A New THREAT OF Pirate TAXIS! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933

A New THREAT OF Pirate TAXIS! SYDNEY women who use taxis either for pleasure or necessity are very concerned about the proposed new police regulations. There seems to be grave danger that the city will drift back to the unsatis- factory conditions which existed a few years ago before properly regulated taxi companies put clean and efficient cabs on the streets. Everybody remembers the dilapidated vehicles (with frequently blackguardly drivers) and the outrageous charges that prevailed among the unregulated drivers. Taxis would refuse to run to distant suburbs unless paid for the re- turn trip. The minimum charge for even a short ride was 3/. Everybody suffered alike, including poorer people who had to use taxis to take patients to and from hospital. At the present time some of these in- solent old-time drivers are found in the streets, and provide a very unsavory in- troduction to visitors to Sydney. The better-regulated taxi companies are con- stantly harassed by these piratical dr...

BIRTH STUDY Was Once IMPROPER [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933

BIRTH STUDY Was Once IMPROPER A SHREWD hit at the present move to keep women off the board of film censorship was delivered by Mary Gil- more at this month's general monthly meeting of the National Council of Women. "The men hold that the Censorship Board is not a fit place for women, and this reminds me," commented Mrs. Gilmore, "of the days when I was a girl and Aristotle was not considered to be a fit author for women to read, because he dealt with the subject of childbirth— on which it was most improper for the minds of women to dwell! I thought of sending this comment to the papers," added Mrs. Gilmore, "but I knew none of them would publish it." Though there were reporters present, this part of Mrs. Gilmore's address must have been censored by the dailies. How- ever, here it is—in all its priceless elo- quence.

Poetry [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933

Poetry On a green bank of grass I lay   And from my fingers fed the   birds, Till shrill with fear, they fled away As closer brayed the human herds. So do winged thoughts a moment stay, Then flee the blund'ring rush of words. —Corydon.

Half a Moment WHY ONLY TWO? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933

Half a Moment     WHY ONLY TWO? WE have two sets of teeth during our lifetime because the first teeth   as a set would be too small when we reach maturity. There would be gaps between the teeth, and chewing would be difficult. * * * GETTING NEARER THE only thing that can be said of people who keep on predicting the end of the world is that they get a little closer each time. * * * SILENCE IS GOLDEN AN Excellent Rule.—Say nothing respecting yourself, either good, bad, or indifferent.

Houses Sent By Train [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933

Houses Sent By Train THERE need be no house-hunting in the rural United States. All you need do is order by post "House No. 1" or   "No. 2" from a business catalogue printed in colors, and one day your new house will arrive by train, all packed up in sec- tions and complete even to the keys in the door. Then, assuming you've bought a desirable site, your carpenter can do all the rest. Country people here would appreciate this service.—"More Ree."

NOTICING [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933

NOTICING I put my pretty curtains up to-day, The curtains I had dyed with loving care; I draped them in a new and charm- ing way And put a brand new cushion on his chair. I'd made a cover for the old settee— It was to be a wonderful surprise I'd worked in secret, 'hoping I should see The pleasure shin- ing in my man's dear eyes. When all was done, I settled down to wait For his return when westward went the sun; I ran to meet and greet him at the gate, Then led him in to see what I had done. I stood in silence, waiting for his praise, Waiting and hoping, as a wife will do;   He did not see, but turned on me his gaze. "You're tired," he said. "What can I do for you?" My disappointment? There is none to guess, For, as he turned away into the hall I followed with a prayer of thank- fulness, Since it was I he noticed first of all!

WOMEN in TROUSERS Brisk TRADE In London SUITS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933

WOMEN in TROUSERS Brisk TRADE In London SUITS LONDON. SINCE the announcement that 200 men's lounge suits were sold to women       in London stores last week people are really beginning to believe that the "trousers for women" craze will catch on here as it has done in the Unit- ed States. The suits which Englishwomen have       bought are so far in- tended mainly for     house wear, but there are signs that the fashion may extend. Paul Poiret, the fam- ous Paris designer, who years ago, start- led the world with the hobble and the harem skirt, has come out of his retirement to be- gin creating again as a protest against the fashions of to-day. This week he is in London, helping to launch the collection of 25 models which he has designed especi- ally for the famous shop in Regent Street—Liberty's. In the course of a chat I had with him during the showing of the collection, he de- &...
