ELASTIC Frocks Are CLINGING [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

ELASTIC Frocks Are CLINGING From Nell Murray, Special Repre- sentative in Europe for The Aus- tralian Women's Weekly. LONDON. Another Paris fashion sensation con- sists of the skin tight frocks of elas- tic fabric which were first introduced to the Parisian couture by Schiapar- elli. Everyone is asking "How is it done?" because these ultra-clinging garments give to every movement, al- though their wearers look as if they had been poured into them. Even shoulder-straps and belt are made of elastic ribbon. As in London and New York, evening gowns made of cotton organdie or tail- ored linen are enjoying a great vogue in Paris. Last week there was the "Or- gandie Ball" at Les Ambassadeurs (similar to the Lacquer Ball held earlier in the season). One of the most striking creations was worn by the beautiful Parisian act- ress, Mlle. Jane Aubert, a blonde of 27 years old whose legs are insured for £100,000, and considered so shapely that she has been nominated by Mistinguett as her success...

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

LITTLE . . .     . .THEATRES   ONLY at the very beginning did "Mr Prohack," produced last week at the Savoy by the Experimental Theatre Group, seem disappointing, for once the players got into their stride it went with a swing, the audience obviously finding this rather nebulous comedy highly amusing. The story tells how an overworked salaried official suddenly comes into a fortune, and his and his family's re- sulting loss of their peace of mind. Mr Edward Howell was cleverly monoton- ous as "Mr. Prohack"; Florentine Danciger, although a trifle too conscious of her hands, was particularly striking in her portrayal of the sophisticated Lady Massulam; Cedric Kempson was a darling as the old family friend; and Patricia Nall, as Dominic Harnett; Max van Hemert, William Hume, and Marie Hemingway, did good work. * * * One is apt to have decided qualms when a Little Theatre announces its intention to present any play in which one is particularly inte...

MOREE GIRL has HIGHEST Dancing HONORS Women in Business [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

MOREE GIRL has HIGHEST Dancing HONORS Women in Business A Moree girl, Miss M. G. Sievers, now living in Sydney, has the highest dan- cing diplomas in Australia. SHE is president of the N.S.W. Dance Teachers Society, which is staging a recital on August 16, at the Conserva- torium, when the latest developments in all branches of dancing will be demon- strated by 18 members of the society and their pupils. Miss Sievers started her career as a gymnast. When she had taught for two years in Sydney, she went to England to study dancing. After graduating with Espinosa and the Ginner Mawer School, she returned to Sydney and took up teaching again. Most teachers would have been satis- fied with the degrees Miss Sievers had already won for herself; but she is an ambitious young woman, very anxious that Australia should benefit by the most up-to-date methods of dancing and gymnastic tuition, so in 1928 she packed up her things once more, threw her ballet shoes into a bag, and sailed for Sweden...

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

PRIVATE VIEWS "TELL ME TO-NIGHT" WE are dashed if we will discuss "Tell Me To-night" again, except to say it is one of the two shows in town which must not be missed. —Mayfair. * * * "THE BILLION DOLLAR SCANDAL" SEEMINGLY, neither billions of dol- lars nor 'fluence to the nth degree can avert prison episodes in U.S.A. At least, that is the impression their films apparently aim to convey. Robert Armstrong, Constance Cum- mings, Olga Baclanove, Frank Morgan, James Gleeson, and hosts of others take part in "Billion Dollar Scandal." What exactly is the point of it all we are not too sure, but there are liberal sprink- lings of pickpockets, super-super detec- tives, boxers, and such who deceive each other with charming equanimity time and again. In the end the conspirators, who haven't as yet taken their own lives, go to Atlanta, while "Fingers" (a masseur), together with "Ratsky" (a pickpocket) and "The Kid" (a boxer), go to prison. —Capitol. * * * "FRA DIAVOLO" ONE is pleased, if not a...

COMMENTS on No. 2 Quandary [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

COMMENTS on No. 2 Quandary Prize-winners in No. 1 Quandary are announced on this page, together with No. 3 Quandary, for which a prize of £10 is offered for the best entry, and five consolation prizes of 10/-. WINNERS in No. 2 Quandary, which is now closed, will be announced next week. Entries have poured in every day. Meantime The Australian Women's Weekly put the question to several well- known people, and received the follow- ing answers:— Mr. Rayner Hoff said: "I would be sure I had been given the best advice possible, by more than one surgeon, then I would decide without thinking too long over the issues. Probably as a result of my war experiences, I would choose, whatever the sex of the child, to have it undergo the operation. Mrs. Greg McGirr (wife of the ex Minister for Motherhood, and the mother of nine children) thinks that, whether the child was a girl or a boy, one would have to consider its heredity. If the child of brilliant parents, it would be expected to find its gr...

Zella Wins £1000 £100, £20, Many £10's & £5's All Last Monday, in 142nd Lottery, as expected For some time past Madame Zella has been telling her clients that she expected the 142nd drawing of the N.S.W. State Lottery to mark the commencement of a period in which conditions would be ideal for her to win a record number of prizes for her clients. Her confidence has been justified. In the 142nd Lottery, drawn last Monday, she won enormous sums of money for her clients, including the following prizes:— 2nd prize of £1000 with ticket No. 23150. £100 with ticket No. 23249. In addition to these prizes she won a £20 prize for 7 of her clients, £10 prizes for 63 of her clients, and £5 prizes for 119 of her clients. This is   definitely a record. CONFIDENCE JUSTIFIED In the light of these wins, Madame Zella's recent statement is of unusual   interest. This statement, which ap- peared in last Sunday's "Sun" and "Truth," is as follows, and is quoted word for w...

QUANDARY Unveils Many Human DOCUMENTS Over one thousand entries were received in the first "What Would You Do?" competition, winners of which are announced below. They came from all over Aus- tralia, and include many inter- esting human documents. READERS had to choose which of three husbands would be prefer- able—the kind, affectionate, generous, though unfaithful, man; the faithful type, but given to nagging; or a man lovable and famous in the eyes of the world, and faithful,   but moody and   quick tempered.   The winner of   the first prize of   £10 is "Kaya," of   Fitzroy Street, Kir-   ribilli. Her judg-   ment is based on   her own experience,   and for this reason   her full name and   address cannot be   published.   "A few years   ago," writes   "Kaya," "I married a ma...

Let's Talk Of INTERESTING PEOPLE... [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

--Let's Talk Of-- INTERESTING PEOPLE . . . MAJOR ANGUS MAJOR ANGUS is matron of the Women's Hostel and the Samaritan Home run by the Salvation Army to help the poor and destitute women of Sydney. At the hostel a small charge is made for bed and for meals. At the Samaritan Home a still smaller sum is charged— but, if there are no pennies to pay with, there is no difference in the welcome you get, or in the meal or the bed pro- vided. The hostel is the only home many a girl has known, and when her job leaves her (as they have a habit of doing these days), then back she comes and stays until she can land another. Major Angus laughs when asked what she does in her spare time. She has so little. MISS GWEN JACKSON MISS GWEN JACKSON, of Cambridge Street, Paddington, London, has never flown an aeroplane in her life, but that is not preventing her from at- tempting to break Mr. John Tranum's record delayed parachute drop of 17,500 feet. Miss Jackson is at present train- ing for the feat at H...

Plenty of GOOD GIRLS Go WRONG This Way! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

Plenty of GOOD GIRLS Go WRONG This Way! Is there any wo-     man who hasn't had just such a little tragedy as this? Out somewhere in the afternoon, per- haps, at a bridge party. Someone tells you a thrilling recipe. Down on the score-card you jot it. Off home, all thrilled, to try it. Soon it's in the oven. What a nice sur- prise for Tom when he comes to dinner. Ah! A few minutes to try on that new apron. Doesn't it look sweet, and housewifely? B-r-r-r! The telephone. "Why, my dear, I've such a lot to tell you! Did you hear-" Of course, Tom had to bring visitors home. Haven't got a thing to give them. To think of that beautiful dinner. RUINED! I'll have to fry some eggs. They're all being very nice and all that-but that lovely FISH. I think I WILL cry. It's a shame. Hate eggs, anyway. I bet they're laughing at me. The minutes pass. Why, what's that? Something- burn- ing! Ooh! The FISH! I could have a good CRY. They really look appetising, don't they. After ...

British and AUSTRALIAN FILMS in the MAKING [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

British and AUSTRALIAN FILMS in the MAKING Do you remember wondering not so long ago, just what it was about a certain talkie that made it so pleasant? Suddenly you realised that the players were speaking English—pure English. Sound on the screen opened the door to British pictures, and just as British pictures find an appreciative audience in Austra- lia, Australian pictures are wel- comed in England. FOLLOWING this welcome extended to British pictures in Australia, Aus- tralian pictures were made with the ulti- mate aim of building a reciprocal trade in England. "It is essential that our pictures should be fitting representatives over- seas. A film that depicts Australian national life in the manner in which Noel Coward presented a review of Eng- lish life in "Cavalcade" would be a national advertisement of enormous value, and, as such, should receive every assistance from the Government." Mr. Stuart Doyle, in a speech to the Science Club, thus briefly sketched the objective of Au...

ONCE in a LIFETIME the RAILWAYS Acted TOO QUICKLY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

ONCE in a LIFETIME the RAILWAYS Acted TOO QUICKLY For four weary years and more the N.S.W. Country Women's Association, spurred on by mem- bers from Far West and Con- dobolin groups, has made regu- lar requests to various railway authorities that second-class sleep- ers be provided on long-distance trains. With monotonous regu- larity the railways have replied with a polite refusal. UNTIL Colonel Bruxner became Min- ister for Transport last year this ex- change of correspondence was in danger of becoming a tradition, like the Primate's annual letter to the Royal Agricultural Society asking that the Show be closed on Good Friday. But the new Minister, a country man himself, has changed all this. In fact, he acted so quickly on receipt of the Country Women's As- sociation's last letter that the experi- ment of second-class sleepers has been made at the very worst possible time of the year. Recently the Railway Department is- sued a statement in the daily papers to the effect that the ...

INTIMATE SKETCH Of DAINTY LINGERIE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

INTIMATE SKETCH   Of DAINTY LINGERIE   Dainty simplicity, with well-cut lines falling softly round the curves of the figure, confers a distinctive touch to this lingerie. Crepe-de-chene, a soft China silk, or with the approach of spring and thoughts of warm weather, floral voile would make up delightfully. On material of self-color, the tiny sprays are simply worked and very attractive. On floral voile or any other patterned material, the lace edging will be the only finish required. 2365 (left).

Another EXCLUSIVE Design THAT IS VERY Effective [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

Another EXCLUSIVE Design THAT IS VERY   Effective This week's model in the series of delightful jumpers, exclusive to The Australian W omen's   Weekly, is knitted in chevron pattern. The color contrast in the yoke and roll collar is charming, and can be exploited indefinitely by a knitter with a knowledge of the blending of colors. Chevron pattern closely re- sembles the well-known "Moss" stitch, but, in keeping with the diagonal stripes that are so ap- parent in the newest fashions, it gives the effect of being knitted in fine zig-zag ribbings. Materials: Eight skeins of red, 1 skein kasha, 3-ply wool, pair No. 12 steel needles, pair No. 10 bone needles. Measurements: Length from shoulder to lower edge, 19 inches; bust, 34 inches; sleeve seam, 19 inches. The Back: With red wool and No. 12 needles cast on 124 sts., knit into back, and rib 1 plain, 1 purl, for 3 inches. Change to No. 10 needles and work chevron pattern as follows:— Row 1: *K. 2, p. 2.

ORANGES are HEALTHY and POPULAR, TOO [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 29 July 1933

ORANGES are HEALTHY and POPULAR, TOO TRAVELLING through an orange-growing district, one sees acre upon acre of trees laden with luscious, golden fruit, furnishing protective food ele- ments in a most appetising form. Oranges have special dietetic qualities which are valuable in the daily diet. They aid digestion. The fruit acids give oranges their delicious refreshing flavor, stimulating the appetite, and they are slightly laxative. The minerals build strong bones and teeth, rich blood and nerve tissue. Oranges contain calcium, phosphorus and iron. Fruit sugar furnishes heat and energy. The sugar in an orange is easily di- gested. Water, which is so necessary in the daily diet. Mother Nature provides it in germ-proof containers--oranges--which are better than artificial beverages. Vitamins are the protective food ele- ments necessary for growth and health. Oranges contain vitamins A, B, and C. The latter prevents scurvy, and, as it cannot be stored in the body, it should be eaten da...
