Piano PRODIGY is human LITTLE BOY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Piano PRODIGY &nbsp; is human LITTLE BOY (Being an interview by our Music Editor.) Philip Hargrave, the 10-year-old boy pianist, who is delighting Sydney audi- ences with his performances, possesses an overwhelming love of a scooter. Not just any old scooter, mind you, but his own tried and trusted friend, "Skippy." Philip and "Skippy" have had many adventures together down the footpaths, and pathways of parks, and so insepar- able are they that "Skippy" was care- fully packed with the luggage when Philip started on his tour. Philip is a charmingly self-possessed boy, absolutely free from the annoying sophistication that spoils many a &nbsp; youthful prodigy. Lessons, conducted under private tuition, are a pleasure to the lad, and his especial delight is the studying of the French language. He first com- menced music lessons at the age of 5½ &nbsp; years, from Madame Henriette Marie Garnaut, who has been his only music teacher, and who is his guardian on the ...
NEW BOOKS AT A GLANCE Brontes Again in "Wild Decembers" [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
Brontes Again in "Wild Decembers" "WILD Decembers" (Heinemann), Clemence Dane's much-talked-of &nbsp; three-acter, is an absorbing play written around the Brontes—those blazing torches of genius that would have been blown out and put to nought by the withering winds, the mental and social desolation of the moor on which their parsonage home was set, but for the driving forces of Charlotte. With clear and decided stroke the playwright shows us Emily Bronte, prac- tical, but with a wise understanding of her brother's failings, drink and an over-sensitiveness to the blows of fate; Anne, the gentle peacemaker; and Charlotte, vivid (not so sure of herself as she would like the family to think), and hard, even with herself. Out of such material. Clemence Dane has woven a great play. She shows us the burning up of Anne and Emily, shows us the three sisters in their brief hour of glory reading their reviews. She takes us—this is the brightest bit of the play—with Anne and Charlotte ...

A Hollywood DREAM [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 10 June 1933
A Hollywood DREAM Knit yourself this delightful scarf and jumper worn by Jeanette Mac- donald. This jumper from Jeanette Macdonald's wardrobe is the first of a series of delightful notions gleaned from Hollywood, which will be presented to readers with complete directions for making. This very smart jumper is knitted in red, white, and black, striking a gay and becoming note of color, but the secret of its charm lies in the softly tied bow on the shoulder. We have used bows of ribbon and bows of velvet, bows of organdie and flowing scarves, but the combination of a loosely knitted scarf and a semi- tailored sports jumper aptly illustrates the originality—and the artistry—that makes Hollywood fashions so distinc- tive. HOW TO MAKE This jumper is knitted in three colors, black, red, white, to flt 32-34 bust measurement. Materials Required: 4 skeins white 3-ply, two skeins black and 1 skein red; 1 pair No. 11 needles, 1 pair No. 9 and one No. 1 wooden needle for scarf. Back: With black...

GLIMPSING A GARDEN Glorious shrubs of the vividly colored poinsettia made a delightful color con- trast to the smooth green lawns at "Boanbong," Palm Beach, during the week-end, when Mr. R. T.
