DEMOLITION of Historic LANDMARK [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

DEMOLITION of Historic LANDMARK By LOUISE SOMMERHOFF Burdekin House, once the synthesis of wealth and elegance, the symbol of social life in Sydney, is to be demolished at an early date. It stands as a monument of the transience of worldly glory, and of the uncertainty of human life and happiness. EVEN in its decadence the simple, noble Georgian architecture of Burdekin House delights the beholder. The ver- andah with the Ionic-capped stately fluted pillars, the panelled ceiling, the handsome Georgian front door, the skil- fully executed fanlight and sidelights, present a beauty of line, grace, and harmony that is most pleasing to the aesthetic sense. Standing as the somewhat battered old mansion does in a setting of modern flats and residentials, only tends to ac- centuate more sharply its simple stateli- ness, and one cannot help regretting that such a beautiful and interesting link with old Sydney should be about to be pulled down. There are those who think the old house ought to...

CHOOSING Between MONEY or LOVE For this week's £10 Quandary, readers are asked to weigh in the scales of judg- ment the value of Money and Love. Winners of No. 2 Quandary, which   produced many interesting replies, are announced below. A PERSON can have wealth, success, love, fame, or good health; but if she is not happy . . . these things are worthless. Some say you cannot be happy without money; others say you must have love. Certainly money and love play an important part in life. There is that well-known pro- verb: "When poverty comes in at the door love flies out of the window." Is this true? For the best solution of this week's Quandary there is a first prize of £10 and five consolation prizes of 10/-.   Here is the Quandary:— You have been in. love with a man for a number of years, and all arrangements are ready for a marriage in the near future. He is comfortably off but will never have enough money, and, at the best, your life will be the "Love-in-...

Seeing Our OWN Country FIRST [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

Seeing Our OWN Country FIRST Miss Lillie Johnson is an Aus- tralian who delights in the scenic beauties of her own country. SHE has been living abroad for some years, visiting her home in Sydney   at intervals. Recently she decided to stay longer than usual and visit the Northern Rivers. With her niece, Mildred Dunkley, and Mrs. A. Phillips, a visitor from Eng- land, Miss Johnson started off by car to Brisbane via Tenterfield. They crossed the Black Soil Plains and saw the new roads being made there. When rain falls these plains are like a bog, but an engine is now at work turning the thick soil into a hard baked road, by means of a mechanical contrivance that passes flame over its surface. The travellers took many interesting photo- graphs of the sights and doings that they passed on the road. They noted at Murrurundi Hotel an aviary in which diverse kinds of birds were kept, including emus and eagles with smaller feathered specimens such as galahs and love birds. The ...

Things that Happen Fisherman's Luck [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

Fisherman's Luck MEMBERS of our family were invited   by friends to go for a trip round the   harbor in their launch. After an en- joyable outing, they returned to the wharf, where, in the scramble to catch the ferry, one of the party let her bag slip into the water. As it contained £5 in notes, some silver and two pairs of glasses she was very upset, but the only thing we could do was to leave our name and address at the fruit shop near by. Six weeks later, when all hope of recovering the bag was gone we had a 'phone message saying that some boys had fished up a bag on a rod and line. We hurried down to the shop, and there it was, very much the worse for wear, but the money was still recognisable, and the Commonwealth Bank paid out on it.—£1 to A.P., Cre- morne.   Gratitude! SOME weeks ago, when the rabbit pest was at its height, a family, digging out, pitched a tent within sight of my house. I packed a billycan with eggs and sent it and a cab...

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

THE BODY BEAUTIFUL                 RULE the WAVES with a SETTING LOTION By PAM The change in millinery fashions demands a corresponding change in hairdressing. With flat, lanky hair the small hat is impos- sible. See to it that you keep your waves waved. The beauty of the Australian girl is pro- verbial—hers is an inheritance that Nature has endowed. Sunlight, fresh air, and the great outdoors have moulded a form that befits the setting of facial refinement and charm. HOW THE STARS "MAKE-UP". Miss Jean Dun- can, Film Quest finalist, preparing for a screen test. As a frame that com- pletes the picture there is now no restriction in hairdressing to an exacting mode—just make the waves and add the curls to suit your type. This is a welcome change to the short bob and shingle, that mono- tonous hairdressing that kept you to a style and cramped your individuality. Remember, of course, ...

"HOME AND BEAUTY" The only kind of beauty which is really worth having is the "home cultivated" kind. Apart from artistic considerations it is far too risky for any woman to depend entirely on her coiffeur, her complexion specialist, and her corsetiere, for her looks. At any moment circumstances may de- prive her of their services—and of her dearly bought looks! The simple treatments suggested below will, it is hoped, supply a long-felt want. All the recipes can be easily made up at home, but it is essential to get from your chemist the exact original ingredients prescribed in each.

...WHAT MY PATIENTS ASK ME SEEK THE CAUSE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

. . .WHAT MY PATIENTS     ASK ME **BY A DOCTOR** SEEK THE CAUSE Question: What is the best treatment for constant headaches? It must be realised that headache is a symptom, and not a disease, and that, therefore, the only way to treat it is to find out the cause. The cause may be wide and varied. Eye-strain is quite a common one, especially in young people before they realise that they need glasses. Digestive disturbances are often responsible for chronic headache, and everyone knows the headache of consti- pation. A most severe, and at times excruciat- ing, headache is e x p e rienced by sufferers from in- fection of the "sinuses" of the face and head. Migraine is an-   other trouble that manifests itself in a chronic head- ache, and it is a condition that needs expert at- tention. The im- portant point to realise is that it is quite foolish to treat a chronic headache with drugs without seeking to help to remove the cause. DON'T NIBBLE Questi...

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

LITTLE THEATRES   A CROWDED house at the Savoy last week evidently appreciated the wit of Van Druten's "London Wall," as rendered by the theatre group of the Chelsea Book Club. Particularly good were Miss Clarice Gee as the efficient senior typist who has been too long engaged, and Nell Bickingham as the pathetic little elderly client whose money has not brought happiness, and who is just a little "queer." Other parts were competently filled by Bill Clifton as the irrepressible office boy, Greville Spencer as the "danger- ous" lawyer's clerk, Jess Trenoweth as Miss Hooper (the girl who has all her wits about her), and Noreen Gardiner- Garden, Jack Love, Marie Hemingway, and Tom Doherty as other members of the staff. * * * THE plot is the good old melodramatic one of the cruel parents who for- bid their rich son to marry a poor but pretty working-girl, but amusing dialogue and original and witty treat- ment make "Uncle Anyhow," which Bryant's Playhouse is presenting duri...

CONSTANCE CUMMINGS Weds SYDNEY MAN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

CONSTANCE CUMMINGS Weds SYDNEY MAN When Constance Cummings joined the general exodus of well- known stars from Hollywood to the Elstree Studios, London, we understand that her mind was quite completely on her work. But her attentions have seem- ingly been deflected, and her marriage to Mr. Ben Levy, nephew of Mrs. Sep Levy, whose smart frocking and silver coiffure have been so much admired in Sydney society, has intrigued Australia. MR BEN LEVY   was at school with Mrs. Sep Levy's son at Rep- ton, in Derbyshire. As a playwright Mr. Levy has been ac- claimed by over- seas critics, and his plays have been produced at Holly- wood. Constance has had a meteoric career. She was born in Seattle, in the State of Wash- ington, U.S.A., and displayed the stage- struck tendencies so often demon- strated by girls in their 'teens. But, for the fair Constance, they were destined to prove lasting and effective. Unlike so many budding actresses she was not hampered by parental disap- pr...

GIRLS will be WEARING DILLIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

GIRLS will be WEARING DILLIES THIS year wool for undies will not vanish with the winter. Instead it will continue to figure, certainly not as woollies, but as a new note in embroid- ery. Dillies, as they will be called— and haven't they a fascinating sound?—will be made of fine voile or crepe-de-chine with a tiny all-over pattern in soft wool. Smart ones already seen are in the palest lettuce green, worked with most engag- ing little wool daisies in white with tiny yellow centres. Here you see a girl with her first set leaping with joy. Clever fingers can make these at home very quickly and easily by taking some very simple piece of a motif from an ordinary embroidery transfer and re- peating it at regular intervals all over the material for the new summer undies; after it is cut out, but before making up. A fine, soft wool should be chosen, preferably in white or some pastel shade to contrast with white or cream material

PRIVATE VIEWS "PEG O' MY HEART" [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

PRIVATE VlEWS "PEG O' MY HEART" ALTHOUGH, as is usually the case in   revivals, a little gentle cutting of several over-sentimental passages would be welcome, and despite some very super- ficial humor, "Peg o' My Heart" has many attractive and un- usual musical scenes, and is pleasantly entertaining throughout — a very welcome relief after an overdose of crook dramas and modern sex-prob- lem soul-destroyers. Marion Davies' "enfant terrible," Peg, would be perfect if Marion were still a flapper, and, as it is, is appealing. J. Farrell McDonald is a likeable father, though one is a trifle surprised that a rich beauty should have chosen him and his poverty from her many other suitors. Jerry, whom Peg loves, is a thrill, but never shows any signs of falling in love with Peg, so that when he suddenly takes her in his arms it is rather a shock. Irene Browne and Juliette Compton are the English gentle- women who behave in such an unbeliev- ably extraordinary manner towards the...

IMPORTANCE of MATCHING ACCESSORIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

IMPORTANCE of MATCHING ACCESSORIES Height and Angles of the New Spring Hats THIS year the ac-   cessories for a costume are of equal importance as the costume itself. The well dressed will wear correct costume accessories from early dawn to late at night. Even sport clothes of the simplest design are matched with the dashing swagger sport accessories. Hats, shoes and bags come first, then gloves, jewellery, handkerchiefs, scarves, hose and important bits of neckwear. Gloves and scarves are more in the spotlight this season, perhaps because, being in unusual materials, they are new to us. Everybody has gone slightly mad over fabric gloves. They are made of your dress material, or to match your scarf, hat or bag. You'll see amusing Scotch plaid affairs to pair with a plaid tie. You'll see large dots spattered over gauntlet gloves that are sold with an equally dotted bag. Gloves of pique, linen, organdie, and crepe-de-chine ex- actly match your hat and bag; your shoes; you...

We're SURFEITED With BRILLIANT ARTISTS This Year! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 5 August 1933

We're SURFEITED With BRILLIANT ARTISTS This Year! WE are being well served with visiting artists this year, what with the Spivakovskys, our own Peter Dawson and his brilliant Chilean pianist, Tapia-Caballero, and now Maggie Teyte and Tudor Davies. These last two have been concert-giving in Melbourne; but, I believe, have been taken over by the Broadcasting Com- mission for further work in Australia. PETER DAWSON'S recitals with Tapia Caballero have been worth re- membering as one of 1933's delights. MUSICAL folk really should be rather excited over having in their midst a soprano so famous as Meli- sande in Debussy's remarkable opera, "Pelleas and Meli- sande," which was first produced in Paris before an   audience which "went to laugh and stayed to jeer." De- spite this, the beautiful score ulti- mately won world-wide admiration. Maggie Teyte is English, having been born in Staffordshire. She studied under Jean de Reszke at the age of fifteen, and made her debut as Mel...
