Welfare Club At Raleigh Park [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
Welfare Club At Raleigh Park Welfare work among their em- ployees was first introduced in New South Wales by the Asso- ciated Tobacco Companies, when Miss Christina Fraser founded the Vice-Regal Club. Its first functions took the form of hiking parties in 1911. THESE proved enormously popular with the girls, and later tennis and cricket teams were also formed. The history of the Vice-Regal Club is one of consistent progress. The directors of the company have provided facilities of all kinds for the members at Raleigh Park. There are six tennis courts, five basketball courts, cricket pitch, hockey fields, and a bowl- ing green. For those athletically inclined, point score races are arranged during the Vice-Regals registered a win in this match against Rozelle at the Show Ground. season, and a carnival is held every year. Basketball matches played in the lunch hour between the various branches of the firm are at present in progress. The winners will be awarded the direc- tors' cup, an...
OLYMPIC CHAMPION IS CONVALESCENT [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
OLYMPIC CHAMPION &nbsp; IS CONVALESCENT &nbsp; CLAIRE DENNIS, who re- &nbsp; turned from the Olympic &nbsp; Games last year the proud pos- &nbsp; sessor of a world title, is nurs- &nbsp; ing her feet with the greatest &nbsp; care in view of the opening of' &nbsp; &nbsp; the swimming season next &nbsp; &nbsp; month. &nbsp; After a painful operation on &nbsp; her toes, Claire is now at home &nbsp; again, but whether she will be &nbsp; &nbsp; quite fit for the initial events! &nbsp; of the season is a matter that is &nbsp; &nbsp; open to grave doubt. Every &nbsp; &nbsp; member of the Swimming Asso- &nbsp; &nbsp; ciation is anxious to see her in &nbsp; &nbsp; action and feels confident that &nbsp; full recovery will mean further &nbsp; &nbsp; record-breaking performa...
MIXED CRICKET MATCH [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
MIXED CRICKET MATCH A cricket match was played during the week between a girls' team called Durraween, and a team of boys from the Darlinghurst - Woollahra districts. This is by no means a novelty, for it is on record that at Surrey, in 1878, eleven "young ladies" played eleven "young gentlemen," and the latter team won by only one run. Miss Janet Neame captained the women's team, and was responsible for taking eight wickets. In the recent match in Sydney the girls had the pleasure of beating the boys. Cricket is not considered, on the whole, a game in which either sex can improve the standard of their games when opposed to each other, and the New South Wales Women's Cricket As- sociation do not encourage these matches, although they are grateful for the help and advice they have received from time to time, from the various members of the Men's Cricket Associa- tions. &nbsp;
NEWCASTLE HOCKEY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
NEWCASTLE HOCKEY During the next two months, many inter-district hockey matches are being arranged for, and several metropolitan teams will visit Newcastle. The keenest interest centres round the Rushcutters Bay Women's Club, whose visit is arranged for September 16. It is regarded as being the strongest Metropolitan team, and the only one to defeat Newcastle, when tak- ing part in unofficial games in Sydney during Country Week. The Newcastle teams are busily en- gaged in selecting their strongest play- ers in an endeavor to win back their laurels.

removes film faster &nbsp; IT is true that Listerine Tooth Paste will cleanse your &nbsp; teeth thoroughly and give them a marvellous brilliance and &nbsp; lustre. It is true also that it will remove germs from gum and tooth surfaces. But Science now says that such treatment is not sufficient to combat tooth decay properly. After such cleansing, the gums and teeth should be rinsed with Listerine (the safe antiseptic), because dental authorities have now found that the lactobacillus germ causes tooth decay. Listerine Antiseptic is fatal to this germ, as it is to all others. Then you know that you are killing the germs which cause tooth trouble and at the same time you are cleansing the mouth and rendering the breath sweet and agreeable.

FIELDING MACHINE INSTALLED [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
FIELDING MACHINE INSTALLED Annandale Waratahs can be expected to produce some startling results during the coming season. Their policy has always been founded on very progressive lines, and now they have given a lead to all other clubs by installing a fielding machine. Fielding practice will there- fore start in earnest, and opposition clubs must look to their laurels. Field- ing has been the one weakness of the Waratahs in the past. With an all-rounder like Amy Hudson they have a bulwark of strength. Her bowling average last season was five runs per wicket after having bowled 97 overs, including three maidens. Her batting average for nine innings came close to the century mark, and in six of these innings she carried her bat.
CENSORSHIP IDEALS in BOOKS and FILMS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
CENSORSHIP IDEALS in BOOKS and FILMS By BEATRICE TILDESLEY &nbsp; &nbsp; One of the characteristics of the present age is said to be its restlessness, due to post-war discontent. Another commonly attributed to it is an inclination to fuss. AS regards this last, it is not unique; in other ages men have disagreed with one another over re- ligion, for instance. Still, it is true that many people nowadays are preoccupied with the idea of censorship and control and suppres- sion of this and that. The average man, so they suggest, must be firmly guided. Left to himself, he does not know what is good for him, or at any rate how far it is safe to indulge his appetites and fancies. Recently we have had a good deal of talk about censorship, both of books and of films. To hear the views of some people about the committee of three that is to act as the book censoring authority in place of irresponsible clerks in the Customs Department, theirs should be an exhaustive and exhausti...
When ROYALTY is ENTERTAINED [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
When ROYALTY is ENTERTAINED There will be many flutterings in do-&lt; mestic dovecots if Prince George visits Australia. &nbsp; He is reputed to be a good dancer, and have many other qualities that will make entertaining an easy matter. Australia has been visited by two members of the Royal family in recent years. We have learned that such people have many human, lovable traits that make one unafraid of the reputed high dignity of princes. WHEN the Prince of Wales was in Melbourne he commanded Mrs. &nbsp; Fred Payne and Mrs. Chirnside to ask him to their dances. At Mrs. Payne's dance His Royal Highness wandered away and got lost in the Malvern Hills. Admiral Halsey was nearly out of his mind. Mrs. Payne had an attack of nervous prostration. The Prince of Wales, while he liked to dance with strangers occasionally preferred to keep to the same few part- ners. Before he left England, Lady Milbanke (then Lady Loughborough) said, "Be sure to meet Mollie Little, sh...
WANTED—A New Charity IDEA! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
WANTED—A New Charity IDEA! Money for charity: everyone gives it, and most of us gladly. The well of charitable impulse is bottomless. Generous motives are shared by everyone. But most collection of money for charity pur- poses is done in the same old, dull, uninteresting way, and is not nearly as productive as it might be. Shrewd women of affairs know that charity collections could be quadrupled by some fascinating scheme that would intrigue people as well as touch their pockets. But where is it? It must be subtle, and indirect, and interesting— &nbsp; and it will be worth a million! IS anyone in the community invent- ing or speculating upon the next possible method of raising money for charity? There is a decided fashion in this sort of thing. Someone thinks of a bright idea, and then every other or- ganisation follows suit. Poor harassed and desperate charity organisers! How many weary hours you spend in plotting and planning! Give your bright idea to the world, and you fi...
EMPIRE Pageant Extravaganza [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
EMPIRE Pageant Extravaganza NO grass will be allowed to grow under the feet of the committee in charge of arrangements for an Empire Pageant Extravaganza, to be held in the Town Hall, on September 28, 29, and 30—and, if the success anticipated is achieved, on October 2 as well. The organisations to benefit are the Far West Building Scheme, the Sydney Hospital, United Charities of New South Wales, and the British Film Club (educational cam- paign) . At an informal gathering last week, when Mr. Frank Grose (representing Sydney Hospital), Miss Preston Stanley (British Film Club), Miss F. Howard (United Charities), and Mr. Hill (Far West Building Scheme) were present, preliminary arrangements were made, and these were confirmed and added to at a further meeting called by Lady Game and held at Government House on Monday morning. The extravaganza will be produced on a lavish scale under the direction of Mrs. C. V. Baily, whose experience in work of this kind will be an asset to the organi...
THE MIRROR OF SYDNEY BY JANE ANNE SEYMOUR [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
iFiirrcirrn ÍMSMül í « jaw ? V&lt; mt \i| BY JANE ANNE SEYMOUR RY i/*! ¿ww mu m THE writer of &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "Dancing the &nbsp; Blues Away" sure- ly meant some- thing more than a &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; reference to &nbsp; melancholy &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; moods! He must have visioned crowds of people, not all of them in sedan cars, who arrive shiver- ing and shaking at balls and parties, and who in a few minutes are glowing human beings. Sydney has had a shivering week, but the great number of dances which have been held have been an antidote for blue noses and blue finger-tips. One of outstanding note was the Jubilee ball of the Medical Society, held at the Blaxland Galleries. There were many people, too, who forgot for a moment, the wed...
Intimate Jottings Do You Like— [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
Do You Like— MR. MARTIN McILRATH'S bass voice? The introduction of flowers to the Metropole lounge? Mr. Albert Cazabon's appearance as a sinister mustachioed crook at Bryant's Playhouse recently? Rotarian S. R. Musgrave's statement that 87 per cent, of our brain impres- sions come through the eye? Vice-Regal Habits Most Governors' families start some- thing besides new charities. The Duffs started riding in public vehicles. When the little girls went to Mme. Kellerman's music class in an omnibus Sydney Society was shaken to its foundations. Then came the Dudleys. Ladies Honor and Morwyth went to S.C.E.G.G.S., whereas the rule usually followed was for Vice-Regal children to have governesses, or attend private classes. They also wore blue serge frocks and white straw hats, thus orig- inating to-day's law that schoolgirls must wear uniform, not vie with one another in the wearing of pretty clothes. Daphne and Diana Davidson started a craze for skating, and the De Chairs added surfing a...

FEDERATION MEANT International STATUS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
FEDERATION MEANT International STATUS By MRS. EMILY BENNETT Prior to the formation of the Australian Federation of Women Voters, Australian women had no claim for direct represen- tation at international conferences, as representation at these was on a national basis. Under the constitution of the League of Nations, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa gained the status of nationhood. The door was thus open to link up all women's social-political bodies that upheld the principle of equality of status and opportunity. THE federation was formed in Mel- bourne in 1921, when Mrs. Risch- bieth, of West Australia, called a con- ference of women from all the States to meet her and discuss the question of linking up as a Federal body. It was thus that the Federation of Women Voters had its birth, and from its very inception launched out on a policy of progress, the results of which have made it one of the most active national or- ganisations in Aus- tralia to-day. It is non-part...

BEAUTY and USEFULNESS as FOUND IN ARTS and CRAFTS SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933
BEAUTY and USEFULNESS as FOUND IN ARTS and CRAFTS SOCIETY It should be a matter of pride to Sydney women that so many of their organisa- tions, founded, perhaps, with tremors of uncertainty, have weathered the vicissi- tudes of time and achieved a standard of success that is at once a tribute to their members and to the work they have accom- plished. THE New South Wales Society of Arts and Crafts, now in its twenty- seventh year, must be num- bered among those organi- sations which have carried out their early plans, and which have continued year after year adding new and interesting branches to their undertaking. The aims of the society were—and are —to encourage various arts and crafts in New South Wales, to develop the use of Australian materials and motifs in work and design; to maintain a depot for the sale of members' work; to hold exhibitions and to arrange lectures on the subjects in which it was their en- deavor to stimulate interest. Membership began with the modest total ...
