AT THE ROYAL ART SOCIETY'S EXHIBITION. &nbsp; THREE HUNDRED GUINEAS (the price asked) for this unusual nude study, makes it the highest priced picture in the Royal Art Society's exhibition, which opened on Friday.

Visitors to the exhibition are strongly reminded by this picture of the paint- ing in the Sydney Art Gallery which shows a Venetian cafe reflected in a mirror.

STOP That Next WAR NOW [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
STOP That Next WAR NOW Think of it . . . 19 years have slipped away since August 4, 1914, when the world was plunged into the most terrible war of history. At the time everybody thought the disaster was of such magni- tude that its horrors could never be for- gotten, but already the war has become a memory, and, strangely enough, not an unpleasant one. IT is human nature to remember the &nbsp; best of everything, and so the best of the War has been recorded, not only in memories, but in literature and art, with the inevitable result that the War is being preserved in a sugary coating of romance. This psychological anti-climax to a long period of terror is characteristic of all wars. It has happened before, and has played an important part in making fresh wars possible. The last war, however, was unique in this respect, it produced the League of Nations and its associate organisation, The League of Nations Union, and if these bodies have done nothing else they have at least d...
Through GRACE to BEAUTY The New AUSTRALIAN Cult [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
Through GRACE to BEAUTY FOR years we have been treated to displays of German posture and Russian posture and other Continental ideas of the cultivation of bodily grace and correct carriage. Grace comes naturally to Aus- tralian girls, and they are mentally alert and naturally of athletic build. Posture culture for them assumes an entirely different aspect, and the new Australian Posture Culture is destined to revolutionise our ideas. The New AUSTRALIAN Cult MOVEMENTS in posture culture are a series of studies in grace. The guiding principle is that of perfect co-ordination between mind and body. To achieve this means perfect balance. The muscles of the arms, legs, and, indeed, of the entire body, must be attuned to give instant response and to result in perfect control. The mental outlook is of the utmost importance in perfecting this control. To walk with healthful gait and un- studied grace calls for mental poise. In this factor lies the reason for the differ- ence in posture cult...

LONDON Pays TRIBUTE to AUSTRALIAN Artist [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
LONDON Pays TRIBUTE to AUSTRALIAN Artist From Nell Murray, Special &nbsp; &nbsp; Representative in Europe for &nbsp; &nbsp; The Australian Women's Weekly, &nbsp; &nbsp; MOST of the noted &nbsp; &nbsp; dancers and teachers in London were present, all of them with wonderfully slim figures. Madame Genee her- self, in a lovely blue and gold flowered brocade frock, provided a perfect example of what dancing can do to keep the figure young. Among the Guests The president of the Royal Academy (Sir William Llewellyn) was in the chair, and in his introductory speech conjured up all the old glories of the ballet in the Empire and Alhambra days of the past. Cheers greeted his sugges- &nbsp; tion that in view of the work which Madame Genee had since performed in furthering the cause of the British ballet, a Royal charter should be granted. Sir Landon Ron- ald made his audi- ence smile when he confessed that (in spite of his...
By a Girl of 16 "VANITY" [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
By a Girl of 16— ? "VANITY" I have pondered for days on the &nbsp; subject of Life, And I fear I have found on &nbsp; reflection That more than a half of the &nbsp; feminine sex Is absorbed in ideas for com- &nbsp; plexion. One talks about golfing, or &nbsp; theatres or bridge, And the hobbies that rival per- &nbsp; fection; But, alas! you will notice it &nbsp; slowly revolve To the latest of tints in com- &nbsp; plexion. For the modern young miss wears &nbsp; &nbsp; a perfect disguise, Defying the keenest inspection; &nbsp; &nbsp; In fact, all the charm of the &nbsp; &nbsp; woman now lies In the art of applying com- &nbsp; &nbsp; plexion. &nbsp; —Yvonne Webb. &nbsp; &nbsp;
How Finland Treats Its Women [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
How Finland Treats Its Women HOW many people realise that the women of Finland enjoy the rights that the women's organisations in Aus- tralia are striving to get for their sisters? In Finland women are the equal of men. They are brilliantly educated, and take their place in the worlds of art, science, and medicine. Women are mem- bers of the Finland Geographical Society, and of the National Literary Society. Added to which they have all municipal rights to vote, and may sit on town councils. Perhaps the biggest insight into the work of Finnish women may be gleaned from the "Calendar of Women's Work," published each year at Helsingfors. In this you find them listed as directors of big institutions, as magistrates, as car- penters. They are employed in breweries, and many are heads of spinning and weaving institutions. If the Finnish men are as energetic and as full of brains as their women- folk, surely in time the sons of such people will make of their land a nation to be reckoned w...
CUTE BUNNIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
CUTE BUNNIES HAVE you ever tried sketching your own designs? The fascinating border illustrated above was sent in by a reader. She suggests that hose who appreciate handwork in household linen or on clothing should try working out their own designs. "The Bunny" design is very simple. It will be noticed that these borders are composed of single units which can be used separately or repeated a number of times. These quaint ani- mals can be worked on nursery towels, curtains, cush- &nbsp; ions, table coverings, &nbsp; or around the hem of &nbsp; a tiny tot's frock. &nbsp; If the needle-worker &nbsp; lacks confidence at &nbsp; first, the given de- &nbsp; signs may be traced. When the de- &nbsp; sign is drawn out carefully, trace it &nbsp; upon the material by using a sheet &nbsp; of carbon paper. The design is then in readiness to be worked in gay &nbsp; silks or wools, and on seeing the finished art...
SWEETENING [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
SWEETENING &nbsp; We need a recipe for living, &nbsp; We need another cookbook giving &nbsp; The rules successfully to make &nbsp; A life as well as mix a cake. &nbsp; Ah, yes, with living, as with &nbsp; cooking, We need a little forward looking. &nbsp; Let's study living for a while, &nbsp; And with our labor mix a smile. &nbsp; When life is rather tasteless, it'll &nbsp; Be wise to sweeten it a little. &nbsp; There's really not another thing &nbsp; Life needs as much as sweetening. &nbsp;
As a SHEIK He's a SHRIEK Chevalier LOWER Storms Hollywood [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
As a SHEIK He's a SHRIEK Chevalier LOWER Storms Hollywood By L. W. LOWER, Australia's &nbsp; Foremost Humorist. Illustrated by Wep. Perhaps it is just as well that I was narrowly beaten in the screen beauty competition. My beauty is fading a little. One has to resign oneself to that sort of thing and be content with mem- ories. Oh, girls, I shall never forget the time when I was supporting John Longdon in "The Silence of Dean Maitland." Longdon took the part of the Dean. I was cast for the Silence. A FEW extracts from some of my Press notices: "Lower as the &nbsp; Silence was great. We could do with more of him." "The best part of the 'Silence of Dean Maitland' was the Silence. There ought to be more talkies like this." " 'The Silence of Dean Maitland' is good. The Dean himself is not so hot." I could go on for hours. And then I ask myself, why should I go on for hours? And I wait vainly for an answer. The Kleig lights will see me no more. I, who have leapt out of ae...
CUSHIONS YOU MUSTN'T SIT ON [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
CUSHIONS YOU MUSTN'T SIT ON CUSHIONS are relied on by many women to give a brightness and sense of comfort to a room. Perhaps never before has there been so much attention paid to making cushions bil- lowy pieces of embossed, silken-covered heaps of down. Expensive novelties, generally found poised conspicuously on the dressing-table of the boudoir, are stitched with colored thread to covers of rose shade taffeta or petunia. Some of the cushion creations seem just too beautiful to sit on! However, most of them do not suffer such an indignity. The box-window seat adds the finish- ing touches to the furniture and cur- tains of the room, being very ornamental in its design. A fashion which seems to have attracted most women is to have black curtains relieved with different colored bright ribbons, and plain black cushions similarly embroidered, adding to the beauty of the window-box seats. Glance into the shop windows. You will see cushions of every shape and color; big sausage-like cor...

MoTHER—Don't let your &nbsp; Boy accept "Wasted Years" in His Career ! Too many High School students with quite good In- termediate and Leaving Certificate passes are just staying at home. Yet these difficult years are really the years of opportunity—the years of preparation for successful careers—and they are passing by. Don't let your boy's life plans be held back by tem- porary conditions! His time is worth as much in business school to-day as at any other time, whereas it probably is not worth very much at home, or even working, just now. Whether or not he makes Business his life work, his training becomes a part of his educational equipment. If his father and you plan for him to go to the University later, his business training can be used in preparing his study assignments, or in securing vacation positions. It will help him tremendously in securing a foothold in whatever vocation he enters. It can be a "stepping-stone" to an executive position. Wentworth College train...
ARRESTED LYRICS OF LIFE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
LYRICS OF LIFE ARRESTED I wonder, if this shame should fall &nbsp; On me, as on this stranger here, &nbsp; &nbsp; How many of you would draw near, &nbsp; How many never come at all? Yet this must be the hardest blow &nbsp; The guilty or the guiltless know— Remembering some love, some friend, To find all that is at an end. Let jury, judge, his fate declare, But let him face it not alone, Whether behind a wall of stone, Whether again he breathes the air. If friendship means a thing at all, It waits beyond a prison wall To help with steady heart and hand &nbsp; &nbsp; Some crippled soul again to stand. &nbsp;
POINTS of VIEW The Feminists Change Front [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
The Feminists Change Front DR. CONSTANCE D'ARCY, speaking at the National Council of Women, said it was a sign of the times that women to-day were concerning themselves mainly with relief work, in contrast to a few years ago, when the intel- lectual and moral expansion of the community was their chief aim. The situation had a parallel in the war years, when women forgot their feministic ideals, their uplift propaganda, their missionary zeal, and succored those who were in need. Now, as then, they have sunk their differ- ences, dropped their plans for social legisla- tion and kindred objectives, in the face of a common need. Women have not given up the fight, how- ever. They've merely called a truce. They still have dreams of politicians listening sympa- thetically and giving practical effect to cer- tain social reforms they advocate, and further dreams of a society so constituted that much of the work they are doing to-day will be un- necessary. .* * * Oh, to Be a Nurse!

Last Night [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
Last Night Last night at dusk, I sought your gracious garden; And found a magic in that perfect place, The roses welcomed me with bloomy fragrance, With glowing beauty and an eager grace, While lilies, pale and starry in the twilight Were not more lovely than your gentle face. I begged your blossoms, "Is she rose or lily?" The lilies answered from their earthy bed, "She is too young for love, oh! ardent lover, And chastity adorns her quiet head." Came then a whispered chanting from the roses, "She is a very Queen of Love," they said. At dawn I sought again your dewy garden— &nbsp; Within my heart a singing, sweet and wild— &nbsp; The lilies were be-dewed with shining tear- &nbsp; drops "We weep," they said, "for loveliness defiled." But, red as love, beneath the sun's first kisses The roses nodded drowsily, and smiled. —D. L. WARAKER.

No MODERN ART in this EXHIBITION [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
No MODERN ART in this EXHIBITION The annual exhibition of the Royal Art Society makes a brave showing at the Education Depart- ment's galleries. Looking round before the official opening, many fine things were in evidence. SID LONG'S "Circular Quay," and his exquisite "Bathing Pool," with its dreamlike Watteau atmosphere that yet is so absolutely Australian; Lister Lis- ter's "Solitary Splendor," a large and unafraid landscape, all yellowy-green hillsides and trees round a creek that mirrors the trees in the water with the artist's cunning (this is priced at £250); Charles Wheeler's interesting nude, "Fragoletta," showing the clever study reflected again in a mirror, and the ar- tist himself looking in on the scene, a picture priced at £300; Alfred Coffey's "The Portal of a Great City," a large painting of Sydney Heads from the ocean; Charles Bryant's "Le Louvre, St. Ives," and "Low Tide, Corneau;" I. S. &nbsp; Watkins' charming portrait of Miss Eva Kuraz, daughter of the Cz...
