys the joke with basketball girls at the Show Ground. other State, to be an umpire of note, to give lectures to an appreciative audi- ence. To accomplish just one of these things would satisfy most players. M. Mathieson, who has been a mem- ber of the Nereids team since its in- ception, has filled all these positions many times. She experienced the thrill of her hockey career when, after years of play, she broke her duck and scored her first goal. This was no mean achievement, for the opposing goalie was the interstate player, Grace Johnston. Mathieson has always filled positions in the defence line, hence her inability to reach the op- posing goal. On this occasion she took a position on the wing, and proved that she is a useful member of a team in any position. The Palmer Community Hiking Asso- ciation will hold anot...

An Editorial JULY 29, 1933. A WORD OR TWO ABOUT PRICES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

An Editorial JULY 29, 1933. A WORD OR TWO ABOUT PRICES I SUPPOSE that most women are eco- nomists without being aware of it. But they are. Even the young things who spend their shopping hours trying to make their pennies behave like pounds. Women just have to do things like that.   Anyway, there was not a woman (mother, wife, or daughter) who was not interested to hear that rail and tram fares may be coming down, and that the Monopolies Act may be amended to make it perfectly certain (at the moment it is not certain) that there is no monopoly in the flour trade. These are things that make them- selves felt in the purse and around the meal-table of every home. Every penny off fares in homes where there are two or three travellers means a lot in kitchen craft. Every penny upon food items that carry the least sugges- tion of monopolistic priccfixing is an irritation. Wemen can safely leave the ethical criticism of monopolies to male econo- mists. The criticism women them- ...

MUSIC AS A CAREER FOR GIRLS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

Music AS A CAREER FOR GIRLS Concert work is attractive. By MR. ROLAND FOSTER, F.G.S.M. THERE was a time when music was re- garded chiefly as a social accomplishment     for women, who seldom thought of taking it up as a career unless Music, like every other profes- sion, is overcrowded nowadays, but the old adage, "There is al- ways room at the top," still holds good, and it is a fact that the re- wards of success are even greater than at any previous period. they happened to be gifted with an ex- ceptional voice, and could go upon the   operatic stage or concert platform. To-day, however, we find women strongly represented in every branch of the art, except, perhaps, in orchestral conducting. This is rather strange, be- cause women's acknowledged influence over the opposite sex should be a special qualification in this form of musical activity. Sir Henry Wood was the first con- ductor to introduce women players into his orchestra, and the numb...
