PREPARING FOR SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

PREPARING FOR SCHOOL   By SYLVIA LAY "School to-morrow!" said Mother, as I sat down for breakfast on the last day of our holidays. "Now I advise you to get your things ready to-day, so that there will be no bother to-morrow. Most of your books are in the cupboard, aren't they?" "Yes," I replied, sorry that the holidays had come to an end. "As soon as I have finished my breakfast I shall commence." And I did. Getting out my case, I polished it, and made it look quite like new. Next I hunted up my old history and geography books, the sight of which made me feel a little uncomfortable. Then out tumbled my text books, which I put tidily in my case. Next I packed PBIZE Card to Bede Keating (13), Rookwood Cemetery, Lidcombe. up all my old books and put them in a corner of the cupboard ready for use if needed. The next thing needed was my pencil-box. I could not find it, although I hunted high and low. "Mother, have you seen my pencil-box?" I asked. "Why, I gave it to you to p...

WOMEN TAKE To GOLF [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

WOMEN TAKE To GOLF By DOROTHY KEARNEY The growth of women's golf in N.S.W. during the past twenty- five years has been truly remark- able. FROM a few city clubs, which in the early days catered for society and wealthy folk, the game has in the in- terim become very democratic, and to- day is enjoyed by all sections of wo- men in every part of the State. Much of this progress may be attri- buted to the controlling body—the N.S.W. Ladies' Golf Union—with which all clubs are affiliated. From a very humble beginning in 1904 the Union now represents 164 country and 31 city clubs, with a total member- ship bordering on 12,000. At the head of the L.G.U. as presi- dent is Miss Una Clift, one of the State's best known sportswomen, and a prominent racehorse owner. The energetic secretary is Miss Day Boys, whose organising ability has built the Union into its present sound posi- tion. THEY ALL PLAY Many famous women golfers are to be found on the executive, including Miss Leo Wray, a former tr...

Two's Company [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

Dinah shivered and looked through the bushes to where the others were standing and saw him take the girl's hand and look earnestly down into her face. Then she turned and ran unseeingly along the path. HE minute Dinah saw Nigel coming along the platform with Sheila Vane she knew the day was going to be a failure. It was a shame really. because all through the summer she had been looking forward to the begin- ning of the hiking season. She and Nigel had got to know each other last winter on a hike, when her heel had blistered and she was obliged to drop back a little. He had dropped back, too, though his heel was not blistered, and so great was his sympathy for her that he al- most began to limp in unison. "You go on with the others," she had told him, "or you'll miss the train back to town." ''I prefer to miss it," he assured her gallantly, "so long as I have this slow motion walk with you." "Would you really?" "Honest. I would," he answered firmly, and offered his arm for her to le...

PARTY TO PHILIP HARGRAVE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

PARTY TO PHILIP HARGRAVE Philip Hargrave, the 10-year-old piano genius, is looking forward to the after- noon of June 27, for on that day there is to be a combined children's and grown-ups' party at the Cavalier, in King Street. On the upper floor the children will be amused by model aero- planes, jig-saw puzzles, and the music of the golly-wog band, and, if it can be arranged, Philip will play for the kiddies. The restaurant and the tea will be the gift of Mr. Vaughan, manager of the Cavalier, so that all the proceeds will help defray the expenses of the "Melody Cruise" ball for "Dalwood," to take place in August. and killing, and the even more deadly   warfare being waged in our midst to-   day, the fight for the necessities of life, which we call depressed economic con- ditions.

How SHALL WE TILT OUR HATS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

How SHALL WE TILT OUR HATS From NELL MURRAY, Our Special Representative in Europe. AT what angle shall we tilt our hats? That is a question which has been of paramount importance to women   in discussing wearing the millinery fashions of the last few seasons. The beret-on-the-back-of-the-head gave way to the sailor-perched-on-the right-ear, and for present wear nose- dive tilts and hats set square on the head are rivals. By next September, however, it is prophesied that every woman will show her eyes and forehead once more be- neath hats set well back on her head. Jeff, the brilliant young English designer whose prestige is now equal with the creative hatters of Paris, demonstrates this tendency very cleverly in the col- lection he has just released for the present season. The distinguishing mark of chic just at present is height, conveyed in all kinds of subtle ways. In addition to the endless variations of the fez, there are hats with crowns that are twisted and knott...

Will Bring Gorgeous FROCKS (From NELL MURRAY, Special Repre- sentative in Europe for The Australian Women's Weekly) WHEN Miss Isobel Elsom and Miss Sylvia Welling, the famous English actresses, leave London this week for Australia aboard the Maloja, they will take with them a selection of Reville model frocks specially created for the plays in which they are to star. Miss Welling, who is to play the lead- ing part in the new show, "Music in the Air," scored a great success in the late Miss Anny Ahler's part in "The Dubarry," which has just finished a run of nearly a year at His Majesty's Theatre in Lon- don. Among the models she will wear is one made of "tucray"—the new, per- manently tucked material, which has re- cently been launched by the British fabrics industry, and is made from the finest of Western District merino wool. Its color is pale mimosa yellow, and the sleeveless swagger coat which accom- panies the frock is luxuriously trimmed with red fox, the two heads meeting in ...

The Last CURTAIN FALLS on HER MAJESTY'S [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

The Last CURTAIN FALLS on HER MAJESTY'S SATURDAY'S last performance at Her Majesty's Theatre was an un- forgettable night—a night of memories. After "The Maid of the Mountains," the stage was darkened and then lit up again to show a pageant of the great artistes that had passed before the pub- lic. When old favorites appeared, the   applause became deafening. The ma- jority of them have become only names to this generation. A few were able to take their old parts and appear in person once more before the curtain. Pride of place must be given to Dame Nellie Melba. Nellie Stewart, a sweet singer in her day, appeared in the part which she had made her own "Sweet Nell of Old Drury," and she was given an ovation. Carrie Moore and Vinia de Loite were able to enact their favorite parts. Both looked as appealsome as of yore. Carrie Moore's years had touched her lightly, and she was once more the sprightly "Merry Widow." Many more popular favorites appeared again. Julius Knight ...

The MEMOIRS of a MAYORESS Looking Back on Forty Years of Changing Sydney Time makes dust or monuments of everything. This week Sydney girls are wearing the pork-pie hats which were the mode in 1890. There's your monument. Last week, down came the curtain of Her Majesty's Theatre—for the long, last time, a curtain which was rising gaily, gaily on the magnificents of 1890.   There s your dust.   What impressions of these rich, vivid, event- ful forty years would a woman gather in their passing? Sydney's Lady Mayoress (Mrs. R. C. Hagon) tells of hers in this interesting article. By MRS. R. C. HAGON   Lady Mayoress of Sydney WHAT are one's im- pressions since the year 1890?

This Backless VOGUE ! By FRANK LE BAUERED "O wad some power th' giftie gie' em To see their backs as others see 'em!" TAKE an average man. Strip him of coat, vest, shirt, and singlet, hav- ing first rummaged out a "dickey"' from Heaven-knows-where. Substitute said dickey for aforementioned garment deprivations. Turn him loose in any ballroom, any night, and what hap- pens? No, sister, this is not a recipe for cre- ating a ballroom riot, but a perfectly serious query. Well, what happens? Pro- vided he eludes capture by the morality squad, he'll infallibly be nabbed by pneumonia, and we can expect the crisis any day now, Mrs. Burns-Browne. Male flesh and blood simply can't stand such exposure to the rigors of these winter nights. "I told him not to take off his woollens, doctor!" wept the near-widow. NOT SO THE WOMAN But a woman? Ah! A woman's differ- ent. Frailer, more delicately attuned, greater complexity of the nervous sys- tem and all the other what-have-yous of chivalry. Oh, yes...

New Punishment For Smith Minor [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

New Punishment For Smith Minor "WHAT on earth are you up to in that garden?" asked a Cranbrook   mother recently to her small son. "Oh, just pinching a few dahlias," was the reply. For General Mackay, new headmaster of Cranbrook, has made an innovation whereby there is not only a gardening society among the boys, but the younger ones are set to work gardening in place of the usual indoor detentions. When the Rawsons were there Cran- brook employed six gardeners. Nowadays it economises with two handymen. The new system is advantageous to the grounds, and it is a healthy penalty and an interesting one. As a rule the volun- teers do the pretty, and those who are "kept-in" the dirty, work. Each of the boys at Harvey House has a garden bed of his own, and competition is very keen. Both vegetables and flowers are grown. Not even the masters are exempt, and one day during the recent holidays a passer-by found a member of the teach- ing staff hard at work, "so that there would ...

"I AM sure that there is not one of us who does not feel it is a very great privilege to help those men who gave their youth and health for us in the war days. There is nothing we would not do to help, remembering that the courage needed in the war was probably nothing to what they need to face their trials to-day."—Lady Game.

You Must Have LIKED US! Our First Issue Was Amazing Success; Suggestions From Our Readers A Royal baby could not have caused much more excitement than the Australian Women's Weekly with its first issue last Thursday. Its reception was unique in Australian newspaper history. MOST agents had sold out by nine the morning of issue. Extra supplies were rushed to all suburbs but these were snapped up by enthusiastic girls and women (and men, too), before the afternoon was out. The Australian Women's Weekly presses had to be kept running three days to meet the demand for more and more papers. Circulation figures reached those of well-established "dailies" before the week-end. When the mail, from thousands of appreciative readers, started to pour in, the office staff proved inadequate to deal with it, and had to be increased at once. Readers were asked to tell us what they thought of the paper, to let us know which features appealed most, and to help us make the paper what Australian women ...

THE OLD GARDENER SAYS—"Prepare Now" GOOD day, Miss. If you'll come round the garden with me now, I'll show you what to do so as you won't be getting into trouble before I see you again next week. Real fine weather we've been having, but it'll be getting properly cold soon, and you can't do much in a garden ex- cept prepare for better times. July and August is the time for sowing seeds. Still there's a good few plants you can be putting in now, and a sight more weeds you can be pulling out. Seem to have let the weeds get a bit ahead on you, ain't you? What's that? Oh, your husband's supposed to do the weeding, is he? Hm . . . well, I wouldn't leave it too much to him. Look at that there path. Best thing to do is to get the weed killer on it. Not much use rooting them out with a hoe. This is the time for all them jobs. Yes, you can kill all weeds with weed killer . . . Even in the flower beds, but be careful not to let it get on the plants, because it'll kill them, too. * * * NOW Miss...
