The NEW BOOKS AT A GLANCE Women Who Belong To The Back Verandah [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

AT A GLANCE By Turner Page Women Who Belong To The Back Verandah FROM the pen of Mrs. Elinor Mordaunt comes an original and entertaining novel, "Mrs. Van Kleek." We have waited long for another story from this novelist, whose writings are so rich in humor and understanding. The scene is set in one of those islands in the Pacific, where French, English, Arabs, Indians, and Creoles mingle in an exotic atmosphere. According to Mrs. Mordaunt, few people realise how little romance and unexpectedness enter these islands. "It went on and on, round and round, year after year, decade after decade. One met there young wives, light hearted, flower crowned, and fey with the glamor of it all. One met them again and again, hating it all . . ." The story pivots round Mrs. Van Kleek, proprietress of a flourishing hotel on this little island. Reputed to have more admirers than any other woman in the Pacific Ocean, she has even more friends. She regards all men, and women, too, as her prey, making th...

Short Reviews [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

Short Reviews     "Terra Firma." S. John Peskett. A humorous geography, after the style of "1066 and All That." Typical example of modern English humor. People "simply roared" at it over there. Here's the funny part about Australia: "Aus- tralia was discovered by Louis de Rouge- mont. It is sometimes called the An- tipathies. This means that, if a hole were bored right through the earth, it would come out in Australia. The con- tinent of Australia and that of Asia are often referred to as Australasia." And a lot more in that style. (Angus and Robertson.) "Round the World in a Baby Austin," Hector MacQuarie. A travel book you might enjoy. It starts with a graphic and detailed description of the sinking of the Tahiti. MacQuarie and his Baby Austin were on board. For this descrip- tion alone, the book is worth reading. (Angus and Robertson.) "THE Whip-Hand," by Henry B. Raine. Mr. Raine is a Sydney journalist, and this is his first book. The story opens with t...

OPINIONS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

OPINIONS Could all the minds of men agree     The world would want one sort     of tree;   And, if we all could think to-     gether, All men prefer one kind of   weather.   And yet, the beauty of the woods   Is in its thousand shades and   moods;   The earth is good, for many   reasons,   And most of all, its changing   seasons.

Connie's Letter [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

Connie's Letter My Dear Pals, As so many tiny tots have written ask- ing for painting competitions, six Prize Cards will be given each week for the best colored pictures either in chalks or paints. Each pal must select his or her own picture—perhaps one from our Children's Page—and set to work to paint it just like an artist. The Prize Letter for this week was written by Jean Hines (14), Mutdapilly, via Harrisville, Queensland, for which she receives a prize of 2/6. Jean tells me in her nice little letter that she and two friends visited Southport re- cently, and had a most enjoyable time. Here is a little extract from her letter: "We travelled over bridges, through enormous tunnels, and over beautiful meadows, while large stations were stopped at, and soon passed by." Jean tells me that the journey took four hours altogether—that is, from Mutda- pilly to Southport. Other pals to send in good letters this week were Lottie Rogers, of Wes- ton, and Lorna Lyons, of Waverley. Good-bye u...

Fun At Feeding Time [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

Fun At Feeding Time By JACK SMITH Chook! Chook! Chook! Do they understand that? Why, yes, of course. Just look! Seven turkeys raise their heads simultaneously and come running across the paddock. Are they the only ones answering the call? No! See the numerous Black Orp- ington fowls, hurrying towards this spot. Twelve Indian Runner ducks come waddling forward, quacking loudly. A number of Muscovy ducks, led by a grey drake hissing furiously, are also to be seen. Look yonder! How carefully the set- ting duck covers her eggs with soft feathers before leaving her cosy nest among the rushes. And "Cluck !   cluck!" Surely that hen is telling her little fluffy chickens to hasten. "Chook! Chook!" I call again, before scat- tering the grain high in the air.       Prize Card to Betty Ladd (14), 22 Seahill Street, Campsie. Gooble! Gobble!" replies the turkey gobbler, with outstretched neck. I throw some bread into the pond and say "Dive for ...

OUR EMBLEM [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

OUR EMBLEM By Keith Ford Little puffs of golden balls, High above the trees so tall; Swaying gently in the breeze, Along with all the other trees.   It is Australia's national flower, It should be placed in every bower; It looks so dainty on the trees, Around it flock the busy bees. It was Australia's from the first, And when the little buds do burst, It makes the bushland bright and gay, A home where elves and fairies play. Prize of 2/6 to Keith Ford (11), Post Office, Bateman's Bay.

A Deed of Kindness [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

A Deed of Kindness By Mary Gallagher In fairyland there is a queen for every flower, such as Queen Rose, who rules Roseland, and Queen Violet, who rules Violetland. Now the kingdom of Golden Wattle was without a queen, for the last one had died and Mother Nature, who ruled everywnere, was at a loss to decide who should be queen.. Twelve little fairy princesses had been nominated for the royal position, but it was hard to choose one. Now this is where Princess Silver Wattle   comes into the story. She was a very quiet, shy little fairy, who seldom joined in the frolics of the other fairies. When she was asked to enrol for the royal vacancy the other fairies laughed and taunted her so much that she withheld from doing so. Now, one day Mother Nature was sitting all alone, and a small butterfly became entangled in some bushes. The poor creature fluttered and called for help, but the fairies would not go near it for fear of tearing their pretty frocks on the brambles. Now it...

HANDBALL is among the       many activities played under     the Sydney Council's commu-     nity scheme, at Moore Park.     On Saturday, residents from the     nearby homes play handball in     friendly rivalry. The game is     not confined to women only.     Anyone can join in the sport,     and it appears at present that     the more there are a side, the     more interesting the game be-     comes. Later, when the players     become more proficient, serious     matches will be played. The     numbers will be reduced to six     a side, and the game will be de...

BUSINESS girls of the Jewish commu- nity are limited in the matter of participating in sporting fixtures. Prac- tically all councils and sporting bodies refuse to allow organised sport on their grounds on Sundays and Jewish girls are debarred from playing on the Sat- urday, which is their Sabbath. However, a compromise has been effected between the Maccabean Club and the Y.W.C.A., two of the largest sporting organisations. A series of basketball matches to be played at night has been arranged and will thus fill a long-felt want. PRACTISING FOR the hand-ball matches. See paragraph page 42.
