WITH MANY SUBJECTS TABOO We Still Talk Something [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923

WITH MANY SUBJECTS TABOO We Still Talk Something We have it dinned in us in our youth ---as part, or our education in what used to be called the .proprieties-that it is atrocious form for a woman to talk about ncher servants, save in the bosom of her family or to her most intimate friends. Of course married women know they ought not to talk about their children. They do it still, but they are more or less directly reminded by childless folk or folk wnose children are grown that this is tiresome. That throws out three very a.?'rbing subjects, subjects on which that creature knomwn as "the woman in the home" spends a good portion of her thoughts. if a man's wife bars these subjects then he must follow the recent rule of good form in conversation and refrain from motorcar talk, whether he owns five or merely hopes to after his next year's bonus. And few men have to be reminded that shop talk doesn't do at all at dinner parties. Many interesting disuetssions and conversations that might...

CARE IN CONVERSATION [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923

CARE IN CONVERSATION We can talk about plays, even morevis, provided the plays we dis.us. are those that most of the guests have seen, only heaven save the man or wom~an who tries to recount a plot or a scenario, or to speak boastingly of his personal ac quaintance with the player folk. And religion! That.'s as bad as ser vants and maladies. It simply isn't done nowadays. Our ancestors passed many .elf-satisfying hours, vented their s.peen and digested their dinners, over religiou. matters. One served up the hot joint to the tune of predestination and sent on the pudding to the refrain of infant damnation and hell fire. Gouty oli gentlemen even drank their brandy discu.sing the orthodoxy of the sermon of the previous Sunday. But we simply don't mix our religion and social conversation nowadays. Plerhaps peojile never were so deeply interested in spiri tual matters. Perhaps we are on the eve nf some sort of religions awakening and maybe it is because we know that it is a subject very...

THE FLESH THE DEVIL, AND THE PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923

THE FLESH. THE DEVIL, AND THE PACIFIC. The second of our books also has the merit of dealing with unusual scenes. The writer wanders through the Mar qluesas. It is not quite so attractive as the first, perhaps because the author, in a breezy. irresponsible nar rative, makes us feel tco keenly the tragedy of the white man's treatment of those most attractive children of the human race. There are casual and vivid pictures of conditions to which the mandate system of the League of Natt ns, even if it. be effective, comes almost too late to relieve.. The whites are shown to be divided into two camps. There is a struggle going on between the slack Govern ment officials (mainly French) and the get-rich-quick trader on the one hand and the missionaries on the other. To complicate the problem some of the missionaries are Mormon. Most of the mnodern missionares try to interfere as little as possible with healthy tribal customs, but the plantations are dis turbing them, and the gaudy prints a...

ADELAIDE'S FINE ORCHESTRA PRAISED Mr. Savery's Plea For Assistance [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923

ADELAIDE'S FINE ORCHESTRA PRAISED Mr. Savery's Plea For Assistance 'The musical instinct of the A Commonwealth." declares Mr. interesting article. Mr. Savery, manager, also discusses the New S There iq little doubt in the mind of Mr. Savery that the New South Wales Orchestra had been exploited by foreigners. He thinks it probable that it would still be an active force had the idea of permanence been instilled into the members. "Sydney doubtless is off the musical map of Australia today," he says, "but the position is that in South Australia we have the only representative orches tra in the Commonwealth. "'When our orchestra gets sufficiently on its feet it should given an impetus to musical Australia. I would like to see arrangements made to enable us to tour the States at frequent intervals.

EDUCATE AGAINST WAR To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923

EDUCATE AGAINST WAR To the Editor. Mr. Edwin Ashby --In your issue of Au gust 1, Mr. Birrell is reoprted to have asked the Premier to consult with the Minister of Education with a view to tak ing steps to inculcate the spirit of peace, and the doctrine of he futility of war, as a means of settling international dispute-, in the minds of children attending the State schools. I congratulate Mr. Birrell on his very wise suggestion. 'The reply of the Premier (if correctly reported) suggests that he consides that the posshbility of doing away with war between civilsed nations is simply a "pious" ideal, and not to be viewed as a practical proposition. Allow mie to point out that the reply of the Pre mier (as reported) is a strong evidence of the need of the teaching advocated by Mr. Birrell. Surely the historic instances where the methods of "conciliation and goodwill" have been tried ( iwa?ys I believe with success) should be taught in our schools? Again, the rising generation need to kn...
