Many of you have written some very good stories, but they are a little too long, so I would like you in future to make your stories no more than 200 or 250 words. The best letter this week comes from Joyce Buffet, of "Bundywalla," Berry, for which she receives a prize of 5/. Joyce, who until the end of last year lived at Petersham, is now on a dairy farm at Berry. During the last school holidays Betty had two of her friends staying with her. They went exploring one day, "and," says Betty, "we came upon a beautiful waterfall about 30 feet high; it was a marvellous sight, and yet, when we gazed around us, every- thing seemed so weird. We were en- closed by steep walls of clay and rock, while thick bushes jutted out from be- tween the rocks, making the gully so dark and unreal." Among many other things, Betty says she collects poems and photographs of prominent writers. Don't...

Our Weekly Golf Hint [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933
Our Weekly Golf Hint WITH beginners and moderate players, many strokes are lost recovering from sand bunkers. The thought of a sand "trap" strikes terror into the heart of a "tyro." If the ball is lying cleanly on the floor of a bunker it is just as easy to hit as if it were on the fairway. Do not forget that you must take a club with suf- ficient loft to be sure of clearing the bank in front. If the ball is embedded in soft sand or lie close np against the bunker face, close to the green, the explosion shot with a fairly heavy niblick is the safest. Aim about one and a half inches behind the ball, driving the club well down under it.

THIS PASTE TO CLEANSE AND POLISH THIS ANTISEPTIC TO KILL GERMS Listerine Toothpaste removes film faster IT is true that Listerine Tooth Paste will cleanse your teeth thoroughly and give them a marvellous brilliance and lustre. It is true also that it will remove germs from gum and tooth surfaces. But Science now says that such treatment is not sufficient to combat tooth decay properly. After such cleansing, the gums and teeth should be rinsed with Listerine (the safe antiseptic), because dental authorities have now found that the lactobacillus germ causes tooth decay. Listerine Antiseptic is fatal to this germ, as it is to all others. Then you know that you are killing the germs which cause tooth trouble and at the same time you are cleansing the mouth and rendering the breath sweet and agreeable. Made in Australia by the Lambert Pharmacal Company (Aust.) Ltd., Sydney. LISTERINE TOOTH PASTE o cleanse and polish LISTERINE ANTISEPTIC germs
Coveted Area to City Girls [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933
Coveted Area to City Girls ANNOUNCEMENT that the Lands De- &nbsp; partment intended handing over to the City Girls' Amateur Sports Associ- ation 10 acres of land at Maroubra for playing fields came in the nature of a shock to other sporting bodies. At one time City Girls were perhaps the most representative body of sport- ing girls in New South Wales. The fact that they organised a Girls' Week in 1927, at which all sporting bodies co- operated, and were successful in rais- ing the sum of nearly £5000, speaks for itself. This money was raised for the purpose of procuring grounds. MANY CHANGES Since then there have been many changes, and City Girls are more or less quite unrepresentative as far as the other State associations are concerned. Last year an Australian Women's
