SELECTING COLOUR SCHEMES NEED FOR CAREFUL PLANNING [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
SELECTING COLOUR SCHEMES NEED FOR CAREFUL PLANNING Colour schemes for summer out fits need careful planning now that it is no longer a question of matching everything with one chosen colour, but of choosing one basic colour and introducing oth ers that are just right to strike a lively note of contrast, or chime in with a delightful haimony. Some women, unsure of their taste in this direction, 'play safe' with col ours, and merely achieve monotony in their appearance. Others are a little too bold, and bring In a bright but discordant colour that upsets the whole plan. If you have decided on a main col our for your new outfit the following colour details selected by four know ledgeable women in their respective dress plans may afford some guidance: The first woman lives in a town, and has determined on black as a bas ic colour ot her wardrobe. She is choosing blouses in three different colours to wear with her black suit. One is in cherry washing silk, a sec ond is in white voile, an...

WHY WE FIGHT War Aims of the Allies MR. ABBOTT'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
WHY IE FIOHT War Aims of the Allies MR. ABBOTT'S VIEWS Speaking at the Wlngen Bush tnert's Carnival, the President, Mr. J. P. Abbott, acid that when he performed a similar ceremony last year he said it was the wish of all that pea:e might reign on earth and that the nations would not be embroiled in war. The carnival was held three months after the Munich agreement be tween Germany, Italy, France and Britain. At that time no man had worked harder or more faithfully to preserve tho ideals of peace than the Prime Minister of Great Britain, Mr. Cham berlain. There were some people who criticised him for his efforts and said that in flying to the Continent to meet Hitler he lowered the prestige of Bri tain and her Allies, and that his ef forts would be vain and futile. 'To me the matter never appeared In that light,' said Mr. Abbott. 'It seemed to me that Mr. Chamberlain was exploring every avenue to pre vent the tragedy of the world war. However, war was not to be averted. The Minister...

Hasklns, a novelist and poet living at Crow borough (Sussex), was listening to the Empire on Christmas Day, she heard his Majesty quote the following lines: » 'I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year, 'Give me light that I may tread safely into the un known.' . And he replied, 'Go out into, the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way'.' Miss Hasklns said to-day that the quotation sounded familiar, but that she did not realise immediately that she herself had written the lines as an introduction to a volume of verse called 'The Desert,' which was pri vately printed and circulated many years ago. Miss Haskins said that the poem containing the quotation was called 'God Knows.' She confessed that she remembered only vaguely the cir cumstances in which the lines were written.

Wounded Left To Die Of Cold. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
Wounded Left To Die Of Cold The 'Times' correspondent in Stockholm reports that the Finns note that the Russians take little care of their wounded, who are left to die of cold and exposure. This difference is exemplified by the absence of identification badges, which are customary in other ar mies. Plucky and determined as is the re sistance- which the Finns are making to the invasion by the numericallysu perior forces of the Russians, the suc cess which appears to have attended their campaigns against such odds, has evoked enthusiastic admiration from the British public. Commenting on the laconic but sig nificent claim in the Finnish official communique regarding operations at Leiksa 'operations have moved to the other side of the frontier.' the 'Even- ing Standard' says that Finland 'has taught the invader that behind the forests and ice there is a band of free men, ready to defend their independ ence.'

RED OFFICIAL DISMISSED Pact With Germany Disliked LONDON, Dec. 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
RED OFFICIAL DISMISSED Pact With Germany Disliked ('Mercury' Service.) LONDON, Dec. 27. It is revealed in Moscow that the Counsellor to the Soviet Em bassy in Berlin (M. Astakoff) has been dismissed. He was Charge d'Affairs in Berlin during the negotiations that led up to the Russo-German Pact. According to the Moscow corres pondent of the 'New York Times' the Pact with Germany is becoming in creasingly unpopular with the Russian people. Rightly or wrongly, they are asso ciating the presenL shortage of butter, sugar and milk in Moscow, which is more extensive than usual, with the German Pact and the Finnish war. Although it is probably silly to sus pect the Germans of depriving the Soviet of milk, adds the correspond ent, the Russian citizens are noticing how Germans plunder tho stores of huge quantities of butter and sugar to send to their families in Germany. Tho Russian people are also asking questions about the deadlock in Fin land, and the absence of a revolt in favour of the '...
