WAS THERE a Laughing CHRIST? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

WAS THERE a Laughing CHRIST? JONES, an unknown painter, goes to the Wallace Art Gallery, London, and stands before Frans Hals' master- piece, the "Laughing Cavalier." On the other side of the gallery was a Rubens painting of Christ. Jones is struck by the sombre appear- ance of the Rubens Christ, and, recalling that he had never seen a satis- factory painting of Christ, he resolves then and there to paint a "Laughing Christ." First of all, however, he has to find a suitable model. He visits many galleries and talks to many people about his idea. One after- noon he meets an old clergyman in an art gallery. They get into conversation, and Jones describes the painting he is so anxious to execute. "A full-length figure," he says, "wear- ing a bright blue robe, because blue is a cheerful color, standing in the open country against a distant background of bright blue, sunlit, wind-swept sky. Bareheaded; the short, brown hair dis- ordered by the wind; a tall, lean, muscu- lar, manly figure...

Put them in a pail for half an hour, to which has been added a pint of hot water; strain through a sieve, and use the liquid to clean varnished wood. It requires little elbow polish.

BEDROOM in MUSLIN for "Sweet Sixteen" [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

BEDROOM in MUSLIN for "Sweet Sixteen" By MARGARET JAYE Just fresh from school, the lass in her teens is keenly interested in her bedroom. Her enthusiasm is fresh and con- tagious. Let her express her ideas in fresh, crisp organdie muslin. For a color scheme let her borrow a notion from the garden and choose the delicate tonings of the sweet pea. Fresh, crisp organdie, ruffled and be-frilled, can be used to charming effect in the debutante's bedroom. FOR the ideal background, the walls should be a soft shade of cream. Perhaps one of the most helpful rules for amateur decorators is to always use neutral tints on the walls. The most charming furnishings and finishings can be absolutely ruined in effect by an in- harmonious note of color in the back- ground. The floors will be charming if a pas- tel blue carpet is used, but, if this is not available, cover the whole with fawn colored felt. As a finishing touch on either the carpet or the felt the lass herself could make some gay hand- h...

An Editorial AUGUST 5, 1933. THE DISHONEST SOLICITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

An Editorial AUGUST 5, 1933.   THE DISHONEST SOLICITOR STILL another dis- honest solicitor has been struck off the rolls for trickery with a client's money. For years past the same thing has been happening every few months. We have had endless promises that some thing would be done about it, but nothing has been done. The regrettable conclusion the public must draw from these long years of unchecked filching of trust funds is that the ethics of the legal profession, though high, need some- thing more effective than a sense of moral obligation to back them up. The solution in part lies in the Solicitors' Trust Fund of £100,000 promised by the Minister for Justice. Every solicitor handling trust money is to be compelled to contribute a personal guarantee to this fund, from which the public will be recouped in case of fraud. But a trust fund only will not prevent the possibility of fraud. Some scheme of registration of trust money acceptances and investments should not be ...

SUCCESS in a TEASHOP Careers for Girls: requires judgment and practical knowledge [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

SUCCESS in a   TEASHOP Careers for Girls : requires judgment and practical knowledge BY OUR SPECIAL COMMIS- SIONER. For the practical girl with sound business training and knowledge of cook- ing, the manage- ment of a teashop offers an oppor- tunity of achieving independence. As in all things, how- ever, there are pit- falls for the un- wary. CHOICE of a shop site,   rental, capital to be invested, equipment and service to be rendered— on these things hinge the success or failure of the venture. Don't think that be- cause your cake-baking suits your own ever-ready-to-admire family down to the ground, it will pass muster with a crowd of prospective customers. Nothing of the kind. Cooking, like anything else, must be learnt thoroughly if suc- cess is your goal. There are schools that teach cookery and all the tricks of that trade, but, in addition, the girl contemplating the management of a teashop must have a sound business knowledge, keep an eye on market p...

"It's natural," said Bill. "You are up to date, if anyone is, aren't you?" Lilian had a queer feeling. She was right in the heart of realities, and she found them quite unreal.

Mrs. Catherine Green, Ex-M.L.C, says that WOMEN NEED NOT FAIL IN AUSTRALIAN Politics [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

Mrs. Catherine Green, Ex-M.L.C, says that WOMEN NEED NOT FAIL IN AUSTRALIAN Politics HAVE women failed in politics? That   depends on what aspect of politics we are considering, on whether we speak of women as representatives, as candi- dates, or as supporters. The question, therefore, belongs only to the first of these, since politics, as such, begin when a woman becomes a legislator. To the second, the question should be: "Are women candidates convincing?" To the third: "Do women give to their own sex the support really due to them for election?" Perhaps we should first of all con- sider the time that has elapsed since women have gained the franchise, and face the oft-repeated fact that woman has worked harder for the vote than she has with it. This is perhaps the worst aspect of the whole matter, but every- thing cannot be had at once. We should remember the long fight which man has had through history, first to get his vote, secondly to have true repre- sentation. R...

OVER the FENCE A Short Story That Will Give You A Laugh. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

OVER the FENCE A Short Story That Will Give You A Laugh. ABOARD the Newcastle   collier, "Five Stars," the cabin door was locked and barred. Inside, four members of its executive whose re- spective services on the vessel exceeded a quarter of a century, and a chirrupy land- salesman, sat in seri- ous conference. An edict had gone forth from the owners fixing the re- tiring age on pension of members of their crews at sixty-five. Within a fort- night Captain Campbell Muggs would have arrived at that particular time of his portly and pompous seafaring life. Within two months Mr. Richard   Swigger, the long, lean engineer, would be following suit. Mr. William Bluster, the mate, and Mr. Arthur Ignatius Grizzle, steward, cook, and general factotum of the craft, had each the best part of a year to run, but were as vitally in- terested in the dry-land proposi- tion being put to them by the glib- tongued, suave visitor.

Throes of WANDERLUST SAIDE In The [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

Throes of WANDERLUST SAIDE In The Seized by a wild desire to view "lands afar," and faced with the utter impossibility of so doing, I treated myself to a consolation prize in the shape of a shopping tour to decide just what I would buy if I WERE embark- ing on the big trek. For those who have already pur- chased a ticket, single or return, I herewith proffer some ideas worthy   of note. IN my mind's eye I saw myself trip- ping (not literally, I trust, though   gangways are chancy thoroughfares) on board a majestic liner, elegantly attired. My svelte form was snugly wrapped in a well-tailored coat of diagonal tweed. I chose a brown. After all, a topcoat must do yeoman service, and, therefore, despite the respective allure of that coat's compeers in royal, mustard, fawn and cardinal, brown it was, for 27/11.   * * * At that "trip" on the gangway idea my thoughts switched automatically to my feet, an abstruse and, one must con- fess, a sizeable co...

New FUR COATS Evolved LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

New FUR COATS Evolved   By PARISIAN DESIGNERS From NELL MURRAY, Our Special Representative in Europe LONDON. PARIS is already talking fur     forecasts for the autumn, but     with winter still upon them, Australian women will be inter-   ested to hear the latest fashion   trends. It seems that the swagger coat cut in fur has not had the suc- cess achieved by the fabric models, on account of the hulky look. So a new three-quarter style   has been evolved, looser than the classical fitted-to-the-figure type,   but following trim, slightly fitted lines. Heim is featuring this style, and also a long, classical coat in black broadtail. This is semi- fitted with just a little ease fol- lowing the figure. One of their black broadtail models just ready has a squarish shawl collar edged in silver fox, which builds out the shoulders and gives them the new smart look of height....

£500 PAID over to WINNERS Tangled Letters Competition [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

£500 PAID over to WINNERS Tangled Letters Competition The Tangled Letters Competi- tion was finalised on Friday last, when cheques were posted to prize-winners outside of Sydney, and three deserving charities re- ceived 50 guineas each as pro- ceeds of the venture. THESE were N.S.W. Community Hospital, Food for Babies Fund, and the Dalwood Health Home. Not only was the competition a novel one so far as this State is concerned, but the prize-money (£500) is easily the most liberal that has been offered for any newspaper competition of recent years. That the innovation was appreciated by our host of readers can be gauged from the fact that over 30,000 entries were received—another record for The Australian Women's Weekly. On Friday a representative of this paper called on those of the prize- winners who were resident in the suburbs and handed over cheques to each of them for £17/4/10, being a one- twenty-ninth share of the £500 offered for a correct solution.

MEASURING Divorce by DEPRESSION! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

MEASURING Divorce by DEPRESSION ! Is the Divorce Court a reliable barometer as to the fluctuations of the present economic depres- sion? If so, New South Wales is returning, gradually but surely, to pros- perity. IN 1929, which is generally re-   garded as the last year of normal prosperity in this State, the number of divorce peti- tions filed from January 1 to June 30 was 896. Two years later, when the depression was per- haps at its worst, the number of petit- ions filed had decreased from the corres- ponding period to about 800. For the half-year, ended June 30, 1006 petitions were filed in the Supreme Court Regis- try, making an increase of 12½ per cent, on the 1931 figures. Careful consideration of the position from various angles leaves one some- what in a maze as to how a period of economic stress would be likely to react on the problem of domestic life. One obvious conclusion that could be drawn is, that with hundreds of thous- ands of husbands deprived of thei...

Miss Bertha Clarke, who personally conducts her tourist parties in the East (Story appears in the next column,) Touring the EAST with WOMAN Courier Women in Business MISS BERTHA CLARKE is the first Australian woman courier to per- sonally conduct tours to the East. Miss Clarke lived in Japan for seven years, and she is full of enthusiasm for its beautiful scenery and for the hos- pitality of its people. She is already making plans for another tour to the Far East next September. The party of tourists which she per- sonally conducted through Japan dur- ing the cherry-blossom season were guests at several enjoyable parties given in their honor. One of the most interesting was a tiffin at a Japanese restaurant, the hosts being three Rotarians, two of whom attended the Rotarian Conference held in Sydney a couple of years ago. The party began with a Japanese tea cere- mony, which is a most formal affair. Madam Inoue, who was so popular in Sydney when her husband was Consul General, here,...
