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

GOLF IS DIFFERENT "Pursuing the elusive pill," as P. G. Wodehouse terms the sport that has gained such a tremen- dous follouing, is a sport that is difficult for an onlooker to appre- ciate. The gallery is prone to scoff, and, in view of the fact that thc most ardent players are often women who prefer a limousine to pedestrianism in the ordinary "walks" of life, one can under- stand their incredulity. BUT golf is a game with characteris- tics that do not apply to any other sport. It is the game of the individual. The player takes the club firmly in her hand, hits the ball, and has then to deal with the result. She is not de- pendent either for assistance or setback on a partner or other members of a team. This aspect of the game results in two entirely different outlooks. First there is the thrill of encountering a variety of situations. You may be called upon to play a ball from the most im- possible lie—it is said, too, that the novice is sorely tempted to rival the fisherman in t...

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

MEDICAL Test NECESSARY By RUTH PREDDEY Miss Enid Wilson, holder of the British women's golf championship, finds that the strain of competitive play   makes the event an endurance test   rather than a pleasure. "My daughter loses two and a half pounds a day when playing in a major   golfing event," Dr. Wilson told the repre- sentative of an overseas journal. T'HERE is a constant undercurrent of discussion regarding this question of   the physical fitness of players to com- pete in various sports. That a medical test of some sort is advisable before any girl decides just which sport she is going to follow is conceded by all the prominent officials. Just what course sould be adopted is a question that is so simply answered.   Generally, when a girl decides to play any game, her decision is influenced by two factors. If her friends play one par- ticular game, she quite naturally wishes to be with them. The second factor is...

WOMEN COUNCILLORS Are Pioneers IN TENNIS Successful Executives [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

WOMEN COUNCILLORS Are Pioneers IN TENNIS Two of our most popular tennis players, Miss Louie Bicker- ton (left) has played international tennis, and Miss Nell Hall who is the City of Sydney singles champion. Successful Executives In appointing women delegates to the council of the N.S.W. Lawn Tennis As- sociation the members of that associa- tion took a step that is without parallel in the development of that sport throughout the world. MRS. ROLAND CONWAY, Miss Nell Lloyd, and Mrs. Warburton may be regarded as pioneers in the realm of women councillors in the world of tennis. Such has been the success of the ven- ture that other associations might well follow the example set in N.S.W. The appointment was made in N.S.W. following a period of growing unrest which reached a crisis in 1927. Women playing in the badge matches   and in interstate events were receiving scant attention. Little assistance was afforded to players in the former field, while in the latter, definite ...

How SLIMMING Affects MARRIAGE Knife-blade FIGURES Are TERRIBLE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

How SLIMMING Affects MARRIAGE Knife-blade FIGURES Are TERRIBLE Fron, NELL MURRAY, Special Representative in Europe for The Australian Women's Weekly. English racegoers are becoming cosmo- politan in the pursuit of their favorite sport. Who would have imagined flipping     over by air to Paris merely to see the Grand Prix at Longchamps ten or twelve years ago? Yet the giant planes plying between London and Paris see the culmin- ating gaiety of "La Grande Semaine''— that week of hectic pleasure with which the French capital winds up her social season. PARIS. IF such a thing were per- mitted in aeroplanes, "standing room" would have been over-taxed; for at Croydon there was a queue of hopeful travellers who had neglected to book early, waiting for them to put on extra planes. Driving out to Long- champs, with the air like champagne and the sun- light glinting on the trees in the Bois, it was difficult to realise fully the cloud of gloom and depression that han...

Cargo from CHINA COMPLETE SHORT STORY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

Cargo from CHINA COMPLETE SHORT STORY Illustrated by BOOTHROYD   By HAROLD MERCER THE house at Cremorne has a window with a fair outlook on Sydney Harbor; and, sitting there with the old man, I commented upon the lines of a sailing vessel lying over towards Double Bay, grace- ful even in her bare poles—a survival of the times that all old sailormen speak about in regretful tones. "Don't know her name," said the old man, "but there was a time when I knew the names of every sailer that entered the harbor. I knew the lines of all of them, so that I could tell them by sight—knew the officers and some of the men, too. Those were the days when the sea held romance, and brave tales the men of some of the ships had to tell. Romances that you could make a book of; and some of them I knew of personally, which worked themselves out in Sydney, here. But I was only mixed up with one of them, myself." He was a quaintly prosaic old man, dry, and patterned by his long life of careful s...

SOUPS Are NOURISHING and SAVORY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

SOUPS Are NOURISHING and SAVORY By MARGARET SHEPHERD When the members of your family return home in the even- ing, cold and hungry, they will appreciate the savory and appe- tising smell of a good soup on the dinner table. Soup is nourishing if carefully prepared, easily digested, and an economical dish on the menu. Soup making is, therefore, a very important item, and every housekeeper should know how to make it to best advantage. THIN or stock soups taken before a dinner act as a stimulant, prepar- ing the stomach for the nourishing foods to follow. Cream soups and purees are nourish- ing served with bread and butter. With fruit to follow, they furnish a satisfac- tory meal. Soups made with stock have, for their basis, veal, beef, mutton, fish, poultry or game, seasoned with vegetables, spices and herbs. The darker meats will make a dark stock, and the white meats—veal, pork, and poultry—will make a white stock which can be used as a base for vegetable soups also. Consomme is usua...

For YOUNG WIVES and MOTHERS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

For YOUNGWIVES and MOTHERS By A DOCTOR Despite the fact that feeding the family is one of the main jobs which a woman has to do, practically no scientific informa- tion whatsoever is given on the subject in the average school. IT is quite an exception for the average young wife or   mother to have any idea of the scientific value of any particular foodstuff beyond a general knowledge that milk is good and that a cer- tain amount of fruit is ad- visable. It is sincerely to be hoped that when the new educational curriculum is being considered, the authorities will realise the vital point that a girl's educational needs are not the same as those of a boy, and that a variation in subject matter is essential. What are the simple rules in regard to feeding a family? In Australia, where poverty is not so acute as elsewhere (except in the last year or two) there is a much wider choice of food than in European countries. Never- theless, a broad working rule can be quoted for all...

IT'S SPRINGTIME in the STORES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

IT'S SPRINGTIME in the STORES FIRST GLIMPSE of the   NEW DISPLAYS   The pageantry of Spring is being staged this month. It will greet you on city pavements, in shop windows, in suburban gar- dens and in bushland glens. WE will still shiver a little on "nippy" mornings, the westerly winds will cause us to wrap our coats snugly around us,   but we will be helped to forget   the discomforts of winter's last kick by viewing the beauty and     attractiveness of spring garments displayed in our city shops. In every store the spring fashions will be opened within the next few weeks. The indeterminate season that inter- venes, before we can revel in summery gowns, will be catered for by the most charming "swagger coats." Sydney Snows are featuring such intriguing materials as chicken-foot and dog's teeth tweed. They are just as original as they sound, but infinitely more allur- ing. "Swagger coats" have the new lo...

UNUSUAL Set of ACCESSORIES LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

UNUSUAL Set of ACCESSORIES From Nell Murray, Special Repre- sentative in Europe for The Aus- tralian Women's Weekly. LONDON. One ot Chanel's economy ideas for this season is the matching accessory set of hat, handbag, gloves, and neck ruffle—in themselves enough to impart distinction to any "little" black or navy frock. —"Studio Chanel Copyright." This set is shown in the popular white pique, which has the added advan- tage of laundering perfectly. I know of several women owning white cotton hats who send them to the laundry quite calmly, and get them back look- ing like new. Although white is re- garded as the smartest, some women pre- fer these sets in pale rose, pastel blue or green.

No. 5 She was happier there than she had expected to be, and wisely decided to take what life offered her without worrying about the future. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

No. 5 She was happier there than she had ex- pected to be, and wisely decided to take   what life offered her without worrying about the future. Illustrated by Dorothy Ellsmore Paul By EDYTH BAVIN WHEN Mrs. Pendleton Smith entered the drawing-room at No. 5 Bayswater Road there was a perceptible silence which, though it lasted no longer than a minute, was nevertheless there, a respectful tribute to a hyphenated name. Though the house was known to its guests as No. 5, they themselves referred to it outside as a private hotel, under which title, indeed, it announced itself in the columns of the "Times." Genteel, elderly spinsters and lonely ladies were drawn to No. 5 as moths are to a candle. There they found economy blended so carefully with gen- tility that their incomes seemed less negligible than they would have done elsewhere. There, on a pittance, they were enabled to live with a pretence of dignity that assuaged a little the reality of discomfort. The cuisine, adver...

Bogey of "Policeman" to be Killed [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

Bogey of "Policeman" to be Killed "Man in Blue" as Big Brother A comprehensive scheme for the training of school children in the duties of citizenship has been evolved by the Education Department and the Police, and is to be proceeded with forthwith. ONE of the objectives of the scheme is to inculcate into the minds of young Austra- lians the fact that the policeman is not only the representative of law and order, but is the friend, protector, and big brother of every child, a friend who can be relied on at all times to do his part in protecting the lives, rights, and property of citizens, good and bad, in every walk of life. Since the days of Robert Peel, who founded the London police force, parents, ignorant of the psychological effect of such conduct on the immature minds of their children, have been wont to hold up the policeman as a bogey to frighten refractory youngsters, with the result that many children have grown up obsessed with the idea that the big man in blue is, if no...
