As Man To Woman [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933
As Man To Woman j Daring the Women's Session j at IKY on Friday, Alan Kippax, J famous cricketer, will talk on the ] absorbing subject of "Sports- ! manship." It will be interesting to hear what he has to say on a matter i with which he is so conversant, and whether his angle will be that of the fine feeling which is supposed to exjst between man and man-and very often doesn't -or between woman and woman, which is popularly regarded as a missing quantity-but which is very often there.
Should We PRAY for PEACE or ARM for WAR [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933
Should We PRAY for PEACE or ARM for WAR No longer is prayer regarded as a purely personal matter to be conducted in privacy, or on those special occasions when people attend religious service, but everywhere men and women are asking others to unite with them in an invo- cation to the Supreme Being for con- tinued peace, happiness, health, and a betterment of living conditions. Opinions obtained by The Australian Women's Weekly confirm the efficacy of prayer. T'HE question of the practical value of prayer was raised last week, when the Bexley Council received a letter from the hon. secretary of the Bexley Con- gregational Church, asking for the council's prayers and co-operation in the general fund appeal. Although they expressed surprise, the Mayor and aldermen promised to com- ply with the request. The question of the efficacy of prayer was also raised at the annual conven- tion held at Campsie of representatives of 25 Protestant churches. Canon Hilliard urged the practice of a Chr...

THINGS THAT HAPPEN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933
FOR THE BEST EFFECT Oriental visitor to my drawing room was recently quite disturbed on noticing that I had placed a Persian rug so that its pile lay away from the light instead of towards it. This, of course, interfered woefully with the due play of light upon its surface, so that much of its velvety bloom was lost and its depth of coloring diminished. The rug is now posed the other way round, and the effect is most marked, its pile looking richer and its tone fuller. One should try one's carpet from different points of view before finally laying it.—Mrs. Kay, Lakemba. * * * THE WAY OF IT A VERY dear friend of mine has lost the prospect of a happy marriage through her own annoying habit of say- ing "I told you so." Her fiance confided to me that what- ever he did or said, the lass would par- cel out the annoying sentence. At first he was only vaguely vexed, then down- right irritated, and finally "fed-up," as he inelegantly said. He had foresight enough to look down the years when ...
WHAT MY PATIENTS ASK ME BEST WAY TO DIET [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933
WHAT MY PATIENTS ASK ME BY A DOCTOR BEST WAY TO DIET Question: What is the best way to diet? Although there are exceptions to &nbsp; the rule, it is a general truth that our weight depends on our food intake, &nbsp; and is influenced by the exercise we give our bodies. The question of diet, then, is not so much a matter of what to eat as to how much to eat. Many people cut certain foodstuffs out of their diet, but replace them with a corresponding amount of other foodstuffs. This is an illogical method of pro- cedure which meets its due reward. Most people have five meals a day, the three ordinary ones and afternoon tea and supper. Because the two smaller ones are not as fixed feasts as the others, we tend to regard them as un- important. As a matter of fact, two large pieces of cake and two well-sugared cups of tea can almost equal a modest lunch in regard to food value. The first thing in meting rigidly, therefore, is to cut out any accessory meals and to ob- serve...
BUSH NURSES MAKE OUTBACK LIFE EASIER [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933
BUSH NURSES MAKE i OUTBACK LIFE EASIER To city folk life presents nothing in the way of difficulties as experienced by those who live in the outback. Doc- tors and chemists are near at hand to rally to our slightest need: cars and telephones bring assistance to our doors in a matter of minutes. But the women outback are miles and miles from the nearest centre-even from the "next door" neighbor. The "bush nurse" ls, therefore, as- sured of a welcome, not only from the personal viewpoint, but from the prac- tical service she is ever ready to give. There are now forty centres through- out the country from which a bush nurse does a daily round. At these centres, too, patients are attended. The centres are equipped with radium lamps, arm baths, baby scales, in addi- tion to the more or less commonplace articles pertaining to their profession. Valuable work, apart from the daily round, is being done by bush nurses who have had the advantage of free Tresillian training, through the good of...

The PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933
The PRAYER Oh, sister mine, if we could know By any night or day, That just one prayer was surely heard And straight the boon would be con- ferred I think, with fervent eyes, tear wet, That most of us would pray. "God, keep us all from loving where The loving brings but pain, From pouring out the first and best On worthless idols, self confessed, And make secure the masks we wear, So that they be not vain. God, grant we grow too strong to feel The sting of vain regret, Or memory's pain that stabs by night, And does not pass with morning light And give ns freedom, so that we May utterly forget. God, make us all too proud for tears, For idle things are these, That make or mar no destiny But spend their sad futility As breakers beat through all the years On cliffs that guard the seas." —Nellie A. Evans.
Radio Licenses For The Blind [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933
Radio Licenses For The Blind A MOVEMENT is being inaugurated to provide wireless licenses free of cost to the blind. This is a step that should win the interest and support of every man and woman who has given a thought to the "eternal gloom" in which the sightless are plunged. The estimated cost to the Goverament of such a concession would mean some- thing like £600 per annum, but the point is stressed that this consideration does not come into the question at all, as the majority of the blind are not able to pay for licenses. Radio enthusiasts are invited to write to their Federal and local members ask- ing them to use the power entrusted to them to have free licenses for the blind made certain by an amendment of the existing Act of Parliament, unalterable except in this way.
